Meet your Coweta-Fayette EMC linemen. April has been designated as Lineman Appreciation Month in Georgia. Please take this opportunity to thank your linemen, who help keep your power on 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

I was driving in the car with the Youngest SON of Thunder when “that” jingle came on. “Listen to this,” I said. Said jingle jingles through the radio speakers. “Wait, what?” he replied. A few seconds later the same verse comes around. “That’s disgusting,” he said in a somewhat disgusted tone. Now when a 14-year-old male finds something disgusting, well … The ditty was part of a new ad campaign by Charmin, as in the bathroom tissue brand. The advertising world calls the campaign “bold.” But these types also call someone dressed in a trash bag strutting down a catwalk during Paris Fashion Week “trendsetting.” I digress. The tune that was now stuck in both our minds and the particular phrase in question was, “My hiney’s so Charmin shiny.” At this point we will take a break so everyone can “Google” said phrase and can find the song on YouTube complete with a family of red bears dancing along to it. And we’re back. Anyone remember Mr. Whipple? He was the grocery guy who would chastise women shoppers for squeezing the Charmin, only to be caught doing that very thing seconds later in the commercial. I miss him now. I really don’t care to hear that jingle. I find it somewhat offensive, but I’m not going to freak out, start a petition to free the red bears or storm Charmin’s corporate office. I’m just going to change the channel. Because honestly, I’m getting tired and offended of everyone being so offended. Case in point, actress Gal Gadot, who played Wonder Woman in the movie of the same name, is taking heat for a comment she made in a tribute to the late Stephen Hawking. She tweeted “Rest in peace Dr. Hawking. Now you’re free of any physical constraints …” According to various published reports, “many called the actress insensitive and “ableist,” or discriminative against people who are disabled. I admit, I had to look that word up. And then there’s Sarah Hall, who is raising cane because her six-year-old brought home the book Sleeping Beauty. She claimed it promoted “inappropriate” sexual behaviour. Said behaviour apparently is due to the prince kissing the sleeping princess without asking permission first. Of course, the prince can’t ask the princess if it’s okay to kiss her because she’s sleeping. And the only way she will walk up from this sleep is if the prince kisses her first. And how is she supposed to give permission for the prince to kiss her because she’s asleep? And if he does kiss her is he being insensitive to her feelings and … Nevermind. All this attempt at being non-offensive is making my head hurt and takes up way too much time. I think what we need is to start a “conversation” about why Charmin chose red bears instead of blue, or yellow or … maybe everyone just chill. •••••••••••••••••••••••• On a completely different, and much happier note, the May edition of The Paper marks its one-year anniversary.

We Believe… In fitness at any age. Many older adults feel that they will inevitably lose their strength and vigor, but the truth is you don’t have to be a 20-something to be healthy and fit! Bob Arnot, M.D., an award-winning journalist, author of 12 books on nutrition and health, previously Chief Medical Correspondent for NBC and CBS News, and Chief Foreign Correspondent for MSNBC and NBC, offers this advice for staying fit and healthy at any age: • Find a few minutes at least two to three times a week to maintain general fitness. Try three or four five-minute bursts of activity such as walking or climbing the stairs at the office. • Take two or three more minutes a day for yoga breathing and movements to help your body maintain balance, usable strength, flexibility and muscular restoration.
• Eat right. In addition to lots of fruits and vegetables and a few lean meats, consume foods with magnesium, which helps fight inflammation, and with vitamin B12—especially if you’re over 50— such as fortified cereals. Drink three cups of fat-free or low-fat milk throughout the day or consume the equivalent in yogurt, cheese or other dairy products. Consider an anti-inflammatory diet—cut out sugar, potatoes, tomatoes and eggplant. A retirement community that promotes active aging will offer many resources —such as walking trails, a fitness center and tasty, nutritious dining — to help you stay well and strong. Wesley Woods of Newnan is just that kind of community, offering an energetic lifestyle in an elegant Southern setting. Call 770-683-6859, visit wesleywoodsnewnan.org, or follow us on Facebook and Pinterest.
• Spend another few minutes every day and before any vigorous exercise doing calf stretches and forward bends. • Stay hydrated before, during and after your workout. • To reduce your risk of muscle soreness after exercise, make sure you do proper stretching and cool-down.

SENIOR LIVING ADVICE
Don’t let excuses get in the way when it comes to caregiving Making excuses. I am a master excuse maker. I think it does come naturally to some of us, especially when someone calls us out on something we could do or should do. We can come up with a ton of reasons (i.e., excuses) for why we do what we do or don’t do what we should do. I ran across a quote the other day. Not sure who said it. “When I lost all of my excuses, I found my results.” I have committed that to memory. When I hear an excuse creeping up in my mind, Beth Dow I counter it with “When I lost all of my excuses, I found my results.” Some of the best excuse-driven folks I know, second to the student with homework due, are caregivers. Longterm caregivers often give excuses that allow them to avoid getting help. If you have a friend or a loved one taking care of a family member, listen for these excuses and help them to see how their excuses are being used to justify an unrealistic goal of handling the care of their loved one all by themselves. Excuse No. 1: “I don’t need a break.” Even God took a break on the 7th day! All of us need a break – time to recharge or rest. Caregivers are no different. Some 40 to 70% of longterm caregivers die before the person they are taking care of dies. No one can go forever. Excuse No. 2: “It will cause more stress to get them there.” This excuse is
often given when you ask a caregiver about adult day programs. It just isn’t true. It may make for a hectic morning and if transportation is not offered, that could be an extra hassle. But when weighed against the 6 to 8 hours of “caring free” time they will get in return, the stress a day program could relieve is significant. Excuse No. 3: “I can’t afford help.” There is low cost and even free help out there. It may take some creativity and research, but it is so worth it. If your care recipient is a veteran or the spouse of a veteran, check out the Aid and Attendance Benefit. Medicaid will pay for home care. Many Adult Day programs are based on ability to pay. And never underestimate the willingness of friends or other family members to give a few hours of their time to give you a break. Also, contact your local Area Agency on Aging, for community programs that may offer you support. Excuse No. 4: “No one will look after her/him like I will.” I have 24hour care for my mom. I know without a doubt, that they provide better care for her than I could ever give her. Her care is shared by caregivers, that get a break. When they come in for a shift, they are fresh and ready for the day, not already exhausted. Remember the best care you can give a loved one, may be care that is not provided by you. If you are a caregiver, survive this journey. Ask for help. If you are a friend or family member to a caregiver, don’t let them continue to make excuses. Help them to find their results that appear when excuses are lost.

