“Acting Lessons”

With school back in session, it’s time to remind kids how easy they have it today. Let’s just start with getting to school. They can take buses, ride with friends or carpools or even drive their own car. We had to walk to school and walk home. Our parents had to walk to school uphill both ways. Our grandparents had to walk to school uphill both ways in the snow. Kids today are more worried about making sure their smartphone has enough battery power to get them through the day. They text message. We passed handwritten notes. The latter a dying art by the way. I am amazed with their school supply lists though. As I recall we just showed up. Today, they need everything from cotton balls to perfumed tissues to pink erasers, 64-pack of Crayons, four notebooks, spiral paper, stress balls, sharpened pencils and Dora the Explorer or Teenage Mutant Turtles or something lunch boxes. And that’s just for the high schoolers. And of course the rules. My favorite is, to put this as delicately as I can, the “Throw Up Rule.” Apparently, if one gets sick the only way to get to the nurse and thus get a note to go home is to have a witness to see said “throw up.” Again, apparently, just throwing up is not sufficient. One must have the aforementioned witness. Middle SON once asked his teacher for a pass to go to the bathroom to, again, apparently, toss his lunch or kiss the porcelain god or whatever they call it now. The teacher was going to send another student to witness said act, but it was too late. Middle SON just borrowed the classroom trash can. With a teacher and 25 students present, the “witness rule” was achieved and he was allowed to visit the nurse for the call home. Another rule, and one I personally appreciate, is the “No Wearing Hats Backward Rule.” I appreciate this rule because I was constantly asking/begging/threatening Eldest SON to wear his baseball cap like a normal person. I confess that the phrase, “that just looks stupid wearing a hat that way” came from my mouth more than once. “It’s a gang symbol,” Eldest said about why the need for the backward hat rule. Apparently gangs wear their hats backward because … And Eldest is not in a gang but still wears his hat backwards because … Whatever.

U U U U U U U U On a much more somber note, I recently learned that Coweta County ranks sixth in the state for abuse of opioids (prescription drugs) among middle and high schoolers. That’s 6 out of 159 counties. That is a serious problem. Top Ten in drug abuse is not a title anyone wants. Fortunately, a wide-ranging group of individuals from the civic, business, religious, legal, medical and public safety worlds have joined together to look at this problem and find ways to fix it. Known as C-SAP (Coweta Substance Abuse Prevention), this group has spent months dealing with various issues tied to this epidemic. My wife Corby and I are on the committee and we invite you to a Town Hall Meeting where you can learn more about this crisis and more importantly, learn how you can help our community. It will be on Thursday, Aug. 30 from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at The Donald W. Nixon Centre for Performing and Visual Arts (1523 Lower Fayetteville Road) This is important for our community. Please join us.

Most of us are not living life to our full potential. Perhaps we’re allowing negative thoughts, past failures, or feelings of inadequacy to dominate our thinking and our way of life. Or maybe we are just plain wore out, broke down, and tore up!” Whatever the reason, there is a solution. Decide what you want your life to look like, then start acting! Each day, practice the way you want to look, act, and think – in your own eyes and the way others perceive you. Act as if you are now that person! With persistence, you’ll begin to exhibit the traits of the person you want to be. Soon, you will be acting like the person you have now become! Start your acting lessons today by trying the following suggestions. DECIDE exactly how you want others to perceive you and how you wish to perceive yourself – personality, looks, attitude, energy, ability, confidence, etc. Think about the qualities you admire in others. STAND TALL – put a spring in your step, a twinkle in your eye and a smile on your face. Act like you know who you are, where you are going, and what you’re about. You’re now speaking with body language. LOOK GOOD! Dressing up to the next level always makes us feel more confident. Dress the new part you are playing. CHOOSE to have a positive attitude. Look for good in every situation. Try to find positive solutions to negative problems. And don’t let the negative thinking of others (or yourself) spoil your new role in life. SHOW CONFIDENCE in yourself. If you don’t believe you can act the part, no one else will either. BE YOURSELF! Don’t try to compare your abilities or looks to anyone else. Just show off the very best of the “new” person you have become. But remember, the world already has enough Big Shots.

