By now, roughly 2,000 students from private and public high schools in Coweta, as well as those home-schooled, have gotten all sorts of advice about moving forward after high school. Advice from parents, coaches, teachers and yes, fellow students. They are inundated with advice right now. Which is why it makes perfect sense for us to add our two cents, currently valued at two quarters due to inflation. 10-10-80 Rule: Give away 10 percent of everything you make: your favorite charity, your church, some mission, some non-profit. Pay yourself 10 percent. Set aside money for an emergency or as investments. Please look up the definition of “emergency,” which involves knowing the difference between “want” and “need,” which we will get to. Finally, learn to live off 80 percent of your income. It is very doubtful you will ever have financial troubles following this plan. Want and Need: Learn the difference. A “need” is food, clothing, shelter, transportation. “Wants” are pretty much everything else. This is not to say you can’t have nice things, but rather make sure you can afford your “wants” by paying cash. Try to wait 30 days on any “want.” If you still want that item more than anything else, then go get it. Sign Your Name: Or, be willing to stand up for your work. Don’t do something halfway. Be proud of your accomplishments. Be able to say “I did this” with confidence. Find Your Sams: These are the ones who have traveled the same road you are preparing for. Call them coaches, mentors or those old guys, these are the ones who have been there and done that. Learn from them so you won’t make the same mistakes they did. Keep Your Word: A dying act. Even if it hurts, you promise, you keep it. Remember it’s your reputation. Follow Your Passion: Find it first. What puts a smile on your face? What makes you wake up before the crack of dawn? What do you love doing? Figure out how to make that your career. Remember that a job is just that; and never let it define you. ***** While workinng on this part of my column, I came across these facts from a well-known teen suicide prevention site: “More teenagers and young adults die from suicide than from cancer, heart disease, AIDS, birth defects, stroke, pneumonia, influenza, and chronic lung disease, COMBINED. Each day in our nation, there are an average of over 3,041 attempts by young people grades 9-12.” That is mindblowing. And those numbers don’t reflect the even larger pool of teenagers suffering from severe depression, fear, anxiety or grief in whatever form. After losing their daughter and sister Abby Bacho to a car accident involving a distracted teen, Abby’s family discovered there were not a lot of grief services available for youth in the county. They set out to change that. With a generous gift from the Newnan Junior Service League, the Bacho’s Abby’s Angels Foundation is using those funds and teaming up with Kate’s Club, which empowers youth facing the loss of a parent or sibling. An orientation meeting will be held Sept. 15 at Odyssey Charter School. The goal is to create a place where children and youth can share the feelings with their peers who have faced the same trials. And all done in a safe and secure environment. There is more information available on Page 7. If you or someone in your family would benefit from this service, please do so. Thanks for reading.

Encouraging Words June 2019 …

“Medicine for the Mind” “Successful people maintain a positive focus in life no matter what is going on around them. They stay focused on their past successes rather than their past failures, and on the next action steps they need to take to get them closer to the fulfillment of their goals, rather than all the distractions that life presents to them.” … Jack Canfield ✵✵✵✵✵✵✵✵ “Positive thinking is a valuable attitude that can help you overcome obstacles, deal with pain, and reach new goals.” … Amy Morin ✵✵✵✵✵✵✵✵ “So, when you wake up every day, you have two choices. You can either be positive or negative; an optimist or a pessimist. I choose to be an optimist. It’s all a matter of perspective.” … Harvey Mackay ✵✵✵✵✵✵✵✵ “However, you will always have ups and downs in your life and career, but just stay positive and go for it!” … Angelique Kerber ✵✵✵✵✵✵✵✵ “And once you replace negative thoughts with positive ones, you’ll start having positive results!” … Unknown ✵✵✵✵✵✵✵✵ “A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.” … Proverbs 17:22 ✵✵✵✵✵✵✵✵

