So I walk through the door and the nurse quickly checks my chart. In a few moments I hear these words, “Mrs. Winters, don’t breathe, don’t move … NOW Breathe… DON’T BREATHE, DON’T MOVE. And I’m thinking to myself, “really, how can I move?” It was my yearly mammogram and my breast is smashed in this machine. I’m not going anywhere. I feel like I’ve heard that phrase, “don’t breathe, don’t move,” more than a million times now. Taking care of your health and being your best involves hearing those words many times over a woman’s lifetime. One mammogram a few years back was, at first, like all the others. Twenty minutes of the “don’t move, don’t breathe” routine. After we finished, the nurse looked at me and said, “We will call you if anything seems out of the norm within two or three days.” So I was shopping away in one of my favorite stores and having the best old time when I got a call. "Mrs. Winters?"

"We need you to come back,” the nurse said. “We need to take a few more images." My knees went weak and I held back some tears. I said to myself, "do not freak out. Don’t overreact. It is probably nothing, but who knows, maybe not. It wasn't nothing for many other women.” As I headed to the hospital the second time around I wasn't quite sure what to pray. But I prayed anyway. I prayed I was healthy. I prayed the doctors and nurses had great wisdom and discernment. Then I simply said "Lord whatever I face and whatever the tests show we face it together.” There I was back for more images … don’t breathe, don’t move … Don’t Breathe, Don’t Move …NOW Breathe, DON’T BREATHE, DON’T MOVE. Again, I am thinking, “How could I breathe or move when my breast is flattened like a pancake and the pressure feels like a Mack truck?” The pain can be rather intense so you couldn't breathe or move if you wanted too. I have friends who all go together to get their yearly mammograms. I have never done that, but I think it is a brilliant idea and why not finish off the day with a mani and a pedi! Mammograms aren’t necessarily fun and they may not catch everything, but they are still an important part of breast health. And since October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month, I urge you to get your yearly mammogram and do your monthly breast exams. I have many friends who are breast cancer survivors and many discovered their own cancer. More than ten years ago, one of my dear friends who did just that was not even 40 years old when she had a double mastectomy and is alive and well. As for me, I feel grateful, they did not find anything in the second checkup nor since. We live in amazing times, which includes huge advancements in medical research and specialized equipment. And we are blessed to have many of the top breast cancer centers right here in our community. Now available is 3D imaging for breast exams. These machines require much fewer images and provide greater clarity. So needless to say you will hear “don’t breathe, don’t move” a whole lot less. Getting your mammogram and yearly breast exam might just save your life. Don’t put it off because you're too busy or you don’t think it is necessary, it is. Do it for your family. Do it for yourself.

Prevent Isolation As You Age Did you know that an estimated one in five adults over age 50 is affected by isolation? Research has shown that prolonged isolation can be as bad for you as smoking 15 cigarettes a day—and that the negative health consequences of chronic isolation may be especially harmful for older adults. The good news is that you can proactively plan to combat the problem of social isolation and loneliness both now and for the future. Here are some suggestions: • Nurture and strengthen existing relationships; invite people over for coffee or call them to suggest a trip to a museum or to see a movie. • Schedule a time each day to call or visit someone. • Meet your neighbors. • Don’t let being a non-driver stop you from staying active. Find out about transportation options. • Use social media to stay in touch or write emails or letters. • Stay physically active. • Take a class. • Revisit an old hobby. • Volunteer. • Visit a senior or community center to see what’s going on. • Check out faith-based organizations’ groups and events. Choosing to reside in a continuing care retirement community like Wesley Woods of Newnan is another great strategy for older adults in creating a strong support system to combat isolation and loneliness. The opportunities to meet new friends with shared interests and participate in activities that promote physical, mental and emotional well-being are wide-ranging. For more information on how to find local resources that connect older adults with services and programs of interest in the local community, visit

Piedmont Newnan held a can drive in September to collect cans and cash to purchase can goods to donate to our local food banks here in Newnan. The drive was a huge success thanks to all the hospital staff that chipped in. The drive raised over $1,400 and 3,538 cans were donated to support those in need in our local community.

