hanksgiving is all about families getting together to share our love and memories, as well as acknowledging God as our source of provision. And many of us are accustomed to making long car trips to Grammas this time of year. There is no reason a trip like this shouldn’t be pleasant considering how luxurious, safe and reliable most cars are today. Each person will listen to theater quality music while luxuriating in heated and cooled seats. A little bored? Just flip down the video screen and enjoy your favorite music while “in flight”. Upon arrival we’ll just pull up in the drive, relaxed and “looking like a million dollars”. As a child I can remember a few of those trips, too. I suppose we enjoyed it back then, but it was more like an adventure than a simple car trip. We had relatives in South Georgia, no more than two hundred miles away, but because of our old car and the narrow, bumpy roads, that trip would take about five hours. For the times, our car had a few safety features, too – brakes (when they worked), a horn, and tires which would last at least half the trip without a blow out. And yes, we had a nav system. It was a ball-shaped object on top of the dash – a compass, which would tell us, most of the time, whether we were traveling North or South. Additional detailed results could be obtained by using a paper map of the state - that is until it blew out of the open window and was run over by the 4 cars waiting to pass us! As for music, we sang “Found a Peanut”, or some other “hit” song of the day. And our entertainment was provided by a game we called “the animal game”. We divided into two teams, right side and left side of the hi-way. We counted the four-legged animals on our side and kept score until the end of the trip. Passing a cemetery on your side of the road would wipe out all of your points. (Once my father, having just passed a cemetery on his side of the car, quickly turned around and drove by it on our side. The whole game had to start over with much protest!)

“It’s just a good

thing the hole in the floor was smaller than the baby!

Getting our bathroom breaks coordinated seemed to be the biggest challenge. With five or six in the car, we were stopping a lot. Back then there were no fast food places. One would just stop at a little country gas station and ask for the restroom key, which was usually attached to a 2X4 plank. Some of those bathrooms had not been cleaned in years, if ever, but, back in the car, we enjoyed talking about how bad that one was compared to the last we stopped at. We even rated then on a scale of 1 to 10, most only getting as high as a “two”! In the hot seasons, all the windows would have to be down to prevent our perishing as cars of that era had no AC. Wind, road grit, exhaust fumes from passing cars, and a little grease from changing a tire would leave us hot, dirty and sweaty at the end of the trip, not to mention just plain tired. But when we arrived in town, we would find a “clean” gas station where we could change shirts, wash our face and comb our hair. And a few minutes later, we rolled up to grandmother’s house “looking like a million dollars”! So, next time your family is taking a long, safe, comfortable and entertaining road trip, and someone in the back says “are we there yet?”, just use this generation’s politically correct phrase, “please remain quiet.” Cars and people used to be much less sophisticated. They just told us to “shut up and keep counting those animals”!

oe J Post Script: I can remember one particular trip when the baby’s milk bottle fell through a rusted out hole in the rear floor and onto the hi-way, never to be seen again. The incident was determined my fault, as I was sitting on that side. My mother was mad and the baby was mad. But the tension didn’t last long after my mother decided, “It’s just a good thing the hole in the floor was smaller than the baby”!

Coweta County: Installation of Tornado Sirens continues The first of 16 Tornado Warning Sirens “The sirens are designed to issue torhas been erected at Whitlock Park just off Hwy. 34 East. If all goes as planned, the installation of the 16 sirens should be completed by Thanksgiving, according to Coweta County Emergency Management Director Jay Jones.

nado warnings to people outdoors and in the case of an emergency, they will sound both a siren and a recorded voice message urging people to seek shelter,” Jones said. The new sirens will connect with the existing eight sirens in the City of Newn-

an, giving the area a total of 24 sirens. Jones also urges homeowners to invest in a weather radio or weather radio app for their smartphones for all emergency weather updates. It is important to note that not all sirens will sound each time, only those in the endangered areas.

