Rabid dog terrorizes town
This week, a dog by the name of Tim Johnson was killed in a residential area. The dog appeared to have rabies. The dog was shot by a local Mr. Atticus Finch.
"I thought the dog had rabies,” Mr. Atticus Finch said. “I didn’t want it going into another neighborhood and hurting someone.”
The owner Harry Johnson was very upset. “How can you just kill a dog without even contacting the owner or finding out if it even had rabies.” Mr. Johnson said “I want some sort of apology or else I will take this to court and I will sue.”
The sheriff of the town, Mr. Heck Tate, explained, “Atticus did the right thing, that dog definitely had rabies and I didn’t want it getting into any other trouble. I will admit that we should have called Mr. Johnson first but it was happening too quickly.” “Mr. Finch has the best shot in town, and I trusted him over me to shoot the dog.” Tate said.

Al Capone finally Jailed for Tax evasion
On this day, in 1931. Al Capone is finally sentenced to jail. This man was on the top of the FBI’s most wanted list for a long time. He got out of a lot of jail time by paying people off but now he has to own up to 11 years in jail. He was also fined $80,000. He joined a gang after being expelled from school when he was 14. After being in a fight and getting sliced across his face, he earned his nickname, Scarface. Capone moved to Chicago where he helped run Johnny Torrio’s illegal enterprises. Torrio’s enterprise consisted of prostitution, alcohol-smuggling, and gambling. Capone was finally put in charge after Torrio retired in 1925. Capone was known on a national level after the Valentine’s Day Massacre in 1929, where he kill seven of his rivals. Capone’s biggest rivals were known as the “untouchables”, because they could not be corrupted.
Miss Maudie speaks out
Hello, this is Maudie Atkinson and I have been living in Maycomb County all my life and I have never seen or heard of that disappointed more than Tom Robinson’s and Bob Ewell’s trial. I don’t see how the jury believes Bob Ewell’s testimony. There are countless people in this town that believe Tom Robinson didn’t do what the jury think he did. Bob Ewell has been trouble in this town since day one. As for Tom Robinson, he is one of the most respectful, kind and loving colored men I have ever meet. If this decision was made because it was a white man vs a colored man that is very disappointing. Tom Robinson shouldn’t be doing consequences for a crime that he didn’t even commit. Thank you for listening to my thoughts and opinion on what Maycomb County is doing wrong and what they could do to make it right.
Jem finch does the impossible

He hit 15 three pointers and one full court buzzer beater to win the game in the final seconds. Jem was with his Splash bro Cecil Jacobs who hit 10 three pointers and dunked 5 times. He too hit a half court buzzer beater at the end of the second quarter. The Dead-Eyes were playing the number 1 ranked in the world Oilers. The Oilers were undefeated until this point. They couldn’t stop Jem Finch’s and Cecil Jacob’s dynamic duo. This definitely shocked the world and this moment will never be forgotten.
“I just threw it up there and hoped for the best”, Mr. Finch said, “I never imagined being the top team in the world, I never could have done it without the team and especially Cecil Jacobs.
