Federal agents confiscated a loaded handgun at a Port Columbus checkpoint on Sunday. Its the eleventh time this year a passenger was caught with a firearm inside a carry-on bag. Transportation Security Administration spokesman Mark Howell says agents are also confiscating a smaller less noticeable weapon.
Nature Makes a Move
You may have noticed NATURE is in the process of making a slow move to its new time slot of 8:00pm Wednesday night. I confess to being a bit nervous about this move, NATURE is one of our top rated weekly programs. Currently you can still find NATURE on Sunday evenings in addition to the new Wednesday night broadcast. As a kid I remember Sunday nights starting with MUTUAL OF OMAHA’S WILD KINGDOM followed by THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF DISNEY. I always felt it was a nice transition as an adult to have NATURE followed by MASTERPIECE on Sunday evening. Fortunately for me, you the viewer don’t seem to mind the move, at least not yet.
I’ve been very pleased to see over the past couple of months that the Wednesday night NATURE is doing just fine. Personally I think that has a lot to do with the quality of programs the NATURE producers give us. This week is no different, RADIOACTIVE WOLVES will air this Wednesday evening with a repeat on Sunday, October 23 at 8:00pm. Sunday’s broadcast will mark the last time we’ll see NATURE on Sunday nights for some time.
NATURE: RADIOACTIVE WOLVES, a great title for a sci-fi movie, documents the lives of the packs of wolves and other wildlife thriving in the “dead zone” that is Chernobyl. Not much is left 25 years after the nuclear accident and as the years past and I see pictures of the town it reminds me of that earth without people series, less structures and more vegetation. Another great program from the folks that give us NATURE.
