Are you considering moving to an assisted living community?

Why not Monarch House.

Even during the pandemic, the unique construction of Monarch House and its features allowed our residents to really never stop living the ‘senior life!’ A Letter from the Owner of Monarch House Assisted Living Monarch House has been coping with the COVID-19 virus by not only protecting our residents but also maintaining an active social program specifically aimed at keeping our seniors connected with each other and their families. With only 41 resident suites and over 25,000 sq.ft. of community space, it was that huge area of community space which allowed our residents to continue with the variety of daily activities during the pandemic allowing for social engagement that is so vital to the health of our Monarch House family. Our residents were able to use the many features of that community space – a 1950s vintage drug store diner, an intimate bar lounge, a salon, a library and rooftop patio gardens that surround a huge Solarium where residents nurture flowers, herbs & seasonal vegetables. Even with the COVID restrictions, our small family of seniors has continued to live life to the fullest ... in fact we never stopped. Our residents enjoyed ice cream socials, daily exercise classes set to music, pinball, skeeball, billards, daily matinee and evening movies in our theater with its huge screen, entertainers including singing groups, magic shows, art projects directed by local creative artists and literary readings by none other than author T.M. Brown. All of this has been an enormous benefit in keeping our residents engaged and it shows. And here it is in mid-May and family members are again welcome to spend time with their parents & grandparents in a safe environment that restores these vital connections. I am so very thankful that we have an outstanding staff of caregivers that have huge hearts and give loving attention to each and every one of our residents. Our Activities Director Dez Ross has boundless energy with a heart that is bursting with love for all of our seniors. Kaci Fowler is our resident nurse that attends to the individual health care needs of everyone. And overseeing all of this is our Executive Director Andy Brown. I jokingly like to say that I must be a genius to have brought Andy on in this important position. Andy always gives extra attention to the welfare of our residents and staff, and it shows. Thanks to all of you for your dedication to our Monarch House family!

While attempting to balance physical health and safety with emotional health was not easy during these unprecedented times, the Monarch House did just that! Thank you for providing my Mother (Lottie) with a healthier more fulfilling life in a family-like atmosphere.

– Tammy Worsham

Vic Young

But, don’t take my word for any of this. Check out some of our family testimonials.

We rest easy knowing that Dad is in such a clean, cheerful environment where his safety and well-being always comes first.  Monarch House has given us our lives back and has given Dad (Ray) an opportunity to flourish among folks his age. Thanks – Jenny Baker Monarch House.

Thank you to the Monarch House administration and staff for making the very best of the virus crisis we’ve all lived through the past 14 months. You have done a great job following government guidelines, while at the same time remembering our family members are human beings with individual needs. All the extra activities to keep the residents engaged helped to keep them healthy and happy. Posting on FaceBook helped me feel in touch almost daily. The rooftop lounge, greenhouse and garden really helped Mom (Carolyn) not feel so restricted. We love and appreciate you, every day! – Diane and our extended family

Notes from Jackson Street

John A. Winters, Publisher, Editor john@wintersmedia.net Joseph E. Williams, Publisher Emeritus j.e.williams3605@gmail.com Corby Carlin Winters, Marketing/Public Relations corby@wintersmedia.net

