Hello, again. I'm back, with some very interesting news today. First of all, I'm very disappointed that The Boredom Buster Podcast Episode 8 has not come out yet. I contacted Noah and Hallie about when it would come out, but they haven't answered me back, and Noah hasn't been on The Soda Shop, either. Oh, well. Okay, I guess I'd better get to the big news.

***Excuse me, Mister Judge? Yes, what is it, Simon? It's the Curtis case, sir, the jury wants an answer RIGHT NOW. Okay, thanks a lot, Simon, I'd better get down there. Could you do me a favor? Of course, sir, what is it? Watch my room for me. If anybody calls just take a message for me. Yes, sir. Thank you so much, Simon, I owe you one.***

***Hmm.... What is this? The Old Judge has a website? Twists and Turns.....exciting and indepth look.....blog....interesting news today....Ooh, he has notes on his desk. I don't think he'd mind. That's a good idea.***

Hello, everybody, I'm Simon Jones. I am an associate of The Old Judge. We both work at The Campbell County Courthouse. I've worked here for seven years, but I have no idea how long the Judge has worked here. Seriously, I've been very good friends with him for several years, and I have no idea what his name is. I don't know if he has a name. Okay, back to me. I have a wonderful wife of sixteen years named Dorothy, and two wonderful kids, Barrett and Emily.

Alex Jefferson has released his third installment of Adventures in Connellsville. Okay, I'm not going to lie. I have no idea what's going on. A website called Campbell County, something referencing Connellsville, I don't know. Maybe The Old Judge will explain it to me later. Anyway, according to the Judge's notes, this installment involves a hockey mask, a detective, tambourines, maracas, and ....the Mulligans? OH! They're those people between Odenton and Odyssey that own the zoo. Both The Old Judge and myself have held court cases with them. You can check that out at http://www.justanotheraioblog.blogspot.com/p/adventures-in-connellsville.html . Also, Alex has released a new U.S.S. Response, so go check that out.

Apparently, there is a brother and sister named Josh and Ally Ko who run an Odyssey blog called "Out of Control in Odyssey". Well, according to the Judge's notes, they have relased a review of "Family Portraits 01:Whit's Visitor". Also, in his notes, the Judge says that the reviews are divided into something called, "The Odyssey Times" (That's our newspaper.), that covers interesting facts about each episode, and the review itself. The link is http://odysseyoutofcontrol.blogspot.com/2012/07/fp-1-whits-visitor.html .

***Simon, I'm back. Did anybody call? No, sir. Thank you very much. My pleasure, sir. Oh, next time we meet I have some questions to ask you. Okay. Goodbye, Simon.***

***Hmm, I wonder what that was about. Well, time to get to TNT. Oh, look at that. Simon messed with my computer. Wow. He did good. I'm getting an idea.....***

Okay, I'm back. Just some miscellaneous news. "Cast & Crew: Take 2" will be up in a couple of weeks. And you can see part of the logo already up. It will be a cast and crew page, but for fans such as Jacob Isom, Brendon McFarlane, Austin Peachey, and others who are great assets to the Adventures in Odyssey online fan community. Also, I think Simon did good. Normally I don't ask you to comment, but if you could give me your opinions on Simon, that would be greatly appreciated. And don't forget to vote on AIO Websters. That's all for now, so stay tuned, and I hope you enjoy Twists and Turns!
