9-Year-Old Pennsylvania Girl Makes National News


Hilde Lysiak caught the “news bug” early. Really early. Hilde is just 9-years-old and publishes her own newspaper, the Orange Street News. On Saturday, Hilde was the first reporter to arrive on the scene of a homicide.

“I’m working hard on this ongoing investigation,” exclaimed Hilde.

“She was just sitting there on the curb, looking across the street from the house, and she was taking notes in her spiral notebook, and she had a pencil through her hair, and she looked like a little reporter,” said Beth.

“That’s super fantastic! I just think it’s excellent. She’s very brave and very courageous. She should keep it up,” said April Graziano.

Hilde’s reporting didn’t impress everyone in Selinsgrove, and they let her have it on Facebook. So the 9-year-old decided to post another video, reading some of the nastiest comments.

“You are 9 “expletive” years old! What the “expletive” is wrong with you,” read Hilde.

In her response to the critics, Hilde says she has no desire to play with dolls or host tea parties.

“If you want me to stop covering news, then get off your computer and do something about the news! Is that cute enough for you,” said Hilde.