The Newnan-Coweta Chamber Counting our Blessings This Holiday Season Dean Jackson, 2013 Chamber Board Chair Coweta County Schools What more can be said about the holiday season? We all have much to be joyous about. We celebrate the end of another year, and we are blessed in comparison to much of the rest of the world. Local business is beginning to improve from the Great Recession. Our retail businesses have benefited from the loyalty of our citizens who have chosen to take advantage of the selection, quality of products, and convenience of their location. Coweta County is a special place to live and work, and what better time than this holiday season to think about our good fortune to be here. We live in the best country on the face of the earth. Our good luck to be among the fine people and organizations that make up Coweta should cause us to count our blessings. On behalf of the Newnan-Coweta Chamber, I sincerely wish all of you a happy and safe holiday season.

CAR CARE ESSENTIALS Visibility (part 1 of 2)

The sense of sight is the one we use most often to determine what is going on around us when we drive our car. We rely on it to send us messages that things are OK, or that things are changing, that things are changing faster than you can respond, or that things have already changed and you have not responded. Then Crash! A sight and sound message that can also be painful and expensive. Since we are supposed to be in control of that 4000 pound weapon called a car, we must be able to see what is going on so we can react more quickly than the environment is changing. If we don’t or can’t, that environment will change and we won’t be able to react to it in time to avoid a catastrophe. We have to be able see that environment, see it changing, and decide what to do about those changes. If we can’t see adequately, we can’t make the right decisions. Any time we are not in complete control of that 4000 pound weapon, catastrophe is possible. Every time you are inside your car, operating it, you are look through glass. Glass is 100% transparent. It can also be 100% opaque, or anyplace in between. Since we must be able to adapt quickly to the constantly changing environment outside our car, the more we can see and see clearly, the better we will be able to adapt to change. We control this by assuring that the glass we have to look through provides us with enough visibility to see and react to that everchanging environment. That translates to keeping your glass (windshield, side windows, and rear window) clear enough to provide near 100% transparency. Back in the good old days we could rely on the friendly gas station attendant to check our oil and clean our windshield every time we got gas. Our culture has changed and

it is now our responsibility as the vehicle operator to perform these simple but vital tasks. Every selfservice gas station provides us with the equipment to wash our windshields, free of charge. Every time we pump our own gas, it takes enough time for us to clean the windows while we wait for the gas tank to fill.

Car Care: Oil checks, changes top the list

What is likely the most important of all car-care tips? Changing the oil. Simply put, no single step will help an engine last more than

regular oil and filter changes will. However, nothing will destroy an engine faster than neglecting oil-level checks and fresh oil changes. – Kelley Blue Book /

A windshield covered with dirt, bugs, and streaks on the outside is pretty obvious, but also realize that glass has an inside surface that is subject to visibility impairment as well. Also, understand that just having the swath of clean glass that the windshield wipers provide is usually not good enough. Either use the gear at the gas station or create your own glass cleaning station and carry it with you or keep it at home. Use it to keep all your glass surfaces sparkling clean and your visibility adequate. Is that clear?

City of Newnan’s Christmas Parade Grand Marshals Announced

Andrea Bell-Pitt, Attorney 27 East Broad St., Newnan, GA 30263

770.251.1289 770.251.2629 fax. E-mail:

The City of Newnan’s annual Christmas parade will be held Sunday, December 8th, beginning at 3:00 p.m. The parade begins at Salbide Avenue and Greenville Streets. It’s a “Winter Wonderland” so bring on your snow! The parade will include floats, walking groups, decorated cars and trucks, and marching bands. This year, the City is proud to announce Newnan’s Hometown Heroes Newnan Police and Fire personnel; honoring those that serve the community every day. Newnan Officer Chad Woods has been with the police department for 15 years. Newnan Officer Brent McComas has been with the police department for 11 years. They were both selected because they were able to complete their college degrees, while working full time hours and maintaining their family life and community activities. Newnan Fire Driver Engineer Johnny Minix has been employed with the City of Newnan Fire Department for 36 years. As a driver engineer he has have several responsibilities the most important being, transporting himself and others to and from emergency and non-emergency situations in a safe manner. “In the past 35 years, I’ve been a part of the growth of this City and met many new people and experienced life changing endeavors. I have not only grown from things and the many experiences, but I have been able to touch the lives of others while being touched myself through tragedies of a lost love one going home to a new beginning. One of the most touching moments in my career was in 1981 when I rescued an 8 month old child from an apartment fire where I received the GA Firefighters Association award for valor and the National Heroism award from Firehouse Magazine. Being a Driver Engineer (Sargent) has been life-changing and worth it all. I’ve not only made many friends, but instead, I’ve built a brother and sisterhood that will last a life-time.” Sergeant Vic Kline has been in the fire service since Feb. 2000. He has been employed with the City of Newnan

