By executive order, Biden halted the Keystone XL pipeline. The Keystone XL company announced that those jobs will be eliminated in the next few weeks as the company safely shuts down the construction.
I will certainly miss tuning in to the Paper Radio each week — please return early and often.
I just want to give a shoutout to the Paris Parks and Recreation Department for keeping the walking track at Dragon Park in such great shape.
People and corporations may have the right to free speech, and private censorship within their own affairs, even if one or both is equally foolish, but no one is guaranteed an audience.
I believe that when you go to mass mail-in ballots, you will have massive fraud.
Kudos to the great employees associated with the local EMS groups.

Cheers, hoorays and thank-you’s to the City of Paris sanitation workers. The faithful and thorough men who see to our neighborhood trash pickup are truly unsung heroes.

I would like to know if Democrats share ideas with communists, socialists and fascists. Democrats now are not the Democrats of old.
Come on, Lamar County, I think we are better than this. Let’s get our act together and do the right things to defeat this Covid-19 pandemic.
I want to commend the staff at The Paris News for providing our community with information on our community.
The virus is not political, it is not about your rights. It does not care who you are. You could have a mild case, or you could die.
