ell, the county fair is in town this week, and depending on how you look at it, you can’t wait to get there, or you may just want to leave town for the week. I hope you go and have a great time! There are rides which are appropriate for small children as well as those “scary” things that turn you upside down and sideways fifty feet off the ground. Exhibits include cows, sheep, chickens, ducks and other “rare” species not normally seen by city dwellers. There are tractors, automobiles, remote control airplanes, fire trucks and other items of interest on display throughout the grounds. And don’t forget those Teddy Bears and prizes which are so “easy” to win! If you’re young, you will probably go and enjoy the heck out of it. If you’re old, perhaps you’ll go, too, even if just to walk around and rekindle some old memories. The Kiwanis club has sponsored the local fair for as long as I can remember – I believe it started in 1948. “In 1971”, says Allyn Bell, “We made $5,000 which we gave to local Coweta County charities.” In 1988, when I was Kiwanis president, we were able to give away about $32,000, then an unheard of amount for a civic club to give. Between forty and fifty thousand people may have visited the fair this year, spending at least twenty dollars each. “That’s a million dollars!” Although a lot of this money leaves town with the carnival, Kiwanis will make a sizable sum, most of which is put right back into the good works of our community. It all started with the Newnan Kiwanis Club, however, there are several Kiwanis Clubs now in our Coweta County which share in the work and the giving. It takes a lot of volunteer help to serve that many folks! But the young people, who are the ones really enjoying the fair, are not really thinking of the logistics of operation, or the money it gives to the community. They’re there just to have a great time with their friends and family. As I write this article, I can still remember as a child the smell of the cotton candy, the sounds of the rides, the lights and music, and the “screams of joy” coming from exited people on exhilarating rides. It was a big deal in those times and I looked forward to it every year. Later, I was able to enjoy it with my own children, who now take their children. I suppose the fun could go on for generations. Although there are always some downsides to any event with that many people, our fair is a safe, well run event which provides a great deal of joy, as well as funding many of the charitable organizations here – at least $1,000,000.00 just in the past ten years. “Wow!” So, if you haven’t tried it, do so this year. If you have, you know you’ll be continuing a tradition of having fun while helping fund worthy projects in our community

Joe Postscript: As always, I invite your comments and suggestions to help us make The

Coweta Shopper an interesting and effective advertising medium.

How To Choose A Paint Color And Love It Want to liven up a space with color, but your just a little bit afraid to chose one? Don’t worry, below are some great tips from the color pros. • Always test out a paint color on a piece of poster board or directly on the wall before you make a large paint purchase. Chose a place by the windows, next to the door trim and in every corner of the room and see how it looks. Paint color looks different in larger samples than on the little chip from the paint store and in different light during the day. • If in doubt go up to the less saturated color on the paint chip. It may be the best way to get used to color on your walls. • Use other objects other than paint chips to guide you. Perhaps a piece of china or art will inspire a color choice. I use fabric as a starting point. It’s a lot easier to find a paint that will go with my fabric, rug or linens than finding things to go with my paint color. Many pros suggest looking into your closet for inspiration … look at your accessories. They usually have the most color and you already know that you like them. • Not ready to commit to an entire room of color? Then accessorize with color. Bring in rugs, pillows, art and fabrics that will spread color around the room. Paint a piece of furniture to help break up the matchy-matchy wood furniture suite that you already have. You can go bold or subtle like white, cream or black. • Start small and use color in your powder room or hallways to get you used to seeing color on your walls. These are not usually large areas and are easy enough to change if you don’t like. My bet is that you’ll love it! For more tips on choosing a paint color, contact....

Employee Spotlight – Ebony Harris Arby’s on Bullsboro in Newnan has great food and excellent service. I enjoy having a quick lunch there a few times a month because the staff seem so friendly. There is one team member, however, who displays that “something special” that makes me want to come back again and again. She is Ebony Harris, and has been with Arby’s for about 14 months. “I try my best to maintain a good attitude, and I think maybe my smile is one of my best qualities”, she says. And she’s right! Ebony’s attitude is a good example of Tony D’Angelo’s quote, “Wherever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine”. Ebony grew up in Michigan but has lived in Coweta County for about twentyfive years. She has 4 children and one grandchild.

