In America, there is a sport for every season and an eventual champion in every sport. With winter behind us, the National Football League (NFL) is celebrating the victorious Seattle Seahawks, winners of the Super Bowl. This spring, March Madness will produce a college basketball champion, followed by this summer’s National Basketball Association (NBA) champion. Finally, in the fall, Major League Baseball (MLB) will crown the winner of the World Series, and the cycle and seasons will start all over again. Collectively, millions will gather to watch others win. And then there’s you; me and countless others, many of whom may never play before thousands, score while millions watch or lift up a coveted trophy. The networks may never record your devotion to God, the commitment you show your family or the smiles you dawn to keep from crying, God is recording it all. You may be barely noticed down here, but you are celebrated where it counts the most. You may be underpaid on earth, but in the longest season of our lives, you will be treated like royalty. THANK GOD, Jesus gave us a glimpse of our lives to come. He also gave us reasons to celebrate right now. The life of Jesus, which contains perfection, power and no penalties set us up to win, for good. On a particular day, heaven’s cameras were rolling and recorded the event of a lifetime. More accurately, this was a one of a kind, never to be repeated, unparalleled act for all ages. Far greater than a Super Bowl victory, Jesus died to win souls. Yours, mine, your momma’s, your daddy’s, your children’s, the rest of your relatives and all of your friends. If that wasn’t enough, He died for sinners, saints, haters, pretenders, contenders, the losers and the winners. Christ’s victory was and is so complete, it included people whom we don’t yet know, but He knows them all by name. His resurrection touched and still touches people who speak other languages and He communicates with all of them. In fact, no one was left out of this victory, past, present, or future. Well, except for those who refuse to accept God’s gracious offer. The play was for all the marbles so to speak. It all came down to this: God wanted to extend His love to people so He handed the love ball to Adam who fumbled. God threw Adam’s past to Jesus who scored. The power of the Spirit raised Jesus from the dead and we were handed the trophy. Now we share God’s love and Jesus victory as Joint Heirs. We’re on the winning team. Jesus fought. We won! Jesus death, killed our past. Jesus burial, buried our past

and His resurrection revived our true lives as intended by God. And since all righteousness is fulfilled through the actions of Jesus, we really can say, “We Won”. As you celebrate Heaven’s Championship, the Resurrection of Jesus, invite God’s Son into your heart as your personal Savior and Lord. We cannot win without Him, but with Him we can all rejoice!

Internet-based Barter

Four Things You Should Know if You Barter Courtesy of T. Dennis Connally Consultant, P.C., Certified Public Accountant, 8483 Campbellton Street, 770.920.2890, tdconnally.com

Bartering is the trading of one product or service for another. Usually there is no exchange of cash. Barter may take place on an informal one-on-one basis between individuals and businesses, or it can take place on a third party basis through a barter exchange company. A barter exchange is any person or organization with members or clients that contract with each other (or with the barter exchange) to jointly trade or barter property or services. The term does not include arrangements that provide solely for the informal exchange of similar services on a noncommercial basis. Unlike one-on-one bartering, members of exchanges are not obligated to barter or purchase directly from a seller. Instead, when a barter exchange member sells a product or a service to another member, their barter account

CheckMax Pro Opens Location in Villa Rica

The Internet provides a new medium for the barter exchange industry. Pure Internet-based barter companies differ from traditional, organized trade exchanges in that they do not have a physical office. In modern Internet barter exchanges, there is an agreement or process in place to value goods and services exchanged, which is facilitated by the barter exchange for a fee. A barter exchange functions primarily as the organizer of a marketplace where members buy and sell products and services.

Here are four facts about bartering: 1. Barter exchanges. A barter exchange is an organized marketplace where members barter products or services. Some exchanges operate out of an office and others over the Internet. All barter exchanges are required to issue Form 1099-B, Proceeds from Broker and Barter Exchange Transactions. The exchange must give a copy of the form to its members who barter and file a copy with the IRS. 2. Bartering income. Barter and trade dollars are the same as real dollars for tax purposes and must be reported on a tax return. Both parties must report as income the fair market value of the product or service they get. 3. Tax implications. Bartering is taxable in the year it occurs. The tax rules may vary based on the type of bartering that takes place. Barterers may owe income taxes, self-employment taxes, employment taxes or excise taxes on their bartering income. 4. Reporting rules. How you report bartering on a tax return varies. If you are in a trade or business, you normally report it on Form 1040,Schedule C, Profit or Loss from Business.

CheckMax Pro recently opened a new location in Villa Rica at the corner of Highways 61 and 78. The location offers traditional full service check cashing services as well as a very modern direct deposit program. “Many of our customers are required to have their payroll or federal benefits directly deposited,” said location owner Al Makhani. “As an independent check cashing company equipped with smart technology programs, we have the ability to offer customized account management similar to a banking institution, but with greater flexibility.” For example, CheckMax Pro customers are able to use direct deposit services without using an ATM, customers can withdraw up to $2500 in a 24 hour period, and for locals who receive federal benefits (Social Security, retirement or VA benefits), the program offers up to four days early access to their benefits. In addition, these customers do not have to go to the social security office to enroll. Enrollment can be completed at any CheckMax Pro location. Claiming to offer the lowest fees in the region, CheckMax Pro’s technology also makes cashing a check an affordable, quick and a secure transaction. “After a customer has visited our location one time, they are registered in our system. Our smart technology cross references visual pictures so that repeat customers are identified quickly,” says Al. “It gives us an opportunity to service a repeat customer and not have to duplicate the same data entry over and over as if they were a first time client. This smart technology is highly secure and allows us to protect the privacy and identity of our customers at all times. Finally, our technology makes it easy to replace lost or stolen debit cards immediately.” In addition to their new location in Villa Rica, CheckMax Pro has a second location at 123 Bankhead Highway in Carrollton.

dining Jesus in the Passover meal set for April 14th Café 4:13 and Kingdom Dominion Church are teaming up to present a special evening designed to bring the Passover meal into greater significance for Christians. The Last Supper was a Passover meal that Jesus celebrated with the 12 disciples. The Passover meal was of great significance and symbolism for the Jews. The foods on the Seder plate represent different events or eras of Judaism. Many of the foods also have a direct tie to Christ. Fred Mello, owner of Café 4:13, started hosting the meal once a year, 11 years ago, after a trip to Israel. The first meal had six guests, the second year had 20, and it just grew from there.

