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.

RICHARD NIXON

The fortieth year anniversary of Richard Nixon’s resignation from the presidency is being recognized at this time. That was a turbulent time in America and for the Nixon family. Richard Nixon came in the office on the heels of Lyndon B. Johnson, who escalated the Vietnam war. Nixon had just won re-election by defeating George McGovern handily. No one could  understand anyone burglarizing his opponent’s campaign headquarters in Washington

Patchwork

School started last week. That in itself is a mouthful. School supplies have been disappearing off the shelves. Snacks have been stacked away in the pantry. New shoes are being broken in……and everyone is going to bed a little earlier now that summer days have come to a close

EDMONSON AMENDMENT

The issue on La. State Police Mike Edmonson getting a sneaky $55,000 annual boost for the rest of his life in his retirement
certainly smells. This matter will get swept under the carpet unless voters speak out. A meeting of the La. State Police
Retirement System Board was to be held this past week into how this actually happened- how it got sneaked past the legislature

State Obamacares its employees’ health insurance

By John Kennedy, State Treasurer
 
The state of Louisiana has “Obamacared” its own employees’ health insurance plan. Here’s how. One of the problems with the federal Affordable Care Act (called “Obamacare” by the President himself) is the way it’s paid for: with $700 billion of taxpayer money taken from Medicare. Many Louisiana officials, myself included, have criticized this. That’s why it’s so disappointing and more than a little ironic that the state has done the same thing to its own State Group Benefits (SGB) health insurance plan for 230,000 active and retired state employees, their spouses and children.

Patchwork

The choir of the First United Methodist Church has been in rehearsals for several months. No, they are not practicing for a cantata or special program. This time, choir members plus several church members and friends are on stage, practicing for a fundraiser…a dinner theater, to be exact! “Dearly Beloved” is a two-act comedy written by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope and Jamie Wooten. It is a hilarious, true-to-life skewering of a Texas family who are preparing for a wedding.

“I knew him when he was a Tiger!!!”

For the past four years, I have watched with great interest, the biggest kid on the Many High Tiger football team. One could say he stood out. Going into his senior year on the gridiron in August 2014, Garrett Thomas is keeping his focus on the District 3-2A title and a run on the state championship in the La. Super Dome in New Orleans
