WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM DECEMBER 30, 2020 - JANUARY 5, 2021 UCW 19 WEEKLY HOROSCOPE NEWS OF THE WEIRD by the Editors at Andrews McMeel Syndication Police Report The Lee County (Florida) Sheriff's Office said Jonathan Hernandez, 32, died on Dec. 12 while appar- ently trying to burglarize a home in Lehigh Acres after the window he was crawling through closed on him. According to the incident re- port, Hernandez's neck was caught in the window and he was dead by the time sheriff's deputies arrived. WBBH reported friends and family of the budding rap artist, who per- formed as Taz UFO, deny the bur- glary accusation and call for further investigation. Only in Canada Police in Sarnia, Ontario, arrested two suspects after they allegedly broke into the wrong house on Dec. 11 and offered to pay damages after they realized their mistake. CTV reported that residents of the home were watching television when two unnamed 27-year-old men broke through a door, one holding a ham- mer, and demanded money they claimed was owed to them. They apologized and left the home after discovering their error, according to police, who apprehended them. Likely Story Barry Joseph Watts told police in Fort Dodge, Iowa, that he had been walking by the building police found him in on Dec. 15, pulling on doors to see if they were unlocked and "entered the property to get warm," but after spending some time looking around the building, he decided to start taking items. Watts told officers he had taken gold teeth and a laptop from a den- tal business, but police also found cash, a $5,000 digital camera and burglary tools on him, including a screwdriver and a flashlight. KCCI reported authorities also found five doors damaged. Watts was arrested and held at the Webster County Jail. Lease Competent Criminal Police in Jackson, Mississippi, had little trouble identifying the man who they said passed a threat- ening note to a teller at a Trust- mark Bank and got away with an undetermined amount of cash, WAPT reported. Security cameras captured images of suspect Richard Jiles, 41, wearing a white shirt and camouflage jacket with a blue face mask pulled down below his chin to reveal his entire face. Jiles was later apprehended. Question: ere are so many shows adding COVID in the mix. Can we not escape, at least for an hour? — Robin Matt Roush: e fact that we're living through this challenging time in history is exactly why many shows on TV are reflect- ing the crisis. If it's escape you seek, there are countless shows to watch. But to expect produc- ers to ignore what's happening, especially on medical dramas, is disingenuous. eir shows hon- or the frontline workers while telling their fictional stories, and when contemporary comedies like "e Conners" and "black- ish" reflect how the pandemic has affected their very different families' lives, that's what makes them relevant. Ditto with police dramas that are facing the social unrest of 2020. To do otherwise would be irresponsible. When people look back on this season of "is Is Us," and see charac- ters wearing masks and children learning from home, it will act as a snapshot of a specific point in time, and that's important.

CBS's top-notch comedy about recovery hasn't stumbled a bit since her character, Christy, left home to attend law school. In fact, her absence has allowed Allison Janney's snarky Bonnie and her AA gal pals to become an ensemble we are powerless over. Jeers to "e Undoing" for not doing much with that finale. No twists. No turns. Not even a slight bend! To avoid spoil- ing anything for those of you haven't caught up yet, we'll just say that Nicole Kidman's collec- tion of coats was more surpris- ing than the uneventful reveal of Elena's killer.
