Encouraging Words

Publisher’s PAGE

____________________________________

_________     

Sometimes my wife leaves a voice message that makes me go, “wait, what did she say?” Not too long ago I got just such a message. Usually, if she doesn’t reach me, she will just text. But no text this time, just the voice message. 1918 - 2018

I should have picked up on that clue. The message went like this: “The walls are flooding. I’m not kidding, the walls are literally flooding.” This was said in a somewhat incredulous tone, one of those: “you’ve got to be kidding me,” “this isn’t really happening,” “why haven’t you answered your phone,” “Get home now” type tones. “Wait, what did she say?” And right about that time, one of my employees said, “your wife is on the phone.” Sure enough, turns out a water line leading up to one of the upstairs showers broke in two places. Water ran for some time between the outside walls and the interior room sheetrock. Eventually, the sheetrock just gave up and we got the infamous “the walls are flooding.” By the time I got home, about every towel, blanket and anything else that would absorb water was outside. All were soaking wet. And my wife was working away with two or three mops at once, trying to somehow dam the river. The good news is our house is on a slab. Thus, no water cascading down into a lower level. The bad news is our house is on a slap. Thus, water just spread throughout the entire first floor. I started in on the calls: plumbers to fix the leaks; the insurance company to start that whole insurance thing. This is the first time in 50-plus years I’ve experienced a freezing pipe break. I’ve lived in Oklahoma, Nebraska, Washington, D.C., and even Alaska. And the only time I get a pipe break is in Georgia. Go figure. Fast forward to today. All the carpet, wood flooring and tile are gone. The movers came and did just that, hauling off just about every piece of furniture from the first floor. All the bottom cabinets in the kitchen are gone. All the plates and books and silverware and pots and well, pretty much everything, is gone. We have a refrigerator and a stove. But try cooking for more than a couple of days without running water and it gets old. Real old. We finally rigged up the old sink balanced between two sawhorses. Having a second story helps. Knowing that our “stuff ” is safe in some warehouse is comforting, especially when you know there are thousands of people who just went through three separate hurricanes and have no “stuff.” No stuff, no nothing. We are now in the rebuilding phase. We got a lot of suggestions about where to get this or that in Atlanta. We intentionally did not. Everything we are doing is local. Our contractor is local. The people who cleaned up and tore up floors and moved our stuff are local. Our flooring is coming from a local company and they will also install it. All the carpentry, the cabinets and sheetrock are being done by local labor. Everything we’ve purchased so far has come from local sources. I’m in the business of promoting local business. That’s my job. Everything I need to rebuild I have found right here in Coweta County. And that makes me happy. Shopping local keeps tax dollars here. It keeps locals employed. It makes for a better community. Let’s all do our part. Until next time.

We Believe… It’s never too late in life to learn something new. Renaissance sculptor, painter, architect and poet Michelangelo, at age 87, said, “I am still learning.” So there must be something to it! Research has shown that it’s not only your body that needs exercise to stay fit — your brain needs a workout, too. Activities like reading, playing a musical instrument, learning a new language, playing bridge and other cognitively stimulating exercises have been associated with a slower rate of mental decline. One of the best ways to stay mentally sharp is to embrace a love for lifelong learning. According to the National Education Association there are many advantages of lifelong learning for retirees, including the opportunity to: • Pursue your passions. You’re no longer trying to complete a degree or fulfill educational requirements, so you can pursue areas that speak to your passions or explore a subject just for the fun of it. • Take your time. A common concern of retired individuals is having so much free time and wondering how to keep busy. Immersing yourself in courses of study that really interest you can make the hours sail by. • Keep your mental edge. Learning and studying works your brain just like a treadmill works your legs and lungs. • Stay socially engaged. It’s easy to become isolated after you retire but enrolling in a class or workshop can open up new social connections, which sociologists have found can increase happiness along with physical and emotional health. A retirement community that promotes active aging is a great resource for the learning opportunities that keep the mind engaged and fit!

What happens if you take too much acetaminophen? The flu virus is sweeping the nation with the state of Georgia reporting over 670 hospitalizations in the metro Atlanta area since Jan. 1. Flu sufferers looking for relief may turn to medicines containing acetaminophen, a pain-relieving drug like Tylenol, to reduce their fever and ease their symptoms. When used as directed, acetaminophen is safe and effective, but taking too much can lead to severe liver damage and potentially death.

hospitalizations and an estimated 458 deaths due to acute liver failure each year, with the highest rate among patients aged 15-24.”

“More than 600 medications, both prescription and over-the-counter, contain the active ingredient acetaminophen,” says Jeffrey Folk, M.D., Chief Medical Officer at Piedmont Newnan Hospital. “People who take more than one medicine at a time may be putting themselves at risk for an acetaminophen overdose.”

