dining Your Favorite Restaurants We asked our Facebook fans to tell us about their favorite local restaurants in a couple of sentences. The following are just a few of the responses we received within the hour of posting!

Burke’s Grill!! They are amazing! They offer a Paleo dish every day, and the food is simply delicious! – Jennifer Costa We love Provino’s! They have awesome food, wonderful staff, a free meal on your birthday, and on top of all that my hubby proposed to me there! Therefore, there is definitely a soft place in my heart for Provino’s! Marguerite Crawford Gumbeaux’s! I was in New Orleans for my birthday a couple of years ago and had a local there tell me that Gumbeaux’s was the best Cajun they’d ever had. (They stayed in Douglasville while their home was repaired after Katrina.) Now that is saying something! - April Easterwood I LOVE Taste of Thai! Very good food, great service, and nice atmosphere! - Robin Sherer FABIANO’S! Not only is everything fresh, but it’s on the square, family friendly and has a wonderful fun atmosphere. I love the fried knots they serve for dessert...it’s mouth watering good. - Jennifer Edwards I love Eva’s Bakeshop, her desserts are incredible and the Cuban sandwich is incredible! - Jessica Dix My fiancé and I love Atlantic Buffet, I get my yummy sushi and he gets his custom hibachi. - Stephanie Bynum Tokyo Japanese Steak House always impresses me. The staff is very friendly and always makes me feel like I want to go back! - Buffi Triplett I like Szechuan Village Chinese Restaurant. They have been in Douglasville over 30 years. Steve, the owner is very friendly and remembers his customers. Food and service is very good. Atmosphere is very pleasant. - Lila Wiley Cinco de Mayo has the best chile relleno in Douglasville and great service. Ask for Tito. He’ll make sure you have a great laugh and a great time! – Rebekah Marshall I like Monterrey on Highway 5. It’s been a family favorite since I was a little girl! The food is always excellent and the staff is friendly. Monterrey is not just a restaurant; it’s a place that I have many memories of my father! - Heather Harmon Burke’s Grill is a favorite in our house.

arts & entertainment Video Game Review By Chadd Franklin, visit his website: chaddstournamentfuntime.com Hello Gaming Community! This month I am reviewing some of my favorite PS3 and Xbox 360 games. I am doing this largely because by the time you see this review the Playstation 4 and Xbox One should be getting close to release and you need to remember your past to be ready for the future. All the games talked about receive 5 out of 5’s. Top PLAYSTATION 3 picks Uncharted 2 - In my opinion, Uncharted 2 single-handedly helped sell more PS3’s than any other game. It’s an action/adventure game starring Nathan Drake who could easily give Indiana Jones a run for his money. (I said it and I mean it!) I could go on about this game, but as I said in my original review, YOU MUST EXPERIENCE THIS GAME. It’s that good. Little Big Planet 2 - In this release, the sky’s the limit. You make your own games including fighting and adventure and share with other PS3 players and download theirs as well. You can make your own characters as well. Top Xbox 360 picks Halo 4 – It’s Halo - need I say more. Halo is one of the reasons why we purchase an Xbox. I believe Xbox wouldn’t have survived without Halo. Halo 4 was the first one not released by Bungie and 343 studios had a lot to prove. I think they proved it and then some. Call of Duty Series - While these games are available on PS3, most players prefer it on the Xbox 360. Players get maps quicker on the 360 than on PS3; however, the downside to it is the players chatting during a match, but they can be muted.

