John Michael Montgomery to headline Black Tie & Boots The West Georgia Technical College Foundation has announced that John Michael Montgomery will headline its 16th anniversary Black Tie & Boots concert at the WGTC Murphy Campus in Waco on Saturday, July 29.
sponsorships mean direct support to WGTC students in the form of scholarships.”
Montgomery joins the long and star-studded list of country music performers who have graced the Murphy Campus stage, including Blake Shelton, Little Big Town, Wynonna & the Big Noise and last year’s performer Kellie Pickler.
“We are extremely excited to have John Michael Montgomery as this year’s performer,” said West Georgia Technical College President Steve G. Daniel. “This concert is not just a fun event, but also a chance to focus on the success of our students with the support of the community and our business and industry partners. It’s a great time for everyone.”
Singer of popular love songs like “I Swear,” “I Love the Way You Love Me” and “I Can Love You Like That,” Montgomery was born in Danville, Ky., to parents who imparted a lifelong love of music. “Where most people have chairs and sofas in their living rooms, we had amplifiers and drum kits,” Montgomery said. “The family band played on weekends throughout the area, and my brother Eddie and I eagerly soaked up everything about it.”
WGTC President Steve G. Daniel said he’s thankful for the continued support that has made Black Tie & Boots a “staple event” over the past 16 years.
Though Black Tie & Boots has become one of the most highly anticipated events in West Georgia, its purpose has remained the same. All of the proceeds raised from the event support student scholarships. For more information about becoming a corporate partner, contact Jada Marcum at Jada.Marcum@ westgatech.edu or 678-664-0516.
The event includes a buffet dinner starting at 6 p.m. with the concert beginning at 8 p.m. Guests are treated to valet parking, a professional photographer and a walk on the red carpet. This year’s attire is the event’s traditional “black-tie optional.” And, of course, boots.
Montgomery took over lead singing chores after his parents divorced, and he performed for a while in a band called Early Tymz with Eddie and their friend Troy Gentry. Nashville talent scouts began hearing about and then seeing Montgomery perform, and by the early ‘90s he had a record deal.
Sponsorships, which include concert tickets and admission to a “meet-and-greet” reception with Montgomery, are now available for purchase. A limited number of individual and group tickets will be made available on July 1 pending availability.
The hits followed steadily, with songs like “Rope The Moon,” “If You’ve Got Love,” “No Man’s Land,” “Cowboy Love,” “As Long As I Live,” “Friends” and “How Was I To Know” establishing him as one of the elite acts of the era.
Visit www.westgatech.edu/foundation for sponsorship details.
He received the CMA Horizon award and was named the ACM’s Top New Vocalist, setting off a long series of awards that included the CMA’s Single and Song of the Year, Billboard’s Top Country Artist, and a Grammy nomination.
“We are humbled and honored by the tremendous support from our business partners and from the community every year,” said Kim Learnard, Executive Director of the WGTC Foundation. “Corporate
John Michael Montgomery will headline the West Georgia Technical College Foundation’s 16th annual Black Tie & Boots event on Saturday, July 29. Montgomery has sold 16 million albums and notched 15 No. 1 singles on the country charts over his 25-year career. For more information on Montgomery, visit www. johnmichael.com.

The Tips, Trends and Trendsetters with Corby Carlin Winters
Each month I strive to share current trends and ideas that are popular and impact our lives in positive ways. It is so hard to imagine that June is upon us and summer is here. Many are headed to the beach while others are opting for the Staycation.
Men layer too and for some of them they wear it so very well. Lorraine Beckman and her Rockin’ B Antiques are a bit of a legend with their great consignment booths. One such booth is 109, where Barbara sells her fabulous jewelry. Women will shop and literally spend an hour in Barbara’s booth, which she loves to call the Gathering of the Goddesses. Whatever your jewelry style, make sure it’s yours and let your personality shine.
I love covering style, fashion, health, wellness, beauty, relationships and everyday life tips and trends. It is my desire to bring you a variety of fun topics and sometimes, life-changing trends. I hope you enjoy them and please feel free to share The Paper and The Shopper with friends and family.
