Meet Master Gardener Extension Volunteer …

It's not too late to get your Great Pumpkin from The Veggie Patch


Let Me Introduce You to One of Our Esteemed Master Gardeners! Carol Fuller By Marci Moore, Master Gardener Extension Volunteer for Coweta County

Veggie Patch

Master Gardener Extension Volunteer, Carol Fuller, began her Master Gardener service in 2007 after she retired from the Georgia Secretary of State’s office. In 2014, she was honored as the Master Gardener of the Year. Carol has held multiple volunteer positions and currently serves as vice president. For many years, Carol chaired the "Sunshine Committee" and was responsible for sending cards, warm wishes, and checking in on volunteers who needed a little extra support during times of sorrow or illness. Carol is known for her kind smile and willingness to pitch in on a variety of projects. If you have attended a Backyard Association program, you may have met Carol. She sets up free educational literature, welcomes attendees at the door and distributes information packets to first-time attendees. She is also a dependable greenhouse volunteer and serves as a cashier at spring and fall plant sales.

Carol does not have much down time. She is a busy lady. When she isn’t gardening, she can be found bowling, volunteering, traveling or looking after her pups. She is an active member of a bowling league and has raised boxers for more than 40 years. She even has experience in training obedience and therapy dogs for others. She enjoys taking her dogs to retirement centers so the pups can entertain and love on the seniors. Carol's husband, Walt, is an antique car enthusiast and is currently building a 1951 Ford. Carol and Walt attend many cruise-ins and enjoy road trips in their vintage vehicles. Walt is a very talented mechanic and does most of his own "wrenching". Carol’s landscape was full of challenges including muscadine vines, briars and poison ivy, but she put together a beautiful landscape plan and with lots of work, it came together beautifully. Since her property is mostly shaded, she has many shade loving plants including hostas. She says her yard offers a fine dining experience for the local deer. They are even bold enough to eat the hostas growing on her front stoop. Carol is known to MGEVs as the "Coleus Lady". She propagates many varieties to share with friends--some particularly love the Wasabi variety. Her garden has cement, metal, and glass decorative critters (especially frogs and pink flamingos) that will bring a smile. Walt even had a pink flamingo chromed for her while having some parts chromed for his antique vehicles. As a wise, water-smart gardener, Carol uses six rain barrels to water her plants and puts all her scraps, clippings and recyclable plant life into her compost bins to use in her new plantings. She along with her four-legged assistants are potting plants and preparing for the next plant sale. Come meet Carol and see why Coweta Master Gardeners are so fond of this wonderful lady.

The Staging Life with Nan Johnston Is it Time to Spruce up Your Curb Appeal? When it’s time to place your house on the market, we all want the largest $$$ we can get! Curb Appeal is a high priority in perceived value to a buyer and is worth the time or expense to get it right. Here are a few tips to help you get started. Clean, clean, clean! Pressure wash, touch up paint, clean out flower beds, rake up fallen leaves, pine cones and pick up fallen limbs or debris. Remove over grown bushes, trees or plants. Although labor intensive, removing and replanting with fresh smaller plants will go a long way in a buyer’s eye. They don’t want to move in and start that project and the house that has already removed that task from the “honey-do” list will get more consideration.

Notes from Jackson Street When John Winters asked me, “Would you want to write the column for October?” I responded with “Hmm, well, let me think about that for a minute.” Which lasted about a second.

community that we all agreed we needed to cover it - to keep people informed. So every day we do just that, writing up a very detailed story on hospitalizations, new infections and unfortunately, death as well.

On the inside, I was basically the picture perfect GIF of a five-year-old doing a happy dance. I love connecting with you, our readers.

The virus has impacted all of us in some way: shutting down businesses, delaying school, social distancing and so much more.

We are coming up on our fourth year of owning “The Shopper” and this past May we celebrated the third anniversary of “The Paper,” which we started as a “what to do, see and eat” publication. Our publications and our social media accounts on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, make up Winters Media and Publishing, Inc. and give us a platform to help local businesses grow, market themselves and flourish.

And it has had a huge impact on something very close to our hearts, local non-profit organizations. Most of our non-profits were birthed out of great loss and heartache. The founders of these nonprofits stared adversity in the face and took bold actions to make long term change in the lives of others. They continue to do this during the pandemic and we are honored to help them as best we can.

