  • Cedric Burnside Project, Nomads will highlight LA’s ChamberFest weekend

    Last September at the Blue Window Bistro there was a fundraiser concert starring Cedric Burnside, who put on an outstanding show which the crowd seemed to dig.
    Friday night, Central Avenue will be closed and Burnside and his new band, the Cedric Burnside Project, will perform again.
    Burnside is the grandson of the iconic Mississippi bluesman, R.L. Burnside. Cedric played with R.L. on the porch, on records and on the road since he was a child.
    He was a winner of the Blues Music Awards’ “Best New Artist Debut” for the record “Two Man Wrecking Crew” in 2009. Two Man Wrecking Crew was the duo that performed at the Blue Window in 2010.
    In 2009 and 2010, Burnside won awards for “Best Blues Drummer.”

  • Fishing report 06-09-11

    Northwest

    Animas River: The flow is 4,920 cfs. Fishing is slow and the river is muddy and flowing fast with runoff. The river was stocked with 175 triploid rainbow trout last week.
    Chama River: Upper section flow is 1,120 cfs. The river below El Vado flows at 1,150 cfs. The upper Chama including the stretch flowing into El Vado is blown out. Flows are near normal and the river is in runoff. Wading is dangerous at these higher flows, so use common sense when fishing. Crane fly larva and egg patterns and a trailing flashy baetis were reported to be the hot flies. Also worms and Panther Martins are taking fish. The stretch below Abiquiu is fishing tough. High dam release has made wading tough. Flows below dam are at 1,200.

  • Hockey: Bruins rout Canucks, even series

    BOSTON (AP) — The tattered, kitschy Bruins jacket has been moving around the Boston locker room for the past few months, going to the most valuable player in every victory.
    It belonged to Nathan Horton when he went down with a serious concussion two days earlier in the Stanley Cup finals. He showed up in the Bruins’ locker room Wednesday night, delighting his teammates by putting the jacket on Rich Peverley.
    That strange, old jacket bought on eBay has become the Bruins’ most valuable trophy.
    After two dominant games in Boston, the Bruins are halfway to winning a bigger, shinier prize.

  • Veterinarians warn of pet health issues from smoke

    SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — The New Mexico Veterinary Medical Association recommends that people keep their pets inside and close windows and doors as much as possible to limit exposure to smoke from wildfires.

    The group issued a statement Wednesday about potential health problems for animals because of smoke from a large wildfire in eastern Arizona.

    The association recommended restricting exercise for pets and said plenty of water should be provided for animals to ensure they keep their airways moist.
