Protest, but choose your method wisely

The Way I See It by Don West Let me establish my mindset before I launch into this rant.  I firmly believe that Colin Kaepernick has a right as a citizen of this great nation to speak his mind, protest, demonstrate and use his public position to further his cause.  Millions of men and women […]

Life after sugar

Lessons Learned by Glenetta Shuey I have been considered petite or little all of my life, then my body started to betray me! How dare it? After all, I have been nearly an exercise fanatic most of my life! If I am to be honest though, my vice has always been my fondness for sweets. My […]

Wagging tails on the political trail

The Way I See It by Don West I mentioned last week that there are some people who have not been especially astute when it comes to raising their children, therefore they should never consider owning a dog.  There are some who demand respect and discipline from their children, yet would allow their dogs to have […]

What’s in a name?

Lessons Learned by Glenetta Shuey No, my father’s name is not Glen. Yes, I have to pronounce my name nearly every time I speak to someone on the phone, go to any office or give information at a checkout line. I know it is odd, my name, but it is phonetically sound. Glenetta… thanks, Momma! […]

Wrong number, right call

In My Own Little World by Aubrey Broussard Last week I accidentally sent an inappropriate joke to a wrong number. Yikes.

Lessons Learned by Glenetta Shuey This past year I had waited to be part of a play ironically named “It’s Only a Play.” It is one of my favorite Broadway plays. I also looked forward  to having three of my brother’s comrades from his time in Vietnam visit with my family. It is true for […]

We’re all gonna die

I’m Just Sayin’ by Sheila smith “Try not to get upset Let it all go by Because how can it be that bad If we’re all gonna die?” Dawes I prayed for Lester Holt’s soul and safety, popped some popcorn and settled in for the sideshow some called a presidential debate. For about 10 minutes, […]

Disaster looms

The Way I See It by Don West I just have one comment about the debate the other night: “Even with duct tape, you can’t fix stupid, but it does help to muffle the sound.” If you think this presidential campaign has shown us the ultimate in stupidity, just wait until one of them ends up […]

Superwoman I am not

Lessons Learned by Glenetta Shuey Drink water, exercise regularly, don’t  smoke, and eat healthy foods. These are the advisements  we all have been told many times over, probably. I have done that and some, but genetics has its own agenda! If I didn’t know better, I would think that it has a sense of humor. […]
