HALLOWEEN CARNIVAL AND CHILI COOK-OFF/PIE BAKE Once again, the Women’s Club Annual Halloween Carnival was a huge success. With an estimated 300 plus children showing up and enjoying the festivities. Many women from the Women’s Club, Tim Mikos and our Fire Department , Jon Brown , Crawford Walker and the SPA Crew, Carroll County Sheriffs Dept., Life Flight, and resident volunteers all pitched in to make this a great event for the children of Fairfield Plantation. A big Thank you is offered to 11 year old Drake Cokley for all of his work.

Life Flight flew in a helicopter, Fire Trucks were brought in for the children to see. John Brown, Crawford Walker and the Spa Crew were handing out candy to the children. This year the Fire Department held it’s 3rd annual Chili cook-off and Pie Bake along side of the Halloween Carnival. This enhanced both events. Story on Page 21

HELP!!!! Hello neighbors, yes, I am once again pleading for help. This newspaper seems to have become welcomed and accepted within the community. Some even comment that, they look forward to it. The advertisers also seem to be served well by it’s circulation and the response that they have receive form it. That must mean that everything is GREAT. Well, yes and no. I am trying to do all that I can to keep this newspaper going and interesting for the readers. As much as I appreciate the current contributors, I would like to have more. I want to continue to deliver items that interest the community and readers. It is difficult for me to do it all at times and I could also use some help. Proofreading is good and welcomed but unfortunately, I get everything so late, I don't have the time to get it to a proofreader and back in time for print so, I end up doing the proofreading, writing, ad creation, billing, reporting, investigating and much, much more. I do believe this newspaper could be so much more. This is where my request for help comes in. I sincerely would love to have other article contributors. Regular contributors such as the articles by Jeffrey Thomas and Christina Henggeler. I have had endless positive comments on both of these regular articles and they are very much

appreciated. I don't mind having anyone contribute an article on occasion and the invitation is always there for anyone to do so but, my regular article contributors are this paper’s life blood. If you have any interest in writing about hunting, politics, community, golf, fishing or just about anything you can imagine, others would enjoy reading it and I would love to have it. I can even do a “Your Voice” section if I have enough interest but would like to keep it civil, sane and PG for everyone to read. If your interest is not writing but, you do enjoy the paper and would like to help. Please contact me. I could use someone to simply contact each of our groups and remind them each month that the newspaper would like to have their news. I would love to have a couple of teenagers that could share with the community items that interest them. I am not wanting to pass off my work to anyone, just get a little help and have some fun while doing it. There are some items and events that are community related that I would like the Newspaper to sponsor and possibly make them another exciting event that the residents would look forward to each year. My long term goal is to create something that helps this community to communicate better and a publication that this community can be very proud of. Would you like to be a part of that goal?

Commissioner Corner November, 2012

Its official…Obama is in for four more years! It is now time for all of us to accept the outcome and move on. Whether you were an Obama fan or Romney fan, the “tribe has spoken” and Obama gets four more Vicki Anderson years. He no longer has Hillary Clinton as his Secretary of State. President Obama made many promises on the campaign trail. It is time to reach across the aisle and work together for the good of our country. We need jobs to get our economy going again..

State Representative for 19 years…19! That is a very long time. What has he accomplished? What committees does he Chair? What is he known for? We should know the answers to all those questions, but I do not. Mike Dugan is a fine man, a veteran, a Bowdon High School and University of West Georgia graduate. Tell all your friends about Mike. County government is pretty slow as far as the commissioner’s are concerned. We have a called county commission meeting on Thursday, November 29th at 5 p.m. The November meeting was cancelled because it was Election Day and the December meeting is cancelled because it is also Election Day. I have no idea what is on the agenda for that meeting. Come January I will be able to keep you more informed.