Summer vacations are a big deal, often more to children than to their parents. Not everyone can afford that special trip but let’s say you do. The vacation scenario looks a bit like this …
Layering bangles, bracelets and cuffs Stacking and layering bracelets, necklaces and rings is so hot! I love to layer, layer, layer. I always have but it is so popular right now. Someone once said to me “I can’t believe you wear such big jewelry and so much for such a short person. Oh well, I must say I do love “big” jewelry and layering it is indeed my thing and for many others.
You plan the trip, it’s time to go. You start packing which seems endless. You gather snacks for the trip. You board your animals and everyone loads in the car. And of course in the first ten minutes one of the munchkins asks that infamous question “are we there yet?” Honestly, I am already tired thinking about the trip. Here are just some ideas for your staycation ~ Get your bikes and head to Peachtree City and have lunch at one of their many fabulous restaurants or get a latte at Starbucks and dessert to take to the park. If you are a hiking person head to The Chattahoochee Bend and follow an orienteering path created by The Eldest Son of Thunder for his Eagle Project. I promise you will have great family bonding time. Also just head to downtown Newnan, shop, eat and fellowship. If you are a Walking Dead fan then go right over to Senoia and take in all the sights, eat and shop in their wonderful stores You might also want to head up to Serenbe and walk the labyrinth and have dinner at The Hill. But let me be perfectly honest my favorite words I like to hear at a staycation is “Miss Winters it is time for your massage and facial.” Now that is my kind of staycation.
Purchases with a Greater Purpose Can Be A Blessing You can find great jewelry everywhere in our neck of the woods, from thrift shops to consignment shops and local speciality stores. Jewelry can add fun, whimsy or sophistication to any outfit for women of all ages. If you layer cuffs and bracelets you may want to then go less on the necklaces. But I have friends that go all out and layer everything at all the same time and it totally works.
lection of unique curated goods. Kenya sells merchandise that gives back and helps those around the world from selling their beautiful handcrafted leather bags called “Live fashionably.” When you purchase one of these bag you help women in Ethiopia. You can also find colorful pillowcases made locally in Newnan by Erin Lamb, a young artist and philanthropist who has been spotlighted in The New York Times. For each sale a portion is given back to help children go to school Guatemala.
Businesses in our local communities are working to change the world and the lives of men, women and children everywhere. Greenhouse Mercantile in downtown Newnan is one of those stores that give back through the merchandise they sell on East Washington. Owner Kenya Brantley offers a col-
Blue Moon Boutique, also in downtown Newnan, is owned by Gay Koran and carries the TOMS brand. That includes TOMS shoes, sunglasses and handbags. If you purchase any handbag women are given birth kits, the sale of sunglasses provides eye care and for the sale of each pair of shoes a pair of shoes is given.

One Roof Ecumnical Minisrty uses its thrift shop sales to help those in our community. They offer financial assistance, a food pantry, and some life encouragement, When you spend money there your purchases go to helping others.
A Healthy Glowing Face Facial sheets and under eye boosts are all the rage in Hollywood and even in our neck of the woods. Looking and staying young is a multi-billion dollar business and it continues to grow. Many women experience ageism.
Rucking or Hiking - Call It Want You Want - It Is Exercise
However, often men catch a bit of a break on this one. Men can age and no one seems to judge them. But let’s be honest, women are not so lucky. But taking care of your skin and health is important at any age, eating right, drinking lots of water are great way to keep your skin young and vibrant. Moisturizers and sunblock are critical for longer term care of your skin for years to come. There are many products and skincare lines but the most important thing is to find what works best for you, your skin and gives you the results you want. But don’t be fooled, products can only do so much and whether your friends are telling you are not some are definitely going under the needle for botox and other fillers. Do not be so quick judge. But I will say these facial sheets are awesome and you can find them all over the area at various price levels.
