The Staging Life Every Time! Every Consultation! One of the best things about my work is that I get to meet some really interesting people and see how other people live and experience life. Most are a little nervous about having someone come in and give them advice about how to prepare their home to sell, and I think it’s because they think that stagers are mean and intimidating like that lady that used to be on TV. No matter how beautiful or how much work is needed, the following things are mentioned at every home staging consultation and I thought I’d pass it along to our readers.

Eliminate

Varicose Veins

Appearance … Highest priority is curb appeal and front entrance. Pay the most attention at this location because this is where we either keep them interested or lose them and purchase a new door mat. Light it up … Turn on anything that has a bulb in it. Furniture such as china cabinets or kitchen cabinets. Make sure all of the bulbs are the same color and no pig tail bulbs fluorescent bulbs or LED with bluish tint. Now don't be stubborn … If you have "taste specific" decor, being stubborn about changes and making it more buyer friendly is only going to hurt you. Do some work … Go ahead and do the work needed. The buyer will subtract 3 times more than it will cost you to go ahead and do the work. New linens … Update/ change your bed linens. The mattress pad, sleeping pillows, sheets and decorative linens hold our odor and a buyer doesn’t want to smell you when they are considering your house to purchase. Extra attention … The functional spaces such as the kitchen, bathrooms and laundry area need to be “pretty” while on the market. Extra attention will need to be paid to these areas on a daily basis to keep your home in showing condition Photo ready? … The most important day is picture day and if the house isn’t ready, the worst thing you can do is put the house on the market before it’s ready to show.

“Murder in Coweta County” Events Planned for July 17-18, 2018 70 Years after Murder in Coweta County “Behind the Story/Behind the Movie” the real people involved in the “murder” events and portrayed in the movie. Among those anticipated to join Atkins on the panel include relatives of the victim, Wilson (aka William) Turner; relatives of Steve Smith (owner of the murder site Sunset Tourist Camp); relatives of Judge Samuel Boykin; relatives of Meriwether Co. Sheriff Hardy Collier as well as a relative of one of the accused, Henry Mobley, among others.

The Coweta County Convention & Visitor’s Bureau and the Newnan Carnegie Library are collaborating to present a two-night event featuring the movie “Murder in Coweta County.” This year marks the 70th anniversary of the murder and 35 years since the movie aired. Dick Atkins, the producer of the CBS made-for-TV movie, will discuss the memories of making the movie in neighboring counties in 1982. The movie was based on the book of the same name written by Margaret Anne Barnes, a local reporter at the time of the Wallace trial. It aired in February of 1983 and starred Andy Griffith and Johnny Cash. Events begin Tuesday, July 17 at 6 p.m. with a screening of the movie at the Carnegie Library in downtown Newnan. Atkins and Winston Skinner will talk about the movie prior to the screening and then field questions and discuss more after it.

Various memorabilia, including some items once owned by the villain of the movie, Meriwether County resident John Wallace, will be on display at the historic courthouse in Newnan that Wednesday evening. Wednesday, July 18 at 6:30 p.m. a panel discussion is planned in the second floor courtroom in the historic courthouse. Taking part in the discussion with Atkins and moderator, Skinner, will be some relatives of

Encouraging Words

____________________________________

_________     

There is some quadratic-like formula that illustrates that as your children get older, you somehow get, well, dumber.

Conquering Disappointment

They know everything. Just ask them. Seriously. I love the teenage years. Really. I digress. The reality is I wanted a new, and yes I will admit, bigger television. And I wanted one that had everything included and I could do it all with one remote. I mean access my stereo, Netflix, HBO, television, and so forth without going through a lot of hoops. Honestly, I was just tired, and frankly couldn’t remember which input I had to hit for the music to play and was it HDMI 2 or HDMI 3 for movies and did the optical cable go in the input or output … you know what I mean. So Eldest said I needed a “smart TV.” That raised an immediate eyebrow. Sort of like when someone says “You can trust me,” or “I will take your secret to the grave” or “I’m not racist, I have (fill in your ethnic selection here) friends.” I digress. So we head off to the Big Box Store Of Electronics and after debate on the proper number of pixels per square inch we finally get it narrowed down. I ask Eldest about setup and he gives me the hand wave off and goes, “Simple. No problem.” This again leads me to raise an eyebrow because I have experienced a “Simple. No problem” electronic set up with him before, which led to the Little Black Dress coming in and telling us to both go into timeouts. Let’s just double check with an “associate” or “customer service advisor” or “experience satisfier.” “Can I push one button and get to Netflix?” I ask. “Yes sir.” “Spotify? YouTube? Hulu? Saved movies? Playlists? Bluetooth to tie with my “smartphone.” “Uh, yes sir,” he said and looks at me like I might know something. So I look over at Eldest and give him the “see, someone thinks I’m not a complete moron look” and he just shakes his head and walks off. So we get this “smart TV” home and Eldest spends about 30 seconds getting it programmed. And he’s going so fast I don’t have a clue what is going on. “So just remember this is the home button and you start here and then scroll down if you want 4K or just regular HDTV is here and Netflix is a hardwired button and …” I’m already lost. “Okay, let’s start at the beginning. How do I change channels with the remote when I’m watching television?” “You can’t.” “Wait what? Volume?” “You can’t. That’s not what this remote does.” “Why do I have a remote, and the only remote I might add, that comes with this television and it can’t change channels or the volume? What does it do?” “You can switch over to Netflix, Hulu, Spotify, YouTube, HBO Now, Showtime …” he keeps on talking as I just shake my head and walk out. So I have this “smart TV” remote that can do anything, except switch television channels. Sort of like my “smartphone” that can do anything except something simple, like be able to talk to someone without having to constantly say, “can you hear me now?” “Smart” isn’t always better. Until next time.