One item that appeared in the Times-Georgian recently was the 16 additional hours of holiday time that the Chairman gave each County employee. I Mike Dugan and Bill Hembree are in a runoff was concerned because that additional money was for the District 30 Senate seat. We do not vote in that race as Mike Crane is our Senator. If there are not budgeted. The Chairman does not determine the holiday schedule, the Board of Commissioners no other runoffs, then we will not vote on the first do. You and I are paying for everything being spent Tuesday in December. Bill Hembree has been a in county government. I am sure this will Mention This Ad and Get 10% Off Any Service come up in the November 29th meeting. I know you are tired of government officials, local, state, and fed-

eral, “going at it” all the time! So am I! You have to stand up for what you believe is right for your district and the county, but sometimes it is very hard. I have a friend in Texas dealing with a similar issue. She is distraught because she stood up for her beliefs, refused to lie, and now she is fighting “city hall”. Can you believe you would be asked to lie? It is very difficult to fight city hall. Some of you have had to do it and you come out looking like the bad guy. When you stand up and fight for right, we refer to that as INTEGRITY! Most people will back down when the going gets tough. They are either not confrontational or just do not want to hassle with the mess! If you want to know what causes the most problems, it all gets down to MONEY! If you follow the money, it will lead you to the information you are seeking. Remember…Pigs get fat, hogs get slaughtered! Todd Wright at Midway is continuing his series on “The End”, which is about the end of times. It is a very interesting subject. Where are you going to spend eternity? Is your name in the Book of Life? Will you be one of those “Left Behind”? Great series and all past sermons are available to view on the church’s website.

LETS GET TECHNICAL Let’s get technical…

ing thought right?

Jeffrey Thomas

What does this mean for the end user? It means that your data is dependant on you, the creator, to make sure it lives past the so-called expiry date of the medium that holds it.

Backup your data or say buh-bye to your memories…

Imagine this. Your hard drive might just up and crash. Thieves might steal your laptop at a coffee shop. A defunct Russian spy satellite, or other unknown spaceship, might crash through the roof of your house, or a wandering three year-old with a fruit juice carton … At times like these, having a secure, up-to-date backup of your hard drive can be a real lifesaver. But how many of you have a backup strategy: let alone the actual software performing this vital function? Here’s an interesting thought. As an electronic component, hard drives are "rated" by so-called MTBF. This stands for "Mean Time Between Failure", which is about the same rating as a light bulb. The question is not if it will fail, but when. In the real world the average life expectancy of a hard drive is now only 2 to 4 years. In fact, the two major hard drive manufacturers, Seagate and Western Digital, have recently cut their warranties to as little as one year. Sober-

Here’s an idea how much a gigabyte really is:

During the course of my workweek I hear all kinds of things about computers. I think the worst thing, however, is “my computer crashed, can you get my music and pictures of my grandkids back?” Or even worse, in the case of a business, “can you recover my customer database, and payroll files?” In some cases the answer is yes, but it is costly and time consuming. In other cases it is sadly beyond recovery. Doing a backup is one of the smartest things you can do to protect the important information, and critical data on your computer. We all know this, right? This should include email, internet bookmarks, work files, data files from finance programs like QuickBooks, spreadsheets, photographs, your iTunes license file, and anything else you can’t afford to loose. Ahh, but how often, you ask? Look at it this way, any file you cannot afford to lose, i.e. that will take too long to re-create or is unique and cannot be re-created, should be located on two separate physical media, such as two external hard drives, or a hard drive and a flash drive, in two different physical locations; not in the same building. Is your head spinning already? That type of important information should be backed up daily, if any file information has changed, and with a little planning you can be enjoying peace of mind knowing that your photographs, music, and documents are safe. There’s a lot to be said for this… I do a lot of data recovery and computer forensic work. In these circles there are a couple of sayings that hit home: "If you want to loose it, keep one copy," and “One copy is none, two copies are one.” What you need to know You may think you just need as much space as you have data on your machine. But this is actually a false assumption. Have you ever been in a situation where you needed to delete files from your PC because they just didn’t fit anymore? The same thing happens with your online backups. So you need to plan ahead. As you are working and adding files to your PC your backup capacity needs to increase, too. A rule of thumb is twice the amount of storage space you have. There are many ways to secure your data, from “free”, the $4.99 a month off site “cloud” systems, to on-site external hard drive systems. Finding a happy medium, pun intended, is hitting that sweet spot of cost effectiveness. If you are not a geek you might not know how much you can store with 1 GB.

