1. Keller Williams KWahtro is set to perform Saturday, April 23, at Crystal Bay Casino’s Crown Room.

Kaleb Roedel of Sierra Sun reported, “Along with Williams on vocals and guitar, the group features renowned musicians Gibb Droll (guitar), Danton Boller (acoustic upright bass) and Rodney Holmes (drums).”

2. Movie night? Try “The Jungle Book: 3D.”

Tahoe-based film reviewer Lisa Miller said, “Director Jon Favreau creates a 21st century version of “Jungle Book” for Disney Studios. Adapted from Rudyard Kipling’s stories, the story is set in the Indian jungle and centers around the adventures of 10-year-old Mowgli (Neel Sethi), an Indian orphan raised by wolves. Mowgli is living with his pack when nefarious tiger Shere Khan (Idris Elba) demands they turn him over, and he threatens to kill pack members one by one unless his demand is met.”

3. The Associated Press recently released its 4/20 report, looking at marijuana laws in the U.S. and around the world.

According to the AP, “Marijuana is illegal for any reason under federal law, but states have boldly experimented with allowing its use anyway, starting with California 20 years ago. Some states have made the drug legal for medical purposes; others have removed jail sentences for carrying small amounts; and some let adults 21 and older use it for any reason.”

4. Try Mom’s super meatloaf with horseradish with an online recipe.

5. Will laws being passed around the U.S. make landlines extinct? The Associated Press said, “Thirteen states in the past three years have said telephone companies can use alternative technology, like wireless and broadband Internet, to provide basic service. Maine is the first to end basic phone service mandates in communities where there is competition, said Sherry Lichtenberg, principal at the National Regulatory Research Institute.”