Five Tips for Eating Healthy Registered Dietitian Nutritionists at Piedmont Newnan Hospital celebrated National Nutrition Month in March by introducing staff members and visitors to some delicious treats each week. The focus this year was “Go further with food.” They are shared excellent information for those who are looking to eat healthier. Here are their five favorite tips:
Eat whole foods – If you want to start eating better, this is the
best place to start. By eating foods that are in their natural form and avoiding processed foods, you will be putting the right things into your body (vitamins, nutrients, fiber) and keeping the bad things out (preservatives, chemicals, added sugar). “One easy way to remember this is, ‘If you can’t read it, don’t eat it,” said Stacy Griswold, registered dietitian nutritionist, commenting that foods with lots of preservatives and chemicals often have long lists of ingredients that are hard to pronounce. Eat whole grains, add lots of fruits and vegetables to your diet and find ways to replace poor choices with better ones.
The Time is Always Right to Think about Healthcare Decisions Dr. Neha Shah, a palliative care physician at Piedmont Newnan Hospital, meets with a lot of patients and their families during difficult times. Perhaps they are facing a challenging diagnosis, extended hospital stays, decisions about treatments or even approaching the end of one’s life. At a time when emotions are running high and illness can color the conversations, families are forced to face these tough questions and find an answer without knowing what quality of life means to their loved ones. Dr. Shah recommends Dr. Neha Shah that everyone have these difficult conversations at a time when everyone is feeling healthy. Although National Healthcare Decisions Day is Monday, April 16, people can sit down and have these discussions with their loved ones at any time. “There is a perception that having conversations around these topics is morbid or dark, but time after time, I meet people who wish they had talked about these things sooner,” said Dr. Shah. “Making decisions about your care, and the roles you would want your family to play in different situations, shows a tremendous amount of forethought and compassion for your loved ones.” An easy way to facilitate these much needed conversations is by completing an advanced care directive. This document is free to fill out, does not need a lawyer or notary, and can be changed at any time to reflect someone’s wishes. You do not need to be sick or aging to have an advance directive. Anyone over the age of 18, who is of sound mind and body, should create an advance directive. In addition to designating someone to make decisions in the event that someone cannot make decisions for themselves, the advance directive can also list the person’s preferences for medical care in the event the unexpected or something catastrophic happens. Catastrophic or unexpected medical concerns can happen at anytime. If someone cannot make decisions for themselves, it falls to their legal next of kin - their legal spouse, children and even adult parents. If you want to ensure a certain person is your medical decision maker, then you can do so easily in the advanced care directive. At the very least- make that decision and put it in writing even if you don’t complete anything else. “Ultimately, the goal of National Healthcare Decisions Day, and creating an advance directive, is that people express their wishes so that providers and facilities can respect those wishes and families also know how to navigate any decisions they may have to make,” said Dr. Shah. “We have amazing technology, but the one thing we don’t have yet is mind-reading technology. Until that happens, everyone needs an advance care directive.” Filling out the necessary documents for an advanced directive is a simple process and the spiritual care services team at Piedmont Newnan can provide you with what you need to get started, and assist you along the way. For more information, visit piedmont.org/spiritual-services.
A healthy gut is a happy gut – Probiotics, especially those found in natural foods like yogurt, can aid digestion and create and maintain a good balance of healthy bacteria in your gut. A large portion of your immune system is in your gut, so keeping it healthy is of the utmost importance. Natural probiotics can also be found in kefir, kimchi, miso, sauerkraut, sourdough and, sometimes in From left are two of Piedmont dark chocolate.

Fruit juice doesn’t give you the fiber or nutrients you need and even a diet soda can have chemicals and sweeteners that can do more harm than good.
“The best bet is water,” said Kacie Delong, registered dietitan nutritionist. “Water has zero calories, zero sugar and zero chemicals. It also can help you feel full and help your organs work properly.” While you don’t need eight glasses a day, it is important to stay properly hydrated so that you can replace the amount of water your body loses naturally every day.
Eat the rainbow – Adding fruits and vegetables to your diet can be difficult, but giving yourself a variety of fruits and vegetables, especially of those of different colors, helps keep things fresh and interesting. It might also help introduce fruits or vegetables to your diet that you hadn’t considered before. If the thought of piling fruit on to your plate isn’t appealing, add them to ice cream, yogurt or smoothies. If eating vegetables seems like a punishment, try roasting them or dipping them in a small amount of dressing for additional flavor.
Less is more – Portion size is one of the biggest problems facing Americans who are trying to lose weight. Menus at restaurants often provide enough food for two or more meals for the price of one and people at home tend to use large plates at the dinner table and fill it with the wrong percentages of food. When dining out, don’t be afraid to put aside half of your meal immediately. Not only does this give you lunch or dinner for tomorrow, but you won’t overeat today. When eating at home, use a smaller plate and put fruits and vegetables on half of the plate while splitting the other half equally between a whole grain and a protein. When you’re just starting out, try keeping a journal of what you are eating and how many calories are involved. Once you become conscious of your caloric intake, it becomes much easier to make better decisions.
“We are encouraging people to go further with food by trying new recipes and eating more fruits and vegetables to optimize their health,” said Delong. “Many of us do not meet our daily calcium and fiber needs. Fiber is great for digestive health and will also keep you feeling full throughout the day. Calcium helps promote healthy bones and prevent osteoporosis as you age. Consuming more whole foods and less processed foods will help us get these nutrients while decreasing sodium, something American’s get too much of. This month we had people try recipes in the Bistro such as fiber-packed cauliflower pizza, and fruit smoothies made with milk or yogurt to increase calcium. Trying fruits and vegetables in different ways can help us eat more of them! Going further with food is about making a conscious effort to choose foods that will benefit our body and overall health.” Eating healthy never sounds like a lot of fun, but there are tons of creative ideas and fantastic recipes available for adventurous eaters.

