100 YEARS AGO: Santa Claus makes a hospital run to spread Christmas cheer to the nurses and attending physicians at the Modesto Sanitarium. The staff and their families made merry while gathered around an old-fashioned Christmas tree as Santa handed out gifts.

Modesto Bee is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
