Santa surprises Hawkins commissioners with candy instead of coal

ROGERSVILLE — Santa Claus made a surprise visit to the Hawkins County Courthouse Monday evening shortly before the beginning of the County Commission meeting where he distributed candy canes to all the good little elected officials and others in attendance.

If Santa handed coal out to any commissioners, it was done discreetly, behind closed doors, and out of the pubic eye. 

The only commissioner in attendance Monday who arrived after Santa had departed and missed his chance for some candy was Bob Edens.

Edens told the Times News he somehow always manages to arrive shortly after Santa has departed.
