MASS SLAUGHTER OF NATIVE INHABITANTS[edition 1 reference 1]
Appalled! Shocked! Disgusted!
This is how most normal people would feel when faced with the idea of slaughtering
countless native inhabitants to make the lives of a small population of invaders a little bit easier.
Not so for a small group of murderous thugs that recently made a mass slaughter of the native inhabitants known as 'villagers'.
It is known that this small group of as yet unidentified bandits set several hundred villagers on fire and then proceeded to chase down the fleeing people into the arms of waiting zombies who swore to raise them as their own kind, away from the murderers.
RECORD SELLING DAYS[edition 1 reference 2]
The newly opened packed ice shoppe in New Hermiton sold old of it's product in the first day. Such shortages make it seem that the owner grossly underestimated his market. No comment has been made.
FOOD DISTRIBUTORS' DIRTY TRICKS![edition 1 reference 3]
Amid the hype surrounding the new town shopping district it seems that certain company owners have engaged in a dirty tricks campaign to squash rivals.
Actions include theft
of property and obscuring advertisement.

FUNGAL INFESTATION AT MUSE MEATS![edition 2 reference 1]
Reports have been recieved that a fungal infestation has occured at Muse Meats (A division of SpumCo) and has contaminated their produce.
The owner of SpumCo made a statement to this reporter that "it poses a health risk to future customers."
"The food wars" is a term coined by Spumwack to describe his unethical treatment of neighbouring businesses. It is suspected that
this infestation was retaliation by other food business owners and Spumwack has decided to point fingers at soup shop owner iJevin as a suspect. Perhaps as a way to disguise his own poor manufacturing decisions.

WONDERFUL NEW SHOPPING EXPERIENCE![edition 2 reference 3]
It was this reporters pleasure to be one of the first to experience a retail haven that can be found at Hypno's Random Item shop. Simple on the outside, a tribute to the fallen villagers of last week perhaps, Hypno has
created a store that whilst not specialised seems to capture every facet of what a Hermit truely needs all at great prices!
The business district is booming and this store is set to make it's mark!
MURDER AT QUARTER-PIPE POINT![edition 2 reference 4]
A massive explosion rocked the city of New Hermiton and one dead body was pulled from the wreackage. Pungence later swore vengeance on Skyzm, possibly involving Ninja Turtles. The lawless nature of this town
was noted by Xisuma who swore to consider doing something about it.
Bodyguard prices are rocketing in response.

There is a current lull in the criminal activity of our lovely town of New Hermiton. Yet an undercurrent of disatisfaction as people crave justice for the wrongs they have suffered.
The new courthouse
in the business district has been designed to dispense swift justice to those wronged. It is as yet unknown how people will access the new courthouse or who will be the judge.
Several Hermits are already claiming to be lawyers. This reporter would like
to remind people that, whilst it is true what they say about newspaper reporters, it is also true what they say about lawyers.
Are you TIRED of easting DRY, FLAKEY bread, MOLDY soup or INADEQUATE PUMPKIN PIES?
Stop by Muse meats for a rad, happenin', totally hip steak which will have your mouth saying OH EM GEE!
A car dealership has put plans into the townhall and word has it that it will cover a great deal of green belt land. Is our town ready for drivers? Can we even agree on what side of the pavement to drive? Several new laws will
have to be passed, a test for our newly implimented legal system.
The Hermiton Herald.
