Let­ters to Santa start in this week’s edi­tion

The Standard Journal - - FRONT PAGE - Staff re­ports

Kris Kringle is get­ting ready for his an­nual ride with presents for good chil­dren around the globe in the next cou­ple of weeks. But when jolly ol’ Saint Nick makes his trip with his nine rein­deer, how does he know what boys and girls want, es­pe­cially here in Polk County?

Santa Claus turns to the Stan­dard Jour­nal this time of year to help with that prob­lem.

This week and next, we present our read­ers both lo­cally and one in par­tic­u­lar at the North Pole with our an­nual run of let­ters to Santa, and so far we’ve got quite a large amount of re­quests from young­sters in Polk County.

So we im­plore our good friend Mr. Claus to pay close at­ten­tion to what chil­dren are ask­ing for this year, whether it be a brand new Plays­ta­tion 4 con­sole, or a stock­ing full of Shop­kins.

Ad­di­tion­ally, we thank our lo­cal ed­u­ca­tors and par­ents for help­ing chil­dren make sure their mes­sage gets to Santa in a timely man­ner be­fore Christ­mas ar­rives, and St. Nick is left guess­ing at what presents to bring to Polk County dur­ing his overnight ride.

Think your let­ter might have been left out this week? Don’t worry.

Any list Santa doesn’t get to see in this week’s edi­tion will be in­cluded in the up­com­ing Dec. 19 edi­tion as well.

Turn to Page A6 of this week’s edi­tion to be­gin read­ing let­ters.
