So how many love New Year’s resolutions? I mean the intent is nice. “This year I promise to eat better/stop smoking/lose weight/be nicer/smile more/cut out (fill in the blank)/ obey my parents/not yell at my kids … and so on. And we make it a day or week or month and then something comes up and we don’t “do” or “go” one day and then it becomes two and soon we are just kicking and berating ourselves for failing yet again. But there’s always next year … Yeah. If you pay attention, many “resolutions” are just promises to ourselves to “do better.” In other words, trying to turn a negative into a positive. But what if we, to borrow an old phrase of mine, Just Flip The Dog on these resolutions? How about focusing more on the positives and try to eliminate the negatives all together. And instead of making all these “new” resolutions, we look back instead. What were some big positives in your life last year? Focus on growing those more. What were the big negatives in your life. Focus on eliminating them in the next year. I’m not saying it’s easy. Change rarely is. A good example is a horrible boss. The only real way to change him/ her, barring a lightning bolt from the Almighty, may be a job change. That’s your call. But the important thing to remember in a situation like that is to make it YOUR call. Do you have friends that bring you down? That are too negative for you? Eliminate them. Okay, not literally but spend less and less time with them. Were there people in your life that were full of encouragement, always put you in a good mood? Cultivate them. I was recently reading a newsletter from Tim Ferriss who talked about something very similar. He called it a Past Year Review. Ferriss is a well known podcaster, hosting the show called (wait for it) The Tim Ferriss Show, which has had more than 300 million downloads. One of his books, the 4-Hour WorkWeek, is a New York Times bestseller. In other words, lot of people listen to what Ferriss has to say. He takes a notebook and writes two columns headed “Positive” and “Negative.” He reviews his calendar and writes down people, events or activities that had a positive in his life. And yes, those go under the Positive column. Same thing for the negative column. Ferriss suggests looking at the top 20 percent of each column. Schedule meetings, events and activities on your calendars - now - for those positives. And conversely, create a “Not To Do List” of those things or people in the negative column. I really like the idea of a “Not To Do” list. You have to physically or mentally take an action. And that action is to ensure a negative does not come up. God has put you on earth with specific passions and talents, and designed you for a purpose. Or, He doesn’t exist and we are born, live a while and die. I go with the former and hope you do as well. And that means we understand what we are good at, and use that to the betterment of others and our community. You have a gift. You are a gift. Share it with others. And on behalf of all of us here at Winters Media & Publishing, Inc., we wish you a new year filled with happiness, successful challenges and purpose. Until next time.

Piedmont Newnan Expands, Opens New Holland M. Ware and Faye Hendrix-Ware Advanced Care Unit The Holland M. Ware and Faye Hendrix-Ware Advanced Care Unit at Piedmont Newnan Hospital opened December 20th, welcoming the first patients to the new unit the same morning. Hogansville residents, Holland Ware and Faye Hendrix-Ware contributed $2 million to support construction of the new 18-bed Intermediate Care Unit (IMCU) at Piedmont Newnan. “Partnering with Piedmont Newnan Hospital and seeing the expansion is something I have been hoping for,” said Ware. “This is an honor for me and my family and we are looking forward to seeing the same level of care and concern that Piedmont has shown in all other areas of patient care. After completion, we look forward to partnering on other projects to further research, education and the treatment of cancer.” The $8.5 million expansion increases the total number of beds at Piedmont Newnan and allows the hospital to serve more of the critically ill close to home. Each individual room in the new unit is named after family members of Ware and Hendrix-Ware, in honor of their contribution. “I am greatly honored that the Intermediate Care Unit at Piedmont Newnan Hospital is recognizing me by naming rooms for my family,” added Ware. Last summer, Piedmont Newnan opened the Faye Hendrix-Ware Breast Health Center, establishing a high-risk breast clinic, which was made possible by contributions from Ware and HendrixWare. “Both Holland and I have had personal and family experiences where cancer has touched our

