Meet Earlene Scott Owner of Scott’s Book Store ~ Serving Newnan since 1976 Is it possible for a local independent book seller to survive while competing against two large chain stores, an ailing economy and Internet sales? Scott’s Book Store on the South Court Square in downtown Newnan, is not just surviving but prospering. Why? A lady with a passion for reading and a commitment to her customers.

Earlene Scott has always enjoyed reading books - lots of them. “By the early seventies I had read everything of interest in the library”. Newnan had no book store at that time so she would have to drive to Atlanta to purchase the books she enjoyed reading. (Back then “Amazon” was just a river in South America!) Perhaps now the time was right for a book store in Newnan. In 1976, Earlene purchased a building on the corner of East Broad and Perry Streets which was once her father’s grocery store. Starting with only 600 square feet of retail space, Scott’s Book Store grew to the point that it became necessary to knock out walls to expand, and the small shop eventually doubled in size. “I was having to put books on the floor and we really needed a larger space.” By 1989 a bigger and better Scott’s Book Store moved to its present location on the South Court Square of downtown Newnan. Today’s store is a bright and comfortable shop - a pleasant place to find a good selection of books.

Employees know their regular customers by name and keep files on the books they like in case you need a special gift. And of course, gift wrapping is always free.

When asked how she manages to prosper and compete against the big chain stores, Earlene said two words: “Customer service.” Upon entering Scott’s Book Store you are greeted with a smile and “May I help you find something?” by her friendly staff. You might meet Tena Spier or Bonnie Reed, Sheryl Regan or Dorothy McLean who are there to make your book buying experience pleasant. Robyn Perkins and Miss Earlene’s granddaughter, Danielle Scott, also help when not in school. Employees know their regular customers by name and keep files on the books they like in case you need a special gift. And of course, gift wrapping is always free. If a customer is unable to come into the store, Earlene will meet them at their car with their book and she is happy to deliver to the hospital when needed. She proudly says, “You won’t see the chain book stores doing that!”

Authors seem to like independent book stores and when it is time to schedule a book signing, Scott’s is the place to be in Newnan. Earlene and her staff have hosted many notable writers over the years including Senator Herman Talmadge and Governor Zell Miller, Margaret Anne Barnes, Anne Rivers Siddons and Terry Kay, as well as Lewis Grizzard, Ludlow Porch, David Boyd and Coach Vince Dooley.

So, at the end of the day Earlene Scott knows what it takes to succeed with an independent book store in the face of big competition - she cares a lot about her customers and they keep coming back ... 28 South Court Square, Newnan • 770-253-2960

Vince Dooley recently visited Scott’s Book Store to autograph his most recent book, Vince Dooley’s Garden: The Horticultural Journey of a Football Coach. In this informative and interesting account, Coach Dooley describes his fifteen year curiosity with gardening and the creation of his spectacular home garden in Athens.

Published by Looking Glass Books, Vince Dooley’s Garden, is available at Scott’s Bookstore, South Court Square in downtown Newnan.

*** “There's many a bestseller that could have been prevented by a good teacher.” ~ Flannery O’Connor *** “The covers of this book are too far apart.” ~ Ambrose Bierce *** “From the moment I picked your book up until I laid it down I was convulsed with laughter. Some day I intend reading it.” ~ Groucho Marx *** “Never judge a book by its movie.” ~ J. W. Eagan ***

Vince Dooley autographs his book for UGA fan Natalie A. West of Newnan and local businessman Chip Barron.

“Never lend books, for no one ever returns them.

launches as the sky collapses inward on her own life. She fields the incessant battery from friends and unfamiliar faces alike, who seem to circle like a cloud of angry gnats: “Is it because you married so young? Is it because you made all the money? Is it because you worked too much?” Most poignantly, however, she grapples with the loss of the one who she thought to be the love of her life.

Yet, the book is not a sob story. “Something my divorce brought me,” said Morrison in an interview, “is learning that it’s “I’m done,” declares a bit of everything all at author Stacy Morrison’s once: Things husband.

To Reduce Falls, Take Your Medicine Here’s yet another reason to take all the medication that our doctors prescribe: It can save us from falls. A study was done by a group with a rather interesting name: MOBILIZE Boston, which stands for Balance, Independent Living, Intellect and Zest in the Elderly of Boston. The group exists to study fall risk factors in seniors. More than 600 participants with an average age of 78 were studied after they’d had falls. They were all asked four questions: Do they ever forget? Are they ever careless? Do they ever stop taking medicine when they feel better? Do they ever stop taking medicine if they feel worse? Forty-eight percent were what it called “low adherence,” which means they weren’t taking their prescriptions as instructed. Those seniors had more than one fall per year, a full 50 percent more than the “high adherence” group. Over the course of the study, 376 of the participants reported more than 1,000 falls. The researchers suggested that doctors quiz their senior patients about whether they take all medication as prescribed. While that might be a good idea, I have an idea, too: We need to take responsibility for our health, and that includes taking medications when and as they’re prescribed. Granted, there are some medications with side effects. But a call to the doctor’s office often can result in getting a slightly different medicine. After all, falls are one of the quickest ways we can lose our independence. Here are some more steps you can take to limit the

