Flood poem penned

Dear Editor, Four trillion gallons of rain.  Came down in just three days. Across our state.  Devastation. Flooded homes and roadways. So many acts of courage.  Mixed in with the despair. Rescues. Cajun Navy.  Some towns? Will take years to repair. This one small town. Dear to me. Nearby a river flows. It too was hit.  And danger grew. As lake […]

Question raised concerning road closure

Dear Editor, During the flood, people from Mermentau were able to travel 16 miles to Crowley to shop for necessities. Normally they can shop in Jennings, which is only about five miles away. Why is this? Highway 90 between the towns of Mermentau and Silverwood and the town of Jennings has several dips which flood […]

Dear Editor, God intends for us and our leaders, as Christians, to honor and obey ALL of God’s teachings and commandments. I read nowhere in the Bible where we are given the authority to choose which of these teachings and commandments to obey or ignore, nor the authority to consider which are the most important. […]

Viewpoint shared

Dear Editor, I usually enjoy the Lake Charles American Press editorials. I find them balanced and thoughtful viewpoints. Those opinions often bring forth equal sides of an issue or present a pressing need. I was very disappointed with the editorial titled, “Louisiana’s Failing School System”, especially the closing sentence. I quote, “Our schools must take […]

Reader responds to letter

Dear Editor, In response to Larry Guidry’s letter on Sunday, Aug. 7, 2016: I profess to be a Christian and try to live by the 10 Commandments. My number-one issue, whether Democrat or Republican, man or woman, is, “How do you stand with abortion?” God will not bless a nation that allows abortion, no prayers […]

Dear Editor, Every day some so-called Christians quote Bible verses on Facebook or some other social media then revert to spewing their hatred for Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Democrats, Muslims, Mexicans, immigrants and anyone who opposes Donald Trump. Apparently these Christians didn’t read the entire Bible or overlooked scripture about brotherhood and loving your neighbor […]

Reader responds to recent events

Dear Editor, John F. Kennedy once said in a now famous speech that “our most basic common link is that we all inhabit this small planet. We all breathe the same air. We all cherish our children’s future, and we are all mortal.” Nearly a year has passed since I wrote a letter to the […]

Public Thanked for Relay Support

Dear Editor, On behalf of the American Cancer Society, Jeff Davis Parish Relay for Life Committee, Optimist Club Team and Relay for Life Golf Tournament Committee, I would like to express a great, big “thank you” to everyone that helped make the 10th Annual Relay for Life Golf Tournament a huge success. I would like […]

Dear Editor

I have to start this letter off with the word “Really?” As I observed and watched the presidential candidates, I can only say “Really G.O.P. ,” “Really, Conservatives,” “Really, Republicans,” and last but not least, “Really, America.” I’m 57 years old and have observed several presidential elections, however I can’t recall the last time I […]

Alexander addresses Semmes’ letter

Dear Editor, As Joe Semmes quoted in reference to the Dollar Store in Hathaway, Louisiana, “It is called one of the largest decisions in Hathaway’s history in the area without hardly any discussion with the people who matter”. I concur. As concerned citizens and land owners, the “No Dollar General in Hathaway, Louisiana” Facebook page […]
