It is better to try to stop this awful virus by any and all means possible. I have already begun wearing my homemade mask in public and yesterday I’d say about 50% of shoppers were already wearing masks.
President Donald Trump has recommended the voluntary use of a non-medical grade facial covering, which the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has said may cut the spread of Covid-19 by as much as 50%. Paris Mayor Steve Clifford also issued a supplemental public health emergency order…
We are all experiencing this time,
With President Donald Trump extending federal guidelines for social distancing and with local elected leaders joining Gov. Greg Abbott in urging people to stay at home, many Texans are finding themselves with a lot of time on their hands. How are you spending your time during the coronavirus…
Rather than offering some intelligent information or inspirational commentary for the community, O’Connor took his usual tact and plunged headlong into an attack on President Donald Trump and the Republican leadership.
These are my thoughts regarding your poll on impact of coronavirus and recent commentary in The Paris News.
Nursing was stressful enough before the coronavirus came along. Now, as I struggle daily to grasp the changes and challenges that have taken place both at work and at home.
Gov. Greg Abbott took multiple measures Sunday designed to expand hospital staffing and capacity in Texas, but declined to issue a statewide shelter-in-place order. At the time, the state was reporting 566 confirmed cases and seven deaths. To free up hospital beds in anticipation for an infl…
As the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, continues to spread, schools have shut down, businesses are reorienting services and times, and people are urged to practice social distancing. With U.S. officials warning that the number of cases here is expected to spike, what worries you most about impa…
Can anyone in the county leadership tell people where the $10 road and bridge fee that is extra on our tag fee really goes, and why there is now a $4.75 processing and handling fee on tags?
Announcing the names of the individuals involved (in officer-involved shootings) would put a stigma on them for doing their jobs.
With more than 89,000 infections and over 3,000 deaths globally, COVID-19 has prompted government warnings and travel restrictions. Washington state health officials announced a second death, and researchers said the virus may have been circulating for weeks undetected. A woman in San Antoni…

First thing in the morning, I sip from the cup of success.
Safely exiting the Paris Towne Center during busy traffic times is a challenge for us all. I seem to wind up there every time I come to Paris because of the great selection of excellent stores.
Climate change came at least once before, and I suspect without aid from mankind. In other words, it happened without SUVs, jet planes or any of those type things.
Sometimes letters to the editor contain bad information. There was one that said that Ukraine is a NATO ally. Ukraine is not in NATO.
