If you want a Conservative Republican who cares about the issues and how they affect Georgians, vote for Michael Miller for Georgia State House District 66. As a lifelong resident of Douglas County, Michael Miller knows what issues are important to our community: Education: As a member of the Douglas County School Board, Mike knows that a quality education is important to both students and a competitive job market. Mike Miller will work to engage parents, educators, and employers in identifying the educational needs of our students. Together he will work to find real answers that will prepare students for academic excellence. Lower Taxes: As a small business owner himself, Miller will work hard to eliminate unneeded projects and waste to better manage tax dollars and reduce the size of the government. Job Creation: While small businesses provide jobs to over 90% of the American workforce, many are unable to operate successfully because of the taxes and regulations imposed upon them by the state and federal governments. Miller will be an advocate for small business owners to increase jobs and maintain job security for the citizens of District 66. The Second Amendment: Americans are guaranteed the right to defend and protect themselves and their families. Mike Miller believes in the rights of individuals to Keep and Bear Arms. He will fight against any measure that infringes upon the Second Amendment. Mike Miller currently serves on the Douglas County School Board where he has been a stalwart for fiscal responsibility and transparency. Mike is also a small business owner, serving as managing partner of the law firm of Miller and Hightower, P.C. in Douglasville. Mike is a graduate of the University of West Georgia with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Economics and received his Juris Doctorate from the Cumberland School of Law at Samford University. Mike is a lifelong resident of Douglasville and graduated from Alexander High School. Mike has years of dedicated service to his community in both the private and public sectors. His steady, conservative and principled leadership on the Douglas County School Board is what we have long needed from our representative at the state Capitol. Please vote for Mike Miller for State House District 66 in the July 31st Republican Primary. P A I D F O R BY T H E C O M M I T T E E T O E LE CT M I K E M I LLE R S T A T E H O U S E

The Conservative to ELIMINATE the Georgia Income Tax

CONSERVATIVE SOLUTIONS TO CREATE JOBS As our new State Representative, Bob Snelling will support eliminating Georgia’s income taxes and replacing them with a Georgia “Fair Tax,” similar to the Fair Tax Plan sponsored by Congressman John Linder. “My proposal would exempt any senior citizens who are residents of Georgia from paying any additional consumption tax; they’ve already paid their dues. “Eliminating our income taxes will bring major employers from across the county to relocate in Georgia–creating thousands of new jobs. Visitors, tourists, and illegal immigrants who currently pay nothing for state services would begin paying their share.” ~ Bob Snelling

• Create New Jobs • Illegal Immigrants and Tourists Would Finally Help Pay • Net Tax Relief for Georgians

Mill Town Music Hall great place to see a concert By Tim Collins, Publisher, Chapel Hill News & Views In May, Steven Curtis Chapman launched his summer tour right here in West Georgia at the new Mill Town Music Hall. Since he is one of my favorite artists I bought tickets and went to the show. For those of you who have not been to this venue yet, you should definitely plan on going. I loved the fact that it was only about 20 minutes from the time I left my home in western Douglas County until the time that I arrived, and there was no traffic to battle, since it is in Bremen, just off Exit 11. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The sound was great. Because it is not a huge concert hall, every seat is a good one. But the thing that stood out most to me was how far apart the rows are from each other. I could literally stretch my legs straight out in front of me and barely touch the row ahead of me. When someone had to get by me, I didn’t even have to stand up, and they could walk by me without turning sideways. When the concert was over, I was out of the door, in my car, and on I-20 in about five minutes, and we didn’t leave early. There are a number of good concerts coming up, including the Oak Ridge Boys in August. You can find the schedule and buy tickets at www.milltownmusichall.com.

Video Game Review Hello Gaming Community! This month I am reviewing Virtual Fighter 5 Showdown for the Playstation Network. This is a downloadable game that’s available on PSN and also Xbox Live Arcade (I got it for PSN). This game costs $14.99 and is worth every penny. The graphics are a bit dated but the game play is phenomenal. Virtual Fighter is a more realistic game,

The game does offer an Online Mode and when I played I did not experience any lag, but if you haven’t played this game before you may want to practice for a while before you head online as timing is very important. All in all for the price this game offers you a robust amount of characters and the learning curve isn’t too hard. This game gets a 3 out of 5.

Photography Tip of the Month Outdoor Portraits that Shine. One of the great hidden features on digital cameras is the fill flash or flash on mode. By taking control of the flash so it goes on when you want it to, not when the camera deems it appropriate, you’ve just taken an important step toward capturing great outdoor portraits. In flash on mode, the camera exposes for the background first, then adds just enough flash to illuminate your portrait subject. The result is a professional looking picture.

Spring and Summer to keep shoes from wearing out, sleeping with windows opened and doors unlocked…. A gentle smile spread slowly across the thin woman’s face and stayed there, as she said, “It was a good life.” The heavy-set woman chuckled. “Yes. But I didn’t know it at the time!” As soon as she said that, I remembered reading these words of another woman: “What a wonderful life I’ve had! I only wish I’d realized it sooner.” How true! Why, each of us would be so happy if only we’d savor the current moments of our lives. Someday, like the two elderly ladies, each of us will look back on this time in our life—with its challenges and stresses—and long for it again. But, we won’t get to re-live it.

11 Car-Care Tips That Save Gas By Lucy Lazarony, bankrate.com

waste of money. That pricey premium fuel won’t boost your car’s fuel economy or performance in the least, so skip it. If you’re not sure what grade of fuel works best for your car, open up your owner’s manual and take a look. As long as your engine doesn’t knock or ping when you fuel up with regular unleaded, you’re good to drive on this much cheaper gas. Passing on pricey premium gasoline could save you hundreds of dollars a year. Don’t top off. Don’t bother topping off when filling your car’s gas tank. Any additional gas is just going to slop around or seep out. Why waste your money paying for gas your car won’t use? Stop pumping at the first indication that your tank is full when the automatic nozzle clicks off. Tighten up that gas cap. Gas will evaporate from your car’s gas tank if it has an escape. Loose, missing or damaged gas caps cause 147 million gallons of gas to evaporate each year, according to the Car Care Council. So be sure to tighten up that gas cap each time you fuel up your car. Go for the shade. The hot summer sun that makes the inside of your

Use your garage for your car. Got a garage? Clear it out and make room for your car. Parking in your garage will help your car stay warm in winter and cool in summer, and you won’t have to depend as much on your gas-guzzling air-conditioning or defroster when you drive. Check your tire pressure once a month. Buy a digital gauge and keep it in your glove box. Compare the pressure in your tires with the recommended pressure listed in your owner’s manual and on the placard in your car door. Then inflate your tires as needed. Be sure to check tire pressure when your tires are cold. A good time is early in the morning after your car’s been idle overnight. Keep your engine in tune. Fixing a car that is out of tune or has failed an emissions test can boost gas mileage by about 4 percent. So be sure to give your car regular tune-ups. You’ll also want to watch out for worn spark plugs. A misfiring spark plug can reduce a car’s fuel efficiency by as much as 30 percent. Replace air filters. Keep a close eye on your engine’s air filter. When the engine air filter clogs with dirt, dust and bugs, it causes your engine

