Dodgers’ Lasorda visits Palmetto girl hit by baseball By Ana Ivey

ana@newnan.com

God works in strange ways, according to Tommy Lasorda, the legendary baseball manager of the Los Angeles Dodgers. “If she hadn’t gotten hit in the eye, I wouldn’t be here,” said Lasorda last week from Summer Johnson’s home in Palmetto. Summer, a 12-year-old softball player, was in California on Aug. 18 to watch her brother, Kel, compete for a spot on the 18U Team USA baseball team. While sitting in the stands along the third baseline with her mother at Long Beach State University, a foul ball slammed into her left eye. The pitch was clocked at 95 mph. Lasorda, who was sitting about 10 to 15 feet away, was the first to respond. “To see a girl get hit with a ball like that…,” said Lasorda, shaking his head, as he visited with Summer at her home recently. “I believe in God, but sometimes I wonder, why would something like this happen to her? Those are things that we don’t know why, so I thought maybe I could help her.” Lasorda traveled to Atlanta on a private jet courtesy of the Dodgers to spend time with the youngster, encouraging her to pursue her dreams of playing college softball someday. Summer’s ophthalmologist believes she sustained optic nerve damage, which is irreparable. She sees a black spot from the center of her eye and double vision from her periphery.

Hearty meals for chilly evenings Family Features

Brisk autumn evenings call for warm, homemade meals that bring the family together around the dinner table. If your taste buds call for a fall classic, cuddle up with a pip­ ing hot bowl of chili. The sweetness of brown sugar comple­ments the blend of fresh garlic and Italian sausage in this recipe for Chiliville Chili. Warm up the family with their favorite Italian dishes that feature bold and savory flavors. You can’t go wrong with a traditional family favorite like spaghetti and meatballs. Grab the garlic bread and, please, don’t forget the Parmesan. You’ll need them for this delicious recipe of Italian Meatballs.

Girl Scouts from Troop 10322 build a cairn on the Flat Rock Trail.

Chiliville Chili Makes: 10 to 12 servings

Italian Meatballs Makes: 6 servings 1 egg, lightly beaten 1/3 cup dry bread crumbs 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese 1/4 cup milk 1/4 cup onion, finely chopped 1 package (16 ounces) mild ground Italian Sausage or 1 package (19 ounces) Italian Sausage Links

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. In a large bowl, com­bine the egg, bread crumbs, cheese, milk and onion. If using sausage links, remove from casings. 2. Add sausage to bread crumb mixture and mix well. 3. Shape into 20 meat­balls; arrange on shallow baking pan. Bake for 20 minutes or until meatballs are cooked through (160°F). 4. Serve with favorite sauce and spaghetti.

1 package (16 ounces) Ground Italian Sausage (Mild, Sweet or Hot) 1 pound ground beef 1 medium onion, chopped 3 celery ribs, chopped 3 garlic cloves, minced 3 cans (14.5 ounces each) diced tomatoes with green peppers and onions 2 cans (16 ounces each) kidney beans, rinsed and drained 1 can (14.5 ounces) beef broth 1 can (6 ounces) tomato paste 2 tablespoons brown sugar 2 tablespoons chili powder 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce 2 teaspoons ground cumin 1/2 crushed red pepper flakes Cheddar cheese, shredded (optional)

1. Cook sausage and ground beef in large saucepan over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. 2. Add onion, celery and garlic. 3. Cook and stir for 5 minutes or until tender. 4. Stir in toma­toes, beans, broth, tomato paste, brown sugar, chili powder, Worcestershire sauce, cumin and red pepper flakes. 5. Bring to a boil. 6. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 20 minutes. 7. Sprinkle with cheese if you like and serve immediately.

Chattahoochee Bend Expands

Flat Rock Trail opens at state park By Sarah Fay Campbell sarah@newnan.com

Visitors to Chattahoochee Bend State Park can now visit the park's iconic "Flat Rock" granite areas, following the completion of the Flat Rock Trail. Volunteers completed the one-mile loop trail in just a few hours during a volunteer event held as part of Your State Parks Day. The trail, which traverses the flat rock area and several boulder fields, and crosses the park's highest elevation, is the first trail to be accessed from the "trail head one" parking lot. In addition to being the first new trail built in a year- anda-half, it also connects with the first trail built in the park — a 100-foot ceremonial trail created for the ground-breaking ceremony in 2009. And it was built almost exactly four years after the ground-breaking ceremony. "It was satisfying to see the spot we started at four years ago finally become a part of the hiking trails," said Dean Jackson of the Friends of Chattahoochee Bend State Park. "We had some of the same volunteers and Friends board members who were

