KINGSTON FALLS - Today city leaders used the new "Rake symbol" to summon the city's new heros. There was speculation on whether or not the new symbol would be able to be effective in summoning the new heros during the day. "We also have established a direct line of communication with Rakeman", police chief Dwight Yokum said in a recent press conference, "There is a phone in my office that connects directly to Rakeman."

The city was anxious to try the new system and was crossing its fingers for its success. At 11:36am, Big City got its chance. Little Lisa Beaty of the Kingston Falls neighborhood called the local fire department to ask for help.

"My kitty is stuck in the tree", Lisa says in the recording of the call she made to the fire department. Unfortunately, the fire brigade was already busy fighting the fire at Charo's Wax Museum on 38th street. "We just had nobody to send to help", dispatcher Sheila Smalton said.

So Sheila did the best thing she could think of, she contacted the police chief. He too had no one to spare, so he summoned Rakeman. He arrived moments later at the police station where the Chief Yokum quickly told him what was happening. Without wasting a breath, he was off to save the cat. He arrived in front of Lisa Beaty's and greeted the crying little girl.

"He told me to not be afraid and that he was going to help Peppermint." Rakeman then used his rake to pick the small, frightened and nonchalant cat out of the tree and back into the waiting arms of Lisa. The entire event lasted no longer than ten minutes, which put to rest the fears of the town in the response time of our city's new hero.
