PHOTOS: Volunteers trim Marco Island's Christmas tree

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas

— Over 30 volunteers from Christmas Island Style and the Italian American Club of Marco Island came out to help build and decorate a 30 foot tree during the annual tree decorating event at Marco Island’s Veterans Community Park on Monday morning. The tree decorating leads up to the 24th annual Tree Light and Community Celebration that will be held on Saturday at 6 p.m. at Veterans Community Park.

ok I am confused, why are some of you upset because some of the police officers held full time jobs somewhere else, retired after 10-30 years and then came to FL getting away from a scum invested, crime ridden city's where their lives were in jeopardy and then took a job where they can actually enjoy being in law enforcement? And for the record, Capt Baer did not make the necessary changes in the department's regulations, he was not a Capt at that time, which proves the point, Hunter has no clue what happened in his department prior, nor has he even bothered to educate himself, meet his police officers, etc. Hunter has never bothered to meet his police staff in the time he has been there, does that sound strange? And for those of you who think there are 30 officers, you are probably right, BUT they do not work all at the same time. You may have 4 officers on duty in each 12 hour shift with a supervisor IF someone on the same shift decided to take a day off, goes to training, etc. Geez,some of you are so sad!
