               Excerpts from GWYNETH ROBERTS, Journal Star
               While running for the District 30 seat last fall, Don Schuller came up with an
            idea of an emblem that represents the Legislature. So he has taken an emblem he
            had created for his campaign — Republicans and Democrats working together
            — and is continuing to encourage unity....
                                             Both parties need to work together to go forward,
                                          Schuller said after the election. If the team isn't
                                          working together then the wagon doesn't go any-
                                             "I'm a strong believer in that. I'm an independent
                                          thinker," he said. "I'm a registered Democrat but I
                                          still believe in doing what's best for the people. And I
                                          know that's what the intent of the unicameral is."
               In the past few years, the country has been divided, he said. This emblem could
            portray an attitude of working together.
