Spring 2012 Cover
Take a peek inside our latest issue.

Spring is here and bird enthusiast Jean Owens depicts the season with this endearing photo of a newly hatched chick. 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 competitions.


After a long winter, we’re so ready for Spring!

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!
