Daily Prophet, Issue 16

I think this latest post ever for the Daily Prophet. Everyone in my house is sick except me and 2 of the girls. Well, I think that my body is fighting it, but I definitely don't feel as well today as I did yesterday. I'm drinking lots of peppermint tea, though!!

I just wanted to calm the fears of those that have not received any communication from their swap partners as of yet. Be sure to drink some Drought of Peace. I and the prefects are working double-time in order to keep in contact with everyone so that we will know long before the deadline if your partner is in fact not fulfilling their duties.

With that said, anyone who is found not participating over a 2 week consecutive span of time will be dropped from the swap.

House Points
Unfortunately, there was a loss in communication between me and one of the Gryffindor house members. This changed the points from the previous weeks, so they have been adjusted. I know this may cause a little stress on your parts, but after today I believe that all inconsistencies have been discovered.

Hogwarts Happenings
The Goblet of Fire

The age line is no longer a part of the decision making - at least not during this round of Quidditch. So first years will be able to join in the fun. The weighing of the wands has taken place and many have put their best want forward for the challenge.

The first challenge - Dragons - will take place during the first round of Quidditch next week. The Snitch is the main focus of next week's game, but there will also be a Golden Egg which will leave a clue as to what may take place during the second round of Quidditch - the second challenge.

A Moment of Silence for a Great Actor
Heath Ledger was found dead this morning of an apparent drug overdose. Please - a moment of silence for a great actor.

I am so sad about Heath Ledger. I wasn't his biggest fan or anything, but what a waste, so sad.

I am completely astonished by Heath Ledger's death. My thought are with his family and baby girl (aka mini heath)

I am terribly suprised by Heath Ledger's death. His family and little girl are in my thoughts and prayers.
