Police Struggle To Cope With Cop Killer's Aftermath
Huffington Post - about 4 years
BIG BEAR LAKE, Calif. -- As soon as he heard officers were chasing the suspected cop killer in a stolen truck, San Bernardino County Sheriff's Deputy Roger Loftis was certain: His buddy Jeremiah MacKay would be there. In 15 years with the department, "Jer" had earned about a dozen and a half awards for 10851s – the California penal code for grand theft auto. Once, while heading to a bar to celebrate another award, MacKay noticed there were no keys in the ignition of the car next to him at a traffic light, and he veered off. He waltzed into the bar two hours later, a grin stretched across that fair, freckled face, a copy of an auto recovery record in his hand. Last week, Loftis called his fishing, drinking and golfing buddy to see how he was doing. He knew the 35-year-old detective had been working around the clock, scouring the San Bernardino Mountains in the search for former Los Angeles Police Officer Christopher Dorner. "If that guy's still on this mounta ...

Creator Of 'That Girl' On Marlo Thomas, Snooki And Today's Best Sitcom
Huffington Post - over 4 years
In 1966, a little show called "That Girl" starring Marlo Thomas as accident-prone Ann Marie burst onto the small screen, breaking ground as the first TV series to feature a "career woman" in the big city, seeking to make it on her own (with just a little help from boyfriend Donald Hollinger.) That Guy behind "That Girl" is Bill Persky, a five-time Emmy Award-winning writer, director and producer for such hit TV shows as "The Dick Van Dyke Show," "The Sid Caesar Show," "The Bill Cosby Show" and "Kate & Allie." Persky's new book "My Life Is a Situation Comedy" is a memoir that describes how the 81-year-old legend blazed a trail in television and created some of the most engaging female characters in TV history. The book, as the author describes it, stars a wide range of well-known figures, from Orson Welles and Cary Grant to Fred Astaire and Peter Sellers -- all players in Persky's life. We recently spoke with Persky -- the father of three daughters -- about ev ...

Auburn murder suspect's attorney seeks to move trial
Fox News - over 4 years
An attorney for a Montgomery man accused of killing three people in a shooting at a party near Auburn University said Thursday she will ask that his trial be held outside of Lee County, where the school is located. Attorney Susan James said she was worried it would be difficult for Desmonte Leonard, 22, to receive a fair trial in Lee County because the slain included two former players, and a current player also was injured. "We need to get the trial out of Lee County. There's so much interest in that there" James said. James was one of three attorneys appointed Thursday to represent Leonard when he said he couldn't pay for his defense. Leonard faces three counts of capital murder and two assault charges in the shootings that apparently occurred after a fight over a woman. He is being held without bond. James helped Leonard turn himself in Tuesday after an intense three-day manhunt. She said she picked him up at an undisclosed location about 50 miles from Montgomery. She ...

Suspect in shooting near Auburn University that killed 3, turns himself in to authorities
Fox News - over 4 years
The three-day hunt for a man charged with killing three people near Auburn University ended with the suspect walking up the steps of an Alabama courthouse and peacefully turning himself in to a U.S. Marshal waiting inside. Hours after his surrender, Desmonte Leonard was being held early Wednesday in a Montgomery jail. He'd been on the run since Saturday, when authorities said he opened fire after a fight over a woman at a pool party. The manhunt was vexing for authorities who first dealt with misinformation from people who know Leonard, then narrowly missed catching him at a Montgomery house they searched inch-by-inch for nine hours. "It's been a trying case for all law enforcement involved," Auburn Police Chief Tommy Dawson said at a news conference announcing the arrest Tuesday night. Investigators said they believe the pressure of being on the run had finally gotten to Leonard. A Montgomery defense attorney said she arranged for him to ...

Remember the Titanic With These Movies
Easton Patch - almost 5 years
On April 15th, 1912, the greatest ship the world had ever known sank in the north Atlantic on its maiden voyage. A hundred years later, the Titanic still remains with us, in memory, history, legend, and as a rusting, disintegrating ruin two and a half miles down on the bottom of the ocean. With the re-release in theatres of James Cameron’s 1997 blockbuster (now upgraded to 3-D), part of a phalanx of commemorative events to help honor the Centenary anniversary of the great ship’s demise, the legend of the RMS Titanic is poised to remain with us for the next hundred years. The cold Atlantic waters had scarcely closed over the Titanic’s massive stern before the first film version of the tragedy flickered on movie screens a mere month after the tragedy. Titled Saved From the Titanic, and running all of nine minutes, it starred and was co-written by actual survivor Dorothy Gibson. The next three decades would find three other notable films that carried on the Titanic story—Atlanti ...

'Bones': Booth and Brennan's new home, including baby's room
LATimes - almost 5 years
It took six long years, but at the end of the most recent season of "Bones," Dr. Temperance Brennan (Emily Deschanel) and FBI Special Agent Seeley Booth (David Boreanaz) finally became a couple with a baby on the way. When the show returns Monday night, fans will get their first look at Brennan and Booth's new home -- "a rather grand place, a white elephant which Booth bought and turned into a place Brennan would enjoy," show runner Hart Hanson said. Deschanel's take on the place: It looks like the love child of a history museum curator and a nostalgic kid-at-heart. "I want it!" the actress said. At Fox Studios in Los Angeles, production designer Val Wilt and set decorator Megan Malley-Cannon produced a two-story, five-room home that integrates the retro Americana, sports-infused vibe of Booth’s old apartment with the Asian-inspired look of Brennan’s former loft. In other words, Buddha meets baseball. "The house is what they share together," Wilt said. The result is a tradi ...