So recently Winters learned all about a new activity called Rucking. Best yet, so did I. However, as I overheard the video Winters was listening too I was certain they were talking about good old hiking. Something we have done for years while living in Alaska and also being a part of Boy Scouts. But I was wrong, evidently if you put on a back pack, grab a hiking stick and start walking around your neighbourhood, then you are rucking. But do the very same thing in woods it is called hiking. This makes me laugh a bit because I’m certain some city folks are spending a lot of money to get specialized Rucking gear. And maybe they need it. Good news is if it gets men and women exercising then that is awesome. The important key is to stay healthy. We must exercise. So before you run out and spend loads of money buying an official rucking backpack, do your research. You just might grab a backpack from your garage and put some hand weights or heavy books in the back. I have done this many times and had no idea I was actually Rucking. The most important thing you need to know is get busy hiking, Oh, I meant to say Rucking. Call it rucking, hiking, walking. Bottom line is exercise and get moving.

Briefly describe yourself and what you do I am the husband of Brenda, the father of James and Matthew and the grandfather of five of the smartest kids on earth. My son James and I own Welden Financial on Spring Street in Newnan where we do Financial Planning and Wealth Management. My family is active in the Newnan First Methodist Church and I am a member of the Newnan Kiwanis Club. Best business advice you’ve ever received? It was to do something you enjoy doing and always do what is in the best interest of your client.
You are hosting a dinner party for six. What five people, living or dead, would you invite and why? My parents and their parents. I know that is six, but my ancestors were all married. I always enjoyed listening to them talk while they were alive and I miss them. Name an as yet unfulfilled dream The one dream I have is to form and fund a foundation to support education and the arts in our community,, mainly music and the performing arts. If you weren’t doing what you are, you would be …
I would not change much. If I had to name one thing, it would be to travel and spend more time with the kids when they were young.
If I was not doing what I am doing I would be sad. I am enjoying life.

Dogs or cats? Neither. Nothing aggravates me more than being out enjoying life with someone and they have to go home to let the dog out or they cannot go somewhere because the dog will miss them. Pets are for old people and kids.

The Newnan City Hall Artist of the month for June is Kim Wright with a beach theme!
Everyone has their “go-to” place to eat. It might be with linen tablecloths and waiters in ties, or where you throw peanuts on the floor and carve your initials in the wooden tables. Whatever and wherever, it’s your “joint.” There are lots of these places around here, and we’re out to find them all in The Joints column. And yes, all are White Monkey approved.
El Taquito Located south of downtown Newnan off I-85’s Exit 41 (Moreland), is El Taquito. You have to enter through the BP truck stop to get to where you order. But don’t worry, there’s plenty of seating. Once there, a large billboard sign highlights the menu: nachos, taco salads, tortas, flautas, tacos, asada, quesadillas, fajitas and burritos. Meat options include steak, beef tongue, beef head, tripe, sausage, fried pork and other adventurous choices. And you won’t find a fountain machine here. The Cokes are in 500 ml glass bottles, and there’s no twisting these off. Fortunately there’s a bottle opener nailed to the wall right next to the refrigerator. And it’s bottled in Mexico. 1389 Hwy 29, Newnan - 770-252-2777 Mon-Fri: 8:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sat: 9:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sun: 10:30 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Tomo If you are a sushi lover and are really into the Zodiac, Tomo Japanese Restaurant might just be your place. The Capricorn roll, for example, includes shrimp tempura, spicy tuna with a lobster salad on top. Let’s just say they’ve got every combination of sashimi, sushi, and hand rolls you can think of. But that’s certainly not all. Lunch and dinner includes Hibachi specials as well as Bento box smorgasbords. There’s tempura offerings and special Udon or Soba dishes. For Japanese food lovers, this restaurant, smack in the middle of the Thomas Crossings Publix stripmall, is a hidden delight. Don’t be surprised if you have to wait. 90 Glenda Trace, Suite K, Newnan 770-254-8588 Mon - Thurs. 11 a.m. - 10 p.m. Fri - Sat. 11 a.m. - 11 p.m. Sunday noon - 10 p.m. Sun: 10:30 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Fabiano’s Pizzeria Any place where you can order a bowl of tater tots, and then top them with chili, onions, jalapenos and/or cheese, is just flat out going to be a great joint. And fights have been known to break out over who gets the last garlic knot. Such is Fabiano’s, right smack in downtown Newnan attached to the historic The Alamo, a former movie house and now live music bar. There are plenty of sandwiches to choose from, but Fabiano’s is best known for their pizza. It’s one of the few where you can order a “monster” slice or two. You have a slew of toppings to choose from and it’s all New York style, so don’t be bringing up talk about pies and Chicago. Totally White Monkey approved with wooden booths or tables - and kid friendly too. 19 North Court Square, Newnan 770-683-2683 Mon - Sun: 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
One does not go to CC’s to enjoy the decor. One goes there to eat some of the best chicken wings in the area. They’ve got family specials ranging from 30 wings and sides up to 70 wings and sides. Flavors include all the normal culprits, plus a few with the word “hot” associated with them. Order these at your own risk. Those atomic levels will certainly make your head sweat, but don’t be surprised if you fingers start to blister as well. But it’s not all wings. They are well known for their fried fish deals, which includes catfish, whiting or tilapia. They’ve got family packs for those as well. Dial the number and order away. You’ll find them across the street from Hemrick’s Super Thrift

Auditions Kitchen Witches Newnan Theatre Company is pleased to announce auditions for The Kitchen Witches, a comedy by Caroline Smith. Cast consists of 2M/2F. 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 long-suffering TV-producer 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 rating smash as Dolly and Isobel top both Martha Stewart and Jerry Springer!. Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script and will be held June 18 and 19 at 7 p.m. at Newnan Theatre Company. Performance dates for the show are Sep 14–24. Visit http://www.newnantheatre.org for more info.
