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

Years ago when I ran a newspaper up in Juneau, Alaska, I had the perfect office chair. Dark green leather, brass brad trim, perfect rolling wheels, an amazing tilt - not too hot, not too cold so to speak. And of course, fit me like the proverbial glove.

Joey Howard, Digital Editor/Business Development 404.698.0734 • joey@wintersmedia.net

When I transferred to another newspaper, I tried taking that chair with me. I was greeted with a polite, but firm, “no,” from the office manager. “Furniture stays.”

Levi Winters, Social & Visual Media levi@wintersmedia.net

I know many of you tolling in offices are continuously on the search for the perfect chair, especially since we sit in them way too long. I have found a couple of replacements, but nothing ever matches that first love. Who’s with me?

Seth Winters, Ad Design sethswinters@gmail.com

But I digress. I LOVE my new office chair. The one I am sitting in now as I write this column. The one I hope is not reading over my shoulder.

Ruth Harris Doyal, Pagination 770.254.1421 • info@wintersmedia.net

My chair hunts these days are limited in scope to the month of September. It always occurs during the Kiwanis Coweta County Fair and the particular day is “Special Needs Day.”

The Shopper is published by Winters Media & Publishing, Inc., P. O. Box 757, Newnan, GA 30264

It is my favorite day of the Fair. It is any Newnan Kiwanian’s favorite day. That’s when we open the Fair for a private party for all the special needs kids and adults, their caregivers and family. Orders are simple. Go have fun. One year during my scavenger hunt I found a chair with all the bells and whistles you could imagine. It could be operated by finger, had a big battery in the back and some pretty awesome tires. Bright red if I remember. But I have forgotten how long they told me the charge lasts.

John A. Winters, President Corby Carlin Winters, Vice President The Shopper has successfully served the Coweta county area for over thirty years with our consumer-oriented guide consisting of a wide variety of retail and service advertisers, along with classified advertisements.

Our office is located at 18 Jackson St., Newnan, GA 30263 Mailing address is: P. O. Box 757, Newnan, GA 30264

Another year it was one with racing stripes. There were belts to hold the occupant in, as well as head straps and padded sides.

Office Hours: Monday, Wednesday - Friday 9 - 4.

Each year I found “the one.” Each was unique, tailored to the special person like the proverbial glove and I loved them all.

The Shopper reserves the right to accept or reject any advertising as we feel is in the best interest of our publication.

Despite their uniqueness, motorized or not, different sized batteries, belts, cushions, colors and so forth … they all had one thing in common when I snapped the photo.

770.254.1421 info@wintersmedia.net wintersmedia.net

They were empty. The kids and adults usually confined to those chairs were soaring with angels high on the Ferris wheel; captaining a pirate ship; riding a horse round and round; skiing through the Himalayan mountains; or simply holding a baby chick. Anything is possible at the Fair. Especially on that day. Like I said, it’s our club members’ favorite day. The other is when we hand out checks to local nonprofits from proceeds made during the Fair. On average, the Kiwanis Club gives back more than $150,000 each year. More than 35 local charities receive funds. If you go to the fair, ride rides, grab food or try your luck at the various games, you are also helping our local nonprofits - so thank you. Hopefully between us, the medical community and nonprofits, we can have more empty chairs.

