Anne Heche’s son Homer Laffoon granted control over late mother’s estate

Anne Heche’s son Homer Laffoon has been granted control over his late mother’s estate. The 20-year-old was given control over Heche’s belongings Wednesday — marking the end of a bitter back-and-forth between him and Heche’s ex James Tupper. The actress died on Aug. 12 death following a fiery car crash at the age of 53. Her death sparked a legal battle between Laffoon and Tupper over the estate’s ownership. Laffoon was granted permission to “take possession of all the personal property of the estate of the decedent and preserve it from damage, waste, and injury,” according to court docs via People. Judge Lee Bogdanoff’s ruling ultimately...

On The Hunt

The two-day special youth hunting season concluded with 9,515 deer harvested this year, that’s according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources Division of Wildlife. Each fall, hunters 17 and younger take to the woods with a nonhunting adult for a special weekend of deer gun hunting. Locally, 41 deer were checked in Fulton County. The Division of Wildlife has issued 39,186 youth deer permits. Unused youth permits are also valid for all remaining Ohio deer hunting seasons. Youth hunters checked 5,126 bucks, 3,461 does, and 928 button bucks. In 2021, hunters harvested 7,632 deer during the two-day youth gun season. The three-year average is 6,559 deer. All of Ohio’s youth hunting opportunities are available to anyone who is 17 years old or younger during the season dates. Youth hunting seasons are also available for small game, wild turkey, and waterfowl.

Signature Tunes: Themes From Nyx Nótt

Aidan Moffat’s second outing as Nyx Nótt, an out-of-time set of faux themes, is as odd as it is compelling, says Bernie Brooks. When composer Dave Grusin and the songwriting team of Alan and Marilyn Bergman got together to knock out some television themes in the early 1970s, I doubt any of them were shooting for much more than a payday. It’s hard to imagine them writing for longevity. I mean, how long do most shows last? Tellingly, in the Bergmans’ wiki bio, television is hardly mentioned at all, let alone their theme songs – you have to scroll all the way to the bottom of the ‘Notable Works’ to see those. Grusin’s, meanwhile, slots TV themes near the bottom of his bio, just below film scores. Which seems about par for the course. Nevertheless, at some point in 1973 or so, this storied trio of showbiz jobbers wrote a 90-second ditty that has occupied a chunk of my brain for the better part of 43 years. I am, of course, talking about the theme to Good Times, which debuted along with the show on 9 February 1979 – the year I was born. Sung by Motown-er Blinky Williams and Jim Gilstrap and a gospel choir, the song is unquestionably something of an uncomfortable relic – but that doesn't make it any less catchy. So, there it’s been, always near the front of my mind, and there’s about a 40% chance that I’m humming it right now, as you read this, whenever it is you’re reading this.

Jayson Tatum spills on sand castle message that’s driving Boston every game

Jayson Tatum and the Boston Celtics have looked like a team on a mission this season. Well, I guess they are on a mission after losing the NBA Finals last season. Nevertheless, there was a lot of skepticism entering the season with the Ime Udoka fiasco. With Udoka’s suspension, that left Joe Mazzulla as the interim head coach.