with Angela

Finding fun recipes in old cookbooks For years now, I have enjoyed collecting vintage cookbooks and pamphlets. Sometimes I’ll wander through an antique mall with an eye out for them, and occasionally I’ll come across a whole batch for one low price. Some of these publications were distributed by companies promoting a particular brand of produce, like Sunkist lemons, while others were once premiums given out by companies like Baker’s Chocolate, Snowdrift Cake Flour, Wesson Oil, or Knox Gelatin. The titles of these old publications are often amusing and the sort of thing you’d never see today. I found one booklet published for the men and women of General Motors in 1954, and the title is “Cakes Men Like.” Most of these recipes are for cakes anyone would like—Lemon Coconut, Banana Spice, Pineapple Upside Down Cake—but there in all its Technicolor glory sits an angel food cake absolutely swimming in what looks like an inch or more of gloppy bubblegum-pink frosting. (The men can have it!) I have found some real treasures in old cookbooks too, and the history of a recipe always makes me enjoy making it even more. Whether it’s a chocolate cake or a casserole of yesteryear, there’s something so pleasant about knowing that I’m carrying on the

A favorite “cookbook-collected” recipe I like to make is a chicken and artichoke salad that came from a now-closed Minnesota B&B and restaurant called Just Like Grandma’s. This recipe from an old Just Like Grandma’s booklet is attributed to someone named Shan. I don't know Shan, but I can tell you that Shan's recipe sure is a tasty one (and yes, my husband likes it too). This easy, cool salad recipe calls for just 1/8 teaspoon curry, and I questioned whether that was enough since I really love me some curry. Indeed, this small amount adds just the right zip to this salad! In these warmer days of summer, I appreciate any recipe that keeps me from having to turn on the oven, and perhaps some of you feel the same way. So if you’d like to whip up something cool and tasty that can serve as a great lunch or dinner dish, try this one. It’ll give you more time to head to antique malls in search of your own vintage cookbooks!

We Believe…

In aging with optimism! Having a “glass half-full” approach to life has long been considered important for overall wellness. But evidence suggests that there may be truth in this folk wisdom. Humana recently surveyed 2,000 people aged 60 and over, and found that 87 percent of seniors who identify themselves as “most optimistic” reported their health as good to excellent. This is compared to 44 percent for those who said they’re “least optimistic.” Also, the most optimistic people reported nine fewer physically unhealthy and seven fewer mentally unhealthy days per month than their least optimistic counterparts. Seniors who rated themselves as most optimistic also reported positively on other attributes linked to health, including sleep, confidence and overall happiness. Here are some tips for how to stay on the sunny side of life from Dr. Yolangel Hernandez Suarez, Humana vice president and chief medical officer for care delivery: 1. Take ownership and recognize that your health is your own. To achieve your best health, you need to set personal goals. 2. Engage with your doctor or other health care professional and build a trusting relationship. 3. Find a higher purpose that makes you excited to get up in the morning. 4. Remain socially engaged, not isolated, and nurture close relationships. 5. Stay active and remember that physical activity is important. 6. Practice gratitude and make it a habit to look for and appreciate everything you’re thankful for in life. Wesley Woods of Newnan provides an environment rich with the resources our residents need for aging with optimism. From activities that promote physical fitness and social engagement to nutritious dining and spiritual nourishment, we offer an active, health lifestyle in an elegant Southern setting.

Caregiver of the Month: Marcy Anthony

H

ome Helpers of GA & AL continues to 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.

Thoughts on Caregiving ...

MARCY ANTHONY – “Good help is hard to find

when you really need it. Especially when it comes to your loved ones. Being able to take that load off of someone’s shoulders and gaining their trust to care for their loved one gives me great joy. Some days are harder than others but I really enjoy being a caregiver. Coming home at the end of the day knowing I have helped someone breathe a little easier makes my day!”

Five Foods to Avoid While Pregnant Pregnancy can bring about unusual cravings or complete repulsion for some foods. And, though most meals are considered safe, there are some foods pregnant women should avoid. Oluwaseun Suzanne Cole, MD, Ob/Gyn at Piedmont Physicians Obstetrics and Gynecology in Newnan, shares five foods pregnant women should skip.