Start early on holiday shopping to find deals, items in stock Holiday shopping is anticipated to be different this year, so consumers should start shopping early to find desired items in stock and at reasonable prices. Our 2021 holiday shopping experience is being complicated by a variety of issues, including supply chain problems, lack of inventory, labor shortages and higher prices for shipping and manufacturing, according to a report by Salesforce. These issues could affect the availability and prices of holiday food and gift items, particularly toys. Also, there might be fewer sales this year and sales will start earlier, according to CNBC. Shoppers who wait until the last minute might end up paying higher prices or be unable to find the items they want. Still, shoppers must be smart about their holiday shopping to avoid overspending and racking up debt, especially since layaway doesn’t appear to be an option this year. Here are some ways to stretch your dollars this holiday shopping season: Plan holiday menus Many treasured holiday memories are made while sharing a delicious meal. Thanksgiving and other holiday meals aren’t the same without certain staples such as turkey, cranberry sauce or sweet potato pie, so plan your holiday menus now and start stocking up on essential meal items. Canned goods and other nonperishable foods can be stored in the pantry, and turkeys or other meats can remain frozen until it’s time to cook the holiday meal. Make a shopping list in advance to ensure that you’re buying all of the necessary ingredients and to stay on track with your spending at the grocery store. Knowing the items that you want to purchase is helpful when searching for coupons and deals in weekly sales ads. Use coupons Coupons can help to save money on many items, including food, beverages, cleaning and household items, and beauty and personal care items. Several grocery stores, such as Kroger and Publix, offer digital coupons on their websites.

name items and have a comparable taste.

Kroger has started offering digital coupons that can be used up to five times in one transaction. To take advantage of these savings, customers should log into their Kroger.com account and clip these and other coupons. All digital coupons are loaded onto the customer’s Kroger Shopper’s Card, which is scanned at checkout. To save at Publix, shoppers can create a Club Publix account at Publix.com. Then, they can clip a variety of coupons to add to their account. Shoppers will enter their 10-digit phone number at checkout to receive the savings. Publix also accepts manufacturer and competitor coupons. For more information about Publix’s coupon policy, visit https://www.publix.com/ pages/policies/coupon-policy. Publix also offers BOGOs, or weekly buy-one-getone-free offers. The grocery store features at least 30 deals every week, according to its website. Major retailers such as Target, drug stores including Rite Aid and Walgreens, and discount stores such as Dollar General and Family Dollar also offer digital coupons on their websites. In addition, shoppers can clip printed coupons from sales ads found in newspapers. To maximize savings, shoppers should find out the coupon policies at stores where they shop frequently, such as whether the retailer offers store coupons, allows double or triple coupon values or accepts manufacturer’s, competitors’ and Internet coupons. Purchase store brands Most grocery stores offer a wide variety of store brands, which are often cheaper than similar brand

Get a rain check If a store runs out of a featured sale item, shoppers can request a rain check for this item at the customer service desk. This allows customers to purchase the item at the advertised sale price at a later time. Rain checks often have an expiration date, so don’t forget to take advantage of these savings before the deadline. At Publix, if an item is out of stock, the store can issue a rain check good for 30 days for up to eight units of the item at the sale price. Shoppers should visit the customer service counter to request a rain check. Shop at discount stores ALDI, a discount grocery store that is one of America’s fastest growing retailers, reports that its low prices are hard to beat. More than 90 percent of store items are ALDI-exclusive products. For nine years, ALDI has been named Value Leader among U.S. grocery stores by Market Force Information. Shoppers can also find deals on clothes, shoes, handbags, home décor and more at off-price department stores such as Marshalls and T.J. Maxx. Watch out for sales and promo codes To find deals and compare prices, shoppers need to review weekly sales ads for grocery and department stores. If customers sign up to receive emails from their favorite retailers, they can initially get a percentage off their purchase and receive discount promo codes in the future. Promo codes are also often found on retailers’ websites. From Oct. 22 to 24, Lowe’s will offer a new 10 percent discount coupon for eligible first responders in Lowe’s stores nationwide and on Lowes.com. Lowe’s is showing recognition and appreciation for the service of first responders. Firefighters, emergency medical technicians/paramedics, police officers, 911 dispatchers, nurses and physicians nationwide can register for the coupon by visiting https://www.lowes. com/firstresponders through Oct. 24. First responders

