OK, THank you for all of your replies.
The red wire that is one on post with another black wire actually goes to the other switch next to it. The other switch has a black wire going to it, and this red wire which goes to the switch next to it. That switch has two wires going into it, both black.
I replaced both switches, and copied the wiring, everything works fine but I am concerned with what some had said. The new switches have green ground screws...currently they are attached to nothing. And one had said to not mount 2 screws on one post...which I did.
I took photos, but I left my memeory card at home. I can post them tomorrow. I apologize for not responding to my own thread sooner, I dont have the internet at our home, and I was home with a sick baby yesterday, so I missed work-where my internet is.