Around 250 MP3 songs 200 photos of 5 MB each 12,500 word documents One full-length movie; with skinny actors To find out how much space to provide for file or attachment size is usually easily accessible, if not already prominent. In Windows, right clicking on any file, folder, or drive and choosing "Properties..." from the drop down menu will show the size. In an Explorer window, you can select "Details" from the "View" menu; or in a file open or save dialogue box there is a "View" button from which you can also choose "Details". If you then click on the word "Size" at the top of the column, you can group together the largest files in a folder. In Mac OS X, you can press Command+i to show details of an individual file, or Command+Option+i to show details of all selected items in an Inspector window. The Mac equivalent of Details view is "List" view, and Command+J gives you the option to "calculate all sizes" of folders as well as files. The “Happy Medium” External USB hard drives prices have come down considerably in recent years. Sizes currently range from “tiny” 60GB to a whopping 3TB. For example, you can purchase a 640GB USB hard drive for under $100. Most notebooks today come with 500GB drives installed, so you will, with the correct configuration, have room for plenty of backup. Bear in mind, however, that these units will physically be in the house with your computer, so if there is a fire, satellite, etc., you still lose everything. Flash drives are the rage at the moment. They come in sizes ranging from 2GB to 256GB. There are plenty of models to choose from and each has its own set of features. The great thing about flash drives is their portability: simply slip it in your pocket… Pay attention to the manufacturer here. There are many imported flash drives on the market that overstate their capacity. One thing that is peculiar to all types of removable media, however, is the need to stop the device before removing it from the computer. Failure to do so, on a Windows machine, can mean a loss of data and the following dire message: “Windows – Delayed Write Failed: Windows was unable to save all the data for the file X:\$Mft. The data has been lost. This error may be caused by a failure of your computer hardware or network connection. Please try to save this file elsewhere.” If you have a flash drive, or USB drive, attached to your Windows computer you will see a little flash drive icon, "Safely Remove Hardware" icon in system tray in the bottom right hand corner. Choose your drive from the list, and then remove it once it notifies you of its safe removal. If you try to eject a drive, and get the "file is in use" error, that means something is going on in the background you don't know about, or sometimes a program is just being silly and has a locked file on the drive even if it isn't using it. If you were to yank it out during one of these situations, you could still cause data loss. Ejecting it will warn you of the situation, and let you close the program in question. DVD disks are inexpensive. They hold around 4.7GB of data, and can be stored, they say, for up to 100 years. Blu-Ray disks store up to 25GB of data, probably for around the same time. Most new Windows computers come with software pre-installed that will allow you to “burn” files to CD/DVD, or Blu-Ray disks. This method, I might add, is purely manual: you have to collect the files, put them in a burn folder, but the disk in the drive, and hit the “Burn” button. The disks you create will most likely remain on your property too, so in case of disaster you still lose everything. Continued ———-→

LETS GET TECHNICAL Off-site, or Cloud backup is good, but with so many choices out there, how can we narrow it down? So rather than directly recommending services, here are some requirements to consider. There are two types of cloud storage: dedicated backup services and cloud sync services. The former usually comes with a client that's able to watch files or folders, including types of files, and back them up as they change. A popular example of this is Mozy, (http://www.mozy.com). The only real downside to Mozy is that restoring files is more involved; it isn't expected users will restore unless they have to. Cloud sync services take a different approach, adding a magic folder or drive to your computer, the contents of which are automatically and invisibly synced online. A popular example of this is Dropbox, (http:// www.dropbox.com). Some services offer client software that can also watch files and folders anywhere on your hard disk and back them up too, such as that offered by SugarSync, (http://www.sugarsync.com). Cloud sync is an immediate form of backup, and if

