Atticus Finch accused of favouring African Americans
Crime lawyer becomes black lover
Miss Stephanie Crawford made a statement regarding this event. "Well, Atticus comes from a respectable family. His daddy built a good life for his children and I don't think he'll appreciate what Mr.Finch is doing. And the man has two young ins. What will they learn from this?".
We had also spoke to Miss Maudie Atkinson but she refused to say very much. " What that man does is his business. Atticus is doing his job". Some disagree as Atticus is turning his back on his people and the town.
As the date of the trial nears, we'll gather information as best we can and give daily updates to keep everyone informed.
Widow's house burns to the ground
The avid gardener stated that the source of the blaze was the fireplace she had left burning throughout the night. "I had to keep my flowers warm. As the weather is getting colder, I feared for my plants. They would die if I never took them inside".
Three fire trucks were called to the scene, two coming from outside the county. The Abbotsville truck and the Clark's Ferry truck from sixty miles away.
As of now, Miss Maudie is staying with good friend, Miss Stephanie Crawford.
Town dog becomes a deadly mutt
Their maid, Calpurnia, contacted Mr.Finch immediately and kept the two indoors. Mr.Tate was called in to take care of the situation.
After a brief tussle with Atticus Finch, the gun was passed to the lawyer. As expected, Mr.Finch took care of the problem and shot down the mutt.
Our deepest condolences to Mr.Harry Jonhson. Losing a dog is like losing friend.