Video Game Review: Disney Infinity By Dylan Collins I saw promos for Disney Infinity for months leading up to its release, but I didn’t understand what it was. I assumed it was an MMO (Massively Multiplayer Online game) of some kind, but I did some research on the game and realized it’s not an MMO at all. Disney Infinity is two things, really. A massive Toy Box where you can unlock things and build your own levels and worlds, and a free-roaming adventure game when you use various playsets to complete missions and explore the worlds in the game. The characters and playsets can be switched around mid-game, so if you are in Pirates of the Caribbean and decide that Jack Sparrow needs a break, you can swap him out for Hector Barbossa. The base set comes with three very good quality vinyl figures; Jack Sparrow, Sulley from Monster’s University, and Mr. Incredible. It also comes with their playsets as well. Each playset is an open world adventure with a main quest and several side quests to complete. They are all pretty fun and take roughly between three to eight hours to complete. The downside of the game is that if you want to play two-player co-op locally, you need to have two figures from the playset. If you’re a collector, this is a game you’re going to enjoy. There are things to collect in the game and things to collect in the real world. So as long as your wallet obliges you, you’re going to love it. There are 17 figures in Wave 1, which is complete, and at the time of this writing, Wave 2 has just started with some GameStop and Wal-Mart exclusives. There are also special crystal variants of some of the figures to collect, AND in addition to that, there are Power Discs that you can buy that add stuff to the game as well. You can be perfectly happy just having a few figures and playing the game, but it’s really difficult to resist wanting to get more. In a day and age where downloadable content for games costs $20, it’s nice to be able to spend $13 and get something that adds to your experience. Physically holding the figures and swapping them out, then watching them appear in the game sort of takes me back to being a kid. The figures all have their own memory, so when you level a figure up, and take it to a friend’s house, it retains that level. I would highly recommend this game. A fairly sizeable community of adults have gotten into the game and the collecting aspect, so it’s not just a kid’s thing. Kids, however, will go crazy for it. The level creation system is very intuitive and children should not have much of a problem making their own levels and toy boxes. At the end of the day, with some full games costing 60 dollars that are only about eight hours long, and with downloadable content being so expensive, I think that this is an excellent value for the money, and it’s just a really fun game for the young and the young at heart.

Photography Tips Photo Challenge By Mandie Newsom, owner of Captured, by Mandie Newsom, www.mandienewsom.com, 770.570.9247

I have really enjoyed seeing the images you’ve emailed in from the fall colors challenge. Please, continue to share with me. I am truly impressed and inspired by your creativity! This month, I want to challenge you to think outside of the box a little. For the four weeks of November, I want you to capture images of things you are grateful for. Think about things that are both animate and inanimate. Get creative with your shots!

Here’s a list of ideas to get your creative juices flowing! Feel free to choose from these, or come up with your own. I can’t wait to see all of the many things you are grateful for this Thanksgiving season! Family Faith Country Job Food

Love Friends Health Animals Memory

Holiday Travel Nature Sports Home

Be sure to email me your favorites from the month at mandie@mandienewsom.com

I look forward to seeing what you are thankful for! As we approach the holidays, I especially think it’s important to remember to always back up your images. Having them stored in more than one place is ideal. There are many websites out there that offer online back-up for as little at $5/month. Also, don’t delay in printing them and storing them in an archival safe album. You and yours will treasure your photographs (and memories) for many years to come!

Senior Living

Dementia and Alzheimer’s By Melissa Murphy. Administrator at Pine Knoll Nursing & Rehab Center, Carrollton, 770.832.8243, mmurphy@cypresshealthgroup.com As I wrote about last month, I recently gave a talk about aging and dignity. During the talk, I did offer some not-so-fun facts, which I am going to share with you now. 1. The baby boomers have begun to turn 65. 2. Twenty years from now, this age group will double, reaching

all that stuff out. I have no financial advice either (even if I did, it’s a bad idea to get financial advice from me). What I can point out to you is that if you want to have any dignity as you age, it’s a good idea to think about what all of these facts mean to you. Who will assist you if you need assistance? What form of assistance would you like if you could afford it? What form of assistance can you actually afford? These are thoughts that none of us care to have. We always think it won’t happen to us, but let me restate fact #3. Seventy percent of us who reach age 65 will need some form of care or service in our lives for an average of three years. According to a recent national poll of adults age 40 and older, about

marriage & family The Family Connection The Art of Being Thankful By Kerry Patuka, a degreed and certified educator, licensed minister and founder of Drive 5 Ministries, a ministry for churches and children’s ministry. kerrydrive5@yahoo.com

Every good parent, teacher and grandparent asks children these two important questions: “What’s the magic word?” and “What do you say?” Of course, we all know the answers, but saying ‘please’ and ‘thank you’ is just the beginning of thankfulness. The basics of being thankful can be taught but the art of being thankful is caught. We need to live our lives with an attitude of gratitude and model that for our children through our words and actions. As adults, we often find it difficult to be thankful when things get tough, but we often expect our kids to be thankful when they are just not feeling it. Hard times to us include job stress, financial problems, relationship difficulties, ill health and more. But to our kids, not getting to play with a friend, lots of homework, not being able to buy a toy or having to eat something they do not want to eat are all tough times. Add to that being picked on, having a learning disability or not fitting in at school and our kids can find vey little to be thankful for in their everyday lives. Like us, our kids can feel overwhelmed, disgruntled and unthankful. We look at their ‘issues’ and we tend to brush them off, but they are real to them. This is where we as parents must teach, model and create ways to instill gratefulness into their character.

