The Texas Department of Transportation Paris District would like to congratulate Red River County Maintenance employee, Kody Gray, for being named the runner-up in the annual TxDOT ‘Roadeo’.

Kody won the Clarksville Maintenance section and Paris District Championship Roadeo titles before heading to Austin for the State Truck Roadeo. At the State Truck Roadeo he finished second in the state competition with a score of 290 points out of the possible 360 points, only 20 points below the first place ranking.

“This is the highest finish that any driver from the Paris District has ever attained,” TxDOT spokeswoman Becky Ozuna said.

The purpose of the “Truck Roadeo” is to:

  • Establish safe vehicle operation, thus reducing accidents.
  • Recognize the skills of the operators participating and the pride exhibited in the safe operation of TxDOT equipment.
  • Create a keen interest in driving ability, which contributes to the safety program of any fleet operation.

The program consists of the following:

  • An equipment inspection exercise that will test each driver’s skill in finding several safety defects which have been “planted” on a dump truck (points are awarded for successful completion of this exercise).
  • An obstacle course that has been designed to simulate equipment maneuvers encountered on a normal workday (points are awarded for each test of skill; penalties are assessed for various driving deficiencies).
  • The driver with the maximum number of accumulated points will be declared the winner.

Texas Department of Transportation

The Texas Department of Transportation is responsible for maintaining 80,000 miles of road and for supporting aviation, rail, and public transportation across the state. TxDOT and its 11,000 employees are committed to working with others to provide safe and reliable transportation solutions for Texas by maintaining a safe system, addressing congestion, connecting Texas communities, and being a Best in Class state agency.

For the third year in a row, LMAO Comedy Club in Downtown Paris will ring in the New Year with their annual New Year’s Eve comedy show. This year there are two headliners that are LMAO favorites, Jason Russell and local Daryl Felsberg.

Jason Russell is a national touring headliner that opened for Patty Labelle and Martin Lawrence. Jason later was featured as a subject for a PBS Documentary called “Crossing The Line”, then later on FOX’s “Prison Break”.

Daryl Felsberg started doing stand up in 2000 and has worked with George Carlin, Tom Arnold, Jimmy Walker and countless others in nearly every state. Felsberg can be heard on XM Comedy and has been seen on NBC’s Last Comic Standing. When not on the road Daryl has called Paris home since 2009.

“Jason and I have worked all over the country together, and when I said I wanted to do a New Year’s Eve Show at home, there was no question, he was the guy.” Felsberg said. “We really work well together and yet really can push each other’s buttons for the sake of comedy.”

“Something we are going to debut, as an experiment, is he and I on the stage at the same time.”

Tickets are $40 and include food, champagne toast, a midnight countdown, party favors, and of
course, the show.

Doors open at 9 p.m., showtime is at 10 p.m. Tickets can be bought online at www.lmaotexas.com or by calling 903-785-LAFF.