Faces of Philanthropy What’s raised here, stays here.
The Coweta Community Foundation hosted its first collection day for the By Kids, For Kids program recently. The event was held at Blue Fern Merchant in Downtown Newnan and resulted in $110 in donations from young philanthropists. “I’m pleased to see the young people of Coweta County get involved in learning about philanthropy at an early age,” said Will Conoly, Coweta Community Foundation board chair. “As a banker, I’m well aware that it’s never too early to learn the values of saving and giving, and it’s great that our Foundation has made this program available to local youth. I look forward to seeing how the program grows.” Last fall, the Foundation first announced its new program designed to promote philanthropy among Coweta’s youth. The Foundation began providing piggy banks for kids under the age of 14 (through eighth grade) to fill with change.
Several dates will be available this year for kids to drop off their deposits, and they even get their own passbooks to help them keep track of the amounts they are depositing and the total balance of how much money they have given throughout the year. In October and November later this year, five nonprofits will be selected that will work with children. The children themselves will vote on a recipient, and a grant for the total amount given by the kids this year will go to the organization of their choice. Banks, passbooks and further information about this program may be obtained by contacting the Foundation at 770-253-1833 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Erin Marsh, special events and programs coordinator for the Coweta Community Foundation, accepts a By Kids, For Kids donation from young philanthropist Marli Duncan.

Coweta-Fayette EMC crew join an international foundation effort to electrify a Bolivian village Linemen from Coweta Fayette EMC left Sunday, April 8, headed to Bolivia as part of a group of linemen representing five EMC’s in Georgia. Right of Way Supervisor Richard Davis and Journeyman Linemen Jeremy Brown will be joining 12 others from Carroll EMC, Flint Energies, Jackson EMC and Cobb EMC in San Isidro and Murmutani, Bolivia. The volunteers will work 14 days on an international electrification project. San Isidro is part of the Cochabamba department (state) located in the central part of Bolivia. It is estimated that 285,000 inhabitants live without access to electricity and about 60 percent live below the poverty level. “All the work here will be done on hooks and all the wire strung by hand,” Davis said. “There will be also be a language barrier we haven’t encountered on the other trips.”

NRECA International has been working with developing countries since 1962. More than 300 electric cooperatives support the work through monetary contributions, material donation, and sending hundreds of co-op linemen and employees abroad as volunteers. “It’s very humbling,” Davis said. “This will be my third international project. We are a very spoiled nation. The people we encounter on these trips are just so gracious. It’s hard being that far away from family, but it’s worth it.” Why is it important to CFEMC to send crews to develop electricity abroad? “We have the means,” said Davis. Cooperatives are “all about relationships and people,” he said. “The Bolivian government has been promising them electricity for 20 years. CFEMC aims to help deliver on that promise.”

Caregiver of the Month: Dawn Davis
ome Helpers of GA & AL will once again recognize and celebrate the relationship between caregivers and the families they serve in 2018. As people age, there are times when a little help, a little companionship, a little reassurance helps. Being independent does not mean doing everything by yourself. Being independent means being in control of your lifestyle, your schedule and the way in which your needs are met. Home Helpers of GA & AL will pay tribute throughout 2018 to its Exceptional Caregivers – who bring life, enjoyment, and independence, to their clients daily. Dawn Davis, with over 20 years experience, explains why she chooses to be a Caregiver:
“Caring for others has been a passion of mine throughout my life. Each individual I encounter through my experiences working in the field has enhanced my life. I find that a little time engaging with the clients you can not only touch their lives and make small and big differences; you can also learn and be changed by the interaction as well.”

Continental Society makes donation Progressive earns
2nd national award in less than a month
From Coweta County Schools Press Release
The Newnan Chapter of Continental Societies, Inc., made a donation to the Coweta County School System and Coweta County DFCS to benefit foster children enrolling in school. Members of the chapter delivered personal care bags to both organizations in recognition of National Child Abuse Prevention month in April. The personal care bags will be provided to youth initially entering foster care through the local DFCS Office as well as those youth enrolling in the district from other counties at the school system’s Central Registration Center. Currently, CCSS foster care children and youth receive supportive services through the Foster Care Program (FCP) which derived from the “Every Student Succeeds Act” (ESSA). FCP focuses on school access, improved educational outcomes, and enhanced academic stabil-

The Chic Industrial Vibe The industrial look is revolutionizing home decor. Everything from cast iron, metal piping, steel tables and raw unfinished wood are available right here in our local shops and are one-of-kind pieces. This chic look may not be for everyone, but it is becoming increasingly popular.
Circa Antiques & Coffee House
The Good Junk Company in Senoia has old metal cabinets, metal cubbies and even a coffee table made from a horse trough. My favorite piece in the store is a large 3 by 6 foot island made by BB and her husband. Circa Antiques and Coffee House in Tyrone offers many wonderful items perfect for your home or office. As Lisa Lytle likes to say, they are “home ready.” She also has some industrial raw and old classic looking pieces of furniture. Marilyn Bailey's Juliana’s Furniture Galleries of Newnan carry many industrial light fixtures which are stunning and make a huge statement in your home. They even have Edison-style vintage light bulbs. Lori Duncan over at Blue Fern Merchant has a super coffee table made out of this old railroad piece and is totally worth checking out in downtown Newnan. The industrial look has a much more personal impact on my friend, Beth Hutchison Tripp. She has an incredible one-of-a-kind industrial piece with an awesome legacy. Beth’s parents, Jimmy and Jane Hutchinson, owned the unforgettable Hutchinson Hardware in Senoia for years. Beth loved this cool piece in the back of the store that held bolts and was painted green. So when Beth was 12 years old she asked her father if she could have it one day. Well, that day came. Beth had the green paint striped off. Each drawer is stamped with the size of the bolts and is imprinted on the drawers. Beth savors most that each time she opens the draws the smell transcends her back to treasured memories with her father. So if you are up for something different, check out our friends above and make sure and tell them The Paper and The Shopper sent you.