1. Always read and follow the label. Never take more medicine than the label says.

What are the symptoms of an acetaminophen overdose? Symptoms of an acetaminophen overdose may mimic flu or cold symptoms. Early signs, less than 24 hours, can include:

• • • • • • •

Cramping Fatigue Loss of appetite Nausea Stomach pain Sweating Vomiting

Worsening symptoms include urinating less than normal, pain in the upper right side of your abdomen and an enlarged liver. If you notice signs of an overdose, call your local poison control center or 911 immediately. “Acetaminophen overdose is one of the most common poisonings worldwide,” says Dr. Folk. “It accounts for more than 56,000 emergency room visits, 26,000

New Dementia Caregiver Support Group

How to use acetaminophen safely The Acetaminophen Awareness Coalition recommends these four steps to use acetaminophen safely:

2. Know if your medicines contain acetaminophen. “It is important to check the active ingredients listed on the labels of all your medicines to see if they contain acetaminophen (sometimes listed as “APAP,” “Acetam,” or other shortened versions of the word),” Dr. Folk says. “Also ask your healthcare provider or pharmacist if your medicine contains acetaminophen as the active ingredient.” 3. Take only one medicine at a time that contains acetaminophen. You can take too much acetaminophen if you use more than one medicine that contains acetaminophen at the same time. Do not exceed the recommended dose on any product containing acetaminophen. 4. Ask your healthcare provider or a pharmacist if you have questions about dosing instructions. And always inform your physician of all other medicines (over-the-counter and prescription) and supplements you take. It’s not too late to get your flu shot. Flu shots are available at Piedmont’s urgent care locations, primary care offices and at many pharmacies.

Endocrinology Care Piedmont Physicians Endocrinology of Newnan specializes in comprehensive endocrinology services.

Dementia affects one in 10 people age 65 and older, requiring many friends and family members to become caregivers for their loved ones and relatives. Piedmont Sixty Plus Services is offering a new dementia caregiver support group in Coweta County that will meet monthly and provide emotional support and practical information to family and friends caring for those with memory loss. “The more tools they have, the better the caregiver will be and this is one tool we can provide,” said Tori Sorrells, LCSW, sixty plus coordinator at Piedmont Newnan Hospital. The group is open to anyone in the community who is a nonprofessional caregiver or family member of a person with dementia. No registration is required and there is no charge for the support groups.

“Caregiving can be stressful and isolating,” said Sorrells. “This is a safe place that encourages them to express their challenges and learn from each other’s experiences.” The support group has three components – support, education and sharing of tips, tricks and advice. Members dictate each meeting based on their needs with the end goal to empower caregivers to feel more hopeful, normalize their emotions so they feel less alone, and provide informal education to help them cope with and manage the disease, as well as understand the patient and be more compassionate. The group will meet from 6 to 7:30 p.m. on the third Thursday of each month, beginning March 15, in the Thomas F. Chapman Family Cancer Wellness Center located at 775 Poplar Road, Suite 340, Newnan, Georgia, in the Piedmont Newnan Medical Plaza next to the hospital. For questions or to learn more about sixty plus services, please call 404.605.3867 or visit piedmont.org/sixty-plus.

Free educational opportunities in Coweta County Education paves the way for a better future, and sometimes people need assistance making their academic dreams come true. In Coweta County, residents have access to several free educational programs, including dual enrollment that allows high school students to take college and technical college classes, GED preparation courses and English Language Acquisition (ELA) classes. Learn more about these exciting opportunities:

Dual Enrollment High school students in grades 9 to 12 can apply for dual enrollment in West Georgia Technical College and take classes that will satisfy requirements for an associate’s or bachelor’s degree or technical college program. To enroll, students must take a free Accuplacer placement test or the ACT or SAT exams and submit an application to West Georgia Technical College. They must also meet with their high school counselor and complete required forms. Then, they can register for classes. To sign up for summer or fall semester classes, the priority deadline is April 2. “The technical programs we have set up in Coweta at CEC (Central Educational Center) are cosmetology, culinary, dental assisting, nurse aid, automotive, welding, game design, criminal justice and early childhood education,” said Leigh Cunningham, the high school coordinator for West Georgia Technical College. “Those are one or two semester programs, and they earn a technical certificate in that area that they can go to work with. Or, they can build on it and earn their diploma or associate’s degree in that area. We had a student a year or two ago who graduated from welding, and he’s making $80,000 straight out of the pro-

gram. There’s a lot of money to be made in those technical programs for students who are going straight into the work force. “We also offer core classes. Those are the degree-level courses they would need for any associate’s or bachelor’s degree. We have those available at CEC during the day, evening or online, and then we also offer some of those at the high schools. We have two classes at East Coweta and Newnan high schools, math and English. We’re looking to add more of them at each location for the fall and possibly add some at Northgate. We have a lot of options for the core classes, and it provides a lot of flexibility for scheduling. We can make it work for any student’s schedule, whether they play sports or work.” The core classes usually count toward high school graduation requirements. Students should consult with their counselor to make sure they’re on the right track. “The credits will transfer to any University System of Georgia school, but if the student goes to a private school or out of state, they’ll need to check with that school to make sure they’ll accept their credits. But in general, a lot of them do because of that agreement with the University System of Georgia. I had a student who graduated last school year and between her core credits and AP (Advanced Placement) credits, she had 56 credit hours when she started at UGA this school year. So she only has two more years to finish her four-year degree. That’s a big success story for how it can

really work for you.” All tuition fees and books for the core and technical college classes are covered by the state of Georgia. Students might need to pay a $20 lab fee for science classes or purchase a uniform for some of the technical college classes, such as nurse aid or dental assisting. “You can save a lot of money taking these classes while you’re in high school,” Cunningham said. “It’s a great opportunity for the students. Our learning environment, especially with the technical programs, is very hands-on and gets them ready for the workforce. The core classes are a good way to get a head start on those associate’s or bachelor’s degrees for students who are going into a four-year university.” For more information or to apply for dual enrollment, email DualEnroll@westgatech.edu or visit https://www.westgatech. edu/admissions/dual-enrollment/. GED classes West Georgia Technical College’s Adult Education program offers free classes to help students prepare for the GED test. The classes, available to anyone 16 years old and older, are offered at varying times at several locations: WGTC Coweta Campus (morning, afternoon and evening), Central Education Center (mornings), Goodwill Thomas Crossroads (mornings) and Ruth Hill Elementary (evenings). Individuals who are under 18 must have a parent or guardian present during registration and should bring a withdrawal form from their last high school in order to participate. All students mustCheck attend aus registration out at session and complete a skills assessment before starting classes. The skills assessment gives instructors an idea of what skills stu-

