Current Edition
Take a peek inside our latest issue.

Bright sunlight graced the log home of Kim and Vickie Miller of Puryear, making a peaceful vignette after last year’s heavy snow.


It's winter, plain and simple.

By the time you read this, it will be 2016. Baby New Year will be waddling through January at breakneck speed. The children will be back in school and doing their snow dance. And you may be half way through that 10,000-piece jigsaw puzzle that Aunt Suzy gave you for Christmas. Yep, it’s winter, plain and simple.

And that’s what I like about this time of year. No frilly leaves on the trees. No bountiful garden to pick or colorful fl owers to tend. There’s just cold weather, hot soup and PARIS! magazine, plain and simple.

If you’re ready for a tempting hot beverage, Angie Holmes has gathered delicious tea and cocoa recipes. Don’t like hot drinks? There’s even a step-bystep for an ice-cold frappe. Burrrr….

Paris and Henry County’s students are well represented in this issue with Angie Dotson’s inspiring “Save a Heart Day” at Grove and Leah Watkins’ story of PSSD students who, even as kindergarteners, are learning a foreign language. Très bon!

There’s history galore with Larry Ray’s great take on the life of Governor James Porter and Shannon McFarlin’s inspiring piece on Howard University President and Paris native Mordecai Johnson. Susan Jones shares her conversation with Shannon McFarlin, author of the greatly anticipated local history book, As If They Were Ours - The Story of Camp Tyson, America’s Only Barrage Balloon Training Facility.

Ready for a chuckle? Don’t miss the Great Landscape Debate by garden guru John Watkins. Who knew that plants were so much like presidential candidates?

Finally, hometown heroes Mark Johnson, Don Davenport and Dr. Kyle Stephens show up in three, must-read articles that will make you proud to call Henry County home.

What? You haven’t gotten your Helping Hand Calendar? It’s in this issue. Dining Guide? It’s here. Calendar of Events? You bet!

Happy Winter….plain and simple,