t here a nd active in 2009 working on the new sections of trail we built, and they have accomplished so much in the four years between," Jackson said. "It was a great feeling and there's a lot more to come." Girl Scout troop 10322, with about 20 scouts and leaders from Madras Middle School and Northgate High School, joined veteran park volunteers to clear, grade and blaze the one-mile trail. “We had a great volunteer turnout, with veteran trailblazers leading the Girl Scouts. We managed to get the one-mile trail completed in just a few hours,” said chapter President Steve St. Laurent. "That's something to be proud of. We were all very dirty, maybe a little tired, but I bet most of us would go back out there and work some more.” Over the next few months, Friends volunteers will build the 1.4-mile Boulder Valley Trail, which will connect to the Flat Rock Trail in three places to create a “choose your own adventure” trail system. East-west loop trails will also be built from Trail Head One to the park’s visitor center, which will connect the new trails to the existing nine

miles of trails that Friends volunteers have built over the past four years. “The flat rock area is a very pretty place to hike and will be a great amenity for visitors,” said Park Manager Tim Banks. “It’s actually significant from an ecological point of view, too. The upper end is an example of Southern Flatrock, which is a level 2 imperiled ecosystem, and the lower end of the loop contains examples of Montane longleaf pine, which is globally imperiled level 1 ecosystem. It is a great asset for educating visitors about these natural systems.” Over the past year, Friends volu nte er s h ave worke d with park management and other groups to maintain and improve current trails, build foot bridges and improve blazing on the trails, provide shade trees and other improvements for campsites, lead river clean-ups, purchase rentable canoe/kayaks for use on the river, remove silt fencing lead from the park’s construction, provide plantings and beautification projects, and lead community programs and activities at the new park.

The handwritten note The other day I got a note from my dad. It was, sha ll we say, old school. Not an email or text message, but rather a handwritten note. Many of the younger generation would not understand that format — or the point. Doesn’t that take more time and thought? Exactly. The note came after I sent him a copy of our birthday edition, which also featured a couple of stories about me. That in itself was a little embarrassing as I much prefer to be the

JOHN WINTERS

interviewer rather than the interviewee. His letter was one of those “proud of you, son” kinds. The kind you save and tuck away somewhere, to be pulled out and reread when life seems

The new promised land Once upon a time, scenes like this were played out daily across America: It’s supper time in West Virginia coal country. A mother, father and son sit at the family table and give thanks for all their blessings. It doesn’t take long. The meal consists of a large portion of beans, a small scrap of bread and, for the lucky diner, a piece of pork fat slipped into the beans for seasoning. After supper, the mother walks outside to collect a dishtowel from the clothesline. She shakes it out to dislodge the black dust that settled over the cloth like a shroud during a day in the hazy sun.

After the chores are done the three gather in a cramped “living” room. The father faces his son and — once again—speaks of a brighter future. “We ain’t got much here,” he says. “We got each other and tonight we had some food and that’s good. But gettin’ by ain’t no way to live. Me and my daddy and his daddy before him

impossible. I’m 51 years old, and that note from my dad impacted me as much as a pat on the back and “way to go” when I was 7 and I scored a goal. Some things never change. We all want our father’s praise, regardless of our age. It reminded me of the yellow card. T he yellow ca rd is quite f limsy, a mere 4X6 postcard. And it is one of the most powerful pieces of paper I know of. And occasionally, one arrives at our mailbox. It has the power to stop the SONS of Thunder dead in their tracks. And that, well, says a lot if you know the SONS.

The scene goes like this: I walk in the door with the mail. On top, there is a yellow card. And three pairs of eyes light up, stare at the card and then stare at me. And I call out a name. And there is a big war whoop from the SON whose name is called. And there's a drop of the head from the others. The recipient of said card will gloat for hours. Those rejected will mope. The card is from Championship Martial Arts, the karate school the SONS attend. And no, I don't mind giving a plug. And that's because the postcard is from an instructor who has taken the time to handwrite a

sentence or two. In a nutshell, it's an "atta-boy," a "way to go." And it's not generic, but specifically addresses something — improvement on a kick, learning a new block, something. The SONS keep every one of those cards. They are pinned on a corkboard in their rooms. I'm proud to say we have a lot of cards. A simple postcard, handwritten. Mentally, it is as powerful as learning to break a cinder block. From a customer service standpoint, it is pure brilliance. A few si mple words. A n acknowledgement by, let's face it, a business, of a job well done to a customer. It cost pennies. It

cost a little time. It took a little thought. But it means the world to the SONS. And it impresses the heck out of yours truly footing the bill. The power is in words — not round kicks or blows or breaking pieces of wood. Just words. The power of the yellow card. Just words? Yeah, trying telling that to the SONS — or me. Do you remember the last time you got a yellow card? More i mpor ta nt ly, do you remember the last time you wrote one — friends, family, customers, associates? What are you waiting for?