Last year, Cafe 4:13 was originally the site of the dinner, but interest grew so much that Peachtree Community Church offered to host it, and around 300 people ended up coming. In addition to enjoying the unique foods associated with the Passover dinner, Fred also displays several items that he brought back from Israel, and explains their significance. Items include a Shofar, which is a ram’s horn that is always blown before any feast mentioned in the Bible. A prayer shawl called a Tallit will be shown, and the accompanying Tzitzit, which are special knots attached to the Tallit. This is a chance for those that are interested in experiencing first-hand some of

the foods and rituals referred to in the Bible. An English to Spanish translator will also be present. The event is free, although an offering will be taken to help with the cost of the food. Reservations must be made in advance, so that the right amount of food can be prepared. You can sign up at Café 4:13, located in the Publix shopping center on Mirror Lake Boulevard. You may also call 770.459.3600 to reserve your seats. Jesus in the Passover starts at 6pm on Monday, April 14th. It will be held at Kingdom Dominion Church, located in the Tri-County Plaza at 451 West Bankhead Highway.

Golden City Cruisers celebrates 12 years Did you know that one of the oldest car clubs in West Georgia, The Golden City Cruisers, hails from Villa Rica? Over the course of a typical year, the “Cruisers” will hold cruise-ins on the third Saturday of each month from March to September at the Mill Amphitheater in Villa Rica. The cruise-ins are a family fun event with cakewalks, music, 50/50 drawings, and lots and lots of beautiful classic cars, trucks, and bikes. The grand finale of the year is the Car Show in October, that usually draws over 120 cars. It is at this show that the cruisers culminate all of their hard work, and award the charity monies they have raised over the year; $10,000 was given last year. The club has supported groups like the Villa Rica Shop with a COP program, the Tanner Foundation (to provide cancer patient’s transportation), a special initiative to provide distracted driving education classes to high school students, Toys for Tots, and many other equally important groups. Service to others, and a good time, is the glue that keeps this group alive and vibrant in the community. Look for them at the Fourth of July parade in Fairfield, retirement home festivities, church outings, and grand openings in the area. Check them out at www.goldencitycruisers.com or look them up on Facebook. Anyone wishing to be a sponsor or join the club may check out their website.

CCO celebrating twenty-second year The Christian Community Orchestra is celebrating their 22nd year of serving the community with music. Rehearsals are held at Central Baptist Church, 5811 Central Church Road. The string orchestra meets at 6pm and the full orchestra meets at 7pm. There is no audition or age limit for members, participants need to be at an intermediate level or at least have completed two levels of basic books on their instrument. Instruments used in the orchestra are band instruments plus violins, violas, cellos, and string basses. The CCO will be working on the program for their next concert which will be held May 6.

Charlie By Tim Collins

Band

On March 6th, News & Views publisher Tim Collins had the opportunity to interview Charlie Daniels. The Charlie Daniels Band will be appearing at Mill Town Music Hall in Bremen on April 12th. You can read the entire interview online at www. newsandviewsusa.com/interviews.

I know you just launched a tour. Is there a particular theme for this tour? Not really. Once in a while when we have an album come out, we’ll name the tour after the album, but I hadn’t really thought too much about it. I wasn’t sure if I should name it “Off the Grid Tour” or not, because the new album is called Off The Grid. We haven’t really discussed it all that much. We just started touring last weekend.

You tour a lot! I was looking at your schedule. How many dates do you have this year? We’ll do around 100 to 110 this year, and then we’ll do 10 Grand Ole Opry appearances, probably some recording, and I’ll do probably somewhere around 200 to 300 interviews, roughly traveling around 100,000 miles – enough to keep a 77 year-old pretty busy.

I was going to say – I am 54, but I don’t think I could keep up with that pace – that’s amazing! Oh, I imagine you probably could. You’ve got to enjoy every facet of what you do, and I DO enjoy every facet. My favorite thing, and what keeps me going is playing live. I love to do live shows. But I love it all. I love doing interviews, and talking to people, the recording, the writing, the whole thing. I don’t think you can survive in this business or any other one that involves a lot of traveling unless you love what you do.

On April 12th, you are coming to Mill Town Music Hall in Bremen. What can fans expect? You know there are songs that people buy tickets to hear us play, and we realize that. If I didn’t do Devil Went Down to Georgia, and Long

Haired Country Boy, and Legend of Wooley Swamp and the things that people have heard us do over the years, people would feel like they were cheated, and I would feel like I was cheating them. So we always do the songs that people have a perfect right to expect us to play. And then, I usually have about four or five places in the set that we can put some new stuff, maybe old stuff we haven’t done in a while. This year, two of the songs that we do will be off our new “Off The Grid” album – the Bob Dylan song album that we are doing. We might grab old songs - something

do an album of Bob Dylan songs.” We really enjoyed it. The band really got into it, and the guys really played well and were really creative on it, and I am very happy with the result.

My favorite thing, and what keeps me going is playing live. I love to do live shows.

I am always writing new material. Constantly, I’ve always got some songs in the works at one stage or another of being finished. I told somebody the other day I need to live to be 110 years old to get everything that I want to get done before I pass away. So, I’ve always got something to do. I have not been bored in years. I’ve always got something interesting to do - something I enjoy.

that was not played on the radio a lot but something that people like and something that people enjoy the band playing. We always try to have a few surprises in there.

Tell me a little bit about “Off the Grid”? What inspired you to do that album, and what are some of the songs on it? We were approached by the folks that do the Hell on Wheels cable television show. It takes place back in the 1800s, and they wanted us to do a song for it. But, since it takes place in the 1800s, we had to use instruments that were around in the 1800s. We did that, and we were so taken with the way that it sounded – it was a whole new sound for us. And we said, “We should do an album”. I guess it had always been in the back of my mind to do some Dylan music, and I thought “What a great time to do that – let’s

Arts & Entertainment

What is the most unusual thing that you can remember happening at one of your concerts? Well I remember I walked out on stage one night in Washington with my pants unzipped in front of several thousand people. (laughs) That was a little different experience.

Are you writing any new material?

You have played in huge arenas, and some smaller venues, like Mill Town Music Hall. What is different about playing in a smaller venue? I don’t differentiate between venues. The people at Mill Town will get the same show that a large arena would get. Playing at a smaller venue is a little more intimate. You feel a little closer to the folks than you do in a venue where the crowd is way back, and they have a big barrier between you and the crowd. But like I say, I just go on and do the same show. When people buy tickets, they deserve a show, and when they come to see us they’re going to get the best available that night.

