  1. Take To The Streets By: Henry Jones Jr. 10/3/18, 5 PM: "Let the people draw and scribble on the walls of our great city to show others of the world a symbol of a culture." . This was said by Raj Pitt, the mayor of Dargen Bluff, this morning as the first annual Day of the Street. The Day of the Street is a day where people are given chalk and are allowed to make graffiti with the chalk without being arrested for vandalism. This day was thought up by the mayor when he was on a walk and saw some graffiti on a wall and thought quote "This is the most beautiful piece of art I have ever seen". Later the next day he declared today the Day of the Street, after what he thought brought inspiration to the artist. After this was announced people started to prepare for this for unbridled creativity, local arts and craft shops were stripped from chalk, pastels and oil paints. This day has also brought worry to law enforcement as represented by this quote by the chief of police for the city "This is going to be a disaster, how are we going to know when people are using materials that will be washed away from the rain, we are police not artists." We will bring more news on the event after it's conclusion. Pictures of the art

  4. Massacre At Holy Oaks High School By: Jose Hernandez 7/28/2018, 8 AM: Today the country is in a state of mourning. Yesterday at 11 AM in the town of Holy Oak, a former student of the school Tim Harenger, age 15, came into his school with a automatic rifle and proceeded to open fire and kill 27 students and seriously injured 13. The massacre ended when Tim was shot in the arm and taken into custody by local SWAT officers. From the information the BCN was able to obtain from the police and multiple of the students of the school Tim was a schizophrenic and social recluse and often posted pictures on social media of him posing with guns. Now in the town the community are lighting candles to commemorate the people killed in the shooting and are planing a rally for more funding for mental health research. The government has also issued condolences to the family of those who have been killed in the massacre. (People burning candles in Holy Oaks)
  5. Let There Be Smoke Says Industry By:Jake Elam 7/5/2018, 4 PM: "Today is a new day" states Paul Henderson after the legislation to institute a more strict pollution agency to replace the PCA (Pollution Control Agency) passed today. This legislation was put into the system because of the rise of corporations finding loopholes within the old PCA standards, the hope with this new agency is to create a more better funded and iron tight way to control pollution from the many industry of Bergistan. The NEPA (National Environmental & Pollution Agency) will be the new name of this new agency and it will take 6 months to convert the PCA into the NEPA. The Industry in Bergistan are taking advantage of this time of converting and looser regulation by releasing more pollution. "we might as well do it while we have the chance" say Eugene Silvermen, the known owner of the Larshek Electronics Corporation. After this statement we were able to reach Mr. Silvermen for a interview. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Reporter: "Do you have some time for a interview Mr. Silvermen" Silvermen: "I don't see why not" Reporter: "Why did you think it was necessary to make such a bold reason for your company's increased pollution" Silvermen: "It's this country and all of its goddamned regulation. Its kicking the sh*t out of the industry" Reporter: "How so" Silvermen: "It's by these yuppies complaining about too much smoke, whaat about the envirroment, WHAT ABOUT TEH f*ckING TREES. THEN WE HONEST INDUSTRY FOLK NEED TO ABIDE BY SPENDING ABSORBENT AMOUNTS OF MONEY TO STOP SOME MEASLY SMOKE AND OTHER WHATSITS" Reporter: " But what about the global warming that the pollution will cause" Silvermen: " Oh can't handle a little heat you yuppies" Reporter: "Thank you for your Time"

  7. The Free Land Of Bergistan Etymology The name Bergistan comes from the name of the first king of Bergistan Dik Van Der Berg Geography Bergistan is a country that is filled with rivers and forests, but most of the forests were cut down in the past to make room for urban development leaving mostly flatlands filled with grass and small shrubs.
