    The TV star went on to make movies and co-found the popular website FunnyorDie.com in a career that won the 44-year-old the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor from the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
    It was the Bush impression, though, that might have made the Washington crowd laugh — and cringe — the hardest Sunday.

  • Treat yourself to arts and crafts

    This weekend, while the kids recover from collecting sugary sweets at Trick or Treat on MainStreet, adults can treat themselves to fat-free arts and crafts at the 34th annual Fuller Lodge Art Center “Gateway to the Holidays” arts and crafts fair.
    The Parish Hall at the Immaculate Heart of Mary Church will be filled with artists and their work, from jewelry and potholders to angels and Santas. The fair offers just enough for a wide spectrum of choices, without the confusion of too much to digest in one visit.
    Art lovers can pick up a handmade basket from retired Los Alamos High School teacher Ronnie Moss and continue through the hall to fill it with gifts for everyone they know, as well as things for their own homes.
