"THE VIRTUAL TOWN COMMUNITY EXPRESS"
Volume 1, Issue 1
February 13, 2008


Angie is a true multi-tasker. At one stop, you can get the best haircut or a perfect piece of jewelry. Where better to send your sweetheart before Valentine’s Day for a haircut than to Angie’s barber shop and jewelry store. Make sure you phone her and let her know which piece of jewelry you want her to “talk up” while she’s cutting your honey’s hair.

Scrapbooking is a popular hobby, so a trip to virgo152’s shop to get help with your latest project is a must. Another multi-tasker, virgo152, also has a photo studio in the scrapbook store where you can have special photos taken to add to your scrapbooks.

Recently mikki reported that she was in need of some sewing alterations. She went outside the community for a solution, but babetoo has announced she has just opened her sewing service. She brings her years of experience to fill your sewing needs.

GB, with his fine photography skills, is advertising his services to both the city as town photographer and to the newspaper for staff photographer. Look for his photos.

Finally, we’ve just learned that one of our fine citizens is planning a old-fashioned “nostalgia” drugstore soda fountain café. Applications for soda “jerks” and ladies who wish to tune up their roller skates to serve drive-up customers should be submitted to this newspaper. The business has applied for Mayor Uncle Bob’s tax incentives. The application is pending. An announcement is expected soon.

The next issue of The Virtual Town Community Express will be on the stands in March. Don’t miss what’s happening in your community!

Katie E

Great newspaper Katie E! A few copies will be available in the reading area of the Arcade. They will of course be recycled when the next issue comes out.

Guess, you'll have to go back to tax school and learn some more stuff. Glad you liked the "paper." I'll try to get another one out next month.

Long live our wonderful growing community.

Mmm, guess this maybe a case of the foreign terminology. A taxi service picks people up, and drops them off. A cab I guess you call them. Nothing to do with accounting, but I guess I can drive and fiddle the books on the side if the money was worth it!!

***K'elf slowly stretches...yawns contently..opens the door to melting snow....what's that?...mmmmm......on bare tiptoes, making tracks through the very wet snow, leans down to pick up a paper...captured with the first words of the first newspaper K'elf slowly makes it back inside to her waiting fireplace...curls up on her sofa with a steaming cup of coffee and is glad she moved to the community of DC.











Great job Katie E

Awsome paper Katie its nice to see everything summed up. So now I think we also need a flower shop and a family clinic, a vet/ animal groomer. All our foreign friends are encouraged to move to our perfect little town as Mayor Uncle Bob has full power to wave immigration laws so they can provide services we can't get anywhere else.
