Easter Sunday this year comes on April 20. But, Easter Sunday next year will be Sunday, April 5, 2015. The date for Easter is determined on a lunisolar calendar similar to the Hebrew calendar, in that they do not fall on a fixed date in the Gregorian or Julian calendars.
LOS ANGELES — The pre-pre-season opening kickoff of the 2014 National Football League schedule is returned for a score in "Draft Day," an entirely conventional serio-comic sports world melodrama that pushes its buttons with undeniable professional finesse. In his most effective full star turn in perhaps a decade, Kevin Costner dominates as the greenhorn general manager of the beleaguered Cleveland Browns who could emerge from the heavy shadow of his late revered father with the successful handling of the annual draft of college players.

Crews broke ground nearly 90 years ago on the 20-acre temple site, one of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints’ holiest places reserved for the most sacred of religious ceremonies. Since then, the building’s shimmery white exterior, carved friezes and manicured grounds have provided a welcoming oasis in the heart of Mesa. A visitor’s center is open to the public, and a lavish outdoor Easter pageant and Christmas lights display draw thousands of the faithful — and non-Mormons — each spring and winter.

Known for its turkey legs and Elizabethan attire, the Renaissance Festival is by far my favorite place to be. The gates alone act as a portal between times and, once crossed, the 21st century is left far behind. Within the first few minutes, I had been greeted by gypsies, pirates and a band of Vikings.
On the U.S. Army’s website are pages devoted to outlining the acts of heroism and courage committed by generations of soldiers. Staff Sgt. Manuel Mendoza’s listing concludes with an intimidating list of accolades accumulated during World War II and the Korean War, among them a Purple Heart and Italian Cross for Merit of War Unit Citation.
If you have a kid of a certain age — especially a girl, preteen or thereabouts — then you know the young-adult entertainment message of choice these days:

Dear Arizona House of Representatives,
The year 2012 wasn’t exactly the best for Highland High School student David Perre and his family. It was a Murphy’s law kind of year, one in which the family kept finding ways to return to the hospital with a slew of afflictions. Perre’s mom even lost a chunk of her thumb in a situation involving the family dog and some pork.
This Sunday the 86th Annual Academy Awards Ceremony will grace our TV’s. During the Ceremony, Arizona can be expected to be raked over the coals once again. Of course it is no longer the G-rated Program it once was. Now they have to use “L” for Language and “N” for Nudity alerts and probably “M” for Mature would be more fitting. We will of course be subjected to some male/female body part(s) being bared due to an “accidental” clothing malfunction. We will of course be subjected to f-bombs, c-bombs, s-bombs and other assorted profanity from the host/hostess, the presenters, and the awardees. Crocodile tears, mock surprise and humility will rule the day. The “best” movie will be awarded to one of the usual liberal Hollywood. Heaven forbid that any movie positively portraying a normal American family or having a pro-American theme would ever win an Oscar these days.
Wherever I go in the country, or the world for that matter, if there is a music-related site I take the trouble to visit it. When I was in Rio de Janeiro, I made a beeline for Garota de Ipanema Café and Bar, where the great bossa nova song “The Girl From Ipanema” was written. Last year, while in Nashville, I visited the new Johnny Cash Museum and in New York strolled by the Brill Buildings, where folks like Carole King (“Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow”) and Ellie Greenwich (“Da Doo Ron Ron”) wrote the songs we remember from the 1960s.
