When it rains, it pours

In My Own Little World by AUBREY BROUSSARD Ever notice how just when you finally get it all together, things start to fall apart again? I often come across this particular little saying that has quickly became one of my favorites: “I can’t get all my ducks in a row, but they’re in the same […]

Belief in ourselves is all that’s needed

The Way I See It by DON WEST Forgive us for being doting, if not overbearing, grandparents. We were once and still are doting parents, always bragging on the achievements of our precious little ones.

Up in the air

Lessons Learned by GLENETTA SHUEY The expression “up in the air” dates back to the 1700’s. Generally, it is used to mean that something has not been decided as of yet. For this column, however, the literal meaning comes into play! As some of you know, I travel to New York every three or four […]

Thoughts on days that end in “y”

I’m Just Sayin’ by SHEILA SMITH The worldwide hand-holding and chorus of “Kumbaya” only lasted two days following the Pulse nightclub massacre in Orlando last weekend.

The art of the Jitterbug

Lessons Learned by GLENETTA SHUEY Music and dance were so much a part of my childhood. Hardly a day went by that we weren’t listening to music or dancing to it. As far back as I can remember, this is true of my life. This joyful legacy was left to me and my family members […]

Neighborhood watching

I’m Just Sayin’ by SHEILA SMITH Now that I have been in Jennings about a year and a half, I am familiar with my neighborhood. Coming from a place I had lived all of my life, I knew everyone in that community, their vehicles, the vehicles of their visitors and the like. That neighborhood ran […]