The Family Connection Memory Keeping

By Kerry Patuka, a degreed and certified educator, licensed minister and founder of Drive 5 Ministries, a consulting, speaking and training ministry for churches and children’s ministry. kerrydrive5@yahoo.com

Moms-to-be and new moms are surrounded with ideas and reminders on how to preserve and cherish their child’s first years. Baby books, photos taken at the hospital, preservation box-

es for a dedication / christening / baptism outfit, envelopes for the first hair cut, containers for the first lost tooth and more. Often as the child ages or as the family adds new members, the tradition of keeping memories fades into the background. It’s completely understandable, as our families expand and as our children get older, we all get busier. To many people, memory keeping may not seem very important, but I value it. I often think of Luke 2:19. Mary and Joseph are in the stable and baby Jesus has been born. The shepherds have just finished recounting the story of the angels in the field and “all who heard the shepherds’ story were astonished, but Mary kept all these things in her heart and thought about them often.” Mary couldn’t take a photo, write a blog or make a scrapbook, but she held those memories close in her thoughts. Sometimes I wonder what Mary would do today.

Most people probably think about scrapbooking when they think of memory keeping. I love to scrapbook, but there are lots of other ways to preserve memories: 1. Write a letter to your child each year on his birthday, at the end of the school year or at Christmas. Write about the year and share your love and dreams for him. Keep these in a safe place until he is older. 2. Collect things from your travels. Items such as pins, pencils or patches can almost always be found to commemorate just about any place you visit. Start a collection of these and gather them in a display or box. 3. Keep their t-shirts from sports, camps, scouts, church, vacations, etc and turn them into a t-shirt blanket. There are quite a few companies that do this now or you can figure out online how to make one yourself. 4. Create a school album or box for each year with art, report cards, samples of work, certificates and more. If you make an album, take pictures of items too big or bulky and use the photo instead. 5. Create a place to display artwork. Frame pieces that are really special to you or your child or select one piece to frame each year. 6. Label and organize videos you take. Whether you film randomly or you interview your child each year, keep track of what is on each one. 7. Keep a special box or basket to collect cards your family receives. 8. Blog or journal about your life. Write about the ordinary and the special days. Record both the ups and downs. 9. Store special outfits, toys, room décor or other items that you think might be appreciated when she is an adult or a parent. My mom kept a small throw rug from my nursery that I used it in my son’s nursery and now I have it for him someday. I have several special toys and outfits from my childhood and I share these memories with my son. I love looking through our scrapbooks, either alone or with my family. It’s fun to page through my son’s patch book with him and reminisce about where we got each one and what happened on that trip or that day. I smile when he brings me an item he has outgrown and asks me if I’ll keep it for when he has kids. Hopefully, he’ll remain a memory keeper his whole life. Memory keeping is for ourselves, our families and future generations. It allows us to re-live the special moments, to remind our families of how much we love them and it preserves our family history to those who come after us.

Nail Care Pointers

By Jeanne Grace Curtis, Nails Your Way, 770.949.3113, nailsyourway.com

Sandal Season is Here

Now that sandal season is here it is important to beautify your feet with a relaxing pedicure. Pedicures treat both the toenails and the skin on the feet. If you suffer from corns, calluses, ingrown toenails, fungus, athlete’s foot, or diseases such as diabetes or arthritis then regular pedicures can help to keep your feet healthy. The results of an online women’s shoe survey by the American

Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons show there are a lot of feet out there in dire need of attention and pampering. Forty-three million Americans say their feet hurt and that they have some kind of problem with their feet. Just like your face, your nose, your hair, or your fingers; your feet are different from everyone else’s. Wearing the wrong size, style and shape of shoes can cause numerous foot problems but ingrown toenails are the most common. Living with the pain of ingrown toenails can lead to serious problems if not taken care of correctly. Ingrown nails are nails whose corners dig painfully into the soft tissue of the nail grooves, often leading to irritation, redness, and swelling. Usually, toenails grow straight out, but sometimes, one or both corners curve and grow into the flesh. The big toe is usually the victim of this condition, but other toes can also become ingrown. The shape of the nail is usually inherited, but it is commonly influenced by trauma and/or shoe pressure. Tight footwear will increase pressure between the skin in the nail fold and nail, increasing the risk of ingrown nails. The skin on the feet is particularly vulnerable to dryness. As we age, oil-producing glands slow down production, causing skin to become thin and dry. Not only does dry skin make the feet look older, it also increases the chances of developing a foot infection. It is important to keep the feet moisturized with a thick rich lotion daily. A knowledgeable licensed pedicurist will use scrubs and foot files to gently exfoliate the dry skin on the heels and bottom of the feet as well as alpha-hydroxy cuticle remover rather than cutting or nipping delicate skin. The improper practice of nipping or cutting the cuticles will make them grow back quicker and thicker. Do not allow your pedicurist to nip or cut your cuticles or calluses. Georgia has outlawed the dangerous credo-cutting implement. Do not allow a nail tech to cut your delicate foot tissue with a credo-cutting implement, it can cause bleeding and/or infection. Foot and leg massage is an important part of any pedicure experience because it improves blood circulation. Optimal blood circulation helps to prevent skin and nail problems in the feet. Monthly pedicures can dramatically soften and heal callusprone feet and will help prevent fungal infections. Be sure to choose a salon that follows state guidelines for safe footbath cleansing and disinfecting procedures. A little time and attention through monthly pedicures will not only keep your feet looking and feeling good but will also provide health benefits such as skin renewal, reduced stress and improved circulation. So go pedicure shopping today and enjoy sandal season.

The Brain Injury and Brain Illness Support Group meets the first and third Friday of the month at Douglasville First United Methodist Church, located at 6167 Prestley Mill Road at 6:30pm. The focus of the group is successfully living with a brain condition. Caregivers are encouraged to attend. Information, resources and support will be available. Rocky Rothrock, 770.355.6135

At the top, there are two different families of fat—saturated fat and unsaturated fat. Saturated fat (butter is one example) is solid at room temperature. Unsaturated fat (like olive oil) is liquid at room temperature. The family of unsaturated fat includes branches: monounsaturated fat and polyunsaturated fat. In the polyunsaturated fat family, you’ll find omega-6 fatty acids and omega-3 fatty acids, and it is the omega-3 family that has been making headlines in the nutrition world.

Mega Health Benefits Extensive research indicates that omega-3 fats reduce inflammation, helping to prevent inflammatory diseases like heart disease and arthritis. In addition to warding off inflammation, omega-3’s are also essential to the brain, impacting behavior and cognitive function, and are especially necessary during fetal development. According to the University of Maryland Medical Center (UMM), omega-3’s may also: • Improve artery health by helping to reduce plaque buildup and blood clots in arteries that lead to the brain. • Improve cholesterol by lowering triglycerides and elevating HDL (good cholesterol) levels. These benefits come primarily from DHA and EPA. Learn more about fats that fight cholesterol. • Improve joint health by reducing joint tenderness and stiffness associated with arthritis and osteoarthritis. • Improve bone health by positively impacting the body’s calcium levels, reducing the incidence of bone loss. • Improve mental health by helping to insulate nerve cells in the brain, allowing these nerve cells to better communicate with one another. People who are deficient in omega-3’s may suffer from depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, eating disorders, and ADHD. • Improve skin health by helping to alleviate symptoms related to skin disorders like acne and psoriasis. • Improve bowel health by reducing inflammation of the bowels, helping alleviate symptoms of Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. • Improve lung health by reducing inflammation in diseases like asthma. • Improve menstrual health by reducing the pain associated with PMS and menstruation.

