Dementors spotted at Hogsmeade:
According to a young man, a Dementor was spotted – or at least felt- some nights ago in the town of Hogsmeade. The witness mentioned that ‘suddenly the air became to feel cold and any thought of happiness was gone’. Perhaps the Trolls guarding at Hogwarts doesn’t seem like an extreme measure anymore? Stay safe!
According to sources inside the Ministry of Magic, Minister Soo has been contacted by an individual going by the name “King Ragnuk XIV” in an attempt to open negotiations between goblins and the Ministry.
The Minister’s office has confirmed that the contact appears to be legitimate, however they have declined to comment further stating that they have no additional information to offer at this time.

Dueling Winter Open
Scathing weather gossip
A vicious snow storm has done its rounds across Britain this week, darlings, as witches, wizards, goblins and gargoyles fight tooth and nail to keep their feet firmly on the ground. But as many are forced to stay inside, through fear of losing their hats and wigs, like Dorothy in a whirring tornado, businesses in weathered villages like Hogsmeade suffer the consequences. Taffy Feathersweet, owner of Honeydukes, says that the snow has stopped her candies from setting. Blistering news! Aryiana Novelli, owner of Dervish and Banges, says that most of her sales are sent by owl, and that the deliveries have slowed down due to the hazardous conditions. Oh, the drama! But it’s not all travesties and tragedies, darling. A rather uninterested and unphased Bellamy Deauxchanson, owner of Flourish and Blotts, hadn’t even noticed the change in weather. Get your goods, darlings, and brave the storms! Your shops need you!
