Wednesday, I enjoyed attending community lunch at Providence Baptist Church in Beauregard. Providence is my dad’s (James’) and stepmom’s (Janice’s) church in Lee County. It was great meeting their fellow church members.
Two of those church members stood out in particular: former Probate Judge Hal Smith & Mr Jim Manos.
Judge Smith was my probate judge when I lived in Lee County. He was also in office when I began my work in Alabama election administration 30 years ago.
Mr. Manos is the father of high school friend Jim “Maxx” Manos.
