Let’s go doctor shopping

I’m Just Sayin’ by SHEILA SMITH I called four separate physicians’ offices before I realized I was going to keep getting the same answer: “We will need some information. We will then give the doctor your information. The doctor will review it and let us know if you have been accepted as a patient.” I […]

Single parent super mom

In My Own Little World by AUBREY BROUSSARD I’m a single mom with a full time job. Oh, don’t feel sorry for me, because I sure don’t. But here’s the thing: we single-parent families still have to achieve the same ultimate goals at the end of the day that double-parent families do. We still have […]

Table that thought!

Lessons Learned by GLENETTA SHUEY You know how it is: there are some things we love about our present life, but we all miss some things about our yesterdays! I know I do. I miss our Sunday dinners. But let me clarify for those who were not raised in South Louisiana: dinner was lunch for […]

A life of creativity

In My Own Little World by AUBREY BROUSSARD In our house, creativity was never an option, it was a necessity. Raising creative, artistic children isn’t always easy, but it’s always interesting. No child ever has a cookie cutter personality and this is especially true for children who think outside of the box. My siblings and […]

We must not abide violence in any way

The Way I See It by DON WEST So, we are running bombing missions to certain areas of Syria, to supposedly cripple ISIL, a synonym for a crazed group of Islamic rebels.

Where were the parents?

Since Sunday morning, Jennings Daily News (JDN) reporters have been hearing much about homecoming after-parties that were held in Jeff Davis Parish (JDP) this past weekend. A lot of what has been said – as well as confirmed – has not been very surprising. After all, if you put a large group of people together, […]

I believe…

Lessons Learned by GLENETTA SHUEY Believing in something or someone isn’t always easy. We have to possess faith. That is not always inherent to our nature. I don’t exactly remember when or where or how old I was when I heard the following quotation, but it has always stayed with me: “I have the courage […]

It’s not a forum, it’s Mortal Kombat

I’m Just Sayin’ by SHEILA SMITH I was pulling newsroom’s mail from its box in the front office. Amid the meeting agendas, public service announcements, public submissions and a copy of PETA magazine (seriously, who signed us up for that?) was a large manila envelope. It was addressed to no one in particular. In fact, […]

Happy Fall, ya’ll!

In My Own Little World by AUBREY BROUSSARD Did you feel that cool front that came in this week? I mean did you step outside that first cool, crisp morning and really feel it? Oh boy, I sure did. I love fall. This is my absolute favorite time of year and I know I’m not […]

Small but sure

Lessons Learned by GLENETTA SHUEY Years ago, like every other teen, I had all sorts of ambitions. I was a little thing. The shortest in my class, and, at one time, believe it or not, somewhat introverted. I grew out of that, but didn’t grow much otherwise. My hope was to be a trial lawyer […]