lives and we are both very pleased to be a part of the cutting edge technology and early detection methods available through our contributions to Piedmont Newnan Hospital,” said Hendrix-Ware. “We are certain that not only the level of patient care and treatment will be superior, but the family experience will be greatly enhanced as well. Partnering with Piedmont is the perfect fit and we look forward to the positive impact both the high-risk breast clinic and opening of the intermediate care unit will have on our communities.” Piedmont Newnan is a non-profit, community hospital, and the only acute-care facility in Coweta County. Since opening a new facility in 2012, the hospital has seen tremendous growth and in 2017 admitted just under 10,000 patients. The expansion allows Piedmont Newnan to keep more patients close to home for care. “We are extremely grateful to Faye and Holland for this monumental gift. Their confidence in the care we provide our patients is evident in this level of support,” said Mike Robertson, CEO, Piedmont Newnan Hospital. “Piedmont Newnan is dedicated to providing high-quality, patient centered care close to home and this expansion will continue to propel us forward and have a huge positive impact on patient care.” As a not-for-profit health system, Piedmont relies on the generosity of donors like Holland Ware and Faye Hendrix-Ware to offer many programs and services to the community.

How to Obtain Your Real Estate License It’s a great time to be in real estate. Consider becoming a member of the Newnan-Coweta Board of Realtors in 2019. The process of attaining a real estate license consists of several parts. The next few paragraphs will take you through that process. Applying for a real estate license requires a background check or GCIC report. The Georgia Real Estate Commission/ Board may deny a license/classification to any applicant who has a prior criminal conviction(s) or a disciplinary action(s) imposed by any occupational licensing body. In order to verify a background check, the Commission/Board requires all applicants to obtain and submit a Georgia Crime Information Center (GCIC) report, or an equivalent state-wide criminal background report from their state of residence for non-resident applicants. If you do have prior criminal convictions and/or disciplinary actions, the commission recommends that you apply for background clearance before scheduling and paying for an examination ( There are educational requirements that one must meet in order to be eligible to take the state examination. In addition to being a high school graduate or obtaining a certificate of equivalency, the applicant must complete specific real estate related education. You must also be at least 18 years old. 75 hours of education is required from a school approved by the Georgia Real Estate Commission. You may also submit hours from approved universities and colleges as part of the 75 hour credits needed to Applied Measurement Professionals (AMP). 25 hours of post-license education is required within your first year of licensure ( There are several great schools around the Atlanta area that offer education. The GREC website has several school listed on their website. Many brokers and real estate officers offer education opportunities as well. Once you

meet your required education hours, you must pass the state exam. Applicants for all types of real estate licenses must take and successfully pass a qualifying examination prior to license approval. The exam is administered by AMP and has been developed to protect the public interest by assuring that potential licensees understand basic legal requirements and business practices in the real estate brokerage industry. The state exam is administered by AMP but approved by the Commission. The examination fee is $115. Persons applying for a salesperson's license must apply within twelve months of the date they took the examination; or after twelve months have passed, they must retake the examination. Once your application to sit for the examination has been approved and you have successfully completed the examination, you are eligible to receive your license on the same day you pass the examination. The cost to receive a license is $170 if you obtain it within 90 days of taking the exam. The fee increases to $340 if you obtain you license between 90 days and 12 months. If you fail to apply for your license within 12 months, you must retake the examination to qualify for licensure ( Once you obtain your real estate license you can expect several real estate companies to contact you, if they have not already. Selecting a real estate broker to work for is an essential decision in your real estate career. I would look for a company where you will gain experience and training early on. An office culture that you fit into and that you enjoy is very important also. With a healthy local real estate market, it’s a great time to jump in! (Jess Barron is an Associate Broker with Lindseys, Inc. Realtors and President of the Newnan-Coweta Board of Realtors.)

We Wish You Good Health in 2019! Save money on medical care during cold, flu season Winter has ushered in cold and flu season, and when people want to feel better, the last thing they’re usually thinking about is cost. However, consumers should keep in mind that where they choose to get help will determine the price tag of their medical bills. It’s important to consider healthcare options in advance to avoid expensive bills later. For health conditions that are not life-threatening, it’s cheaper to seek medical care at an urgent care facility (such as Summit Urgent Care or Peachtree Immediate Care) or walk-in clinics (such as the MinuteClinic at CVS, The Little Clinic at Kroger and Piedmont QuickCare at Walgreens) compared to the hospital emergency room. These alternatives can save time and money and also make it easier to receive care, according to Consumer Reports. It costs 10 times more to treat an illness in the emergency room than an urgent care facility for patients with the same diagnosis, a 2017 study in the Annals of Emergency Medicine reports. In the ER, the average price per visit is about $2,200, while the average cost of medical treatment in an urgent care center is $168. As a result, some health insurance companies are discouraging people from visiting the ER and even have the right to deny

