Hellebores or “Lenten Roses” are a dependable perennial that bloom in late winter and early spring. Rick Conger took this photograph early on the second Sunday of Lent in his and wife Pam’s woodland garden on Greenacres Drive. Conger is the owner of Paris Karate.


Celebrating Spring in PARIS!

In this issue of PARIS! writers are celebrating the warm sunshine, longer days and colorful blooms with an array of articles. Annie Mayoza Holmes offers up yummy recipes for a delicious Spring brunch.

Shannon McFarlin puts her focus on two downtown churches in “Glass Divine,” a celebration of exquisite stained glass windows. She also covers the plans to rebuild Trinity United Methodist Church after a devastating fire. Community and church fundraising efforts have been called, “Nothing short of a miracle.”

Our Spotlight article, “The Prognosticator of Kentucky Lake,” a tall fish tale by freelance writer Karen Geary, will put everyone in the mood to celebrate the World’s Biggest Fish Fry. How she got an interview with a fi sh, I’ll never know.

Spring often means decorating Easter eggs, but out in Whitlock, Bert and Judy Paschall’s talented chickens lay eggs that are already colored. And if you think that’s special, wait until you see those birds’ fancy digs.

With new things sprouting every day outside, Garden Guru John Watkins helps us identify a few of them in his article “What the Heck is That?” And just in case that sprout you found is a gourd, newcomer and artist Kat McGavin shows us how to turn it into a stunning piece of art.

And lest we forget our history, Larry Ray shares the tale of Thomas Kennedy Porter, the lesser known brother of Governor James D. Porter. And Shannon McFarlin tells us of one woman’s 1946 battle with progress in the “Parking Meters Sit-In.”

There are other must-read articles concerning preparations for weather warnings for the months ahead, spring-cleaning your life, bringing tour busses to our town and a sentimental neighborhood reunion.

So however you choose to celebrate the season, enjoy yourself and take along a copy of PARIS!
