EDGEWATER -- I got my absentee ballot the other day and was bowled over by how much it includes. It begins with the candidates for president which number 12 in all. including Roseanne Barr/Cindy Sheehan for the PFP party whatever that is.

EDGEWATER -- I’ll be honest with you, in the recent primary election I did not want to vote for Carl Persis or Ted Doran so I voted for Jason Davis, even though I did not really know much about him. I did know that Persis and Doran are part of the “good ole boy” network around here that thinks it owns the area and needs to be thrown out on their ears in my opinion.

EDGEWATER A friend called me earlier and asked me if I knew what today's date is? Since I haven’t been working, I usually am lucky if I know what day of the week it is let alone the date. My friend was distressed that I didn’t know that the date is the anniversary of the 9/11 tragedy. Had I known what today’s date was I would have known what he was referring to.

EDGEWATER -- Looking at the results of the recent primary election just confirmed what I had originally thought. The population keeps moaning about how things aren’t right, then they vote the same people into one office or another and expect change.

EDGEWATER -- To say I was stunned when I heard about the tragedy in Colorado is an understatement. You would think that after all that has happened in recent years these things would not shock us so when they happen.

I received my absentee ballot today and it is in both English and Spanish. It raises my hackles to see that on my so-called American ballot. As all of you who read my blog know, I am against anything, but English being used in this country for road signs, voting ballots or anything else including in Walmart on the signs there. You want to live in and be American, then learn the language.

 Lest we forget the sacrifices it took to gain and retain our free country read below my comments. Then remember when voting that we need politicians who believe in those same original freedoms fought for so valiantly lo those many years ago.

NEW SMYRNA BEACH -- Congratulations to the graduating class of New Smyrna Beach High School. Seeing that the number of graduates totaled 392 reminded me of my own graduation in 1964. At that time the old high school on the North Causeway in New Smyrna Beach was brand new and our class consisted of 66 pupils. Our ceremony was at the school itself and we with our family and friends all fit without a problem.