An old joke describes a terrible stormy Sunday night at church following a week of bad weather that had brought much damage to the community. The parishioners are all wondering what their perpetually cheerful and thankful pastor could say that was good about this week. The pastor gets up there and begins to pray and thank God that the weather is not always like this. Now that is the art of being thankful! We know how to teach the rudiments of being thankful and we all know we have days where we can do a better job modeling gratitude, but how do we instill it? We need to be consistent in our teaching and modeling, but here are some other ideas to help make gratefulness a part of our children. One of the best ways to teach thankfulness is through giving and helping others. It’s easier to see what we have been blessed with, when we focus on the needs of others. Find ways that your kids can help you to help others. Collecting food or other items for needy families, spending time with older people in a nursing home, visiting older people from your church who can’t get out of the house much or cleaning your church or school. When giving a gift, involve your children in selecting the item, making a card or drawing a picture, as well as wrapping and giving the gift. Responsibilities at home teach gratefulness for all the effort, time and money it takes to live life. Every child should have things that they are responsible to help with or to do on their own to help the home keep running. Young children can help by sorting their own laundry, dusting, setting the table, caring for pets and more. As they get older, they can take on more chores. These should be jobs they do not get paid to do. These are jobs they do because they are a part of the family. Not putting your toys away means they may be stepped on and broken, leaving your bike in the driveway means it might get hit by a car and not caring for your iPod, computer or wii means it may stop working. Having kids care for their own stuff and suffering the consequences when they do not, builds responsibility and thankfulness. The heart of not caring for things is a heart of ingratitude. As we prepare for the season of thanks, let’s take the time to prepare our kids to live a life of thankfulness. As with any art, becoming a grateful person takes many years and much practice until our kids have this instilled into their character. When we see our kids giving on their own, caring for their things and being thankful without being asked “what do we say?”, then we know they are on their way.

Your Health Fighting and/or Avoiding the Flu By Dr. Awais Butt, Planet Chiropractic, 2173 Fairburn Road, 770.783.1799, myplanetchiro.com, mychiro@myplanetchiro.com

Every year there is a debate about whether to get the flu shot. The question is - what if there is a better way to protect ourselves and families from the influenza virus? In a recent article by the Journal of Vertebral Subluxation Research titled “Flu Vaccine: Sorting Fact from Fiction” the same question was posed. The overall consensus is that the vaccine is not beneficial and that other options are more beneficial. The article reported that many studies have showed the connection between chiropractic, the nervous system, and immune function. Studies in Ontario Canada to determine whether the incidence of influenza there has decreased following the introduction of their Universal Influenza Immunization Campaign in 2000, have found that there is no decrease in the mean monthly influenza rate following the introduction of their campaign. Another study from the Archives of Internal Medicine reported that there has not been a decrease in mortality rates in any age group since increasing their vaccinations and that the benefits of flu vaccines are overestimated. Another study has shown that there is an increased likelihood of death unrelated to the flu in people between the ages of 65 to 74 who receive the flu vaccine. To add to all this, the majority of the influenza vaccines in the United States contain the methyl mercury based

