Northland offers to annex the United States to bring true unity in this time of crisis. “While America is in chaos, the North stands united. We could join together to make the Great White North.”
Northland stresses that this is an offer, not a takeover.

End of Game - Northland Editor - 4:56 pm

Despite all the zombies and fires in London, they were regaining control of the city.  The mayor proudly fought on the front lines the entire game, killing zombies, civilians, putting out bad fires and starting good ones.

Niagara ended the game without ever reaching mass panic, in complete control of the city.

Northland effectively dealt with refugees with enormous camps in Toronto and Cornwall, and sent good reinforcements to Adirondack but never heard back.  Our planes went North to shoot down the nuclear Russian bombers, but the game ended before we heard what happened.

Are cures being traded for votes? - Adirondack Political News - 4:51 pm

Rumours have reached the Badger News that in certain cities cures, are only being distributed to people in exchange for votes.

When questioned about this, however, authorities denied the practice and stress that cures are being distributed in function of the city’s requirements and the distribution possibilities.

Let’s hope this rumour is indeed false. This would otherwise be a new low.

Big Business Bombs Marquette - Mishigamaa Editor - 4:51 pm

A quick statement from a LexCorp representative say that they have developed a custom “Zombie Choke Bomb” over a large portion of Romero City, in conjunction with the National Guard.

Voter suppression in Ahao - Ahao - Naomi Young - 4:50 pm

AHAO: I can confirm that no differently animated citizens have been allowed to vote in Ahao. This is blatant voter suppression. The 15th Amendment clearly states that the right to vote cannot be denied for race or color. This is also clearly discrimination against Americans with disabilities. A differently animated source in Dayton confirmed this and said it was clear discrimination against the undead.

However he has been quoted on his presidential candidate saying that “it is taking the piss considering [Osa governed] the state where the infection started.”

As previously reported, national media has learned of allegations that the DHS and the Pentagon told the Mishigamaa National Guard to arrest the Governor of Mishigamaa.

Since then, we have learned of far more disturbing developments.

In particular, the White House and the Secretary of Defense gave written orders for the Pentagon to coordinate with the Mishigamaa National Guard to illegally act in Mishigamaa.

According to our sources, it was the Pentagon (and not the Mishigamaa National Guard) that determined that such actions were illegal.

Given that there is written proof that the President gave authority for the Pentagon to act in Mishigamaa, it is now only a question of when (rather than if) the President and her Secretary of Defense are arrested and charge with high crimes and misdemeanours.

UPDATE – Insurrection by local police in Albany - Adirondack Editor - 4:38 pm

According to a statement from the newly appointed Chief of Police in Albany the “insurrection” is nothing more than a misunderstanding.

Badger News can only conclude it is still unclear who is really in charge in our State Capital and if the Governor is still acting in the people’s best interest?

Meanwhile the Governor, City Council and your Badger News reporters are still barricaded inside the State House.

End of Crisis Presidential Bid? - Wabash Editor - 4:29 pm

In this time of political and humanitarian turmoil, the Governor of Wabash has announced a bid for the Republican Presidential Nomination, with the Vice-Governor acting as his running mate.

It appears that despite their illegal arrest scandals, and subsequent exoneration by the President, that the pair believe they have produced a strong response to the Wabashian Crisis and hope to come out the end of this with whatever mandate they can achieve.

The actions of the President have shown faith in the pair, and this support should bolster their bid. The Bloodhound will wait and see.

DHS and Pentagon Illegally Ordered Arrest of Mishigamaa Governor - National Reporter B - 4:27 pm

The national media has learned that the DHS and the Pentagon previously told the National Guard of Mishigamaa to arrest the Governor of Misghigamaa. DHS and the Pentagon attempted to convince the National Guard that the Governor was unstable and not fit to govern.

The National Guard subsequently determined that such orders were both illegal and immoral. They consequently refused to comply with such order.

It is unclear at this time whether the order was due to the fact that the Mishigamaa Governor is currently running for president and does not appear to be favored by the White House.

This leads to the question of whether the White House has taken advantage of the crisis to further its own political agenda over the well being of American citizens.

Editorial – Politics, really? - Adirondack Political News - 4:16 pm

In the past hours, Badger News has received a press statement from Governor Deurinck that he intends to run as vice-president to our neighbouring state’s Governor, Mr. Verbeek.

