Well Let me take a guess at this. The article on the Charleston website was posted at 9:06 pm. That means they have a night staff, I don't think the Beacon has a night staff,correct? No paper or news outlet can post anything factuall until reports are all in. The Beacon hits the streets at 3:00pm or so and I'll bet the reports were not done by then.Plus your comparing a very small newspaper to a 24 hour around the clock paper.I for one am thankful Paris even has a newspaper.What other towns of 9,000 have a six day a week paper? It won't be long before that will change too in todays economy. Just a thought.

I was told a reporter Gary Henry was fired. I hope this is not true. Gary was an excellent reporter and he was a great asset to the Paris Beacon. If its true I'm canceling my subscription when it comes due

Actually I just found the story on the Beacon website and it says it was published at 5:20 pm Wednesday.