If you look back over the span of your career, how would you say that you have changed? I have mellowed a lot. I am able to view things a little different than I used to. I take the long view a lot more. I attach importance to things now that I feel need to have importance attached to them, and things that do not really matter I just ignore them and move on.


How old were you when you first started playing the fiddle, and gave your first public performance? I was about 16 when I first started playing. I’ve never been bashful about performing. Suffice it to say it was probably the first time that I could scratch out a tune. The first band that I ever played in that was making money was started back in 1956. But it was not the band I have now.

Of all of your songs, which ones are the most popular commercially? The Devil Went Down to Georgia? Absolutely. That’s our signature. I mean that’s the tune everybody identifies us with.

You’ve another song called “Georgia”. Does the state of Georgia have any significance to you? Oh yeah. I have a history with Georgia. Back when I was a kid I lived in Valdosta for a while and I lived in Baxley for a while. It’s a special place to me and it always has been. And I love the name Georgia. It’s kind of a poetic sort of a name.

What are your plans for the future? Doing the same thing I have been doing. More records, more touring, more Grand Ole Opry, more creating music and recording music, and being a part of this business that I love so much. I have no plans for retirement and have made no plans for retirement. Obviously I’ll have to quit one of these days for one reason or another, I mean, if for no other reason than I die. But as long as it’s God’s will for me to do this, and as long as people want to hear me, I’ll be out here doing it.

The Charlie Daniels Band will be at Mill Town Music Hall April 12. Visit www.milltownmusichall.com for more information/tickets.

On March 5th, Tim Collins, publisher of News & Views, and his son Dylan interviewed country artist Deana Carter. Deana just released a new album, and also talks about her upcoming appearance at Mill Town Music Hall as a part of The Heart Behind the Music Showcase. You can read the entire interview at www.newsandviewsusa.com/interviews.

I bet you have a pretty busy schedule right now, since you just released your new album “Southern Way of Life”. Oh yeah, it is. It’s just that I am in between having to write for a Nashville show, and traveling, and being a mom – I’ve got football practice this afternoon. It’s like, “Who am I?,…Where am I?”

Were a lot of the songs on the new album autobiographical, based on personal experiences? Oh yeah, absolutely. I’ve always done that on all of my records. It’s always been very personal, very real. It’s very cathartic to be able to sing through what you are going through. I’m so blown away and grateful that I get to do that.

I know this is the first album in six years for you. Did you just sort of take off for a while? Oh gosh (laughs), I wish I could have just taken off, and gone to Kenny Chesney’s island and just hung out. Basically, just, my son got into school and preschool, and I had to pull back. I’ve still been doing shows, and obviously I am doing a lot more shows this year. I’ve been writing a whole lot of songs. But everything was a lot more under the radar than in front of everybody. I had to pull back


“Getting pregnant with my son was a definite wake up call for me that I needed God – that I needed more than what I was able do myself.” from promoting me, me, me, because my focus shifted to being a mom, and focusing on my son and what’s best for him.

I love the lyrics to your new song “Do or Die”. What was the inspiration? Well, honestly it came to a point where I was a single mom, and living in Hollywood, and life was kind of foggy for me. I’ve got this career that I had a lot of success at, but it’s kind of waning, and I’ve got this child that is looking to me to take care of him. It was just like an assessment, and really getting into my prayer time and asking God to help guide me. Like, what’s going to happen to us – are we done or are we going to keep going? The message was you just really do what you have to do, to do what you are HERE to do. I sat, literally, on my kitchen floor with my guitar after my devotion time and I just sang out how I was feeling. And the second verse is about what Jesus went through in His life. You know, He did what He had to do, because that’s what He was HERE to do. That’s why He is in the second verse.

Has faith become a lot more important in your life through the years? Absolutely! And you know the thing about it is when we’re running fullsteam ahead and life is going by and we think we’ve got it all covered, we don’t look to God – we don’t think we need God. It’s sad but it’s true. We all do that. And I think that he gives us enough rope – He never lets go – but He’ll give us enough rope to where we’re like “bungeeing “ almost to the quicksand, you know. And then you cry out for help and you get closer, and you start realizing how much help you need. Getting pregnant with my son was a definite wake up call for me that I needed God – that I needed more than what I was able do myself.

On July 17th, you are coming to Mill Town Music Hall to perform in The Heart Behind the Music. Have you done any shows like that before, and what will that show be like, compared to a normal concert? Well, the fun thing is that it is in the round, and there are artists that I haven’t seen in years, so you get to check up, you get to re-saturate yourself with talented people that you miss. It’s such a great reminder of how we are all unique and all have a lot to offer. It’s just really, really fun! I am so grateful to be a part of it. And they included me in quite a few of these events that they are having because I am able to sit on a stool and play guitar and tell a story about songs I have written. It’s a fun evening to be a part of. And to do it in the South – I can’t wait.

Thanks so much we really appreciate you taking the time to talk with us! Oh my gosh. I am so grateful. Thank you for taking the time. You know it’s interesting doing all these interviews because I’ll still sit here and go like “Who am I”? And who I am, is somebody that – I’ve been through a lot and I don’t want people to feel like they are going through it alone. If I can be encouraging in any way, that’s the point.

Do you remember where you were when you first heard Strawberry Wine on the radio? I want to say I was in my car driving home when I heard it. I just kind of pulled over, and boo-hood, and freaked out and couldn’t believe it. I mean we did tons of radio promos so I would hear it on the radio at the station, but as far as getting caught off guard and seeing that I didn’t have to MAKE somebody play it (laughs) it was definitely in my car driving home.

Of the ten songs on your new album, is there one song that would give someone who had never heard your music the best impression of what you are about as an artist? WOW – That’s a great question – that’s a tough question. When you’re sequencing an album, you want people to feel you. I do as an artist and a producer. Sequencing means everything. It’s like getting a massage or riding a roller coaster. You don’t just go out the gate. You kind of work your way into it, and then it’s a great experience. I mean I would probably pick the middle song. “I’ll Save My Love for You” might be a sleeper on the record. It’s about how it’s never too late to have a white wedding – that’s one. “Southern Way of Life” has a sense of humor, so that’s a side of me. There’s also the real rebellious “I Don’t Want To” which is like, I know I’m supposed to love you but you screwed me over, and I’m mad and I don’t want to love you, but I’m trying to walk through what I am supposed to do . There’s all kinds of me all over that record. I guess I would pick 1, 5 and 10 .

