Twain time At a Billboard Music Awards press conference in 2003, Shania Twain said she’d have to be “really old” to have a show on the Vegas Strip. Now she’s reportedly in negotiations for a Caesars residency. Guess she’s old enough now. — Ken Miller, associate editor

Burn notice Artist Thomas Willis returns to town with a solo exhibit at Trifecta Gallery. If you haven’t seen his elaborate and superbly technical paintings created by burning the canvas surface, you’re missing out. — Kristen Peterson, staff writer

Statue envy In an effort to steal thunder from Rio de Janeiro’s Christ the Redeemer, a Polish town erected a 167-foot-tall Jesus statue. Can our Rio please follow suit with a replicated mini-giant Son of God? — April Corbin, web content editor
