Speaking Out for Louisiana Citizens

By Pete Abington

The BP has been agreed on and Louisiana is set to get $18.7 billion to settle government claims over the 2010 Deep-Water Horizon disaster. This will be a boon to many in Louisiana. But before we receive the money, we have to settle up with the lawyers, who are to receive just short of $43 million. In addition, all of these lawyers had the benefit of extensive legal work already done by a steering committee of court appointed lawyers - some of them from Louisiana who are in line to receive as much as $600 million that is not part of the $18.7 billion settlement.

Remembering When. . .

Most of my early childhood memories are about me and Pee Wee. She and I were less than two years apart and she was my shadow from the time she learned to walk. And walking was our most favorite past time. Walking and talking and making believe, building air castles, that is what gave us pleasure.We loved to walk down the railroad track near our house, the Missouri Pacific Line, and we knew the daily schedules of the trains so we could walk in safety.

Patchwork

It’s going to be a busy autumn. Already I am yearning for cooler temperatures, the falling leaves, weiner roasts and football!!I’m counting down the days until the Saints play!! Got my black and gold jerseys out and I’m ready to cheer for New Orleans. Of course, I’m also a Denver Broncos fan because of Peyton Manning; a New York Giants fan, because of former Ole Miss quarterback Eli Manning; and now I’ve added the Seattle Seahawks to my list of teams to root for……because of the unmatched Jimmy Graham.

Remembering When

By Lola Russell

I will soon be celebrating my 90th birthday. I can no longer deny nor should I want to. I just hope it is not as big a deal as the one that in enjoyed on my 80th. For one thing, since then, my 80th John, nor PeeWee and Nita will not be there this time. In preparing for it, my son and daughter-inlaw asked me to pick out some of the stories that I wrote earlier about my siblings and me. I have run out of new subjects that are interesting, but I will re-write some of them, as they want to have them made into a book to give to a few relatives.

Patchwork

By donna smith ammons

In Sunday School at the First United Methodist Church of Many, we open each Sunday morning session talking about “God moments.” Sometimes, it’s hard to recall a God moment from the busy week. Other times, we are all prepared to share. For the past several weeks I have been too busy to stop and enjoy a God moment. But this week, I have one! Hubby-dear and I took a day off and went to Shreveport to pick up a few supplies at Home Depot. Since I rode along, I got to stop at several stores and enjoy a little shopping! My favorite hobby!!

Remembering When. . .

by Lola RussellYesterday on Sunday morning, July 16, I attended the 125th homecoming celebration of Aimwell Baptist Church on Toledo Bend lake. I united with that membership in the early 1970s as we were there every weekend and I knew the importance of bringing up my little boy in church. In order to get there in plenty of time to be able to meet and reet former members as they came in the front door, I set my alarm to go off at 4:30 a.m. I was ready and pacing the floor when the children picked me up two hours later. I was so anxious to see friends that I hadn’t seen in a long time. I didn’t plan to stay for the meal so I had to do all the visiting I could before the services began. There was a whole lot of hugging going on.

Patchwork

by donna smith ammons The power of a squirt gun still amazes me. As a child, a small plastic squirt gun provided hours of entertainment. We’d have squirt gun fights…running and hiding and then attacking each  ther with streams of water. Sometimes. We’d be laughing so hard, we couldhardly talk.  Years went by and when my sons were young, we’d arm ourselves with squirt guns and have battles in the yard. I’ve even played with squirt guns with my grandchildren. It’s an easy way to pass an afternoon…especially when it is hot. Recently, I became the mother to a tiny kitten, Gibbs. He’s a cute little tabby, but he was raised in the wild and has become an attack cat. My arms look like I’ve been in a fight with a tiger. He leaps at me with  claws bared on all four paws and his tiny mouth wide open…with his teeth  glistening
