Encouraging Words

Publisher’s PAGE

____________________________________

Friends

_________     

That massive collective sigh you heard recently came from thousands of Coweta County students moments after walking out of school for the last time - at least for a couple of months. We can also attribute that sound to hundreds of teachers, administrators and support staff, and a pretty big collection of parents. No more “rock, paper, scissors” as to who will get up to take the snowflakes to school. Or at least go down the hall to wake said precious ones up because the five alarms you set for them somehow did nothing to awaken the Kraken. And for those who have discovered the source of the Nile, aka, how to train your kids to actually wake up on time, pour their own cereal and make it to the bus stop without awakening anyone, well, I salute you. Yet times moves on. The question of “have you finished your homework” is replaced with “why don’t you have a job?” The second question you will ask, and this if your kids haven’t hit the job market yet is, “how can anyone sleep this long?” And the third is simply a statement, “no, playing video games is not a job and you can become a video programmer after you mow the lawn.” Speaking of jobs, if your kids are fortunate to have one, you get the opportunity to explain to them “life.” By this I mean Mr. FICA. “Who is this FICA guy and why is he taking all my money,” the Eldest asked after getting his first paycheck. “And why is the state of Georgia and the federal government taking my money. I’m not even legally an adult.” “Why?” he asks. Yeah, why is water wet and fire hot. ******* And now for something completely different. There is a saying about how you can tell a lot about a community by how it treats those who can’t help themselves. I think Coweta does an incredible job with the numerous nonprofits here. The Coweta Community Foundation helps nonprofits not only survive, but thrive. The foundation serves as an umbrella 501-c3, gives out thousands of dollars in grants each year, and holds training sessions for nonprofits on a multitude of issues. Each year, the Newnan Kiwanis Club holds the Newnan Coweta Fair. This past year the civic club doled out more than $200,000 to local nonprofits, many who would not be able to keep their doors open without that financial help. For many nonprofits, getting their message out - what they do, what they need, how you can help - is one of the hardest things they face. Any money they get is poured right back into the agency. They rarely have funds to tell their story. We can help in that area through our new Give BIG campaign. It’s pretty simple. Individuals, businesses and organizations can “adopt” a nonprofit and donate a paid ad for them to use as they want in The Paper. In turn, the donor gets an acknowledgement for their donation. Already, Abby’s Angels Foundation, Backpack Buddies and the ChildrenConnect Museum have benefited from this campaign from the generosity of others. Do you have a favorite charity? Do you know a nonprofit that could use some publicity? Give us a call about helping them out. Until next time …

1. Give good health a shot. Get your flu, shingles and pneumonia immunizations. Follow your doctor’s advice about regular cancer screening tests, stress tests and bone density measurements. Head off some of the problems of aging before they occur. 2. Stay mentally alert. Read the newspaper every day. Do the crossword puzzle. Play bridge or chess. Take—or teach—a class. Keeping your mind engaged could ward off the brain changes that lead to Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. 3. Don’t smoke. You’re never too old to quit. 4. Eat right. Make sure your grocery list includes lots of fresh produce, a few lean meats and low fat dairy products. Choose brightly colored vegetables such as carrots and broccoli and deep-colored fruit such as berries and peaches for their high nutritional value. Read the labels and watch out for products that are high in fat, sodium and sugar. 5. Be physically active. Regular activity can help delay, prevent or manage many costly chronic diseases faced by adults 50 years old or older. Try walking, bicycling, water aerobics or dancing. Strength training such as lifting weights can help you improve your balance.

Caregiver of the Month: Brooke Carriger

H

ome Helpers of GA & AL continues to recognize and celebrate the relationship between caregivers and the families they serve in 2018. As people age, there are times when a little help, a little companionship, a little reassurance helps. Being independent does not mean doing everything by yourself. Being independent means being in control of your lifestyle, your schedule and the way in which your needs are met. Home Helpers of GA & AL will pay tribute throughout 2018 to its Exceptional Caregivers – who bring life, enjoyment, and independence, to their clients daily.

Thoughts on Caregiving ... BROOKE CARRIGER – “I enjoy being a caregiver

because I have always known that I wanted to help people. It is a great reward to help people that are in need of it and to know that you can make a difference in their life. I treat my clients like family and how I would want to be treated. I believe that makes all the difference in the world.”

EDNA FOSTER – “Brooke is punctual and upbeat.

