  • 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...

  • Pro-choice or pro-life?

    So, there's pro-choice and pro-life. Two very different opinions.When I was in college, I thought pro-choice was valid … drank the Kool-aid, so tospeak.One day, I seriously considered what it meant and I realized ONLY one of two sides was given a choice. Since then, I became 100% pro life, because if both sides can't weigh in, there are no true choices!So, here's the conundrum: I'm expected to look the other way and support Planned Parenthood?

  • My pets are spayed and neutered … are yours?

    In a three-week span, myself together with those who have the same admiration for animals, have recovered more than two dozen abandoned, parasite-infested, ailing, infant kittens and pregnant female cats.With breeding season at a peak right now those numbers continue to ascend for us almost daily (one female cat and her offspring can produce 370,000 kittens in seven years).Our shelters are full, our rescues are over-loaded, and too many faultless animals are suffering. Although I strongly feel t...

  • Louisiana needs jobs, not more taxes and lawsuits

    Today Louisianans are facing a risk that threatens our economy and perhaps even our way of life: more job-killing taxes and lawsuits.As Louisiana lawmakers count down to the end of the 2017 Regular Legislative Session, Governor John Bel Edwards is still pushing for a variety of tax measures that will likely make it more difficult for businesses and employers to survive in our state.From the proposed tax on every product or service that is bought or sold in Louisiana, to new employer mandates tha...

  • Woman upset over bus incidents

    I’m writing to let parents know not to be bullied by the school board system. There’s a rule that a child can’t walk pass ½ mile, the school bus has to bring your child home.We live 3 miles from the highway. My child was 10-years old when the bus drivers refused to bring her home.

  • Why I do what I do

    In 1985 the fire district was hiring four fulltime dispatchers to start their own dispatching service for their 8 volunteer fire departments.Having no prior training, I applied and was hired for one of the positions. Thirty-one years later with too many training hours and experience to list, I am still here.People ask me why I chose dispatching as a career. The truth is Dispatching chose me.
