Northgate High School senior Ashley Ann Stephens is the recipient of the 2018 Newnan-Coweta Historical Society Scholarship The presentation was made by Gary Welden of the NCHS Scholarship Committee during Northgate’s Honors Night held Tuesday, May 1 at the Donald Nixon Centre. For 2018 NCHS 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 application was open to all local students, not just those in public schools. It 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. Stephens plans to attend Mercer University with a major in History on the Pre-Law track and a minor in Music.

Encouraging Words

Publisher’s PAGE



For Students

So I asked the Youngest SON of Thunder if he wanted to go downtown and help me photograph the demonstration.

Education is the key to unlock the golden door to freedom. If you are not willing to learn, no one can help you. If you are determined to learn, NO ONE CAN STOP YOU!

“You think it will be safe,” he asked. I paused, thought about it, and then said, “It’s probably the safest place in America right now.” “Yeah, but aren’t they like Nazis or something,” he said, adding, “aren’t you worried about them starting a riot?”


I told him it wasn’t the neo-Nazi group I was worried about, but rather the so-called “counter-protestors.” I’ve covered my share of protests, KKK marches, white power, black power, fill in the blank protests/rallies over the years. The results have always been the same. It is not the group holding the protest that starts the trouble, it’s those holding the “peaceful” counter-protest where problems begin. A few observations from the April 21 National Socialist Movement rally at Greenville St. Park and the counterprotest. And a comment or two. Who’s the problem?: Of the 10 or so arrests, all were counter demonstrators. Only a couple of those gave their hometown as Newnan. News reports said they were found with fireworks, wasp sprayers with a 25-foot range and smoke bombs. Typical picnic supplies.

How many II? If there are more media present than neo-Nazis at a neo-Nazi rally, you’re doing it wrong. Don’t be rude: If you are going to hold a rally for the sole purpose of spewing your propaganda, at least have the courtesy to show up on time. The neo-Nazis reserved the park for two hours. They were 45 minutes late. There were about 700 public safety employees and hundreds of counter-protesters and the curious waiting on you. You lose a lot of credibility in your message if you can’t just be on time. Plus it’s rude. Don’t need you: I got really tired hearing over and over, “Power to the people. Newnan strong.” The leaders obviously weren’t from Newnan, many said so to the television news cameras. Plus you could tell by their accent. Stay home. Get your own: Notice how evil always tries to confiscate something good? Those counter-protesters were all over #newnanstrong. Some community leaders in Newnan came up with that slogan, heck they even sold tshirts. More importantly, that was the theme of an incredible community rally the night before. #newnanstrong is for us, get your own term. The definition of irony: Dozens of public safety personnel watched as counter-demonstrators marched through downtown chanting, “Cops and the Klan go hand in hand.” Basically, protesters protected by the very ones they are protesting against. Bless their little hearts. Wait, what:? Going through a security checkpoint? 9mm strapped to your side? No problem. But no knives of any kind, no bottled water, no pens, no pencils. #newnanstrong: We are an awesome community. The way people from all walks of life, religious or atheist, liberal or conservative, came together united against hate was a sight to behold. Thank you: To the hundreds of public safety personnel who came down with the sole purpose of protecting life and property, thank you. Professional, polite, courteous, firm, with a “don’t test me” air tied to a “you get one shot” theme. Youngest SON summed it up best: “I can’t believe how polite the cops are … but there’s no way I would ever want to mess with those guys.”

Try mall walking, browsing from shop to shop on your local streets or even making a few extra laps around your favorite grocery or big box store. 3. Increased creativity. Sometimes, shopping can an effective means of getting your creative juices flowing. Try “window shopping” to formulate a plan for putting together the perfect outfit or furnishing your dream bedroom.

When you or a loved one are experiencing diminished independence, it is important to know what care is available. Older adults and caregivers are often surprised to learn how many options for care are not covered by insurance. Having this information and planning for the future helps to avoid unnecessary stress when the time comes.



The Leapfrog Group, a Washington D.C-based organization aiming to improve health care quality and safety for consumers and purchasers, today released the new Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grades. The Safety Grade assigns letter grades of A, B, C, D and F to hospitals nationwide based on their performance in preventing medical errors, infections and other harms among patients in care. Piedmont Newnan Hospital was one of 750 hospitals nationwide, and one of only 15 of the 74 graded hospitals in Georgia, to receive an “A” for its efforts in protecting patients from harm and meeting the highest safety standards

Caregiver of the Month: Tracie Waits


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.

