Tracking Santa 

They’re broadcasting Santa’s journey through the county.

Each year, to get folks in the holiday spirit, Penobcot County dispatchers follow Saint Nick’s annual journey through the skies.

So keep your eyes and ears open Christmas Eve night and don’t be surprised if you spot something strange overhead.

If you don’t have a scanner the North American Aerospace Defense Command, or NORAD, is happily tasked with keeping children informed of Santa’s worldwide journey.

Last year, NORAD’s Santa tracking center answered 94-thousand calls and responded to 10-thousand e-mails. You can visit their website at