who register will receive an email with their redeemable discount for a single purchase on eligible items. For more information, visit https://corporate. lowes.com/newsroom/press-releases/lowes-thanksfirst-responders-first-ever-10-percent-discount-aheadnational-first-responders-day-09-29-21. Ask for a price match Some retail stores, such as Target, will match prices on certain items. Starting Oct. 10, if customers purchase an item in store or online and the price goes lower at Target on or before Dec. 24, they can request a price match. Proof of purchase is required. Target will match the price if a customer buys a qualifying item at Target and then finds the identical item for less at Target.com, select online competitors, or in Target’s or competitor’s local print ads. Price matches can be requested at time of purchase or within 14 days after purchase. If customers find a lower price within 14 days after purchase, they should bring in the proof to receive the price adjustment. Target store price matches and adjustments can be completed on any lane of the store. For Target.com purchases, shoppers should call Target.com Guest Services at 1-800-591-3869. For more information, visit https://help.target.com/ help/subcategoryarticle?childcat=Price+Match+Gua rantee&parentcat=Policies+%26+Guidelines&searc hQuery=search+help. Join rewards and loyalty programs Many retailers, including JC Penney and Kohl’s, have rewards programs. At JC Penney, shoppers who sign up for JC Penney Rewards will receive exclusive benefits, such as $10 rewards for points earned, birthday gifts and special offers such as coupon books. At Kohl’s, customers will receive exclusive benefits if they sign up for a Kohls.com account. The retailer also offers Kohl’s cash, in which customers earn $10 Kohl’s cash for every $50 spent. Shoppers will receive the Kohl’s cash as a coupon when they shop in store or via email when they shop at Kohls.com. Kohl’s cash must be redeemed by the date on the coupon.

Master Gardeners Rooting for Newnan

“Rooting for Newnan” By: Marci Moore, Coweta County Master Gardener Extension Volunteer (MGEV) On March 26, 2021 our City of Homes was hit by an EF-4 tornado that destroyed the beautiful tree canopy throughout much of Newnan. Two Coweta County MGEVs decided that something had to be done to help restore the beauty that once was. MGEV Ed Atkinson presented his idea to MGEV president, Donna Deitz, and with the enthusiastic support of the entire Coweta County Extension program, a tree replacement plan was born. MGEV Gary Brown submitted the winning name for the project “Rooting for Newnan”. Originally, just 200-300 trees were to be donated, but with assistance from the Georgia Forestry Commission, Newnan Utilities Compost Facility, Super-Sod & Soil3 and a team of MGEVs led by Ed Atkinson and Don Lambeck, the “Rooting for Newnan” project increased to 500 donated trees! City of Newnan Mayor Keith Brady cheered everyone on, “We need something like this, and I think there will be more of this. On behalf of the City of Newnan, thank you to every group who has done anything or will do anything to help restore our City of Homes and City of Trees. Newnan has been a Tree City USA designee for over thirty years, and we cherish that designation.” Georgia Forestry Commission Chief Forest Ranger Terry Quigley said, “The trees that were lost, our grandparents and great-grandparents saw them growing. It will take at least two generations to have these shade trees return. In twenty years, you can hang a swing in it, and in thirty years, maybe, you can build a treehouse.” The trees will be distributed on Georgia’s Arbor Day, Friday, February 18, 2022. Seth Hawkins of the Georgia Forestry Commission shared, “The swamp chestnut and cherry bark oaks tend to thrive in swampier areas, due to the oxygen content—-not necessarily the moist soil. Many of the swamp species make some of the best urban-tolerant trees. When planting a tree that will grow as large as an oak, it is important to give it plenty of room and ideally 640 square feet of open soil area. Trees should not be placed too close to the house where the roots could upheave drives or sidewalks, or where they could

grow into power lines.” He also says that the worst thing you can have is turf grass right up to the tree roots. Hawkins says that sod is like an impenetrable barrier for water to the root system. Plan on using mulch or at least keeping the area bare, and blow leaves around the tree base to add nutrients as well as protect the roots from drying out. MGEVs will assist homeowners with selecting the proper replacement tree for their space. Cherry bark and swamp chestnut oaks are the fastest growing, while the northern red oak is a tad slower growing--and the all-time favorite white 0ak is the slowest growing. The Georgia Forestry Commission donated the oaks, and the trees are a year old and two to four feet high. They will grow another six to twelve inches before planting. The rich soil for this project was a mix donated by Newnan Utilities and Super-Sod and Soil3. Super-Sod and Soil3 also provided special grow bags for the trees that will allow maximum drainage and ease of transplanting. MGEV Audrey Harrelson coordinated a team that tends and waters the trees until planting. The MGEVs are maintaining a database of those who need trees, and each household is limited to two trees. Trees may be reserved at https://bit.ly/RootingforNewnan-Coweta or for more information, call the Coweta Extension office at 770-254-2620 or email coweta.extension@uga.edu. Additionally, the Georgia Forestry Commission sells multiple varieties of small trees in packs of ten. For more information, visit gatrees.org. Every volunteer participant hopes this “Rooting for Newnan” project will build happiness and positivity in our community and will help those affected by the tornado. ■