worked these coal mines ‘cause we didn’t know nothin’ else. But son, I swear I’ll be the last in my family to go down in that hole. Your mama and I won’t rest till you get educated and get out of here and on to somethin’ better.” And they did. Children once destined to dig coal or chop cotton for a living went to college and became doctors, nurses, engineers, professors and merchants. But these days, “a better life” has a whole new meaning. Nowadays, the after dinner family conversation might go like this: “Justin and Mandy, you know your mother and I have worked hard to make sure you two have it better than we did growing

up. And we’ve done well. Our joint medical practice is booming and the new beach house is the bomb, but we think our children deserve better. “We think you deserve to work in a place where you’ll enjoy bulletproof job security, unbelievable benefits and the highest average pay per worker in the country. To make that happen, we won’t rest until you have both been hired by the United States Government.” Welcome to the new normal. Once upon a time, young people seeking affluence and excitement f locked to New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Boston, Dallas, Seattle or Atlanta, places that offered the best chance of mov-

ing on up and hitting it big. Not any more. The U.S. Census Bureau just released its list of America’s wealthiest counties. Guess what? America’s four wealthiest counties surround Washington, D.C. T he top four, by media n family income are: Arlington County, Va. ($137,216); Loudoun County, Va. ($127,192); Howard County, Md. ($125,162) and Fairfax County, Va. ($124,831). And who lives in these outposts of affluence? The area’s biggest employer — by far — is government. The people who used to be called “public servants” are now masters of the financial universe. Best of all, their affluence is provided by taxpayers

whose median family income is $52,762, less than half of the median federal family income. What a country. Federal government employees make more than the citizens who pay their wages. A lot more. Somewhere, Karl Marx is beaming. By the way, while Metro D.C. is home to four of the nation’s wealthiest counties, the nation’s 380 other metro areas COMBINED have just three counties on the top 10 “most affluent” list. Once upon a time America was renowned for its research, technology and manufacturing. Now we produce the world’s wealthiest bureaucrats. On the bright side, at least “We’re Number One” in something.

“We don’t know what it’s like to lose an eye or have trouble with an eye,” said Lasorda, “but the only thing I can tell you is you can do it; you can play.” Over several intimate hours and a home-cooked dinner of roast, mashed potatoes, squash casserole, and strawberry birthday cake — Lasorda turned 86 the day before his visit — the Hall of Famer shared dozens of baseball jokes and stories with the Johnson family. His wit was sharp like a razor, his voice gravelly and guttural, and his inspirational tales like treasures taken straight out of the “good book.” One story in particular hit home with Summer, that of another youngster Lasorda encouraged 13 years ago. Tanner Vavra, the son of a former Dodgers minor league instructor, lost the sight in his right eye after two freak accidents. At the age of 10, Vavra believed his dream of playing pro ball was over. Then, Uncle Tommy phoned Vavra. “He was feeling depressed, dejected, but I told him he could do anything he wanted to do with one eye,” said Lasorda. “With one eye, you can still hit the ball.” Vavra proved Lasorda right. As a junior at Valparaiso University in Indiana, Vavra batted .332 with 20 RBIs in 59 games. His numbers were equa lly impressive as a senior, when he batted .330 with 20 RBIs and 10 doubles in 60 games. And then in June, Vavra got the news he’d been hoping for since his Little League days. He was drafted by the Minnesota Twins in the 30th round. “I f you d rea m it, i f you believe it, you can make it happen. I believed I was the greatest left-handed pitcher in the world,” said Lasorda, chuckli ng. “But I wasn’t. But, I believed it.” Summer, who hung on every one of Lasorda’s words and jotted notes on her iPhone, said she had considered giving up softball. “I threw with my cousin once and with my mom once and I

felt like I was starting the sport again,” said Summer, a catcher who has been playing since she was 6. “I was seeing two balls and I couldn’t tell which one to catch. I thought about playing volleyball instead just because a softball is four times smaller than a volleyball, but now I want to stick with softball. Because of Mr. Lasorda, I believe I can make it with one eye.” Lasorda hopes to fly back to Atlanta in the spring to watch Summer play in her first softball game of the season. In the meantime, after hugging and kissing her goodbye, and tell-

ing her that he wished he could just take her home with him — “my wife and I have always wanted a little girl,” he said — he handed her his business card and told her to call him anytime. “See there are three types of people, Summer, just like I tell my ball players,” he said. “Number one is the one who makes it happen. Number two is the one who watches it happen. And number three is the one who wonders what has happened. You gotta make it happen . W hatever your dreams are, whatever you want to do, you can accomplish it.”