News & Views publisher Tim Collins spoke with David Ragsdale of Kansas on March 3rd, 2014, in advance of the March 8th show at Mill Town Music Hall in Bremen. David is the violinist and plays some guitar for the band, which is celebrating their 40th year. Here are some excerpts from the interview. Read the complete interview at www.newsandviewsusa.com/interviews.

Growing up, Kansas was literally my favorite band, so this is a big thrill for me. It was one of mine too. I am not an original member. I was a big Kansas fan coming up.

How did you become a member of Kansas? Do you remember when the album “Power” came out in 1986? Up until this time, Kansas had always had a violin. For that album, they put out an album with no violin. I could actually, in my head, HEAR the notes of the violin. At the suggestion of a friend, I sat down with my 4-track cassette and put Kansas on two of the tracks, and added the violin parts that I was hearing in my head and put it together and sent out a whole bunch of them, I mean I didn’t know exactly how to get it to them. I just started putting them in the hands of anyone I thought might have the most remote possibility of actually getting it to the band. A friend of mine was really good friends with their accountant and he got a tape to Phil Ehart (the Kansas drummer), and Phil was really impressed with it.

What was it like taking the stage with them for the first time? It was (pause) exciting. I hate to wrap it up in a little tiny word like that. The first rehearsal was a very special moment for me.

Do you like playing in small or large venues better or is there really a difference? I really do like the smaller venues. When you get in front of too many people it loses its impact, because you tend to try to pick out people to play to. During the course of the evening you can catch on to someone that you feel like is paying particular attention, and you feel like you can move them, and you kind of aim at them.

22 |

VILLA RICA NEWS & VIEWS

When the audience gets too loud it’s kind of like an overload and you just kind of play to yourself.

You’re talking pretty conservative moral values...The band is very faith driven. Growing up, how often did you practice? Well, I grew up hating the violin, because there was not anyone playing the violin. I was forced to play the violin, but when I got into my early teens I really started practicing guitar. Then all of a sudden Mahavishnu Orchestra with Jerry Goodman (on violin), and Jean-Luc Ponty started showing up and I was like “Woah – wait a minute”. Then I heard Kansas for the first time. I was in high school. I’m pretty sure the first Kansas tune I heard was “Can I Tell You”. And here is this rockin’ violin and that actually had a lot to do with me making the transition back to violin.

Which Kansas song is the hardest to play? Magnum Opus. When we play that one, you set yourself. It’s like the beginning of a football play (laughs). Then the ball is snapped, and then you execute. If you don’t, you lose the game. Also, Journey from Mariabron is no cake-walk.

I would think that it would be really hard to synchronize all of the instruments, because everyone is playing so fast, and the music is so complex. You have to pay very, very close attention. It’s like playing in a symphony orchestra and Phil (the drummer) is the conductor, and you have to execute.

Arts & Entertainment

What do you think makes the band so popular? A bunch of really great songs. What’s fun is seeing the young people whose parents brought them up on Kansas. One of the most satisfying images, that I see a LOT, is you look out at a 14 year-old that has seen a whole bunch of bands, but he’s never seen one like this, that can play. They are standing there flap-jawed. It is one of the most satisfying visual images that I take away from Kansas shows, and it happens frequently.

Most of the songs seem to have a positive message, and I don’t know of any that have any kind of immorality associated with them. Was that an intentional decision? Kansas is from the state of Kansas. You’re talking pretty conservative moral values. Kerry (Kerry Livgren) and Dave Hope (former bass player) are ordained ministers. The band is very faith driven.

What factors would make you feel like, “Man, that was a REALLY GOOD show”? A really good mix on stage, where everything turns out to be just the perfect level. Combine that with audience affection inspired great performances, if that makes any sense. We come out and we do what we do. And if things are just right, we are able to inspire the audience, which in turn inspires us, which in turn more inspires the audience, which in turn more inspires us. It turns into almost like a feeding frenzy. Those are the really good ones. They happen frequently enough to where I can give a description of them.

Is Carry on Wayward Son your most popular song? It’s kind of a toss-up between Carry On and Dust (Dust in the Wind). They’re both still high on the food chain of AOR (Album Oriented Rock).

While preparing for this column, I had a lot of ideas on how it should feel. Some things made me smile, some things made me sad. We’re surrounded by images of beauty. The media bombards us with “acceptable” beauty. So, let’s take a closer look at it. We’re told constantly that we’re not pretty enough, thin enough, tall enough, that our complexion isn’t light enough, lips aren’t full enough, our rear ends aren’t plump enough, our breasts aren’t big enough. I don’t know about you, but I’ve had ENOUGH! Make no mistake, I like you, love a few creature comforts. Things that make us feel good. Things that enhance what our Creator already blessed us with. I’m also very aware, that how we present ourselves to the world, is how the world treats us. Yes, we get one shot at making a fabulous first impression. My question and concern is, what impression are we really leaving? Let’s examine a few of my favorite things. I’m sure you can relate to these. They are a great facial and a great pedicure. Both of these services

be cleansed, buffed, massaged and product applied. All of this leads to the wonderful moment when you smile at your pretty, painted toes. The wonderful moment when your beautiful face is radiant and renewed. Both of these things make us feel amazing. In His Image, we already are. Psalm 139:14 - I will praise Thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. Our lives are a lot like those services where we’re groomed and pruned, but it doesn’t always feel good to us. Life happens and the tough, not so pretty lessons, are preparing us for our destiny, for something greater. So rest assured, that there’s beauty in waiting. We wait in a pedicure, we wait during a facial. Sometimes, the hardest thing to do is to wait on the Lord. He’s designed some beautiful things for you too. It says in Isaiah 40:31 - But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up like eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk and not faint.