Jerome Dunson Memorial Scholarship Dear Classmates, Some of you may not be aware that one of our own, Jerome Dunson, died on July 31, 2021. We lose more of our friends each year, and we miss them – each contributed to our class and our high school experience. Nevertheless, Jerome’s passing struck us especially hard. He was not only a great athlete, friend, and person; Jerome was also a pioneer, a trailblazer and a peacemaker. No doubt you remember the turbulent times of the late 60s. Integration was a new and challenging frontier. Many of us believe that Jerome was a major reason there was no violence and very little trouble at Newnan High School during this time; he became the face of integration for us. Other classmates, including Greg Grier, Loretta Sims, Ray Ward, Ann Tucker, Alvin Williams, also made this first step. Jerome’s contributions within Newnan High School paralleled Henry Selden’s immense contribution to a peaceful integration transition throughout the community. Jerome’s skills on the field and court made him well known, and his personality, charm, and attitude made him a friend to all who knew him. Placed in the spotlight at Newnan High School, his life, attitude, and many contributions made our transition to integration seamless. Our class selected him as a Senior Superlative, and he was Most Valuable Player on the basketball team and Captain and Best Defensive Back on the football team. In fact, Jerome was honored with the national award for high schoolers from the 100% Wrong Club for his contribution to race relations. With this legacy in mind, a group of Jerome’s classmates have decided to initiate a scholarship to honor him and his family (wife, Brenda; son, Jerome, Jr.; and daughter, Jahan). The Jerome Dunson Memorial Scholarship will be awarded annually at the Newnan High School Honors Night to a graduating senior at Newnan High School who exhibits the exemplary traits demonstrated by Jerome: athletic ability, above-average grades, high regard of his peers, significant contributions to the school through extracurricular activities, class leadership, and community involvement. The Newnan High School Faculty will select the individual who, because of these traits, has made a difference in school, community, and classmates’ lives. We hope the award will become a highlight of Newnan High’s ceremony. The Coweta Sports Hall of Fame, a 501(c)(3) tax deductible organization, which recognized Jerome in 2017, will administer this annual scholarship. We invite you to honor Jerome with a contribution to this memorial scholarship and to make it possible for other similarly worthy students attend college or vocational school. Honoring this beloved classmate will lift up his example and nurture his legacy of community.

I read something the other day that gave me pause. I think it was on social media, so naturally, I can’t recall the source, but it said this: “Impossible is just an opinion.” What do you think about that? I like it. When I was a teenager, bedroom wall posters with clever sayings were the equivalent of today’s Facebook memes, and one of my favorite posters said, “The one who says it can’t be done should never interrupt the one who is doing it.” Today’s updated version making the rounds on social media says this: “When someone says you can’t do it, do it twice and take pictures.” What’s all that got to do with a recipe, you ask? Well, my point is that sometimes, we like to think that we’re doing something we’ve been told is “impossible.” In the old cookbooks I’ve collected over the years, I’ve noticed that “Magic” this and “Impossible” that are favorite adjectives in the titles of recipes. And this Impossible Pie is one that I have enjoyed making. According to foodtimeline.org, a great source for food history, “The origins of Impossible Pie (aka mystery pie, coconut amazing pie) are sketchy at best. A survey of newspaper/magazine articles suggests this recipe originated in the South (where coconut custard pies are popular). It was discovered by General Mills (Bisquick) and General Foods, who capitalized on the opportunity to promote their products. Corporate recipes surfaced in the mid-1970s. There are conflicting reports about the dates of introduction. The earliest recipe we have on file was published in 1968.” Another article I read said the recipe gets its name because it is “impossibly easy” to make. What’s so great about this particular pie recipe is that you don’t have to make a separate piecrust, and you can mix everything at one time in the blender (or using an electric mixer; I suspect the blender was the gadget favored by sixties-era cooks). The first time I made this pie, I was skeptical about it turning out well, so I was absolutely delighted to slice into it and find that it set, cut and tasted just perfect. For someone like me who doesn’t enjoy making piecrusts, this pie recipe is definitely a great one to have on hand. If you are piecrust-challenged, too, be sure to add this Impossible Pie to your recipe box. And when it turns out especially tasty and pretty, make it twice and take pictures!