(Originally published 2002) Dear Caleb: It seems like yesterday that I was out fly fishing on an Alaskan river near our home when your mom called and said it was time to go to the hospital. I helped deliver you and have to say you were smaller than the salmon I caught a few hours earlier. But that was four years ago. And now, as you constantly remind me, you have just celebrated your fourth birthday. You are growing up so quickly – too quickly. Already you’ve developed your own personality and your favorite things. Like the Power Pants you always want to wear or the Spiderman underwear. You’re also into Superman on certain days. And if I may be so bold, let me suggest that you always be careful of whom you pick for heroes. It’s easy to pick the big athlete or the superhero, but remember they put their pants on one leg at a time like you’re learning to do. While the world may idolize them, they are human. It’s alright to have heroes, just make sure they have the same values as you should. I want you to know how much I love our time together. I cherish every minute, even when I say I am tired and really don’t want to play swords anymore. Especially with all your rules – like I have to stay still while you come charging at me full speed and whack me on the ankle; and I can’t fight back. I’m thankful that as you’ve grown up, you’ve gone along with my various sporting activities. You never whined while I put you on my back and took you fly fishing. Even when I snagged your ear with a fly, you didn’t tell the Little Black Dress. Or the time I took you along while I played golf and you rode in the cart. At least you did until we hit that turn and you stood up and went flying out. Again, thanks for not telling The Dress. There are just some things that should be kept between a father and son. I want to pass along some things that I hope you’ll take to heart. Find a sport you love and one you can play the rest of your life. You’ll make lifelong friends who share your passion. It doesn’t matter if you are the best, just do your best and remember that tomorrow you can go out and try again if you had an off day. Never settle for second-best; be it a job, grades, friends, sports or whatever. In everything you do, do your best and be satisfied with a job well done. Never be afraid to say you don’t know how to do something or don’t know the answer. Ask and learn. Be willing to “sign your name.” Save 10 percent of everything you make, give away 10 percent and live on the remainder: you will be rich for life – and not just in a monetary way. Keep on asking questions like you do now, even when it seems I get exasperated because I can’t tell you exactly why the sky is blue or what blue really is. Make friends with people who will hold you accountable for your actions. Remember that a true man is one who takes responsibility for what he does, regardless of the outcome. Be passionate about everything you do and make sure you enjoy what you do – whether it be sports or a job or just life itself. Never give up learning. Finally, make sure you marry a woman like your mom, and you will never go wrong. Love you, my eldest Son of Thunder. Dad UPDATE: Caleb just celebrated his 23rd birthday. He was graduated from Mercer University with a double major and a minor. He achieved the highest academic rank possible - Summa Cum Laude. He also was named a Distinguished Military Graduate and was commissioned as a 2Lt. in the U.S. Army, armor division. All in one weekend. So far, it seems he’s following my advice pretty well. Until next time.

Seniors can get help with home repairs, safety modifications As their physical abilities decline with age, seniors will often require home repairs or modifications to ensure their safety and make life easier. Financial limitations can make these repairs out of reach for some elderly adults, so several local organizations have stepped in to provide a helping hand. RiverLife “We work year-round to identify people who have needs at their home like wheelchair ramps, minor home repairs and some modifications,” said Melanie Reeves, executive director of RiverLife, a nonprofit organization in Newnan that assists with critical home repair projects. RiverLife helps local residents with exterior home repairs such as fixing unsteady steps or installing handrails and interior modifications such as adding grab bars in the bathroom. Residents can also get help with yard clean-up if they have physical or financial challenges. The nonprofit organization, which relies on the assistance of volunteers, is unable to assist with roofing, plumbing and electrical needs, but can make referrals. RiverLife receives client recommendations from other nonprofits, but local residents can also contact RiverLife directly to apply for home repair or home modification assistance. To qualify, applicants must be homeowners. When RiverLife receives the homeowner’s application, a staff member will make a site visit to determine home repair or yard maintenance needs. Services are available to people of all ages. To ensure all of the homeowner’s needs are met, such as food or transportation, RiverLife will contact other nonprofits for assistance. “We are so blessed to be in this community where the nonprofits work so closely with one another,” Reeves said. RiverLife also offers emotional and spiritual support to seniors. The nonprofit has partnered with a student-led organization for the Heartwise Project.

Students are paired with senior adults or individuals who are isolated and will call them weekly to serve as a companion. RiverLife also stays in touch with clients and provides items such as holiday gifts to homebound seniors or those who are isolated and lack support. After working for nearly 20 years in church ministry, Reeves and her husband founded RiverLife in 2015 because they wanted to continue serving their community. To afford building materials, RiverLife raises money and occasionally receives funding for projects from volunteer groups. To complete the application for home repair or home modification assistance, visit https://livetheriverlife. com/. For questions about the home repair program or to participate in the Heartwise Project, call RiverLife at 678-796-8840. Newnan-Coweta Habitat for Humanity Newnan-Coweta Habitat for Humanity offers the Brush with Kindness Home Repair Program to help current Coweta County residents with beautification, weatherization and critical repairs. Applicants must meet certain requirements, including having lived at the residence for at least the past year, using the home as their primary residence (i.e., not an investment property or vacation home), being in good standing with their mortgage lender, having no liens or judgments on the property, having active homeowner’s insurance on the property, qualifying for U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) income limits and repaying a portion of the construction costs based on income.