Tracie Waits, May’s Exceptional Caregiver of the Month, explains why she loves being a Caregiver ... “I am a caregiver because I have always cared about the elderly. I love being around them and helping make their day to day life easier.”

Distant memories can play an important role for our seniors and you I went fishing today and caught two fish! I haven’t been fishing in years. And while catching fish was very unexpected, something even better happened unexpectedly. I caught a distant memory. My mind went straight back to my granddaddy. He is the one that taught me how to fish. Granddaddy always referred to it as “going to feed some fish.” It had been years since I had thought about that, but standing beside the lake, casting my reel, memories of my Beth Dow granddaddy and me fishing came flooding back. He wouldn’t bait my hook for me. He made me do it. He wouldn’t take the fish off the hook, either. He showed me how to do it all. It was all part of fishing. No extra treatment for being a girl. Now those two skills made me very popular in biology class when it was time to dissect a frog. While most of the girls and some of the boys thought it was all too gross, I dove right in. Much of what my granddaddy taught me has made me better prepared to be the adult I am today. For many of our elders, remembering what they had for breakfast or what they did yesterday, leaves them blank. But if you can encourage those distance memories from 50 to 60 years ago – those memories and getting to revisit them – can bring a

sense of comfort and joy. Your loved one may not be physically able to fish, but if he or she used to fish in their early years, you can help bring that memory back. Take them outside. The side of a lake would be nice but not necessary. Just the warmth of the sun and a reel in their hand is enough to spark a memory. Let them cast the line, and reel it back in. Even if they are not able to speak, their expression will tell you if they have pulled up a memory. If they can communicate, ask them where they fished, who taught them to fish, and who fished with them. Even if you have heard the story 100 times, act as though it is the first time you have heard it. Show them that for this moment in time, they have your full focus. Maybe your loved one was a good cook or just liked to cook. Bake some chocolate chip cookies. The aroma itself can bring up an old memory. Then ask your loved one if they would like to help you make some. Place a bowl in their lap with a spoon and let them stir. As they stir, talk to them about cooking. Ask who taught them to cook, or ask about their favorite dish to cook. If they were known for their bad cooking or if you know they had a hard time learning to cook, burn some bread in the toaster. The smell of burnt toast can bring back memories of laughter over burnt meals. Your loved ones have memories in there. Help to get them out. Not only will you bring back their memories, you may just make a connection with them, and thus create some new memories of your own.

May Trends & Trendsetters

More fashion scoops Whether you call it teal, turquoise or peacock, this color is all the rage in clothing and home decor. I have always loved these colors.

Each month we cover some of the hot trends from health and wellness, fashion and style, business or even tapping into your creative side. (Corby is known to many as a Power Shopper, the Little Black Dress and a life stylist. She’s crazy about shoes, clothes, accessories, and of course leopard prints. She loves writing, speaking, ministering, life coaching and being with friends, Winters and the SONS of Thunder.)

Outdoor parties are upon us Warmer weather means more lawn parties, pool parties and barbeques. Among the tips I want to share are taking a shawl since weather in the South can be unpredictable. A great pair of sunglasses are always a hit too. I also seriously recommend wearing wedges and not high heels to outdoor lawn parties. That is unless you want to walk around on your tiptoes the entire time. Trust me, that is exhausting. “Rules” can be broken. You can wear white before Memorial Day, I just suggest holding off on the white shoes and white linen. And yes, you can wear suede in the summer. I know that makes some squeamish, but I have the most beautiful summer suede sandals and can’t wait to wear them.

And they are popping up everywhere from chairs, sofas, pillows to clothing to purses. The actual peacock prints, and the peacock feather designs on clothing are fabulous right now. So if you are looking to add a pop of color to your home or your wardrobe you can certainly find it right now. Maxie is a fancy name for long dresses In the Sixties, long fun flowing dresses were so popular. They seem to come and go but they are popular again this season. Maxi Dresses can actually be cool to wear to those summer lawn parties. Dressy shorts for fancy occasions or special events are popular and it takes women of confidence to wear them. You can find some at Second Glance Consignments. They are snappy, fun and sexy.

Full flowing tops are still popular as ever and are very forgiving if you have not shed those few extra Winter pounds. Loose and effortless tops paired with slender pants and heels can make woman feel and look fantastic.

Hats are a perfect accessory for women and gentlemen alike whether you are at the pool or at a party. Hats are perfect protect for your face from the sun and good for you gentlemen with a little less hair on top (sorry). Some of the greatest hats were on display on May 5 at the Hats and Hooves party, benefitting Community in Schools.