Half-million dollars pledged toward new breast cancer fund Hogansville resident Faye Hendrix-Ware has pledged $500,000 to Piedmont Newnan Hospital to establish the Faye Hendrix-Ware Breast Cancer Fund. “The $500,000 is just the initial commitment for this breast health center, but we plan to stay with it through completion,” said Hendrix-Ware. The fund will increase access to genetic counseling services and implement a High Risk Breast Clinic for patients in Coweta County and surrounding communities. Piedmont Healthcare Foundation will recognize the donor in the newly constructed Breast Health Center at Piedmont Newnan in the Medical Office Building by naming the center the Faye Hendrix-Ware Breast Health Center. “We have always received great care from Piedmont and hope to help others through this donation,” stated Hendrix-Ware. “We are going to follow Holland Ware’s example when he built the cancer centers at Emory and Auburn.” The High Risk Breast Clinic’s goals will

be to accurately identify risk, provide the highest quality genetic counseling, have a patient-centered and guideline-driven risk reduction plan and long-term minimize cancer incidence, morbidity and mortality. “My family has had trouble with cancer, my dad died from it, and after having a recent scare myself, I knew this was where we wanted to donate,” Hendrix-Ware said. “I look forward to seeing the impact of this partnership with Piedmont, and hope new techniques can be identified to catch and treat cancer early on and save lives.” “We are grateful to Faye and Holland for this transformational gift. Their confidence in the care we provide our patients is evident in this level of support,” said Jason G. Smith, Chief Nursing Officer, Piedmont Newnan Hospital. “Cancer is a complex disease and patients need a wider variety of treatments, medical specialists and support staff than is required for any other health disorder. This gift will improve the patient experience, increase awareness and access to care and improve early detection.”

The greatest gift for your adult child(ren) There is a quote that goes something like this: “Lack of Planning on Your Part Does Not Constitute an Emergency on my Part.” Oh, if only that was true. But time and time again I see how the lack of planning on the parent’s part does create an emergency for their adult children. October is Long Term Care Planning Month. If you are the parent of an adult child, the best gift you can give your adult child today is a plan for your tomorrow. As we age, tomorrow is often something we just don’t want to think about. Now we will plan vacations. And we will plan for a party. But to plan for life after we are no longer able to vacation or party, what fun is that? It’s not. But just like going to the dentist is not fun, (sorry Dr. Yancy) it is something that you need to do. This month, I am asking that if you can’t find the Beth Dow time to plan for you, then you take the time to plan for your children. Our adult children have so much on their plates and believe it or not, they do worry about you. You can help ease that worry by sitting down with them and developing a plan so both of you will be ready when the inevitable happens. So how do you start? You can start with an email, text or phone call. Just tell them that you have been thinking that it would be best if you were both on the same page about what needs to happen if a health emergency occurs, and to discuss your wishes of how and

where you want to live as you age. Ask if they would be up for a conversation. Set a date for the conversation and get ready. (It is very important to set a date for this meeting. Don’t just agree to have it some time in the future. Put a date and time to it.) To the meeting, you need to bring information about any insurance policies, especially Long-Term Care insurance policies. You need to bring information about bank accounts, savings accounts, CDs, loans, etc. Your adult child needs to have a good understanding about where you are financially. I know this will be hard but it is necessary, so there are no surprises later. Next, talk about who your power of attorney should be or is, and be sure that your POA understands exactly what you want medically and financially. Their purpose is to do things the way YOU want them done in the absence of your ability to do them. Then have a big honest talk about where you want to live. Is it feasible for you to stay in your home? Remember, the older you are, the bigger the physical and mental toll moving takes on you. You may not want to postpone your move to when you MUST move. It may be best to make the move now, to lessen the impact it makes later. Remember the better the plan, the better able you and your children are to handle the unexpected. Don’t put it off. Make a plan today, for you and your adult children. n Beth Dow is the owner of Home Helpers and Direct Link of GA & AL.

