Jason Ard says he wants to put officers in schools because he’s concerned about the safety of our children. I’m looking forward to hear him speak out on the rampant, unchecked distracted driving in LP that’s far more likely to kill or injure our children than a mass shooter.

If the mosquito boys want to do something to help parish residents try getting something done about the stink coming from the Walker Landfill. And yes, it does smell in districts 2 and 3 when the wind is blowing in that direction.

The person that continues to place ugly comments about Mr. Harry, let me start by saying you should be ashame of yourself. You continue to slander him over and over. I myself am sick of seeing the ugly comments. It’s sounds like a bunch of cry babies. I stand behind Mr. Harry 100%. Mr Harry …

Help! Help! State retirees have not gotten a raise in more than 15 years, and we have to have money just like everybody else to buy our necessities. Please, legislators, take this into consideration. We would appreciate it.

To answer another caller asking if there’s a process started to solve the problem of the terrible smell coming from the Walker landfill, the answer is no. If you wonder why, just follow the money and the history of how this landfill developed and expanded.

I am a Livingston Parish parent of a multi-sport athlete child that does not go to Walker High School. While Walker High school now has TWO gymnasiums, we pay for a membership for our child to workout since we don’t even have a weight room at our school, much less a Jumbotron! Our baseball t…

The City of Walker is buying 4.72 acres of land for $680,000, not on Florida Blvd and not close to I-12 where property values are high, but on a tiny residential street off of Walker S Rd. That’s over $144,000 PER ACRE. That’s ludicrous for the city to pay that much for this land! The citize…

It's amusing to read the comments from elected officials regarding the gravity drainage districts servicing the western part of the parish. One would mistakenly think that their great drainage would be the envy of those of us who have no gravity drainage district. I would like to suggest tha…

Pretty sure that LPSB has stopped publishing the personnel lists to cover up what is going on at Walker Elementary. Yet another cover up by the superintendent to keep his friend out of trouble. Pathetic school system and leadership.

I live on Pine Bluff Road off 16 in Denham. I’d like to see what can be done about garbage pile-up. When you go around the third curve to the left, you have got a mound of garbage at that home. There’s two FEMA trailers, and they say they collect scraps, but that is not scraps. All of that i…

Just drive by on a school morning in French Settlement. Normal speed limit is 45, during school time it is 25. Most drivers drive between 40 and 60 during school zones. Where are the cops. At least Harry was out there at least 3 to 4 times during the week. It wasn’t the best, but now we have…

With friends like Rep. Valarie Hodges and Rep. Clay Schexnayder, Livingston Parish and Louisiana public school teachers don’t need enemies. By opposing the forecast of the majority of the Revenue Estimating Committee, Hodges and Schexnayder in effect oppose the pay raise that Gov. Edwards wa…

Recent comments from people defending the Council on Aging donating two vans to a Baton Rouge school perfectly illustrates the arrogance and/or ignorance that has brought about the anti-tax sentiment in this parish.. Do these people seriously not know that Louisiana Public Transportation (DO…

Education levels in the state of Louisiana are not ranked very high in the nation. I see our teachers want a pay raise in 2019. Looking at the LA Department of Education webpage, a total of 360 in the years 2015-16 were terminated or resigned in anticipation of termination. Only six licenses…