Your Health What’s Healing You?

By Dr. Awais Butt, Planet Chiropractic, 2971 Fairburn Road, 770.783.1799, myplanetchiro.com, mychiro@myplanetchiro.com Every system in the body plays a role in keeping us healthy and alive. We’ve got a system to pump our blood, a system to move us about, and a system to take in and digest food. We have a system for every bodily need, including the master control system (your central nerve system: the brain and spinal cord) which assimilates all the

info and issues commands for all the other systems to follow. The cool thing about all these systems (even master control) is that you can take an anatomy book and point with your finger to the main components which make up each system. Our IMMUNE system is different, however. Our immune system is what keeps us healthy and adapting to various life circumstances. But it isn’t found all in one place. There are many different organs and tissues that play a part in regulating our ‘immunity’ and maintaining our ability to stay healthy. The spleen, the liver, the lymph nodes, the white blood cells, and the skin are just a few of the different good guys we have working for us. The better these parts all work together, the higher potential we have to stay healthy. “The nerve fibers go to all the body parts, including every organ of the immune system. We found that if we took the nerves away from either the spleen or the lymph nodes, it virtually stopped immune response in its tracks,” said David Foelten, M.D., PhD, Researcher University of Rochester School of Medicine Ronald Pero, PhD., NYU Medical Research Department says, “The amazing thing was that at the end of the study we found that people who had been under chiropractic care for at least five years were found to have immune systems that were 200% stronger than people who had not been under chiropractic care and immune systems that were 400% stronger than those in cancer patients.” So next time you’re fighting off food poisoning or the common cold, thank your IMMUNE system for doing what it needs to do to keep you alive and healthy.

Bliss Hair Salon & Day Spa celebrates 5 years Bliss Hair Salon & Day Spa has reached a milestone in business. On July 3, 2007 an optimistic staff of six opened the doors to their newly built salon and spa at 4040 Chapel Hill Road. In the last five years, Bliss has immersed itself into the Chapel Hill community.

Douglasville residents, John

and Leanne Lee knew they wanted to open a business near their home, and when they saw a new shopping center break ground on Chapel Hill Road less than a mile from their neighborhood, they knew that would be the home of their start-up salon and spa. The Lee’s consider their first couple of years in business to be a bit rocky. The economic downturn that began in 2008 slowed business growth, the flood in September 2009 made things even worse by damaging every major road leading to their facility, and their shopping center got off to a wobbly start by losing 10 new businesses in two years, but in 2010 the business hit its stride and hasn’t looked back. Today Bliss is enjoying a thriving clientele, and employs a staff of 17. The owners attribute their open doors to determination, a loyal and caring staff, and a genuine desire to serve others. With these characteristics, it looks like a bright future for Bliss.

Taking the sting out of insect allergies By Grace Chiang, M.D., WellStar Medical Group, Allergy and Asthma. Dr. Chiang is board certified in allergy/immunology and pediatrics. 770.333.2027, www.wellstar.org/allergy During summer, you may notice an increase in the number of insects buzzing around outside. People with an allergy to stinging insects will want to take extra precautions this time of year. “For most people, getting stung results in temporary pain, redness and swelling at the site of the sting,” said Dr. Grace Chiang, an allergy and asthma specialist with WellStar Medical Group Allergy and Asthma. “However, for those with allergies to insect stings, it can result in a sudden, severe reaction called anaphylaxis. This may be fatal if not treated immediately.” Symptoms of anaphylaxis to watch for include: itching and hives over large areas of the body, separate or away from the site of the sting; swelling in the throat or tongue; difficulty breathing; dizziness; stomach cramps; nausea and diarrhea. If you suffer from a stinging insect allergy, you should take extra precautions to avoid being stung.

Because a severe and sometimes fatal reaction can occur, it is important to know what common stinging insects look like. The most common stinging insects in the United States include: • Yellow jackets – black with yellow markings, found in various climates • Honeybees – a round, fuzzy body covered with dark brown and yellow markings • Paper wasps – slender, elongated bodies that are black, brown or red and have yellow markings • Hornets – black or brown with white, orange or yellow markings and are larger than yellow jackets • Fire ants – reddish-brown ants living in large mounds It is also critical for anyone with allergies to insect stings to take precautions to avoid a potentially dangerous reaction. Dr. Chiang recommends the following tips to avoid being stung: • Avoid the “territory” of the stinging insect’s nest. These insects are most likely to sting if their homes are disturbed. • Remain calm, quiet and slowly move away from stinging insects. • Avoid brightly colored clothing and perfume outdoors that may attract

Unfortunately, most people are not aware they are allergic to insect stings until after experiencing a reaction. An allergic reaction occurs when the immune system overreacts to the insect venom. When this happens, an allergic person’s body produces an allergic substance called Immunoglobulin E (IgE) antibody, which reacts with the venom. This triggers the release of histamine

Making Vacation Fun Summer has arrived and with it comes thoughts of “fun in the sun”; however, nothing spoils that fun as quickly as arriving at the picnic, or vacation spot and realizing you forgot something really important (like certain medicines, for example). Proper planning can make all the difference. Here are a few tips to get you started: • Create a checklist and timeline to keep you on track and organized. Create using a computer, smart phone or small tablet. • Decide on the things you “must” take like meds, makeup, special hair supplies, and anything needed to entertain the kids. • If you travel often, buy duplicates of things like deodorant, razors, hairspray and toothpaste and leave them packed in your overnight bag. • Don’t forget to throw in a dirty clothes “bag”. You can buy a mesh bag or use an old pillowcase tied with a shoe string. • Don’t pack too much stuff. We all do this; however, the rising cost of extra luggage is causing us to re-think the way we pack. If you find yourself saying “I might need this”, that is a clue that you probably won’t - so leave it at home. • Coordinate your clothing so you can eliminate the need for extra accessories. One way to do this is to choose a couple of colors, like black and white or chocolate brown and pink, and mix and match the way you wear them. • Don’t forget to take a pair of comfortable walking shoes. Nothing can ruin a good vacation like aching feet. • Avoid wrinkles by placing tissue paper between each item. I haven’t found any way to completely avoid wrinkles; however, this seems to work fairly well. Packing clothes tightly so they don’t have a lot of room to move around also helps. You might also want to include a wrinkle-releasing spray. • Use space-saving bags (the kind you vacuum the air out of). I have to admit I “stole” this idea from a fellow organizer. I use these bags a lot when working with clients, but had never though about how helpful they would be when packing for vacation. After all, why pay for extra luggage when you can “shrink it” and make it all fit in one? For those picnics and short trips close to home use a wicker basket or other type storage container and keep supplies like bug spray, extra towels, and sunscreen in one location making it easier to create memories on the “spur of the moment”. No matter where your travels take you… close to home or far away, have a wonderful summer!

