The following opinion was written by Beckie White, of Lufkin:

How can the City of Jasper spend 16,0000 Million Dollars, for Broadband, when they won't take care of their own. Paid Fire department, Pay Police Officers a higher rate of pay, and give the retired a COST of living raise they have not had for over five years. upgrade the streets, sewer and all other issues that Jasper needs. Jasper used to be a nice town to live in . but looks like Jasper is going down hill fast.
