Yamaha Hiring Over 100 New Employees in Newnan

From Special Reports

“The enviable worldwide reputation that Yamaha has earned is a result of the quality, reliability and durability built into each of our products.

Yamaha Motor Manufacturing Corporation of America, (YMMC) is pleased to announce it plans to immediately hire over 100 new employees to assist in many assembly line functions to help keep pace with the growing demand for all Yamaha recreational products assembled at its Newnan facility. Based in Coweta County, Yamaha Motor Manufacturing Corp of America (YMMC) designs and assembles four key product lines including Golf Cars, All Terrain Vehicles (ATV’s), Personal Watercraft and Recreational Off-road Vehicles (ROVs), or what many refer to as Side-by-Side vehicles. “We have learned over the last few months that people all around the country have discovered just how much fun you can have with family and friends with all of our outdoor products while maintaining social distance,” said Bob Brown, Vice President, Finance and Operations Support. “This fact has increased demand for all the products we assemble here at YMMC. As a result, we are looking for eager new talent to immediately join our team and help us assemble products which create a lifetime of exciting and memorable experiences for so many customers.”


Real Estate

Contingency Contracts & Kick-Out Clauses in Real Estate has been an essential partner for the community for over 30 years,” said Coweta County Development Authority President, Trae Westmoreland. “Industrial and economic growth tend to go hand in hand. We are excited to see increases in labor productivity and standard of living in such unprecedented times.” “The Coweta County Development Authority is elated to hear that Yamaha Motor Manufacturing Corporation of America is creating jobs in our community,” said Coweta County Development Authority Chairman, Ronnie Clotfelter. “They have been an integral stakeholder for many years providing a solid foundation for Coweta County.” Yamaha is looking to fill open positions for assemblers, material handlers, welders, certified forklift operators and more. Additional information about available positions and how to apply can be found online at www.yamaha-motor-georgia.com.

Contingencies are a normal part of real estate contracts. Realtors typically see contingencies based on the buyer’s loan being approved, as well as the property appraising. However, real estate agents are seeing more and more purchase and sale agreements contingent upon the buyer’s current home selling. This can be a very stressful task, to time the sale of a buyer’s current home with the sale of their new home. In large part this increase in contingency contracts is due to Coweta County having such a strong real estate market. People are hesitant to list their home for sale before looking for a new home, because properties are selling so quickly. It would not be a good idea to sell your home without having anywhere to go. Many buyers are identifying a home to purchase first, then listing their home second. A contingency contract hurts your negotiation power. Contingency buyers are having to compete with cash purchasers and purchasers who do not need to sell their homes first in order to buy. From the seller’s point of view, why would you take on a contract that carries the risk of the buyer’s current home not selling? Depending on where the purchase’s current house is though, the risk can be small. A home in a very popular area or neighborhood will likely sell fast. The conversation and knowledge shared between the listing agent and the buyer’s agent is critical in these contingency contracts and negotiations. Everyone needs to be on the same page with realistic expectations. Buyers with a place to stay in between residences are in a stronger position. Their negotiation power is not affected by the contingency of their current home selling. Not everyone has this luxury. Also, most people do not wish to move twice. A “kickout clause” is often part of the contingency agreement. This gives the seller an option to take on another contract that would replace their current contingency agreement. Kickout clauses often have 24 hour to 72 hour time windows. If a seller receives another offer, the buyer with the contingency will then have 24 to 72 hours to drop their contingency and move forward with the contract. If the contingency buyer elects not to move forward, then the new contract would take the place of the contingency contract. This is one of the more complex situations in our business. An experienced real estate agent with knowledge and experience on contingencies is very important in this market. A skilled listing agent is imperative as it is critical to price and market the home correctly in these circumstances. Make sure you consider hiring a capable Realtor in these situations.

Caregivers should seek help instead of serving up excuses As we enter our 7th month into the “year of COVID”, many have found their caregiving role has been expanded or maybe has begun sooner than they thought it would. And while back in March, you thought this extra role would only last a week or two…a month tops, and now there is no clear end in sight. You may be beginning to hear comments from friends and family members saying that you look tired or seem stressed. But you just ignore the comments. And you find that you are making excuses to not only them, but to yourself. Some of the best excuse-driven folks I know, second to the student with homework due, are caregivers. Caregivers often give excuses that allow them to avoid getting help. I have heard the excuses; they just don’t cut it. Excuse No. 1: “I don’t need a break.” Even God took a break on the 7th day! All of us need a break: time to recharge or rest. Caregivers are no different. Excuse No. 2: “I don’t have anyone in town to help.” Thanks to our wonderful world of technology, help does not have to live in your town.

