  • Honors pile up for Swift

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Ludacris made a surprise appearance, as did Sheryl Crow’s underwear. Lady Antebellum laid down a funky beat with Charles Kelley doing a Don Henley impression. And a sassy Wynonna Judd put Kid Rock in his place.
    Actress Kristin Chenoweth’s first CMT Music Awards left quite an impression Wednesday night.
    “This show is entertaining,” Chenoweth said. “I think the Oscars could learn something from it.”

  • New Fox movie doesn’t have ‘X’ factor

    LOS ANGELES — Young X-Men don’t have the same box-office superpowers as their older selves.
    “X-Men: First Class” had a solid No. 1 opening with a $56 million weekend, according to studio estimates Sunday.
    But the 20th Century Fox prequel chronicling the formative years of the comic-book mutants found smaller audiences than the franchise’s first four big-screen adventures, which featured older versions of the X-Men.
    Debut weekends for the last three “X-Men” flicks ranged from $85.1 million to $102.8 million. The original “X-Men” opened 11 years ago with $54.5 million, but that would amount to about $80 million today adjusting for ticket-price inflation.

  • Mountaineers to present Little's paddle along the Sea of Cortez

    The Los Alamos Mountaineers will host a presentation by Jackie Little as she describes her 65-mile paddle along the Sea of Cortez.
    Little’s presentation, “Paddling the Baja Desert Coast with Dick Opsahl,” is scheduled for 8 p.m. June 15 at Fuller Lodge. The presentation is free and open to the public.
    The trip, which was organized by Opsahl, a former Los Alamos resident, covered the distance of the coast from Loreto to La Paz.
    Opsahl invited Little and 12 more of his friends on the trek. The seven days on the water were filled with pre-dawn fishing, six-to-eight hours per day of paddling, snorkeling, beachcombing, fine dining and more.

  • Hidden History: TJ Sawyer meets Water Canyon Trail

    Water Canyon Trail is popular with many of the locals in Los Alamos.  
    It is a short, easy journey along an old wagon road through an aspen and pine forest.  Its scenic beauty is unsurpassed, boasting permanent streams, wildflowers and emerging butterflies.
    Paying closer attention, however, you may notice something more about this trail. There is definitely more than meets the eye.
    This is a trail that many have traveled hundreds of times. Bees collect pollen for their hives and evidence of deer and elk show the area’s popularity with the animal kingdom, as well.
    What might not be as well known, however, is that this trail has quite a bit of historical significance.

  • 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.