How Did I Get Here? by Ken Hammock, DCRMC, RMM, This is a blog I wrote several years ago at a time when my wife was facing open-heart surgery, and I was afraid I was losing my best friend. It’s worth repeating. Let me know how I can help you. I finally got a few days off to spend some time being with the family and hopefully catching up on my writing. Though my time off was inopportune. My wife and I are at Emory Hospital in downtown Atlanta. She is upstairs right now, four floors above me, prepping for open-heart surgery. For me, I’m sitting alone in a cafeteria waiting room putting my heart to words and facing deep reflection. So, I’m being forced to redeem all those unused vacation days and sick days to be there every moment for the next 10 days, at least, for the one I love the most. I work a lot, whether at my profession or around the old house. Why do we commit so much to our professions? I may call it being responsible and trying to earn the most for my family; but, you may view your commitment as your calling. Others may see it as being a workaholic, as fulfilling a passion, or maybe an escape from the troubles at home. No matter the opinion there is a reason for why we do what we do. Since I have this time off I've chosen to put my along time to use. I’m a people watcher. I sit and observe people, their mannerism and actions, responses, and how they react or interact with other people and situations. While sitting in the cafeteria at Emory Hospital waiting for the surgeon’s report for my wife, I began to consider others around me. There was a mixture of all sorts of people from all walks of life; some from the Atlanta area, from other parts of the state and even a few from out of state. There were medical staff, patients, families and friends of patients, and one or two looked like homeless people just coming in from the cold. The thought struck me. “How did each one of us in this room get where we are at this particular moment in time?” There sits a nurse who looks like she would rather be somewhere else. Or, maybe something in her lifestyle or situation was troubled. A smock-dressed young man looked like an intern or student rummaging through final notes for a test or a procedure he may be assisting today. One gentleman was asleep in an upright chair. Some rushed by, others walked slowly. At a distance I could see a mother with two small children drying tears from her eyes. While at the same time, a group of teenagers were talking and laughing as they bounced towards the escalator with a fist full of balloons. And here I sit, alone with my own thoughts and watching others -- while a heart surgeon is performing a serious procedure on my wife two floors up. How did we get here? Was it providence? God’s design? Happenstance? Maybe. I think it best to say we are a product of our decisions. We have to live with our choices. What we decide today will affect tomorrow. The decisions I made days, weeks or maybe even years ago put me in this chair today at this hospital writing some insightful nonsense; and all around me there are more than too many patients in the hospital that are here merely because of their years of failure to take care of themselves, improper diet or the lack of physical activity. Others, such as my wife, merely have a failure within the body, not of their own choice. Yet, my wife and I chose this surgeon. And we chose this hospital. And we also chose this day to do it. Their decisions, my decision, your decisions! Let’s bring it full circle. Though I’m talking about my own life experience, think of your career, the value of your life, the experiences, and your Christian walk in the same light. You are where you are today, because of decisions you’ve made in the past. Your current employment or unemployment, your income, where you live, your influence with others – all products of decision you’ve made weeks, months and years ago. Are you satisfied where you are, or is there more? Have you come short of your potential? Are you fulfilling your calling? The most poignant questions is, “What are you doing today that will change your tomorrow?” It’s been said that the most insane thing is to keep doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. Are you in that rut? What are you doing today that will change that? Sometimes we are forced to change. Better though that we choose to change. I choose the latter. What about you? Let me know if I can help.

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

New Community Service Team Announced In the fall of 2015, the Coweta Community Foundation launched its first Community Service Team for local freshmen and sophomores. Members of the team met monthly to study local nonprofits and learn more about how they operate, and at the end of the year, they chose to give a grant to the Community Welcome House. Building on its successful first year, the group added even more members for the 2016-2017 school year, and they awarded their second grant, this time to the Coweta Organization for Riding, Rehabilitation and Learning (CORRAL). This fall, the third group of community-minded high school students, our biggest yet, was selected. Members include Jay Channell, Cade Barker, Sam Huynh, Ashley Stephens, Jessie Himes, Sara Ashley Estes, Bailey Barnett, Michaela Fuller, Elizabeth Alexander, Michelle McGrath, Jena Patel, Gracie Martin, Mary Patten Poulakos, Lili Clark, Samantha Morrison, Mary Nichols Lollis, Amanda Bridges, Lela Daniell, Gracie Bolton, Katelyn McMath, Ashlyn Carney, Sarah Warburton, Emily Bowers, Mia Fisher, Gracie Armour,

Chloe Epstein, Jakob Kerr, Tyiena Stafford and Alani Wight. These students are already busy learning about the world of Coweta nonprofits and will again be awarding a grant before the end of the school year. Membership is determined through an application and interview process among high school students. They attend monthly meetings during which they are introduced to the various nonprofit organizations serving Coweta citizens, and they also participate in two workdays with a nonprofit agency. At the end of the student’s two-year participation, nonprofits may invite the participant to serve as an auxiliary member of the Board of Directors. In addition, a standout team member each year is awarded a $500 scholarship from the Coweta Community Foundation. Leading the program are Foundation board members Cynthia Bennett, director of programs for the Newnan-Coweta Chamber and a retired Coweta County educator; Deidre Bembry, a local State Farm insurance agent; and Michael Nix, local government liaison with the Office of the Governor in Atlanta.