Where there’s a Will... there’s a way Royals reliever, former Northgate High ace makes smooth transition to bullpen during second year in majors By CHRIS GOLTERMANN cgoltermann@newnan.com

By now, Wi l l Sm it h cou ld probably recite the pref light safety instruction speech by heart, seat-belt demonstration included. But a final trip home to Newnan following the 2013 baseball season may have been even that more satisfying than just racking up frequent flyer miles between the Triple-A Omaha Storm Chasers and the Kansas City Royals. Making his own transition from a starter to the bullpen this year on the mound, the 6-foot-5 left-hander who once frustrated opposing batters at Northgate High, found himself caught between a surging Storm Chasers team on their way to both Pacific League and a Triple-A national championship and the Royals’ resurgence while in the hunt for an American League Wild Card berth. Omaha’s staff included hitting coach and former Atlanta Brave Tommy Gregg, who is a Newnan resident. Despite not quite getting a chance to taste champagne with the Storm Chasers, Smith wouldn’t have it any other way. “I kept up with my teammates in Omaha and you’re happy for them, but I can’t really complain about it,” Smith said. “Especially when you’re playing in the major leagues is your goal all along.” It made for both an exciting and exhausting second year in the major leagues that included seven callups between April and late August, the latter through the end of the regular season in Kansas City, where

the Royals finished 5 ½ games behind Tampa Bay with 86 victories, the most by the franchise since 1989. “Going up and down seven times with the travel can be tough,” Smith said, who at one point took four f lights starting in Omaha in one day to catch up with the Royals while they were in Boston, only to get stuck in the hotel elevator around 2 a.m. on the way up to his room. “I was so tired, I could have slept there.” In his first year as a reliever, though, Smith became part of one of the best bullpens in the American League and a trusted left-hander one season after an up-and-down rookie campaign as a starter. Smith was an important part of both teams’ efforts, finding his groove in the major leagues with a solid 2-1 record and 3.24 ERA in 19 appearances with Kansas City. It included a spot-start during a doubleheader against Cleveland on April 28 where he gave up four earned runs in a four-inning appearance before immediately returning to Omaha. But by the time he returned to the Royals on June 25 for a game against his hometown Atlanta Braves, however, Smith was settling into his new surroundings after making a transition to the bullpen with the Storm Chasers. It came on a directive from Kansas City after the Royals added three starting pitchers to the rotation in the offseason and were in need of adding another lefthander to the bullpen. “The hardest part was getting used to the routine,” Smith

said. “I used to throw 30 minutes to get warm. Now you have just eight pitches to get ready.” Once accustomed to waiting five days in between starts as he did during 16 appearances as a rookie in 2012 while finishing with a 6-9 record and a 5.32 ERA, the 23-year-old slowly adjusted to new workouts and conditioning drills. Sm it h accepted a s much advice as he could, crediting bullpen coach Doug Henry, who worked as Omaha’s pitching coach prior to joining Kansas City, as well as veterans Bruce Chen and Luke Hocheva r, bot h of whom be g a n careers as starters. The 36-year-old Chen, who debuted with the Braves as a rookie in 1998 among the first of 10 major-league uniforms he’s worn, told Smith specifically to stay patient in his early years and not let mista kes become a distraction. “Don’t try to be a hero,” he said of the advice. “He said you’re still young. You have a lot to look forward to.” Despite just si x appea rances with the Royals between April and early July, Smith hit a groove down the stretch, posting a 1.23 ERA in August and making eight appearances in September sta r ti ng w it h a 4-plus inning appearance in a comeback effort over Seattle that led to his second win of the year. His fastball was clocked in at 95 mph in the final month, with manager Ned Yost remarking to Jeffrey Flanagan of FoxSports.com, “He's just been phenomenal out there. A big boost for us."

Newnan, Georgia

Piedmont Newnan Hospital officially opens Tuesday at its new campus at 745 Poplar Road. But before that can happen the aging facility on Hospital Road must be officially closed. It’s not a process that happens with the flip of a switch or wave of a magic wand. Moving from the old facility to the new is actually a balancing act that requires keeping both facilities open for more than a week as people, equipment and procedures underPhoto by Jeffrey Leo go a transition that allows no for error.
