Guest editorial: From The Advocate

Fans of the New Orleans Saints were famously noisy on Sunday as the team squared off at Mercedes-Benz Superdome in the NFC championship against the Los Angeles Rams for a chance to compete in this year’s Super Bowl.
Although the game concluded days ago with a 26-23 loss to the Rams, members of Who Dat Nation remain as vocal as ever, angry about the failure of NFL officials to penalize Rams cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman for pass interference and helmet-to-helmet contact after he broke up a pass to Saints receiver Tommylee Lewis.

Letter to the editor: Writer doesn’t believe Democrats on promises

If you want to know how much credibility or assurances of the program the Democrats are “pushing” for the border and its security, just listen to the litany of promises they had in “pushing” for Obama Care. Remember how that “Affordable Care Act” was going to save the average family about $2,000 per year; and you could keep your present plan and doctor if you elected to do so, along with so many other promises they lied about?
TV clips of all those promises should be played for the public to see to remind everyone about the issue. How well did all this work out for us?

A time to thank those who proudly serve our nation

Veterans Day is not a day for sadness for our fallen comrades though we remember them with love and respect, their day is in May. We, the living celebrate our day in November. In November after celebrating the warmth of the summer and the gradual coming of fall, closing the books on another year, we come to Veterans Day, for all of us that went and returned, different men and women, of course, some stronger, some affected so badly they never truly came home.

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.
