RICHMOND, Calif. (AP) -- The nation's oldest U.S. park ranger will help light the National Christmas Tree outside the White House. Betty Soskin is a 94-year-old San Francisco Bay area ranger. She works as an interpretive ranger at the Rosie the Riveter World War II Home Front National Historic Park in Richmond, California. She tells KGO-TV she was absolutely stunned by the invitation from the White House. She will also introduce President Barack Obama at the tree-lighting ceremony next week. Soskin made headlines two years ago when she complained about the government furlough, saying at her age she didn't have time to waste sitting at home.


MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) -- Police charge a driving lesson turned into a lesson about road rage. According to authorities in Manchester, New Hampshire, a man with a gun threatened a driver's ed instructor and her three students. One of the students was practicing parking. Police say the man knocked on the window and threatened to shoot them if they hit his car. Instructor Marie Ramsdell says she saw a black and silver handgun on the man's hip. Police later arrested 22-year-old Joseph Duven. He's now charged with four counts of criminal threatening.


BISBEE, Ariz. (AP) -- Is it porn or art? Arizona art gallery owners Meggen Connolley and Eric Meyer have now decided to close rather than fight. They say their landlord objected to nude photos and paintings that were on display. They tell the Sierra Vista Herald they don't want their selections censored. So, the Windows Gallery in Bisbee is closing just six months after it opened.


SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- It's a Black Friday deal Californians can't refuse -- free passes to state parks and a chance to walk off all that turkey, stuffing and pie. KNTV reports 31 of the state's 49 parks are already out of the freebies. As of yesterday, nearly 5,000 people had downloaded the passes. The nonprofit Save the Redwoods says their offer was made possible by an anonymous $50,000 donation.
