Girl in Shock After Startled by Spider

On August 3, 2006, Little Miss Muffet was sitting under the old tree in Marcus Phil Park one afternoon eating her curds and way. A spider came down from the tree and sat on Muffet’s shoulder. Miss Muffet was so startled she fell off her tuffet and fell into a deep daze. She then got up, thinking the spider was on her. After she went into her daze, she fell on the spider and squished it. After she got the imaginary spider off her, she ran down to a market where Three Blind Mice were working. She busted through the door and bolted to the desk and asked where she was. Before the Blind Mice could answer she was already out the door. Then the Blind Mice called the police and the ambulance. After arriving to the shop and looking for Miss Muffet, they found her in the public outhouse. She was then rushed to the hospital because she was found with a concussion and a broken leg.

Do you miss “The King of Pop” just as much as the rest of America? Here are 11 facts all about Mr. Michael Jackson, his career, and so much more.

As most of you know Michael Jackson was in a group with his siblings called “The Jackson 5.” Michael Jackson, after years of experience with his siblings, he went solo because he was the lead singer of the group and felt like he was doing all the work. As most know, Michael has had one surgery which was in 1979 because he fell on his face. Some say Michael also got the surgery because as a child his father would make fun of the way his nose looked. R. Kelly and Quincy Jones wrote the majority of his lyrics. Michael Jackson was born in Gary, Indiana on August 29, 1958. Michael died on June 25, 2009. Michael’s best selling song was Thriller. He had three kids named Prince Michael Jackson the second, Michael Joseph Jackso, Jr., and Paris-Michael Katherine Jackson.


Michael has definitely left his mark on Earth and it is tragic to think he is gone. His music will be remembered along with his spirit. Rest in Paradise.

School Uniforms? NO!

By: Maddie Jane Neal
There are many schools debating to have school uniforms. Personally I think school uniforms are a disgrace. They hold kids back from expressing themselves in what they wear. That would just be taking away another privilege that we have. I also think school uniforms are very ugly and look terrible! They don’t let kids show their personality. Some kids don’t like wearing what everyone else does, like it’s too mainstream. School uniforms also cost more, not everyone has enough money for regular clothes.
