Apparently it wasn't that important of an issue to have folks register to vote before the 2008 elections. Why so now? I also personally feel that if you are required to have an I.D. to fly, to get a driver's license, to buy certain medications, to buy alcohol or cigarettes, then why should it be a big deal to have an I.D. to vote? If you have nothing to hide, then it shouldn't be an issue.

The really sad thing about all of this is that people will actually vote for him in droves! What does that say about this city/county?

It's funny, I don't recall the NAACP caring so much about their "people" being registered to vote in elections prior to 2008. Or am I imagining this? Are they as concerned about the new drivers license requirements? Just wondering.

As a long time resident of Lee County and a former "military brat", I would welcome with open arms the military kids attending our schools. Most military kids are well mannered and actually want to learn. I believe they would be an asset to our school system. Most folks I've spoken with in Lee County aren't against this either.

If that's her platform, then Ms. Quimbley needs to go ahead and do us all a favor and remove herself from the race. Although compassion is a desired trait, it actually takes a little more than that to be a coroner. Mr Fowler seems to have the qualifications to carry out what's necessary to perform the job of coroner. Maybe then there can actually be someone in an office in Dougherty county who has the qualifications for the job.

carbonrob 2 years ago on Edwards considering run for state office

Her grammar leaves a little to be desired. She needs to just stick to small time political arenas such as Albany, where poor grammar is taught, spoken and expected.

carbonrob 2 years ago on What's different about Trayvon Martin?

The only difference about the Trayvon Martin case is that Zimmerman is half white and the media is making this into a "race" issue. It's not a race issue. It's an issue of Zimmerman making a bad call and possibly shooting an innocent young man. All the facts aren't in, only the ones that main stream media and the "racist mongers" want you to hear. It's really sad that the "Reverends" (and I use that word loosely), Sharpton and Jackson, only use incidents such as this to get up on their soap box and spew racist venom. Where are they when their own people are shooting each other? So many are getting on this bandwagon without thinking twice about it. Why don't the "Reverends" and their followers who so blindly follow their leads channel this hatred into something more productive such as getting their own to stop killing each other?
