Rasputina, a Brooklyn, N.Y.-based chamber-rock trio that fuses classical instruments with rock music, will rock The Ottobar on Wednesday night. "It's easier to think of what isn't unique about Rasputina. We're a group of musicians that perform and record," says founder Melora Creager. She says the power trio's music, appearance and ideas are what's unique. The group, which consists of two cellists and a drummer, has been touring since early July to promote its new CD, Oh, Perilous World, which came out in June.

Peter Creager III, owner of Atlantic Nationwide Trucking Inc. in Canton, is not about to let his company or his 25 drivers -- independent operators who pay for their fuel -- take a hit because of high diesel prices. When costs rise, he passes it on to his customers. "If I didn't react, [the drivers] would constantly eat that," he said. "The only way of them getting an increase is through me." Three-fourths of his business comes from domestic transport, taking goods such as paper products or machinery from a manufacturer to a distribution center or retailer.

For 40 days last year, Linda Creager prepared dinner and sat down with her two sons at the table, but ate nothing.For 40 consecutive days she fasted, swallowing nothing but liquids. Creager says she was not on a diet, but on a religious mission, to find guidance from God."After four or five days, I didn't even want food," said Creager, a church outreach worker in Birmingham, Ala. "I could really see how great it's going to be when we don't have to eat anymore, when we get to heaven."Thousands of evangelical Christians, hopeful that the nation is on the threshold of a huge spiritual revival, have taken to preparing by fasting and praying, on their own and in large groups.
