Speeders make Maryland Drive dangerous
April 08, 2011 at 9:35 am
Dear Editor,
For many years; as my children were growing up; I crusaded to have speeding curtailed on Maryland Drive in Luling.
I was told that speed bumps were not an option since they would cause a liability issue with emergency vehicles.

March 18, 2010 at 12:22 pm
To the editor:
The article on the front page of the March 11, 2010 St. Charles Herald-Guide contained information on our Spring Heritage Day Events and Civil War Encampment. Instead of representing this as what it is, a positive event, you chose the negative headline of “Destrehan Spring Fest Halted.”

July 06, 2009 at 9:12 am
Dear Editor,
I was really pleased to see that Councilman Tastet is going to try to get the illegal stop sign at the intersection of West Heather and Willowdale Boulevard removed.
He did not go far enough.

June 08, 2009 at 9:20 am
Dear Editor,
I hope each of you had a great Memorial Day weekend. I know one family which did not have a great weekend. Of course I am referring to the Richard family who lost Dorothy on Friday. In the humblest way I would like to address the borrow pit problem and possibly offer a better solution.

Lack of attendance has impact on DHS Baccalaureate ceremony
June 08, 2009 at 9:20 am
Dear Editor,
On Tuesday May 19, Destrehan High School held their Baccalaureate ceremony in the auditorium on campus. The word Baccalaureate is defined as a religious message addressed to a graduating class before commencement day. Faculty, students, and parents put a lot of work into this event and it was a nice celebration. The mantra was from Psalm 37:5, “Commit yourself to the Lord ; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.”

Take extra care when crossing railroad
April 30, 2009 at 9:02 am
Dear Editor,
While it’s true that some railroad crossings aren’t as safe as they could be either from inadequate visibility along railroad tracks and/or their not being signalized, there are still ways to minimize the chances of colliding with any train at any such crossing.

More doctors needed at hospital
April 08, 2009 at 11:44 am
Editor,
I was pleased to see that the hospital bond issue passed Saturday, but only about 5 percent of registered voters were concerned enough to exercise their duty and privilege to vote. But I’ll bet that in the future many residents will be in the emergency room and be very pleased at what they see.

As St. Charles Parish continues to grow, it is imperative that we evolve to meet the changing healthcare needs of our community.