Cigna Foundation Grant Helps Aid Expansion of Women’s Heart Program in Fayette, Coweta Piedmont Heart Institute announced a $449,000 grant from the Cigna Foundation that will help the organization expand its innovative approach to addressing heart disease in women. The Piedmont Women’s Heart Program helps women with heart disease and those at risk of developing it access Piedmont’s exceptional, holistic cardiovascular care and connect with other women to find support and encouragement. The program launched at Piedmont Atlanta Hospital in 2017, spread to Piedmont Fayette in 2018 and will roll out additional services and programs in Fayette and Coweta counties throughout 2019 and 2020. “Heart disease is the number one killer of women in Georgia and 90 percent of all women have at least one risk factor for heart disease,” said Jo Tapper, Executive Director, CV Strategy and Professional Services. “What’s shocking is that 80 percent of cardiac events can be prevented by lifestyle changes and education. That’s why this program is necessary and can make such a tremendous impact.” The Women’s Heart Program focuses on prevention, clinical care, and support to reduce heart disease among women and promote long-term heart health and wellness. In order to aid prevention, the program offers personalized heart screenings to identify individual risk factors. Currently, screenings are available at Piedmont Heart Institute offices in Fayetteville and Newnan. Piedmont Heart has a team of women’s heart experts who provide the best medical care to treat acute and chronic cardiovascular disease. The Dottie Fuqua Women’s Heart Support Network provides wellness education and programming, bringing the community together to build a supportive environment for women. “We view the body and mind as connected, and to help people improve and maintain health, it is important their health care approaches them as a whole person,” said Susan Stith, Executive Director, Cigna Foundation. “Piedmont Heart Institute delivers a holistic approach to care that provides essential services for the body and mind, and we are happy to help expand the heart program into additional communities.” “Our education events and services are available free of charge to ensure access to good health is barrier free,” said Lauren Fyock, Program Coordinator for Women’s Heart. “With this expansion and grant support, we will go a step further, and expand our target population with an additional focus on minority and uninsured populations who may be at greater risk for heart disease. The program will collaborate with free clinics in the community with which Piedmont has relationships – Fayette C.A.R.E. Clinic and Coweta Samaritan Clinic.”

Since arriving at Piedmont Fayette last summer, the Women’s Heart Support Network has offered numerous programs including Heart-to-Heart dinners with physicians and healthcare professionals, aromatherapy and mindfulness classes, cooking demonstrations and the Women’s Heart Yoga class. “We go deep into the communities we serve to help improve access to connected health and well-being services, and we support Piedmont Heart Institute’s efforts to help more women take steps to reduce the risk of heart disease,” said Bryan Holgerson, Cigna Market President for Georgia. This summer, Piedmont Heart will begin to roll out additional services and additional locations including awareness activities and Support Network wellness coaching educational offerings based at Piedmont Newnan Hospital and the two clinics. ###

In addition, if all hospitals in the country performed at the level of award recipients for each of the 14 Patient Safety Indicators, 127,667 patient safety events could have been avoided.* “Our goal at Piedmont Newnan is to deliver high-quality patient care in the safest environment,” said Mike Robertson, CEO of Piedmont Newnan. “Achieving this Patient Safety Excellence Award from Healthgrades demonstrates our commitment to creating a superior and safe experience for our patients and offering our community top care close to home.”

Our goal at Piedmont Newnan is to deliver “ high-quality patient care in the safest environment, ” said Mike Robertson, CEO of Piedmont Newnan.

Piedmont Newnan Hospital Earns Ninth Consecutive ‘A’ Grade from Leapfrog For the ninth consecutive grading period, Piedmont Newnan Hospital has earned an ‘A’ from The Leapfrog Group’s spring 2019 Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade. The designation recognizes Piedmont Newnan’s efforts in protecting patients from harm and providing safer health care.

Piedmont Newnan Hospital honored three Newnan Police Officers for going above and beyond the call of duty On May 3, Piedmont Newnan Hospital honored Newnan Police Officers Christopher Lewis, Joshua Skinner and Corey Spivey as Piedmont Newnan’s May First Friday Heroes.

The Leapfrog Group is a national nonprofit organization committed to improving health care quality and safety for consumers and purchasers. The Safety Grade assigns an ‘A’, ‘B’, ‘C’, ‘D’ or ‘F’ grade to hospitals across the country based on their performance in preventing medical errors, injuries, accidents, infections and other harms to patients in their care. Piedmont Newnan was one of seven hospitals in the Piedmont Healthcare system, and one of only 27 hospitals in Georgia, to receive an “A” for its efforts in protecting patients from harm and meeting the highest safety standards in the United States. Piedmont Healthcare’s hospitals account for 26 percent of all of the hospitals in Georgia that received A’s, making it the safest healthcare system in Georgia with more A grades than any other healthcare system in the state. “At Piedmont Newnan, we take great pride in providing high-quality, patient-centered care to the people in our community,” said Piedmont Newnan CEO Mike Robertson. “Patient safety is our top priority, and we are all so proud of our ninth consecutive ‘A’ from Leapfrog.” “To be recognized nationally as an ‘A’ hospital is an accomplishment the whole community should take pride in,” said Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. “Hospitals that earn an ‘A’ grade are making it a priority to protect patients from preventable medical harm and error. We congratulate hospital leaders, board members, staff, volunteers and clinicians who work so hard to earn this A.” Developed under the guidance of a national Expert Panel, the Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade uses 28 measures of publicly available hospital safety data to assign grades to more than 2,600 U.S. acute-care hospitals twice per year. The Hospital Safety Grade’s methodology is peer-reviewed and fully transparent, and the results are free to the public. To see Piedmont Newnan’s full grade details, and to access patient tips for staying safe in the hospital, visit and follow The Leapfrog Group on Twitter and Facebook. ###

