With more than 30 years in the journalism world, I have been fortunate to interview a wide variety of fascinating people. There have been countless senators and congressmen, CEOs of Fortune 400 companies, governors, and self-made multi-millionaires. I’ve also interviewed well known sports athletes and even Famous Amos and Mr. Personality. It was interesting how all those who succeeded seemed to impart very similar pearls of wisdom. I’ve kept those notes, and occasionally, will write letters to our three boys, affectionately known as the SONS of Thunder around these parts, when something monumental happens. With Eldest SON, along with hundreds more, graduating high school this year, I thought it appropriate to share some wisdom from some incredibly successful people I’ve met. Keep your word. Seriously, just do it. If you can’t make a promise and keep it, then don’t make the promise. And that includes agreeing to climb Mt. Everest or meet at noon for lunch. Your word is your bond, or it’s not. Take responsibility. If it is your mistake, take responsibility for it - and then fix it. Get into the habit of, at least mentally, signing your name to everything you do. Learn these phrases: “Thank you,” “Please,” and “I’m sorry.” You learned these in kindergarten, they are still relevant. These are just common courtesies, sorely lacking today. Credit cards: Avoid credit card debt like the plague. This time of debt is life-sucking. Writing: Learn the power of the handwritten note. If your writing resembles chicken scratch, then write in capital letters. But write. Get yourself some decent stationery with your name at the top. Writing a letter takes time, an incredibly valuable commodity. Money: Learn the 80-10-10 rule. Give 10 percent of your money to worthwhile charities. Save another 10 percent. Live on 80 percent of what you make. Friends: Life is not fair. And you will be judged by the people you associate with. Choose your friends wisely. And if you want great friends, then be one. Put it in writing: One of my father’s greatest mentors told him this line: “Putting things in writing merely reminds gentlemen what they agreed to.” That still holds true. Do your best: Regardless of the task. Be willing to sign your name to your work and look anyone in the eye. More importantly, be you. God created you the way He did. He put you here for a reason. Which leads to … Your purpose: You are unique. You have talents and ideas and dreams no one else does. Discover them. You will find your purpose is tied to … Your passion: A monkey can be taught skills. You cannot teach passion. You have to build it up from inside. What makes you get up in the morning? What puts a smile on your face? What makes you stay later, study hardier, train longer? What’s the one thing you can’t give up? That’s your passion. Do not follow the money: Do, however, follow your passion, find your purpose. The money will come. Always learn: Make it a life goal to learn one new thing every day. Whether it’s how to change the oil in your car, run a nuclear reactor or how to say thank you to the clerk at the gas station in his native tongue. Never stop learning. Ask for directions: Everyone older than you is or has done what you are. Ask for their help. Those who help are called mentors. Learn from them and then become one yourself. Don’t run with scissors: You were taught this in kindergarten and it still holds true. In other words, have fun, but don’t be the guy who says “Hey, hold my beer, watch this.” Believe in yourself. Yes you can. Until next time.

