LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

F act and fiction both feed a Knoxville-produced horror movie, a part of an emerging East Tennessee film industry.

Baker, California, is just about sober-up distance west of Las Vegas, home of the Original Bun Boy Restaurant, and the self-proclaimed "Gateway to Death Valley."

There are still a few purists who go to baseball games to match wits with the strategy on the field, but they are outnumbered by those who stand and gawk, drink beer, and chat about anything but the sport.

Plus, basketball, comedy, and more!
