  • Stars of ‘Real Housewives’ sentenced to prison for fraud

    NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — The married stars of the “Real Housewives of New Jersey” are trading the drama of reality TV for prison.
    Teresa Giudice was sentenced Oct. 2 in U.S. District Court to 15 months in prison on conspiracy and bankruptcy fraud charges while her husband, Giuseppe “Joe” Giudice, was sentenced to 41 months by a judge who castigated them for failing to disclose all their assets yet gave both a measure of leniency.
    In a nod to the couple’s four young daughters, Judge Esther Salas staggered the sentences so that Teresa Giudice will serve her sentence first. Teresa Giudice is scheduled to report to prison in early January.
    Teresa Giudice, 42, cried as she apologized in court before her sentencing.
    “I fully take responsibility for my actions. I need to learn to take responsibility for myself,” she said. “I can’t even explain the pain that I have gone through. I am more sorry than anybody will ever know or understand.”
    Joe Giudice also apologized and said he had disgraced many people. He faces an immigration hearing when he completes his sentence and likely will be deported. His attorney has said Giudice came to the U.S. as an infant and didn’t know he wasn’t an American citizen until he was an adult.

  • Radiation, homesteading, bombs discussed in ‘Manhattan’ episode 9

    With only four episodes to go, there was another great turnout for the Los Alamos Historical Society’s viewing of episode 9 of WGN’s series, Manhattan, a fictionalized look at life in Los Alamos during the Manhattan Project.
    A special thanks to the members of the Los Alamos High School Class of 1964 who came to watch the show.
    Every week, the Society updates a bulletin board in the museum to continue exploring questions and reactions as the 13-episode series continues.
    Previous episodes are discussed on losalamoshistory.org, the Historical Society’s Facebook page and in the museum.
    Join the Los Alamos Historical Society Sundays at Time Out Pizzeria in Los Alamos from 8–9:30 p.m. for a viewing and discussion of Manhattan (TV-14 rating).
    Episode 9: “Spooky Action at a Distance”
    Did any scientists work off-site?
    Emilio Segrè worked off-site during the Manhattan Project. Segrè was in charge of the Radioactivity Group (P-5). His group was set up in the Pajarito Canyon near Los Alamos in an unused Forest Service cabin. His group’s job was to measure and catalog the radioactivity of various fission products; they also measured the gamma radiation from the Trinity test.
    Did B-29s drop bombs here?

  • Santa Fe Symphony celebrates 'Fall Gold'

    As the aspens of northern New Mexico put their autumnal colors on display, The Santa Fe Symphony presents a program of burnished favorites featuring guest conductor Oriol Sans. The program includes Joaquín Rodrigo’s Concierto de Aranguez, featuring renowned classical guitarist Jason Vieaux, alongside the Overture to William Tell by Gioachino Rossini, Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 4 and Arturo  Márquez’ Danzón No. 2, a Mexican contemporary classical music composition performed by orchestras. The concert is seasonably named Fall Gold.
    Tickets are on sale now for the show, which begins 4 p.m. Oct. 19 at the Lensic Performing Arts Center in Santa Fe.
    Catalan conductor Oriol Sans has performed with orchestras in America and Europe, and studied with some of the most acclaimed contemporary maestros and musicians.
    His most recent engagements include guest conducting the San Juan Symphony in Durango, Colorado, the Orquesta Filarmónica de Jalisco in Guadalajara Mexico, the Santa Fe Symphony, the New Mexico Philharmonic, and the Festival des orchestres de jeunes du Québec.

  • Escape the devil with 'Odyssey' retelling for free film series

    Always wondered what the devil looks like? What fraction of a roasted gopher would be required to completely bed down a man’s appetite? Look no further than your local public library, where  “O, Brother, Where Art Thou?” (2000, PG-13) will be shown at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, in the upstairs meeting-room “theater.”
    Joel and Ethan Coen’s take on Homer’s “Odyssey” reimagines the classic tale as it might have occurred in 1930s Mississippi. Ulysses Everett McGill (George Clooney), Pete Hogwallop (John Turturro), and Delmar O’Donnell (Tim Blake Nelson) escape from a chain gang to begin a quest for treasure.
    Along their way, they receive counsel from a blind prophet who tells them they will see a cow “on the roof of a cotton house.” They happen upon a picturesque baptism in a scene that might allude to the Lotus Eaters in “Odyssey,” a group that invites travelers to eat lotus leaves that cause them to forget just about everything. They meet a one-eyed Bible bully, a trio of river vixens, a baby-faced bank robber, and a man who sold his soul to the devil because, as he says, “I wasn’t usin’ it.” They sing into a can. They eat rodents. They eat horse. They go through a lot of hair jelly.

  • SFUAD celebrates theater namesake

    Santa Fe University of Art and Design and Pecos National Historical Park will jointly host the Greer Garson 110th Birthday Tribute this weekend. The Academy-Award winning actress’ birthday was Sept. 29.
    The festivities will honor Garson’s local philanthropic contributions, including a free public reception in the lobby of the Greer Garson Theatre, 6 p.m. Friday on the SFUAD campus.
    The reception will feature a display of costumes the actress wore, a dance tribute by SFUAD students, an onstage tour of Greer Garson Theatre, scene rehearsal of the upcoming SFUAD production, “The Cave Dwellers,” and “Remembering Greer” Panel and Q&A with special guests including former SFUAD Performing Arts Chair John Weckesser.
    “Greer Garson was a woman of extraordinary intelligence and talent, a star in the galaxy sense of the word, who genuinely cared about people,” Weckesser said. “She wanted people to succeed in life on any and every level, students foremost. It is the generosity of her spirit which overrides her monetary contributions to the campus that will live with me, our faculty and our students forever.”

  • Story of Sacajawea to be filmed mainly in New Mexico

    ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — ABQ Global Entertainment, LLC, a film production company based in Nob Hill and owned by Lainie S. Quirk and Ivan Wiener, joins the Windcatcher Entertainment production team of screenwriter and producer, Jane L. Fitzpatrick and Native American adviser and producer, Chief Whispering Raven.
    Quirk and Wiener, co-founders and co-executive producers of the Albuquerque Film & Music Experience (AFME) bring their New Mexico resources in the film and business communities to Windcatcher.
    “Windcatcher: The Story of Sacajawea,” will focus on the most famous, but least known Native American woman in history.
    The Lewis and Clark expedition was a treacherous journey across the land to the Pacific Ocean and back in 1804-06. Sacajawea was a significant member of this Corps of Discovery. Her ability to secure horses for the mountainous trek and her knowledge of the land brought them success, which they may not have otherwise achieved.
    The production team is currently working with investors to finalize funding and go into pre-production.

  • National 'Aurora Project' reaches out to youth

    Electric violinist Tracy Silverman and story dancer Zuleikha are joining forces to kick-off the national performance tour “Aurora” and outreach series for youth.
    The show will be 7:30 p.m. Sept. 27 at Warehouse 21 in Santa Fe. The duo weaves improvisational music, story, dance and humor in the atmosphere of Warehouse 21’s Blackbox theater.
    The film created at this event will be used to gather sponsorships for the “Aurora Project,” which will give youth in disadvantaged circumstances around the country an opportunity to participate in creative workshops with Zuleikha and Silverman on the joy and art of improvisation.
    Formerly first violinist with the innovative Turtle Island String Quartet, Silverman was named one of 100 distinguished alumni by The Juilliard School.
    Shortly after graduating in 1980, Silverman built one of the first-ever, six-string violins and set his own course as a musical pioneer.
