Encouraging Words …



You can never really know a community until you’ve spent time with it. Even long vacations don’t give you a real sense of a place. You have to invest, and that takes time. I’ve long said that you can tell a lot about a community by how it treats the less fortunate, its weaker members. In every place I’ve lived, which includes six states and D.C., there were always groups that stood out in that regard. But I have yet to live in a community where helping those in need, whether with food, housing, special education, clothes and backpacks for kids, afterschool programs, animal therapy or a host of other needs, was the norm rather than the exception. Until we moved to Newnan and Coweta County.

And all that is my round-about way of saying the Kiwanis Coweta County Fair starts later this month. We would be remiss if we did not mention all the livestock competitions, the myriad of ways to lose your money trying to knock over a milk bottle, the cotton candy, some pretty darn good cheesesteaks and pizza, and of course the rides. That’s why people come. And that’s why they should. It’s a fair.

Since the year 2000, the Newnan Kiwanis Club has given out back to the community’s nonprofits roughly $3.8 million from money raised from the fair. It’s important to note that the Kiwanis run the fair on a purely volunteer basis. It’s also important to note that all the nonprofits who receive funds from this great event also volunteer their time. There is no free lunch, so to speak. Everyone pitches in to ensure the guests have a great time, which in turn helps the club raise all the money it can so it can turn around and give it away. But it takes a lot of work. Yet we actually do have a lot of fun in the process. I say “we” because in a moment of weakness or the desperate need for more dues income, they let me join. I am looking forward to the fair. Most importantly, I am looking forward to that one Tuesday the fair is in town. It’s the only day the fair opens early, and only a select group are let in. You see, that’s the day the parking lot is filled with dozens of yellow school buses. Hundreds of special needs kids and adults, as well as helpers and parents, are going to be streaming off those buses. During that period of time, a ride operator will pick a kid up out of his wheelchair and place him on the Himalaya, or the Speed Freak, the ferris wheel or whatever. For that moment, the kid is not confined. He is upside down, twirling in circles, spinning backwards. He, or she, is free. I know this because I watch their faces. It is one of my favorite days of the year. And I can say without hesitation, for many, many others as well.

For others though, it’s something else.


“By three methods we may earn wisdom. First by reflection which is the noblest. Second, by imitation which is the easiest. Third, by experience which is the bitterest.” … Confucius


I am constantly amazed at the large number of nonprofits here focusing on just about every need you can image. Apples to Zebras I’ve said more than once. I think one reason there are so many nonprofits here is because not only are they welcomed, but there are so many locals willing to donate their time and money to so many worthy causes.

Until next time.

Your Financial Future When it comes to your finances, it’s good to follow this wise tip: Hope for the best, but plan for the worst. This is especially important as you enter your retirement years. Aging can change many things in a person’s life, including the ability to manage one’s own money. These steps can help you prepare for any eventuality: 1. Organize your important financial documents. Give copies to trusted loved ones or let them know where to find them. Make lists of the following and store in a safe, easily accessible location: bank and brokerage statements and account numbers, online bank and brokerage passwords and PINs, location of safe deposit box and keys, mortgage and credit information, insurance policies, retirement benefits and Social Security information. 2. Give your financial professional your emergency contact information in case he or she can’t reach you or suspects something is wrong. 3. Consider creating a durable financial power of attorney, which gives a trusted person the legal authority to make financial decisions for you in the event you cannot. That person is called your agent. A financial power of attorney differs from a health care power of attorney, which covers only health care decisions. 4. Keep all of the above information as current as possible. Be sure that your financial professionals are informed of changes in your emergency contact or agent. 5. Speak up if something goes wrong. If you ever think someone is taking advantage of you or that you’ve been the victim of a fraud, speak up. Sadly, sometimes even family members, financial professionals and other people you think you can trust commit financial crimes. To learn more about how to protect your money, visit

Is It Enough … “How is a person promoted to sales management?” was the question from a rising development representative. I offered several answers -- be the top sales leader, be with the company the longest, be a friend of the boss, a nephew of a principal partner, a squeaky wheel, or the office kiss-up. Or maybe, just maybe, the right person actually gets promoted the job. Let's hope the latter is true. “So, what does the right person look like,” she asked. A great sales manager is one who has the ability to lead, teach, admonish and help a sales team succeed. A great sales manager is knowledgeable and knows every aspect of the job he or she is requiring from the sales staff, individually and corporately. Though a true professional is always learning, the greatest transfer of knowledge is always from the manager to those under him or her. The manager should lead in innovation bringing concepts and strategy to the team's repertoire. "It is enough that a disciple does as his teacher." Matt 10:25. In this scripture, Jesus is encouraging his newly appointed disciples to emulate him. A student is never greater than his teacher and a servant is never greater than the one he serves. Jesus was sending them out to do the work of their calling. He taught them to go by faith and rely on the Father to guide them as he does himself. Jesus was the great example, the leader, the standard to follow. Unequivocally, the fault lies with the person appointing someone to the position. Regardless of who God has placed in leadership over you, realize and accept your invaluable opportunity to grow and mature. Submit to the authority, take captive every thought, quench the rebelliousness, humble yourself, trust in God and not man, and so many other challenges are yours to face. God is there for you, He knows where you are and what you are facing. He's not in the dark about it. Trust! He will help you through in spite of others. If you are a sales manager can you repeat the words of Christ and say, "It is enough that my sales team does as I do. If they are like me, they are good?" A great sales manager should have the skill to lead others, ability to teach from experience, capability of administering accountability without partiality, and tactfulness to build a team through success and guide a team through conflict. Here are questions every sales manager should look in the mirror and ask of himself/herself: 1.

