We  love  Laurie! As we welcome Allison on board as Editor with open arms, we just want to take a minute to express how we feel about working with Laurie these last couple of years (since Vol 1, Issue 1!)

Laurie is one of the smartest, insightful, diplomatic, witty, and just plain nice people I’ve ever worked with. She has been instrumental in keeping Kitchen Drawer from being shelved and we are lucky she has shared her talents with us for the past 3 years. She will be missed but for some reason I don’t think this is the last time we’ll be seeing her.-­Ben Johnson Working with Laurie is like working with your own personal cheerleader. She not only provides helpful and constructive criticism, but also makes writing enjoyable! She also graciously put up with all my dead-­ends and minor freakouts with articles, even though she was probably pulling out her hair. Writing for KD won’t be the same without her; she will be truly missed!-­Rachel Scoggins Laurie, thank you for helping me understand the proper place for an -­ and a –, and of course, the pesky —! You are one of the most hard working, dependable, fun people I’ve ever worked with. I’m glad we had the genius idea to bring you on board for the very first issue! ;) (Please note this may be the first emoticon printed in KD.) -­Nicole Scibetta Laurie, it has been a great pleasure working with you on so many levels. I will never forget the beautiful story you wrote about my precious daddy. It meant so much to me, and it helped to mend a huge hole in my heart and in my life. Now, whenever I read it (which is often), I will not only think of him, but I will also think of you and your kindness. -­All the best, Nan Jolly Moore Laurie can correct your errors and make you feel like a genius while she’s doing it. She is one of a dwindling number of people who appreciates the value of the semicolon. Laurie is a very smart, classy, and tactful lady!-­ Allison Smyly Laurie has turned some of my broken English writings into true masterpieces. I thoroughly proofread every email sent to her-­ not because she will correct it, but because I respect her enough not to send shoddy literature. She deserves better than that. Cheers to you, Laurie! You’ve left an impression in all of us that will forever remain.-­Ashley Green

(from  left  to  right)    Rob  Cochrane  assists  in  Molly’s  restoration,  Jeff  Sanders  takes  a  seat  on  Molly,  Truett  Cathy  at   Molly’s  unveiling.  

As  a  boy,  Jeff  Sanders  was  a  big  fan  of  Thomaston’s  fire  department, where  his  dad  was  a  volunteer  firefighter.  Jeff  watched   his  dad  and  other  firefighters  battle  many  a  blaze  from   the  seat  of  one  of  the  three  fire  trucks  Thomaston  had  at   that  time.  Jeff's  favorite  fire  truck  was  a  1927  American   LaFrance,  also  known  as  “Molly.”  Jeff  credits  the  fire   department  and  its  chief  at  the  time,  C.W.  “Bushy”   McDaniel,  with  helping ��him  decide  to  behave  himself  in   school  and  in  all  of  life.  Mr.  McDaniel,  whose  wife  taught   across  the  hall  from  Jeff's  first  grade  class,  often  visited   the  grammar  school  and  served  as  an  unofficial  mentor  to  

At  home,  Jeff  and  his  dad  could  hear  the  loud  motor  of   the  fire  engine  from  blocks  away  and  waited  breathlessly   to  see  if  Chief  McDaniel  would  remember  his  promise.   Remember  he  did,  and  Jeff  was  on  top  of  the  world  as   he  rang  Molly's  bell  all  the  way  around  the  town  square   and  on  to  school.  When  they  arrived  at  the  school,  Chief   McDaniel  gently  lifted  Jeff  from  the  seat,  and  before   placing  him  on  the  ground,  said,  “If  you  ever  pitch  another   temper  tantrum,  you  cannot  ride  or  sit  on  one  of  my  fire   trucks,  nor  come  to  the  fire  station,  ever!”  Jeff  proudly  

the  children.  In  the  middle  of  one  of  Jeff's  frequent  temper   tantrums,  Chief  McDaniel  appeared  in  his  classroom.   “If  you  will  stop  this  ruckus,  I'll  come  get  you  on  Friday   morning  and  take  you  to  school  on  Molly,”  the  fire  chief   said.  “You  can  ring  the  bell  all  the  way  to  school.”   Jeff  behaved  well  for  the  rest  of  the  week,   anticipating  that  morning  as  if  waiting  for  Santa  Claus.  