dents need to work on. Then, students are placed in class and can work toward attaining their GED. The time it takes to earn a GED varies and depends on students’ skill levels, how long they’ve been out of school, whether they use any academic skills (math, reading or writing) daily, whether they have any learning disabilities and how much time they’re willing to invest in and out of the classroom. The county’s GED testing center is at the WGTC Coweta Campus. The cost for the GED test is $160 ($40 per subtest, four subtests). Students must pass all four subtests to earn a GED: Reasoning Through Language Arts, Math, Social Studies and Science. Students who qualify are eligible to receive GED testing scholarships. Last year, WGTC Adult Education students were awarded more than $20,000 in GED testing scholarships. The WGTC Adult Education program led the state last year for students completing GED classes. Over 450 students enrolled in classes in Coweta County and almost 100 earned the GED credential. For more information on GED class registration or testing, visit www.westgatech.edu/adulted or call 1-855-500-GEDS (4337). English Language Acquisition (ELA) classes West Georgia Technical College’s Adult Education program also offers free English Language Acquisition (ELA) classes for beginners or those working toward earning their GED. The classes are available at Central Education Center during the evenings. Students must bring government issued ID to the registration session. For more information, visit www.westgatech.edu/ adulted or call 1-855-500-GEDS (4337).

Henbit is a winter annual weed that germinated this past fall and early winter. On warm winter days, it takes advantage of the sunshine and grows well in areas where soil moisture is good and turfgrass is thin. This weed is often confused with purple deadnettle, but the same herbicide will control both weeds. Henbit is nearing the end of its life cycle and will die back as the weather gets warmer in late spring and summer. The best time to treat for this weed is in the fall when you can apply a preemergent prior to its germination. I have spoken with several homeowners already this year whose lawns have been taken over by henbit lately. You can apply a herbicide to control broadleaf weeds such as henbit, but if you don’t include a management strategy for improving your lawn along with a chemical control option, then you are going to wind up right back where you started this time next year. The best way to control henbit in lawns is to manage your turfgrass so that it is thick and lush, making it difficult for henbit to grow. Make sure that you soil test so that you can fertilize and lime as needed for a healthy soil. If your pH and fertilization are not adequate, then you can bet you’re going to deal with more weeds than you would otherwise. Post emergent herbicides with 2,4-D listed as the active ingredient will control henbit. There are also 3-way products containing 2, 4-D that are available,

and they will control a wider range of broadleaf weeds. No matter which product you choose, make sure that the herbicide you purchase is labeled for application on your particular type of turfgrass and always read and follow all label directions. Herbicides should be applied when weeds are small. As weeds reach maturity, they become harder to control. Even if you choose to treat henbit with a post emergent herbicide, you should still soil test. Fertilize and lime your lawn based on the soil test recommendations and also consider applying a preemergent herbicide in early fall to help prevent these weeds next year. CAUTION: Do not apply herbicides to lawns that are in spring transition, that is – when they are greening up. You also want to avoid applying herbicides when temperatures are above 90 degrees. For more information on lawn management this spring, call the Coweta County Extension office at 770254-2620 and ask for UGA publication, “Strategies to Control Winter Weeds” and “Soil Testing for Home Lawns”.

SHOPPER Real Estate Fair Housing – Celebrating 50 Years

The Senoia Optimist Club will be hosting a Pancake Breakfast Fundraiser on Saturday, March 24, at the Senoia Senior Center, 310 Howard Rd., from 7-10 am. Tickets are only $5 for the freshly cooked, all you can eat breakfast. Volunteers from the Senoia Optimist Club will serve pancakes, sausage, juice, milk, and hot coffee. Kids under 3 will eat for free. The proceeds of the breakfast will allow the Senoia Optimists to support the Senoia Area Athletic Association as well as other youth programs and activities in the community.

You may now know this but the Fair Housing Act turns 50 this year. On April 11th, 1968 the Fair Housing Act was enacted into Law. The Act prohibited discrimination based on race, color, religion and national origin. In 1974, the Fair Housing Act was amended to prohibit discrimination based on sex (National Association of Realtors). Unfortunately, the pursuit of equal housing did not come without resistance, harassment and violence. It is important to note that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated just a week before the Fair Housing Act was passed. In later years, the Fair Housing Act was amended to prohibit discrimination based on gender, disability and familiar status. This may be hard to believe but for many years, where you wanted to live was not necessarily a free choice. Where you lived was often determined by the color of your skin. Builder, brokers, rental property managers, etc. would practice “steering.” This involves inducing customers to live in neighborhoods of the same race. Before fair housing, many real estate brokers and investors would convince the residents of a neighborhood that new, minority owners were moving there, in hopes of causing the property values to go down. The brokers and investors would then buy the properties at a reduced value. This is called “blockbusting.” If you see “steering” or “blockbusting” happening today, please report it. These are clear violations of the Fair Housing Act.

