A couple of years ago, we were looking for a new refrigerator/ freezer. We ended up with one of those “top-of-the-line” models. That’s just code to let you know there will probably be one too many “zeros” in the price tag. But this one looked really nice on the outside, and very cool on the inside. “Inside” being only what you could see - I’m playing off that whole “beauty is only skin deep” adage here. Anyway, the nice sales reps or whatever they are called these days somehow convinced me to buy the extended warranty for some absurd price. That was the only positive thing that ever occurred with this Icebox from Hell. It was, as I mentioned earlier, quite stately on the showroom floor. French doors for the refrigerator, followed by the “meat and cheese” drawer and then the freezer. Cubed or crushed ice and purified water accessible on the front. And of course each section could have its own temperature setting. Heck, I think that meat and cheese drawer could have two different settings, for both the left and right side. To speed things up, the ice machine went out three times. It was under warranty for one, the extended warranty for another. Since we would have to shell out for the third, we just started buying bagged ice. One of the drawers on the right side of the refrigerator doors broke four times. On the fourth, we had so much duct tape on it I thought we were safe. Wrong. The handle to the freezer broke off. Ice would thaw and then freeze on the bottom of the freezer. Ever try to open a big frozen drawer? I know, First World Problems right? But at some point, you realize enough is enough. So The Paper Girl went out to find a replacement. And she, as she always does, found quite a bargain at the Newnan-Coweta Habitat for Humanity ReStore. One of the water lines needed to be replaced, but that’s why we have teenage sons for projects like that. The best part was the price - a full “zero” less than the Icebox from Hell. So we have a used refrigerator/freezer. It keeps things that need to be frozen, frozen. It keeps things that need to be cooled, cool. And for the first time in more than a year, I can go right up to it and fill my glass with ice and water. And I don’t have to worry about trying to figure out how to set seven different temperatures. Call this a plug for places like ReStore or over in Peachtree City, A Better Way Ministries. They take all kinds of donations, from clothes to televisions to top of the line gas stoves and yes, refrigerators. They turn around and sell these donations. That money is used to employ people, to help build houses and cover the expenses of various ministries. There are so many incredible local non-profits that could use your help, whether it be money, goods or time. So if you are upgrading your (fill in the blank), consider donating the old model to a local non-profit who would appreciate it. I think most of us have too much stuff. Now is a good time to start letting some of it go to another home. Thanks for investing your time in our publications.

Encouraging Words July 2019 …

“A Very Good Way To Start Your Day!" Do you often wake up feeling tired, worried, negative, overwhelmed and under-appreciated? And maybe you’re just not ready to pile today’s problems on yesterday’s failures? It may be your default mindset. We sometimes start our day with negative thoughts, but it’s just as easy to be positive first thing, and it’s certainly happier. Try some of these strategies – you have everything to gain and nothing to lose. (Except a negative attitude!) First, be thankful for the blessings you DO have right now. Your health, your family, your job, food to eat, a roof over your head, and a clear mind. It’s OK to want more but remember, there are those who have much less. Next, decide to look for something GOOD in every situation. Learn to dismiss the little, petty things that tend to ruin your day, then learn to find at least one thing positive in every situation. It’s usually there somewhere. Decide not to allow other’s negative remarks and actions to make you feel bad today. Just let it go – take the high road, and don’t accept the offense. You’re the better (and happier) person for it! Don’t start your day worrying about what you didn’t accomplish yesterday (or last week or 5 years ago). Today is a new day with new opportunities waiting for those who will chase them! RESOLVE to make this new attitude your new mindset. Everything may not go your way, but you will be much more likely to get more of what you want out of life with a POSITIVE MINDSET. And finally, Pray – ask God to give you the wisdom and ability to become a positive thinking person and how to move forward with the dreams and goals that will make your life a better place to live. . . . Just for today – and everyday! ✵✵✵✵✵✵✵✵

