A team that has not won a World Series since 1908 are now the 2016 World Series Champions! Let me tell you about their season of 2016! They had a 103-58 record in the regular season. They beat the Cardinals, Pirates, Reds and Brewers in their division called NL Central. Then they went to the play-offs. At the National League Division Series (NLDS) they were playing the San Francisco Giants. They won that series with the giants only winning 1 game in a short series. Then in the National League Championship Series (nlcs) they played the Los Angeles Dodgers. That series was not as easy as the NLDS. But, they still won that series. Then it was the World Series. They were playing the Cleveland Indians. The Indians had lost one game in total in the other series. The cubs had a tough time in the first game losing 6 - 0. But that did not stop the cubs. They went all the way to the 7th and last game of the series. The cubs had won 7 - 6. The Cubs have finally won the World Series!

Our New President Tyler Q.
The polls are in, and our president is Donald Trump!. Our new president is Donald Trump, and there is some commotion about it! Many states have upset citizens who feel that Trump has no “experience”, or his presidency is a “comic book”. Others are very happy.
Trump won by 1.2%, according to Heavy News. Some people are very upset. Since Trump is a businessman, and they feel he has no political experience whatsoever. That is probably the main concern. But another main concern is about his views on migrants and refugees, according to Cruxnow.
Trump also has several supporters. These supporters are in scattered along the United States of America. The West has a lot of Trump supporters. One reason that people support Donald Trump is because he has a powerful message and he promises to fix the economy. Trump promises to build a wall to stop illegal immigrants from Mexico. This project is a multi-billion dollar project. Many feel that this will probably not be accomplished in his eight or less years.
Subsequently, Trump is our new president. Let’s see what will happen in his term!
