You can’t hide an ugly heart

In My Own Little World by Aubrey Broussard As a single woman and single mother, I’ve never felt like my status made me a helpless victim. You learn survival skills early in the game. However, the fact of the matter is, no matter how independent, prepared or capable we are, we still deal with limitations. […]

The slob mob carries on

The Way I See It by Don West First, an apology: Last week, I denigrated some of our past presidents, and also the one in office at this time.  Sometimes when I criticize politicians, I tend to lump all into one basket, but it was never my intention to place President Jimmy Carter into a […]

Lipstick on a pig does not change the truth

I’m Just Sayin’ by Sheila Smith Every American knows a bit of history. Aside from the highlights, however, few people take the time to research and study the past. I think many of the societal and political issues we face today are because the American history we are taught in schools is greatly watered down. […]

The president should have class

The Way I See It by Don West Past President Barack Obama set the bar for presidential candidates. Unfortunately, he set the bar on the floor, where anyone — absolutely anyone — can run for president and get elected. Obviously, anyone can get elected. Well, Obama didn’t do it alone, as Bill Clinton certainly helped […]

Conversations in the dark

Lessons Learned by Glenetta Shuey It was the night of Hurricane Audrey, June 29, 1957. I was 4-and-a-half years old, and completely in the dark, literally and figuratively, as to what was going on in my little world. I wasn’t sure what electricity was; all I knew was that the “lights went out.” I wasn’t […]

Stop and take a nap

In My Own Little World by Aubrey Broussard It’s easy to get wrapped up in too many projects and overwhelm yourself. I’m the absolute worst when it comes to doing this. I’m not sure if I fill my days with constant activity because of an underlying need to feel productive, or if it’s because I […]

No change in spending, less change in pockets

The Way I See It by Don West Last year, Bobbye and I were fortunate enough to have the opportunity to travel up to the Northeast visiting friends, enjoying the beauty of the Great Smoky Mountains, seeing and participating in the lifestyles of the Amish people, enjoying lobster from the Atlantic, soaking in the history […]

100 on the random

Lessons Learned by Glenetta Shuey Since entering the world of teens once again, now as a Granny, I have had to adapt to a completely new vocabulary coming at  me. When my girls were younger, it wasn’t nearly as difficult, as I was a high school English teacher and was around this age group all […]

Math and Mona Lisa

I’m Just Sayin’ by Sheila Smith Last year I decided to cut household expenses. I opted for a cell phone plan with less features, cancelled my internet subscription and nixed using movie and music streaming services. I felt that such cuts made sense when my only other options were canceling utilities and insurance plans. So […]

Facing fears with a leap of faith

In My Own Little World by Aubrey Broussard I’m not afraid of much but for me, my fear of heights is right up there with my deep-rooted phobia of commitment and singing in front of an audience. A couple of years ago I was presented with the opportunity to somewhat address those fears when I […]
