Judy Morgan visited Lincoln Elementary School to gather information for a newspaper article.  She was a reporter for the Westfield Gazette.  She had heard about the big stir that the word "frindle" was causing.  Judy asked who she should talk to about the issue, and was informed that she should speak to Mrs. Chatham, the principal.  

Mrs. Chatham tried to brush off the frindle issue as if it were nothing big when Judy Morgan mentioned it.  She laughed it off:

"'Oh, that? It's nothing really. Some kids have been playing a prank, and it was time to put a stop to it.'"

Judy Morgan pressed the issue.  She did not quite believe Mrs. Chatham.  The reporter asked if the prank was over.  Mrs. Chatham hesitantly told her that it was not.  She implied that Mrs. Granger's handling of the issue may have been an overreaction.  She said that the students were "just having some fun."