The gift of domesticity For centuries people have hired others to help them take care of their homes. These people have held many different titles; some with great respect and others no so much. The names range from servants, maids, help, housekeepers and more. How these individuals have been treated and cared for has not always been with kind and high regard. The definition of the word domestic is “someone who does menial tasks around our home.” Wow! Are you kidding me? … menial … really? That so upsets me and I also believe it is highly demeaning and insulting to those who help us hold our households and lives together.
Fingernails that make you stand out I love beautiful long nails. I have since I was six years old. I also adore horses. Now, there is a connection there. I used to bite my nails but one day my dad said if I stopped biting my nails, he would buy me a horse. I stopped right then. He kept his word and not long afterward, I got my horse. Nails make your hands look longer and more elegant. Now there are all kinds of nail options from articlic, gel, dip, silk and even just a nice manicure. There are nail salons all over our area where you can invest in having beautiful nails. I do love those quick glue ones if I have an event coming up and need fabulous nails in a hurry. As far as color, I am not personally fond of black, bright blue or green. I certainly would not suggest them for a serious interview either. Just because something is “in” doesn't make it right for everyone. I love a classic, sophisticated french manicure. The other day I met some precious young ladies from College Park and these young ladies were rocking great nails. I was lucky their daddy let me take a pic of their nails. And I got these teens’ opinions about nail color and the type of nails to try. They agreed with me that black was a no for me. Of course I knew that but it was fun to hear them agree.
5th annual Abby’s
I know what I do well and I also know what I do not. I can rip out a fireplace and rebuild it. I can paint shutters on a ladder 24 feet high. I can lay flooring, counsel women, help others grow their business and set goals for their lives and help them fulfill their dreams. But I cannot sort socks to save my life and John Winters has often found me buried under a mound of laundry. So because he loves me so much and loves a organized home one year he paid this dear woman to come and help me clean. He also got me gift certificates at Christmas for a home organizer. This was a precious gift from a loving husband to help out an overwhelmed wife. I am blessed to have Rosa and Allan in my life who have helped me keep my home and yard in order. And their gifts is just that, a precious gift to me and also to Winters. And their gift is anything but menial to me. These precious people have the gift of keeping your life in tip top order so you can focus on your gifts. House cleaning just isn’t my gift. I wish I was a better housekeeper, but I’m just not. I am not proud of it and I share this hoping that others with the same problems will realize they are not alone. Never be afraid to ask for help in whatever area you need.

Volunteers needed for Playground Build Days at Howard Warner From Special Reports Volunteers are now being sought for two Build Days set aside for work on the Howard Warner Community Center Playground. The workdays will be Friday and Saturday, April 27 and 28 and the hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. Those interested in volunteering may sign up on the Coweta Community Foundation website by visiting cowetafoundation.org, clicking on the “Events” tab, then selecting the appropriate day on the calendar. Last fall, Dr Pepper Snapple Group (DPS) and national nonprofit KaBOOM! awarded the Coweta Community Foundation a $15,000 Let’s Play Community Construction Grant that will be used to help build the playground at the Howard Warner Community Center in Newnan. Hundreds of children are expected to benefit from the new playground, and many businesses, civic groups and individuals throughout Coweta County helped raised the $70,000 that was needed for the project. Among those most eager to see the KaBOOM! grant come to fruition in the building of the new playground is City of Newnan Mayor Pro Tem Cynthia Jenkins, who has been heavily involved with efforts to bring the new community center to life in Newnan’s historic Chalk Level neighborhood. “I am very excited about the addition of the playground to the Howard Warner Community Center campus,” Jenkins
said. “There was once a playground in the same location. This project restores that community amenity. I’m so happy with the way our community came together from all walks of life, all parts of our community and businesses to build this place to play, to learn, to have family time and foster community. It will be a wonderful asset again for the Boys and Girls Club, other users of the center and the community at large.” The KaBOOM! grant is part of Let’s Play, an initiative by DPS to provide kids and families with the tools, places and inspiration to make active play a daily priority. Unstructured, child-directed play has proven to help kids develop physically, emotionally, socially and intellectually, yet today’s kids have less time and fewer opportunities to play than any previous generation. As a result of Let’s Play grants and projects, more than 6.5 million kids will benefit from new or improved playgrounds around the nation by the end of 2020. Dr Pepper Snapple has committed more than $35.5 million to Let’s Play through 2019, impacting youth-serving organizations across the U.S., as well as Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean. Since its launch in 2011, Let’s Play has provided more than 10 million children with more opportunities to play via safe, accessible playgrounds and sports equipment. Moreover, by 2020 it will have engaged more than 80,000 volunteers from Dr Pepper Snapple, its partners and its communities in this effort.