Throughout your life you’ll be faced with many disappointments. Perhaps you’re dealing with a disappointment right now. Whether someone you trusted or loved let you down, whether something in your work, business or family didn’t go right, or whether your life isn’t where you want it to be – life just seems to have a way of kicking us when we’re already down. Disappointment is not an easy thing to face, but standing strong in the face of disappointment and picking yourself up afterwards is critical to living a good life. “When disappointment weighs on you like a rock, you can either let it press you down until you become discouraged – even devastated, or you can use it as a stepping stone to better things.” … Joyce Meyer Disappointment is nothing but an eye opening learning process for your future endeavors.” … Edmond Mbiaka “Enthusiasm is followed by disappointment and even depression, and then by renewed enthusiasm.” … Murray Gell-Mann “The simple solution for disappointment type depression is to get up and get moving. Physically move. Do. Act. Get going!” … Peter McWilliams “Hope is tomorrow’s veneer over today’s disappointment.” … Evan Esar “Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need and thank Him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand.

We Believe…

In being prepared to weather the storm. Hurricane season is now underway in the U.S. and, despite our distance from the coast, we in north Georgia are often affected by storms that come from the southeast and the Gulf of Mexico. This year, weather experts believe the country can expect an above average storm season. Regardless of whether these predictions come true, it’s always a good idea to take a proactive course of action ahead of issued hurricane warnings. Here are a few tips to get prepared: 1. Think about purchasing a generator. In the event of loss of electricity, a generator can keep critical appliances running. Lights stay on, devices stay charged and weather updates are available on television, radio or online. It can also provide power if someone in the home is dependent on electricity for life-sustaining medical equipment. 2. An emergency hurricane kit for the family and any pets should be easily accessible within the home. In addition to food and bottled water, the kit should include a flashlight, first aid kit, battery-powered radio, a whistle to signal for help, and an assortment of hand tools. 3. Outages and the need for fuel go hand-in-hand. During a power outage, you still might need to be out and about or possibly relocate to a different location, so ensuring that your car is fueled is important. In a worst-case scenario, your car can serve as a source of light, heat and electricity. A portable generator is far better suited to provide backup power, though, so make sure it has clean fuel, as well. Store fuel in approved containers. (A more detailed list of power outage safety tips can be found at www.Generac.com/hurricane-prep.) The safety of our residents and staff is of utmost importance at Wesley Woods of Newnan. We have a plan for every type of emergency situation; come see how we’re prepared to weather any type of storm!

Tips to Beat the Summer Heat While Pregnant

There are some advantages to being pregnant during the summer months (like wearing flip-flops and dresses and going on vacation) but hot, muggy summer days are certainly not one of them. Summer heat is notoriously uncomfortable for pregnant women and can pose some unique risks, such as overheating (which increases the risk for pregnancy loss), dizziness, fainting and dehydration.

Welcome! Piedmont Physicians Endocrinology Piedmont Healthcare is pleased to bring Endocrinology Care to the Coweta and Fayette County area.

If you are wondering how to beat the heat without staying cooped up indoors all summer, check out these tips from Oluwaseun Suzanne Cole, MD, Ob/Gyn at Piedmont Physicians Obstetrics and Gynecology in Newnan.