walked  into  the  school  a  reformed  student  who  never  had   another  tantrum.   Jeff  remembers  spending  pleasant  summer  days   at  the  fire  station,  polishing  the  fire  equipment,  watching   old  timers  play  checkers,  and  listening  to  the  firefighters'   stories.  When  Jeff  would  step  up  on  a  crate  to  peer   longingly  at  an  Orange  Crush  in  the  soft  drink  chest,  a

fireman  would  always  say,  “I'll  pay  for  this  one,  you  pay   next  time,”  even  though  Jeff  had  brought  his  nickel  for  a   drink.     Back  then,  events  at  the  fire  department  made   news  for  the  whole  community.  Jeff  remembers  the   whole  town  coming  out  to  see  a  1959  closed  cab  LaFrance   fire  truck  coming  in  to  town  by  train,  but  Molly  always   remained  Jeff's  favorite.  Throughout  his  childhood,  Jeff   stayed  loyal  to  the  fire  department  and  Molly,  despite   a  misunderstanding  that  resulted  in  Jeff's  missing  an   opportunity  to  ride  Molly  in  a  parade.   Things  were  never  quite  the  same  for  Jeff  after  the   fire  station  was  remodeled  and  Molly  was  placed  behind   windowless  doors;  now,  he  could  only  admire  her  when  the   doors  were  open  or  when  the  truck  was  out  of  the  station.   With  the  delivery  of  another  new  fire  truck  in  1962,  Molly  

After  the  fire,  Molly  was  cleaned  up  and  again  placed  in   parade  status  until  October  1966,  when  she  was  sold  at   public  auction  to  local  businessman  Tom  Cason.  Though   Mr.  Cason  invited  him  to  come  see  Molly  any  time,  Jeff   only  visited  a  few  times.  Seeing  Molly  in  a  garage  instead   of  at  the  fire  station  brought  Jeff  a  twinge  of  sadness.  After   Molly  was  sold  to  Skip  Seback  of  Decatur,  Georgia,  Jeff   caught  glimpses  of  her  at  the  Atlanta  Fire  Muster  and  on   the  news.  Jeff  lost  track  of  Molly's  whereabouts  when  she   was  sold  to  new  owners  out  of  state,  but  he  and  his  dad   never  forgot  the  old  fire  truck.   In  1988,  Jeff's  dad  told  him  that  he  needed  to  find   Ole  Molly  and  bring  her  back  home  “where  she  belongs.”   For  years,  roadblocks  and  dead  ends  marred  Jeff's  attempts   to  find  Molly  and  bring  her  back  to  the  Thomaston  area.   Once,  when  Jeff's  ailing  father  asked  about  his  search,  

was  retired  and  placed  in  “parade  status.”  This  meant   that  unless  there  was  a  large  fire,  she  would  never  again   respond  to  a  fire  call.  After  the  truck  was  retired,  Chief   McDaniel  fondly  called  her  “Ole  Molly.”   Although  it  appeared  that  Molly's  glory  days  were   over,  she  got  another  chance  to  shine  in  “active  duty.”   In  August  1966,  Thomaston's  worst  fire  in  more  than   thirty  years  erupted  when  a  tank  overflowed  during  a  gas   delivery  to  the  Britt  Oil  Company,  resulting  in  a  massive   explosion  and  fire.  Flames  engulfed  the  oil  company,   Rogers  Concrete,  Ideal  Cleaners,  and  several  other  small   buildings.  Even  the  railroad  tracks  were  damaged  in  the   extensive  heat  of  the  fire.  All  available  fire  trucks  were   called  to  service,  including  “Ole  Molly.”  On  her  final  fire   call,  Molly  pumped  800  gallons  of  water  per  minute  for   hours  and  never  missed  a  beat.  