First, why did I accept the position?


Can I grow into the position or do I need more training?


Will I rely on my team too much to do them any good, or will I hold others back in their success?


Can my team financially afford my training process?


Will I lose or gain the respect of those I will be leading?


Can I confidently become what I need to be, or is there self-deceit?


Do I truly care about others, or is pride involved?

Hey, these are all questions I should have asked myself when I was appointed to a management position decades ago. It was a job I did not deserve or in the best interest of others. I was the cheap solution to that business owner's problem. Yet, I was too stubborn to relent, and my first attempt at managing was a wreck and a total disaster. I should have never been offered the job. I wish someone would have cared enough about me earlier in my career to guide me. I wish I had cared enough about those who worked for me and just walk away or simply decline and step aside. However, in His infinite wisdom, God carried me through the trials, training, job experiences, failures, and successes that have made me what I am today. It isn’t a question of self-worth, but rather a confidence (or lack thereof) in the knowledge and experiences needed to be viewed as a proven resource. Knowing what to say and when to say it makes all the difference. Where are you in your career? Is there more to learn? Are you ready? Is your heart and mind right? Can you add value to those around you?

Savor the flavors of India Last fall, I read an article in Milk Street Magazine in which Christopher Kimball wrote about a visit to Hanoi. There, he enjoyed foods like lemon grass with clams, grilled foods like eggs in the shell and sweet potato, and coffee served with condensed milk and raw egg. “The realization dawned slowly,” he said. “There is no ‘ethnic’ cooking. It’s a myth. It’s just dinner or lunch served somewhere else in the world.” I’ve since learned there is great debate among foodies about his there-is-noethnic-cooking comment, but it gave me something to think about. If I visit, say, China one day and come across a roadside stand selling tomato sandwiches on white bread, or a box of fried chicken and cornbread, will they call those “ethnic” foods from the US? Whether it’s truly “ethnic” or not, food from other countries is fun to enjoy and helps make the world a smaller place. It’s also quite delicious! My friend Ginger Cato in North Carolina, whom I met online many years ago through our mutual love of tea, learned that I like Indian food and shared what has become my

all-time favorite slow cooker recipe, this Indian Butter Chicken. Whenever I raid my spice cabinet for all these beautiful and aromatic spices, I wonder whether the dish is as beloved back home in India as I find it here. I’ve never met a curry dish I didn’t like, and the curry and cardamom in this recipe make it quite the favorite at my house. In fact, I’ve even made it something of a challenge to try the Indian Butter Chicken every time I visit an Indian restaurant in another city. So far I’ve had it in Peachtree City, Suwanee, Nashville, Indianapolis, and London. I’ve enjoyed them all, but I’ve yet to try a version that I like any better than the slow cooker recipe from my friend Ginger, who graciously gave me permission to share it with you here.

The Kitchen Witches at Newnan Theatre Co.

Isobel Lomax and Dolly Biddle are two “mature” cable– access cooking show hostesses who have hated each other for 30 years, ever since Larry Biddle dated one and married the other. When circumstances put them together on a TV show called The Kitchen Witches, the insults are flung harder than the food! Dolly’s longsuffering TV-producer (and son) Stephen tries to keep them on track, but as long as Dolly’s dressing room is one inch closer to the set than Isobel’s, it’s a losing battle, and the show becomes a ratings smash as Dolly and Isobel top both Martha Stewart and Jerry Springer!

Employees from BB&T’s Peachtree City branch recently volunteered at Christian City. From left, Candace Swiftbird, Gail Belliston, Carol Wilcox and Brandy Wingate also presented five new desktop computers to Christian City Children’s Village through BB&T’s “Lighthouse Project.”

