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 6, 2021. I'm your host Walter “Mistletoe” Livingstone and let’s go to press.

This week's news is sponsored by Dr. Twinklestein’s Family Medical Center.  A center for all your medical needs.   Open 24 hours / day, 7 days a week. From sleep disorders to sugar overdose, we treat it all  Dr. Twinklestein has over 400 years of experience in the medical field and has seen millions of North Pole City elves, and is there when you need him.
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.”
With the new appointment of the site’s webmaster, big changes have been noticed on TAOLF.com.  The site has been redesigned and a new page has been finally added for Rudolph.  If you have not been on the site lately, you should check out the new changes.
As predicted, the temperatures have dropped.  Please make sure to stay bundled up.  Only go outside when needed and bring all pets indoors.  Check on your neighbors often and make sure you have plenty of coal or wood for heat.
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.
North Pole City Commerce association reported a great turn out at their breakfast this month.   They wish that every month was so well attended, but all are excited for the things planned for the “After Take-Off” party on Christmas Eve.   
North Pole City Council is holding a special meeting on Friday to review the application for a new shopping area on Candle Light Road.   This new center will have a more efficient heating and water systems that will allow the business to move into the indoor shops that will be designed to look like the exteriors of their existing establishments.
This week in NPC sports, the number 1 Livingstone pirates took on the number 2 Hinklemeyer Falcons.  The game was considered a draw due to work schedules and will be rescheduled in coming weeks starting up in the third quarter with a score of 5 to 5.   The game will probably be rescheduled for after December 24.
The shops on Pine Tree Lane will be offering an 80% discount on all 2021 clothing this week.  They are hoping to sell out to make room for 2022 styles that are thought to be shipped in January.   Stop by if you would like to pick up some new work clothes or for some last minute shopping ideas.
Turning 470 this week, WELF-NPC would like to wish a very happy birthday to Mildred “Tippy Toes” Crockleminer.   We wish you many, many more happy years.

This is Walter “Mistletoe” Livingstone with the reminder: If the snow is white, it is alright to consume, if the snow is yellow, you should get a broom.

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