After discovering the park is closed, the disappointed family forces him to open the amusement park and take them on the rides.

At first, Candy’s character was scared being held at gunpoint and being forced to ride the roller coasters. But after the ordeal, he tells the besieging police not to...

PICKRON-WOOD’S TEAM TOGETHER

The Archbishop Wood basketball team won its first championship last year, shocking Neumann-Goretti in the title game. But, it won off the court recently too.

You won’t hear President Donald Trump call Al Crosby a loser. He can’t. There’s no way. All Crosby does is win.

He led the Panthers to two state championship game appearances, winning one and losing one. He won over 95% of his games there and sent two-dozen players into Division...
