Writer addresses previous letter

Dear Editor, This letter responds to a previous letter published in the Jennings Daily News and written by Dr. Chris Achee. I’m just a patient, a 69-year-old man who receives great primary medical care from a nurse practitioner. I have to disagree with Dr. Achee’s position, and I support independent practice for nurse practitioners who […]

Resident discusses Hathaway concerns

Dear Editor, I hated to miss the recent police jury meeting and the subsequent love fest afterwards, on the topic of the Dollar General store in Hathaway. Work always seems to interfere with those type things. I was represented by my police juror though, which is how that works. He attends them so I don’t […]

Caring Hands thanks public

Dear Editor, We at Caring Hands would like to thank everyone involved with the National Association of Letter Carriers Food Drive. Caring Hands received much needed supplies for our food pantry. We operate solely from contributions and donations. Thanks to our wonderful community and the hard work of our area letter carriers, our pantry is […]

Dear Editor, This is to express concern about the ongoing paving project on La. 97 between Evangeline and Jennings. For many years this stretch of roadway has qualified as the roughest, most poorly maintained, lug bolt untightening road in all the southern states, including (almost unbelievably) Mississippi and Arkansas.

Local weighs in on transgender issue

Dear Editor, Since I have seen so many weigh in on this issue, I thought I would throw in my two cents worth as well. From what I have seen, I think it is safe to say that most people feel like we have crossed a line that we should not have crossed in debating […]

Semmes Talks Dollar General

Dear Editor, It is called “one of the largest decisions in Hathaway’s history in the area-made without hardly any discussion with the people who matter.” It is the controversial department store planned in Hathaway played out on “anti-social media”, in particular on “Farcebook”. An anti-Dollar General (DG) page was created and in the process of all […]

WHS Thanks Public

Dear Editor, The parents of the 2016 Welsh High Graduates would like to thank all the local merchants and individuals for their generous support of the After Graduation Drug Free Party. The party was held after graduation on May 11, 2016 in Welsh and the donations were used to pay for the food, games and […]

Given the rise of Conservative values in American politics, which once piggybacked on the ascension of Fox News Channel, talk radio, and the tangible economic benefits of Ronald Reagan’s presidency, we certainly have a lot to celebrate as Conservatives. However, I’m concerned we are nearing the end of traditional Conservative populism and here’s why. The […]

Pastor Commends School, Responders

Dear Editor, Today, I witnessed the beauty of a unified, professional organization as they responded to the cowardly act of a bomb threat. Ward Elementary was forced to evacuate their school Monday as a result of the threat. My daughter teaches a second grade class so I was alerted the moment they were asked to […]

Dear Editor, In 1974, I registered for the draft and then got in the next line to register to vote. Since then I have failed to vote in only a handful of elections. I take my right to vote very seriously. For a free nation, it is the only way to make a difference in […]
