Reader Praises Seilhan Family Article

Dear Editor,

If you get the Jennings Daily News, make sure you read the articles of Sunday, May 11, on the front page. The headline news of the young Seilhan family is something to read, for we don’t see this much nowadays. Also, with the other good articles, this is the FIRST time in a long time that I pick up the newspaper and not see ‘crime and destruction’ all over the front page.

Remember the recent headline of the individual with the big smile asking for his picture to be taken while being arrested for cocaine posession? There seems to be those who take being arrested and use of illegal drugs, etc., as humorous. Law and order appear to be nothing more than a nuisance rather than a way of life. Criminals now have free food, medicine, climate control and entertainment when jailed. Except for the inconvenience of not being able to come and go at will, their life is not that bad.

However, the majority of the people of Jeff Davis parish seem to agree and decided ‘enough is enough’, and added a new tax upon themselves for a new, long-overdue jail. With completion of the jail, criminals may fear being jailed and not be allowed on the streets due to ‘lack of space’.

I wish we had newspapers that printed ‘good news’ first and the other news last. It would be nice to go to page ‘two’ and further with a smile. Keep the good news first JDN and you will be a ‘first’ among the people of this town and parish.
