John Congratulates Landrieu

Dear Editor, On behalf of the tens of thousands of men and women who work in the oil and gas industry in Louisiana, let me congratulate Sen. Mary Landrieu in being named Chairman of the US Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources. Her support of the industry will give a tremendous boost to Louisiana’s […]

Reader Responds to Letter

Dear Editor, I’d like to urge readers to go back and read my letter (published in the Jennings Daily News Sunday, Feb. 16, 2014). I did not say everyone who did not vote for Barack Obama or criticizes him is a racist. I said some so-called Christians were racist. The responses I got were what […]

Dear Editor The number one priority of the federal government is national security. As a representative of the people, that must be your number one priority as well. With China developing missiles that can destroy our largest ships, Iran developing nuclear weapons, N. Korea working to threaten our mainland with nuclear missiles, Russia led by […]

Dear Editor, Our local political expert, analyst, critic continues to submit his weekly Fox News-like letters complaining about President Obama and Democrats blaming them for everything wrong with our government. He provides percentages, statistics, and other information, hopefully to substantiate his allegations. One glaring purposeful omission is America’s job approval rating of Congress. It’s the […]

Dear Editor, Our nation, and its future, will depend not just on education of our youth, but on truthful  education of our youth. Noah Webster, called the father of American scholarship and education, and whose name appears on the Merriam-Webster dictionary, said “Society requires that the education of youth should be watched with the utmost […]

Reader Responds to Letter

Dear Editor, Back on Feb 16 you published an “Letter to the Editor” that resorted to the tired old liberal argument that anyone who disagrees with Obama or his policies is racist. It is sad that people like that writer cannot make a reasoned, logical, intelligent argument and are forced to fall back on playing […]

Sheriff Addresses Public

Dear Editor and citizens, Recently our office has come under fire by an investigative reporter from New Orleans and an author of fictitious stories. They have written some very negative articles involving the Jeff Davis Sheriff’s Office, including the Multi-agency Investigative Team (MAIT) formed under former Sheriff Ricky Edwards on the eight deaths that occurred […]

A Political Prediction

Mary Landrieu has voted along with President Obama 90 percent of the time regardless of the opinion of her constituents here in Louisiana. The most infamous of her votes, being the deciding vote, that allowed “Obamacare” to become law.(The worst law that has ever been passed in the bad history of lawless people who represent […]

Local Gives Opinion

Dear Editor, It’s amazing how hypocritical some Bible-thumping, verse-quoting, church-going, so-called Christians are when it comes to our president. These people have one common Christian flaw. They will not accept that all men are created equal. They refuse to believe other people of certain races are their equal and would rather be damned than to […]

Reading and Writing

Dear Editor, On the “opinion” page of today’s Advertiser there are three different ideas on the subject of teaching literacy. Each offers good advice but I fail to see any reference to the relationship between reading and good writing. There is still a lot to be learned after school and most self-educated individuals gain their […]
