  • What started out as a joke on Leap Year four years ago, is becoming a reality for a group of Northern New Mexican artists.  
    In 2008, Española artist Nikki Bustos did a show at the Bond House Museum in Española. At that time, she made a deal with the person who used to run the museum. She jokingly agreed to do another show on the next Leap Year, not really expecting it to happen. As luck would have it, she was placed on the calendar. She had forgotten about it until she got a reminder about her March 2012 show.

  • Actor and musician Davy Jones died Wednesday of a heart attack in Florida. Best known as a teen idol from the band and TV show The Monkees in the 1960's, Jones also appeared on various British and American TV shows throughout the years.

  • Those who have never been to a dinner theatre will get the chance from 5-8 p.m. Saturday at Trinity on the Hill Episcopal Church.
    The dinner will be buffet-style, complete with wine and dessert, and will form an integral part with the play. Silent and live auctions will also be offered.
    According to the play’s authors, Jeff and Kandice Favorite, “The script is a parody of “The Love Boat.”  We started with a few lines that we found online and we greatly expanded it and made it local and personal.  It has been great fun to write and rehearse.  People are so funny.  We can’t wait to perform this for real.”