1. High-mercury fish. Some fish like tilefish, king mackerel and swordfish have a high content. If pregnant women consume too much mercury, it can accumulate in the bloodstream and damage the baby’s brain and nervous system. Dr. Cole says it’s best to avoid eating high-mercury fish during pregnancy, but women can still enjoy other types of seafood with a lower mercury count. “Shellfish and fish such as salmon or tilapia can be eaten at least two or three times a week,” Dr. Cole says. “These foods are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which helps with the baby’s brain development.” Pregnant women can also eat white albacore tuna, but should limit their consumption to six ounces per week. 2. Caffeine. Avoid caffeinated beverages, like coffee, tea sodas and energy drinks. Caffeinated beverages increase your blood pressure and heart rate, and are not recommended during pregnancy. Caffeine can cross the placenta causing changes in the baby’s sleep patterns and movement. Studies suggest a high exposure to caffeine may increase the risk of miscarriage. “I usually tell my patients they can consume about 150 milligrams of caffeine per day, which is recommended because it’s the amount in one cup of coffee,” Dr. Cole says. 3. Unpasteurized cheese and milk. Eating unpasteurized cheese or drinking raw milk can put pregnant women at risk for listeriosis. Listeriosis is a food-borne illness that can cause mild, flu-like symptoms in healthy adults. Unfortunately, liseteriosis can be devastating for pregnant women, causing miscarriages,

stillbirths and premature deliveries. Soft cheeses like feta, goat cheese, blue cheese and queso fresco are more likely to be made with unpasteurized milk than harder cheeses like parmesan or cheddar. “A lot of soft cheeses that you find in the grocery store are pasteurized and safe to eat,” Dr. Cole says. “You just have to be diligent and read the food labels.” 4. Deli meat and cold cuts. Deli-counter meats and cold cuts also pose the threat of listeriosis. Avoid eating cooked rotisserie chicken and lunchmeat found in the refrigerated case at the deli-meat counter. “If you can’t live without your cold cuts, heat the deli meat until it is steaming before eating it,” advises Dr. Cole. “The heat will kill any bacteria that may be on the meat.” 5. Raw sushi. Raw sushi may contain bacteria that can lead to food poisoning, which can be a serious problem for pregnant women because vomiting and diarrhea can cause dehydration. If you simply must have a sushi roll, opt for fully cooked sushi rolls made with battered and fried crab, shrimp or fish, or consider a veggie roll.

‘Pollinator Gardening: Let’s Invite Some Friends Over for Lunch’ at Coweta Master Gardener Extension Volunteers’ Backyard Association Meeting August 14 Creating habitat for pollinators—the insects and animals essential for fertilizing the plants in our gardens and farms—is becoming more critical as Coweta County becomes more urban. The August gathering of the Coweta Master Gardener Extension Volunteers’ Backyard Association is all about pollinators—what they are and why plants need them.

Visit

Atlanta Vascular Specialists at Plumyumi in Senoia Saturday, August 18, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

In her talk, “Let’s Invite Some Friends Over for Lunch,” guest speaker Carol Hight, chairman of the Georgia Native Plant Society, offers tips on attracting these vitally important pollinators to our yards and gardens at the August meeting of the Coweta County Master Gardeners Backyard Association. The free presentation begins at 7 p.m., Tuesday, Aug. 14, at the UGA Extension – Coweta County, 255 Pine Road, Newnan. Hight of Carrollton, a former teacher, spends her time gardening and supervising work on the Buffalo Creek Nature Trail in Carrollton. For 11 years, Hight was an active member of the Carroll County Master Gardener Extension Volunteers, but now she focuses her energies on her work with the Georgia Native Plant Society. Since joining the Georgia Native Plant Society and the West Georgia chapter of the Native Plant Society, Hight has led rescues of native plants on construction sites. She also undertook the role of chairman of the Buffalo Creek restoration committee, where she schedules workdays, plans projects, and works with volunteers working on the trail. In her spare time, Hight maintains the West Georgia Chapter Facebook page and writes occasional articles for local papers, focusing on native plants and their value.

Faces of Philanthropy What’s raised here, stays here.

Orren L. Jones of Newnan is CCF’s new executive director

Columbus Mayor Teresa Tomlinson to headline 2018 Power of the Purse

The board of directors of the Coweta Community Foundation has announced the selection of Newnan native Orren L. Jones to serve as the organization’s executive director.

Columbus Mayor Teresa Tomlinson will be the speaker for the Coweta Community Foundation’s Fourth Annual Power of the Purse Luncheon on Thursday, October 25, 2018 at The Newnan Centre, 1515 Lower Fayetteville Rd., Newnan. This event will also include the announcement of the 2018 Woman of the Year and a live auction of dozens of designer purses.

