Encouraging Words


“I insist on a lot of time being spent, almost every day, to just sit and think. That is very uncommon in American business. I read and think. So I do more reading and thinking, and make less impulse decisions than most people in business. I do it because I like this kind of life.”

Moving On

~ Warren Buffett In studying truly successful people, there are certain traits they share. They are voracious readers; they are constantly learning; and they, for lack of a better word, daydream. By this I mean they just go off by themselves and take stock, of themselves, their companies, their lives. No one will accuse me of not daydreaming. My wife, aka the Little Black Dress and now also preferring the Paper Girl moniker, has looked over at me on more than one occasion and said, “you’re talking to yourself again, aren’t you?” Guilty as charged. I read a lot. I still prefer books, as in words on paper, but carry around a tablet that contains a small library so I don’t look like one of our public high school students hunched over with a giant backpack filled with text books And I am continuing to learn. I’m taking an online course through the University of West Georgia on InDesign. That’s an Adobe program we use to design ads and layout The Paper and The Shopper. And I’d like to plug UWG and their continuing education program. There is a class for everyone, from bartending to smartphone photography (I took that one) to Spanish and beyond. The Carnegie Library is another. You can read, take a course and daydream in a comfy chair all in one spot. Another thing I’m working on is improving my social media creds, which will help improve promotion of our advertisers and offerings for our readers. There is a wise saying that goes: “if you are the smartest person in the room, you are in the wrong room.” In other words, learn from others. Enter Alison, resident “cruise director” and social media guru for 15 Perry St. where Winters Media & Publishing, Inc. hang our shingle. She is teaching me the ways of Instagram. I’m learning there is a difference between a “story” and a “post.” And you can only “boomerang” in a story, which disappears anyway after a while, unlike a post, unless you delete said post. Oh, and a max of 10 photos in a post. When I ask why, I get the “because they say so.” Confused? Yeah, let’s talk “hashtags.” A hashtag is this - # - followed by a word or phrase that others will use to search for a topic of interest. Example, I’ve been putting up photos of our new Lodge cast iron hibachi and some rather awesome meals. So, after the post, I would write #lodge, #castiron, #grilledmarinatedsteak, #food, #hibachi, #johnisawesome and so forth. And sure enough, the cast_iron_community, along with Lodge, found me and now “follow me.” The latter meaning I post something they find interesting. As a minimalist in writing, I prefer a single hashtag. I created this one: #onehashtagtorulethemall (note the last part reads ‘them all’ and not ‘the mall.’) You are free to use.

“Every day is a new day, and you’ll never be able to find happiness if you don’t move on.” … Carrie Underwood “It’s only through labor and painful effort, by grim energy and resolute courage, that we move on to better things.” … Theodore Roosevelt “You may have a fresh start at any moment of your choosing, for this thing that we call failure is not the falling down, but the staying down.” … Mary Pickford “Don’t dwell on what went wrong. Instead, focus on what to do next. Spend your energy on moving forward toward finding the answer.” … Denis Waitley “Forgiving does not erase the bitter past. A healed memory is not a deleted memory. Instead, forgiving what we cannot forget creates a new way to remember the past into a hope for our future.” … Lewis Smedes “Time heals griefs and quarrels, for we change and are no longer the same persons. Neither the offender not the offended are any more themselves.” … Blaise Paqscal

Now, if some of you are saying, but wait, that # isn’t a hashtag, it’s a “pound” sign, I simply say, thank you, thank you, thank you. See Alison? I’m not alone.


Proof? When you get your debit/credit card in the mail and you have to call up to activate it, the little voice on the other end says “please enter your 16-digit account number followed by the “POUND” symbol. They don’t say “hashtag.”

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, He is a new creation: old things have passed away: all things have become new.” … ll Corinthians 5:17

Which I guess just goes to show learning is an ever continuing process.

Fast, Cheap and Done Right


Whether you use a Cricut, Silhouette or other cutting machine we provide the vinyl and supplies you want! Siser and Oracal Adhesive Vinyl are available in a large variety of selections and colors. We also carry the blanks you need to bring your idea to life.

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before. A customer wants you to do the work, and they want it done real quick because their schedule dictates the necessity for a quick turnaround. Plus, they want it cheap. They are looking for the least expensive deal which means you are truly being pitted against your competitors for the privilege of working for this customer. But, you must do it to exacting standards. It must be done right. So, rush through it. Do them a favor by cramming a lot of your own time into it, even if it cuts into your personal family-life. Do them a favor by not making much money on it. Let the customer and their family keep the money because you don’t need that much, right? Finally, do them a favor by doing the job with absolute perfection. I once owned a construction company. This scenario was our number one issue with demanding customers. They wanted it Fast, they wanted it Cheap, and they wanted it Done Right. It didn’t take long in my construction career, when faced with the Fast/Cheap/Done Right challenge, to give my customers the choice of only choosing two. I can give you a fast job and it will be done cheap, but it might not be perfect. I will do a good job nonetheless, because I do good work, but there will be shortcuts necessary in order to make it happen. I can give you a cheap job that is done right, but it will not be a fast job. It will be on my time and not at the expense of my family or more profitable projects.

Savvy Crafters Vinyl and Gifts ... Do Something Creative Every Day!