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prepare a 10-inch pie pan with cooking spray. Combine all ingredients in blender (or bowl of an electric mixer) and blend for 3 minutes. Pour mixture into pie pan and bake for 1 hour. Like magic, the pie will have formed a crust, a middle layer of custard, and coconut on top. Brilliant—and more than possible!

Buying and Selling Land in Georgia With fall here, I thought I would write about buying and selling land in Georgia. Fall is often regarded as the best time to sell land and acreage. The temperatures are cooler, it is easier to see the entire property with the leaves falling and there are less bugs and snakes. The process of buying and selling land is completely different than a residential transaction. The list price for land and acreage is typically calculated at a price per acre. The value for the land is determined by factors such as location, topography, water features, quality of soil, timber value, road frontage, internal road systems, structures and/or improvements, uses for the land, comparable sales, etc. It is very important to have a quality survey of the property when selling or buying land. You need to know exactly what you are selling or buying. When a property’s value is calculated on a per acre basis, a small difference in acreage can make a huge impact on a sales price. If a survey is not provided, you can ask the seller to provide one or have someone complete a survey for you. Newnan and Coweta County have a great group of local surveyors. I would not recommend buying or selling a property without a survey as there can be disputes about boundaries and encroachments from adjacent properties. Sellers often will cut the timber off a property before selling it to cash in on the value of the timber. I would not recommend this as cutting the timber leaves the land looking barren and rough. You want to dress up acreage, like you would a house or car before selling it. This can be as simple as bushogging a field or as complicated as adding a pond to make the property more desirable. Thinning is a good idea to help a land tract show better. Thinning is the calculated removal of certain trees with a specific objective in mind (gfc.state.ga.us). This process is beneficial to the overall health of trees on the property also. For Real Estate column continued on page 11

October: ‘Talk about your Medicines Month’ The National Council on Patient Information and Education (NCPIE) created Talk About Your Medicines Month in 1986. It was meant to bring attention to the value of improved medicine communication while promoting both better medicine use and health outcomes. According to a CDC study in 2016, 90 percent of all US residents aged 65+ take at least one prescription pill per month. A similar study found that while those 65 and older only make up 13.7 percent of the population, they use 40 percent of all prescribed drugs with an average of 14 prescriptions per year per person. When you take into account that a Kaiser Family Foundation report found that most Americans do not take their drugs as prescribed, then it is no wonder that the 2nd highest reason for trips to the ER, in those over 65, is due to medication mismanagement. (The No. 1 reason for visits to the ER is falls.) Seniors may have trouble taking their medications correctly for a few reasons. There may be confusion surrounding what is prescribed, number of doses, and timing. Or they may not perceive their illness to be severe or threatening and therefore are not as diligent in taking their medication as they should be. Many people believe that it is their doctors who are the ones that will help them monitor their medications and be available to answer any questions; when in fact, it is your pharmacist. It is recommended that at least once a year, you take a list of all your medications and any over the counter supplements to your pharmacist. Ask if there are any medications that may be causing a drug-on-drug or food-on-drug interaction. Ask if any appear to be duplicates or partial duplicates of other medications and if you can possibly reduce the number of your medications. And ask when and how you should be taking each medication to

