Two girls caught Breaking and Entering

Two girls caught Breaking and Entering

Lexington, NC-

Two girls had broken into a house around 10:32. The girls that had broken in were from Charlotte, NC they had both broken in to the house and started to load things into their pockets and purses and whatever they could find. It wasn’t too long after they broke in that the cops were called. The girls took off out the back door, but the cops had already surrounded the house. They tried to run for the woods but they were caught eventually.

The girls were both 16 and were run a way’s, the parents had been looking for them when they saw on the news they had been arrested. We talked to the girls about what they did and they both said “were poor we were just trying to make some money”. Both girls were both sent to be trialed, they were found guilty. Both parents didn’t want to see their kids go to jail, so they ended up with 6 months of community service. Our reporters later talked with these girls a few weeks before they would get released to see if they had changed their minds about breaking and entering. “The thing we did was wrong, but it did happen and even if we wished we could take it back we can’t.” the two girls said.

The girls were released from community service a couple weeks later. The parents of the two young girls looked so happy to see their daughters. Both of the young 16 year old girls have stated that, that was the longest and worst time away from their parents. The girls also said “it actually felt good to help the community”. They said they are going to help the community more so they have something to do to keep their minds off of getting in trouble.

We wanted to do a checkup on the girls to see if they had been doing well. We talked to the parents and they said “the girls have a better attitude and are still working with the community service”.

Wilie Wonka Review


Willy Wonka is an overall great movie. If you have a young child or if your just a young person at heart and love these kinds of movies this would be a great movie idea for you. You wont go through this movie without a laugh.  15 years before the story begins, Willy Wonka dismissed his employees and locked his factory gates.  One day Willy Wonka announces a contest: For the five lucky children who find golden tickets in their Wonka Bars, and Willy Wonka will personally take them through the factory. A special surprise is promised for one of them. Of course Charlie wins one of the tickets, not without surprise.

 The movie deals with kids having to find golden tickets to meet willy wonka and go in his factory. .The kids go through all these places and one rotten kid after the other starts to go away. The situations they are in are funny and dangerous. At the end of the tour Charlie is the only one left so he is the one that gets the surprise. Willy then offers him to come and stay with him to take over the factory but Charlie refuses. Charlie wont leave his family to go watch the factory,

This movie is a great laugh and a great movie to enjoy with the family but it also teaches a good lesson. It tells you no matter how small you think you are good things can happen. Also never leave your family for one thing, your family should always be more important then anything else.

Blackfish movie review

Lexington NC-

Blackfish is a movie about orcas and the attacks they have done. Blackfish is in productions with magnolia and CNN. They created this documentary to let people know how Tilikum and many other killer whales have killed many people.

Even though tilikum has killed many people trainers still want to work with him in the tanks and see if he will change. Tilikums past also goes along with why he has killed, he’s had a traumatic life, being taken from his mother and also being kept in a little tank his whole life. In Tilikums defense there has never been a report of a orca killing anyone in the wild but in captivity they have killed a lot of people because of the stress and being locked up.

Tilikum would listen but also be stubborn leading up to the point of a trainers death. The trainers name was Dawn, no one suspected for tilikum to kill her because she had such a personal connection with the whales. When tilikum wouldn’t listen or would get something wrong the other two female orcas would attack him. Tilikum would have scratches everywhere from them slamming into him. They would also lock him and the other two females in a 20ft by 30ft pool all night and most of the day. The orcas would spend half of there lives in a pool.

One of the men in the video talks about being on the boat where they had to pick the baby orcas from their mothers. He said it was the hardest thing because you just imagine your own kids being taken away from you. Now that he looks back he didn’t know what he was doing wrong he thought this is what was suppose to happen. By the time they got all of the orcas to the enclosure, half of them would be dead. If the orcas were dead they would tie chains and cement bricks to them and sink them to the bottom of the ocean. He didn’t know at the time you weren’t suppose to do that but later on found out and quit.

The orcas in captivity should be set free because there not made to be there, their meant to be able to swim over 1000 miles a day and not be only able to swim 50 ft. The movie was an overall good movie and it gave you a good inside look on what goes on in the minds of the killer whale.
