Student's Christmas Story to be Published in Local Paper

By Braden Coughlan

Blackville High School student Maddie Astle will be getting her Christmas story published in the Miramichi Leader. Her story is about a little boy whose father is in Afghanistan.

When asked what inspired her to write the story, she replied that it just kind of came to her.

She was very excited when she got the news because at first she thought that her sister had won the prize, but when she found out that it was her instead it made her that much happier.

Her English teacher, Mrs. Jennifer Underhill, is very proud of her.
