    Lauryn Hill: Rohan Marley not father of sixth child

    NEW YORK — After the birth of her sixth child, Lauryn Hill wants to clear up two things: Rohan Marley didn’t abandon her while she was pregnant, and he’s not the baby’s father.
    The blogosphere has been abuzz after word came last week that the reclusive Grammy winner had a baby boy. Marley, the father of her five other children, sent a message on Twitter “forwarding all well wishes to Ms. Hill on the birth of her new son.” That tweet, along with pictures showing him in an embrace with another woman, created speculation.

  • A New Mexico emu roundup

    Sid Hausman, author of “One Bullfrog” and “Cactus Critter Bash,” will sign “Emus and Owlhoots,” his new book filled with the music of the Old West, at Otowi Station Bookstore from 10 a.m.-noon Aug. 29. This event for all ages will also feature songs from the book.
    “Emus and Owlhoots” features Handlebar Slim and his sidekick Washtub as radio cowboys, who bring those “thrilling days of yesteryear” to life again.
    The book is a wacky, whimsical tale that revives the memory of a time when good guys chased the bad guys across the prairies of kids’ imaginations, and of course the good guys always came out on top.

  • 'The Last Savage' is a beast of a comedy

    Spectacular sets, spectacular costumes, spectacular singing! “The Last Savage” at the Santa Fe Opera has truly been my favorite production this season. “The Last Savage” is sung in English, which struck me as unusual for opera, and refreshingly resembles a broadway musical. Best of all, “The Last Savage” is a comedy, full of hilarious moments that result in numerous belly laughs.

  • Missoula Children’s Theatre presents: The Princess and the Pea

    Once again, Missoula Children’s Theatre has come to Los Alamos to work with 58 youth to bring Los Alamos “The Princess and the Pea.”
    Envision a kingdom of snow where the residents are winter wind workers, blizzard bringers, icicle sharpeners and snow smoothers, ruled by the Storm King and the Snow Queen. Add to that a prince looking for a proper princess to share the throne. Now imagine the princess and her friend the pea, living in a kingdom of green rolling hills and running rivers with her subjects, the flower gardeners, river runners, green shoot growers and tree barkers. Her parents, King Size and Queen Size, do all they can to keep things running smoothly.  

  • Show more respect

    Natural gas doesn’t get enough respect.
    Two reports – one on last winter’s outage and another on the future of natural gas – make that clear.
    This month independent investigator Michael Johnson verified that February’s natural gas outage, which left 28,707 customers without heat during an arctic blast, unfolded the way New Mexico Gas Company said it did.  Fancy that.
    The company said at the time that freeze-outs in the Permian and San Juan natural gas basins, combined with rolling blackouts in Texas, kept producers and processing plants from delivering gas into pipelines and allowed pressure in the system to fall.