Jeff  told  his  dad  that  he  was  ready  to  give  up.  “Don't  ever   give  up,”  Jeff's  dad  replied.  “You  just  might  miss  out  on   a  blessing  if  you  do.”  Jeff  then  promised  his  dad  that  he   would  never  stop  trying  to  find  Ole  Molly  and  bring  her   home.  A  couple  of  months  later,  Jeff's  dad  died,  and  his   mother  passed  away  a  short  time  later.   Jeff  renewed  his  search  for  Molly  after  his  parents'   deaths,  spending  hundreds  of  hours  on  the  Internet  and  on   the  phone.  More  years  passed  and  Jeff's  search  remained   fruitless.  He  feared  that  the  “grand  old  lady”  was  rusting   away  somewhere,  never  to  be  found.  On  a  cold  day  in   December  2010,  Jeff's  friend  Russ  McGee,  bubbling  over   with  excitement,  called  Jeff  and  told  him  to  check  his   e-­mail.  Russ  had  forwarded  to  Jeff  a  news  clip  from  Fox   News  in  Charlotte,  North  Carolina,  entitled,  “Old  Red   Fire  Truck  Looking  for  a  Home.”  Jeff  was  almost  afraid  to   watch  the  clip  for  fear  of  another  disappointment.  In  the   news  clip,  the  owner  of  a  1927  LaFrance  showed  various   important  papers,  including  one  that  showed  that  the  truck   had  been  built  for  the  town  of  Thomaston,  Georgia.  It  was   Molly!   Although  the  fire  truck  was  for  sale,  the  asking   price  proved  to  be  far  beyond  Jeff's  means  and  triple  the   actual  worth  of  the  antique  fire  truck.  Although  the  city   leaders  of  Thomaston  very  much  wanted  to  bring  Molly   back  to  the  area,  the  price  was  not  within  the  city's  budget,   either.  Hoping  that  he  would  find  an  ally  in  Truett  Cathy,   the  founder  of  Chick-­fil-­A  and  the  owner  of  The  Rock   Ranch  near  Thomaston,  Jeff  enlisted  the  help  of  his  friend   Jeff  Manley,  manager  of  The  Rock  Ranch.

Mr.  Cathy  was   willing  to  help,   but  he  told  Jeff   Sanders  point   blank,  “Get  the   price  down.”   According  to   Jeff  Manley,  Mr.   Cathy  loves  old   fire  trucks,  but   he  also  loves   “horse  trading.”   After  months   David  Lee  Stewart,  age  3,  admires  Molly’s   of  difficult   new  red  paint.   negotiations,   a  selling  price  was  agreed  upon.  Mr.  Cathy  purchased  

A  collection  of  antique  vehicles,  including  Molly,   is  on  display  in  Truett’s  Barn,  a  27,000-­square-­ foot  facility  at  The  Rock  Ranch,  near  Thomaston,   Georgia.  Truett’s  Barn  is  open  to  visitors  during   The  Rock  Ranch’s  regular  operating  hours.   Upcoming  events  at  The  Rock  Ranch  include   Springtime  on  the  Farm,  Fun  in  the  Summer  Time,   Celebrate  America,  and  Fall  Family  Fun  days.  The   Rock  Ranch  is  also  available  for  corporate  events,   family  reunions,  and  other  gatherings.  For  more   information,  visit  www.therockranch.com.