1. Go for a swim. “Swimming is a great workout during pregnancy because of the low amount of stress and resistance it puts on the body – and it cools you off at the same time,” said Dr. Cole. “The cool water can also help with swelling.” 2. Seek shade. Sun exposure doesn’t pose any more of a risk than usual, but it’s cooler in the shade. “If your skin is prone to melisma, which are dark patches that can appear on your face or neck during pregnancy, reducing your sun exposure may help,” Dr. Cole said. 3. Drink more water. “Pregnant women need an extra eight ounces of water for every hour in the sun to stay hydrated,” said Dr. Cole. To prevent dehydration, try carrying a water bottle with you. Also, adding slices of fruit – such as lemons, oranges or cucumbers – can give your water a hint of flavor and a cool, refreshing taste. “In extreme cases, dehydration can cause contractions and even preterm labor, so it is important to stay hydrated,” said Dr. Cole. 4. Avoid unnecessary changes in body temperature. Your body has to work hard to adjust to continuous spikes and declines in temperature. “When going outside, try wearing light-colored, breathable clothing and a hat to keep your body cool,” advises Dr. Cole. “Also try to schedule your appointments in the morning or at the end of the day when it isn’t as hot outside.”

5. Put your feet up. “When it’s hot outside, pregnant women tend to get swollen legs and feet more quickly,” said Dr. Cole. Putting your feet up when you sit down can relieve the swelling. Wearing flip-flops or sandals gives your feet air and helps with swelling as well. For more ways to stay safe during your pregnancy and tips for preparing for baby’s arrival, visit piedmont.org.

Meet the Coweta County MGEV Class of 2018

Phillips, Shanna Campbell, Patty Ellis, Katrina Brown, Mark Hess, Kathy Olmstead, David Fowler. Back row/left: Drew Brown, Michael Williams, Carol Kraft, Diane Cook, Beverly Yeager, and Audrey Harrelson By Coweta MGEV, Marci Ward Here in Georgia more than 3,000 active MGEVs (Master Gardener Extension Volunteer) volunteer their time across the state each year, contributing more than one hundred seventy-thousand hours of volunteer service. This translates to almost $4 million dollars in service donated annually by volunteers. As of December 2017, 86 Coweta County MGEVs volunteered 6,964 hours and traveled nearly 37,000 miles serving Coweta residents last year. They also participated in 29 hours of advanced training and 143 hours of continuing education to improve their skills. The 2018 Coweta County MGEV class graduated in April, and nineteen new volunteers have hit the ground running. These trainees are now working hard to complete their 50 hours of volunteer service this year in order to become certified Master Gardeners. After this year, they will be required to complete at least twenty-five hours of volunteer service to maintain their certification. There are many ways for volunteers to complete their service hours. For instance, you may have spoken with one of our volunteers through the Master Gardener help desk at the Extension office or seen them at the fairgrounds if you attended the Master Gardener Plant Sale a few months ago.

Tax-Free Exchange for Dummies You probably have heard of tax-free exchanges or maybe you have completed one yourself. If you are a real estate investor and you are not using 1031 Tax-free exchanges, you certainly should be. With a 1031 exchange, you are able to defer paying taxes on the sale of a property. If you reinvest the proceeds in a new property, this is considered an “exchange” rather than a sale. This will allow you to avoid a large capital gains tax. The legislation and “rules” for tax-free exchanges are constantly changing so it is important to stay up to date with the latest changes. As it stands now, both properties involved must be investment properties, whether you intend to lease the new property or flip the home for profit. For example, you cannot sell an investment home, then put the profit into a property that you intend to live in yourself, and avoid taxes. Also, the home or property you are buying must be equal to or worth more than the property you just sold. There are several rules to follow when completing a 1031 exchange. As you might expect with government and taxes, it is a complicated process. Once you decide to do a tax-free exchange, the proceeds from the sale of the first property will be held in an escrow account by an independent third party. You cannot access this money until you close on a new property. Forty-five days is the amount of time you have to identify a new property, once the first home closes. Once you find the property, you have another 180 days to complete the purchase. Real Estate transactions are fluid and often complicated. Properties do not always close on time, or sometimes, close at all. Due to this unpredictability, many investors choose more than one property to buy to hedge themselves should one not close. There are several rules involved with this and I will not bore you with the details. More information can be found on IRS.gov and Realtor.com With the local real estate market growing stronger and stronger by the day, it might be a good time for you to invest. I hope this article will provide you with the ability to save some money. If you are already investing, I hope this article will improve your bottom line.