Really, this is what he has been doing these past days? Wondering who he should run with for the preliminaries?

As already highlighted in our previous editorial, one can only wonder what the people in charge are thinking. They are putting their own personal ambitions ahead of the safety of the people.

This can clearly not continue like this. We strongly urge our leaders to look deep and hard within themselves and come to their senses.

Badger News will not spend any more ink on the political ambitions of our leaders as long as the crisis is not solved.

We strongly urge our leaders to come to their senses and get their priorities right!

In Its Hour of Panic White House Hides from Press and Public - National Reporter B - 4:12 pm

In the midst of an ongoing crisis where transparent leadership from the White House is more important than ever, the President and her support staff have become increasingly paranoid about the role of the press. On numerous occasions when asked for comment on various aspects of the situation, the President has stated either, “No comment” or “We are dealing with it” with no further explanation.

The unwillingness of this administration to inform the public what is being done to stem the tide of bloodshed and chaos is a cause for grave concern.  This great country has always depended in significant part on the role of a free press to inform the public and keep tyranny in check. This is the why our Founding Fathers enshrined the rights of a free press in the First Amendment. For as long as the White House continues to refuse to provide substantive comment and input to the press, it is clear that the administration values its political reputation more than the most important values of our nation.

Homeland Security has informed national media that they have developed a cure and have developed two delivery methods: aerosol and darts.

And amidst this our politicians seek to maintain to claw what little power there is remaining into their own rapacious hands.

As we said, flee the state, seek safety.

Why Armed Forces took so long - Powhatan Editor - 3:51 pm

The armed forces have been a great since they arrived taking down the zombies but a lot of needless destruction could have been avoided if they came sooner but what took them so long part of it was because Governor Jon took a while to declare a state of emergency.

We have been quite open in our support for the political leaders as they struggle to get a grip of they’re individual cities, the Police and the Emergency Services have our highest praise for limiting the body count within our great State.

But one thing just doesnt taste right….

The Mayor of Racine has been the star of the show today remaining calm under the pressure, maybe too calm? the emergency Racine faced was very different from the emergency every other city faced and as the other cities burned to the ground the Mayor of Racine began his plot to overthrow the Mayor of Kenosha. Plot maybe a bit strong? lets face it, Kenosha was handed to him. it seems the outbreak has benefited some people?

As others crumble Racine are throwing parties and celebrations.

Maybe they were never in danger?

CEO of the Necrotech made a public statement celebrating the collaboration of the Mayor and Racine city.

Would it not be in Necrotechs interest to protect Racine, especially as Racine is the location and home of theyre forefront research facility.

We have also heard from good sources Necrotech senior officials being evacuated from neighboring cities well before the outbreak had even taken hold, before there was ever a sniff of a problem.

Was this whole thing, this disaster a test? a power grab?

Who is the most likely to run this state beyond this disaster than the unflappable James Wiggins?

All we know as of now is that Necrotech and Racine have a lot of questions to answer.

Big four pharmas fighting over a cure - National Reporter A - 3:29 pm

Whilst Nutrivend had been singled out as the exclusive partner of the White House earlier, it now appears that the big four pharmas – Weygand, Necrotech, Lexcorp and Nutrivend are now going head to head against each other to be the first to identify the cause and cure for the zombification phenomenon.

Necrotech is currently appealing for additional resources to fund its ongoing research and development, and the other two pharmas have not replied to our requests for an interview by press time.

On the one hand we have Governor Duerinck communicating about trying to recapture the city of Albany. On the other hand the mayor of Albany is telling us that they plan to evacuate all citizens from the city, while trying to keep all Ombies inside to eradicate them.

It is not clear to Badger News what the real plans are, but one thing is clear: there is no clear collaboration between the two parties.

As Badger News is being relocated, we can only see that authorities are struggling to control the situation. If on top of that there is infighting between the different persons in charge, the population is further at risk.

We ask one thing from the people in charge: do your job, keep people safe.

No progress towards a cure in Ahao - Ahao - Naomi Young - 3:16 pm

Rumors are rife in Toledo that Dayton have developed a cure and are not sharing it. Dayton strongly deny this, they are doing everything they can to assist in research towards a cure, however research is ongoing and the mayor guaranteed that any cure would be shared state-wide and wanted to re-iterate as the only city not yet to declare a state of emergency, that they are the safest place in the state, especially considering they have introduced an additive to the water to combat the disease.

