ZAGREB, Croatia—A huge smiley face is on the front page, and politics and crime are banished. The leading daily in Croatia is publishing only good news for a day.

Alen Galovic, the executive editor of 24 Sata, says 2010 brought too much bad news and Thursday's edition "brings a little light and a bit of hope."

The paper published stories about the rescue of a trapped dog, a hairdresser who cuts orphans' hair for free and businessmen who defied the financial crisis.

Galovic says the appointment of new ministers and the seizure of paintings from an ex-prime minister suspected of corruption were being ignored for the day.

Some bad news managed to slip through, however: The horoscope still forecast trouble for people with some signs.
