Solving the parish airport problem

Solution 1: Recruit pilots residing in St. Landry Parish. Select the most experienced and retired one; offer to hire this person as the airport administrator. Ask the remaining pilots to serve on a newly formed airport board (volunteer) With this proven experience in place, parish government will not have a budget problem. A well trained administration staff will handle the billing for aircraft parking. A large sign should be available in the hanger. Park, pay, or fly away.

Farewell after 4 decades plus

After 40 years at Eunice High School and 41+ years in education, I wish to express my most profound appreciation to the offices of administration, faculty, staff, students — past and present — and friends as Iannounce my retirement effective Sept. 14.
Serving the community of education, particularly as a Bobcat, has been a great joy and blessing.

Grannies need to tend to home

Recently I was informed through the news media that several “Grannies” were gathering in Houston then traveling to McAllen, Texas, to find out first hand the disposition of the children separated from their parents after crossing the border into the United States from Mexico. . I wish them a safe trip and hopefully they will be met by the proper Border Patrol authorities and provided with the correct explanation for their concerns about the physical conditions, housing and other concerns they may have for taking this lengthy trip.

Time for a congressional lie detector test

I am going to write this letter using the most simple grammar I can muster up in order for each member of Congress to understand without the use of an assistant. I don’t care if you have a D, R, I or No Party behind your name. I, like millions of Americans are tired of your intentionally delaying, bickering, lying,using party affiliations and several other stupid reasons for not performing the duties you were elected. You have entirely too many committees in Congress. As we say in the Deep South “one hand does not know what the other is doing.” You are in that position.

Bravo to many in Eunice

BRAVO TO EUNICE for selecting doctor of pharmacy Charles Feucht as Eunice Rotary Club’s 2017 Citizen of the Year. If any project was meaningful and worthwhile he engaged, participated and successfully completed entirely too many to list. Humans of this stature are few and far apart and Eunice has thrived with the presence of Mr. Feucht. In accepting the award Mr. Charles made a very moving and humble comment.
