Kulan AliciaVulpnine Finds Heirs to Riches and Property
         A few nights ago, Alicia Vulpnine-Foxx announced that she has found not one but four heirs to continue her legacy after her death. It was a rather sad moment though, due to the fact that Mrs. Vulpnine became gravely ill during her announcement.
         Terra, Chrome, Gilead, and Sunni are now the rightful heirs of the immortal Vulpnine family and will continue to pass on the knowledge and riches in the event of the untimely demise of Alicia's existence.  "If I do die I will most likely return, but the memories I have gathered all these past centuries will be erased in my new physical body," She said in a testimonial to the residents of Spindizzy.
Argon It's Spring! Time To Make A Change!
  Just a reminder from one who should know, that along with the usual things we do in Spring, that CHANGING YOUR PASSWORDS should be high on the list.  The 'to-do'  listyou have under a magnet on your refrigerator including Spring Cleaning, planting that garden, and the usual amorous adventures this time of year elicit, should include the three times a year job of changing passwords.  

This is probably the easiest Spring job you'll have, but possibly the most important!

More On Trees
         Joining the fold of writers who refer to themselves in third person, our resident albino squirrel Waydya felt compelled to comment on the tree article last issue.
         "Planting more trees is a good thing," she was overheard remarking. "It is good for the world, and it is good for us. Not to mention the trees of course. This world needs more trees, more forests and everything."
         As for trees planted in random locations, the charming rodent lady would like to remind our prospective Johnny Appleseeds/Acorns/whatever that any object can be picked up and carried away unless they have had the ancient spell @lock cast upon them. This, she admitted, is indeed the reason why some trees have been found 'missing' - she has carried them off and tried to arrange them into a little forest somewhere.
         The SD administration is still in doubt about whether a 4'2" squirrel carrying off huge trees without artificial aids is a case for the police or for the Book of Records. In the meantime, anyone wondering where their tree went, should check out the Christmas Tree Retirement home a bit north of the Rose Garden. And remember to @lock the roots next time they plant a tree.
( Editor's Note:  To lock an object, use the command '@lock object=me'  where object is the name of the thing you wish to lock, of course.  To unlock something, simply use '@unlock object' )
AliciaVulpnine Hydroponics Garden Started
         Alicia has announced that she has started to develop a hydroponics garden in the N2 W1 area. The main reason for this development was to experiment on a reliable food source that can be mass produced and grown at an incredible rate.
         Hydroponics is the ability to grow plant life from the water itself instead of using ground soil. This ability to grow plants in the water directly allows the plant to still be picked, transferred, and stored while it is still living, eliminating the need for large gardens and short periods of storage.
         The garden itself will be housed in a large dome.  Inside, there will be a large lake covered with various experimental plant life that is suitable and consumable for the general public. As well as hydroponics production, around the center of the lake are large vats with basic proteins. Along with the garden she is planning to produce a meat-like substance by assembling basic proteins together, forming a healthier and non-death alternative for carnivores. At the center of a dome is a large sphere in which several laboratories will be housed for the production and testing of newer hydroponic plant life. Also housed in the sphere will be Alicia's new home.
         "I hope to slowly contribute to the rest of SD and all of life itself through the use of this hydroponics garden," Alicia said in a public speech.
SED Press Release RECALL:  SED Brand Rubber Freshener
         The SED has issued a recall notice for the 'SED Brand Rubber Freshener' that they have recently been marketing to rubber-based organisms, such as certain coatis.   Apparently it causes the organisms to crack and break apart prematurely, requiring much rubber cement to fix them back up.  Natasha, local coati, insists that "It's Morticon's daffy brain that needs to be recalled."
         Morticon was not available for comment.

@Action News Info Guidelines and Procedure for Submitting Articles
>> Procedure for submitting an article:
 *  The newspaper building is located at Role Play Central (rpc).  When you
enter the building you will see a bulletin board.
 *  Go ahead and 'write' your story.  If you decide you don't want to write
one, hit .abort and forget about it.  Otherwise page 'newspaper' alerting
us that you wrote one when you finish pasting it in.
 *  An alternative to this is to page #mail newspaper with your story OR
 * We will edit it and tell you where you can look at it to make sure it wasn't mangled.  You can then p #mail the editor involved saying that it is ok.  Otherwise, suggest changes that should be made. If you trust the editors feel free to put something to the effect that you pre-approve the editing in your rough draft.
 * That's it!  It'll appear in the paper!
>> Guidelines for writing articles:
When writing articles for the paper...
 * Try and do some proofreading before submission.  That means spell check!
However, if you're no good at that sort of stuff, just send it as-is and the
editors will try their best.
 * No articles whose sole purpose is to flame someone.  You can use the SpinDizzy BB for
that ;)
 * Please strive for accuracy.  If they have time, the editors may check up on some of the quotes and perhaps the basic facts of the article.  Otherwise, it is assumed you did your best to write an accurate article.  If this is abused and inaccurate things are complained about, stricter rules may be put in place.
* Submitting your article anytime on Friday evening through the normal publishing date (Saturday night) will usually waive your right to review the edited version because of time constraints.  You will be contacted and informed but if you cannot get on before the publishing deadline to check your article it will be published regardless UNLESS you specify otherwise.
 * The editors' decisions are final.  This is not a wiz ran paper so do not
complain to them.  We can be reached by paging 'newspaper'.
 * Just about anything is published, so be creative!  It can be IC views on
RL topics, RPs that occurred around the MUCK, or most other things you can
think of.  You have creative license when it comes to documenting RPs, so
feel free to expound on the action, etc.  If you aren't sure if a story is
acceptable, page 'newspaper' and find out! :)
 * The AUP applies, so keep language and content acceptable.
