    Today it's a great day for the whole of Rimroth, today RASA (Rimrothian Aeronautics and Space Administration) has launched a rocket to the moon. 5 cosmonauts are going there. One of them stays in the orbiter, while the other four of them are going to the surface of the moon with the lander. The reason for this adventure, is that the government of Rimroth decided to establish a research base on the moon.
    Yesterday The Voice of Rimroth had a chance to speak with one of the cosmonauts. Charley McGregor. "We have trained for 3 years to go there and tomorrow it's finally going to happen. The mission is being sponsored by Niervaert Industries. We are very thankful for that because it wasn't possible without them. The name of the rocket is the Bacchus II, if you're interested in that." We thanked the man for speaking with us, and we wished him good luck.

    Today it's a great day in Rimrothian history. RASA's Bacchus II landed on the moon said RASA's spokesman Andr? Wilders. "Soil samples are going to be taken and in about four days the astronauts will return to earth." Also Charley McGregor talked on RTV I, via radio, about the happenings on the moon. "It's very empty and inhospitable, also quite cold according to our measurements. We are going to establish a base here, so we can return later with another mission." One of the three astronauts is in the orbiter, which orbits the moon. The lander will rendezvouz later when they took off and then they fly back to earth, and according to RASA's measurements and calculations they will land somewhere for the shores of Inquista, so Rimroth ships will pick them up when they landed in the ocean.

    After RASA's dicision to stay a little longer on the Moon-Base the return to Earth has started. A quarter ago the the 2 astronauts lifted off and are flying to the orbiter where the third astronaut is waiting to dock with the lander and fly back to Earth. In about 4-5 days they are back on Earth and the Baron of Rimroth will welcome them back. They will land somewhere in Mediterranean Sea. A ship designed to pick the spacecraft out of the ocean will travel to where they landed and will take the spacecraft and the astronauts back to shore. After that they are being brought home and the day after there will be a procession in Rimroth-City.

    A disaster happened this afternoon in Goroth. This afternoon the Baron came to the White Tower to gave his annual speech. Today is the day the first Baron came to power. During the speech a lot of guards where present to ensure the safety of the audience and the Baron. After about seven minutes a few people in the audience started screaming. The guards immediately approach the audience to keep the calmness. A few guards, who were near the Baron, grabbed him by his shoulders and pulled him in the tower. A few moments later one person has been shot down. He had a revolver with him. Then there was a white flash and the audience and the guards went blind. A flashgrenate went off. Panic grew. An explosion sounded. There was a breach in the side of the White Tower. The guards went after the terrorists, which got picked up by a car. A pursuit was the result. An hour later the terrorists were taken prisoner by the police in a blockade.

    A month ago the offices where the Voice of Rimroth is being made, is bombed by criminals, or terrorists. This is not yet known, but it's being examined. The reason why the Voice of Rimroth hasn't released anything was because of this incident. One carbomb exploded in front of the building, and one from the inside. A man carried it around his chest. The front wall of the building collapsed. 7 People are dead, crushed under the wall, and 37 people are wounded, 2 people had crushed limbs, but are stil alive. The office is being repaired. If the Voice of Rimroth releases another newspaper this month is uncertain, because the building isn't safe enough to work in, and another building can not be found, because of the big amount of companies that settled in Rimroth-City over the last ten years. Also because of the wounded empleyees.

    Two days ago, on Farindar-square, a 5 metre high christmas-tree was placed, to cheer up the place, and because of the christmasspirit. Because of the storms which rased over the country yesterday, the tree collapsed, and crushed two cars. No-one is wounded, because it was night, and most of the people were asleep. A crane is now on the square, cleaning up the rubbish. A new tree will be placed next wednesday, and it will be extra secured, just to be sure.

    The Rimrothian Parliament has discussed an important subject this week. There have been complaints about the Rimrothian flag. People wanted it to change. Over 25 million citizens have signed. "Never before has anything like this happened." says historian Philip North, "The flag of Rimroth has always been the same, blue with a white cross in the middle." The flag has been revealed today, on Town Hall Square, in Rimroth city. A large crowd of over 20.000 people gathered there, to see the Baron, Giesel Farindar, pull of the canvas, and hoist the flag. The result was a large applause. The old flags will be replaced by the new one this week.
    A group of 30 well known Rimrothian artists made the flag, under watchful eye of government official men. After 4 days of drawing, tearing up paper, and throwing that in the general direction of the litter bin, it is finally finished.