At the inaugural meeting of the 2017-2018 Community Service Team are, front row, from left, Jay Channell, Cade Barker, Sam Huynh, Ashley Stephens and Jessie Himes. Middle row, from left, are, Sara Ashley Estes, Bailey Barnett, Michaela Fuller, Elizabeth Alexander, Michelle McGrath, Jena Patel, Gracie Martin, Mary Patten Poulakos, Lili Clark and Michael Nix.

Lana Jones, Master Gardener and former Coweta County Agriculture and Natural Resources (ANR) program assistant, is returning to her Alabama roots. After many relocations with her husband Keith’s military career, they settled in Newnan in 2006 and she became a Master Gardener in 2007. During their time in the military, Lana said she mostly container gardened and grew fresh herbs on the windowsill, along with purchasing armfuls of flowers (for very little money) at the German markets. Lana was raised in west Alabama where the family’s food came from the garden, meats from hunting or raising animals, and the grocery store was really just a supplement. She remembers shelling butter beans and peas during harvest and as a child her reward for pulling weeds was picking strawberries from the strawberry patch. Lana’s mother planted a rosebush on the family property and Lana has successfully propagated it from cuttings and will again take cuttings with her to her new residence in Alabama. She says the rosebush is an old timey variety, oddly shaped and thorny, but with a beautiful fragrance. Lana’s mother passed away when Lana was young, so this rose is a keepsake of her family heritage. Lana was raised by her Dad, a landscaper, and

Lana’s background is Microbiology and she previously worked in hospitals and pathology labs finding out what bacteria made people or animals sick. Those research and problem solving skills transferred over to the Extension office MGEV/ANR program with soil/water testing, plant/insect ID, and plant disease diagnosis. She enjoys finding solutions to complicated problems and compares it to a puzzle. Lana says it was a delight to meet the wonderful citizens of Coweta County that are so knowledgeable and would come to the Extension office for help for their treasured plants, such as roses and cherry trees. Her current home has an informal landscape that greets you with textural paperbark maples, green hellebores, lavender, pixie loropetalum, boxwoods hiding columbine, and a pyramidal creeping fig by her front door that is just spectacular. Lana says she has picked up many plants in her 11 years in Newnan and like all gardeners made mistakes by putting the right plant in the wrong place. Over time, the trees at her Summergrove home have matured and started choking out her turfgrass; she has compensated by planting some ground cover and states her new place at the Gulf Shore will definitely have turfgrass and she looks forward to researching what will work best in the sandy soil and finding the microclimates for her cherished plants. As she looks to her future, Lana says she misses the “brain work” of the extension office, but she may explore her creative side by writing a book about the ladies of her hometown who influenced her with their nurturing and encouragement. She would like to share those memories with their families and let them know how much the ladies touched her life. And those that know Lana (and her dedication to the MGEV program), know she has paid it forward!

What you are describing is a disease known as fairy ring. It got its name because in medieval times people believed that mushrooms appeared where fairies had danced. Fairy rings appear during periods of wet weather and warm temperatures like we have had over the past several months. You often see them in spring or late summer. There are many types of fungi can cause this phenomenon, but it starts out as an infected spore and then spreads outward in a circular pattern from there. They can range in size from several inches to 50 feet in diameter. Fairy ring can look like a ring of dark green grass, circular area of bare soil where the grass has died or a ring of mushrooms like the one in the photo (Image 1). The diseased area can go dormant during periods of dry weather and can become active again as soon as environmental conditions are favorable. Fungicides are not very effective for this lawn disease, so focus on prevention or other management strategies to control it. For example, aerating your lawn during the growing season can help and keeping your lawn mowed regularly will help cover up the symptoms of the disease. Also, don’t forget soil test! Soil nutrition is very important because the healthier your lawn is, the fewer disease problems you can expect. Fall is the perfect time to test your soil so you can determine whether or not you need to add lime. If you need to apply lime, fall applications are best because it takes a few months for lime to work into the soil and change the pH. By working on improving your soils pH in the fall, your warm season lawn will benefit in the spring.

October Tips, Trends and Trendsetters As a longtime counselor, life coach, as well as working in ministry, my goal is to help others be their best and do what they are passionate about. Each month we cover some of the hot topics from health and wellness, fashion and style, business or tapping into your creative side. This month, we are focusing on “F” words.

wraps, embroidered shirts, darling metallic shoes and so much more for the Fashionista in your life.