and not the overall outward appearance. What makes each of us unique is the combination of flesh, bones, and soul that combines to make us who we are as individuals. This same concept can be translated to your home’s landscape, as well. I know it might seem like a stretch, but hear me out on this. Of course, when we first look at a landscape, we hope to see pretty plants, clean beds, and freshly laid straw - these items are known as the “softscape”. This outward appearance can be fussy, or as low maintenance as you like. The important thing in making a good first impression is clean and neat, but all the fluff is what takes a landscape from good to great. Think about your morning routine - does it take a little or a lot of effort to create your unique look. Do you make a good first impression? Let’s hope so. Now let’s dig a little deeper. Below our outward appearance, humans, have a very strong skeletal system that holds everything up. Without it we would all just be a pile of skin and organs, right? In the landscape a good skeletal system is needed as well - we call it “hardscapes”. The hardscapes comprise the driveway, walkways, patios, paths, etc. that we create in our landscapes. Some of the elements are required. A garage without a driveway cannot serve its intended purpose, but a lot of hardscape elements serve a functional purpose, if the need calls for it. Take a patio for instance, it is a great addition to any back yard; it allows the homeowner to utilize their outdoor space in a clean environment throughout the year. Without the hardscape, the softscape may suffer from overuse, resulting in ruts, compaction and ultimately a big muddy mess. Hardscapes can be made of many types of materials that range in price. A low cost hardscape may be made of concrete. The benefit of concrete is the low installation cost per square foot; however in the long run, it is prone to cracking and costly repairs may be in the future. Loose aggregate is also another lower cost hardscape solution. With proper installation, it can stand up to years of wear and tear with regular upkeep. A hardscape solution we love is decorative concrete pavers. Pavers popularity has sky rocketed in recent years because it is both affordable and beautiful. Pavers come in a wide variety of styles and can be laid in different configurations to give them a somewhat unique semi-custom look. The last option is the most expensive, but don’t let that discourage you - natural stone. Like I said, natural stone can be expensive, but it also gives your outdoor space a very unique, individual look that is both beautiful and timeless. Stone is extremely durable and long lasting with few problems, if installed correctly. When planning your landscape, consider the hardscape “bones” before you jump to all the other fluff and stuff. Although retrofitting a hardscape element after the fact is possible, it can be very disruptive to the landscape. Planning ahead for any patios, pathways, fireplaces can save a lot of headache and money.

Organizing Tips Tips for a More Organized Garage + Kitchen By Joyce Maxwell, Speaker, Designer, Organizer and Recent Recipient of the “Woman of the Year- 2013” by Douglas Co. Chapter ABWA. 770.312.0100, joyce@ makeyourhomeahaven.com.

Happy April! I hope you are finding time to enjoy all the beautiful weather we have been having. This month I want to continue the process of organizing your exterior spaces by providing you with some tips to get your garage in tip top shape before the extremely hot Georgia weather arrives.

GARAGE 1. Move out all vehicles. 2. Pull everything else out. Ideally, you want to pull everything out of the garage and place on driveway or other close by location, but this is not always possible; if that’s the case, work on one section at a time! Remember the best way to create order in your life is to stay focused and not get distracted.

3. Clean. Sweep out garage and swipe down walls and remove cobwebs. Clean light fixtures and replace burned out bulbs.

4. Throw away garbage. Go ahead and toss all obvious garbage. This will give you a clearer picture of what is to be done.

5. Sort. Now that your space is clean, it’s time to start sorting:

VILLA RICA NEWS & VIEWS

Spring Cleaning Guide

Either of these methods will work, so choose the one that makes the most sense to you. Keep in mind there is no right or wrong way when it comes to organizing...keep asking “where would I look for this if I needed it.”. • Sort by like items: screws, clamps, glue, paint, paint brushes, saws OR • Sort by categories: gardening supplies, woodworking supplies, painting supplies 6. Determine storage options. After you have sorted, determine and analyze the situation if you have adequate storage...if not, this is the time to either purchase some shelving, containers etc. or look around your home and see if you have something on hand you can use. Proper storage is extremely important if you don’t want things to get back like they were. When determining what kinds of storage you need remember that open shelving gets dusty, so if you store extra supplies or small appliances from your kitchen, you will want them in some kind of enclosed space (cabinets or tubs). When purchasing containers, stay away from the large sized tubs. I call them caskets, because they’re large enough to hold a body. They aren’t user friendly and become too heavy to manage when full. Smaller tubs also allow for you to break down your organization into smaller groups.

10. Be sure to maintain. This is probably the most important step. Set aside 15 to 30 minutes each week to maintain the space once it’s clean and organized. As you pull into your garage each day, you’ll be thankful you take the time to keep it clean and organized.

Organizing Tips KITCHEN 1. Plan for daily maintenance. We all know organization is not a “once and done” thing, it requires daily maintenance. Having a daily routine will keep your kitchen in good shape, without you having to spend hours at a time working on it. While cleaning the dinner dishes, set aside time to do one extra project. For instance, on Wednesdays you could clean the stove, and on Sundays you could check the fridge for leftovers that should be thrown out. Spend 15 minutes each night putting away everything that has been used since supper and prepare the kitchen for the next day. Get the coffee or tea

tops, then wash cabinet doors (wiping out cabinet interiors as needed). Next, move on to wiping countertops, then under-counter cabinets and finally the floors. As dust and crumbs fall while you’re working, they’re not falling onto areas you’ve already cleaned, so you’ll avoid having to clean an area twice!

4. Work with the space you have. If your kitchen is small, don’t try washing bulky items such as refrigerator shelves and oven racks in the sink, take them to the bathtub or even outside. You’ll have more room, and you’ll be less likely to splash water on the floor.

2. Maximize your dishwasher. These days almost everything is dishwasher

5. Wipe up spills right away. Grab a paper towel and wipe up spills and drips as soon as possible. It’s much easier to clean as you go; even a splash of milk can turn the entire kitchen into a sticky mess once the kids or pets start tracking through it.

are: the nonelectric parts of an electric can opener, drip pans, burner covers, small refrigerator shelves and plastic drawer organizers - just make sure to load plastic items onto the top rack. Some experts believe that dishwashers use less water than hand washing, so there is the potential to conserve water at the same time. Just a reminder - only run the dishwasher when fully loaded and check owners manuals if you are concerned about something being dishwasher safe.

3. Start at the top and work down. When you’re doing a deep cleaning of your kitchen, it makes sense to take it from the top. Start by dusting cabinet

7. Use baskets and decorative boxes for extra storage. Think “outside the box” (no pun intended). If space is limited, place a pretty basket with liner on top of fridge to store bread, chips or other items that clutter countertops. Have a happy Easter and until next month may God’s richest blessing be on you and your family!