Is it “trash or treasure” in that attic, closet or barn? Find out at a special one-day-only event this summer, brought to you by the Newnan-Coweta Historical Society. Now is the time to dig out and dust off family heirlooms or curious, eccentric pieces that may be in your homes to find out their value, history and whether items are indeed “trash or treasure!” On Saturday, July 15, 2017 from 10 a.m. til 5 p.m. at the Historic Train Depot in downtown Newnan, NCHS hosts “Trash OR Treasure -- “What’s in Your Attic?”, a first-of-its kind event for NCHS. The special event will include brief lectures on popular collection items such as art, dolls, jewelry, furniture, books, textiles, comics and toys. Appraisers and specialists deliver the talks, give background information and reveal the worth of entries submitted for appraisal.
No curious objects in the house that you need appraised? No worries! A $5 ticket is available for those who would like to attend the event without submitting an entry. Spend as much time as you like perusing the items submitted, catching lecture sessions or networking with fellow collectors. Enjoy delicious offerings available for purchase from food vendors at the event. Non-entry tickets will be available up to and throughout the day of the event. Starting at 10 a.m. on July 15, about every half hour antiques specialists will present an engaging 15 to 20 minute “talk” on various collectibles with time for questions from the audience. A schedule of the “talks” about collectibles will be posted prior to the event on the event Facebook page and on the NCHS website. NCHS hopes that entrants and ticket holders will make this a day of fun, learning and networking with other collectors. Food vendors will be available onsite for lunch or refreshment. All proceeds from Trash OR Treasure goes toward NCHS sponsored programs being held monthly at the McRitchie-Hollis Museum, the Historic Train Depot and other locations in and around downtown Newnan. The idea to introduce a “Antiques Roadhouse” (the popular TV series) type event in Newnan is the inspiration of NCHS board member Ginny Lyles. Lyles while going through items from her childhood home became enthralled with the history, and yes, value, with so many of the items, some family heirlooms, that she was discovering. When talking with another NCHS board member, President Lisa Harwell, about the items, the idea was born to have a fundraiser for NCHS that encouraged others to bring in their collectibles, artifacts and other items of interest to discover their origin and value.
Those submitting items for review and appraisal must do so before the July 1 deadline for entries. Purchase tickets through the NCHS website, the event Facebook page or by visiting Eventbrite.com. One item may be submitted for every entry ticket purchased at $25. There is no limit on the number of entry tickets. Once an entry is submitted, a form is sent to the entrant for completion. The form requires a photo, description and any known information about the item(s) being submitted. Entrants will physically bring items to the event being held at the Historic Train Depot located at 60 E. Broad St, Newnan, GA, on the day of the event, July 15. NCHS hopes to have about 75 entries for appraisal. The value of entry items is revealed the day of the event, July 15, 2017 at the Historic Train Depot.