Dr. Gruber is a board certified orthopedic surgeon with subspecialty certification in sports medicine and sub-specialty interest in joint replacement. He treats patients of all ages and backgrounds with musculoskeletal injuries and conditions. Dr. Gruber attended Presbyterian College, where he played on the soccer team and was recognized as an academic all-American, graduating with honors. He married his high school sweetheart, Sharon, and moved to Augusta, Georgia where he attended the Medical College of Georgia, again graduating with honors. He completed his orthopedic residency at Wake Forest University Medical Center, an institution known for its excellent joint replacement and sports medicine program. Dr. Gruber holds a Certificate of Additional Qualification (CAQ) in orthopedic sports medicine, which is the highest level of accreditation in sports medicine. While at Wake Forest, he served as a sports medicine physician for the university athletes, and he enjoys providing that same level of care and philosophy of accelerated rehabilitation to our local residents. He particularly enjoys helping his patients “get back in the game”, whether it’s on the athletic field or in an activity that they desire. When joint replacement is the appropriate course of action, Dr. Gruber can offer an accelerated return to recovery with the direct anterior (DA) approach to hip replacement. This allows his patients to experience an easier and faster recovery and, for some patients, can be done in the Georgia Bone and Joint Ambulatory Surgery Center as an outpatient procedure. When Dr. Gruber is not taking care of his patients he is probably fishing or riding his bike or enjoying time with his wife. He and Sharon have enjoyed being part of the local community for 25 years. They have 3 grown children and enjoy traveling and spending time with their family.

July Trends and Trendsetters Each month we cover some of the hot trends from health and wellness, fashion and style, business or even tapping into your creative side. (Corby is known to many as a Power Shopper, the Little Black Dress and a life stylist. She’s crazy about shoes, clothes, accessories, and of course leopard prints. She loves writing, speaking, ministering, life coaching and being with friends, Winters and the SONS of Thunder.)

Tassels are everywhere

Tassels are no longer just for home decor or your graduation hood. You can always find them on furniture, light fixtures, and candlesticks, but now they are popping up everywhere. Now you see them as part of necklaces, and even earrings and keychains. They can be fun and even a little sexy. But not all tassels are created equal. Be sure the ones you use go with your face and hair color and length. It’s all about proportions.

Take a road trip in a rental car Everyone gets the idea of renting a car because you had to fly to another city for work. Or, if the car was in the shop for a long time, you might need one so you don’t go stir crazy. But recently I’ve noticed that many are renting cars to use for vacation travel - starting at their front door. There are many reasons to do so: save wear and tear on your own vehicle; you need something bigger; or you want something really fun to drive. Mel Kendricks, director of marketing with ValueMax in Newnan, said among the options are SUVs of all sizes, as well as trucks, including the Titan. Whether a quick weekend getaway or a beach vacation, you can also find a snappy sports car to play in. ValueMax has cars available for daily and weekly rentals and another perk is they do not charge for mileage.

"A vacation is what you take when you can no longer take what you've been taking." ~ Earl Wilson

Leather and cowhide skin are summer attire and accessories Gillyweeds

Circa Antiques I am sure that almost all of you would think that leather jackets and pants are only for the fall and winter. But that is no longer the case. Even down here in the South, leather is fine anytime of year. And that’s not just suede pants or leather jackets. Cowhide purses and totes and cowhide jackets are as popular as ever. Check out the purses and clutches at Circa Antiques in Tyrone and by Carol Hamlin at Gillyweeds in downtown Newnan.

Bicycling, running & walking safety on old country roads

A timeless trend is walking and riding bikes on our old country roads. But I am always concerned about people on these back roads. Trash cans and mail boxes are often in jeopardy of being hit, but they are nothing compared to a human life. I cannot even begin to tell you how many people I see wearing dark clothes at night. You may not want to wear bright colors, but safety comes first. Dragonfly Running sells lights for shoes as well as reflective wear that help for that night time ride, run or walk. Remember, safety first.

with Angela

It’s Blueberry Time! Many years ago now, I had the pleasure of house-sitting for my friends Art and Ruth Schroeder of Newnan when they were off on one of their many jaunts across the country. My friend Ruth had beautiful gardens that needed tending—she’s one of those women who can smile at a plant and it grows a foot—so I knew that keeping her beloved plants alive would be part of my duties. I received lists of what needed watering when and how much. One plant might need “just a little drink,” while others needed “a good soaking.” But the best of the instructions informed me that I could feel free to pick and eat all the blueberries I wanted while I was there. Blueberries? In Georgia? Indeed, the Schroeder gardens had lush blueberry bushes that were producing quite nicely during my time at their home, and I plucked and ate the sweet berries to my heart’s content. Ruth was born on an island in Maine, and I have always loved to hear about her life there and about Maine’s legendary blueberry crop. I’m not sure I had ever seen a live blueberry bush until that time of house-sitting for my friend, but today, I’m aware blueberries grow quite well in Georgia. About the time the caramel craze hit our country, I began to notice that recipes with “brown sugar” in the title were all the rage, and I wondered if I could find one that included brown sugar and blueberries. When I couldn’t, I experimented until I came up with a recipe I liked. Now who doesn’t like blueberries? They’re perfectly packaged, they come in a beautiful color, and they’re a good source of Vitamin C and fiber. And each July Fourth, how on earth would we make all those American flag cakes without blueberries to represent the stars on the flag? Eating blueberries straight off the bush is my favorite way to partake, but when that’s not feasible, these muffins are a yummy way to enjoy any extras you might have picked.

