Published on the week of Febuary 7th to Febuary 13th in the year of 2011. First official Caribbean Gazette publication.
This week, on the Pirates Of The Caribbean Online Player's Wikia, there has been a major outbreak, just like in current day Egypt, the wikia had few small protests, which were ended by Piplupower, the president of this wiki that Stpehen shall not be kicked off the squad of administrators, bureacurats, or rollbacks! Originaly, the community was mad that Stpehen got away with everything and was abusing his admin, bureaucrat, and rollback abilities, but then in exchange to keep the 1st and 2nd Petition on the 1st User's Assmebly page, he was given full amnesty, also known an an official pardon. Later that day, Stpehen made an Official Apology blog, which states he apologizes.

Blackbeard's Sword Found
It's likely Edward Teach didn't need much to scare his enemies. After all, the notorious pirate better known as Blackbeard boasted a thick mass of facial hair so intimidating that it got immortalized in history.
He also numbered among the first corsairs to fly a black flag with bones on it. And, according to some accounts, he had a habit of lighting fuses beneath his hat, a halo of smoke giving the bristly sea dog a decidedly demonic aspect.
But archaeologists now suspect they've found one more clue behind the pirate's menace: what could very well be Blackbeard's sword, or at least part of it. National Geographic published photos released by a team that has for over a decade been excavating the Queen Anne's Revenge, which was Blackbeard's flagship until it ran aground in an inlet off the coast of North Carolina in 1718. These include fragments of a gilded hilt and pommel, possibly of French design (Blackbeard's ship was a retrofitted French merchant vessel). The shipwreck has been worked on since 1997. Before abandoning the Queen Anne's Revenge, Blackbeard used it in a daring 1717 blockade of the port of Charleston, S.C, where he and his fleet successfully managed to obtain ransom from the British colonial government for the town and its inhabitants. But troops dispatched from Virginia would eventually catch up to him — after he had already abandoned his flaghsip — and in a fearsome sea fight Blackbeard was eventually surrounded and hacked to death.His headless body was then tossed into the ocean.The pirate may now languish in Davy Jones' Locker, but his likely blade may have been brought to light — further evidence of how Blackbeard's bite was as bad as his bark.
An EITC Update
On 2/9/11, something very interesting happened. Johnny Goldtimbers, the father of Captian Leon, and the disputed Co-head of the EITC, surrendered to Robert Mcroberts and his Army. The events leading up to this began when news of Francis Bluehawk quitting reached the shores of the Caribbean. John Breasly, an important ally of Johnny, was given credit for this. Members of the Soldiers of France, demanded retriubution for this. In an effort to eliminate Johnny Goldtimbers, or believed by some as an attempt to strengthen his Guild, Robert Mcrobets began hunting down Johnny with his new recruits from the Soldiers of France. An undisclosed spy in the Black Officers, gave directions to Robert and his forces repeatedly attacked Goldtimbers. Johnny eventually grew tired of this, and gave up. He quit the Black Officers, and resigned as Co head of the EITC, a claim under disupute. He then handed his sword of to Robert Mcroberts, who refused to accept it. Lieutenant Jack Cannonhawk of the Viceroyal Army accepted the sword of Johnny. It has since then been granted to it's creator, John Breasly, who has hidden it. It is currently unknown where the blade lies. Only John Breasly claims to know.
