[Extensions of Remarks] [Page E2498] From the Congressional Record Online through the Government Publishing Office [www.gpo.gov] HONORING N.A. ``TURK'' BAZ ______ HON. LINCOLN DAVIS of tennessee in the house of representatives Monday, December 8, 2003 Mr. DAVIS of Tennessee. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to salute and honor Turk Baz. I have known Turk for many years, and he is a testament to the service, dedication, and diligence to his listeners on the local radio by providing daily weather updates. Turk, a veteran radio broadcaster and owner of WDEB FM/AM, has been a fixture in Fentress County, Tennessee, for many years. He was recently honored by the National Weather Service for his more than 20 years of service by presenting him with its John Campanius Holm Award. The annual award goes to 25 individuals among the agency's 11,000 plus volunteer weather observers: The award has been given since 1959. One of his greatest qualities is his modesty. During the acceptance ceremony, he said he was accepting the award on behalf of his radio station's staff and the many volunteers who are part of the Fentress County Emergency Service Organization. Fentress Countians are blessed to have someone like Turk looking out for them. ____________________
