This past weekend saw an upset at the box office as "The Call" became the weekend's most successful new release, beating out the star-studded but formulaic magic comedy "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone. " Maybe it was just my relief at not having to review that bomb, or maybe it was the excitement of rushing out to a movie after midnight Saturday, but I found "The Call" to be surprisingly endearing. The same thing happened with "Chronicle" last year, and while "The Call" isn't worthy of the near-rave review I gave "Chronicle," I was at least glad to have gone out of my way to see it. Halle Berry stars as Jordan, a 911 operator who is traumatized in film's opening moments when she mishandles a call about a home invasion that leads to a girl's death.

The Hagerstown Suns adopted an assembly line approach to Saturday’s doubleheader with West Virginia. The Suns let Taylor Jordan’s fastball do all the work while the offense did the heavy lifting. Jordan dominated the Power with a complete game, four-hit shutout in the nightcap but they constructed a big inning in each game for a 9-5, 5-0 sweep of West Virginia before 2,413 fans at Municipal Stadium. Jordan, the Suns’ all-star starting pitcher, spent the night challenging the Power to hit his fastball in what became a much-needed complete-game effort.

He was controlling. Jealous, after the baby was born. But he had not been physically violent. Jordan Appel, 24, of Hancock, said her baby's father, Nicholas Ray McKee, displayed no blatant pattern of abuse. Yet 5-week-old Bella Appel of Hancock died in January 2010, and in December, McKee was convicted of first-degree child abuse resulting in death and other charges. He was sentenced to 35 years in prison. In retrospect, Appel said, there were "little things" she'd overlooked for fear of overreacting.
