Current Edition
Take a peek inside our latest issue.

In the stillness of an early morning, Vickie Miller of Puryear captured the beautiful autumn foliage emerging from a lifting fog. She is the president of the Friends of Tennessee National Wildlife Refuge.


It’s fall, y’all!

It’s funny to be writing about autumn with temps in the 90s, but my theory is, “If the Patriots are playing ball, it’s fall, y’all!”

Even if you didn’t go back to school this August, there’s plenty to learn in this issue of PARIS! For example, who knew that there was a Bell Witch connection to Henry County? Shannon McFarlin explores that historical link in Reminiscence. And for more bizarre spookiness, check out her feature on paranormal investigators.

Enough scary stuff, let’s move on to accolades. Bobby Milam was recently named the Chamber’s Person of the Year. PARIS! puts Milam In the Spotlight with an article from Kathy Ray. Auctioneer Junior Staggs is no longer just an auctioneer; he’s an award-winning auctioneer. Shannon McFarlin tells his fascinating story. And finally, a local business and a national organization hit milestones this year. Read how Trolinger’s and the Future Farmers of America celebrated their 100-year anniversaries.

Lots of Henry Countians don’t realize that The Trail of Tears came right through Paris. Gary Collier relates that story, and his family’s mission with the children of Cherokee, North Carolina. While we’re in the neighborhood of East Tennessee, find out what you can do to help Gatlinburg rebound after the 2016 fires.

Looking for something light? Garden Guru John Watkins goes on a comical rant about what drives him crazy in the garden. Karen Geary relates the story of Henry County native Sue Green’s years as personal assistant to rock legend Joe Cocker. And Bill Neese tells the charming tale of his greatest defender and champion.

Finally, Larry Ray offers little known history on the Parkhill family and their surprising Civil War story. There’s plenty more with Paris Cuisine, Dining Guide and a Calendar of Events.

Enjoy Autumn and enjoy PARIS! magazine,