We are a family-owned micro publishing house, specifically targeting Coweta County and other surrounding communities. Our team is incredible and does everything from writing, to posting stories on social media, to designing ads to getting our product off to the Post Office. Our columnists cover our favorite joints, the local music scene, what is trending in our area, recipes, chefs, book clubs and others’ perspective on living life!

Most non-profits have been forced to cancel their biggest fundraisers, which have a huge financial impact on them. They are now hosting “virtual events” and our local communities are stepping up to help them continue to raise vital funding to do what they do best ... helping others.

We don’t cover what is often referred to as “hard news.” We don’t have to and we like that. Winters would say, “I have been there, done that for more than 35 years.” Our focus with both publications is to spotlight all that is good in our communities and everything we have right here at our fingertips.

I hope I’ve shed a little more light on what we do and why we do it. And on behalf of all of us here at Winters Media and Publishing, we want to thank you for reading, reposting, sharing and picking up The Shopper and The Paper! And as we travel through these uncharted territories of 2020, don’t be discouraged or grow weary of doing good. There is beauty all around you. Wash your hands, wear a mask and stay safe my friends.

I like to say, “Your business is our business and we want to help you grow your business and maintain long-term economic stability.” Remember that what you spend here stays here. I don’t want to just sell you an ad, we want to help you grow your business and succeed. So back to the “no hard news coverage.” We have chosen, however, to cover the COVID-19 pandemic. It has had such an impact on our

SHOPPER Real Estate Low Appraisal? One of the most common questions I receive is what happens if we have a low appraisal? Most real estate with Jess Barron contracts are contingent upon the property appraising for the sales price. The appraisal is ordered by the lender, but typically paid for by the buyer unless negotiated otherwise. A low appraisal can be common in a hot market where home values are rising faster than the comparable sales can keep up. The good news is that a low appraisal does not mean the deal is over. In fact, we are able to work out most low appraisals. One option you have is to appeal the appraisal. This is when you need to lean on your Realtor to find suitable comparable sales that will support your contract price. Appraisers can make mistakes and overlook sales. Make sure you or your Realtor look at off-market sales and not just transactions on the local MLS. Once you have some transactions that you think will support the value, the buyer’s lender will send these to the appraiser to see if they warrant an adjustment. Unfortunately, appraisal challenges typically do not have a high success rate.

Medicare Open Enrollment period from Oct. 15-Dec. 7 The 2020 Open Enrollment Period for Medicare opens October 15 and runs through December 7. If you or a loved one is new to Medicare, you owe it to yourself to find out all you can now so there are no surprises later. Let’s begin with the basics. Medicare Part A, which covers hospital stays, skilled nursing, hospice and some home health services, will cost up to $458 a month if you paid Medicare taxes for less than 30 quarters. If you paid Medicare taxes for 30 to 39 quarters, the standard premium is $252. Keep in mind, this coverage comes with a $1,408 deductible per benefit period and there is a “cap” on the benefits received. Medicare Part B covers doctor visits, outpatient services, and medical equipment. The standard premium is $144 but may be higher depending on your income. The deductible is $198. After your deductible is met you will typically pay 20 percent of Medicare approved services. There is also a Part D, that will pay for prescriptions and Part C – or a Medicare Advantage Plan – which will cover expenses that Part A, B and D do not cover.

Senior Living Advice with BETH DOW, Certified Senior Advisor

There are several expenses that are not covered under Medicare. Routine vision checks, eyeglasses, and contacts are not covered under Medicare. Hearing aid costs are not covered. Medicare does not pay for routine teeth cleaning, x-rays, fillings or root canals. It does not pay for dentures, gum or oral surgery. Custodial Care, which includes non-medical home care, assisted living and nursing home care, is not covered by Medicare. And neither are chiropractic treatments nor acupuncture. If you are spending your “golden” years traveling, you should also be aware that Medicare does not cover you when you are outside of the United States There are Medicare Advantage Plans that will cover emergency costs outside of the Unit-

Accepting a low appraisal can be in the best interest of a seller to avoid the risk of not finding another buyer, going through another negotiation, home inspection, appraisal, etc. In fact, with FHA and VA loans, the low appraisal will actually stay with the house for six months so a seller will be even more motivated to work the negotiation out. The seller could however terminate and wait on a buyer with a conventional or different type of loan. The option of negotiating with the seller is often successful because most sellers realize that an appraiser will likely be using the same comparable sales for any appraisal.

Much more than your neighborhood pharmacy!

