Cathi Utley is the general manager of the Hermann Advertiser-Courier.

Oh, Holy Night.
That sends a chill down my spine.
In other news, have you been naughty or nice? I, for one, have been extremely nice. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. What about you?
A reminder that the holiday season is hard for some people. Those who suffer from depression often get a double whammy. They feel guilty for not being jolly and have to deal with regular depression symptoms. Let’s send a special prayer out for them.
Last-minute shopping can still be done in Hermann! Gift cards, bath products, art work, candies, furniture, appliances, gas cards, home décor, toys, wine, whiskey and more can be found ‘round here. WOW, what a town!
Breaking News!!!
Santa can be seen flying around the world on Christmas Eve and you can watch!!
Log on to www.hermannadvertisercourier.com and click on the “Tracking Santa” button. That will take you to the North Pole and then let you watch Santa deliver gifts across the globe. Thanks to Hermann EMS for sponsoring “Tracking Santa.”
I will never forget going into Hermann Fuel Mart one Christmas Eve. Manager Dana, said in a sarcastic tone, “Thanks for the tracking Santa thing.” Her son was calling her every 5 minutes letting her know just where Santa was while anxiously waiting for him to get to the United States. So cute!
I am glad the weather has been nice. But do you think Santa will be too hot in his furry red suit? Do you think he owns fuzzy red shorts and tank top? Maybe the tank top has “I stop for cookies” printed on the front? What if the reindeer get overheated? Should we leave out a glass of sweet tea instead of milk? As I stated before, I have been ridiculously good this year so I need to take appropriate actions and be prepared.
Enjoy the children’s letters to Santa printed in a special B Section this week. I love their misspelled words and questionable grammar. Remember that we have asked teachers not to make corrections on letters. It’s just cuter that way.
Please note that Hermann will have an election in the spring. To be just, we have suspended the mayor’s column until after the election. Yippee, politics!!
Here’s praying you have a wonderful Christmas! Happy Birthday, Jesus!