Budd encourages bringing young people to 2018 Friends of Wadsworth Concert This coming Saturday brings the biggest night of the year at the “Wonderful Wadsworth” as Newnan Cultural Arts Commission presents the annual Friends of Wadsworth chamber music concert. Concert director, host and talented soprano, Newnan’s own Courtenay Budd is encouraging bringing young people to experience the world of classical chamber music. “Every spring right after the Wadsworth concert I like to look out and see how many in the audience have brought a teenager or grade schooler along. There are always some, and the responses of these young people never fail to remind us performers of why we do what we do,” Budd said as she prepares for the April 14 concert.
Newnan’s own Courtenay Budd
“At times it can feel as if classical music is on a kind of downturn, that it’s harder and harder to keep it going for the audiences of tomorrow,” she said. “But the hardest part is getting these young folks in the door. Once there, they are hooked.” The Friends of Wadsworth Concert series carries Violinist Chee-Yun on the spring concerts made popular by Newnan's famous son and world-renowned pianist Charles Wadsworth, founding director of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center in New York City. For some two decades Charles Wadsworth brought world class talent from the classical music scene to perform in his hometown. Early Wadsworth and Friends concerts helped raise funds to renovate Newnan’s 1939 art deco auditorium and outfit it with technical and acoustical enhancements. The City of Newnan honored Wadsworth by naming the performance hall in his Flutist Angela Jones-Reus honor. Budd continues Charles Wadsworth’s legacy and has gathered a stellar group of classical musicians for the 2018 Friends of Wadsworth concert including violinist Chee-Yun, who appeared at several of the original Wadsworth and Friends concerts; flutist Angela Jones-Reus, who performed with Wadsworth when he was inducted in the Georgia Music Hall of Fame at Cobb Energy Centre in 2010; pianist Andrew Armstrong, an internationally-touring pianist who has made previous appearances on the Wadsworth stage; and cellist Sophie Shao, who has performed with the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center and is on the faculty at Vassar College where Budd has begun teaching. “I’m particularly excited about paying tribute to Leonard Bernstein on the 100th anniversary of his birth. Nearly the entire second half of our concert is his compositions,” Budd said. “Bernstein meant so much to the world of music. One of his many great contributions is a quality he shared with our friend Charles Wadsworth. He made the concert hall more fun, helped people to relax while listening, and introduced young audiences to great music.”

“Saturday’s concert includes Ian Clarke’s ‘The Great Train Race,’ where the flute actually imitates the sound of a train – starting, accelerating, slowing, whistling – such fun! – as well as selections from Bernstein’s ‘Peter Pan,’ and ‘West Side Story,’ a string trio he wrote as a teen, and a rarely-heard but funny set of kid songs entitled, ‘I Hate Music!,’” Budd said.
The ideal candidate will have a professional appearance and attitude, with a friendly and outgoing personality. Hours can be flexible, but quality time must be invested in order to be successful.
“So I hope people won’t miss this year’s concert, and why not bring along a young person in your life? You could open up a whole new world to them,” she added.

The concert program has changed a bit since it was announced a few weeks ago. The “Latin flavor” portion was replaced after guitarist Robert Belinic was unable to attend this year’s concert. There will be selections from such composers as Johann Sebastian Bach, César Franck and Maurice Ravel. “In the few years I’ve been doing this I’ve noticed a trend. The more topsy-turvy the process leading up to it, the better the concert is,” Budd said. “So April 14 should be one heck of a performance! After multiple upheavals of dates, artists, and repertoire, we are left with a warm spring weekend, a terrific lineup, and a fabulous evening planned.” https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/3369529

Piedmont Newnan Announces Expansion; $2 Million Contribution From Special Reports Hogansville residents, Holland Ware and Faye Hendrix-Ware have pledged $2 million to support construction of a new 18-bed Intermediate Care Unit (IMCU) at Piedmont Newnan Hospital.

“Partnering with Piedmont Newnan Hospital and seeing the expansion is something I have been hoping for,” said Ware. “This is an honor for me and my family and we are looking forward to seeing the same level of care and concern that Piedmont has shown in all other areas of patient care. After completion, we look forward to partnering on other projects to further research, education and the treatment of cancer.” The $8.5 million expansion will increase the total number of beds at Piedmont Newnan and allow the hospital to serve more of the critically ill close to home. Upon completion, Ware and Hendrix-Ware will have the right to name each of the patient rooms, in honor of their contribution. “I am greatly honored that the Intermediate Care Unit at Piedmont Newnan Hospital is recognizing me by naming rooms for my family,” added Ware. Last summer, Piedmont Newnan opened the Faye Hendrix-Ware Breast Health Center, establishing a high-risk breast clinic here in Newnan, thanks to contributions from Ware and Hendrix-Ware.

“Both Holland and I have had personal and family experiences where cancer has touched our lives and we are both very pleased to be a part of the cutting edge technology and early detection methods available through our contributions to Piedmont Newnan Hospital,” said Hendrix-Ware. “We are certain that not only the level of patient care and treatmentCheck will be superior, but the family experience will be greatly enhanced as well. Partnering with Piedmont is the
perfect fit and we look forward to the positive impact both the high-risk breast clinic and opening of the intermediate care unit will have on our communities.” Piedmont Newnan is a 136-bed, acute-care, community hospital in Newnan, Georgia, and the only acute-care facility in Coweta County. Since opening a new facility in 2012, the hospital has seen tremendous growth and in 2017 admitted just under 10,000 patients. The expansion will allow Piedmont Newnan to keep more patients close to home for care. Construction on the new intermediate care unit is expected to start at the end of May 2018 and the hospital anticipates completion by the end of November 2018. “We are extremely grateful to Faye and Holland for this monumental gift. Their confidence in the care we provide our patients is evident in this level of support,” said Mike Robertson, CEO, Piedmont Newnan Hospital. “Piedmont Newnan is dedicated to providing high-quality, patient centered care close to home and this expansion will continue to propel us forward and have a huge positive impact on patient care.” As a not-for-profit health system, Piedmont relies on the generosity of donors like Holland Ware and Faye Hendrix-Ware to offer many programs and services us out at to the community.

Try a new springtime pasta salad Who doesn’t love pasta? Whether it’s in macaroni and cheese, spaghetti and meatballs, or a favorite lasagna recipe, pasta is as American as … Well, let me rephrase that. While we often associate pasta with Italy, the National Pasta Association (NPA) in Washington, DC, says that pasta “is believed to have existed in some form in ancient China and Greece,” and there is evidence of pasta dishes appearing in Italian cookbooks of the early 1200s. The association also notes, “In 1789, Thomas Jefferson brought the first ‘macaroni’ maker to America after visiting Europe as an ambassador to France. This inspired Jefferson to design a machine with instructions for making pasta.” Bless you, Thomas Jefferson, because I happily include “pasta” on my list of favorite foods. Pasta sometimes gets a bad rap because of the carbohydrates, but perhaps it shouldn’t. At the 2017 Food and Nutrition Conference and Expo in Chicago, a new study was presented which found that “the diets of adults who eat pasta are associated with higher daily consumption of total vegetables than the diets of non-pasta-eaters. The increased vegetable intake referred specifically to red and orange vegetables, such as tomatoes and peppers.”
I found that interesting since one of my favorite spring recipes is a pasta salad that happens to include red bell peppers, so maybe that study was on to something! Now I realize people eat pasta salad year-round these days, but not me. I don’t want a cold salad in cold weather. When the temperature warms up a bit, though, I’m reaching for my cookbooks and revisiting the recipes that I tuck away until around Easter each year. And that includes this recipe I found in a cookbook sent to me by one of my blog readers a few years ago. “Sarah in Mississippi” was one of the “ladies who lunch” at a place called the Glass Slipper in Fort Walton Beach, which has since closed. But luckily for me, Sarah shared a cookbook of their favorite recipes, and this pasta salad recipe caught my eye because of its curry powder and cashews. It’s also pretty! And for springtime entertaining, what could be easier that dishing up a new pasta salad? Try this one and let me know what you think!

