  • New Mexico House Rabbit Society’s latest campaign serves as a reminder that live rabbits aren’t a good idea for Easter baskets and invites reflection before impulsively acquiring one.
    Bus tails are in Santa Fe and Albuquerque depicting a rabbit next to a basket with the message “Think Beyond Easter!”
    While rabbits make great household pets, they are also the third-most surrendered animal to shelters, with many arriving in the post-Easter months.
    Bewildered and poorly-informed rabbit owners easily give up on the cute Easter Bunny they got from a feed store or pet shop when they realize just how much work this companion animal requires.
    Even worse, some well-meaning people simply let their bunnies go ‘free’ once taking care of them becomes too difficult. “Letting a domesticated rabbit loose in the wild is a sure death sentence,” said NMHRS President Bill Velasquez. “They aren’t like wild cottontails, but depend on their human caretaker for food. They’re eaten by the next predator that comes along.”

  • Love, betrayal and forgiveness reign as the New Mexico Dance Theater Performance Company presents “Giselle.”
    The ghostly love story will be performed 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday at the Duane W. Smith Auditorium.
    NMDT-PC has made a huge impact on the Los Alamos community.
    During its 14-year existence, NMDT-PC, directed by Susan Baker-Dillingham, has presented at least 19 original and/or classical ballets including “Dracula,” “Snow White,” “The Sleeping Beauty,” “Cinderella,” “The Wizard of Oz,” “Alice in Wonderland,” “Aladdin,” “A Christmas Carol,” “The Nutcracker” and several Mixed Bills.
    “Giselle,” first performed in 1841, is one of the most famous of the ballets blanc or white ballets. The term “ballet blanc” refers to scenes in which the ballerina and female members of the corps all dress in white.
    NMDT-PC’s production of “Giselle” will feature Sarah Dale as Giselle, Devon McCleskey as Albrecht, and Frank Macias as Hilarion. Company members Louisa Belian, Rebecca Cai, Akane Dunn, Naomi Joyce and Megan Hemphill will also stand out. Sets are by Holly Haas and costumes by Marcy Anderson.

  • Los Alamos Civil Air Patrol cadets participated in a ceremony honoring the contributions of New Mexico’s World War II Civil Air Patrol (CAP) members. The ceremony took place at the State Capitol in February.
    The ceremony was part of the Legislature’s annual Military Appreciation Day.
    Los Alamos Civil Air Patrol Cadets served as a color guard during the ceremony.
    Civil Air Patrol was awarded a Congressional Gold Medal in a Washington ceremony last December, as Congressional leaders presented the medal to CAP’s national commander and to 46 living CAP veterans of World War II. The honor recognizes CAP’s founding members’ role in protecting the American homeland and carrying out numerous wartime missions.
    The award had earlier been approved by both the House of Representatives and the Senate.
    Families of three of New Mexico’s World War II CAP members received bronze replicas of the gold medal at the Roundhouse ceremony. These replicas are identical to those presented to living veterans at the Washington ceremony. The wartime service of the late CAP members Robert S. Chamberlin, John F. Davis and James Taylor were recognized.