Senior Living Advice with BETH DOW, Certified Senior Advisor

Family members that live out of town can help by ordering groceries, prepared meals, and personal hygiene items right to your door. They can handle scheduling medical appointments and schedule in-home care. For that matter, they may even help pay for in-home care since they are not able to provide care themselves. Anything, no matter how small it may seem, that you can take off your plate is a step in the right direction. Excuse No. 3: “I can’t afford help.” Help may not be as expensive as you think. If your care recipient is a veteran or the spouse of a veteran, they may qualify for the Aid and Attendance Benefit. Medicaid also pays for home care. And never underestimate the willingness of friends or other family members to give a few hours of their time to give you a break. Before you discount getting help, con-




tact home care agencies like Home Helpers, and you may be surprised at what you can afford. Excuse No. 4: “No one will look after her/him like I will.” I had 24hour care for my mom the last 6 years of her life. I know without a doubt, that they provided better care for her than I could ever give her. Her care was shared by caregivers that got breaks. When they came in for a shift, they were fresh and ready for the day, not already exhausted. Remember the best care you can give a loved one may be care that is not provided by you. If you are a caregiver, survive this journey. Ask for help. If you are a friend or family member to a caregiver, don’t let them continue to make excuses. Thirty percent of caregivers provide care for less than 1 year. Twenty-one percent for more than 5 years, and 15 percent of caregivers provide care for more than 10 years. This is a journey ... a journey, you can survive with help. Beth Dow is a Dementia and Alzheimer’s Educator, CAEd, Geriatric Care Manager and Certified Senior Advisor.

Notes from Jackson Street

Let’s say I posted the following on Facebook: “Remember what Abraham Lincoln said, don’t believe everything you read on the Internet.”

LBD: yes please, what are you putting on it?

Here is what will happen. Half the Internet will go: “LIAR!! It was Thomas Jefferson. You’re the Antichrist. Your mother hates you and your children want to disown you. People like you are destroying America. Die, just die, you fool.

LBD: I would like mustard instead

Me: just mayo and ground pepper, we are out of cranberry sauce. Me: okay LBD: and lettuce ...

And so on and so forth. I don’t know about you, but after being on Facebook for a while, I feel I need to go take a shower.

Me: okay

You can’t even post a photo of your cat without someone saying “why did you post that colored cat.” “Why does he have brown eyes, do you have a problem with blue eyes.”

Me: ....

And so on and so forth. Case in point. A couple of days ago we posted one of our occasional factoids graphs regarding something with COVID-19. We mentioned how ironic it was that the same day the Coweta County School System announced the restart of face-to-face school was the same day Coweta reported the highest number of new COVID-19 cases. “I’m convinced these poor folks don’t know how to read graphs and data. It’s fine if you don’t, just maybe don’t post such wildly inaccurate information online.” That was pretty much the view of the “you’re a liar group.”

LBD: and sliced purple onions LBD: and could you toast it? Me: Are you freaking ... mumble, mumble LBD: and could you put it on that stone mountain bread? Me: sigh (Halfway through making sandwich, she calls me on the phone) LBD: could I have some water? Me: Sure

Full disclosure: yeah, we just made it up. Just like we do every day when we report these numbers. Someone finally caught us.

LBD: With ice ...

Honestly, I am seeing fewer and fewer facts on Facebook. I am seeing an awful lot of “my way or the highway” but said in much harsher tones.

Me: grumble, grumble

Everything is now black and white. Left or right. We have lost the middle ground. We have lost the grey areas. We can’t even agree to disagree anymore. I hate to think of the friendships being lost. I think we all need a Facebook quarantine, although we will continue to post the daily COVID numbers because we know it is important. So without Facebook to talk about, how about sandwiches?

LBD: And lime ...? (Take up sandwich along with some grapes. I did NOT peel the grapes. I also threw on a couple of slices of mozzarella because, well yes, I’m that guy.) LBD: OH, this is wonderful, it’s way too much for me. Me: are you kidding me? You said you wanted a sandwich! LBD: did you toast the bread? Me: of course

True “more than the Lincoln quote” story: So, the Little Black Dress, aka The Paper Girl, aka Corby Winters, broke her heel. Something that is medically, apparently, very rare. And she was wearing tennis shoes, another rare occurrence, and not heels. She was born in heels.