Landscaping By Kate Wright, who owns Bloom’n Gardens Landscape. She is a degreed Botanist, Certified Arborist, and Certified Pesticide Applicator, & Georgia Certified Landscape Professional, www. bloomngardens.com • 404.314.1474 The other day I was working in my vegetable garden and I wondered how many of you planted a vegetable garden this year. With the economy still under the weather, I bet there are a lot more of you than ever. Typically, in times of distress, food prices go up and more of us try our hand at the old fashion “Victory Gardens” to help stretch our dollars. If you planted your garden in the later part of April you probably are already reaping its rewards in the form of zucchini, cucumbers, and tomatoes. Soon I bet you will be enjoying a bounty of peppers, but in our climate there is more to enjoy from our veggie patch. By living here in the south, we are fortunate to be able to grow vegetable for almost the entire year. If you have not already gotten exhausted by all the work involved in keeping a vegetable patch, you might like to know that August is the time to get many of your cooler season veggies in the ground. Cool season vegetables thrive in cooler temperatures and shorter days. I know it’s hard to believe but those cooler days are just around the corner. Probably the most common fall vegetables are in the leafy category. Lettuce, spinach, mustard, Swiss chard, kale and collards probably cover the bulk of the leafy type you will want to plant. If you provide row covers you can extend the growing season well into the fall. Other vegetables worth planting for fall include broccoli, brussel sprouts, turnips, cauliflower, and cabbage. These are known as cole crops. If you have the space, start them from seed in the garden or wait until an area is free and use transplants. Another vegetable to plant, if you like them, is spring radishes. Don’t worry about the spring tag, they will do just fine in the fall garden. They do not need much time to grow, so don’t worry about doing transplants, seeding is fine. One of my favorites is English peas, they will produce quite well in cooler temperatures. If you love to cook with garlic, now is the best time to get a bed of garlic going in your garden. It won’t be ready to harvest until next year, but you will be thankful that you planted as it was $.79 per bulb the other day at Kroger. Onions are also planted in the fall for harvest in the spring. Making sure you have room for these two plants will drastically reduce your overall grocery bill in the future. With all the variety available, a fall vegetable garden should be on the radar for everyone. Even if you do not have an official garden space, plant amongst your perennials or in your flower beds. In fact, one other noteworthy fall veggie is the pansy. The flowers make wonderful additions to a salad.

Decorating Tips Art of Picture Hanging By Karen Hartley, Karen Hartley Interiors, 770.459.9096, www.karenhartleyinteriors.com If the Atlanta Symphony’s 2012 Decorator Showhouse illustrates trends, the concept of hanging art in groupings and “collages” is becoming part of today’s trend. This home was full of walls of fine art! Every room had interesting artwork and much was hung in groupings. The stairwells were full of unusual displays. Rarely was one piece hanging

alone! By the way, I thought this Showhouse was one of the best in years! It was beautifully decorated and felt very livable. Even if your pocketbook won’t allow for fine art, you can use this technique to expand artistic interest in your own home. The type of artwork you choose will depend on your personal preferences and your budget. You could use small prints, needlework, architectural pieces, metal, and/or original artwork. Of course, the more valuable the piece, the more important its place should be. The style and colors in the artwork will have the best effect if they are combined with furnishings that compliment and coordinate with the chosen pieces. Hanging collections can be challenging! First you need to plan it out. As with so many things, scale plays a big part. A large, dramatic picture often looks best when displayed independently. It serves as a focal point in a room because the eye is drawn directly to it. Smaller pictures become more effective when grouped together rather than being scattered around the room. Whether you are hanging a single piece or a grouping, the pieces should occupy approximately 75% of the wall space. This rule of thumb will help you judge whether a piece is the right size for a given space. If it isn’t, then consider adding something else with it. For example, add candle scones on each side or add other art pieces with it. Always remember to hang your pictures at the height they will best be viewed. Typically, we hang are so that the center of the picture is at eye level. Allow 4” to 8”of space between a furniture piece and the bottom of the frame. If you are hanging art over a table or flat surface, you may want to consider the items or accessories on the table and hang the art above those. Also, a lamp on the table will typically sit to one side of the art and not block the picture. You may want to plan the lamp as part of the overall composition. Wall collections are not limited to artwork. You can combine florals, small shelves or brackets with something interesting to rest on it, architectural items, and more! Use your own imagination. If you are hanging a group of pictures, the easiest way to get the placement correct is to use a large sheet of paper to plan the layout. I like to use that brown package paper. Cut the paper the size of the space. If the space is taller than the paper is wide, tape sheets together. Lay the paper on the floor and place the pictures on the paper. Decide the best arrangement. Remember to achieve balance in the composition. Establish a line either at the top or in the center and use it as a guide on placing your pictures. Once you have an arrangement you like, trace around each frame on piece on the paper with a pencil. You can then turn the artwork over and mark where the hooks will need to go. If you have a number of pieces, you may want to number them on the back and on the paper so you will get each piece in the right place. Now, tape the paper on the wall, making sure to get it straight, and make a final evaluation of your placement. If everything looks good, then place the hooks in the wall where you marked them on the paper. Carefully remove the paper, leaving the hooks in place on the wall, and hang you pictures.

and through telephone calls. I have received written information via emails, cards and letters, and text messages. To all of you who have taken time to make me aware of your situations and your views, thank you. Also during my first half-year on the job, I have employed several means of communicating with you. I have found this monthly column in the Chapel Hill News and Views to be a very effective way to provide information on a key subject. I have been available to reporters and editors locally, as well as from Atlanta. I have responded positively to as many speaking engagements as possible. Certainly, I appreciate having these various means of communication open to me. In this column, I want to talk about what I consider to be one effective way to reach many citizens and businesses in the Douglasville - Douglas County area. It is CITI TV, which is the City of Douglasville’s government access channel. Through a variety of programs, CITI TV seeks to provide information on key things happening in this local government and in the community. If you haven’t watched CITI TV lately, I hope you will do so. If you are a viewer of CITI TV on Comcast digital channel 22 or on the City’s web site (www.ci.douglasville.ga.us), I hope you will let me know what we can do to improve our programming. We sincerely want CITI TV to be a place where you can go to obtain information pertaining to your community. PROGRAMMING ON CITI TV. You can watch CITI TV at any time on Comcast digital channel 22. (However, if you don’t have a digital television set: For channels 2-29, I’m told you can obtain an adapter from Comcast and pay $1.99 per month. Or you can purchase a digital TV converter box from an electronics store.) Of course, you can watch CITI TV by going to the City’s web site, at the address noted above or at mycititv.com -- In addition to the current programming, the web site includes a list of all past CITI TV programs so you can watch the program of your choice any time. The City Council’s regular meetings, special meetings, and legislative work sessions are taped and start running on CITI TV a couple of days later. They usually run for two weeks, basically until they are replaced by the next group of meetings of the City Council. I host a monthly program, and would appreciate feedback on how to make this program better. Also, let me know what topics you would like for me and my guests to address.

