By Coma News staff Coma Elementary School invites local students to learn about nature and our delicate environment by signing up for the CES Green Team! For a small monthly fee of $25 children can join the Green Team that supervises care for the CES garden. In addition to valuable gardening skills so critical to living in a more sustainable way, participating students also will learn to identify and remove invasive species around the grounds that irresponsible humans have brought to our town, such as honey suckle plants. Boo! Green Team recruits also will master a range of skills critical to saving our environment, including mulching, weeding, lawn cutting, fence painting, light electrical work, toilet maintenance and so much more! When Green Team youth cadets have mastered these skills we'll take our love of the environment on the road and provide all manner of services around town (don't forget to have your parents sign the legal release forms)! Former Green Team cadet first class Chase Donovan described his experience as "cool." So join the fun, kids! And remember parents, signing your kids up for a one year commitment to the Green Team is really the least you can do to keep the planet from melting down and killing us all. Long Live Green Team!

Dr. Jimmy, Coma physician, cancelled a highly anticipated LARPing duel with Town Councilmember Bob Smith-Smith shortly after it began due to “unfair hitting in the back when [he] wasn’t ready and not following the dang LARPing rules.”
“It was not cool at all because I clearly yelled ‘hold,’ and he hit me in the back when I wasn’t expecting it,” Dr. Jimmy said. “That’s not legal. And then he acted like he did something great.”
According to spectators, the entire duel lasted less than one minute. After Dr. Jimmy made a series of opening moves that some said resembled jumping jacks or modified calisthenics, Smith-Smith tapped his foam-wrapped “sword” onto Dr. Jimmy’s shoulder. The physician quickly called “hold,” which is the larping equivilant of a time out. But Smith-Smith attacked again, landing a blow on Dr. Jimmy’s back.
Dr. Jimmy grimaced as he left the larping circle and claimed he could not continue because his back “stung like a bitch” and he would not continue dueling with someone who so flagrantly violated the rules of LARPing.
The duel challenge, which Dr. Jimmy issued to Smith-Smith at last week’s Town Council meeting, attracted nearly a dozen spectators. Smith-Smith did not comment afterwards but did fist bump several spectators.
Dr. Jimmy would not comment beyond mumbling that Smith-Smith had not heard the last from him.
