Battle Brewing in Lauderdale

If not for some fractious local political wrangling, Lynn Greer might have run for State House as a Democrat in 2002. Instead Greer succeeded "Goat" Hamilton and became the first Republican elected to the legislature from Lauderdale county. Understandably state and local Democrats have been eyeing Greer's seat ever since.

Retired lobbyist and Democrat Connie Walden has been in the race for months, but some local Dems have been shopping for an alternative. And after a false start or two, they may have found their candidate.

Three term county commissioner Mike Curtis is weighing the race and some Lauderdale Dems think he's their best shot to oust Greer. Curtis has interest in the race but is still weighing personal considerations against his political goals. Still many state and local Democrats are trying to recruit Curtis into the race and the AEA's polling arm has even conducted a Curtis/Greer matchup (I'm told the poll showed a "dead heat" which would bode well for the challenger).

However, even if Curtis does enter the race he will face a tough fight against against Lynn Greer. Greer has been a political fixture locally as he served on the PSC and even made a run for Congress before his latest stint as a Republican State Rep. Greer's well honed retail political skills will no doubt be accompanied by staunch support from the AL GOP and its allies.

A Curtis/Greer matchup would be one of the premier State House races of the cycle and would give House Dems a chance to offset potential losses elsewhere. Ultimately such a race could be as close and important as any State House race in Alabama.

Zac, I don't know what you are smokin' man, but you might consider quitting. Mike Curtis is a laughing stock, and Lynn is tapped into the dough in Monkey town. Lynn Greer has been a wonderful representative for District 2. If he is going anywhere, I wish he would run against Denton, and send the "singing Senator" backing.

The Breville 800jexl juice machine has a very nice and solid
stainless steel exterior. The user can choose the optimum speed depending on the food to be
juiced. There are lots of juicers to choose from and it can be challenging to find the best juicer for your needs.

It is easier to remove the holder if its not stuck to the cardboard tubing.
Unique ways to display flowers - Fresh flowers are wonderful:
They smell great and look really pretty. And, according to the
occasion, place table decor items such as flower vases, candles, wine glasses, etc.

Therefore, except from relatively simple understated designs,
wooden beds are expensive. Let the glue dry completely before you start working on the nightstand.
Shop for sofa bed online as you would find a huge variety of beds on online stores together with
saving more money with the help of discounts.

In order to be the perfect favor, the wedding table decorations should fit
in with both the wedding and the bride and groom.
Add some glitz to your table settings with beautiful
diamond scatters. Some brides simply cannot find anything which
inspires them.

Here are ways to overwinter mums so they will regrow in spring.

Now, come spring, it's just a matter of renting a rototiller and getting it done. Artificial lighting can add a lot to the overall ambiance of a garden and so too can statues as well as ornamental items.

My coder is trying to convince me to move to .
net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using WordPress on a variety of websites for about a year and am anxious about switching to another platform.
I have heard fantastic things about blogengine.net. Is there
a way I can import all my wordpress content into it? Any help would be really appreciated!

Hi, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.
When I look at your blog site in Firefox, it looks fine but when
opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!
Other then that, excellent blog!