I can give you a job that is fast and done right, but it will not be cheap. After all I will have late hours, more stress, and it will impact my time with my family. That will force a premium price. Fast? Cheap? Or, Done Right? Choose two. Don’t discount the value of your own time, your ability to make a fair profit, and your expertise to do the job well. If your customer appreciates that approach, they are worth keeping. If not, then let someone else have the headaches. Let me know if I can help. Ken Hammock


We Believe… The flu is nothing to sneeze at!

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), influenza has resulted in between 9.2 million and 35.6 million illnesses annually since 2010. The best way to stay out of such statistics, the CDC says, is for everyone who is eligible and at least 6 months old to get a flu shot as soon as the vaccine becomes available. “Surprising to many, it can actually take up to two weeks for the flu vaccine to build immunity,” explained Angela Patterson, Chief Nurse Practitioner Officer at MinuteClinic. “Because of this, CVS Pharmacy recommends patients get their flu shot as soon as the vaccine becomes available to ensure patients are the most protected before flu season peaks. Furthermore, influenza strains tend to change each year, so it’s very important to get vaccinated annually to make sure you are protected.” Follow these tips to protect yourself and others during flu season: 1. Stay home if you’re sick. Flulike symptoms don’t always stop some people from going to work or out in public in general. A recent survey found: • 28 percent have gone to the supermarket • 12 percent have picked up a child from school or day care • 10 percent have taken public transportation. 2. Wash your hands often with soap and water. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based cleansing gel. 3. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth. Germs spread this way. 4. Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that may be contaminated with germs. The CDC warns that flu season has begun earlier than ever this year. Wesley Woods of Newnan urges everyone in the community to get the flu shot as soon as possible. We care about your health and well-being!

Faces of Philanthropy What’s raised here, stays here.

Community Foundation readies for Oct. 25 Power of the Purse The Coweta Community Foundation is busy readying for its Fourth Annual Power of the Purse Luncheon on Thursday, October 25, 2018 at The Newnan Centre, 1515 Lower Fayetteville Rd., Newnan. The event will also include the announcement of the 2018 Woman of the Year and a live auction of dozens of designer purses. The speaker for this year’s luncheon will be Mayor Teresa Tomlinson, who was elected as the 69th mayor of Columbus, Georgia, on November 30, 2010 with 68 percent of the vote and was sworn in the following January as the city’s first female mayor. She has six times been named to Georgia Trend’s 100 Most Influential Georgians, and she holds a National Security Secret Clearance with the Department of Defense. In 2015, Mayor Tomlinson, together with other alumnae, led the effort to save her undergraduate alma mater, Sweet Briar College in Virginia. Today, the college thrives, and Mayor Tomlinson serves as chairwoman of the college’s board of directors. The Power of the Purse is being used to support the Coweta Community Foundation Women’s and Children’s Fund, and this year’s event chair is Vicki Kaiser, a CCF board member who serves as executive director of Oncology, Support Services and Community Affairs at Piedmont Newnan Hospital. Purses and accessories will again be used in the theme and decor of this event, and there will be a Silent Auction of purses and jewelry as well. All proceeds from the event after expenses will be contributed to the Women’s and Children’s Fund, and nonprofit agencies that support the women and children of Coweta County will be able to apply through the Foundation’s annual grants process to receive support for their programs. The fund will also offer grants to providers who draft wills, powers of attorney, and living wills for single mothers of Coweta County. Doors open at 11 a.m. for Silent Auction bidding, and the program begins at noon and runs to 1 p.m. Seating for this event is limited, so those wishing to attend are advised to purchase tickets early. Individual tickets start at $75 each and may be ordered by calling 770-253-1833 or by visiting cowetafoundation. org and clicking on the “Events” tab.

The Coweta Community Foundation is busy gathering purses for its Fourth Annual Power of the Purse Luncheon coming up Oct. 25. Seated are, from left, board members Laura Benz and Amy Godfrey, and standing are CCF Executive Director Orren Jones and Power of the Purse event chair Vicki Kaiser.

CCF celebrates ribbon cutting for Howard Warner Playground The Howard Warner Playground on Savannah Street in Newnan was officially dedicated during ceremonies on August 27, 2018. Ginger Jackson Queener, a past board chair of the Coweta Community Foundation, told those assembled that the Foundation was approached during the renovation of the Howard Warner School because local officials knew they needed a playground to complete the project. The playground would serve the children of the Chalk Level community, and those attending the new Boys & Girls Club would have a safe place to play with their families. Queener noted that some 20 years earlier, the Coweta Community Foundation was launched as part of the effort to build Kids’ Castle Playground in Newnan, so it was especially fitting that for its 20th anniversary, the Foundation would work on building another playground. “At the time, it was estimated that the cost would be about $70,000,” Queener said. “We expect that including in-kind donations, the project will total approximately $85,000.” Queener said that on the day of the build, volunteers were able to see what this playground was going to mean to the community when a group of siblings rode their bikes to a corner of the street and watched the playground being constructed. “We were able to see the smiles and their eyes light up as it was going up,” she said. “We also know that there will be many friendships and memories that will be made here that will last a lifetime, just as they were many years before, as this playground sits at the original site of the Howard Warner School playground.”