The chief of emergency services of Fresnadillo stated that “There is no progress as the university is full of thick people”

Cleveland stated that there is “good evidence” that the Cleveland Creme Donut makes a difference in prevention, meanwhile Cincinatti have passed on all information regarding the disease.

The statement from Homeland Security was less hopeful for the great state of Ahao, as they stated all cure research was being done by Corporations, of which, Ahao have none.

Heroes of Richmond - Wabash Editor - 3:15 pm

Valiant efforts have been made by the ex Mayor of Richmond, now Vice Governor, in repelling the Zombie infestation, and strident measures are being taken to bolster the defence of Richmond and drive the horde back.

A commitment of £25 million has been made towards frontline efforts to clear out Richmond city, with a message from the Vice Governor stating “We have committed in full and will continue to do so.”

This Firewall has been described as “appearing to work” by Becky Rose, Chief of the Emergency Services.

In a strong move, Special Ops have also been deployed throughout Richmond and airstrikes have been conducted to halt the Zombie Horde, a move condoned by the new Vice Governor.

According to our source, the Secretary of State then stated, “We are waiting passively for things to happen.”

In the face of overwhelming casualties, this publication is concerned just how many more “things” need to happen before the Secretary of State takes action.

Situation escalating in Dayton? - Ahao - Naomi Young - 2:49 pm

DAYTON, AHAO: Widespread reports of looting in Dayton are being met in with a statement that it is not necessary. Bottled water is being distributed at fortified buildings.

The white house have threatened to commit an unauthorized action into the city. Dayton have not declared a stated of emergency and so any such action would be attack on the Third Amendment.

However, the mayor has been involved with capture of a zombie citizen, which is a clear violation of the the Sixth and Seventh amendments, and they are boasting about experimentation on this “level 2”.

Dayton are issuing press releases stating they are the safest place in Ahao, but be very careful, if you are sick, Dayton is not a place you will be treated fairly.

A highly unusual news article today. The Mayor of Marquette has just officially requested additional state and federal funding due to the 40,000 additional citizens that have appeared in the city over the last few days.

Official statement from Homeland Security states that they are:

  • work is progressing quickly towards this aim but we urge citizens to remain calm
  • continuing to follow all leads to investigate the source of the outbreak

When questioned about this further, the Press Liaison Officer was not at liberty to say why the Federal line has not changed since the initial outbreak.

But as Homeland Security says… “don’t panic”

Communication from Albany mayor to all - Adirondack Editor - 2:35 pm

Badger News has received the following communication from the mayor of Albany:

PSA: Emergency Council meeting organisation

This is a notice intended for all political bodies in the state of
Adirondack:

The Governor has requested an emergency council to organise the
counter-Ombie efforts in the state. Due to continued concerns about the
health (and a possible infection) of the Governor, the Mayor of Albany is
organising an emergency council meeting by telephone. All invited parties
will receive the necessary information to join the council meeting.

The Mayor of Albany continues to care for everyone’s safety and health, and
by preventing travel and possible exposure to infection, state governing
bodies can continue functioning effectively.

We do not know if there are clear indications of the Governor’s infection or not, but it is strange in such a time of crisis to request all mayor political players to be present in person in a city overrun by Ombies.

Romero City – A tale of two political parties - National Reporter A - 2:30 pm

The citizens of Romero City will be given VR headsets in what seems to be a bid to blind them to zombie attacks and questionable political campaigns.

Along with the announcement of free VR headsets, the Republican state governor, Maria Osa, has announced her candidacy for President.  In an interesting twist of political fate, her candidacy is supported by Pollyana, the Democratic Romerean city mayor.  This would be America’s first cross-party liaison for Presidency.

When questioned if this was the right time for the State to be spending funding on VR headsets, the representatives from Romero City remained adamant that this was the right thing to do, as the VR headsets seek to ‘educate the public’ about calm in the current state of turmoil.

The result of the liaison between Democrats and Republicans remain to be seen, as that between VR headsets and zombie attacks.

Wabash Governor Arrested - Wabash Editor - 2:30 pm

In tandem to the organised coup by the Wabash Mayor’s Coalition, the National Guard has been authorised to arrest the State Governor but, to the Bloodhound’s knowledge, no charges have yet been announced. The formerly incarcerated Deputy Governor has now assumed the role of Governor after no charges were filed; some have claimed his ascension to be illegitimate in the wake of scandal, and a need for political stability is required.

An announcement from the President has declared the arrest of the Governor to be illegal and has urged the new Governor to open up an urgent line of communication with the Presidential Office.

The previous Governor had arranged for Special Forces and Air Squadrons to be brought in under the President’s purveyance, and the Presidential Office has stated that these forces are contingent on the immediate line of communication.

The Free Militia have captured Waygand Corp HQ. On interrogating their records they have found evidence that their lab in Bay City was the originator of the outbreak and that they had been working with the Federal Government.

This links in with previous reports that a LexCorp facility in Bay City could be the source, which was being investigated by local police forces, and observations that the State Government abandoned Bay City to the hordes very early on, rumoured to be a coverup for their corporate dealings.

The Governor denies this, and claims that National Guard deployment were unable to get into the city to assist. As a result, they had to quarantine the city.

More on this story as it develops.

Mishigamaa State Police response to outbreak - Mishigamaa Editor - 1:48 pm

For The Whole Of America… except Cincinnatti? - Ahao "Wee" Ken D'edition - 1:42 pm

Do Governor Hollman’s actions during the crisis indicate a lack of concern for Ahao’s second city?

By hesitating to act decisively in declaring a state-wide State of Emergency, has Governor Hollman endangered the lives of citizens? Or worse?

A senior source within Cincinnatti PD believes that the lack of state and national resources deployed in the city is part of a deliberate plan involving the Governor to harm Mayor Raymond, Hollman’s main political opponent in Ahao.

As I write this, news reaches me that the governor’s office is instructing citizens to drink only bottled water supplied by the National Guard. Does this, perhaps, form part of a sinister plot to influence the citizens of this fine state – this fine country – by nefarious means?  Couple this with the seizing of ammunition and erosion of Second Amendment rights and the picture of opportunism and power grabs by the elected officials in whom we have placed our trust becomes extremely compelling.

BREAKING: WABASH HAS FALLEN - National Reporter A - 1:35 pm

ERRATA- We would like to apologise for referring to the state of Wabash incorrectly as ‘Boyle’, as we were quoting verbatim from the President (who apparently had a ‘covfefe’ moment, bless her)

BREAKING NEWS: The city of Wabash has fallen to the ‘infectious disease’ that has been sweeping America.  The President has expressed that her thoughts are with the city, but does not see the need to declare a state of emergency just yet.

Governors of cities overrun by infection are urged to reach out to the Federal Government to request for aid.  The President made reference to cities who have previously showed resistance to federal aid, and continued that Governors and the Federal Government should be on a two-way street as the Federal Government will not be able to provide aid effectively if information is not volunteered to the Government in the first instance.

The President continued that the Government desperately needs more information to “understand the situation”, but assured this paper that the Federal Government is prepared and adequately supplied to extend aid to cities upon request.

When pressed further, the President refused to comment on the the two captured specimens.  However, from a separate conversation this paper had with FEMA, we understand FEMA is reaching out for help from corporations to aid the Government in its time of need, with regard research on the captured specimens.  The President is, however, still debating if the famed 4th July Picnic on the Gardens should still go on.

The conversation with the President and FEMA underscores the current state of turmoil within the White House, as lack of information and panic permeates through each level of the Administration.

God bless America.

Mishigamaa the State of Science or impending doom? - Mishigamaa Editor - 12:29 pm

Mishigamaa has recently seen a large investment by several Corporations including a new Hospital and Laboratory in Marquette by the Nutrivend Corporation. This significant investment in the area has been hailed as a triumph by the local mayor and the state governor who is currently electioneering for the Republicans for the upcoming election and will obviously feel that this will be a boost for her campaign. Some sources have suggested that some public money or other concessions have been made to encourage such a large investment in the area however this has been denied by officials. Meanwhile LEXCORP are currently developing several exciting new chemical and biological technologies. LEXCORP have stated that it develops “Weapons for Protection not offence”. Officials from the Corporation state that low cost but high quality medicines will be flooding the market as part of a strategy to undercut competition.

With all this recent investment in the state and specially in the Marquette area questions must be asked as to the motives behind this investment. At the end of the day Corporations are not charities and the bottom line is always the end goal. One wonders whether the strange incidents that have been occurring across the state can be linked to this influx of Corporate investment. As ever we will be keeping an eye and ear on events and will keep our readership informed.

