Lorena Stark of Burkett’s on Colby Avenue modeled the “Princess,” a sweater by J.G. Hook, along with a Holstein, courtesy of Bellavista Farms in Arlington.

Kmart was having a six-day sale at the Everett and Marysville stores. A bag of Scotts Turf Builder was $7.88. It covered 5,000 square feet, greened quickly without danger of burning, and provided up to two months of greening.