    The White Cross in the middle is still present, but a grey, and a red cross are added in the White Cross. The New Cross is also added in the corners of the flag. The border of the flag is now gold-yellow. But the most important addition to the new flag, is the national animal of Rimroth: the Dire-Wolf, Canis dirus.

    For over 16 decades the Rimrothian parliament debated in the Tugurium in Rimroth-City. The building is not in a good status and needs restoring. "I really like the building," says minster Dunham, "but it seems we have to debate somewhere else." The building which is being prepared to be debated in over the last months is the old Aedificium. This was the building were the members of parliament used to debate, before the Tugurium was being used. It is unknown if the members of parliament return to the Tugurium when it's restored, or they have to stay in the Aedificium. The Restoring of the Tugurium will be done by the partly Inimician, partly Rimrothian Niervaert Industries. They are known the most for their work on the Rora-bridge which they built in 1992.

    Today the parliament debated, and decided that the Space Program needs more funding, so more money will be invested in that. "RASA wants a moonbase, but there isn't enough money for that, however it is already built." says minister of Science Jan Goossens, "so we are going to do that. The kosmonauts will leave for the moon somewhere this week."
    Also the parliament decided that more money will be invested in defence. The Airforce will become a lot more extensive. The Armada also will get more ships. The Military Service personnell doubled. "This is quite good for the economy," says economist Peter Rowland, "a lot of new jobs will become available. And you don't need to be worried. The taxes aren't going up."

    Today, some marvellous news has been announced by the Baron's official spokesman, Lee Enfield: "We all know the Farindar-bloodline stretches back to the middle-ages. Lyandrus Farindar was born in 1230 AD. Giesel Farindar needs to have an heir for the Rimrothian leadership, according to one of the manuscripts from Edward Farindar's (1781 - 1838), which are in the Rimrothian National Museum. These manuscripts have influenced the current Rimrothian law greatly. Giesel Farindar doesn't have a wife, and has been trying to find love since a clouple of years. Hidden from the press he has done so roughly a year back. Her name is Mary Sterling. It's marvellous news, because they are going to marry!"

    The wedding will be held on 24 may. In honour of the Baron and his fiancee a parade will be held. A great attendance is expected because the Baron and his fiancee will be in the parade, in the back of a limousine convertible. The parade will be going to the Holy Cathedral on Koevoet Square in Rimroth-City for the actual ceremony.

    Since 1938 zeppelins are forbidden to be used as Public Transport in Rimroth. Then was decided that zeppelins were too dangerious to be used because the balloon was filled with hydrogen, which is highly flammable. The Niervaert Transport Department has been working for the past 7 years to be able to build safer zeppelins, so that they can be used again. "Zeppelins are highly efficient, and therefore an excellent method of public transport," says Hendrik Swinstead.
    "Also, they do not harm the environment." The Parliament has agreed on legalising zeppelins if they are built according to the new regulations. If all goes well, zeppelins will be used later this year for inland flights.

    Starting today and continuing over the course of the next 3 days is the annual "Old-timer Langerbeynring Race Tournement" or OTLRT for short. Participating are cars produced between 1955 and 1985. The cars are participating in different classes, according to the decennium in which they are built. Large numbers of spectators were present today, and an even bigger croud is expected tomorrow, unless everyone goes to the Baron's wedding of course.
    We got the chance to interview Brandon Gambon, winner of the 1955-1964 class. "It's a really great to have won the race, most if it can be credited to my 1963 Ford Galaxie though." says Gambon "The other racers were great too. We all had a good laugh during and afterwards the race."
    Tomorrow the 1965-1974 class will race their laps. The whole event is being broadcasted by RTV2 so you can watch it there from around half past ten in the morning.

    Yesterday was a great day for the Rimrothians. The Baron got married to Mary Sterling.

    The day begun with the Baron and his soon-to-be wife on the back of a nice open car, in a parade. The National Fanfare played the Rimrothian Anthem during the parade, and they were followed by the car with the Baron and his fianc?e. A lot of people were watching from the sides of the road, and from the windows of the Rimroth-City high street. The parade went to the Cathedralis Sancti Spiritus for the ceremony. All of the ministers were present during the ceremony. "It was a great day." says minister Henning Frandsen. "It was a great day for the Baron, his wife, and the whole nation. Once again the future of Rimroth has been secured." After the wedding, the Baron held a speech to a crowd of approximately 4000 people. During dusk, in the evening, a firework show was displayed.