preservative, which has been linked to autism, Alzheimer’s, and Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD). The National Vaccine Information Center suggests the following to help you avoid the flu or fight it off if you do get it: 1. If you have the flu, stay home until you are well. 2. If you know a person sick with the flu, avoid contact until they are well. 3. Wash your hands frequently. 4. Drink plenty of fluids, especially water. 5. Get adequate rest. 6. Eat a wholesome diet rich in vitamins and minerals, especially foods containing vitamin D (such as cod liver oil). 7. Spend a few minutes a day in sunlight to help your body make and store vitamin D. 8. Consider structural corrective chiropractic adjustments for healing and maintaining health. 9. Exercise regularly when you are well. 10. Lower stress through relaxation and other lifestyle changes. Structural corrective chiropractic adjustments have a positive effect on the immune system function. Structural correction based chiropractors correct structural abnormalities that result in interference of the nervous system by affecting the function of the nervous system. Since the beginning of chiropractic care, chiropractors have insisted that microbes and viruses do not affect each of us the same, and rather a healthy immune system allows us to fight off attacking microbes. For more information go to the National Vaccine Information Center’s website and download the original article.

Personal Trainer Battling Belly Fat? By Robin Stricklin, Certified Personal Training, Gold’s Gym Personal Training, 770.949.1116

Here are some fast facts about belly fat: 1. It is the most dangerous fat on your body 2. It is linked to diabetes, stroke, heart disease & cancer. 3. Where’s the danger zone? 35+ inches for women and 40+inches for men. 4. What works to get rid of it? Diet and exercise; NOT crunches.

to four hours a week doing some form of cardio exercise: walking the dog, jogging, riding a bike, taking a class. And, strength train three times a week for 30 minutes to add muscle to your body. Remember, whatever you choose to do should be something you can realistically maintain. This is about lifestyle change. This is not event driven. You don’t want to go back to your old ways. You are in this for the long haul. Once you start losing weight and body fat, the payoff comes. For every pound of belly fat lost, health risks are reduced. So get after that belly fat and get healthy!

Here are the details about these facts. Danger Zone Equals Disease Zone: The fat lurking under that flesh is a different kind of fat. There are two kinds of belly fat: that which you can pinch – subcutaneous and that which surrounds your organs – visceral fat. The second is hazardous to your health. Studies show a strong correlation between a large waistline and risk of death. Those who store fat in their bellies are at higher risk for heart disease, stroke, diabetes and certain cancers. Visceral fat secretes hormones and lipids such as triglycerides that are harmful to the body. And unfortunately, 50% of men and 70% of women between the ages of 50-79 have a waistline that fits the definition of “abdominal obesity”. How to get rid of it and reduce the risk? There is no magic formula, but it can be done, and it is not as hard as you think. Diet, combined with exercise, gets after the visceral fat. Eat more vegetables, fruits and whole grains. Focus on foods with potassium, calcium, dietary fiber and vitamin D. Cut back on sugars – especially sugar-sweetened beverages; saturated fats and refined flour found in desserts. You can eat every day foods every day, just in moderation. Drink plenty of water and get moving. Spend at least three

Winter Skin Woes By Leanne Lee, Bliss Hair Salon and Day Spa, 4040 Chapel Hill Road, 770.942.1100 Wintry weather brings with it a host of issues for the skin. When skin is dry, it’s depleted of its natural protective lipid barrier. This lowers skin’s defenses against environmental assaults, and skin can respond with conditions such as, itching and redness. Your first line of defense is a gentle, creamy cleanser. Many people have an inclination to cleanse less in the winter, because they feel they are stripping their skin. But, the answer is not to skip cleansing, but to use a more gentle cleanser that doesn’t strip the skin of its natural oils. A gentle exfoliant is another necessity to keep skin in its best condition. Speak with a skincare therapist to find out what the best form of exfoliation is for your skin. Next in line for silky smooth skin is a serum or hydrating fluid and a nourishing cream. A light hydrating lotion or serum replaces water loss and minimizes fine lines. Follow this with a cream that is suited for your skin. Dry skin types need an ultra-rich emollient cream that protects and repairs dry skin. If your skin still needs extra moisture, a moisturizing mask is a great tool to have in your skincare arsenal. Use it once per week or when your skin needs extra help. This might be the night after a little too much wine, and salty foods and too little rest!

