WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM NOVEMBER 11-17, 2020 UCW 19 WEEKLY HOROSCOPE NEWS OF THE WEIRD by the Editors at Andrews McMeel Syndication Police Report Mark King of Wolcottville, Indi- ana, went to war with imaginary enemies after using methamphet- amine on the previous two days, according to the LaGrange County Sheriff's Department. Deputies responding to reports of a man swinging a broom handle around and hollering in a yard, found King as he left a neighbor's garage after having thrown a gun through the building's window. Previously, po- lice determined, King had allegedly shot up the inside of his own home, imagining that people were trying to break in and steal some of his be- longings. WANE reported King was transported to a hospital and later charged with possession of meth and paraphernalia. Least Competent Criminals John Travis Ross, 33, and Joshua Ray Corban, 18, were charged with conspiracy and attempting to smuggle contraband into the Central Mississippi Correctional Facility in Pearl, Mississippi, after a drone they used as a delivery device became tangled in a net above the prison fence, according to a Depart- ment of Corrections statement. The Associated Press reported the drone was caught and carried 2 ounces of marijuana, a cellphone, cigarette lighters, phone chargers and head- phones, corrections commissioner Burl Cain said. Investigators were able to trace the drone's flight and discovered security video showing the men launching it. Cain said of- ficials plan to reprogram the drone and use it at the state's maximum- security prison in Parchman. Suspicions Confirmed Brittany Keech of Belding, Michigan, got an unexpected bit of news with her mail last month. "Sitting right on top of the mail," she told WXMI, was a postcard dated 100 years ago -- Oct. 29, 1920. "Yeah, that's a little too slow," Keech said. The Halloween greeting from young Flossie Burgess was addressed to her cousins: "I just finished my history lesson and am go- ing to bed pretty soon." A USPS spokesperson said, "In most cases old letters and postcards — sometimes purchased at flea markets, antique shops —are re-entered into our system. As long as there is a deliverable ad- dress and postage, the card or letter gets delivered." Question: Please notify Netflix that there is enough of a fan base for "Stumptown" as was the case with "Lucifer" that fans want a conclusion. Is there a way to contact Netflix? Your input to Netflix could really help! — Steve Matt Roush: I hate to disabuse you of your belief in my influence, but Netflix isn't in the habit of consulting me about their programming deci- sions. However, Netflix does have a feedback area where you can suggest shows you'd like to see them acquire, or in this case, continue. Anything's possible, and I'd love to see "Stump- town" get new life, but "Lucifer" had the benefit of having three seasons already in the tank (as opposed to "Stumptown's" one and only) and having the supernatural cult vibe that seems to be one of Netflix's trademarks. To submit questions to TV Critic Matt Roush, go to: tvinsider.com. By Damian Holbrook Cheers to Samuel L. Jackson's return to the Marvel-ous world of TV. e original agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. is set to slip on his Nick Fury eye patch for a new series in development for Disney+, which has already as- sembled big-budget Avengers-based shows led by the Scarlet Witch (Eliza- beth Olsen) and the Falcon (Anthony Mackie). Cheers to Michelle Buteau for busting out. "e First Wives Club" actress-comedian, who's also had a slew of juicy guest spots on series like "High Maintenance," "Rus- sian Doll" and "Tales of the City," absolutely kills it in her Netflix com- edy special, "Welcome to Buteaupia." Riotous and real, she is definitely one to watch. Jeers to "L.A.'s Finest" for being a tad too fine. Yes, Gabrielle Union and Jessica Alba make for kickass police officers on the Fox/Spectrum Originals drama, and the high-octane action is a perfect guilty-pleasure es- cape. But someone needs to call the fashion police on Alba's character, Nancy, for running around in an ar- ray of long, flowy coats and sweaters that are criminally conspicuous.
