August 6th … First Day of School

Steve Horton, founder and owner of The Coweta County Shopper 19892008, died recently in Kentucky. Our thoughts are with Darlene, Brian, Larry, Nick and their families. This month The Shopper is beginning its 25th year in business. We’d like to remember Steve and thank all the former employees and advertisers for 24 great years!

The Coweta Shopper

25

There’s been innumerable changes since Steve and Darlene Horton moved to Newnan in 1989 and started a small direct mail advertising business in their Smokey Road home. There’s been more than half a dozen locations, many sales people and office personnel throughout the years. There were a lot of all night work sessions with a couple of Mac Plus computers with 9 inch monochrome screens, cut and paste with hot wax, long road trips delivering page layouts to the press in South Georgia, waiting on press run and the long ride back to the Newnan post office. It started as a small family run business with sons Brian and Larry putting in time over the years. Steve, a former pharmaceutical sales rep, was the top salesman for a number of years. Scott Shefelton was salesman, ad builder and office manager for 20+ years. His brother in law Rusty is still selling ads - 24+ years. Steve retired in 2009 and son Larry ran things for a while. Joe Williams bought The Shopper in 2010, changed the name to The Coweta Shopper and added some local content with The Armchair Gardener, What’s In Your Garage, Employee Spotlights, and interesting articles from time to time on locals. In Memory of Stephen S. Horton 1946-2013

We look forward to continuing and improving The Shopper ~ founded by Steve Horton in 1989.

A

t an earlier time in the history of Coweta County, downtown Newnan was the center of commerce – the hub of activity. We actually called it “up town”, as downtown was reserved for places like New York or Atlanta. So, within about a two block area of the court house, one could buy a car, go bowling, see a movie, eat, buy medicine or clothing or hardware, cash a check, catch a Greyhound bus out of town, or spend the night in our county jail. It’s still a nice area, although in a different way, and I hope it will remain healthy for many more years. One of my more vivid memories of the “square” is of Alexander’s Barber Shop located on the south of, and facing, the courthouse. My father would take me there when we both needed a haircut and I would go back, on and off, through my teenage years. There were three huge (to me) metal and leather chairs that would swivel, recline or go up and down. Two of those chairs were reserved for owners Robert Alexander and his father. The third was for an additional employee. This was not a beauty parlor and they didn’t offer to design or style your hair, and they didn’t take appointments. Men walked in, sat down, and discussed fishing or hunting or politics while waiting for their regular barber. Their menu include a shave, haircut, your favorite hair tonic, and a shoeshine. And they would sometimes give you that special, ten-second massage of your shoulders and neck with a vibrating machine attached to the top of their hand. You probably couldn’t have spent more than two or three dollars for the whole shebang! All cuts were about the same – little or no hair around the ears and a little bit longer on top. There were three large ceiling fans to condition the space, a framed print of dogs playing poker, and a very ornate metal cash register on a stand. But it was that curtain at the rear of this small shop which surely led to some dark, unknown place that fueled my 5 year old imagination. What could be back there, and why would the barbers sometimes go in and quickly close the curtain behind them? Perhaps there was a dead body or two, or a robber hiding in wait. I was too afraid to ask! Things are different now, and that’s OK. Folks don’t really need to “go up town” to do their shopping. The bowling alley is gone and so is the bus station. But thanks to Main Street Newnan, the square area is once again a popular destination, although for different reasons. The big box stores and strip malls are much needed, but I hope we can continue to preserve the architecture and culture that once made Newnan’s court square the hub of commerce for Coweta County.

Post Script: As adults, we have a different perspective of earlier events. For over 25 years I was a neighbor of Robert Alexander and saw him walking almost every day. He was the husband of the talented artist, Harriet Alexander who we fondly remember. And after 60 years, I have solved the mystery of “The curtain”. It separated a room which contained a bathroom, mop bucket and broom, and a couple of storage shelves. No bank robbers. No dead bodies. I sure hope I will never have to allow my age to retard my vivid imagination.

My Terminal Illness

W

hen I was seven years old I convinced myself that I had leukemia. I watched a special hour-long episode of Different Strokes where a seemingly healthy child about my age was diagnosed with the disease. That was all it took – if he could catch it for no apparent reason, then I too was a likely candidate.

by the fingernail lodged in my throat. For a moment I forgot all about my leukemia until I looked up and saw the concern on his face.

The next day at school I was very quiet in class and kept my head down during story time. I refused to participate in gym class for fear that my condition would worsen. I told the teachers I was sick, but did not reveal the complexity of my condition. One of the teachers sent me to the principal’s office for proof of my sickness. When the thermometer read normal I shrugged my shoulders, but continued to cry. The disease was not registering in my system yet I thought. The principal made me eat a bowl of Corn Flakes, refusing to believe that I was not hungry.

