The Halloween Pageant
Two kids from Maycomb county were attacked on Halloween night. Jeremy and Jean Louise Finch were walking home in an empty field on October 31, 1932. They were on their way home from the Halloween pageant. Bob Ewell was hiding in the trees and then attacked the kids. They kept fighting and tried to run home but Bob had a knife and he tried to stab them. Jean Louise had her ham costume on still so when Bob tried and stabbed her it just went into her costume not her actual body. Jem now had a broken arm and scrapes on his face and was unconscious. Jem said, "I was so frightened but I had to keep my little sister safe." Jem is very protective of his sister but she didn't think he actually could hear stuff because Scout said, "Jem stop scaring me this isn't funny!"

Tim Johnson, Rabid dog loose in Maycomb
Calpurnia, Finch nanny was walking outside the morning of September 3, 1992. Calpurnia noticed in the distance on their street Tim Johnson foaming in the mouth and running at them. Calpurnia said, " I was so scared, i needed to make sure to keep the children safe so I called Atticus Finch." Atticus Shows up minutes later to save the day. Atticus said," I haven't shot a gun in so many years I was little worried i would miss." Finch then shot Tim Johnson right in the head, he dropped right away. Maycomb would like to thank Finch for such a herotic act! Hopefully Maycomb doesn't have anymore rabid dogs for awhile, If you do end up seeing one please call Atticus finch!

Dear Maycomb school,
Hello school, its Scout Finch and I'm just letting you know how mad I am about you guys not letting me learn to read at school! Just because I am young doesn't mean that you guys can say that I cant learn to read yet. I just want to become smart and a great person just like my dad. School is for learning so I just want to know why. I would like you guys to mail me back with all your reasons why you aren't letting me read at a school just because of my age. If someone wants to learn stuff when they are young you should let them so they can get ahead in life. Well thanks for reading my letter but sorry I was complaining so much but it just doesn't make since to me. Have a great day
Sincerely, Scout Finch
Letter to the Editor
This is Helen Robinson wife of Tom Robinson, I'm very disappointed in the people of this town. The people of this today let a innocent man die. Black people are being killed everyday due to white people just killing them off. Black folks don't fair rights compared to whites. We need to change up this court system and let blacks on the jury maybe blacks and whites will be closer to having equal rights. Also blacks don't have it easy when trying to find a job. I've been trying to get a job to be able to put food on the table for my family. There soon needs to be some big changes in this community.
Sincerely, Helen Robinson