Client Edna Foster (left) with Caregiver Brooke Carriger

She is always pleasant and yet efficient. She seems to have a great deal of medical knowledge. Brooke does a good job of keeping up with my appointments and gets me there in a timely manner. I trust her to deliver great care to me.”

Perfect Team to Care for Your Ears When you visit an otolaryngologist (commonly known as an ENT), you may also see an audiologist in the same visit. This is because the two professions work hand in hand to properly diagnose common ear concerns including recurrent ear infections, hearing loss and ringing in the ears. Danielle Warner, M.D., otolaryngologist, and Katherine Honeycutt, AuD, audiologist, both practice with Piedmont Physicians ENT in Newnan and work together with their patients to evaluate their ears and determine the best course of treatment. At a patient’s visit, the ENT will diagnose if the ear drum is normal and intact, making sure no fluid is present, and the audiologist will diagnose if drainage or wax buildup is altering the patient’s hearing and determine if the ENT should cleanup the eardrum or treat the person’s hearing first. “Hearing tests confirm or rule out nerve damage,” says Honeycutt. “A hearing test is like a measuring stick for the doctor to determine the effective treatment plan.” When should you see an ENT and get a hearing test: • Sudden hearing loss. If you are otherwise healthy and in 1-2 days, notice hearing is down, call your ENT and get a hearing test. You could be suffering from sudden hearing loss and if treated early, hearing can be fully restored. • Sudden, constant ringing in one or both ears. • Recurrent ear infections. You might need surgery to place ear tubes. • Dizziness or off balance – an ENT/Audiologist can rule out inner ear disease. • Persistent exposure (week or longer) to loud noise. • Over age of 60, unless you have a family history of hearing loss at an earlier age. • To obtain a prescription for hearing aids. Insurance companies require medical clearance from a physician stating there is no other treatment available to restore ones hearing. It is important to note that while the physician can prescribe hearing aids, their office does not provide or sell them. • For children, if parents notice a speech delay or that their child is not saying words correctly. Speech delay can be attributed to fluid in the middle ear space and often times, if children hear sounds in an abnormal way they will repeat back how they hear them. • Persistent ear pain or drainage other than wax. “Many people haven’t had a hearing test since grade school,” added Warner. “As a society, we should put more importance on hearing.” Once a medical professional has identified hearing loss, it is a good idea to get your hearing checked annually, unless you experience a sudden change in hearing. A hearing test is also performed before or after ear surgery (i.e. tubes) to establish a baseline. “It is important to protect yourself around loud noises by wearing ear plugs or noise cancelling headphones,” warns Warner. “This is especially important for individuals in the lawn care business, around power tools, at a hunting/shooting range and when attending concerts or NASCAR events.

Piedmont Newnan Hospital receives Get With The Guidelines-Stroke Gold Plus Quality Achievement Award

Piedmont Newnan Hospital is proud to be a presenting sponsor of Relay for Life of Coweta County for over 20 years and honored to serve cancer patients in this community.

American Heart Association Award recognizes Piedmont Newnan’s commitment to quality stroke care

“Piedmont Newnan is dedicated to improving the quality of care for our stroke patients by implementing the American Heart Association’s Get With The Guidelines-Stroke initiative,” said Debbie Camp, Stroke Program Manager. “The tools and resources provided help us track and measure our success in meeting evidenced-based clinical guidelines developed to improve patient outcomes.” Piedmont Newnan additionally received the association’s Target: StrokeSM Honor Roll Elite award. To qualify for this recognition, hospitals must meet quality measures developed to reduce the time between the patient’s arrival at the hospital and treatment with the clot-buster tissue plasminogen activator, or tPA, the only drug approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to treat ischemic stroke.

The Coweta County Commissioners and City of Newnan Mayor Keith Brady recently proclaimed May as Stroke Awareness Month, stressing the importance of knowing the early warning signs of a stroke. Piedmont Newnan Hospital has received the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s Get With The Guidelines®-Stroke Gold Plus Quality Achievement Award. The award recognizes the hospital’s commitment to ensuring stroke patients receive the most appropriate treatment according to nationally recognized, research-based guidelines, which are designed using the latest scientific evidence. Piedmont Newnan earned the award by meeting specific quality achievement measures for the diagnosis and treatment of stroke patients at a set level for a designated period. These quality measures are designed to help hospital teams follow the most up-to-date, evidence-based guidelines with the goal of speeding recovery and reducing death and disability for stroke patients.