Finding your fitness fit

Fall décor Fall is such a fun time to decorate and it is really so easy. You can start as early as September and then add and take away décor as you like. And when I say I love to decorate, I mean I LOVE to decorate. So here are some ideas to help you get started if you haven't already. Mums are a perfect addition to any front porch and they will last through Thanksgiving. Real or faux pumpkins are perfect for any house and you can add your Halloween décor and then just take it down and everything remains perfect for Thanksgiving. You can pull in gourds, corn stalks, real pumpkins and florals in from all the orange, bronze and brown family. I use lots of baskets, glass pumpkins and garlands. If you are looking for a fast and fun DIY project then fabric pumpkins are perfect. Just grab some scissors, thread, fabric, hot glue gun, batting and some faux leaves. It you don’t have spare fabric you can cut up an old velvet shirt or anything else you like. And in no time at all you will have some one of kind pumpkins.

Specialized gyms, clubs, fitness and exercise facilities are popping up all over the country and it is no different in our neck of the woods. You can find just about everything from the YMCA to bootcamps, martial arts, yoga, toning tables, 24-hour sports gyms and fitness centers. Finding the right place and what works for you is so important, especially before you sign a contract or pay your dues. Many years ago when the SONS were little and attending First United Methodist Church preschool, I would drop them off and head to Piedmont Newnan Fitness Center. It was a perfect spot since it was right near their school. So now fast forward and I am back driving the middle SON to high school and once again it is incredibly convenient to just pop in to the fitness center. Piedmont is a classic and tried and true fitness center. You won’t find blaring music videos. But what you will find is a wonderful community of very caring friends. Kind of like a family. They will even ask you where you’ve been if you skip a week or two. As the saying goes, if you don’t use it, you lose it. Staying active is critical to overall long term health. So check out Piedmont or any of the other area fitness centers. Find the one where you feel inspired and empowered working.

Fall Fashions I have a passion for finding great deals when I shop and I love helping others do the same. In the south it is always fun to see fall arrive since we have mentioned last month it will be easy this fall to get your trendy side on whether you hit the department stores, the small boutiques and even non profit thrift shops to find many of these goodies or just shop in your own closet.

This is super easy to do and here are just a few I put together but if you need help then call Charlotte Dubose Lunsford at Create, Grow and Sew. She teaches young and old. She offer ladies night's out and childrens sewing classes as well. We will see dusters, more wraps, shapes and sizes. Plaid is back, but don't flip out and do head to toe. A little bit or just a touch goes a long way. Thrift stores such as New Beginnings, One Roof and Salvation Army can be a mecca for great buys. I hope you enjoy the hunt you will have in these shops. You have to be willing to invest time to find the goods. Here are some hot fall fashions that you may want to pick up or that you may have in your very own closet: Dusters, sweater wraps, bell sleeves, embroidered clothes, scarves and leopard and animal prints are always a great idea and I believe it is a fashion staple. As much as I love them I usually only wear one animal print at time. For example just shoes or just a purse and pair it with strips but that is just me. There are no real rules when it comes to that. I picked up a terrific duster last winter in Downtown Newnan at C.S. Toggery and a wrap at Lee-King Pharmacy and Blue Fern Merchant and they are still perfect for this season's trends. Lucky me. So remember to check out what you have in closet so you will know what pieces you will want to add. Fashions for the girls in your life are especially fabulous this fall and you can head over to Kendra Two or Target’s childrens department. We have been blessed with the three Sons of Thunder and so there are no little princesses in our home. But I do so love seeing all the darling girls clothes. And this season there are ponchos,

Former Christian City CEO Remembered From Special Reports Robert L. Crutchfield, President and CEO of Christian City from 1993 to 2015, passed away September 20, 2017, following complications from ALS. “He was a truly honorable man,” said Carl Ryden, Chaplain and Chief Spiritual Care Officer at Christian City. “Bob came to Christian City as one who felt called of God to serve in ministry, dedicating himself tirelessly to what he deemed a most important work for the kingdom.” Many who live and serve at Christian City know personally of Bob’s warmth and enthusiasm for the fellowship shared as “family” at Christian City. He was known as a man of both humility and integrity – born of a strong conviction of gratitude for what God had given him. “His highest aim for Christian City was the continuance of our ministry commitment and the spiritual well-being of our resident community,” Ryden said. In 2015, Crutchfield informed Christian City’s Board of

Trustees, financial supporters, friends and residents of his ALS diagnosis, announcing that he would be retiring due to his declining health, and the search was underway for a new CEO to take over leadership of Christian City. As he reflected on the transition ahead, Crutchfield said, “Just as the Lord has done for more than 50 years, since the start of the Christian City Home for Children in 1965, I rest assured that He will continue His faithful service to Christian City into the future. He works through loving people like you who have supported us through your prayers, time, talent and financial support over the years. God bless you for all that you have done and will continue to do. I deeply regret that I will not personally have more time to serve along with you.” Only three CEOs have served Christian City during the organization’s 52-year history. Crutchfield succeeded the non-profit’s first CEO, Bob Puckett. Upon Crutchfield’s retirement in December 2015, Len Romano became President and CEO of Christian City after a 34-year career with YMCA.

