This chapter features the worst day in Whitevale's history.

Viewer discretion is advised.





As you can see, a lot as been going on in Whitevale. Here you can see the explosion from a McDonnell Douglas DC-9 coming in to land.


Here you can see the processing plants burning.


Immediately after the explosion, more than 50 firemen responded to the fire. It took the firemen 32 hours to put out the fire.


This is what the Burton Peek Coal Mine looked like after the fire was put out. The fire burnt hundreds of surrounding trees and almost destroyed the entire mine.


Buildings burnt down by the fire.


As for the mayor, he was buried at the local cemetery. His grave is the largest one in the middle. May Tim Plane the 12000th rest in peace.

The town is still looking for a new mayor.


Tim Plane the 12000th

1862 - 1945

You may have noticed that the pictures are now in Black & White. This is just for a change, and I'm trying to make the picturedsfit the time of the city journal.

Well, that's it for now.

Stay tuned for more about whitevale!

He died... 
Very good newspaper! May I suggest changing the ads to make them a bit more "retro-looking"? Apart from that, it's awsome!