Senoia Area Blood Drive on August 5th … Your blood can help save a life! On Monday, August 5th, you will have an opportunity to give blood in the Fellowship Hall at the Senoia United Methodist Church from 1 to 6 p.m. This blood drive is co-sponsored by the local church and the Senoia Optimist Club. If you are unable to give, you are encouraged to notify others who may be able to donate. The local blood drive hosts will be serving their “famous” grilled cheese sandwiches along with the goodies provided by the American Red Cross. Free coupons associated with several of the Senoia area businesses will also be provided to donors. The Senoia United Methodist Church is in the historic district of Senoia and is located at 229 Bridge Street. It is at the intersection of Seavy and Bridge Streets. For those not familiar with the area, you can turn east at the downtown intersection of Main Street and Seavy Street, and go past Matt’s Smalltown Pizza and the Veranda Bed & Breakfast towards the City Park or State Highway 85. The church is on the right - only about 2 blocks east of Main Street.

Donors at the Senoia blood drive are again asked to bring one or more non-perishable food items. These items will be made available to a local food bank in order to help those around us who are in need. While “walk-ins” are welcome, potential donors may either sign up online at https://www.redcrossblood.org/give.html/ find-drive or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767). There is a need for all blood types. You are encouraged to please schedule an appointment to donate blood or platelets today. The need is constant. The gratification is instant. Give Blood. ™ The Senoia Area blood drive is held at the Senoia United Methodist Church on a quarterly basis. The events traditionally fall on the first Monday of February, May, August, and November. After the upcoming event on August 5th, the next blood drive for the Senoia area and beyond will be November 4th.

Master Gardener Extension Volunteers Train Future Gardeners through “I Can Garden Club” By Marci Moore Coweta Master Gardener Extension Volunteers (MGEVs) love playing in the dirt, but that’s not all they do. They have amazing hearts of gold and reach out to our community to educate, share and help.

MGEVs are not paid or reimbursed for their expenses. The only benefit they get is seeing the smiles they put on the faces of Coweta County residents. Many of these priceless smiles are from beautiful children that are learning from volunteers who share their knowledge, time and love of gardening. Each year the Boys and Girls Club children join the MGEV gardening group through the “I Can Garden Club” where participants learn how to garden by growing and eating their own vegetables. Each child participates in twelve to fourteen sessions with MGEVs. They participate in fun classroom activities, journal about their experiences and then “learn by doing” in their own garden areas. The program helps Boys & Girls Club members focus on health, education and leadership. The “I Can Garden Club” is made possible by donations from Piedmont Hospital & the Kiwanis Club of Coweta County. It includes children ages six to eleven who arrive on buses each week to join their “garden teachers” where they put newly acquired skills and knowledge into action. Participants also enjoy two field trips each year. This year they visited Country Gardens Farm where students delighted in picking sugar peas right out of the garden. The second field trip was a scavenger hunt at the Coweta County Fairgrounds Nature Center and students also visited the Extension greenhouse to learn about growing tomato plants from seed. The group also participates in learning activities like the “String Bean Tasting” which is a tasting contest between fresh cooked, frozen cooked, store bought canned and homemade canned green beans. Guess which ones were the favorite? Of course, the homemade canned green beans were the favorite and participants ate all their green vegetables that day! Their gardens have an annual theme. Since the program began in 2013, they have grown pizza, potato soup, vegetable soup and salsa gardens. This season’s salsa garden ended with a “Chips & Salsa” party where the “I Can Garden Club” finished up the year by learning how to make salsa from the vegetables they had grown. The Boys & Girls Club also hosts an event in Atlanta where the Club shares salsa with neighboring B&G Clubs. Now you see why the Coweta MGEVs were honored by the Boys & Girls Club as the 2018 Volunteer of the Year. Joanne Donahay, the “I Can Garden Club” team leader, said “we are in the community helping.” Joanne has volunteered with the program for five years, has been team leader for three years and is a prime example of why volunteers join this program. They have a heart for serving and want to see future generations become successful gardeners.

Piedmont Newnan adds HALO bassinets to help moms get closer to their newborns From Special Reports

Piedmont Newnan Hospital is helping moms and their babies get closer in a safe, more convenient way, with the addition of 30 HALO Bassinets.

