A visit from Santa

Tuesday, December 20, 2011
A 5-year-old Fort Scott resident enjoys a visit from Santa Monday evening at his home. Santa got help with the task of delivering toys to local families from Southeast Kansas Regional Correctional Center Director of Security Dylan Marlow, Sheila Nichols and Paul Nichols. Sheila's husband, the late Jimmy Nichols, organized a toy drive every year to help local children. She said she wanted to continue the drive through local donations and the use of her husband's memorial fund. She said she was able to raise more than $2,500 to help eight area families this Christmas, including two families in Fort Scott, one in Bronson, one in Uniontown and four in Iola.(Michael Pommier/Tribune)