People of Shawnee: Governor Firefly - Shawnee Editor - 12:06 pm

Governor Firefly has a difficult job. Being a republican governor in a majority democrat state you would think she would struggle with the pressure. However, when our roving reporter Alex Montrose came to interview her for our feature, he found her surprisingly cavalier

When pushed on funding matters, she promises to increase funding on the National Guard. “I will make America great again.” – Not that she sees eye to eye with our President on all topics. “I disagree with many things that Trump says and does.”

One thing the Governor is dedicated to is festivities. She wants a military parade for this year’s July 4th party, and is willing to waste public money to make this happen. Truly and inspirational leader

Binghampton mayor present on-site of zombie outbreak - Adirondack Editor - 12:06 pm

Several outbreaks of the so-called zombie virus VAC have been confirmed in Binghampton.

The police is currently “taking care of it”. One police officer has been injured. He is being treated in a New Amsterdam hospital in the framework of healthcare collaboration offered by New Amsterdam Chief of Police candidate for the office of Mayor Kris van Beurden and Chief of Emergency Services Koenraad Kegels.

Furthermore, Binghampton Mayor and Chief of Emergency Service are currently present ON-SITE of the zombie outbreak to support the emergency services! This action could be called heroic, dangerous and/or stupid. It may even contribute to a further spreading of the VAC virus.

People infected with the “zombie” virus look normal but act aggressive and out of their minds. Are the Binghampton politicians infected already?

ZOMBIE BREAKOUT – Or is it all just youths? - Shawnee Editor - 11:55 am

Sources close to Paducah City Hall are confirming riots in their town. The news is coming in in dribs and drabs, but an unnamed source has made claims of a “zombie outbreak.” As riots grow in this small University City, questions must be asked of its leadership.

This is a personal story for us here at the Shawnee Social, as we hear our friend and freelance journalist John Kelloggs has been caught up in the attacks. This dedicated reporter has not been heard from since.

At time of press, City Hall is claiming that this riot was a protest. Our journalist, Alex Montrose has been informed that these riots were for reasons unknown

Rumours from within feel the police department is incompetent, claiming the police chief of staff hid from real action. Paducah Police Chief Mason tells us she was very busy manning the phones.

Is there anything these youths will not do? Can Police Chief Mason manage the Youth threat? And what does this mean for the Paducah Community Festival this Sunday?

Statewide Unrest across Mishigamaa - Mishigamaa Editor - 11:53 am

City officials from Romero City, Marquette and Grand Rapids have all issued statements to the press regarding violent incidents spreading across both cities.

Reports are coming in of riots – violent injuries and firestarting – which the emergency services are barely able to contain due to critical underfunding on a state level, and rumoured City Hall embezzlement in Romero City itself (according to an anonymous source in State Government).

All cities report that the emergency services have finally been able to contain the violence, but not before the mayor’s own house in Marquette was burned down, with only a lone Democrat rosette found at the scene of the crime.

The more excitable reports from the ground keep referring to “zombie outbreaks”, but at this point we have no further evidence as to the cause of the unrest, other than the Deputy Mayor of Grand Rapids refusing to deny the existence of zombies.

Breaking News: Youth in Revolt - Shawnee Editor - 11:38 am

Citizens of Wiederhorn have been left baffled and confused with the recent absence of their Mayor Ibbotson and Deputy Chief-of-Staff Cutts. Both senior and well respected members of the establishment, liked and loved by all, have not been heard from since two days ago. Talking to the remaining staff at the Wiederhorn City Hall it seems they are busy out of town. Deputy Mayor Moutsinas, acting as a spokesperson from the Wiederhorn Mayor’s office has told the Shawnee Social “they are at some kind of conference”. When pushed, we were told they were at an emergency briefing in Ouisconsin, although as of yet we have not been able to verify this story

People on the ground have been telling a different story. Rumours of bands of youths wearing low hanging jeans, playing popular music and speaking in slang have reached our office, an understandable cause for concern. Is the disappearance of our beloved mayor and these youths just a coincidence, or is this the start of a urban nightmare.

The Governer Firefly tells us the Wiederhorn are “not very forthcoming with information… I have nothing to say about that. That’s their problem.” Can the Wiederhorn Office run as an efficient and effective department without their Ibbotson and Cutts? Only time will tell.

