I always smile when i see Tim and Eric media on the atlas. I've got the bourbon in hand and I can't decide whether the right has collapsed or if the left has just turned out big early.

And guess what's finally official?

This is a great day for the South and I'll be having a party at the Governor's mansion on Whiskey Wednesday. Y'all can come and bring your favorite brands, but we're going to provide Jack Daniels from Tennessee and moonshine from various providers in North Carolina.

I'd like to congratulate all the winners of these elections, y'all ran honorable campaigns and I hope each and every one of you do good things for your region (or in Bore/BK's case, the country).

I've been notified of some deeply disturbing developments;  our census files have been taken from a Memphis facility. This is unacceptable on behalf of our government, and I must apologize that our security was too weak to see criminals walk in and steal these documents. I'm ordering an investigation, with help from Memphis Police Chief Toney Armstrong and with help from President Lumine's best federal detectives. I've alerted police chiefs all across our region, from Elizabeth City, North Carolina to San Juan, Puerto Rico about the criminals and the consequences that these people will face if the documents aren't obtained quickly enough.

In the meantime, I need all citizens to contact local police if they suspect someone in their town has these documents. I'll be introducing legislation soon to the Southern Legislature to increase security in government offices.

I thank each and every one of you for your time and for your efforts in locating these documents.

As some of you may know, I received an anonymous letter last night from the criminals that stole the Southern census files, and they demanded that in order for these stolen census files not to be destroyed, I'd have to pay them $200,000. Attached to the letter was one of the stolen census files, this one in particular was on Alana Thompson, a nine year old from Georgia. As most know of y'all know, I issued an order earlier today to federal investigators to determine the location of this criminal and for local police to blockade roads 100 miles away from whichever city the criminal came from, and he was right in our backyard. Six miles from our capital in Memphis, the criminal was arrested in his car, and it was found that he held about half of the documents in his vehicle.

This does not mean that the job is over, we're only just beginning the search and recovery for these missing files. This was a lucky strike for us, but there is a mastermind behind this, and I'd like to tell him or her this.

[Southern authorities will find you and prosecute you for these crimes against our region and against all of these innocent people, and we will not stop this search until we find you.

With the arrest of Mr. Adams, there is further need for celebration in the south this Whiskey Wednesday. I'd like to congratulate the officers in their finding of Mr. Adams, and although we must still be on high alert, we are in high spirits (which is exactly what we're having tonight)!

Join #flo for discussions about the Neighborhood Teacher Act or the Complete Streets Act, about the incoming Bore presidency, or Cranberry's sick burn on Potus.

Neighborhood Teacher Act

Purpose
The Neighborhood Teacher program is intended to prepare highly skilled, committed teachers who will teach in high-poverty schools and who will commit to remain in these schools for substantial periods of time.

Neighborhood Teacher
1. The South will establish a Neighborhood Teacher college scholarship  that aims to provide four-year college scholarships and government support to low-income high school seniors who are committed to teach in their district's high-need public schools.

Scholarship
1. The Neighborhood program shall provide four-year scholarships of $8,200 per year to select high school seniors who graduated from a public high school in the South, were eligible for free or reduced price lunch throughout their four years of high schools, commit to (within two years after college graduation) to teach for four years at a public school where at least 45% of students qualify for free or reduced lunch, and is in the same state where they graduated high school.

2. The scholarships shall be provided through a competitive application process. To select scholarship recipients, the Southern Legislature shall designate a committee of highly-qualified people who reflect the socioeconomic diversity of the district’s high-poverty schools.

3. The minimum GPA requirement for students applying to the Neighborhood program shall be a 2.5.

4. In the event that any scholarship recipient fails or refuses to comply with the teaching obligation under subsection 1, the sum of the amounts of any scholarships received by such recipient shall be converted to a loan and be subject to repayment with interest. The interest will accrue from the date of the initial scholarship award, in accordance with terms and conditions specified by the administrator organization. The scholarship administrator may establish provisions for partial forgiveness of the loan if the recipient partially but does not fully fulfill his or her teaching obligation.

Appropriations
1. The number of scholarships available each year will be based upon an annual appropriation by the Southern Legislature.

Effective Date
1. This law shall become effective on July 1, 2016.

Complete Streets Act

1. Bicyclists and pedestrians are prohibited by law from using the street or facility. In this instance, a greater effort may be necessary to accommodate bicyclists and pedestrians elsewhere within the right of way or within the same transportation corridor.
2. The minimum size for a city to be included in this project will be 250,000 persons as of the latest census estimate.
3. Scarcity of population or other factors show there's no need to construct bike and walk ways, with consideration given to future population growth. The design and development of the transportation infrastructure shall improve conditions for bicycling and walking through the following additional steps:

Planning Projects for the Long Term
Transportation facilities are long-term investments that remain in place for many years. The design and construction of new facilities that meet the criteria in the above stated exemption conditions should anticipate likely future demand for bicycling and walking facilities and not preclude the provision of future improvements. For example, a bridge that is likely to remain in place for 50 years might be built with sufficient width for safe bicycle and pedestrian use in anticipation that facilities will be available at either end of the bridge even if that is not currently the case.

Addressing the Need for Travel Corridors
Even where bicyclists and pedestrians may not commonly use a particular travel corridor that is being improved or constructed, they will likely need to be able to cross that corridor safely and conveniently. Therefore, the design of intersections and interchanges shall accommodate bicyclists and pedestrians in a manner that is safe, accessible and convenient.

Exemptions
Exemptions regarding the installation of bike and walk ways will be approved by a Complete Streets Committee and be documented with supporting data that indicates the basis for the decision.

Designing Facilities
The design of facilities for bicyclists and pedestrians should follow design guidelines and standards that are commonly used by the Atlasian government.

Oh, and if anyone's interested serving as Judicial Overlord, please message me your application! If PiT is elected, we'll need a new person. (There's not much to do since nobody throws lawsuits around)

I'd like to congratulate Legislators Duke and X for their re-election, and for the Judicial Overlord PiT winning the seat being vacated by Maxwell. There was a voter turnout of 72% which is nothing to scoff at!

Now with the election of PiT, I have been asking qualified Southerners to serve as our Judicial Overlord, and I am announcing that I am nominating the former Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Atlasia, TexasGurl, as our Judicial Overlord.

From what I understand, the Legislature will vote on her nomination, and I encourage all Legislators to vote in favor (because you really can't be in better hands than with a former Chief Justice)! Cheesy

Thank you all very much!

Apparently all you need is a nomination and an acceptance, so I'm very pleased to say that TexasGurl will be the Judicial Overlord of the South!