Thanks to a group of seven community-minded employees at BB&T’s Peachtree City branch, Christian City Children’s Village recently received five new desktop computers through the bank’s “Lighthouse Project.” The group also volunteered their time and effort at Christian City, helping with several different projects across the 500-acre campus. Connie Hall, volunteer coordinator at Christian City, commented, “We were thrilled to get the call from BB&T’s volunteer team about their desire to help our children and seniors.” Even when rainy weather hampered the planned community garden project, the BB&T volunteers gladly moved indoors and assisted with other projects on the “needs” list. “From organizing a storage closet to visiting with senior residents, we greatly appreciated each and every contribution from the BB&T volunteer team,” Hall said. BB&T employee and volunteer project captain, Gail Belliston, recently moved to Georgia from Utah. “I heard about Christian City Children’s Village through Peachtree City Christian Church,” said Belliston. “Until we volunteered on the campus, I had no idea there were so many different ministries at Christian City. Now I want to do more,” she said.

Belliston’s co-worker and member of the volunteer team, Carol Wilcox, especially enjoyed interacting with the residents of the Christian City Skilled Nursing & Rehab Center. “The senior residents really appreciated our visit. We played bingo, told stories and jokes,” Wilcox said. “It feels good to bring a smile to someone’s face.” BB&T’s “Lighthouse Project” encourages employees to give back to their communities by volunteering. In conjunction with their volunteer efforts, the team can apply for financial assistance to support the needs of the organization. “Part of our bank’s mission is to help communities achieve financial security and economic success,” Belliston said. “In addition to our volunteer projects, we were pleased to support Christian City Children’s Village by providing needed computer equipment to help the children continue their success in school and maintain a 100% graduation rate,” she said.

Foundation readies for Third Annual Power of the Purse

The Newnan/Coweta Boys & Girls Club hosted a weekly book club for its members ages 6-9, 10-11 and 1214. The sessions occurred twice a week, and an average of 10 members participated in each session. At the time of their report, they had completed two of the three eight-week sessions planned.

The purses are coming out as the Coweta Community Foundation readies for its Third Annual Power of the Purse Luncheon on Thursday, October 26, 2017 at The Newnan Center. The event will include the announcement of the 2017 Woman of the Year, a live auction of dozens of designer purses, and an outstanding keynote speaker. Erin Marsh, the Coweta Community Foundation's new Special Events and Programs Coordinator, at left, and board member Vicki Kaiser, who is chairing this year's Power of the Purse, look over some of the items being lined up for this year's event. Minda Dentler CCF announced earlier this year that Minda Dentler will be the speaker for this year’s event. Dentler is an insurance professional, triathlete, health advocate, speaker and mother. Despite having legs that were paralyzed from contracting polio in India, Dentler became the first female wheelchair athlete to complete the Ironman World Championship in Kona, Hawaii. This accomplishment in October 2013 led her to become an ESPN ESPY Award Nominee for Best Female Athlete with a Disability. Dentler has been featured on CNN, NBC, Time, CCTV America and in Glamour magazine. She has also written articles for Time and Huffington Post on the importance of global childhood immunization and polio eradication. Dentler is a 2017 Aspen Institute New Voices Fellow. She earned an MBA from Baruch College in New York and a BA in Management Information Systems from the University of Washington. She currently resides in New York City with her husband and daughter.

Individual tickets start at $75 each and may be ordered by calling 770-253-1833 or by visiting and clicking on the “Events” tab. ###

“We have seen some very promising results,” said Executive Director Lauren Odom. “At the end of the fall session, five percent of the participants had improved in their reading proficiency according to our Stride Academy assessment. We have learned a great deal throughout the course of the book club, most importantly how vital a program this has been for our members. Not only have our results been encouraging, but we have noticed a change in our members and their desire to read. During the spring and summer, our members read and analyzed several books. The majority agreed ‘Stink and the Midnight Zombie Walk’ and ‘No Talking’ were their two favorites.” Odom said the grant allowed the Newnan/Coweta Boys & Girls Club to offer additional help to members struggling in reading and unable to get assistance outside of school hours. The youth have shown promising improvement and have developed new passions in reading. Not only have their thoughts toward reading and their proficiency improved, but they have also been given the chance to learn leadership skills and confidence

A CCF grant to the Newnan/ Coweta Boys & Girls Club has encouraged the reading proficiency of local youth. as they lead group discussions and read aloud to one another. The book club has served 40 members in total, and plans are to host the book club for 20 more during the fall semester. The grant funds were used to purchase books, materials, snacks and other supplies for the Newnan/Coweta Boys & Girls Club. Odom said the club plans to continue this project and would like to allow other age groups to participate, specifically their high school members. “It will be funded with generous grants, such as the one provided to us from the Coweta Community Foundation, and by our board members' fundraising efforts,” she said.

