Fires Spread Across Hood

Jadhira Shazad

At the end of the simyear, the hood was shocked to find that overnight two buildings had burned to the ground.

At 10:37 pm, firefighters were called to the Kent residence where they discovered the house engulfed in flames. Thankfully the family managed to escape in time, but everything was destroyed.

"It's a shame," Ayanna Kent said. "To lose everything in the span of a few hours is devastating. Nothing could be saved, the only things that we still have are our pajamas."

At 11:58 pm, firefighters were again called out to the 18th block in the metro where a large commerical building was also ablaze.

"Everything was loss due to either fire or smoke damage. It's a shame, I really liked bowling here." One firefighter said at the scene.

According to Detective Tobi Sweeny, following an investigation it was determined that both fires are unrelated due to faulty wiring in the Kent case and a freak lightening strike in the metro case.

Hood Council Changes

This simyear residents were greeted with the news that the hood council was changing. Financial Director, Rebecca Wilsonoff has stepped down. S'Ahmisa Warwick will be serving as Interium Financial Director until the next election. S'Ahmisa brings past experience as an intern for Mayor Cunningham of Simmington Hills and has assured residents that she has considerable experience with finances as evident by her past successful business ventures.

New Welcome Center

Residents and visitors to Apple Valley can now experience a new virtual welcome center. Located in the sidebar, the welcome center provides an easy way for visitors to determine how they want to explore.

"This is the first step in bringing more information over to blogspot," Archives/Technology Director, Jadhira Shazad said. "Eventually we'd want more real estate, public pages, and employment information on blogspot for residents and visitors alike."

The director also mentioned that other changes are expected, such as updates posted twice a week and that residents can expect to have thier DNA collected this upcoming simyear.

New School Opens

Residents can now see much of their tax money going to good use. A brand new school was opened and it has plenty of room for future additions.

"The new school will help us meet the need of the increasing population," Education Director, Johan Shazad, explained. "With the new school and additional room, we can hire more teachers to serve the community."

Already in the works are adding a state-of-the-art science lab, updated computers and healthier cafeteria food options.

Culinary Corner

Welcome to Culinary Corner! This simday's topic is all about tasty fresh produce. Most sims already notice that food cooked with fresh produce tends to have a different look about it, almost like it sparkles in comparision to food cooked from processed grocery items. But did you know that food cooked from fresh produce fills you up faster and enables you to eat less?
Happy Eating!

  1. Wow lots of changes going on. Can't wait to see what's happening.

  2. Wow, 2006 was a really jam-packed year for Apple Valley! Do you only include engagements if the couple is not yet married?

  3. -Heredon Cove, thanks for reading and commenting. Simyear 2007 has a TON of changes, it's crazy.

    -Carla, I include engagements the year that they got engaged, so even if they got married the same year, then the paper would have an engagement and marriage annoucement as well. If you're wondering about Bill & Emma, they didn't go through the engagement since it was forced :)


Thanks for reading and taking the time to comment! :)