Another option is to order a second appraisal. This second appraisal will still need to be approved by the buyer’s lender. All parties must agree to the use of a second appraisal. The cost can be anywhere for a few hundred dollars to well above $1,000 depending on the type of appraisal. A third option, and usually the most successful, is to negotiate with the seller. Typically, a seller will negotiate on a low appraisal. Keep in mind if the seller is paying your closing costs, per the sales contract, they may ask you to a pay a portion or all of your closing costs in return for a price reduction on the low appraisal. A good listing agent will know to ask for this.

ed States and you can purchase a Medigap Policy that can help pay up to $50,000 of medical expenses while you are outside of the U.S. One last surprise to be aware of. If you are held in the hospital under observation and then require rehabilitation, Medicare will not pay for your rehab. You must be admitted to the hospital for 3 days for your Medicare to kick in for the rehabilitation. Just because you spend the night in the hospital, does not mean you have been admitted. Spend October learning the facts and finding out what plans will work best for you. You will be making decisions that you have to live with for a year. Make the best educated decision for you and your loved one. If you would like additional information and guidance, contact GeorgiaCares at 866-552-4464 #4.

As a buyer, you could always terminate the deal and find another home. This is common when the difference between the sales price and the appraisal value is very large. This is where your Realtor can play a valuable role for you. It is important to have an appraisal contingency written in your contract, to protect you from a low appraisal. This will also allow you to receive your earnest money back and exit the deal without penalty. A low appraisal does not mean the deal is over. In fact, they usually work out and to the buyer’s favor. A good Realtor is key in placing language and contingencies in the contract to protect you from a low value. Realtors can also assist you in negotiating with the seller and listing agent to work the deal out for everyone. Jess Barron is an Associate Broker with Lindseys, Inc.

Get ready for Holidays with Layaway, Bargains, Seasonal Jobs or baby-sitting their children. Lastly, be practical with your gift selections. Give the person something they actually need. Because of the need for virtual learning and working from home during the COVID-19 pandemic, office furniture and Internet service are terrific gift options. Office furniture has been flying off the shelves this year, so don’t wait until the last minute to find it. Also, shop around for deals on Internet service.

The holiday season might seem far away, but the months are passing by quickly and it will soon be time for delicious feasts, decorations, gifts and festivities with loved ones. This year has been financially challenging for many families, so some parents might need to start planning ahead in order to afford holiday gifts and celebrations for their children. Taking advantage of layaway, finding deals and getting a seasonal job are a few ways to make ends meet during the holiday season.


Take Advantage of Layaway Layaway is a great option that allows parents to get the items they want before they’re sold out. This service can also help save money in the long run. Shoppers make payments until their layaway bill is paid in full, which prevents them from accruing interest charges, as they would with credit cards. Walmart is offering layaway through Dec. 14. To qualify for layaway, individual items must be $10 or more, and the minimum basket amount must be $50. Customers are required to make a down payment of $10 or 10 percent, whichever is greater. Items eligible for layaway include media, gaming, cameras and supplies, toys, sporting goods, automotive, cooking and dining, home décor, fabrics and craft, bedding, wireless and jewelry, with some restrictions. Layaways are opened and picked up at the store’s designated layaway counter, but payments can be made at any register. Final payment and pick up must be made on or before the close of business on Dec. 14. Orders not claimed by Dec. 14 will be canceled, and any payments will be refunded. For more information about Walmart’s layaway program, visit https://www.

Search for Deals It’s never too early to search for savings on food, toys, clothes and other holiday gift items. Be on the lookout for sales, store coupons and discount codes. For holiday meals, plan your menu now and make a list of the ingredients that you will need to prepare your entrees, side dishes, desserts and more. Nonperishable goods can be purchased weeks ahead of time, so review weekly sales ads and look for digital or printed coupons at grocery and department stores to get the best prices on food items. Many retail stores are already offering great sales on clothes, shoes, jewelry, home items and other merchandise. To take advantage of these early bargains, establish your holiday shopping budget, make a list of the loved ones you’d like to shop for and decide what you’d like to buy for each person. Remember that it’s the thought that counts. Don’t go into debt buying holiday gifts. If your family needs to reduce its holiday spending this year, consider drawing names so that each adult only buys a gift for one person. Rather than buying gifts from the store, make something the recipient would cherish, such as a picture album or homemade cake, or offer free services, such as doing yard work, washing their car