LBD: Are you sure? ( as she starts to scratch the bread to make sure.) Me: I am so out of here. Now wasn’t that better than reading Facebook?

Anyway, she cannot put any weight on said heel and is in a cast. We, that being me and the two SONS of Thunder still at home, have the honor of waiting on her hand and foot. Sometimes it can get ...

Stay safe, practice social distancing and wear a mask.

Me: I’m making a turkey sandwich. I call upstairs, being the awesome husband I am, and say, “would you like a turkey sandwich?”

Fill Your Yard with Trees, Shrubs and Perennials Now through October 17th at the Coweta County Master Gardener Extension Volunteers’ Live Vendor Booth After months of planning, the Coweta County Master Gardener Extension Volunteers (MGEVs) are ready to offer their plants for sale in the safest manner possible during the ongoing pandemic. Volunteers will be selling plants each Wednesday and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Coweta County Farmers Market located at the Expo Center at 197 Temple Avenue, Newnan. The market is open for senior citizen shopping between 9 to 10 a.m. and others may shop between 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. MGEVs are eager to provide this opportunity to the community and will be on site to answer questions about the plants. Please note that for the safety of the volunteers and the public, social distancing is required and face masks are requested. There will be one-way entry and one-way exit points at the venue, so please pay close attention to all signs upon your arrival at the market. For those who have attended MGEV plant sales in the past, this will look a lot different compared to previous events, but the high quality of the plants remains the same. Trees, shrubs and perennials will be available with different varieties each week due to limited space at the market. All plants for sale have been propagated or grown by MGEVs. Funds from the MGEV plant sale support UGA Extension-Coweta County community education programs and fund agriculture scholarships and Coweta 4-H. For more information about the sale, please contact UGA Extension-Coweta County at 770.254.2620 Ext. 8308 or visit http://ugaextension.org/coweta or on Facebook, https://www.facebook.com/ CowetaCountyMasterGardenerExtensionVolunteers.

The Staging Life

with Nan Johnston

If you have been in your house for more than 10 years, you may want to go over this list too and ask someone that will give you an honest answer about whether or not you need to update your home. Or feel free to contact …

How Long Is Your Exit Plan? We have become one of my very own clients. We, (I say we, but mostly me) have a 5 year exit plan to get our home prepared for the real estate market. That’s not to say that we are moving in 5 years, but our house is almost 20 years old, it needs updating and if we are going to invest in the improvements to make it more appealing for the market, I want to be able to enjoy some of the fruits of our labor now, not make improvements and then have to leave them. What’s in the 5 year plan? • Landscaping • Water run off control • Improved Dog pen area • Update Kitchen countertops

Encouraging Words September 2020 …

The Times They are a changin’ In 1964, a young (25) Bob Dylan wrote the iconic anti-war/civil rights song, “The times they are a changin’.” Fifty-six years later, the “Times” seem to be changing at a rapid and uncomfortable rate again. And that will probably never change. Society “is” divided; some are angry, others are hurting financially and physically, students, churches and businesses are “Zooming” from home. And to top it off, we can’t even see our favorite team in person for crying out loud! In order to prosper in these times, we could consider changing the way we think – certainly not our core values and beliefs, but changing the way we respond to what seems to be the new normal in our thoughts and ideas, adding value to ourselves and others. As Leo Tolstoy put it, “Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself!” In John Maxwell’s book, “Thinking for a Change”, he lists six good reasons for changing the way we THINK (and respond to situations). Changing your thinking changes your beliefs. Good thoughts and actions can never produce bad results – bad thoughts and actions can never produce good results. Changing your beliefs changes your expectations. The first and most important step toward success is the expectation that we “can” succeed.

Microwave ovens can be a useful appliance for you and your family. However, microwaves can cook unevenly and leave cold spots where bacteria can survive. Precautions must be taken to keep your food safe. Below are tips to safely use your microwave oven to prevent foodborne illness. Cooking in the Microwave •

Food items should be arranged evenly in a covered dish with some liquid added if needed. Cover the dish with plastic wrap or lid. Then, loosen the plastic wrap or vent the lid to let steam escape. The steam helps to kill harmful bacteria and ensure uniform cooking. Using cooking bags are another way to ensure safe, even heating.

When cooking large cuts of meat in the microwave, be sure not to cook them on high power (100%). Cooking large cuts of meat on medium power (50%) for a longer period allows the meat to cook all the way through without overcooking the outside. If you have your oven user manual, follow directions in it.

Stir dishes halfway through microwaving time or more often to eliminate cold spots and ensure more even heating.