It Matters Everything on our planet is interconnected and delicately balanced. Our world is constantly being changed, for better or worse, by the decisions we make individually and collectively. Those choices affect the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the food we eat; as well as all of the plants, animals, and insects. What we do really does matter now and in the future. Water pollution, soil contamination, air pollution, and climate changes are altering our environment. Many important habitats have been lost or changed. Pesticides, fertilizers, animal waste runoff, industrial discharges, polluted storm water runoff and chemicals (such as synthetic estrogen, etc.) have harmed our environment. Animals and insects have experienced altered reproductive systems, birth defects, compromised immune systems, genetic changes and many deaths. Humans are also adversely affected by these problems. Insect control, crop pollination, food sources, hunting and fishing, and drinking water are jeopardized. Our own immune systems, genetics, reproductive systems and our health are at risk. Two examples of our interconnectedness are bees and frogs. Lately, both have been dying at alarming rates. Bees pollinate more than 50% of our crops in Georgia. Fruitbearing trees, berry-producing plants, and most vegetables need bees for pollination. In recent years, the United States has lost more than 50% of its honeybee colonies to disease, pollution, pesticides, and loss of habitat. That’s not all. Frog populations, world-wide, have been rapidly declining. Frogs eat vast amounts of insects. They are important to scientific research and the development of new medical treatments for humans. An amphibian fungus (which needs both water and a host) is one of the major causes of these losses. Fish, snakes, birds, and insects; as well as water eco-systems are suffering from the loss of the tadpoles, frogs and amphibians. In Georgia, Gopher frogs have lost 97% of their habitat which also adversely affects the Gopher Tortoise (which shares its burrows). The Atlanta Botanical Garden is helping these and some 30 total species of amphibians by providing breeding and habitat. The Nature Conservancy has provided 2,000 acres of protected habitat. More help is needed. What can we do? We can conserve, repurpose, recycle, and think “Green”. We can recognize the importance of our National and State parks as protected habitats. It is vital that families and individuals can continue to be able to afford large tracts of land for farms and ranches. These large tracts help provide wildlife refuges, protected wildlife corridors, and protected wetlands for habitat. Conservation easements on private lands are one way to do this. These large undeveloped areas also help to clean the air and recharge groundwater. We can teach future generations to avoid the mistakes we have made. We can vote for elected officials who are sensitive to and responsive to these issues. One environmental advocate’s perspective on these issues is Erin Brockovich’s newest project “Last Call at the Oasis”.

Wild Animals Pose Threat to Pets DEAR PAW’S CORNER: A number of cats in our area disappeared this spring and summer, and I noticed the rabbits that used to plague our garden don’t come as frequently. A neighbor told me he saw a coyote crossing the street just before dawn recently, and I suspect it is the cause of many of these disappearances. Please warn your readers they need to protect their pets as wild animals are encroaching on well-populated neighborhoods. -Pat C., Weston, Mass. DEAR PAT: That’s a very good point! As wild creatures lose more and more of their natural habitats, they are being seen much more frequently in the suburbs and even in urban areas. This goes beyond nuisance animals like raccoons and skunks: Black bears frequently wander into back yards in central Florida, and residents in urban Allston, Mass., are sometimes confronted by wild turkeys foraging along city streets. And coyotes and cougars have been reported in suburban neighborhoods in many parts of the United States.

Wild animals present a next to Thomas Crossroads Elementary lot of risk to pets (as well as humans). Besides the threat of contracting rabies or other diseases, some predators find smaller pets to be easy, tasty prey. Keep cats and small dogs indoors at night. If wild animals have been reported in your area, don’t let your pet out unaccompanied or off a leash, even during the day when no danger is apparent. Keep your pet’s vaccinations up to date. If you have pets, like rabbits, that are kept outside, reinforce and strengthen protective fencing around their cages.

Encouraging Words

“This is the beginning of a new day. You have been given this day to use as you will. You can waste it or use it for good. What you do today is important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it. When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever. In its place is something you have left behind … let it be something good.” ~ Unknown


“If you don’t go after what you want, you’ll never have it. If you don’t ask, the answer is always no. If you don’t step forward, you’re always in the same place.” ~ Nora Roberts


“Success will never be a big step in the future, success is a small step taken just now.” ~ J. Martensson


“Do what you can, where you are, with what you have.” ~ Theodore Roosevelt

Volunteers for Affinis Hospice Lic# 240927

Volunteers play a vital role in the support of our patients and their families. Support is given in many ways – sitting at bedside to relieve an exhausted caregiver, performing small tasks in the patient’s home, reading to a patient, or spending time with a patient and their family as a “friendly visitor”. No special skills are needed but a passion to serve others is desired.

Cancer Wellness at Piedmont is now available in Newnan. Cancer Wellness offers free, comprehensive services and programs to anyone affected by cancer at any phase in his or her cancer journey, regardless of whether or not they are a Piedmont patient. Below you’ll find the class schedule for Cancer Wellness at Piedmont Newnan Hospital as well as some information about the new patient navigator Stephanie Martin, RN, whose primary responsibility will be to guide cancer patients through their continuum of care.

Volunteers! How Do I Get Started? You may call the Volunteer Coordinator at (770) 254-8612 with any questions or to request an application. Volunteers may choose to spend time with patients and their families within their own towns and communities and/or anywhere within the 12 counties where we are licensed.

