  • ‘King Roger’ is worth the time

    The Santa Fe Opera’s most modern sounding offering this season is Polish composer Szymanowski’s “King Roger.”

  • LANL protesters plead not guilty -- updated

    “The LANL Six,” the six anti-nuclear demonstrators that were arrested outside the Los Alamos Laboratory Monday, got their day in court Thursday and they couldn’t be happier.

    For Aug. 9, 1945 was the day the U.S. dropped the second atomic bomb on Nagasaki, allowing the demonstrators to wave their signs on Trinity Avenue once again before heading to municipal court to get the charges read to them. The six include Pamela Gilchrist, Benjamin Abbott, Barbara Grothus, Catherine Euler, Cathie Sullivan and Janet Greenwald.