When partially cooking food in the microwave that will be cooked the rest of the way on the grill or in a conventional oven, be sure to move the food from the microwave to the other heat source immediately. Never partially cook food in the microwave and store it for later use.

Always allow standing time before checking the internal temperature of the food. Standing time completes the cooking process of microwave cooked food.

Changing your expectations changes your attitude. Ben Franklin wrote, “Blessed is he who expects nothing, for he shall receive it.” Changing your attitude changes your behavior. According to clergyman Earl Riney, our attitude is a thing that draws people to us or repels them. Changing your behavior changes your performance. Doing the same old things will always get us the same old results. Try a new behavior! Changing your performance changes your life. When we change what we do (our performance) on a consistent basis, we have the power to change our lives! “Everything begins with a thought!” … Emerson


Use a food thermometer to make sure that food that has been cooked in the microwave has reached a safe internal temperature before serving. The thermometer should always be placed in the thickest area of meat or poultry, not near fat or bone. In whole poultry, the thermometer should be placed in the innermost part of the thigh. Cooking times may differ in microwaves due to varying power and efficiency. Cook foods to the following safe minimum internal temperatures, as measured with a food thermometer: Cook all raw beef, pork, lamb and veal steaks, chops, and roasts to a minimum internal temperature of 145° F before removing meat from the heat source. For safety and quality, allow the meat to rest for at least three minutes before carving or consuming. For reasons of personal preference, consumers may choose to cook meat to higher temperatures.

Cook all raw ground beef, pork, lamb, and veal to an internal temperature of 160° F.

Cook all poultry to a safe minimum internal temperature of 165° F in all parts.

Microwaving stuffed, whole poultry is not recommended. The stuffing might not reach the temperature needed to destroy harmful bacteria. Cook stuffing separately to 165° F.

UUUUUUUU And finally, as Paul the Apostle wrote, “Whatever things are true, noble, just, pure, lovely, of good report - if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy, THINK ON THESE THINGS.”

Safe Microwave Cooking

Cook egg dishes and casseroles to 160° F.

Reheat leftovers to 165° F.

Fish is done when it reaches 145° F and flakes with a fork.

Defrosting in the Microwave •

When defrosting food in the microwave, remove the food from its packaging. Foam trays and plastic wraps are not heat stable and could break down during cooking, causing harmful chemicals to leach into the food.

Photo by Curtis Adams from Pexels •

Immediately cook meat, poultry, egg casseroles and fish that have been defrosted in a microwave oven. Parts of the frozen food may have begun to cook during the defrosting process and partially cooked food should never be held for later use. Other heat sources such as an oven, grill or stovetop can be used to complete the cooking process.

Reheating in the Microwave •

When reheating foods in the microwave, cover them with a lid or microwave-safe plastic wrap. Covering helps to hold in moisture and provides safe, even heating.

Allow for standing time for foods that have been reheated in the microwave oven. After the food has been allowed to stand, use a clean food thermometer to check that the leftovers have been heated to 165° F. before serving.

Containers and Wraps •

Only use cookware that is labeled safe for microwave use.

Plastic containers such as margarine tubs, take-out containers and other one-time use containers should not be used in microwaves because of the risk of the container melting or warping and leaching dangerous chemicals into the food.

Products that are safe to use in the microwave include microwave-safe plastic wraps, wax paper, cooking bags, parchment paper, and white microwave-safe paper towels. Plastic wraps should not touch foods during microwaving.

Products that are NOT safe to use in the microwave include thin plastic storage bags, brown paper or grocery bags, newspapers or aluminum foil.

Front Porch Stories

I’ve been homeschooling two of our grandlittles while their mom is out of town.

They are second grade and kindergarten, and we are on week two of two. My daughter is an artist and has to travel for two weeks at a time, so I’m on call. Many grandparents are homeschooling their littles and I’m thankful to be able to stand in the gap. It’s a new routine, this whole school day thing, but as long as there is naptime midday (for me) things go rather well.