Fire Dept. from Feb. 2000-present. SGT. Kline has also been certified as a police officer in 2001. But, he has made the fire service his primary career. Sergeant Kline has been proactive in furthering his career in attending many extra training classes, to better his knowledge pertaining to his job as a fire fighter. At the present time he is in EMT school, which will allow him to give better patient care, while waiting on the medics to arrive on the scene. Sergeant Kline has been very dedicated to his job and to the NFD. He made sergeant, March 2005 for his knowledge and faithfulness to the department, as well as to the citizens of the city of Newnan. Ms. Norma Haynes will also be a part of the grand marshals as a special guest of Newnan Police and Fire as she is endearingly known in the community as the ‘Mother of Public Safety. If you are interested in being in the parade, contact Gina Snider or Stacie Frazier at City of Newnan at 770-253-2682 ext 202 or 203 or go to and download an application. The completed application can be faxed to 770-254-2353 or mailed to 25 LaGrange Street, Newnan, GA 30263 along with the $35 entry fee. Applications must be received by November 30th.

With our local teams all at home counting socks as their respective seasons are over, they each have their thoughts and minds on getting ready for the holidays which are coming up. The Coweta Shopper and I would like to say thank you to each of these young men / women and coaches of Fall for all the hard work and dedication they have put in over the last several months. Each Friday night the Vikings, the Cougars, and the Indians were out doing battle with some other team and bringing lots of excitement and emotion to our community. Now that the football season for our local heroes is over,let us pause and think about the season which is upon us. We have the greatest country in the world which we are free to go and do as we please. The United States of America is known for being the most generous and humane country in the world and we are so fortunate to live here. Most of us have family and friends to be thankful for and for of us who don’t, we can lean on each other’s friends and families. If you are feeling down and out because of your situation in life, just put you head on a swivel and keep your eyes open, I can assure you there is someone in worse shape than you are. Do what you can to help that person. Nothing will do more to lift your spirits than helping someone less fortunate than yourself. The people who take time out of their daily lives to serve others always seem to me to be the happiest. Until next week when this column will jump back on our local sports with a vengeance, let me say from the staff of The Coweta Shopper, the staff of to each of you have a safe, happy Thanksgiving filled with family fun and good food. Until then remember that no matter your status in life, the circumstances which surround you now, you have hope because there is a God who loves you.

Most patients’ appointments are local in Coweta County. The training is free.

Join this meaningful program and make someone’s life a little easier. You might find it makes a difference in your own life as well.

According to Dean Jackson, Public Information Officer of the CCSS, “Having NuLink support the Coweta County School System for the third year in a row is incredible. The involvement and interest that NuLink and their customers have shown to better technology across our school system has been wonderful. Thanks to this donation, more technology will be in the hands of more students and teachers. We are grateful for this generous donation and look forward to distributing the funds throughout all schools in Coweta County.” NuLink also presented the check at the Newnan High School versus East Coweta High School football game last Friday night.

It’s here again! Time to make the season merry! One of its greatest pleasures is in the preparation. Home is where our hearts and memories return at the Holiday Season. Now is the time to decorate with lights, color, sparkle, and sound. Green represents eternal life; red says joy and love and warmth; blue denotes spiritual calm; white symbolizes purity and winter’s snow. Gold and silver add sparkle and radiance. Light has long been associated with celebrations and festivals. Bells and special music add to the festive mood. We don’t have to go over the budget to create a festive scene. Christmas tree trimmings can provide free greenery. Search your yard for inconspicuous limbs and foliages that could be cut. Bare branches found could be sprayed white or flocked with ‘snow’. Nandina berries are great for color. Leaves (such as magnolia) can be sprayed silver, gold, bronze, copper or even sprinkled with glitter after spray adhesive. Cranberries or kumquats can fill a clear glass container with or without water. Nuts or cones are best used dry in containers. The nuts and cones are lovely gilded in silver or gold. Artificial fruits found at yard sales or thrift stores can be sprayed with ‘snow’. Real fruits (such as grapes) can be brushed with beaten egg whites and sprinkled with sugar. Make your own sugarplums. Cut your own ribbons from fabric with pinking shears. Plaid seems to be popular this year.