you create and edit files within the magic folder everything will be backed-up automatically J I personally use DropBox. I can drop my important files into it and access them on my “smart phone” wherever I am. Any photographs I take on my cell phone are also dropped into DropBox and available on my desktop/ laptop. I can also transfer documents into a public folder and share this with colleagues or friends through an email link. Other offerings are Adrive, Apple iCloud, Google Drive, Amazon Cloud Drive, Microsoft SkyDrive, Ubuntu One, (for the true geeks out there), and Box.net. What to back up Let’s break this down into two little chunks, sorta ... Documents: includes Word processing files, spreadsheets, email, and similar documents that should be backed up every day. Just about any basic backup program can perform so-called incremental backups, in which the program copies only the files that have changed since the most recent previous backup. Media: includes photographs, video files and music. If your backup medium is sufficiently roomy and fast, you can back these files every day. However these tend to be large files and may require a separate backup strategy.

from the original source in the event of a system failure. The most important documents to back up are, as mentioned earlier, items that you have created, like documents, photos, music, etc. 2. Consider creating multiple backups. Having one backup may seem like enough, but a problem that you were unaware of could be present on a backup copy: such as infected files. In this event, recovering your data without experiencing the same problem may be impossible. Maintaining a cycle of two or three different backups is considered a good policy. 3. Decide how often you want to back up your files. Do you use your computer daily for business? Then a daily backup of important files is important. If you are a more casual user, a weekly backup may suffice. Finally. Speaking of “mechanical” failure. My Android cell phone has gremlins. It appears Verizon gave me a new ringtone called “reboot”. Sometimes it rings, sometimes it doesn’t. Sometimes I get messages, sometimes I don’t. When it comes back up I have no idea who called, as the caller ID screen does not get updated. If I have not returned your call it is not because I don’t care. Please text me, they seem to get through without rebooting the unit, or call me again, or email, or send out hoards of minions to track me down … 770.862.8781

Backup software: what to look for Four main areas to pay attention to are: backup features, recovery and restore, scheduling and reporting, and help and support. Before You Start – A recap 1. Which files are most important to you? Certain things, such as computer games, applications, and programs don't usually need to be backed up. You can easily reinstall these files

I’VE FALLEN AND CAN’T GET UP I’ve Fallen and I Can’t Get Up! I never fully close the shower curtain while showering. Not that I am concerned about Norman from Psycho or anything, but still, I like to be able to see out while showering. Christina Henggeler This open curtain habit leads to lots of water in the bathroom floor. My husband fusses about the water in the floor, but I say the dogs like to drink it and I wipe it up with the towel before I leave the room, no problem. Today the water in the floor was a problem. After getting out of the shower I was standing on the water filled floor putting lotion on my feet- when somehow, I fell flat on my back! Truly, I don’t know how it happened! And it hurt like crazy. I crawled into the bedroom and lay on the floor trying not to cry. Seriously, I couldn’t believe I fell in the bathroom. What’s next? Losing my car in the Wal-Mart parking lot? Peeing my pants when I laugh? After a few minutes I got up, got dressed, and called my husband to tell him he may be right about the water in the floor. For some reason

he thought it was hilarious and kept saying “I’ve fallen and I can’t get up” and recommends I get Life -Alert! Very funny, ha-ha.

I am going to Wal-mart to get a bath-mat. And maybe a flower to tape to the car antennae… Christina Henggeler

PLANTATION SPOTLIGHT Our community is fortunate to have many people with a large variety of skills and talent. It seems only fitting to recognize these residents in our newspaper. This month’s Plantation Spotlight is the P.O.A. Board. Yes, this may seem a little odd, especially coming from me but, it should not. I have always respected these individuals. I may not always agree with certain decisions but, I do very much respect and appreciate their volunteer service and the sacrifices they make. This is not a selection of any one individual. It is a selection of the position and/or persons that

