This week’s photo comes from a drone that was following an East River dinosaur, which became fascinated by Elisha’s head, an animated head atop a rock near East River Municipal Airport.
East River investigators are looking into a mysterious crash of a United City States helicopter only thirty minutes after landing at the Michie Marine compound at the mouth of the East River. Witnesses that saw the helicopter land say that something was loaded onto it and it took off shortly after landing.
“Michie is a philanthropist beyond suspicion,” said the Sheriff’s Department. “I think it’s likely that there was a mechanical failure.”
The Buckland rebuild is soon to be finished and combat is already heating up.
“We don’t like to keep score,” said one East River vigilante, “but it’s 10 nothing against those Waterbank separatists.”
Waterbank Fish Company has been accused by the Mowry Constable of “fostering separatism” in the latest of Mowry Town Hall.
“I was shocked,” said a five year old we interviewed. “I was just playing with my toys, and then he just stood up and said all this crazy stuff!”
“It was everything I had always feared coming true,” said the five year old’s mother. “We eat their fish sticks every night! My boy loves the Undinian Trout and my husband loves the Dutch Harbor mollusks… so scary!”
Waterbank Fish Company refused to comment on the allegation, instead replying with “we will always provide our customers with the fish they love.”
Buckland Military Region, the unique combat training ground that has won accolades from tens of military and law enforcement groups, has doubled its holdings.
“It’s a huge boost,” said the editor for Soldier of Modest Fortune magazine. “We can practice our craft in the air, sea, and land.”
Proxy War Fought at Buckland
East and West River forces are actively fighting each other at Buckland, using the combat space instead of open conflict near their populations.
“It started as just a few guys with pistols,” said an East River combatant who described herself as ‘Deadshot Gil.’ “Then those vermits brought rocket launchers.”
“It wasn’t the original intention of the space,” said on of the maintenace people at Buckland, “but it works.” The person has the unenviable job of replacing destroyed oil drums (18 hp). “Meh, it’s a job, right? What else am I gonna do with a Phd in linguistics?”
The Fugitive Lawyer has negotiated an immunity and extradition deal for the three reporters charged with crimes of conspiracy, transferring the three to West River.
“Passions are too high in the East River, and I think the judge knows that,” the lawyer said. “West River has been actively courting Waterbank citizens, so it’s a good fit. The three will be transferred to an undisclosed location and will not be allowed to publish.”
The deal has the support of moderates in East River, though the tension between East and West Rivers remains. Waterbank citizens have been discussing moving to West River in greater numbers after the arrest of the reporters.
Grizedale ER Rapid station (link to station) has won an award from the WBA as “Best Transit Hub 2018,” an award that was delayed due to a contending ER Rapid Station.
“The word ‘hub’ was argued over,” said a WBA rep, “because that covers airports and ports too. So for 2018 we awarded three awards for hubs.”
Grizedale is a growing community in the East River territory, and the new home to East River administration.
The Sheriff’s Department had to intervene after two rival gas stations in Mowry went further than price slashing.
“The owners came out and started yelling,” said a witness. “One side said ‘ethanol!’ and the other said ‘diesel!’ until they were both screaming. I thought it would calm down but then one said something about a shipment of Slim Jims and the other freaked out, and ran for a gun. After that I ran for cover!”
Sheriff’s deputies arrived shortly after and found themselves in a firefight. “We were lucky they couldn’t hit the side of a barn,” one said. “The neighboring barn is full of moonshine.”
