Happy Thanksgiv- ing and Merr y Christmas.

The Reporter received its first Santa letter of 2011 this week, from Caden Silvey, addressed to “Santa Claus, North Pole” and delivered by the helpful elves at the Rockdale Post Office.

Here it is:

Dear Santa,

Can I please have a AT- oT walker?

Can I please have a fishing boat?

Can I please have a superstar destroyer?

Love, Caden Silvey

Caden’s letter, along with those of hundreds of other Rockdale area youngsters, will be published in a special section in The Reporter dated for Dec. 22.

In order to compile the special section, the newspaper w ill need Santa letters from the public no later than noon, Dec. 14.

That’s also the deadline for students at Rockdale Elementary School to submit letters for publication.

A “Letters to Santa” mailbox will be placed at the entrance to the elementary office after Thanksgiving.

Kids ( and parents) are reminded that letters must contain both first and last names to be published.