“We are pleased to recognize Piedmont Newnan for their commitment to stroke care,” said Eric E. Smith, M.D., national chairman of the Get With The Guidelines Steering Committee and an associate professor of neurology at the University of Calgary in Alberta, Canada. “Research has shown that hospitals adhering to clinical measures through the Get With The Guidelines quality improvement initiative can often see fewer readmissions and lower mortality rates.” According to the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association, stroke is the No. 5 cause of death and a leading cause of adult disability in the United States. On average, someone in the U.S. suffers a stroke every 40 seconds and nearly 795,000 people suffer a new or recurrent stroke each year. Y Y Y About Get With The Guidelines Get With The Guidelines® is the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s hospital-based quality improvement program that provides hospitals with tools and resources to increase adherence to the latest research-based guidelines. Developed with the goal of saving lives and hastening recovery, Get With The Guidelines has touched the lives of more than 6 million patients since 2001. For more information, visit heart.org. ®

Coweta County’s Dunaway Gardens in Roscoe is one of the 30 gardens featured in “Seeking Eden: A Collection of Georgia’s Historic Gardens,” a lavishly illustrated book about some of the state’s most beautiful and inspiring gardens by authors Staci L. Catron and Mary Ann Eaddy.

“Murder in Coweta County” Events Planned for July 17-18, 2018 70 Years after Murder in Coweta County “Behind the Story/Behind the Movie” The Coweta County Convention & Visitor’s Bureau and the Newnan Carnegie Library are collaborating to present a two-night event featuring the movie “Murder in Coweta County.” This year marks the 70th anniversary of the murder and 35 years since the movie aired. Dick Atkins, the producer of the CBS made-for-TV movie, will discuss the memories of making the movie in neighboring counties in 1982. The movie was based on the book of the same name written by Margaret Anne Barnes, a local reporter at the time of the Wallace trial. It aired in February of 1983 and starred Andy Griffith and Johnny Cash. Events begin Tuesday, July 17 at 6 p.m. with a screening of the movie at the Carnegie Library in downtown Newnan. Atkins and Winston Skinner will talk about the movie prior to the screening and then field questions and discuss more after it. Wednesday, July 18 at 6:30 p.m. a panel discussion is planned in the second floor courtroom in the historic courthouse. Taking part in the discussion with Atkins and moderator, Skinner, will be some relatives of the real people involved in the “murder” events and portrayed in the movie. Among those anticipated to join Atkins on the panel include relatives of the victim, Wilson (aka William) Turner; relatives of Steve Smith (owner of the murder site Sunset Tourist Camp); relatives of Judge Samuel Boykin; relatives of Meriwether Co. Sheriff Hardy Collier as well as a relative of one of the accused, Henry Mobley, among others. Various memorabilia, including some items once owned by the villain of the movie, Meriwether County resident John Wallace, will be on display at the historic courthouse in Newnan that Wednesday evening. There is no charge for admission, but reservations are required because of seating limitations. For the first event at the Carnegie, call the Library at 770-683-1347. For the second event at the Historic Courthouse, call the CVB at 770-254-2627.

Catron, director of the Cherokee Garden Library, Kenan Research Center at the Atlanta History Center, and Eaddy, a former educator retired from the Historic Preservation Division of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, will talk about Georgia’s most treasured gardens at the June 12 meeting of the Coweta County Master Gardener Extension Volunteers. Catron and Eaddy were inspired to research and write about Georgia gardens dating from the mid-18th to the early 20th centuries that were documented 85 years ago by Atlanta’s Peachtree Garden Club. How had the gardens fared over the decades, they wondered. Did any of them still exist? “We also wanted to show how beautiful they are,” Eaddy says. “We sought geographic distribution across the state and wanted to feature both public and private gardens with enough integrity relative to their original design left so people could understand that these were historic spaces.”

As for Dunaway, the authors note that it was a garden begun by a woman, actress Hetty Jane Dunaway, that was allowed to fade We’re Newly-Renovated and Now Also ... away after she died. The garden was rescued and restored by another woman, Jennifer Bigham, who opened it to the public. “The story to me Famous Hot Dogs, was how the garden was NEW Chili Dogs, BBQ, conceived by one woman Brunswick Stew, then brought back to life Gumbo & More! by another woman,” says Eaddy.

Every business needs a continuous flow of new customers and repeat customers. It’s hard enough work to capture customers – those who discover your product and service and then spend their hard-earned money with you.