Recipe

Blueberry & Brown Sugar Muffins • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour • 3/4 cup granulated sugar • 1/2 teaspoon salt • 2 teaspoons baking powder • 1 tablespoon cinnamon • 1/3 cup vegetable oil • 1 large egg • 1/3 to 1/2 cup milk (I used 2-percent milk) • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla • 1 cup fresh blueberries • About 1/3 cup brown sugar, or as desired

SENIOR LIVING ADVICE

In an instant, I became a caregiver. Now what? Most often the role of caregiving is not something that comes to us slowly. It hits us abruptly, after a loved one’s illness, fall or hospital stay. If you have just begun this caregiver journey, you may not know how you are going to do this especially since your plate is already full. How do you gain the confidence you need to do this caregiving thing and do it right? You take it one step at a time. First. You need to pull up every bit of courage and patience you have from your toe nails and tell yourBeth Dow self YOU CAN DO THIS! You may have doubts, you may not know how, but you can survive this. Next. Learn everything you can about the illness or injury that your loved one has. Read, Google and go to workshops. Third. Call a mandatory family conference. This can be in person, by phone or by Facetime. The purpose of this call is to get everyone on the same page – this is what we are dealing with, this is what it means, and I cannot do it alone. I am going to survive this and I need your help to do so. If you need help with this conversation ask a trusted friend, pastor or a Geriatric Case Manager. Fourth. Run do not walk to your nearest Elder Law Attorney, Financial Advisor, Banker and VA specialist.

You need to know what financial resources are available to help with care. You need to know if name changes on property, bonds, etc., need to happen. You need to make sure all your legal paperwork – wills, trusts, power of attorney – are in order. If your loved one is a veteran, you need to know what is available to them. Fifth. Commit to not doing this alone. Caring for someone does not mean that you provide 100 percent of the care. The best care you can give your loved one may not be the care you provide. How many super heroes have you seen save the world all on their own? You have got to let someone else help. Sixth. Do not isolate. Isolation is one of the most damaging effects that caregiving has on the caregiver. Continue to go to church, go out with friends and find a support group. Seventh. Consider that your loved one may not be the only one that needs to be medicated. Caregiving is stressful. One doctor said that 97 percent of all illnesses could be traced back to stress. You have got to survive this – for yourself and for your loved one. Go to your doctor, get a checkup and get on something to help you with anxiety, stress and depression. And last. Don’t forget to laugh. It has been proven that laughter improves your mood and helps the chemicals in your brain maintain balance. Caregiving is hard but you can do this ... one step at a time.

The board also approved a final amended FY 2018 budget during the June 26 called meeting.  Approval of $264,658,903 final budget (including a final general fund budget of $206,547,755)

closed out the Coweta County School System 2017-18 fiscal year. The FY 2019 General Fund budget of $209 million is funded principally by state revenues and local property tax revenues.

Newnan native Lindsey Hand Barron founded Lindsey’s, Inc. in 1948 when he purchased the Austin Appliance Company, holding the Westinghouse Appliance franchise in Newnan. The R.E.A. was just coming into Coweta County, so many people had no electricity, appliances, well pumps or wiring. The demand was great and the supply of good and electrical contractors was limited due to the aftermath of WWII. Starting with one truck and two electricians, the business quickly grew to include not only electrical, plumbing, heating and air-conditioning, but furniture and appliances as well as the Pepsi Cola franchise in 13 counties. In 1958, Lindsey’s Inc. moved from LaGrange Street to the building now occupied by the Newnan Times-Herald, Lindsey Barron began selling off the original businesses, focusing on real estate and insurance.

