Before I go too far into the world of sports, I’d like to give a shout out to the man who made me a cartoon, Derek Miller, who worked tirelessly on the sweet new header for this column. He went out of his way to do that for me and I thought it was note-worthy to name drop for him here in my space. Stay tuned for the column next week, “Halloween edition.”

So the Colts are 0-4, the NBA pre-season is cancelled completely, and my Atlanta Braves managed to find a way to blow it…again. What a terrible week it’s been for me and my sports.

Sitting here in the office on a brilliantly-sunny, unseasonably warm fall day. And I’m thinking about ice.
Or, more specifically, about ice hockey.
The NHL season starts tonight and, coupled with the ongoing Major League Baseball playoffs, it’s the junkie’s perfect fix — baseball and hockey on the tube at once (and no NBA to unnecessarily clog up the ESPN airwaves).

A battle could be be brewing between the City of Decatur and Mediacom, the city's cable provider.
Mediacom, it was learned at Tuesday night's city council meeting, is seeking to extricate itself from the $26,000 franchise fee it annually pays the city.

Honestly, I am tired of seeing the Halloween masks for Ghostface, the mask all killers in the SCREAM films wear every year at Halloween. Enough, already. That being said, it’s nice to see a new film in the SCREAM franchise being released in time for folks to rent during the Halloween season.
With all the potential killers killed off in parts 1-3 you would think the story would have ended. Then again this was a film franchise and when it comes to Hollywood box office, who cares?

Mostly by happenstance, I found a unique perspective on Sunday from which to soak in a remembrance ceremony marking the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.
Seated with my wife in the second deck of beautiful PNC Park, home of the Pittsburgh Pirates baseball club, we observed — along with the rest of the small September baseball crowd — a moment of silence, and then watched as a large U.S. flag was unfurled in centerfield by members of the Pittsburgh fire and police departments.

Tom Coolman is resting a bit more comfortably these days. Maybe the now-deceased, longtime sheriff of Adams County wouldn't necessarily have been pleased that Dick Tope was dead, but he certainly would be feeling good that Tope would never be leaving prison ... ever.
Before embarking on a long (16 years) career as sheriff and chief deputy (4 years) of this county, Coolman was chief investigator for the prosecutor's office in 1974.

It seems like whenever anyone in the film or TV industry decides to remake a popular series they always get it wrong. They either try to spoof the original poorly or create a show that is similar in name only. But when they do get it right it’s a sight to behold. Such is the case with HAWAII FIVE-O.