the  fire  truck,  then  gave  it  to  the  city  of  Thomaston  in   appreciation  of  the  support  The  Rock  Ranch  receives  from   its  community.  “(Mr.  Cathy)  is  so  genuinely  thankful  that   God  has  given  him  the  resources  to  bless  others,”  says  Jeff   Manley.   The  dream  of  welcoming  Molly  back  home  came   true  in  December  2011.  Jeff  Manley  recalls  that  a  small   group  of  tough,  burly  firemen  learned  of  Molly's  return   and  came  to  watch  her  roll  into  town  on  a  trailer.  It  was  a   solemn,  emotional  time  as  these  men  silently  pondered   their  own  special  memories  of  Molly,  perhaps  of  admiring   her  in  a  parade  or  watching  their  fathers  or  grandfathers   fight  fires  with  her.  “It  was  as  quiet  as  a  church,”  said  Jeff.   Since  the  city  of  Thomaston  does  not  have  a  place   to  house  Molly,  she  is  now  on  display  in  Truett's  Barn  at   The  Rock  Ranch  for  all  to  see  and  enjoy,  complete  with   a  brand  new  set  of  BF  Goodrich  Silvertown  tires.  Charles   McDaniel,  son  of  fire  chief  C.W.  McDaniel,  and  Von   Mitchell  donated  funds  to  have  pinstriper  Rob  Cochrane   paint  all  the  striping  and  lettering  by  hand,  just  as  it   would  have  been  done  85  years  ago  when  Molly  was  first   delivered  to  Thomaston.  As  Safety  Officer  at  The  Rock   Ranch,  Jeff  Sanders  can  visit  Molly  often,  as  can  anyone   who  wants  to  remember  the  days  when  a  shiny  red  fire   truck,  a  gleaming  brass  bell,  and  an  Orange  Crush  were   just  about  all  it  took  to  make  a  perfect  afternoon  for  a   child.  This  summer,  Jeff  will  get  an  opportunity  he  missed   years  ago:  he  will  ride  on  Molly  in  Thomaston’s  Fourth  of   July  parade.  Molly's  glory  days  are  here  again.

Eagle & Lion Brew Pub Mark Broe

One of Griffinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s newest businesses, the Eagle & Lion Brew Pub, is distinctive in many ways. Not only is it Griffinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only brew pub, it is the only brew pub within a forty mile radius of Griffin. The Eagle & Lion is one of only three brew pubs in the nation, and the only one in the Southeast, to specialize in Real Ale, a cask-­conditioned ale that is served from the vessel in which final fermentation took place. Mark Broe, the Eagle & Lionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s owner and brewer, became a brewer because of his affinity for Real Ale, which is less processed than most beers because it is not filtered, pasteurized, or artificially carbonated. An Atlanta native, Mark trained at Brewlab at the University of Sunderland and was head brewer at Grand Union Brewery in London for several years before returning to the United States. In August 2011, he began renovating space in the old Coca-­Cola bottling plant for his own brew pub. Business has been brisk since the Eagle & Lion Brew Pub opened on March 14, serving a variety of beers, wines, spirits, and of course, Real Ale. Weekend nights when the band is playing are especially popular, as are Tuesdays, which are team trivia nights. The Eagle & Lion offers pub-­type food, including burgers, sandwiches, and salads. The most popular menu item so far is fish and chips, which is fresh, wild-­caught Alaskan cod in a beer batter, served with what most of us call â&#x20AC;&#x153;fries.â&#x20AC;? The tasty Reuben sandwich is the pubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second most popular menu item. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a restaurant. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a bar,â&#x20AC;? says Mark of his business. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a place where people come to meet. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the most important aspect of this establishment.â&#x20AC;? Markâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goal is for the Eagle & Lion to become the Griffin areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;localâ&#x20AC;? (a term used in England to describe an areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most popular gathering place). He wants people to enjoy conversations with their friends at the Eagle & Lion, without the distractions of loud music or sports games blaring on televisions. Mark really likes his adopted hometown of Griffin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a town where people belong,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a sense of place here.â&#x20AC;? He hopes that the Eagle and Lion will have a presence in Griffin for years to come. Says Mark, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want this to be my home. This is where I want to settle.â&#x20AC;?

