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 […]

Be thankful every day

In My Own Little World by AUBREY BROUSSARD With Thanksgiving around the corner, we are bombarded with constant reminders to be thankful for our blessings. I don’t think we should need to be reminded of that. Being thankful and grateful should be a daily habit, not something only practiced and acknowledged once a year. No […]

Smile as you work!

Lessons Learned by GLENETTA SHUEY “What a better way to learn than with a smile on your face!” This was my mantra for years when I was teaching, and I still believe it to be true. It can be applied to many scenarios. That is not to say that I or my students felt like […]

Overcoming the odds

In My Own Little World by AUBREY BROUSSARD Everyone experiences personal setbacks and obstacles in life, some more than others. I have always firmly believed that no matter what we endure or must overcome, that we all possess the ability to maintain a steady pace and strive to our goals. When I hear someone make […]

Angel friends

Lessons Learned by GLENETTA SHUEY True friendship is a rarity: it lasts through time, trials, tiffs, and tantrums. (Former students: note the alliteration! Never could pass up a teachable moment!) I have many acquaintances, several friends, but only a few people that truly know me and love me anyway. Every so often someone comes into […]

To shop or not to shop?

In My Own Little World by AUBREY BROUSSARD To shop or not to shop, that is the question – on Thanksgiving Day that is. I never understood this obsession to Christmas shopping on Thanksgiving Day. I don’t even understand the whole Black Friday shopping frenzy. I don’t Black Friday shop, ever. I don’t care what […]

You may as well play the lottery

The Way I See It by DON WEST Did you feel the frustration? When you approached the ballot screen, did you feel like you were playing the lottery? Were you absolutely frustrated with the vile campaign ads in print, on radio and television? Do you feel like the victim who has fallen for a scam? […]

Generations of love

Lessons Learned by GLENETTA SHUEY In early fall of 1985, I was blessed to have the first of two foreign-exchange students live with us for a year. Coincidentally, they were both from Norway. The first one, Torunn,  was a beautiful blue-eyed blonde, almost the stereotype of Scandinavian beauties. But she was more than that: she […]

Priscilla and the Oreos

In My Own Little World by AUBREY BROUSSARD We are animal lovers in our house. When I was growing up, my parents always had animals in our home as well. That’s just the way it was. I don’t understand how anyone can say they simply don’t like animals or how anyone can hurt an animal. […]

I needed those words of wisdom

Behind the Scenes by KEVIN BRUCHHAUS Being such a sports oriented person, I don’t get to get out much and hear a lot about other stories that take place in our area. This past week I had the pleasure to hear Kim Thibodeaux and Tom and Kim Precht speak about events that have changed their […]
