Governor orders airspace cleared for arrival of Santa’s sleigh

CARSON CITY — Gov. Brian Sandoval issued an executive order today allowing Santa Claus to talk on his cell phone while driving his sleigh and ordering the governor’s cabinet to assist in the delivery of packages to Nevada children.

The Nevada National Guard will clear the airspace over the state for a sleigh, eight reindeer and its driver, and the Department of Public Safety will ensure safe passage for "a plump figure dressed all in fur."

A supply of coal will be provided by the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, just in case. (Hear that, children?)