Pet Set Pet Care Tip Dogs with Ear Infections

By Dixie Popham - Owner, Pet Set Grooming, 3313 Highway 5 Across from Publix, 770.949.0579 Do you often see your dog scratching its ears, shaking its head, or very irritable with its ears? If so, it could be is suffering from a case of ear infection. Ear infection in dogs can be caused by a lot of factors. It could be due to ear mites, bacterial infections, food allergies, unhealthy environments, and improper dog hygiene. Ear infection in dogs calls for medical attention. While some cases may heal naturally, veterinarians should be involved in the treatment process. It is essential to treat dog ear infection the moment it starts so as not to worsen your dog’s condition. All dog owners have to be well-informed about this disease. Ear infections in dogs can easily be treated and cured. Oftentimes, antibiotics or ear drops are prescribed. There are also home remedies that can help greatly in the treating this particular dog disease. The right treatment procedure depends on what actually have caused the disease. Some ear infections may even be contagious. So if you have other dogs inside your home, make sure that they don’t associate too much with the infected ones. Regularly check the ears of your dogs to see if it discharges ear wax abnormally. Normal ear wax excreted by the ears is largely odor-free. If you smell stench in your dog’s ear, high are the chances that it has got some infection. If that’s the case, try to clean your dog’s ears gently. Don’t use Qtips or cotton buds in cleaning. Instead, use cotton balls. Dip them in an ear cleaning solution obtained from the vet’s clinic.


business & technology Mosquito Away now serving families who wish to have mosquito free yard Imagine a world without mosquito bites! Mosquito Away was recently founded by three people who wanted to enjoy their summers. Co-founders Eli and Courtney Whitney alongside April Cleek founded Mosquito Away, a safe and natural way to rid your yard from mosquitoes for up to 30 days at a time. The mosquito is not just a pest; it’s an intruder, capable of wreaking havoc on both your outdoors and your health. This species, feeding from any host, acts as a carrier for diseases, potentially ingesting viral strands with every bite. These strands can then be transmitted to you, placing you among those individuals who become ill each year because of contact with mosquitoes.

Marketplace Ministry Tip

By Rob Streetman, inLight Consulting, www.inLightConsulting.com, rob@inlightconsulting.com Here we are, roughly three months into 2014 – time for a check-up. So, how are you doing with the goals God has established for you this year? You do have goals, right? If not, you better get some. For the rest of you, I hope you have not become distracted from your goals by the urgent; or discouraged by your progress. Believe it or not, there are some Marketplace Leaders that have already given up their goals entirely. If any of this describes your situation, let me encourage you: 1. It is not uncommon to become frustrated with goals that have not been established by God. After all, He is the CEO; and He will direct His resources to meet His goals. It may be necessary for you to take a mulligan on this year’s planning, and begin again by asking your CEO what He wants you to accomplish with His enterprise. 2. If you are pursuing His goals, then you may be running into a few challenges – even chaos. This is normal (say that to yourself). God allows challenges and chaos to prepare and refine us for the ultimate challenge – letting our light shine for His glory (Matthew 5:16). 3. We also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance, and perseverance, character; and character, hope; the hope does not disappoint (Romans 5:2-5). But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance (Romans 8:25). Marketplace Ministry Tip: Spend some quality time reviewing (or establishing) your goals with your CEO. His door is always open. Let Him assess the 1st Quarter, and speak into the next. And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart (Galatians 6:9).

real estate Top 10 Moving Tips For Stressed Out Movers Regardless of the reason for the move, the Employee Relocation Council suggests that moving is the third most stressful event in a person’s life, trumped only by death and divorce. And considering the top three reasons for a move are new housing, family reasons, and work, some of these peo-

ple will be making a move while dealing with the emotional strain of a death or divorce. Unless you have personally been there, one can only imagine how difficult it is to plan a funeral, or deal with a divorce, and complete a move at the same time. That’s why Michael Plummer, CEO of Our Town America, the nation’s premier new mover marketing franchise, has released the company’s “10 for 10” – a comprehensive list of top moving tips to help relieve much of the stress for new movers.

Our Town America’s “10 for 10” Moving Tips Play for the “Long Haul” – Every move is a big move, regardless of whether you’re moving cross country or cross county. Give yourself at least 6-8 weeks of time to minimize stress and thoroughly prep for the move. Take Paperwork and Organization Seriously – Let’s face it – few people like tedious paperwork and organizational processes. However, a move can quickly become overwhelming when important papers, documents, and other items are misplaced. Take the time to create a binder for all moving records, get copies of all important medical/school/work documents, and plan how you will move all of your personal items. Don’t Forget Bills and Utilities – It’s easy to forget bills and utilities when you’re simply caught up in pressing tasks related to everyday life, much less when you’re in the middle of moving. Go ahead and schedule disconnections, connections, and/or transfers for all bills and utilities on the front end so they don’t become unnecessary stressors when you get to crunch time. Go All-In on the Packing Supplies – Few aspects of moving are more irritating than returning to the store to pick up that extra roll of tape or box at the store. Don’t go crazy, but stock up on more tape, boxes, padding, wrap, labels, etc. than you think you need. Cut the Clutter and Reap the Reward! – If you don’t use it, sell it! Host a garage sale or sell unwanted items online so you can put some extra funds toward the move. Or, if you prefer, donate the items and give yourself a much needed tax break. No need to cart around items that can help alleviate the financial burden of your move! Just Keep Packing, Just Keep Packing – Who doesn’t love a little “Finding Nemo” inspiration? Use Dory’s attitude as your motivational speech in the weeks leading up to your move. Divvy up duties with your family, tackle the packing one room at a time, and give yourself a few weeks to get everything in boxes. Manage and Track your Inventory – Approach this aspect of moving like a store manager. Include serial numbers for major items in your moving records binder. Also, use this as an opportunity to determine which critical household items require an upgrade. Don’t Forget the Mailman! – It may seem trivial, but filling out a Change of Address form at your local post office (or on the USPS website) is one of the most important tasks prior to a move. This will help protect your identity and ensure no important mail (like paychecks) goes to your old address. Additionally, it will remind you to change your address with all credit card, insurance, and utility companies. Keep your Network in the Loop – Don’t keep your friends, family, and business contacts guessing! Provide your employer, attorney, accountant, etc. with plenty of professional notice so as to protect your career and well-being. Take Care of Your Car so it Takes Care of You – This is the perfect time to take your car in for the tune-up, oil change and realignment you’ve been putting off. This is particularly true if you’re making a big move and will be travelling a long distance.

