WASHINGTONDec. 1, 2013 —Normally Sunday night TV is dominated by the NFL game of the week. But tonight’s game features two losing teams with the 4-7 New York Giants visiting the 3-8 Washington Redskins. If football fans find themselves looking for some action, they need not look any further than the mid-season finale of “The Walking Dead” at 9 p.m. on AMC.

AMC has mastered the art of keeping its viewers guessing by splitting their popular series into two mini seasons. Rather than battle for peoples’ attention during the busy holidays, AMC has split shows like “Breaking Bad” and “The Walking Dead” into two seasons within the broadcast year.

This means that after tonight’s episode; “Too Far Gone,” fans of “The Walking Dead” will have to wait till February of 2014 to see new episodes. This should translate into a record number of viewers tonight as the governor’s new army and the people at the prison face off in what promises to be a memorable episode.

If the writers hold true to previous seasons, this also means that we will see at least one key character killed off tonight. This is one of the many reasons “The Walking Dead” is the highest rated drama on TV. The people behind the show have made shocking their audience a foregone conclusion.

The only question that remains is who will die on tonight’s mid-season finale. As long as it isn’t Daryl, fans will probably be happy. But if they kill off the most popular character of the series, expect a huge backlash on all social networking sites. A virtual riot is almost guaranteed.

For fans of “The Walking Dead,” Communities will be hosting a live chat tonight at 9 p.m. Join fans from around the globe here.

For something more uplifting, at 8 p.m. CNN will present it’s hero of the year. Now in its seventh year, this yearly show honors every day people for their work to make the world a better place.

From providing computers to low income children to empowering young girls through education, tonight’s ten honorees are all truly heroes. If you want to see the difference one highly motivated individual can make in the world, look no further than tonight’s broadcast of “CNN Heroes: An All-Star Tribute.”

I was born and educated in Southwest Virginia, traveled with my job all over America in my twenties and early thirties then came back to the mountains to raise my daughter.

I’ve been employed as everything from a quality control technician in industrial construction, to a mail processing plant manager, to postmaster of a small town. I’ve been to forty nine of the fifty states, as well as many other countries. Traveling will always be a passion I indulge, and something I’ll call upon often in my writing. 

I come from a long line of story tellers, and will shamelessly exploit a family tree resplendent with colorful and unique characters, both past and present.

In short my perspective will reflect the pride and familiarity I have of my Appalachian heritage. My stories will be a reflection of the values I believe we hold dearest here, all embellished with a healthy dose of Southern Appalachian flare.
