Saban's Power Rangers

It’s Morphin time! Four “Mighty Morphin Power Ranger” actors are coming to Cape Comic Con on April 26 thru 28 at the Osage Centre. And they are bringing “Pokémon” and “Sailor Moon” voice actress Veronica Taylor, Marvel comics artist Greg Land and professional wrestler “Road Warrior Animal”. It is one of Cape’s biggest events, with more than 100 booths offering memorabilia, games, apparel and more. Plus, Comic Con hosts LEGO workshops, a trivia night, a movie screening, writing and painting workshops and a “Godzilla” presentation. Come dressed in your favorite costume.

It’s all about nature this week, with Earth Day coming on Monday, April 22. I am reminded of an Einstein quote: “Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.”

It’s the moment we’ve been waiting for: opening day of the Cape Farmers Market on Thursday, April 11. Local vendors take over the West Park Mall lot in front of Macy’s from noon to 5 p.m. every Thursday. And they’re bringing plants, lemonade, baked goods and fabulous homemade doughnuts – just to name a few.

This week seems especially focused on artistic expression. Thursday, April 4 brings music as Casting Crowns performs at the Show Me Center at 7 p.m. This Grammy-winning, faith-based group, with hits like “Thrive,” “Lifesong” and “Only Jesus,” stands out as the most played artist on Christian radio. They also hold the distinction of being one of a handful of American musicians to ever perform in North Korea.

This time of year, it’s all about getting up and moving, sports and fitness. It’s also about the crack of the bat and roar of the crowd – baseball and softball. Southeast baseball season is in full swing, and the Redhawks are set to face off Arkansas State at 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, March 26, in Capaha Park. Peanuts, Cracker Jacks and America’s favorite pastime offer the perfect way to spend a spring evening.
