Santa gets a helper with text notifications

DENVER (AP) - Santa is getting another helper this year with text messages that alert children and parents when he's ready to see them.

Broomfield's FlatIron Crossing is letting customers electronically reserve a place in line, allowing people to shop until their appointed time arrives.