ensure it’s effectiveness. If you are taking more than five medications; if you take medication more than once a day; if you have missed a medication dose in the last six months; if you do not have anyone helping monitor your medications; or if you have made an ER visit in the last year ... you are at risk for a medication error that could have very negative consequences. There are things you can do. First, make that visit with your pharmacist to go over your medications. While there, you may want to look into medication “blister packs”. This is where your pharmacist prepacks your medications so you are not opening bottles and organizing your medications on your own. You just open one packet and take the medications that are needed. You may also want to look into automatic medication dispensers. These are filled once a month or once a week, depending on the number of times a day medications are needed. It is timed to “alarm” when it is time to take your medication. Ensuring that you are not only taking the right medication but that you are always taking your medication on time. Make October the month you take control of your meds and control of your life! Beth Dow is a Dementia and Alzheimer’s Educator, CAEd and Geriatric Care Manager.

Real Estate column continued from page 11 example, thinning an area of dead or diseased trees will allow a property to show better. The Georgia Forestry Commission is a great resource for questions about timber. If you plan to build a home or structure on some land, I would highly recommend having a soil or “perc test” completed during a due diligence period. Percolation tests measure the water absorption rate of soil. This will help to determine if you can put a septic tank and drain field on the property. The Coweta County Health Department can provide perc tests, as well as local soil scientists. It is not a bad idea to have a soil test, along with a topographic report, completed before you list a property so the

prospective buyers know where they can build a home. A topographic report is a detailed map of the surface features of the land. This includes mountains, hills, creeks, valleys, etc. on a particular property. I hope you are able to enjoy being outside this fall. Walking and showing land is one of my favorite parts of my job!

Note that all wasp, hornet and yellow jacket colonies will die off in the winter and will not reuse the same nest the following year. In most situations, the best option is to leave them alone if you can simply avoid going near the nest for a few more months. If you don’t know where the nest is located, don’t go looking for trouble.

Q. What can I spray to get rid of the insects on my back porch at night?

A.

It may be time for fall, but the weather outside feels more like late summer, and many types of insects are buzzing around homes and late gardens. As we approach fall weather, the local populations of many types of insects like yellow jackets, hornets, moths and various beetles reach their peak, and they come out in full force around doors and windows of our homes, especially at night. Spraying your home for these flying insects is probably the least effective way to deal with the problem though. If you’re lucky, you might kill a few on any given night with an aerosol spray, but hundreds more of their closest cousins will fly back the next night. The nests of yellow jackets and hornets are probably a safe distance from your home. As a general rule, yellow jackets tend to nest in the ground, usually occupying old, decayed stump holes. These underground nests are often encountered when someone mows their lawn or passes a weed trimmer too close to their entrance hole. Bald-faced hornets construct aerial nests that hang from tree branches. European hornets typically build nests in hollow trees, barns, sheds,

Many insects are attracted to bright exterior lighting or light shining through windows in homes and may beat into the glass with quite a lot of force. This causes some people to panic, thinking they are trying to break the glass to attack them — which is not true. Hornets and wasps tend to hover incessantly around porches and doorways that have nearby flood lights. Of course, the simplest solution is to keep exterior lights turned off. When you Bugs swarming around a lightbulb at night. do use exterior lights, don’t leave them on for extended periods of time. Soft, yellow lights are the least attractive to most insects. Even LED light that is filtered to be yellow or amber in color attracts fewer of the flying insects. Some are sold as “bug lights” intended to make porch lights less attractive to nuisance insects like May and June beetles. A recent study from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) and the Smithsonian Institution found that blue and ultraviolet lights create other problems for insects and humans beyond their nuisance aspect. Artificial lights can alter normal insect behaviors, interfering with their ability to navigate at night, and has been linked to the decline of insect populations and species diversity on a larger scale. Changing your porch light or keeping exterior lights turned off is something you should encourage your friends and neighbors to do and ultimately has the least impact on nature. So, instead of buying another can of wasp and hornet spray, consider changing your light bulb. After all, most insects are beneficial if we can learn how to live with them.