“For most families, the model for their newborn’s care is established in the hospital,” said Ashley Maxwell, director of women’s services at Piedmont Newnan, which delivers roughly 1,300 babies annually. “These bassinets support the hospital’s safe sleep practices while enabling the closeness that a mom desires most in the first few moments with her child.” The sleepers are also beneficial for moms recovering from childbirth, especially cesarean births, as they reduce bending and lifting. Mom can tend to her baby’s needs from her own bed, plus, the clear bedside walls of the HALO Bassinet let moms keep an eye on their babies so they can rest without losing eye contact and physical touch. “It brings the baby closer to mom, promoting bonding, so the mom or partner doesn’t feel they have to bring the baby in their own bed,” Maxwell

… the new bassinets promote skin-to-skin bonding and breastfeeding and empower moms to easily care for their child.

Baby girl Bella is one of the first newborns to use the new Halo bassinet at Piedmont Newnan Hospital.

The new sleepers replace the traditional hospital bassinets and have an adjustable-height, 360-degree swivel design, which allows a mom to position her newborn for safe and easy access for breastfeeding and care.

Surgical Expertise, Comprehensive Care

said. “It puts them at the same level and brings the baby over to mom’s bed so they feel like they’re together. Even when she’s sleeping, she can have the baby right over her at her level.” In addition to providing baby a safe sleep environment and modeling safe sleep practices for parents, the new bassinets promote skin-to-skin bonding and breastfeeding and empower moms to easily care for their child. The HALO Bassinet ensures a safe, comfortable and enjoyable experience for families during their stay and Piedmont Newnan is proud to be the first in the Piedmont Healthcare system to have these bassinets available to all patients.

First Friday Heroes – CCSO Deputies Charlie Hall and Stacy Beckom This month Piedmont Newnan’s First Friday Hero program honors two Coweta County Sheriff Deputies for going above and beyond the call of duty. On the early morning of April 11, a 911 call was placed for an animal concern in Sharpsburg and Coweta County Sheriff Deputy Charlie Hall was dispatched to respond, where he found several cows loose in the roadway creating a traffic hazard. Deputy Hall in coordination with Coweta County Sheriff’s Office Dispatch was able to locate the owner of the animals and the owner and Deputy Hall arrived on scene to get the cows back into the pasture. As the cow’s owner and Deputy Hall got the last cow wrangled in, the man suddenly collapsed falling to the ground and was in visible distress. He had no pulse and was in cardiac arrest. Deputy Hall called in the emergency and proceeded to provide medical aid by beginning CPR on the side of the road. Deputy Stacy Beckom arrived on scene shortly thereafter and assisted Deputy Hall where they continued administering CPR until Coweta Fire and EMS personnel arrived. The man was taken to Piedmont Newnan’s Emergency Department in critical condition where the ED team continued advanced, post arrest care finding the patient to have triple vessel coronary angioplasty. The patient was stabilized and transferred to Piedmont Atlanta Hospital. After a 16-day Critical Care journey, the patient was discharged home and recently underwent open-heart surgery.

Piedmont Physicians Obstetrics & Gynecology Newnan Professional Center 2 is now accepting patients at their new location in Newnan.

The lifesaving efforts by Deputies Hall and Beckom were critical to the survival of this patient during this medical emergency. Their quick response and administering of CPR saved this man’s life. According to the American Heart Association, some 350,000 cardiac arrest cases occur each year outside of a hospital, and the survival rate is less than 12 percent. CPR can double or triple the chances of survival. For their actions, the two deputies recently were honored by the County and presented the Coweta County Sheriff’s Office’s Life Saver Award. We are honored to present Deputies Hall and Beckom with Piedmont Newnan’s First Friday Hero award today. Piedmont Newnan Hospital created the First Friday Hero program in April 2019, which is designed to recognize first responders on a monthly basis who have gone above and beyond the call of duty. Their line of work is often a thankless job and we want to make the community aware of our local heroes and all they do to make Coweta County and our surrounding communities a better and safer place.

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.)