According to the web site www.payingforseniorcare.com, the chance that an older adult will become physically or cognitively impaired in his or her lifetime is 2 in 3. Many people mistakenly assume Medicare will pay for all long-term care such as home care, personal care, assisted living and nursing care, but this is not the case. Since there are strict limits to what Medicare covers, more and more seniors consider purchasing long-term care insurance to defray such costs. Here are some important things to know about long-term care insurance:
• The cost of a long-term care policy is determined by many factors, including your age, health history and status; type of policy, desired rate of coverage, inclusion of inflation protection, and coverage term, to name a few. • Insurance may cover all or part of the cost of care, but it does not answer other important questions such as, “Where will I receive excellent care?” and “Who will manage my caretakers if I am unable to do so?” • Numerous long-term care funding options exist. Five to investigate are 1. standalone comprehensive 2. a rider to a cash value life insurance policy 3. an either/or life insurance package with a death benefit or stipulated care benefit 4. a single premium deferred annuity 5. a combined disability insurance option. • A policy typically has “benefit triggers” that must be met in order for you to qualify for reimbursement. • Be sure to ask if your plan is tax-qualified or non-tax qualified. There are many online resources for long-term care insurance information. Start your research with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services educational site at www.longtermcare.gov

Looking Back with Joe Williams
“Always Maintain Your Dignity!” Your Ad Could Be Here email@example.com
No matter how much we seem to “have it together”, exuding that look of perfection and dignity, there are times when we find ourselves in an awkward and embarrassing situation. I’m reminded of the inspector in the Pink Panther movie who was constantly falling or knocking something over, then immediately jumping up and changing the subject. He was a master at “maintaining his dignity!” “I meant to do that!” he would say. Taking a fall in public is bad enough, but when your wig falls off during the spill, then you really have to be creative to make a “come back.” I remember my late friend the optometrist who slipped on a patch of ice on the sidewalk. After retrieving his hairpiece, he placed it on his head, jumped up and walked away as if nothing had happened. It was on backwards! While fishing with some friends, a fellow made a quick cast over his head, the hook picking up his toupee in the process and sending it out into the water. He “saved his dignity” by reeling in the soaked hairpiece, removing it from the hook and giving it a good spanking! “Don’t ever do that again!” was his charge to the dripping wig! I don’t (yet) wear a hairpiece but I have had my share of embarrassing moments. Years ago, my banker and I were in my office discussing a possible business loan. I had just finished a business book that suggested one should always look and act more important than one’s opponent across the desk, taking the stance that “I’m doing you a favor if I do business with you.” In playing the role of a (self proclaimed) “Big Shot”, I leaned back in my big, important looking office chair, looking at the ceiling as being in deep thought. Without warning, a metal pin snapped off the chair’s swivel base, sending us (I and the chair) tumbling backwards and completely up side down on the floor! (I on the floor, the chair on me!) The banker removed the chair, helped me to my feet and eventually did the deal – on his own terms. About all I could say was, “I’ll be needing a new chair, too!” And the second thing I did was to throw away that, so called, business book! A few months later I made a spectacular entrance for a scheduled appointment in that same building. The receptionist rang my second floor office saying there were three people waiting to see me. “Tell them I’ll be down
in a flash.” As I remember, there were about fifteen steps to the bottom of the stairs entering the reception area. On or about step number three, I slipped and went tumbling down the stairs like a clown in the circus, all the way to the bottom, coming to a halt right at the feet of my prospective customers. From my prone position, I extended my hand saying, “Hi, I’m Joe Williams - I came down as quickly as I could!” I think they were as embarrassed as I was, if that were possible. This time, my body and my dignity were both bruised. But I maintained my dignity as we went up to my office where I sat in my “big shot’s” chair, now repaired! We can all think of stories about ourselves and others who have done silly and embarrassing things, making us want to be invisible. Like my friend the bank president locking himself in the trunk of his car, or our popular solicitor whose pants fell off in court! My customer’s wooden leg fell off while we were walking, and my bathing trunks were lost while getting started on an old jet ski! And on and on. But the most important thing is to “maintain our dignity” in all circumstances. And if all else fails, just say, “I meant to do that!

Welcome blueberry season with Blueberry Crumb Bars Is there any fruit that’s more delicious than a fat, ripe blueberry plucked right off the bush? How I love that perfect little burst of blueberry goodness when I pop a fresh blueberry into my mouth. For many years, I didn’t even realize we could grow blueberries here in Georgia. Like others, I believed that blueberries were strictly a northern crop. Then I began to discover blueberries growing in friends’ gardens here in Coweta County. A few years ago, when my parents moved into a new home in Tallapoosa, we were all delighted to discover that huge blueberry bushes were already growing on the property, so now I have the pleasure of enjoying fresh blueberries each year. And in a curious twist for the Peach State, Georgia’s number one fruit crop is no longer peaches but blueberries! The value of blueberry production first beat the peach crop back in 2005, and that gap has been widening ever since, according to officials with the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The Georgia Blueberry Commission says that Georgia’s soil is sandy and acidic, the perfect environment for growing blueberries. Georgia is said to have the
largest amount of good blueberry soil in the Deep South, and this soil is highly concentrated in South Georgia. Our climate, too, is ideal for growing blueberries since our short winters provide the chill that blueberries need, followed by those warm spring and summer temperatures. I’ve sprinkled blueberries on salads, sipped blueberry-flavored tea, and baked everything from blueberry pound cake to blueberry quick breads, blueberry muffins, and one of my favorite uses for blueberries, these Blueberry Crumb Bars. I adapted a recipe I found online because I didn’t like its emphasis on lemon flavorings, which I don’t want to compete with the taste of the blueberries. The result? Imagine the love child of a bar cookie and a cobbler, and you’ll have a good idea of what these easy Blueberry Crumb Bars taste like.

