ABOUT THIS MONTH'S COVER:
Spring arrives and so does a pair of wood
ducks to their nesting box in Springville.
Mike Grace, a member of the Paris
Photography Club, chanced upon these
mates during a leisurely drive in the
Kentucky Lake area.
Spring is finally here!
There’s something about living in
this part of the world in the spring. The
winter wheat is as green as any Irish
hillside, and folks are anxious to get
their tomato plants in the ground.
Spring also brings out a host of
writers and topics, both of which are
all on display in this issue. Fish Fry is
top of mind with an article on Staci

There’s plenty of art talk in this
issue, too. Rhonda Stanton, the head of
the Krider Performing Arts Center, and
Arts Council Director Amy Jones cover
everything from performing arts at
KPAC to visual arts at Lee Academy.
Our community is steeped in history,
and this issue rounds up several
interesting tales, from Larry Ray’s look
at a local who was at Appomattox with
General Lee to Shannon McFarlin’s
tales of the old County Home, to Bill
Neese’s hilarious recollection of the
day he learned where NOT to park a
horse in Whitlock.
Finally, this issue introduces a new
series entitled “A Couple of Travelers.”
Written by Susan Jones and John Nichols,
the two are visiting out-of-the-way
places, as well as some large attractions
within a few hours of Paris. Their
goal is to encourage Henry Countians
to discover the nearby gems that are
often are overlooked.
Enjoy this lovely spring and enjoy PARIS!