Plan today, no one is guaranteed tomorrow My mother-in-law was Dot Dow. Dot raised three children, one grandchild and was married to her high school sweetheart. Her best friend in the entire world was her sister Louise. In her 82 years, Dot lost many loved ones. Dot watched as her husband died from Frontal Temporal Dementia when he was only 64 years old. Then she lost her daughter Joy, when Joy was 46. Joy had been dealing with Bi-polar disease with schizophrenia since high school. Dot’s sister, her best friend, died a few years later. This loss hit Dot especially hard. Her sister had always been there for her through the loss of her husband and child, but now, she had to go through this loss without her. Eleven years ago, Dot lost her mom, Babo. She was 98 years old. Even though Dot had suffered many losses in her life, she was a happy greatBeth Dow grandmother. She got to see some of her great-grandchildren every week, a grandson at least one or two times a week, one son lived with her and the other son – and favorite daughter-inlaw, me – lived 100 feet from her. Then last year, Dot was murdered in a home invasion. In a million years, we could have never imagined that Dot’s life would end in that manner. We live in Lone Oak for goodness sake. We all felt that Dot would live forever. We used to tease her that she was going to outlive all of us. She had her mom’s good longevity genes, so why wouldn’t she live into her 90s as well? That is what we thought. So why I am telling you this story?

Because no one expected my fatherin-law to die at 64. He was in the best shape of any 60-plus year old that I knew. He ran the Peachtree Road race every July. No one expected Joy to die. She was only 46 years old. No one expected Louise to die. One day she was applying lotion to her face and neck, and felt a lump. And then Dot. We know our parents will die. We know we will die. We just think it will happen later. Much, much later. But often, very often, we don’t get later. Very often it comes today. A loss of a parent is always hard, but when you don’t have everything in order; when we don’t have a plan for who should make decisions for us; when we haven’t told family members where important documents are located or that they even exist – a difficult time can be even more traumatic. If you do not have a plan or have not shared that plan with loved ones, I ask you to do just that, now. Don’t wait. If you need help with your plan, contact me. As a Geriatric Case Manager, I can help you with a plan, or refer you to someone, that will bring peace of mind to you and your family. My email is The end of August marked the one-year anniversary of Dot’s death. We were fortunate, in that Dot had everything laid out for us. She had already made all the decisions. What a wonderful gift! Don’t take for granted that you will have tomorrow. Plan now to leave one last gift to your loved ones. n Beth Dow is the owner of Home Helpers and Direct Link of GA & AL.

September Tips, Trends and Trendsetters Corby is known to many as a Power Shopper, the Little Black Dress and a fashionista. 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 SONSs of Thunder.

with Corby Carlin Winters

If you have the itch to pitch, clean out the clutter and/or just do a deep clean, let me suggest you call Nook and Cranny owners Tara and Greg Wright. As Tara explained, they named the business Nook and Cranny because that’s how deep they clean. Cleaning is their passion and helping others walk in freedom and serenity from their stuff is a large part of their mission.

Each month I want to cover topics that you care about and can help you improve your life. As a longtime counselor, life coach, as well as working in ministry, my goal is to help others embrace their lives and live in their passions and purpose. I love helping others face life challenges head on ~ whether it be in health and wellness, fashion and style, business and yes, even the kitchen.

Kitchen accessories that make you a Pro Are you an awesome cook or do you want to be? Either way, if you want to have a blast in your kitchen may I suggest that you check out Downtown Olive on the Square in downtown Newnan. You will be amazed at the vast supply of kitchen gadgets and tools. It is basically a one-stop shop for almost all your kitchen needs. They even have custom-made paracord handles for your large Yeti cup. You can find great grab and go gifts, unique salt and pepper shakers, and more than 200 inspirational and fun dish towels.

right here so we can shop local and not have to go to Atlanta. I am blessed that Winters loves to cook and he is quite good. I love to cook as well but our styles are not the same. When my parents passed away I kept many of my mom’s wooden spoons and measuring cups. Maybe one day your kitchen gadgets will be passed down to your children and they will also have great memories of their times in the kitchen with you.

Got an itch to pitch There are those that simply have the gift of getting organized and cleaning house. They have no problem pitching, purging and giving away things they no longer need. Fall is a perfect time to purge our stuff since children are back in school.

Downtown Olive also has at least 40 cold pressed extra virgin olive oils infused with regional flavors. They also carry all kinds of vinegars, and both those items will enhance your recipes and make you feel like a pro in the kitchen. Best of all, they sell reusable bottles in a variety of sizes so once that bottle is empty, just return it and only pay for the refill.

If you regret not having a Green Egg on Labor Day, you can still buy one at Downtown Olive. They have almost every Green Egg accessory and all the supplies you could ever need. It’s great to have these kinds of stores

Just like Winters, Tara’s husband Greg is a minimalist while Tara and I have a lot (emphasis on “lot”) in common. However, I am still in the process of learning to stay organized. And I do love to pitch and donate my things to several non profits (One Roof and New Beginnings for example) and share stuff with friends. For me some things are easier to let go of than others. But Tara has learned to let go of things that aren’t needed anymore to make room for the new things God has in store. She too understands the struggles many face with holding onto things they no longer need and works to help them change their lives for the better.

