Fly on the Wall 1492 

WTF-TV

This week's most pulse-pounding local news spot was WREG's story of a grandmother who risked everything to save her grandchild from the terrifying maw of a five-foot hole.

"It seems shallow, but there's much more to this hole than what meets the eye," a WREG reporter said of the five-foot hole.

The grandmother realized the five-foot hole was curved rather than straight and she'd have to go in a couple of feet "just to lay a finger" on her grandson.

"All I could say was 'Lord, take me and not my grandchild,'" she said.

Thankfully, the Lord took nobody — and neither did Memphis' deadly five-foot murder-hole.

Leading

New Mexico's KiMo Theatre cancelled a planned screening of Gone With the Wind for reasons related to ongoing controversies about the continued acceptability of Confederate symbols. In August, Memphis' Orpheum Theatre made international headlines when it did the same (and did it first).
