WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM NOVEMBER 25-DECEMBER 1, 2020 UCW 19 WEEKLY HOROSCOPE NEWS OF THE WEIRD by the Editors at Andrews McMeel Syndication Schemes Kimberly Ragsdale's apparent plan to get free food at a Chick-Fil-A in Rockmart, Georgia, ended in her arrest on charges of impersonat- ing a public officer on Nov. 5. Ac- cording to police, Ragsdale, 47, of Dallas, had repeatedly visited the restaurant, telling workers she was an FBI agent and threatening to arrest them if they didn't serve her a complimentary meal. Ragsdale continued her charade, the Associ- ated Press reported, telling arrest- ing officers her credentials were electronic and talking "into her shirt like she was talking into a radio," the arrest report noted. Rockmart Police Chief Randy Turner said in a statement to news outlets, "You will not hear a real officer demand a meal anywhere." Awesome Mayor Yutaka Umeda of the Japa- nese town of Yamato was puzzled when his name started trending on social media after the U.S. presiden- tial election, but he is now hoping his newfound fame will help him "promote the town," United Press International reported. The extra attention online came because the Chinese kanji characters used to spell Umeda's name can also be pronounced "Jo Baiden" — strik- ingly similar to U.S. President-elect Joe Biden. "Although there are dif- ferences in the positions of a U.S. presidential candidate and the mayor of Yamato ... our passion is the same," Umeda said. People with issues Police in Fruitland Park, Florida, arrested Ronni Leigh Kimberlin of Leesburg on Oct. 31 on charges of theft and disturbing a grave after she allegedly repeatedly removed items left at her ex-husband's grave by his fiancee. The grieving fiancee first complained to police in late September, records show, saying items missing from the grave in- cluded a pair of $250 sunglasses, hanging LED lights, hanging plant- ers, artificial flowers, a ring and assorted other items, all valued at more than $400. Kimberlin denied involvement, WKMG reported, but the arrest affidavit noted an ex- roommate came forward saying she was with Kimberlin when she stole the items, and police found some of the missing planters at Kimberlin's brother's home. Question: What do you make of Showtime's announcement that it will bring back "Dexter" next year? e show was great, but it seemed to run out of gas by the end, and no one was happy with how it ended. Is there more life in the se- rial killer of killers? — Alan Matt Roush: In some ways, "Dex- ter" was always a bit of a redemp- tion story, as this extreme version of an anti-hero, so well played by Michael C. Hall, saw his dark impulses and murderous acts as a way to rid the world of other monsters. Its run reminds me a bit of Showtime's other signature thriller "Homeland," which also started strong and had a few ex- cellent seasons, then lost its way, found a creative surge toward the end, and then wrapped it up in a way that left some viewers dis- satisfied (in both cases, sending the main character off into exile; Claire Dane's Carrie fled to Russia, supposedly as a traitor). "Dexter's" ending was controversial, and few were satisfied with the thought of him forever hiding from society as a lumberjack. So maybe this limit- ed-run comeback will redeem the show, and the character, by giving fans the closure they seek. To submit questions to TV Critic Matt Roush, go to: tvinsider.com. By Damian Holbrook Cheers to "e Young and the Restless" for giving us hope. Courtney Hope, that is. Her du- plicitous spitfire Sally Spectra has fled "e Bold and the Beautiful's" L.A. scene and is heading to sister CBS soap "Y&R." We can't wait to see what's to come for the fierce fashionista. Genoa City, you've been warned! Jeers to "e Haunting of Bly Manor" for being a crowded house. Yes, "iZombie's" Rahul Kohli and "You" alum Victoria Pedretti are scary good as a Brit- ish family's tormented chef and governess in Netflix's adaptation of Henry James' "e Turn of the Screw." But it's chilling how Bly's suspenseful vibe is killed by too many subplots that feel stretched out over nine episodes.
