CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - A quarter-century ago, Janet Fewell's son bought a small evergreen to replace one that had outgrown the space in front of her Winfield home.

It's time to find another replacement.

The Fewell family has donated its 25-foot Blue Spruce as one of three trees that will be used for holiday displays this year at the state Capitol complex in Charleston.

A lighting ceremony will be held Dec. 6 as part of the annual Joyful Night celebration.

State Department of Administration spokeswoman Diane Holley-Brown says the Fewell's tree will be used around the north fountain at the Capitol.

The other two trees came from the Fayette County farm of Al Tolliver. One will be lit at the south fountain, and the other will be decorated at the governor's mansion.