A buyer may see the weakness of the offer, but the attitude of the sales person provides confidence and assurance. Attitude is the first key. Finally, have self-worth. Your value of yourself should be not only be in the products or service you provide. Your self-worth should be in your training, tactics and personality. Place your value in what you know about your industry and what you’ve discovered and understand about the prospect’s industry. Their negativity, bad attitude, or rudeness should never diminish your view of yourself. If your value or worth is challenged, ask yourself the tough questions. Figure it out and fix it. Visualize every tough challenge as an opportunity to improve.

In sales, technique is vital. Every effective sales process must have a system. More often than not, basic sales techniques are not industry specific. There is prospecting, calling for the appointment, needs analysis, research and proposal, overcome objectives, ask for the order, fulfillment, and then the all-important follow-up and relationship maintenance. The “real” side of the sale process involves the sales person’s diligence, attitude and awareness of self-worth. Most sales managers love to provide training on systems and standards. Some rarely delve into the psyche of the sales person; helping them properly evaluate, adapt and overcome. First, you should have due diligence to uncover everything you need to know about the customer before the first appointment. You should learn answers to questions that are common knowledge and should never be asked; such as office hours, locations, brand specific products that are offered, etc. The prospective customer should hear your knowledge and diligence in the questions you ask. Attitude is the heart of every sales person. Attitude can make or break the sale. The proper attitude can

Q. How can I protect my home from termite damage?
Termites cost Georgia homeowners tens of millions of dollars each year to repair and treat infested structures. This is peak season for termite swarms, so chances are, you may see a termite swarm if you haven’t already.

Subterranean termites are the most common wood-destroying insects in the Southeastern U.S. They are a normal part of soil around buildings in our area and can be found in most any suburban yard in the Southeast. Whether or not a home is susceptible to a termite infestation depends on a variety of factors though including construction type, home maintenance, landscaping, and perhaps conditions in and around the structure that favor the activity, growth and survival of termites. Subterranean termites are soft-bodied insects that dehydrate easily, so they must have access to a moisture source. They usually find that moisture by maintaining contact with the soil, but they can also find it in a variety of above ground sources like leaky roofs, water trapped or wicked into exterior walls, rain gutters, and condensation. They will also eat nearly anything that contains cellulose including wood products, books, paper, boxes, paneling, the paper on drywall, wood cabinets, etc. They also prefer softwoods, like pine, over hardwoods and softwoods are often used as structural wall studs, sill plates, joists, and headers in homes. So how can you protect your home from termite damage? You should contact a licensed termite control company for an inspection. To find out if a company is licensed, you can call the Georgia Department of Agriculture at 404-656-3641.
Finally, termite control companies offer two types of contracts - 1.) retreatment of a recurring problem, 2.) retreatment of a recurring problem and some or all of the repair costs associated with new termite damage. Only the second type of contract will pay for repair of damages to a structure caused by subterranean termites. Inspections are the cornerstone of the difficult process of termite management, so it is advisable to have an annual termite inspection.
Members who have been elected to Active Membership for 10 years.
Although it may be tempting to consider treating for termites yourself, it is best to leave it to the professionals. The knowledge, treatment techniques, products, and equipment needed to get rid of termites hiding in a home or building depend on the skilled practice and understanding from an experienced professional.

If you find what you think could be termites or are told that you have termites, you can bring a sample to the Coweta County Extension office for positive identification.

The Staging Life Pet Problems When Selling Your House
From the smallest land owner to the largest landscaper!

Did you know that owning a pet can significantly reduce the value of your home? Preparing a home to sell is difficult enough in the best of times, but throw in a pet or two and the task can seem impossible. Staging a house to sell is crucial in any real estate market but how do you create the illusion that you are not a pet owner and that the “inmates haven’t taken over the asylum”?

• Outdoor Evidence -The first 10 -20 seconds are the most important in how the buyer will evaluate your property. Signs of a pet, such as digging, damaging plants or leaving behind their “deposits” are a huge area to address. Cover the wholes, replace the damaged plants and pick up the “deposits”. Try to keep Rover entertained so he won’t fill the need to dig. • Chewing and Scratching Damage - Any species can ruin the look of a home. Inspect everything to identify any damage, such as front and back doors, window ledges, screens, carpet and hardwood flooring, edges of trim, even your furniture. Why should the furniture matter? Because if a buyer sees that you’ve let your fur babies destroy the furniture, they will wonder if the house is really cared for properly. Why risk it? • Stains - Pets have accidents and most of the time we don’t find them until the stain has dried and set in. It’s important to decide if they are removable with a professional carpet cleaning, spot cleaning or if carpet should be replaced. Hardwood floors, may need refinishing, but that doesn’t always work either. • Odors - Are the number 1 pet give away that a buyer can experience. When they walk through the front door, it seems they always take a deep breath in an effort to relax and look at a property sensibly and you want that breath to be pleasant and not obvious that you have a pet. Pet odors can live on your furniture, drywall, flooring, and pet hair will also have an odor that smells bad. Constant vacuuming and mopping, repainting walls and trim can help eliminate pet odors. Keep covers on the furniture and constantly wash and replace to reduce the odors. Wash the pet bedding often to help with odors. • Showing Instructions. If possible, remove any evidence of pets, by putting away pet toys, bedding, litter boxes, food and crates and remove the pets during a showing. Hire a pet sitter, or send them to day care. Selling a home with pets is worth it in the long run, but will take some work. For more info on how to prepare your home to sell, contact….

