Welcome to The Light

Hello World.

I’m Sherri L. Jackson of Alexandria, La., and I finally get to own a newspaper that I have control over.

There’s no publisher, editor or stockholder to tell me what what to do. This time I’m having it my way.

What is my way? It’s my desire to provide information to the community that they  will never find in the local daily news outlets. As you read the daily press, do you often wonder whether or not our people ever do anything positive? Do we get married? Do we get promotions on our jobs? Are our children doing anything positive? My answer is yes to all of these questions. Unfortunately, you will be hardpressed to read about it in the mainstream media. You will read about those things and more in The Light.

 The Light is published twice a month on the first and 15th of each month. You can pick up copies throughout Alexandria, Pineville,  and Marksville. The papers are mostly distributed through churches and are usually snapped up within minutes. Don’t panic. You can also purchase a subscription to have the newspaper delivered directly to your home.

 Keep coming back to this site for news updates that you need to know right now.

Give me a call at 318-487-9254. If you’re in the Alexandria area, stop by and visit at 1429 Third St.

Always remember, “If You’re Not Reading The Light, You’re In The Dark.”