Meet Master Gardener Donna Dietz
Page 8 ❦ The SHOPPER ❦ June 14, 2017 ❦ www.thecowetashopper.com
by Kim Magyar, Coweta MGEV
Donna and Dan moved from Miami to Newnan 32 years ago due to a job transfer. Donna says gardening in Georgia was quite a change from the year round growing season of South Florida. Donna learned about the Coweta County Master Gardener Extension Volunteer program from the local paper and completed the program in 2007. While Donna says that Dan is a “natural” gardener and that it is second nature for him to plant a vegetable garden, Donna enjoys pulling weeds saying it’s therapy and she likes the instant gratification and results. Donna was Coweta County Master Gardener of the Year in 2011, and she is known in the Master Gardener group for the rich and profuse planters that she starts for
SHOPPER Real Estate New Construction Homes in Coweta County
As I am about to interview this month’s gardener, Donna Dietz, Donna’s husband Dan teases that she has “really been looking forward to this interview and the picture taking session.” Donna offers Dan up for the interview saying he would be a much better interview subject. They are serious yet playful with each other and I can tell they are great gardening partners. Our interview takes place on the veranda of her 1870’s home where we are surrounded by large, old trees and overlook her 2 ½ acre yard, which was also on the Spring Garden Gate Tour in 2012 hosted by the Coweta County Master Gardener Extension Volunteers, southern elegance describes this lovely home. The veranda is colorful and calming with a blue and white color scheme and many lush potted plants that wave in the breeze. Donna grew up in Northern Virginia and South Georgia saying that both locales were great--in Arlington, Virginia you were close to the big city of Washington, D.C. with National Gallery of Art and the museums of the Smithsonian; in small town Jesup, Georgia you were close to people--your parents knew what you did during the day before you walked in the door. Donna had 8 siblings and she was the child that enjoyed yard work and the finished results of her weeding, trimming, and mowing. I observe that the yard of her dignified Greenville Street home is proof of her lifelong enjoyment of yard care and maintenance.
The real estate market in Coweta County is booming! New construction is a positive sign that the local economy is healthy and Coweta is loaded with new homes right now. There are currently 212 new single family detached homes for sale (per GAMLS on 5.30.17) that were built, in 2017, or being constructed. New construction prices range from $139,000, in Belmont Park (Newnan), to $797,000, in Arbor Springs (Newnan).
our annual spring/fall plant sale every year held at the Coweta Extension Greenhouses. Donna’s planters are eye-catching and are among the first items to sell when the doors open on sale day. In addition to Donna actively helping organize the Coweta plant sale each year she is also involved in our local youth education and Boys & Girls club in Newnan. Donna’s yard is on an old pecan grove and the extremely large, ancient pecan, magnolia, mulberry, and osmanthus trees are akin to earthly sculpture and build the base of her yard. She and Dan have added a variety of foundation plantings over the years, learning from trial and error and the knowledge of other Master Gardeners. While she has lost some shade over the years from having to prune large limbs from the trees, Donna has a variety of shade loving hostas, along with hydrangea and azalea, and the plants beautifully “frame” her historic home.