Films In Release: Ready Player One … Fix RATING Finding an easter egg in a video game might change the course of history. “Ready Player One” is Spielberg’s attempt to translate to the big screen the best-selling throwback novel of the same name written by Ernest Cline. Having read the book, I can safely say Spielberg has largely succeeded. But in making the unique story more relatable to a broad viewing audience, much of the charm that endeared it to readers is lost. And by relying so heavily on animation, this might be the least Spielbergian of the great master’s films to date. In the somewhat near future, the bulk of society have lost themselves in a virtual video game world known as the Oasis. When teenager Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan) appears to be on his way to finding an easter egg in the game that will grant him total control of the Oasis, he is hunted by IOI, an evil corporation. IOI will stop at nothing to take the egg into its corporate treasury. And that means that Wade is now playing the game with his very life at stake. Mainly a computer generated animation extravaganza, “Ready Player One” spends too much time focused on action and thrills and not enough on the marvelous world building. Hence the character development of the novel is lost in favor of a chase narrative that compresses so much story that the entire affair seems rushed and over-labored. But that isn’t to say it’s not fun, and one scene involving a famous Stanley Kubrick film is the movie’s highlight. ••••••••••••••••••••••••
Final Portrait … Fix RATING This one is not for the impatient. And that’s the point. “Final Portrait” is about a young man named James Lord (Armie Hammer), who sits for a portrait by older artist Alberto Giacometti (Geoffrey Rush). What Lord thought might take a day, turns into two weeks or more. It’s an endurance test, as Giacometti just can’t decide when the portrait is finished. Directed well by actor and director Stanley Tucci (see his wonderful “Big Night”), “Final Portrait” can try viewer patience. But Rush and Hammer are excellent, and Tucci collaborator the charming Tony Shalhoub (“Monk”) appears in a significant role. ••••••••••••••••••••••••
Rave Party Massacre … VOD and Streaming April 10 Since this one is produced by my wife, Maggie, and co-written by me, I naturally can’t review it. But I need to mention it, because the feature film was shot in Newnan (mostly in the old Piedmont Hospital building on Hospital Road). And it’s getting a proper release from Breaking Glass Pictures.
“Rave Party Massacre,” formerly titled “DeadThirsty,” takes place on the eve of an abandoned hospital’s demotion. Evil walks its empty corridors to the pulsating echo of 150 beats per minute. It’s 1992, an uncertain time of uprising, of violent revolution against the so-called New World Order. When Rachel, Branson, and others attend an illegal rave party held in the facility, they encounter a malevolent presence lurking within. A hallucinogenic drug nightmare infused with illicit partying and forbidden sex, these young ravers will soon discover the murderous world of the DeadThirsty. ••••••••••••••••••••••••
Unsane … V No Fix RATING Ugly, intentionally so, Steven Soderbergh pulls out his iPhone and remakes the nightmarish “Shock Corridor” for the “MeToo” generation. Schlocky and hard to look at, “Unsane” will be divisive. Hampered by a hackneyed conclusion, there’s still much to like, but you never forget you’re watching a movie shot on a phone, and that’s a problem. The story here centers on Sawyer Valentini (Claire Foy) who is mistakingly committed to a mental health facility. But is anything that happens to her really happening? A product placement for Apple, Soderbergh’s well-meaning script strains credulity if taken literally. Instead, you’re meant, if I can be kind, to take the film metaphorically. So, when Sawyer finds herself committed in a co-ed facility against her will, the conditions and the ridiculous medical treatments and practices are very much like one might experience in a nightmare world. And if you buy into this approach, “Unsane” is a perfect arthouse thriller. ••••••••••••••••••••••••
Foxtrot … Fix RATING The incredibly well lensed “Foxtrot” is a tough look at the stages of grief. This vivid Israeli feature takes it toll with an inventive structure that challenges viewers to put the pieces together. A knock at the door delivers life crushing news to Michael and Daphna Feldman. Collapsing upon hearing the information, Daphna (or Dafna played by Sarah Adler) causes a ready-waiting team of medical professionals go to work on her injecting a sedative and carrying her to the bedroom. Meanwhile Michael (Lior Ashkenazi) takes the report that his son has been killed while serving in the military a bit more normally. At least, at first his reaction is what one might expect, but slowly his breakdown becomes more and more unhinged. And when another announcement hours later alters the previous details, Michael’s grief turns to unbridled anger. What he does next is selfish and impulsive. Writer/director Samuel Moaz has crafted a fine narrative that intimately examines grief in minute detail. The tedious nature of the approach may frustrate impatient viewers, but the excellent cinematography
by Giora Bejach (“Big Bad Wolves”) is a feast for the eyes. ••••••••••••••••••••••••
Pacific Rim Uprising … V No Fix RATING An almost parody of Guillermo del Toro’s 2013 high-concept throwback monster movie, “Pacific Rim: Uprising” is on the level of a Saturday morning cartoon. With a production and screenplay that feels and even looks very 1990s “Mighty Morphin Power Rangers,” “Uprising” lacks the edge and inventive fun of its predecessor. Set years after the events that resulted in the end of the Kaiju threat, Jake Pentecost (John Boyega), son of deceased hero Stacker Pentecost, is drawn back into training some youngsters to pilot the big robot fighting machines. Just when drifting and dual piloting skills are about to be honed, a new threat emerges. The Kaiju world may be sealed off, but left behind is a deadly, extraterrestrial, organic menace that can eliminate mankind. Thoroughly ridiculous and cheesy, “Uprising” is a sad follow-up to a promising unique idea. Sure, these films are just monster movies, but the first film had bite and narrative depth giving the effects more impact. This sequel is positively wince-inducing. ••••••••••••••••••••••••
I Kill Giants … Fix RATING A good-looking and well acted graphic novel adaptation, “I Kill Giants” is the moving and entertaining tale of a little girl dealing with personal trauma. Poignant, “I Kill Giants” uses fantasy elements to grab viewers and discuss the effect of tragedy on the youngest among us. It also reminds us of the importance of creativity and imagination as a device to deal with life’s difficulties. ••••••••••••••••••••••••
April Releases To Watch For: A Quiet Place … Emily Blunt and John Krasinski (who also directs) lead this tale set in what looks like an apocalyptic future where humans are stalked by monsters, who hunt by sound. Hence, you have to be very quiet or you will die. This movie “sounds” frightening. The production design reminds me of last year’s chiller “It Comes at Night.” ••••••••••••••••••••••••
Avengers: Infinity War … Reportedly the first half of a $1 Billion project, “Infinity War” brings together all of Marvel’s heroes (even the Guardians) to do battle with the evil Thanos. Big doesn’t adequately describe this franchise moment as the directing brothers behind “Captain America: Civil War” try to extend the superhero universe in a meaningful, while, also, entertaining way. Some characters might not survive this “War.” •••••••••••••••••••••••• (Jonathan W. Hickman is an entertainment attorney, filmmaker, college professor, and novelist.

