A check with Jolly Old St. Nick confirms he is planning to continue his tradition of bringing up the finale to the Kaysville Electric Light Parade. The 13th annual event will be held Monday, Nov. 29 at 6 p.m., with the annual Kaysville City Christmas Tree lighting ceremony to take place at city hall at 5:45 p.m. The parade will follow the same route as for the past many years. It will start just west of the Davis Applied Technology College next to Davis High’s athletic fields at about 500 S. Main, here. The parade will proceed north along Main Street to 100 North, where it will turn east and disband at 100 East, adjacent to the city block and Kaysville Elementary School. Santa will greet eager youngsters following the parade in the warmth of city hall. This year, the parade is joining forces with the TUMBLEBUS to benefit the Family Connection Center Food Bank and Sub for Santa. Canned food items and toiletries are especially needed this year, as more people than ever are seeking help from the Food Bank. In addition, Sub for Santa has seen a record number of requests, with new toys, gift cards for adolescents, gloves, mittens and scarves particularly needed. The TUMBLEBUS will be parked in the lot in front of city hall after the parade. n See “SANTA,” p. A8 See p.

Many people aren’t bashful at making their opinions known about the new so-called “full-body scans” being required at many airports. “I don’t like standing in one of those full-body screening machines,” said Richard Mann of Centerville. Mann travels at least twice a month, and given the option of a physical pat down or the body scan, he takes the scan. But he would prefer neither. “I feel very vulnerable when I’m standing there and these people are taking body X-rays,” Mann said.“I really don’t like it at all.” Mann is not alone in his feelings.
