Getting old beats the alternative

Lessons Learned by Glenetta Shuey This weekend, like many weekends, I was  fortunate to have a few of my grandkids stay over. Often, I hear my friends say that they wished their grandkids lived closer. I am thankful that my “babies” live close by.  Like most children, my grandchildren are outspoken and sometimes honest to […]

The kids aren’t alright

I’m Just Sayin’ by Sheila Smith Before Thursday’s school board meeting began, I was browsing over the agenda and noticed two articles of information from the state that were being passed on to the local level.

Accept disappointment with grace

In My Own Little World by Aubrey Broussard Disappointments are a part of life. Learning to accept them with grace and dignity is an important skill.

Wrapped in prayer

Lessons Learned by Glenetta Shuey I try to learn something new every day. Sometimes it occurs by chance when a friend may tell me an interesting tidbit of information.

Passing on the blessings

In My Own Little World by Aubrey Broussard When I first moved here approximately two and a half years ago, I was absolutely amazed at the degree to which so many members of the community reached out to help those in need. To this day, that amazement is still going strong. I’ve never seen a […]

It’s time to untie the apron strings

The Way I See It by Don West There are some who feel that Christmas never ends. There are those who never want to leave the fantasy of dancing snowmen, Santa and reindeer that fly, and there are parents and grandparents who seem to do their best in trying to perpetuate that fantasy.  Frankly, I […]

Celebrating a year of God’s gifts

The Way I See It by Don West As I approach another year, I have to glance over my shoulder and wonder where time went, for this year seemed to sprout wings. I have found that the more I seem to enjoy life, the faster it passes. Young people who read this will have no […]