Piedmont Newnan honoring officers at Newnan Police Station The three officers went above and beyond the call of duty by recognizing a victim’s signs of distress and administering the needed medical attention. Officers Skinner and Spivey recently responded to a call for assistance at a local hotel. Upon arrival at the hotel, Officer Lewis made contact with the father of the victim. The father stated that his son was unresponsive in the bathroom and that he could not get the door open. Officer Lewis was able to open the door and make contact with the victim. The victim responded neither to the officer calling his name nor giving him a sternum rub. As a result, the victim was administered two doses of Narcan. Officer Skinner assisted Officer Spivey by getting the victim out of the bathroom, placing him on his side and monitoring him until EMS arrived. The victim woke up shortly afterward. Thanks to the quick actions taken by these officers, they were able to save the victim’s life that night. Piedmont Newnan 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 Piedmont Newnan wants 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.

and partner together for Kate’s Club Connects in Newnan Through the death of their daughter and sister, Abby Bacho, the Bacho family realized there are limited grief services for the youth in our community. Unresolved and unprocessed grief can lead to academic, social and emotional struggle and decline. Recent statistics indicate 1 in 13 Georgia children have lost a parent, sibling or primary caregiver. Kate’s Club empowers children facing life after the death of a parent or sibling. We create healing communities through recreational and therapeutic group programs, education and advocacy. Kate’s Club offers a safe and welcoming environment where the child/teen can spend time with others their age who have similar grief experiences.

Newnan-Coweta Historical Society Launches Passport to Coweta County Program

Balancing the demands of our jobs, families and daily responsibilities can be challenging, so it’s healthy to take a break sometimes to relax, unwind and enjoy new experiences. When planning a much-needed trip or vacation, it’s important to reduce costs and stick to a budget so your getaway won’t cause lots of debt or unnecessary stress. Here are some ways to save on summer travel:

Passport to Coweta County is an outdoor exhibit that encourages families to explore different locations, areas, and experiences throughout Newnan and the surrounding Coweta County area. Families are invited to visit historical sites including battlefields, museums, and WWII-era homes and also participate in making history by visiting new sites of interest including the Newnan Trolley and LINC multiuse trail. The program will run between June and August 2019. Participating families start their journey at the McRitchie-Hollis museum where they can pick up their passport booklet for a $5 donation (active Newnan-Coweta Historical Society members receive a free booklet). Touring the home earns participants their first “stamp.” The passport includes ten stops in total. Once families visit the passport location and actively engage with the organization, they should see a staff or volunteer on site to receive their “stamp” for that respective location. For locations without a volunteer or staff member on site, families may take a photo documenting their visit and receive a “stamp” at the McRitchie-Hollis Museum at a later date. Families that receive stamps for all ten stops by the end of the program will receive a congratulatory prize. Passport Locations include: McRitchie-Hollis Museum Newnan Carnegie Library Coweta County Visitors Center (Alan Jackson Display) Coweta County Historic 1904 Courthouse Wadsworth Auditorium City of Newnan Trolley LINC Brown’s Mill Battlefield Moreland Cultural Arts Alliance Senoia Area Historical Society History Museum The passport program officially ends with NCHS’ “Back to School Pep Rally” held Saturday, August 3 from 11am to 2pm. At the event, NCHS will kick off its new exhibit honoring Newnan High School’s 1000th football game. Families participating in the passport program are invited to attend the event where prizes will be distributed for those who completed all ten stops.