Most recently, Jones served as program coordinator with the Newnan office of the Southern Crescent Sexual Assault and Child Advocacy Center, where she advocated for victims of child abuse and sexual assault in Coweta. She holds a master’s degree from the University of West Georgia in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and served with UWG in Quito, Ecuador, as well as at Willowbrooke at Tanner, where she counseled children and adolescents. Jones noted that she is “very passionate about education on trauma and its effects on survivors. I have been blessed to have the opportunity to work closely with many children who were victims of sexual and physical abuse. This work and advocating for victims of abuse is a huge passion of mine.” Jones also holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in studio arts from UWG and mostly works in mixed media. “When I was a little girl, my mom began fostering an adoration of art and culture in me with regular visits to family in New Orleans,” she said. “It’s a bright and colorful city. Somehow those colors always work themselves into my artwork.” For more than a decade, Jones worked with her family’s business, RDJE, Inc., a full-service construction company headquartered in Newnan. “My family has been here for eight generations,” Jones said. “My great-grandfather, grandfather and father all worked very hard to grow and develop the family business, and I often draw from the examples of incredible work ethic that I have seen in them.” She added, “My two nieces and my nephew are my heart.” “I’ve been interested in the nonprofit world since 2012 and have always enjoyed working in it,” Jones said. “When this opportunity presented itself, it also presented a challenge that I had not yet tackled. I’m going to get a chance to be hands-on with the pieces I haven’t yet experienced directly.” Jones said she looks forward to the growth opportunities with the Foundation. “I cherish this community immensely, and being able to serve Coweta in a more extensive way will be an honor. We’re a community with big hearts, and this is a way to give back to the community that has played a huge part in who I am today.”

Q.

Webs are covering my pecan tree in my backyard? What are they and will they kill my tree?

A.

Two types of caterpillars make webs in trees -- the Eastern tent caterpillar makes their webs in the forks of the branches and are more of a problem in the spring, but fall webworms make their webs on the ends of the branches. They are more noticeable and they are the ones you are seeing right now. Fall webworms will feed on the leaves of more than 100 types of trees, but they prefer pecan, black walnut, oak, sweetgum, and other ornamental trees. I see them most often in pecan trees though.

SHOPPER Real Estate

Low Appraisal, Now What?

Jess Barron

One of the most common questions I receive is what happens if we have a low appraisal? Most real estate contracts are contingent upon the property appraising for the sales price. The appraisal is ordered by the lender, but typically paid for by the buyer unless negotiated otherwise. A low appraisal can be common in a hot market where home values are rising faster than the comparable sales can keep up. The good news is that a low appraisal does not mean the deal is over. In fact, we are able to work out most low appraisals. One option you have is to appeal the appraisal. This is when you need to lean on your Realtor to find suitable comparable sales that will support your contract price. Appraisers can make mistakes and overlook sales. Make sure you or your Realtor look at off-market sales and not just transactions on the local MLS. Once you have some transactions that you think will support the value, the buyer’s lender will send these to the appraiser to see if they warrant an adjustment. Unfortunately, appraisal challenges typically do not have a high success rate. Another option is to order a second appraisal. This second appraisal will still need to be approved by the buyer’s lender. All parties must agree to the use of a second appraisal. The cost can be anywhere for a few hundred dollars to well above $1,000 depending on the type of appraisal. A third option, and usually the most successful, is to negotiate with the seller. Typically, a seller will negotiate on a low appraisal. Keep in mind if the seller is paying your closing costs, per the sales contract, they may ask you to a pay a portion or all of your closing costs in return for a price reduction on the low appraisal. A good listing agent will know to ask for this. Accepting a low appraisal can be in the best interest of a seller to avoid the risk of not finding another buyer, going through another negotiation, home inspection, appraisal, etc. In fact, with FHA and VA loans, the low appraisal will actually stay with the house for six months so a seller will be even more motivated to work the negotiation out. The seller could however terminate and wait on a buyer with a conventional or different type of loan. The option of negotiating with the seller is often successful because most sellers realize that an appraiser will likely be using the same comparable sales for any appraisal. As a buyer, you could always terminate the deal and find another home. This is common when the difference between the sales price and the appraisal value is very large. This is where your Realtor can play a valuable role for you. It is important to have an appraisal contingency written in your contract, to protect you from a low appraisal. This will also allow you to receive your earnest money back and exit the deal without penalty. A low appraisal does not mean the deal is over. In fact, they usually work out and to the buyer’s favor. A good Realtor is key in placing language and contingencies in the contract to protect you from a low value. Realtors can also assist you in negotiating with the seller and listing agent to work the deal out for everyone. (Jess Barron is an Associate Broker with Lindseys, Inc. Realtors and President of the NewnanCoweta Board of Realtors.)