coverage for ER visits that don’t meet their definitions of a true emergency. In addition, health insurance companies often have steep co-pays for ER care and high-deductible plans that require consumers to pay thousands of dollars out of pocket before their insurance kicks in. Even if the ER is in the insurance company’s network, about two-thirds of ER doctors are not directly employed by the hospitals where they work and can bill separately. If the physician ends up being out of the patient’s network, the consumer could get stuck with a much higher bill than expected, according to Consumer Reports. Because primary care doctor’s offices often can’t accommodate same-day visits, urgent care facilities and walk-in clinics are great choices for health conditions that are not life-threatening. These facilities accept most insurance plans and offer services for minor illnesses and injuries, screenings, monitoring, skin conditions, vaccinations and injections, physicals and more. Urgent

care centers can also treat medical conditions that are more serious and don’t require a trip to the ER, such as lacerations, fractures, joint sprains or minor burns. Prior to requiring medical care, consumers should identify the urgent care facilities and walk-in clinics in their area. They should contact their insurance company to verify coverage for services at these facilities and prepare for out-of-pocket costs. If lab tests are needed, they are often sent to a third-party laboratory and the patient is billed. Still, it’s cheaper to stay well, so whenever possible, consumers should take precautions to avoid getting ill in the first place. WebMD recommends getting a flu shot and washing your hands frequently with soap and water (scrubbing the backs of your hands, between your fingers and under your nails for 20 seconds or more) when coming in contact with people who are sick, though it’s best to avoid getting close to anyone who is ill. WebMD also suggests using alcohol-based hand sanitizer when soap and water aren’t available and sanitizing your home and work space (door knobs, light switches, telephones, desk, etc.) with disinfectant spray, disinfecting wipes or rubbing alcohol diluted with water. Also, take care of yourself yearround by getting adequate rest, eating a nutritious diet, not smoking and keeping

allergies under control. If consumers do become ill, they should seek treatment early to improve their outcome. For instance, a bad cold can turn into a sinus infection. GoodRx reports that zinc lozenges can reduce the severity and duration of common cold symptoms. Also, find ways to save on cold and flu medicine, such as buying the generic brand and looking for printed coupons in sales inserts or digital coupons offered online by grocery and retail stores such as Kroger and Dollar General. Keep an eye out for deals and check your medicine cabinet periodically to make sure your over-the-counter drugs haven’t expired.

Seasonal Affective Disorder possible following holidays By Beth Dow Solutions By Beth

The holidays are over. The days are shorter. It’s cold and dreary outside so we cuddle with a blanket in front of the television. And that is fine. Until it’s not. Until we spend more time in the blanket than out in the world. Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) is a type of depression that occurs mostly in the winter months, but because it is influenced by seasonal changes, it can occur in the spring as well. The symptoms are many that you would expect like: depressed mood, feelings of hopelessness, a lack of energy, difficulty concentrating, and a loss of pleasure in activities. In severe cases thoughts of death or suicide may be present. But you may not recognize other symptoms such as heaviness in your arms and legs, stiffness in your neck and joints, frequent oversleeping, cravings for carbohydrates, weight gain, and relationship problems. We don’t know all the causes of SAD or why it affects some people

and not others, but we do know that the decrease of sunlight in the winter is a strong factor. Also, those with SAD show reduced levels of serotonin and melatonin. So what can you do if you feel you may be experiencing the effects of SAD? You may want to try over the counter serotonin and melatonin supplements (with your doctors’ approval). Next, make some lifestyle changes. Go outside more often and soak in as much sunlight as you can. Exercise – this is a great time to start that walking program you have been thinking about.

