Sculpted of snow and ice, imaginative shapes emerge at Cave Lake State Park during the annual White Pine Fire and Ice Festival slated for Jan. 14-16. Vying for prize money, teams of sculptors let their imaginations loose to produce creations that range from single fantastic figures to groups of shapes, some elegantly beautiful, others drawing smiles. The event culminates with a fireworks show at 6 p.m. Jan. 16, after judging is complete.
By almost every measure, “Glee” was the series of the year. Emmy Awards. Grammy nominations. Sold-out concerts. More magazine covers than you could shake a half-naked Lea Michele at. The musical comedy dominated seemingly every arena but one: consistency.

My favorite restaurants in Las Vegas? That varies greatly, not only from year to year but from day to day, as I continually discover new spots and re-examine venerable ones.
