Children aren’t the only ones who enjoy a visit from Santa. So do local seniors, many of whom are kids at heart; and they sure got a treat at all nine of The Waters' senior living communities in Minnesota this month.
"Paleo Santa” spread a little holiday cheer at each of the communties on Dec. 17 and 18, handing out mini candy canes and wishing residents well. Never heard of Paleo Santa before? She is Tami Kozikowski, the President and Chief Operating Officer for The Waters, a Minnetonka-based owner and operator of senior living communities in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania. They call her Paleo-Santa because she is a very skinny Santa by most people’s Santa standards.
Kozikowski has been playing Santa at work since about 2008 when she borrowed her husband’s Santa suit for the first time. This is her second year in a leadership role at The Waters, and thus the second year that Paleo Santa has been making appearances at all nine of The Waters’ Minnesota communities.
As for her motivation for playing Santa every year, "It is a little selfish. My job is an office job, but when I need energy, I get out and visit a community,” Paleo Santa said. "At this time of year, it is also to say hi to team members and wish our residents and our team members a wonderful holiday season.”

Minnetonka grandmother and psychotherapist Lisa Venable launched her new audio story series, The Magical Adventures of Mr. Green Pony, on Sun., Dec. 8 at the Hopkins Center for the Arts in Hopkins, Minn. The event was previewed in the Dec. 5 issue of the MN Sun Sailor newspaper. The paper also published a story about the event in the Dec. 12 issue of the paper.
Venable created the new audio story series in response to her concerns about exposing young children to screens. Venable warns that overuse of screens is causing the child more harm than good. “Young children who spend a lot time on screens aren’t using their imaginations or exploring their environments, both critical for the growing brain. And, they are learning to use screens as a distraction or way to self-soothe,” she says, “something that later on often leads to addiction and an inability to deal with emotions in a healthy way.”
There are currently ten audio stories & activities available both digitally and on CD in the Mr. Green Pony audio story series, which encourages imagination, promotes listening and memory skills, and provides screen-free active learning opportunities for young children.
