Gerry Anderson may feel a little like Geppetto this weekend as his marionette characters from his 1960s TV series Thunderbirds break free of their strings in a new live action film. But though his name appears on the new production starring Ben Kingsley and Bill Paxton, "the movie version is not mine," Anderson, 75, laments over the phone from London. He lost control of the Thunderbirds, his sci-fi puppet series that ran in 1965-1966, about the time he was doing another series in his famous "Supermarionation" style, Fireball XL-5.

The Navy's famed Blue Angels aerial demonstration squad has canceled the rest of its 2013 performances, including dates this summer in Ocean City, in San Diego, Navy officials announced earlier this week. "This is one of many steps the Navy is taking to ensure resources are in place to support forces operating forward now and those training to relieve them," the Navy said in an official statement. The move was caused by the automatic budget cuts known as sequestration, officials said.

Tomorrow's schedule will be filled with lots of marathons, football and specials, and the New Year ushers in all sorts of new series. This, therefore, is unofficially not only the last stultifyingly boring TV night of 1994, but one of the last such evenings for quite a while into 1995. Maybe even for an entire week.* "The X-Files" (9 p.m.-10 p.m., Channel 45) -- This underground TV hit goes underground itself, in a repeat episode about a creepy and giant parasite living in the sewers beneath the streets.

Sometimes walking down memory lane makes a man feel 10 feet tall. "Everything looks so small," muses Todd Randolph, as he winds his way through the corridors of Garrison Middle School in West Baltimore, "because when I was here before I was so small." He's now Captain Randolph, age 35 and fully grown, a 16-year veteran of the U.S. Air Force. Dressed in a cool black jumpsuit. Wearing black shoes spit-shined so bright they twinkle. Randolph is one of 12 officers assigned to the flying Thunderbirds, that crowd-pleasing team of elite stunt pilots who will be performing this weekend at Andrews Air Force Base.

The stage was set on an August day at the Atlantic City, N.J., beach - blue sky, golden sand, white sea gulls, yellow tents and, of course, the exciting crowd looking above. The 2007 Thunder Over the Boardwalk air show got under way as people cheered thrilling demonstrations by the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds, U.S. fighter jets and many others.

When Spiro T. Agnew was elected governor on Nov. 8, 1966, even the most pessimistic Republican would never have guessed that 36 years would pass before the GOP again seized the governor's mansion. But who can ever guess what is truly permanent and what is ephemeral? (After all, look what became of Agnew.) We know today, but that's too easy. Here's a look at some of what Marylanders digested that historic day. Notable promise by victor: To build "a strong, two-party state in Maryland" Other notable gubernatorial winner: Ronald Reagan in California More happy GOP news: The Republicans pick up a whopping 47 seats in the House of Representatives and three in the Senate, and still they are hopelessly outnumbered in both chambers.

McHENRY -- Allow me to capture this moment atop southwest Garrett County's Roman Nose Mountain.From the clear blue sky a bright sun causes the ice on tips of overhead branches to sparkle like diamonds. The temperature is below freezing, and the floor of the forest is beneath 8 inches of crusty snow.I reflect on a perfect day. Moments before the noisy crunching of my boots in the snow sent two wild turkeys from a thicket less than 75 yards away. What a beautiful sight as -- once above the trees -- they set their wings to glide like buzzards over the steep downward slope on the west side of this mountain, once the stomping grounds of Mesach Browning.