Staycations are as popular as ever

C

Sometimes the best trips require no packing, no luggage and no long rides in cars or airplanes. Staycations continue to be very popular and we are lucky to have so many fun activities so close. For example, there’s the zip line in Banning Mills near Whitesburg, Callaway Gardens in Pine Mountain and the new water park at Wolf Creek Lodge in LaGrange. You could also consider camping or hiking at Chattahoochee Bend State Park or Pine Mountain. You can pop up to Serenbe for a walk at the labyrinth, dinner and overnight at the farmhouse. Ladies why not schedule a massage and/or facial with your girlfriends or guys hit the golf course for a round of golf. Everyone deserves a break. Or visit Senoia for something different. There’s The Inn at the Veranda. While there you can pop over to so many wonderful restaurants that will make you feel you have travelled far from home. Places like McGuire’s Irish Pub, Jimmy Pomodoro’s, Bistro Hilary or The Senoia Coffee House and Cafe.

Many have balked at and put up their nose to faux silk or plastic shrubs. If you are one of those people, that’s okay. But I am here to say faux may be your best bet at your home and no one will be the wiser. Plants look real as real can be. I have some herbs in my kitchen window that look so real my friend watered them.

You can find anything like topiaries, bushes and hanging shrubs. We even have friends who put down astro turf for areas where grass just won’t grow. And until you put your toes on it, you’d never know.

Job titles are getting a makeover If you have read the employment ads lately you just might be shaking your head a bit when you read some job titles. Instead of line cooks, some restaurants are looking for “sandwich artists.” If you are selling clothes then you might be a “brand ambassador” rather than a sales associate or clerk. And when it comes to talking about those at work I certainly use the word “Team” when referring to our staff, but lots like to refer to their group as “The Dream Team.” We will take that one too. And of course stay at home moms are now domestic engineers, supermom, nurse, financial planner, Uber driver and so much more... Needless to say, the times are changing.

Perfecting the perfect summer porch Porches in the South are considered almost a necessity. Ceiling fans, ferns, outdoor rugs and just the right furniture express the look of your home. Whether you want to eat dinner outside or drink mimosas, the porch or veranda is the place to do so in the South. There are many designers and shop owners in our area that can help anyone get started on the summer porch of your dreams. It’s a timeless trend and a gift to yourself and to all who visit.

We are celebrating local business anniversaries Every year a local business stays in business is awesome! They say for every business that opens each year another one closes. So we are excited to celebrate with Duncs Barbeque Kitchen on their first anniversary, Grit and Grace on their fourth, Georgia Peach is also celebrating their first anniversary and Let Them Eat Toffee is on their 10th. Please let us know when you are celebrating your business anniversary.

SENIOR LIVING ADVICE

Generations try to discover that right balance in daily life By Beth Dow Solutions By Beth

The Sandwich Generation was a term first coined by Dorothy A. Miller and Elaine Brody in 1981. At that time, it referred to women in their 30s and 40s who were taking care of their children, but also having to handle the needs of their aging parents while working and trying to manage their own lives. The term has since grown to include both men and women and due to societal changes and an increase in our longevity, is now affecting many generations. The Sandwich Generation still refers to those trying to balance children, parents and jobs, but now also includes balancing grandchildren, retirement, leisure time and the health of the person trying to do it all. The issue doesn’t seem to end or resolve. The Baby Boomer generation (born between 1946 to 1955), has been joined by Generation Jones (born mid-50s to mid-60s) and the Baby Busters Generation (born between mid-60s to 1980). Three generations of people – and a fourth one coming fast – trying to figure out how to do it all and stay healthy. The truth is you can’t. No one can. So, we settle for being stressed out, overweight, over or under medicated, tired, putting our dreams on hold… for just a little while longer. We let promotions or job transfers pass us by. We delay our “second acts” of retirement. We then postpone that “trip of a lifetime.” We allow guilt to control our decisions. We allow close relationships to suffer or let prospective relationships go. We try to make everyone happy then fail at doing so and once again feel guilty. What are we doing?!?! Susan Powter, motivational speaker of the 1990s used to scream, “Stop the Insanity!” I am telling you, it is time to do something different. I often tell folks some variation of this statement, “It is your job, your responsibility, to be sure that a loved one’s needs are taken care of and they are safe. It is not your responsibility to do it by yourself. Sometimes the best care you can give to someone is care that is not provided by you.” Often, staying stuck in a situation is caused by lack of information or lack of time. We don’t know how to find help or we know there is help there but we just don’t have time to research it. There are people who can help you find services: home care, meal preparation, transportation. There are people who can help you find housing and legal help. And there are people who can help you develop a plan that will reduce your stress and guilt. If you would like help in getting connected with someone who can help you, email me at beth@ solutionsbybeth.com. I don’t have all the answers, but I know lots of folks, and I am confident one of them can help you find your answer.

