The Turnurst Times is an online newspaper that is produced every other Friday. It is created by Jordan T., age 9, and Jacob S., age 9. They started making books in second grade when they were in the same class. They were inspired to make a newspaper when Jacob read The Landry News by Andrew Clements. They wanted to make a website because they thought it would be cool to see something they made online. They made a website for the newspaper to save paper and ink. The newspaper interacted with the third grade students at Matoaka Elementary School, where Jacob and Jordan go.
