Santa Claus has gone high-tech

Written that letter to Santa Claus yet?
Well, fret no more over how much postage is to the North Pole because the Fort Frances Times has learned you can send your wish list directly to Santa Claus by e-mail.
“Ho, ho, ho! I’m finally joining the 21st century,” ol’ St. Nick said during a recent phone interview.
“Mrs. Claus taught me how to work on computers. I can now find out what you want for Christmas quicker than ever, and get those elves working on filling out those orders,” he chuckled.
“Now, if only I could deliver all those presents as fast I can surf the ’Net.”
Kids can e-mail the big guy in red at, or visit the Santa link on the Times’ Web site at
Or for those who prefer to write their letters by hand, they can drop them off at the special “Snowman Mailbox” which will be located at the corner of Scott Street and Mowat Avenue this Saturday during the BIA’s “Winter Wonderland” festivities.
After that, the Times has agreed to have the mailbox sitting in the office (116 Scott St.) so you can drop off your letters in person.
Letters and e-mails will be printed in the annual “Christmas Greetings” supplement of the Times, which will be published Dec. 19.
