Get latest blog entries from BlogTree sections

I have subclassed my website into small sections (BlogHolders) and big sections which include other blogHolders (BlogTree). I have an horizontal accordion showcase on homepage to show the latest four news entries, and each entry is from a specific blog holder or blog tree.

This is the structure of my website:

1. Home

2. Politics => BogHolder

3. Economie => BlogHolder

4. Culture => BlogTree

a. Local =>BlogHolder
b. Regional =>BlogHolder
c. Nationa =>BlogHolder

5. Sports => BlogTree

a. Local =>BlogHolder
b. Regional =>BlogHolder
c. Nationa =>BlogHolder

I tried something like the following to show the latest entry from a BlogTree but it doesn't work:

    function LatestNews($title) {
    $news = DataObject::get_one('BlogTree', "URLSegment = '$title'");
    return ($news) ? DataObject::get("BlogEntry", "ParentID = $news->ID", "Date DESC", "", 1) : false;

Any help on how can I get news from this structure?