Winter is actually a great time to start. For the most part, our winters in Georgia are mild and beat walking in the 90-degree, humidity-filled days of summer. Watch your alcohol intake. Over the holidays, alcohol intake often goes up. It is now time to slow it back down. And connect with friends and family. Have coffee, see a movie, go out to dinner, or have them over to play a game of cards. If you make these changes and still do not feel the depression lifting, contact your doctor. There are medications that can help. If you are having multiple down days, don’t ignore the symptoms and hope they will go away. Feeling this way is not a sign a weakness. It is chemical reaction that is happening in your body. Don’t ride it out. Get help and make the changes in your life that can make this a great start to a great year.

The Newnan-Coweta Historical Society is taking applications for a $10,000 scholarship for local students intending to pursue a college education with a history major or minor. NCHS has offered $1,000 scholarships to graduating seniors at each Coweta County public high school for many years, but the Scholarship Committee established last year wanted to do more to encourage the study of history. The new $10,000 scholarship -- now offered for the second year -- will be available to all local students, not just those in public schools. Those include students in private school, virtual schools or home-schooled. The scholarship is $2,500 per year, paid in installments per semester or quarter depending on the institution’s system. The historical society is using the scholarship to encourage talented students to consider a career in history-related studies. Students must be Coweta County residents and eligible for a high school graduation certificate or diploma. The scholarship application is now available at the NCHS website, www.newnancowetahistoricalsociety. com. Look for it also on the NCHS Facebook page or pick up a copy at the NCHS offices at McRitchie-Hollis Museum, 74 Jackson St., Newnan, GA 30263. For more information call the NCHS offices at 770-251-0207. The scholarship application is now available at the NCHS website.

A Chili Recipe for a Snowy Day

Snow days. They’re all I think about come January. Nothing gets my childlike hopes up as much as a forecast of winter precipitation, and I look forward to the run on bread, milk, and tissue at the grocery stores. And on those all-too-few occasions when snow is headed our way, I do what my mother always did and cook a pot of chili. Vegetable soup will do if those are the only ingredients I have on hand, but a nice big pot of chili says, “Snow is coming and the electricity still works and I’m ready to hibernate and enjoy the white stuff for a few days.” I’ve had chili just about every way imaginable, and I prefer a soup-like chili to a thicker chili. If chili sticks to the spoon, I want it served over a hot dog and alongside some onion rings and a Frosted Orange, if you get my drift. Years ago, I was intrigued to learn that Texans insist that their chili have no beans. Some Texans even insist that their chili have no tomatoes, which makes me wonder why they don’t just call the mixture “taco meat” and get it over with. (I have a brother-in-law from Texas, though, and mean no disrespect. Some fine folks are Texans, even if they do have some strange chilimaking ways.) Local chili contests are always fun to watch, and I like to see what “magic ingredients” cooks use. Corn. Bay leaves. A pinch of this or a pinch of that. And these days, I like to add tea to my chili. I’ve used flavorful steeped teas in dozens of recipes over the years, and one of my favorite ways is to use tea as the liquid whenever I’m cooking chili. I’ve used green tea, black tea, oolong tea, and I’ve even added a slight touch of sweetness to my chili by using rooibos (often pronounced “ROY-bus”) tea. Are you up for trying a new chili recipe this winter? Go ahead and gather the ingredients now. You never know when we might just get a snow day!

Who Am I? (part 2) What is Your Personal Brand? Every business has a brand. Many have marketing departments which intentionally strategize to control the business brand. Some dabble in marketing in an attempt to portray that “one thing” they are best known for, and others just fly by the seat of their pants hoping only to make a sale or two today. Either way, every business is branded by the customers they serve. Jeff Bezos of Amazon said it best, “Your brand is what other people say about you when you are not in the room.” There is a unique challenge with most entrepreneurial endeavors and what I call solopreneurs. When you serve a local community, your business brand always reflects the personality or reputation of the owner and not the marketing efforts of the business. The actions, words, and choices of the person will probably overshadow the business. So, your personal brand is important. You become known by others primarily by how you’ve touched their life. Whether it was a positive touch or a negative touch, you left a mark. How are you known? There is a way to determine your existing brand and how to build a strategy to improve who you are. There is a way to control how you are known. And, there is a way to repair brand damage. Your first step is to find a mirror. You must be honest with yourself. I’ll be transparent here. Several years ago one of my hardest obstacles, one I waged war within my own heart, was to honestly look in the mirror and convince myself that I had a problem. I had issues that needed to be fixed. I was not upholding honorable or good standards, and I had become apathetic towards truly caring about other’s impression of me, operating with compassion, or fulfilling every detail of a commitment whether the client knew or not. That was hard, and as I said, it was war. Your second step is to repair damaged relationships. I’ll go deeper into this another time. Next, set your goals for personal brand improvement. Build your set of standards, personality traits, and procedures. Find a mentor. Recruit an accountability partner. Expose your bad habits and practice new, good habits. Define your overall aspirations and what is needed to get you there. Finally, manage your journey wisely. Set blinders and don’t be distracted. Learn from your past but be resolved that the past will not be your motivational driver. It is behind you. Develop a system to hold YOURSELF accountable. In essence, you must manage you. I have much more to say and will go more into depth in future posts. I hope this is motivating you to change. I know it may seem difficult. But you can do it. Let me know if I can help.

