ABOUT THIS MONTH'S COVER:
This bumblebee was captured in flight
by local photographer Al Gengler.
Do you ever get an itch to do something
Most folks scratch that itch with a
new pair of shoes, a weekend get-away
or perhaps a new hobby. However,
when Editor Susan Jones announced
that PARIS! for the Holidays 2012 was
to be the last issue of the magazine, I
knew it was time for me to try something
Our story has a lot of happy twists
and turns, and in the end, I am thrilled
and humbled to be the new editor of
PARIS! Yes, it’s hard, ongoing work, but
it’s also wonderfully energizing to be
with people who love and appreciate
this community as much as my family
and I do.
My husband Kyle and I have enjoyed
watching our daughters, Savannah
and Addy Kate, grow up devoted
to the area. From the time they were
little, our family has participated in “all
things Paris” – from Small Fry floats
to 4-H , church activities to Saturday
In our own little way, we’ve even
tried to follow in the footsteps of E.W.
Grove’s family (Grove Chill Tonic), the
Wilcox family (Allegro), the Freeman/
Rockwell families (Sally Lane’s Candy
Farm) and other local entrepreneurs
by opening our own small business,
Coast To Coast Tinting.
With all of this going on, we
thought that Al Gengler’s bee photo
created the perfect spring cover. It
echoes the busy nature of our family
and of our community.
Things are buzzin’ in Paris and
Henry County; just check out the
table of contents and the Calendar of
Events. From the fun Fish Fry article,
“Out of the Mouths of Small Fries” to
a historic piece on our county’s only
female sheriff, to an article on an upcoming
storytelling event, we know
that this issue will make readers glad
that PARIS! is back and rocking.