4(DVW7D\ORU6WUHHW*ULIĂ&#x20AC;Q*$_ZZZJULIĂ&#x20AC;QEUHZSXEFRP_HPDLOLQIR#JULIĂ&#x20AC;QEUHZSXEFRP Uncluttered, Inc., a professional organizing business located in Griffin, began on the |  Saralyn  Fountain  and  Pam  Barbee beach. As Saralyn Fountain enjoyed the sand and surf, she began thinking ahead to her retirement from years as a co-­founder and co-­director of Stepping Stones Educational Therapy Center. Saralyn realized that she wanted to retire to something, and because of her natural affinity for organization and order, quickly settled upon professional organizing. Saralyn knew that her similarly gifted friend Pam Barbee, who was also enjoying the beach that day, would be a great business partner. Pam was seeking a new direction after a career in outside sales and quickly agreed to join Saralynâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s business venture, revealing to Saralyn her longtime interest in the field of professional organizing. Uncluttered, Inc. was incorporated in July 2011. Saralyn and Pam use their organizational abilities to help clients achieve calming, tranquil environments in their homes. They usually encourage clients to tackle one project at a time in manageable, three-­hour increments, sometimes giving the client â&#x20AC;&#x153;homeworkâ&#x20AC;? assignments, such as trying on and discarding unneeded clothing. This focused approach keeps customers from feeling overwhelmed by a project and helps them prepare for Saralyn and Pamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s next visit. The ladies have found that people often accumulate a surplus of items related to their interests and hobbies, whether reading, knitting, fishing, cooking, or carpentry. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We tell them that if they have a place for (the items), itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s okay,â&#x20AC;? says Pam. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If not, they might need to re-­think.â&#x20AC;? Saralyn and Pam encourage customers to donate or recycle items that they no longer need. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a win-­win,â&#x20AC;? says Saralyn. Potential customers are provided an initial assessment for $50 and an estimate of the number of hours required for each job. The cost of the initial assessment is deducted from the final price if the customer retains the services of Uncluttered, Inc. While working with customers, Saralyn and Pam provide tips for staying organized in the future. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Delayed decisions equal clutter,â&#x20AC;? says Pam. The ladies encourage customers to immediately discard unneeded items, such as junk mail, and thus avoid future problem areas. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(Getting organized) really promotes a calming environment,â&#x20AC;? Saralyn says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Life is short. We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to spend our time looking for things.â&#x20AC;? Saralyn Fountain and Pam Barbee are members of the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO) and the Georgia chapter of NAPO (Ga-­NAPO). They are also certified designers for Shelf Genie, a manufacturer of custom-­made glide-­out shelving.

After many years of using traditional chemicals, Bridget saw the effects these can have on a person and switched the entire operation over to â&#x20AC;&#x153;green,â&#x20AC;? that is, using chemicals and methods that are natural and environmentally safe. At a clientâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s request the more traditional chemicals can be used. Bridget and Richard are Verified Home Cleaning Pros, meaning that their insurance and business standings are monitored by an independent party and must be kept up-­to-­date. Squeaky Clean Inc. is a member of the Chamber of Commerce in both Spalding and Pike counties. The company is currently working on their drug-­free workplace certification. Squeaky Clean Inc. is also associated with the non-­profit organizations Cleaning for Heroes and Cleaning for Cancer. According to Operations Manager and Team Leader Paula Lyons, Squeaky Cleanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s services are more than just cleaning, they are about making a difference in a clientâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quality of life. Paula says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;(Bridget and Richard) are people who will stand by what they say.â&#x20AC;? Squeaky Cleanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s customers must agree; the business has a client retention rate of 95%. All crew members at Squeaky Clean Inc. make sure that clients get everything they pay for, and then some, says Paula. The thriving business works every day to make their mission statement a reality: to provide quality services at affordable prices, putting people and our community above monetary gain. 6TXHDN\&OHDQ,QFRIIHUV)5((FRQVXOWDWLRQVWRGHYHORSDSHUVRQDOL]HGFOHDQLQJSODQIRUHDFKFOLHQW¡VQHHGV)RU PRUHLQIRUPDWLRQYLVLWWKHLUZHEVLWHRUĂ&#x20AC;QGWKHPRQ)DFHERRN

