Cutting the apron strings

In My Own Little World by Aubrey Broussard I’ve been told that if your teenager doesn’t tell you they hate you at least once in their lives, you’re not doing your job as a parent. If that’s true, then I must be Mother of the Year. I have three teenagers. If I don’t actually hear […]

Not all law enforcement is corrupt

The Way I See It by DON WEST I’ve seen some of the videos and read some of the news reports about the confrontations between police officers and the public. While thinking about the confrontations, the disagreements, the public protests, the violence, the vandalism, the looting and destruction of private and public property in the […]

Embarrasing my children

Lessons Learned by GLENETTA SHUEY I miss the days when my girls were little. I miss their hugs and smiles as I entered the door. I never gave much thought to the fact that when they grew up there wouldn’t be so many hugs and not nearly as many smiles at the sight of good […]

Pets are basically fluffy devils

I’m Just Sayin’ by SHEILA SMITH It is Christmastime once again and everyone is making shopping lists and checking them twice. An item on many of those lists is a pet, but sadly many of those will be re-sold, abandoned or re-homed by March or April. Unless you are personally willing to feed, water, medicate […]

You can’t please everybody

In My Own Little World by AUBREY BROUSSARD They say you haven’t arrived until you’ve gained a few haters. In that case, I may have just entered the big time, baby. I recently experienced a milestone that every writer has at least once in his or her life. I received my first official piece of […]

Memories will live on in the heart

The Way I See It by DON WEST Seems to me that we just finished up Christmas past, but apparently there has been approximately 11 months since that took place and the days continue to fly past like a picket fence at 70 m.p.h. When we reach the downhill side of life, it seems that […]

Once a nerd….

Lessons Learned by GLENETTA SHUEY Definition of “nerd”:  an unstylish, unattractive, or socially inept person; especially one slavishly devoted to intellectual or academic pursuits. I decided to be this character for Halloween this year. I have been called one before, so I thought I might just be a full-fledged version for a night. I went […]

Goodbye too soon

In My Own Little World by AUBREY BROUSSARD One of the most horrific things that I think any parent can experience is the death of a child, even if the child is not your own. Less than a week ago, I received the devastating news that the youngest child and only daughter of one of […]

What have we done for Him today?

The Way I See It by DON WEST Recently in a homily, my pastor indicated that we must live our faith by sharing, giving and being good examples. After all, we Christians have the best example that is possible. We had God, Himself, come into the flesh so that He could give His only son […]

Packing up is hard to do

I’m Just Sayin’ by SHEILA SMITH I am in the process of selling one home and buying another, which is not as fun as it appears to be on HGTV. For this first-time buyer, it has been a learning experience – a hectic, expensive learning experience. For two weeks I stalked a home that was […]
