WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM FEBRUARY 26- MARCH 3, 2020 UCW 31 WEEKLY HOROSCOPE NEWS OF THE WEIRD by the Editors at Andrews McMeel Syndication Bright idea Ryan Sentelle State, 37, has been arrested in Salt Lake City after police said he admitted us- ing mice and hamsters to get free hotel rooms. KUTV reported on Jan. 30 that authorities allege State would release the rodents in a hotel room, then complain about them, prompting hotel workers to offer the room for free. State faces charges of theft by deception and criminal mischief. Awesome! Residents of an apartment build- ing in Kerala, India, were surprised on Feb. 3 when a pungent mixture of beer, brandy and rum began flowing from their faucets instead of water. Officials told the BBC that about 6,000 liters of alcohol confiscated on court orders had been buried in a pit nearby, but it seeped through the soil into the well used as a water source for the building. "The children couldn't go to school, and even their par- ents couldn't go to work," Joshy Malyiekkal, the building owner, said. Clever An unnamed 47-year-old Ital- ian woman convicted of fraud in 2017 in Sicily has been on the run since then, The Guardian reported, eluding authorities by hiding in convents. The woman moved to the northern regions of Italy and phoned convents pretending to be a sister "looking for help and claiming she was severely ill," investigators said. As she moved from convent to convent, she changed her identity, duping nuns who trusted her and thought her to be kind. Finally, a Benedictine nun grew suspicious and phoned po- lice, telling them her stories were "full of contradictions." Authorities verified her identity and arrested her. She now faces further charges of claiming false identity. What's in a name? A former employee of a finance firm is behind bars in Macon County, Tennessee, after allegedly stealing $51,000 in customer loan payments, WATE reported. Serena Swindle, 41, was arrested Feb. 5 af- ter a yearlong investigation by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation. She was held on $3,500 bond at the Macon County jail. Question: I am wondering what hap- pened to "Magnum P.I." Instead of "Mag- num," we have "MacGyver" in his place. — Lois Matt Roush: Now that "MacGyver" has joined the lineup while "Magnum" goes on hiatus, it has become a frequently asked question — given the confusion that tends to set in during midseason when established shows are pulled off temporarily to give another show a shot. In this case, the CBS procedur- als are sharing time periods, which is becoming increasingly common as the networks try to keep their lineups fresh. "Magnum" will return to the Friday schedule when "MacGyver" finishes its midseason run. Question: With each season of "Star Trek: Picard" being 10 episodes each, why didn't CBS just order one full season, di- vide it in two and just before it premiered announce the second half as a new order just to hype it as a success? — Unsigned Matt Roush: It was so obvious already that "Picard" would succeed that they didn't need to create this sort of stunt. From a more practical perspective, giv- ing the show an early second-season renewal instead of ordering a 20-episode season gives the writers and producers time to think and plan ahead, while not having to grind out episodes on the pro- verbial assembly line. To submit questions to TV Critic Matt Roush, go to: tvinsider.com. By Damian Holbrook Cheers to "Grey's Anatomy" and "Station 19" for staging their own crisis- filled crossover. Thanks to a solid two-part rescue at Joe's Bar — and Chandra Wilson's always awesome Bailey — Shonda Rhimes' Seattle-set dramas proved that Chi- cago first responders and comic- based shows aren't the only ones capable of must-see mashups. Jeers to "Riverdale" for making us Bug(head) out. e Feb. 12 episode ended with a thud, literally, as a zoned-out Betty (Lili Reinhart) seem- ingly bashed in the head of her be- loved Jughead (Cole Sprouse). Fingers crossed this bloody twist — a lready teased in a flashforward — is a misdi- rect, or #Bughead fans will need a ton of Ronnie's new rum to handle it.