Scarves are a timeless trend and if anyone tries to tell you the are out well they are simply out of the loop. Scarves can be tied to your purse, draped around your neck or wrapped over your hair like Jackie O. This is an elegant look but around this side of the perimeter it may require some moxie to pull it off. Scarves can change up an outfit in seconds. (If you can handle all the drama which goes on Bravo's Southern Charm you can see Kathryn Calhoun Dennis wearing scarves.)

Inspirational, Christian and faith-based gifts If you are looking for a gift to celebrate your faith or inspirational gifts for others we have you covered. These are timeless trends. We are fortunate to have some wonderful shops and artists that offer a variety of impirational merchandise right in our area. So if you are looking for gifts for Mother’s Day, a christening or graduation, these are great ideas. Lee-King and Lee-Goodrum have beautiful crosses, books and jewelry. And at Dogwood Galleries in Tyrone and Fine Lines Art and Framing in Newnan you can find artist Sherry Cook’s unique angels. ❦ May 16, 2018 ❦ The SHOPPER ❦ Page 13

Back then we certainly were not discussing prescription drug abuse. But now, tragically, all over the country opioid addiction is on the rise. Coweta County is taking this issue very seriously and is facing it head on. An opioid coalition was created to make a positive impact on Coweta County, The Coweta Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition, or (C- SAP), is a grassroots and community-driven group with a broad spectrum of community leaders to address prescription substance abuse, prevention and protection in our community.

Special Gifts for the Special Graduates!

The opioid coalition is using data-based strategies to work together to reduce access and the misuse of opioids to protect individuals. The coalition and many in the community know we need intervention and prevention strategies in place. So the various subcommittees are focused to help bring about the best level of communication to our community, addressing the dangers associated with opioids and provide educational awareness. There is so much shame, guilt, denial and embarrassment associated with addiction and I am honored to be a part of the Opioid Coalition to help address the stigma of addiction and to help those in crisis to get the aid and support they need and to fight this dangerous issue.

Cheese Wafers fit for a royal wedding So I’m sure you’ve heard that a royal wedding is coming up this month. I wouldn’t miss it. I got up early to turn on the telly for the weddings of Lady Diana Spencer to the Prince of Wales and Lady Sarah Ferguson to Prince Andrew. Fast-forward a few years, and I was again up before dawn to watch Prince William’s wedding to Kate Middleton, so naturally I plan to watch Prince Harry’s wedding to Ms. Meghan Markle on May 19. I had friends over for a breakfast celebration the morning of Prince William’s wedding, and I’ll be having a viewing party again in honor of Prince Harry’s. I’ve been preparing for it for years. Shortly after William and Kate’s wedding, I came across some lovely Union Jack cupcake papers, and I tucked them away in my pantry for Prince Harry’s wedding. It will be fun to view another royal wedding, and I’ll no doubt be glued to my TV and laptop all weekend. Weddings have sure changed since Harry’s mother got married. (If you happen to be a Princess Diana fan, check out the book “A Dress for Diana” by David Emanuel and Elizabeth Emanuel. It goes into glorious detail about one of the world’s most iconic wedding gowns, one that many of us locals had the pleasure of seeing when it was on display in Atlanta a few years ago.) Most weddings don’t quite measure up to Charles and Diana’s 1981 royal wedding, though. A friend of mine recently reminded me that a simple Southern church wedding in the eighties often had a light menu of cake, pimiento cheese sandwiches, mints, and that staple of Southern gatherings, cheese straws. Is there a Southern celebration at which a cheese straw wouldn’t be welcome? From weddings to birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, who wouldn’t be happy to eat a cheese straw? But I’ve never been handy at making the pretty cheese straw “ribbons” that some bakers produce. Instead, I found a recipe for these Cheese Wafers in the cookbook “Kitchen Delights” published by the Historic Waco Foundation in Texas. I’ve seen similar recipes, but only this one has a magic ingredient you might not have come across in a cheese straw before— Rice Krispies. These Cheese Wafers might not be on the menu come May 19, but I promise you, Prince Harry and Ms. Markle would be lucky indeed if they were.

