  • Ex-boxer Mike Tyson to take a bite out of Broadway

    NEW YORK (AP) — Mike Tyson wants his next knockout to be on Broadway.
    The former boxer announced Monday that he will team up with director Spike Lee to bring his one-man show, “Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth,” to the Longacre Theatre for six nights only, July 31 to Aug. 5.
    The show, a raw confessional on the highs and lows of the life of the retired heavyweight and tabloid target, will mark both Tyson’s and Lee’s debut on Broadway. It made its debut in April for a weeklong run at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

  • 'Oral histories from the Embudo Valley'

    In 2003, local author Harvey Frauenglass conducted interviews with 14 elders of the Dixon/Embudo area. These interviews are now published in “Voices of Dixon: Oral Histories from the Embudo Valley.”
    At 2:30 p.m. Sunday at the Mission in Dixon, the elders interviewed will be honored. There will be readings from the interviews and a reading from New Mexico’s Centennial Poet Levi Romero.
    The presentation will also show and explain the Embudo Valley Library’s new Special Collections website and archives, which presently features Harvey’s interviews and Charlotte Valdez’ History of the Embudo Presbyterian Mission.
    Valdez has gathered an extensive collection of historical documents and photographs from over the years.  

  • Alien fighter Noah Wyle back in ‘Falling Skies’

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Noah Wyle is confronting an alien invasion, the death of his wife and the potential annihilation of the human species in “Falling Skies.”
    But he had to face a more personal issue in tackling the role of history professor Tom Mason in TNT’s sci-fi series, returned Sunday for season two: Wyle, 41, has become an elder statesman, relatively speaking.
    “I’m Anthony Edwards,” said Wyle, referring to the “ER” co-star who’s got eight years on him and boasted more credits when they started on the medical drama in 1994. “I’m the guy who’s been around a little longer and has a little more set savvy.”

  • Take time out for pizza

    Eating after 8 p.m. Friday has become a habit and somewhat of a necessity because of work schedules and summer concerts. Sure there’s food at the Los Alamos County Summer Concert Series, but sometimes the want for something different — and not out of a mobile cart — is strong. And sometimes pizza sounds good, but finding it after 8 p.m. can be virtually impossible.
    However, it’s not completely out of the question if you’re willing to drive just a few miles to White Rock.
    Time Out Pizzeria, located at 118 N.M. 4, between Rover and Sherwood Blvd.  is open until 9 p.m. Monday-Thursday and Sunday; and until 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