Make Extra Cash If you need extra money to buy gifts or food this holiday season, or to simply get ahead in your finances, look for a seasonal job. Retail stores and shipping businesses usually need extra workers to meet the holiday demand. Also, use your talents to make some extra cash. If you’re a great cook, let people know that you’re taking orders for holiday desserts and dishes. If you have a flair for decorating, ask if anyone would like to have their home decorated for the holidays. Seek Help The COVID-19 pandemic has been devastating for many household incomes, and some parents might be forced to choose between paying for necessities, such as rent, utilities and food, and buying holiday gifts for their children. Some non-profit organizations, such as churches and The Salvation Army, offer holiday assistance to families in need. Through the Angel Tree Program, The Salvation Army provides one million children with Christmas gifts of new clothes and toys. Anonymous donors adopt “angels” and buy gifts based on information that is provided, and people also generously donate gift items in bulk. This year, The Salvation Army expects that an additional 1.6 million people will seek help for the Christmas season.

To learn more about the Angel Tree Program at The Salvation Army Newnan, call 770-251-8181 or visit https://salvationarmygeorgia.org/newnan/. To donate to the Angel Tree Program or help The Salvation Army provide grocery, bill pay or homeless shelter assistance to those in need, visit https://www.salvationarmyusa.org/usn/brighten-the-holidays/. Starting Oct. 1, Coweta families can sign up for Christmas in Coweta, an annual program led by Bridging the Gap that purchases Christmas gifts for children in Coweta County whose parents can’t afford to buy them. Parents should sign up as soon as possible at either www.christmasincoweta.org or www.christmasincoweta. com. Slots are expected to fill quickly. Families will be asked to provide their children’s clothing and shoe sizes and a brief wish list, as well as information to verify each child’s identity. For assistance or to sponsor a child, call 770-683-9110. Save on Holiday Travel Many people might opt to stay close to home this year, rather than travel out of town to visit relatives. However, if you’re still eager to travel, experts are unsure whether airline and hotel prices will increase dramatically during the holiday season. Nerdwallet.com predicts that airfare prices will increase, but not much, while hotel lodging in small and medium-sized cities could be costly. The personal finance website recommends that travelers who plan to visit a small town and stay in a hotel should book the room well in advance and make sure they can cancel it for free, in case their travel plans change. Also, membership programs, such as AAA and AARP, offer discounts on hotels, rental cars, restaurants and more, so do your research to take advantage of these savings.

The Newnan chapter has been active in Red Ribbon Week for many years, distributing red ribbons and other incentives to local schools, conducting drug awareness seminars and poster contests at Maggie Brown, and participating in the DEA Take Back Days, and other programs. “It is our hope that our children be empowered to make informed decisions by the knowledge gained through such campaigns,” Whitlock added. Because of COVID restrictions, the Newnan chapter is putting together incentive packets to be distributed to students, along with red ribbons and supplies for poster contests.

Encouraging Words

October 2020 …

Shake off that default attitude! Do you awaken mornings just to start out feeling negative? Do you immediately find something to complain or worry about? It’s called negativity, and it may be your default attitude. And don’t be surprised if it lasts all day! You can change the way you feel, and act, and think, however, it may take some practice. Take a look at how others have learned to shake off that “default” negativity. It’s your choice – really! “A positive attitude is something that EVERYONE can work on, and learn how to enjoy,” writes Joan Lunder. Dan Lanneman once wrote, “It’s a wonderful thing to be optimistic. It keeps us healthy and resilient.” And Dr. Joyce Brothers adds to this, “A strong, POSITIVE self-image is the best possible preparation for success.” According to Joel Osteen, “CHOOSING to be positive and having a grateful attitude is going to determine how you're going to live your life.” “Always do your best,” writes Miguel Ruiz, “But your best is going to change from day to day; it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to when you are sick. So under any circumstance, simply DO YOUR BEST and you will avoid self-judgement , selfabuse, and regret.” “So when you wake up every day,” says Harvey Mackay, “You have two choices. You can either be positive or negative, an optimist or a pessimist. I CHOOSE to be an optimist – it's all a matter of perspective.” “So, stay positive and happy.”, Tena Desae tells us. “Work hard and don’t give up hope. Be open to criticism and keep learning. Surround yourself with happy, warm, and genuine people.” And as I have told you before, “Put a smile on your face, a spring in your step, and a twinkle in your eye!”

