Nine-year-old J.J. Paris will light the California Capitol Christmas tree on Dec. 2 with Gov. Jerry Brown and First Lady Anne Gust Brown in Sacramento.
Ornaments made by Paris and his fourth-grade    classmates  at Curtis Creek Elementary School will hang on  the 61-foot-tall white fir from Latour Demonstration State Forest near Redding in Shasta County.
Paris said during an interview last week that he is excited to light the Capitol tree. He is the first child from Tuolumne County to help light the state tree. Read more.