First two Joe Sherwood Memorial Scholarships are presented to Arnall Middle School students

On May 18, 2018, the first two recipients of the Joe Sherwood Memorial Scholarship were announced during an awards ceremony at Arnall Middle School. They are Kali Patel and Isabel Rios Rodriguez. Last fall, the Joe Sherwood Memorial Scholarship Fund was established with the Coweta Community Foundation in memory of a young man whose big smile and caring ways touched many lives. Joseph Clay Sherwood was the son of Cindy Sherwood and Mitch and Melinda Sherwood, and Joe passed away on May 7, 2017 at age 23. His father, Mitch Sherwood, thought of the scholarship fund as a way to honor his son’s memory. Sherwood himself presented the Arnall Middle School students, who were recipients of the school’s Noble Knight Award, with their scholarships. When Joe was an eighth grader at Arnall Middle School, he and his family were surprised when he was announced as the recipient of the school’s first Noble Knight Award. The school mascot is the knight, and the Noble Knight Award was designed to recognize “a student who has wholeheartedly assisted another in a noble and selfless way.” One reason Joe won that award, according to his father, is that he had befriended Ryan Carter, a classmate with cerebral palsy. Ryan and Joe had met on the first day of middle school in the sixth grade. “They became fast friends, and Joe treated Ryan like any other student,” Sherwood said. “They went deer hunting together, rode ATVs together, and even rode a Jet Ski together at our lake

house. It was through this relationship that the teachers and administration at Arnall decided to award the Noble Knight Award, and Joe was the first recipient.” After Joe graduated from East Coweta High School, he attended Georgia Southern. Joe suffered from addiction, his father said, noting, “The disease of addiction runs in our family.” Later, Joe passed away following an accidental drug overdose. That passing, however, was not the true Joe, according to his father. He noted that his son was an athlete who enjoyed wrestling, football and lacrosse, and he was also someone who never met a stranger. Because the Noble Knight Award meant so much to Joe, the Sherwood family decided to present a minimum $1,500 college scholarship each year to the winner of the Noble Knight Award at Arnall Middle School. The funds will be held in trust with the Coweta Community Foundation for the student to receive during his or her senior year of high school as they prepare to continue their education at a technical college or university. At the awards ceremony, two Noble Knight Award winners were named this year, so Kali Patel and Isabel Rios Rodriguez each received a $1,000 scholarship. “I am very proud of Kali and Isabel for winning the Noble Knight Award and am honored to present them with the first Joe Sherwood Memorial Scholarship,” Sherwood said. “They honor Joe by their actions and helping fellow students in a noble and selfless way.” Also on hand for the ceremony was Joe’s friend Ryan Carter, and he spoke to the youth using a voice system

Following the awards ceremony where the first two Joe Sherwood Memorial Scholarships were presented are, from left, Mitch Sherwood, Ryan Carter, and scholarship recipients Kali Patel and Isabel Rios Rodriguez. he operated with his eyes. His remarks were “truly inspirational,” Sherwood said, noting that Ryan received a standing ovation. “We are so pleased to see the Sherwood family get to present these first scholarships in memory of Joe,” said Coweta Community Foundation Board Chair Will Conoly. “It’s a great way to honor the memory of a young man who clearly touched a lot of lives.” For more information about the scholarship fund, please contact the Coweta Community Foundation at 770-2531833 or email info@cowetafoundation.org.

The Film Fix

… Where film buffs get their fix with Jonathan W. Hickman

Capsule Reviews. (Rating System - A “Fix" is recommended and a “No Fix” isn’t.) Films in Release: Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom … V No Fix RATING “Fallen Kingdom” is a new low in the series.

What could have been another “John Wick” or “Purge” just kind of petters out. And this is a real shame, because Foster and Bautista make a great pair. H H H H H American Animals … Fix RATING

Some years after the tragic events chronicled in 2015’s “Jurassic World,” the man-made dinosaurs once again control the island. But a volcano now threatens their existence, promising yet another extinction level event (at least for them). Congress debates whether to intervene. We get an extended cameo featuring series veteran Dr. Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum) in which he once again spouts the most logical course of action— let them die on the island. Meanwhile, an ecological group led by Claire Dearing (Bryce Dallas Howard) is lobbying to save the dangerous creatures. And when Dearing’s political efforts fail, her team is recruited by billionaire Benjamin Lockwood (James Cromwell) and his second in command Eli Mills (Rafe Spall) to relocate a number of the animals to a new island. Of course, there are sinister forces at play that promise to ruin everything. Or do they? Frustrating and, at times, non-sensical to the extreme, “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom” fails to capitalize on the promise hinted at with the last flawed, but fun, installment. H H H H H Hotel Artemis … Fix RATING

