*Correction: The fabulous welded Christmas Tree on display through December 2016 was crafted and donated by Recycled Ranch Relics. The Other Toledo incorrectly identified the contributor as Rusty Relics.
The official end of the holiday season is signaled by the first Christmas tree on the freeway. MoneyTalksNews has 8 “green” options for that no-longer-fresh evergreen.
While you’re at it, vision:Toledo’s newly-minted Christmas Committee may take some of those outdoor decorations off your hands and give them new life next year. Contact Gary Whiteside, 360.355.7614

With Lewis County Board of Commissioners determined to cut funding to area Senior Centers after 2017 as a means of meeting their budget, outrage and protests have followed. November’s standing-room-only face off in Toledo did nothing to ease fears.
Last Friday, Carol Schulte turned to me and spoke deliberately.
“A few years ago, I was quite ill and depressed. Everyday my son would ask me, “Did you go down to the Senior Center?” and everyday I would tell him no. I didn’t think there was anything there for me.
“After several weeks, I finally went.”
Carol looked me in the eye and declared, “These people saved my life.”
We chatted a bit and Carol agreed to posting this brief exchange in the hope more people might be encouraged to tell their neighbors - and the Board of County Commissioners - just what these vital community centers mean to patrons.
Sometimes a whisper can be heard above the clamor.
