ART: The cave digger: Hewing art from the very landscape | Watch VideoThe golden sunlight of Northern New Mexico has inspired many artists, such as Georgia O'Keeffe, but Lee Cowan has the story of an artist who does his best work underground.

FASHION: Duct tape couture (Video)Duct tape was first introduced on the battlefields of World War II, as a waterproof tape for sealing ammunition cases. Today, it serves much more esoteric purposes, including some crafty fashions.

BUSINESS: A skateboard company that builds more than boards | Watch VideoSome of the best skateboards are made right in Music City. At Salemtown Board Company, 27-year-old Will Anderson can turn a slab of middle Tennessee oak into a world-class sidewalk cruiser. But this is not what he planned to do with his life.

Anderson (who studied to be a social worker) and his friend Jason Henley started the company two years ago as a way to teach neighborhood kids about discipline and dedication -- the tools that will help them climb higher later in life.

It's not so much about shaping boards, he tells Tracy Smith, as about shaping lives.
