My name is Rachel. I am 9 years old. I am creating this newspaper that will be all about Wolverton. This means you might be in it too. My little brother Sam is going to be putting in his own article. And some of my friends might be in it. Contact me if you have news and I’ll include it. I am homeschooled so I have time for this. I hope you enjoy it.

Wolverton Whimsy – 1st Issue – pdf copy of print edition
Notice the size of this footprint – it’s as big as my head. This footprint was found at the ice-rink. I can tell this is a footprint because of the three toes. And look at the size! I believe this is a footprint from our very own bigfoot. See the contest below to name our bigfoot.
What do you think we should call the wolverton big foot. If you have an idea put it in the comments below and next edition we’ll have a poll. Maybe your name will be the best one!
There’s an Ice Rink?
Yes, there is an ice rink. In fact there are two!
The white arrow points to the ice rink where people who are grown up used to skate when they were kids. Now it is being used for Hockey. The one that the black arrow points to is the ice-rink that kids use today. This rink was made by Ed Stahlbaum.
Here is an interview with Ed:
Intrepid Reporter: Why did you choose that to be the ice rink?
Ed: Because it was hidden away.
Intrepid Reporter: Why was this area of water made?
Ed: For irrigation, it was to make a pond bigger to irrigate crops.
Intrepid Reporter: How did you make the ice rink?
Ed: Shovelled off the snow.
Thank you for making the ice-rink Ed!

I have good times skating. And I got my skates on. And I went and skated on the nice cold ice. And I skated until my knees hurt. And then I skated on ice really fast. And then I went and skated on cold cold cold cold ice. And I wanted to go home because my nose was freezing.
Meet a Family
We think it would be a good idea for everyone to meet each other, so I’ll start by introducing my family. Next time we’ll do another family. As you know I am part of my family. I have a mom named Rebecca, a dad named Mark, a little sister named Lilly, a little brother named Sam, and a big brother named Tom. My dad works, my mom stays home and homeschools us, she also babysits and has her own business. My big brother doesn’t live with us – he goes to university in Guelph. Contact me if you want to be the next family! Bye
Joke of the day
So there were two sausages on a barbecue and one sausage says “phew – it’s hot in here”, and the other sausage says “AHHHHH! A talking sausage!!!”
