All throughout Artesia last week, children still enjoying Christmas Break could be spotted taking their new toys out for a spin. From drones and kiddie cars to scooters and hoverboards, the sidewalks and residential streets were filled with enthusiastic youngsters. Lauren and Maisy Combs, meanwhile, daughters of Chris and Kimberly Combs of Artesia, added a little extra horsepower to their playtime.