There is new construction being built in established neighborhoods like Arbor Springs, Lake Redwine, Madison Park, Northgate Preserve and Savannah Woods. Newer developments like Newnan Cotton Mill, are also coming along with new homes. The Gordon Rd area, with new construction in developments like Kindlewood and Gordon Estates, has seen a significant amount of activity. Senoia is a very hot area right now also. There is new construction, in the following subdivisions, just to name a few: Fieldstone, Fox Hall, Heritage Pointe. These homes range from the mid $200,000’s to the low $400,000’s.
There are so many places to sit and relax in this wonderful garden – a glass of sweet tea, a good book, a nice breeze, birds singing – what could be better after a long day of volunteering or working in the garden.
When buying new construction, it is important to lean on your agent and the builder’s agent for guidance. The agents will know the process for new construction, as it is very different transaction than a re-sale of a home. Most builders will offer pre and post-closing walkthroughs on your new home. Most builders will offer a warranty on the home. Some builders will offer incentives like paying your closing costs. I have even seen trips and cruises offered, by builders, in some neighborhoods. These are things you certainly want to check for. You can expect a new home to take three to six months, from start to finish, to be completed.

Landscaping or Land “Scaring” It’s time to get those yards in shape for summer selling season! Do you have a nicely landscaped and well maintained yard or are you guilty of looking more like the Adams Family House from the old black and white television show? Let’s get a check list going of the most important task to creating great curb appeal: Shape or trim back unsightly trees and bushes. You don’t want limbs to reach out and grab your buyer as they walk on your walkway to the front door. It may be that some overgrown plants and bushes need to be removed and replaced with smaller fresher plants. Weed flower and plant beds. Do you have a Garden of “Weeden” on your hands? This will require actually getting in there and pulling them out or spraying them with weed killer and then whacking them down with a weed eater. Mulch the beds with fresh wood chips or pine straw, which ever fits your budget and price range best. Be sure
to edge your grass beside the walkways and plant beds to create a crisp look. Add some color to the flower beds with new perennials or annuals. One can never go wrong planting all the same plant or color in the flower bed giving a monochromatic appearance. Clean up outdoor containers and add new plants to them. Or if you don’t have time to manage them while house is on market, sometimes it’s best to remove them all together. Any pots or containers with dead plants need to be tossed. Clean any outdoor furniture and cushions. Although the outdoor cushions are supposed to be fade resistant, they
do tend to fade over time and may need replacing. That’s another great way to add color to the front entrance. Pressure wash outdoor surfaces such as driveways and walkways as well as removing any dirt and grim from exterior siding, gutters, soffits and front door. Make these areas look brand new and don’t forget about the fences and patio areas as well. And I can’t believe that I even have to mention this, but I see it more than I care too…clean out your gutters! Even if they have guards on them to keep them from clogging the downspouts, you still have to clean them off. Having a small sapling taking root and growing out of the gutter, plants a bad seed in the buyers mind about the condition of the house. No pun intended!

TOOLS Until I was about 50, I had neither time nor interest in using tools around the house. Although I always liked cars, the professionals had to do the work. And when my wife wanted a picture attached to the wall, the heel of my shoe was the tool of choice – a table knife from the kitchen was my screwdriver. However I now very much enjoy my time in my little workshop, just “piddling” around, working on an old car, or motorcycle, or lawn mower. Over the years, I’ve collected the tools I need to do the job, but most folks just need a basic kit. A good starter set of tools should have a pair of pliers, an adjustable wrench, hammer, tape measure, a can of WD-40, a small hand saw, and one of those screw drivers with interchangeable bits. The next level might include a basic set of socket wrenches and standard hand wrenches. Kits like this are available for about $40 and will be a great start. An interest in repairing or “fixing up” a car, boat, or motorcycle will require a few more tools. Make sure you have both metric and standard wrenches and sockets, 3 blade type screwdrivers and 3 Phillips. Get a small bench grinder and a rechargeable drill, and maybe even an air compressor. That drill can be used with a wire brush, a small buffer, and screwdriver bits. Get a jack and two jack stands. And don’t forget shop rags, paper towels, steel wool, hand cleaner, and safety glasses. (I have some glasses with LED lights!) Good quality disposable gloves (not those used in the Old Folks Homes) will keep your hands clean, but I find that a mixture of Dawn dish detergent and Comet will remove anything from my hands, including the top layer of skin! For cleaning your work area, get a broom, dust pan and some “Kitty Litter” type oil spill remover. Get started with these items and you’ll be surprised how many more “toys” you will want to add. Working on a project in your garage or around the house can be enjoyable if you have the right tools for the job, and a “decent” tool at a fair price is all most of us will need. My favorite garage item, however, is a roll around stool. I bought an office chair for $5 at the Habitat store and removed the back rest. It’s height adjustable and perfect for scooting around my project. I “try” to keep things organized, and I am (slowly) learning to clean up my work area after each session, which makes things more pleasant when I come back to it. Build a small work bench, buy the appropriate tools, work safely, and learn some new skills. It might even be a good remedy for life’s daily stresses. But if you are on a really tight budget, go right ahead and use the heel of your shoe and a table knife. At least it’s a start!

