WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM SEPTEMBER 22-28, 2021 UCW 19 WEEKLY HOROSCOPE NEWS OF THE WEIRD by the Editors at Andrews McMeel Syndication Wait, What? "Appropriate disciplinary action has been taken" in Hazard, Kentucky, after photos surfaced on social media allegedly depicting students giving lap dances to high school staff, USA Today reported. The incidents were part of homecoming week; Superintendent Sondra Combs said festivities included a "man pageant," which somehow led to the lap dances by scantily clad students. One of the grateful recipients was the school's principal, Donald "Happy" Mobelini, who is also the mayor of Hazard. "Using this as a teachable moment," Combs said, "we will provide social media training for our students and staff." But, she emphasized, the district "has a tradition of excellence and academics and everything we do" — apparently including suggestive bumping and grinding. Government in Action About 100 hippopotami that are descendants of hippos once owned by late drug lord Pablo Escobar have been recognized by the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Ohio as legal persons, United Press International reported. The hippos live in Colombia, but nonhuman animals are allowed to go to a federal court in the U.S. to obtain testimony in defense of their interests. Colombian attorney Luis Domingo Gomez Maldondo filed a lawsuit on the animals' behalf to save them from being euthanized, arguing that sterilization would be a better option. Creepy Residents of Ipswich, England, have spent more than four years be- ing troubled by a haunting rendition of the nursery rhyme, "It's raining, it's pouring ..." sung by a young child during the night. "It was waking me up in the night. It was absolutely ter- rifying," one woman said, according to the Mirror. "Last week it played for hours. It was just horrible." Finally, in September, the borough council's rapid response team tracked down the source of the chilling singing: It was a motion alarm in an industrial park. "The sound is only supposed to act as a deterrent for opportunistic thieves that come onto our property," a spokesperson for the park said. "The motion sensors were being trig- gered by spiders crawling across the lenses of our cameras, and it looks like we've had it turned up too loud- ly." The volume has been lowered, and Ipswich residents can now sleep at night. Question: I'm wondering which Fall shows are "can't miss" for you? — CCM Matt Roush: ere aren't nearly as many new network shows to pick from as there used to be. I just reviewed both "Ghosts" and "e Wonder Years" very positively as the fall's breakout comedies.ey're both terrific in very different ways, and I haven't missed an episode of either yet. I hadhigh expecta- tions for "e Wonder Years," given my fondness for the original series, but "Ghosts" is a particularly delightful surprise. Elsewhere, I've already made my admiration known for the ambi- tions of NBC's "Ordinary Joe", and I'm trying to find time to catch up on Fox's intriguing "e Big Leap" to see how it's coming along. Beyond that, the only new show I'm watching avidly — make that hate-watching — is NBC's "La Brea" as the guiltiest of cheesy pleasure. To submit questions to TV Critic Matt Roush, go to: tvinsider. com. By Damian Holbrook Cheers to "Law & Order: SVU" for ofor making it to 500 episodes on NBC. Now, don't you think we've waited long enough for Capt. Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay) and Organized Crime's Det. Elliot Stabler (Christopher Meloni) to finally get together? Cheers to "CSI: Vegas" for sweet- ening the pot. While rebooting the crime-scene classic with OG stars William Petersen and Jorja Fox might have been CBS's safest bet ever, the real payoff is what the fresh heat crew—played by Paula Newsome, Matt Lauria and Mel Rodriguez—bring to the (ex- amination)table. Jeers to Bravo for making us wait to watch what happens. Given the immense interest in the Erika Girardi legal drama this season, stretching out "e Real Housewives of Beverly Hills'" reunion over four weeks is, well, criminal.
