Timber…

The City of Vicksburg’s official Christmas tree, a 30-foot spruce from the yard of a home on Lightcap Boulevard and displayed at River Stage Plaza on Crawford Street, is on its side after winds snapped a holding cable during the night. It was found down this morning. City landscaper Jeff Richardson said his department would attempt to stand it back up for the remainder of the Christmas season. (Jon GiffinThe Vicksburg Post)