UUUUUUUU “This is the day the Lord has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it!” … Psalms 118-24



Front Porch Stories

I’ll probably never forget February 15, 2016. It was the day we found out our sixteenmonth-old grandlittle Wren was diagnosed with neuroblastoma cancer. Wren and her family traveled from their home here in Newnan to the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) last month. Several specifics about her cancerous tumor qualified her for a clinical trial that was available only at CHOP. Though the meds would eventually become available in Atlanta, this was a three-year checkup and her CHOP doctor wanted to see her. They did a COVID test, and thanks to a video from the Mayo Clinic for pediatric COVID testing, she was aware of the procedure and actually giggled when the swab reached its destination. They also performed her standard tests which include bloodwork, MRI and MIBG. On Thursday, September 17, our daughter called with the news. This child, who has been fighting for years, is in remission. The journey from that first news to the most recent diagnosis has been the hardest days of our lives. But we are stronger in our faith because of this experience. I cannot speak from her mommy and daddy’s standpoint, but this grandmother’s heart reached a level of accepting God’s will that surpassed any and everything I’ve ever dealt with. God provided. He provided time and resources for me to become half of Wren’s care team. I was able to travel from the Savannah area to Newnan every month to take my daughter and Wren to appointments. Big sister Phoebe Jo wanted her daddy, so he worked from home and kept her during our many trips to CHOA. Almost two years later my husband retired, we relocated to Newnan, and he would step in and help. My new job was to stay home and breathe. Of course, I knew without a doubt that God had a plan for this child. We didn’t know what it was or if we would ever know, but accepting His will was a stronghold. Jeremiah 29:11 states this: “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” I knew regardless of the outcome, that God would fulfill His will with this child. God blessed us. So many people helped in small and large ways. My best friend in Savannah took care of me, arranged a team to help us prepare to move, managed a private social media group that would keep everyone up to date on Wren. God provided donations to our daughter and her family to help with unexpected costs and finances. It wasn’t just the monumental things, it was also the little things that allowed me to see God working in this. The pastors who prayed as every single first drop of chemo that went into this child, the cafeteria worker I’d never met who saw me from a distance and just walked over and put her arms around me. The hospital staff, the parking attendants, the lanes that opened up for this grandma who would never, ever, drive in downtown Atlanta. At the end of one of the many prayers during chemo, Wren whispered, “Bees Dod.” She was pleading “please God.” He heard. Years after this tiny, precious petition to God, we would receive the best news of all. She is in remission. And September 29, 2020 marked Wren’s sixth birthday. This family celebrated.

Now Is the Time to Treat for Fire Ants Fall is the best time to treat for fire ants for a couple of reasons, (1) ant populations are at their peak after multiplying through the summer months, and (2) winter is tough on ants, so anything left over after the treatment will struggle. With a fall treatment, you should see much lower populations in the spring. People often ask about the effectiveness of various “safer methods” for fire ant control that they have heard from friends and neighbors. Some of the more common ones include grits, gasoline, vinegar, and boiling water. There is a reason that the Extension office recommends research-based information. Some of these don’t work at all and others are just downright dangerous. For example, will boiling water kill fire ants? Sure, it will. It will also kill your grass around the anthill and more importantly, how “safe” is it to run around your yard with a big pot of boiling water? I would never recommend boiling water as a “safe” alternative to the specially formulated ant baits and contact insecticides that are made specifically for controlling fire ants. Here is what you need to know to treat for fire ants safely and effectively. •

No matter which fire ant product you choose, always read, and follow the label instructions exactly. The label is the law. You can find an assortment of fire ant products at local lawn and garden centers including baits like hydramethylnon (Amdro), s-methoprene (Extinguish), or hydramethylnon+smethoprene (Amdro Fire Strike).* If you prefer a mound drench product, look for spinosad, permethrin or bifenthrin products. For a complete list of products available to homeowners, contact the Coweta County Extension office at 770-254-2620 or email coweta.extension@uga.edu.

A two-step approach using bait and contact insecticide will provide the longest lasting control. Apply the bait product, wait 10 days, then check the mounds for activity. Apply a mound drench (or a second bait treatment) to any ant hills that are still active.

Apply baits when temperatures are between 60 and 90 degrees Fahrenheit and ants are actively foraging. So how do you know if they are foraging? Throw a regular potato chip or two in the yard and check on them 20-30 minutes later. If they are covered in ants, then they are foraging. Don’t forget to look on the bottom side of the chip next to the ground. Fire ants don’t like to be in the hot sun, so they might be under the chip.