At the ribbon cutting for the Howard Warner Playground on August 27, 2018 are, from left, Lowe's Store Manager Kevin Cole, CCF Board Members Herb Cranford and Cynthia Bennett, Ginger Jackson Queener, CCF Executive Director Orren Jones, and Mike O'Brien of Lowe's, also a CCF board member. At the ceremony, Queener was presented with a crystal peach in honor of her seven years of serving the Foundation and Coweta County through many projects, including the Howard Warner Playground. The project would not have been possible, Queener said, without the support of Coweta’s corporate, civic and community partnerships, which enabled organizers to get grants from Kaboom! and Dr Pepper Snapple Group, which made these partnerships a condition of the grant.


CCF’s Second Annual Farm to Table Event is Nov. 15 The Coweta Community Foundation will host its second annual Farm to Table Event under the stars at the McRitchie-Hollis Museum, located at 74 Jackson St. in Newnan, on November 15, 2018. The dinner will feature Chef Jarrod Reeder of Knife and Stone, and the event runs from 6-10 p.m. For ticket and sponsorship information, please visit, click on the “Events” tab, and select “Calendar.”

Piedmont Cancer Genetics Launches Telegenetics for High-Risk Patients Combining the latest in telemedicine with rapidly expanding knowledge about cancer risk, Piedmont Cancer Genetics has launched a telegenetics program for patients at high risk for breast cancer. One-in-8 women will develop breast cancer in their lifetime, according to the American Cancer Society. However, some women have a higher than average risk based on their family history, genetics or personal medical history, and early detection can dramatically improve survival rates by diagnosing cancers when they are most treatable. “A risk factor is anything that affects your chance of getting a disease, such as breast cancer,” Kelly Teed, board-certified genetic counselor at Piedmont Newnan, said. "Some risk factors for breast cancer cannot be changed, such as having a family history for breast cancer." The Piedmont High Risk Breast Cancer Program provides a detailed breast cancer risk assessment through evaluation and ❦ October 3, 2018 ❦ The SHOPPER ❦ Page 7

Having An Annual Exam With Your Gynecologist Should Be On Your To-Do List

Oluwaseun Suzanne Cole, MD, Ob/Gyn at Piedmont Physicians Obstetrics and Gynecology in Newnan, shares why it is so important for women to have an annual exam each year with their gynecologist. “Your annual visit is a time to discuss any changes or concerns over the past year,” says Dr. Cole. “In addition to a full body exam, we review your family history, any goals for the upcoming year such as starting a family or signs of entering menopause, and other health issues women face.”

Reasons women need a yearly gynecologic exam: examination and develops an early detection plan based on the patient’s risk. “Some risk factors, such as gene mutations passed from a parent, may result in large increases in breast cancer risk, so a patient may need a more comprehensive detection plan,” Teed said. “Other risk factors, such as age or hormone exposure, may only cause modest changes in risk, and therefore may only cause minimal adjustments in a patient’s current detection plan." The program was made possible by a donation from Holland Ware and Faye Hendrix-Ware of Hogansville and employs four genetic counselors who

will offer virtual visits via Piedmont’s telemedicine services while those counselors continue in-person visits. As the only certified member of MD Anderson Cancer Network® in Georgia, Piedmont is committed to transforming healthcare.

• In addition to a yearly physical with your primary care physician, women should also see their gynecologist yearly and take advantage of the knowledge of a specialist.

“By incorporating telemedicine capabilities, we are now able to expand our high-quality, personalized care to even more patients, close to home,” said Linda Van der Merwe, Piedmont’s Executive Director of Clinical Oncology Services.

• If you are 40 or older, you will also need to do an annual mammogram. For those who haven’t reached their fortieth birthday, I stress the importance of monthly self breast exams. “Women know their bodies best and see their breasts every day, whereas I only exam them once a year. If you suspect something is abnormal or notice a lump, get it checked out right away,” advises Dr. Cole.

For more information, or to schedule a consultation, visit or call 678.673.3094.

• Gynecologists can address fertility issues, birth control, cancer prevention, sexually transmitted infections and other women’s health issues. • During the exam, your gynecologist will do a clinical breast exam, a pelvic exam to check your uterus and ovaries, a pap smear, and potentially screen for sexually transmitted diseases. •It is a great time to discuss contraception options, fertility if wanting to have a baby, and breast health.

“For adolescents, I recommend starting to see a gynecologist around age 11 or 12,” said Dr. Cole. “This establishes a baseline for future exams, builds trust with the physician and prepares them for what to expect when getting their period for the first time.” For more women’s health tips, visit Piedmont Physicians Obstetrics and Gynecology Newnan is accepting new patients and is located at 775 Poplar Road, Suite 120, Newnan, Ga. 30265 in the Piedmont Medical Plaza next to Piedmont Newnan Hospital.

The 2018 Open Enrollment Period for Medicare opens on November 1 and runs through December 15. 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. What you may not realize is that there are some services that Medicare does not cover. Let’s begin with the basics. Medicare has two parts – A and B. Part A covers hospital stays, skilled nursing, hospice and some home health services. But keep in mind, this coverage comes with a $1,340 deductible per benefit period and there is a “cap” on the benefits received. Part B covers doctor visits, outpatient services, and medical equipment. Singles who make less than $85,000 a year (based on tax returns from two years prior, so 2016 tax returns) pay $134 a month with a deductible of $183. Most often you will pay 20 per-

cent of services after the deductible is met. There is also a Part D that will pay for prescriptions. And a Part C or a Medicare Advantage Plan which will cover expenses that Part A, B and D do not cover. But there are many expenses that are not covered under Medicare. Routine vision checks, eyeglasses, and contacts are not covered. Hearing Aid costs are not covered. Medicare also does not pay for routine teeth cleaning, x-rays, fillings or root canals. It does not pay for dentures or gum or oral surgery. Custodial Care – which includes non-medical home care, assisted living and nursing home care – is not covered by Medicare. Neither are Chiropractic treatments nor acupuncture. If you are spending your “gold-

en” 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 out of the U.S. and you can purchase a Medigap Policy that can help pay up to $50,000 of medical expenses while you are outside of the country. 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 in order for your Medicare to kick in for the rehabilitation. Always ask your hospital to admit you. 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.

