"Why I am a Hufflepuff"
by Cedric Diggory

You might belong in Hufflepuff,
Where they are just and loyal,
Those patient Hufflepuffs are true,
And unafraid of toil

There are those at Hogwarts, most probably, that say "yeah I belong in my house" but when I say those words I really mean them. I'm not sure if any students really come to Hogwarts expecting to be put into Hufflepuff, there are a few of us sure that know we belong in the House of Helga but I'd say 100% of us once we get here and get into the Common Room and meet the other Hufflepuff they know why they were put there. I grew up watching my Da work hard, I knew I'd follow in his footsteps. I watch out for the little guy, I'm loyal to my friends (some say to a fault but that's not a bag thing) and most tell me I'm a nice guy. I am a Hufflepuff because Hufflepuffs stand for something - we stand for whats right and good and we work hard for what we want but we play hard too. I can't imagine myself anywhere else but in Hufflepuff House. My mates and I have our differences yeah but we also know that we all have each others back when it comes to it. I'm a Hufflepuff and I'm proud of it.

They'll Be Missed: The Life of Rufus Scrimgeour
by Anonymous

In the days following the defeat of He Who Must Not Be Named, it was discovered that former Minister of Magic, Rufus Scrimgeour did not resign as we had been lead to believe. He was murdered. It is with great sorrow that we bring you this news, but it was a heroic death and he should be remembered for all the amazing things he did in life. He put up a fight against He Who Must Not Be Named himself and never gave up any information. He joined the Ministry as an Auror and soon rose to the position of Head of the Auror Office. He spent most of his life fighting Dark Wizards, and he fought the darkest of them all until the end. There will be a Memorial Service at Harper and Sons Funeral Home tomorrow at 6:00pm. It is rumored that even Harry Potter will be in attendance to pay his respects to the former minister.