Nail Care Pointers

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

Identifying Nail Damage Nail damage can result from numerous physical conditions or environmental causes. It is important to determine the type of nail damage you have in order to choose the correct treatment. There are many telltale signs of nail conditions that will help identify which treatments, services, and products are best for your recovery and maintenance. Damaged nails can be dry, weak, ridged, or thin. Dry nails have vertical ridges, flake at the free edge, and are brittle and break easily. Weak nails are very thin – they tear, split and peel easily. On weak nails, layering at the free edge usually extends beyond the free edge. Very thin nails have excessive splitting and peeling at the free edge. Severely damaged nails are both thin and weak – they flake and split. The free edge disintegrates when filed and has slow or no growth. Nail types are similar to skin types. Nails can be dry, oily, or thin. Each nail type requires a specific treatment for nail damage problems. Dry nails need hydrating conditioners and moisturizers, warm oil soak, waterless manicures, and paraffin treatments. Weak nails need hydrating and moisturizing strengtheners, waterless manicures, warm oil soak, and avoidance of buffing. Thin nails need hydrating strengtheners, waterless manicures, and avoidance of buffing. Severely damaged nails need consistent hydration, waterless manicures, and avoidance of filing or buffing. Soft weak nails need a nail hardener for strength. For any nail types – it is also important to apply cuticle oil daily to moisturize dry cuticles. Nail damage – like any damage – is easier prevented than repaired.

The following pointers will help you prevent nail damage. Avoid soaking your nails in water. Water causes the nail plate to swell. Once the water evaporates, the nail plate shrinks and causes the nail polish to chip. Avoid soaking your nails in soapy water. Soap strips the nail plates of their natural oils and moisture. Avoid exposure to harsh chemicals and overexposure to water. Use gloves when doing water chores in order to protect your nails from damage. Do not bite your nails. Do not use your nails as tools. Keep your nails at a reasonable length (depending on their condition). Always file your nails gently in one direction to prevent damage. Always use cuticle oil along with a strengthener to help your nails reach and maintain a healthy state. Nail damage can be simple or complex. If you are not sure how to proceed to recover from damaged nails then contact a licensed nail care professional for a manicure, consultation and evaluation. A knowledgeable nail care professional will help you understand the damage and what products are best to treat your particular nail damage problem.

• The premium tax credit can help make the cost of purchasing health insurance coverage through the Marketplace more affordable for individuals and families with low to moderate incomes. • You may have received a letter from your employer providing information about the new Marketplace, and any health insurance coverage your employer may offer. For more information about coverage options through the Marketplace, visit HealthCare.gov. If you have questions about the coverage offered by your employer, please contact your employer. Considerations for 2013 Open Enrollment for the Health Insurance • Marketplace: The open enrollment period to purchase health care coverage through the new Health Insurance Marketplace began October 1. When you get health insurance through the marketplace, you may be able to get advance payments of the premium tax credit that will immediately help lower your monthly premium. • Filing Requirement: If you do not have a tax filing requirement, you do not need to file a 2013 federal tax return to establish future eligibility or qualify for future financial assistance, including advance payments of the premium tax credit to purchase health insurance coverage through a Health Insurance Marketplace. • W-2 Reporting of Employer Coverage: Certain employers are required to report the value of the health insurance coverage they provide. The value of health care coverage as reported by your employer in box 12 and identified by Code DD on your Form W-2 is not taxable. • Itemized Medical Expenses: You can deduct your un-reimbursed medical and dental expenses that exceed 10 percent of your adjusted gross income on your 2013 tax return. The 7.5 percent threshold will remain for those 65 and older for tax years 2013 through 2016. • Other ACA Tax Provisions: Additional Medicare Tax, Premium Rebate for Medical Loss Ratio, Health Flexible Spending Arrangements, Health Saving Accounts, and Net Investment Income Tax. Looking ahead to 2014 • Premium Tax Credit: To claim the premium tax credit, you must get insurance through the Marketplace. You can elect to have advance payments of the tax credit sent directly to your insurer during 2014, or wait to claim the credit when you file your tax return in 2015. If you choose to have advance payments sent to your insurer, you will have to reconcile the payments on your 2014 tax return filed in 2015. • Individual Shared Responsibility Payment: Starting January 2014, you and your family must either have health care coverage, have an exemption from coverage, or make a payment when you file your 2014 tax return in 2015.

