ABOUT THIS MONTH'S COVER:
Future farmer Calvin Smith checks out the
corn rows on a Henry County farm. He is
the son of Hunter Smith and Kellie Smith.
This delightful scene was captured by
photographer Mary Kate Paschall.
Now that summer is finally here, I
don’t want to miss a thing!
Make the most of the next three
months, starting with “Around Our
Town,” which touts a boatload of
exciting activities that are perfect for
locals, tourists or company visiting
from out of town. “Paris Cuisine” is
my summer offering – easy, delicious,
kid-approved recipes for a family picnic.
And what’s a picnic without a little
music? Karen Geary visits with Mike
Holden who encourages the musicians
among us to dust off those horns and
join the community band.
If you’d rather be outside, Garden
Guru John Watkins highlights
wildflowers in “Gardens Gone Wild.”
Lori and Gary (Peanut) Paschall are
featured in our “Spotlight” with kayaking
ideas that will make you want
to grab a paddle and go! “A Couple of
Travelers” invite you to celebrate the
85th Anniversary of TVA with a milelong
walk across Kentucky Dam which
offers a stunning view of the lake and
an enlightening visitor center.
Speaking of enlightening, Shannon
McFarlin has several fascinating
features. First, hometown Jeopardy
champion, Laura McLean, explains her
journey to the big time. Next, the creators
of that yummy, yummy Charlie
Pop ® Gourmet Popcorn tell their tale.
Finally, Ernie and Clint Diggs show us
21st Century farming methods with
their hardworking drones. If that’s
not enough techno for you, check out
Becky Cate’s article on Skype in the
Paris Special School District’s classrooms
- prepare to be amazed.

courthouse lawn. Bill Neese shares
