What makes us special?

Lessons Learned by GLENETTA SHUEY As a teacher of English, I am always aware of the connotations that certain words imply. As a result, I have always made it a point with my students, children, and grandchildren to make a distinction between the dictionary definition (denotation) of a word and its connotative meaning, which refers […]

Tolerating the intolerant

In My Own Little World by AUBREY BROUSSARD I can’t help but notice how intolerant and easily offended people have become in today’s society. I admit there have been times when I have also been guilty of taking things too personally and I’ve learned that being offended doesn’t always mean you should be. However, it’s […]

Traveling woes

Lessons Learned by GLENETTA SHUEY It’s summer, as we in Louisiana well know by simply stepping outside. People from other states just think they know about about hot weather!

In My Own Little World by AUBREY BROUSSARD I hope everyone, especially all dads, step-dads, grand fathers, pet dads and single moms pulling double-duty had a wonderful Father’s Day last weekend. See how easy, pleasant, thoughtful and considerate that was? Not once does that greeting of love extend any negativity at all. It’s actually kind […]

We all need to be more accepting and forgiving

Mutual friends

Lessons Learned by GLENETTA SHUEY Mutual friends are people through whom you connect to other friends. For example, you are friends with Adam, and Adam is friends with James. We all know someone in that way. Often these so-called mutual friends eventually become our friends. This was and is the case with my friend, Linda. […]

Dixie, we have a problem

I’m Just Sayin’ by SHEILA SMITH American irony: The US Treasury is going to put a woman on the $10 bill to assuage feminists.