January Trends & Trendsetters There are so many new trends happening in social media, politics, business and fashion. Look for 2019 to be filled with many new trends while still holding on to those timeless trends. (Corby is known to many as the Little Black Dress and The Paper Girl. She has a passion for fashion and home decor and is crazy about fabulous shoes and anything in leopard print. She is a trained counselor and loves writing, ministering, speaking and offering businesses growth coaching. She treasures spending time with good friends, Winters and the Sons of Thunder.)

A local monthly marketplace For many years residents have driven to Atlanta for antique markets that were open one weekend a month. All who attend know you must plan to be ready to buy it right then and there or you may never see it again. Now you can save the drive. Newnan has a brand new monthly marketplace in town called Cotton and Clover. The new proprietors, Gail Ansley, Janet Cantrell and Heather Miller are counting on your interest in a local monthly market place. This fabulous shop will be open the third weekend of each month starting in January. The gals will be out and about to bring you the best of the best and the most creative things at awesome prices. Here you will find where vintage and handmade meet timeless, modern and most of fabulous. Cotton and Clover is located at 19 Millard Farmer Boulevard.

Family owned and operated business In the South family owned business are a timeless trend. You can find many of them right here in The Paper and The Shopper. One I want to highlight is when Ileana Morrison ( a new member of our staff) took me to She Craft, Co. a darling new restaurant in Tyrone. I walked in the door and was thrilled to see a familiar face behind the cash register - Becky She. Miss She was the owner of several restaurants, including She Bistro. This time She is helping out her son, Adam and his wife Lexy,, who is the chef. They opened up about six months ago and focus on Asian American style with a fun flare fusion. Adam is Chinese and Lexy is an old Southern gal, so they have quite a diverse menu going.

Fashion trends you will see popping up in 2019 Hats For Both Men and Women. Hats are fun, fabulous and can cover up an unexpected bad hair day or lack thereof. So don’t be shy to wear them - from beanies to the classic fedora. My mother adored hats and I love carrying on her passion.

January is a perfect time to let go of unneeded stuff

Snake skin patterns and fabric will be popping up all over from boots, belts, bracelets, and clothing. One small piece will get you in the spring trend.

If you love to clean out or even if you don’t, January is a perfect time to do so. And remember the old adage one man’s or woman's junk is another one’s treasure.” Clean it out and most of all start fresh in the new year. Anyone who knows me knows I love bargains and also helping others out.

Acrylic tortoise jewelry can be perfect addition to your jewelry box. You will love these wonderful lightweight and reasonably priced earring, bracelets and necklaces. You can find them in many of our wonderful shops and in many colors, patterns, shapes and sizes.

There are many outstanding nonprofits in our area who would love some things you no longer need. Our home flooded on Jan. 2, 2018, and we are still fixing up small items. Much of our home was rebuilt from wonderful things found at Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore and we are blessed with repurposed possessions of others. I was there so much they eventually hired the Eldest SON of Thunder to work there. Places like these are great for bargains and help worthly causes.

The classic vest will be more and more seen on both men and woman this year. Vests can kick up any outfit a notch and make for a great statement. ❦ January 2, 2019 ❦ The SHOPPER ❦ Page 15

A new study by the University of West Georgia said the university: “contributed $577 million to the region’s economy during the state’s 2017 fiscal year … UWG’s economic impact has climbed 30 percent in the last six years. Sixty-four percent of this year’s contribution came from direct expenses from the university, according to the study. The remaining $207 million, or 36 percent of its contribution, came from investing those dollars in the region by UWG students, employees, vendors and other sources,” the study said.