The Family Connection An Emotional Faith By Kerry Patuka, a degreed and certified educator, licensed minister and founder of Drive 5 Ministries.kerrydrive5@yahoo.com

For Christians, Easter is a very emotional time. Our Messiah is betrayed and arrested by one of our own – the hurt, the betrayal! We worry. Will we be arrested next? We fear. Will we be persecuted for being His followers? He is tortured and dies a cruel death – could anything be more devastating? As we begin to mourn and prepare Him for burial, it’s discovered His body is stolen. We’re angry and upset. In an instant, He is standing before us. The shock; the joy! He’s here! He’s alive! We rejoice! Before we know it, He’s saying good-bye again. He ascends into Heaven leaving us with a mission. There’s a mixture of emotions: sadness, peace and determination. What an emotional roller coaster in such a short time. Now compare what those Christians experienced to our Easter experience today. Will we attend church? Few churches even offer a Good Friday service. How many of us will sit through church and think about Easter dinner, the afternoon egg hunt or having to work the next day? Truthfully, is Easter Sunday much different than any other Sunday? What does this have to do with parenting? Lately, I’ve been thinking about how we express our faith to our kids – emotionally. We’re their role models and we all know that what we do and how we act are much more powerful than what we say.

We use emoticons to help convey emotions that written words simply lack. When we speak, we can use our body language, voice inflections and facial expressions. Emotions are important to get the true intent of our message across. Without them, something is missing. Words, whether written or spoken, are flat when not imbued with emotion. Think for a moment about how sports fans act. When their team scores, they jump, cheer, clap, throw their arms in the air and high five strangers. When their team does poorly, they yell, pout, pound their fists and get angry. They’re emotionally impacted by how their team performs and they freely express those emotions. Imagine a team winning and the fans politely clap and say, “that was nice”. If a team loses, do the fans simply remark “oh well, we tried”? I don’t see that happening. In 2 Samuel 6, “David was dancing before the Lord with all his might, while he and all Israel were bringing up the ark of the Lord with shouts and the sound of trumpets.” When his wife was upset about his behavior, he tells her “I will celebrate before the Lord. I will become even more undignified than this and I will be humiliated in my own eyes.” Maybe we should ask ourselves some questions. Have we lost an emotional connection with our faith and with our Savior? Are we showing our kids an emotional faith? When we discuss our faith with our children, do we punctuate it with “emoticons” or do we simply tell them “facts”? Do we rejoice and lament with our fellow Christians as they experience successes and failures? Are we willing to become “undignified” when we worship God? Do we care too much about what others think about us? Think on these things. Look for opportunities to express our emotions with our faith.

Photo by Lolo Jones After winning the Bronze Medal in 2010, Douglasville resident Elana Meyers upped her game and earned the Silver Medal in the 2014 Olympics in Sochi. We talked with her for about 20 minutes after she got back. For the complete interview, visit our website at www.newsandviewsusa.com/interviews.

First of all, congratulations on winning the silver medal! That’s an unbelievable accomplishment. Thank you, I appreciate that.

It sounds like you’ve been really busy since you’ve gotten back. What have you been up to? Yeah, I’ve been super crazy busy. So, I got back and one of the first things I did was I went to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta and did an event there. BMW, because they build our bobsleds, brought a bobsled down there for the kids. They brought mini-bobsleds down, it was just such a wonderful event. That’s how everything started and it has just gotten busier since then.

When you went to Sochi, did you feel you had a really good chance to win a medal? Yeah. You know, when we were training, I was having really good training down times, and I felt confident that I could nail the track and have the kind of runs that I wanted. Unfortunately I didn’t exactly have the runs that I wanted, but they were still good enough to win the silver medal.

VILLA RICA NEWS & VIEWS

Going into the final heat of the Bobsled in the Olympics, you had a slight lead, but the sled from Canada had gained on you in the 3rd one. Was there more pressure to try to hang on to the lead? I didn’t really feel that much pressure. I was just trying to go out there and execute, and do the things that I know how to do. Kaillie Humphries and I had been going back and forth all season. I finished second to her in our overall World Cup season. I knew it was going to be a battle between the two of us, and I was prepared for it, and I really didn’t feel any pressure. Unfortunately, I just made a mistake.

Yeah, that happens. Was that your best World Cup season so far? Yeah, so far. I was first or second in every race except one. And in the one I wasn’t in, it was literally just a bad 10 meters. It wasn’t a bad full run – it was a bad 10 meters that ended up costing a 12th place finish – for a bad 10 meters, (laughs) 10 meters in the WRONG spot.

you have a curve and then another curve back to back, you kind of know “OK that’s not that bad, I can make up this time”. But when you hit it in a straightaway, you’re just like “Oh No!”

What was it like to get on the bobsled for the first time? I was excited. It was a great thing to be able to try, but scared wasn’t the word. I didn’t know what was going on, I was disoriented. But, I think there is a little bit of fear, any time you bobsled because you know something very bad can happen. The cool thing about bobsledding is I get to face that fear every single day.

That has to be an adrenaline rush. I bet your heart rate goes way up during a run like that too. Oh yeah – and it’s so much fun. I can’t think of anything more fun to do than to drive a bobsled. It is…I can’t even put into words. When you hit a good run, when you’re really firing on all cylinders it feels like you’re just flying, because you are gliding so smoothly. You feel like a superhero.

That’s got to be agonizing if you hit the wall or something, and you think, “Oh man”. That’s just got to be a bad feeling when that happens.

Was the bobsled hard to learn as a new sport, or was it pretty easy?

Yeah. And especially in that part because I hit it in a straightaway, and when you are in a straightaway, and the same thing in Sochi, but when you’re in the straightaway it’s just like “Oh my gosh!” and you know immediately. When

It’s a hard sport for everybody to learn. Even though my brakeman has only been doing it 6 months, that’s more of a testament to the crazy athlete she is than anything else. When you see that you think it’s easy, but she’s one of the fast-

est women ever to run in the world. That’s just how great of an athlete she is. It is extremely hard to get the technique down. And even her, who pushed crazy fast in the Olympics, she’s got so much more potential. You have to learn how to be a bobsledder. And for driving – I’ve only been driving for 4 years now, and in order to really feel like you ‘ve got a hold of your sled, it takes at least 8 years, so I am still relatively young in terms of driving a sled.

So, you’ve got a lot of competitions to go!

pics. We’re not just waiting for the Olympics to happen.

How many hours do you train in a given week? It’s a full-time job, at least four to six hours a day. If we’re not training then we have Sports Psych, or Sports Med, or whatever meetings we have, video analysis, and all that kind of stuff.

You’ve had a ton of support from Douglas County. Was that support helpful to you during the Olympics?

I’m definitely going in 2018. I believe I still have a good bit to grow in the sport. But, you know after that, I eventually want to have children sometime, so whether it happens before or after the next Olympics is the question. I’m getting married in Douglasville in April.