Our Passion for Pumpkin All things pumpkin are getting their well-deserved time in the spotlight this month, and I remain an eager and adventurous fan, although I did think it was a joke when I heard about pumpkin spice dog treats. Turns out, it’s a thing. Who knew? This year, a grocery store display persuaded me to try Quaker’s new Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal (quite tasty), and I’ve been tempted by but have so far resisted some of the more decadent treats, including the new Ghirardelli chocolate squares in the Pumpkin Spice Caramel flavor. I was scarred by the Pumpkin Pie Kit Kat bars I tried last year—some things, you simply don’t mess with—so I’m skipping the chocolates for the time being. But I will never tire of cooking and baking with pumpkin each fall. From soups and pies to quick breads, pumpkin truly seems to spice up whatever it touches. And clearly, I am not alone in my pumpkin passion.

According to, our fondness for this fall flavor has resulted in booming business for pumpkin-flavored products. By August 25, sales of these pumpkin products had already reached more than $6.9 million, up nearly 10 percent in revenue over last year. (Sales of pumpkin-flavored dog food are up 123.7 percent over last year, in case you wondered.) One pumpkin product I can always bypass, however, is a boxed mix for pumpkin bread. It’s just too easy to make a loaf from scratch. Here’s a simple recipe for pumpkin bread that you can make extra flavorful by drizzling a little pumpkin glaze on top. I love how glazes seem to make a loaf of quick bread extra moist, and this one is perfect for enjoying with your favorite hot beverage this fall.



Pumpkin-Walnut Bread with Pumpkin Gla • 2 cups all-purpose flour • 1-1/4 cups granulated sugar • 2 teaspoons baking powder • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda • 3/4 teaspoon salt • 1-1/4 teaspoons cinnamon and nutmeg • 1/4 teaspoon each of ginger, cloves, • 1/3 cup chopped walnuts • 1 cup canned pumpkin • 2 large eggs, room temperature • 1/2 cup vegetable oil • 1/3 cup buttermilk • 2 teaspoons vanilla

I know I’ve mentioned this print before, but trust me, it’s a must have. If animal print is outside your comfort zone then go for a small bag, scarf or even a bracelet. You will feel fabulous and trendy too.

Fluffing your home for Fall A quick way to get in the mood for fall is with candles. Newnan Mercantile on Newnan’s downtown square carries Park Hill candles and has perfect flavors like Autumn Gathering and Pumpkin Bourbon.

One other easy way to transform your home quickly is by creating a fall tablescape. You can do any look you want for very little cost or even invest in glass pumpkins as seen in this picture and use them for years to come. Create whatever look you want from elegant, rustic to fun depending on the age of your children and lifestyle.

Home Depot

C.S. Toggery

Sweaters are a staple this Fall I spoke with Gracie Martin at C.S. Toggery and she said that oversized fluffy comfy sweaters are hot this fall. Those sweaters will make quite a statement paired with leggings, cowboy boots or even fun hot pink knee high rain boots. Wearing these sweaters with high heels can also create a slim look when cinched with a great belt. And this is a trend that works for women of all ages.

Positive Preferential Parking Everyone wants to find the closest parking spot when we go to the store. But many stores are making sure those prime spots are set aside. Specialized parking for the handicapped have been around for decades, but there are some new trends, like those for pregnant women. The local Home Depot now has parking spaces reserved up close to the store for combat wounded veterans. What a simple yet awesome way to honor those who fought for us.

Oversized Handbags Big oversized handbags are in. But in my opinion, were they ever really out? I, along with many others, think they are yet another timeless accessory. My favorite is the bag in a bag. You carry your essentials in a smaller purse within the big bag. And hey, even if you gain weight, those handbags will still fit. ❦ October 3, 2018 ❦ The SHOPPER ❦ Page 11

Local students named to state council From Coweta County Schools Two Coweta County School System students have been named to the Georgia School Superintendent’s 2018-19 Student Advisory Council. Aaliyah Phillips, of East Coweta High School, and Jessica Hicks, of the Central Educational Center, were both chosen for the state-level council this week.

Phillips is a junior at East Coweta High who is a member of the track team and several clubs.

Abby’s Angels is teaming up with Grady Hospital’s Injury Prevention Program to get teen drivers to pledge to drive safely. For several upcoming local high school football games, Grady will have their distracted driving simulator and drunk goggles for students and parents to try. Grady will have giveaways and educational material as well. Abby’s Angels will have a banner for each school. These banners will be there for students and parents to sign and pledge that they will drive with safety, responsibility, and distraction free. Those who sign and pledge will receive a raffle ticket. Drawings will be held at the games for FREE car washes, oil changes, gas cards, Starbucks, Chick-fil-a, and Texas Roadhouse gift cards. These banners will then go to each school to hang in a visual central location all year as a reminder of their promise and pledge.