Fabulous Fall Fudge

If you’re like me, you may be planning a trip to the mountains sometime this fall. I’ll be visiting the North Georgia Mountains as usual, and while I’m there, you can bet I’ll be looking to enjoy some of the unique flavors of the season. I always enjoy finding a local produce farm brimming with apples and treats like pumpkin butter, peach bread, and fresh jams and jellies. And if the locals have a fudge shop, I’m in heaven. When I researched fudge history, I wasn’t surprised to find a mention of Mackinac Island, Michigan. My husband and I visited the island this summer, and though I had been told that fudge shops there were plentiful, I had no idea that the streets of this legendary town would be lined with them! You could hardly walk ten feet without seeing a sign for a fudge shop or, even better, smelling the sweet fragrance wafting through the air as huge mounds of fudge were being shaped across slabs of marble. According to, “American confectioners introduced modern fudge to resort-area vacationers in the 1880s. Mackinac Island is particularly known for this confection.” Later, Ivy League coeds made fudge directly in the pan rather than using any special equipment. Some historians believe that the

with Angela

word “fudge” itself is simply a verb (or possibly expletive!) referring to botched caramels. These caramels, then, were “fudged” by those making them. Not all fudge is created equal. I’m partial to the rich, velvety-smooth fudge that doesn’t have a hint of a granulated sugar taste. The creamier the fudge, the better I like it. And when the fudge-making mood hits, my favorite fudge recipe is this one. Penuche (pronounced “puh-NOOchee”) is a fudge made with brown sugar, butter, cream or milk, and nuts. This caramel-flavored fudge is so rich that one piece will probably satisfy your sugar cravings for an entire day. Try it and let me know if you agree!

The temperatures are cooler, it is easier to see the entire property with the leaves falling and there are less bugs and snakes. The process of buying and selling land is completely different than a residential transaction. The list price for land and acreage is typically calculated at a price per acre. The value for the land is determined by factors such as location, topography, water features, quality of soil, timber value, road frontage, internal road systems, structures and/or improvements, uses for the land, comparable sales, etc. It is very important to have a quality survey of the property when selling or buying land. You need to know exactly what you are selling or buying. When a property’s value is calculated on a per acre basis, a small difference in acreage can make a huge impact on a sales price. If a survey is not provided, you can ask the seller to provide one or have someone complete a survey for you. Newnan and Coweta County have a great group of local surveyors. I would not recommend buying or selling a property without a survey as there can be disputes about boundaries and encroachments from adjacent properties. Sellers often will cut the timber off a property before selling it to cash in on the value of the timber. I would not recommend this as cutting the timber leaves the land looking barren and rough. You want to dress up acreage, like you would a house or car before selling it. This can be as simple as bushogging a field or as complicated as adding a pond to make the property more desirable. Thinning is a good idea to help a land tract show better. Thinning is the calculated removal of certain trees with a specific objective in mind (gfc.state. This process is beneficial to the overall health of trees on the property also. For example, thinning an area of dead or diseased trees will allow a property to show better. The Georgia Forestry Commission is a great resource for questions about timber. If you plan to build a home or structure on some land, I would highly recommend having a soil or “perc test” completed during a due diligence period. Percolation tests measure the water absorption rate of soil. This will help to determine if you can put a septic tank and drain field on the property. The Coweta County Health Department can provide perc tests, as well as local soil scientists. It is not a bad idea to have a soil test, along with a topographic report, completed before you list a property so the prospective buyers know where they can build a home. A topographic report is a detailed map of the surface features of the land. This includes mountains, hills, creeks, valleys, etc. on a particular property. I hope you are able to enjoy being outside this fall. Walking and showing land is one of my favorite parts of my job!

