Learning to say yes to life

In My Own Little World by AUBREY BROUSSARD I used to be afraid of everything. I don’t just mean a slightly unpleasant feeling every now and then; I’m talking full-fledged, debilitating fear. I never tried new things, spoke out, took road trips or ventured outside of my comfort zones. I remember as a teenager, I […]

This country needs a true leader, not a liar

The Way I See It by DON WEST The old saying, “Into every life a little rain must fall” coincides with Hillary’s announcement on Sunday that she will run for president of the United States. As if this week wasn’t bad enough with Tax Day looming, the dark cloud of a woman who wouldn’t know […]

Get outta my lane

From My Perspective by ROGER POLLARD Louisiana R.S. 32:71. Most people don’t know it by title, and by my experiences, most people apparently don’t care. What R.S. 32:71 defines is the law that slower traffic must keep right. The wording is as follows, “On multilane highways keep right except to pass and move right if […]

Grandchildren: Pure love

Lessons Learned by GLENETTA SHUEY Twelve years ago today, my first grandchild was born. She changed my life; she took my breath away. I had heard from other doting grandparents how much they loved their grandchildren. The minute I saw her face, I understood. Since Audrey Ann was born on “Tax Day,” her Dad jokingly […]

Confiscate anything, just not the phone

I’m Just Sayin’ by SHEILA SMITH These days, it’s not uncommon to see cell phones at the center of police investigations or divorces or general we-need-to-hide-the-evidence situations. As a reporter, I have personally reported plenty about people who were caught red-handed thanks to incriminating evidence on their phones. The practice makes sense. People are always […]

Finding the silver lining

In My Own Little World by AUBREY BROUSSARD Do you ever notice that when everything is going right and moving along nice and smoothly, that it’s easy to love yourself and where you are in life? I think everyone feels this way from time to time. We’re happy as long as everything is going our […]

Only misery loves company

The Way I See It by DON WEST How many of us, from time to time, go into that mindset of “poor me”? A variety of reasons can take us from a point when we are mentally in tune with the world, thankful for another day, basking in the beautiful weather, enjoying the newness of […]

Living on in our hearts

Lessons Learned by GLENETTA SHUEY I leave this week for my bi-annual trip to New York to see my specialist at Mount Sinai and for this theatre lover, most importantly, to see more plays. My enthusiasm is dampened, however, because my faithful traveling companion will not be at my side. My sweet sister-in-law was taken […]

It’s spring – a time for new beginnings

The Way I See It by DON WEST I saw them this morning and know that spring has arrived. They have probably been there a while, but the buds on the pecan trees just became apparent to me from the distance of which I observe. Spring is a time for new beginnings, a time of […]

Not fooling me!

Lessons Learned by GLENETTA SHUEY I have always disliked April Fools’ day. If it would fall on a school day, I would beg my Momma to allow me to stay home. That was never going to happen of course. The reason I dreaded this day was because some of the pranks were embarrassing and often […]