Airplane travel is nature’s way of making you look like your passport photo. Al Gore

Catch a Ride with Megabus Megabus is an economical travel option for people on a budget. Megabus serves more than 100 different cities and university campuses in the United States and Canada. The double decker buses offer free Wi-Fi, at-seat power outlets and panoramic windows, and they’re wheelchair accessible. For more information, visit http:// Avoid Airline Baggage Fees Most airlines now charge baggage fees for each checked bag, in addition to the cost of your plane ticket. For instance, Delta, United and American Airlines charge $30 each way for the first checked bag that is under 50 pounds and $40 each way for a second bag. That means you’ll pay at least $60 to $80 per bag if you’re flying round trip. If your bag exceeds the airline’s size and weight restrictions for luggage, you will pay even more. To avoid these hefty fees, consider limiting yourself to one checked bag or packing only a carry-on bag. To lighten the load, make a list of the essential items that you need to pack. Lay out your clothing, toiletries, etc., so you can see exactly how much you’re planning to pack. You’ll probably find that you’re overpacking and can eliminate some items. Be sure to check the weather so you’re packing the appropriate attire. Some airlines may waive baggage fees for active members of the military and their dependents, so ask about this perk when you’re checking into the airport. Be sure to have your military ID handy for proof. If you want to bring a carry-on bag, make sure it meets the airline’s size and measurement restrictions.

The park also offers archery, guided hikes, ziplining and camping. • Helen – This tourist attraction has hiking and biking trails, water activities such as kayak and canoe rides,

fishing, horseback riding, ziplining, golf, shopping and many dining options, including Bavarian dishes. • Blue Ridge – This mountain town has luxury mountain cabins, hiking, fishing, horseback riding, dining, waterfalls and beautiful views of Georgia’s Blue Ridge Mountains. • Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forests – These forests provide hundreds of miles of recreation trails and dozens of campgrounds, picnic areas and activities. • Chattanooga, Tenn. – This southeastern city offers rock climbing, road and mountain biking, hiking, horseback riding, whitewater rafting, hang gliding, riverboat cruises, guided tours, wine or whiskey tastings and popular attractions such as the Tennessee Aquarium, Chattanooga Zoo and museums. In addition, AAA members can get discounts on tickets to movies, attractions (amusement parks, museums, aquariums and zoos) and events (concerts and sporting events) by presenting their membership card. They can also save at restaurants. Save on Road Trips When you’re traveling by car to your destination, money-saving expert Clark Howard has some tips for saving money: • Rent a vehicle – If you can find a good deal on a rental car, put the trip miles and depreciation on the rental car instead of your own vehicle. This will help you save money in the long run. • Check your tire pressure – Save money on gas by making sure your tires have the proper amount of air in them. • Pack a lunch – Bring your own snacks and beverages instead of paying high gas station and restaurant prices. This will also help you save time because you won’t need to stop so often for food. Bring a cooler to keep water and soft drinks chilled. • Download restaurant apps – If you need to stop for food, save money at fast-food chains by downloading mobile apps. The Burger King app offers coupons, and the McDonald’s app has weekly deals. • Skip lodging – If your trip isn’t long, use your time wisely and keep driving so you won’t need lodging. Or, if a friend or family member’s home is along the way, ask to stay overnight and catch up with them. ❦ June 19, 2019 ❦ The SHOPPER ❦ Page 9 meeting and then a guest speaker.

A macaroni salad that’s perfect for summer Many years ago, I celebrated a birthday with a girlfriends trip to Warm Springs. We had a great time staying at a local B&B and then shopping our way through town, finally ending up at the Victorian Tea Room for lunch one day. To my surprise, this wasn’t a tea-and-crumpets type of tea room but rather a place that served hearty entrees and great Southern food. I have returned to Warm Springs many times over the years to browse its antique stores, and I have also visited to dine with friends at the Bulloch House, the home built in 1893 that became a restaurant about a hundred years later. Then, in June of 2015, many of us scrolled through our Facebook feeds one morning to discover the awful news that the Bulloch House had burned overnight following a lightning strike. The fire was widely covered in local media, and many were left wondering whether a beloved regional restaurant would ever return. Fortunately, in December of 2015, the Bulloch House reopened, only this time, it had moved to Broad Street, in the building that I first knew as the Victorian Tea Room. I thought the new location was brilliant, and I love its history. If you keep your eyes open while you’re in Newnan antique stores, you can occasionally find a copy of the 1991 cookbook Victorian Tea Room Favorite Recipes—Warm Springs. One of the book’s recipes I like to make is the Macaroni Salad, which is a crowd pleaser of a dish. I make it for summertime family gatherings, and not long ago, I made it to share when a friend’s father passed away. It feeds a bunch of folks, it’s easy to make, and if you love black olives and Italian dressing as I do, it’s absolutely delicious. Because it’s almost summertime, I’m looking for seashells at every turn, so instead of using elbow macaroni, I use pasta shells because they’re pretty and summery. And if your summer garden is already producing peppers, by all means, use whatever color and variety of them is available. The key to a good pasta salad, of course, is to make sure you don’t overcook the pasta. Once it’s reached the desired firmness, run cold water over the pasta to keep it from cooking any further.

