Ol’ Saint Nick and his elves navigate a parking lot after the big fella’s medical exam Tuesday morning at Humana Guidance Center in Henderson. At the made-for-media event, Santa was found to be in generally good health and weighing a few pounds less than last year. Said the medical director of Humana: “I think everything is good, Santa. Maybe a few less cookies.” And Dr. Richard Jones’ instructions to good boys and girls? Turning to the TV cameras, he said, “Remember, carrot sticks and low-fat ranch dressing for Santa this year.”