have been and will be POA Board members. The position is very difficult at best and a nightmare at it’s worst. As a spouse of a former volunteer POA Board member, I got to see firsthand all the hours dedicated to this community. I remember when she first contemplated the prospect of running for the POA Board. I told her that she would make enemies of friends and sacrifice a lot more time than she was bargaining for. Both of those assumptions came true. It seems that as a POA Board member, if you stand by your beliefs, no matter what those beliefs are, you will loose friendships. This loss of friendships is the most disappointing of the many sacrifices and should not be necessary. You would think that the fact, that someone who would volunteer their time and work on the behalf of their friends, neighbors and for people they don’t even know, would mean that they would get enormous respect and admiration from everyone. Unfortunately this is not the case. Whenever anyone stands up for what they believe in, they immediately put themselves out there for criticism from a multitude of individuals partaking in armchair quarterbacking. There is also the unfortunate fact that, even though we all are suppose to be adults, we often revert back to the school yard antics of name calling and gossip. If all of this is not enough, Board members also have to face some of these issues amidst the other board members. A good Board member is trying to do what is good for the community all the while of having to negotiate the politics of being a part of nine people, all with different views of how things should be. They put in numerous unpaid hours meeting about EVERYTHING. Everything may include budgets, security, amenities or something

mundane and seemingly simple as a toilet that needs replacing in one of the bathrooms at the Marina or Golf Course but, as many do not know, nothing is simple when you are spending other people’s, hard earned money. POA Board members are also usually an active part of selected committees. This is in addition to their voting responsibilities. Because of these positions on committees, it is not unusual to get that urgent call during the day while they are trying to do their day jobs or in the middle of the night while all of us lay happily asleep. Yes, I did say day jobs. Many of our current POA Board as well as past members do have/had an actual job that they must do in addition to their POA Board responsibilities. For the ones that don’t have these day jobs, they have worked for many years to get the opportunity to now retire, instead of just enjoying their retirement; they have decided to take on this most joyful community service endeavor. The aforementioned money issue is one reason that makes all of this so difficult. The POA dues/ assessments is what gives everyone ownership. With ownership, everyone feels that they have the right to “have a say” in how things are decided. This theoretically is true but, not in the way most people think. POA Board members and committee members often have done a lot more work and have much more knowledge about a particular topic than the average resident. This is also coupled with the fact that the POA Board members are elected to represent the community and make these decisions. Election time is when the individual residents actually have the opportunity to “have their say” and also in certain meetings, along with the ability to write correspondence to the POA Board. I would also like to remind my neighbors that in our last POA Board elections, we had approximately 500 votes out of approximately 1700. Remember, if you don’t like how things are being decided, your first right is, the right to vote. Votes do make a difference but, don’t if not used. This community has evolved and continues to evolve. The POA Board has also changed over time. Not only have individual members changed but, how they interact with the residents has also changed. This

evolution and change is sometimes difficult and often are not keeping up with or parallel too each other. This is often another reason for conflict. Conflicts and criticisms aside, each and every POA Board member of past, present and future are deserving of the respect and admiration of their peers, neighbors and the residents, for their time, dedication and often very difficult work that this position brings. I would like to publically say to each and every one of them that has given of their time, Thank you. I ask my friends and neighbors to remember this article and put yourself in their shoes the next time you decide to debate one or all of the POA Board. I stand behind mine and everyone else’s right to debate, question and speak out, 100%. There is absolutely nothing wrong with debate, there is however, how you go about it. There is a right way and a wrong way. We all should remember that these folks are at very least, our neighbors, which also have to live with the decisions they make each day, along side of you. Debates and the questioning of POA Board members and their decisions should always be done in a respectful manner because they have earned and do deserve it. I would also like to suggest that if you do have a question, do not immediately assume the worst. Instead, go to: http://fairfieldplantation.com/contact/ and send an email to the POA Board. Go to a meeting and ask a question to one of the individual Board members. I am not saying that this will always net you the results that you want but you should at least start there first. To the POA Board members that may read this. I would sincerely like to thank each and every one of your for your time, efforts and dedication. Now, I will see you at the next meeting, get ready for the questions and debate my friends. Billy Priest

KIWANIS CLUB Nov. 20th- Dr. Bob Pinckney, Club Past President will talk about the Kiwanis Eliminate Project. This will be a very interesting topic and on top of the Kiwanis Club Priority List. The Kiwanis Club needs everyone to be aware of this issue and the steps being taken by the Kiwanis to address it. With The Eliminate Project, Kiwanis International and UNICEF have joined forces to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus. This deadly disease steals the lives of nearly 60,000 innocent babies and a significant number of women each year. The effects of the disease are excruciating — tiny newborns suffer repeated, painful convulsions and extreme sensitivity to light and touch.

