Disgruntled Students Wreak Havoc For East High Principle

Ten upperclassmen have been suspended for one week at East High.  According to the students, they were protesting the Monday suspension of five of their other classmates.  The five students were caught smoking marijuana in the school parking lot.  In addition to the suspensions, the fire alarm sounded three times last Wednesday, and there was a food fight that closed the cafeteria on Tuesday.

Principle Laura Vibelius had this to say in response to the general unrest. “Not so much unrest because of the suspensions, but because of summer vacations being so near.” Laura also stated that she sees no continuation of these “incidents” in the near future.

Gasoline Truck Floods Two Blocks

A report from the police claims that a Texaco gasoline truck has caused gas to flood the sewer lines for two blocks.  The truck reportedly overturned on the outskirts of town around 48th street and Correctionville Road.  The gas also reached the streets and ditches causing cars to be rerouted through side streets.

The gas flood was serious for two hours, and due to the sewer-line gas, four families evacuated until gas flushed away.  Fire Chief Charles Hochandel said, “The firemen followed catastrophe and hazmat procedures set up before hand for just an occurrence.”
