    If you wish to be in on the joke, watch Alfred Hitchcock's 1926 "The 39 Steps" first. Then see the new play at New Village Arts in Carlsbad. If you don't watch it, you may fall into the same chasm I did wondering what the blazes was A.J. Knox up to? And why? All was revealed after I watched Hitchcock's film noir on YouTube this morning. That's when I got it! The play is absolutely brilliant. It went from, "oh, golly, will I be banned from another playhouse for telling the trut...

  • Plentiful St. Patrick's outings a treat for ears, tongue and feet

    Tim O'Leary, Special to the Village News|Updated Apr 4, 2024

    And so I was clad in green with plenty of places to be seen. It was a St. Patrick’s Week to behold. An Irish soul with four places to go.

The four events made me ponder what it means to be a son or daughter of the Emerald Isle. It is a land of rocky soil and rugged beauty. There is joy, laughter, l...