Layne Singleton Eight year old Layne Singleton had an idea for a business; helped find, remodel, and decorate a location; and is a now a hands-­on business owner. While traveling in Italy in February 2011, Layne loved sampling gelato, an Italian version of sorbet, but noticed that the shops were often out of her favorite flavors. Layne decided to open her own shop back home in Griffin, well stocked with plenty of sorbets, ice cream, and other treats. Laynie Bugâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sweets and Treats, in a cheerful red building with white trim across the street from Roseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in Griffin, will celebrate its one-­year anniversary in June. Laynie Bugâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s serves ice cream flavors with attitude, like salted caramel bacon; coffee and donuts; and Mexican chocolate, made with habanero peppers. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Naughty American,â&#x20AC;? with peanut brittle, chocolate, and cherries. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;Elvisâ&#x20AC;? is made with bananas, peanut butter, and bacon. All ice creams are homemade by Chef Keith at High Roads Craft Ice Cream in Atlanta; most ingredients used are organic. For flavors such as blueberry cobbler, turtle cheesecake, and pineapple upside down cake, the actual dessert is prepared, then mixed in with the ice cream. Berry lemonade and red berry sorbets taste like the Italian gelato that inspired Layne to open the shop. More traditional flavors, like strawberry, peach, chocolate, and vanilla are also available.Various flavors of homemade fudge, including chocolate walnut, orange cream, and cappuccino, also tempt customers. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let this entrepreneurâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s youth make you think sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not serious about her business. Once asked if she was too young to be working at the shop, second-­grader Layne shot back, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m the owner.â&#x20AC;? Laynie Bugâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is open Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 12:00-­9:00 pm; Fridays and Saturdays 12:00-­10:00 pm; and Sundays 1:00-­9:00 pm.

Health Insurance Savings for Members - Group rates for small businesses with few employees - Health Savings Accounts available Our MemberCare Alliance Chamber of Commerce-sponsored insurance programs began in 1994. Since that time, we have introduced programs in over 120 Chambers of Commerce in Georgia. We have nearly 2,600 enrolled businesses covering 34,100 small business employees. These programs were developed to give small and medium-sized Chamber member businesses access to discounted insurance products. We work through local independent insurance agents to make available comprehensive health insurance, limited-benefit health plans, long-term care insurance and supplemental coverage like dental insurance, term life insurance, disability income coverage, and vision care insurance. Products are offered through a variety of the top insurance carriers, and most products have some type of negotiated premium discount designed to save you money. Now, you can give your employees quality benefit packages like those that large companies provide.

For more information or to get a quote on the MemberCare Alliance program please call 770-­579-­1214 or 800-­782-­8254, or email us at info@purchasingalliance.com.

ullying is a hot topic these days: a major concern for young people, parents, teachers, and school administrators. Being bullied can take an emotional toll that stays with a child for years to come. While there is widespread agreement that a problem exists, solutions seem to be in short supply. Martial arts training is a good SODFHWRVWDUWORRNLQJIRUDQVZHUVWRWKLVEDIĂ LQJSUREOHP both for those who are being bullied, and surprisingly, even for the bullies themselves. It is one way to bring attention to the problem of bullying and give students a safe place to obtain â&#x20AC;&#x153;toolsâ&#x20AC;? to help solve the problem.

Jim Brown, CMA's Program Director, says that their studio encourages parents to talk about self-defense with their families, so that children will know what to do if the need arises.

A key component of martial arts is teaching students to believe in themselves. CMA incorporates into their program â&#x20AC;&#x153;Black Belt Values,â&#x20AC;? which promote positive traits such as IRFXVGLVFLSOLQHFRQĂ&#x20AC;GHQFHVHOIUHVSHFWSHUVHYHUDQFHDQG integrity.

