The North Pole has been bustling with activity and the elves are busy building toys and getting the sleigh ready for the big night! But Santa Claus is not too busy to take a few minutes to leave daily messages on the RPAR Santa Hotline that began last Friday after his appearance in the parade.

The Lady Techsters hit just 27 percent (18-66) of their field goals, including only 3-of-18 from the 3-point line.

Talks of Amtrak for N. LA

Bergeron, Nancy.jpg

When I was 5 years old, my kindergarten class at the Presbyterian Church took a train trip to Arcadia.
Best I can remember, all we did was ride over there, eat a picnic lunch our mothers had packed and then ride back to Ruston. But from then on, I’ve been hooked on trains. They’re big. They’re powerful. They’re determined to get where they’re going and, if you know what’s good for you, you’ll get out of their way.
Trains exude confidence. None of the storybook “I think I can” stuff, but instead, “I know I can. Stand back and watch me do it.”

“I’ve always decorated, even if it wasn’t but a few sticks I stuck in the ground,” Cardwell said.
But over the years, as she’s added more inflatables and other decorations that light up, Cardwell’s yard has become a popular drive-by holiday attraction. Some people stop to take pictures.