June Tips, Trends and Trendsetters with Corby Carlin Winters Each month I strive to share current trends and ideas that are popular and impact our lives in positive ways. It is so hard to imagine that June is upon us and summer is here. Many are headed to the beach while others are opting for the Staycation. I love covering style, fashion, health, wellness, beauty, relationships and everyday life tips and trends. It is my desire to bring you a variety of fun topics and sometimes, life-changing trends. I hope you enjoy them and please feel free to share The Paper and The Shopper with friends and family.
Layering bangles, bracelets and cuffs Stacking and layering bracelets, necklaces and rings is so hot! I love to layer, layer, layer. I always have but it is so popular right now. Someone once said to me “I can’t believe you wear such big jewelry and so much for such a short person. Oh well, I must say I do love “big” jewelry and layering it is indeed my thing and for many others.
One such booth is 109, where Barbara sells her fabulous jewelry. Women will shop and literally spend an hour in Barbara’s booth, which she loves to call the Gathering of the Goddesses. Whatever your jewelry style, make sure it’s yours and let your personality shine.
The Staycation Summer vacations are a big deal, often more to children than to their parents. Not everyone can afford that special trip but let’s say you do. The vacation scenario looks a bit like this … You plan the trip, it’s time to go. You start packing which seems endless. You gather snacks for the trip. You board your animals and everyone loads in the car. And of course in the first ten minutes one of the munchkins asks that infamous question “are we there yet?” Honestly, I am already tired thinking about the trip. Here are just some ideas for your staycation ~ Get your bikes and head to Peachtree City and have lunch at one of their many fabulous restaurants or get a latte at Starbucks and dessert to take to the park. If you are a hiking person head to The Chattahoochee Bend and follow an orienteering path created by The Eldest Son of Thunder for his Eagle Project. I promise you will have great family bonding time. Also just head to downtown Newnan, shop, eat and fellowship. If you are a Walking Dead fan then go right over to Senoia and take in all the sights, eat and shop in their wonderful stores You might also want to head up to Serenbe and walk the labyrinth and have dinner at The Hill. But let me be perfectly honest my favorite words I like to hear at a staycation is “Miss Winters it is time for your massage and facial.” Now that is my kind of staycation.
Purchases with a Greater Purpose Can Be A Blessing
You can find great jewelry everywhere in our neck of the woods, from thrift shops to consignment shops and local speciality stores. Jewelry can add fun, whimsy or sophistication to any outfit for women of all ages. If you layer cuffs and bracelets you may want to then go less on the necklaces. But I have friends that go all out and layer everything at all the same time and it totally works. Men layer too and for some of them they wear it so very well. Lorraine Beckman and her Rockin’ B Antiques are a bit of a legend with their great consignment booths.
You can also find colorful pillowcases made locally in Newnan by Erin Lamb, a young artist and philanthropist who has been spotlighted in The New York Times. For each sale a portion is given back to help children go to school Guatemala.