Kiwanis and UNICEF joined forces to tackle iodine deficiency disorders, achieving one of the most significant public health successes of the 20th century. Now, they are eliminating MNT from the face of the Earth. And in doing so, the project will reach the poorest, most neglected mothers and babies with additional lifesaving health care. The end of this one disease means the beginning of better health for so many families

In Other news, NEW KIWANIS Lt. GOVERNOR

Outgoing 2011-2012 Kiwanis Lt. Governor James Wyatt (left) of the Carrollton Golden K Kiwanis Club passes the Host Club Banner for Division 12 to Incoming 2012-2013 Lt. Governor Barry Gardner, of the Kiwanis Club of Fairfield Plantation. Division 12 encompasses Kiwanis Clubs in Carroll, Polk, Haralson, Heard, Paulding and Douglas counties.

To eliminate MNT from the Earth, more than 100 million mothers and their future babies must be immunized. This requires vaccines, syringes, safe storage, transportation, thousands of skilled staff and more. It will take US$110 million — and the dedicated work of UNICEF and every member of the Kiwanis family.

SMALL BUSINESS PROFILE Fairfield resident takes on challenge of starting law firm Having lived in Fairfield since the age of 7 (with exception of attending Ole Miss), I have always loved this community’s sense of community. So after finishing law school, I decided to open my firm in Carroll County and stay close to home. For three years, I commuted to Atlanta almost daily for school and worked continuously to gain as much experience as possible. Now, I am ready to venture out on my own. I opened Pippin Law, P.C. in late October and am looking forward to seeing where this adventure takes me and my family. Opening a business has been an interesting experience. I’ve had to contemplate the same things that anyone starting a business must consider. I’ve had to choose what kind of business entity would best suit my firm, while considering the tax consequences for me, individually, and the company. I also had to consider the image that I wanted to pro-

ject through the name of the firm. Ultimately, I chose Pippin Law, P.C. Now, I’m coming up with a marketing strategy, which includes social media, advertising, and a website. In addition to opening a firm, I am also earning an LL.M. in Taxation from the University of Alabama’s School of Law. I hope that this additional degree will help me to better serve the community and focus on small businesses, estate planning, and tax law. Especially now, I think these are crucial areas where so many people need help to plan their future, their business, or, even, to get out of trouble with the IRS.

I also believe practicing family law is important to the community, because they shape the lives of so many, including children. Divorces are

so very common these days - more than half of marriages end in divorce (and that’s just first marriages). I strive to provide quality and efficient family law services and to never make the situation worse than it already is for those involved. Of course,

there are some happier areas of family law that are just as important. Adoptions bring a new member into a family! I hope to be able to serve the Fairfield community over many years to come and to get more involved the community.

FIELD OF SCREAMS—HUGE SUCESS Field of Screams—Halloween 2012 The spookiest season of the year begins with Fairfield Plantation’s Field of Screams, a family friendly haven for one to overcome their FEAR. This year’s production was choreographed and designed, by our own, Phil O’Brien. The Field of Screams Tour was amidst the old campground ruins, behind the Recreation Center. Field of Screams 2012, transformed the campground ruins into a terrifying hunting ground for the undead, and provided eerie and haunting attractions, including Zombies in a haunting mist-filled graveyard, an enormous spider web to encapsulate its victims (sorry, visitors), a Frightening Witches Station with

a secret and powerful brew, a unique Maze with fake doors, an escaped angry Gorilla, an Evil Mad Scientist in his Laboratory of Horrors,

a frightful Frankenstein, Floating Ghosts, and a terrifying evil Clown, reminiscent of Steven King’s “It,” and a mad and horrifying crazy guy with a chainsaw. residents survived this year’s Field of Screams.

