Should We Be Embarrassed?
I don't travel up Carolina Terrace to Dartmouth Avenue often, and until yesterday had never noticed the street sign at the intersection. I'm also not the best speller around, and am thankful for spell check and my unofficial editors who point out my errors. But it's a bit embarrassing that the city street folks do not even know how to spell the names of the streets. Let's see how long it takes to correct it.
The election for state Senate District 19 is May 12, and there will be a forum for candidates tonight at 6:00 at St. Mary's Catholic church in Fairfield. The candidates are trying to win the seat formerly held by E. B. McClain, who was removed from office after being convicted of misusing his office.
There are 8 candidates: Louise Alexander of Bessemer, Merika Coleman of Birmingham, Priscilla Dunn of Bessemer, Eric Major of Fairfield, Lawrence McAdory of Bessemer, Rod Scott of Fairfield and Madilyn Southern of Fairfield.
District 19 covers parts of Bessemer, Fairfield, Hueytown, Midfield and surrounding areas.
