Salt City in Flames!

2006/07/10

Great Basin Territory (Deseret), ALTA CALIFORNIA

July 9, 2006

Salt City is in flames. In a concerted attack of the Ouaren Gough and his band of militant “apostles” and disciples, the FLDS militia swept down on the settlement of Salt City near the shores of the Great Salt Lake, killing men and women, destroying homes, farms, and focused on religious structures, including The Bowery of the New and Living Ministry of Jesus Christ of Modern Saints. The Bowery to the Ministry was a precursor to a Temple like that of Solomon in Israel, according to inside sources.

Gough and his band gathered up all the young women they could find, as they are reputed to practice polygamy with a penchant for child-marriages, where young girls, barely of teen years, and often younger are wed to 40 year old men.

“The are pedophiles of the worst kind,” Territorial Governor Rodrigo Vasquez said in his offices in the Mission de San Pedro de Galilea, on a bench overlooking the waters of the Lago Galilea.

“This man has escalated his violent attacks since he usurped power in his cult. They seek out the humble monks who have worked so long with the indians and mutilate or kill them.”

Governor Vasquez is mounting armed groups to guide the survivors of the Ministry at Salt City to Ciuidad Galilea, the de facto capital of the region. Additional supplies and troops are being sent from the more populous regions of Alta California to restore the peace and end the crisis.

The Louisiannan government has offered the service of military strategists to help the Alta Californian government in the death or capture of Ouren Gough and his band. As yet, there has been no response from the government in San Diego.

News from Tampa

Tampa, Irish Peacekeeping Zone, South Florida

July 10, 2006

The new proposed flag of South Florida was revealed today*, to mixed review. Sharing colors with Florida-Caribbea, (red, white and blue) but styled on the flag of Castile and Leon, the flag has served as a unifying force for some, for others, only contention.

Juan de Azevedo of Punta Gorda is for the flag. “It’s beautiful. It reminds of the good that did exist in Florida-Caribbea, and the better that happened with Castile and Leon. It’s a sign of a new future.”

Laura Zavala of Tampa disagrees. “It brings back the tyranny. I think that once the Erdekans and Irish leave we’ll be facing another series of Juntas. The only time someone has cared about Florida was under Jaime Bush’s rule.

The proposed South Florida Confederation is proceeding apace, with several prospective member states moving toward autonomy, and the well established Republica Conchesa is completely protected by local Floridians.

Surprisingly, progress has been made in Orlando, but mostly due to aid from East Florida to their Orlando cousins. Only reports of shanty towns in the RTC zone manage to reach news outlets and the RTC occupation force as well as the RTC government remain quiet on the issue. Reporters are routinely blocked as they try to pass from the Irish to RTC zones.
