  • Zsa Zsa Gabor taken
    to hospital by ambulance

    LOS ANGELES — Zsa Zsa Gabor was rushed to a hospital Wednesday in an ambulance  when blood flow stopped to her leg, a publicist said.
    Doctors ordered the ailing 94-year-old actress to go to UCLA Medical Center because of the problem with her left leg, publicist John Blanchette said.
    Most of Gabor’s right leg was amputated in January because of gangrene.

  • WASHINGTON — Turns out it really does take a rocket scientist to beat Watson, the “Jeopardy”-winning computer.
    U.S. Rep. Rush Holt of New Jersey — a five-time champion during the trivia show’s original run 35 years ago — topped the IBM computer Monday night in a “Jeopardy”-style match of congressmen vs. machine held at a Washington hotel.

  • Opera Alta and the Unitarian Church of Los Alamos present a condensed concert version of Gilbert and Sullivan’s “H.M.S. Pinafore,” or “The Lass that Loved a Sailor,” at 7 p.m. Friday and 2 p.m. Saturday at the Unitarian Church, 1738 N. Sage St.  
    Enjoy a tongue-in-cheek look at authority based solely on class distinctions and romance that refuses such confinement, all in the world’s perkiest and wordiest music ever written.     

  • Otowi Station, an official sponsor the 2011 Empty Bowls event, began selling tickets and bowls on Feb. 27. Patrons can choose a bowl from an assortment of locally sculpted and painted ceramic bowls to add to their home collections, or choose from one of hundreds of bowls at the event.
    Self Help, Inc., will host this year’s Empty Bowls event from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. March 12 at the Betty Erhart Senior Center. In addition to a luncheon featuring homemade soup, bread and dessert, the event will also include a silent auction and live music.

  • Sometimes deciding what to eat for dinner can be harder than trying to solve a calculus problem, especially when you’re in the mood for something different.
    Luckily, Jo-Ji’s Sushi and Teppan Grill located at 1508B N. Riverside Drive in Española can help anyone out of their culinary doldrums.
    Located in a strip mall, between a cell phone store and a defunct pizza buffet joint, the restaurant isn’t much to look at from the outside, but once inside, the atmosphere changes.

  • Teatro Paraguas will present “Jim Sagel, poeta nuevomexicano,” a tribute to the poet, writer, instructor and long-time Española resident at 7 p.m. Friday in the the Univeristy of New Mexico-Los Alamos Lecture Hall (Bldg. 2). The event is free and open to everyone.
    Sagel was an instructor at UNM-LA for a number of years. He was director of the Division of Humanities at UNM- LA, a post he held until his untimely death (by suicide) in 1998.

  • Moonlight and magnolias is a phrase used to describe the beauty, serenity and romanticism of the South before the Civil War, as experienced by the landed gentry. The popular film “Gone with the Wind” exemplifies this feeling. The South’s wealthy landowners lost everything they held near and dear in the Civil War, and so moonlight and magnolias was forevermore tarnished. Today, films like “Gone with the Wind” have the ability to temporarily, but perfectly, restore this long-lost feeling to a fortunate audience.

  • Today
    The March meeting of the Los Alamos Master Gardeners will be at 7 p.m. in the White Rock Town Hall.

    Friday
    Teatro Paraguas will present Jim Sagel, poeta Nuevo Mexicano, a tribute to the poet, writer, instructor, and long-time Española resident at 7 p.m. in the UNM-Los Alamos Lecture Hall (Bldg. 2). The event is free of charge and open to everyone.
