‘The Flash’ returns in season premiere with lighter tone, uplifting dialogue

Fans’ prayers were answered when the latest season of the CW’s “The Flash” premiered Tuesday night with a lighter tone in its aptly titled episode, “The Flash Reborn.”

“The Flash” follows comic book star, crime scene investigator and superhero Barry Allen as he fights genetically enhanced “meta-humans” in the fictional Central City with his super speed capabilities as “the fastest man alive.”

In previous seasons Barry (The Flash) fought villains with similar super speed abilities varying from alternate world speedsters to time traveling versions of himself. In the fourth season, The Flash is facing off against a new type of villain, The Thinker. Fans of The Flash comic books might recognize him as the genius inventor who created a “thinking cap” that gave him mental abilities that challenged Barry Allen’s intellect, not just The Flash’s speed.

For the past two seasons, “The Flash” has

Citizen’s Police Academy returns to Meridian

Because of popular demand, the Meridian Police Department will bring back the Citizen’s Police Academy in October. 

This “condensed” version of the police academy allows citizens to see what police officers do: how they process crime scenes, learn about the dispatch center, shoot a gun and drive a police car.

Taught by law enforcement officers, judges and attorneys, Meridian Police Chief Benny Dubose said alumni and other citizens said the class should be brought back. 

“It’s something we did several years ago, getting citizens in the city to attend,” Dubose said. “Alumni of the academy felt like it was of value.”
