Phoenix shooting kills 1 and injures 2

On Wednesday a gunman walked into an office complex and started shooting. The people at the office claimed that Arthur Harmon, 70 just had a meeting with one of the people at the office about a lawsuit and it didn’t go the way he had wanted it to go so he opened fire and shot and killed Steven Singer who was meeting with Harmon about his lawsuit.
Harmon also injured 2 others: a male lawyer and a female in her 30s who both worked in the office. Some of the people who were in the same office building say they heard the gun shots so they locked their doors and hid under their desks and waited. Near this office was a middle school who was put into lockdown. The swat team tried to track down Harmon at his home 8 miles north of the shooting after he fled the scene but he was not at his home.
I think since the Newtown shooting, there has been a lot of violence. Like it has created a bad vibe and people are taking out their anger on helpless citizens. Also that shooting proved that you don’t have to live in a big city for that to happen, it can happen to anyone.

Cat Travels 200 Miles Back Home

Jacob and Bonnie Richter took a trip in November to Daytona Beach Florida for an R.V rally. During the trip their 4 year old cat Holly was lost. On New Years Eve Holly came walking through their backyard weak and probably hungry. She had traveled the 200 mile trip from Daytona Beach all the way back home! Many thought that it was not the same cat but her owners say that they knew it was her because of her distinct pattern. Also she has a micro-chip in her.
Well how did she find her way home without getting lost? Study’s prove that cats know their way around by recognizing landscape, locations,sights,and smells. Cats can also easily figure out shortcuts around places. Scientists have done tests and discovered that some cats were “two timing ” their owners by living at their house and staying for a while then leaving and going to their other house for a while then returning.
Holly showed up in Barb Mazzolas backyard and she could barely stand. They fed and cared for her for 6 days. They said when she arrived her back claws were wore down to nothing from walking such a long way. They also said she was shy around people but she didn’t have any parasites or diseases. Barb took Holly to a vet so she could get checked out and told the people to check if she had a chip in her and was disappointed to find that she did and holly was returned to owners and lived happily ever after.

A man in Detroit was fishing for perch in Lake Saint Clair last Friday when he thought he got a big perch and he looked at it and realized it was not a big perch, it was a big goldfish! The goldfish weighted in at 3 lbs and it was 15 inches long!
My brother has 2 fish and what happens is they will grow as big as their environment and they grew too big for their other tank so we had to put them In a bigger tank. I think how the fish got so big was someone let the fish go in the lake and it kept growing and growing and it grew to be that big!
Mike Martin (the man who caught the fish) said that he has been fishing for 20 years and has never seen anything like that and he says that he plans to mount the fish.
