For the 35th year, kids in areas surrounding Shepherdsville, Kentucky, are being visited by Santa traveling in a fire truck transformed by Christmas lights and decorations.Known locally as the “Santa Truck”, the vehicle was three weeks in the making at Zoneton Fire Protection District, and was unveiled on December 1.“We take our truck and turn it into Santa’s sleigh and we go out through the district and put smiles on people’s faces,” said Fire Captain Steven Corbin, as reported by WHAS11.Drone footage by Doug Cohron shows the first glimpse of the finished truck.“The first things were to remove a compartment door, empty the water tank, remove the hose and ladders along with other equipment,” Cohron told Storyful. “Then the time-consuming part – all the lights, electrical and data cables, sound system, lights to illuminate Santa and the elves, figures and most importantly Rudolph with his nose so bright.”The truck made its first stop on December 2 at the grave of Fire Chief Rob Orkies, who died from COVID-19, WDRB reported.

Day four of Ghislaine Maxwell’s sex-trafficking trial took place in New York City on Thursday, December 2, with Maxwell facing charges of conspiring with Jeffery Epstein to facilitate the grooming and sexual abuse of minors.The fourth day of the trial focused on the grooming of victims – the center of the sex-trafficking charges against Maxwell – the New York Times reported. Variations of the word “grooming” appeared nine times in her federal indictment, according to the New York Times.On Thursday, expert witness Dr Lisa Rocchio told jurors that “childhood sexual abuse is a process” that begins with the selection of the victim and escalates through trust-building and desensitization.Prosecutors have accused Maxwell of initiating the grooming process by introducing young girls to Epstein, posing as a mentor figure, and allegedly giving the girls explicit sexual advice.Videos taken outside the Southern District of New York Courthouse show Teresa Helm, an alleged victim of Maxwell and Epstein, and lawyers arriving to the trial on Thursday morning.
