|Iraq question not the big issue
January 23, 2008 at 12:45 pm
One of the big issues in this Presidential campaign should be our foreign policy. But just about all the candidates have said on the subject so far has been to get our troops out of Iraq or let them remain.
|New era ahead in St. Charles
January 09, 2008 at 3:05 pm

|Washington should be less partison
January 02, 2008 at 12:45 pm
Last week we reflected on what an exciting year 2008 will be. We’ll have big sporting events in the Crescent City next door. There’ll be a new parish administration and council taking over to solve our local problems. And the state will have a new administration and almost new legislature to help save us from the encroaching Gulf of Mexico.
|Look forward to a big year ahead

Get ready for the most enlightening year in U. S. history.
|Recycling needs to be part of our future
December 20, 2007 at 9:22 am
It makes sense to recycle materials that can be reused instead of dumping them in a landfill as trash. It won’t clutter up the landscape.

December 12, 2007 at 1:46 pm

|Dead zone gets bigger as incentives grow
December 05, 2007 at 12:26 pm
As if Louisiana does not have enough trouble with its eroding wetlands, it is faced with a huge dead zone right off its coast.
November 20, 2007 at 3:40 pm
As we contemplate devouring the turkey drumstick on our platter this Thanksgiving Day, we will express thanks for the many blessings we have experienced during the past year. And there have been many, indeed.
|Chaisson should make good Senate president
November 14, 2007 at 2:30 pm
It looks like St. Charles Parish will be well represented in the upcoming session of the state legislature. Dem. Sen. Joel Chaisson II apparently will serve as Senate president, having secured the backing of many Democratic and Republican senators and also the endorsement of Rep. Gov. Elect-Bobby Jindal.
|Council takes stand against gambling
November 07, 2007 at 11:54 am
At one time, St. Charles Parish was a hot spot for illegal gambling in the State of Louisiana. Many of the restaurants and bars along major thoroughfares had slot machines which were very popular among locals and visitors though in violation of the law.
October 31, 2007 at 12:30 pm
Gov.-Elect Bobby Jindal did not say much about saving the Louisiana coast during the election campaign just past. But there was probably a political reason.
|Herald-Guide supports Jindal for Governor
October 11, 2007 at 10:45 am
The next governor could do a lot for the future of our state - - whether we continue with the type of favoritisms that have led to corruption and unequal benefits and privileges for our citizens or a new posture that promises them fair and equal treatment.
|Governor candidates look like good guys
October 04, 2007 at 7:04 am

September 27, 2007 at 8:08 am
The alligator had just been taken off the endangered species list and some members of St. Charles Rotary Club were looking for an event to raise money for charitable causes.
|Democracy is better than benevolent dictatorship
September 20, 2007 at 8:14 am
Some say that a benevolent dictatorship is the best form of government. That is because a dictator who wants to serve the people well can do what he wants without restraints.
|Iraq is teaching us a lesson
September 12, 2007 at 1:46 pm
Perhaps we learned a lesson in Iraq. We cannot invade another country and expect to make them a democratic friend of ours very easily.