Historian, local author and NCHS Executive Director Jeff Bishop says, “Coweta County has a rich and multi-layered background with folks from all walks of life, many who come from families that have been in the area for multiple generations. Inevitably there are items that have passed down among the family lines to those who may not know the history or value of the items they now own. This is an unique opportunity to learn about such items.” Lyles adds, “No item is too big -- as long as it can be brought to the Depot, or small, too expensive or too inconsequential. Cowetans have items that are meaningful, but may not have a high value and items that may have significant value, but not much meaning. This event is for everyone’s participation and enjoyment.” Entry tickets are $25 for every item entered with a July 1 deadline and can be purchased at www.eventbrite.com, or by link from the NCHS webpage, the Trash OR Treasure Facebook page, by calling 770251-0207 or by visiting the NCHS headquarters at the McRitchie-Hollis Museum, 74 Jackson St, Newnan, GA 30263. Non-entry tickets available for just $5.

PAPER | 17
Newnan’s Goodwill Ambassador I am so excited at the opportunity I have been given by John Winters to share what is nothing less than a rare treasure and the best kept secret in all of Georgia. Each month I shall be sharing one of the many treasures of the Courthouse Square in Mr. Winters’ new publication, “The Paper.” Thanks to Ryan O Neal at WQEE 99.1 FM. I shall be doing the same thing on the radio each Thursday at 9:30 a.m. It will be Newnan’s “Goodwill Ambassador Radio Show.” On June 1st I was on the radio talking about the amazing Market Day that is displayed on the Courthouse Square the first Saturday of every month. A lot of very nice people with lots of talent set up their tents and display their wares. If you can think it, they have it. Anything from goat milk soap to local honey and wooden ink pens and much more, much, much more. I think the best part off Market Day is the people themselves. The vendors and shoppers all make for a positive, fun-filled conversation and amazing experiences. You have the smell of caramel popcorn and fried donut holes permeating the air adding a bit of circus atmosphere to the whole thing. I am devoted to truly become Newnan’s Goodwill Ambassador, I shall do all that I can to promote the Courthouse Square and all the many unique places and stores, each with their own ambiance and personality. Every place from Let Them Eat Toffee to Leaf & Bean and the Carnegie Library, just to name a few, I will be bringing attention to all these rare, amazing treasures and the amazing people behind them. My intention is to let everyone know just how awesome and amazing the Courthouse Square truly is from one end of town to the other - including the Greenville Street Park. My main desire is to see a large mass of people from out of town walking alongside people from intown with their cameras every day of the week. I would love to see all the young and old musicians playing and practicing all over the Courthouse Square. Too many times I had people tell me, oh I never go to the Courthouse Square! I want these people to know just what they are missing, a real treat of a lifetime, an opportunity to preserve a unique historical monument. I hope your kids and grandkids and great grandkids will be able to enjoy this wonderful place called the Courthouse Square. Please help me get the word out and hand a friend a free copy of “The Paper” and tell them to read the Newnan Goodwill Ambassador column. Until next month. Love, Mr. Personality.

The Film Fix with Jonathan W. Hickman Streaming Selects “Will & Grace” Returns to NBC Everything old is new again. With rebirths of old shows like “The X-Files” and even “Roseanne,” network television is turning to old titles in order to compete with streaming platforms. Of course, the streamers have stolen old shows and rebooted them with a certain level of success. Needless to say, the risk adverse environment that would rather trade on a former brand instead of creating something new and innovative is bound to produce some utterly boring content. It’s been there, done that.
will reportedly be based on just three days in lock-up as guards investigate where the gun came from during the riot of last season. All or Nothing: A Season with the Los Angeles Rams (Amazon Prime)
Amazon Studios’ collaboration with NFL Films last year on “All or Nothing: A Season with the Arizona Cardinals” proved to be a winner on the Prime streaming service. The follow-up is streaming now and tracks the Rams as the team hires a new head coach, Sean McVay, and struggles to adjust to their new home. But after watching the 5-plus minute musical trailer for the new season of the popular and groundbreaking 1990s sitcom “Will & Grace,” I’m hopeful that we’ll get insightful laughs that aren’t merely recycled. The whole gang is back and they are in on the joke—they’re older and still as dysfunctional. But they look terrific in their late 40s and 50s. While Debra Messing has been recently on network programming, Eric McCormack has found some success with the Netflix original “Travelers,” which was renewed earlier this year for season 2. Megan Mullally, the eldest of the group, really looks fabulous, appearing slimmer but still as saucy as ever complete with a instantly appearing martini in hand. And everyone’s favorite openly gay next door neighbor, Sean Hayes is still on the prowl for hot guys. Things appear to have changed very little since the show wrapped in 2006 after 8 seasons.
