Episode Summary

This Just In! (Alabama)
When a local TV station sponsors a contest for a news story, Mr. Ratburn turns it into an opportunity for his students to get some extra-credit. Mighty Mountain is also entering, so the competition seems to be fierce. The kids have few good ideas about what to do for the contest, which requires a "human interest story," so they turn to Buster in Alabama for help. The idea for a story about auto-racing quickly fizzles when Buster discovers that that it's the off-season and so there's nobody racing at the Talladega Superspeedway. The kids remember a suggestion by Marina and send Buster to the Alabama School for the Blind. There, Buster searches desperately for an exciting story with high-stakes, but discovers that sometimes a journalist doesn't need to manufacture news, he just needs to keep his senses open.moreless