House Rep. David Stover, who represented parts of Coweta County, has resigned his post effective immediately. He cited family reasons. Stover represented District 71 since winning election in 2003.

The Coweta County Board of Education approved a fiscal 2020 budget of $222 million. The approved FY 2020 budget provides a raise to school system employees, and does not project an increase in local property tax rates. The Board of Education has maintained an 18.59 mill property tax rate since first setting it in the summer of 2004.

Don’t you love those articles that list the most popular song or movie from the year you were born? I do, and I came across a similar topic recently on Mashed.com, “The most popular cake the year you were born.” A few of the winners? From 1948-1956, it was Chiffon Cake; from 1957-1960, German Chocolate Cake; and from 1961-1965, my era, it was Pink Champagne Cake, which I had never heard of. In more recent years, the most popular cakes have included everything from cupcakes to cake pops, which I can appreciate but do not consider true cake contenders.

Further researching cake history, I found an article on NPR.org called—I kid you not—“Make America Bake Again,” in which they interviewed cookbook author Anne Byrn about cake history and our love affair with cakes. Among other tidbits she shared, I learned that eggs today are larger than they used to be, so we may need fewer of them to bake a cake than cooks of yesteryear did. In the summertime, I don’t want a heavy, sugary cake, and my taste buds seek something lighter. Perhaps it’s all those fruit stands I passed on the way to the beach as a little girl, but I will always love citrus desserts. Whether it’s ambrosia at the holidays, lemon bars at a ladies’ luncheon, or chicken salad served in orange “cups,” citrus just seems to make a meal brighter. I enjoy trying new recipes that include lemons or oranges, and a few years ago, I came across a recipe for an old-fashioned Orange Cake that was a pleasure to make and a delight to eat. This recipe comes from an old restaurant called the Sun Dial in New Harmony, Indiana, and it dates to the thirties and forties. This cake quickly became a favorite of mine, and if you like citrus, I think you’ll enjoy it!

Q.

There is something slimy growing in my lawn. It looks like big globs of jelly. What is it and how can I get rid of it?

A.

Even though a few weeks ago we went through a dry spell, it looks like the heavy rainfall and humidity is back. With the tropical weather conditions, I have gotten reports of jelly-like substances growing in turf. The jelly-like matter is called Nostoc, a genus of cyanobacterium formerly classified as bluegreen algae. The algae — commonly known as star jelly and witch’s butter, among other names — may appear suddenly in lawns and other turf areas in warm temperatures following a period of rain. It can also be an indication of overwatering if you have an irrigation system. In turf, Nostoc generally emerges on a site where the grass is growing poorly due to severe compaction, overwatering or both. It does not cause the turf to decline or die, but it does colonize areas where it has favorable growing conditions and where the grass was already thin. Poor drainage and compacted soils create a favorable environment for Nostoc. It dries out when moisture or rainfall diminishes, but it has only gone into dormancy. With enough moisture, it will come back to “life.” In its hydrated, gelatinous, green state, it can be a safety hazard because it’s slippery — so be careful walking on it. However, when it dries out, it can restrict turfgrass growth. Nostoc dries into a black crust that can prevent stolons from rooting, or “tacking,” into the soil. This delays the growth and spread of turfgrass. Nostoc can be difficult to control. To discourage its growth, encourage the growth of the grass. Algae is less of an issue with an actively growing turfgrass canopy. The first step is to check the irrigation system to make sure it is watering properly (i.e., not too often or too much). If it rains at least an inch per week, then you shouldn’t need to water your lawn at all. Turfgrass species grown in Georgia actually perform better when grown on the

Photo credit: UGA Cooperative Extension slightly dry side, so scaling back irrigation and adjusting the irrigation schedule will benefit the grass and can discourage algae. The second step is to improve the internal soil and surface drainage. Core aeration opens the soil, allows oxygen into the root system and reduces compaction. Allow the soil surface to dry out, then break up the Nostoc “crust” by cutting the upper ¼- to ½-inch. Breaking the algae into pieces will encourage it to spread. This also permits the turfgrass stolons to root into thin areas and outcompete the Nostoc. With proper irrigation and core aerification, the grass can cover the area where the Nostoc was present and prevent it from coming back. Adapted from information provided by Dr. Clint Waltz, University of Georgia Turfgrass Specialist.