Hot fall fashions that are fabulous and forgiving I love a cool breeze in my hair and the smell of pine in the air. It is hard for me to not get excited about Fall. Ok, it may still be 80 degrees but let’s call it Fall anyway. I use to get all excited when it was time to head back to school because I was looking forward to all the fall fashions. Fall fashions are in shops all over our neck of the woods and at Wedgewood Boutique at Wesley Woods, store managers, Joan Achee and Miss Francis Goodson told me that ponchos are back! Also trending are fluffy, comfy wraps, sweaters and roomy tops. Boots make a perfect addition to anyone’s closet. They are timeless.They can be worn with just about anything. The best news about wraps and ponchos is that they are as forgiving as shoes and purses. They always fit.

The hottest color for fall is red in every shade, especially deep burgundy, plum and fuchsia. Jackets, boots and heels made of velvet are trending too. I do love velvet. I remember when it was so popular years ago - it can be chic and fun at the same time. This season head to toe denim is calling, which used to be considered a glamour don’t. ❦ September 13, 2017 ❦ The SHOPPER ❦ Page 13

Yes, I said it, white can be worn in the Winter. I know that makes a lot of people uncomfortable but it is true. I can’t wait to pull out my old ponchos and wraps because they are timeless. These are some great ways to look fabulous this Fall.

Random Acts of Kindness I have to be honest, I love getting presents. I really do. (This is where Winters says, “Really?!) But I also love giving them, especially when they are unexpected. Just this week I gave a purse to a dear friend of mine. When the eldest was dating this darling young lady I gave her a knock out pair of my high heel shoes for the prom. I am still smiling about that one. It is said that it is better to give than to receive. That is particularly true when you see the joy it brings to another.

Too my surprise just the other day I was working out and my friend Rhonda Donaldson, co-owner of the Good Buy Girls, who sells eclectic and one-of-a-kind antiques, as well running estate sales, ran in and gave me a pillow I have wanted forever. Rhonda knew how much I adore the pillow and said I might just get it one day. And unexpectedly Rhonda hand-delivered it to me and It made my day! Whether paying for the person’s order behind you in the drive thru or giving a present when some least expects it, giving unexpected gifts and paying it forward are timeless trends.

Q. I have large, black caterpillars

At ResourceMFG, we specialize in staffing for manufacturing facilities. Our recruiters have knowledge of the manufacturing industry and established relationships with the top companies in your area.


Although birds eat armyworm caterpillars, they are no match for hundreds of them on one lawn. If you find more than 2-3 armyworms per square foot, then that’s an indication you may need to treat with an insecticide.


Products containing Bt (Bacillus thuringiensis) are effective only on small (a half-inch or smaller) worms. Carbaryl (Sevin), pyrethroids (pyrethroids are those active ingredients listed on a label that end in “-thrin” ) and other recommended insecticides are effective caterpillar killers.

with orange stripes falling from my trees in the front yard. Are they the caterpillars that will hurt my grass?

This is going to be the most original name you’ve ever heard for an insect, but what you have described is an orange-striped oakworm. I believe they must have run out of interesting names the day they named that caterpillar. Regardless, they do not eat grass and are usually not a serious problem for mature oak trees. INSERT OAKWORM PHOTO

This time of year we get a tremendous number of calls about all kinds of hungry caterpillars that are defoliating trees. First of all, as long as your tree is mature and relatively healthy it should not suffer any long-term damage from the loss of leaves. Photosynthesis slows in late August and the trees would naturally begin losing leaves not long from now anyway. If you have a young tree though, it might suffer severe damage as it is trying to become established. You can remove the oakworms from small trees by knocking them out with a broom. Although orange-striped oakworms do not affect turfgrass, there is another caterpillar that will, and that’s the dreaded fall armyworm. Fall armyworms can cause significant damage to lawns, hayfields and pastures in a very short amount of time and now is the time to scout for them.

Irrigate before treating to move the caterpillars out of the thatch. Treat in late afternoon or evening when the caterpillars are likely to begin feeding. If possible, mow before you treat, and then don’t mow for three days after the treatment. When applying an insecticide, make sure you read and follow all label directions.

The first sign that enemy armyworms are near might be large clusters of birds on your lawn. Look closer at the grass, and you may see several caterpillars munching on the turf blades. Young armyworms are one-quarter to threequarters of an inch long. Mature ones are one and a half inches. They are dark, with several light stripes down the length of the body. The head or “face” has an inverted Y on it.

Armyworms rarely kill an established lawn and cause mostly aesthetic damage, but they can severely damage or kill newly seeded/sodded lawns or drought stressed lawns. For more information about orangestriped oakworms or armyworms, contact the Coweta County Extension Office at 770-254-2620 or e-mail uge2077@uga. edu and ask for the Extension publications, “Oakworms”, “Fall Armyworms in Turf ”, or “Armyworms in Pastures & Hayfields”.

