The school bills itself as the longest continuously running Santa school in the world. But tuition costs more than cookies and a glass of milk. These Santas paid $425 for a three-day seminar. Santa's returning for a refresher pay 395 bucks. Doug Dodge -- A-K-A -- Santa Claus, from Burlington, Massachusetts, feels it's worth it. He says portraying Santa is an "awesome responsibility."

Retired police officer Tony Lepore (lih-POHR') will be dancing in the street and directing traffic in Providence for the holidays. Lepore started to bust a move while on traffic duty in 1984. At the time he was worried he might get into trouble. But Providence's dancing cop was a hit. Since his retirement, Lepore has been making school and TV appearances.
UO SNOWBALL FIGHT

A YouTube video shows OU players and other students pelting a car with dozens of snowballs. At one point, the driver is hit with a bucket of snow. Other players will be disciplined but not suspended.

CHOMPEY NEEDS A HOME
WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) -- Chompey, the baby gator, needs a new home. The little alligator was turned over to animal control officials in Waterloo, Iowa, after the owner learned they're illegal in the state. Waterloo city official Maria Tiller had the little gator in her office, until it started snapping. Tiller tells the Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier the little gator was "really kind of cute," but also "kind of naughty." The staff at a veterinary center named the alligator Chompey. Officials are now looking to place Chompey at a sanctuary in a warmer climate.
