It’s past time to stop the spending

The Way I See It by DON WEST The Legislature is in session. Be very very afraid. The Legislature is in Special Session, consuming more tax dollars and wasting more time, trying to correct the mistakes that they made during the regular sessions, so be very very afraid. The main concern of this Special Session […]

Second chances

Lessons Learned by GLENETTA SHUEY I can still hear my Dad’s voice say these words: “Excuses, excuses, excuses!” He didn’t like them and seldom let us use one. Neither did Ben Franklin obviously as he is known to have said: “One that is good for making excuses is seldom good for anything else.” Personally, I […]

This is not an issue

I’m Just Sayin’ by SHEILA SMITH For most of my life, I lived in a rural area, so of course I experienced rural joys: coyotes crying in the dead of night, raccoons pilfering from crawfish ponds, possums on the porch eating with the cats, snakes falling from a rafter onto my head, bobcats lounging just […]

Two for one

Lessons Learned by GLENETTA SHUEY On February 11 of 1978, I became a married woman. Granted, my mother’s sigh of relief probably could be heard around the world. After all, I was 24 years old! I had always insisted that I would finish college before I became a wife. Then, after a bit, I began […]

Don’t judge everything you see

In My Own Little World by AUBREY BROUSSARD If there’s one thing I’ve learned in my life, especially in this job, it’s that not everything you see is what it appears to be, and not everyone you meet is who they seem. I remind my children often that not everyone who is nice to you […]