Apple releases new Ibook - Susquehannock Reporter C - 9:46 am

Apple has shown its new device, the Ibook, in their yearly conference at San Francisco. Graham Pilens, the CEO of Apple, has promised their new e-reader will be a revolution in current state-of-the-art electronics: “The power of Ibook’s cores will allow the fastest, most efficient of the market to function quietly, guaranteeing an outstanding performance; not only for your reading enjoyment, but also work on documents, presentations, and media.”

Apple aims this way to enter the Ibook market currently in control of Microsoft. The CEO hopes to raise the company’s importance and stock market prices- dropping lately due to the poor performance of the latest release of their smartphone.

State of Adirondack announces new logo and motto (including typo) - Adirondack Editor - 9:35 am

“We build our future togheter” says the state of Adirondack’s new motto. One would say that a state administration could at least afford a decent spelling check.

The banner with this new motto has been spread on behalf of Gov. Tim Duerinck and shows a soft pink-and-purple background with the new logo as well.  Particularly remarkable is the style difference between the old-fashioned text in the logo, “Adirondack – Liberty and Prosperity” and the motto, flashy in stylish white with a very modern writing error in this fast-paced society.

Furthermore, the logo shows a ribbon in blue and red with a bird spreading its wings.

There has been no further comment from the State so far on this sudden change of logo and motto. What is up here?

Update 11h54: The state’s press officer has stated that the above mentioned spelling error is indeed a mistake but there has been decided not to correct it as a sign of openness to imperfection: “Nobody is perfect” are his words.

Moreover, strange things have been seen around the State administration’s building: people seemingly running around mindless like a headless chicken. Might they have something to do with this utterly stupid mistake?

 

People of Shawnee: Shawn the Shawnee Shrub - Shawnee Editor - 9:16 am

Wiederhorn, Shawnee: We all know and love the charming mascot of the The Shawnee State Shrubs, who have been led into university footballing hall of fame by their controversial coach Bill Tucket. But who is the man behind the shrub? We went to find out.

When I first came in to Shawn’s flat I was taken aback by how humble his home was. Father of five and mother of three, Shawn’s cosy flat is home to 9 potted plants in total. Amongst the clutter you’ll find college applications for the elder oaks, and hand paintings from the little ones’ nursery.

“So tell me Shawn, what first drew you in to mascot work?”

“Go shrubs!” Shawn warmly chants, offering me a mug of tea.

“Fascinating. And do you find your children inspire you in your work?”

A tear wells in the area where Shawn’s eyes should be. “Go Shrubs” he quietly chokes.

“Finally, do you have any words of encouragement for you aspiring mascots?”

“Go Shrubs!”

As I leave Shawn, I can’t help but reflect on what an inspirational figure he is to the community. I look forward to watching this career rise.

For more “People of Shawnee”, look out for the Shawnee Social – Press you can can be sure of

Pig Suspected in Subway Ram-raid - Ahao - Naomi Young - 8:40 pm

WASHINGTON COUNTY, AHAO: In further updates to our last story, it now seems Millie may be facing charges of her own.

The 3 year old Gloucester Old Spot was found supine in an alley outside Main Street, with food strewn around the place. The nearby Subway had its window smashed and large quantities of stock missing.

“It was a complete pigsty when I came in this morning!” said Chuck Farnsworth as he was cleaning up the detritus, “It seems pretty obvious who the culprit is” he added.

The police have taken Millie to a nearby farm where she is being held in solitary confinement until the effects of the Marijuana wear off. They stated they have no plans to charge her, though Chad may face criminal damage charges on top of his earlier arrest.

Chad Spohn Goes On Bender After Pet Pig Eats His Marijuana - Ahao Editor - 3:14 pm

WASHINGTON COUNTY, AHAO:- So much for living high on the hog.

An Ahao man allegedly went on a bender after his pet pig ate his stash of pot.

On Thursday, deputies in Washington County, Ahao arrested Chad Spohn, 44, on disorderly conduct charges that started after he discovered Millie, his beloved pet, had gobbled up his marijuana.

Deputies arrived at Spohn’s house after he called 911 several times and said he was having suicidal thoughts. During one call, he said he was holding a butcher’s knife to his own throat, according to the police report.

