With a Hollywood Writers Strike Looming, Heres What to Know

LOS ANGELES The threat of a Hollywood strike is getting real.

On Wednesday, television and movie writers roughly 12,000, all members of the Writers Guild of America will begin voting on whether to authorize a walkout. The online vote will end on Monday. If members approve a strike, as they almost certainly will, and no pact with studios has been reached by May 1, fingers will stop typing and picketing will begin the next day.

A strike would have serious implications. When writers walked out a decade ago, the impasse cost the Los Angeles economy an estimated $2.5 billion. As production halted, income dried up not only for writers but also for set decorators, caterers, limo drivers and florists. Fans were not thrilled, either, as television schedules became a sea of reruns.

Longtime Hollywood power players agents, studio executives, labor lawyers put the chance at roughly 51 percent. But it changes by the day.

Tempers have cooled (a bit) over the past week, as negotiators for the Writers Guild and an organization that represents studios, the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers, have made progress on pay increases. But at least one radioactive issue remains unsettled: health care.

Long time Verde Valley residents in need

My good friend Arron Burnett was killed in a motorcycle accident on the Kūihelani Highway in Maui on Friday night.

In addition to the suffering his family is going through they are bearing the burden of making final arrangements with very few resources.

If you have a few extra bucks to spare, I'm making assurances they make it to the right place.

NOW is it Fitzmas?

Is it Fitzmas yet

What happened to Fitzmas?

I worked a 12 hour day hoping for good news when I arrived home. What gives?

A warning to keep plastic bags away from your pets.

I didn't want to make a big deal of it when it first happened because it hurt too much but about six weeks ago I lost my best road trip buddy and friend Maggie when she suffocated on a cat food bag while I was at work. I'm posting this now not for attention or to garner sympathy but as a warning. Every day someone loses a beloved pet due to suffocation. Everyone knows to keep plastic bags away from babies and little kids but I never thought they were a danger to our pets. I learned the hardest way. I lost Maggie to a Science Diet cat food bag that I thought was stored out of her reach, three feet off the floor. It was too much of a temptation and it cost her life. Please don't let this happen to your darling fur babies. Check out the link posted here to see how you can prevent this from happening to you. I'll always have Maggie in my heart. I can never forget how she was the one with me day and night, always happy, through some of the hardest days of my life. I miss her every day.

So......I've moved to Georgia.....anyone here from Tucker?

Followed my honey who's in the movie/TV production biz.

We have a contract on a house in Tucker. I commute to the Old Fourth Ward to work.

Anything we should know before we move forward?
