DON’T GET TRICKED

I noticed this article the other day and I thought it might be good advice for you. There are many stories about how we can 
be tricked by scams and about bad people getting our private information. One lady, who was 66, got a call from someone who reported to be her nephew at 7:10 a.m. The comment from this not-sofamiliar nephew was “Aunt Susan, I am in real
trouble.”

Patchwork

The day is fast approaching for retirement. I can hear laughter already spreading across town. “Yeah right! How many times has Donna already retired?” It’s been three other times and I did retire, I just never left the office. This time I have good intentions. I have been employed by The Sabine Index since 1973. I am in the beginning of my 42nd year.

EDMONSON AMENDMENT

The Edmonson Amendment (Senate Bill 294) was declared unconstitutional by Judge Janice  Clark of the 19th Judicial District. This is a huge win for the ordinary taxpayers of Louisiana. Some of the main players who were instrumental in defeating this amendment are Tom Aswell for uncovering the amendment; State Treasurer John Kennedy for pushing the issue; the Retired State Troopers for providing the invaluable grass-roots effort; Robert Burns for creating a special website
and for filming the activities; and State Senator Dan Claitor for bring the lawsuit (as a taxpayer) whereby the rip-off was declared unconstitutional.

I believe there is a little bit of brainwashing going on in Zachary, home of my oldest son, his expectant wife and their two children, Riley Kate and Braeden. What’s so bad, is that this brainwashing is going on at Braeden’s church school—and it’s Methodist!!

Speaking Out for Louisiana Citizens

Looking at the Public Service Commissioners (PSC) is interesting. You don’t hear a whole lot about this job, but they do have a very large area presence and it is usually a stepping-stone to running for governor. They regulate companies with lots of
money. One of these commissioners is Scott Angelle, who is from Breaux Bridge. He may soon announce his bid for governor.
Angelle is from Southeast Louisiana, but so is Lt. Goernor Jay Dardenne and U.S. Rep John Bell Edwards

Patchwork

 Several weeks ago, I noticed a tiny children’s sticker on the driver’s side window of my car. The colorful sticker was a little Moo-erriffic cow. I didn’t know who put it there or how long it had been there. Just two days ago, I realized that I had another little sticker next to the cow. This one was a reflective, shiny little lamb

CHANGE IN COLLEGE FOOTBALL

If this was last year, it would not be the college play-off system (CFP) and things would be a  whole lot different than this year. The 13 member CFP committee will put out its top 25 every Tuesday from October 28th to December 2nd. The final CFP poll will be released December 7th and it is from that top 25 (no coaches poll, no computer rankings) that’s the team with the two CFP semi-finals for the four other CFP polls will be selected

Patchwork

One night a gang of us girls were sitting around in a dormitory room on the campus of Pearl River Junior College talking. This wasn’t uncommon, since our nightly curfew was 9 p.m. (when the library closed) There had been recent murders on small Southern college campuses and the newest information was that a dorm that began with a “C” would be the next campus targeted by the killer

Patchwork

Sometimes I really question myself. Seems like I am getting forgetful as time passes. Overload? Possibly.Hubby-dear and I have been involved in a play, which was presented at First United Methodist Church last weekend. Nightly rehearsals—sometimes eating a quick burger in the Family Life Center—have become a way of life.