CW’s “Riverdale” Renewed for Season 2 Okay, the announcement that this unique take on the classic “Archie” comics was coming back for a second season was announced in March, so, I’m late to the party on this one. With the CW having shot the pilot for the upcoming “Insatiable” at the Newnan courthouse in March, local readers should be familiar with the network that has found success with shows like “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,” “Gossip Girl,” “The Vampire Diaries” and, of course, “The Flash.” My daughter couldn’t live without “Jane the Virgin” for a time, so, young people have gone all in for the CW.
Based on Neil Gaiman’s award-winning novel, Starz has captured the imagination of the comic book crowd and then some. This adult focused fantasy involves the evolution of Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle in a star-making role), an ex-con released from prison early due to the death of his wife and best friend.
Once on the outside, he discovers that his ex (played in fantastical fashion by Emily Browning) may have been having an affair with his best friend when the two passed away in a car crash. Floating and aimless, Shadow encounters Mr. Wednesday (Ian McShane), who hires him as a personal bodyguard. Wednesday is a mysterious, odd sort of man who inhabits some kind of murky, dangerous, supernatural world. But because Shadow has given up on his life, he takes each and every strange occurrence in stride, but, also, playing the straight-man that helps us ease into the unusual state of things. “American Gods” is like nothing on television at the present time. It’s sexy in a “Game of Thrones” sort of way, but, at the same time, thought-provoking as it engages viewers to think about the hereafter.
Theatrical Teasers “Wonder Woman” (June 2)
Look for new episodes of “Will & Grace” on NBC this Fall. “Orange is the New Black” - Season 5 (Netﬂix June 9th) Hackers may have tried to spoil the new season of Netflix’ edgy female-driven prison drama, but many of us, including this writer, will by-pass the illegal viewing options and take in the show in the now traditional way—streaming it from Netflix. As the show searches for ways to retain its audience, this season
“American Gods” Tells Its Mythic Tale (Starz Sundays 9PM)
I caught an episode of “Riverdale” on the CW website, where several are freely available. Even though I dumped myself headlong into the middle of season one, I got into this teen “urban Greek tragedy.” Obviously darker and more angst ridden than the comics that inspired it, the show has a lush noir look and an appropriately overly dramatic soapy feeling to it on a guilty pleasure level (think the late Wes Craven’s stylized “Scream” franchise). The casting is clearly in on the joke featuring the likes of TV veterans Luke Perry and Robin Givens in prominent supporting roles. To catch up with the entire series, episodes can be purchased online at Amazon and VUDU.
Director Zack Snyder thankfully takes a break and hands “Wonder Woman” over to “Monster” director Patty Jenkins, who will attempt to rescue the flagging Warner Bros. DC cinematic universe from another critical dud. And even though “Suicide Squad” was successful at the box office, it would be hard to call it a bone fide hit. Consistent with the launch of the character in the critical disaster that was “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” actress Gal Gadot returns to the Amazon princess title role this time in
_______________________________________________________________________________________ her own stand-alone adventure. With this DC entry, we should get something like the first Captain America film and less like Snyder’s video game “Batman v. Superman” visuals and his hammy, overly serious handling of comic book material. The trailers for “Wonder Woman” tease a potentially strong WWII story as meta-human Diana Prince (WW’s alter ego) of the Amazons leaves the sheltered safe haven of her island and ventures into the outside world. With the guidance of American pilot Steve Trevor (Chris Pine), Diana naturally gets entangled in the world conflict in an attempt to repel German hegemony. Expect a nostalgic romp to set-up with extra goodwill the “Justice League” film, helmed by Snyder, coming to theaters in a big way in November.
