Editorial & Opinions by Dawn Nettles

-------------------------

April 22, 2017 - A couple of thing to say or share with you today. But first, NO, there is no ruling from
the Appeals Court. They have no deadlines or timeframes - that's the rule of the law. But when there is
a ruling, I will post it immediately for ya'll.

The other day I read a very interesting bio on Manfred Sternberg. As I read it, it occurred to me that I don't think
I ever gave ya'll any personal information about Manfred. For that, I'm truly sorry. I should have told ya'll more about
our attorney's in the beginning. Anyway, I wanted to share his "life history" with ya'll so you can see the "human"
side of him - not just the "attorney" side. As you read it, you'll see how much he cares about what's in the
best interest of the People and I think you'll understand why he came to our rescue several years ago.
Click here to read Manfred's bio.

One last comment about Manfred .... anyone who spends their valuable time taking a service dog to a hospital to help
comfort others, speaks volumes about character. How fortunate can Texas Lottery players be in having such a human
being speaking for us?

Regarding Richard LaGarde - I think you've all come to know Richard quite well as he's given us all an insight through his
journey with leukemia. It takes courage to share his most intimate details - I can only imagine the thousands of
people he has helped with his writings.

I feel compelled to comment on one of Richard's latest postings - he titled it "Chemo Brain." He's describing
side effects which has to do with memory. Well, I've not had chemo but I can assure you that what he
described happens to me EVERY day without fail!!!

I realize there's nothing funny about side effects of chemo, but sometimes you just have to have a sense of humor.
He says that he gets up to go do something but forgets what he was going to do and why he got up. That's
not really funny but it happens to me at least 10 times per day and he described me very well!

Richard is strong - very strong - and he has a tremendous sense of humor. I hope that by sharing my
lack of memory will help him feel better. In his case, his memory will improve .... but mine .... well, I'm
just not sure my memory will ever get better!

Maybe Richard or Manfred will send me some personal info about Mark Lanier so I can share his
human side with ya'll too. And hopefully, the next time I write something, it'll be that the Appeals Court
issued an opinion.

Jan 24, 2017 - I know it feels like we've been forgotten, but that's far from the truth. In the Austin case,
oral testimony was given to the Appeals Court on October 26, 2016 so we're just waiting for the court to
issue their opinion. Everything stands still until that decision is given.

In my case, the 5th Court of Appeals heard oral testimony on Jan 11, 2017. So again, we can't move
forward until they issue their opinion.

I know many of you would like to know more about what goes on or what's said during oral arguments.
In Dallas, the Court posts a recording online of the actual hearing. If you would like to hear the arguments,
click here. Scroll down to "Case Events," then click on the January 11, 2017 link that's described
"Submitted." with an extension of "mp3/7158." You should find listening to the attorneys first hand
of great interest. The hearing was about 55 minutes long so that's how long the recording is.

As I write this message, the link is second on the list.

After you hear each argument presented, then you should read the "Post Submission" made to the
court. You can either click my link or the one on the courts page right above the "Submitted."

I am of the belief that the courts will do the right thing and hold G-Tech accountable. Clearly G-Tech
should not be entitled to sovereign immunity. - in my humble opinion - of course.

Ya'll be patient, that's the only thing you can do. We are at the mercy of the courts and so are
our attorneys. Have faith - Justice WILL Prevail!

-----------------

Dec 11, 2016 - On Oct 26, 2016, oral arguments were heard by the Appeals Court in Austin
with regard to G-Tech claiming they have Sovereign Immunity and can NOT be sued. I firmly
believe the courts will NOT give G-Tech immunity. Consumers have rights but G-Tech thinks
otherwise. We are currently awaiting the courts decision.

In my case in Dallas, oral arguments will be heard in January 2017.

Neither case will move forward until the immunity issued is settled once and for all. We have the
finest attorneys representing us and I do believe we will prevail in the end. G-Tech has deep pockets
and will continue to drag this out as long as they can. Let's just hope that the courts do the
same thing to G-Tech as they did to Donald Trump. In November, the courts refused to
allow Trump to stall (postpone) his case again. This was the case where folks sued over
Trump's University.

Interestingly, as we all know, Mr. Trump settled quickly rather than to go to trial at that time.
To me, this is a sign of guilt!

More later.