Independent Senior Living Today, the U.S. Housing and Urban Development Independent Senior Living (HUD) is ran by Secretary Ben Carson and his staff. HUD and its staff are essential to fair housing. Their mission is as follows; “to create strong, sustainable, inclusive communities and quality affordable homes for all. HUD is working to strengthen the housing market to bolster the economy and protect consumers; meet the need for quality affordable rental homes; utilize housing as a platform for improving quality of life; build inclusive and sustainable communities free from discrimination, and transform the way HUD does business (HUD.gov)”. HUD reports that the highest report of complaints involves discrimination based on disability (National Association of Realtors). Currently, only half the country prohibits discrimination in housing against the LGBT community (National Association of Realtors). This is likely to increase very soon.

In today’s time, many people believe that we, as a country, are more divided than ever. It is important to remember those like Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and what all they sacrificed to enable great things like the Fair Housing Act of 1968. The real estate practice, while not perfect, is more just than ever thanks to the Fair Housing Act and its amendments through the years. As a Realtor, we are held to a code of ethics. Realtors strive to be just and fair in all our transactions.

March Trends and Trendsetters Each month we cover some of the hot trends from health and wellness, fashion and style, business or even tapping into your creative side.

Building is booming New construction from roads, buildings to businesses and houses are popping up all over our area. You can’t get in your car and head anywhere without noticing it. Highway 29, Lower Fayetteville and Poplar Road are just some areas where growth is in full throttle. Roundabouts continue to be built and brand new roads seem to appear out of nowhere. Soon we will have a new exit at Poplar Road off of Interstate 85 for easy access to Newnan Piedmont Hospital. Needless to say, restaurants, gas stations and so much more are on their way. The economy is thriving right now and that is evident through all the business and real estate growth. That means employment opportunities too.

Movie theatre extravagance And an impromptu decision to go to the movies used to be easy. But before you grab your kids and keys, you might want to read this latest trend. Not long ago, I thought I would treat the SONS and take them and their friends to the movies. But Lordy, going to the movies today is a whole new adventure. I can’t remember the last time I went to the movies before this latest adventure. We have a great theatre system at home and really don’t see the need to go out to a theater and spends lots of money. But clearly things have changed in the 21st Century, and I had a lot to learn. Theaters are stepping up their game. No more sticky floors and chairs that flip up when you stand up. No waiting in long lines. Now you make reservations online and even reserve the seats you want. Now you can sit in big recliner chairs and actually put your feet up. You can still get your popcorn and candy. But now you can order pesto chicken on focaccia bread, or pepperoni pizza, steak sandwiches and tacos and cheese cake and much more. This is not your parents movie theater. Heck this wasn't even mine. Our kids

have it good and so do we. So take it from the SONS and their friends - heading to the movies is worth every penny. Everyone will leave with a smile on their face and great memories that will last a longtime.

A library with a view

Libraries were always too quiet for me and I am most often too loud for them. But that said, I love them and find them inspiring. If you don’t want to get distracted from reading by household chores or just plain old life, then I highly recommend going to one of our many beautiful libraries. The Senoia library is truly amazing and one of a kind. If you want to escape then head over there. I promise you can find a peaceful place to read and renew at this library. It overlooks a lake and has a massive covered porch. It’s a great place to relax and then hit lunch at one of the great spots in town. And don’t forget all the libraries are gearing up for their spring and summer programs so check out our calendars in The Shopper to find out more.

Faces of Philanthropy What’s raised here, stays here.

The Coweta Community Foundation hosted its first collection day for the By Kids, For Kids program recently. The event was held at Blue Fern Merchant in Downtown Newnan and resulted in $110 in donations from young philanthropists. “I’m pleased to see the young people of Coweta County get involved in learning about philanthropy at an early age,” said Will Conoly, Coweta Community Foundation board chair. “As a banker, I’m well aware that it’s never too early to learn the values of saving and giving, and it’s great that our Foundation has made this program available to local youth. I look forward to seeing how the program grows.” Last fall, the Foundation first announced its new program designed to promote philanthropy among Coweta’s youth. The Foundation began providing piggy banks for kids under the age of 14 (through eighth grade) to fill with change.

Several dates will be available this year for kids to drop off their deposits, and they even get their own passbooks to help them keep track of the amounts they are depositing and the total balance of how much money they have given throughout the year. In October and November later this year, five nonprofits will be selected that will work with children. The children themselves will vote on a recipient, and a grant for the total amount given by the kids this year will go to the organization of their choice. Banks, passbooks and further information about this program may be obtained by contacting the Foundation at 770-253-1833 or emailing info@cowetafoundation.org.

