Even Santa’s helpers need assistance when traveling through the Oil Patch. Chris Hammond, who is filling in for Kris Kringle at Prairie Hills Mall this year, showed up on a flatbed oil truck and was greeted by about 75 children and parents Saturday. Hammond, who works in the oil field when he’s not helping out Santa, will dress up as Oil Field Santa on Dec. 3 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. For a full schedule of Hammond-as-Santa appearances at the mall, visit the calendar at www.thedickin
