    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.

    I’ve always said that one of the true benefits of DVDs is the chance to see your favorite TV series whenever you want to. Not only that, but it gives series a chance to be seen, especially when one series is programmed against another.

    Somewhere out there in an area known as Decatur, Indiana  — or perhaps its nearby regions — lives a person whose knowledge of history and desire to pose a question brought this city an unbelievable amount of fun and frolic — some of which is destined to carry into the future — and ignited a sense of civic pride and togetherness rarely seen.

    It seems only natural that Hollywood has sought out new sources of inspiration for movies. They’ve sequelized and remade just about everything under the sun. So when word got out that they were taking a manga (Japanese comic) story and turning it into film, fans were both glad to hear it and concerned if they were dedicated to the original source. For those of us unaccustomed to it, the film is pure entertainment.