Arthouse Corner “Wakeﬁeld” - Review (Landmark Midtown Art Cinema - June 16) It pays to be clever, but extending a clever idea over the course of a feature film is hard to do. Writer/Director Robin Swicord (“The Jane Austen Book Club”) spins a captivating yarn early in “Wakefield” only to see the idea or central gimmick of the film sour in its last third. The story has Howard Wakefield (Bryan Cranston), a lawyer living in a suburb of New York, withdrawing from his rather ordinary life and taking up refuge in the attic of his garage. The key to his withdrawal is that he does this with no notice and seemingly disappears. This leaves his wife, Diana (Jennifer Garner) and two kids in the dark. Where’s Daddy? Howard manages to stay hidden away in the attic for something like a year, all without his family and friends knowing. Right, the whole thing is terribly contrived, but the early stages of his escape builds in an interesting and credible way. Through Howard’s eyes we’re able to spy on Diana as she grapples with the mystery and eventually moves on. Since the focus is solely on Howard, the viewer gets as worn down as he does. The effect is that the monotonous closing third of the film is boring and frustrating. Howard’s motivations are selfish, which makes him a fairly unappealing character who essentially does nothing but lay around in an attic and dig in garbage bins for food and supplies.

PAPER Real Estate Jess Barron
New Construction Homes in Coweta County The real estate market in Coweta County is booming! New construction is a positive sign that the local economy is healthy and Coweta is loaded with new homes right now. There are currently 212 new single family detached homes for sale (per GAMLS on 5.30.17) that were built, in 2017, or being constructed. New construction prices range from $139,000, in Belmont Park (Newnan), to $797,000, in Arbor Springs (Newnan). There is new construction being built in established neighborhoods like Arbor Springs, Lake Redwine, Madison Park, Northgate Preserve and Savannah Woods. Newer developments like Newnan Cotton Mill, are also coming along with new homes. The Gordon Rd area, with new construction in developments like Kindlewood and Gordon Estates, has seen a significant amount of activity. Senoia is a very hot area right now also. There is new construction, in the following subdivisions, just to name a few: Fieldstone, Fox Hall, Heritage Pointe. These homes range from the mid $200,000’s to the low $400,000’s. When buying new construction, it is important to lean on your agent and the builder’s agent for
guidance. The agents Jess Barron is an Associate Broker will know the process with Lindseys, Inc. Realtors and President-Elect of the Newnanfor new construction, Coweta Board of Realtors. as it is very different transaction than a resale of a home. Most builders will offer pre and post-closing walkthroughs on your new home. Most builders will offer a warranty on the home. Some builders will offer incentives like paying your closJess Barron ing costs. I have even seen trips and cruises offered, by builders, in some neighborhoods. These are things you certainly want to check for. You can expect a new home to take three to six months, from start to finish, to be completed.

Cranston is fine in the role, but the script lacks joy and humor giving him little to do but pine away and generally act miserable. “Wakefield” is a interesting experiment. It’s a short film masquerading as a feature.

Coweta Community Foundation now accepting applications for 2017-2018 Community Service Team 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 recently awarded their second grant, this time to the Coweta Organization for Riding, Rehabilitation and Learning (CORRAL). Now, the group is once again opening its application process to new members. The objectives of the Community Service Team are to: • Build awareness of local nonprofits among high school students. • Provide an opportunity for active participation in local nonprofit organizations. • Train young teens to serve as auxiliary board members of local nonprofits during their junior and senior years. • Bring new ideas and youthful energy to local nonprofit agencies.
• Provide an opportunity for the team to research and select one local nonprofit to receive a grant for a special project or program. Membership will be determined through an application and interview process among high school students. Students will attend no fewer than five monthly meetings during which they will be introduced to the various nonprofit organizations serving Coweta citizens. The students will also participate in two workdays with a nonprofit agency. This could include working at the nonprofit, attending a board meeting or a tour. In addition, the team will also participate in two volunteer events for The Foundation, which will also include working with nonprofit agencies. The first meeting will be the parent and team member welcome meeting on September 19, 2017, at 6:30 p.m. at Central Educational Center. 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 will be awarded a $500 scholarship from the Coweta Community Foundation. Leading the program are Foundation board members Cynthia Bennett, a retired Coweta County educator, and Deidre Bembry, a local State Farm insur-
ance agent.