Michigan State University is now offering students therapy cows. For $10, students can pet cows for 30 minutes at MSU's Dairy Cattle Teaching and Research Center. In the past, MSU has held similar events with dogs. This is the first time using cows. Farm Manager Andrea Meade said, "The whole idea is kind of a new concept that's going through the animal world right now. People are really realizing more and more the benefits of how therapeutic animals are, according to news reports."

A new Mexican restaurant is opening up where The Corner Tavern used to be. Los Abuelos Mexican Grill is “coming soon” according to a sign outside the restaurant near Target. Our Google translator said it means “The Grandparents.”

Chicken chain KFC is debuting an Enviro-Log that it says smells like its signature product, 11 herbs and spices and all, Fox reports.

It depends on whom you ask, but Chick-fil-A is expected to become the third-largest restaurant chain in the country pretty soon. Estimates are either next year or 2020 for sure. The top two spots are held by McDonald’s and Starbucks. Chick-fil-A currently is at No. 7 but moving up fast.

In Theaters: On the Basis of Sex (review)

What Movie to Watch: Roma (streaming now) - Worth repeating from last month with a little more detail, “Roma” is my number one movie of 2018. And while some viewers were fortunate to see it on the big screen, it worked for me wonderfully on the small screen. Written, directed, and shot by Alfonso Cuarón (Oscar winner for 2013’s “Gravity”), “Roma” takes place in the early 1970s and follows Cleo (Yaltza Aparicio), who works as a nanny for a middle class family in the Colonia Roma district of Mexico City. By delivering storytelling without pretense, Cuarón reminds us of the power of pure dramatic cinema. What to Avoid: Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle (streaming now) -“Mowgli” is the passion project of motion capture expert Andy Serkis (who directs here), the actor responsible for crafting the memorable characters of Gollum from “The Lord of the Rings” franchise and Caesar from the “Planet of the Apes” reboot trilogy. Based on the classic novel by Rudyard Kipling, we dive into the jungle where a human child, Mowgli (Rohan Chand), is raised by wolves and must face off against the evil tiger Shere Khan (voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch). The effects range from stunning to distracting as the familiar characters come to life with less than memorable results. Watch the Disney version instead.

“On the Basis of Sex” focuses on the early life of popular Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg from her law school days through her first case before the Supreme Court. Unlike other more ambitious and less successful biopics, the focus here is narrow, pinpointing the first big case that helped take Ginsburg from the classroom to the courtroom. And director Mimi Leder smartly doesn’t try to tell RBG’s entire life’s story. After all, that life is very much on-going, and there’s more story to be written. Vice (review)

With “Vice,” the spirited, stunt director Adam McKay, who brought his energetic brand of filmmaking to “The Big Short” in 2015, tackles a single, infamous subject in the former Vice President Dick Cheney (played by Christian Bale). While this one is hugely entertaining, it is important to understand that much dramatic license is taken with the facts. “Vice” is likely to be recognized more for Bale’s uncanny performance than for the film itself.

What to Binge: Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure and Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey With exciting news of a third Bill & Ted’s movie in the works, now is the perfect time to revisit the first two and get your bogus fix. And remember to “Be excellent to each other. And… Party on, dudes!” Seems like those words make for a fine New Year’s resolution. What Movie to Avoid: The Last Airbender (January 8) - With M. Night Shyamalan’s latest “Glass” storming into theaters on January 18, there’s really no reason to revisit anything other than the director’s better films (and there are several available). “The Last Airbender” ain’t one of them. This live-action adaptation of the popular animated television series derailed Shyamalan’s career somewhat, but thankfully, he appears to have found some magic again by revisiting the ideas introduced in his minor classic “Unbreakable.” What Movie to Avoid: Destiny Turns on the Radio - This potentially interesting misfire came on the heels of director Quentin Tarantino’s massive breakout with “Pulp Fiction.” Here he appears in an annoying cameo that fails to elevate the material. The forgettable story concerns a bank robber, who escapes from prison and receives some help from Tarantino’s supernatural character in Las Vegas. What Movie to Watch: 2 Days in the Valley (January 1) - To wash out of your memory time wasted on “Destiny Turns on the Radio,” try “2 Days in the Valley,” an amiable 1990s hip crime story that also features an early performance by Charlize Theron.