Homestead Exemptions Reduce Your Property Taxes

If I told you that you could lower your property taxes, would that interest you? Pardon the sales approach but I wanted to grab your attention. In Georgia, we have property tax homestead exemptions. Generally, a homeowner is entitled to a homestead exemption on their home and land underneath, provided the home was owned by the homeowner and was their legal residence as of January 1 of the taxable year ( In Coweta County, your homestead exemption can be filed at the Tax Commissioner’s Office on Perry Street by April 1 of the taxable year. ❦ June 19, 2019 ❦ The SHOPPER ❦ Page 11 un-remarried surviving spouse of a member of the armed forces who was killed in or died as a result of any war or armed conflict will be granted a homestead exemption from all ad valorem taxes for county, municipal and school purposes in the amount of $60,000 plus an additional sum. The additional sum is determined according to an index rate set by the United States Secretary of Veterans Affairs. The amount for 2019 is $85,645. The surviving spouse will continue to be eligible for the exemption as long as they do not remarry. (O.C.G.A. § 485-52.1). There are several other types of homestead exemptions. Please keep these in mind with the real estate that you reside in. You may want to call the Tax Assessor’s office and see what you qualify for. We all would like to save money and reduce our taxes. I hope this article assists you in doing so! (Jess Barron is an Associate Broker with Lindseys, Inc. Realtors and former President of the Newnan-Coweta Board of Realtors.)


Veggie Patch

With a standard homestead exemption, the home of each resident of Georgia that is actually occupied and used as the primary residence by the owner may be granted a $2,000 exemption from county and school taxes except for school taxes levied by municipalities and except to pay interest on and to retire bonded indebtedness. The $2,000 is deducted from the 40% assessed value of the homestead. The owner of a dwelling house of a farm that is granted a homestead exemption may also claim a homestead exemption in participation with the Program of Rural Housing under contract with the local Housing Authority. (O.C.G.A. § 48-5-44).

Fresh Local Produce … Veggies, Fruits, Melons, Berries, Peaches Flowers, Plants & Much More

There are also exemptions for seniors. Individuals 65 years of age or over may claim a $4,000 exemption from all county ad valorem taxes if the income of that person and his spouse does not exceed $10,000 for the prior year. Income from retirement sources, pensions, and disability income is excluded up to the maximum amount allowed to be paid to an individual and his spouse under the federal Social Security Act. The social security maximum benefit for 2019 is $68,664. The owner must notify the county Tax Commissioner if for any reason they no longer meet the requirements for this exemption. (O.C.G.A. § 48-5-47). Individuals 62 years of age or over that are residents of each independent school district and of each county school district may claim an additional exemption from all ad valorem taxes for educational purposes and to retire school bond indebtedness if the income of that person and his spouse does not exceed $10,000 for the prior year. Income from retirement sources, pensions, and disability income is excluded up to the maximum amount allowed to be paid to an individual and his spouse under the federal Social Security Act. The social security maximum benefit for 2019 is $68,664. The owner must notify the county Tax Commissioner if for any reason they no longer meet the requirements for this exemption. This exemption may not exceed $10,000 of the homestead's assessed value. (O.C.G.A. §48-5-52). Veterans and their surviving spouses are also eligible for tax exemptions. Any qualifying disabled veteran may be granted an exemption of $60,000 plus an additional sum from paying property taxes for county, municipal, and school purposes. The additional sum is determined according to an index rate set by United States Secretary of Veterans Affairs. The amount for 2019 is $85,645.The value of the property in excess of this exemption remains taxable. This exemption is extended to the un-remarried surviving spouse or minor children as long as they continue to occupy the home as a residence.

June Trends & Trendsetters There are so many new trends happening in social media, politics, business and fashion. Look for 2019 to be filled with many new trends while still holding on to those timeless trends. (Corby is known to many as the Little Black Dress and The Paper Girl.

Corporate Marketing and Branding With Your Clothes Business branding - especially company logos - are becoming more and more visible. These can range from name tags to bumper stickers and even large car magnets. But a classy and yet subtle way to show off your company is with clothing. And that can include hats, t-shirts, jackets and even button down collared shirts. Here at Winters Media & Publishing, we have our company logo on baseball-style hats, t-shirts and dress shirts. It’s a great way to build community awareness of your business and brand. Right in downtown Newnan is One Divine Design, which has all kinds of styles for companies, high schools and colleges. Go check them out.