Over twenty local residents and teens transformed themselves into dark and haunting

Kudos to Phil O’Brien, the Recreation Committee members, the many volunteers, including characters, volunteers that set up/tore down the sets, artists, set design, make-up artists, tour-guides, Fairfield’s Maintenance Crew, and photographers. Special recognition and thanks to the Girl Scouts for providing food and hot chocolate! characters to provide a family friendly, safe haven for visitors to conquer their fear. Three-hundred

W I L LY ’ S F I T N E S S C O R N E R WILLY’S FITNESS CORNER, by Wilhelmina

Barry, IFTA Certified Personal Trainer SURVIVING THE HOLIDAYS !! You are not alone. Most people find themselves facing more food choices, stress & demands on their time in the months of Nov. & Dec. By maintaining a flexible attitude, you can breeze through these 2 months with your health & sanity in tact. First, take some time to reflect on what the Holidays mean to you before you get swept up in the activities. Once you determine what you truly need and want from the Holidays, it is much easier to let go of the need to recreate the perfect, unattainable ‘Norman Rockwell’ holiday. Then you are freed up to focus on activities that exemplify the true meaning of the holidays. That being said, here are some suggestions to avoid the average 7 lb weight gain from Halloween to New Year’s; FOOD; Strive for balance! Continue with

your normal, healthy eating plan. Don’t starve yourself all day because you have a party at night & you are trying to ‘save’ your calories. That is setting yourself up for failure because you will justify eating what ever you want because you did not eat all day. A balanced eating regimen thru out the holidays looks like this; You had a high fat meal last night, so follow it with low-fat meal the next day. Or high fat week, follow it with a low-fat week. And, when you work hard all year at healthy eating, it is ok to enjoy the occasional treats. Just don’t let it turn into a month of pigging out & telling yourself; ‘I will go on a diet in Jan.” You all ready know that formula does not work!

coming up every year? Set your priorities with whom you really want to spend time with during the holidays. Maybe order gifts online instead of spending hours at the mall. Do you really need to bake for everyone at the office or would they enjoy a fruit basket just as much? I hope this helps you handle life’s little interruptions! And a great way to work out your stress is to join our Fairfield Exercise Class; Class days are; Tuesday, 10:30am Low Impact Cardio-Sculpt , Thursday, 9:00am Low Impact-Cardio-Core & Friday, 9:00am Body Sculpt. All classes are held at the Rec Center. For more info contact Willy Barry, 770-238-9528 or barryclan@bellsouth.net

3RD ANNUAL FIRE DEPARTMENT CHILI COOKOFF & PIE BAKE First of all, the 3rd annual Fire Department Chili Cook-off and Pie Bake was a huge success. The Fire department held this year’s contest along side the Halloween Carnival and as usual, the Fire Department guys and gals help with many facets of the carnival including the setup and take down. Tim Mikos asked me to thank both the participants and the residents that came, tasted and voted. The proceeds went along ways towards the new fire truck and other items for the Fire Department. Tim appreciTim Mikos ates all of the overwhelming support that he and the other fire guys and gals get from this community.

Now that the niceties are taken care of let’s get down to business. After much trash talking and a chili taste smack down, Tim Mikos takes the title from Darrell Haley this year. I am not so sure that this sat very well with Mr. Halley. Even though Mr. Haley showed good sportsmanship, I heard a mumbling that sounded like ‘Wait Till Next Year Tim, you @@*% is mine”. So it looks like the battle will continue. Both Tim and Darrell are eager to have other participants join the fun and trash talking next year, both agree that it just adds more chances to stomp some chili butt. Darrell Haley

Let’s not forget the Pie bake. My Favorite coconut crème did not win this year. Her title was snatched by Jamie Sporich with a Strawberry Banana Pie, which I did not get to taste : (. The chili cookoff

and pie bake did not lack in drama this year. In all seriousness, this is a great event that seems to be getting bigger each year. Not only do the participants get into the fun smack talk and the tasters get some delectable delights, it also is for a very good cause. Our Fire Department does so much for this community and it was so very nice to see the residents saying thank you in the way of their support for this event. This is when our community is at it’s best. Great job to the Fairfield Fire and Rescue, Participants and also to the residents that came and supported this event. Billy Priest