Abby’s Angels will also have a Safe Driving Selfie Station for the students to take photos with their friends and are encouraged to post on their social media and tag Abby’s Angels Foundation … #allforabby #abbysangelsfoundation #1Life1Choice #idrive2live #handsfreegeorgia #fridaynightlight

A distracted teenager drove through a red light, smashing into the side of the Bacho van on Dec. 22, 2012. Abby and her father Stephen were air-flighted to Atlanta hospitals. The others were taken to Piedmont Newnan Hospital. Stephen was in an induced coma for several weeks and has since recovered well, but Abby was taken off life support on Christmas Day. The family donated her organs. She was 9 years old. Check out website for more information …

The Staging Life

JC MEGHRIAN “Realty with Integrity” If you want to buy, sell or lease, JC Meghrian has the tools necessary to make it happen.

“Porching It” Fall is here and with it comes the promise of some cooler days and evenings. If you are fortunate enough to have a porch or patio, you have an extra living space that is most enjoyable this time of year.

Nan Johnston

Providing excellence in residential and commercial real estate purchases, leasing, and investment strategies for individuals and businesses. JC Meghrian, REALTOR®

Layering with outdoor rugs, adding colorful pillows, warm soft throws to wrap in on cooler evenings and stringing some outdoor patio string lights around the perimeter will create a space that will make it difficult to give up for the night. If you have room for a dining set, it’s the perfect time to enjoy meals outdoors and hopefully the bugs won’t be pestering you like the summertime bugs. Extra bonuses are outdoor fireplaces or fire pits and a flat screen tv with surround sound for ballgames, movie nights or enjoying your favorite music. Decorating your outdoor space for the real estate market is a smart effort on a home sellers part in that it creates perceived value to a buyer and shows them the extra living space available, making your asking price

more attractive to them.

ome Helpers of GA & AL continues to recognize and celebrate the relationship between caregivers and the families they serve in 2018. As people age, there are times when a little help, a little companionship, a little reassurance helps. Being independent does not mean doing everything by yourself. Being independent means being in control of your lifestyle, your schedule and the way in which your needs are met. Home Helpers of GA & AL will pay tribute throughout 2018 to its Exceptional Caregivers – who bring life, enjoyment, and independence, to their clients daily.

This year’s event will highlight craft brews from across the state of Georgia and is sponsored by LaGrange Grocery and Abide Brewing. Complimentary refreshments, retail sales specials and other treats will be made available for all participating attendees.


Thoughts on Caregiving ... MARIYA RAYCHEVA – “Being a caregiver can be difficult. Sometimes it can cause a lot of emotional stress. However the power of a smile, a kind word, or even the smallest act of caring can turn a life around.That’s what I love about my job, and I’m happy to be a part of Home Helpers family.” Client Mrs. Gough (left), Caregiver Mariya Raycheva

Come to Coweta Master Gardener Extension Volunteers Fall Plant Sale on Oct. 13 Celebrate fall by adding new plants to your yard or garden. The Coweta Master Gardener Extension Volunteers have been hard at work in the greenhouse to produce a bumper crop of perennials, shrubs and trees for sale on Saturday, Oct. 13. “Fall is the best time to plant trees and shrubs, so their roots can get a head start growing over the winter,” says MGEV Marci Moore, chairman of the plant sale committee. “Planting trees and shrubs in the spring doesn’t give the plants enough time to develop strong root systems before summer’s hot temperatures so the perfect time to plant is now.” Moore says the sale will include about 2,800 plants with a nice variety of perennials and shrubs for both sun and shade. Perennials include iris (bearded, Siberian, Louisiana, Japanese); daylilies in a variety of colors; rudbeckia; Stokes aster; ferns; and Lenten rose. Shrubs include several varieties of hydrangea, butterfly bushes (several colors), purple and white beautyberry, spirea, azalea and lespedeza. Trees include Chinese pistache, maples, crepe myrtles and river birches. The sale will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 13, at the MGEV greenhouse, 255 Pine Road, Newnan, behind the University of Georgia Extension Office. While some cardboard boxes will be available, shoppers are encouraged to bring boxes to carry home their plant finds. The fall plant sale is a fund-raiser for the MGEVs, who present free educational horticultural programs for residents of Coweta County year-round. Funds also are used to support programs for the Coweta County 4-H, the Newnan Boys and Girls Club and other youth activities. “Not only are the plants a great deal, but they have been grown in Coweta County and are already acclimated to our environment,” says Moore. “Plus you can give your landscape a boost while supporting horticulture and youth programs in Coweta County.”

Sports Related Concussion with a concussion or TBI require physical and cognitive rest to let the brain heal. With appropriate medical attention, 80-90% of concussion symptoms resolve in seven to ten days.

