Knotts' health postpones hometown fest

Knotts' health postpones hometown festDon Knotts' failing health has forced his hometown to indefinitely postpone a parade and film festival in his honor that had been scheduled for Aug. 12-14. A doctor for the 81-year-old Emmy-winning actor advised him not to travel from Beverly Hills, Calif., said Stacey Brodak, executive director of the Greater Morgantown, W.Va., Convention and Visitors Bureau. Knotts, a Morgantown native with dozens of film credits, is best known as the bumbling Deputy Barney Fife on "The Andy Griffith Show" and as would-be swinger landlord Ralph Furley on "Three's Company."
