· The Carlisle Police Department reports that their Christmas tree pick-up on January 9 was a "resounding success." According to Inspector Nancy Iosue, over 200 trees were collected by four teams in pick-up trucks and delivered to the transfer station, where they will be reduced to wood chips by the department of public works. Approximately $900 was raised for the Carlisle Police Association fund through this collection effort, which was organized by special officer Mark Schofield. The fund sponsors, among other things, the police department's scholarship program.
