ALTAMONT — Mike Houghton has a small dental lab in a converted garage at his home in Sprakers, but at this time of year, the equipment for making gold and porcelain crowns gets crowded out by Santa gear. Houghton plays Santa at many area events, including the Altamont Victorian Holiday.
ALTAMONT — It all started from a phone call. A neighbor noticed that cars were coming and picking up packages that had been delivered to a house that was vacant and for sale. The neighbor called the Altamont Police.
