The President’s Pardon for the Thanksgiving Turkey

The President of the United States has the power to pardon people found guilty of crimes – to forgive the crimes, and free them from punishment. But once a year, the President issues a different kind of pardon. It goes to a U.S. resident who has committed no crimes but was meant to die – a turkey.

Every year, before Thanksgiving, one or two live turkeys are given to the White House. (In recent years, there have always been two.) At a ceremony in the Rose Garden, the President announces that these turkeys will never be killed and eaten. Then they’re sent to a farm or a park, or somewhere else they can live out their lives.

A Fierce Firestorm Raging wildfires sweep through Southern California

by Claudia Atticot (source: TIME for kids)

Fast-moving wildfires devoured hundreds of homes and buildings in four counties in Southern California in recent days. So far, more than 20,000 residents have been evacuated. Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has declared a state of emergency.

Total Devastation

Record heat and low humidity coupled with strong, dry Santa Ana winds gusting up to 75 miles per hour fanned flames from Los Angeles to three neighboring counties. Riverside County was the hardest hit.
