Local Praises Ivy Woods

There is a very simple reason that the jail tax passed after having failed three times since the 1980’s. Many can claim that this or that made the difference, but the real reason it passed is because of Ivy Woods. The simple true reason is that the voting public now has a belief that they […]

Dear Editor, Although civil wars such as what is happening in Syria would not be affected, peace between Israel and the Arab countries is really very simple in concept. All Israel has ever asked for is to be accepted as a Jewish State by their neighbors and to live in peace. That’s all. They have […]

Dear Editor, Jeb Bush feels that the motivation for illegal immigrants to break our law and come here is love for their family and trying to help that family have a better life.

Dear Editor, Are you aware of consequences of too much allegiance? I was born into the most Democratic family that ever existed.

Common Core Wrong for La.

Dear Editor, The Washington Post reports that Common Core was originally promoted and presented as a way of raising academic standards for all children around the country. But is it? Now being implemented in 45 of 50 states, Common Core standards are already in use – and in at least one state, those results are […]

The Crack of the Bat Means Spring has Sprung

Dear Editor, What an exciting time of the year. Spring is in the air. The cool, crisp feeling of morning stimulates the flow of energy. And baseball, with all its exciting challenges, is underway.