Businesses in our local communities are working to change the world and the lives of men, women and children everywhere. Greenhouse Mercantile in downtown Newnan is one of those stores that give back through the merchandise they sell on East Washington. Owner Kenya Brantley offers a collection of unique curated goods. Kenya sells merchandise that gives back and helps those around the world from selling their beautiful handcrafted leather bags called “Live fashionably.” When you purchase one of these bag you help women in Ethiopia.
Blue Moon Boutique, also in downtown Newnan, is owned by Gay Koran and carries the TOMS brand. That includes TOMS shoes, sunglasses and handbags. If you purchase any handbag women are given birth kits, the sale of sunglasses provides eye care and for the sale of each pair of shoes a pair of shoes is given.

grab a backpack from your garage and put some hand weights or heavy books in the back. I have done this many times and had no idea I was actually Rucking. The most important thing you need to know is get busy hiking, Oh, I meant to say Rucking. Call it rucking, hiking, walking. Bottom line is exercise and get moving.
A Healthy Glowing Face Facial sheets and under eye boosts are all the rage in Hollywood and even in our neck of the woods. Looking and staying young is a multi-billion dollar business and it continues to grow. Many women experience ageism. However, often men catch a bit of a break on this one. Men can age and no one seems to judge them. But let’s be honest, women are not so lucky. But taking care of your skin and health is important at any age, eating right, drinking lots of water are great way to keep your skin young and vibrant.
Let Corby know you enjoy her Tips & Trends! If you have ideas for articles please share with her firstname.lastname@example.org
Rucking or Hiking - Call It Want You Want - It Is Exercise So recently Winters learned all about a new activity called Rucking. Best yet, so did I. However, as I overheard the video Winters was listening too I was certain they were talking about good old hiking. Something we have done for years while living in Alaska and also being a part of Boy Scouts.
Moisturizers and sunblock are critical for longer term care of your skin for years to come. There are many products and skincare lines but the most important thing is to find what works best for you, your skin and gives you the results you want. But don’t be fooled, products can only do so much and whether your friends are telling you are not some are definitely going under the needle for botox and other fillers. Do not be so quick judge. But I will say these facial sheets are awesome and you can find them all over the area at various price levels.
But I was wrong, evidently if you put on a back pack, grab a hiking stick and start walking around your neighbourhood, then you are rucking. But do the very same thing in woods it is called hiking. This makes me laugh a bit because I’m certain some city folks are spending a lot of money to get specialized Rucking gear. And maybe they need it. Good news is if it gets men and women exercising then that is awesome. The important key is to stay healthy. We must exercise. So before you run out and spend loads of money buying an official rucking backpack, do your research. You just might

Number of husband caregivers growing
Not only is Sunday, June 18 Father’s Day, but it is also Husband Caregiver Day. In 2009 men accounted for 34 percent of the 65 million family caregivers. By 2012 that number had risen to 45 percent. One reason for the increase is that in people over 65 years of age, Alzheimer’s is more prevalent in women than in men. In people over 65, 3.9 million women have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s compared to 1.8 million men in the same age group. Add to that – of people who are 65 or older – 20 percent will live until age 90, while Beth Dow 1 in 2 will develop Alzheimer’s after age 85. With these statistics, the number of baby boomer husbands being caregivers will only grow. Men caregivers are different from women caregivers. While they are very willing to step up and take on the caregiving role, men often report feeling more unprepared for the caregiving role than women do. They are less likely to ask for help, and when they do ask for help it is typically after a crisis, like a fall or severe health deterioration of their loved one. Men find it harder to admit the emotional and physical stress that caregiving has on them. They are less likely to discuss any of their caregiving issues with other family members or friends. And they don’t typically have the same tight social network that women often do, that could give them support. As a caregiver, men may have to learn new tasks. Traditionally, household chores, such as laundry, cooking and general housework have been the
wife’s responsibility, while the outside chores, have been assigned to the man. Caregiving may also include bathing and dressing their wife, and the men find themselves having to learn how to apply makeup or fix hair. All new territory for them. The most important thing a male caregiver can do, or any caregiver can do for their loved one, is to take care of themselves. If the husband hurts his back, gets ill, or falls into a deep depression, who will take of his wife? Being her husband, does not mean that you should be the only one to provide her care. Sometimes the best care one can give someone is care that someone else provides. There is only one job that no one else can do: that is be her husband. Everything else can be done by someone other than you. Men often feel that caregiving is an extension of their role as a provider. They feel if they do not take care of their wives, if they ask for help, they have not lived up to their commitment as her husband. Think of it this way, if you had children, it was your role as a father to make sure they received an education. So, you sent them to school. Caregiving in the same. It is your job to ensure that your wife is taken care of to the best of your ability. There is no rule that says you must do it all alone. On this Husband Caregiver Day, if you know someone that is a husband caregiver, ask them if you can help and then help. Cook a meal, pick up groceries, visit with their wife so they can get out. And if you are a husband caregiver, ask for help. Help is out there. You don’t have to do this alone. n Beth Dow is the owner of Home Helpers and Direct Link of GA & AL.

