Dear Editor, Every day some so-called Christians quote Bible verses on Facebook or some other social media then revert to spewing their hatred for Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Democrats, Muslims, Mexicans, immigrants and anyone who opposes Donald Trump. Apparently these Christians didn’t read the entire Bible or overlooked scripture about brotherhood and loving your neighbor […]

Reader responds to recent events

Dear Editor, John F. Kennedy once said in a now famous speech that “our most basic common link is that we all inhabit this small planet. We all breathe the same air. We all cherish our children’s future, and we are all mortal.” Nearly a year has passed since I wrote a letter to the […]

Public Thanked for Relay Support

Dear Editor, On behalf of the American Cancer Society, Jeff Davis Parish Relay for Life Committee, Optimist Club Team and Relay for Life Golf Tournament Committee, I would like to express a great, big “thank you” to everyone that helped make the 10th Annual Relay for Life Golf Tournament a huge success. I would like […]

Dear Editor

I have to start this letter off with the word “Really?” As I observed and watched the presidential candidates, I can only say “Really G.O.P. ,” “Really, Conservatives,” “Really, Republicans,” and last but not least, “Really, America.” I’m 57 years old and have observed several presidential elections, however I can’t recall the last time I […]

I concur. As concerned citizens and land owners, the “No Dollar General in Hathaway, Louisiana” Facebook page […]

Writer addresses previous letter

Dear Editor, This letter responds to a previous letter published in the Jennings Daily News and written by Dr. Chris Achee. I’m just a patient, a 69-year-old man who receives great primary medical care from a nurse practitioner. I have to disagree with Dr. Achee’s position, and I support independent practice for nurse practitioners who […]

Resident discusses Hathaway concerns

Dear Editor, I hated to miss the recent police jury meeting and the subsequent love fest afterwards, on the topic of the Dollar General store in Hathaway. Work always seems to interfere with those type things. I was represented by my police juror though, which is how that works. He attends them so I don’t […]

Dear Editor, We at Caring Hands would like to thank everyone involved with the National Association of Letter Carriers Food Drive. Caring Hands received much needed supplies for our food pantry. We operate solely from contributions and donations. Thanks to our wonderful community and the hard work of our area letter carriers, our pantry is […]

Dear Editor, This is to express concern about the ongoing paving project on La. 97 between Evangeline and Jennings. For many years this stretch of roadway has qualified as the roughest, most poorly maintained, lug bolt untightening road in all the southern states, including (almost unbelievably) Mississippi and Arkansas. To drive this road at speeds […]

Local weighs in on transgender issue

Dear Editor, Since I have seen so many weigh in on this issue, I thought I would throw in my two cents worth as well. From what I have seen, I think it is safe to say that most people feel like we have crossed a line that we should not have crossed in debating […]
