’ve heard it said, “If you ain’t movin forward, you’re a movin’ backwards, cause there ain’t no such thang as just sittin’ still!” Sitting still gets you run over – that’s what I’ve always said. And what seems interesting or popular today may become quite mediocre sooner than we think. So, with that in mind, The Coweta Shopper has made some changes we hope will continue to set us apart from other publications in our area. Our job is simple: to connect the citizens of Coweta County with the products, services and events available here, and to do so in an interesting, informative and positive way. Let me share with you some of the things you’ll see in this issue and with more to come in October.

Like to cook? You’ll see recipes by folks right here in our community. And if you like gardening but don’t have a green thumb, you’ll want to see, beginning in October, The Master Gardener’s Association’s feature of local growers along with some good tips. Latina Emerson will continue her money-saving ideas with “Coweta’s Deal Finder”, and Newnan’s well-known freelance writer and editor, Angela McRae, is now a regular with her popular “Teatime with Angela”. Coweta County Agent Stephanie Ray Butcher has joined us with a regular article concerning agriculture and natural resources, 4-H youth development and family and consumer sciences. (If you hate mosquitoes, check out Stephanie’s remedies in this issue.) Our own Joey Howard now combines his love of sports with a sports-oriented journalism degree to share interesting information about some of “ … many of them are small businesses the high school and professional teams. Our very who keep “our” money circulating popular Calendar of Events section will now be through “our” community.” larger, allowing you to keep up with things happening in Coweta. And we’ll certainly continue the “Encouraging Words” which may help you get ahead or maybe just “get through the day”! I like mechanical stuff – things with wheels and a motor, so I’ll continue our “What’s in Your Garage?” article when I can find something interesting or unusual. And you will now be able to see all of this, and more, on a new, brighter looking type of paper allowing clearer text and images. But none of this would be possible without the support of the loyal advertisers who want to tell you about the products and services they offer right here in Coweta – many of them are small businesses who keep “our” money circulating through “our” community. (You’ll learn more about them in our “Business Spotlight” found in each issue.) And let’s not forget the United States Postal Service - the “Post Office”, who, out of the goodness of their heart, (along with a goodly sum of money from me), delivers the “Shopper” to over 48,000 homes and businesses. You might say, “We place it right on your kitchen table”. And at no cost to the reader! And finally, it takes a talented, efficient, hard-working staff to put this publication together each week. Our production manager, Ruth Harris Doyal, does most of the graphic design work and puts the paper together in an interesting, readable format. (About 1,350 issues so far!) She also has to keep up with all calendar of events and classified ads, while handling dozens of emails each day. And when the phone rings, who do you think is there to answer? Rusty Kuehl is a real pro at working with his ad clients. Some of our advertisers have done business with Rusty for over twenty years, and he takes great care of them. Joey Howard wears several hats. He sells and designs ads, writes articles, and is editor of our website. He’s been in this type of business most of his career and has added a lot to the company. And Robin McLaughlin, with her background in finance, accounts for all money coming in and going out, and is a joy to work with. They are all valuable members of our “team”. A man by the name of Joseph Swartz once said, “Think little goals and expect little achievements. Think BIG goals and win big successes!” The Coweta Shopper is a little paper with a big attitude, and we plan to continue “movin’ forward”, sticking with what works and changing when needed in order to be even more interesting, informative and positive. And with all this, we’ll continue to be the “Best advertising value in Coweta County”!

Teatime with Angela Tea 101: A Lesson for Beginners Coweta County students headed back to school in early August, but September will always be the month I most associate with a new school year. And even for those of us who ended our formal schooling long ago, September remains a great month to learn something new. For the tea lover who aspires to learn more about teatime, I recommend a short and easy lesson on some tea basics I call Tea 101. This lesson aims to teach only two things: what tea is and how some of the most popular varieties are made.

The tea plant itself is called Camellia sinensis. As the name suggests, it’s related to the camellias that grace our southern landscape. All true teas come from the Camellia sinensis plant, so beverages made from herbs such as chamomile and mint aren’t technically teas but are more accurately called “herbal infusions.” Did you know tea can be grown here in the South? The tea plant shown here grows in my backyard. My plant came from a fellow tea lover five years ago, and I’m told I can actually make my own tea from it one day if I choose. When I visited Hills and Dales in LaGrange years ago, I saw the Camellia sinensis hedge there and learned that it may have once provided tea for the Callaway family. Three of the most popular kinds of tea today are black, green, and oolong. When I first began studying tea, I was surprised to learn that the same tea plant can be used to make all three types of tea, and they differ in how they are processed. I see it this way. When you go to the grocery store and buy eggs, you don’t look for a carton marked “For Scrambled Eggs” or “For Fried Eggs” or “For Boiled Eggs.” You realize that all three of these delicacies are pos-
sible, and it’s simply how you cook the eggs that determines which food you’ll end up with. With tea, what matters is how long the tea leaves are allowed to oxidize, a process you’re already quite familiar with if you’ve ever sliced an apple and watched it turn brown. As theteaspot.com so concisely puts it, “Oxidation begins after the leaf has been plucked from the plant and begins a process of being dried, withered, rolled, and heat treated.” With black tea, the tea leaf is fully oxidized. With green tea, the tea leaf is barely oxidized at all. And with oolong tea, the tea leaf is partially oxidized.
Recently, I saw an advertisement for green tea made with “green tea plants.” That made me smile, because that would be somewhat like finding eggs marked “Fresh Eggs for Scrambling.” So remember: True tea comes from the Camellia sinensis plant, and black tea, green tea, and oolong tea can all be made from the tea plant. It’s their processing method that distinguishes these teas. Class is now adjourned so we can all go enjoy an afternoon tea break!