Plaza and at the Downtown Conference Center, the Chamber of Commerce monthly luncheons, Black History Month, high school football games, and youth athletic events in City parks. I am very pleased with the high quality of CITI TV’s programs, and the staff certainly works hard to produce a great product. Frankly, I was surprised to find out that for each half-hour program you see on CITI TV, the average production time is 16 hours, the average post time is 8 hours, and the average prep time is another 8 hours. THE PROGRAMMING SCHEDULE. For a programming schedule, please refer to the web site mycititv.com A BRIEF HISTORY OF CITI TV. After working with Comcast for several years -- and with the assistance of the Georgia Municipal Association -- the City of Douglasville reached an agreement with Comcast for air time. Kellie Hunter was hired to head-up CITI TV; and working with Jeff Noles, she identified the equipment needed to launch CITI TV in a temporary location in City Hall. I’m told that a couple of times each week, the City Council chambers were turned into a studio. And with the aid of a computer-generated background, it appeared CITI TV had several well-equipped studios. CITI TV went on the air in August 2007 with a three-hour time block on Comcast. Seven months later, CITI TV moved to its current location in the building immediately west of the Downtown Conference Center. Though small, the CITI TV staff was delighted to have its own studio. Then, on February 11, 2009, CITI TV moved to Comcast digital channel 22 and started the 24-7 schedule. By this time, Ms. Hunter had three assistants; and I know that these guys -- Jason Post, Steve Jones, and Nathan Todd – and Kellie Hunter do awesome work. They have received praise from many organizations and people in this community, and I believe they do an excellent job of communicating what’s happening in the City of Douglasville. (In addition, CITI TV currently has a part- time contract worker and an intern.) In August 2011 CITI TV assumed responsibility for the City’s web site, which is under the direction of media coordinator Nathan Todd. I invite you to check out this web site: mycititv.com CLOSING COMMENTS. I recognize we live in an age when the old methods of “getting the word out” and “keeping your ear to the ground”

In fact, back in 1997, he toured 40 different countries over 11 months, spending only $3,700 the entire trip. He slept on the streets, in airports, and at times, in a guest house. And that’s why he thinks he’s been so fortunate. For him, it wasn’t about seeing the world – it was about meeting the people along the journey. “I know how to speak four languages, but I found the one universal language is human kindness,” said Biernacki, author of No More Heroes (www.globalhenry.com), a novel loosely based on the true stories

Biernacki’s open and earnest attitude is not only reflected in his traveling style. It also earned him a spot as a Virgin America airlines spokesperson featured in print ads and billboards around the country. While he makes a living as a pilot, which affords him the ability to fly around the world, Biernacki feels that his real occupation is that of traveler. “The people I met – these weren’t dignitaries or celebrities. They were real people, just like you and me,” he added. “They worked for a living, raised their families and just wanted to live by a certain code of human kindness. I never felt like a guest, and they never treated me like a foreigner. So, no matter where I went, I always felt like I was home.”

Life insurance may be needed at all stages of life. Whether married or single, male or female, with children or without, you may have financial obligations that need to be met. Life insurance provides financial security for you and your loved ones. Assumption #3: My family and I are covered by the group insurance at work.

Notices may request payment, notify you of account changes, or request additional information. A notice normally covers a very specific issue about your account or tax return. 2. Each letter and notice offers specific instructions on what action you need to take. 3. If you receive a correction notice, you should review the correspondence and compare it with the information on your return. 4. If you agree with the correction to your account, then usually no reply is necessary unless a payment is due or the notice directs otherwise.

Identity theft is a growing problem, the officials warned. The IRS is confronted with the same issues of identity theft as every major financial institution and is working on preventing and detecting all identity theft. The IRS have opened an Identity Protection Special Unit (IPSU). Victim assistors handle taxpayer inquiries from multiple sources, including a dedicated identity theft telephone line. The IRS is also issuing special identification numbers (Identity Protection Personal Identification Numbers or IP PINs) to taxpayers whose identities are known to have been stolen, to facilitate the filing of their returns and prevent criminals from stealing their identities. The IRS assigned more than 250,000 IP PINs for the 2012 filing season.

Canongate Corner Practice Like You Play By Charlie Moller, Regional Manager with Canongate Golf Clubs. He has been in the Atlanta golf industry for 26 years. cmoller@canongategolf.com How many times have you gone to the driving range and hit practice balls endlessly without a specific plan? Or just stand on the practice tee and hit several drivers in a row? How much time do you spend practicing your chipping and putting? If you really want to lower your scores and become a better player you need to improve your practice habits. Most golf courses have a total of 14 holes that are either par 4s or par 5s. That means that most golfers will hit the driver a maximum of 14 times in a round. How many times in a round of golf do you hit driver twice in a row? Obviously if the drive is hit out of bounds or may be lost the golfer may hit a provisional ball but these are the only times. Practice hitting a driver or a specific target with a specific ball flight in mind. Then hit your next shop with an iron that would match your typical second shot. Hit a short pitch shot and then repeat the drill. This is more typical of what we do in a round of golf. Standing in one spot and hitting the same club can allow you to get into a groove with that club but this is not what we do in a typical round of golf.

The other mistake that many amateurs make in their practice sessions is to spend too much time on the range and not enough on or around the practice green. A golfer that averages a score of 85 hits about 5 greens per round in regulation and has about 33 total putts. That would mean that there are over 50 shots per round that are hit with shorter clubs. Assuming that about 25 of these are approach shots that would mean that this player hits about 25 shots per round that are less than full shots. Practicing these half shots and putting and improving your short game will lower your scores faster than any other method. They don’t require tremendous swing speed or physical ability. It just takes a little work and it can also be a lot more enjoyable than pounding golf balls on the range. Change your practice routine the next few times you go to the range and see how it helps your scores. If you want further assistance, contact your PGA Golf Professional!

Does Your Husband Want To Do Something “Crazy”? His feats are impressive, legendary. At age 57, Marshall Ulrich went 3,063 miles on foot, running about 60 miles a day for 52 days straight, from San Francisco to New York City. He was attempting to break a world record set by a man half his age and ultimately set two new records, completing the third fastest trans-American crossing in history. You can imagine that being married to a guy so driven and prone to extremes requires a strength of its own, a special brand of emotional endurance. Ulrich’s wife not only puts up with this craziness but

embraces it as an essential part of him. How? Why? Ulrich wrote about all of this in Running on Empty: An Ultramarathoner’s Story of Love, Loss, and a Record-Setting Run Across America, now available in paperback (Avery, $16). A central element in the book is a recounting of how Ulrich met his wife, Heather, late in life and how she taught him to love again after great personal tragedy and

previous marriage. He credits her not only with helping him to become a better man, but also with being crucial to his completing this epic, record-setting transcontinental run. Here are some “how to” tips for women in a relationship with a “crazy” man: - Let men be men. All of us need to express ourselves in unique ways, and for one man, it may be running across the U.S., while for another, it may be a guys’ getaway in Baja, Mexico, and for another, it may be watching a show about Bigfoot. - Respect that thing you think is silly or risky or even dangerous, as it can bring out the best in both of you. It isn’t anti-feminist to embrace the dreams and aspirations of men who want to test their mettle, whether that’s in sport, business, finance, or any of the other classically male area of contest. This also applies to men who want to explore the arts and other creative pursuits. The truth is that most men like to succeed, no matter their particular interest. Support them in it. - Agree that this is a reciprocal arrangement, where both partners are committed to seeing the other become the fullest versions of themselves. If you can find it in your heart to encourage him in something you’d otherwise ignore or even dismiss, he can do the same for you. Who knows what you might accomplish together?

