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 […]

Voter Audit – Get Off My Back!

Editor, Below is my response to my Voter History Audit, sent directly to “American’s for Prosperity”. Certainly other readers are getting these also. I have received my 2nd Voter History Report Card. Notice Number 85511194. I am well aware of my voting record since 1978, which on percentage is better than most elected officials. I […]

Reader Addresses Landrieu Comments

Dear Sen. Landrieu: “To be very, very honest with you, the South has not always been the friendliest place for African-Americans,” Landrieu said. “It’s been a difficult time for [President Obama] to present himself in a very positive light as a leader. It’s not always been a good place for women to present ourselves. It’s […]

First Responders Thanked

We thank all of you for your hard work, dedication and coordination as you worked together. […]

Bebee Addresses Public

Often I receive complaints from parents and citizens stating that the Louisiana Department of Education (LDOE) is not following the Public Records Act of Louisiana. The law requires government agencies to provide access to public records as requested by citizens within three business days of the request.   The statute’s intent is to ensure transparency in […]

Reader Talks Mudslinging

I am writing this since I can no longer handle what I am reading regarding my hometown and parish as of late. As you all know from the ruthless and sometimes downright ugly opinions and exaggerated facts, there is a race for district attorney. I understand many have their own reasons, both personally and professionally, […]
