Writer reflects on tenure at Cedar Creek

in

I would like to take this opportunity to wish Cedar Creek School and the Ruston community well as school begins for the 2012-13 school session. I was so proud to see that the Cougars football team defeated BTW on Sept. 13! During my year at Cedar Creek, I saw a group of dedicated coaches and team members who worked extremely hard to improve the program, and that dedication to excellence appears to have paid great dividends.

Resident expresses political views

in

The temperature is freezing. Many do not have adequate clothing or shoes and are suffering from frostbite. Yet, the battle is looming. Ammunition is in short supply, yet the patriots of the newly formed United States of America are ready to fight. Their desire to be free men and support the divinely-inspired new country keep them going. They fought for our freedom, our liberty and the generations that followed them. Think of the horrible conditions they experienced and getting shot at to boot.

Government must wake up

Bleich, Joe C.jpg

Once again, I was naïve. For a fleeting moment I trusted the “efficiency” of our government, specifically the State Department in Washington. Do you remember the old ad for the National Guard: “Sleep well tonight, your national guard is awake.” The State Department occupies the opposite position; don’t sleep well when it is supposedly on guard.

In business succession, be fair, not equal

in
Moore, Byron.jpg

Question: I have three wonderful adult children. Only one of them has come into the family business. The other two have lives of their own. I am having a hard time figuring out how to be fair to my children in my estate plans. Most of what I have is tied up in the business, but leaving the business in equal thirds to my three children won’t really work either. Any ideas?
Answer: Don’t confuse equality with fairness.