A concussion is a type of mild traumatic brain injury (TBI). It can be caused by a blow to the head or body, which may include contact with another player, the ground or a piece of equipment such as a baseball bat or lacrosse stick. A concussion is a reaction by the brain to a force transmitted to the head from an impact or blow occurring anywhere on the body. Overall, a concussion results from the brain moving back and forth or twisting rapidly inside the boney interior of the skull. This type of injury results in a temporary loss of normal brain function. It is generally thought that concussion diagnosis involve a loss of consciousness. However, data shows that 90% of most diagnosed concussions do not involve loss of consciousness. The signs and symptoms of a concussion can occur immediately or over a period of time. Students/athletes with concussions may display very different symptoms and these symptoms are usually resolved over a period of time ranging from a few days to several weeks. In some cases, persistent symptoms can last beyond the generally accepted time frame and would be classified as a prolonged concussion. Approximately 10% of athletes have persistent signs and symptoms of concussion lasting more than two weeks. Symptoms of a concussion may include: Amnesia; confusion or appearing dazed; headache or head pressure; loss of consciousness; balance difficulty or dizziness, or clumsy movements; double vision, blurry vision; sensitivity to light and/or sound; nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite; irritability, sadness or other changes in personality; feeling sluggish, foggy, light-headed; concentration or focusing problems; slowed reaction time, drowsiness; fatigue, sleep issues; loss of smell or taste. Concussion management depends on early recognition and appropriate treatment to reduce recovery time, prevent complications and safely return the patient to sport activity. Students who have been diagnosed

The physical therapy treatments may address any or all of the components of concussion. Those can include include vestibular/balance, ocular/visual, cognitive, post traumatic migraine, cervical spine and potential anxiety/emotion/mood changes. Cognitive rest is as important as physical rest. Student athletes should avoid activities that require concentration or mental activity such as: computers, smartphones, video games, television, driving, texting, reading/ writing, homework, test taking, loud noises and or bright light during the initial recovery phase. As treatment progresses, these activities are reintroduced to daily activities. Return of symptoms would guide the rate of treatment progression. Initially, the student may only be able to attend school for a few hours a day or may only require rest breaks during the day. These would be considered classroom accommodations. There should be a gradual return to academic activities just as for physical activities. For the student, the bright lights and loud noises such as walking down a busy, crowded hallway may trigger a recurrence of the concussion symptoms. Physical activity is reintroduced in a similar fashion as cognitive activity. Athletes/ students are progressed through activity levels that increase in duration and intensity. There is a set protocol for the return to competition that all the Coweta county high schools have implemented and adhere to. The progression is carefully monitored and advanced on an individual basis. Concussions and head injuries (TBI) may never be completely eliminated from sporting activities or events. However, with ongoing research, improved equipment design and knowledge of athletic actions/activities, we have a better understanding on how to evaluate, diagnose and treat and prevent concussions.

Money-saving tips on energy, groceries and holiday planning The fall season has arrived, and it’s a great time to reevaluate your spending and find some ways to save money. Making small adjustments to your energy consumption, grocery shopping and even holiday shopping plans can keep lots of money in your wallet. Try these tips to save money this fall: Energy Saving Open the windows. As the temperatures get cooler outside, open your windows to let in fresh air. This is cheaper than using fans or air conditioning. Schedule maintenance for heating systems. When fall begins, schedule maintenance services for your water heater and other heating systems. Make sure this equipment is operating properly and efficiently before cold weather arrives and repair services are busy with other customers. Weatherize your home. Get your home ready for winter by looking for leaks around windows and doors. Use caulk to seal gaps and cracks where air and water can seep in. Also, cover windows with plastic to avoid cold drafts. Change your filters. Change the filters in your heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems during the fall.

save money on your grocery bill. During the fall, shop for apples, pears, pumpkins, sweet potatoes, grapes, mushrooms, figs, cauliflower, brussel sprouts and winter squash.

Dirty and clogged filters will raise utility bills and damage your HVAC system. Lower water heater temperature. Though many manufacturers set water heater thermostats at 140 degrees Fahrenheit, the U.S. Department of Energy recommends turning down the temperature of your water heater to 120 degrees Fahrenheit. Lowering the temperature will use less energy, reduce the dangers of scalding and also slow mineral buildup and corrosion in your water heater and pipes. Grocery Shopping Plan your meals. Get organized and plan your meals ahead of time for the week to avoid eating out. Write down a menu and make sure you have all the necessary ingredients. Use your crock pot to make big, warm meals, such as stew and chili, and freeze the leftovers for later. Buy food in season. Buying fruits and vegetables that are in season will help you

Holiday Planning Trade costumes. Instead of buying expensive Halloween costumes for your children, cut costs by exchanging costumes with your neighbors or family members. Save for holiday gifts. Fall is the perfect time to start setting money aside for holiday gifts. Determine how much you need to save by making a list of the people that you’d like to shop for and how much you want to spend on each gift. Then, figure out the dollar amount you can put aside each week, which could be achieved by cutting back in other areas, to meet your goal. This will help you avoid getting into credit card debt. Plan to shop early. Don’t wait until the peak shopping season to start buying holiday gifts. Begin shopping now so you can take your time to find the best deals and gifts for your loved ones. Getting a head start on your holiday shopping will prevent you from being rushed, spending more than you budgeted and having fewer options to choose from because items are

sold out. Make rules for gift exchanges. Instead of trying to buy gifts for all of your family members, friends and coworkers, which can get very expensive, talk with your loved ones about setting limits for your gift exchanges. For a particular group, perhaps you could draw names so that each person is only expected to buy a gift for one family member, friend or coworker, instead of everyone. This will reduce your holiday spending tremendously. Take advantage of layaway. If you’ve found items that you’d like to purchase for holiday gifts but don’t have the cash right now, consider taking advantage of layaway programs offered by some retailers, such as Walmart. Layaway allows shoppers to set aside merchandise in the store until they can pay off the balance and take it home. Customers make a down payment and scheduled payments until the bill is paid in full. All items are not eligible for layaway. Have potluck holiday meals. For fall or holiday gatherings, plan a menu and ask guests to bring a certain dish or beverage. Potluck holiday meals help keep costs low for hosts and prevent them from having to buy all of the food, desserts and beverages themselves.

