  • LA honors the armed forces

    For some people, “call of duty” is a video game. For some churches, it is a pun regarding those who serve the church in one way or another. On Nov. 11, men and women for whom those three words are a way of life were honored.
    Prior to the ceremony events at the VFW, the Elks Lodge served breakfast to not only veterans, but the public, as well. They did this last year and will do so again next year.
    At about 9:30 a.m., approximately 60 people trickled into the VFW. As the patrons took their seats, the pianist began playing a few bars of various patriotic songs. As he did so, the conversation faded to a slight murmur.

  • Pajama pants should be worn at home

    Yes, pajama pants are very comfortable at home, but they should only be worn at home. “Why,” you ask? In every other situation when you are not at home, pajama pants look unprofessional, sloppy and can seriously damage your fashion sense.
    I don’t care how pretty the pattern is or how warm they are. Don’t even try arguing with me about that!
