A change of shift for Santa. Julianne Shoopman is flanked by Terry Bell on the left and Geoff Ladd on the right yesterday afternoon at the Lincoln IGA. The trio, along with WLCN's Jim Ash and Jeff Maxwell, are at the hometown grocer to collect food for the Lincoln/Logan County Food Pantry. Of course, the real Santa is busy at the North Pole checking his list.


The gang will be there again today (Saturday) from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., so stop on over and help a great local cause. Bags of groceries have already been filled, making donating a breeze. Plus, you can win great gifts just for helping.