Aquaman (review) What to Binge: The Grand Tour: Season 3 (January 18) - The Amazon Prime unofficial reboot of the core “Top Gear” series proved to be a rousing success. Presenters Jeremy Clarkson, James May, and Richard Hammond talk about and drive unusual vehicles with a wonderful sense of humor.

Pouring loads of dude-bro “hell yeah” into a clunky, labored narrative helps bring balance to an otherwise visually striking superhero yarn. More fun than impactful, “Aquaman” is great to look at, but tough to buy narratively. A lot is going on, with constant underwater travels from kingdom to kingdom and a host of eclectic and threatening characters. While there is an epic feel, the constant stream of tongue-incheek humor fails to gel with the heavier issues presented.

Streaming Selects:

What to Binge: Indiana Jones (January 1) - All four Indiana Jones films (yes, even “Crystal Skull”) are streaming on Netflix this month. This is a chance to watch them all in order and get your “Raiders” fix. And let’s not forget, Steven Spielberg and Harrison Ford have committed to a fifth film that was pushed to 2021 by Disney. Fingers crossed that that installment gets made.

What Movie to Watch: Leave No Trace (January 3) One of the best films of 2018, director Debra Granik’s “Leave No Trace” is arguably a more restrained and refined narrative than her excellent “Winter’s Bone.” Intimate storytelling at its best, this movie follows military veteran Will (Ben Foster) and his child Tom (Thomasin McKenzie) as they try to live off-the-grid. Worth Checking Out: Eighth Grade (January 13) - Heralded by critics, comedian turned director Bo Burnham’s story about eighth grader Kayla Day (a perfect Elsie Fisher) is a touching and heartbreaking, authentic look at a formative year in a young girl’s life. What to Avoid: Gotti (streaming now) - Okay, I watched this notorious 2018 release, and it’s bad, really bad. Directed by Kevin Connolly, one of the guys from the series “Entourage,” the film proves to be an odd mess, with an incoherent story. John Travolta stars as the crime boss John Gotti. And Travolta, who can be great, is like a cartoon character here, as the makeup effects vary dramatically showing Gotti over many time periods (the narrative jumps around wildly). The weird, ripped off score is strange, with one scene set to the music from “Shaft.” This vividly exposes the real problem with the film—it’s fatally in love with its degenerate subject. ❦ January 2, 2019 ❦ The SHOPPER ❦ Page 19

Q. The Native Plant Mystery and Adventure - Part II By Marci Moore, Coweta Master Gardener Extension Volunteer Part I in October explained the basics of maintenance and benefits of choosing native plants. Now consider adding natural color to your garden throughout the year. As you plan next year’s garden, consider adding native plants. You don’t have to convert your whole landscape. Start by adding a few to your existing garden.

For the past three years Master Gardener Extension Volunteers (MGEVs), under cochairs Pat Farmer and Dale Senko (shown above with two types of native azaleas and coneflowers), have been adding natives to the habitat at the James E. McGuffey Nature Center. MGEVs have used this area to learn more about native plants and try out different types and varieties. They have installed native trees, shrubs, ferns and wildflowers along the trails. By monitoring survival rates, they see what does well and in which type of location. Each season the nature trail presents another view of natives. Plants are chosen by environmental requirements, color and attributes at different seasons. There’s a great link to see more about the terrific restoration project at the McGuffey Nature Center on the Georgia Native Plant Society website: restoration/james-e-mcguffey-nature-center-trails-restoration-project/ Consider adding native plants to your landscape to create seasonal interest and alternatives to overused non-native plants. By adding plant diversity you will be providing birds and insect pollinators the food and shelter they need. If you want to help the Monarch butterfly, then use this link to learn about another native plant, the swamp milkweed, which is their primary food source, milkweedinformation.pdf. The following suggestions are only a few of the many native plants that will create seasonal interest and add color to your outdoor decor. Be sure to select natives and not non-natives and cultivars using the same common name. Use the University of Georgia’s native plant publications as a guide. They are available at Bulletin 1339 covers native plants. Spring – Flame azaleas (there are many native azaleas with different colors and bloom times to choose from), fringe tree, columbine, foam flower, blue eyed grass, bleeding hearts and celandine poppy.