When applying baits, do not disturb the mound or apply bait directly to the mound. Apply the bait around the mound but not on it. If you have a large area to cover, then it may be easier to use a broadcast spreader. However, do not use a spreader that has had fertilizer or other materials in it. Fire ants are very sensitive to contaminated baits. They will avoid baits that have been in containers that held fertilizers and gasoline. They will even avoid baits that have been in contact with cigarette smoke.

When applying a contact insecticide as a mound drench, be sure to mix the proper amount into a gallon container such as a water sprinkling can. Pour the solution on top of and around the mound like a gentle rain. Otherwise, do not disturb the mound. Use a minimum of 2 gallons of solution per mound. Be aware that these products still may not give an immediate kill. Once a bag of bait has been opened, try to use the entire product within a few days. The oil carrier can degrade over time, and the ants may not take it if the product sits out.

For more information about controlling fire ants, contact UGA Cooperative Extension in Coweta County at 770-254-2620 and ask for the publication, “Managing Imported Fire Ants in Urban Areas.” “The University of Georgia College of Agricultural & Environmental Sciences is an Equal Opportunity, Affirmative Action, Veteran, Disability Institution.” *Trade and brand names are for information only.

Cooking and the colors of fall

Fall is one of my favorite times to cook. I’ve already made my first pot of chili, and I’m pulling out my back issues of fall magazines to see if perchance there’s a pumpkin spice recipe I haven’t tried yet. (Tip: Add a teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice to your favorite shortbread recipe. You won’t regret it!) Some of my favorite fall foods feature fall colors. I like the golden hue of butternut squash soup, the earthy brown of pumpkin bread, and the light gold of maple fudge. No color says fall to me, however, like orange, and orange also happens to be the color of one of the prettiest, tastiest soups I’ve ever made. Years ago, I visited the charming Ozark Mountain town of Eureka Springs, Arkansas, a storybook town if ever there was one. It’s brimming with Victorian homes, and a lover of all things Victorian would surely enjoy a visit. Later, I came across a cookbook from a circa 1879 building that I don’t recall seeing on that trip but wish I had—the Victorian Sampler Tearoom. I bought the cookbook since it brought back fond memories of Eureka Springs, and the Victorian Sampler’s Carrot Soup recipe immediately caught my eye since it was labeled the "most requested soup recipe" there. Now I should mention that the book suggests you puree this soup in a blender or food mill. I used my food processor instead and loved the result. Instead of being completely liquefied, the soup has tiny specks of carrot, and once I sampled it, I liked it that way. So did my husband, and we agreed that this soup doesn't taste too carrot-y at all and deserves a name more exotic than simply Carrot Soup. And while I know that grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup are famous as a pairing, I believe this carrot soup would be a fine substitute for the tomato one. This soup may be served in teacups for a fun presentation, but please don’t limit it to teatime—this rich, hearty soup definitely belongs on your fall table.


Creamy Carrot Soup o 3 tablespoons butter,

divided use o 3/4 cup onion, chopped o 3 cups carrots, chopped o 4 cups chicken stock o 2 tablespoons tomato paste o 2 tablespoons plain uncooked rice o Salt and white pepper, to taste o 1/2 cup heavy cream

Add carrots, chicken stoc p (in a blender or food Simmer for 30 minutes. Puree the sou on as desired and stir in processor) until smooth, then seas ter. Garnish with carrot cream and remaining tablespoon of but curls. Serves 6.