SPOTLIGHT: BOSS TREE SERVICE
Hard work, friendship keys to success for Boss By M.C. Gwinn Special to The Coweta Shopper Friendship and business. Business and friendship. Either way, Boss Tree Service has combined those two ingredients to keep people covered when it comes to tree work here in Coweta County and surrounding areas. Growing a business today – like Boss Tree Service – is not an easy task. In fact, around 50 percent of the businesses started will close within a year. Another 35 percent will close within five years while only less than five percent make it over 20 years. Aaron Hurd and Tylor Gwinn, the owners of Boss Tree Service, were not worried about the odds. While being best of friends, they were both being led towards a career in the tree business. Aaron started performing tree work after requesting and getting a chain saw for his birthday. Tylor met a man who took him to the Midwest and trained him for storm-damage tree work. After spending years working on their own
Boss Tree Service will enter into its 5th year in 2016.
separately, they both joined a local tree company to begin honing their skills. Once the time was right and their skills were well-rounded, they decided to work together. Thus, Boss Tree Service was born. Aaron and Tylor did not start Boss Tree Service with the foundation of making money, but with the intention of serving others by giving the best tree service they could give. Both are bright young men and could become successful in any endeavor. They
just wanted to be happy in what they do best – and that is – serving others. Both wanted a company people could count on time after time. They wanted Boss Tree Service to become the people’s tree service for life. Aaron and Tylor also wanted to serve their customers as if they were serving their friends. Customers quickly realize after meeting these two young men – Aaron is foreman on the jobs and Tylor gives the estimates – it’s not hard at all
to become their friend. Although next year will be its fifth year, Boss Tree Service has already become one of the leaders in the area. This leadership wasn’t built on how much work Boss Tree Service has done or the pieces of equipment it owns. Boss Tree Service has earned its place as a leader in tree work based on the quality of work demanded of its staff for the customers… or friends. It doesn’t take much to find Boss Tree Service in the Coweta County area. If you don’t see its clean trucks on the streets while driving, you may see the Boss Tree Service 100-ft. crane in a neighborhood or one of its dump trucks dropping off free wood chips to a neighbor. One may even see mention of Boss Tree Service in quality publications such as The Coweta Shopper or a yard sign in one of its friend’s yards that is undergoing work. And last, but not least, one may see Boss dropping off firewood or delivering milled roughhewn lumber. Indeed, Boss Tree Service is not hard to spot. Boss Tree Service has a

Tree work is never in the budget and is not a service used as frequently as lawn care. Boss Tree Service certainly understands this dilemma.

Now that’s true friendship and business.

Northgate rolling; off to perfect 4-0 start By Joey Howard The Coweta Shopper After four weeks of the 2015 high school football season, the Northgate Vikings have been the most impressive among Coweta County teams. The Vikings opened their Region 4A-AAAAA part of the schedule with another offensive onslaught last Thursday at Tara Stadium. Northgate rolled over winless Morrow, 56-0. Northgate, now 4-0 overall, sprinted to a 28-0 first-quarter lead and never looked back. Turner Hughes and Kyle Cater scored 2 touchdowns each in leading the attack. For the season, the Vikings have outscored their opponents by a combined margin of 203-6. The Northgate victories have been vs. Shaw (45-0), Troup (55-6), WoodlandHenry (47-0) and Morrow. Next, Northgate will continue its string of six consecutive region games by hosting Mundy’s Mill. Northgate hopes to avenge last year’s 41-34 loss to the Tigers. Last week, the East Coweta Indians (3-0) and Newnan Cougars (2-1) had open dates as both squads prepare to enter Region 3-AAAAAA play. East Coweta travels to Campbell while the Cougars visit South Cobb this week.
Area High School Football Schedule FRIDAY, SEPT. 25
East Coweta is coming off a 42-0 blanking of Whitewater on Sept. 11. The Indians have been led offensively by running back Devonte Brown who has scored six touchdowns in three games. A year ago, East Coweta handily defeated Campbell at home. The Spartans enter at 2-1 on the season having lost to Lakeside, 50-41, on Sept. 11. To date, East Coweta has defeated Arabia Mountain (35-28), Harrison (24-10) and Whitewater. Newnan looks to bounce back after a 34-0 loss at Sandy Creek two weeks ago. The Cougars kept it close, trailing only 13-0 at the half, but the Patriots scored three TDs in the third quarter to win going away. The Cougars face a South Cobb team, now 1-2, which lost decisively to Marietta (30-12) its last time out. For the season, Newnan has beaten Carrollton (34-13) and Marietta (27-7) with its lone loss to Sandy Creek. In other games on Friday,

