  • Marsy's Law on the November ballot

    For much of our country’s history, domestic violence was an often hidden crime, with victims hesitant to report abuse and government ill-equipped to provide the services and protection they deserved.

    A CSX train split a tractor-trailer hauling garbage in half after the trailer’s landing gear got stuck on the track at the crossing in Sulphur. The trailer was taking garbage to Valley View Landfill. The driver from Monroe, La., said they were not aware of the 44,000 lbs. weight limit on that road. He left the truck and attempted to flag down the engineers before the train struck the trailer.

  • Why worry? Trust God

    In his book, Soul Detox, Pastor Craig Groeschel explains, “What you fear most reveals what you value most.” Further he states, “What you fear most reveals where you trust God least.”

    Moore replied that he couldn’t take off work, and that was that.

  • Arks and accidents

    Tragedy struck over this past weekend. Thankfully no people or animals were involved. The carpet cleaner burned up. I was attempting to rescue the carpets from the damage wrought by humans, cats and dogs; this chore was way overdue. Overdue to the point I lived in perpetual dread of having anybody coming to the house. When the unexpected person arrived I always told them, “Don’t look at the place.” A plea I learned from my mother.