Cut costs during Back-to-School, Back-to-College shopping As summer vacation winds down, families are gearing up for the excitement and expense of back-to-school shopping. Anyone who has browsed the aisles of retail stores during the weeks before school is back in session understands that back-to-school costs definitely add up. Getting all of the recommended items on your child’s school supply list and managing your child’s expectations on items such as shoes, clothing, backpacks and lunchboxes can be pricey, even for those with the financial means to do so. The costs are even higher for college students. Last school year, the National Retail Federation estimated that total spending on back-to-school (K-12) and back-tocollege shopping would reach $82.8 billion. This is more than consumers spend on Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and Valentine’s Day combined. Families were expected to spend $55.3 billion on backto-college shopping, the majority of the spending. Back-to-school shoppers planned to spend an average of $684.79, devoting the most money to clothing ($236.90), followed by $187.10 on electronics such as computers, calculators or phones, $138.66 on shoes and $122.13 on supplies such as notebooks, pencils, backpacks and lunch-

While each giveaway is different, families can often walk away with backpacks, pencils, notebooks and more.

Make a List Have a plan when you go to the store or you might be tempted to buy all sorts of items that you don’t really need. Make a list of the essential items, particularly when back-to-college shopping. Stick to your list and your budget. If you’re low on funds, determine which items you definitely need to purchase now and which ones can wait until later.

boxes. Youth heading to college, along with current college and graduate students, planned to spend an average of $942.17, with electronics listed as the biggest expense. Don’t let your hard-earned money go down the school supply drain. Here are some ways to save on back-to-school and back-to-college shopping:

Look for Deals Monitor weekly sales ads, either print or online, and compare prices. Shoppers can find deals on back-to-school items at grocery stores, discount retailers, office supply stores and department stores. They can also learn about upcoming sales on retailers’ social media accounts. Don’t forget about discount stores such as Dollar Tree, Big Lots, Ollie’s Bargain Outlet and Roses Express that regularly offer low prices. In addition, don’t underestimate thrift and secondhand stores, such as Goodwill, and yard sales, which often have new and gently used children’s shoes and clothing at great prices.

Find School Supply Giveaways Many churches and nonprofit organizations offer school supply giveaways in the weeks leading up to the start of school. It can be challenging to find out the dates of these giveaways far in advance, so stay on the lookout for church signs or announcements in The Shopper or other local news outlets. Also, ask around and see if friends and family have heard about any giveaways.

Stock Up This is a great time of year to find deals on school supplies, so stock up while items are on sale. However, make sure you’re not buying items that your child won’t need. Recycle Past Items Recycle past school supplies, if possible. Take inventory of items purchased last year and reuse the ones that are in good condition. Trade with Friends If you find leftover items from last year that your child won’t need to use this school term, ask other parents who have schoolaged children if they have extra school supplies and would like to make a trade. Maybe you have extra notebook paper and can swap it for another family’s pencils. Wait to Buy New Clothing The back-to-school shopping season isn’t the best time to save on your child’s wardrobe, according to Consumer Reports. Clothing prices typically fall in September after the big shopping rush. To save money on clothing, buy your child a new outfit or two and wait until prices are reduced. Parents can also save on clothing at resale or secondhand clothing stores.

The Staging Life with Nan Johnston

The Ugly Tub “There once was a lovely home in a lovely neighborhood with a lovely floor plan and an UGLY TUB!” Seriously, we all know that Kitchens and Bathrooms are what sells a house. If they look bad or don’t function well, the house will take longer to sell and won’t bring top dollar. So what’s a seller to do? Do they need to replace the tub or shower at a huge expense, or is there an easier less expensive solution? Good news, you don’t have to empty the coffers to solve the UGLY TUB problem.