Shown above left to right: celandine poppy, anise, butterfly weed (monarchs), lady slippers, hearts-a-burstin Summer -Pplumleaf azaleas, oak leaf hydrangea, bottlebrush buckeye, sourwood tree; magnolia and native coneflowers Fall – Red maple, sweet pepperbush, Georgia aster, hearts- a- burstin, joe-pye weed and cinnamon fern Winter - Winter red holly, anise, wood fern; keep those native coneflower heads standing for the birds during the winter. Mark your calendars for April 13, 2019 for the Coweta MGEV Spring Plant Sale at the County Fairgrounds. We will offer native plants at the sale and a plant list will be available closer to sale time. Visit the McGuffey Nature Center, located at the County Fairgrounds at 255 Pine Rd, Newnan, GA., to see different native species during the different seasons. Pick up the MGEV brochure at the Extension Office, and welcome native plants into your yard! It will become addictive!

My holiday plants usually don’t last very long. Is there anything I can do to keep them looking great through the winter?


From poinsettias to cyclamen and showy amaryllis to Christmas cacti, plants are popular holiday and hostess gifts. Their brilliant colors are a welcome addition to dreary winter days and with proper care, they can last through the whole season and some for even years to come. Here are a few of the most popular gift plants and some tips on how to care for them. Poinsettias Poinsettias come in many colors and have been a favorite holiday plant in the United States for many years. The “flowers” are actually colored leaves, called bracts, which surround the true, tiny yellow flowers in the middle. The colorful bracts may stay bright for months with proper care. Bright, indirect light and frequent watering are essential. Poinsettias need at least six hours of bright light a day to keep blooming for more than a couple of weeks. Temperatures between 65 and 70 degrees are ideal for poinsettias. Keep them out of drafts and away from direct heat sources like fireplaces and heat vents. Water when the soil surface feels dry and just until water drains out of the bottom of the pot. Do not let them stand in water-filled saucers because poinsettias are susceptible to root rot. To keep poinsettias as foliage plants, cut the plant back to about 10-inches when the colored bracts begin to fade in early spring. Feed with a standard houseplant food and repot in a slightly larger container to encourage root growth. By late spring, your poinsettia should have lots of new green bracts and can be moved outside to a sheltered position until frost. It can be maintained as a striking foliage plant for many years, but reblooming requires a strict regimen of dark periods and light. Cyclamen Cyclamen are usually available from October through March. Its graceful, winged flowers of pink, rose, white or crimson rise on long stems above distinctive, heart-shaped leaves. Given cool growing conditions in a well-lighted spot out of direct sun, cyclamen can bloom for several months. Cool temperatures between 50 and 60 degrees are the key to making the flowers last longer. Cooler temperatures can generally be found at an east or north facing window during the winter. The soil should be kept moist, but the pots should not stand in water. Cyclamen are easily damaged from overwatering and under watering. Cyclamen are perennials with thick, tuberous roots, which can last for years. They require rest Given cool growing conditions and a wellafter blooming. Gradually withhold water until lighted spot out of direct sunlight, cyclamen can bloom for several months. Credit: UGA the leaves die back and do not water again for Cooperative Extension. six weeks. New foliage will appear after watering resumes. Bright light and cool temperatures may produce a plant that will reflower. Holiday Cactus There are three types of related species that look like Christmas cacti. They bloom at different times of the year and can be found in flower at Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter. All require bright sunlight and moderate moisture levels. South windows are excellent locations for holiday cactus. After the six weeks of blooming, remove spent flowers and apply a houseplant fertilizer. Holiday cacti can be grown outside in semi-shade locations. Stem pieces of three segments or more are easily propagated. Amaryllis, Easter lily and chrysanthemum are also popular holiday gift plants. The key to keeping them healthy is to pay close attention to the plant’s care label. All plants need water, but very few do well when left standing in it. Remove any decorative foil from around the pot or punch holes through it to promote good drainage. Most potted plants perform well with a biweekly or monthly feeding of a balanced houseplant fertilizer.
