    Louisiana Gov. Jeff Landry continues his crusade to make it mandatory for athletes to be present during the presentation of the national anthem at the start of athletic activities, not just in Louisiana but across the nation. The Lady Tigers of the LSU women's basketball team were not present during the playing of the anthem prior to their Iowa Elite 8 matchup, which drew the ire of Landry. Though Kim Mulkey's team was doing what it had done on previous occasions, going through their pre-game rituals, this particular instance prompted Landry to...

  • Johnson's Place In History

    Eddie D. Gillis|Apr 25, 2024

    House Speaker Mike Johnson, R-LA has an opportunity to change how historians will write about him in history. Johnson just had the opportunity to do what past House Speakers like John Boehner, Paul Ryan and even Kevin McCarthy couldn't do, that is stand in the face of those far-right-over-the-cliff Republicans who will always keep "party first" in their ideology. Make no mistake about it, Johnson is as conservative as they come, but even he knows that once you take the plunge over the cliff, there is no coming back. Over the weekend, Johnson...

  • False Allegations Wife Drama 2

    Eddie D. Gillis|Apr 18, 2024

    He thought that there was a glimmer of hope. After years of trying to put a life-changing experience behind him once and for all, Matthew Sims found out that it wasn’t meant to be. At least not now. Sims has been in a years-long struggle in the judicial system to clear his name and get back on with his life.

    Disclaimer: All persons are presumed innocent until proven guilty. Monday, April 15, 2024 is a day that will go down in infamy in the history of a young United States of America when a former president formally went on trial for a criminal offense in a real courtroom. The record will show that what happened in a New York City courthouse was not part of a reality television show, nor was it a dramatic depiction of an incident involving another famous figure like Al Capone who was accused of many crimes, but was never convicted, except for tax ev...

  • Sowing Seed for a Loss

    Eddie D. Gillis|Apr 11, 2024

    Donald Trump by all means is not a farmer. He is a little too elite for that. Yes, conservatives don't want to admit it, but just from the results of his fundraiser recently held at his Florida home, he was hanging out with the "fat cats" of wealth. Trump reportedly raised $50 million which will aid him in his fight just to stay out of jail, didn't get all of that much money in one night from the poor people. If that had been someone like Barack Obama doing the same for President Joe Biden, conservatives would have been howling about...

  • Blacks Power Slipping Away

    Eddie D. Gillis|Apr 4, 2024

    There is a lingering concern and disappointment, rooted in the historical struggle for political representation, that surfaces in the mayor's race and even the governor's race, painting a bleak picture for minorities in Louisiana. In the governor's race, Jeff Landry had the name recognition of being the state's Attorney General and challenging (and losing to) John Bel Edwards four years earlier, but the seeds had already been planted. Though Shawn Wilson had been in state government for over...

  • Louisiana Czar, Not Governor

    Eddie D. Gillis|Apr 4, 2024

    Louisiana governor Jeff Landry is in the news, as he had some unkind words to say about the LSU women's basketball team following their loss to Iowa in the NCAA tournament. Somehow, Landry became aware that the Lady Tigers were not on the basketball court during the national anthem playing. Never missing a step to proclaim his love for the country, Landry is now urging the state legislature to draft a bill that he would eagerly sign, revoking the university scholarship of any athlete absent during the national anthem. In a statement, Landry...

    Eddie D. Gillis|Mar 28, 2024

  • Day Of Reckoning Coming

    Eddie D. Gillis|Mar 28, 2024

    By Eddie D. Gillis Donald Trump may have dodged a bullet on Monday, March 25, 2024, when a judge ruled that he didn’t have to pay $464 million to keep his empire from crumbling. With seemingly nowhere to turn and no one, not even his fellow billionaires, willing to bail him out, Trump faced further embarrassment. To many Americans, it was a sad spectacle, witnessing someone who had boasted all his adult life about how rich he was and his achievements in real estate. Until late Sunday night, March 24, 2024, that world seemed on the brink of c...

  • Fight Bystander Cut

    Eddie D. Gillis|Mar 21, 2024

    Disclaimer: All persons are presumed innocent until proven guilty. Most of us are taught to help someone when we see them in a situation where they might be in need. That kind of teaching perhaps goes back to the biblical account of The Good Samaritan, where a person in need was passed over by those who could have done something. Since then, people have done things for others in need, sometimes to the peril of their own safety. A local woman who was said to have acted in a similar manner was all...

  • New Richwood Voters Unable To Vote

    Eddie D. Gillis|Mar 21, 2024

    An incident recently occurred where Caderrian White lives, prompting him to call for the aid of law enforcement. When officers from the Monroe Police arrived, he was told that because of his address, there wasn’t anything they could do.

White became a first-time registered voter about a month ago, as he was looking forward to voting in the upcoming elections. Incumbent Mayor Gerald Brown and the Richwood board of alderpersons are all up f...

  • LA Governor's Unions Assault

    Eddie D. Gillis|Mar 21, 2024

    Jeff Landry has been governor of Louisiana over two months. Two Months may be a short time in a four-year term, but when one looks at what the governor has done after waiting eight years to sit where he currently is now, the next 45 months surely will undo what John Bel Edwards did in 8 years. Landry is as about as right-wing as other southern governors, as he told voters what his intentions were long before campaigning started, perhaps when it became known early who Republicans in Louisiana were replacing Bel Edwards. He led off with his...