Walk-Ins Welcome

In order to succeed, you must know who your prime customer is and is not. Focus on the prime. Then, serve those customers well. The prime is your bread and butter, your cake before the icing, the foundation of your business success and sustainability. Once you’ve connected and grown your prime customers, answer these two questions:

1 2

Why do some customers consider your business their favorite? In other words, what makes them loyal to you? What separates you from all your competitors? Why have some customers stopped coming? Or rather, why are they not coming back?

Leave Nothing to Chance

You have a loyal following. That’s good. Do all you can to keep them. You have those who haven’t returned. You need to know if it was a bad experience, dissatisfaction in the product or service, intervention by a competitor, pricing, availability, or some other negative which you might have the opportunity to control. Determine if you can earn a second chance with these former customers. And to grow your business faster, find the people in the middle of the two questions – those who are indifferent and uncommitted. These are those who haven’t learned enough about you to trust your brand or be an advocate. They may know of you, but not about you. You have not effectively convince this middle audience enough. Your prime can be captured with targeted media marketing, because they are looking for you. But, the audience in the middle of loving and hating you is where mass media is necessary. Your message has to be told to the mass, and told often enough to build relevancy. Your brand can never grow at its strongest without those in the middle. But it can most certainly flounder without them. You need those in the middle and you need mass reach. Growth happens in the middle, not in the extremes. Build a mass media plan that challenges every extreme targeted strategy you’ve embraced in the past. And if you need help, I would love to answer more questions for you. Contact me when you are ready. Thanks so much ~ Ken

SENIOR LIVING ADVICE

Summer months can bring difficult choices for family caregivers The summer months bring with them family reunions, weddings and family vacations. If you are a caregiver to a loved one with dementia, you may be trying to decide if you should go and take your loved one; go without your loved one; or just not go. As you consider your options, here is my input. First and foremost on the decision whether you should go or not go, there is no decision to make. GO! One of the biggest issues that caregivers have is isolation. They Beth Dow just stop going. I know, it is often harder to go than to stay. But for your own mental and physical health and to be able to continue this caregiving role for the long haul, you cannot stop going. It is not being selfish, unfair, or whatever argument you come up with as a justification. You continuing to live your life to its fullest is what is best for both you and your loved one. Now, do you take your loved one or not? You must first stop thinking about what they used to love doing before the dementia. They are not the same person today. Reunions were a great chance to see family and reminisce about old times. Now for them, it becomes a place with strangers in a

strange place with activity and noise they don’t understand. It can be a frightening environment. You might say, well dad would never forgive me if he knew he missed his grandson’s wedding. But, will your father remember the wedding or even understand why he is there? I understand young people wanting their grandparents at their wedding. I understand distant family members wanting to see your loved one. But is attending that wedding or reunion what is best for your loved one with dementia? Most often, it is not. People with dementia struggle with brain failure before their bodies fail. So using their physical abilities as a measuring stick to decide if a trip should or shouldn’t be taken is not valid. The questions you need to ask are: Will my love one feel safe in a different environment with a different schedule? Will my loved one understand the event and recognize the people who are present? Is traveling with my loved one difficult and stress inducing for us both? If you have decided that the best option is for your loved one to stay at home, there may be friends or family members that will help. If not, there are home care agencies that can provide services while you are gone. Your loved one will get to keep their routine in familiar surroundings and you will come back home, refreshed and better able care for your loved one.

Smart ways to save on your wedding

When many people envision their wedding day, they probably picture the perfect dress or tuxedo, venue, flowers, cake and food. However, wedding costs can quickly add up, and couples can easily spend thousands if they don’t find ways to save money. If you’re on a tight budget or simply want to save your cash for your honeymoon, a down payment on a home or other expenses, here are some tips on how to save on your wedding day: • Don’t schedule your wedding ceremony on a Saturday. Getting married on a Friday or Sunday will save you a few thousand dollars. • Avoid peak season prices. Get married right after the wedding off-season, which occurs January through March, to avoid higher peak season prices. In general, wedding season begins in late spring and continues through early fall, with weddings peaking in June and September. • Don’t rush. Couples can save a lot of money by having a two-year engagement. They can book their venue and caterer far in advance while prices are cheaper, and they’ll have time to save cash from birthdays, Christmases and tax returns. They can also wait to receive deals on items such as save the date cards and invitations. • Get married at the courthouse. You can still wear fancy attire and invite guests, but this budget-friendly venue makes things easier and eliminates the stress and costs of a formal wedding ceremony. Then, have a small reception for your family and close friends. You’ll also have more money for the honeymoon. • Hold your ceremony and reception in the same place. This prevents transporting the bridal party and worrying about out-of-town guests getting lost. If you get married in a hotel, flowers can easily be moved to the reception area and you might get a deal on food, if a lot of guests book rooms in the hotel. This location could also be used for the rehearsal dinner. • Shop for white dresses that aren’t wedding gowns. Buying a prom dress or white bridesmaid dress and embellishing it, rather than buying an official wedding gown, can save thousands. Or,

