about ail those people they've laid off,

people who gives us fans when its hot
blow, ifOld Wiz gits to feeling
sony here for someone, its going to be
for our people going without their
jobs and their fans, and our
government who will have to do
without some boxes.
As for my cousin McKeithen. I'd
have to say that I've beard Keetar

go out and find someone else to go
fishing with cause Keeta has gone
eloquent Thats just the way it goes
some times. Miss Connee
But, Miss Billieisout there looking

to painting their roads yellow and
But. I'd have to say one thing for
you. Miss Coonee. you're on a one
way street, according to Miss BiIIk
At least, you know where you're
headed, and I cant say tbere'sa yellow
streak running down that road you're
on. like some Miss Billie travels on.
But Old Wiz ain't worried about
yellow roads, or blue ones, or wizards.
Miss Conner He's more worried
about that nightmare on East Third
Street Pembroke
And. speaking of the Emerald C ity.
Miss Billie forgot all of us Munchkins.
you know who they are. Miss Connee
That's us little people. Miss Billie
don't feel sorry for us Munchkins.
Miss Connee But. everybody ain't
like Miss Billie They ain't needing
the house to fall on them to git the
message But. Old Wiz knows what
their problem is. Miss Connee They
just ain'[t wanting to give up them
ruby slippers to go back to wearing

to produce the stories.

their young listeners.

the community . The date and time for
the vole has been set. Now. it is op to
the people to decide
Being pad of the process to bring
this document before the people has
been a wonderfully enlightening
experience for me I have had the
opportunity 10 witness, first hand, the
wisdom, concern and love of our
people As a delegate. I have seen
folks rise to the occasion and put the
needs of the people above the wants of
the tew in power. Now . it is up to the
people to decide
Unfortunately. Ihave also seen the
greed and selfishness of some. I have
received afotmal schooling in business
politics. Lumbee style I have been
subjected to the many different
agendas of various groups and
individuals. I have watched in
twia to get the* way regardless of
.?ll.U 1 In f>CO|>lc WiUlt
Now. the constitution is complete
and ike vole is at hand I expect
different groups to try to dtscred* and
disrupt the election bv 'any means
necessaryThe election ofoc against
the constitution is just the first step hi
the fight to form a tribal government
for our people
To elect a fonn of gov eminent or a
person to office is one of the
fundamental rights of our people as
Americans nd more importantly as
Native Americans live only way to
change the political atmosphere is hi
register and vote.
For the first time in the history ol
this county, we as a people have the
opportunity to elect our own sheriff
Take the time to get registered so you
can cast your vote m the upcoming
historical sheriff's race Don't just
tead about history, register, vote and
be part of history Be patt of the
people who decide
