|Production out of the workshop is on schedule. The package satellites are now at 94% capacity. Jackson “Skippy” Baxter reports, “oh yeah, we will make the schedule as usual. Probably will have a surplus as well.” Sounds like everything will be fine this season, but this reporter has a feeling that there may be some overconfidence this year.|
|The Department of Elfland Security has again appointed a new webmaster for the WWW/PR team. Edward Hicklemyer states, “The Assembly and Santa were getting a bit frustrated with the website. There is such a backlog of information that needs to be posted so we made a few changes. The great thing about working here at Santa’s village is there is always work to be done. We have confidence in this new change and foresee great things here in the near future.”|

|This week in Elf History, On December 8, 1980 - John Lennon, a former member of the Beatles, the rock group that transformed popular music in the 1960s, is shot and killed by an obsessed fan in New York City. The 40-year-old artist was entering his luxury Manhattan apartment building when the gunman shot him four times at close range with a .38-caliber revolver. Lennon was rushed to the hospital but died en route. The gunman had received an autograph from Lennon earlier in the day and voluntarily remained at the scene of the shooting until he was arrested by police. For a week, hundreds of bereaved fans kept a vigil outside the Dakota–Lennon’s apartment building–and demonstrations of mourning were held around the world. North Pole City Radio will be playing Lennon’s Song, “So this is Christmas” for 24 hours on Dec 8.|