No medicines kill the norovirus. Replacing fluid lost through diarrhea is the most important aspect of treatment. A homemade replacement solution is a mixture of half a teaspoon of salt, half a teaspoon of baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) and four tablespoons of sugar in a quart (about one liter) of water. Commercial fluid replacements also are available, and drinks like Gatorade are suitable for infections that are not prostrating. Bismuth subsalicylate (Pepto-Bismol) controls diarrhea. Immunity to norovirus is not long-lasting, so second infections occur. Many bacterial illnesses, like Salmonella, also lead to diarrhea, but that’s a subject for another day. *** DEAR DR. DONOHUE: How can I get rid of bags under my eyes? — B.L.

number of falls: • Check your environment. Are there wrinkled throw rugs on your floors? Is the stair-rail sturdy? • Are your shoes comfortable, with a non-slip sole? • Do you need to update your eyeglass prescription? • Do you need handrails installed? Help is available if you ask for it.

TO YOUR GOOD HEALTH By Paul G. Donohue, M.D. Stomach Flu Isn’t the Flu DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I have read your column for many years, but I haven’t seen anything about stomach flu. Will you write about it? Someone in my family of seven gets it every year, even in the summer. Does the flu shot protect you from it? — H.H. ANSWER: At one time, I conducted a crusade to erase the term “stomach (or intestinal) flu” from the English language. I didn’t get very far, so I gave up on it. Real flu — influenza — is a respiratory illness, not an intestinal illness. The flu shot provides protection only against true flu, not “stomach” flu. Four viruses are the usual culprits of stomach flu, and, for adults, the one that leads the pack is norovirus. Vomiting, diarrhea, fever and often headache are the main symptoms. It comes on suddenly, about one or two days after the virus enters the body. The sickness lasts only one to three days. A slight increase in number of cases occurs in the winter, but it comes in all seasons. Norovirus infections usually spare infants. Older people have the worst symptoms, and they are the ones who can die from an infection, but death is rare. This is the illness that sweeps through cruise ships and can infect an entire nursing home. It’s also common in mil-

ANSWER: In younger years, people don’t have bags under their eyes because a strong meshwork of tissue holds fat in place. With age, that meshwork loses strength, and fat pushes its way outward in the area under the eyes. That bulging fat is bags. I wish I had a simple answer for you. The only way to get rid of those bags is surgical removal. *** DEAR DR. DONOHUE: Since I was 12, I have played tennis. I still do, four times a week, and I am 77. I have had to cut the time I play tennis in half because I’m getting short of breath. What kind of lung exercises can I do? — R.K. ANSWER: Forget lung exercises. See your doctor, and you should do that as soon as you can. Becoming breathless doing things you used to do without any trouble can be a sign of many serious illnesses. *** Dr. Donohue regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible.

• “I try to keep a clean plastic no-spill cup in the car for each of my kids at all times. They don’t always remember to bring a drink, and we can fill them at water fountains when we unexpectedly visit the park or other fun places.” — K.R. in Nevada • “I purchased a small misting spray bottle from the travel-items section of my local drugstore. I filled it with rubbing alcohol, and keep it on my desk at work. I use a tissue and the alcohol to clean my phone and keyboard regularly. I believe this has kept me from getting many illnesses this past season.” — F.D. in North Carolina • Keep your outdoor hardwood furniture (teak, acacia, etc.) looking its best by cleaning and oiling it once per year. Liberally apply oil made for wood with a clean rag, then use another rag to wipe off any excess. It’s a simple thing that can make a big difference. • “When I replaced the towel rack in our bathroom, my husband decided to keep the old one for his shop. He put several ‘S’ hooks on it, and stores all manner of tools and supplies on it.” — M.W. in Michigan • “Save the plastic cups from pudding and yogurt.

