INTERNATIONAL NEWS Can England be bigger?

Yesterday King Alfred Justinian died. The death of King Alfred V , the king of Romonalia , means happy news for Arthur´s knights. During many years King Arthur has wanted to conquer Romonalia, but King Alfred resisted the siege from the Englishmen. Right now Romonalia is very unstable, there are riots all through the kingdom, and this is good news for Arthur and Camelot. Next week King Arthur and his knights will go to Romonalia to conquer it. King Arthur bought weapons and swords from Castile last month. Sir. Malagant has agreed to a truce with Camelot to fight together in the war against the Romonians. Sir Malagant has mobilized all his army to Camelot. People were scared but the army didn´t want to kill them ,they wanted to help them in the war. The Ottoman empire is in Romonalia fighting to invade it. The army of the ottomans is stronger than our army but our army is more intelligent than theirs. Merlin, the Royal Counselor is levying new soldiers to fight in the war. If you are older than 20 and you want to help your country, go to Merlin’s palace and talk to him to sign up.

Sir. Fay Morsa

Religion •Pope Patrick II died and his friend is the favourite candidate for this job.

•Cathedral in need of repairing

The Pope ,Patrick II died yesterday because he was very old. His friend George is the favourite candidate for this job because Pope Patrick left a note on his bed.

It said this: “I want that my friend George becomes Camelot’s Pope.” All the priests have met at Pendragon´s church to choose one among the candidates for the new Pope

These are the potential candidates for Pope´s position:

George, the deceased Pope’s friend, Frank son of the blacksmith of the city, Mr. Smith,

and Richard, son of the woodcutter Mr. Strand. Other favorites to become Pontificex are: Mr. Stand, Steve, Roger, Charles, and Anthony .

The decision will be ready within a week. Desperate people expect they elect the new pope as soon as possible. The only thing we have been told is that the new Pontificex will supervise the construction of a new basilica for the most disadvantaged sections of society, named after the kindest Pope Camelot has ever had: Patrick II.

Cracks in Cathedral

the

The Cathedral of the Castle needs a reform because the buttresses are badly cracked. The mass today was cancelled and the meeting to appoint a new Pontificex is in danger.

SPORTS Arthur Tournament

The derby

The final of the tournament it is going to be celebrated next saturday in Old Camelot Stadium. The match begins at 12 o´clock . Rain and dragon storms are expected, but Merlin, the wizard, cast a spell in all the stadium. This spell waterproofs the stadium, we hope that this spell works. The two finalists are Sir. Flinstone, son of Sir. Charles, and Sir. Peter, son of Sir Leo. Sir Peter is from Camelot and Sir Finstone is from Ot Noor. The match will be really bitter; the two opponents are ready for the duel. In the last match between them the winner was Sir Flinstone, so that Flinstone is the favourite to win. The spears that they will use in the tournament are made by Jule the smith. Sir. Flinstone´s armour was made it in Persia by Mohammed a famous smith. Sir Peter is going to ride an Arab horse and Sir. Flinstone an Irish horse. The cost of the ticket is round 30 Arthuvians. If you want to buy any ticket go to 8 Fenerbache Street.

Sir Joel Teenager

Next Thursday the derby, the match between Camelot U.D and Black Castle C.F, will be played. The Match will be played in Alfred I Stadium. The teams are tied in points on the table. Tomorrow morning Merlin will do the doping test to the teams. Last Saturday Marlin discovered that members of SwordStone U.D had drunk the Dragon Eye potion, so the team was disqualified. The ball of the match has been sewn by the Royal Sewer, Sir. John Mantecato.Yesterday the sewer said “This ball is the best ball in the world”. Camelot U.D is going to dress in white and red t-shit and black shorts. The favourite to win is Camelot U.D because it is in a better physical condition than Black Castle C.F. We hope that Camelot wins because if they win, they can be the winners of the league.

HEALTH

Two days ago, we heard that the famous doctor, Clevis, wrote a letter about the very difficult situation there exists these days. No one knew what this letter was about, and many people were very worried. But today, we have this letter, and we want to share it with you:

Dear reader: My name is Clevis, I am a doctor. I don´t know if you have heard about the plague. This is probably the worst disease we have never been through. And the problem is that this horrible disease is coming to Camelot. Other countries have been affected. Many people have died in those countries because no one knows a cure. Last month, a man went to my house. He begged to me. He always said that he needed my help, he needed a cure. But, supposedly I couldn´t help him. The man left my house, and I don´t know anything about him. He is probably dead. I am explaining this, because if that man was contaminated with the plague… when will we be contaminated with this disease? This is a very serious fact. I have a friend who lives in a faraway country. Last Monday, he came to my house. He walked many kilometers to go to my house. He told me that in his country many people have died, many people are very ill. They are contaminated with the plague. He needs a safe place to live and now he is living in our country. I am worried, I don´t know when I can get contaminated. I only know, that if this disease comes to Camelot, many people can die. That is why, if some member of your family is contaminated, don´t spend much time with him, you can die like him. Good luck, and be strong. J.CLEVIS,MD.

Well, this was the letter. I am very worried, and you? I wish that his disease doesn´t come to Camelot. Please, you must be strong. If this disease comes to Camelot…I sure that I am going to fight for my life. We must be brave. Remember, nothing is impossible.

The countess Eleanor claims that she saw a big ogre in the peak of the Rockwood Mountain last Thursday, when she was looking with her binoculars. She is very scared, so she will reward the man who hunts this horrible ogre. Helot, a very famous hunter who lives near that mountain, has said that he saw an ogre, too, but he claim that she mustn’t be worried, he will hunt it.

Many people who live around the castle claim that last Friday a carriage went out of the castle. They could see a beautiful woman inside it. Is she the handsome lord´s new conquest? Merlin, the magician has said that the next Tuesday, at 5 o´clock p.m., a set of lightning will fall in Camelot; it will be the Gods´ punishment. He thinks that the Gods are very angry with us, because we have contaminated their lands. Many people say that last Friday there was a secret ceremony in the castle. King Alfred died, that we all know; but the question is: How did he die? Was it a simple death? Or was King Alfred assassinated? There are people who think that King Alfred was assassinated. Supposedly, Lord Cinyon wants to be Lady Hummer´s husband. An anonymous has told us that he proposed two days ago, and she said ”Yes, I want to be your wife” The Pope died, and now some people have to decide who will be the next Pope. There are many rumors about the Pope´s friend. These rumors say that his friend will be the next Pope.