Can’t Never Could Observes Learning Differences and Dyslexia Awareness Month By Can’t Never Could, Inc. The local nonprofit Can’t Never Could (CNC) is observing October as Learning Differences and Dyslexia Awareness Month. CNC supports those with learning differences and dyslexia through its scholarships to Squirrel Hollow Summer Camp at the Bedford School in Fairburn. One of Can’t Never Could’s co-founders, the late Rob Estes, had dyslexia, and it was his struggle with dyslexia that caused Rob to say “I can’t” do something, resulting in Rob’s mother famously telling him, “Can’t never could.” According to the International Dyslexia Association (IDA), while dyslexia can make reading more difficult, almost all of those with dyslexia can learn to read if they have the right instruction. Many people with dyslexia go on to accomplish great things, says the IDA, noting that Thomas Edison, Stephen Spielberg, F. Scott Fitzgerald and Charles Schwab all had dyslexia. According to IDA, “Dyslexia is a neurological condition caused by a different wiring of the brain. There is no cure for dyslexia, and individuals with this condition must learn coping strategies. Research indicates that dyslexia has no relationship to intelligence. Individuals with dyslexia are neither more nor less intelligent than the general population. But some say the way individuals with dyslexia think can actually be an asset in achieving success.” Sara Ashley Estes, the daughter of CNC co-founders Rob and Christi Estes, has dyslexia and recalls the challenges it caused her. “I remember realizing I was a little different than the other kids, specifically in kindergarten. I watched as all the kids in my class conquered their sight words. That entire school year, I learned two words, ‘the’ and ‘a.’ Every morning, we would come into class, and we would draw in our journals before class started and write a sentence that corresponded with our drawing. My sentence was the same that entire school year. ‘I like to play.’” Estes says she found hope in overcoming her struggle of catching up with all the other kids when she attended her first Squirrel Hollow camp the summer after kindergarten. “In that first two weeks of camp, I learned how to count to 100 and read a handful of words, which is way more than I ever achieved in the entire year of kindergarten.” Since her dad had dyslexia as well, Estes said, that helped give her parents hope, “Because if he could handle it, I certainly could. I never really knew how far I was behind the other kids because I was just a little kindergartner.” Now a freshman at Clemson University, Estes says her learning disabilities haven’t kept her from achieving her goals. “Sure, I’ve had to find my own methods of learning that help me succeed, but if you have the willpower and determination to prove to everyone else that you are capable of just as much as a ‘normal’ individual, if not even more, you will surely succeed. It’s very important to figure out what works for you!”

Rachel Kinrade of Newnan, daughter of CNC Board Member JoAn Kinrade and her husband, David Kinrade, has also achieved success despite being diagnosed with dyslexia in second grade and struggling through school. “My mom was an elementary school teacher at the time and noticed the difficulties I was having. My personal struggles were reading, reading comprehension, numbers, and figuring out what a question was asking and how to come up with the answer.” In middle and high school, Rachel and her parents worked with her teachers to create a specialized plan for her. “My teachers saw how hard I would work in school, and many students didn't know I had a learning difference. I was often perceived as ‘the smart girl’ or the ‘goody-goody,’” she says. When Rachel was a senior in high school, her counselor told her that she wouldn’t make it through college because of her learning difference. “I believed her and, to this day, cannot believe she said that to me. I changed my track from college prep to technical prep. From that moment on, I believed that I could not make it because of my learning difference. It defined me and who I was.” Rachel graduated from high School in 2009—with honors. After graduation, she enrolled at the Art Institute of Atlanta and earned an associate’s degree in Culinary Arts with a concentration in Baking and Pastry. But Rachel’s dream had long been to attend the University of Georgia (UGA), and she graduated in May of 2018, although that degree did not come without challenges. After getting accepted to UGA, she emailed the Art Institute of Atlanta to see what credits would transfer, if any, and learned that she had been accepted to UGA in error. Still, the school kept its word and allowed her to enroll. Ending up with a 1.49 GPA after her first semester, Rachel got retested for dyslexia,

got accommodations for her classes, and was given the resources she needed to accomplish her dream of graduating from UGA. “I worked hard my whole life for that, and I will be forever grateful to the professors,” she says. She also served on the Disability Resource Center’s Students Bureau at UGA so she could help others on campus who needed extra resources. Today, Rachel works for the Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta as an Assistant Camp Director at Camp Meriwether in Luthersville. “One of the most important things I learned was that I am not defined by my learning difference, and I am able to do hard things,” she says. “My advice to others with learning differences is to never give up! Always chase your dreams, no matter what people tell you or how hard it may be.” Rachel noted that she shares a “life verse” from the Bible with Rob Estes—Philippians 4:13, which says, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” “I actually have it tattooed on my left wrist,” Rachel says. “Every time I see the word ‘Strength’ and ‘Philippians 4:13,’ I think of him and the impact he had on my life.” While Rob didn’t make it to her graduation at UGA, Rachel said she knows he was there in spirit. “I will forever wish I could have one more bear hug of his. His perseverance and similar story through adversity and learning differences got me through, made me strong, and gave me the ability to keep being passionate and do the darn thing! He was so special to me, and I will forever be grateful to him and his family for what they have given me.” For more information about Can’t Never Could, visit cantnevercouldinc.com. ###

Public Safety Committee Gets Demonstration of New Police Restraint System - BolaWrap

Ask your 4-H Agent Kelly Zern

4-H Agent Youth Development Agent UGA Extension – Coweta County

How can I encourage S.T.E.M. activities at home? By: Kelly Zern, 4-H Youth Development Agent, UGA Extension Coweta County

The Newnan Police Department demonstrated a new non-lethal restraint system – the BolaWrap – to members of the Newnan Coweta Public Safety Foundation. The BolaWrap is fired from a device and shoots out two arrow-like darts attached by a string that wrap around a suspect’s legs or arms to keep them immobilized. Each of the devices cost about $1,000 and the NPD was able to get more than a dozen with a grant from the foundation and using seized drug money. The foundation awards scholarships to children of public safety employees, as well as helping out with medial or financial difficulties. “The Foundation has also supplied the different agencies with equipment that is not included in their budget but which enables them to protect themselves and to aid the citizens in our area,” said Norma Haynes, chairwoman.