Fifty-seven years of motorcycling by Joe Williams

map (no GPS then) and ride hundreds of miles, sometimes a couple of thousand, ending up wherever I ended up. The wind was in my face, my nostrils were filled with the passing smells of the countryside (along with some gas fumes) and I could feel the vibration and sounds of a tuned engine. And I think it gave me some relief from the hard responsibilities of owning a business. I loved it!

Franklin road animal CliniC

And I still do! I’m older now and my first priority is safety on the road. For me, this means having good tires and brakes, working lights and horn, and a generally good running machine. I don’t ride at night, and I wear a conspicuous jacket and helmet of Hi-Viz yellow made from quality materials. Let the other drivers see me! I am way more careful now and go a little slower, staying away from the traffic of congested areas. Taking my time and enjoying the experience is what it’s all about for me.

For as long as I can remember, I liked all things with a motor and wheels. Things that would propel me from here to there, making a noise and blowing some smoke. “Here to there” might be across the yard or across the country, but each one has been an adventure of some type or another. Circa 1961 would find me pouring over the Sears Roebuck catalogue on a page that advertised the companies scooters and motorcycles. I literally wore the print off that page from handling it hundreds of times. I decided on the Allstate 125 model, bright red, for $285. This “Decision” had nothing to do with the fact that I had no money, but my desire was stronger than my bank account. (And still is to this day!) Anyway, as I had an income of about $11.00 a week from my paper route, I could pay the $18 a month. I had my “Ride! I think my next two-wheel vehicle was the one I brought home with me when Nadine and I had been married only 6 months. Not having a garage (and not wanting it stolen), I rode it up the steps and into the kitchen. For some reason, I thought she might like it, too, and couldn’t understand her lack of interest. Who would know? Over the years I have owned six or seven “real” motorcycles that were capable of taking me on “The Adventure”. In my younger days, I would leave without a road

We can all do the things we enjoy subject to our health and finances – mostly our health. I intend to ride for a few more years, and do so safely. There will be a time when my judgment (and my wife and my doctor) tells me it’s time to call it quits, but that time has not yet come. We senior citizens should find something we enjoy and do it until we can’t. Then, and only then, we will find something else to enjoy appropriate to our capabilities. So, if you see a man with white hair and a wrinkled face, riding a red BMW motorcycle, give me plenty of room. I’ll be going on my “Big Adventure”, whether across town or across country, and I’ll have a big smile on my face. And by the way, I can still ride a least 300 miles a day! But the following day I’ll be in bed with a fan blowing on me – recuperating until the next big adventure! PS: I actually wrote this article as an act of civil disobedience as a result of some suggestions at my last doctor’s appointment. But don’t tell anybody!

Invest in some nice fluffy towels to fold and stack on the side of the tub, or top of the vanity, and to layer over the towel racks & rings. No one wants to see tired stringy bath linens hanging around when they are looking at houses to purchase. Thing model home ready!

5 Home Staging Ideas Under $50 It goes without saying that once you decide to sell your home, work needs to begin. Most sellers worry about the junky garage and overflowing closets and that’s not a bad way to start, however, there are a few investments one can make to help update a house that don’t have to break the bank.

New Bed Linens – let’s face it, kids bed linens get washed A LOT! They spill things and have accidents and teenagers…well they just “smell”. Girls and boys alike, if they are active, they have a less than pleasant odor. Updating bed linens is a quick and easy way to replace tired worn out comforters and remove any odors your precious ones may create.


Invest in a new Welcome mat for the front door. A tired worn out mat is not a good way to welcome

your new buyer into the house. My advice is to avoid the seasonal décor mats and go simple on this purchase. You are probably going to move off and forget it, anyway so don’t put a HUGE investment in this purchase. Just make it new and fresh. 5.

Don’t forget the mailbox. A can of paint and some new flowers around the mailbox can go a long way in planting a good seed (no pun intended) in a buyers mind. It will make the statement that this is a special place and they will be excited to pull into the driveway if the first thing they see when they pull up is fresh and beautiful.

