    Sam,

    I haven't heard from you since you left. I hope things are as OK as they can be.

    Just thought of something that might give you a chuckle: Dennis is experimenting with an online edition of the Basswood Jungle.

    We had a whopping 3 readers last week. Walter says digital won't take off here for another decade... still, if you miss us, we're just a couple of clicks away.

    Seriously though, call me.

    Hey

    It looks like you're not coming back to the Jungle. Hard to be sure, as you left without saying goodbye to anyone. Your choice, but if you decide to turn your flounce into a permanent resignation, I’ll revoke your server access next week. Let me know. Or don’t. Dennis

    Everyone, It's been a while since we last had a Basswood Jungle team lunch. And we all know Sam could use some cheering up. I think we should go for tacos on Friday. Don't say anything to him, though. Let's make it a surprise.

    Samuel,

    Your article has clearly ruffled some feathers in Basswood and in the wider mining community. A week after it went to print, the phone is still ringing off the hook! And you've seen the pile of mail we get from readers every morning.

    But do not take the present upheaval too much to heart. Ruffling feathers is the hallmark of good reporting. You told the truth, and told it well. Always be proud of that.

    Now, if you need something to take your mind off things, I do have an assignment on that new recycling plant out of town. It’s yours any time you want it.

    Onwards and upwards, my boy.

Victory for the Mallards

by Nicholas Waldron

High school baseball team the Mallards kicked off the Junior Series with a victory last night. The delight of the crowd was echoed by the team, hopeful to bring Basswood its first title for over a decade.

“Yeah, this feels pretty special,” Mallards’ coach Logan Kincaid told us; “I mean, when I came to Basswood the town was thriving, but the sports scene? Yeah, not so much. You compare that to now… I mean, the past few years have been pretty tough on the kids here, but they really seem to have drawn strength from that struggle and come out on top. I truly could not be prouder to be their coach.”

The Mallards look forward to a lucky season, with excellent weather and hopefully few injuries. But luck only plays a small part of this picture. It’s been the Mallard’s hard work and dedication which has paid off, as their victory last night shows.

With his contract up for renewal, he was asked about his future with the team, Coach Kincaid replied by turning to the crowd and bellowing, “Y’all still want me?!”, causing them to rise, as one, in support. As Kincaid was lifted onto the shoulders of his cheering team, it certainly looked like his tenure as coach of the Mallards is all but confirmed for another season.

Letters to the editor

To the Editor:

Like many of your readers, I was moved by Anna Miller's report on the local woman giving shelter to people fallen on hard times. It's heartening to see that solidarity is alive and well. I live on a modest income myself, but I would like to donate some clothes and non-perishables to the community. Where might I send them?

Night of the Vandal

by C.W. Thomas

A vandalism epidemic that has been plaguing Basswood was last night put to a dramatic halt by the Basswood P. D., who finally managed to catch a number of the culprits red-handed at the scene of the crime. The suspects were detained by officers as they began to deface an abandoned site, rumored to have been bought as part of a new redevelopment deal.

Officer Declan Stephenson told the Jungle: “We’ve had our ear to the ground on this one. A number of tip-offs from concerned residents meant that we had a little forewarning as to the time and location of the incident that took place last night. We were able to position several officers in the vicinity, and after that, it was a simple case of sitting and waiting. I can confirm that we have video evidence of the incident and that we were able to secure three suspects in police custody”. Police are appealing to anyone with further information to come forward.

Although the names of those arrested cannot be revealed at this current time, it’s encouraging to see our police department taking a firm stance against anti-social behavior. Our town may be facing its fair share of problems, but we can still send a firm message to those wishing to break the law: Basswood is not afraid of you.
