Coweta County’s Moreland Elementary School is one of four Georgia schools selected as winners of the Georgia Department of Education’s 2014 Family-Friendly Partnership School Award. “The schools that won this award understand the importance of what welcoming environments bring to student success,” said State School Superintendent Dr. John Barge. This year’s FamilyFriendly Partnership School Award winners are: Moreland Elementary School; Cumming Elementary School, Forsyth County; Golden Isles Elementary School, Glynn County; and Midway Elementary School, Forsyth County. According to the state Department of Education, the winning schools were selected “because they represent the best in customer service for Georgia families,

whether it’s on the phone, in the front office or on the Internet. The schools have welcoming staff members, comfortable waiting areas, clear signage and engaging student work throughout the building.” “They have easy-tonavigate websites and are forging partnerships with parents to help improve student achievement. The schools also provide unique, engaging and innovative parent engagement programming that is successful in reaching all families in the school.” Moreland Principal Melanie Perry was thrilled to hear that her school was chosen for this year’s award. “Parents are a daily part of our school’s heartbeat,” said Perry. “We rely heavily on parent involvement to foster the academic, social and emotional growth of our students. Our parent volunteers are a cornerstone of what makes our school feel like such a family.”

suppose fashions come and go depending on what’s trendy at the time. And spring is supposed to be that time of year when we put away the cold weather garments in favor of more comfortable, and cheerful clothing suitable for the warmer, brighter, happier season. (Some folks wear so little on their bodies now days, it’s difficult to know whether they’re making a fashion statement or just didn’t finish getting dressed that morning!) Anyway, Easter Sunday has traditionally marked that transitional time when men and women, indeed whole families, would attend church sporting their spring garb – sort of a “religious fashion show” At least it used to be that way. And I still have vivid memories of the “behind the scenes drama” that took place at our home when I was a boy.

My mother was quite a talented seamstress and she made sure that all three (there would be two more later) of her children would show up for the Easter service looking like we had “just stepped out of a band box”, as they say. But if you could have seen what went on in preparation for that Sunday morning debut, you may have reported us to the Department of Family and Children Services. Thank goodness there was no such department back then! I was about seven, my sister and brother, 5 and 3. I’ll let them tell their own story, but as I remember, there was a combo of dancing, and hollering, and crying, as well at least two orations of “how not to get dirty once you’re dressed”. It started with a thorough cleaning of my face. Actually it was more of a “scrubbing” or “sanding down” of the skin. (I think she was mad at my dad and the more they “talked”, the harder she scrubbed) And after about 60 years, the skin on my face is still as ”tender as a new born baby” – at least between the wrinkles! And then there was the “bow tie”– that final touch that was to pull the whole outfit together. Being homemade, it had to be attached around my neck with a safety pin. And “attached” it was. The pin literally … we pulled up went through my skin and back into the in that old Buick, parked it, and bow tie on the other side – a good tight fit for sure! I cried and protested in pain, walked into that church looking like but was told it was “just a little tight”, and a million dollars! And that is to sit down and be quiet. There was no “Pure Showmanship”! time for discussion, as she had two others to get dressed, besides herself. Mamma was apparently still mad at my Dad, and when she pulled the brush through my sister’s thick, curly hair, Claudia was pulled right off the stool, brush and all! My brother “Spud” thought it was real funny until he got spanked for laughing. By then, and having finally seen the blood on my “clean” shirt collar, we were all crying. But I can tell you one thing, although we may have been a few minutes late, we pulled up in that old Buick, parked it, and walked into that church looking like a million dollars! And that is “Pure Showmanship”!

Post Script: This was actually the second time I got “pinned”. (And this is the truth I’m telling you with my hand up in the air) At about age 8 months old, Momma “attached” my cloth diaper directly to my posterior epidermis, and inasmuch as most babies cry most of the time anyway, the offending pin was not discovered until the next service interval or about an hour of crying, which ever came first.

