dear santa...

Hey, big guy. It’s hard to believe that it is time again for our annual holiday letter. All is quiet here in Jamestown as the islanders are settling in for the long, cold winter ahead.

Seems like you have been everywhere these days. From the shops along Narragansett Avenue to the malls up north, the kids report that you still have that magic way of being in all places at once.

I know that many folks here in Jamestown were hoping for a wind turbine that they could call their own this Christmas. Of course, it might be difficult to cram something that size down the chimney at Town Hall. Maybe you talk to the elves about re-visitng that project for 2011.

Please sprinkle an extra helping of goodwill and cheer as you circle the globe with Rudolph and the gang on Christmas Eve. Drive safely. Remember, the skyway may be slippery.

Our best to Mrs. Claus and all the elves. Merry Christmas!
