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 […]

Reader Shares Views

Dear Editor, This is an open letter to all school personnel involved in their school’s science/social studies fairs. I would like schools to rethink a policy that many schools have that does not allow judges to interview students. As a retired teacher, I co-chaired science and social studies fairs for 25+ years. I never undervalued […]

2015 is here! Wake up and pray!

Start praising the Lord as if the doors of opportunity have already swung open wide. Maybe you are in a low, difficult place today, just as those kings and their men were (2 Kings 3:16-20). You may feel dry and empty. The devil has been telling you that you are losing. You may want to […]

To the Jennings Police Department:

I, Nell Mouton, would like to thank you for all that you do for the community of Jennings. Not only do you protect and serve the community but you also help the families that are in need. With everything going on in the media, I wanted the world to know about our Jennings Police Department. […]

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 […]