Spohn’s wife, Heather, told officers that her husband was already depressed because of their pending divorce before discovering the pig got into his cannabis.. She said he then downed an entire bottle of Everclear , a strong alcohol.

HIs wife told officers that Spohn gets very upset when he does not have any mariuana.

In order to arrest him, officers subdued Spohn with a Taser. He was charged with disorderly conduct by intoxication and resisting arrest, both misdemeanors, and later released.

Spohn is out of custody, but Millie may not be in his life much longer, according to a Facebook post dated Jun. 27, two days before his arrest.

“Anyone want a pig? She is free and comes with food and cage,” he wrote. “She is house broken as long as you show her where to go. If you have a dog, she will follow it. I just dont have time for her anymore.”

CENTERVILLE, Ahao (WCMH) – An Ahio man shared pictures of a 50-inch muskellunge caught over the weekend at Caesar Creek State Park.

Menker and his brother were fishing for saugeye with eight-pound test line when he caught the giant fish.

“Moms Birthday today! She must have threw one down from heaven,” Menker said in the post.

Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner (AP Aurelia Ontario) - Northland Editor - 2:22 am

“Well I don’t know, they just showed up at the door”, stated Mrs. Ida Olgunquit, when asked about her new American “friends”.

Ida, a kindly 84-year old resident of Aurelia, Ontario, took in a family of people who she believed to be lost, beleaguered American tourists.

“They were all dirty and grunting, wearing their ‘Make America Great Again’ hats. I thought they were lost so I invited them in for tea.”, the lovely lady continued, “I didn’t suspect anything until one of them tried to bite Captain Majectic’s tail [editor’s note: Captain Majestic is Ida Olgonquit’s Persian Cat].”

Mrs. Olgonquit called 911 shortly after serving the American visitors her reknowned steak tartare, which seemed to please them very much. When asked why she didn’t call authorities earlier, she simply stated “that wouldn’t have been very polite, dear.”

Apocalypse or not, your life may depend on it!”

Green Bay Quarterback reassures Ouisconsin - Ouisconsin Editor-In-Chief - 9:53 am

A.A Ron

Excited Green Bay Fans

Six times Pro-bowl quarterback A.A. Ron today reassured fans that the ongoing undead apocalypse won’t affect the teams performance.  “I mean sure the crowd is a bit more bitey than usual” he told Badger news earlier today, “but we’ve always had (re)animated fans and I know that the guys will rally round and keep playing no matter what”.

Director of stadium security at Lambeau Field Brian Favre also wished to reassure Ouisconsin  football lovers.  “While a higher than average number of stadium goers were eaten during the first game of the season, we have moved quickly to address the situation” he stated at a press conference last night.  “Since we began stocking fresh brains at all concession stands things have improved significantly.  We are also looking at suspending the season ticket of any customer caught devouring a Packers supporter”.

Northland Post issues commemorative stamps - Northland Editor - 5:15 am

The new commemorative stamps from Northland Post, marking 150 years of Confederation.

To mark the 150th anniversary of Confederation, Northland Post has issued a set of commemorative stamps.

 

Unveiling the new stamps, Deputy Prime Minister Aaron Brennan stressed the importance of this year’s Northland Day celebrations on July 1. “One hundred and fifty years ago, our forbears came together in Charlottetown to eat lobster and build a new country. At the time, they faced enormous challenges in bring together so many different peoples from coast to coast to coast. Today we are a people bound together in our common love of tolerance and diversity, our shared disdain for Toronto, and our collective inability to afford real estate in Vancouver.”

 

In what may or may not have been an oblique reference to the recent epidemic of undead-related mayhem South of the Border, Brennan added “We may all soon die as endless hordes of bloodthirsty lifeless fiends spill across our borders, devour our children and small pets, and litter our pristine streets with mangled body parts torn from the very bodies of the living—but, my fellow Northlanders, we will do so together, and do so with some very nice commemorative stamps as well.”

 

Northland Public Health Agency issues new advisories - Northland Editor - 2:41 am

The Northland Public Health Agency today released revised health guidelines for the month July.

“We are warning all Northlanders that plentiful spring rains, followed by a warm summer, have resulted in unusually high pollen levels across southern Ontario and Quebec.” said it statement. “Consequently, watery, itchy eyes and frequent sneezing are likely to afflict those suffering from seasonal allergies. These can be treated with simple over-the counter medication.”

