Update from Santa’s Village, this week the elves from Santa’s Stables will be bringing Santa’s main sleigh outside to work on stripping the exterior coating on the sleigh to get it ready for a new treatment.  The special wax on the exterior of the sleigh protects it as it is flown through the many different elements. It is important that each spring, Santa’s sleigh is maintaintained and the protective coating is replaced to keep the sleigh in tip top flying condition.  If you would like to go down and watch them work on the sleigh, there will be an area setup for spectators.  Just look for the appropriate signage.
Edward Hinklemyer would like to thank everyone who came out on May 1 for the “May Day”, Maypole celebration in the city center.   “All of the ribbons on the maypoles look great,” he said, “this new look of the red, green, gold, and white make the center look very bright and vibrant.   The heavy duty ribbons will be certain to hold up to the weather and last until next year’s event.”
The Division of WWW/PR has begun work on the website for Mother Nature.   Mother Nature’s page will have information featuring Earth Day which has already passed, but all kinds of nature related information.  Please look for this to come out soon on TAOLF.com
We will be experiencing some sunny weather this week, but temperatures will be dropping down in the evenings as the skies will be clear.   We may drop below negative temperatures the middle part of the week.
The modern legend of the Loch Ness Monster was born when a sighting made local news on May 2, 1933. Loch Ness is a large freshwater loch in the Scottish Highlands extending for approximtely 37 kilometers southwest of Inverness.The newspaper Inverness Courier related an account of a local couple who claimed to have seen “an enormous animal rolling and plunging on the surface.” The story of the “monster” (a moniker chosen by the Courier editor) soon becomes a media phenomenon, with London newspapers sending correspondents to Scotland and a circus even offering a 20,000 pound sterling reward for capture of the beast.After the April 1933 sighting was reported in the newspaper on May 2, interest steadily grew, especially after another couple claimed to have seen the animal on land.Amateur investigators have for decades kept an almost constant vigil, and in the 1960s several British universities launched sonar expeditions to the lake. Nothing conclusive was found, but in each expedition the sonar operators detected some type of large, moving underwater objects. In 1975, another expedition combined sonar and underwater photography in Loch Ness. A photo showed that, after enhancement, an image appeared to show what vaguely resembled the giant flipper of an aquatic animal.Further sonar expeditions in the 1980s and 1990s resulted in more inconclusive readings. Revelations in 1994 that the famous 1934 photo was a complete hoax has only slightly dampened the enthusiasm of tourists and investigators for the legendary beast of Loch Ness.
The North Pole City Commerce Association will be hosting a Mother’s Day Brunch Sunday at 11 a.m. at the North Pole City Hotel Banquet Room. All elves who are mothers are encouraged to attend. Mother Nature, Santa, and Mrs. Claus are scheduled to be in attendance as well.
The North Pole City Council is considering the possibility of making some of the reclaimed bricks from the street and sidewalk project available to the general public.   It is estimated that it would take close to 40 years to recycle all of the reclaimed bricks and by offering them for sale, this may help fund the TAOLF.com website and the Internet connection for WELF-NPC North Pole City radio.  More information will be coming soon.
Due to the great success of this past week’s hopscotch competition, the North Pole City Sports is considering adding hopscotch to the future spring events.  Several individuals, as well as teams signed up to participate and the event was attended by almost three quarters of the elfs that were not working during the day.   Most of the elves that were working, came out during their breaks and lunch to watch the competition.  With such a fantastic turn out, it just makes sense to make this event available annually.
Silhouette Artist Jimmy “Peale” Birkenhead will be hosting a class on creating cut and drawn silhouettes at the North Pole City Hotel in the Lobby Friday evening at 7 p.m. Stop by and volunteer to be a model for a silhouette or to learn the best techniques of this age old art enjoyed since the 18th century.
WELF-NPC North Pole City Radio would like to wish “Dapper” Danny Darlington of the Division of Tailor and Seamstress a 400th birthday. “Dapper” has designed the most popular hats in North Pole City for the last 150 years running.We can not wait to see what his latest designs will be and wish him many more creative birthdays!

This is Walter “Mistletoe” Livingstone with the reminder: A bend in the road is not the end of the road, unless you fail to make the turn.

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