Hearing loss impacts If you know someone suffering from hearing loss, you know how frustrating it can be. My dear friend Meredith Kearns has the most difficult time because she can’t hear out of one ear. The hardest thing is being in restaurants, meetings and large crowds. So after a great deal of frustration and meeting with doctors, one of Meredith’s real estate clients told her about Bose “Hearphones.” They are “conversation-enhancing headphones that are specially designed to help you hear in louder environments. Active noise reduction makes any noisy place easier and more comfortable, taking the edge off the noisy world,” according to the Bose website. Meredith said they have been a godsend for her.

To Tat or Not To Tat I have wanted to tackle this trend for sometime now as it seems wherever you look you can’t help but see people with tattoos. We are talking everything from near body-covering to tiny ankle tattoos. And the correct lingo is to call them “tats” now. I did an informal poll to see if people regretted them. Almost no one did except for one woman who said she just got too many and didn’t want her daughter to do that as well. So, if you are considering a “tat,” but aren’t sure yet, try a fake one for a while. Red Letter Merchant sells faux tattoos of all shapes, sizes and designs. They can last up to 4 weeks with very good care. Best yet they look amazingly real. The Hug Box is another place to check as that’s where The SONS picked some up for me for Mother’s Day. They got me one with the word Faith. I wore it to the middle SON’s graduation and it was quite the hit. Who knows, faux tats may become a timeless trend.

Maycember is a Real Thing Looks like we survived Maycember. That’s the new phrase for the wacky and busy month of May, where there is too much going on, but not everyone gets presents like in December. And that’s really the only difference between the two, not as many presents. May (or Maycember) has Mother’s Day, end of school events like recitals and concerts. And of course, graduation. And that leads to sending out invitations. Don’t forget gifts for teachers either. And we have to have pool parties and parties celebrating the beginning of summer and so on and so forth. And don’t forget Memorial Day. Oops, left out Vacation Bible School. If just remembering all that is making you stressed or tired like me, don’t panic. Remember that life is short. Treasure the moments and people you care about. Don’t get caught up in all the hustle and bustle; rather take time to breathe and savor these times. ❦ June 19, 2019 ❦ The SHOPPER ❦ Page 13

By Beth Dow Solutions By Beth The senior housing boom has indeed hit the Newnan-Coweta area. Assisted Living and Personal Care communities, scarce 10 years ago, are now popping up all over the county. If you are looking at Assisted Living or Personal Care as an option for you or someone you love, how do you know which one is the right one? Let’s first start with the difference between Personal Care and Assisted Living. Personal Care Homes (PCH) range from 2 to 200 beds. Assisted Living Communities (ALC) will have more than 25 beds. The ALC also must meet fairly stringent fire and building codes, that PCHs do not have to meet. Other than the fire and building codes, the main difference is the ability to age in place. No one wants to move their loved one more than they have to and ALCs are permitted to retain non-ambulatory residents without special permission from the state. In order for a PCH to keep non-ambulatory residents, they must obtain a state-granted waiver. In many cases, people living in an ALC can age in place longer than those in Personal Care Homes. Staff ratios for both ALCs and PCHs are the same. At least one responsible staff person must be on the premises 24 hours a day. The minimum staff to resident ratio is 1:15 during waking hours and 1:25 during non-waking hours. Communities must exceed the minimum ratios if

residents’ care needs require doing so. Once you decide if a Personal Care Home (PCH) or an Assisted Living Community (ALC) is best for you, you want to make sure that the one you choose has the following traits. • Family and friends are always welcomed. No one wants to go visit a loved one and sit in their room and stare at them. The best communities understand the vital role family and friends have in the resident’s social and emotional well being and will provide an environment that is “fun” and comfortable to visit and enjoy. • The Community is fresh and clean. The best communities put the health and safety of their residents first. This means they invest in housekeeping, custodial services and maintenance staff. • The best communities place high value on individualized care. Watch for those communities that “hug” the staff/resident ratios closely. The ratios mentioned above are the bare minimum and should not be the standard level of care provided. • Location. Location. Location. A central location that is easy to get to and close to shopping and

restaurants, make it easier for families and friends to find time to stop by and visit. If the community is “out of the way,” there will be fewer visits. • Watch for “Levels of Care” and Annual Increases. Communities will often bring you in at one rate and then as your care needs change, your rate goes up. And not by dollars a day but by amounts that could add $1,000-or-more to the monthly bill. Also ask about annual “cost of living” increases. These annual increases can be from 3 to 7 percent or more. While communities prefer for you to make an appointment for a tour, I suggest you “show up”, and ask for a tour. And I wouldn’t stick to Monday through Friday times. Go on weekends and in the evening. It is important for you to really see community life as it is when no one is expecting you. This is the only way you will truly see what staff is on the premises on the weekends or what type of community life happens after 6 p.m. Make a list of five communities. Visit all of them. Then visit your top two a second time. This is a great time to be looking for an ALC or PCH in Coweta. There is a very good chance you will find the perfect community for yourself or a loved one.

on those. For example, herbaceous plants can be easily replaced, but trees and shrubs usually need the most water and are more expensive to replace.

