Hanson Police Officers were summoned to the North Pole (actually the Hanover Mall) by Santa Claus (aka Kris Kringle) to compare naughty and nice lists. Santa informed us that his lists are not yet finalized, giving hope that all of Hanson will be on the nice list by the December 24th filing of his flight plan.

We asked Santa how he gathered such a wide range of intelligence. He stated he could not give out all his secrets but did say that his vast network of Elves are the most productive information gatherers. The Elves are often found on top of shelves, kitchen cabinets, and the occasional wine bottle. Santa stated "The Elves report for duty after Thanksgiving. They report back to me on a daily basis. The rest comes from the weekly press log in the newspaper." And we thought it was magic. Have a safe and happy holidays from all of us at HPD.
