Brooke Menapace’s mother-in-law Robbie Menapace was diagnosed with merkel cell carcinoma, a form of skin cancer in July 2021. That’s when Brooke and the rest of the family decided to join the Relay for Life cause by creating their own team. They named it High Desert Cycle - Side by Side and then they were off.

In preparation for the 2024 Relay for Life, which will take place on June 14, the team set a goal of raising $5,000. They’ve already beat that goal; they had raised over $6,500 at press time.

A Relay for Life team organizes fundraising events throughout the year to raise money for cancer research. The HDC-Side by Side team hosted a Galentine’s Day event and a plant...

Q: Where can I see the new Road House movie? It’s not playing in local theaters, as far as I can tell. The original movie with Patrick Swayze is one of my favorites. — D.D.

A: The remake of the 1989 cult classic isn’t at your local movie theater. Instead, it’s available now exclusively through Amazon’s Prime Video streaming app. The new Road House stars Jake Gyllenhaal (Brokeback Mountain) as a former UFC fighter working as a bouncer at a bar in the Florida Keys. There is also a romance (just like there was with Patrick Swayze and Kelly Lynch in the original), this time with a nurse played by Daniela Melchior (Fast X).

There are also plenty of fights — lots and lots of...