770-616-7025 Fishing In The Fall It was a chilly November evening. My grandfather and I got his tackle box and the purple and red fishing rods and headed down toward the lake. We put the worms on the hooks, then cast out our fishing rods. No bites. We reeled in our fishing rods, and kept the same process going. Time after time we cast our fishing rods out. No bites. It was getting colder by the minute. We finally gave up. Neither one of us caught anything that night, but, it was okay, because last time we fished out there on the lake, I caught three to nothing! That doesn’t matter though, because the most important part is having fun and getting to make a special memory with my special grandfather! By: Sophie (publisher’s granddaughter)

Plant materials need to be hardened (conditioned) before using them. Soak greenery and leaves in a laundry tub or bathtub a few hours to overnight. Nandina berries hold up well! Greenery that holds up well for longer periods of time are: boxwood, camellia, holly, peris, eleagnus, ivy, yew, pine, juniper, cedar, magnolia, aspidistra, osmanthus, acuba, palm, pittosporum, mahonia, rosemary. Hydrangeas should have stem ends dipped in boiling water for 30 seconds and then placed in deep water to their necks. Poinsettias must have their cut stem ends seared in a flame (candle, match, lighter) each time the ends are cut. They can also be cleaned of all dirt and placed in baggies. Plastic fast food containers, food jars, coat hangers, dry cleaning bags, and chicken wire are easy to find and free or inexpensive. Florist wires, wooden picks, waterproof floral tape, hot glue guns and staplers are useful in arranging. Fabric dye is excellent for tinting dried materials or corn husks. Plan your Holiday Theme from the front door, to the entry, to the dining table carried throughout the house. It might be White Christmas, Santa, angels, bells, sleighs, etc. Use restraint in the number of arrangements and decorations for each room. Strive for simplicity and unity. Even some foods could repeat the colors and themes chosen. No money for expensive spices - simmer apple juice on the stove. A bowl of fresh apples or oranges with bits of greenery tucked around is quick, easy, and can be eaten later. Keep candles away from plant materials and other flammable items. Never leave them unattended. Imagination combined with yard and garden gifts will create lasting memories.

Top 10 Tips on Saving Gas, Dollars With gas prices reaching record levels in the recent past, it’s more important than ever to keep a close look on your gas spending. Listed below are 10 things that can assist you in keeping your fuel costs in check. 1. Avoid High Speeds As your speed increases, your aerodynamic drag increases in an exponential fashion. Driving 62 mph vs 75 mph will reduce fuel consumption by about 15%. 2. Do Not Accelerate or Brake Hard By anticipating the traffic and applying slow steady acceleration and braking, fuel economy may increase by as much as 20%. 3. Keep Tires Properly Inflated Keep tire air pressure at the level recommended by your vehicle manufacturer. A single tire under inflated by 2 PSI, increases fuel consumption by 1%. 4. Use A/C Sparingly When the air conditioner is on it puts extra load on the engine forcing more fuel to be used (by about 20%). The defrost position on most vehicles also uses the air conditioner. 5. Keep Windows Closed Windows open, especially at highway speeds, increase drag and result in decreased fuel economy of up to 10%. 6. Service Vehicle on Regular Schedule Proper maintenance avoids poor fuel economy related to dirty air filters, old spark plugs or low fluid levels. 7. Use Cruise Control Maintaining a constant speed over long distances often saves gas. 8. Avoid Heavy Loads Remove the sand bags from your trunk in the spring and pack lightly for long trips. 9. Avoid Long Idles If you anticipate being stopped for more than 1 minute, shut off the car. Restarting the car uses less fuel than letting it idle for this time. 10. Purchase a Fuel Efficient Vehicle When buying a new vehicle examine the vehicle’s rated fuel efficiency. Usually choosing a small vehicle with a manual transmission will provide you with great fuel economy. –