“I’m here to talk about your feelings, and why you have been blue lately,” he said. I kept looking at him skeptically, while rubbing at my throat to coax the fingernail down. He tilted his head and raised his eyebrows giving the signature look of an adult who expects an answer.

“I guess you’re wondering why you’re here,” he said. I looked at him blankly, offering no opinions even though his mission was clear to me.

“There’s a fingernail stuck in my throat,” I said as I watched through my overgrown bangs for his reaction and possible medical advice. Surely any obstruction to my breathing could not be good for my leukemia.

This continued for several days and I felt that it was a matter of time before my parents or one of the teachers would announce the news of my discovered disease. Suddenly, while sitting cross-legged in reading group with my head in my hands, it happened. “Kelli Bowman,” the principal announced from the entry of our classroom, “You need to come to the office. There’s someone here to see you.”

He leaned back in his chair and tapped his pen on the desk. “That must be very painful,” he said with no real trace of concern. No advice, no phone call to his office to report this new development, just an ordinary reaction as if I simply showed him a paper cut. That was my first indication that this was not really a doctor. A real doctor would be concerned. This man clearly had no idea about breathing This was it; someone was here to break obstructions or stomach lacerations caused the news to me, probably the doctor himself by the swallowing of a fingernail. I decided after reviewing my physical file. “We didn’t to get to the heart of the matter. notice it at first,” he would say, “but your body “Do you know Dr. Pelton? He’s my Doctor,” is laden with leukemia.” I stood up slowly, I said. with my head hung and walked toward the “No, honey, I don’t know him, I’m not that office alongside the principal. She tried to kind of a Doctor. I’m a Psychologist,” he said comfort me, telling me I was not in trouble, drawing the word out slowly, punctuating but I knew the truth, I could feel the pity every syllable for me to hear. and it annoyed me coming from a woman Aha! I knew it; he was not a real who pushes Corn Flakes on terminally ill Doctor! children. I chewed nervously at my fingernails as we entered the office. A man in a suit sat behind the desk usually occupied by the office secretary. “Hi Kelli,” he said in a pleasant voice reserved for such occasions as the unveiling of your terminal illness. “I’m Dr. Cooper,” he announced. As he said this I sucked in air and swallowed a fingernail that I had been chewing. I coughed with such force he leaned over the desk and patted me on the back. After gaining my composure, I slumped into the seat across from him. My head was spinning; I remained occupied

Back To School Specials

We talked for a while about my family, friends, schoolwork, all the things that typically cause a child to withdraw and cry in class for four days straight. I never once mentioned my leukemia because I figured out by then I must not be sick in that way. I was just crazy I guess. What a relief; I wasn’t going to die an untimely death after all, unless, of course, I suffered internal bleeding from the fingernail I had swallowed. I think I may have seen something like that on a special hour-long episode of The Facts of Life.

Spending UP,

Savings Down Consumers are feeling more confident about spending. So says the most recent report on consumer credit by the Federal Reserve. Jobs rates are up more than expected. Pay rates are rising. Home prices are going up. In May, the average household mortgage debt was 8.67 percent, a small increase over December 2012. Consumer debt, however, which includes credit cards, was 5.07 percent, higher than it’s been since the end of 2010. A Gallup poll in June of the average daily money habits of consumers across the country showed that the daily spending amount of $90 is higher than it’s been since 2008. These figures don’t include mortgage, vehicle or regular household bills -- only purchases at a store, restaurant or online. Mint.com, an online money site that collects information from consumers, says that since 2009, monthly household expenses have gone up from $3,870 to $4,200. Included in that is a rise in gas expenses from $110 to $198 per month. In spite of extra expenses, restaurant spending has risen from $192 per month to $212. Given the differing information (the more you look, the more varied the information you’ll find) one item from the Federal Reserve report stands out: Consumer spending is up ... but

rate of saving is down.

The bottom line is that the experts can’t agree on the state of the economy, and therefore don’t know what will happen in the future.

“The weight is over!” PhySlim Weight Loss and Wellness is Newnan’s newest clinic dedicated to improving the well-being of their patients and community, working with patients on an individual level to develop a customized weigh loss program. “Everyone is different and you can’t develop a cookie cutter attitude to a lifestyle change”, says Dr. Rick Spurlock, medical director of Physlim. His research in this field has shown that with the right diet, exercise and weight-loss medication long term, significant weight loss can be achieved. Dr. Spurlock completed medical school at the University of Miami and spent his residency years at Emory University, with extensive training at Grady. He has traveled to Haiti over 20 times to help deliver medical and surgical care to the rural poor, as international medicine has been one of his lifelong passions. Dr. Spurlock is a member of the American Society of Bariatric Physicians and soon to be board certified in Obesity Medicine. PhySlim is open Monday 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Tuesday through Thursday until 6 p.m. For information or appointment, call 770-683-slim (7546) or visit www.physlim.com.

