Santa Claus made a quick visit Monday to Marion Elementary School as students asked him questions about Christmas. After Santa read “’Twas the Night Before Christmas” and answered questions, the jolly old elf gave each student a candy cane.

Julia Zeiner scored 31 points and Lindsay Hett added 14 Friday, but the Marion High School girls’ basketball team fell to third-ranked Moundridge. The Marion boys, led by Elliot Hett (18 points), Isaac Hett (16), and Luke Gordon (12). were in the game until the end but lost.

Dear Santa,

For Christmas, I would like an iPod and a cell phone or an iPod Shuffle. Me and my sister Calli are going to leave some cookies. How many reindeer do you have??? I like Rudolph. I love you!!!
