Perhaps, workers from other areas will be showing up to help your local power company the same way others showed up here in my town back when we had a bad ice storm in 2001. A crew from MS showed up in my neighborhood about a week after the storm hit and restored power to my house....even though we had to get a locally licensed electrician to verify the hook up was done properly. Best of luck to all of you during this time from a former Paris resident who has been in Oklahoma for some 40 plus years.  (Dec 8, 2013 | post #3)

Do you recall your elementary teachers?

This has been an interesting thread. I have not gotten back to it as often as I'd like though. There is a J.G. Wooten kids group on Facebook that any of you ex Wolves would be welcomed to join if you'd like to do so.  (Dec 8, 2013 | post #266)

Awesome Photography

I feel for all of you. I have relatives in the Paris area that I have talked to today. The pictures remind me of the ice storm we had here North of OKC in 2001. We were lucky at my house and only spent one week without electricity, but others spent a month or so without it. Thanks for posting the link for us to check and our hopes are that things will improve for all of you soon.  (Dec 8, 2013 | post #2)

Paris Glass & Mirror to open soon!

I understand that Ralph Hoffman does a great job with auto glass. He did a great job for me a couple of years ago.  (Feb 27, 2013 | post #5)

Conway Twitty

Joe E. Lewis

So many great memories of a life well lived. Conway was the first country artist I ever saw in person at Detroit,Texas in 1968. Of course I loved Big Joe's playing and singing. I turned out to be a tenor and have often tried to sing Big Joe's part on Conway's songs....but never to the level that Joe did them. I know his is still missed in the same way my dad who passed away in 1994 is missed. God Bless all of Joe's family and friends.  (Nov 24, 2012 | post #32)

Miss Alma's Original Ozark Peppers

Laurie, I've never tasted any chicken that was as good as the original Ozark chicken I got in Paris during the 1960's. My father hung the curtains in your parents' house there in Paris. I will eat KFC original chicken now, but it's not close to your mom's!  (Aug 18, 2012 | post #172)

Sorry to have taken so long to reply. I don't get to check Topix as often as I'd like. I am part of a jail ministry in Stillwater,OK and also some of the prisons in Oklahoma. God Bless.  (Dec 20, 2011 | post #36)

windshield replacement

Ralph Hoffman put a new windshield in for me last Spring and did a fantastic job at a very reasonable price. I would tell anyone around Paris to call him for a good job.  (Dec 20, 2011 | post #5)

We need a church revival,,, who agrees,,,,

Some of you who know me will remember that my dad pastored in Paris for some 16 years. He always preached that it's not our job to clean up the sinners; it's our job to be the best dedicated Christians that we can be for our Savior. He always said that there was nothing wrong with America that did not begin in the pulpits and pews of our churches. Revival is NOT sinners being saved; that is the result of Christians getting right with God and obeying HIS commandments. "Give me that Old Time Religion, It's Good Enough For Me." Three inmates were saved today in the jail where I minister. No gimmicks or new "methods; " just a simple message from God's Word. HE touched their hearts and brought salvation to them.  (Nov 2, 2011 | post #14)

World Series 2011 - Paris, TX

I'm pulling for the Rangers. I wish they would have kept their association with the OKC Redhawks; but I understand Nolan Ryan's team was in Round Rock. At any rate, I really get a kick out of watching Ron Washington. That guy has some enthusiasm!  (Oct 25, 2011 | post #29)

What do you hate about Oklahoma City

I have lived in Oklahoma for over 40 years; having grown up in Paris during the 50's and 60's. I live in a small town and it's either "The City" (Oklahomans understand that term) or Tulsa for major shopping. I've never been fond of Tulsa and prefer OKC most of the time. Like any urban city, there are parts of OKC that are not the safest places to frequent. The places I go to shop and eat are easily accessible. Except for losing my favorite catfish place; I can find all of my favorite foods there. I do try to avoid rush hour traffic when I travel to OKC. I'd still rather fight OKC traffic than Fort Worth or Dallas.  (Oct 25, 2011 | post #12)

Afgan War

By the way, what great,marvelous and positive changes have we made in Iraq? And to boot, they now give CHINA rights to their oil that WE saved? We should have taken their oil for $10 a barrel until their debt to us was paid!  (Aug 30, 2011 | post #6)

Afgan War

I support our troops 100% and spent 8 years in the military myself, so I'm not an "anti-war nut" or anything like that. Lately, I am questioning what we have accomplished in Afganistan and what it is we hope to accomplish there. Exactly what is it that far too many of our fine troops are giving their lives for? My nephew is a chaplain with the OKARNG and it is his solemn duty to be part of the team that personally notifies next of kin when an OKARNG soldier goes down. This past week was particularly difficult for him. One of the soldiers from Oklahoma left a wife and two teenage children. The teenagers were understandably devestated upon hearing the news. Even with his chaplain's training in such matters, this reaction tore at my nephew's heart as well as mine upon hearing him relate it. I am becoming more and more convinced that we have become involved in another situation that Washington cannot or willnot allow our military to conduct in an acceptable manner and outcome. I know the line, this is a "different " kind of "war" etc, etc; but let's either take them OUT or get our troops OUT. Our National Guardsmen in particular need to be HERE taking care of OUR soil. I'm not naive enough to believe that we have done that much to deter any more attacks here. The enemy is patient and will strike at will. Not trying to start any arguments, just doing some soul-searching.  (Aug 6, 2011 | post #1)

a/c cooling the house

I worked for an AC man while going to college. When the unit is doing all it can do, it will help sometimes to hose down the evaporator coils outside. It doesn't have to cool the air as much if the air passes through the wet coils. If the coils are dirty, the water will help to clean them as well. I bought a Bryant multi-stage AC /Heat system last year. It has performed great and hasn't cost me an arm and leg in utility bills either. Most of the summer, I've had it no lower than 78 during the day and 80 at night.  (Aug 5, 2011 | post #35)

Taco Casa

Taco Casa has a Taco Light that is made with a fried flour tortilla that is similar to the one Taco Bell had some years ago. I can eat several of them at a sitting. Will try them out when I visit Paris.  (Aug 5, 2011 | post #12)