Inﬂow Must Equal Outﬂow It doesn’t matter what, but inflow should equal outflow. In theory, the amount going in cannot be more or less than the amount coming out. The opposite is true, too. What is coming out cannot be more or less than the amount flowing in. One drains the pond; the other flows over the banks of the pond. In terms of cash flow, if little is coming in then only a little can come out. If a lot is coming in then more can come out, or at the least the amount of retained earnings will flourish. In time management, if you put too much on the to do list and you do not have more time to give, your frustration and stress level may limit your accomplishments, or at the least, minimize the quality in your accomplishments. In lead generation, you must have an equal ration of conversion to a prospect that is either qualified or unqualified. If you have more leads coming in than can be converted, then your leads list will suffer from lack of quality attention and your process will falter. Or if you have fewer leads coming and your conversion rate is higher than the inflow, then you will eventually run out of leads. Either way, too many leads or not enough leads may hurt you. In customer or employee retention, inventory management, assets versus liabilities, marketing exposure versus business growth, or most any other business consideration, your inflow must equal outflow. The proper processes, standards and management must be in place to give you a healthy balance for success.
When is the Right Time to Embellish Embellishment is the art of making something sound better than what is probably true. Sales people do it all the time. More often than not embellishment becomes a
s i h T r e d Consi with Ken Hammock
valued trait in terms of sales success. But in my view, embellishment only offers validity and justification to a white lie. But, a lie is a lie, nonetheless. If the product or service you provide requires constant embellishment to make a sale, it is time for you to find something more suited to telling the truth. In my sales management experience, I’ve hired those with great embellishment abilities. What I discovered was a person who is willing to stretch the truth meter in order to make a sale. Equally, if he or she will stretch it with a client then he or she will certainly do it with me. Credibility and trustworthiness were not held in high regard, and their relationships with clients and me were short lived. The truth will find you out. The best character trait any valued sales person must strive for is earned trust. As you grow in your business you will find it better to gain the trust of a client long before the hope of a transaction becomes an issue. I believe you must paint the best picture possible. But do so only in the limits of what is true. Data, market research, survey results, reviews, competitive advantages, and reputable quotes from respected sources can be used to prove a point. But, this does not give license to slam a competitor or embellish the truth. Earn trust. The sales will come naturally.

Q. What are all of these bumps on my pecan tree leaves?
The bumps you are seeing on pecan leaves are insect galls caused by the pecan leaf phylloxera, a tiny, aphid-like insect that feeds on the pecan leaves. Although the insects are rarely seen, the galls they create are quite visible and they generate many calls to the Extension office each year. In fact, several years ago a client called me in a panic because she said it looked like aliens were taking over her pecan tree!

