MARCH 27-APRIL 2, 2019 UCW 27 WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM WEEKLY HOROSCOPE NEWS OF THE WEIRD by the Editors at Andrews McMeel Syndication Going out in style Drivers along southbound In- terstate 880 in Hayward, Califor- nia, were pleasantly surprised on March 4 when they saw $20 bills flying through the air. Some mo- torists stopped to collect as many as they could, but the mystery lay in where they came from. The next day, members of a family, who wished to remain anonymous, admitted to KTVU that they tossed $500 worth of bills into the air as they drove back from a funeral; the unexpected windfall was in- tended to honor their deceased family member. It's an "Oakland thing," one person explained. [KTVU, 3/5/2019] Religious interpretation Brewery worker Del Hall of Newtown, Ohio, is taking an un- usual approach to fasting for Lent this year. Hall, who works at the Fifty West brewery in Dayton, is going on an all-beer-only-beer diet until Easter. He told WKRC- TV that monks from the 1600s inspired him. "(T)hey would take a popular style of beer in Ger- many, bock beer, make it extra hearty and that would be their liquid bread, and that's what they call it," Hall said. He is, however, including all types of beer in his Lenten fast. "(T)his seems very daunting," Hall noted. "I'm just curious if I'm up to the challenge." He is planning to check in with his doctor during the fast. [WKRC, 3/11/2019] Scrooge report As Clayton Lucas, 25, was being transported through East Deer Township, Pennsylvania, from a halfway house to a treatment class on the morning of March 4 (69 days after Christmas), the van driver regaled him with Christmas songs. Turns out Lucas isn't a fan of holiday tunes, so he reached into the front seat and began choking the unnamed driver, who was strangled almost to the point of losing consciousness, according to police. KDKA reported that an- other driver flagged down a state trooper and alerted him about an altercation happening on the shoulder of the highway. After a struggle to get handcuffs on Lucas, the officer deposited him in the Allegheny County Jail, where he will face multiple charges. [KDKA, 3/8/2019] ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 You might have to make a few concessions in the short-term if you are eager to make real progress in the long-term, Aries. Eventually all things will even out. TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Put exercise to the forefront of your list of things to do, Taurus. If you have not been physically active lately, work slowly and diligently to build up your endurance. GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Important decisions cannot be made in a matter of minutes, Gemini. You really have to work through all the angles. Seek opinions from trusted friends. CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 Make a list of things you need to accomplish this week, Cancer. If you let it all sit in your head, you are bound to get overwhelmed and forget something. LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 Leo, there are a few ways a situation at work can go. Not every path may meet with your utmost approval. But you may have to swal- low your pride and compromise. VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 If illness has been going around, Virgo, do your best to avoid getting sick. Be diligent in handwashing and other preventive measures. LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 Even the most doting parents can use some down time once in a while, Libra. Plan an adults-only date night and enjoy some well- deserved conversation. SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 Scorpio, illnesses or medical obstacles can have many sources - from the foods you eat to your emotional wellness. Start jotting things down in a journal to figure out how to feel and look your best. SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 Your perseverance is a source of inspiration to others, Sagittarius. Don't be bashful when others share these thoughts with you. Accept their well wishes and give thanks. CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 Hold tight to those friends who have your best interests at heart through happy and trying situations, Capricorn. ese are the people you can call upon this week. AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 For so long you have been doling out advice to other people and helping them improve their lives, Aquarius. Now you are the one who could benefit from some counsel. PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 Pisces, a recent birthday celebration could have you feeling like you need to make drastic changes. But small ones can fit the bill as well. Question: What's the latest with "Law & Order: Hate Crimes?" Could "L&O:HC" be the latest in a long line of potential new programs that re- ceived a lot of buzz but for whatever reason never made it to air? — Alex Matt Roush: Recently, it was re- ported that the "SVU" spinoff has been indefinitely delayed. A "back- door" pilot had been planned to air within an episode of "SVU" this sea- son to launch a spinoff about a Hate Crimes unit, but that's no longer hap- pening during the current season. I wouldn't count it out from hap- pening eventually, and it may even be encouraging that they didn't rush it to air, giving more time for the develop- ment and casting process. It's a very topical but loaded subject, and I'd like to see them get it right. (But with Dick Wolf 's company looking to expand the CBS FBI franchise while main- taining so many other productions in New York and Chicago, they clearly have a full plate.) Question: Why are all of the "Hawaii Five-O" episode titles in Hawaiian languages? Speaking true Hawaiian is not common. — Don S. Matt Roush: Isn't that reason enough to do it? Looking past the two white male leads who were built into the formula, "Hawaii Five-O" has tried from the start to honor and reflect Hawaiian culture, and the epi- sode titles are part of that. I dig it. To submit questions to TV Critic Matt Roush, go to: tvinsider.com. by Damian Holbrook Cheers to "Grey's Anatomy" for mak- ing it to puberty. Fifteen seasons ago, Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) scrubbed in to her internship, and we are still picking, choosing and loving her as the ABC series becomes TV's longest- running primetime medical drama. Jeers to MTV for stifling their "Scream." Round 3 of the horror adap- tation — which was designed to reboot the franchise with a cast including Ty- ler Posey and Mary J. Blige — wrapped over a year ago and there's still no pre- miere date. Did Ghostface kill this too?