Fall Webworms Close-up Credit: UGA Extension, Bugwood.org

Fall Webworms Credit: UGA Extension, Bugwood.org damage or kill the tree over time, but that is rare.

The caterpillars form fine silken webs on the ends of the branches. They will enlarge the webs if they need more leaves. They feed on the leaves in these webs for a couple of weeks before they leave the trees to become pupae. These pupae eventually turn into white moths that will fly away to lay eggs on trees to start another generation of webworms. There can be up to four generations of fall webworms in a year. Healthy trees are able to withstand a great deal of insect damage to their leaves without lasting injury. I would not be concerned about insects feeding on healthy trees unless most of the leaves were gone. If trees are not healthy, then a webworm infestation may

Think about it. It won’t be long before these trees lose their leaves in the fall anyway. This is true of most deciduous trees (trees that lose their leaves in the fall) but not needled, evergreen trees like pines, cedars, junipers and other conifers. Evergreen trees with needles cannot withstand the loss of their leaves and must be better protected against loss of leaves. Fortunately, webworms do not like to attack needled evergreen trees. Since most trees will not die from caterpillar attack, I do not recommend spraying or other methods of control. If you just leave them alone, they will eventually leave or their natural predators (birds, parasitic insects, etc.) will take care of them for you. Fall webworms also have a neat habit that is interesting. When disturbed, all of the caterpillars in a nest will make a distinctive “jerk” in perfect rhythm. Tap branches near their web or make a loud noise by clapping your hands or shouting and you’ll get to see it! They do this to help scare away predators.

She loves writing, speaking, ministering, life coaching and being with friends, Winters and the SONS of Thunder.)

Dance no further than Newnan If you are looking for the perfect ballet shoes, tutus or leisure clothing then look no farther than downtown Newnan and Grit and Grace Studio to Streetwear. Serving Coweta, Fayette, Troup counties and beyond, dancers of every age have merchandise that has been meticulously chosen just for them. Grit and Grace is a one of a kind boutique that will delight all and they bring the best of the best for dancers. Why, even Miss Mississippi made a special trip up to get fitted. They have the most lovely ambiance with a lovely chandelier, beautiful tufted ottomans and a classic yet modern gray and white pallet. Best of all this boutique is filled to the brim with the best of the best of everything for the studio to street wear. It’s the kind of boutique store you will remember for years to come.

Macrame is back once again In the Seventies, macrame was one of the hottest, and as they used to say, grooviest ways to decorate an apartment. It was even worn by both men and women. Well it is back and you can find it right here in clothes to wall hangings. And it is as cool and as hip as ever before. As the old saying goes, everything old becomes new again. Millennials are all about macrame. So this year as students prepare for college I am pretty sure you will see macrame on dorm walls and everywhere else. Not sure you will see macrame as workplace attire unless you work in a more laid back environment but let’s hope not.

That text or call can wait There are certain things in life that can’t wait, like when a baby is ready to be born, holding back a sneeze or when your four-year-old has to go to the bathroom. It is not very easy to wait on those. But texting and talking on the phone while driving has also become something that just can’t wait. It needs to. Our cars have become our offices, texting and driving has become commonplace and plenty of us have said, “give me a second and I will call you when I get in the car.” We have come to believe that call or texting is urgent. That it can’t wait. Yet in that split second there could be a crash and someone could be injured or even killed. Saving lives can’t wait. As of July 1, the Hands Free Law became law and Natalie Bacho of Newnan worked tireless to get that legislation passed. Natalie and the Abby’s Angels Foundation is carrying on the legacy of her daughter, Abby, who was killed by a distracted driver. Recently Natalie said to me, “that we must change the culture.” I agree. We have to change the culture to focus on driving and not worrying about some text. It can wait. Lives can’t.

Coloring books are found to be therapy for adults I never dreamed that one day coloring books for adults would be so popular let alone even exist. We often hear that everyone loves art as children, but as we age we lose our creativity. I believe that is so true and yet so sad. Counselors have seen the benefits of Art Therapy for years. Life is so hectic and drawing is a great way to relax the mind and soul. One of my friends colors to stay focused when she is at meetings or at church. And speaking of church, at our local Barnes & Noble I found a coloring bible. It was so cool. My bibles are all marked up and I adore them, but this takes bibles to a whole new level. What a great way to relax and learn scripture at the same time!

August is Baby Boomers’ Make A Difference Month

Baby Boomers (born 1954 to 1964) are the largest generation, but don’t get too comfortable. Millennials (born 1981 to 1996) are expected to take over that spot in 2019! Millennials already make up the largest workforce, but don’t think Boomers will go quietly! August is Boomers Make a Difference Month. How can you make a difference? Need some suggestions?

Make a difference in your health A doctor once told me that prior to age 65 your health is based on genes, but after age 65, it is lifestyle. So how you live as you age is up to you. Exercise your body, exercise your mind, watch Beth Dow your numbers (weight, blood pressure, cholesterol), manage your stress and be with people. Some of these are harder to achieve than others. Pick just one to start and make sure you set a realistic goal. Losing 25 pounds and running 3 miles a day your first month is not realistic. But not eating bread and walking 20 minutes a day may be very doable for you. Look for ways to be around people. Go to a park and watch children play. Get back in church. Meet people as you walk around a track. And no, you are not too young for the senior center. And what if you are? How often do you get to be the youngest in a group these days? Fight isolation. Isolation is one of the most damaging effects on

your health.

Make a difference in your family That millennial group that is nipping at your heels are the younger movers and shakers of the work force. They are working tons of hours, are financially extended, time starved and sleep deprived. They are also more than likely the parents to your grandchildren. And they could use a hand. They may not ask for help. They may not even recognize that they need help. But chances are, an extra hand with the kids would mean the world to them. And I am of the belief that there is no better gift to a child than a grandparent. Who else in this world is going to give a child 100% of their attention and make them feel as if the world revolves around them? Only a grandparent. Do you need more encouragement? Studies have shown that the more time grandparents spend with grandchildren, the lower their risk for Alzheimer’s. Now that is a win! Make a difference in your community School is starting back up and schools need you! Volunteer to read to a child or help a child with their school work. Coach a recreational soccer or football team. Volunteer at Habitat for Humanity, Meals on Wheels, The Boys and Girls Club or in your church. Spend your Sunday in the nursery or children’s church. Aging doesn’t mean getting old. Aging doesn’t mean you can’t make a difference. We still have so much to give in a world where so much is needed. Choose to Make a Difference!

In The Fast Lane

True story. I was driving through a heavily populated retail area of north Atlanta. On this six-lane roadway, three lanes on each side, I was running behind schedule. As I thought to myself that I needed to shift to the fast lane, I noticed there were about 15 to 20 cars in the far left side. The slow lane, or rather the right lane only had a couple of cars, it was moving much faster, and more easily navigated. It made me realize 2 things: 1. Just because you are in the fast lane doesn’t mean you will get there faster. Often everyone else is on a fast track, too, but that is not an assurance of reaching the target in a competitive manner. 2. Doing what everyone else is doing, including your

competitors, does not establish your uniqueness or brand. You look like and act like all the others. Sometimes it’s better to stay in the right lane. You’ll get there almost as fast (if not faster) and you stand out from the crowd. The right lane has people moving in and out, exiting and entering the roadway. The right lane generally is less stressful. Your operating on traditional methods and without constant jockeying for position. What lane are you in? Are you really in the fast lane, or just in the same lane as everyone else because all of you “think” it is the best and fastest way to get there? Is it time to shift right? Let me know if I can help. Ken Hammock

Lower Fayetteville Road has been closed since June 4 as contractor Lewallen Construction built the LINC trail system section No. 4, which required the installation of a box culvert near the Newnan Centre roundabout. The initial completion date was July 4, but was pushed back until July 20 due to significant weather events and utility relocation issues.

Getting complaints. One individual called his case worker, got a recording that said she would return the call by the end of business. Message also said that if he had not heard back in two business days, he was free to call her supervisor and gave name/number. On the third day of calling and getting the same message, he wasn’t able to leave yet another one because this time the case worker’s voice mailbox was full. So, naturally tried the supervisor. And yes, her voice mailbox was full as well.

Maximize Your Curb Appeal! Updating an exterior paint color can make a huge impact on the perceived value of your home. This home was called "the Brady Bunch" home, with its tired brick, solid front door and dated entry. Painting the brick, updating the doors with something much more modern and changing the porch entry with decorative horizontal wood decor made a home that was difficult to sell much more marketable. Past studies have shown that updating a homes exterior can be one of the best returns on investment.

The Film Fix

… Where film buffs get their fix with Jonathan W. Hickman

H H H H H

Capsule Reviews. (Rating System - A “Fix" is recommended and a “No Fix” isn’t.) Films in Release: Mission: Impossible - Fallout … Fix RATING Ethan Hunt leads the IMF team once again in another dizzying, action-heavy “Impossible” entry. After taking delivery of a self-destructing video, in which we learn that a new villainous organization is in the market for nuclear materials in order to build three bombs, the IMF is assembled to stop them. The stripped down team consists of Luther Stickell (Ving Rhames), Benji Dunn (Simon Pegg), and, of course, Hunt.

to be one, I think, on a dark level. Rather than hearty laughs, the film is an exploration of Callahan’s efforts to find sobriety and himself. And for those with experience with addiction issues, the movie is spot-on and essential. What I like best about “Don’t Worry,” aside from Phoenix’ excellent acting, is the light almost documentary approach that often marks director Van Sant’s best work. The auteur responsible for mainstream pleasers “Good Will Hunting,” “Finding Forrester,” and “Milk” seems more comfortable when he’s not beholden to studio and producer requirements. And for every indulgent “The Sea of Trees” we get an “Elephant.” H H H H H Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again … Fix RATING

When the threesome lose the nuclear material in a deal gone bad, they have to hatch an impossibly complex plan to infiltrate this new doomsday organization that’s hell-bent on exploding nukes to reshape the world. But the US Government isn’t sold on the IMF, and CIA director Erica Sloan (Angela Bassett) embeds the beefy August Walker (Henry Cavill) into the team, over the objections of IMF’s administrator Alan Hunley (Alec Baldwin). There’s a lot of story, back-story, relationships, characters, and entanglements that are thrown at the viewer at a dizzying pace. Credit belongs to writer/ director Christopher McQuarrie, who really goes flat-out here both in writing the spy material and building convincing action sequences. For example, there’s a fight scene in a bathroom that is alone worth your money. It rivals the bathhouse sequence in Cronenberg’s “Eastern Promises,” while reminding us of the tongue-in-cheek fun that pushed Cameron’s “True Lies” gleefully forward. “Mission: Impossible - Fallout” is a propulsive viewing experience, captured at a true break-neck pace, even if the story is impossibly foolish. And the film never really gives you a breather, as the closing sequence is a real stunner. H H H H H Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far on Foot … Fix RATING Joaquin Phoenix is a confusing and compelling screen presence. I like him in almost everything, but “like” is the wrong word. In the right role, he’s perfect. This is why the announcement that he will be playing The Joker in an upcoming comic book adaptation is so interesting. He’s the most unpredictable actor working today, even if his mannerisms and mumbled speech cadence is becoming all too familiar. Phoenix’ prickly on-screen persona is in full display in Gus Van Sant’s “Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot.” In the film, Phoenix plays late cartoonist John Callahan, who after a crippling car accident found his true calling drawing panels for newspapers and magazines exposing a scabrous humor, that was reluctantly embraced by sophisticated readers. The film isn’t a comedy, but it wants

looking for things and lots of people to eat, action superstar Jason Statham dons fins and diving gear. The martial artist known also as the “Stath” should get a chance to punch a shark at some point. Still, even if that never happens, the trailers for “The Meg” tease scary scenes, with “Jaws” like bravado. The man-eating shark looks crazy huge, and the eclectic cast is promising with “The Office’s” Rainn Wilson making an appearance, alongside Chinese star Bingbing Li.