Why Do They Say, “No” In sales, it’s the one word that we don’t want to hear, but so often do. Sometimes it feels like we hear the word “no” more than we hear “yes.” Recently, I sent an email survey to a number of my customers and several of my colleagues with a simple question. “Why do your customers say, No?” The list of reasons was quite lengthy and I’d gladly share the results, if you would like. However, it was interesting to see how the responses were very similar in context regardless of whether it was from a retail or service business, or whether the sales model was structured for business-to-business or business-to-consumer. The one true discovery from all the answer reveal that most of the “no” answers were mere excuses. Saying “No” actually was not the final answer, rather a revelation of an unanswered objection. Or, worse the true reason may be answers to questions that were never asked. If there are unanswered questions, the prospect often has no alternative but refuse. A more complete and thorough needs analysis might have disqualified the prospect and deemed the attempt as a waste of effort. I firmly believe most proposals should never have gotten to the estimate, quote, or pitch stage. Equally, if we are to graduate into a seasoned sales representative then we should see the opportunities that might be hiding in a rejection. First, is the rejection an opportunity to grow our knowledge and abilities. Second, we can determine if the rejection is absolute or if hope remains. Finally, can we discover something about our own perception of the relationship with the customer? Are we seeing everything through the eyes of the customer? Or through our own filters? Do we have their full trust, or does the relationship need deepening? Are we missing the customer’s actual view point, and are we presumptuous? When the word “no” becomes a factor in your transaction, how do you respond? Let me know if I can help.

The Orchard Hills Business Park project is being managed by the Meadows Development Corporation. According to the Orchard Hills Business Park website, they have developed over 2,000 acres of major office, industrial and business park properties. The Orchard Hills development will take place on 281 acres. The site plan can be accessed on their website ( The plan includes a one million square square foot building, 478,000 sq. ft. building, a 425,000 sq. ft. and several other buildings including medical and office buildings, retail, ponds and a “neighborhood” grocery store. Andre Howard and John T Bourbonnais are partners of the Meadows Development corporation and Jason Morganroth is listed as an investor on the Orchard Hill Business Park Website. Andre and John both reside in Atlanta. Occupying that largest building will be APL Logistics. Both the Orchard Hills Business Park and APL Logistics plans were submitted to Coweta County Planning and Zoning Department for review on 5/10/2017. APL Logistics identifies itself as an “end-to-end Worldwide Supply Chain Management Company. There are several other large industrial and commercial plans under review right now. In fact, Kawasaki has already started construction on their expansions, buildings 100, 200 and 300 at 60 N. Amlajack Blvd, in Newnan. Covered RV Storage of Georgia, LLC submitted a plan on last fall to Coweta County for a 154,925 sq. ft. building near the business park at Orchard Hills on Hwy 16. Danko Concrete Construction submitted a plan for review on 1/16/2018, for an 11,000 sq. ft. building, on Coweta Industrial Parkway, which is part of the area that the organization Pattillo developed, by the Sharpsburg-McCollum exit off I-85. Not far away, there is a project titled “Northpointe Business Center” submitted on 8/24/17 on Raymond Hill Rd that would occupy 7,200 sq. ft. of building. With much of the real estate focus on housing, it is important we do not forget the tremendous impact that industrial real estate has on the county tax base and job opportunities. Newnan and Coweta County is a growing area for industrial occupants. The Coweta County Planning and Zoning Department is an excellent resource for more information on these projects.

The Master Gardener

Newnanite Dave Granroos named Coweta County Extension Volunteer of the Year By Marci Moore, Coweta MGEV Volunteer

You will not believe this man! Meet Coweta County Extension Volunteer of the Year for 2017, Dave Granroos. Introduced to the Master Gardener UGA Extension Volunteer Program (MGEV) by friends Marion Seals and Don Morris, he attended the 2008 Coweta MGEV class. Since then Dave volunteers without hesitation each time there is a need. He has volunteered over 2000 hours! There are many outstanding Master Gardener volunteers but since passing his final exam, Dave has assisted with the Nature Trail, negotiated larger purchases for the program, secured sponsors for in kind as well as monetary support. He has worked the Coweta UGA Master Gardener help desk, participated on the greenhouse watering team and the fall plant sale. For six years he has co-chaired the huge spring plant sale with Denise Dasher and this year his leadership led to a sellout sale of 5,300 plants before noon! His leadership, coordination of volunteers, ordering tables, seeds and pots and scheduling the use of the fairgrounds, attention to detail with spreadsheets and exceptional record keeping are hard to match and he is UNBELIEVABLE. Not only is Dave an amazing and knowledgeable Master Gardener, he is an exceptional master of a very large mobile smoker. His bar-b-que is known county-wide and people eagerly await an invitation. The aroma and flavor support Dave’s philosophy that follows the old adage “you first eat with your eyes.” Dave tickles the taste buds of all his eager and fortunate guests when he entertains his Sunday school classmates, fellow master gardeners, friends, relatives and Nature Trail Festival participants.