find a previously-owned dress on Ebay, Once Wed or PreOwnedWeddingDresses. com. • Find ways to save on your wedding cake. Rather than having a large, tiered wedding cake, have someone make the top layer for a pedestal plate and then have sheet cakes for caterers to cut and serve to guests. Or, have cupcakes or cookies instead. • Take advantage of the grocery store. To save money, order your flowers and cake from a grocery store rather than a bakery or florist. • Limit alcohol options. Instead of offering guests endless alcohol choices, have only beer and wine or one signature drink. • Choose a venue that doesn’t need much decoration. Also, if you get married around the winter holidays, many venues are already beautifully decorated. • Make your own bouquets and centerpieces. Purchase and arrange your own flowers or get help from someone who is crafty. Another economical option is potted plants in Mason jars as centerpieces. • Shop at big sales. You can save lots of money by purchasing bridesmaids’ gifts during Black Friday sales or buying holiday dresses during the holiday shopping season that can be used as bridesmaids’ dresses. Also, shop online, such as on Amazon.com, to find deals on items such as ties and pocket squares for groomsmen. • Get secondhand items. Borrow décor from friends and family members who were recently married. • Seek help to reduce costs and fees. Delivery fees can quickly add up, so ask someone to help with picking up the flowers, dessert, etc. Also, allow loved ones to offer their services in exchange for a wedding gift, such as making the wedding cake or groom’s cake or serving as the DJ.

Make Vacation Bible School a part of your children’s summer plans Vacation Bible School, or VBS, has a been a constant for children every summer for years. The first VBS can be traced back to Hopeville, Illinois, in 1894. D.T. Miles, a public school teacher, who wanted to share more about the Lord than she could in the public schools. Fast forward and churches this summer fill to the brim with children, volunteers and pastors all celebrating with music, skits, crafts and the Bible. I have seen first hand the powerful impact VBS has on both children, families and the church. As a former Director of Children’s Ministries, I want to share a list some churches offering VBS in our our area and thank all those who help put on these activities. It takes countless people and months of preparation to put together these wonderful educational and fun summer events. In this day and age of social media and so many things vying for our children's attention, the good news is that churches this summer will still be filled to the brim with laughter, songs, and children jumping up and down for Jesus!

Kitchen

with Angela Like sweet tea with lemon? Try it in a cake!

When I realized I hadn’t yet shared a dessert recipe here in the Shopper Kitchen all year, I quickly realized it was time to remedy the situation, so here’s a sweet treat that’s perfect for this season! Thanks to the internet, we now have an amazing array of recipes at our fingertips all the time. If you’re like me, you may even have a Pinterest board or two devoted to recipes you wish to try—or at least to dream about trying. Not long ago, I saw a Facebook recipe for a cake said to taste like sweet tea and lemonade. Intrigued, I purchased all the ingredients for the cake and got ready to bake. But just before I fired up the oven, I noted the reviews for the cake were consistently low, with lots of 1- and 2-star ratings. The cake, it turns out, was too dry, and I’d rather have no cake than a dry cake. That recipe got tossed. Yet I loved the idea of a cake flavored with sweet tea and lemon, so I searched through my recipes and considered which ingredients work well in the cakes I like best. Then I decided to experiment with flavoring the cake batter with tea and the frosting with lemon, and here’s the result, a cake that made me happy (it wasn’t dry!), and my husband said, “That one’s a keeper.” I hope you’ll want to keep it too!

