Seeing is believing

Lessons Learned by Glenetta Shuey I recently came across an anonymous quote that said,  “I opened 2 gifts this morning: my eyes.”  I am one who has always taken  those “gifts” for granted. My niece’s  husband had that gift stolen from him at the age of 18 – the age when most people are truly on […]

So many sideshows, so little space

I’m Just Sayin’ by Sheila Smith With so much going on in America, it’s difficult for me to decide which sideshow should be discussed. So this week, I decided to touch on a few areas. “You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.” – Inigo Montoya, “The […]

Wall talk

The Way I See It by Don West Well, I must not be politically correct and I must be a bigot and I must be prejudicial and I must be discriminating.  If you come to my door, and I do not recognize you and you cannot answer to my satisfaction, “who’s you momma and dem?”, […]

Everyone makes mistakes

In My Own Little World by Aubrey Broussard No matter how good of a person you are, or try to be, sometimes there will always be someone who will always hold the worst of your actions against you. To add insult to injury, they are usually the same individuals who won’t hesitate to share it […]

Accept disappointment with grace

Complaining about them is normal but shouldn’t be done in excess. As I “preach” this, I am filled with conviction, as I know I’ve done more than my share […]

Unleash your inner sparkle

Lessons Learned by Glenetta Shuey Because I grew up in a very large household, there was not much extra to spend on anything considered frivolous.

The fake and the fury

I’m Just Sayin’ by Sheila Smith For more than 10 years now, I have worked at a small newspaper.