COLLECTING By Larry Cox Hummel Plate Q: I have a M.J. Hummel plate, “Apple Tree Boy and Girl — Little Companions,” that was issued in 1989. How much could I get for it? — Ellaline, Ormond Beach, Fla. A: Your plate was introduced by the Danbury Mint and is part of a series, all originally available by mail order for $32.45 each. The complete set sold for $389.40, which included a display rack. According to Luckey’s Hummel Figurines & Plates: Identification and Price Guide by Carl F. Luckey and updated by Dean A. Genth (Krause, $27.95), your plate has a current value of about $25. Special issue plates are generally extremely difficult to sell on the secondary market. *** Q: While cleaning out my late in-laws’ home, I discovered a picture of William McKinley, the 25th president of the United States. In addition to an image of McKinley, Ida Saxton McKinley and Nancy Allison McKinley, there are pictures of his homes in Niles, Ohio, and Canton, Ohio. We would like to know its value. — Carol, Willmar, Minn.

County and the presidential history of William McKinley. You can contact them about your picture c/o The William McKinley Museum, 800 McKinley Monument Drive, NW, Canton, OH 44708. McKinley, the last American Civil War veteran to be elected U.S. president, was assassinated in 1901 by anarchist Leon Czolgosz. During the aftermath that followed, photos and souvenirs of the late president flooded the U.S. marketplace, and I suspect your picture is a product of that emotional period. *** Q: I have four California Raisins figurines made in 1987, but I am not sure what they are or what they might be worth. — Julie, Coolidge, Ariz.

2010 VEGETABLE MARKET AVAILABLE FOR LOCAL GARDENERS Local gardeners can once again sell their surplus home-grown vegetables this summer at the Expo Center off Temple Avenue in Newnan. The Expo center is adjacent to the old Coweta County Fairgrounds. The market will run through-out the summer. Operating hours are: Monday 9:00AM until 1:00PM. Wednesday 9:00AM until 1:00PM Saturday 9:00AM until 1:00PM Sellers are required to be residents of Coweta County or one of a limited number of surrounding counties, and have grown their own produce. There will be a $3.00 seller's fee per sell day to cover market expenses. A market manager will be at the market during operating hours to issue selling permits and furnish copies of the rules and regulations. Residents of Coweta and the surrounding counties are invited to take advantage of the market's fresh, home-grown vegetables.

PAW’S CORNER By Sam Mazzotta How to Avoid Dog Bites

The U.S. Postal Service has some tips to follow to minimize the risk of being bitten: • Don’t run past a dog. The dog’s natural instinct is to chase and catch prey. • If a dog threatens you, don’t scream. Avoid eye contact. Try to remain motionless until the dog leaves, then back away slowly until the dog is out of sight. • Don’t approach a strange dog, especially one that’s tethered or confined. • While letter carriers are discouraged from petting animals, people who choose to pet dogs should always let a dog see and sniff them before petting the animal. • If you believe a dog is about to attack you, try to place something between yourself and the dog, such as a backpack or a bicycle. You can find more information about preventing dog bites at http://www.avma.org/public_health/dogbite /default.asp Send your pet questions and tips to ask@ pawscorner.com, or write to Paw’s Corner, c/o King Features Weekly Service, P.O.

NASCAR THIS WEEK By Monte Dutton Reutimann: Better Late Than Never CONCORD, N.C. — Regardless of how the rest of the season is going, David Reutimann can count on Charlotte Motor Speedway for respite. Reutimann’s only Sprint Cup victory to date occurred in the track’s 2009 Coca-Cola 600. A year after that stirring upset, Reutimann matched his best finish of the current season by finishing fifth in NASCAR’s longest race.

At 40, Reutimann, from Zephyrhills, Fla., is only At age 40, David Reutimann got 112 races into his Cup a late start on his Sprint Cup career. He never made career, with his first full season it to NASCAR’s premier in 2008. (John Clark/NASCAR series full-time until This Week photo) 2008, though he competed in 26 races in ‘07. “A guy coming right out of high school and going Cup racing doesn’t appreciate it, maybe, as much as a guy like me who’s done it a little differently,” he said. “Nothing wrong with that. “Trust me. I wish I would’ve been 18 years old, coming out of high school, and had an opportunity to do Cup racing. I would’ve loved to have done that. It just wasn’t in the cards for me at the time. If you were 18 or 20 years old, or even mid-20s, you were too young. They wanted guys who were more seasoned because they didn’t tear up as many cars.”

Circulation as of May 2010

It was Jeff Gordon who changed all that. Gordon, of course, has won four championships and 82 races. He’s younger than Reutimann.

“Gordon shows up, and all the rules changed,” said Reutimann. “Everybody wanted a young guy because he (Gordon) was producing on the race track. You’ve got a guy like Mark Martin. I’m not saying I’m a Mark Martin, but when you’re out there racing that guy and he’s kicking butt, it makes you feel really good. “It makes you feel like you maybe have a little bit of longevity. You never know. In the end, if you run well on the race track, they’ll probably keep you around no matter how old you get.” Is there still room for a late bloomer? Why, sure. “Forty is the new 30, anyway,” said Reutimann. “That’s what I’m going with.”