The Film Fix

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

Capsule Reviews. (Rating System - A “Fix" is recommended and a “No Fix” isn’t.) In Theatres Now Solo: A Star Wars Story … Fix RATING Saved by Donald Glover’s affected, but interesting, performance as the cape wearing Lando, “Solo: A Star Wars Story,” is much better than the troubled production that spawned it. While certainly not a bad film, this Han Solo origin story feels soft and definitely hints at the “Star Wars” universe future, one in which there are likely more porgs on the horizon. This potentially edgy narrative has a young Han (played by Alden Ehrenreich) escaping enslavement on one planet by joining the Empire on another. Of course, he washes out and becomes part of a ragtag team of robbers led by the mysterious Beckett (Woody Harrelson). And this is where Han quickly proves himself valuable as a crack pilot. Along the way, he gains the friendship of Chewbacca (Joonas Suotamo) and the flashy Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover). The “Star Wars” mythology is laced throughout “Solo,” which effectively undercuts the film’s independence due to the need to connect it to the franchise. Unlike “Rogue One,” Han’s standalone story can’t shake the cutes that also marred “The Last Jedi.” What could have been a gritty space Western with bite becomes another watered down adventure installment that fails to distinguish itself enough to be truly memorable. H H H H H

Deadpool2 … Fix RATING

“Deadpool 2” is funnier and more action-packed than its predecessor. Filled with unconventional kills, four-letter words, sexual references, and even more idiosyncratic kills that leave a high, but comedic, bodycount, fans will be thrilled. H H H H H

Fahrenheit 451 (HBO) … V No Fix RATING HBO’s adaptation of Ray Bradbury’s classic novel “Fahrenheit 451” is an awful miss. This ill-conceived adaptation from director Ramin Bahrani and screenwriter Amir Naderi borrows hints from the source material, but ultimately forgets the inherent tension that so permeated it. Spoiler here, one of the devices Bradbury used was the overarching threat of nuclear war to help keep things on a constant knife’s edge. There’s none of that in Bahrani’s film. H H H H H

Life of the Party … V No Fix RATING The always funny McCarthy is surrounded by nothing of substance in the weightless “Life of the Party.” Away from the big screen, Melissa McCarthy is the proud mother of two, but from watching her in “Life of the Party,” you wouldn’t know it. Aside from a few scant moments of chuckle-inducing nonsense, this film is incompetently made and terribly insincere. In the film, McCarthy plays Deanna, an empty-nester whose husband has left her. Lost, she decides to join her coed daughter at school in order to complete the college degree that evaded her when she was younger. Raunchy laughs are expected. Oddly, “Life of the Party” is not concerned with the reality of modern divorce, the relationship of mothers and daughters, or the value of a good college education. It does serve, however, as a launching pad for McCarthy’s humor. But the PG-13 script is way too restrained and limiting, and stuck in low gear. H H H H H

RBG … Fix RATING The inspiring documentary, “RBG,” can’t contain its love for its subject. And that’s why it’s such a wonderful film. Wildly over-the-top and extraordinarily meta, the tilted, self-parody “Deadpool 2” loops back on itself to find a kind of rare profundity. I liked it, and I want to see it again. When Wade Wilson aka Deadpool (the “ugly” Ryan Reynolds) loses someone close to him at the hands of ruthless armed killers, he sets out to get some old-fashioned revenge. “Time to make the chimichangas,” again. As Deadpool plots his killing spree, the true blue-steel Colossus (voiced by Stefan Kapicic) desperately wants to channel that pain forcing him into the hero role. Of course, as we know, Deadpool is having none of it. And in time, he’ll assemble his own team of misfit mutants he calls X-Force. But a man from the future named Cable (Josh Brolin) will come a knocking, which causes all sorts of violent, destructive mayhem. To break the fourth wall Deadpool-style, that’s all the spoilers you’re gonna get.

A love story, “RBG” is about one woman’s love for the law, as well as her loving relationship with her supportive husband. There are no warts on display in this film, and that feels exactly right. The second woman to be appointed to the US Supreme Court, Ruth Bader Ginsburg is an iconic presence in American jurisprudence. Her achievements in the law outside of her place on the Court had already more than qualified her for documentary treatment, but recently, having achieved a pop culture following, a film about her seemed all but inevitable. And co-directors Julie Cohen and Betsy West do an excellent job balancing the lighter side of her legacy with the meatier and most important aspects that certainly make her the Notorious RBG. H H H H H