Dave, like any avid master gardener, adds plants leading Nancy to institute an “in the ground before nightfall” policy. While visiting, I was surprised that although early in the season, there were still some beautiful flowers blooming and each time I thought I had seen everything I was drawn to another area of something special in Dave’s landscape. He has beautiful perennials and shrubs including snowballs, yaupons, cherry laurel, quince, forsythia and holly. I was intrigued with the many ground cover plants he has incorporated into his garden to beautify while also reducing weeds. The many crape myrtles are beautiful when blooming, as is the lovely Grancy Greybeard tree. The lush Bermuda lawn is like stepping on a thick soft carpet. Their many garden areas offer the perfect places to escape with a book, snooze in a lawn chair, watch the many birds that gather at the feeders, watch the deer and turkey graze, and even see an occasional horse from a nearby horse farm trotting up the cleared pipeline area. And, when you think Dave has a full calendar and no time for anything else, he manages a 65 acre farm for his daughter and son-in-law. Dave loves that tractor!

Dave is also a great photographer and recently won first prize at the Coweta County Fair for his unique eclipse photo taken on a visit to Claude and Cheryl Vickers river house in Hayesville, N.C.

Nancy and Dave are enjoying retirement traveling when they can. They have recently been to Greece & Turkey, the Greek islands, Spain & Portugal, England, and a Rhine River cruise that included visits to Amsterdam and the Keukenhof gardens. They have cruised the Mediterranean and traveled Canada/Banff. In the States, they have traveled all over the West, Midwest, and New England. They have a trip to Utah, Colorado and Nevada planned for this year. Now you understand why Dave was selected as Coweta County Master Gardener Extension Volunteer of the year. He is exceptional and a hard one to follow or keep up with. Why Do They Say, “No”

Veggie Patch

PRODUCE MARKET Above and to the right is a photo of Dave at the Spring Plant showing his humorous side modeling Judy Lippmann’s hat. Dave and wife, Nancy, picutred above, are originally from Springfield, Massachusetts and came here attending a fourth of July visit in 1976. They enjoyed Newnan so much that Dave’s employer offered him a 1-year contract to work in Georgia and on January 1, 1977 they began their lives here as Newnanites raising their daughter and son (now married and have blessed them with five very active grandchildren). The Granroos’ have attended the same Sunday school class since they joined over 40 years ago and once a year host a Sunday school class picnic in their beautiful yard with Dave’s delectable bar-b-que. Dave and Nancy have been married almost 53 years and 40 years ago built a beautiful home here in Newnan and began building their one acre “park.” Dave came from a family with a strong 4-H and horticulture background and has gardened since childhood. Their property backs up to the Transcontinental Gas Pipeline and, although it does have restrictions on what they may do on their property, it affords them the privacy and serenity they wanted. In 1996 Dave had a landscape designer develop plans for his yard based on their wants and hopes for the future. Each year

Q. I saw a tree that has a strange looking A.

orange blob on it. What is it?

It sounds like you saw a cedar tree infected with cedar-apple rust, a fungal disease. Those bright orange blobs start out as brown galls (sometimes called cedar-apples) and aren’t usually noticeable unless you are specifically looking for them. They don’t become obvious until warm, spring rains moisten the gall and they explode with what looks like orange worms coming out of the gall. This is when billions of spores are released and can infect apple trees.

This is a very interesting disease because it must have two different types of hosts in order to complete its life cycle. Half of its life cycle happens on a juniper specie like red cedar or ornamental junipers and half of its life cycle happens on rosaceous plants like apple, crabapple and hawthorne.

All Steel Structures Granny Smith. A few highly susceptible, on the other hand, include Jonathan, Golden Delicious, and Rome.

Cedar-apple rust can be a problem for anyone growing apples. In late spring, apple trees that are infected with the disease will have yellow or orange lesions on the upper side of the leaves. Infections can cause small, deformed apples and can cause early fruit drop. More serious infections can kill the tree. Fungicides can be applied to apple trees prior to infection to control the disease, but the best method of control is to prevent it by planting resistant varieties. These include Arkansas Black, Mollies Delicious, and

Although apple trees can be infected more than a mile away from the host plant, most infections occur from cedars that are located within a few hundred feet of the apple tree. If wild or abandoned cedars or crabapples are present, then you can remove the entire plant. If you only have one or two small cedars that are small and easily accessible, then you can remove existing galls by pruning. For more information on cedar-apple rust or resistant apple tree varieties, call 770-254-2620 and ask for the publications, “ Home Garden Apples ” and “Cedar-Apple Rust”.