  • Shots Fired, Mother Escapes

    Eddie D. Gillis|Mar 14, 2024

  • Bloodbath Comment Not a Gaffe

    Eddie D. Gillis|Mar 14, 2024

    The conventions to formally nominate the presumed nominees for the 2024 presidential election have not been held, but try telling that to Donald Trump and President Joe Biden. Both men have been trading election rhetoric since clinching the required delegates on Super Tuesday, as it is only a formality to drop the balloons on Trump and Biden because the campaigning is in full swing. Since both parties have paid for their hotel rooms and convention space, they might as well let the delegates go and do what is legally required to officially get...

  • Unusual Funds Findings

    Eddie D. Gillis|Mar 7, 2024

  • Dictator State Ahead?

    Eddie D. Gillis|Mar 7, 2024

    Has anyone noticed how far Louisiana has moved to the right since Jeff Landry became governor? Voters and even some legislators are not surprised at the speed at which the governor is pushing the state further to the right, similar to his counterparts in other southern states such as Arkansas, Mississippi, and Alabama. One could also include Texas in the mix. One has to wonder just how far Landry is willing to take the state, and the answer is as far as conservative legislators will bring bills for him to sign. One of the bills rapidly heading...

  • Willis Should Continue Case

    Eddie D. Gillis|Mar 7, 2024

    Donald Trump is a desperate man and, according to those who know him, someone who is going broke. Trump may be concerned about his bottom line and status in the billionaire club (at the bottom), but his biggest concern, and perhaps fear, is where he will stand after the first Tuesday in November 2024. If the former president were a betting and praying man, where would one think he would place his faith to get himself out of the quagmire he is in? It wouldn’t be his lawyers, who are not only doing their best to keep him out of court but also get...

  • Delta Community College Protest Met With Repercussions

    Eddie D. Gillis|Feb 29, 2024

    A protest was held at Louisiana Delta Community College on February 21, 2024, to bring attention to the alleged unfair pay and treatment of its employees. Spokesperson Robert Jordan, an employee at Delta, stated that it wasn't about them personally but about everybody who can't speak out or is afraid to speak up. "Somebody has to do something," Jordan said, "Therefore, my wife Samantha (who is now fired) and I decided to take that role." Allegations of no-cause termination and discrimination of...

    Eddie D. Gillis|Feb 29, 2024

    Disclaimer: All persons are presumed innocent until proven guilty. In today's world, it's crucial to be aware of your surroundings at all times.

Monroe Police responded to a report on February 12, 2024, involving a male who allegedly pointed a firearm at a woman while she was driving with...

  • Kissing The Ring for the VP Spot

    Eddie D. Gillis|Feb 29, 2024

    Donald Trump “won” a big victory in the Republican South Carolina presidential primary recently and if one had blinked, they would have missed something. Oh, nothing spectacularly, because the fight for the delegates’ vote was over before voters even went to the polls. The election was called minutes after polls closed, because on information gained from various polls and what voters said to pollsters, Trump was already calling for President Joe Biden to start debating him about the issues. It wasn’t about confidence on Trump’s part, as he kne...

  • Before The Fall

    Eddie D. Gillis|Feb 22, 2024

    America does not have a king or queen who is our “head" of state. Many say that is the reason why British people fled their homeland just to get away from monarch rulers who lived like kings with all of the power and hardly anything for the little man. “No representation” they said, all the while paying taxes, but hardly anyone spoke on their behalf. We must remember, God told His people what it would cost them if they wanted a king and not Him as their provider/protector. Still they wanted a king just like the Gentiles had theirs to provi...

    Eddie D. Gillis|Feb 15, 2024

A scathing report from a firm called Madison Trust Co. lists the city of Monroe as the number 1 metro area for households living below the poverty level. This means that Monroe has one of the highest percentage (42.90%) of households in the entire nation living below the poverty line. Coming in at a close second was the city of Pine Bluff, AK, at...

  • Top Cop Back

    Eddie D. Gillis|Feb 15, 2024

    It has been a year-long struggle for former interim police chief Reggie Brown, but the effort to win reinstatement within the Monroe Police Department has paid off. Following a recent ruling by the Second Circuit Court of Appeal, Brown is well on his way back to being employed by the city's police department. In a February 2024 ruling, the court asserted that a reviewing court was "out of bounds" when it overruled a decision by the Monroe Municipal Fire and Police Civil Service Board that ruled...

  • Career-Ending Injustice, Pt. 4

    Eddie D. Gillis|Feb 15, 2024

    When Lorethie "Loe" Dunn went on FMLA in 2014, she never came back to her job as Campus Director at the Bastrop Campus, her last day was July 14. 2014. She retired on Oct. 1, 2014 and a retirement ceremony was held in her honor on November 14 of the same year. Dunn had not made plans to leave her career in the manner in which she did, as her goal was to work forty years on the job and see what would happen after that. During 2014, Dunn's relationship with the school's administrators had soured...

  • Next US President Will Be Old

    Eddie D. Gillis|Feb 15, 2024

    People from both sides of political spectrum will be talking about one thing between now and election day. The flavor for the months to come will be about President Joe Biden being too old to serve another term as president. Right-wing media are running stories non-stop about the president being past his time to be in any office, let alone that of the presidency. Biden is 81 years-old, which many will agree that is kind of old to serve in a job as demanding as that of the presidency. However, for some reasons that defy logic, many are...

  • Career-Ending Injustice, Pt.3