Well, it’s always helpful to know that I have that many people behind me, and supporting me. It really helps me to do my very best. And, it’s been huge for me to be able to have so many people behind me.

Congratulations! Is your fiancé a bobsledder?

I know bobsledding is a very expensive sport. How do you finance the cost of competing?

He was a bobsledder. That’s actually how we met. He bobsledded, and didn’t make the Olympic team, so now he’s back to being a track and field coach. Right now he’s a strength and conditioning coach in Chula Vista California.

Where are the Olympics going to be in 2018? Pyeong Chang South Korea.

I know you are probably trying to take a little break right now. When are you going to start training again? Probably at the end of April. We have our World Cup season of eight races every year, and our World Cup Championship every year. So, we’re racing every year leading up to the Olym-

It gets kind of interesting. So, I work part time jobs. I will go back to working part time jobs. Last year I didn’t because I was focused on the Olympics. I do different fundraisers. Anything I can to try to make money. I also have a couple of sponsors that I was able to pick up – BMW, Deloitte, and Devry University. I have to be creative about my resources because I can’t hold a traditional 9 to 5 with my training schedule. I have to find employers who are willing to work around my schedule. GE hired me last season to do some remote work, to write health and fitness blogs

When you are off competing in the World Cup or in the Olympics, what do you miss most about being away from Douglas County? The food. You know I have so many great spots that I go to eat, whether it’s Fabiano’s, or Yogli Mogli, I love my hometown. I love the fact that I know where to get all the best food.

Looking ahead, does winning the silver medal make you even more determined to win the gold medal next time? Oh definitely. I think when you come that close to winning a gold, a tenth of a second, you’re so close you can taste it, you can’t help but be fired up for that.

You are a huge inspiration to many young girls (and boys) who admire what you have accomplished. What advice would you give to a young athlete that dreams of someday achieving that level of success? Well, I think the number one thing is you have to love whatever you want to do. Find your passion and don’t let anybody tell you that you can’t do it. As long as you are passionate and have fun at whatever you are doing, you are going to be successful. The biggest thing I see also, with young people, is they don’t have the confidence to go out and try something new. You have to just put yourself out there and be willing to try new things, and believe in your abilities, believe in the hard work that you’re willing to put in, and just go for it.

for them. Now, I’m back to being unemployed. So it’s always a creative mix to figure out how to keep funding this dream.

Prayer For the last few weeks I have been doing a study on prayer. It has been amazing. I have been a Christian for over thirty years and the Lord is constantly showing me something new in His Word. We are afforded an intimacy with the Lord that only occurs as a result of Christ paying the price for our sin. By dying on the cross not only did Christ provide for us a way to God, but He also intercedes for us. In Romans 8:34 it says, “Christ Jesus is the one who died—more than that, who was raised— who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us.” I’ve always known the Holy Spirit interceded for us, but the fact that Christ is interceding for us as well was a revelation to me. It gave me a picture of Christ holding one of my hands as I pray and the Holy Spirit holding the other as my prayers are lifted up. Their perfection erasing all of my imperfection as my prayers are taken to the throne of God. Not only did God love us enough to send His perfect son to die on the cross for our sins, but through His son and the Holy Spirit He has given us a way to enter into worship “in spirit and in truth.” Christ afforded us this blessing over two thousand years ago by humbling himself to be born on Earth knowing he was destined to die. While he was on Earth his disciples asked him, “Lord, teach us to pray.” (Luke 11:1) He modeled pray for us, he died on the cross to make prayer possible for us and he sent the Holy Spirit to aid us in prayer. This Easter I will have a thankful heart of prayer for Jesus and all He has done for us! Happy Easter! ~Missy Article sponsored by Discovery Church, an Acts 29 church plant next to Walmart & QuikTrip in Villa Rica. www.thediscoverychurch.org


Reflections

We Will Live Again! By Johnnie Ann Burgess Gaskill “I don’t fear death,” he said. “But I do dread getting out of this old body.” His words express what millions of Christians feel. We believe that death is merely the doorway through which we must pass in order to step from this earthly life into our eternal one. We believe, as the Apostle Paul did, that “when this earthly tent we live in is taken down—when we die and leave these bodies—we will have a home in heaven, an eternal body made for us by God himself and not by human hands” (2 Corinthians 5:1). We also believe that once we are away from these bodies, we will be at home with the Lord (v.6), which is infinitely better. Even so, we dread what may be involved in the transition from this life to the next one. We wonder, Will I have to suffer? Will I be a burden on my family and friends? Will loved ones remain near me during whatever the dying process takes me through? Will my faith remain strong, or will I react like someone who does not believe in God’s love, grace, and mercy? Rather than berate ourselves for dreading what may be involved in the dying process, we should take comfort in knowing that even the saints have feared “getting out of this old body.” No one desires intense, unrelenting suffering. No one wants to experience declining abilities. No one wants to need constant care. No one! Not even the strongest Christians among us! Even Jesus begged to be spared from the agony of dying on a cross. Although He perfectly understood the necessity of His dying in order to save sinful mankind from eternal death and destruction, He still shrank back from personal suffering. Whenever He knew His time to die was imminent, He prayed, “‘Father, if you are willing, please take this cup of suffering away from me. Yet I want

church your will, not mine’” (Luke 22:42). Even though He perfectly understood the reason for His death and the suffering it would require of Him, He shrank from it. Although He knew that death was not the end of His life, He dreaded the process He would have to go through in order to return to His eternal home in Heaven. Once we accept the fact that we will die—someday and in some way— we can comfort ourselves by remembering that death is not our final state! In other words, we will not “stay dead.” The same power that raised Jesus from the dead will also raise us from the dead. We, too, will live again! An awesome new kind of life awaits us, no matter what toll the dying process takes on these mortal bodies. One day “when our perishable earthly bodies have been transformed into heavenly bodies that will never die,” we will shout, “‘O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?’” (See 1 Corinthians 15:54-55).

Fifty has never looked better. But do you look as good on the inside? A colonoscopy is just the close-up you need to stay healthy. The truth is, when detected in its early stages, colon cancer is one of the most highly treatable and preventable cancers. And the risk of getting colon cancer increases with age. Remember – anyone can be diagnosed with the disease - men or women, any ethnicity. Even you. Let our physicians take a closer look. It could save your life. AGA is the only practice in Georgia with FuseTM - Full Spectrum EndoscopyTM. The latest technology in colon cancer screening and detection. Hiram 148 Bill Carruth Parkway Suite 140 678.486.5500
