WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM SEPTEMBER 18-24, 2019 UCW 27 WEEKLY HOROSCOPE NEWS OF THE WEIRD by the Editors at Andrews McMeel Syndication Mysterious Police in Hamilton Township, New Jersey, say an unnamed 80-year-old woman snoozed right through an apparent carjacking on Aug. 28 — even though she was in the car. The victim told police she had fallen asleep in her car, parked in her driveway, around 9 p.m. that evening. She called police around 4 a.m. to say she woke up on the driveway and her car was gone, but she had no recol- lection of how she got there, The New York Daily News reported. Police observed a fresh abrasion and bruise on her face. The car was recovered later that day in Trenton, but the search is still on for suspects. [Daily News, 8/30/2019] Crime report Izaebela Kolano, 49, of Nutley, New Jersey, pulled a fast one on Costco employees in two stores on Sept. 1, police said. Kolano first visited a Costco in Wayne, New Jersey, where she alleg- edly stole a $2,000 diamond ring. Then, authorities say, she went to a store in nearby Clifton, where she asked to see a $28,000 diamond ring — and handed back the $2,000 ring, which was similar. Costco employees didn't notice the switcharoo until Ko- lano was out of the building, the Associated Press reported. Po- lice found Kolano at home, and eventually recovered the ring. Kolano was charged with theft. [Associated Press, 9/4/2019] Ow! Ow! Ow! Jamie Quinlan, 12, of Louth, Lincolnshire, England, was bouncing on a trampoline in his friend's backyard in early September when a spring broke off and lodged in the boy's back. Jamie's dad, Ian, rushed him to Sheffield Children's Hospi- tal, where surgeons removed the spring. "It took them about 10 minutes to actually get the spring out of my back," Jamie told Sky News. "The doctors said they had never heard of some- thing like this happening with a trampoline." He said he didn't realize the piece of metal had entered his back, but "All my friends looked shocked." [Sky News, 9/5/2019] Question: I absolutely love "Yellowstone." I know there are things that we haven't yet uncovered about John Dutton (Kevin Costner), but down deep he seems like a strong man who puts family first. Per- haps he was distant after losing his wife, but the contempt his children have for him ... I just don't get. oughts? —Kim Matt Roush: Revisiting the subject since "Yellowstone" had its emotional Season 2 finale on Aug. 28 echoes the recent discussion in this column about Beth's vicious loathing for brother Ja- mie. e way I see John Dutton is as a classic anti-hero, whose drive to build and save his ranch was achieved so ruthlessly that it pretty much destroyed his family, made worse by the prema- ture death of a wife who, while also a tough cookie from what we've seen in flashbacks, could have smoothed out his rough edges. His children obviously did everything they could growing up to incur his favor, or even love, often at the cost of their own souls. ey all see their own damage as coming from the top, blaming their father even as they revere and fear him. It's complicated, as it ought to be, and casting Kevin Costner in the role, working against his own early career image as an admirable hero, reminds me how it felt back in the day when they would cast someone like Henry Fonda or James Stewart against type as a villain. To submit questions to TV Critic Matt Roush, go to: tvinsider.com. by Damian Holbrook Cheers to "BH90210" for redefining re- vivals in the zippiest, wittiest way. Part soap, part spoof and all we wanted from a reunion, Fox's hit featuring the origi- nal 90210-ers as embellished versions of themselves is a sharp and smart love letter to the old show and their late pal Luke Perry. Megaburgers at the Peach Pit for everyone! Jeers to Netflix for burying "Mindhunt- er." Given the heaps of praise Season 1 garnered, it's a mystery as to why the streaming service dropped the much- anticipated Season 2 of its stellar drama starring Jonathan Groff, Holt McCallany and Anna Torv as serial-killer profilers on Aug. 16 with so little fanfare.