On hand for the $10,000 donation to One Roof are, from left, Jane Duenckel, One Roof board member; Jan Gregory, One Roof board member and also a member of 100 Women Who Care; Dr. David Gregory, Executive Director of One Roof; and Leah Sumner and Gwen Garrison of 100 Women Who Care. One Roof has been helping Coweta residents since it was launched by a coalition of churches in 2007, and today individual donors have become their greatest supporters. The group says its mission is “people serving the Lord in a unified way to meet the spiritual and physical needs in our community.” The organization also operates the One Roof Thrift Store on Temple Avenue. The 100 Women group was started in 2016 as a Coweta-based grassroots organization that focuses on coordinating funding for charitable organizations and needs in Coweta County. The group consists of 100 women who meet quarterly, each bringing $100 in contributions to benefit the community. Any member attending these quarterly meetings may nominate a charitable project. The need must be charitable in nature, immediate and based in Coweta County. The names of three potential projects are drawn at each meeting, with a short presentation given on each one. Members present at the meeting get to vote on which project receives the donation for that quarter, and the latest recipient is One Roof. Dr. David Gregory, executive director of One Roof, said, “We are thrilled to receive the $10,000 check. The money will be used to help those who are obviously in need, particularly those without a place to live.” He also noted that “with all the emphasis recently in the newspaper on homelessness, I think it was an appropriate time for One Roof to receive the check because we do provide assistance to folks who are homeless.” Leah Sumner, founder of 100 Women, said the group was pleased to be able to make the donation. "Just as 100 Women is a collaborative effort of women in our community to bring together our resources, One Roof is a collaborative effort to serve multiple needs of those in our community. We are pleased to be able to help further the mission of this organization.”

Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with Corned Beef and Cabbage Soup After I made my first corned beef and cabbage meal in the slow cooker about ten years ago, I enjoyed the meal so much that it became a tradition to make it on or near St. Patrick’s Day each year. The grocery stores sure make it easy. They package up this pre-brined, ready-to-cook brisket along with its own spice packet and park it by the entrance where shoppers can’t miss it. One year, though, I forgot to buy the cabbage and had to head back to the store. Later, stores started putting the cabbages right there by the packages of corned beef, a helpful pairing to any busy grocery shoppers who might have too much on their to-do lists. (Ahem.) Have you ever wondered how this cut of meat came to be known as “corned” beef? Or perhaps you’ve wondered whether it actually has anything to do with corn? I did. And it turns out that it has something to do with the salting process. It’s no surprise that salting beef as a means of preservation has been around for thousands of years, but the term “corned beef ” dates only to the 1660s. According to an article by Matt Blitz on foodandwine.com, “Originally the word

Recipe

‘corn’ came from the Germanic word ‘kurnam,’ meaning ‘small seed.’ In the 17th century, salted beef started taking on the name ‘corned beef ’ in some parts of England because of the large ‘kernels’ of rock salt used to preserve it.” And soon, Ireland became the center of the corned beef trade. I’ve often wondered why I don’t cook corned beef and cabbage more often. So this year, I’ve experimented and cooked a Corned Beef and Cabbage Soup that is a great way to enjoy the flavors of this dish anytime — and it’s also a fine way to use up any leftover corned beef you might have. You can serve this with a salad and some crusty rolls, or go all out on the Irish theme and serve it with slabs of Irish soda bread. However you choose to serve it, enjoy—and Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Corned Beef and Cabbage Soup • 2 tablespoons butter 1 cup yellow onion, chopped 2 cups celery, chopped inch pieces 2 cups baby carrots, chopped into 1/2quartered , toes pota w 4 cups unpeeled baby yello slices ch 1-in into d 1 head of cabbage, shredde h brot 8 cups low-sodium chicken 2 bay leaves 2 teaspoons coriander 1-1/2 teaspoons garlic salt, or to taste 1/2 teaspoon pepper, or to taste pped (I used thin-sliced 1/2 pound pre-cooked corned beef, cho corned beef from the deli) onions, celery, and carrots.

for a high school graduation certificate or diploma. They must also intend to pursue history as a major or minor field. The feeling of the committee is that the previous scholarships “did very little to attract the attention of students, guidance counselors, or parents,” they said. “We feel history is an important field to have some basic knowledge about, just to be a good citizen, if nothing else,” said NCHS Executive Director W. Jeff Bishop. “History helps us understand change, and understand how the world we live in came to be.” NCHS also hopes to help preserve and protect local history, and that’s nearly impossible unless people learn to appreciate it, Bishop said. “So this scholarship is really an investment in our community and its future, and part of our bid to protect and preserve its past,” Bishop said. The scholarship application is now available at the NCHS website, www.newnancowetahistoricalsociety. com. Look for it also on the NCHS Facebook page. Home school students, private and public school students, online learning students, and all other graduating seniors are invited to apply.

NCHS offers new $10,000 scholarship The Newnan-Coweta Historical Society has established a new $10,000 scholarship for local students intending to pursue a college education in a history-related field. NCHS has offered $1,000 scholarships to graduating seniors at each local public high school for many years, but the newly-established Scholarship Committee, headed by JoAnn Ray and Gary Welden, wanted to do more to encourage the study of history. The new $10,000 scholarship will be available to all local students, not just those in public schools, and will be issued in increments of $1,250 each semester. “The committee decided the historical society needs to take a position that will encourage talented students to consider a career in history-related studies and will generate enthusiasm and interest from parents, students, educators, and guidance counselors,” said Welden, who first proposed the idea to the committee. Students must be local residents and must be eligible

The deadline to submit an application is April 1.

Caregiver of the Month: Taneisha Sanders

H

ome Helpers of GA & AL will once again 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. Taneisha Sanders explains why she chooses to be a Caregiver: “I love being a caregiver. I love to

make people happy and feel good about life. I love to care for a family’s loved ones, and to put a smile on their face! Remember we all will get up in age one day and may need someone to lend a helping hand to us.” Spouse of Taneisha’s Client: “I am very appreciative of Taneisha for her sense of awareness and for being proactive.”

Can You Rule By Consensus?