Credit and debt ratios are evaluated as part of the process. To meet the income requirements, applicants must fall between the minimum and maximum income amounts on the HUD income grid based on the household size. Sample beautification repairs include power washing exterior siding of the house, minor repairs to porches, building handicap accessible ramps, filling in cracks in concrete and masonry and landscaping. Possible weatherization repairs include sealing cracks, gaps and holes in areas with high potential for heat loss, replacing broken window glass and installing storm doors and windows. Critical home repairs that are available include faulty electrical wiring that poses a fire hazard, installing water heaters that comply with building codes, roof repair and replacement, and floor and wall repair and replacement. Most of the program’s labor is completed by volunteers. To complete the inquiry form for the Brush with Kindness Home Repair Program or to review further information, visit www.nchfh.org and look under the Programs & Resources tab for this program. For further questions, call 770-252-9049, Ext. 210. Three Rivers Area Agency on Aging Three Rivers Area Agency on Aging serves 10 counties, including Coweta County, and works to promote independence and well-being for older adults and individuals with disabilities by providing quality programs and services. The agency facilitates several programs to help seniors. The Assistive Technology program provides assistive devices to clients. These items can include shower chairs, grab bars, bedside commodes, walkers, rollators and canes, as well as telephones with large keys and extra volume and devices to help reach items on the floor. Services for this program are evaluated on a case-by-case basis. The program can also refer clients to other referral sources for further assistance. Case Management is designed to assist individuals

with complex cases. The case manager can assist with services that include fall risk assessment, budgeting or other services. In some cases, the case manager can assist the client with gaining access to adaptive equipment, or devices that are used to assist with completing activities for daily living. In addition, if a client is in a nursing home or rehab placement and meets a certain income eligibility, they can qualify for the Transitions program, which can assist with modifying a home to accommodate the needs of clients returning to their homes. Three Rivers Area Agency on Aging also offers in-home supportive services, such as personal care assistance, homemaker services and home delivered meals. These services include providing meals to homebound seniors; assistance with dressing, grooming, bathing and eating; caregiver relief services; and services to meet an individual’s social and health needs. The agency also has a resource database with over 25,000 resources, including home modification assistance, emergency financial assistance, caregiver support group information, emergency shelter and food resources, nursing home or personal care home information, hospice programs and home health agency information. For further questions or to be considered for these programs, call 1-866-854-5652. United States Dept. of Agriculture (USDA) To assist with home repairs, the USDA Newnan SubArea Office offers low-cost loans and grants to seniors who own their own homes. Clients must live in the area the USDA serves. Senior adults who are younger than 62 can apply for the loan, and seniors older than 62 are eligible to apply for the grant. To receive the 504 Single Family Housing Loan or Grant, clients must complete an application and meet certain eligibility guidelines. For more information, contact the USDA Newnan Sub-Area Office at 770-253-2555.

Lumber Prices Soar!

Take our online survey at

The current real estate market is the most competitive that I have ever seen. It is also the most difficult for buyers.

www.bookreggielowe.com

The rising lumber prices further complicate things. In fact, lumber prices are not rising, they are soaring to new highs. A recent article in Realtor Magazine said lumber prices were up 340% from last year (March 2020 to March 2021).

“Single-family new

construction jumped

41% from March 2020

to March 2021

You would think this historic rise in lumber cost would slow the new construction market down but it has not. Single-family new construction jumped 41% from March 2020 to March 2021, according to U.S. Census Bureau data. Drywall is also up 7% yearover-year, 27% for copper (record high in March 2021) and 11% for land prices. The increase in land prices is having a positive effect in land-rich Coweta County. The lot supply is shrinking quickly in Atlanta and north Atlanta so more and more builders are coming west and south to Coweta County to build. You may not think of Coweta County having an abundance of land, but compared to more populated areas, we really do.