The perfect location for wedding receptions, fundraisers, business meetings, banquets and trade shows. Come see the hidden gem people are talking about!

Q. I have always wanted to plant flowering bulbs

but have never taken the time. When is the best time to plant them?


Spacing will vary from 1 to 2 inches to as much as several feet. When spacing bulbs, consider not only how much space each plant needs, but also how frequently it will be dug and divided. Also, consider how they will look in the landscape when they bloom. Plant the bulbs

Here in Georgia, October is a great time to plant spring-flowering bulbs. In fact, they can be planted anytime from October through late December. It’s best to wait until temperatures are consistently below 60 degrees at night though. It looks like that might be late October this year since summer temperatures are hanging around longer than expected. If you purchase bulbs but can’t plant them right away, then store them at around 60-65 degrees F. in a dry area. Temperatures above 70 degrees F. may damage the flower buds.

Planting depth and spacing are very important to the success of bulbs. Planting depth (from top of bulb to soil surface) should be two to three times the greatest diameter for bulbs 2 inches or more in diameter and three to four times the greatest diameter for smaller bulbs.

To purchase 8-11” Catfish Must Bring Own Container and Water (too big to bag)

Great question! Tulips are my favorite flowering bulbs, but I too can never seem to find the time to get them planted.

Also consider locating beds and plants where they will be aesthetically pleasing and effectively arranged in the landscape.

Most spring-flowering bulbs prefer light shade to full sunshine, so find a site that provides at least 6 to 10 hours of direct light per day. Insufficient light usually results in poor flowering, but too much light will bleach the flowers and foliage of some species.

Thurs., Oct. 11th • 4-5p.m.


Ask your County Agent

Since we are prone to have mild winters in our area, you may want to pre-cool certain bulbs since most spring-flowering bulbs require a 12-16 week cold period. To do this, you can store the bulbs in ventilated packages in the bottom of your refrigerator at 40-50 degrees F. before planting. Check with your bulb supplier to determine whether or not the bulbs you purchase have been pre-cooled. If not, then you may need to give them a cold treatment.

It’s Fish Day

carefully and don’t broadcast them as they could be bruised or injured. Plant the bulbs upright (rhizomes and tuberous roots are usually planted on their sides), and press the soil firmly around them. Water the beds thoroughly to help settle the soil. If you haven’t soil tested in a while, then go ahead and get a soil test done before you plant so that you can add any lime or fertilizer prior to planting. The soil pH should be between 6.0 and 6.8 for most bulbs. Also, good drainage is essential, so choose an area that doesn’t hold water too long. When in doubt, dig a hole about a foot deep and fill it with water. If the water drains away in 8-10 hours, then that should be just fine for most bulbs. For more information about planting flowering bulbs, contact the Coweta County Extension office at 770-2542620 or and ask for the publication, “Flowering Bulbs for Georgia Gardens”.

The properties are assessed according to a combination of soil type, productivity and a reduced fair market value factor. This typically results in a significant reduction of property taxes.

Landowners can re-enroll after 10 years if they wish to remain in CUVA. The CUVA program is administered by each county’s tax assessor’s office. Requirements per county may be different, but typically a minimum of 10 acres is required. Some counties have recently increased this to 25 acres. No more than 2,000 acres may be enrolled in CUVA by one non-industrial, private landowner. Foreign citizens and foreign corporations are not eligible to enroll.

Conservation uses are something else you need to consider when purchasing acreage or a home on acreage. There are significant penalties for landowners who break the conservation use before the end of the 10year period. Owners who break the conservation use covenant must pay back to the taxing authorities TWICE the savings they received over the life of the covenant to the point it was breached, plus any applicable interest. If the property is sold during the covenant period, the new landowner must agree to continue the covenant or be responsible for penalties and taxes due if the covenant is breached under their ownership ( If you are buying land, a farm, or a home on acreage, one of the first things you should check is if the property is a conservation use. Your Realtor can place language in your purchase and sale contract that will protect you in the event there is a conservation use. CUVA is a great way to save money on taxes. Acknowledgement and agreement of CUVA, in writing, by the buyer and seller, is very important in a real estate transaction. You do not want to be stuck paying the penalty on breaching the conservation use. (Jess Barron is an Associate Broker with Lindseys, Inc. Realtors and President of the Newnan-Coweta Board of Realtors.)