In spite of the appearance of more jobs and income, the old rules from the past few years still apply: • •

Save, save, save. Put money away. Pay extra on credit cards and get them paid off. Once paid off, don’t use the cards unless you find a sale for something you need and can pay off the balance in three months. Be sure the interest you pay doesn’t come to more than you’d save by not buying on sale. If you’re approved for a home mortgage, don’t spend up to the limit you can borrow. Save the extra money for repairs or maintenance. If you’d like to buy a new vehicle, consider whether yours will last one more year. Keep the maintenance up on it. Shop for sales on tires, and clip coupons for oil changes. Don’t own too many gadgets, and if you buy, don’t get the best. One step down is often good enough, including refurbished. Get a few dollars on buy-back programs when you do upgrade.

Masterworks Chorale Seeking New Members for Fall Season By Joan Doggrell

Masterworks Chorale’s 2013 fall rehearsal schedule begins the second week of August. If you’d like to join this distinguished group, audition opportunities are available through the month of July and the first week of August. Call Artistic Director Kathy Bizarth at 770-846-8278 or contact her at kbizarth@numail.org for an appointment.

Meet G. T. Amell The old west just got a little closer to Coweta County last year when G.T. Amell rode into town – straight from Tombstone, AZ. Since his wife, Regina, has family in this area, they have chosen Newnan for their retirement. And we’re sure glad to have them here. Tombstone is a very small town but a hugely popular tourist destination. Dressing in period attire, G.T. and Regina mingled with, and greeted visitors, provided photo ops and welcomed them to their little town. And this provided a perfect opportunity to share their faith in God through a tract ministry to folks from many parts of the world. G.T. seems to be the “authority” when it comes to western movies. He can tell you what star was in which movie while adding some little-known facts to the conversation. “A good western must include the “Five S’s”, says G.T. “Scenery, sheriff, stagecoach, sweetheart and saloon.” But his real “God given” talent as an artist, combined with his love of the old west, has led to the creation of a group of exquisite graphite portraits featuring some of the most famous Cowboy movie stars ever. It starts with Buck Jones and goes through Tom Selleck and Sam Elliott with the likes of Randolph Scott, Gary Cooper, John Wayne and Glenn Ford. His portraits are available for purchase. For information on how to get in touch with Mr. Amell, you can email us here at info@thecowetashopper.com. So, if you see a “proper” western gentleman sporting a great looking mustache, and has an attractive lady on his arm, it’s probably G.T. and Regina Amell. And let’s make them feel welcome to our great community!

At its first fall concert, Masterworks will premiere a work written by Andrew Smith, who won a young composers competition this past fall. Smith is a student at Columbus State University and a former Newnan High School student. The concert will feature the Masterworks’ scholarship winner as well – a tradition for the first concert of the season. In March of 2014, Masterworks will perform a commissioned piece by Dr. John Ratledge to celebrate its 10th anniversary. Throughout the season, the Centre Masterworks Youth Chorale (CMYC), under the direction of Millie Lanier Turek, will join Masterworks in several concerts as the young singers prepare for their role as ambassadors from the city of Newnan to Scotland. Since its founding in 2003, Masterworks has presented at least three performances annually. One performance is always a master work that challenges and inspires singers and audiences alike. Masterworks’ mission is to foster and share the art of choral music and to serve the community through the pursuit of choral excellence in choral repertoire and performance. Made up of residents 18 years and older of Coweta County and surrounding areas, the Chorale has furthered the art of singing exceptional choral music through rehearsal and performance of standard literature of quality and interest. It has reached audiences of several hundreds and is thriving through involvement with the community and schools of the area. The chorus also has been in workshop with internationally known choral conductors, most recently Dr. Tim Seelig of Dallas, Texas, and Joseph Martin, who is also a renowned composer. In March of last year, Composer Martin personally conducted Masterworks in a concert of his own works.

Encouraging Words from Oprah Winfrey

Q

“With every experience, you alone are painting your own canvas, thought by thought, choice by choice.”

Q

“I know for sure that what we dwell on is who we become.”

Q “Every time you state what you want or believe, you’re the first to hear it. It’s a message to both you and others about what your think is possible. Don’t put a ceiling on yourself.”

Q “Be thankful for what you have and you’ll end up with more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have you will never, ever have enough.”

Q “Though I am grateful for the blessings of wealth, it hasn’t changed who I am. My feet are still on the ground. I’m just wearing better shoes!”

