Look out for your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man in the newly released movie "Spider-Man 3. " The web-slinging superhero is back again for his third big-screen appearance. This movie is not as action-packed as the other two "Spider-Man" movies, but it's pretty good. Spider-Man's real-life identity is freelance news photographer Peter Parker, played by Tobey Maguire. Parker loves Mary Jane, played by Kirsten Dunst, and she loves him. We know that much. What we don't know is how long their love will last.

Comic book fans' favorite webhead is back again in the third installment in the epic Spider-Man movie franchise. "Spider-Man 3" picks up pretty much where "Spider-Man 2" left off. Peter Parker is getting through college no problem, and he's with the love of his life - Mary Jane Watson. So, life is good. But while on a date with Mary Jane, a meteorite crashes nearby. From the meteorite comes a strange black goo that attaches itself to Parker's moped. This black goo later attaches itself to Parker and forms a new, black costume.

One of our newsroom's copy editors recently caught the misspelling of Spider-Man in a news story being edited for publication in our newspaper. I would have bet almost anything that Spider-Man was spelled like Superman - as one word without the hyphen. But it's not. The copy editor that night correctly placed a hyphen in the word and then - and I found this more incredible - made the "m" uppercase. The change was logged into an e-mail sent to me each night for inclusion in a daily memo called "Catch of the Day. " "Catch of the Day" actually is a compilation of mistakes in grammar, punctuation, style and spelling that our copy desk editors catch once reporters file their stories each night.

HAGERSTOWN The mother of a girl who was abducted from her apartment and sexually assaulted last month said Thursday she is afraid the attacker's next victim won't get away. The woman, who lives with her four children and fiance at Oak Ridge Park Apartments on Downsville Pike, said her 11-year-old daughter was sleeping at about 4 a.m. May 10 when a man wearing a mask broke into the window of the first-floor bedroom she shared with her 8-year-old sister. "He was sitting on top of her like this, and he said, 'If you scream, I'll kill your mother and your little sister,'" said the victim's mother, who crouched above a bed near the window where the man broke in, showing how he put his hand to her daughter's mouth.

No one wants to wear clothes that seem dated. Not even Spider-Man. As some of you may or may not know, earlier this year, Spider-Man started sporting a very cool, new costume. In "Amazing Spider-Man" No. 30, writer J. Michael Straczynski goes into more detail about its abilities. The new duds are fire retardant, bulletproof to small calibur bullets, have mechanical spider legs coming out the back, and have a unique cloaking device that not only make Spider-Man hard to see but can also look like some of his older costumes.
