How Jimmy Buffett Turned ‘Margaritaville’ Into a Way of Life

When I Love Lucy premiered on October 15, 1951, no one could have predicted that it would become one of television’s most beloved and enduring programs of all time. But a combination of innovative filming techniques, the dogged perfectionism of star Lucille Ball, top-notch writing, the “can do” attitude of the production staff, and the business savvy of Desi Arnaz, I Love Lucy topped the Nielsen ratings for four out of its six seasons and picked up a handful of Emmys along the way. And even though the show’s main stars couldn’t stay married to one another (Lucy and Desi divorced in 1960, after 20 years of marriage), they remained the best of friends. As Desi would proclaim until his dying day, “I Love Lucy was never just a title.”

13 Fantastic Museums You Can Visit for Free on Saturday

The Hornets were supposed to be the Spirit, while the Grizzlies were almost named the Mounties. Why is a team in Los Angeles nicknamed the Lakers, and what’s a team called the Jazz doing in Utah? Here’s the story behind the nicknames of all 30 teams.

Atlanta Hawks

In 1948, the cities of Moline and Rock Island, IL, and Davenport, IA—collectively known as the Tri-Cities at the time—were awarded a team in the National Basketball League. The team was nicknamed the Blackhawks, who, like Chicago’s hockey team, were named after the Sauk Indian Chief Black Hawk. When the team moved to Milwaukee in 1951, the nickname was shortened to Hawks. The franchise retained the shortened moniker for subsequent moves to St. Louis and finally Atlanta in 1968.

TV Guy: ‘Episodes’ enters its final season – Times Herald

Good news! “Episodes” (10 p.m. Sunday, Showtime, TV-MA) is back. Bad news! It’s not for long. The comedy enters its fifth and final seven-episode season.

Normally, I’m a bit dubious about a TV show set in the TV industry, a show about TV writers written by two TV writers (David Crane and Jeffrey Klarik) and starring a sitcom star (Matt LeBlanc, “Friends”) playing a sitcom star, namely himself!

But “Episodes” is smart and wickedly funny and, along with “Veep” and “Silicon Valley,” one of my favorite half-hour sitcoms of the past several years.

The series stars Tamsin Greig and Stephen Mangan as Beverly and Sean, successful British TV writers lured to Hollywood. They provide a sly voice of sanity in the midst of Tinseltown excess and delusion, personified by LeBlanc as an exaggerated version of himself, a TV star without boundaries or any shame.

Black Dahlia

It was a classic Hollywood tale from the start. A beautiful young woman named Elizabeth Short moves to Los Angeles to pursue her dreams. But the raven-haired beauty’s life ended in tragedy. In 1947, Short was murdered in Los Angeles. Her naked body was found in two pieces on a vacant lot. Severely-mutilated, her face had been slashed into a Glasgow smile.

Gambling with Mother Nature


DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Pete Walker is gambling with his island home near Sarasota Bay — declining to renew his flood insurance and taking his chances with potential storm and water damage.

The retired installation supervisor for Verizon lives in a Gulf Coast barrier island subdivision already vulnerable to occasional tidal surge, as well as — according to projections by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration — eventual sea level rise. Even on sunny days, high tides routinely push salt water from the bay upward through the storm drain in front of his 1920 home in Longbeach Village, Longboat Key’s oldest neighborhood.

“It gets in our yard quite often and got in the garage a few times,” Walker
