Do Wars defend America’s Freedom?

U.S. politicians and pundits are fond of saying that America’s wars have defended America’s freedom. But the historical record doesn’t bear out this contention. In fact, over the past century, U.S. wars have triggered major encroachments upon civil liberties.

Speaking Out for Louisiana Citizens

There goes the post office, the health unit, Wright’s Appliances, Massingill’s Appliances, Williams Brothers – these are
the places that I recall occupying the old building that was recently destroyed at the corner of Ash Street and San Antonio
Avenue, across the street from Many City Hall.

Patchwork

I feel sorry for the poor old Thanksgiving turkey. All week long, he has been offended. Ladies across the parish have been busy as bees putting up their Christmas holiday decorations and their trees, wreaths and outside lights. It’s not even Thanksgiving yet, girls!!

MARY WANTS IN

Louisiana and most of the nation have long been in favor of the Keystone Pipeline that has been proposed for the last
few years. The pipeline would bring oil from Canada and help reduce our dependency of foreign oil. Although Senator Mary
Landrieu has been in favor of the legislation, she really hasn’t used her clout to shape up the bosses of the Senate.

Patchwork

Hubby-dear and I spent the Halloween weekend in Zachary with Davy, Kt and the grandchildren, Riley Kate and Braeden. The weekend started out with a big party of cousins, aunts, uncles and friends and two pots of gumbo. Most everyone was in costume and excitement rose as the sun set and it was dark enough to go trick-or-treating.

CHEATING IN NORTH CAROLINA

We recently learned that fraud ran unchecked at North Carolina State in the formerly named African and Afro-American Studies (AFAM) department for nearly two decades. It involved more than 3,100 students - about half were athletes - taking
sham classes and earning artificially high grades while poor oversight allowed the problem to worsen.

Patchwork

by donna smith ammons
 
Scotty comes in to The Sabine Index office most days after school. He’s in and out during days off and holidays and I usually get a hug and a quick update on what’s going on in his fourth grade, nine-year-old life!! Besides that we sit together in church. Needless to say, we have a great friendship!!! Several days after I retired on Sept. 30, Scotty began missing me. My office door had been closed by the employees. They said they hated to go by and see an empty office.

WHO TO VOTE FOR

by Pete Abington
 
No doubt you have questions, in some cases, about who to vote for and what the candidate stands for. Back in the day when you had conservatives and left wings in both parties you tended to look more at the individual. You could believe they would do this, or they would do that. Well that is changed now. In the national elections it is all about party and administration. Look at the party platform and administration and that is what the candidate from that party would stand for. Most of these candidates checks in with the party office when elected and basically they vote whatever way the party wants them to - very few exceptions.