Terminal … Fix RATING Visually, “Terminal” is really something. Bathed in neon, day-go fluorescents and set in an odd, almost futuristic station, it’s interesting to watch. But the

often bizarre story fails to engage, even though the cast is eclectic and top shelf. When hitmen Alfred (Max Irons) and Vince (Dexter Fletcher) take a high-risk job, they soon realize that they may have bitten off more than they can chew. And when they encounter curious waitress Annie (Margot Robbie), they are drawn into a mystery that might take them down. Along the way, we meet the depressed Bill (Simon Pegg) and a weird janitor (Mike Myers), who may be hiding something. Aside from the visuals, the draw here is clearly Robbie. She’s sexy and has some fun with the character, but the script doesn’t make the most of her radiance. And seeing Myers on screen is a surprising treat, but again, it’s a performance in need of better writing. “Terminal” is fun to look at, if, at the same time, frustrating to digest. H H H H H

June Releases: Oceans 8 … June 9 This “Oceans 11” spinoff flips the script casting an all women team led by Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett. The member of the Ocean family in this one is Debbie (Bullock), who is released from prison and plans a new heist at New York City’s annual Met Gala with an all-star team of larceny experts. Gary Ross (“Seabiscuit,” “Hunger Games”) directs. H H H H H

Incredibles 2 … June 15 Finally, we get a sequel to Pixar’s wonderful 2004 “The Incredibles.” The first superhero family is back and this time Mr. Incredible (Craig T. Nelson) has to play Mr. Mom, as wife Helen (Holly Hunter) aka Elastigirl is called back into action. But saving the world might be easier than taking care of Jack-Jack, as his destructive powers continue to develop. H H H H H

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom June 22 Hopefully “Fallen Kingdom” will be an improvement on 2015’s hit reboot of the dinosaur science fiction series. Let’s face it, aside from some scary and thrilling moments, there were problems with “Jurassic World.” In this film, Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are back to mount a campaign to rescue the dinos from extinction as the island’s dormant volcano roars to life. Jeff Goldblum returns to the franchise with this installment. H H H H H (Jonathan W. Hickman is an entertainment attorney, filmmaker, college professor, and novelist.

Davis and Park Chosen to Represent CFEMC at National Rural Electric Cooperative Association’s Youth Tour Over 100 Georgia students to take part in leadership experience in Washington D.C.

Madison Davis

Jasmine Park

Coweta Fayette Electric Membership Corporation (CFEMC) has selected Madison Davis, a junior at Sandy Creek High School, and Jasmine Park, a junior at East Coweta High School, to attend the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association’s Annual Youth Tour to be held in Washington, D.C. June 7-14. “We’re excited to have Madison and Jasmine represent our EMC on this tour,” Chellie Phillips, Vice President of Communications and Public Relations, said. “They are both outstanding students and it makes us proud that we have the opportunity to provide this experience for them.” Participants in the program learn about electric cooperatives, but they also have a chance to see sights of interest in our nation’s capital as well. This year’s students will see: Korean War Memorial, Lincoln Memorial, Vietnam War Memorial, WWII Memorial and Reflecting Pool, Tour Mount Vernon and Arlington Cemetery, see a theatrical production, visit the Smithsonian’s, the FDR Memorial and much more. Georgia students will join over 1,600 students from across the United States in activities that are designed to provide leadership training and encourage high school students to make a difference in their home communities. Madison is the daughter of Jerry and Sue Davis. She maintains a 4.0 GPA while taking AP Classes, serving as team captain for the Sandy Creek Girls’ Varsity Soccer team, and being a member of both the Academic Bowl Team and Library Team. She is an intern with both the Fayette Chamber of Commerce and Christian City. Madison plans to earn a degree in International Business or Finance and ultimately pursue her MBA. Jasmine is the daughter of Esther Chu and Jay Park. She is a member of the Science Olympiad team, Mu Alpha Theta, serves as Key Club secretary, provides web master services for the STEM academy and is a varsity athlete on the Cross-Country team. She volunteers at Piedmont Newnan Hospital, Bridging the Gap and Atlanta Homeless. Because of her strong interest in science and math, Jasmine plans to pursue a career in a STEM related field such as medicine and health. Coweta Fayette EMC is a member-owned cooperative providing electricity and related services to over 80,000 consumers in Coweta, Fayette, Heard, Fulton, Clayton, Meriwether, Spalding and Troup counties.

The first day of spring was March 20th. As a Realtor, we have seen activity pick up tremendously the last two months. Home owners have listed their homes for this busy time and contacted real estate agents for assistance in pricing and marketing. Many sellers have already closed and moved on. There is still time left for you to capture the busy selling season. The next part of this article will provide some helpful tips, from Realtor. com, for selling your home.