. . . . A family business Sherry and Bob Lott have wanted to have a nursery since their days at the University of Alabama. Bob got a degree in botany and they both loved plants. “It was our plan to start our own business right after college”, says Bob, “but life took us in a different direction”. Fast forward to 2013. When they learned the former A&W nursery was closing, the idea of their own business was rekindled. “We decided to contact the owner to find out what would be involved in re-opening it,” said Sherry. “As Bob had been looking for a career change, and I was on summer break from teaching, we felt the may just be the right time to start this new chapter in our lives”. But there would be a lot of work involved in getting the place ready to open for the summer season, and the whole family pitched in and used their unique talents to make it happen. Bob and Sherry’s son Nick, along with his wife, Tabitha ran it during those days in April and May when they couldn’t be there. Their daughter, Kathryn, takes care of the marketing and social media, and all things creative, and her husband, Nate, remodeled the counter and built tables for display. For some additional marketing and business advice, the Lotts turned to their son and daughter in law, John Mark and Amy. At Southern Roots, you’ll find a variety of trees, shrubs, perennials, annuals and bedding plants, as well as products and tools to keep your garden and lawn green and healthy. And, if they don’t have what you’re looking for, just ask. “We’ll do our best to find it for you.” It’s that kind of attitude that sets their business apart from the “Big Box” stores. “We offer personal service, advice, and a convenient location away from the heavy traffic areas. Our Plants are top quality from growers we know and trust – all within the Georgia and Alabama areas”. When you are ready for gardening supplies and plants, stop by and see what Bob and Sherry Lott have to offer. Stop by often as the inventory is changing frequently. They’re friendly folks and have a passion for plants. But you’ll see that as soon as you meet them! _________________________

Toenail Fungus?

• Otoscopic Exam • Written Explanation • Written Recommendation • Better Hearing starting at $100 Per Mo. (Credit Approval Required).

Toenail fungus infection (“onychomycosis”) is an extremely common infection of the nails by fungus. The infection is stubborn, difficult to treat, and results in unsightly and often painful toenails. Treatments are often slow, time-consuming and far from 100% effective. If you have this difficult to treat condition and are between the ages of 18-70 you may be eligible to participate in a research study conducted by Dr. Mark Ling, testing a topical investigational medication for the treatment of mild to moderate toenail fungus infection. To qualify, you must have fungal infection of one or both of your big toenails, but the infection must involve between 20% and 50% of the nail, no more, or less. All study visits and study medication are provided at no cost to you and qualified participants may be eligible for compensation for time and travel.

: What is your advice for how to save on flights, hotels, rental cars and cruises?

“We always recommend to “bundle” flights, hotels, and rental cars into packages, which usually offers a lower total price,” said Michael Hicks, Executive Vice President at Uniglobe Travel Partners. :

When booking flights, Hicks says: ◆ Flying midweek is much cheaper than flying on weekends ◆ Being flexible on flight times and dates may lead to lower fares. ◆ Do not buy the day prior to departure ◆ Book travel arrangements on Tuesdays and Wednesdays ◆ Avoid holidays


“We are in close proximity to many cruise ports and coastal areas for those wanting a beach type of getaway, and we have mountains, lakes and state parks nearby for those wanting a more nature-oriented vacation,” McDonal said. :

In the Atlanta area, airfare to the Bahamas, Cancun, Jamaica and Dominican Republic tends to cost less. Also, avoiding airfare altogether can result in huge savings. From the Atlanta area, there are many cruise ports within driving distance, making cruising a fantastic option. These ports include Jacksonville, Tampa and Port Canaveral in Florida, as well as New Orleans, La. and Charleston, S.C. It’s also possible to drive to Ft. Lauderdale and Miami, Fla. : If a person is on a budget but still wants to get away, could you recommend some a) local trips and b) vacation destinations?

Airfare is often a large part of vacation expenses, so travelers should seek a vacation destination that has reasonably priced airfare, said Luann McDonal, Franchise Owner and Vacation Specialist at CruiseOne.

For local vacations, Hicks recommends Atlanta, which offers the “Atlanta City Pass” to the Georgia Aquarium, CNN Center, Zoo Atlanta and Fernbank Museum. Also in Atlanta, outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy Stone Mountain Park and Callaway Gardens. Other nearby options include Savannah, Chattanooga, Tenn. (Ruby Falls, Chattanooga Choo-Choo, Lookout Mountain), Charleston, S.C. and Chateau Elan Travelers can get the best prices to Europe during Resort in Braselton, Ga. November and early May, he added. In the U.S., Hicks recommends Maine (Summer-Fall), To save on cruises: San Francisco (cable cars, Alcatraz, wine country), Chicago, ◆ Travel during low season New York City, Orlando, Fla. (Disney World, Universal (September-November) Studios, Sea World and cruises leaving from Port Canaveral), ◆ Stay away from holidays Florida Keys, U.S. Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, Las Vegas and ◆ Travel consultants have relationships with the Washington D.C. cruise lines and may be able to upgrade you to a : What are the cheapest international destinations? better cabin, obtain lower rates, receive onboard credit, etc.

