Recall committee addresses public

Dear Editor, We want to reiterate the reason our committee in Welsh has taken on an effort to remove Alderman Jacob C. Perry from the position he holds in our Town. Since the beginning of this year (only 6 months), our town has borne the brunt of terrible emails, letters to the editor, letters to […]

Alderman addresses derogatory postcards

Dear Editor, Most recently, postcards were distributed referring to me and Alderman Andrea King as both “terrorists”. In addition, derogatory references, such as “Despicable Me Perry” and “Golliwog King” were used to describe us. Personally, having someone send out media which described me in derogatory terms is frustrating. Although, I acknowledge that insults are the […]

Citizen asks official to make  amends

Dear Editor, “I am only one. But still, I am one. I can not do everything. Because I can not do everything, I will not refuse to do the something I can do.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson When you realize you have made a mistake that effects others, it is your duty to try and […]

Resident thanks Bertrand for his service

Dear Editor, Our mayor had/has all the qualities necessary to be a great leader of our town. One of those qualities is that he is human. Frankly, I wouldn’t want a mayor that wasn’t! Personally, I wish he had stuck it out. But, of course, I understand it was his very personal decision to make. […]

Hall Post 19 of the American Legion, Department of Louisiana, would like to thank Dona Smith, Sheila Smith, Aubrey Broussard and the staff of the Jennings Daily News for publishing the article entitled “Heroes Legacy” on the front page of the May 28, 2017 edition of the Jennings […]

Alderman responds to petition

Dear Editor, On March 18, 2017, Mr. Kyle Todd was quoted by the Lake Charles American Press as saying, “I think that members of our local government should work together instead of going to outside entities to try and prove something.” If there is nothing to prove, then why should Mr. Kyle Todd be concerned? […]

Committee members explain recall attempt

Dear Editor, A committee of Welsh residents has filed a petition to recall Alderman Colby Perry. Recalling a legally elected official is not a comfortable or easy thing to do, and it shouldn’t be.  We hope this explains our position. Mr. Perry is one of four new Welsh Aldermen who took office in January 2017. […]

Reader weighs in on abortion issue

Dear Editor, Abortion IS a moral and political issue. It became political when the Supreme Court made abortion legal across our nation. It is impossible to separate the two if a person wants to do right by our Maker. Isn’t it wiser to vote our conscience and be morally correct? Many women who have had […]

Reader thankful for outpouring

Dear Editor, There was a song we used to sing in church when I was growing up that went something like this : “Love lifted me, love lifted me, when  nothing else could help, love lifted me!” Since August 27, the kind words, prayers, cards, texts, Facebook messages, calls, flowers, plants, visits, the food provided […]

Resident weighs in on author

Dear Editor, While I was employed in Washington, D.C., as a Sr. federal employee, what was happening in my hometown of Jennings years back was always both unbelievable and, after numerous unsolved murders, “never added up.” Then comes along a book some call trash and some call a masterpiece of investigation.  Ethan Brown’s “Murder in […]
