Obama’s Tax Plan

To All My Federal Lawmakers: There are so many major problems with Obama’s tax plan that it’s hard to find a place to start. He pits the poor and middle-class against the wealthy, and that is pure class warfare. Just who gives his dishonest administration (or anyone else) the moral authority to say what anyone’s […]

BESE Urges Action

Dear Louisiana Citizens and Education Stakeholders, As members of the State Board of Education (BESE, the “Board of Elementary and Secondary Education”), we have requested a special meeting of BESE to address the concerns of school districts being punished for students who choose to opt out of PARCC testing. Unfortunately, our request was denied by […]

Reader Discusses I-10 Patrols

Dear Editor As a former longtime resident of Jennings and someone that still has family and friends living in Jennings, I think it is a travesty that the District Attorney’s office so called “Mission” says it’s dedicated to the pursuit of justice, prevention of crime, and the preservation of our future.  None of these things […]

Fellowship with God keeps us strong

Too many Christians do not know what God can do. They do not know who they are in Christ and the power that is already in them. As a result, they are not on fire. And the people they come in contact with do not come close to catching on fire. The devil is always […]

CIA and Enhanced Interrogation

Exactly why should anyone accept this Senate CIA report as the final word on CIA interrogation activities? Why should we assume it’s the absolute truth when it was written by a highly partisan committee? I would caution anyone that quoting anything in this report may be furthering a blatant falsehood, so be very careful. The […]

Reader Responds to Letters Discussing Racism

Kudos to Mr. Brown and Mr. Guidry on their recent well-written letters. Mine is an alternate view on the same subject. I find that most of our problems today, are like the countless snakes coming out of the head of the Greek mythology figure, “Medusa.” With each snake representing a controversial hot topic throughout history […]

Thank You to the Southwest Louisiana Residents

I’m writing to thank Southwest Louisiana residents for their generosity in helping needy children worldwide this Christmas season. Together we were able to collect 23,086 shoeboxes-filled with toys, school supplies and hygiene items-for Operation Christmas Child, the world’s largest Christmas project of its kind. For many children, these shoeboxes will be the first gifts they […]

What’s Your Excuse?

The story of the man at the pool of Bethesda parallels what is happening in people’s lives today. Instead of standing in faith and confessing the Word of God for themselves, they are waiting on others to help them. They want their pastors to pray for them. Or, they will call every prayer line across […]

Keystone Pipeline

The Keystone Pipeline is NOT just about jobs. While jobs are certainly one component in favor of it, the biggest issue is national security. It’s about reducing our dependence for a vital national requirement (energy) from nations that generally despise us even though they covet our money. Am I the only one who remembers the […]

Locals Discuss Racism

Dear Editor: Nothing brings out the racists more than celebrating Martin Luther King Day and having a black president. Many whites think it’s a joke to celebrate MLK and refuse to honor a black man or accept a black president. On a trip to the barbershop the day after MLK Day with a shop filled […]