I had the privilege of attending the National Association of Realtors (NAR) Leadership Summit in Chicago on behalf of the Newnan-Coweta Board of Realtors (NCBOR), this summer. Incoming presidents for 2018, or president-elects, from local boards of Realtors across the country attended the Summit. The president-elects were trained for leadership positions, along with each board’s director or CEO. Elizabeth Hiett, who is our local Executive Director for the Newnan-Coweta board, attended with me. My trip certainly would not have run as smoothly without her. The summit was a fun and educational experience. It was also nice to see that I was not the only future Realtor board president with a little bit of anxiety about the position. Among the topics of discussion included the importance of using a Realtor vs. a non-Realtor. A real estate agent is anyone licensed to assist people buy or sell property. A Realtor is a trademarked term that refers to a real estate agent who is an active member of NAR. Unlike non-Realtors, Realtors are held to a code of ethics. Making the difference between a Realtor and a non-Realtor known to the public is one of NAR’S top goals. This initiative trickles down to the local boards also. The Newnan-Coweta Board of Realtors (NCBOR) has a designated allowance in our budget to promote this to the general public. The Leadership Summit had a special session on planning events/fundraisers and making them actually fun to go to. This is something NCBOR does a good job with. We have several events throughout the year, including the Million Dollar Club Awards, Summer Fling, Affiliate Expo and our Golf Tournament, just to name a few. These events are enjoyable and have good attendance, but we are always looking for ways to improve. While speaking with other Realtor boards from across the country, I gathered that our local board is very fortunate to have a great group of Realtors that are engaged and attend events. There were several other Realtor boards having major membership and attendance issues. Local real estate boards must comply with NAR’s core standards. These core standards were approved by NAR’s Board of Directors in May 2014, and were amended in May 2016 to replace the organizational standards (NAR website). There were training sessions regarding the core of standards held at the Leadership Summit. Our local board has recently been certified for complying with the core standards by the Georgia Association of Realtors (GAR). This was in large part due to our Hiett, our director, who guided the board through this process and kept us on task. We could not have done it without her. NAR’s Leadership Summit in Chicago prepared all of us for our responsibility in 2018 as Realtor presidents. I feel better prepared after attending. It was interesting to see NAR operate on a macro-level. It was also interesting to see what other boards did well and what they struggled with. Newnan/Coweta County is lucky to have a great group of local Realtors who care about their community and share an interest in making it a better place. Jess Barron is an Associate Broker with Lindseys, Inc. Realtors and President-Elect of the Newnan-Coweta Board of Realtors.

Billy Gray's 1955 Ford Convertible

There's something about cars and trucks that attaches itself to little boys, changing their lives forever. It starts with toy vehicles and progresses to homemade wooden go karts. From there it moves to your first "real" car then advances to that special hot rod or collector car. The final stage is when your cars are now worth twice the value of your home - you know because your wife tells you so every thirty days! And As early as possible, a "proper" car guy must choose his brand and stick with it for life. In my day it was easy as there were only 3 major manufacturers. Coweta County's Billy Gray is a Ford Man clear down to the bone! Looking at this car really brought back some old memories. It's a 1955 Ford Sunliner convertible restored to near showroom condition. "I had my shop restore this car in 1985 when I was a car dealer in Douglasville", Billy told me. "We started with a very original car in good condition and put it in great condition." He kept it in the factory original colors red and white, inside and out. Opening the hood I saw a nicely detailed 292 V-8 with a four barrel carb under the original air cleaner.

In 1986 Billy decided to see how his Ford would stack up against others in a car show. Well, I would say Billy didn't do too bad. Memorial day 1986, his old Ford won first place in the Charlotte AACA National show and was named Senior Winner! His was the first 55 Ford to win a national show. Yes, I would say the boys in Billy's shop did just fine! There are a couple of other vehicles in Billy Gray's garage that are waiting for a refurbishment, so after 32 years of ownership, it's time for another caring owner. For those of you who may have an interest, email joe@thecowetashopper. com for contact information. And if you see Billy Gray around town, tell him you "saw it in the Shopper!"

Looking Back with Joe Williams

An ‘Uber’ Banner Birthday by Joe Williams The third Monday in August was a banner day and turned out to be exciting for me in several ways. Inasmuch as this was my birthday, the ancient Cherokee Moon goddess, Uelanuhi, decided to place herself between me and the sun in honor of my Native American blood. Others saw it too and assumed it was just a “regularly scheduled” solar eclipse. Another birthday gift was from my Granddaughter, Anna Ogg, who had arranged for us to see the “socalled” eclipse from the top of Pannola mountain, a smaller version of Stone mountain. (By the way, Anna’s husband is from Scottish decent and not to be confused with those South Georgia Ogg’s!) We were to meet at her office in Locust Grove then take her car to the “event”, but due to a comedy of errors, I got to experience another “first” on my birthday - my first ride in an “Ubermobile”! Anna called Pannola State Park asking them to please “hold the event” a few more minutes then pushed a button on her smart phone. In less than 5 minutes the Uber driver arrived to save the day! I wanted to at least “act” like I knew what I was doing, so I pulled up memories of the many old 40’s and 50’s classic movies I had watched, hoping to come up with a few possible “taxi cab sayings.” “Follow that car!” “Get me to the airport in 10 minutes and there’s an extra 5-spot in it for you.” “Lose that cop car following us and there’s a C-note ($100 bill) in it for you!” “Won’t this jalopy go any faster!” When the Uber driver arrived, I jumped in the front seat and shouted out, “step on it! They’ll only hold the eclipse for us a few more minutes!” (But I stopped short of saying, “I’ll make it worth your while!”) Actually, Uber seems to be a pretty good system. It will get you from here to there, pick up and deliver a meal, and even purchase and deliver your groceries. But it’s nothing new. In 1950’s Newnan, there were several taxi companies. One group was headquartered on the court square. They were professional looking with uniforms, and all driving identical looking company-owned, late

