Today's Report Includes:
Show and Tell (...well almost)
How's everyone doing with your quest to figure out where the Mystery Sites are hiding? We're ready to show you another set of clues from your Mystery Friends. (Sorry they can't "tell" you anything more yet.)
Also, we have a special feature article below from the April 1st Latitude Sun Times Newspaper. We hope you'll find it "uplifting"!
Clues will be coming for just 3 more weeks. We'll tell you soon how to place your guesses, which will be due no later than April 28. Keep up the great work!
We thought you would enjoy reading an article from the early edition of tomorrow's April 1st Latitude Sun Times newspaper. The headlines read, "Latitude Shoes: New Invention Sweeps Across Earth":
No April Fooling
