C. J. Graham

C. J. Graham is an American actor who became known for playing Jason Voorhees in the sixth installment of the Friday the 13th film series, Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives. A 6'3" former nightclub owner, he was spotted as a potential Jason Voorhees for Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives when he was playing Jason in a night club act, impressing the casting people who were in search of a new Jason since the current Jason actor Dan Bradley wasn't coming across as imposing or powerful as they had hoped for, he played Jason in all scenes and stunts except for the Paintball scene which they had filmed with Bradley which marks the third instance of 2 actors portraying Jason in the same film. Graham reprised this role in the video for Alice Cooper's "He's Back", written for and featured in the film which blends footage from the film with some new footage; as of 2017, Graham has only played one other role – he appeared in the horror film Highway to Hell as the main antagonist, a made-up, silent monster called the Hell Cop.

As of 2010, Graham is the VP of casino operations at Thunder Valley Casino in California. This is similar to Heather Langenkamp and Richard Brooker, who are both full-time business owners and part-time actors, he has been known to speak of his time as Jason claiming that he would reprise the role in another film if asked. Graham is the COO of the Ague Caliente Spa Resort and Casino in Rancho Mirage, CA. According to an online interview with Kane Hodder, the actor who played Jason directly after Graham had, Graham had a chance to reprise the role of Jason years in 2003 when the long-awaited film Freddy vs. Jason went into production and the producers of that film were searching for a new actor to play Jason. Graham's agent wanted him to audition for the role again but Graham, both being a good friend of Hodder and feeling like the New Line producers were treating him unfairly with the re-casting decision, wanted no part in it; the role went to Canadian stuntman Ken Kirzinger. Graham visits horror conventions and loves to meet his fans and sign autographs.

It aired on Fox in the United States on September 10, 2006, is written by Josh Bycel and Jonathan Fener and directed by Albert Calleros. In the episode, Stan's determined to send a reluctant Steve to summer camp; the only one he finds is in Africa, it is a refugee camp. Back in Langley Falls and Roger pretend to be a married couple at events around town, but they can't agree on their backstory. At the refugee camp and Hayley arrive to take Steve back to Langley Falls, but Stan decides to stay for a while and run the place as a summer camp; when Stan tries to persuade Steve to go to summer camp, Steve refuses, wanting instead to stay home and spend time gardening. Stan does not give up, however. Steve tells Stan. Francine learns that Stan sent their son to an African refugee camp and demands that he bring Steve home. Wanting to help the refugees, Hayley tags along.

Once in Africa, Hayley discovers the workers feasting while the refugees are starving, tries to protest. However, after finding out that she will be staying in Africa for a while, she joins them. Meanwhile, Stan turns the refugee camp into a summer camp so Steve can have some kind of camp experience. Steve meets Makeva, an African girl about his age, but gets annoyed when his dad keeps bothering him. Just a group of rebels kidnaps Makeva. Stan suggests a "Camp-a-lympics" to the rebels, saying that if his team wins, the refugees get Makeva and their land back. Back home and Francine amuse themselves in town, pretending to be a professor and his wife, they meet another couple and invite them home, the subplot becomes a parody of Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, resulting in a bloody fight which wrecks the living room. At the Camp-a-lympics, the score is tied going into the final event, a foot race between Steve and the rebel leader. Steve wins the event, but Makeva runs into the arms of the rebel leader, whom she has fallen for.

Stan tells a dejected Steve that his first camp love dumped him too. As they fly home, who had spent all of her time eating at the UN headquarters there instead of helping the refugees, says she thinks she "gained the African twenty," while Steve thanks his dad for an "awesome" camp experience. Daniel Solomon of Cinema Blend gave the episode a mixed review, saying "Camp Refoogee" "in which Stan’s zeal to help his son grow up the right way leads him to send Steve to a refugee camp in Africa. Instead of correcting the mistake, Stan joins him and helps turn the place into Meatballs or Heavyweights, depending on how young you are. Like with all the jokes in American Dad, it could be better if the movies the episode parodies aren’t mentioned, but so powerful is the writers’ need to spew pop culture knowledge from every orifice that Stan makes direct reference to them several times. Hey kids! I remember Short Circuit! Isn't that hysterical?" The episode was watched by a total of 8.93 million people. "Camp Refoogee" on IMDb "Camp Refoogee" at TV.com

Asheboro Copperheads

The Asheboro Copperheads are an amateur baseball team playing in the Coastal Plain League. The team plays its home games at McCrary Park in North Carolina. McCrary Park was built in the late 1940s for the McCrary Eagles, a semi-professional team sponsored by the Acme-McCrary Corporation, still in existence today manufacturing women's hosiery products; the Eagles disbanded in the mid-1950s and the park subsequently became the home for the local American Legion Post 45 team and the Asheboro High School Blue Comets. In the spring of 2010, McCrary Park received some significant upgrades, including the installation of a state-of-the-art synthetic infield surface; the Copperheads first started participating in the Coastal Plain League during the 1999 season and in 2000 reached the CPL championship series but lost to Petersburg. They have made the CPL playoffs five of the past six seasons and were the No. 1 seeded team from the West Division in the 2015 league playoffs, although they lost in the opening round series.

The Copperheads went 34-22 in 2015, ending the regular season on a five-game winning streak and winning the second half West title before dropping two straight in the post-season. The team placed four players on the mid-season CPL West Division all-star team and had four on the post-season All-CPL first and second teams. Albertson and Wells were first-team selections, while Hamner and INF/P Ryan Colombo made the second team; the Copperheads earned the league's Organization of the Year Award for the 2013 season when the team set a franchise record with 35 regular season wins. Keith Ritsche, an assistant coach at Winston-Salem State University, an NCAA Division II institution that plays in the CIAA, became the team's field manager just prior to the 2014 season and held that position 2016. Former Copperhead Taylor Bratton, now a coach at Georgia Southwestern University, will become the first player to return as head coach in 2017. Ritsche returned for 2018 and remains for 2019. Asheboro hosted the CPL Petitt Cup tournament in 2006 and the league's all-star game in 2008.

Tayside

Tayside was one of the nine regions used for local government in Scotland from 15 May 1975 to 31 March 1996. The region was named for the River Tay, it was created by the Local Government Act 1973, following recommendations made by the 1969 Wheatley Report which attempted to replace the mishmash of counties, cities and districts, with a uniform two-tier system of regional and district councils. Since the Local Government etc. Act 1994, the former Tayside has been divided into the council areas of Angus, the City of Dundee and Perth and Kinross, the region's districts. Tayside Regional Council directly operated local bus services in the City of Dundee from 1975 until 1986, when bus deregulation under terms of the Transport Act 1985 was implemented; the restructured Tayside Buses became employee-owned in 1991, was sold to National Express in 1997, today trades as Xplore Dundee. Tayside continues to have a joint electoral and health board, it retained its police and fire services until they were merged, on 1 April 2013, into bodies known as Police Scotland and the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service, which cover the whole of Scotland.

Provision of healthcare across the region continues via NHS Tayside. Angus Council, Dundee City Council and Perth and Kinross Council formed Tayside Contracts as their commercial arm and to provide shared services, such as road and housing maintenance, winter maintenance and cleaning services across the former Tayside area. Tayside Contracts services are open to the public and all profits from the company are fed back into each of the three councils to bolster revenue to the local authorities to provide cash for services as a boost to central government and council tax income