… Where film buffs get their fix with Jonathan W. Hickman Arthouse Corner: A Star is Born (review)

Streaming Selects:

What to Binge: The Haunting of Hill House (October 12) - Mike Flanagan is the horror director of the moment. His success with Netflix’ “Gerald’s Game” served as a perfect audition for this 10-episode series based on the Shirley Jackson novel, which was adapted back in 1963 in the Robert Wise film “The Haunting.” The trailer for this “Hill House” teases both creepy horror elements and complex drama, as a family deals with personal addictions and quite possibly a house that is out to get them. Cast includes the always fantastic Carla Gugino, the star of Flanagan’s “Gerald’s Game.” Worth Checking Out: Making a Murderer: Part 2 (October 19) - The major splash for Netflix in 2015, which became a cultural happening, “Making a Murderer” was a water cooler sensation. But since the show’s release, questions surfaced necessitating, for good or bad, a second chapter. Filmmakers Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos return to the scene of the crime and continue to cover the legal battles of Steven Avery and his younger co-defendant Brendan Dassey. The question this time around is whether viewers will embrace the story for another sure to be grueling experience. What Movie to Watch: The Shining (1980) - Stephen King material is hotter than ever these days, with 2017’s “It” becoming the top-grossing R-rated horror film of all time (more than $700 million worldwide). And while King was reportedly not happy with Stanley Kubrick’s 1980 adaptation of his best-seller, it has become a massive cult phenomenon even finding its way into Stephen Spielberg’s “Ready Player One,” just this year. With the highly anticipated sequel “Doctor Sleep” being shot locally, “The Shining” is worth another watch. What to Avoid: Angel Eyes (2001) - Back in the early 2000s, Jennifer Lopez was on a roll. “Angel Eyes” was an opportunity for her to tackle dramatic material within a complex, if also contrived, narrative. And the performance is fine, but the film is lacking. In the movie, Lopez plays a police officer who forms an awkward relationship with a mysterious man (Jim Caviezel), who is emotionally damaged by trauma.

What to Binge (well kinda): Into the Dark: The Body (October 5) - This monthly anthology series takes a more restrained approach—the anti-binge. Releasing but one episode a month, the inspiration for these dark tales comes from the holiday in the month of its release. Therefore, episode one, clocking in at a feature film running time, is set on Halloween night, when a hitman is forced to transport a body and folks think that he’s really got one killer costume.

What Movie to Watch: RBG - Sure to be nominated for numerous best documentary film awards for this year, “RBG” is an informative and emotional biography of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the Supreme Court’s trail-blazing justice. The focus on Ginsburg’s greatest court victories before she made her way to the top bench is the heart of the film. Note that there is a narrative Ginsburg bio-pic titled “On the Basis of Sex” that is slated for a December release. Worth Checking Out: Results - Independent film director Andrew Bujalski gave us the very solid comedy drama “Support the Girls” a couple months ago, and “Results” is another good example of his work. Guy Pearce and Cobie Smulders star in this quirky romantic comedy. What to Avoid: Daddy’s Home 2 - If you didn’t get enough of the Mark Wahlberg/Will Ferrell cartoon “Daddy’s Home” in 2015, then you might be able to stomach another go round. Of note: Mel Gibson and John Lithgow play a couple of diametrically opposed fathers in this tepid sequel. Watching the trailer is enough for this one.

Maybe not exactly an arthouse offering, this one will undoubtedly factor into the end of the year awards races. And for Lady Gaga, who was already a household name for her voice, she steps out fully, as both a musician and an actress delivering an award-worthy performance. “A Star is Born” is Bradley Cooper's reimagining of the famous Hollywood property that has been made four times now. In this telling, Cooper (also writing and directing here) plays alcoholic country rock superstar Jackson Maine, who discovers singing talent Ally (Lady Gaga) and gives birth to her career. The two fall in love, but when Ally’s career takes off and Maine’s crashes, the question is whether their relationship will survive. “A Star is Born” is grand Hollywood entertainment featuring terrific musical and acting performances.

Theatrical Teaser: Halloween (October 19)

What to Binge: Mr. Robot: Season 3 - With the popular series ending in 2019 with season 4, and if you missed it when it aired last year, Prime subscribers have an opportunity to catch up. The series starring Rami Malek and Christian Slater is about a super hacker who becomes involved in a global conspiracy. It’s an inventive and edgy thriller worth block viewing. What Movie to Watch: Carrie (1976) - This is potentially binge-worthy, because, in this spooky month, Amazon is releasing the 1999 kind of sequel to this 1976 take on the the Stephen King novel that started his amazing career. And the same material served up another “Carrie” in 2013, directed by “Boys Don’t Cry” helmer Kimberly Peirce, starring Chloë Grace Moretz. While that film was okay, for my money, Sissy Spacek’s performance as the telekinetic title character in Brian De Palma’s version makes this one best of the three films, and it’s definitely worth revisiting. What to Avoid: An American Werewolf in Paris - It’s too bad that John Landis couldn’t have directed and wrote the sequel to his truly superb 1981 film “An American Werewolf in London.” And while “Paris,” the long overdue revisiting of the ideas introduced by Landis, isn’t a really terrible film, there are far better movies this month to watch (like the “Carrie” sequel mentioned above). Let’s hope that John’s talented son Max Landis gets it right with his reboot of “London” that has been announced.

While “A Star is Born” is sure to have legs at the box office, this direct sequel to the seminal 1978 slasher film is likely to have one of the biggest October weekends. And while there have been several sequels to John Carpenter’s famous 1978 horror entry “Halloween,” few of them were able to capture the film’s scary pulse. Word is that this sequel is the real deal. In “Halloween (2018),” original final girl Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis, reprising her iconic role) returns for one last confrontation with the evil killing machine Michael Myers. Expect old-fashioned scares, with some newfangled sensibilities, in this October shocker. (Jonathan W. Hickman is an entertainment attorney, filmmaker, college professor, and novelist.