According to new housing data from the National Association of Homebuilders (NAH), the increase in lumber prices has added $35,872, on average, to the price of a new construction single-family home year-over-year. In Coweta County, new construction makes up about one third of homes for sale.

We have seen rising lumber prices prevent clients from selling their current home and building a new one. In one case, we had clients paying significantly more to build a smaller home and receiving much less in value for their larger current home. This move did not make sense for our clients so they decided not to build. I had other clients under contract with a prominent local builder who raised prices on their new construction homes across the board. My buyers understood and decided to move forward anyway. In the builder’s defense, he did not have much of a choice with the rising construction costs. The multifamily sector of the market has also seen a dramatic change due to lumber costs. If you have tried to lease lately, you have probably experienced increasing lease rates. The rising lumber costs have added $12,966, on average, to a new construction multifamily home. This translates to an extra $119 per month, on average, in rent for apartment dwellers, according to new housing data from the National Association of Home Builders.

SHOPPER

Kitchen with Angela

Muffins that taste like summer

For years now, I have collected tearoom cookbooks. Some focus strictly on afternoon tea, but others represent more of the old-school type of tearoom, restaurants more likely to serve a meat and three than crumpets and tea. Still, whenever I hear of a cookbook with “tearoom” in the title, I start looking for a copy. I was surprised a few years back to find that the out-of-print cookbook from the Wild Plum Tea Room in Gatlinburg was selling for more than $100 online! Not long afterward, my friend Ruth Schroeder serendipitously gave me a copy of this very cookbook for Christmas. Ruth has a son who lives in Gatlinburg, and she happened to visit the tearoom, and lo and behold, the books were back in print. On a whim, she got me one. She said she hoped I didn’t already have the book, and of course I told her how thrilled I was to receive my copy, which I definitely treasure. Whenever I travel, I love to get a copy of a local cookbook as a souvenir. It’s a fun way to remember the destination, and cookbooks are such a great peek into the culture of a local community. Because of the Wild Plum Tea Room’s name, I knew immediately that I wanted to make one of its signature treats—the famous Wild Plum Muffins. I laugh about it now, but shortly after I received the book, I was perplexed that I couldn’t find any plums in January, when I first got the urge to make these muffins. A produce manager I talked to very kindly informed me, as if he were talking to a dim child, that plums are not in season in January. So there’s that. But plums and other stone fruits are in season right now, so I thought it would be a good time to share the recipe for these delicious muffins. The original recipe made dozens of mini muffins, but I wanted full-size muffins and not too many minis, so I halved the recipe. Here’s how I made these moist little treats with a delightfully plummy taste. And all because a thoughtful friend gave me a cookbook that she had a hunch I would like!

Pickling is not Just for Cucumbers

By Candace Tucker, Family & Consumer Sciences Agent, UGA Extension Coweta County Pickles and relishes are a great way to enjoy the bountiful array of fruits and vegetables long after the summer growing season is over. That being said, pickling is not just limited to cucumbers. Peaches, green tomatoes, okra, squash and beans can also be pickled for a delightful addition to any meal. Spiced apples, muscadines, crabapples, corn, pepper and pears can be used to make relishes. Quick-process pickled fruits and vegetables are easy to make and the many flavor combinations can add a lot of variety to meals. Talent in the kitchen is not a requirement for pickling. To ensure a higher chance that pickling will be successful, follow these simple guidelines:

Many tested, safe pickle and relish recipes can be found in So Easy to Preserve, a book available for order from the University of Georgia Extension Service at setp.uga.edu. Other recipes tested at the University of Georgia can be found on the National Center for Home Food Preservation website at nchfp.uga.edu. Adapted from Elizabeth Andress, UGA Cooperative Extension. The University of Georgia College of Agricultural & Environmental Sciences is an Equal Opportunity, Affirmative Action, Veteran, Disability Institution. Photo Credit: The National Center for Home Food Preservation

Candace Tucker is the Family and Consumer Sciences (FACS) Agent for University of Georgia (UGA) Cooperative Extension Coweta County. Her role involves providing Coweta residents unbiased, researchbased information on health, nutrition, financial management, home safety and family relationships through educational programs and community outreach.