Ask your County Agent

Water fescue first

Stephanie R. Butcher

Flowers aren’t the only plants that suffer from heat stress. Your home lawn suffers, too.

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


Are there any watering restrictions right now for Coweta County? Things are beginning to dry out after the spring rains, and I need to water my plants.


There are currently no odd-even restrictions on outdoor water use, but you should take steps to conserve water and follow our permanent year-round outdoor watering restrictions, which limits outdoor watering to before 10 a.m. and after 4 p.m. daily. This avoids the hottest part of the day when more evaporation occurs. If we see drought conditions this summer, then additional water restrictions aren’t the only threat to green Georgia lawns. The searing summer heat will scorch landscapes across the state.

If your lawn is fescue, you must keep it watered if you want it to survive. Fesuce is a cool season grass and suffers terribly in extremely hot, dry weather. Bermuda and many other grasses go semi-dormant and turn a little yellow when heat- and drought- Landscape Irrigation Credit: UGA CAES/Extension stressed. Bermudagrass recovers very well and bounces back quickly with a little drink of water from the first rainfall. Lawns need about an inch of water per week. The best time to water is early in the morning. The best way to manage turfgrass during the dog days of summer is by following these tips:

If your landscape plants begin taking a beating from the heat, they’ll send out signals. Hydrangeas and impatiens in your flower beds are the poster plants for heat and drought stress. If they look droopy, take this as a sign that all your plants need water.

Cut back and help roots. If your annuals and perennials continue to be heat stressed, cut them back about halfway. If they are wilting badly, cutting them back will help them survive. Reducing the plant’s top will place less demand on its roots. The plant will come back in a few weeks and bloom again in the fall. The same strategy works for woody ornamentals like gardenias or hydrangeas. Cut them back to one-half or one-third of their normal size. When summer brings dry weather and heat for more than 20 days, which often happens here in Georgia, decide which of your plants are most valuable and focus


Raise the cutting height within the recommended mowing range

Reduce fertilize applications until conditions improve

Modify herbicide programs during high temperatures and moisture stress

Water deeply and infrequently

Having said all this, it’s worth noting that one of the most common landscape problems that I see during a drought is something you might not expect – overwatering. Many people have a tendency to overwater plants when it’s dry. The soil should be moist, not wet. For more information about watering restrictions, email coweta.extension@uga. edu or call 770-254-2620. Ask for the current outdoor water use rules and landscape management publications.

● Fix Rating 6/10

A wacky Will Smith and winning musical numbers keep this remake flying.

What movie to watch: AIR: The Musical (June 30) - This is a special movie—an independently made musical directed Jeremy Osbern, the gifted cinematographer who shot “The Fat Boy Chronicles” back in 2010 in Newnan. Shot on a very small budget and on actual film, “AIR: The Musical” is finally finding its way to a larger audience. The story is about three people who feel out of place in the world and long to find a connection with someone else. This humble and ambitious production is to be admired. Fans of “La La Land” should check this one out. What to avoid: Dragon Blade (June 30) - This Chinese production is completely bonkers. The unintelligible story involves the defense of the Silk Road from an invading force of Romans. It’s ridiculous on many levels, not the least of which is the casting of John Cusack as a Roman soldier name Lucius, who has an accent like, well, John Cusack. Adrien Brody is the heavy and the movie’s hero is none other than Jackie Chan. “Dragon Blade” is so bad that it was featured on the popular podcast “How Did This Get Made?,” which might make you check it out, but I suggest watching anything else.