Pecan Leaf phylloxera. Image Credit: UGA Extension Horticulture Specialist for Pecans, Lenny Wells The good news is that minor infestations of leaf phylloxera do not seem to have much of an affect on pecan crops. The bad news is that heavy infestations of these insects and especially the stem phylloxera specie can significantly reduce pecan production. While commercial pecan growers have some options for control, backyard pecan trees are susceptible since homeowners usually do not have access to the spray equipment needed to treat for them. Galls can occur on many different plants though, not just pecan trees. They can be caused by insects, mites, fungi, bacteria, or nematodes but insect galls are certainly the most common. Some of these insects include adelgids, phylloxerans, psyllids, gall midges and gall wasps. There are more than 2,000 galling insects in the United States and more than 1,700 are gall midges or gall wasps. Insect galls are formed when an insect lays eggs in actively growing plant tissue and those plant cells respond by quickly surrounding the egg or immature insect. These galls provide protection and food for the growing insect. Galls come in all shapes and sizes based on the insect that caused it to form. They can appear as tiny blisters, round balls, tubes or folded leaves. The surface of the gall can be smooth, hairy, or covered with spines and the gall may occur anywhere on the plant but are most common on the leaves. For the backyard gardener, galling insects are harmless and just cause interesting looking leaves. Although heavy infestations have been known to cause serious damage to high value plants, it is very rare. Chemical control options are unnecessary since most gall-makers don’t physically damage plants and is generally considered impractical, especially when the plant affected is a 30’ tall tree. Gall-makers also have numerous enemies since galls are a good source of nutrients. Other insects may feed on them or use them for shelter. These natural enemies usually keep the gall-maker populations down.
For more information on backyard pecan trees, pecan phylloxera or other galls, contact the Coweta County Extension Office at 770-254-2620 or e-mail uge2077@uga. edu and ask for the UGA Extension publication, “Home Garden Pecans”.

Dorene’s Pet Tip For June There are many fruits and nuts that are harmful to our pets. I was surprised at some of the foods that were harmful to pets. I researched some of the foods we eat and found some surprising facts. Most pet parents know that Chocolate is bad for dogs. But did you know what it does to your dog’s body? It builds up in the liver and causes liver failure. I looked up the AKC web site and then looked at the toxic foods. For example did you know that onions and avocados are harmful and so are pistachios and macadamia nuts. For a full list check out this web site: AKC.com/toxicfoodfordogs. I have magnets at Pet’s Paradise that have the more common toxic foods and also the ASPCA poison hotline. Come by and get your magnet today. This “Pet Tip” is sponsored by Dorene Thompson of Pet’s Paradise Grooming Salon & Spa.

See ALL Adoptable Pets at Coweta County Animal Control at www.PetHarbor.com. Introducing Sweet Gentleman, Karl
Kennel B-14. Terrier Mix. #A034712 Handsome Karl was picked up as a stray from the Powers Country Store/West Hwy. 34. Someone loved him enough to have him neutered but sadly he was never reclaimed. Karl is a gentle spirit whose only wish is to be by your side as your companion. He’s calm & easy-going. Hearthbreakingly pa�ent, too—he never makes a peep when you pass his kennel. He �ust �uietly waits for you to no�ce him. Karl walks well on a leash and seems as laid-back around other dogs, too. �ecause he’s neutered, Karl’s adop�on fee will be reduced. He’s heartworm-posi�ve but Newnan-Coweta Humane Society will help with Karl’s treatment. Please meet this sweetheart and adopt Karl today! Karl + 84 other dogs available!
Newnan-Coweta Humane Society is a 501(c)3 all-volunteer, non-pro t organiza�on, dedicated to reducing the number of pets euthanized at Coweta County Animal Control (Newnan, GA) through rescue, spay/neuter, foster programs, and community awareness. Visit www.NCHSRescue.org for more informa�on.
Meet Jake the Kitten!
Kennel C-6. Domestic Short Hair. #A034817
Would you �ust LOOK at li�le Jake here� He is bright-eyed and ready to take on the world! Jake is a sweet, playful fella. He is smart and a ec�onate and, according to one volunteer, �A great catch!” This dear boy was born in the shelter but does NOT want to grow up here. The shelter is a tough environment but especially for young ki�ens. Please show Jake how luck black cats really are. Adopt this swee�e today! Jake + 49 other cats available!
