  • Ricky Grigsby expects gas prices to hit $4 per gallon by this summer. He said he has no other choice but to sell his truck and get a smaller, more fuel-efficient vehicle.

    Grigsby said, other than driving to work, he tries to drive as little as possible - the price at the pump is just too much.

    "We don't travel as much as we used to," he said. "And I don't know what this will mean for summer vacation plans."

  • An estimated 1,450 people were served at this year's Christmas at Claudia's at Claudia Sanders Dinner House Sunday. Low-income families were invited to the event to receive a free meal and toys.

    Event organizers said the event cost from $25,000 to $30,000 to put on. Numerous local businesses, organizations and individuals volunteered and donated time and money to make the event happen.

  • Through a process of meticulous carving, etching, and hammering, Dr. Steve Halla has learned to create near photograph quality designs with a piece of wood and ink. For Halla, the craft is more than just creating a work of art - it is a prayer, carved in wood.

    Halla, who has been working with woodcuts for eight years, said that he can spend up to 25 hours at his dining room table in Mt. Eden, etching and creating a single woodcut design. He said that his desire to create the designs is an extension of his Christian faith.
