Forgiveness is the path to love

The Way I See It by DON WEST Okay girls and boys, we have discussed this particular matter here before, but apparently some of us are not getting the message. I say this because at a mission (a teaching and learning experience usually held during Lent) this week, the guest speaker Fr. Herbert May, has […]

Exercise is good for the heart

Lessons Learned by GLENETTA SHUEY I exercise because it is good for me. I teach exercise because it makes other people feel good. No matter the age, all my participants love the music and the camaraderie that comes with group exercise. Many years ago, I started with simple low-impact exercises, then nine years ago, I […]

Fifty shades of not very interesting

In My Own Little World by AUBREY BROUSSARD Unless you have been living under a rock lately, you may have heard the many people discussing the “50 Shades of Grey” sensationalism that has been circulating all over social network sites, and among friends and housewives alike. Varying opinions regarding the book and movie content are […]

Wealth redistribution – also known as theft

The Way I See It by DON WEST Winston Churchill once quipped, “I contend that a nation which tries to tax itself into prosperity is akin to a man standing in a bucket and lift himself up by the handle.” No doubt, Churchill was more intelligent than anyone who serves in an elected office today. […]

Growing up Cajun

Lessons Learned by GLENETTA SHUEY My first memories involve Cajun traditions and my relatives speaking in Cajun French,  so that we kids wouldn’t know what they were saying! Well, we knew some words, mostly ones not appropriate! When I think of Cajun words, the first one that comes to mind is the expression “sha”. In […]

Valentine’s, Schmalentine’s

In My Own Little World by AUBREY BROUSSARD Ah, l’amore! Love is in the air! Or is it? With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, nothing excites single people more than a holiday designated to highlighting everything that we don’t have in our lives. Or as I like to call it, Single Awareness Day. Seriously. Why is […]

Finally a mom!

Lessons Learned by GLENETTA SHUEY I didn’t become a mother until I was 29 years old. It was actually 33 years ago today: February 11, 1982, on our 4th anniversary. It was a day of celebration for sure. On the way to the hospital that day, as I was wincing from the pain, my husband […]

Isn’t that just like a woman?

I’m Just Sayin’ by SHEILA SMITH I have never been a feminist and, as a woman, I am totally okay with that. I am slightly egalitarian in the sense that I believe a person’s worth is not enhanced or diminished by their gender, race or social status. (Egalitarians, however, also believe everyone is equal despite […]

Bragging on blessings

In My Own Little World by AUBREY BROUSSARD I think there is a fine thin line between expressing ample gratitude for the blessings bestowed upon us on a day-to-day level, or even something that someone has worked extra hard over a long period of time to accomplish and using that gratitude as an excuse to […]

You call that local?

I’m Just Sayin’ by SHEILA SMITH “Keep it local.” When I first joined the Jennings Daily News in 2006, this was more than a motto; it was a rule, a way of life and what should always be at the forefront of our goal when delivering news. I slowly learned why keeping it local is […]
