Take a peek inside our latest issue.
ABOUT THIS MONTH'S COVER:
Spring is here and bird enthusiast
Jean Owens depicts the season with
this endearing photo of a newly
Owens, an avid nature photographer,
is the treasurer of the Paris
Photography Club. She has won
several awards for her photography
in local, regional, and national
we’re so ready
One of the perks of being the editor
of PARIS! is getting to anticipate
the upcoming season’s issue. So when
it’s winter outside, it’s spring inside
my head, on my computer and in my
magazine proofs, lifting my mood on
cold winter days.
In this issue I’ve found that nothing
chirps “Spring” like Jean Owens’
cover photo of a baby chick. Add to
that Shannon McFarlin’s piece on local
gardener Sonny Baker. Between
his colorful spring fl owers and delicious
veggies, I could almost smell the
freshly tilled earth.
Spring is synonymous with new
clothes, and the article on the Downtown
Paris Association’s Fashion Show
Fundraiser got me in the mood to
shop the boutiques around the square
for that new Fish Fry outfi t.
The piece on our county’s youth
learning to boat through the Spirit of
America program warmed my heart
toward Kentucky Lake.
Of course, this issue isn’t all about
spring. There is a wonderful feature on
a 1963 Paris phone book that reveals a
fascinating glimpse into everyday life
during the middle of the last century.
And speaking of the past, Larry Ray illustrates
some interesting ties between
Henry Countians and the historic
Battle of Shiloh.
If all of that reading makes you
hungry, try Annie Mayoza Holmes’ one
pan wonders. Annie is taking over the
Paris Cuisine column from the Queen
of the Kitchen Cindy Snyder. We’ll miss
you, Cindy, but we hear Annie is awesome.
Thanks for sending her our way!
As always we have lots more in this
issue, from an informative, farewell
interview with outgoing City Manager
Carl Holder to some big award news
from Paris Winery to the hilarious gardening
journal of John Watkins.
Finally, there’s our complete calendar
of events including Fish Fry fun!
Happy hushpuppies everyone!
