TIME TO VOTE

Either you have already voted absentee or it is time to vote today, November 8th. Whatever, here are some thoughts worth remembering. You’ve heard it said before, and it certainly rings true today. There is a saying “Are you better off today than you were two years ago?” Inflation, open borders, crime, drugs, gasoline prices, abortion with no restrictions and the list just goes on and on. This has happened since we turned the controls of this nation over to the Democrats and Joe Biden. Our nation is suffering in so many ways and we must make a stand.

Hopefully this will be done this time. It is important that you make your decisions as to what to do to save this nation. (If you didn’t receive the Index until Wednesday, November 9th, we sincerely hope you were able to go to the polls and cast your vote in favor of conservatism and Christianity.

Letters to Editor: Libraries provide valuable local services for all, not just a privileged few

Dear Editor, Everyone who knows me, knows I am a BIG FAN of our library. I was invited to write a letter on behalf of our library 11 years ago and I’m delighted to write again today. For full transparency you should know I accepted a position on the library board in October of 2021. However, I’m not speaking to you as a library board member, I’m speaking to you as a fellow taxpayer.

I am privileged to be able to purchase books and magazines; many are not. I am privileged to afford an outing at any movie theater; many are not. I am privileged to have Wi-Fi services and a computer; many are not. This isn’t about what I can afford; it is about those who are not privileged, who need and depend on our library services. Those of us who are privileged to own property, to afford things, we are the ones who are called to help those who cannot.

PITIFUL CANDIDATE

It is pitiful that the Democratic candidate for Pennsylvania in the U. S. Senate, is John Fetterman. Surely we are sad that he has had a stroke and with the rigors of a campaign, he is liable to have another one. It looks as if his wife or the Democratic Party would say, whoa. This man is not healthy enough to be a candidate representing Pennsylvania. Here is an example of his response to his previous opposition to fracking with natural gas.

“I’ve always spirted fracking,” he stated when he was pressed by a moderator. He had always oppposed it. He later added, that “I do support fracking and I don’t, I don’t- - support fracking and I stand, and I do support fracking.” He stumbled around his whole debate on questions. He has repeatedly said that he is opposed to fracking but he is trying to wiggle out of his stance. The voters will suffer. It’s like just putting a body in office who will support all the Democrats issues, no matter what.

OPINION: Have you lost your faith?

When we hear the word ‘faith’ we usually think of religious faith but faith is actually much more than that. Faith is present in our lives every day and we usually don’t think about it.

Faith is the belief in something that you can’t prove or don’t understand. When you’re driving down the highway at sixty miles an hour and another car is going the other way at sixty miles an hour and you’re only separated by lines painted on the road it’s not the lines that keep you from a head on collision - it’s faith. You have faith that the other driver will stay on his side of the road and he has faith that you will do the same. You don’t know what the other guy’s thinking and don’t know what he’ll do but you have faith that he will stay on his side of the road.

Check for unclaimed money, says State Treasurer Schroder

Readers of your newspaper should find extra value in reading your paper (Editor, please fill in here “next week” or actual day or date) when the State Treasurer’s Office will publish the names of individuals for whom we received new, unclaimed property money in the preceding year.

The State Treasurer’s Office is holding more than $900 million in unclaimed funds for current and former Louisiana residents. We are responsible for getting this money back into the hands of citizens to whom it belongs. Whether it was 10 days ago, or 10 years ago, this is their money and we will hold it for them until they claim it.

Common examples of unclaimed property include unpaid life insurance benefits, forgotten bank accounts, uncashed payroll checks, stock dividends and utility deposit refunds. When checks are not cashed or accounts go dormant, and the company is unable to locate the owner, the funds are sent to the Treasury for safekeeping.

INSTANCE OF A SHOCK

I was invited to a very nice home the other night in Shreveport and I was shocked to hear the owner of the house say that they thought it was terrible the way the governor of Florida has done the immigrants by sending them to Martha’s Vineyard. Thee said it’s so cruel. I briefly mentioned the fact they crossed the border illegally and should not even be here, but I could tell I ‘getting anywhere. I got up and left the room for a minute and I looked around and all I could see was MSNBC on their television. These people have no idea the real facts about what is going on in the United States. I challenge this in most cases. ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC - you name it - are not going to broadcast anything negative about the Biden Administration. Our only source of getting the facts is FOX, or One America News and Newsmax.

All I can say to one and all, you had better learn the whole story because this country is hanging on by a strap.

THE TIMES WE’RE IN

It was reported that just three years ago (2019) the United States spent $60 billion on food stamps. This year, more than $220 billion will be spent - that is double the amount. The president keeps calling for more money to be spent, even though he spends money for reasons other than taking care of people who are suffering from hunger. His solution seems to be just spend more money. The federal budget has caused inflation which makes it harder for people to buy food. It’s too expensive. He then offers more free food which will ignite even higher inflation.

Notes from an Old Bible

It’s mind numbing to even consider that Satan actually believed that it was possible for him as a created being to dethrone the Creator while his entire existence was totally dependent on the Creator! He didn’t ask to be created, but God the Creator in His sovereign will has chosen to bring him into existence. His existence was nothing more than a privilege granted to him. What he failed to realize is that the same creative power that created him could have annihilated him in a twinkling of the eye. People often say that Satan is extremely intelligent, which is true to a large extent, but the way we should look at it is that he’s very intelligent in the area of deception and self-delusion. On the other hand, when it comes to common sense, he’s a very stupid, irrational, foolish being. We know this because there’s no way he could think, being a created being, that he can overthrow an all-knowing Creator We know that Satan was kicked out of heaven because of envy, pride, arrogance.

Letters to the Editor offer differing views

Letter to the Editor: I am thankful for this opportunity to be able to express an opinion concerning the upcoming proposition for renewal of the library tax once again in Sabine Parish on 8 November. This happens every ten years for the “purpose of the administration, improvement, operation, maintenance, and support of the Sabine Parish Library and its branches, including the costs of any capital improvements.”

It seems the library system in our parish often receives criticism from some and finds itself at the low end of priorities; much of this could be blamed on the library itself. Librarians seem to be the type of folks who unselfishly do their jobs, do them well, and expect nothing in return. It’s time for the rest of us to stand up in support of our parish libraries. This is not a new tax, as I’m told it began in Sabine Parish back in 1933.