Helpful tips on buying Flood Insurance The 2017 Atlantic hurricane season lasts until Nov. 30, and it has become one of the most active seasons on record, with 13 tropical storms and major hurricanes named so far. Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Jose and Maria have brought devastation to the United States and Caribbean with high winds, heavy rains and massive flooding, and meteorologists predict the season is far from over. Coweta County isn’t located on the coast, but the wind and rainfall from hurricanes can be far-reaching, as recently demonstrated by Hurricane Irma. What would you do if your home became flooded during a storm? Do you have proper insurance to cover the damage? The answer for most people is: no. Edward Morris of Morris & Spradlin Insurance Group at 184-A Jefferson Parkway in Newnan has been answering lots of flood-related questions from customers since Hurricane Harvey. Morris, a licensed insurance agent, shares his expertise on flood insurance with The Shopper: “If you are asking yourself the question, will my homeowners



LaTina Emerson

insurance provide coverage for my home during the next 1,000-year flood as was recently experienced in Houston, the answer is probably no. Most basic homeowner policies don’t protect against flood damage even though floods cause more property damage in the United States than any other type of natural disaster.  It doesn’t take a foot of water to ruin property. Only an inch of water can lead to thousands of dollars’ worth of damage to your home.” “To fully protect your home, you would need to obtain a Flood Insurance policy through the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), which is administered by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). You can purchase flood insurance as long as your community participates in the NFIP – and most communities do.” “Your local insurance agent can assist you in obtaining coverage, but

don’t wait until the flood water is at your door steps before calling your agent, as most flood policies require a 30-day waiting period before they go into effect. If you don’t live in a flood plain, you can obtain flood insurance coverage for less than $300 per year, with higher premiums for homes located in a flood plain.”   The following link will show if your home and area are located in a flood zone. Just enter your address: http:// You can also visit for useful information regarding what Flood Insurance will cover. Once on their home page, click the Search button and type in “Media Library Fact Sheet What Is Covered.” Morris & Spradlin Insurance Group can be reached at 770-683-6793 or FEMA reports that your NFIP policy will cover the following flood damage for one-to-four family residential buildings and single-family dwelling units in a condominium building: • Electrical and plumbing systems • Furnaces, water heaters, heat pumps and sump pumps • Refrigerators, cooking stoves and built-in appliances, such as dish-

washers • Permanently installed carpeting over an unfinished floor • Permanently installed paneling, wallboard, bookcases and cabinets • Window blinds • Foundation walls, anchorage systems and staircases attached to the building • Detached garage, used for limited storage or parking • Cisterns and water in them • Fuel tanks (and fuel in them), solar energy equipment, well water tanks and pumps • Personal belongings, such as clothing, furniture and electronic equipment • Curtains • Portable and window air conditioners • Portable microwaves and dishwashers • Carpet not included in building coverage (carpet installed over wood floors) • Clothes washers and dryers • Certain valuable items, such as original art work and furs (up to $2,500) • Food freezers and food in them (not refrigerators)

World Pancreatic Cancer Day (WPCD) is Nov. 16 It starts with someone … World Pancreatic Cancer Day (WPCD) is Nov. 16. Communities around the world will unite to raise global awareness of pancreatic cancer on this special day. On WPCD, we are asking for help to raise awareness about pancreatic cancer, one of the world’s deadliest cancers. We need more attention, awareness and progress to help patients fight and survive this disease. Pancreatic cancer is the 3rd leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the U.S. This year an estimated 53,670 people in the U.S. will be diagnosed with 74% dying within the first year of diagnosis. The 5-year survival rate is only 9%. With the advancements in cancer treatment, this is not acceptable. Currently, there is no screening test or early detection method for pancreatic cancer. Some are in development – another sign of the progress happening in the field that needs greater attention and funding support. Early diagnosis is vital, so listen to your body and don’t ignore the signs. If you have symptoms such as abdominal bloating, pain, weight loss, jaundice, diabetes or digestive problems, speak to your healthcare provider and demand further screening. Risk factors for pancreatic cancer include family history of pancreatic cancer, family history of other cancers,

diabetes, pancreatitis (chronic and hereditary), smoking, obesity, race (ethnicity), age and diet. Every day, more than 1,000 people worldwide will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, and an estimated 985 will die each day from the disease. Help us spread the word on WPCD by wearing purple, posting to social media to help education your family and friends about pancreatic cancer. Also join us for PurpleStride Atlanta on Nov. 11. PurpleStride is the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network’s signature fundraiser. It is a friendly 5K walk/run to bring the needed awareness and necessary funding to reach our mission of doubling survival by 2020. Go to to register. It starts with someone … It could be a mother, a son, a friend.

For me, it was my daddy and aunt. So I #WageHope and #DemandBetter on #WPCD and everyday. We need YOUR help in changing the story of this deadly disease that is projected to be the 2nd leading cause of cancer-related deaths by 2020. Yours in the fight, Nancy Mader Advocay Chair, Atlanta Affiliate Pancreatic Cancer Action Network
