Boatright, T. Scott 14.jpg

I realize many people are likely to disagree with me, and I won’t dodge that fact — I’ll face it head on.
But I personally disagree with one of the new physical education standards released Saturday by the Louisiana Department of Education.
The Louisiana Board of Elementary and Secondary Education will vote on the new rules on Tuesday and Wednesday. The old standards date back to 2009.

Reader writes on country's values

in

As an American senior citizen, I have had the privilege of living many years in this wonderful country. I have seen and lived through many good times. I have marveled at the advances in technology. However, I am greatly distressed when I see some things happening in America. I am alarmed when I see American citizens who do not cherish traditional values.

in
Moore, Byron 2015.jpg

Question: I just started a new job and the HR guy says I should put as much as I can in our 401K plan. He says I won’t miss the money out of my paycheck, but I’ve got some debts I need to get paid off. Besides, I really don’t know anything about investing. But I like the idea of getting it automatically done so I don’t have to think about it. What do you think?
Answer: We love it when things are convenient, don’t we?