model cars. I believe there’s a photo hanging in Goldens Restaurant of a group of taxi’s and their drivers parked in front of what is now Lindsey’s. Hamp and Ruby Smith owned a downtown grocery store that provided a “grocery service” long before Uber. I can remember my mother calling in her order for the weeks food. In a couple of hours Smith’s old pick up truck would arrive with our order, along with a young boy riding on the open tailgate ready to carry the food. Payment? Sort of a “sign and eat” system due Mr. Smith at month’s end. I’m sure, gentle reader, that you remember when Lee King delivered prescription drugs right to your door. Perhaps they still provide that Uber-type service. And if that medicine didn’t work for your sick child, Dr. Howard Glover would probably be quickly delivered to your home by the Newnan Taxi Company to examine the squalling youth. (Actually, Dr. Howard probably DIDN’T call a cab but I never let the facts get in the way of a good story!)

So Uber is just a new name for an old story. They found a need and are filling it, and that’s good business. I thought Uber was just a clown car with a long-haired hippy for a driver, but my recent experience has turned me around. They are high-tech, arrive quickly, and provide courteous service. I may just want to take another ride so I can practice a few more of my taxi cab phrases. But it won’t be “keep the change!”

The Film Fix with Jonathan W. Hickman nostalgic for a bit of peak Pauly Shore might want to see him again in his prime, but how many of you are really out there? Fans of his “Son in Law” might be curious.

Streaming Selects

What to binge: OZARK

What to binge: THE TICK Infinitely quotable (“defenestrated feline” anyone? or how about “zipline ejaculating vigilante?”), and wholesome (even with all the four letter words), Amazon has handsomely revived the previously popular comic book series this time when superhero properties have become a dominating media force. What sets “The Tick” apart from other comic book adaptations is that it doesn’t take itself too seriously. The story concerns the title character (played well by Peter Serafinowicz) and his relationship with Arthur Everest (Griffin Newnan).

Shot largely in Georgia, which doubles for the Missouri Ozarks, “Ozark” reminds me instantly of “Breaking Bad” but money-laundering replaces all that nasty meth cooking. Jason Bateman plays Marty Byrde, an accountant whose partner steals from a drug cartel putting everyone in jeopardy. After a brush with death, Marty cashes out and moves the family to the Ozarks where he hopes to build a new money-laundering empire. And build he does, with the begrudging help of his wife Wendy (Laura Linney). Brutally entertaining, Netflix has already greenlit season 2, so, fans, more “Ozark” is on the way. Suggested movie: AMORES PERROS Oscar nominated “Amores Perros” is the seriously impressive feature film debut from Mexican director Alejandro González Iñárritu (see “Birdman” and “The Revenant”). Following three intersecting stories, “Perros” is one the best of this kind of interwoven narrative (also utilized by Paul Haggis on his way to Oscar gold with “Crash”). The film focuses expertly on three different walks of life after a car accident in Mexico City. Highly recommended! What to avoid: JAWS 2, 3, JAWS: THE REVENGE Generally avoid any “Jaws” film with a number after it. All of them are available on the Netflix streaming platform starting this month. But while “Jaws 2” is bearable, anything thereafter is a downward slide. “Jaws 3” without the 3D gimmick is really excruciating, but the film does contain an early Dennis Quaid performance hinting at his undying charm and natural charisma.

