  • Upcoming millage renewal for Lafourche Parish Fire District #3 Saturday

    This Saturday, April 28, LPFD#3 will be on the ballot for voters to decide whether or not to renew the 8-mill property tax, which if passed, will be levied for 10 years.This tax has been in existence since the establishment of LPFD#3 in 1959 and must be renewed every ten years at its fullest. If this tax is renewed it will take effect in 2019.As the community had to tighten their belts because of the decline in our economy, so did we.The funds we collect from our millage annually are the sole so...

  • Mailbox destroyer needs some Cajun manners

    On Saturday, April 21, someone demolished our mailbox in front of our home on Hwy. 1 in Cut Off. It was a thorough job!To that person, here are a few comments we'd like to share:First, you could have left a note saying "Sorry" or "I'll replace/pay" but you didn't.

  • Huge thanks to our local fire department

    On January 22nd, our mother, Felicia Layus, had a very bad fall at home resulting in multiple injuries. Because she had Alzheimer’s, she could not tell us where she was hurting.She was hospitalized for two weeks and in severe pain the entire time. On February 9th, she was sent to my house in Cut Off where Hospice took over her care.When the ambulance arrived the driver said he would need help.

  • Letter to the Editor: Lawsuits are not the answer

    Since 2014, several parishes have filed lawsuits in an attempt to make energy manufacturers pay for rebuilding Louisiana’s coast. These lawsuits are mostly being driven by plaintiff’s law firms that have built reputations for suing our state’s oil and gas companies.Restoring our coast and protecting our wetlands is an important mission, but these lawsuits are not the answer. The reality is that there are many parties that contribute to coastal and wetlands degradation in our st...

  • Criminal Justice Reform can work

    Critics of our criminal justice reform are consistently misleading the public, trying to make it look like we released a crime wave on the streets of Louisiana’s cities. It just isn’t so.One writer said we are putting the public at risk by granting early releases. That’s just fear mongering.Under no circumstances would I risk the safety of the community where I live with my family and where my children are now raising my grandchildren.Besides, most of these people were released...

  • U.S. Senator John Kennedy a key vote on lawsuit reform bill

    It is no secret that frivolous litigation has skyrocketed in recent years. As more and more personal injury trial lawyers seek to use and abuse our legal system for their own personal gain, lawsuit filings have gone through the roof.We see the evidence of this all day everyday. Everywhere we look, we are bombarded by aggressive legal advertising.

  • How many is just enough?

    How many is just enough? One, five, one hundred and five, when a child is killed or struck down by a speeding driver down your street? How many is just enough when your dog or cat is killed by these speeders down your street?

  • Letter to the Editor

     Senate Democrat’s recent effort to use the Congressional Review Act (CRA) to restore Title II regulations to Internet service providers poses a serious threat to the future of the Internet. If successful, their actions to reinstate burdensome, Obama-era regulations could prevent upstart companies from ever taking off and hinder the expansion of broadband networks, two factors critical to the American economy.The Obama FCC radically altered the regulation of Internet service when it s...
