The Story The Apocalypse has seemingly fell on Decatur as a record turnout occurs to discuss the open/closed campus issue for DHS.  One of the speakers was DHS Junior class president Matt Haile who said, "The nutrients that you reap from cafeteria food don't get you [cross country] state championship rings like this one."
News worthiness (on a scale of 0 to 5) **
The Spin Little did we know that Big Macs, Double Cheese Pizzas, and Burrito Supremes were endurance running enhancers.

The Story The first candidate forum occurred at the Chico Chamber of Commerce. "The first issue brought up was the question of allowing private citizens to have roads paved for less than the county's contracted rated, especially in Precinct 4."

The Spin The second question was, "How long will this thing last because I'm bored out of my freakin' mind."

The Spin Insufficient evidence led to the release of Tony Kempf who had been charged with murder. "According to Sheriff David Walker, Kempf was arguing with Marshall Roper . . . when Roper pulled out a small caliber revolver and shot at Kempt, grazing his head. Walker said that Kempf wrestled the gun away from Roper and shot him in the head."