7345 Red Oak Rd., Union City • (770) 254-8612

All you need is a caring heart! Your involvement will communicate value to these patients and their families as you provide companionship and a brief respite for caregivers. You will not need to provide any medical or physical care to the patient, just a caring heart and a listening ear. You can provide caregiver relief for 2-4 hours each week to allow the caregiver to enjoy time out of the home. You can use your gifts and talents to impact someone in their last stages of life in many ways, and we will make sure you are welltrained, equipped, and supported. Please call Lynn Yeager 404-832-4232 with interest or questions.

When Is It Needed?

At Home Assistants,, 770-304-8034

Caring for an aging parent or relative is one of the most stressful and challenging roles an individual will assume says gerontologist and elder care advisor Ester Koch. One out of four US workers is currently responsible for caring for an aging parent and are forced to choose between doing their family duty or doing their job. In addition persons reaching the age 65 have an average life expectancy of another 19 years for females and 17 years for males. With this said many of us (25%) must make the decision of when is homecare needed? Getting a “care assessment” is the best way to determine when an elder needs home care services. The following are some examples of a care assessment:

Mental Health Considerations Assessing the mental health of the elderly can be challenging. The line between memory problems that naturally occur with aging and memory problems that occur in early stages of dementia and or Alzheimer’s can be hard to distinguish. If an elder:

Signs of depression are also difficult to sort out: n Low energy


n Loss of appetite Activities of Daily Living (ADL) These are the basic tasks involved in personal care and household work. How would you rate your loved one’s ability to: n Do housework, laundry, shopping and cooking n Maintain personal care, such as bathing, dressing and using the toilet

n Manage medical appointments and medications n Handle personal finances and legal issues

n Lack of interest in others These maybe signs of cognitive impairment Nutrition Considerations Healthy eating is a challenge for all of us, and elders may have additional issues that make healthy eating even harder; poor health, difficulty shopping or cooking, food insecurity (hoarding), loneliness or depression. Nutrition can be a major issue for elders:

Physical Health Considerations

n Is the elder getting the right kinds and amount of

Planning for home care also involves an assessment of health issues affecting both physical and mental health.

n Is the elder capable of shopping for the right

n Mobility: the ability to safely move around one’s own home and neighborhood is often compromised with advanced age

n Vision: vision impairment is common among the elderly and often leads to reduced social interaction and quality of life, depression and injuries from falls. In many cases elders do not report their vision problems, vision screening is recommended

food to meet daily health requirements foods and preparing them

n Is the elder eating the food he or she prepares of that is prepared for him or her

These are just a few examples of a Care Assessment. If you have any questions related to elder care please contact At Home Assistants. We provide personal care assistance, companion and sitter services. We are licensed by the State of Georgia, and are insured and bonded.

By Michael Cushing, MD Football is one of the most popular sports and leads all other sports in the number of injuries sustained. An estimated 920,000 people are treated annually in hospitals, doctor’s offices and clinics for football related injuries. Sprains and strains account for 30% of injuries, broken bones followed with 22%. While only 1% of injuries were concussions, this type of injury can Dr. Mike Cushing received his be serious. Repeat injuries, particularly to the undergraduate degree from In- head, are the most serious threat to life. diana University. He is a graduate of the Medical College of Georgia and did his residency at Georgia Baptist Hospital (now Atlanta Medical Center). Dr. Cushing did a shoulder/sports fellowship at Hughston Clinic and practices at Georgia Bone and Joint.

Common Injuries to Football Players m Traumatic: Knee injuries are most common, especially those to the anterior and posterior cruciate ligaments (ACL/PCL) and to the meniscus. Shoulder injuries are also quite common. This can involve injuries to the labrum as seen in shoulder dislocations, or involve injuries to the AC joint (AC dislocations). Ankle sprains are common as well.

m Concussions: A concussion is a change in mental state due to a traumatic impact. The signs of a concussion include headache (most common), dizziness, nausea, loss of balance, numbness and tingling and blurry vision. The athlete should return to play only when clearance is granted by a physician. m Heat Injuries: These usually occur in August due to the high temps and humidity. Excessive sweating depletes the body of salt and water. Early symptoms include painful cramping of major muscle groups, profuse sweating and weakness. Heat exhaustion can progress to heat stroke when the body’s temperature regulation fails. The affected individual becomes lethargic, confused, the skin stops sweating. This is life threatening and emergency medical attention is necessary. Tips for players to reduce football related injuries


1. Perform proper warm up and cool down routines 2. Hydrate adequately, stay active during summer break to prepare to return to sports in the fall



3. Choose equipment carefully, always be sure it is properly fitted and wear all equipment, even when practicing


4. Make sure playing surface is free of debris, rocks, holes etc.



Preventing Football Injuries

5. Limit blocking and tackling drills during practice, always tackle with head up and do not lead with your helmet.