Q “Remember, the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you the power to get wealth.” ~ Deuteronomy 8:19

Also realize that the feeling you get from the surface you are driving on is mostly a function of your only contact with that surface – your tires! Some of the tire characteristics that affect ride quality are the composition of the rubber, the width and height of the tire, the tread pattern, and tread depth, and, of course, the pressure of the air inside the tires. Tire air pressure is the topic of our discussion this time around.

ual. Just look at the label on the driver’s door jam or door post of your vehicle. There, by law, is a listing of what air pressure is recommended for the front and rear tires of your vehicle. Like so many other things in life, too much is not good and too little is not good either. The amount listed on the label is just right. The inflation pressure that is molded into the sidewall of the tire is the maximum the tire will safely hold. It is not the recommended pressure. Any given tire of a specific size can be used on many different vehicles so the pressure referenced on the tire is not specific to any particular car. The pressures on the door jamb label are specific to your car regardless of what size, style, and brand of tire you are using. As the operator and controller of that 4000 pound weapon on wheels, it is your responsibility to maintain your vehicle in safe operating condition. Tire pressures are one of the easiest safety settings to understand and maintain.

In order to drive within the engineered parameters of your vehicle and experience the ride characteristics you expect from it, you need to insure that the air pressure in all the tires is set at what the people who designed the car, the tires, and the roads have specified. The good news is that it is simpler than ever to do this. You don’t even have to wade through that confusing Owner’s Man-

Door jamb label showing tire pressures

September 21 …

~

When considering the safe and comfortable operation of your car or truck, one of the strongest influences is the outside environment in which you are driving. A major variable in that environment is the contact your vehicle has with the road. If you have ever driven on ice, through water, or in sand or mud, you know what I am talking about. The lower amount of traction those surfaces provide drastically effects the handling, safety, and comfort of your ride. Critical aspects of driving, such as accelerating, turning, riding comfortably or uncomfortably and most importantly stopping, all depend on what is called the tire contact patch or the amount and the shape – the “footprint” - of tire rubber that is in contact with the road surface.

The Armchair Gardener “Something Old, Some New,

Something Blue” Demotoi, Lanarth, Mariesii ~ is that French? Yes, it surely is ~ French Hydrangea that is. Hydrangea is one of our most beloved old Southern summer shrubs. These deciduous shrubs are kin in the Hydrangeaceae family. There are many types of hydrangeas. Here are a few: “Annabelle” - H. arborescens is a very hardy selection with white blooms turning pale green later. French hydrangea ~ H. macrophylla has countless selections including “Nikko Blue” which has consistently reliable blue blooms. Other French or Bigleaf hydrangeas bloom white, pink, purple, or red. Some types can be encouraged to blue color by adding aluminum sulfate or pink color by adding lime to the soil. It is the soil pH (acid or alkaline) that determines the color of those types. “Snowflake” - H. quercifolia, or Oakleaf Hydrangea, has white blooms that turn pinkish in the Fall. Its leaves turn a handsome bronze and reddish color in Fall. “Tardiva” - H. paniculata - also known as the Pee Gee hydrangea blooms later and is a good doer. Now there are numerous new choices - such as “Endless Summer” - that are repeat bloomers. They bloom on old and new wood. Hydrangeas are easy care choices for the garden or in large containers. They prefer good, welldrained soil and regular water along with some shade in the afternoon. Prune French hydrangeas by the end of July to avoid losing next year’s blooms. Hydrangea arborescens blooms on new growth, so prune in the dormant stage. The repeat blooming types can be pruned anytime. To dry, cut hydrangeas just after they change color and begin to feel paper-like. Use water about half way up stems and allow it to evaporate (can add fabric dye).

Gary Sikes Folks we are just about to crank it up for the Fall campaign of high school football. For what is now the 2nd year in a row, the GHSA (Georgia High School Association) has a 5 day mandated acclimation period. In my opinion this is a good thing to get the young men used to being out in the heat, working and sweating. However the one other thing that would help more than anything would be for the parents to do like our’s did. Get outside and play. The folks who are my age or even close will know what I am talking about. Even if we had known about or had such play toys as X-box and TV video games, I promise you, we would not be sitting in the house glued to the television playing when the sun was up. We were outside either doing chores or playing until it got dark. We were acclimated at most anytime and we drank water and lots of it. I bet our local coaches wish the same were true today. I know EC head coach Clint Wade and NHS coach Mike McDonald do. They are having to just kinda stand around and watch while the players get used to the sunshine. And trying to figure out what to expect from their respective teams this Fall. Rumors on the street are that the Cougars are expecting big things from a new wide receiver who is out his Sr. Yr. for his first attempt at football. At 6’6” he has a distinct advantage on most defensive backs already. Plus he has 2nd year starter Bailey Bryant to toss the ball to him. Bryant has a great arm and is very mobile. He is tall and reads a defense really well. Defense wise, they have a few holes to fill. Especially at the free safety position, with Trey Matthews slated to be the starting safety for the Georgia Dawgs. Over in the Eastern Side, head man Clint Wade says they will (better be) be better and a much improved
