  • Dennis Farina, star of 'Law & Order,' dead at 69

    NEW YORK (AP) — Dennis Farina, a onetime Chicago cop who as a popular character actor played a TV cop on "Law & Order" during his wide-ranging career, has died.

    Death came Monday morning in a Scottsdale, Ariz., hospital after Farina suffered a blood clot in his lung, according to his publicist, Lori De Waal. He was 69.

    For three decades, Farina was a character actor who displayed remarkable dexterity, charm and toughness, making effective use of his craggy face, husky frame, ivory smile and ample mustache. He could be as dapper as Fred Astaire and as full of threat as Clint Eastwood. His gift has been described as wry, tough-guy panache, and audiences loved him for it.

    "Sometimes you can take those dramatic roles and maybe interject a little humor into them, and I think the reverse also works," Farina said in a 2007 interview with The Associated Press. "One of the funny things in life to me is a guy who takes himself very seriously."

    Farina's many films include "Saving Private Ryan," (1998), "Out Of Sight" (1998), "Midnight Run" (1988), "Manhunter" (1986), and his breakout and perhaps most beloved film, "Get Shorty" (1995), a comedic romp where he played a Miami mob boss.

    Many members of the community who were unable to attend the March showing will get a chance on Thursday for a second viewing. The show will be 6:30 p.m. Thursday at UNM-LA’s Jeanette Wallace Lecture Hall.
    A follow up event is planned to discuss community changes for Los Alamos. “The whole purpose of the event was to get the engine started, now we’ll be able to get the wheels rolling,” Snyder said.

  • Mountain School kids act out unique version of 'Cinderella'

    Five classes of first and second grade students performed the musical “Disney’s Cinderella Kids,” last week in the Mountain School gym.
    Each student had a special role whether that was Cinderella, narrator, solo singer, a wheel of the carriage, or something else. There were six students that acted as Cinderella.
    There were about 100 guests that came to watch, including all the other grades and teachers. Families and teachers all worked together to help the students perform this “happily-ever-after” tale.
    The art teachers, Lorri McInroy and Stephanie Rittner, helped make props and backdrops, the parents and grandparents helped with costumes and hanging the backdrops.
    The teachers helped with logistics, memorizing lines and music.
    The students learned about working together, singing (pitch, high/low and fast/slow), what cue lines are, moving, acting, portraying emotions, using props, solo singing and staying focused.
    The students said they loved working on and performing ‘Disney’s Cinderella Kids!’ They were so excited and had a ton of fun.
