An Ozark E-Zine

The men and women of NORAD, including a long list of volunteers, are proud to be a part of a 49-year-old tradition: Tracking Santa's worldwide journey on Christmas Eve and keeping the public informed of Santa's progress, so that good children everywhere know more about how Santa makes the rounds!!!

NOTE: I somewhat promised myself, when I posted the artwork (below), that I was going to abstain from posting "civic activism" stuff to Gozark's front page until after the first of the year. And I made this promise mainly because I needed a break and figured that the same might be true for you. Today, however, I received an email with news of (yet another) aggravating attack on our Constitutionally guaranteed liberties and I feel compelled to share this information far and wide. Thus, I have posted the referenced information here in the hopes that, especially now during this season when we all seem to take religiously for granted the freedoms we most enjoy, that we will all use this holiday season to refresh our energies, revitalize our enthusiasms, and prepare ourselves to greet the New Year with a firm resolve to "get involved."

Wishing all of us a life worth living, filled with all those things we prefer, desire, wholeheartedly celebrate and richly deserve to enjoy.