Jonathan W. Hickman is an entertainment attorney, filmmaker, college professor, and novelist. More about Jonathan can be found by visiting

When the city is once again threatened by super villains, Arthur is forced to team up with the mysterious, and often forgetful, Tick. Essentially, a large blue human version of a tick, the Tick needs a sidekick to give him much needed intel and above all direction. But Arthur is on a mission of his own—to find his father’s killer, the villain known as The Terror (Jackie Earle Haley). The first 6 episodes, streaming now on Amazon, are unusual taking time to develop the characters and the zany world they inhabit. The setup is strong and constantly chuckle-inducing, which bodes well for season two. Suggested Movie: BLOOD CAR Atlanta writer/director Alex Orr’s “Blood Car” is really wonderful. Sure, it is a humbly made comic/ horror/science fiction film, but it is a must see for fans of high concept shows like Adult Swim’s “Your Pretty Face is Going to Hell.” The story is crazy cool. In the near future, because of high gas prices, folks turn to an alternate source of fuel—BLOOD. Okay, it isn’t a film for all tastes, but the cast makes the most of it, especially “My Girl’s” Anna Chlumsky. Give this one a spin and be patient, it’s bloody fun. What to Avoid: BIO-DOME There is no good reason to revisit this Pauly Shore/Stephen Baldwin comedy-stupid vehicle about two morons locked inside a bio-dome for a year. Sure, some folks

What to binge: THE HANDMAID’S TALE

One of the best original shows available to stream this year, “The Handmaid’s Tale” is downright remarkable. An adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s 1985 dystopian novel, HULU’s version seems so relevant and current in today’s uncertain political landscape. The story is set in a world where the majority of the earth’s population has become sterile. To combat this extinction event, governments have turned to draconian laws. This means that women, who are still fertile, are forced into sexual slavery in order to procreate. While it might seem farfetched, we get the intimate story of Offred (a perfect Elisabeth Moss) as she endures the harshness of her religiously twisted society. “The Handmaid’s Tale” is riveting and provocative. Suggested Movie: ORDINARY PEOPLE Movie nerds will always have a grudge against Robert Redford’s “Ordinary People” because it beat out Martin Scorsese’s “Raging Bull” for best picture in 1981. But it is really a worthy winner. Sure, “Raging Bull” is more significant to cinematic history, which reduces “Ordinary People’s” surprising win to a footnote. But “Ordinary People” is certainly worth revisiting, if for no other reason than to see the late Mary Tyler Moore in one of her finest performances. What to Avoid: KILLERS (2010) Sadly, this one was shot right in Senoia but brought some dishonor (critically speaking) on the house that “The Walking Dead” now inhabits. Katherine Heigl plays a women who falls for a spy played by Ashton Kutcher. A much lesser take on the “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” concept, comic action was intended but any laughs prove to be few and the action unconvincing.

Arthouse Corner THE OATH

Not to be Missed Appointment Television: WILL & GRACE (NBC September 28, 2017) Back on television after over a decade away, “Will & Grace” returns for a 9th season. With the entire original cast intact, I can’t wait to see what the gang has been up to. And good news, season 10 is already on the way!

Theatrical Teasers ANTI-MATTER When Oxford based, American PHD student Ana (Yaiza Figueroa) discovers teleportation technology, she decides to test it on a human subject—herself. But passing through a wormhole leaves her a little empty. Faced with many haunting existential questions, she and her partners Liv (Philippa Carson) and Nate (Tom Barber-Duffy) must solve the mystery of what might have been left behind.

Action director Baltasar Kormákur (See “2 Guns,” Everest,” and the upcoming “Adrift”) takes a partial detour by directing himself in the Icelandic dramatic crime thriller “The Oath.” The story concerns a heart surgeon named Finnur (Kormákur), whose daughter gets mixed up with a drug dealer. After trying to reason with his daughter to leave the dangerous boyfriend, Finnur decides to take the law into his own hands. His messy plan goes predictably wrong, and Finnur might pay the ultimate price. Kormákur is such a sure hand, both in front of and behind the camera, he manages to make this somber affair consistently interesting, if also not entirely satisfying. Look for “The Oath” in limited release in Atlanta.

Women in Horror Film Festival Running September 21-24, the Women in Horror Film Festival will be scaring audiences right in our neck of the woods. Housed entirely in the Crowne Plaza in Peachtree City, the festival features films made by women producers, filmmakers, writers, and actors. And above all is a celebration of all things horror.

In attendance at the festival are a number of heavy hitters in the horror movie industry. “The Walking Dead” executive producer and award-winning special effects and make-up wizard Greg Nicotero will be on hand for Saturday night’s panel on September 23. He will be joined by “A Nightmare on Elm Street” star Amanda Wyss along with “American Mary” filmmaking twin sisters Jen and Sylvia Soska. And, shameless plug here, the locally shot horror feature “DeadThirsty” is also competing in the festival. Directed by Jason Winn (“The Fat Boy Chronicles”) and written and produced by my wife Maggie D. Hickman, “DeadThirsty” is a horror/thriller following the classic slasher beats. Shot at the old Piedmont hospital on Hospital Road in Newnan, Georgia, the film is about a rave party that goes horribly wrong. Local crew and stars will be on hand for the screening on Saturday. For tickets and more information on the Women in Horror Film Festival visit

A swift combination of smarts, horror, and action, writer/director Keir Burrows’ clever science fiction indie starts like Shane Carruth’s award-winning 2004 film “Primer” but becomes its own unique take on the consequences of opening up black holes. Look for it in limited theatrical along with release on various streaming video on demand platforms.
