Featuring information about the first flight.

News Update Transcript

To all North Pole City Elves, those in Santa’s Village, in the Lower 48 and all around the world, this is your weekly update for the week of December 13, 2021. I'm your host Walter “Mistletoe” Livingstone, let’s go to press.

This week’s sponsor is Jarvis’ Wood and Coal.  Keeping you and your family warm for over 500 years.  This weeks special, buy one truck load and get one free.  Call 555-IAM-COLD to have your delivery made the same day.  That’s 555-IAM-COLD and your home will be warm in no time.
Santa’s Village Update, as expected from last week's report, the Workshop experienced a few more glitches this week.   Shortages on ribbon and of all things tape have been reported by the gift wrapping division.  Once supplies come in, a “All hands on Deck” advisory may be declared to finish off this season's gifts.
From the Department of Elfand Security, Santa’s Flight plans have been filed with all of the nations around the world.   The network feed to NORAD has had a successful test and all things at this point are fine.  “We are at a go status, with being AOK,” said Flight Command supervisor, Orville "Zinger" Yeardley, “everything is looking good and take-off should start right on time as planned.”
Work continues on the TAOLF.com website with the addition of some research based blog posts.   The DES Division of History and Research reports that they are ecstatic that they now have an outlet to post all of their research.   They could not be reached for further comments at this time.Also, the Naughty/Nice List and Elf Name search databases have been redesigned and are now available on the website.  Elves (and humans) around the world can now check their status and family name heritage and share it on their social media platforms.This reporter has to admit, the new changes on the website are quite exciting.
NPC Weather Update, temperatures will be warming a bit this week, but we do not need to worry about any massive thawing just yet.   Again, remember to bundle up and stay warm.
This week in Elf History, on December 17, 1903 the first airplane flew near Kitty Hawk, North Carolina.  Orville and Wilbur Wright make the first successful flight in history (chuckle, that’s funny) of a self-propelled, heavier-than-air aircraft. Orville piloted the gasoline-powered, propeller-driven biplane, which stayed aloft for 12 seconds and covered 120 feet on its inaugural flight.
The North Pole City Commerce Association will have sign-ups at their booth on Christmas Eve night outside their main office for anyone who would like to be a part of their 2022 calendar photo shoot.   Next year’s theme will be “Tigers” in collaboration with the Chinese Year of the Tiger.   If you wish to, safely take a selfie with one of these majestic creatures and submit the photo for the calendar, please sign-up with the commerce association.
All meetings for the North Pole City Council will resume their normal schedule in January.  The main topic for the next meeting will be the discussion on how to keep animals from wandering onto the service highways between the warehouses and the workshop.   Santa will not be present at the meeting since he will be on vacation; however, Edward Hinklemyer is expected to be addressing the council.
Updates in NPC Sports, the final Tinsel Football Game will be scheduled after the first of the year.   Teams are starting to form now for next season’s Snowball Games.  Sign-up today at your favorite pub or tavern.
Kick-off for the “Take-Off Party” will begin promptly after Santa’s lift off on Christmas Eve. Tracking and video will be displayed throughout the monitors in the park and center square so that you don’t miss a thing.   Temperatures are expected to be cold that night so be sure you dress accordingly.   Also, a reminder needs to be made that there will be absolutely no drone flying during the take-off itself.  Anyone trying to launch a drone will have it confiscated by the Department of Elfand Security’s - Security Detail and your drone flying license will be revoked for at least 100 years.  Once Santa and the team are away from the flight path around North Pole City, you will be free to launch your drones if you wish.
WELF-NPC would like to congratulate Mr and Mrs Herbert “Frostbite” Buttersworth  on the birth of their new twins yesterday.   Little “Snickers” and “Gum Drop” Buttersworth arrived at 3:14 p.m.and 3:16 p.m. both weighing in at 1lb 2oz.  Merry Christmas to the Buttersworth  family.

This is Walter “Mistletoe” Livingstone with the reminder: If you have an itch you can't scratch, It’s not polite to ask Santa’s reindeer for help just because they have antlers.

Have a good evening, and be sure to tune in next week for another WELF-NPC North Pole Radio News Update
