It's always fun to read crazy news stories. Stupid criminals and bizarre incidents make headlines across the country. Sometimes they happen in our own backyard. Here are some of the craziest local news stories the Quincy/Hannibal area has seen in the last few years.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month across the nation, but locally, many groups and organizations are planning events to raise awareness, raise funds, and to honor breast cancer patients and survivors.
'Gone Girl' is a hit. The new thriller starring Ben Affleck became the No. 1 movie in the U.S. last weekend, beating out 'Annabelle,' the sequel to 'The Conjuring.' I did not see 'Gone Girl' during its opening weekend, but it's a movie I'm interested in watching. On the other hand, it might be a better idea to read the book before seeing the movie.
People have been doing crazy stunts forever. Probably for as long as there have been people.There was a great special about Harry Houdini on the History Channel not long ago, and one of the his stunts they highlighted was when Houdini jumped off a bridge in St. Louis and into a hole cut in the frozen Mississippi River... with his hands shackled and body covered in chains. Dangerous stunts aren't new, but they're always making headlines. It has been announced that the "king of the high wire" is going to walk across a tightrope 50 stories high in Chicago... while blindfolded.
Is there a better time than October to watch scary movies? Even those of us fans that enjoy them year-round seem to particularly like watching horror movies around Halloween. Most of the cable TV channels amp up their horror programming at this time of the year, and Netflix has some pretty decent choices (and a few not-so-decent choices) for streaming
