Super Storm Sandy
Super Storm Sandy crashed into the New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, and Rhode Island shorelines last week. This storm brought a 10 foot storm surge in many states, and left 8.6 million people without power. This storm devastated much of the Eastern United States, and left much destruction, but the National Guard and other first responders showed up immediately and have begun to fix the damage that has been created. We hope our country can recover quickly.

Election 2012
Mitt Romney faced off against incumbent Barack Obama last Tuesday in the general election. Barack Obama, who is big on government programs and funding, made his case over the last couple of months, but Mitt Romney also told the world about his theories, which include lowering taxes, spending, and government regulation. Although a very close election was expected, Barack Obama won many key states by a small margin to win the Electoral College by a margin of 332 to 206. The Democrats, Barack Obama’s party, retained control of the senate, and the Republicans, Mitt Romney’s party, retained control of the House of Representatives. This was a long, difficult election, but the balance of power in Washington has stayed the same.
