Nobody asked us, but ...: Plenty of arts to see during Easter weekend

HAPPY EASTER! May all the blessings of this most important Christian holy week be upon you.

Give thanks and prayers for your families and friends, then go hunt for eggs and pig out (isn't that what you do with ham?).

"Journey's End," Proscenium Players last play of this season, will open Friday and run for three weekends at the Brewery Arts Center, 449 W. King St. beginning at 7:30 p.m.

This is R.C. Sheriff's classic story of 10 men in the trenches of World War I. Powerful and poignant, it does not explore the rights and wrongs of war, but looks at the interaction of men who are caught up in it.

Directed by Tony DeGeiso, it also features the champagne/sparkling cider party on opening night. For reservations or information, please call 883-1976.

It is not the only play in the area.

"Hollywood Arms," by Carol Burnett and her daughter, tells the story of her early life in show business. It is being put on at the CVIC Hall in Minden and opens Friday night as well.

For information, call 265-6964 or 843-3493. Both plays are not suitable for children. And if you would like to direct a play for PPI next season, please contact Lisa Bommarito at

Bob Herzog sent us this "holy" story off the Internet: "A painter, Jack, was very frugal and liked to make a buck, so, when asked to paint the local church, he started in. To make his paint stretch so he wouldn't have to buy as much, he thinned it out with turpentine.

"He almost had the job done, when it started to rain and all the thinned paint was washed right off the church. Jack was thrown off the scaffold by a lightning bolt, but he was no fool ... he immediately got on his knees and cried, 'Oh God ... forgive me. What should I do?'

"And from the thunder, a mighty voice replied ... 'Repaint, repaint, and thin no more!'"

Father Jerry is recuperating from gall bladder surgery and has been staying at the Cordiscos so that Ed and "Saint" Jennie can take care of him. He thanks you for all the good wishes.

Our deepest sympathy to the family of Jud Price. He was a great guy.

Good News: The WNC Wildcats will be meeting the College of Southern Nevada this Friday and Saturday at noon and 2 p.m. for double-headers at John L. Harvey field.

They are first and second in the Scenic West Athletic Conference and they want your support. Go and have a great time and eat a hot dog ... WE'RE NO. 1!

Mike's Pharmacy has a "remembrance board" set up in their store that has pictures of our men and women currently in the service. If you have a picture of a friend or relative who is in the military, come on in and post it. They all deserve our respect and honor.

Sol Jibe is at D'Vine Wine tonight at 5 p.m. ... they're greaaaat!

Happy B-day to Nolan Olson; and congrats to the cast and crew (and Karen Chandler) for "Cats." It was WONDERFUL! If you missed it, tsk-tsk.

Fortunately, 87-year-old "Ma Tate" is doing better after her latest bout with pneumonia, and will be ready to hunt eggs on Sunday. Happy days.

John and DeeDee at Grandma Hattie's were born on the same day in the same year ... noooo, they're not twins, but she says, "He's the brother of another mother," and she's the "sister of a different mister." Cute one. Plus, they heat their teacups there ... another good reason to stop by.

The Jehovah's Witnesses invite you to commemorate the life of Jesus tonight at the Plaza Conference Center at 211 E. Ninth St. in Carson City at 8:30 p.m. Everyone is welcome.

Again, have a wonderful Easter.