Identifying Dyslexia in Young Students

By Rebecca S. Blakeman, Ph.D., Licensed Psychologist - Adolescent Child Specialty Services, 3138 Golf Ridge Blvd., Douglasville, 404.310.1161, rblakemanphd@yahoo.com Despite decades of research there are still many prevalent misconceptions about dyslexia. Dyslexia is a learning disability that is characterized by difficulties related to recognizing words, reading fluently, sounding out words, and spelling. The cause of dyslexia is neurologically based (i.e., in the brain) and is not due to poor parenting or not reading enough to your child when he/she is young. Contrary to popular belief, dyslexia is not rare, nor does it involve seeing things backwards. Individuals with dyslexia “see” things just as clearly as other individuals, though they cannot connect the letters they see with the sounds made by those letters. There is a subset of individuals with reading difficulties who have problems related to visual tracking, which causes letters to blur, wiggle, or otherwise move on the page; this is related to visual processing rather than the typical auditory processing weaknesses in dyslexia. Although individuals with dyslexia will not “outgrow” their reading difficulties, they can learn to read with appropriate, research supported reading instruction. Early identification is extremely important for several reasons: (1) the young brain appears more easily “changeable” and able to benefit from intervention, (2) there is less of a “gap” between the child and his/her classmates in terms of reading ability, such that the child is not significantly behind yet, and (3) emotional distress and frustration related to academic difficulties can be avoided before self-esteem is damaged. Below are some early potential signs of dyslexia: • Family history of dyslexia • Unable to recognize letters in own name by age four • Does not seem to “get” or enjoy rhymes • Cannot identify rhyming words in Kindergarten • Cannot identify words that start with the same sound in Kindergarten • Cannot identify all upper and lower case letters in Kindergarten • Unable to learn sight words in Kindergarten • Cannot sound out simple words (e.g., cat) by end of Kindergarten • Does not enjoy reading • Reads more slowly than same age peers • Unable to understand what is read • Poor spelling Although I have heard it argued that identifying a reading problem as ‘dyslexia’ is not important, research argues to the contrary. Not all reading disorders are dyslexia; in fact, some reading disorders are related directly to language disorders or visual memory impairments. In order to most effectively correct a learning disability, it is crucial to know what processing difficulties are responsible for the problem (e.g., auditory processing, memory, receptive language, etc.). If a child’s reading difficulty is appropriately identified as dyslexia, then parents

Douglas County School System Food Service to Serve Summer Meals The Douglas County School Food Service Department is excited to announce details for their 2012 Seamless Summer Feeding Program. Every summer, food service offers both breakfast and lunch to the children of Douglas County at no charge. This amazing program began in 2007 and provides hot, nutritious meals to children who may not otherwise have access to such meals. Breakfast includes an entrée, 100% fruit juice and low-fat milk and lunch includes an entrée, vegetable, fresh fruit and low-fat milk. Any child under the age of 18, regardless of income status or enrollment in a summer school program, may eat breakfast and lunch for free. Adults are also welcome to eat but will be charged the adult price for breakfast ($1.60) and lunch ($2.80). Exact change is appreciated as the summer employees will not have cash drawers. The Seamless Summer Feeding Program is an extension of the National School Lunch Program. The USDA began the summer feeding program in an effort to combat childhood hunger. For many children, the only hot meal they receive is at school. In the summer, these children may go days without knowing if they are going to get three meals, one meal or no meals at all. This year they are serving food at eight sites in July. The dates and times are listed on the Douglas County School System’s website (www. douglas.k12.ga.us) under the Food Services Department section. All meals must be consumed on site. If you would like more information, please contact Linda Ankner at 770.651.2300.

Character Corner Accomplishment

By Charles Branson, Community Character Coalition I’ve been asked to consider “accomplishment” as a character word. In this context I think of the word in terms of what accomplishments build character or what someone with strong character traits can accomplish. Over the last few weeks I’ve given this a lot of thought. I kept coming to the conclusion that important accomplishments always create positive opportunities for yourself and others. In April I attended “Honors Night” at Douglas County High School.

While doing this, one of our diners told me that there was a couple in the woods behind the store, explaining that the man who lived back there was a stroke victim and might not be able to come out to us. I knew the couple. This man was very vulnerable. Actually, I found him a little frightening. I had never seen him smile. He could barely walk with a

Ambitious surgical techniques with safety emphasis are performed in hospital and in office settings. In addition, mammography, DEXA bone density scans and ultrasonography are among the special equipment used at the practice. They are very pleased to announce that Dr. Soundararajan is now certified in the da Vinci Surgical System, also known as robotic surgery, which provides the most advanced, minimally invasive options available when surgical intervention is needed.

She completed Medical School and her Residency at the University of Florida where she graduated Cum Laude. She says, “I became interested in medicine at age 12 while caring for my mother who had hepatitis. Fixing everyone’s cuts and bruises was my thing. Acceptance to medical school was one of my most grateful moments after working hard in undergraduate school at the University of Florida – go Gators! Medical school was challenging but rewarding. Delivering babies as a second year student was what inspired me to choose OB/GYN as a resident. Through the years, I have strived to offer women great care through excellent staff and providers. We have provided one-stop shopping with mammography, ultrasound, DEXA bone density screening, lab testing and now office procedures like Thermachoice ablation, Novasure ablation, and Essure sterilization. I have a special interest in interstitial cystitis, and I am pleased to offer my patients in-office diagnostic procedures and treatment options. I am also founder of the Douglas Women’s Center Med Spa, and enjoy offering women additional services which include skin rejuvenation, hair removal and spider vein treatment as well as Botox, Radiesse fillers and Latisse for longer, fuller lashes. I challenge all women to take care of themselves by getting annual check-ups, exercising, eating right and having fun.” Kimberly Kuncl, MD joined Douglas Women’s Center in 1999. Growing up on Chicago’s South Side, she overcame years of substandard education in local public schools before being accepted into a private high school.