I’ve seen businesses operate by consensus. Managers don’t step up to train staff to work within a prescribed system. Rather, the manager’s mode of operation allows all staff to have a say, to provide input, to experiment and test ideas, systems, and tactics. The sales structure becomes a mesh of roque representatives doing things “their way.” There are several devastating issues with consensus management: 1. The manager never captures or earns the respect from those under his/her responsibility. A title will not garner or require respect if the manager never demonstrates decisive knowledge or leadership. Who can follow someone who doesn’t lead? 2. When decisions are made, many of the representatives it affects will merely buck the system or ignore the implementation of the results. If open ideas and open discussions are so fluid, what makes anyone think the results and decisions aren’t the same. What cements compliance? What keeps rogue reps or an indecisive manger from forcing an indefinite discussion about procedures and systems? 3. Dysfunction becomes the norm. No standard or system is ever accepted, fully. Some comply, some do not. Discussions continue and manager concerns are unheeded. Now, I believe a healthy work environment thrives on input from all employees. Everyone should see the value of his/her input. Each person should have the confidence to suggest and discuss change. In the end, though, the manager must be very decisive and have the ability, knowledge, and fortitude to defend his or her decision. Then, all employees affected by the change must adhere to that system or seek other opportunities.

Zen Monkey’s News and Musings … ***** Ephebiphobia is a fear of young people. ***** Home Helpers of Georgia and Alabama recently won a pair of national awards. The first honor was a 2018 Pinnacle Club Award for growth among the Home Helpers locations. The Newnan office was recognized as the No. 3 office in growth for the past year. The second accolade – Provider of Choice Award – was presented by Home Care Pulse. Home Helpers of Georgia and Alabama scored 97 percent in client satisfaction. The company is now run by Executive Director Grant Dow, who took over the Newnan-based company from his parents, Beth and Phillip Dow. ***** A cowboy, without any cattle, is a headless horseman. ***** Stevi B’s, a popular pizza restaurant with an all-you-can-eat buffet, has closed. The pizza parlor was located in the Walmart shopping center complex on Bullsboro Drive. No sign or any other indication if they are moving or closed for good. ***** Looks like Uncle Maddio’s has met a similar fate. The pizza parlor, in Ashley Park in front of Cancer Treatment Centers of America, hasn’t opened for some time. There’s no note or other information available. A quick Google search says it is “temporarily closed.” ***** Restaurant servers who give customers plastic drinking straws they haven’t asked for will have to suck up a maximum penalty of a $1,000 fine or six months in prison under a controversial bill in California. The bill was introduced in the State Assembly by Majority Leader Ian Calderon who said he wanted to ‘raise awareness about the detrimental effects of plastic straws on our environment.” He claims more than 500 million plastic straws are thrown away every day. ***** We are all for term limits, especially for those pesky folks up in Washington, D.C. But there are exceptions to every rule. As in the case of Ginger Jackson-Queener, who has stepped down after her three-year term expired as chairwoman of the Coweta Community Foundation. She made an incredible impact, increasing funding each year and raising the visibility of local non-profits. Two thumbs up and a golf clap, madam. And to Will Conoly, the new chairman, we wish you well. ***** Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport served more passengers and conducted more aircraft movements than any other airport in the world in 2017. Pending confirmation from industry trade group Air-

ports Council International, 2017 marks the 20th consecutive year ATL will be named the busiest airport in the world. ATL remains the only airport ever to reach the 100 million passenger mark in a single year; 2017 is the third consecutive year it surpassed this milestone.

The Georgia Department of Economic Development (GDEcD) said Corvaglia Group, a Switzerland based supplier to the beverage industry, will build a new manufacturing facility in Newnan. The new operation will create a variety of advanced manufacturing jobs and bring an investment of $25 million to Coweta County. “Our economic development successes are based on strong partnerships, and Corvaglia’s decision to build a facility in Newnan is a result of these efforts,” said GDEcD Commissioner Pat Wilson. “Our economic development partners played a huge role in landing this project, and I am grateful for their commitment to the state. Coweta County is perfectly suited to meet the needs of this company, and I look forward to their future success.”

Congratulations to Coweta County EMS, which won the 2017 State of Georgia Medical Service of the Year award. “I’m so proud of our team for this great accomplishment. The CCFR Team exemplifies the true meaning of ‘Service Excellence.’ I can assure you that we will continue to provide the highest level of “All Hazards” service delivery for the citizens and visitors to Coweta County, this is our commitment to an amazing community,” said County Fire Chief Deron “Pat” Wilson.

Alan Jackson will be among the 2018 inductees to the Songwriters Hall of Fame. The association is dedicated to recognizing the work and lives of composers and lyricists who create music. To qualify for induction, a songwriter must be a published writer for a minimum of 20 years with a notable catalog of hit songs. Jackson will become one of just over 400 songwriters so honored.

***** People who fall in love lose an average of two friends each. ***** Former Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue was the “designated survivor” during President Trump’s State of the Union address. Perdue, who is now Agriculture Secretary in the Trump administration, was kept at a secured location until after the address. If the entire line of presidential succession had been wiped out in a disaster, Perdue would have become president.

