Everybody knows Santa and his elves love their jobs. What’s not to love when you make toys at the North Pole for Christmas Eve deliveries? All the elves in Santa’s workshop are loving life this time of year - all but one.
Buddy, the largest elf in the frigid northland, has become uncharacteristically unhappy. Buddy discovers he accidentally fell into Santa’s bag when he was a baby. Growing up believing he was an elf, Buddy had no idea he was actually human until he grew into a full-sized person. That knowledge, coupled with the fact that he’s a pretty bad toymaker, make him realize he doesn’t belong at the North Pole.

December 5th was the regularly scheduled meeting of the Nelson City Council. The agenda was short to begin with but became shorter as the meeting progressed. The council was scheduled to hear the engineer’s report on the drainage issues on Cherokee and School streets. He was unable to attend the meeting because of a death in his family.

NORTH POLE — Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus — and the U.S. Postal Service can help you prove it when Santa replies to your child’s letter — complete with a North Pole postmark.
Here are the steps for your child to get a letter back from Santa:
1. Have your child write a letter to Santa and place it in an envelope addressed to: Santa Claus, North Pole.
2. Later, when alone, open the envelope and write a personalized response.
