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 […]

Locals Discuss Racism

Well let’s see where I should start. First of all I must say that I am embarrassed to say that I live in the South. For the simple reason that racism is still so very alive and well. I listen to some of my counterparts and it really disappoints me to see so much hatred […]

The Power of Praise

Dear Editor, Many Christians have said, “I know that I do not praise the Lord as much as I should.” None of us gives praise the time or the effort and the intensity it deserves. Do we praise the Lord at all? Do we spend more time of prayer with praise to God or do […]

Rule of Law

Dear Editor, Associated press, 30 Nov. 2014, “Southern Dems urge a return to party basics.” “It’s time to draw a line in the sand not surrender our brand.” My thinking, it’s not only the democrats, the republicans. What is needed is both political parties working together for the good of all America, not what is […]

Reader Shares Views

Dear Editor: It’s hard to find the words to express my opposition to any continuing ethanol mandate, much less making concentrations of ethanol in gasoline even higher. Ethanol as an additive or substitute in gasoline is not only wrong, it seems flat stupid to me. Let me start by saying I have no sympathy, NONE, […]

One Crisis After Another

Dear Editor, Every time I listen to the news I hear about a president that seems to dislike this country and seems to be trying to inject foreign views upon our backs. Day after day he seems to conjure up another offsetting view that rattles a citizen that view America as a haven and a […]