Ingredients are very important to the process of pickling. Make sure to use only high-quality, fresh fruits and vegetables. This is especially important because if you do not start with good ingredients, your product will not be as successful. Fresh, whole spices are also important in some recipes to give good flavor and prevent darkening of the pickled product.

Kathy Bohannon’s

Salt is an integral part of many pickling processes and flavor twists. Canning or pickling salt that does not contain iodine or non-caking material is ideal. Use apple cider or white distilled vinegar, but the pickles may taste best with the type recommended in the recipe. Apple cider vinegar is milder and offers a different flavor note than white distilled vinegar. Any vinegar used in University of Georgia pickling recipes should be at least five percent acetic acid. Carefully read every recipe. There is a reason for each step and cutting corners may compromise the quality of the product and/or make it unsafe to eat. Make sure that each recipe used is from a reputable source, up-to-date and kitchen-tested. Keep in mind, that any pickled products to be stored out of the refrigerator should be processed in a boiling water canner for the recommended length of time. Stainless steel, glass, or unchipped metal pans should be used when heating pickling liquids. Aluminum can be used if the brine will only be in it for a short time. Some metals such as copper and brass can react with acids or salts to create discoloration or undesirable compounds. Finally, make sure to store finished, canned pickles in a cool, dark place. This is because heat and light may reduce color and quality.

Front Porch Stories

I planned to have a garden this year …

“Planned” is the key word here, because there is no such thing as a hint of a garden happening on even a smidge of our six acres. Having a garden is important to me, mainly because of all that 2020 blessed us with, including the concerns of actually obtaining food in general. I walked an area of the backyard and decided on a spot that was just perfect where our daughter’s chickens used to live. The fertilized ground would certainly be the premiere place to plant all the things. Sadly, from a gardening aspect, I’m not outdoorsy. If I see a snake (yes, we have a “good” snake that lives on the property, but I do not want to “SEE” said snake) but if I do actually see it, I will avoid the area for at a year minimum. I’m certain that he is lying in wait to send a hiss or two my way, or to throw himself into the air and sink his teeth into whatever body part he lands on. I am sure I’d just go right ahead and have my heart attack and die on the spot. I know most of these certainties because I did see the “good” snake two years ago near our fence and I still don’t walk “over there.”

I have snake boots. I wear my snake boots on our back acreage, where ticks rule the planet. There is no such thing as tick boots, but we have some essential oils that ticks hate with a passion, so that keeps them at bay for the occasional walkabout. I must say my snake boots are pretty awesome, and once I’m in them, I’m committed. There may be no danger of snakes in the grocery store, but those boots take a lot out of me to put on and they ain’t coming off for a grocery run. Besides Mr. Slithers, there are yard monsters such as black widows, scorpions and the rumored bear or wild hog that might desire to snoop near our one-of-these-days garden, and I am positively sure they would choose to do this while I am trying to do something responsible like harvest for the winter. Still, I was determined. Ninja Man went out and made a raised bed out of whatever we had lying around. It’s quite a nice raised bed; has dirt in it and everything. And by “everything,” I mean whatever was burned in the fire pit over the last month or so. A quick Google search proved that ash is good for the garden, but only so much, and we needed to do a soil test before investing in the plants. So far, the construction of a haphazard raised bed, Google search for ash in the garden and a “plan” to get the soil tested is as far as we’ve gotten. I’m already seeing flourishing gardens on social media, so I know we missed the mark this season. Once again, to obtain our seasonal veggies, I’ll depend on the grocery store or the produce stand down the road. And if I’m shopping in snake boots, all the better. As momma always said, “I’d rather be safe than sorry.” Kathy Bohannon is a freelance writer living in Newnan with her husband, Ninja Man.

