    But James, who lives on Bondville Road, says he loves to “go all out” for Christmas.
    And he wants others to enjoy the free lights, er, fruits of his labor.

    We live in a town that is surrounded by rolling hills, filled with green pastures, and influenced by agriculture.

    A piece of padding stuffed inside his plush red Santa Claus suit, Reaves’ belly was nowhere to be found in his “dressing room,” a row of his costumes hanging from an exposed pipe off the side stage of the Grand Theatre in Frankfort.

    Not intentionally, Reaves laughed.
