Washington D.C... this is no way to treat Santa Claus. Now for all you kids, this wasn't the real Santa- this was just a nice man dressed up as Santa participating in a toy giveaway, when he was shot in the shoulder by a pellet gun while being interviewed by a reporter. You can see him doubling over in pain. He was taken to a nearby hospital but should be okay. The giveaway continued with another Santa wearing a Grinch mask...

Virginia... one woman has an innovative idea that she says can get businesses rolling. She's making her wheelchair profitable by making it available for advertising. Calling it 'Ads on a Roll,' the costs range from 300 to 750 dollars for a month of service. So far, she's gotten a pretty good response, and says she hopes her story can create opportunities for other people with disabilities...

Alaska... the seventh annual Christmas in Ice Carving Exhibit is underway. All kinds of different categories here and since we are so far north, there is zero chance of anything melting during the festivities. The event runs through January 7th, next to the Santa Claus house in the town aptly called North Pole. And with that, it's time to chill on this USA Update.