If your bathtub is an ugly color, hard to clean or damaged, they can be repaired or refinished and look brand new. I’m not talking about the kit you can buy at the home repair stores. I’m talking about professionals that do this every day and I’ve seen the results… they are amazing. The process takes up to 2 days, is cost effective and can add years of life to a tub or shower. It will save a seller up to 75% of replacement cost and your prospective buyers will love the new look…maybe enough to make an offer. This is not an advertisement for any particular method or company, however, I’ve seen the results and used this solution several times and it saved me $$$$!

Spider-Man: Far From Home

Once Upon a Time ... in Hollywood (July 26)

● Fix Rating 7/10

Billed as Quentin Tarantino’s ninth film (the “Kill Bill” films are collectively counted), this movie generated controversy at Cannes when Tarantino had to answer questions about Margot Robbie’s role. Robbie plays a version of the late Sharon Tate in the film, and when a reporter asked him about her allegedly small number of lines, he rejected the premise of her question. Naturally, this set off a backlash, especially given his former relationship with disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein.

A necessarily “bridgy” affair, “Spider-Man: Far From Home” manages to bring together the traumatic events of “Avengers: Endgame” and hint at what’s next for the MCU. Tony Stark may be no more, but Peter Parker (Tom Holland) still grieves. And even though he just helped save the world, for teen Peter, it’s back to high school. His five-year absence has been described as a “blip.” And “blipped” with him for five years was his best friend Ned (Jacob Batalon), his love interest Michelle “MJ” Jones (Zendaya), and school bully, but Spider-Man super fan, Flash Thompson (Tony Revolori). Along with other teens, they venture to Venice for a summer trip that’s chaperoned by science teacher Mr. Bell (a funny J. B. Smoove) and the bumbling, clueless Mr. Harrington (Martin Starr). Of course, the world will need saving again. And when Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau) tries to get Peter to take an assignment from Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), Pete sends the SHIELD chief to voice mail. But when a new threat emerges in the form of elemental monsters, Spider-Man has to suit up and join forces with new comer superhero Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal). With his friends in tow, the friendly neighborhood wall-crawler goes global. Bursting with youthful exuberance and hipster flare, “Far From Home” is wondrous entertainment. By keeping Parker still in high school, and using the “blip” to keep his core crew intact, what might seem like contrived manipulation holds together nicely. This is a wildly over-the-top comic book adventure, after all, so a little artifice is expected. But what works best is Holland’s boyish charm and innocence. Having lost his father figure in the flawed but heroic Tony Stark, Peter is drifting. His kind (and hot) Aunt May (Marisa Tomei) knows that her boy is hurting, but understands the old adage: “with great power there must also come - great responsibility!” In raising Peter, May certainly did something right, because this is one boy who will adhere to that motto. A joyful adventure that makes us believe in Spider-Man one more time, “Far From Home” capably begins the next phase of the MCU. Annabelle Comes Home

● Fix Rating 7/10

The cold shiver from a dead-eyed doll effectively extends the Conjuring universe. When demonologists Lorraine and Ed Warren (played by Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson) take possession of the demonic doll Annabelle, they are forced to put in place protections aimed at containing its evil. Of course, the doll is placed in the Warrens’ artifacts room in the basement of their suburban home (think a very Brady dwelling). And when they are called away on a job, they have to leave their young daughter, Judy (Mckenna Grace), at home with a babysitter named Mary Ellen (Madison Iseman). Annabelle seizes the moment, and that great terror might be released surrounded by a number of scary spirits just itching to steal your soul. “Annabelle Comes Home” is an expertly crafted jump fest. The scares come quick and extend over the film’s refreshingly brief running time. An improvement over “The Nun,” “Annabelle Comes Home” is a lesser “Conjuring” spin-off but with enough hair-raising bite to keep fans interested until the next “Conjuring” episode drops in 2020.