SHOPPER Real Estate
Coweta County Real Estate Market Update With the first quarter of 2018 winding down, I thought it would be a good time for an update on the real estate market in Coweta County. As has been the trend for quite a while now, the listing inventory is very low and buyer demand continues to grow. As of March 27th, there are 596 detached homes for sale in Coweta County, per Georgia MLS (GAMLS). So far in 2018, there have been 517 homes sold on the GAMLS. The average days on market for a sold listing is 60 days. That gives us about a 3.2 month supply of listings for buyers. Listings are closing for an average of 98% of the asking price. The average sales price, in Coweta, for February of 2018 was $254,611. Of the 517 homes sold this year, only five were above $600,000 and none were above $1,000,000. New construction continues to boom. Of the 596 active listings, 206 are new construction. Of the 206 new construction listings, 166 are between a $200,000 and $500,000 list price. However, there is still a high demand for more new construction and more listings. It has become common for your buyer to encounter multiple offer
situations when looking for homes and making an offers. This is especially common for listings under $300,000. Coweta is a highly competitive real estate environment for buyers right now. This is great for sellers. It is not uncommon, for a seller to receive more than asking price for their home, in certain price ranges, in today’s market. There have been several new construction projects submitted, in 2018, to Coweta County Planning and Zoning for review. Those project locations include areas such as Gordon Rd, Eastside School Rd, Palmetto-Tyrone Rd, Gray Girls and Rowe Rd, Smokey Rd, Tommy Lee Cook Rd, Old Hwy 85 and Rockhouse Rd. Home Values have increased significantly since 2017. In February of 2017, the average list price was $250,970, per GAMLS. The average sold price was $245,501. In February of 2018, the average list price was $258,494 and the average sold price was $254,611. As of March 27th, there are 458 single family detached homes under contract in Coweta County. Despite interest rates being expected to rise this year, I do not see these trends slowing down in Coweta County. Land, commercial and especially industrial markets, are also strong right now. It is a historically great time for Coweta County Real Estate.

The group consists of 100 women who meet quarterly, each bringing $100 in contributions to benefit the community. ***** Dr. Seuss fact: The correct way to pronounce his name is “Dr. Zoice” (rhymes with voice.) Instead, people would say (and still do) “Soose” and he got tired of correcting it. ***** Atlanta Trek, a full service bicycle shop, is set to open a new location in downtown Newnan.

This is Coweta County’s James E. McGuffey Nature Center and Trails at the Fairgrounds at 275 Pine Road, Newnan, Ga. 30263. This project was introduced by two Master Gardener Extension Volunteers (MGEV) driving the rejuvenation of the trails. Pat Farmer and Dale Senko (Project Co-chairs shown above) had a dream in 2015 to make this a benefit for the citizens of Coweta County, The Boys and Girls Clubs, Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts and 4-H. Many scouts perform their projects here, groups have scavenger hunts, and Master Gardener volunteers put in hours and hours to make this a beautiful place for you. Currently a scout performing his Eagle Scout requirements is building a bridge as part of one of the trails. MGEVs have sponsored the Nature Trail Festival and Fall Tree Festival, as well as coordinate free trainings, presentations, and tours. This relaxing oasis is also a refuge for pollinators including bees, butterflies, moths, and hummingbirds that can be found in the pollinator garden near the pond in the summer.

The Team is planting 80 Christmas fern to add to the over 200 already on the trail. Photo on the Right – trail, outdoor classroom and overlook map. The goals of this Nature Center project are 1.) to give citizens a place to enjoy and learn about their natural surroundings, 2.) to remove invasive plants 3.) to add native species in order to restore an ecological balance and 4.) to teach citizens to identify native trees, plants and wildlife so they can use this information in their own landscapes. Another goal is to teach citizens the importance of stormwater management in their Coweta County neighborhoods. Since 2015, the MGEVs have been restoring and removing the harmful invasive plant species and replacing them with the native plants. This has been hard work for both the Master Gardener volunteers and Coweta County team. They have also added interpretive signs so visitors can recognize and learn about the plants and wildlife on the trails. Not only is it beautiful and educational, but one of the trails is handicap accessible so everyone can enjoy nature first hand. What a great place to take the children for a weekend hike or afterschool for snacks and exploring.

Jaimee Paul There’s a reason why the melodies of Great American Songbook have withstood the test of time. Jaimee Paul, along with bandleader and husband, Leif Shires, believes in the strength and beauty of these songs by creating a fresh take on them and making them their own. Ranging from jazz standards of the 30’s, stretching to pop standards of the 70’s, Jaimee and Leif believe that a show shouldn’t be just another concert, but an evening of fun, love, and happiness that should be experienced and remembered,“Always And Forever.” 3 p.m. Tickets $15 / $20.
