Hard Times at North Pole?

Maybe things are tough all over. Santa spied at Lottery newsstand.

Hard Times at North Pole?

And just who is in Santa's lottery pool? Mr. Claus plays to win at the Gallery in Center City.

Two days late for Wednesday's massive Powerball, and perhaps a dollar short, Santa was spied at the Gallery Lottery newsstand Friday morning near his Center City workshop.

This was the same newsstand where a winning $172.7 million Powerball ticket was sold in April.

Maybe things really are tough all over, even the North Pole, and Santa could use some help.

Or perhaps that naughty list will just keep growing.
