Cars slowing down and people doing double takes are common at 63rd Avenue and Pierce Street in Fridley. Marvel McNaughton contacted a chain-saw artist to transform what was left of a maple tree in her yard after finding out the cost of removing it would be about the same. The result was a work of art honoring her American Indian heritage. The carving represents a mountain, with a stream carved into the middle flowing onto the rocks at the base, while an Eagle oversees an Indian princess, mama bear and cub.

What would you do if you saw a woman get pulled into a car? Would you follow the car? Would you just let it happen? What obligation do we have to help each other when the odds are against us? These questions surround the plot of an upcoming short film, 3 Bullets, which was shot at a Fridley warehouse last Saturday. The film, which has four actors, is about a pair of sports memorabilia collectors who have led very different lives and are in town to sell their memorabilia. After witnessing a woman get snagged into a car, the men, Joe and Tim (played by Clarence Werthen and Andrew Sass, respectively) decide to follow the car to a warehouse. Jamel Harris and Punnavith Koy play the film's thugs. “They have to decide to what degree they are …

Arts are her passion, she said—she was a theater and English major in college. “I wanted to be sure kids could have costumes if they were in a theater production, or scripts if they were in speech," Leibfried …
