Maybe you havenâ€™t been as good a boy or girl as you should have been this year. But how can you get back into Santaâ€™s good graces?
Santa is in trouble. His little house is in need of repair and his local elves are dwindling.
Santa is looking for a few good men ... er, big boys and girls to help him keep the little ones coming to ask for their heartâ€™s desire this Christmas.
The Santa house has been an institution at the courthouse for at least 60 years, according to Mrs. Santa Claus, aka Jill Winebrenner.
A series of break-ins Sunday night have Columbia City police asking for help in locating and arresting a suspect.
According to Det. Tim Longenbaugh of the Columbia City Police Department four homes and one business were broken into Sunday evening between 8 and 9 p.m.
So far, he said only minor items, small amounts of cash and loose change, have been reported missing.
Unlike a series of break-ins last month in the city, Longenbaugh said no one was home during the recent incidents.