Seniors can also do the nail capillary refill test. When your nail bed is pinched, it blanches or whitens. This happens because blood is forced out. Normally blood returns in two seconds or less. If you’re dehydrated, it may take longer for the area to return to a pink shade. To perform the test :hold the testing hand above your heart. Press or pinch your nail bed until it turns white. Release the pressure. Count how many seconds it takes for color to return to your nail bed. In most cases, you can treat dehydration by simply drinking more water. The U.S. National Academies of Science, Engineering and Medicine recommend a daily intake of 15.5 cups of water for men and 11.5 cups of water for women. Remember ... not all fluids hydrate. Caffeine found in tea, coffee and soft drinks will actually contribute to your dehydration. Drinks like Gatorade and other sports drinks can aide in not only hydrating your body but can add electrolytes that may also be missing. Foods can be hydrating also. Cucumbers are 96% water. Tomatoes are 94%, watermelon and grapes are 92% water. And cantaloupe, oranges, bell peppers, blueberries and apples are all more than 84% water. This summer, be aware of your what your body is telling you. Keep up with your water intake and begin good hydration habits that will last a lifetime. Beth Dow is a Dementia and Alzheimer’s Educator, CAEd and Geriatric Care Manager. Readers can contact her at beth@solutionsbybeth.com.

Even if you have never had an issue with dehydration and are over the age of 55, you especially need to pay close attention to hydration during the summer months. Need proof? Adults aged 65-and-over have the highest hospital admission rate for dehydration. So why does your risk of dehydration increase as you age? Older adults naturally have less water in their bodies. And the rise for dehydration occurs when you add the increase of medications taken due to health conditions – such as meds for high blood pressure. As we age, folks are less sensitive to feeling thirsty. In the summer, people also sweat more, causing us to lose more moisture through our skin than in the cooler months. It’s not uncommon for a senior to lose a little over two pounds of water in an hour just doing some reasonably intense activity outside, such as yard work or exercise in 80-degree weather with some moderate humidity. Very often the symptoms of dehydration in older adults go unnoticed or could possibly be attributed to something else. Common symptoms include dry mouth, dark-colored urine or a very small amount of urine, fatigue, dizziness, muscle cramps, headaches, feeling weak or being sleepy or irritable, bad breath and constipation. The brain is 70 percent water, therefore, if the water levels are too low, brain cells cannot function properly. Seniors may also feel disoriented or cognitively impaired as a recent study out of Georgia Tech found that just two hours of dehydration can greatly affect concentration and reaction time. To check to see if you may be dehydrated you can perform the turgor or skin elasticity test. To do this, gently pinch the skin on your arm or stomach with two fingers so that it makes a “tent” shape. Then let the skin go. Check to see if the skin springs back to its normal position in one to three seconds. If the skin is slow to return to normal, you might be dehydrated.

“I enjoy listening to our senior citizens talk about their families and different experiences throughout their lives. If I can make them happy by listening, talking, giving a hug, taking care of their hair needs and going above what is required, then I know that I’m doing my job well.” It’s exceptional caregivers like Lynn and others with Home Helpers that can make a huge difference in your loved one’s life.

Hydration is essential for seniors, especially during the summer

From Newnan Utilities Press Release Following the complete renovation of Kids Castle Park and the year-long pandemic closing of the splash pad, Newnan Utilities recently invited kids young and old to visit Carl Miller Park for a re-opening celebration. To commemorate this exciting time, Newnan Utilities handed out refillable NU Recycles water bottles and coupons for free frozen treats at Whit’s Frozen Custard to children who visited the park Over the past several months, Kids Castle underwent a top to bottom remodel, complete with all-new attractions and equipment constructed from environmentally friendly materials, that are not only fun, but more easily ADA accessible for all of our friends to enjoy. The renovation includes a customdesigned outdoor play space that reflects children’s imaginations and is designed to engage families and fun for all. The new recycled rubber surfacing adds another level of safety. “We’re so excited about the transformation of Kids Castle,” said Dennis McEntire, general manager of Newnan Utilities. “That portion of Carl Miller Park was originally designed by Leathers Playgrounds in the late 1990s and constructed by the hands of community volunteers. It was truly a community effort that brought it to life, and thousands of children have enjoyed it and created memories there for over 20 years. We were lucky enough to be able to bring Leathers back to reimagine the park for today’s kids while maintaining the castle spirit that makes it so unique.” During the COVID pandemic, the park’s splash pad was closed to follow guidelines set forth by the CDC. We are pleased that we were able to re-open it, just in time for the 2021 summer break. Carl Miller Park and all of the attractions within it are open daily 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. For more information on the reopening, visit NewnanUtilities.org/park.
