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

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.

Remembering When. . .

by Lola Russell
 
When I pick up the newspaper in the morning, I usually turn to the back page of the front section to see if anyone I know has said goodbye to this world. When I see there is nobody I know, I turn back to another section and ready about the lighter side of life: the comics.

Patchwork

A recent trip to Orange Beach was the perfect way to kick-off my retirement!! Vicki and I headed out early one Thursday morning, a mere two days after I officially became retired, and made it to our destination in seven hours and five minutes. As usual we gabbed all the way. Diann and Granny were ready and waiting when we got there, along with Grady Tuck and Rufus Edward.

ANGELLE GOVERNOR

It was reported several weeks ago that Scott Angelle, Public Service Commissioner, would be a serious candidate in the event he should run for governor. He has now made it official. As stated before, his background will prove to be very useful as he seeks to be elected. Not only will he be well financed, he is running from a very populous part of the state.

Patchwork

My darling grandson, Braeden, who is nearing his fourth birthday, has taken over the blessing prior to meals. The job of saying
grace has been Riley Kate’s job for years and now she willingly lets little brother do the honors. We were all gathered around my big round table one night recently and it was time for the blessing. We held hands and bowed our heads

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.”