It sure ain’t “Dumbo.” Disney’s live-action adaptations of its classic animated catalogue hit a low point with Tim Burton’s flying elephant story released in March. But take heart, “Aladdin” is much better. The 1992 “Aladdin” was a huge hit and won Oscars for best song, “A Whole New World,” and for its original score. Thankfully, the classic music that worked so well with hand-drawn animation is preserved in director Guy Ritchie’s enthusiastic and reverent retread. The script, written by John August and Ritchie, loses its momentum with the perfunctory action-packed conclusion, but the musical moments are wonderful. The story has thief Aladdin (Mena Massoud) falling in love with princess Jasmine (Naomi Scott), while attempting to save the kingdom from the evil Jafar (Marwan Kensari). And, of course, Aladdin gets help from a kind genie (Will Smith). The cast is solid, as the lead couple has the right, youthful, romantic chemistry. Scott’s singing voice is a real standout. “Speechless” is a recurring tune, and Scott passionately delivers the “I won’t be silenced” lyric at a time when that line has special meaning. The effects that morph Smith into the genie are uneven, but clearly cognizant of this problem, throughout much of the film, the production has Smith appear in his normal form with his real skin tone intact. He’s charming in the role made famous by the late Robin Williams. And Smith’s often freakish appearance and flamboyant attitude are reminiscent of Williams’ iconic performance. For the most part, Smith makes the part his own, while not insulting the master who first brought it to the screen. Regardless of the mediocre story that trades on the goodwill that came before it, “Aladdin (2019)” has joyous moments, and for young viewers should be, at times, delightful family entertainment.

Streaming Selects: What to binge: Black Mirror: Season 5 (June 5) - After last year’s choose-your-own-adventure “Black Mirror: Bandersnatch,” we get an entire new season of the science fiction anthology series that is always utterly bingeable. And while the fight over Chooseco’s trademark weaves its way through the courts, you can still watch the stories the old fashioned way, well, on continuous play. What movie to watch: Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (June 26) Fix Rating 9/10 - This Oscar winner for best animated feature is a joyous and super-saturated superhero celebration. The movie comes from the pen of Phil Lord, the writer who helped bring Lego toys fabulously to the big screen. His complex script is an innovative combination of the various incarnations of characters inspired by Peter Parker and his wall-crawling alter ego created originally by the late Stan Lee. “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” is flat-out terrific and should bring a tear to the eye of anyone who grew up immersed in all things Spidey. What to avoid: The Zookeeper (June 26) - This 2011 Kevin James vehicle is pretty awful. The story involves a dutiful, but lonely, zookeeper (James), who woos a woman (Rosario Dawson) with the assistance of talking animals. Avoid! What to binge: Documental: Season 3 - Okay, this won’t be for all tastes, but it is certainly a show that offers something completely different. From the mind of Japanese comedian Hitoshi Matsumoto (director of “Big Man Japan”) gathers together in one room 10 of his fellow comedians for a unique competition. The entry fee is one million yen (around $9,000) and the one comic who is the last to laugh receives ten million yen. It’s a funny combination of “Last Comic Standing” and “Big Brother.”

What to binge: The Handmaid’s Tale: Season 3 (June 5) - Departing from and expanding on Margaret Atwood novel, “The Handmaid’s Tale” has become something of a lightning rod in this politically charged time. And season 3 has June (Elisabeth Moss) returning to Gilead, because as she says in the latest trailer, there’s no such thing as an escape. Expect lots of action, as the oppressive regime has to cope with growing unrest. What to binge: Catch 22 (streaming now) - George Clooney’s take on the famous Joseph Heller novel is funny and engaging. It’s not nearly as out there as the Mike Nichols take on the material back in 1970, but there is plenty of absurdity along with a grounded take on the horrors of war. What to watch: Chernobyl (new episodes every Monday) This show is really a tough watch, but it’s rewarding. Chronicling the 1986 nuclear disaster in Russia, this docudrama both celebrates the heroic people and exposes the horrors associated with a Communist government. And while you can binge this show on the HBOGo app, watching one episode per week, appointment TVstyle, is all I could take, because it’s often depressing.

Theatrical Teasers: Toy Story 4 “Toy Story 3” the Oscar for best animated feature, and despite criticism that there was no more story to be told, it has proved to be required viewing. After 9 or so years, another “Toy” story is upon us. Focusing on a new toy named “Forky” (voiced by Tony Hale), the gang goes on a road trip that is bound to tell us more about ourselves than about the toys.

Art House Corner: All is True

● Fix Rating 6/10

This is director Kenneth Branagh’s love letter to the Great Bard. The story deals with the final years in the life of WIlliam Shakespeare (played by Branagh) after the burning of the Globe Theatre in London. He’s estranged from his older wife (Judi Dench) and his daughters, while still grieving the death of his son years earlier. The mysteries revealed are provocative, but ultimately the story is more interesting than entertaining. Still, with Branagh and Dench, it’s hard to go wrong. ❦ June 19, 2019 ❦ The SHOPPER ❦ Page 21

This month Piedmont Newnan’s First Friday Hero program honors three local police officers for going above and beyond the call of duty - Officers Christopher Lewis, Joshua Skinner, and Corey Spivey with the Newnan Police Department.
