For some in Nutter Fort, Supreme Court is key issue

by Paul Darst

STAFF WRITER

NUTTER FORT -- After months of campaigning, Louella Nicholson remains unimpressed with either candidate for president this year.

And with just a day left before the race comes to an end, she still remains undecided.

"I'd probably vote for Gore," said Nicholson, who works in Nutter Fort. "But I probably won't make up my mind until I walk in to the voting booth."

Potential voters in Nutter Fort this weekend talked about the campaign and their choices in key races. The race's possible impact on the U.S. Supreme Court and second amendment rights were among the issues on their minds.

Protection of second amendment freedoms is important to Tim Holiday.

"I think it should be harder to buy a gun," Holiday said. "I have no problem with somebody checking my background. In this day and age, they should be able to do that instantly."

During the course of the campaign, Holiday has changed his mind about which presidential candidate to support, he said.

"I was leaning toward Gore at the start of the year," Holiday said. "The more I listened, the more I started shifting to Bush."

One reason is that the next president could have the chance to appoint up to three justices to the Supreme Court, he said. That could affect a number of issues, including gun control.

"This is a big Supreme Court year," Holiday said. "(The election) can really have a big impact."

Holiday cast his vote by absentee ballot on Friday because he will be out of town on Election Day, he said.

Making the right decision isn't easy, Nicholson said. Candidates all sound the same to her.

"I think they will tell you anything you want to hear," she said. "They're all going to do miracles."