Front Porch Stories Whippoorwill

There was a time when I considered the whippoorwill outside of my window was indeed, my whippoorwill. His song would lull me to sleep and it became part of my nightly routine. I didn’t know much about things like whippoorwills before I married, so it was interesting to hear my husband relay all the facts about the bird when he realized how much I enjoyed listening to its song. The whippoorwill began singing near my window when we lived in Moreland. It was in the early 1980s, and that bird sang every single night until he migrated for the winter. At some point I would almost forget about him, and then his night song would remind me how long it had been since I heard his call. A few things happened with “my” whippoorwill. First of all, it wasn’t mine at all, but my husband and I adopted the idea that the bird was there each night to sing me to sleep. It was 1998 when we left that home in the woods of Moreland and moved to a neighborhood near Savannah. Though our move was in June, I didn’t hear the first whippoorwill. It was difficult to sleep at all. On one glorious evening the following spring, I was getting ready for bed when I heard him. “Whip-poor-will! Whip-POOR-WILLL!” I was so delighted that I woke up my husband.

Senoia Area Blood Drive on November 1st

A critical blood drive is scheduled for November 1st at the Senoia United Methodist Church from 1 to 5 p.m. This blood drive is cosponsored by the local church and the Optimist Club of Senoia. If you are unable to give, you are encouraged to notify others who may be able to donate. Due to an emergency blood and platelet shortage, donors are strongly urged to give now to help ensure lifesaving blood products are available for patients. Donors are asked to enter the front door of the sanctuary where they can sign-in and wait while social distancing. (Signs will point the way.) You are encouraged to make an appointment for the upcoming blood drive either by signing up online at https://www.redcrossblood. org/give.html/find-drive or by calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-7332767). NOTE: If the appointment schedule is full, walk-ins may not be able to donate. Please note the Red Cross is not testing donors to diagnose illness, including COVID-19. If you feel unwell for any reason, please postpone your donation. Individuals who believe they may be ill with COVID-19 should not attempt to donate until they are symptom free for 14 days and feeling well and healthy.

Coweta County Sheriff’s Department Chief Deputy James Yarbrough was one of the many donors at the Senoia Area blood drive last August. You, too, can make a difference in the lives of others by donating at the November 1st drive at the Senoia United Methodist Church.

The Senoia United Methodist Church is in the historic district of Senoia and is located at 229 Bridge Street. It is at the intersection of Seavy and Bridge Streets. For those not familiar with the area, you can turn east at the downtown intersection of Main Street and Seavy Street, and go past Matt’s Smalltown Pizza and the Veranda Bed & Breakfast towards the Seavy Street City Park or State Highway 85. The church is on the right - only about 2 blocks east of Main Street. The need is constant. The gratification is instant. Give Blood. ™ ■

“He found me!” I exclaimed. Ninja Man blinked and surely, wondering who in the world “found” me at that hour of night, just looked at me like I was nuts and went back to sleep. The next morning at breakfast, I filled my husband in on everything. “Don’t you see? We moved, he went flying high and low looking for me and lo and behold, here he is! My whippoorwill FOUND me!” Ninja Man heard him that next night and he has never, ever mentioned that it was most certainly a different bird. Inside, I knew that of course it wasn’t the same bird, but a girl can dream, right? We moved eight years later to a tidy neighborhood without many trees for a whippoorwill to enjoy. Despite the many hours spent on a porch listening for that familiar song, my whippoorwill never came to that house at all.

We returned home to Coweta in 2017. I’ve been listening for my whippoorwill ever since the first night in our new home. We are once again in the country with lots of woods and all the bugs and nesting possibilities my little bird could ever want, but alas, he has yet to arrive. A group called Partners in Flight states that the whippoorwill is in “steep decline” with a 69% drop in population from 1966-2010. But I’m hopeful that “my” whippoorwill has just realized our last move and will show up any day, or night. One thing is for sure, I don’t want to miss a moment of his song.

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 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 the Fall 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.

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 18 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
