Welsh Drainage

Dear Editor, I have been living in my present home on Cooper Street since 1994. For a number of years I would have trouble flushing my toilet when there was a significant rainfall. If I got in touch with a town worker or the superintendent, someone would go to the pump on the corner of […]

Trent Family Speaks Out

Dear Editor, This letter is for the person who wrote the story about Christopher Trent immediately after his death. For you to write such a story while the family was grieving was a show of very poor taste. I thought when you die a newspaper was to print the obituary, not to print past history […]

Reader Shares Views

Here is the Valley of Bones, full of sticks and stones. There in the Valley lay I, there I shall surely die. Oh! For the touch of someone, the touch of someone who cares. He comes from out the East and West, I feel His Spirit, as one who shares. God’s Spirit comes to give […]

Come Together

Dear Editor, According to Ripley’s Believe it or not, once Jennings had more churches than any other town of its population. What I do not understand is that when folks came from Texas, Arkansas, Kentucky, Tennessee, and other states on their own dime to participate in a free Christian Country Concert put on by a […]

Seeking the Father God

When people experience freedom through repentance, in our relationship to God, we are able to worship Jesus, the reviver.

Dear Dr. Boustany:

I just saw an article claiming that any attempt to remove John Boehner as Speaker of the House would see the Democrats supporting him to prevent that from happening. While I find it hard to believe that would be true, if it is it indicates that Boehner is little more than a Trojan Horse for […]

A real Louisiana Plan

This unique group, working as a consensus-building block of state elected officials, has composed this “Open Letter to the citizens of Louisiana.” They point out the areas of agreement between those opposed to the national Common Core standards and the aligned test PARCC, and those who support the national standards and test, and tend to […]

Protect Social Security and Medicare

7th District of Louisiana House Office Building Washington, DC 20151-3705 As your constituent, and a supporter of the National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare, I am writing to urge you to please oppose any legislation, plan or recommendations that will in any way harm the benefits, structure or traditional role of Social Security […]

Do we elect kings?

Do we allow any president the authority to create new law or modify existing law with a stroke of the pen? Do we allow any president to eliminate laws by simply ignoring and not enforcing the ones he does not like? If we allow these things, do they not render Congress irrelevant? After all, if […]

It’s time to get to work

The polls may say that the people want some cooperation in Washington, but if that were their primary goal they would have elected a Democrat-controlled Congress willing to pass the Obama agenda without controversy or opposition. Obviously, they did not elect that Congress and instead gave congressional control to the Republicans in spite of having […]