What Gives Leaves Their Color? 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

Have you booked your leaf viewing trip yet? With the current state of the government, many of our beloved treasures may be closed this year. Stick close to State Parks and back country roads for the best leaf spotting with minimal hassle. What makes us head to the mountains in droves during leaf season anyway? I know that I love to watch the transformation from green to brilliant hues, leaving me to wonder how autumn color happens in the first place. For years, scientists have worked to understand the changes that happen to trees and shrubs in the autumn. Every detail may not yet be revealed, but it is known that three factors influence autumn leaf color; leaf pigments, length of night, and weather. The timing of the color change and leaf fall is primarily regulated by the calendar, that is, the increasing length of night. As days grow shorter, and nights grow longer and cooler, biochemical processes in the leaf begin to paint the landscape with nature’s autumn palette. A color palette needs pigments, and there are three types that are involved in autumn color. Chlorophyll, which gives leaves their basic green color. It is necessary for photosynthesis, the chemical reaction that enables plants to use sunlight to manufacture sugars for their food. Trees in the temperate zones store these sugars for their winter dormant period. Carotenoids, which produce yellow, orange, and brown colors in such things as corn, carrots, and daffodils, as well as rutabagas, buttercups, and bananas. Anthocyanins, which give color to things such as cranberries, red apples, concord grapes, blueberries, cherries, strawberries, and plums. They are water soluble and appear in the watery liquid of leaf cells. Both chlorophyll and carotenoids are present in the chloroplasts of leaf cells throughout the growing season. Most anthocyanins are produced in the autumn, in response to bright light and excess plant sugars within leaf cells. During the growing season, chlorophyll is continually being produced and broken down and leaves appear green. As night length increases in the autumn, chlorophyll production slows down and then stops and eventually all the chlorophyll is destroyed. The carotenoids that are present in the leaf are then unmasked and show their colors. As leaves begin the process leading up to their fall, the veins that carry fluids into and out of the leaf gradually close off as a layer of cells forms at the base of each leaf. These clogged veins trap sugars in the leaf and promote the production of anthocyanins. Once this layer is complete and the connecting tissues are sealed off, the leaf is ready to fall. Certain colors are characteristic of particular species. Leaves of some species such as the elms simply shrivel up and fall, exhibiting little color other than drab brown. The timing of the color change also varies by species, as best described by sourwoods and oaks. These differences in timing among species seem to be genetically inherited. The amount and brilliance of the colors that develop in any particular autumn season are related to weather conditions that occur before and during the time the chlorophyll in the leaves is dwindling. Temperature and moisture are the main influences.

Decorating Tips Dining in Style

770.459.9096, www.karenhartleyinteriors.com

With the holidays approaching, this is the time of the year when almost everyone actually uses the dining room. Very soon the entire family will be gathering around the dining room table. Your probably think the dining room is the easiest of all rooms to furnish and decorate. Once you have your table and chairs, that’s all there is to it! While that’s the biggest part of your overall dining room plan, it’s far from all. It’s important to provide for the comfort of your guests, and the convenience of you, the host and or hostess. I have found that there is usually a big problem unique to this room! Any ideas what that might be? To me as a decorator, it’s keeping the overall décor of this room warm and inviting despite all the inevitable wood that usually ends up taking center

stage. Providing a successful mix of the wood dining room pieces, along with window treatments, area rugs and lighting takes careful consideration and planning. Color psychology takes on added significance in the dining room because color, research clearly shows, profoundly influences appetite. Did you know that changing a restaurant’s color scheme has been known to make a failing restaurant a success, despite their excellent food? Clear colors have the same stimulating effect on appetites as they do on atmosphere. Blue is particularly restful, encouraging leisurely meals. Fullstrength red is exciting and to be used with discretion, but lighter shades, such as rose, or pinkish hues are pleasant to eat by. Yellow is its usual gay and sunny self. Neutrals tend to liven up dining rooms with positive and effective color splashes. In the presence of food, stick to clear lighter shades of green. I also recommend avoiding shades of purple such as lavender and violet, as they tend to be appetite suppressants. Likewise, using drab colors in your dining room décor are rarely successful. Since much of our dining is done at night, it’s important to test colors under artificial light. It turns some colors muddy, and would ultimately make food look less appealing. Lighting should be flexible to allow different levels of light for many activities. A central chandelier can be controlled with a dimmer switch. Chairs alone are a far from simple choice. Massive ones take up too much space, so you must find well-designed chairs that are comfortable as well. Upholstered slipper chairs are a wonderful addition and mix well with any wood tones. Tables come in all shapes and sizes. The size should fit both the room and your family, and, ideally, be designed for easy expansion. Round and oval dining room tables provide for an ease of conversation that most of my clients find very appealing.

government NEWS & VIEWS FROM THE MAYOR Each month Douglasville’s Mayor, Harvey Persons writes a column about a subject which is of interest to many residents of Douglasville, and Douglas County. The city of Douglasville’s website is: www.ci.douglasville.ga.us.

