Thanks for great coverage of death
August 29, 2007 at 1:33 pm
To the editor:

Thanks for that great coverage of the death (murder) of my cousin and outstanding citizen Mrs. Hilda Zeringue Warren of St. Rose. The photos were truly an outstanding way to honor her even though she died an uneccessary and senseless death! My hat is off to Shonna Riggs who showed compassion as she covered the story as horrendous as it was. She is to be commended along with the rest of the staff as a whole for a fine job that you normally do always. I think that I can say on behalf of myself, the family and the rest of the community - - thank you, Herald Guide, for a job well done.

I agree with the fact that “Building of levees along the Mississippi River was the main cause of the erosion of our coast...” How can we get the politicians to listen to simple suggestions about how to correct this problem?