S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) is often referenced in the education and business world. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, from 2012-2022 an estimated 9 million jobs will be created in S.T.E.M. related fields. This number has prompted educational institutions to promote S.T.E.M. education to equip youth with skills needed for their future careers. These skills, according to the National Inventors Hall of Fame, include media and technology literacy, entrepreneurship, curiosity, communication, flexibility, and acceptance of failure. Schools are working on preparing our youth, but there are many activities that can be done at home to instill these skills in your children. In 2008, the National 4-H Council began an initiative called 4-H National Youth Science Day. Land grant universities across the United States worked together to promote S.T.E.M. through fun, accessible activites. Now called the National 4-H STEM Challenge, 4-H devotes the month of October to promote S.T.E.M. activities to communities across the nation. This year the October challenge is themed 2020 Mars Base Camp and is available in a toolkit forms for educators and families. The challenge was created by Google and Virginia Cooperative Extension for students ages 8-14. The kits are available for purchase and provide materials and instructions to build a Mars rover, parachute onto a planet’s surface, computer code a story about Mars, and learn about space agriculture on the red planet. Not interested in purchasing a kit? The coding activities can be completed at no cost by visiting website https://4-h.org/parents/4h-stem-challenge/. There you will find detailed instructions and step-by-step video tutorials.

“Through the years, the Foundation has provided training material, specially equipped bicycles for the police department and for the fire department, special equipment for the Coweta EMS to help save stroke victims’ lives, equipment for the 911 agency, radio operated collars for the canine division of the Sheriff Office, special protection helmets for the SWAT team, ballistic shields for officers, and the list goes on and on,” she added. “We are so happy to provide the BolaWrap equipment which is demonstrated today.” The foundation is always looking for donations “no matter how small,” which may be sent to: NCPS FOUNDATION P. O. Box 1113, Newnan, Georgia 30264. Look for the video on our website: wintersmedia.net.

Newnan Cancels Its Christmas Parade From Special Reports After careful consideration and consulting with local and regional public health experts, the city of Newnan has made the difficult decision to cancel the City of Newnan Christmas parade this year. “With approximately thousands of community members attending the parade each year, the health and well-being of staff, volunteers, participants, and supporters is our top priority,” said Hasco Craver, assistant city manager for the city of Newnan. “Many factors were considered when making this decision, most notably the decreased number of potential participants and adherence to social distancing protocols, which have made it difficult for parade participants to gather and decorate their floats or practice routines “We thank the members of the community in advance for their patience and understanding,” he added. It is important to note that the city of Newnan is currently considering an event that will allow the community to enjoy the Christmas season in an appropriate and responsible way. Stay tuned for more information.

The 2020 Mars Base Camp is just part of the many offerings that National 4-H and Georgia 4-H promote throughout the month of October. To find more resources, activities, and events visit https://4-h.org/ or https://georgia4h.org/blast-off-withgeorgia-4-h/. With so many resources at your fingertips, you can promote S.T.E.M. at home and prepare your children for a bright future! Georgia 4-H promotes science, technology, and engineering in math through state and local programming. In Coweta County, we provide a wide array of year-long programs and opportunities for youth to learn through S.T.E.M. activities. To find out more about our local programs, check out our website at ugaextension.org/ Coweta, or find us on Facebook at Coweta County 4-H UGA Extension. Kelly Zern is the Coweta County 4-H Youth Development Agent. Her role includes overseeing all 4-H programming in the county including specialty clubs, S.A.F.E. (Shooting Awareness, Fun and Education) teams, volunteers, schools clubs, and other 4-H programs and events. It is through her leadership and collaborations with community leaders that she can achieve Georgia 4-H’s mission to assist youth in acquiring knowledge, developing life skills, and forming attitudes that will enable them to become self-directing, productive, and contributing members of society.
