How to Confuse Santa Claus:

Instead of milk and cookies, leave him a salad, and a note explaining that you think he could stand to lose a few pounds.

While he’s in the house, go find his sleigh and write him a speeding ticket.

Leave him a note, explaining that you’ve gone away for the holidays. Ask if he would mind watering your plants.

While he’s in the house, replace all his reindeer with exact replicas. Then wait and see what happens when he tries to get them to fly.

Keep an angry bull in your living room. If you think a bull goes crazy when he sees a little red cape, wait until he sees that big, red Santa suit!

Build an army of mean-looking snowmen on the roof, holding signs that say “We hate Christmas,” and “Go away Santa.”

While he’s in the house, find the sleigh and sit in it. As soon as he comes back and sees you, tell him that he shouldn’t have missed that last payment, and take off.

Leave a plate filled with cookies and a glass of milk out, with a note that says, “For The Tooth Fairy. :)”

Leave another plate out with half a stale cookie and a few drops of skim milk in a dirty glass with a note that says, “For Santa.”

Take everything out of your house as if it’s just been robbed. When Santa arrives, show up dressed like a policeman and say, “Well, well. They always return to the scene of the crime.”

Leave out a Santa suit, with a dry-cleaning bill.

McDonald’s Student of the Week

One local student in the Edson and Hinton region is spotlighted each week.

A student will be recognized for exemplary performance, behavior, academic and athletic accomplishments.

The “McDonald’s Student of the Week” will be featured on the Fox each weekday morning at 7:50 on The Breakfast Club with Patti Shea and Steve Bethge. The selected student will receive a certificate outlining their accomplishments in addition to 2 individual ‘extra value meals’ from McDonald’s in Edson or Hinton.

There is NO cost to the school or student to participate in this program.  It is purely intended to recognize those students that have gone above and beyond in their scholastic and personal life.

We don’t think doing radio is a game, but we still like to have fun. That’s why we play slots games in our spare time.

Fax in a ‘McDonald’s Student of the Week’ nomination form with your chosen student. All area schools have been provided with nomination forms.

The more information about the student you give as to why you’re nominating them, the better.

If you have any questions, comments or concerns please feel free to contact us.
