Flood-destroyed roads did not stop Santa from visiting the Jamestown Merc last night. (Duh, it’s Santa.) A massive crowd awaited his arrival while the Wild Mountain Kids entertained. Then the moment came and there he was. He listened to the children’s Christmas requests and was gone in a flash. But the people stayed to eat, drink, and be merry, singing the night away. Young Penelope Kohlhaas signaled an end to the evening by leading the singing of a rousing rendition of A-B-C-D-E-F-G, along with Beth Brotherton.
