  • Golden Dragon Acrobats return to LA

    China’s Golden Dragon Acrobats return to the Duane Smith Auditorium as a fundraiser for the 2013 Gordons’ Summer Concert Series at 7:30 p.m. Saturday. 

    The discovery of acrobatics goes back at least 4,000 years in China. During the Han Dynasty (221BC-220AD), it was known as the “hundred plays.” 

    It has transformed into various forms of ancient performance art: dance, opera, martial arts, contortion, balancing and sports. It’s a treasure of traditional Chinese art.

    The Golden Dragon Acrobats represent this time-honored tradition. This production company has won many awards since first being established in 1967.

    The show features acrobatics, traditional dance, music, contortionists and jugglers.

  • Fingerprint angle falls short in burglary

     

     

    For all their efforts to rob the Hill Diner last month, the burglars only got away with less than $10. However, to Hill Diner owner Denise Lane, it was the principle of the thing that mattered. Not only did the burglars destroy a perfectly good cash register to get to the cash, but they also took the owner’s sense of security. 

    Recently, police revealed that though they took what fingerprints they could from the scene, none of them panned out. According to Los Alamos Police Department Capt. Randy Foster, the lab they were sent to could not get a good scan, so it’s back to the drawing board. 

    “We are still continuing to follow up on the case,” Foster said. “We are going to talk to all the original people we talked to before and see what we come up with.”