After graduating, she earned a medical degree from Atlanta’s Morehouse School of Medicine and completed her residency at St. John Hospital & Medical Center.

types of cancers. These variables were factors in helping me decide to go into women’s health after medical school. Over the course of my career at Douglas Women’s Center, I have mostly been influenced to want to have a positive impact on families. My foremost interest is in healthy lifestyle modifications, so I try to strongly encourage patients to eat healthy, not smoke and stay active. I try to practice what I preach. I try to exercise regularly and eat healthy, but I am aware of the difficulties of maintaining these healthy lifestyle goals.” Dr. Kuncl was recently recognized for her perseverance and commitment to improving the lives and health of women when she was chosen to receive the 2012 Grinnell College Alumni Award. Vidya Soundararajan, MD, FACOG joined the premier team of professionals of Douglas Women’s Center, PC in 1999 and continues to serve as both obstetrician and gynecologist. Dr. Soundararajan was born in Philadelphia, Pa. She obtained her medical degree from Pennsylvania State University College of Medicine. During her career as a student, Dr. Soundararajan served as Residential Advisor at Penn State, and as Administrative Chief Resident at Washington University School of Medicine during her residency.

She completed Medical School at Morehouse School of Medicine and her Residency at the University of Texas – Houston. She says, “Ever since I was very young, I knew I wanted to become a doctor. I can remember my mother taking my “injured” dolls to the “hospital.” They would be gone for several days and they would come back “healed.” I wanted to be a part of the healing process. I chose OB/GYN because I feel strongly about women’s health and enjoy the diversity in the field. I enjoy developing long standing relationships with patients as their families grow and as their lives change.” Brittainy Dark, MD joined Douglas Women’s Center in 2010. She completed Medical School at Morehouse School of Medicine and her Residency at the University of Texas. She says, “I chose OB/GYN because it gives me the privilege to provide medical care to women throughout their reproductive years and their transition into menopause. I believe that effective communication and education allow my patients to make well-informed decisions regarding their health. Outside of the office, I enjoy exploring new and interesting places in Atlanta and beyond.” Lew-ann Parham, RNC, WHNP joined Douglas Women’s Center in 1986 and then again in 1998. She completed her Medical Education at Emory University. She says, “I was offered the opportunity to work in women’s health at the Douglas Women’s Center over 20 years ago. I was a registered nurse at that time and I soon discovered my passion in women’s health and infertility. Several years later, I pursued my passion by working with reproductive endocrinology /IVF (invitro fertilization). My desire for autonomy within this arena facilitated my decision to return to school at Emory in the Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner program. My interests include gardening, tennis, water sports, hiking and camping. On a good rainy or cold day, I love reading a good book! My favorite quotes are: “embrace your passion,” “follow your heart” and “dream your dream.” Sara Gorham, CNM joined Douglas Women’s Center in 2006. She completed her Medical Education at the University of Pennsylvania & University of Vermont. She says, “I love providing care, support and education to my patients. I believe that strong, healthy women can improve the world around us. However, women often neglect their own health care because they are so busy taking care of their loved ones. Through informative, patient-centered health care, women can be empowered to take better care of themselves and thus improve their lives and the lives of the ones they love.”

Specializing in modern vein treatment and care by one of the top surgeons in the U.S. Located in Lithia Springs on Bob Arnold Boulevard is a specialty Vein Center, not so well known in the Douglasville area. Yet the doctor

who founded the Alabama & Atlanta Vascular & Vein Centers is one of the most experienced and acknowledged physicians in the United States. Dr. John R. Kingsley is a vascular and general surgeon who specializes in phlebology, the art and science of the diagnosis and treatment of all vein problems. His focus is entirely the vein specialty. He is one of the U.S. doctors who helped develop modern and new methods to treat vein problems. Because of his experience, he is frequently sought out to teach other doctors how to perform the modern vein methods. He has trained doctors from around the U.S. including other doctors in Atlanta, and he travels annually to Japan and to Australia to teach and to speak to international symposia about his work. Recognized by the Consumers Research Council of America and other physicians and surgeons for the past seven years as one of the top surgeons in the United States of America, Dr. Kingsley is an internationally

acclaimed pioneer in vascular procedures, a world-renowned teacher, and a consultant to many in the medical arena. He has been awarded the prestigious honorable discharge from the United States Navy as a ranking Commander, has authored over 100 publications and presentations on vascular and vein surgery, methods and technique and he is the founder and director of two world class Vascular & Vein Centers, in Birmingham, Alabama and Atlanta, Georgia. Dr. Kingsley is also the co-founder and director of the Alabama Phlebology Training Institute, one of the premier training centers in the United States. More than 300 physicians and supporting staff have learned to use the innovative, advanced surgical techniques Dr. Kingsley has helped develop. These methods have changed the way vein surgery is performed today, replacing old outdated methods. A few years ago Dr. Suzanne Lowry, a local gynecologist, became aware that many of her patients were traveling to Birmingham to seek care by Dr. Kingsley. She had developed a modern medical building on Bob Arnold Boulevard, and she asked Dr.

Kingsley to consider traveling to Atlanta to take care of her patients and many other patients in the nearby area who might be suffering from vein disorders. Dr. Kingsley agreed to occupy the building, and constructed a modern vein center with two surgical treatment rooms, which allow him to perform all of the modern vein treatments in the local area. Dr. Kingsley is a phlebologist and vascular surgeon, certified by The American Board of Phlebology. Procedures performed by Dr.

Kingsley and his colleagues include the diagnosis and treatment of a range of vein disorder problems from tiny spider veins, to large varicose veins, to chronic, ulcerated venous ulcers. These procedures are virtually painless, and are done primarily with ultrasound and laser technologies that rarely require incisions. Dr. Kingsley’s patients typically return to work in 2-3 days. Beginning in 2000, Dr. Kingsley was one of the first physicians in the United States to develop and practice state-of-the-art vein treat-

ments using advanced technology. He is the recipient of numerous honors and awards including appointment as an Emeritus Fellow of the Australasian College of Phlebology. Anyone who interviews Dr. Kingsley is overwhelmed by his sensitivity and caring for people, his passion for excellence and

achieving the “fairytale� for his patients. The fairytale involves living each day the way you want to and being happy with the person you see in the mirror. Dr. Kingsley understands and teaches his colleagues and patients that even small changes can often dramatically improve your quality of life.

Offering superb, compassionate care. They treat their patients with respect.