***** You would have to consume 480 bananas to die from a potassium overdose. ***** The Lee Middle School Math Team recently took first place at the West Georgia regional Mathcounts competition at the University of West Georgia, earning the team a spot at the state finals. This is the fifth consecutive first place finish for the school. The team consisted of students Michael An, Matthew Nix, Do-kyong McDonald, Nathan White, Andrew Brown, Beomseok Kang, Alex Carroll, Lyong-kyong McDonald, Jiho Oh and Alex Carroll, and was sponsored by teachers Lynette Hanus and Staci Kelly. The team competed against the 40 students of the school’s math club to earn their spots on the competition team. ***** Those serving on a U-Boat in WWII had a survival rate of just 30 percent ***** Fastenal Company is furthering its partnership with West Georgia Technical College, giving $3,000 toward student scholarships for WGTC commercial truck driving students. West Georgia Tech offers both day and evening commercial truck driving courses on both the Carroll and LaGrange campuses. The day program takes eight weeks and the night program takes 10 weeks to complete. *****

***** Glass is just caramelized sand. ***** Urban Air Adventure Park recently announced that it will open a new location in the former H.H. Gregg location on Newnan Bypass Crossing. Urban Air Newnan will feature 30,000 square feet of trampoline and adventure park attractions. Urban Air Newnan will be furnished with wall-to-wall trampoline arenas, Dodgeball Courts, Stunt Airbag, Slam Dunk Tracks, Runway Tumble Track, The TUBES Obstacle Course, The Urban Warrior Course™, and Warrior Battle Beam. Urban Air Newnan will also be home to the Urban Air Adventure Hub, which includes exclusive adventure park attractions that can only be found at Urban Air, such as an Indoor Ropes Course, Indoor Climbing Walls, Pro Zone Performance Trampoline Pit, and the exhilarating new attraction Urban Air Sky Rider Indoor Coaster. Guests can also go grab a bite to eat at the Urban Cafe. ***** Newnan Fire Chief David Whitley is retiring after 30 years with the department. He first joined NFD in 1987 as a firefighter. Back then, there was one fire station and about 25 employees. Those personnel have more than doubled, and the city hopes to add a fourth station next year. We thank you for your service. *****


The Film Fix

www.thecowetashopper.com ❦ March 21-28, 2018 ❦ The SHOPPER ❦ Page 21

… 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: Black Panther - Fix RATING

not seen this 2018 update, the trailer definitely has the cheesy “Death Wish” sequel vibe. If you don’t know already, “Death Wish” is about a regular guy named Paul Kersey (Willis), who becomes a gun toting vigilante after his wife is murdered. Alternate movie suggestion: If you really want a macho action throw-back check out Vince Vaughn in “Brawl in Cell Block 99.” Vaughn is at his best as a tough criminal, who has to battle his way from prison to prison in order to save his wife (Jennifer Carpenter) from bad guys on the outside. This film, available on most streaming services, was last year’s exploitation sleeper. And the hard hitting action is relentless, as Vaughn lets his fists do most of the talking.

Earnest, socially important, and undeniably heartfelt, “Black Panther” certainly pulls the right emotional levers focusing on the theme of the forgotten and the lost. But with its questionable adherence to a quaint, outmoded monarchical state system, the film falls short of the transcendent picture it should have been. Following the death of his father as covered in “Captain America: Civil War,” T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman) has to fend off the claims by others to the Wakandan throne. My problem with this exciting and well-made film is largely that it celebrates rule by royal blood instead of by a progressive democracy. But the good news is that future installments can hopefully deal with Black Panther/T’Challa’s abdication and a transition to a more democratic political system. The utopia that is Wakanda just can’t be maintained under authoritarian rule.

§§§§§§ Game Night - V No Fix RATING Light and entertaining early, “Game Night” can’t capitalize on the romantic chemistry between it’s likable leads (Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams) and deliver on it’s comedic thriller tease. The story is about a neighborhood game night that goes terribly wrong when several couples leave the living room and the board games behind. After an amusing set-up, never, at any point, does the crime story that dominates the entire second half of “Game Night” make sense, or add the least bit of intrigue or risk. It’s all fairly incoherent and unimportant. The characters go blindly into the dangerous night, but what’s really missing is the sense of danger.

§§§§§§ March Releases: Death Wish - March 2 Holy cow! Horror auteur Eli Roth (“Cabin Fever”) and Bruce Willis tackle another adaptation of the Brian Garfield novel that was effectively made with Charles Bronson back in 1974. The numerous sequels to the original were almost uniformly awful and, although I’ve

§§§§§§ The Cured - Fix RATING - March 9 Just when you thought the zombie genre was all played out, we get “The Cured,” which tries to grapple with what happens when the zombies become human again. Following an outbreak that turns people into zombies, a cure is miraculously discovered. Slowly, the cured are returned to society only to discover that society doesn’t want or trust them anymore. Ellen Page (“Juno”) stars as a single mother, whose husband was a zombie victim. When her brother in law returns having been cured, she has to learn to live with what he may or may not have done as a zombie. One interesting concept is that once cured of the disease, the survivor remembers the terrible things that he or she did as a zombie. Intelligent and pretty scary as things begin to unravel, “The Cured” is a worthy addition to the zombie canon.

§§§§§§ Tomb Raider - March 16 Taking on the role once played by Angelina Jolie, Oscar winner Alicia Vikander is Laura Croft. In this reboot, Croft gets marooned on the same island where her father disappeared. This means that to survive and leave the island, Croft has to solve a mystery and fight her way through what appears to be from the trailers, surprise, surprise a tomb. I’m not expecting a hole lot from this one. But it’s good to see southerner and just all around great guy Walton Goggins in a prominent role playing Croft’s nemesis.

