Gov. Jan Brewer has officially lit the Capitol Christmas tree for the final time as the Arizona's chief executive.
PHOENIX (AP) — Gov. Jan Brewer has lit the Capitol Christmas tree for the final time as Arizona's chief executive.
Brewer called Monday's lighting of the 21-foot blue spruce from the Coconino National Forest a "cherished tradition" at the state Capitol.
Brewer says the ceremony marks the official start of the holiday season in Arizona, and a time for good will and gratitude, family, friends and faith.
She also asked Arizonans to be thankful for the gift of peace and security, and to remember the men and women in the armed forces who are serving to protect those freedoms.
The tree lighting ceremony in the Executive Tower lobby included music from a choir of junior high school students from the Herrera School of Fine Arts & Dual Language in Phoenix.

PHOENIX (AP) — A 3-year-old boy has died a day after being left in a hot car for several hours while his mother and a family friend were in church for a choir practice, police said Monday.
Officer James Holmes says the family friend had taken the boy and other children to a church where the friend and the child's mother had choir practice late Saturday morning. The mother had arrived earlier.
Hayden Nelson was not discovered missing for three hours, following the end of choir practice at 2 p.m. By then, temperatures had reached the high 90s, and the child wasn't breathing when he was found in the vehicle, Holmes said.
"It's obvious that the 27-year-old forgot that the child was in the car," Holmes said, referring to the family friend. "She was in a hurry. She had something that she had to do, and she didn't take a minute to make sure."
The boy was hospitalized in extremely critical condition but died Sunday afternoon.
Police did not immediately identify the friend. The case will be referred to prosecutors to decide whether to press charges, Holmes said.
"You cannot imagine what this lady is going through right now, what this family is going through," Holmes said of the friend.

The Westwood High School Honor Choir sings "God Bless America" at the swearing in of John Giles as Mayor of Mesa.
Janet Hagberg was the first person who defined the experience for me. I had lived through it, but I didn’t know what to call it. In a book entitled, “The Critical Journey,” Janet called the experience, simply, “The Wall.” My summary goes like this. Many people begin their walk of faith, and everything goes as they expected. Out of genuine conviction, they attend church, learn from the Scriptures, volunteer, serve, give, and become “productive, committed, faithful, Christians” (whatever that exactly means, who knows?). But somewhere along the way things go wrong. Terribly wrong.
You won’t find many Dr. Seuss books in the hands of high school students. But the books’ messages can inspire for a lifetime, like this one: “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”