When Waikiki (Sterling K. Brown) and his brother Honolulu (“Atlanta’s” Brian Tyree Henry) botch a robbery during a massive Los Angeles riot, they turn to the Hotel Artemis to patch them up. A private emergency room housed within the decaying walls of an old hotel, the Artemis was set up to service the medical needs of criminals. Run by The Nurse (Jodie Foster) and her dutiful, bulked up orderly named Everest (Dave Bautista), the nasty looking place features some high-tech medicine. And while Waikiki and Honolulu (named after rooms in the hotel) are mortally injured, The Nurse is more than capable of plugging up the worst of the worst. While the futuristic setup is great and the characterizations by Bautista and Foster engaging, “Hotel Artemis” doesn’t really know what to do with them. The final sequences feel rushed and utterly contrived. While not as bad as 2010’s “Repo Men,” things do get a bit wacky and gruesome. It’s all a bit of a letdown, although getting there is fun.

July Releases to Watch Out For: July 6 Ant-Man and the Wasp This locally shot Marvel entry showcases the lighter side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe following up to 2015’s fun “Ant-Man.” And as hinted at in the first film, Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) indeed gets help in the form of The Wasp/Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly). These heroes can get really, really small, but The Wasp’s suit allows her to take flight. And they’ll do battle with a mysterious character known as the Ghost. Count me in for this big and little comedic superhero adventure. H H H H H The First Purge

Part documentary, part thrilling narrative feature, Bart Layton’s cautionary tale takes a real life event and uses the event’s actual players to explain and dramatically recreate a terribly stupid crime. When college students Spencer Reinhard (Barry Keoghan) and Warren Lipka (Evan Peters) decide to spice up their lives by committing a little heist, they have no idea what they are really doing. They have a simple plan to steal priceless library books, but it’s not a crime to be carried out by criminals-in-training. And bringing in a couple other clueless students (including a jock played well by Blake Jenner) doesn’t help. As things go from bad to worse to worser, these youngsters find their future slipping farther and farther out of reach. “American Animals” relies on a hybrid approach by using documentary style interviews with the real perpetrators (Lipka, Reinhard, Allen, and Borsuk) to tell the story of a botched robbery from four different points of view. It’s a fascinating followup for filmmaker Layton, whose last film was the fantastic “The Imposter.” H H H H H

Great work by Jodie Foster and Dave Bautista isn’t enough to fully elevate “Hotel Artemis,” a futuristic action thriller set in a members-only emergency room for high end criminals. But it is fun to see all the pieces assembled by writer turned director Drew Pearce (“Iron Man 3”) in his feature film debut.

Ginsburg, a love fest works best when the character in focus is rich, textured, and undeniably interesting. This is a film that, while a must for fashionistas, will also work for fashion novices. H H H H H

The Gospel According to André … Fix RATING

The biscuit is part of the South. And André Leon Talley’s southern background, partially linked to his love of his grandmother’s cooking, helped usher him into the center of the fashion universe. It’s something he hasn’t forgotten. A style guru and journalist, Talley is profiled well by Kate Novack in the documentary “The Gospel According to André.” Raised by his strong-willed grandmother, we learn a lot about his unique perspective as Novack gives Talley the mic. It is a fashionable life narrated by the man himself and many of the towering designers of the fashion age. Like “RBG” released earlier this year, “Gospel” is in love with its subject. But like that profile of Ruth Bader

The “Purge” franchise continues with a prequel. Series creator James DeMonaco, who is still on board as writer, hands over directing duties to Gerard McMurray (producer of the excellent “Fruitvale Station”). “The First Purge” deals with the events leading up to the initial violent governmental policy of nationwide purging. The always watchable Marisa Tomei stars. H H H H H July 20 Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again The original cast of the hit “Mamma Mia!” return this time to celebrate Sophie’s pregnancy. But even with a cast this big, with loads of star-power (Meryl Streep, anyone?), in a sing-a-long fantasy, nothing could be bigger than the return of Cher to the big screen to play one hot grandma. H H H H H July 27 Mission: Impossible - Fallout This is the sixth “Mission: Impossible” feature film. And it still stars ageless male Tom Cruise, as edgy hero Ethan Hunt, a mysterious spy among spies. 2011’s “Ghost Protocol” effectively rebooted the series that has been very lucrative for Paramount and Cruise, a producer from day one. In “Fallout,” Hunt and his IMF team take on a nuclear threat. It’s a mission that is pretty impossible. Cruise does most of his own stunts! H H H H H

Ask your County Agent Stephanie R. Butcher

County Coordinator Agricultural & Natural Resources Agent UGA Extension – Coweta County

Q. A shiny green bug is eating my roses. I applied an insecticide, but it didn’t work. How can I get rid of this pest? It’s destroying my beautiful flowers.

