WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM JULY 14-20, 2021 UCW 19 WEEKLY HOROSCOPE NEWS OF THE WEIRD by the Editors at Andrews McMeel Syndication Crime Report Aron Jermaine Major, 47, of Atlanta is accused of 17 counts of burglary after a crime spree that gave him the moniker "the crawling burglar," The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported. Starting last September, Major slithered through windows at metro Atlanta restaurants and across the floor, avoiding motion detectors, to rob the businesses of cash and liquor. He was finally apprehended in a traffic stop, where his signature clothing — a "black jacket with a distinct, gray, angular pattern on both shoulders and sleeves," according to police — and the tag number on his car gave him away. Major has several burglary convictions on his record; he was held in the Cobb County jail without bond. Suspicions Confirmed The Dutch owners of a 61-year-old Noah's Ark replica and the British Maritime and Coastguard Agency are locked in an "impossible stalemate" over the huge vessel, which has been docked at Ipswich, England, since November 2019. The MCA declared the 230-foot- long ark not to be seaworthy, so it cannot sail, the Ipswich Star reported, and the owners have been fined 500 pounds each day. The owners say the boat, home to a biblical museum, was always categorized as a "non- certified floating object." British Transport Secretary Grant Shapps has been called in to intervene. Wrong Place, Wrong Time A Volvo manufacturing plant in western Virginia got a surprise visitor: A young bear had some- how climbed up into the rafters of the building, 20 feet high and far from stairs or a ladder, and had become stuck. The state's Department of Wildlife Re- sources was called in, Fox News reported, and workers immobi- lized the bear with a chemical dart, then removed it from the ceiling using a forklift. "Given the location of the bear, odds were low that it would soon safe- ly leave on its own," said DWR officials. Workers were directed to stay in the business's cafeteria during the extraction. The bear was safely taken to a "suitable site for release." Question: What is wrong with those people at "NCIS?" ey have a great program with a great cast and they mess it up!! Emily Wickersham is per- fect in her role. Why write her out? I only hope the producers see the error of their ways and bring her back as a regular? — Cyndi Matt Roush: e good news is that they didn't kill her off, so she could potentially return on occasion, if not as a full-time regular. And while the circumstances regarding Bishop's (and Emily Wickersham's) depar- ture were a bit more ambiguous than the "Good Doctor" situation with Antonia omas, this didn't seem like an acrimonious split, though it's not entirely clear if it was a mutual decision. Seven seasons is a decent run for a supporting char- acter like this, especially consider- ing that not every "NCIS" fan was as enthusiastic as Cyndi about the agent hired to step into Ziva's con- siderable shadow. To submit questions to TV Critic Matt Roush, go to: tvinsider.com. By Damian Holbrook Cheers to HBO for wisely working with Jean Smart. After her sup- porting turns on "Watchmen" and "Mare of Easttown," Smart takes center stage in HBO Max's stream- ing dramedy "Hacks," where she dazzles as a Vegas comic trying to save her career. Jeers to to NBC for leaving us (cliff ) hanging. By canceling both of their sci-fi dramas, fans will never know what alien tech was keeping "De- bris'" secret agents (Jonathan Tuck- er and Riann Steele) in suspended animation or how "Manifest's" missing-plane passenger Ben (Josh Dallas) handles his wife's murder. Jeers to So-Good Bad Boys meeting terrible fates. We were barely over the gut-wrenching de- mise of rehabilitated dirty cop Dan- iel Espinoza (Kevin Alejandro) dur- ing "Lucifer's" fifth season onNetflix when "Walker" went and killed off rascally ex-con Hoyt Rawlins (Matt Barr) on e CW's drama. It's like open season on the troublemakers we adore! ARIES - March 21/April 20 Aries, an unexpected financial windfall that comes your way this week allows you to make some changes.
