FORT MYERS, Fla.- Fort Myers has caught the attention of the state NAACP.

Leaders of the state civil rights group are coming to Fort Myers for a town hall meeting. At issue, is the portrait of Robert E. Lee in the Lee County Commission Chambers.

They also want to discuss Sheriff's Mike Scott's comments about "black on black" crime and "hip-hop culture."

The town hall will be held next Saturday, October 5, at the Dunbar Community School auditorium. It starts at 2 o'clock and is open to the public.
