First of Many
Vivienne Malone was sworn in on Friday as a State Public Defender. Gracie McCoy told Maxine, “It was a quick and simple swearing in ceremony.” There will be more happening tomorrow at the 9th Congress Inauguration, so look out for a future article on that. Wow!
Hooray for Madi!
The Yellow Jack had a celebration this evening. There was a raffle for a Comet Safari, music, a photo booth with a Momenti D’Amore photographer, and lots of food and drinks. The turnout was great! So many people came to celebrate, and it was exciting! I bet Madi was over the moon!
Interested in Nature?
The Parks Division of the San Andreas Parks Department has opened up Parks Employee applications. If you’re interested in working in the county and doing nature things, you should consider applying. They put on events like the yoga one and the hike, both happening this week. If you have any questions, you can stop by the Parks Division HQ (Sunshine Welcome Center) in Paleto or contact Poppy Hill and Syrean Jadier.
It’s no secret Jack Callow is great at talking. In the past month, he has spent hours taking the time to get to know some prominent people in San Andreas. These interviews are part of a new series published here on Weazel News called The Exchange w/ Jack Callow. The first two episodes saw Jack sitting down with the Lawson-Finch and Key-McCoy campaigns, and the latest two are with state rep elects Artemis Blackthorne and Joanna Poole. Episode 5 has already been recorded and should be out in the near future.
Protest at the Prison
Maxine here! I was hanging out with a friend of mine when I saw a protest being held at Bolingbroke Penitentiary on Yeeter. Being a supporter of people’s right to assembly, I raced down there and joined the fray. When I arrived, there were two individuals dressed in orange merch, possibly representing a club or group I couldn’t identify. They informed me that the protest was being held regarding the fact that their clothing was taken upon being processed, and upon release, not a sock nor shirt was ever returned.
They encouraged me to grab a sign from their car and shout along with, “Give us clothes or give us freedom!,” of which I obviously did for about fifteen minutes. When it became clear that the Department of Corrections (DOC) wasn’t going to make an appearance, and our crowd of three wasn’t growing any larger, they began to… well, derail into unsavory activities. I ended up preventing it from getting out of hand, and everyone eventually went on their merry way. It’s a pity that the protest wasn’t successful, but I’ll always be proud of people using their First Amendment Rights in San Andreas!
Snooters Court Case
Some of you may have heard, or maybe many, considering how everyone I talked to on Monday night was telling me about attending a court case regarding Snooters. I had other things to attend to, so I didn’t go, but I managed to catch part of it in the Weazel News broadcast. Something about copyright and whose script or project it belongs to. It was complicated. Did you watch it in-person or on your phone? What did you think?
While the judge didn’t make a final decision that night, their verdict was posted to the docket, stating Michael Andino as the clear owner of the script and dismissing Snooters’ claim. Read the full verdict on the [2023-CV-084] docket yourself, or stay tuned because there should be an article coming out soon from Weazel News with a TLDW (Too Long, Didn’t Watch) for you!
Last But Not Least…
For the 8th Congress, Governor Damien Key has signed the final bill, H.R. 306. Basically, this bill updates the payscale for nurses within San Andreas Medical Services. I think the updated payscale makes a lot more sense. Why were nurses paid less for so long? Who knows? Doesn’t matter anymore!

Stella’s Recommendation of the Week…
I feel like it’s that time of year again. Everyone is getting sick from visiting their families over the holidays. Their bodies are finally catching up to them, and now people feel poopy. If you’re someone who is feeling sick, make sure you see a doctor. Maybe they can prescribe some medication for you to feel better sooner. And remember, rest up and stay hydrated!
Have a Stella Day and a hardcore night, San Andreas!
