In Election News, the Great Region of Texas just complete the Second Trimester 2014 Elections. These were some great elections as usual! This Trimester, all Cabinet positions were uncontested. That means each and every candidate faced No Confidence all alone. Each and every one of them pulled out the win. It was really no shocker since we had all tried and true candidates with Texas Government experience longer than your arm. The Department of Counterbalance was closed this election and one of the former Secretaries, Trecdom moved into the Texas Representative Council. The other, Sweet Furry Kittens, is away presiding over her Sanctuary these days. In Texas Constitutional matters, we had three actions up for a vote. All were technical matter regarding the make up of the Texas Representative Council and the Cabinet and were about things like lines of succession. It was a grueling couple of weeks of rewriting the Constitution in the halls of the Texas Capitol. The Lieutenant Governor is to be commended for trying to aggregate everyone's suggestions into one cohesive bit of legislation. Texans returned to electing TRC members this Trimester. And, electing they did, creating a tie for the 8th and final position. So, we have nine TRC members this Trimester. We have a mix of old and new with several returning after long absences. HotRodia and Channelview are back as is Ewing Oil Co who has been away forever. Vlad of Llama City One has also been away from Texas politics for quite some time. The other four are old-time incumbents and are fixtures in the TRC.

Texas sent nine nations to the Summer Cross Regional Games in Wysteria. There were eight regions represented - Wysteria, 10000 Islands, Texas, Yggdrasil, Valhalla, Spiritus, Renegade Islands Alliance and Canada - and a total of 82 nations joined in the events! It was almost a month of fun, games and camaraderie. Records were set and World Records were broken. Texas, as a region, came in third by medal count. Texas received four Gold, two Silver and one Bronze medal. Lone Star Diplomatic Mission won the coveted Elisse Heroes Award for breaking a World Record and had a statue of Ezekiel Borntrager erected in the Herzil National Gardens! That is over and above the Gold medal he also won for that feat. It was some good action! NewTexas is quite proud of their Gold and Bronze medals earned by Hans & Franz, The Sausage Kings and Mini Me & Mr. Sparkles P. Pony in the Diving and Steeplechase events respectively. Kudos to Belli Lateralis of HotRodia and Captain Gavin Squall of Airship Armada for their Gold Medals in Steeplechase and Modern Pentathlon Shooting. Silver medals were won by Katie Spotz of Richard and Tojo St. Louis of Syd Vicious in the K-2 Mix Nations and Modern Pentathalon Marathon events! Texas Cheers to Herzil for hosting and administering the Games! They did a wonderful job! A great time was had by all.
