Magic Conservation Months

In recent years magic use has risen to uncomfortably high levels during the holiday season. The cost of concealing the effects of wizardry from Muggles becomes increasingly burdensome.As you are well aware surplus magical energy has been known to spill out into the General Public. Quite frankly something had to be done. Therefore the Department for the Regulation and Control of Hocus-Pocus in conjunction with the town of Chipping Sodbury, West England has introduced this reduction scheduale below. If you will refrain from using magic at these times it will allow our Magic Accident Reversal Squads to deploy their services wisely. In addition city center residents and local area businesses are asked to tone down their X-mas displays during weekdays when there are so many Muggle day-trippers.

Thank you
for your consideration

Recall Demanded
Creaturama Conglomerates announced a recall of "Hagrid's Dragon Tamer Kits" . According to the manufacturer the problem concerns over 400 gloves and faceguards. Apparently the tanned Mandrake hide normally used in production was replaced by a synthetic imitation. You must remember the uproarious pandemonium that the introduction of Hagrid's Dragon Tamer Kits made when they first hit the streets. Most people found the instruction manual included with all the other odd contrivances hilarious. Most people did not take the product seriously and thought it was a great farce. Not so in East Farthing and also Lobingmeadow where several customers, while trying to avoid the rapid and blistering attack of their yet untamed dragons, found the aforementioned articles of protection lacking. Madame Pomfret has been engaged as a medical consultant by Creaturama. Anyone hurt while using a Hagrid's Dragon Tamer Kit may contact her at their headquarters in Little Thumberland or C/O Hogwarts Wizarding School.

C. East Farthing
D. Lobingmeadow

Teguom's Outlook

Recently I read in Gringotts'Gazzette that the Camelot Herald is in dire straits financially. Perhaps they are only a few days away from bankrupcy. Suppliers have been clamoring to be paid.
Not long ago, the Camelot itself made the news with a bizzare industrial accident. One worker was lost and two were maimed when a four ton printing press inexplicably levitated. The employees were trying to return the machine to the ground when it suddenly lurched and fell on them. Then for the first time in 362 years there was no morning edition of the newspaper. The Industrial Safety Commission is making an inquiry into the incident. Speculation abounds but those in the know think that he-who-must-not-be-named was involved.
There is no official word from the Arthurian Entertainment Ltd. (the parent company of the Camelot Herald.) however rumor has it that the Herald was behind or had cancelled their Worker's Compensation policy with Ethereal Insurance of North Cumberbuns. This would certainly explain their monetary woes. I'll try to keep you informed