The statement continued: “In addition, if travelling South of the Border this summer, travellers should be aware that growing numbers of Vicious Animated Corpses have been reported in areas of Mishigamaa and Adirondack. If VACs are encountered, we advise against approaching. Instead, it is recommended that Northlanders apologize politely, and withdraw from the area immediately.

Top experts agree: Montreal bagels are better - Northland Editor - 8:03 pm

Montreal (left) and New Amsterdam (right) bagels.

Experts from the Northland Institute of Culinary Arts today confirmed what all Northlanders have long known: Montreal bagels are vastly superior to those from New Amsterdam.

In contrast to the more bread-like bagels made in New Amsterdam (above right), those in Montreal are made with malt and sugar with no salt, and are  boiled in honey-sweetened water before baking in a wood-fired oven—resulting in both superior taste and superior zombie-killing capabilities. According to a statement issued by the Institute,”Our strict scientific testing has confirmed that Montreal bagels are sweeter, more delicious, and can incapacitate the undead when thrown with sufficient velocity at the head. Moreover, the wooden paddles traditionally used to place them in the oven can be sharpened and used as a defensive weapon, and the paper bags they come in when freshly baked can double as an emergency treatment for hyperventilation. By contrast, puffy New Amsterdam bagels simply bounce off their targets, and—when sold in plastic bags—represent a serious choking hazard for small children.”

NBC announces new season of “Dick Danger: Apocalypse Survival” - Northland Editor - 7:36 pm

Dick Danger sees some of the local historical sites during a visit to Sarnia, Ontario.

Popular reality television star Dick Danger will be back for another season on the Northland Broadcasting Corporation prime-time schedule, according to Emmy Nant-Menasse, Director of Strangely Relevant Programming at NBC.

“Dick Danger’s surviving fans have let us know that they want him back, regardless of whatever charges he faces in Costa Rica,” said Nant-Menasse. “Whether it’s wielding a blood-stained machete against ninja thugs in a dark ally, impaling an alien predator on a sharpened traffic cone, extracting drinking water from a dead racoon, or just being a Dick, no one else does it like Danger.”

Dick hot-wires a car during a recent episode of his hit TV series.

In a statement put out by his publicist, the star welcomed the NBC announcement. “Danger is my middle (and last) name, and so I’m very excited to be appearing in Northland for another season. My viewers are lucky to have me!”

A feature-length autobiographical movie, “Danger: Awesomeness Revealed” is scheduled for release later this year.

Northland Armed Forces may consider “limited call up of reservists” - Northland Editor - 4:11 pm

A spokesperson for the Northland Armed Forces has confirmed that the NAF might consider a “limited call up of reservists” if the crisis South of the Border grows any worse.

Such a mobilization of reserves—last seen during the Great Maple Syrup Shortage of 2015—would follow either declaration of a state of emergency by the federal government, or a request from the Ontario government for assistance under the Emergencies Act.

Chief of the Defence Staff General Daryl Cartier expressed confidence in the NAF’s ability to deal with any eventuality. “Despite having an underfunded regular forces component and reservists with decades-old hand-me-down equipment, the NAF is second to none. During the Zombie Invasion of 1812 our brave Northlands forces turned back the invaders, and we’re ready to do it again.”

He was quick to add that it was unlikely to prove necessary to burn down the White House again this time, however.

PM Judeau reassures Northlanders: Be happy, don’t panic - Northland Editor - 3:53 pm

Prime Minister Trustin Judeau today took a break from visiting an experimental yoga camp and organic farm to reassure Northlanders that a growing epidemic of violence and chaos South of the Border were “nothing to worry about.”

“Like you I have seen the news reports of mass murder, of shootings, of bloody walking corpses devouring the very brains of the living—but these should be put in context,” Judeau said to reporters as he lunched on a mixed salad of organic alfalfa sprouts and locally-sourced cranberries. “We’ve seen this sort of thing before. We’re well prepared. People should go about their daily business, whether it be eating poutine with the family, or welcoming immigrants, or deploring violence while celebrating a national game that is regularly punctuated by on-ice brawls.” The emergency services are well prepared for any eventuality, he added. “With Northland Day approaching on July 1st, I would urge everyone to be happy, don’t panic, and to bask in our great and friendly country’s innate sense of smug self-righteousness.”
