The battle for voting rights never ended in Alabama. Voter suppression still exist. Despite being at the epicenter of the voting rights movement of the 1960s, the state remains one of the most difficult places in the nation for an eligible voter to register and successfully cast a ballot. As other states have expanded access to the ballot box with sound policies for early voting, voter registration and voting by mail, Alabama’s policies shows, their are some who have created and perpetuate obstacles to influence the outcome of an election by discouraging particularly voters in marginalized communities.
TIME OFF TO VOTE
Time off to vote is available for those whose work hours exceed polling place hours, which are 7am to 7pm the day of the election If not, employers are not required to give time off to vote. The necessary time off shall not exceed one hour. Whether this time is paid varies by town, city, or state.

2. Barnes sensibilities about the quality of life are also at work when no one’s looking. His 95-year-old mother is good but is also faced with challenges as she gets older, especially the isolation and loneliness of not outliving family and friends, but this pandemic. Ironically, it’s the son who has sacrificed his career to take the time to care for her while his other siblings help from time to time, but care for their own, an families.
I’m okay with that because I had my fun time when I was young scuba diving skydiving, repelling, and that special training to protect and serve you the citizens. My mother, and I welcome that role in our family. And my mom is happy that I’m here, and I do what I can to make sure that she sense, and fees, that loving son to mother relationship, that she instilled in me at a early age. And now its time to once again protect and serve, but in different role.
Barnes accepts his responsibility not as a burden but as the ability to give a gift. “It’s my role,” he says. “It’s my time now to step up, and care for family and I’m happy that I could bring a smile to her life today.”
It is with that kind of compassion and sense of community responsibility that he considers both his job at LEA and the prospect of serving on the Mobile City Council.
.......Barnes considers running for office....... “just another layer on everything else I do,” he says. “So it’s going to put a lot of energy into my life.
......And to add to an already crowded life, Barnes is dedicated to the Alabama Democratic Party with his single-minded loyalty endorsing and representing the very diverse Assembly of Alabama.......
.......Young people are the people that will help us build back better. Barnes wants young people to step up to leadership and take their rightful place. To step up and serve he will have the ability provide youth of any age with the skills to develop into effective and respected leaders within the City, County, and State of Alabama .
.......As a leader who listens attentively and ready to serve. It’s very important not only to create a environment but to develop your leadership skills and to become an advocate for change in your neighborhoods, Barnes says. Don’t be afraid to think that you can’t step up to be a commissioner or elected official. Run for office with character have fun with it, but do it with honesty and integrity and be that person that’s willing to work with other leaders to make a positive difference.......

TIPS ON A HEALTHY LAWN
- Spring is here and now it's time to cut your grass. Insect control is a must for a healthy lawn. Here are some tips...
- Try Spectracide® Triazicide® insect killer for lawns. (Granules).
- Kills on contact plus season-long control, will stop fire-ants on the spot.
- Once treated area has been watered, children and pets can return within 24 hours.
- Extremely hard or long periods of rain may dissipate the treatment.
- I have tried many products with very little or no results. Triazicide® by far is the best to maintain a health lawn.
