DERBY WINNER. Clearview sixth-grader Christopher Benson built one final Pine Box Derby car, even though he is now too old to compete himself. He crafted this "Crayola(r) Special" in honor of art teacher Kathy Gerdts-Senger, and the Crayola company, which provides art supplies to primary schools. "I knew she'd like it," he said, when asked how he got the idea to build it.