How can martial arts help young people who are engaging in aggressive behavior, or â&#x20AC;&#x153;bullying,â&#x20AC;? other students? Kevin Brown believes that some â&#x20AC;&#x153;bulliesâ&#x20AC;? are not necessarily behaving as such on purpose. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They think they're being the class clown,â&#x20AC;? he says. The students are taught that some behaviors that they may perceive as funny are actually bullying. According to Kevin, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We can bring to light what they're actually doing as opposed to what they think they're doing.â&#x20AC;? Kevin says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some people think that if you teach a kid to punch and kick, they'll be a bully.â&#x20AC;? He believes that the opposite is often true: teaching young people to use physical force only when physically threatened, and as a last resort, will prevent them from bullying others. David Hart, also a senior instructor at CMA, believes that bullies act the way they GREHFDXVHWKH\ODFNVHOIFRQĂ&#x20AC;GHQFHDQGDVHQVHRIVHOI

otherwise be misdirected into bullying. Similarly, students who can demonstrate such skills might be less likely targets for bullies.

Jim says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The beauty of martial arts is that it encompasses not just the physical aspects of the 'sport,' but the mental and emotional lessons as well.â&#x20AC;? He believes that misplaced aggression and a â&#x20AC;&#x153;win-at-all costsâ&#x20AC;? mindset contribute to the bullying problem and a lack of self-esteem. In contrast, he believes that students who learn proper values are much better prepared for OLIH VXQFHUWDLQWLHV7KHLPSURYHGSK\VLFDOĂ&#x20AC;WQHVVVSHHG VWUHQJWKDQGĂ H[LELOLW\WKDWFRPHZLWKPDUWLDODUWVWUDLQLQJ FDQDOVRERRVWVWXGHQWV FRQĂ&#x20AC;GHQFHLQDKHDOWK\ZD\

Kristie Hall, a pre-kindergarten teacher at Cowan Road Elementary, sees martial arts training as a relevant answer to the bullying problem. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Someone needs to pay attention to the children who are being bullied,â&#x20AC;? Kristie says. She believes that martial arts training gives VWXGHQWVWKHFRQĂ&#x20AC;GHQFHWRVWDQGXSIRUZKDWLVULJKW DQGKHOSVWKHPGLVFRYHUWKHLURZQXQLTXHVWUHQJWKVDQG abilities.

According to Jim, while karate and other forms of martial arts (jiu-jitsu, grappling, and Israeli combatives are blended into CMA's program) will always be used for self-defense, in recent years, martial arts have also become performing arts.

How  well  do  you  actually  know  the  people  in  your  life  –  whether   they’re  close  to  your  heart  or  just  close  to  your  home?  What  about   the  girl  down  the  street,  your  best  friend  of  10  years,  the  boy  in   band,  the  head  cheerleader,  your  coworker,  your  boss,  the  class   clown?  How  well  do  you  know  their  struggles?  Probably  not  well   at  all.  The  head  cheerleader  smiles  at  the  crowd  and  is  secretly   cutting  herself  in  the  bathroom  stall.  Your  sister  has  a  secret  drug   addiction.  The  boy  in  the  band  has  a  dad  who  gets  drunk  and  beats   him  up  every  night.  Your  coworker  just  found  out  her  husband  is   cheating  and  plans  to  harm  the  woman,  her  husband,  and  then…herself.   As  for  the  girl  down  the  street,  she’s  a  victim  of  rape.  More  than   once.  By  her  Uncle  Joe.  And  the  class  clown?  He  suffers  from  severe   depression  and  is  barely  hanging  on.  Are  you  with  the  kids  who  make   fun  of  the  band  kid  or  the  “other  woman”?  When  you  do  discover  their   struggle,  if  you  even  care  to  ask,  what  will  you  do?  The  person  you   pass  in  the  hall  or  driving  down  the  road  may  be  just  another  face,   but  do  you  ever  wonder  what  they  are  going  through?  So,  before  you   give  the  waitress  a  hard  time  for  messing  up  your  order,  consider  her   day.  When  the  doctor  takes  too  long  to  give  you  your  x-­ray  results,   think  about  the  surgery  he  just  performed.  Did  his  patient  survive?   The  point  is,  no  matter  the  exterior  of  a  person,  you  never  know   what  they  are  going  through…pain  or  happiness.  Open  your  eyes.  Treat   people  with  respect,  whether  you  think  they  deserve  it  or  not.
