  • A little brown dog lays in an astral bed, his twitching body on a mat covered in the word “bone,” one eye tipped toward heaven.

    A studded collar rings his neck, the studs echoing a cascade of colorful dots as if the dog sleeps in space, his body ringed with licks of fire. Artist Marcia Henning’s “Harpo Dreaming,” an acrylic on canvas painting, celebrates the life and hopeful afterlife of a dearly departed pet in her June exhibition at Traveler’s Cafe.

  • There are so many thoughts and questions about the future during graduation. It really begins the day that senior week starts For some, it begins on Sunday, for the senior mass, and for others it begins on Monday at the “mandatory” baccalaureate.

    We pull our gowns over our heads for the first time and laugh at how funny they look. Going back to baccalaureate, why even have it? All week everyone was asking, “What is baccalaureate”? The only response that came up was “some inspirational talk.” Why are any of these rituals necessary?

  • Pianist Linda King and violinist Krzysztof Zimowski will join forces in a recital of music for violin and piano, and solo piano, on Sunday, June 1, at 3 p.m. at Kennedy Hall on the NMHU campus. They will play music by Wieniawski, Schubert, Chopin, and Beethoven, including the famous “Moonlight” Piano Sonata.

  • A woman and man dance, arms arched together in continuous embrace. The woman’s hair cascades down her shoulders, following the curve of her back. Her right foot reaches beneath her man’s legs, giving the terra cotta sculpture a breath of captured movement, of music

  • A row of Las Vegans stand at the front of the First United Presbyterian altar prior to Sunday service, smarty dressed in white dress shirts and black cotton gloves. They wait, each holding the handle of a gilded bell.

    Conductor Karyl Lyne raises her arms, pointing at one ringer, then another, coaxing tones into the sanctuary. A cascade of clear chimes fills the space. The music is gentle, familiar, reminiscent of Christmas, of old-fashioned weddings. The ringers concentrate, lifting each bell and thrusting it with precision.

  • A disciplined and serious — and lighthearted — group of young people prowled and pounced around the wood-floored room. They were practicing a song from the musical Cats. Clear strong voices filled the air. This group of sixteen singers from the West Las Vegas High School Honors Choir will delight music-lovers at the City of Las Vegas Museum on Wednesday, May 21, at 6 p.m. The program is sponsored by the Friends of the City of Las Vegas Museum.

  • For years, East vs. West was the biggest high school rivalry. Everything seemed to be measured by if you played for Robertson or West. Every football game and basketball game was sold out and the season’s success was determined by whether you defeated the cross-town rival.

  • As the school year snakes toward summer, school workers across the county hold their breath in anticipation, wait for the last bell to chime, the last report card to compose, the last classroom to clean.

    The end of May means graduation preparation, means prom music and decorations to choose, means exhibit and event designed to showcase each student’s intellectual, social, and artistic progress throughout the academic year.

  • As of today, Robertson High School seniors have only 17 schools days left on the calendar. Though time seems to be passing slower than ever before, we will be graduates in no time.

  • What did kids do on a sunny day 150 years ago, before the invention of the iPod, mp3 player, X-box or cell phone? Children can find out on Saturday, April 26, 2008, at Fort Union National Monument when the National Park Service celebrates Junior Ranger Day. This is in association with National Park Week, specifically “kids in parks” and away from the TV and video games. By celebrating the Junior Ranger program, children are connected to American history and the natural and urban wonders within our parks. The program urges children to explore and protect these resources.
