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 January 17, 2022. I'm your host Walter “Mistletoe” Livingstone. Let's go to press.

This week's sponsor for the week of January 17, 2022 is Itzel’s Ice Fishing Supplies.  This week’s special, 25% off of Ice Augers.  That’s Itzel’s Ice Fishing Supplies stop by today to stock up on all of your Ice Finishing needs.
Update from Santa’s Village, Santa is back to work at the Workshop.   After an impromptu meeting with all of the supervisor’s on Friday, the workshop is now in full swing and presents have already started to roll out and are being warehoused for next year’s delivery.. Santa has set a goal this year for the creation of 8 billion gifts and the newly appointed supervisor at the workshop, Ladimer Snerd says that the goal is very achievable.   Ladimer has been working at the workshop for almost 500 years now and has accepted the new position recently left vacant by Jackson “Skippy” Baxter who has decided to step down this year and open a new shop in town sometime here in the near future.   Skippy has been the head supervisor at Santa’s workshop for 425 years and we here at WELF-NPC wish him well in his new venture.
This week from the Department of Elfland Security, besides Santa’s return and work resuming at the workshop, the division of Construction and Maintenance has been working with NP City Council on the construction of that tunnel from the warehouses to the workshop.  If you remember, there was a work stoppage at the end of last season when a herd of Moose blocked this road.  This tunnel will now fix that issue from happening in the future.  The tunnel is complete and trucks will start rolling this week.  Edward Hinklemyer released a statement thanking the North Pole City Council for their cooperation in this matter.
The TAOLF.com website saw a couple of major changes this past week. A new search engine has been added to the site and the layouts for the Pinterest connection were rewritten.   In a post from the WWW/PR team they wrote, “These changes have been planned for a while and were scheduled to be done by previous web masters; however, Gracey Kimble and Alex Grumbly were able to map out and code these changes while Santa and the Mrs. were on vacation,”.   Personally I have used the new search engine on the site and it is working great.Also, Frosty has created a new page off of his web page with pictures of different Ice Castles and ideas.  For his birthday this year, Santa gave Frosty some acreage right outside of town so that he could build a new Ice Castle and he has been looking for some ideas and suggestions.  He found so many, he thought he would create a Pinterest Board and post them on his webpage.
For the NPC Weather Update, this winter storm we are currently experiencing is not expected to let up anytime soon.  So far, 12 feet of snow has fallen and much more is expected.  Please be sure to stay warm and well stocked.
This week in Elf History, today, Jan 17, We observed Martin Luther King Jr. Day (officially Birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr., and sometimes referred to as MLK Day) which is a federal holiday in the United States marking the birthday of Martin Luther King Jr. It is observed on the third Monday of January each year. Born in 1929, King's actual birthday is January 15 (which in 1929 fell on a Tuesday). The holiday is similar to holidays set under the Uniform Monday Holiday Act. The earliest Monday for this holiday is January 15 and the latest is January 21.King was the chief spokesperson for nonviolent activism in the Civil Rights Movement, which protested racial discrimination in federal and state law. The campaign for a federal holiday in King's honor began soon after his assassination in 1968. US President Ronald Reagan signed the holiday into law in 1983, and it was first observed three years later. At first, some states resisted observing the holiday as such, giving it alternative names or combining it with other holidays. It was officially observed in all 50 states for the first time in 2000.
This week in North Pole City Sports, the snow ball games continue with all teams competing in Snowball knock-out, snowflake race, and break the snow cap.  This week we have a tie for first place with Hinklemeyer Cocoa pub and Candy Cane Lounge with 68 points and the Sugar Bow in Third with 65 points.   Good luck to all contents in next week's snowball games.
North Pole City Bank is offering a new promotion.  Open a new saving account with the bank and get a free solar charged, battery operated hand warmer.  This is a good opportunity to start a new account for the little ones if they do not have one yet.  The bank plans on offering this promotion until the end of February.
We would like to wish Yolanda ‘Poinsettia” Darlington a very happy 650th birthday.  Yolanda has worked in Santa’s Village’s Greenhouse since she was old enough to walk and is an expert in growing bright red Christmas Poinsettia.   We enjoy your products every year and wish you many more happy years. 

This is Walter “Mistletoe” Livingstone with the reminder, Nothing is impossible, the word itself says “I’m possible!
