Help celebrate Juneteenth

Every year on June 19, the nation stops to celebrate a special occasion that has long been a memory of freedom for those who were able to be a part of it.
Otherwise known as Juneteenth, Emancipation Day or even Freedom Day, June 19 is more than just another day in a month. It is the official holiday honoring African-American heritage by commemorating the abolition of slavery in the state of Texas.
Since then, the celebration has spread from Texas to all over the United States and right into Lincoln Parish’s own Grambling.

“You’re a grand old flag, You’re a high flying flag; And forever in peace may you wave.
You’re the emblem of, the land I love. The home of the free and the brave.”
These words are familiar to most of us with its tune, the words having been written in 1906. As your writer was about to start, the tune of this great American song kept sounding over and over in my mind, thus today’s topic.

Woman discusses abortion and politics

in

The Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act, a ban on gender-based abortions that failed in the U.S. House recently, was a disgusting abuse of public sentiment and values in the ongoing Republican vs. Democrat political power struggle.
According to a June 4 opinion piece in the Washington Post, “The ‘pro-choice’ community was backed into a difficult, and illogical, position last week” by their stance against the bill.

Man: Residents’ needs lost to ambition

in

Gov. Jindal can claim victory in the just completed legislative session but — thank goodness — the facts prove otherwise.
As the session started, Democrats in the House of Representatives pronounced the governor’s retirement package dead on arrival. For the most part, we were right.

Writer encourages voting based on values

in

If we are Christians, we should vote the way Christ would vote.  Jesus would vote for righteousness, and so must we if we are to be a Christian nation.  Righteousness means taking a stand for what is morally right and just.  As a Christian nation our standard for what is morally right is the Bible.  Otherwise, we become our own standard, in which everyone will do what is right in their own eyes.  This will lead to our destruction. This is why our nation is crumbling right before our eyes.

Did you ever anticipate something, which turned out even better than you expected? That’s what has happened with my trip up east.
I’m having an amazing time. The quick and easy plane trip, although rainy, was a smooth ride, so I was able to read my new book “Fearless” on my Kindle without getting airsick. In fact, I was so engrossed, I couldn’t believe it when we began to land at the Washington Reagan International Airport.

Adventures in baby-sitting

Carter, Bill.jpg

My wife and I recently babysat our 6-month old grandson for a couple of days while our daughter and son-in-law sought much needed R&R. Our first day was actually the second day of “solid” food for the boy.
I understood the cereal part of the pediatrician diet and was on board with the fruit formula. Actually I prefer my apples and peaches more “solid,” but he was supposed to be eating this, not me.

Know Internet dating red flags

in
Faircloth, Debra.jpg

Although abusers typically have Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde personalities which exhibit a pleasing façade to those outside the abusive relationship, they never perfectly mask their intent. In the same way that a boxer telegraphs a punch, the abuser gives him or herself away with certain behavioral clues. It’s important to identify these clues as early as possible in any relationship, but Internet relationships are particularly problematic.