§§§§§§

Pacific Rim Uprising - March 23 I’m excited about this one. Director Guillermo del Toro’s 2013 “Pacific Rim” was both familiar and original with Godzilla like creatures facing off against enormous robots. With this sequel 2018 Oscar nominee del Toro isn’t in the director’s chair, but he is listed as one of the producers. Building on the original, the “Uprising” story follows Jake Pentecost (“Star Wars’” John Boyega), son of Stacker Pentecost (one of the leads from the first movie), who reunites Jaeger pilots to face down a new Kaiju (monster) threat. Lots of stuff will be destroyed as the battles rage.

§§§§§§ Ready Player One - March 30 Let’s hope that this science fiction film that features a lot of retro video game references doesn’t turn into another “Pixels.” Steven Spielberg brings the ‘80s infused science fiction novel by Ernest Cline (who also co-writes the screenplay) to 21st century cinemas. And from the numerous trailers available online, “Ready Player One” looks incredible. The near-future story has the creator of an important virtual reality game leaving a hidden Easter Egg behind when he dies. Finding the Easter Egg in the game will bring the finder great wealth and power over something called the OASIS. Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan), an avid gamer, joins the search, which promises to change the way the world operates. With ample 1980s references and modern special effects, this genre mashup should bring in viewers young an old.

SENIOR LIVING ADVICE

Generations continue to try to find the right balance in daily life The Sandwich Generation was a term first coined by Dorothy A. Miller in 1981. Miller originally used it to refer to women in their 30s and 40s, who were taking care of their children, while having to meet the demands of their parents and employers. The term has since grown to include both men and women, and due to societal changes and an increase in our longevity, is now affecting many generations. Beth Dow The Sandwich Generation still refers to those trying to balance children, parents and jobs, but now also includes balancing grandchildren, retirement, leisure time and the health of the person trying to do it all. The issue doesn’t seem to end or resolve. The Baby Boomer generation (born between 1946 to 1955), has been joined by Generation Jones (born mid-50s to mid-60s) and the Baby Busters Generation (born between mid-60s to 1980). Three generations of people, and a fourth one coming fast, trying to figure out how to do it all and stay healthy. The truth is you can’t. No one can. So, we settle for being stressed out, overweight, over or under medicated, tired, putting our dreams on hold… for just a little while longer. We let promotions, or job transfers, pass us by. We delay our “second acts” of retirement, we postpone that “trip

of a lifetime,” we allow guilt to control our decisions. We allow close relationships to suffer or let prospective relationships go. We try to make everyone happy then fail at doing so and once again feel guilty. What are we doing?!?! Albert Einstein said the definition of insanity is doing something repeatedly and expecting the same result. As Susan Pewter, motivational speaker of the 1990s used to scream, “Stop the Insanity!” I am telling you, it is time to do something different. I often tell folks some variation of this statement, “It is your job, your responsibility, to be sure that a loved one’s needs are taken care of and they are safe. It is not your responsibility to do it by yourself. Sometimes the best care you can give to someone is care that is not provided by you.” Often, immobility is caused by lack of information or lack of time. We don’t know how to find help or we know there is help there but we just don’t have time to research it. There are people who can help you find services: home care, meal preparation, transportation. There are people who can help you find housing and legal help. And there are people who can help you develop a plan that will reduce your stress and guilt. If you would like help in getting connected with someone who can help you, email me at beth@solutionsbybeth.com. I don’t have all the answers, but I know lots of folks, and I am confident one of them can help you find your answer.

Written by: Marci Moore – Coweta County MGEV

Set the morning of April 14th aside for the Spring Plant Sale at the Coweta County Fairgrounds sponsored by the Master Gardener Extension Volunteers (MGEV) of Coweta County! Want to know what all goes into this amazing sale? This is an educational and training opportunity for our Master Gardener volunteers that benefits you, providing exceptional quality plants and value. In December, a planning meeting is held to determine what plants are needed to start your gardens and flower beds based on prior year demand. Decisions are also made regarding how many pots, seeds, bags of potting soil, plant markers, and signage are required and our Spring Sale Coordinators order everything. After the first of the year, an inventory team plans how many plants of each type we can produce and support for the spring sale. Often master gardeners with an abundance of beautiful plants offer a dig at their home and master gardeners convene and dig and take these plants to our greenhouse to begin preparation for either propagation or potting. We have four intake days a year for MGEV’s to share their special plants. Our greenhouse team also plants seeds to start annuals, vegetables, and herbs, as well as coordinates the propagation of woody plants, shrubs, and perennials. This team also uses a software program to maintain a database that provides valuable information about each plant on pot stickers. Another team shows up daily to water the tender plants to ensure their successful growth Finally, our Spring Sale Coordinators, Dave Granroos and Denise Dasher, in addition to ordering all that is needed, determine how many tables we will need and how many master gardeners will be needed for the sale. MGEVs will assist you at the Plant Sale with your selections, adding up your orders and helping you pay so you can be on your way home with your new beautiful plants! The hours and manpower of trained master gardeners is astonishing and it’s all for you! And you may wonder what happens to the funds from the sale. Well those funds support the Coweta County Extension & 4-H program including scholarships, and educational workshops. Now you know what goes into the Spring Plant Sale and you are the only missing part to make it a success so mark your Calendar for April 14 at 8:30 a.m. to be at the Coweta County Fairgrounds at 275 Pine Road bring a wagon or wheeled tote for your convenience. See you there!