What to binge: Stranger Things: Season 3 (July 4) - I suspect that families will be binging this popular series over the July 4th holiday. The continuing 1980s set story will lean heavily into the popular culture of the time. The first trailer introduced the retro shopping mall set, and the last trailer teases that this location will be ground zero for much of the action with the townsfolk doing battle against the monster from the upside down place. What movie to watch: Mary Poppins Returns (July 9) This reverent throwback has Emily Blunt taking over from Julie Andrews in the title role of the magical nanny. Director Rob Marshall (“Chicago”) delivers a fine film with musical assistance from Lin-Manuel Miranda (see “Hamilton”). It’s a cheery, vibrant musical, making for delightful, albeit square, family fantasy entertainment. What to avoid: Caddyshack 2/The Pink Panther 2 - These sequels are really the pits. I’ve warned readers about the “Caddyshack” sequel before, but I can’t think of a worse pairing of it with the second “The Pink Panther” movie that came out in 2009. While Steve Martin seemed like an inspired choice for bumbling Inspector Jacques Clouseau (taking over for the late Peter Sellars), he proves to be positively wince-inducing and just not funny.

What to binge: Star Trek - Movies (July 31) - Available on Prime are many of the “Star Trek” films including “Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home,” “Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country,” “Star Trek: First Contact,” “Star Trek: Insurrection,” and “Star Trek: Nemesis.” Highly recommended is “The Voyage Home” and the Next Generation film “First Contact.” This binge will help you get ready for the Captain Picard series, “Star Trek: Picard,” coming to CBS All Access. What movie to watch: Shazam! (July 16) - If the latest Marvel “Spider-Man” entry shows us where the next chapter in the MCU is going, “Shazam” is proof-positive that DC is headed in a similarly goofy direction. And “Shazam” is as fun as anything in the MCU. The sweet story has orphan Billy Batson (Asher Angel) taking control of a great wizard’s power and morphing into superhero Shazam (played by Zachary Levi) just by uttering the film’s title.

But from the trailers, it’s clear that the movie is about two guys, played by Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt. DiCaprio is a fading cowboy star and Pitt is the stuntman and best friend. While attempting to still make it in a changing Hollywood, the two run across Charles Manson and his murderous cult. The film features Tarantino’s typical eclectic actor collection and, sadly, we get the final appearance of beloved actor Luke Perry.

Art House Corner: Midsommar

● Fix Rating 7/10 (July 5)

I’ll defend this one as an almost masterpiece, but viewers be warned, “Midsommar” isn’t your standard horror flick. If you were brave enough to catch writer/director Ari Aster’s last cinematic chiller “Hereditary,” then you might be prepared for this one. By comparison, Aster has gone bigger with this narrative, while still very much focusing on the lingering effects of family trauma and tragedy. When Dani (Florence Pugh) experiences an unspeakable family disaster, she decides to go on a trip with her boyfriend, Christian (Jack Reynor), and his pals. This takes them to an idyllic comune somewhere in rural Sweden. But what was immediately a beautiful paradise slowly is revealed as something still idyllic but at a deadly price. Elements of 1973’s “The Wicker Man” are blended with Aster’s uncompromising and timeless examination of grief and our personal coping methods. “Midsommar” isn’t for the squeamish, but it will certainly stay with you for days thereafter. Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am

● Fix Rating 8/10

What to avoid: Hellboy (2019) - (July 23) - This reboot effectively killed the “Hellboy” franchise. Sadly, it also expended all the goodwill that Guillermo del Toro built with his first two movies featuring the comic book hero. Despite excellent casting of “Stranger Things” star David Harbour and an R rating, this outing of the horned, demonic character is boring, poorly paced, and incompetently designed. Do not pay money for this film! Instead, watch (or rewatch) the first two Hellboy adventures.

What to binge: Veronica Mars - Season 4 (July 26) - The 2004 television series starring Kristen Bell gets a fourth season. The show, originally aimed at the YA crowd, had the young Veronica helping her private detective father solve crimes. After three seasons, the critically regarded series was cancelled. But in 2013, star Bell and creator Rob Thomas revived “Mars” as a feature motion picture by raising much of the production budget on the crowd-source platform Kickstarter. This new season spans 8 episodes.

(playing now) - This incredibly detailed and informative documentary about one of America’s finest writers will make you want to pick up several of Morrison’s novels. Much of the film is told in the author’s own words, as she sits down with filmmaker Timothy Greenfield-Sanders for a series of detailed interviews. One story that hit me was the writer talking about a letter she received from a prison informing her that one of her books was banned out of fear that it might cause a riot.

You wanna fly, you got to give up the thing that weighs you down. ~ Toni Morrison