A

. Proper identification of an insect is important, especially when you are wanting to get rid of it. Not all insects are made the same. Some insects have chewing mouthparts, some have piercing/sucking mouthparts and still others are borers. That’s why there are so many different insecticides out there. Although it can be tempting to run to the store and apply the first thing you find with a bug on the label, the first thing you should do is get a positive identification of the pest. Not all insecticides work on all insects. Make sure that the product you choose is labeled for your particular pest.

It sounds like you have Japanese beetles, but to be sure, you can bring a sample of the insect to the Coweta County Extension office (in a sealed container preferably in rubbing alcohol) or you can take a picture of the insect and email it to uge2077@ uga.edu. Adult Japanese beetles, like the ones shown in the image from my own knockout roses, are chewing insects. They live four to six weeks, lay eggs (mostly in mid-August) and die. If the soil is sufficiently moist like it is right now, the eggs will swell and produce larvae in about two weeks. The rest of the year, the beetles live underground in a larval stage feeding on the roots of grass and other plants before maturing into adult beetles in the summer. Japanese beetle larvae are plump, C-shaped white grubs often seen in the spring when garden soil is first tilled. The grubs need soil moisture to survive the winter. Frequently irrigated lawns and landscapes tend to have higher grub populations.

Controlling the grub stage generally has little effect on the overall damage caused by adult beetles since adults can fly into your landscape from up to a mile away. Most homeowners rarely have grub populations large enough to cause damage to home lawns. Treatment may be necessary if more than five to ten grubs per square foot are present in lawns. Late summer and early fall insecticide applications are most effective at killing young grubs. The key to controlling Japanese beetles is to catch them early in May or June. For small infestations, you can handpick or knock adult beetles off plants and drown them in soapy water. This is an effective control option for managing small infestations and preventing them from attracting more beetles. If your life is crazy busy like most of us, and you don’t notice these pests until half of your rose bushes are infested in July, then they can be controlled with carbaryl, which is sold under the trade name, Seven. Read and follow the pesticide label’s application rates and safety precautions. If you don’t like the idea of using a spray, then you can use traps. Phermone traps work, but they tend to attract more beetles to the area than would normally be present. Don’t put them in your garden or near your ornamentals. Place them in an area that will lure beetles away from your prize plants. For more information about common landscape pests and how to get rid of them, call the Coweta County Extension office at 770-254-2620 and ask for the publication, “Control of Common Pests of Landscape Plants”.

Attention – Is Your Advertising Working Against You? It’s more than getting attention. Advertising is about building a connection between what your offer and the people who potentially need or want it. There must be a connection.

Made in America

Today’s media, regardless of the source, are inundated with automobile ads. You might be in the market for a new car or truck. But does 30-seconds of advertising help you decide? Does the intrusion of the same advertising spot over and over and over help in your decision to visit the dealer?

When I was in the car sales industry, each time a new buyer walked into the dealership we needed to discover which of the four attributes of a vehicle was most important to that customer?

1 2

Performance – Did the vehicle provide the performance the customer wanted or expected.

Safety – What features made the vehicle safe? Who’s safety is the buyer concerned about? His daughter heading to college? His wife and three children? Her own safety for driving within a major metro area?

3

Price or payment – Can the buyers feel the “win” in getting a great price? Is the monthly payment the lowest it can be? Can you meet their payment goal, or at the least, come close?

Styling and aesthetics –Is the customer trying to make a fashion statement, do they love the styling of the vehicle, and will they “feel good” about driving the vehicle? Whether a business woman looking for a luxury model or a southern good ol’ boy needing a 4-wheel drive mudhole jumper, what are they looking for and can you meet their need? Notice that advertising for attention drives none of these. What works is a campaign to address specific attributes for each specific buyer. This also requires the advertiser to select media channels which best target the prospective type of buyer. Focused content is imperative. Including something that fits every type of buyer dilutes the intended impact and thus the ROI. A buyer looking for styling may also be interested in the performance, and a person interested in a low monthly payment may also want safety. But, in the end one might overrule another. You need to know your buyer and what attribute/feature is MOST important to her or him.

How many types of customers do you have in your industry? Is your marketing and advertising message targeted through the right media asset with the most engaging or relevant message? Are you diluting your impact with cliché driven content or are you actually creating a conversation with your message? Are you engaging or repelling? Has your message been heard so often it becomes background noise or redundant? Are you part of the clutter, or do you truly offer a solution? And, is that point getting for Trainees! through? All these Call for details questions are imperative to successful engagement and business growth.