Some of my random tidbits and thoughts on sports. • Was thinking about how youngsters today have missed out on a wonderful part of college football – listening to games called by legendary radio announcers. With almost every game on TV or on a webcast, radio is a forgotten media to the young folks. TV producers must find radio announcers fascinat-
ing because on many telecasts, the play of the game is replayed with a radio announcer’s call. Growing up on the Mississippi coast, I would listen to games at night – especially on those clear-channel AM stations like WWL, WHAS and WSB. Some of the announcers I listened to were John Ferguson at LSU, Stan Torgerson of Ole Miss, Jack Cristil of Mississippi State, Larry Munson of Georgia, John Ward of Tennessee, Cawood Ledford of Kentucky, John Forney at Alabama and Al Ciraldo of Georgia Tech. Others later were Jim Fyffe of Auburn, Charlie McAlexander of Vanderbilt and Jim Hawthorne of LSU. Man, could those guys paint a picture while you listened. • Saw where Milo Hamilton died last week. Milo was 88. He came to Atlanta with the Braves radio announcing team in the move from Milwaukee. He was best known for calling Henry Aaron’s 715th home run in 1974. He spent the last portion of his career calling Houston Astros games. • Now there are four stadiums in the Southeastern Conference with over 100,000 seating capacity – Kyle Field (102,512), Neyland Stadium (102,455), Tiger Stadium (102,321) and Bryant-Denny Stadium (101,821). • One of the loudest, most
rowdy places to attend a college football game is LSU’s Tiger Stadium. I’ve probably been to a half-dozen games there. I remember listening to the radio broadcast of a 1979 game when LSU hosted No. 1 ranked Southern Cal. You could barely hear play-by-play announcer John Ferguson due to the constant crowd roar in the background. In fact, it caught the attention of USC’s All-American guard Brad Budde. He said, “This place (Tiger Stadium) makes Notre Dame look like Romper Room.” For the youngsters, Google “Romper Room” for reference. • Always love to read great football quotes.

. What can I do about mosquitos?
. Right now is the prime time to avoid mosquitoes. From August until 15 October mosquitoes. From 15 August until 15, mosquitoes are most active and are more likely to spread disease. No doubt you’ve heard the legendary jokes about the South’s mosquito population. There are even postcards picturing mosquitos large enough to carry a grown man off into the sunset. I grew up in the country on the edge of a large swamp and fought these pestering creatures for many years. The red, irritating bumps seemed to cover me up at times. I can still smell the Caladryl lotion that my mother slathered on me to relieve the itching. Mosquitoes are nasty little insects that transmit a host of diseases such as West Nile virus, chikungunya, and Eastern equine encephalitis, which is classified as the most severe mosquito-borne disease of humans in the United States although it is extremely rare. Mosquitos can even affect our most beloved pets by passing along heartworms to dogs and cats. In fact, they seem to wreak havoc wherever they go. Preventing mosquito bites is crucial to avoiding mosquito-borne illnesses, and there are things you can do to prevent mosquitoes from becoming a nuisance to you and your family: Remove sources of standing water Mosquitos must have a standing water source in order to breed, so get rid of any standing water. Take a good look around your home. Think about those areas or items that may hold water for a long time. Buckets, plant saucers, boats, tarps, old tires, toys, or anything else that holds water makes the perfect breeding ground for mosquitos. If you check around your home and don’t see any problem areas, then look up. How about your gutters? Leaves and debris in gutters provide the perfect home for mosquito lar-
Stephanie Butcher vae. What about rain barrels? They sure come in handy during a drought, but make sure the screens that cover openings are in place and use larvicidal briquettes (sold under a variety of trade names) to prevent larvae from hatching. While you’re at it, go ahead and check your window and door screens. Many mosquitos are attracted to light, and will make their way inside your home if they have a chance, especially on those cool fall evenings we sometimes experience in September and October. When you’re opening windows and doors to enjoy a little fresh air, don’t let the mosquitos in at the same time! Choose your clothing & repellants carefully. Mosquitos are most active at dawn and dusk, so be prepared if you will be outdoors when they are most active. Wearing the right clothing and applying a good repellant can help you avoid bites. Loose-fitting, light-colored clothing is best, and only use EPA approved repellants. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends products containing DEET for children as young as two months. Parents should apply the repellant to their hands and then apply it to the children. It is important to get good coverage of exposed skin and then wash the treated skin upon returning indoors. When using any type of insect repellant, always read and follow label directions. By following these tips, you can enjoy the last days of summer and the first days of fall without the irritating, high-pitched buzz of a mosquito flying around your head! For more information on mosquitos and insect repellants, contact the Coweta County Extension office at 770-254-2620. The Coweta County Extension office provides research-based, non-biased educational resources and classes in three program areas -- agriculture & natural resources, 4-H youth development and family & consumer sciences.
