Public service nightmare

In My Own Little World by Aubrey Broussard In my younger years, I had several jobs involving public service, particularly in the fast food and retail industries. I know many people who have lasting and fulfilling careers in these industries, and enjoy the public interactions necessary when working in any service-oriented occupation. I, however, was […]

Use your time wisely

The Way I See It by Don West A friend of mine recently sent me a quote regarding the final days of Alexander the Great and his last wishes. He gathered his people to tell them that when he died he wanted the very best doctors to carry his coffin. This would demonstrate to others, and […]

Day by day

Lessons Learned by Glenetta Shuey The one thing I have learned over the years is that every person  has his own story to tell. We all have troubles and  trials that make life difficult at times, to say the least. Through experience and having my dad as a role model for so many years, I […]

Have we forgotten the true tragedy?

I’m Just Sayin’ by Sheila Smith “And a lie, Mr. Mulder, is most convincingly hidden between two truths.”   The X-Files By now you have read or heard of the contents of Ethan Brown’s book, “Murder in the Bayou.” In fact, I imagine many around the state and nation have become acquainted with its existence.

Lessons Learned by Glenetta Shuey “Justice delayed is justice denied” is a quote found in an 1868 speech by British Prime Minister, William E. Gladstone, and before that in an 1842 issue of the Louisiana Law Journal. Quite  the irony, I would say, but I agree completely with Mr. Gladstone. Don’t get me wrong: I […]

Live life to the fullest

The Way I See It by Don West Someone said, “Work like there is a tomorrow, pray like there is not, and dance as if no one is watching.”  I believe that these are all reminders that we should live life to the fullest.  Don’t put off that special dinner or taking that trip.  Life […]

Play time

Lessons Learned by Glenetta Shuey I have always  enjoyed movies and plays. As an English and Speech teacher and theatre coach, I loved reading plays with my students and  directing them in our performances for Speech Rally. For a small school without a stage, we accomplished a great deal and won several awards. However, my secret […]

Idioms and everyday life

Lessons Learned by Glenetta Shuey We Americans have many  expressions that have other connotations. Every country does,  I suppose. As an English teacher, I have always been fascinated by the origins of words and phrases. This was brought to my attention even more so when I took in two Norwegian girls (not at the same […]

Our apathy is showing