“If booking a family trip (4-plus people), we recommend starting to plan more than one year in advance due to payment options, customization of trip, more availability, and lower prices. A U.S.A. Today study found that booking travel arrangements 54 days in advance for domestic, 121 days for Europe and 83 days for Mexico will give you the “best” travel prices,” Hicks said.


: What are some reasonably priced destinations for family vacations?


“Cruises offer the best value because all meals and entertainment are included in the price,” Hicks said.

Q A :

The most affordable way to travel internationally is usually to find all-inclusive trips, which combine your airfare, car and hotel, said Hicks. He recommends Cancun, Jamaica, Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, Bahamas, Greece, Turkey, Mexico and Aruba.

“There are things for all ages on a cruise (spas, workout “Finding the “best value” should be the goal,” McDonal adds. facilities, miniature golf, water slides, tours of the ship, ice skating, musical performances, magic shows, etc.) All-Inclusive Resorts “Most consumers have an idea of where they want to go or what are also great choices for family vacations because food and type of experience they want to have and their goal is to get the best deal on that vacation. This is just another reason to utilize a entertainment are included in total cost of trip.” travel agent.” He also recommends Disney for families with children For instance, airfare between the U.S. and Europe is under the age of 12 and Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines, which currently very expensive due to high taxes. A travel agent can currently offers a “Kids Cruise Free” deal. work with a customer to find a vendor offering incentives for traveling to Europe to offset some of the cost, she said.

Smelly HouSe? After all the snow and cold weather we’ve experienced lately, we are all ready to throw open some windows and let in some fresh air. Out with the old stale germy air and in with some new fresh sweet air, minus the pollen. When your house is on the market, odors can either make or break a sale. How do you know if your house smells? If you cook, have children, own pets or smoke, you have odors and your house may smell fine to you, but to others it can be a turn off. How do you live in a house with any of the above and keep it smelling fresh? Cooking Odors – while your house is on the market, grilling is a great option for keeping the food odors down. Although I love the smell of bacon when I’m hungry, it doesn’t smell so great the next day when it’s lingering around. Fish, turnips, collards all of these delicious southern foods can really stink up a house, so you may have to wait until you move to enjoy these favorite dishes or enjoy them somewhere else while your house is on the market. Children – Especially teens have an odor that only that age group can produce. It must be the hormones ramping up and turning them into young adults. Keeping their bed linens washed weekly, keeping wet towels off the floor and keeping their sports clothing and equipment cleaned and out of their rooms will help a lot with their special scents. Babies and young children can go either way. Who doesn’t love the smell of a clean child with baby shampoo, lotion and powder all over them? It’s all rainbows and butterflies until you walk into the room where the “diaper genie” is kept, then it’s all downhill from there. Get rid of that dirty diaper tower and put their dirties in the outside receptacle while the house is on the market. Pets – I must be very careful here since I have pets of my own that help produce their own special “fragrance” around here, but my house isn’t on the market, so although I don’t won’t my house to smell like them, I don’t have to be as mindful about it as a home seller would be that has pets. Folks, pets smell! Dogs, cats, snakes, hamsters & gerbils, fish…they all create unpleasant odors. Cleaning their bedding, cages and tanks more than usual will help. Keeping litter boxes cleaned and placing their food in air tight containers will help. Using essential oils (aromatherapy) to remove odors not only makes everything smell wonderful, the essential oils have anti-bacterial properties and last longer than a spray or plug –in. Smoking – Just don’t do it! It’s bad for you…the surgeon general says so on the package of your cigs. If you must smoke, do it outside in an area where a buyer will not have to walk and wash your clothing, bedding, etc. more than you usually do. I’ve had sellers say “we never smoke in the house…our house shouldn’t smell like smoke!” Well I have news for you…to us non-smokers, the house still smells like smoke. It’s in your closets on your clothing, it’s in your beds on your linens and it stinks. It will kill a deal quicker than anything will. Don’t underestimate the sense of smell when you have your house on the market. For more help on preparing your house to sell, contact….