Douglasville Eye clinic was founded in 2005 by David S. Hemmings, MD and Stephen D. Tedder, MD. Both physicians had the desire to establish a practice there they could care for patients the way they felt patients deserved. Dr. Hemmings and Dr. Tedder have been practicing in the Douglasville and Atlanta area since 2000, and together they have over 30 years of experience in the practice of Ophthalmology. They both deeply care about this community and the people in it who entrust their vision to them. Douglasville Eye Clinic offers complete ophthalmic care including eye exams and minor surgical procedures in their office and cataract and laser surgery at WellStar Douglas Hospital Outpatient Surgery Center. Douglasville Eye Clinic also provides a full-service optical shop with the latest fashion frames and sunglasses. The practice has invested in the latest state-of -theart ophthalmic equipment including digital photography, advanced measurements for lens implantation and optical coherence tomography. Dr. Hemmings received his undergraduate and medical degrees from the University of Kentucky and completed his residency in ophthalmology at the University of Michigan Kellogg Eye Center in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Dr. Hemmings chose to specialize in ophthalmology because he knows how precious sight is and he understands what a rare gift it is to be able to restore and help maintain good vision for his patients. He truly enjoys the relationships he forms with all of his patients. He is board certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology and is a fellow of the American Academy of Ophthalmology. Dr. Hemmings currently serves as Section Chair of Ophthalmology and Vice Chairman of the Department of Surgery at WellStar Douglas Hospital. He is Vice President of the Georgia Society of Ophthalmology and serves on the School Board at Harvester Christian Academy. He and his family reside in Winston and are members of Douglasville First United Methodist Church. Dr. Hemmings enjoys golf, travel, spending time with family and friends, Kentucky basketball and music. He and his wife, Diane, have two children, Nathan (age 8) and Nicholas (age 6). Dr. Tedder earned his undergraduate and medical degrees from Duke University and completed his residency in ophthalmology at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, Texas. Dr. Tedder chose ophthalmology because he enjoys the balance between surgical and medical care of patients. He also knows how priceless the sense of sight is. He said, “It allows us to see people of all ages and specialize on a small but quite complicated organ�. He is board certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology and is a fellow of the American Academy of Ophthalmology. Dr. Tedder lives in Smyrna with his wife, Robin, and new baby Jackson. He enjoys golf, travel, Duke basketball and spending time with family and friends. The physicians and staff at Douglasville Eye Clinic are well-trained and compassionate. They treat all of their patients with the utmost of respect. In order to give patients the best quality care, Dr. Hemmings and Dr. Tedder spend time with their patients and listen attentively to their concerns.

Providing compassionate and complete oral care. The mission of Douglas Dental Care is to create a team environment between patients, staff, and community to provide compassionate and complete oral care to every

patient so they will leave with a healthy, beautiful smile. By utilizing the latest proven dental advances, they are able to make dental visits as comfortable and worry-free as possible. They also seek to educate their patients on oral health and preventive care, and to be a positive presence in the community through volunteerism and pro-bono services in some cases. Many services are offered including; comprehensive exams, tooth whitening systems, clean-

ings, scaling and root planing (deep cleanings), fluoride treatment, oral hygiene instruction, oral cancer screenings, fillings, crowns, veneers, bridges, implants, root canal treatments, extractions, dentures, and anti-snoring aids. The practice features some of the latest equipment including the Biolase laser, and digital

x-rays. For those who are looking for relief from snoring, several anti-snoring aids are available. Joel R. Tidwell, DDS has been practicing general dentistry in Douglasville for over 30 years.

He earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Emory University. His undergraduate studies were completed at the University of Georgia. In 2004, Dr. Tidwell was pleased to add Dimitri Arfanakis, DMD, a graduate of the

Boston University Goldman School of Dental Medicine, as an associate. Dr. Dimitri (as he is affectionately known) completed both his undergraduate and dental education at Boston University. He has been a clinical and didactic instructor of dental hygiene at West Georgia Technical College in Douglasville since 2007. Dr. Dimitri also consults with the Georgia Medical Care foundation, making sure that state funds are appropriately allocated to necessary procedures for those patients. In October 2011, Dr. Tidwell and Dr. Dimitri became partners and formed the current dental practice, Douglas Dental Care. This

practice has been using the latest technology along with fundamental dental practices to serve its growing patient base. Dr. Tidwell and Dr. Dimitri look forward to serving the community for many years to come. Most of their team has worked together for over 10 years. Of course, as their practice grew, they added to their team. Every

member of their staff does an amazing job of personalizing each patient’s visit, giving individualized care in all aspects from emergency appointments to allaying personal fears to knowing your name (and probably your family members’ names too). Joel Tidwell chose dentistry as a profession because he wanted to be of service to the community. According to Dr. Tidwell,

“I try to treat my patients and all people like I would like to be treated”. He enjoys following UGA sports, playing golf, and being an active member of First Methodist Church For Dimitri Arfanakis becoming a dentist was a childhood dream that came true. His favorite quote, by Albert Einstein, is “There

are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle”. He enjoys spending time with his family, volunteering at various charitable organizations, and being an active member of Saint Theresa. Douglas Dental Care is located at 3668 Highway 5, between Kings Highway and Central Church Road. They are open Monday

through Friday from 8:00am to 5:00pm with variable extended hours until 6:00pm. They can be reached at 770.949.1821 or accessed on the web at www.douglasdentalcare.com.

The Marketplace Ministry Move of God

When evangelist Billy Graham was recently asked where he saw God moving today, he described what is becoming known as the marketplace ministry movement of God. In contrast to his crusades, he said, “today, I sense something different is happening. …the Holy Spirit is working in a new way. He’s moving through people where they work and through one-on-one relationships to accomplish great things. They are demonstrating God’s love to those around them, not just with words, but in deed.” All over the world, men and women are taking Christianity to work with them – but not in the traditional manner. They understand that Christianity is not a performance or demonstration of religious beliefs – it is a lifestyle which permeates every action, every minute of every day. Christians are called to be influential in society. Marketplace Christians desire for God’s kingdom to come and God’s will to be done on earth as it is in heaven. For most of His life, Jesus had a marketplace ministry. Although Jesus is both our King and our Priest, He spent much more of His life as a carpenter, than as a minister. When Jesus did become publicly known, He chose fishermen, a tax collector, and other common tradesmen – none of the disciples were priests or scribes. Jesus taught in the marketplace, and Jesus chose to call his disciples from the marketplace. There are people who will never hear the gospel because they

will never enter a church building. As Christians, you and I may well be the only representative of God that they will ever encounter. Our work is our service to God when we reflect His life through our life and work. Whether it is in Christian mission work, or working at the local hardware store, God calls each of us to our vocation. He wants to use us where we are, while we are doing what we are doing. God’s interest is not simply that we do holy activities but that we become holy people. God created us to reflect His glory in whatever we do. Whether you own your own business or work for someone else, you please God when you exhibit Christ-like attitudes of love, humility, grace, and power in your daily work. God wants to use Christians in all areas of their life and work. Marketplace Ministry proclaims Christ to the world by demonstrating God’s love and power to people who are all around us, wherever we are.

Douglas County Literacy Council Seeks New Students and Teachers The Douglas County Literacy Council and their new partner, Heritage Baptist Church is seeking new students and teachers to help stamp out illiteracy in Douglas County. If you are interested in working one-on-one with a person who wants to learn to read, this is your opportunity. If you know someone who wants to learn to read or needs help reaching the point they can enter the GED program, this might be the answer to their needs. Dr. Annette G. Cash, who serves on the Douglas County Literacy Council Board is accepting applications from potential teachers who are willing to give of their time to teach someone to read. You do not have to be a professional; just have the deep desire to help someone enjoy the ability to read a newspaper, road sign or menu. After several weeks of training under the directions of Dr. Cash, new teachers are introduced to students who have limited or no reading skills and lives are changed. If you are interested in finding out more about the Tutor Training Class, would like to sign up to take the class or know someone who would like to become a student in a confidential oneon-one learn to read setting, please call 770.949.2319.
