On this day... Dec. 11, 1989

Face to face with Santa — Photo on left: A long list of Christmas wishes was rattled off by Brittany VanGelder, 3, of Sonora when she ran into Santa Claus recently at the Junction Shopping Center. She promised to leave milk and cookies out for Santa as a late night snack on Christmas Eve. Photo on right: Pensive at first, Sean Andrew White, of Sonora eventually decided Santa Claus was a good guy. Sean, the son of Darrell and Erin White, ran into the white-bearded gentleman during a shopping excursion on Sonora.
