Moving Wall - Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Paris Labor Day Weekend



Chamber Prepping for "The Moving Wall" At Eiffel Tower Park
Paris, Tenn.- The Paris Henry County Chamber of Commerce will be bringing “The Moving Wall” a Vietnam Veterans Memorial to Paris for Labor Day Weekend.
The Moving Wall will be on display at Eiffel Tower Park, available 24 hours a day from 1pm Thursday August 31st until 1pm Monday September 4th. There is an opening ceremony at 5pm August 31st and a closing ceremony at Noon September 4th. The exhibit and ceremonies are open to the public.
Local Veterans organizations, National Guard Members, and community members will serve as volunteers.
Chamber Executive Director Mark Johnson said, “this will be a very moving and fulfilling event which will offer our community an experience that many otherwise would never have. We’re excited about the educational value it will bring to our youth.”
The Paris Henry County Chamber of Commerce has helped to organize and fund the event, but couldn’t do it without help from volunteers from our veterans and military organizations in the community and region. Johnson said it takes a large volunteer effort and anyone interested in volunteering can call the Chamber at 642-3431 no later than August 15th.

How's The Fishing



No fishing pole needed!  Hoisting a hefty 45-pound flathead catfish wrestled out of Kentucky Lake last week is Henry Countian Lee Whitehead and his son, Colin.  Hogging catfish has gotten pretty popular on Kentucky Lake and elsewhere across the region.  Folks submerge wooded structures in relatively shallow water, and the fish occupy them when spawning.  Most catch and release.  Read all about fishing in this article by Steve McCadams.

Bassmaster National High School Championship Winners

HC Team Finishes Second In National Tourney
By Shannon McFarlin WENK/WTPR News Director
Buchanan, Tenn.—The Henry County High School Fishing Team of Shawn Burkhart and Gavin Gordon came in second place in the Bassmaster National High School championship with a total weight of 42 pounds and 15 ounces.
It was a spectacular finish for a fishing team that was organized just a few weeks ago, competing in their first national championship.
The Burkhart/Gordon team came in second to winners Tommy Floyd Jr. and James Gibbons of South Florence High School, Alabama.
It was a hard-fought battle that included a day off Friday due to the severe thunderstorms that blew through our area.
During the weigh-in Saturday afternoon at Paris Landing State Park, both Burkhart and Gordon thanked the local community and said they felt good about their finish. Their team came in to today in second place and maintained that through the day.
A large crowd was on hand for the final weigh-in.
The top team won $5,000 in scholarship money and were presented with $20,000 scholarships each to attend Bethel University in McKenzie and be on the Bethel Fishing Team, which is ranked No. 1 in the country.
Bethel Coach Garry Mason presented Floyd and Gibbons with the scholarship during the awards ceremony.
Burkhart and Gordon won $4,000 scholarships from Bass for their second place win. They caught a total 22 pounds 11 ounces Thursday and 20 pounds four ounces today.
Complete results are here:
