here’s been a lot of talk in the news recently about the forthcoming end of the world. According to Mr. Harold Camping, The “Rapture” will take place on May 21st, sometime around 6:00 PM eastern time. If you happen to be reading this article, one of three things has taken place. (1) Mr. Camping has been ill-advised or has miscalculated the date, whereas our daily lives will continue as usual. (2) He is correct and is now, along with many others, entering the Gates of Heaven while being congratulated on his precise mathematical skills. (3) The train has left the station without you, as your name was not in The Book. You didn’t have a “Ticket” did you?
But if Mr. Camping was not correct, I might end up being in the dark instead of being in “The Light”.
Prior to “The Day”, I was thinking what I may want to do to prepare – just in case I was found “absent” around here. I could write the head of the Internal Revenue Service and state that any further forms or notices will be marked “Return to Sender”. Then I realized that, although the IRS would probably be doing business as usual, there may not be a sufficient number of employees at the Post Office to get my letter out. I also thought I might not pay my current electric bill. But if Mr. Camping was not correct, I might end up being in the dark instead of being in “The Light”. And, inasmuch as my wife and family will hopefully be on The Train with me, I may just let my life insurance lapse. But again, if Camping is correct, it would be just my luck to step out in front of an oncoming bus, leaving my wife in a state of penury! One other thing; I’ll have a lot of explaining to convey to my wife’s mother concerning all of those “Mother-n-law” jokes I thought were so funny at the time. (I still think some of them were pretty good!) I have done some pretty stupid things along the way and I continue to make mistakes daily. I am in no way qualified to judge others as to their religious views and practices or of their actions, whether heinous or virtuous. It is my personal opinion, however, that, in spite of all my wrongdoings, I have my “Ticket” when the train does leave the station. I did absolutely nothing to earn it, and all the good deeds and money in the world couldn’t purchase it. I believed in my heart, and confessed with my mouth that Jesus, The Christ, died on the Cross as a final and ultimate sacrifice for my sins and yours. So, although I may be close to the top of your list of bad guys, my “Ticket” is marked “Paid in Full”. Perhaps we will be on that train together when it leaves the station, whether it be May 21st, October 21st or a thousand years from now. As always, I invite your comments and suggestions to help us make The Coweta Shopper an interesting and effective advertising medium.

Piedmont Healthcare Selected For Georgia Free Clinic Network Partnership Award Atlanta, GA (June 1, 2011)—Piedmont Healthcare has been selected as the recipient of the 2011 Georgia Free Clinic Network Partnership Award. Piedmont’s network of community hospitals in North Georgia have been instrumental in providing lab services, administrative services and financial support to charitable clinics. “This award honors businesses or corporations that have contributed significantly to either Georgia Free Clinic Network or individual clinics,” said Donna Looper, executive director of the Georgia Free Clinic Network. “Piedmont’s support on behalf of the charity clinic movement in Georgia and long-standing commitment to quality healthcare have distinguished Piedmont in a field of high quality nominees.” The Georgia Free Clinic Network connects over 100 non-profit medical and dental clinics across Georgia serving the over 1.7 million uninsured. Charitable clinics are the unseen fabric of the health care safety net in communities, especially in rural areas, serving homeless individuals and those with chronic and life-threatening illnesses such as cancer, hypertension, and diabetes. “Piedmont Healthcare has been providing a vital service to the communities we serve for over a century,” said R. Timothy Stack, president and CEO of Piedmont Healthcare. “As the demand for care grows, it is important that we each do our part to help create healthier communities. By supporting Georgia Free Clinic Network efforts to fulfill primary care needs, we help keep healthcare costs low for everyone and ultimately create stronger and more prosperous communities.” Piedmont Healthcare supports the Good Samaritan Health Center in Atlanta, Ga; the Fayette CARE Clinic, in Fayetteville, Ga.; the new Coweta Samaritan Clinic in Newnan, Ga. and the Good Samaritan Health and Wellness Center in Jasper, Ga.

Senoia’s history for many years. Janet Baggarly has operated the Senoia Buggy Shop Museum in Senoia since her husband Walter passed away. The buggy shop museum was the only museum in town until the Senoia Area Historical Society opened a museum in their meeting house on Couch Street a few months ago. Nancy Roy and Joanne Utt worked diligently to ensure that the Senoia historic district was placed on the National Register of Historic Places. Retired school teacher Mary Ann Reese was a voice coach for ‘A Christmas Memory’ and gave tips to actors based on her recollections of Senoia’s history. Totsie McKnight worked to help grow the Senoia Library and shares stories from her childhood at Lake Raymond for the book. Martha Gill Clark wrote the history of Senoia Baptist Church where she was a member for over 50 years.” The book details the life of beloved school teacher Coral Moses Hand, depicts residents on bicycles when they were “one size fits all,” shares the portrait of Starr’s Mill owner Allen Jones as well as publisher of Senoia’s newspaper, The Enterprise Gazette and describes life with photos of Atlanta Cracker and New York Yankee professional ballplayer Marvin Duke of Senoia. Books are $15.00 each and benefit the SAHS through June 30th and are available at Scott’s Book Store in Newnan, Gail’s Antiques and The Welcome Center in Senoia, outlying independent bookstores and additional places of business in Senoia.

Quick and Easy Re-Design Ideas Are you ready to start a design project, but overwhelmed by all of the new, expensive choices for interior decor? We all get a little tired of our homes and it’s tempting to throw everything out and start all over, but who can afford to do that? You can spiff up your place with a few quick and easy ideas - some are even FREE! Edit and de-clutter - Organization is Free! Put away the stacks of magazines, unread books and children’s school paper. Remove everything from your kitchen countertops and put them in an “easy to get to” box. Then bring the items out as you use them. You may be surprised at what you can do without, that you didn’t even notice was taking up space before.
Coweta County ~ One Of America’s Best Affordable Places To Live Coweta County has been selected as one of America’s best affordable places to live for 2011. Businessweek magazine chose one county per state and Coweta was selected for Georgia – here is their description on how they made the selection. Bloomberg Rankings analyzed data on more than 3,000 counties nationwide to select the best affordable place in each state. Metrics such as income, housing expenditure, commute time, educational attainment, ethnic diversity, air quality, unemployment, poverty, and crime were evaluated. The resulting ranking aims not to single out communities with high-end homes or luxurious living, but to focus instead on desirable places that offer a good quality of life and are affordable to people who earn the area’s median income. “This recognition just confirms what we have known about Coweta for a long time – it’s a great place to be for affordability and a terrific quality of life. From economic activity, to a low tax rate, to a broad and expanding education and healthcare system, to our proximity to Atlanta and our rural side – we have a lot to offer.” Here’s the link to the general story http://images.businessweek.com/slideshows/20110525/ america-s-best-affordable-places-2011/ Here’s the link to the page on Coweta http://images.businessweek.com/slideshows/20110525/ america-s-best-affordable-places-2011/slides/11
Move Your Art Around. Free! Shake things up and move the art over your fireplace to your bedroom. Create a family photo wall in your hallway. Put a favorite piece in your master bath. We spend a lot of time in there getting ready for work and bed. Why not have something beautiful in the bath? Lighten Up - Just like we change our clothes from winter to summer, we can do the same for our homes. Change the throw pillows to a brighter, fresher color. Remove the heavy throw and change the rug from a heavy winter look to a light airy jute or sisal. Re-arrange Your Furniture. Free! Place your sofa on an angle. Create a reading nook in your bedroom. A dresser can be used in a foyer, dining room or family room. They don’t always have to be in a bedroom. Bring In Some Fresh Flowers. You can use Free flowers from your yard or ask your neighbor for a few cuttings of their beautiful hydrangea bush. Don’t feel like you have to have a fancy container for them. Use one of the ones that you’ve been saving under the kitchen sink, a cute jelly jar or float a large blossom in a bowl of water. Rotate Your Family Photos. Free! Remove all the family photos and replace with only 1/2 of the collection. Then every 6 months rotate them for the ones that have been in storage. Let your table tops breath for the summer. Paint. One of the cheapest, (although not always the easiest), ways to give a room a facelift is to change the color with paint. I say not the easiest because, the preping and clean up are always the most dreaded part of painting. However, it is great at the end of the project to look back and enjoy your new look. It’s instant gratification! For more information about Re-designing or Staging your space, Nan Johnston, Southern Staging & Redesign www.southern-staging.com

CAR SHOWS “The Car Guys” 10th Anniversary Car Show Series ~ Saturday, June 11th, United Way in Coweta County is proud to announce a partnership with “The Car Guys” 10th Anniversary Car Show Series which benefits local charities. “The Car Guys”, Scott Sargeant and Charlie Filkins, popular local radio, television and event hosts, have spent the past ten years raising over $100,000 for local charities throughout the Southern Crescent. 2011 marks the tenth anniversary hosting their “Car Show Series” which benefits numerous local charities with a percentage of the proceeds and raises awareness of the charities’ mission to the entire community. Held the second Saturday of each month through October, each Car Show welcomes over 150 restored cars on display ranging from the 1910’s to the 1980’s. Located in the Junction Lanes Bowling Center parking lot and adjacent to Carmike theaters, the venue offers family fun for all with food vendors, music by WC Sounds,
Atlanta, GA May 25, 2011-“Thank you so much Chevrolet and Southtowne of Newnan, GA!!! I am shocked and amazed and cannot wait to get my new 2011 Cruze!!!” These are the words that Kegan Isaac, winner of a 2011 Chevy Cruze, posted on the “Chevy Drive for Perfection” Facebook fanpage. It doesn’t take very much imagination to understand what young Kegan from The Heritage School is feeling after winning a new Chevrolet Cruze from the Southtowne General Motors Superstore in Newnan. However, it’s Kegan who should be thanking himself for his dedication towards achieving a very difficult goal. The Chevy Drive for Perfection is a program developed by Chevrolet and funded by local Chevrolet Dealerships which rewards high school seniors at the participating schools who achieve a 98% attendance or better in their senior year. Prizes included Wiis, flat screen TVs, iPods and gift certificates … and, of course, a 2011 Chevy Cruze for one lucky winner. In addition to the prizes, Southtowne General Motors Superstore and other local dealers raised and donated over $35,000 in cash to local area high schools. $7,500 went to 4 Coweta High Schools who snared over 20% of the money out of the 60 High Schools participating in the program. This extra money will go a long way in procuring additional textbooks, supplies and equipment for the schools. However, this was more than just free gifts and prizes for these dedicated young adults. Don’t think for a moment that any of the participants involved took the event for granted. Sure they had the chance to walk away with some really great prizes and prize money, but the true meaning of the event was clearly not lost on one winner who also posted to the “Chevy Drive for Perfection” fan page saying: “Chevy Drive for Perfection isn’t about giving away cars and fancy prizes, it’s about helping kids achieve their future goals by keeping them in school and helping them strive for high attendance. Chevy, thank you again for what you are doing for education and the futures of children all across America. This program has truly been a blessing and impacted my life in ways you could never imagine!” For more information on “Chevy Drive For Perfection” find their Facebook Fan page at www.facebook.com/Chevy-Drive-for-Perfection.

Bill Stemberger If you or a family member has been injured on the job, then chances are you would qualify for benefits under the Georgia Workers’ Compensation Statute. This statute was developed to insure that employees who are injured or disabled on the job would receive medical treatment and medical rehabilitation. The injured employee is also eligible for a portion of weekly wages. The employee who claims the benefits under the workers’ compensation laws cannot sue the employer for the injuries. The public policy behind workers’ compensation envisions a bargain between employers and an employee in which the worker gives up the right to sue the employer in exchange for a guarantee of workers’ compensation benefits. Every employer regularly employing three or more persons shall provide workers’ compensation insurance coverage. In most instances independent contractors are not considered employees, and thus do not count toward the number of employees required for workers’ compensation insurance. Of utmost importance to the employer when considering works’ compensation benefits is whether the incident occurred within the scope of the employee’s employment. Under the Georgia Workers’s Compensation Statute the employee is required to seek treatment within a designated list of doctors called a Panel of Physicians. This list must consist of a minimum of six doctors. The employee may choose any one of the six. The panel must include one orthopedic physician.

Employees injured on the job are entitled to weekly income benefits if they are unable to work for more than seven days. They also receive two-thirds of their average weekly wage, but no more than $500.00 per week for any accident. If an employee dies on the job it is usually assumed the death is work-related. The employees’ dependents or beneficiaries are generally entitled to a death benefit. Though workers’ compensation can be a benefit to the employee, the rules and regulations at times require the involvement of an attorney. If you or any family member is injured on the job, or have questions or concerns, please give us a call and we will be glad to help.

More Cat Condos for Coweta More cat condos are coming to Coweta County Animal Control. Thanks to the generosity of the Holland Ware Charitable Foundation another set of cat condos will be added to the facility at Selt Road. Cat condos sound a little luxurious, but they are more functional than fluff. The condos allow the cats to be separated with walls instead of open wire and to have individual ventilation of their cages (condos.) This significantly reduces the transmission of disease in the cat population at Animal Control. The Holland Ware Charitable Foundation has donated more than $140,000 to Coweta County Animal Control in the last year for various projects, including cat condos and the construction of a new intake facility, which is in the planning phase now.

Front Door Produce
SPICY FRUIT Salsa Summer Salsa When tomatoes and peppers are ripe and plentiful, folks will wonder what to do with all that produce. Salsa is one good option. How hot the salsa is depends on the kind of peppers that are used. Peppers are rated according to their hotness on a scale called the Scoville Organoleptic Test. The hottest variety is habanero, with a rating of 300,000 Scoville Units. The habanero resembles an orange lantern. Typically, the hotter peppers are smaller varieties (1-3 inches at maturity) and are colored ‘green-turning-red.’ When working with hot peppers, be sure to wear gloves to prevent burns. Just cutting a habanero open, for example, can make a person’s eyes water! Milder peppers tend to be larger (4-10 inches) and are ‘yellow-turning-red.’ Examples of milder peppers include Bell peppers and Sweet Banana peppers, which are rated at 0 Scoville Units, and so are very mild. More in the mid-range would be jalapeño peppers. They are rated at 5,000 Scoville Units and are tapered green or red chilies. Adjust the spiciness of the salsa by selecting the type of pepper added to the mix. For a very mild salsa, use milder peppers. For a very hot salsa, use a greater proportion of hotter peppers to milder ones. Regardless of the product’s spiciness, don’t just add more peppers to make it hotter. The total amount of peppers should be the amount recommended in the procedure. The proportions are calculated out so that the recipe will be safely preserved. It also is a good idea to try out the peppers you plan to use in your salsa by trying half of a hot pepper first, stirring the salsa, letting it sit for a few minutes and tasting for heat. See if the temperature is what you expect and what you prefer. It’s easier to adjust the mix of peppers in the salsa to gradually make it a little hotter by adding more peppers than it is to deal with an excessively hot and spicy salsa after it’s prepared. If someone finds your salsa a bit too hot, you might try serving it with some sour cream or salty chips to help calm that spicy flavor. This recipe for Spicy Fruit Salsa combines hot peppers and juicy summer fruits. It’s perfect for a snack

Plants For Arranging For those who enjoy bringing in plant materials to arrange, the biggest challenge is restraint. So many plants – so little space, or time, or help. A beautiful landscape design may not include all the plants you would like to have for flower arranging. All the plants you want for arranging could end up a mish-mash of one of everything. I leave the resolution of this dilemma to the landscape design experts. There are some particular plants that are especially and often useful in floral designs. Trees that have wonderful lines, flowers, and / or leaves are: magnolia grandiflora, winged elm, flowering crab apple, willow, dogwood, purple plum, Japanese maple, deodar cedar, blue spruce, cedar, pine, sweet gum, and Harry Lauder’s Walking Stick. Shrubs that are excellent are: boxwood, leucothoe, elaeagnus, yew, juniper, nandina, gardenia, camellia, trifoliate orange, hollies, pyracantha, osmanthus, aucuba, ruscus, sasanqua, Anise, hydrangeas, forsythia, spiraea, roses, variegated pittosporum, edgeworthia, rhododendron, azaleas, clethra, barberries, mahonia, viburnum, mountain laurel, andromeda, photinia, weigela, and cotoneaster. Many of these shrubs are also available in variegated forms and in slightly differing varieties. There are a number of good ground covers that add much to arrangements. Among them are: ivy, ajuga, pachysandra, liriope, vinca major and vinca minor variegata. Other good and useful plants to include in floral designs are: bamboo, chrysanthemums, rosemary, garlic, lamb’s ears, fatsia, yucca, iris (blooms an foliage), aspidistra, various grasses such as miscanthus, pampas, or arundo donax variegata, ferns, hostas, sedum, hellebore, peony. Vines to add to designs are wisteria, carolina jasmine, confederate jasmine, crossvine, trumpet vine, and clematis. Berries to include could be holly, pyracantha, callicarpa, nandina, mahonia, viburnum, rose hips. Nuts, fruits, and vegetables create exciting deigns.

What’s In Your Garage? Meet Allyn Bell … and his passion for old Fords Back in the days of the “big three” auto makers, boys who liked cars and trucks had to “choose sides”. You either chose General Motors (Chevy or Pontiac), Fords (includings Mercury) or Chrysler products which would probably include Dodge and Plymouth. These choices would sometimes be passed from father to son and may last a lifetime. Allyn Bell’s dad was a “Ford guy” and must have passed that gene on to his son. Allyn not only likes old Fords, but has a passion for the 1940 model. “I always hoped to own a 1940 Ford”, says Allyn, “and in 1957, my dream came true when I purchased a two-door sedan from a man in Senoia”. He’s the third owner, and the car looks like it could be sitting in an automobile showroom. It’s beautiful! Car “Buffs”, being a different breed, are never satisfied with just one “Toy”, so in the late 90’s, Allyn and his wife Brenda began traveling around the country looking for another 40 Ford - this time a coupe. Located in Norfold, Va, they found what seemed to be the car they wanted, a 1940 “Deluxe Coupe” in a beautiful maroon color. Brenda purchased this car as a “gift for her husband”, and they brought it home. (Are you wives listening carefully?) Inasmuch as no self-respecting “Ford Man” can own only two old cars, they continued in search of just “one more”. After “debating” about the price for about a month, Allyn purchased a beautiful green 1940 pick-up truck he found in London, Kentucky. “It’s a favorite of my grand children”, he says. “They really like riding in the back”. ( I think it’s my favorite, too!) You would think he would hardly have time for anything else but maintaining these cars, but Allyn seems to have unlimited energy and a contageous “Zest for Life”. He’s an avid gardener and enjoys sharing his home grown veggies with friends and neighbors. He has served on the Moreland council several times and was Mayor in 2000. As this article is being written, Allen and some friends are participating in the Bicycle Ride across Georgia (BRAG), this time from Atlanta to Savannah. Four hundred miles on a bike may just be a “walk in the park” for Allyn. In 2000, he and his friend, the late Bob Lore, “peddled” from California to Georgia! (Makes me want to sit down just thinking about it.) Also, Brenda and Allyn enjoy traveling and have made over 20 trips to Europe and about ten to Hawaii. Having made a career in the Coweta education system, “Mr. Bell” has been a teacher, guidance counselor, Pupil Services Director and principal. He and Brenda have lived in Moreland for 45 years and have been a asset to Coweta County through church and community service. Allyn Bell - educator, adventurer, car guy, traveler, community leader. But he’s also a good husband and father and a friend to many.
Happy Father’s Day!
Father’s Day Humor Compiled by Amy Zerello from readersdigest.com Thanks for the Soda, Pop! Before I took the old family car to college, my father loaded the trunk with soft-drink bottles filled with oil, coolant and transmission fluid. Sure enough, my car overheated. Scolding myself for not listening to my father’s instructions, I looked at the engine and saw how well he knew me. The oil cap was labeled Dr Pepper, the transmission stick, Coke, and the empty coolant container, Diet Pepsi. I finished the trip safely. – Submitted by Charlotte G. Alexander *** Say What, Dad? Our Gen-X daughter, Cristie, made my husband a Father’s Day card entitled “Things My Dad Would Never Say.” Such as: “Can you turn up that music?” “Go ahead and take my truck. Here’s 50 bucks for gas.” “I LOVE your tattoo. We should both get new ones.” “Here, you take the remote.” – Submitted by Deanna Schneider *** What a Card! Father’s Day was near when I brought my three-year-old son, Tyler, to the card store. Inside, I showed him the cards for dads and told him to pick one. When I looked back, Tyler was picking up one card after another, opening them up and quickly shoving them back into slots, every which way. “Tyler, what are you doing?” I asked. “Haven’t you found a nice card for Daddy yet?” “No,” he replied. “I’m looking for one with money in it.” – Submitted by Terri Cook *** Pop Vs. Pup While flying from Denver to Kansas City, Kansas, my mother was sitting across the aisle from a woman and her eight-year-old son. Mom couldn’t help laughing as they neared their destination and she heard the mother say to the boy, “Now remember — run to Dad first, then the dog.” – Submitted by Karla J. Kasper *** Paternal Payback On the day I received my learner’s permit, my father agreed to take me out for a driving lesson. With a big grin, he hopped in behind the driver’s seat. “Why aren’t you sitting up front on the passenger’s side?” I asked. “Kirsten, I’ve been waiting for this ever since you were a little girl,” Dad replied. “Now it’s my turn to sit back here and kick the seat.” – Submitted by Kirsten Wiley
