2015 Santa Reaction Winner

Krystal Gonzales’ photo of her daughter, Jennings, sitting on Santa’s lap, was named the winner of the 2015 Santa Reaction Facebook Contest. Her photo received 152 likes. Participants sent in photos of their kids reacting to Santa/Mrs. Claus. Each photo was then put in an album on Facebook—then it was up to the public to decide who won.

Lost Clay County...

It used to be a bustling town, with stores, houses and a railroad. But years of change has left it almost forgotten and easily missed. In 1888, the currently-called Eldorado town-ship, which sits a mile south of the Clay/Hamilton County line, used to be called Eldon. It was, however, discovered that another town in Nebraska was also called Eldon. Both towns changed their names, with the other town changing to Elyria, while Clay County’s town changed to Eldorado.

Scam Artists Intrude on Clay County Phones

The telephone rings and it’s someone saying you owe a debt, and if they don’t get the money you owe, they’ll put a warrant out for your arrest. Not wanting that outcome, you pay the debt, giving them your credit/debit card information and Social Security number, and then you think it’s all over. You’ve paid your debt and now you can move on.