A singalong affair, this one is a must for fans of the first film and of ABBA. “Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again” is a continuation of the bright, cheery jukebox musical that became an international sensation. In this outing, we follow Sophie (Amanda Seyfried) as she opens a hotel on the Greek island to honor her late mother Donna (Meryl Streep). But as Sophie struggles to plan a grand opening party, she learns about her mother’s fun past. Taking place in two time periods, the present and 1979, we vividly see the young Donna (Lily James of “Cinderella” and “Baby Driver”), as she woos the three men that now serve as Sophie’s three “fathers.” It’s all delightful and ridiculous fun, if, also, a bit of a lip-sync affair that masquerades as a musical. Oh, and Cher performs, showing off her ageless looks and diva vocals. H H H H H Woman Walks Ahead … Fix RATING “Woman Walks Ahead” is a potentially delicious combination of talents—actress Jessica Chastain, director Susanna White, and writer Steven Knight. And White and Knight choose to go small with varying degrees of success. The true story involves portrait artist Caroline Weldon (Chastain), as she travels by train from New York to Dakota in the 1890s to paint Sitting Bull (Michael Greyeyes). At first, she has merely artistic goals in mind, but her naivety quickly melts away, and she becomes involved in the Lakota people’s struggle. Weldon thinks that she can use her position to help, but comes to understand that the conflict is multi-layered and beyond her. A real slow burn, performances are uniformly solid if featured in a restrained and tedious package. Some viewers might think this film about a portrait artist and her subject evolves as the paint dries. But there’s something important to the angst on display. The story is not nearly as monotonous as this year’s release of Stanley Tucci’s “Final Portrait,” which I also appreciated. By contrast, the action in “Woman Walks Ahead” is enough to sustain viewer attention without glamorizing the historical events.

Blackklansman… August 10 Spike Lee tackles the improbable true story of Ron Stallworth (John David Washington), a Colorado police officer who manages to infiltrate the Ku Klux Klan. But Stallworth’s got a bit of a problem: he’s black! Of note here is “That 70s Show’s” Topher Grace playing a young David Duke and “Last Jedi” star Adam Driver as a fellow officer who helps Stallworth. “Blackklansman” might be one of the year’s most provocative and entertaining films. H H H H H August 17 Crazy Rich Asians With an almost all-Asian cast, and one terrific trailer, this might turn out to be the biggest romantic comedy of the year. Based on the global best-seller, “Crazy Rich Asians” follows a New York girl named Rachel Chu (“Fresh off the Boat’s” Constance Wu), as she falls for a nice and devastatingly handsome guy from Singapore. But when she visits the homeland to meet his family, Rachel is shocked to learn how crazy rich he really is. Also, in order to marry her love, she’s gotta win over his controlling mother (played by martial artist extraordinaire Michelle Yeoh). The visuals are pure eye-candy, based on the sumptuous trailer. H H H H H August 24 The Happytime Murders “The Happytime Murders” is a muppet movie with an “R” rating. The red band trailer (warning it’s not safe for work) teases a movie about what goes on with the muppets when the kids are not around. Will the lovable puppet mythology survive a stream of raunchy jokes and adult situations? Well, what’s reassuring, in a way, is that this movie is directed by Brian Henson, son of the late muppet creator Jim Henson. The story is about a series of mysterious murders of beloved puppet stars of a 1980s children’s TV show. And to stop the ugly, murder-spree, a disgraced Los Angeles puppet/muppet police officer and his human partner (Melissa McCarthy) must take up the case. Without prejudging this one based on my childhood memories of the characters, I have to admit that the trailer is irreverent fun. H H H H H

One of our newest master gardeners, Mark Hess, has an awesome story and background. We are thrilled to have him as one of our 2018 Master Gardener Extension Volunteers (MGEV). Mark is from Rome, Georgia, and like many of us, he grew up working in his parent’s large garden. Sometimes tending a garden can take a toll on youngsters, but other times it instills a love for nurturing and growing that becomes part of their inner soul. In Mark’s case, it did both! Although he avoided gardening for years, one day Mark read a gardening book and that was all it took. From that moment on, he set out to grow a garden on a farm of his own. It would take many years before his dream would come true. Mark & his wife, Teresa, both graduated as engineers from Georgia Tech, so Mark’s desire to be a master gardener went unfulfilled until he retired and could attend the training class in 2018! His career was worth it though. He worked for Delta and Sabre Consulting, traveling the world and visiting places like Italy, Canada, Pakistan, Egypt, Russia, Korea, China, and Saudi Arabia. Mark’s dream of owning a farm finally became a reality in 2009. He named his farm, Back-2-Nature, and after a lot of hard work, began selling organic vegetables only a year later. Mark believes everyone should have access to high quality organic vegetables and eggs and offers affordable options at his roadside stand on Wednesdays and Saturdays located at 5229 Lower Fayetteville Road. Mark also serves as a board member for 180 Degree Farm, a local, non-profit farm that provides organic food for those suffering from cancer. This man has such a good spirit, and we are so grateful to have him as a part of our MGEV family here in Coweta County.