TIP #1 Get realistic about how much your home is worth It is natural to think your home is priceless, or hope it is worth at least more than when you bought it. Many sellers make the mistake of placing a pie-in-the-sky price on their home with the hopes that some buyer will bite. But the reality is, overpriced homes tend to sit and sit on the market. Potential buyers begin to think that something is “wrong” with a house when it sits, on the market, and become apprehensive to pursue the property. You want to be able to make a great first impression when the home hits the market. A correct price can often result in multiple offers and a contract price well-above list price.

TIP #2 Keep clutter from creeping in

Visit Our Showroom 7 Tower Place, Newnan

The spring time is the best time to sell your home. More homes are sold between springtime through the fall than any other time of the year (per GAMLS). Real estate correlates with both the weather and school year. Buyers prefer to look at homes when the weather is nice. Families prefer to move their families once the school year is over so kids don't have to change schools mid-year. The last day of school for Coweta County is May 25th. When considering the average market time to sell, a 30-60 day closing process, it's best to list in the spring to accomplish a late spring or summer move.

Clutter can make a spacious home feel claustrophobic. It is crucial that you toss, donate, gift, or recycle anything you do not love or use. This is also true for those hidden areas like your closets and cabinets. Buyers will poke their heads in these areas. You must also be able to de-personalize your property. Buyers will need to be envision themselves in your home. Family pictures, souvenirs, trophies, etc., along with clutter, prevent the buyers from doing so.

TIP #3 Keep your home show-ready 24/7 It can be difficult to keep your home picture-perfect for buyers all the time, but it is well worth the pain and suffering. Having your property listed on the market will require you to live a certain way while your home is listed. This means keeping your home clean and presentable at all times. This includes smells and pets. Landscaping and keeping a yard “fresh” is to not be overlooked. You do not know when that perfect buyer will be calling to your home!

Arguably the best fries in town. ***** It appears Uncle Maddio’s is reopening as “now hiring” signs are in the store windows. The pizza parlor shut down for several weeks and no one was sure what was going on. ***** Luck is hard work residue. ***** Newnan Junior Service League presented Coweta CASA with a check for $20,000. The money will be used to recruit and train new “Court Appointed Special Advocates” for children in Coweta County. ***** The Coweta Community Foundation has announced the establishment of a Bike Coweta Fund with the Foundation as a way for bicycling enthusiasts and supporters to help make Coweta a safe and bikefriendly community. Chris Doane, one of Bike Coweta’s board members, says they are “dedicated to advocating on behalf of local and visiting cyclists in Coweta County. Bike Coweta’s goals are to provide a safe and bicycle-friendly community to local citizens and to encourage cycling tourism to the area.” *****

The Coweta Community Foundation has announced the establishment of the Friends of Coweta Pickleball Fund with the Foundation. “Pickleball is an inexpensive sport compared to almost any other sport, but currently we have limited courts and limited times when the courts can be used since basketball and volleyball take precedence,” said local pickleball enthusiast Billy Perkins. He said pickleball is the country’s fastest-growing sport, and according to the Sports & Fitness Industry Association, pickleball now has nearly 2.5 million players. ***** Jennifer Key has been named chief nursing officer at Piedmont Newnan Hospital, bringing with her more than 19 years of experience in nursing and leadership. “Jennifer has been an integral part of the hospital’s leadership team, leading women’s services since 2014,” Michael Robertson, CEO of Piedmont Newnan, said. “She brings a strong passion and ability to engage all levels of nursing and hospital operations.” ***** Never use your wizard wand to stir your coffee. ***** The Coweta County Convention & Visitor’s Bureau and the Newnan Carnegie Library are collaborating to present a two-night event featuring the movie “Murder in Coweta County.” This year marks the 70th anniversary of the murder and 35 years since the movie aired. Dick Atkins, the producer of the CBS made-for-TV movie, will discuss the memories of making the movie in neighboring counties in 1982. The movie was based on the book of the same name written by Margaret Anne Barnes, a local newspaper reporter at the time of the Wallace trial. It aired in February of 1983 and starred Andy Griffith and Johnny Cash. The events will be in mid-July. ***** The Newnan Police Department is now an official “Safe Place,” a location where youths can seek safety after running away or being kicked out of their homes. Such designations act as shelters until help agencies can meet with the kids to assess their needs and get them housed and fed. *****
