Holiday hypocrite

In My Own Little World by AUBREY BROUSSARD As the Thanksgiving holiday comes to an end, the Christmas season is quickly behind and to some, was in full force even before the Thanksgiving feast was purchased. A common trivial complaint I hear during the holiday season is regarding the grey line between each holiday. As […]

No room at this inn

I’m Just Sayin’ by SHEILA SMITH This week, Americans will celebrate Thanksgiving with tables filled with homemade goods and families gathered to mark another year of love and being thankful for every blessing they receive, from the biggest surprise to the smallest need. By Thursday evening, they will forget all of their blessings and race […]

Thankful every day

In My Own Little World by AUBREY BROUSSARD One of the things I notice every November, is this recently popular “game” circulating on social media. I call it a game because I’m not really sure what it is, but the way it works is this; each day of the month of November, you post a […]

Waste not…

Lessons Learned by GLENETTA SHUEY Growing up with seven siblings, one learned quickly how to share. My Momma was the master of stretching food and “making ends meet,” as my Daddy might have said. There was no wasting in our home. Every day when we came home from school, we were greeted with homemade goodies […]

It’s not easy being Type A

In My Own Little World by AUBREY BROUSSARD I am the nicest, kindest, sweetest, most polite person you will ever meet.

D’em Saints

Lessons Learned by GLENETTA SHUEY The New Orleans Saints football team was founded in 1967 in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Is this a popularity contest or an election?

I’m Just Sayin’ by SHEILA SMITH I ran for a student council position in fifth grade in hopes of having frequent excuses to leave class.

Toilet paper from Heaven

In My Own Little World by AUBREY BROUSSARD As the homecoming games, dances and festivities all throughout the parish come to an end, I find myself thinking of the rolls and rolls of toilet paper that have been strewn in trees and shrubs, around vehicles and porches, along fences, on lawns and even over rooftops.

You can’t fix stupid

The Way I See It by DON WEST “This combat soldier’s prayer, Who has served his time in Hell, Is may we learn the lessons of war well, That we not doom future generations, The same old tales of horror to tell, To endure what in youth they see mistakenly as glory. Oh God, do […]
