WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM OCTOBER 20-26, 2021 UCW 19 WEEKLY HOROSCOPE NEWS OF THE WEIRD by the Editors at Andrews McMeel Syndication Compelling Explanation Some students at Piedmont High School in Union County, North Carolina, were upset after a sign reading WHITE was placed on a drinking fountain at the school, The Charlotte Observer reported in September. A Snapchat video of the sign circulated on social media, and parents became upset, prompting a response from Principal Dylan Stamey, who said he had investigated and the placement of the sign "was not intentional." "During practice, a cheer sign was left just outside the gym on the floor, and it was picked up and placed on a water fountain. We apologize if anyone was offended," he said. Too Good To Be True? Two men in Byram, Missis- sippi, couldn't believe their luck when they came across an Acura with keys in the ignition and a "free car" sign, People. com reported. They drove the car to a family member's home and started to check it out, and that's when they found a sur- prise in the trunk: the body of 34-year-old Anthony McCril- lis. The body had been there at least 24 hours, noted Copiah County Coroner Ellis Stuart. The men called 911 and waited for authorities; the car was registered to McCrillis, and his death is a mystery. He had "no visible signs of trauma," Stuart said. An autopsy is underway. Oopsie A funeral home in Ahoskie, North Carolina, was reportedly trying to apologize to the family of Mary Archer after an incident at her viewing, the New York Post reported. When Archer's two daughters arrived at Hunt- er's Funeral Home, they found a woman wearing Archer's clothes in the casket – but it was not Mary. "There's no similarity in the person," Jennetta Archer said. "Their size was way off ... she was so small compared to my mother." At first, funeral home personnel argued that it was indeed Mary in the casket, but then they found her body in the embalming room. While the funeral home claims to have reached out to apologize, the sisters say they haven't heard from the business. Question: Why are the "coaches" on "e Voice" allowed to bore us with nonsense, when the show is supposed to be about the discov- ery of new talent? I don't want to watch coaches convince us that they still "got it." — Michal K. Matt Roush: I agree with you that the coaches regularly up- stage the contestants, which may be why so few if any "Voice" winners have achieved the level of fame of an early "American Idol" champ like Kelly Clarkson. But again, this is the formula that works for "e Voice," and while that keeps me from being a fan once the Blind Auditions are over -- that's the genius part of the show – their star power is the engine around which every- thing else on this show revolves. at's not likely to change.

As a talk-show phenom mom on the HBO Max comedy (which moved from Com- edy Central for Season 2), the "Sat- urday Night Live" vet is stealing every scene-- and our hearts. Cheers to "Chapelwaite" for being scary good. Based on a Stephen King short story, Epix's "Salem's Lot" prequel starring Adrien Brody as a 19th-century New Englander facing racist vil- lagers and ravenous vampires is a slow-burn thrill packing horrors both supernatural and surpris- ingly timely. Jeers to Food Network for canning Jonathan Bennett. After five years of adding a salty- sweet charm to the channel's sea- sonal "Halloween Wars", the lively "Mean Girls" alum was replaced by a new host, paranormal investi- gator Zak Bagans. Tasteless.