    This morning Inquistian Troops occupied the Western Sahara. The nation of Inquista created a committee to transition the occupied land to a peaceful state so the Saharans have a home again. The Committee for Western Saharan Autonomy also includes Saharan and Rechroatian experts. After the possibility appeared that more nations would rally to Marrakechian aid, the Baron and his military advisors have dicided that Rimroth should join the Committee to help the Saharans. The Rimrothian Army has mobilised and is on its way to the Western Sahara. We got a chance to speak with the Baron this afternoon about the matter at hands. "The Saharan people have suffered long enough, and I don't like to see suffering, and I think I speak for the entire nation. We want to ensure they are safe." says Baron Giesel Farindar. "Also I think that our neighbours Inquista and Red Croatia should be given a hand to ensure a mutual good future."

    The Rimrothian Army has entered the Western Sahara yesterday evening, or the Sahrawi Union as it is now called. The Army set up camp this night, and are now helping the civilians in every way they can. Distributing food and health-care where they can. An airbridge is iniated so food and medical supplies can be flown in. The Baron and the Council has decided it will continue to do so for the next months, and maybe longer. "We want to ensure the safety of the Saharan people alongside our allies." adds James Atkins, military advisor of the Baron.

    Emperor Artabanos of Inimicus has been kidnapped on his visit in Rimroth-City. After hearing about this the Baron and his military advisors, and the ministers of Defense, Foreign Affairs, and Safety organised an emergency meeting to discuss the current matters at hand. After debating for a long time the meeting is willing to cooperate with the Inimician Forces that have entered Rimroth. However, the Rimrothian government isn't pleased about the military movement that has not got permission. The Rimrothian Police Forces are searching every house in Rimroth-City and a nation-wide alert has been aired via television. "We would very much like to consult about this matter with the Inimician Government." says military Advisor Patrick Pertwee. "We need a solution with which both goverments will be pleased. The Military Council has agreed that it is not acceptable that Inimician Forces are entering Rimroth without Rimrothian consult. We want to assure both Inimician and Rimrothian people that the Rimrothian Government is not cooperating with terrorists."

    EMERGENCY SITUATION
    Inimicus has declared war on the Barony of Rimroth this evening on the accusations that Rimrothian Military leaders are cooperating with terrorirists. Baron Giesel Farindar appeared in an emergency broadcast to keep the nation calm. "We, as a government, would like to assure you that you are safe, and well defended. The Rimrothian Army is defending Rimroth-City at all costs. We want to assure you that the accusations are false." said the Baron in the broadcast.

    Because of this situation the search for Emperor Artabanos continued with even more men, so this conflict can be solved quickly as possible. And with succes! Emperor Artabanos has indeed been found in Rimroth-City. The Rimrothian Special Forces have invaded the terrorist-hideout. First aid was needed, Emperor Artabanos was not in a very good shape. He is now treated by the best doctors Rimroth has to offer. Baron Giesel Farindar and the Rimrothian Government want to assure the Inimicians that Emperor Artabanos will be fine, and escorted back to Inimician Forces as quickly as possible so the Inimician Troops can return to their homes.

    The terrorist hide-out was full of computers and advanced hacking software. Nuntius Inimici spoke of telephone calls between Rimrothian Military Leaders and another men, about "a package" found in classified top-secret dossiers. The Inimicians assumed this was Emperor Artabanos. "These telephone calls could very well be forged." says master hacker Barthold Alvardsson. "This would require voice-recordings of our military leaders." An investigation is started to find out if this is possible or not. Nuntius Inimici also spoke of radio silence. This could also be the work of the hacking terrorists, according to Alvardsson."We need to prove those phone-calls are not made by Rimrothian Military Leaders, to prove our innocence." says Patrick Pertwee, military Advisor of the Baron.

    Inimicus and Rimroth have always been on good terms with each other. A large portion of Rimrothian Trade is done with Inimicus. Both nations worked on the same Spacestation. Niervaert. Inc, constructs and produces half of everything you can see in Rimroth and Inimicus, and is of vital importance to both nation's economies. "We would like to see this restored again." says Baron Giesel Farindar. "I have a final question for the Inimicians to think about: why would we harm this relationship? Why would we kidnap the Emperor? The disadvantages of damaging this relationship outweigh the advantages!"