God bless our teachers

Back when my kids were young, I quit the higher paying jobs and worked in their schools as often as possible, doing things like front office work, substitute teaching and after school care. As a clerk in an elementary school, my job entailed a variety of duties. One stormy day, the weather alert radio system warned of a tornado. There are few things I dislike more than a tornado, and I was ready to duck and cover. But that was not in the plan and my principal gave me a directive to go and give reassurance. It was not to reassure the kids, it was to reassure the first-year teachers. I gathered up all my courage and weak-kneed, I headed down to the kindergarten wing. My initial charge was a young woman in her first weeks of teaching. She was doing what she was supposed to by lining the children up in the hallway, but she was trembling. Little did she know I was also trembling. As the skies turned from sunny to dark and finally a sickly green color, I had already passed the level of fear and was fully on task to encourage the young woman. Once she had her children nestled in the hallway, I went over to her, put my hand gently on her back and told her what a great job she was doing to keep the kids safe. She had tears in her eyes, and I knew she realized the magnitude of responsibility for every tiny life in her hands. “Sing to them,” I suggested. I was grabbing at straws; it was the only thing I could think of. I waited as she sat down among them and began singing, shaky at first, but by the time I was walking away her bold voice was joined by all the little voices as they sang a happy tune while winds whistled and skies darkened. I didn’t have time that day to fear the storm. I had a job to do. I was one of several office staff who walked from wing to wing, checking on teachers and students. We had many tornado watches and warnings that school year. It was one of those last storms that I realized my principal may have seen the fear in me early in the school year and gave me a job to do. She turned my fear into an important purpose and I’m grateful for that. Because of those years I spent seeing the love and dedication of the teachers I once knew, I have compassion for them as they now cope with unprecedented situations to teach, nurture and keep the students in their care safe.

God bless our teachers. They need prayer, patience and understanding now more than ever.

Deal Finder: Free or low-cost Educational Resources This school year is already off to an unusual start because of the COVID-19 pandemic, and parents might need additional resources to help their children succeed in their studies. Here are some free or lowcost resources for students of all ages, including free courses, test preparation materials, Wi-Fi access and more:

Free Wi-Fi Having access to the Internet is a key component of virtual learning, but not all families are able to afford this service at home.

Depending on where high school seniors want to apply to college, they might be getting a break this year when it comes to standardized testing. Several dozen colleges and universities in Georgia are waiving SAT and ACT test requirements for upcoming semesters because the coronavirus pandemic has led to numerous test date cancellations and has prevented thousands of students from having access to testing opportunities. The University System of Georgia’s 26 institutions will waive standardized test requirements for the spring, summer and fall 2021 semesters, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. However, high school students are still permitted to take standardized tests and submit their scores to the colleges of their choice. Students seeking resources to help prepare for standardized tests can also visit https://www.collegeboard.org. Massive Open Online Courses Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) are free online classes from top universities and companies on a wide variety of subjects. Popular MOOC sites include Coursera, edX and Future Learn. High school students and their parents can take advantage of these online courses to learn new skills or enhance their knowledge for a course they’re already taking. The sites also offer opportunities to earn microcredentials and professional certificates at reasonable prices.

Pre-K Tools The Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning is offering free daily activities on its website. Parents will find descriptions of activities designed particularly for 4- and 5-year-olds that focus on key learning areas. There are also virtual field trips and suggestions for screen free activities, outdoor activities and activities to help children deal with their emotions. For more in-

During this COVID-19 Pandemic




with Angela

A taste of travel This spring, the talented author and photographer Georgianna Lane released her newest book, London in Bloom, and I ordered a copy. The book is brimming with images of beautiful flowers all over London, from jonquils near Big Ben to a floral boutique in Belgravia and roses at the Royal Botanic Gardens. From the moment I turned the first page, I was smitten by all of the beautiful photos reminding me of my own trips to London. So when the pandemic news got too dreary and the online doomscrolling made me weary, I reached for my pretty new volume and “booked” some armchair travel. It’s a practice I am happy to recommend. I feel the same way about reading old cookbooks, especially those from places I’ve never visited, like Hawaii. A sweet bread recipe I have enjoyed making is from the Waioli Cook Book II, published in 1974 by the Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary of Honolulu and a restaurant that’s now known as the Waioli Kitchen and Bake Shop. While temporarily closed because of the pandemic—Oahu has suspended in-person dining—the Waioli, founded in 1922, remains in business, and I’d love to dine there one day. With a cookbook featuring recipes from Hawaii, I wanted to make something with a tropical flavor, and a recipe for Mango Bread caught my eye. I love stone fruits, and the mango is right up there with the peach in my estimation. In fact, whenever I’m buying specialty tea from a new vendor, I always look for peach- or mango- flavored blends. A juicy peach or mango is such a treat, and a bread featuring mango is a great end-of-summer sweet. This recipe makes two loaves, using 9 x 5 x 3-inch pans, and they are moist, rich, and brimming with mango and nuts. I substituted applesauce for some of the oil with great results, but feel free to use the original recipe if you prefer.