I am constantly bragging about the City of Douglasville’s employees, and I truly believe this local government has a very dedicated and talented group of employees. I consider them to be the most valuable component of our City government. I also expect these men and women to be very good workers and to provide excellent “customer service” to the citizens of and visitors to Douglasville Douglas County. And when I do not feel we are delivering excellent customer service, I let the top staff members know it. From the early days of my campaigning for the office of Mayor of Douglasville up to the present time, I have been consistent and passionate in my message that I want our community to be one of the premier places in America to live, work, play, and raise a family. For that to happen, Douglasville must have a work force committed to high quality customer service and knowledgeable on how to achieve that goal. CUSTOMER SERVICE TRAINING. For some people, I think the concept of very good customer service is almost “second nature” while for others it must be learned and consciously implemented. After all, individuals are different. Regardless, I believe a business including a local government, such as the City of Douglasville can develop, maintain, and deliver outstanding customer service. That is one of my priorities. In this month’s Chapel Hill News and Views column, I want to tell you about some of the things we are doing. Also, I want to invite you to let me know whenever you experience either very good customer service from one of the City’s employees, or the reverse when one of our employees falls far short of delivering high quality service to you the citizen...our customer. Recently, many City of Douglasville employees participated in a half day customer service training class coordinated by the City’s Human Resources Department and using an instructor from the University of Georgia’s Institute of Government. Focused specific customer service training is essential, I believe, because those organizations who invest in customer service training of their employees will realize a quick return on their investment. As a result of our customer service training near the end of September, we expect to see: (a) Improved internal/external customer satisfaction. (b) Improved employee relations. (c) A reduction in citizen complaints. (d) An increase in the percent rate of resolving complaints. (e) Improved staff morale and a reduced turnover rate. (f) A reduction in the cost of dealing with and resolving complaints. Unlike what you find in the private sector where I worked for more than 40 years, our external customers basically the citizens and taxpayers of Douglasville do not have the option of going elsewhere to get what they need from this municipal government. Now, I want to be sure that our citizens/taxpayers/customers have a positive experience when they have con-

tact with our City employees. I want our citizens and I want visitors to our community to get their questions answered correctly the first time. Mediocre customer service from our employees frankly is unacceptable. EMPLOYEE RECOGNITION. Yes, I have a firm commitment to the citizens and taxpayers of Douglasville to make sure City employees go the extra mile in serving the public. I also have a firm commitment to our City employees to make sure they get the recognition and appreciation which I believe they should receive. Let me tell you three current ways we are doing this. First, on October 2 we had this City government’s annual Employee Appreciation Day. Employees gathered during their lunch period in O’Neal Plaza to enjoy food, fellowship, and a pat on the back from me and the City’s other elected officials. It is just a small way of saying thank you to our City employees. Then, on December 5, we will hold our annual Employee Service Awards event in the Conference Center. From the various City departments, we’ll recognize the service provided by employees who have faithfully served for five years, ten years, 15 years, 20 years, and longer. Finally, on October 7 the City Council approved the 2014 medical, dental, and related insurance plans for current City employees and their dependents, as well as eligible retirees and elected officials. And while a limited amount of the costs are the responsibility of the individuals themselves, I think the City of Douglasville now and in the past has provided an excellent health insurance program at a minimum out of pocket cost to our employees. CLOSING COMMENT. I tell people the two most visible groups of employees of the City of Douglasville are the uniform police officers who patrol our streets in their vehicles and on motorcycles and the Sanitation Department workers on our trash and garbage trucks. And, believe me, I and the City Manager are most likely to hear from citizens when these employees do not provide quality customer services or when they go way above the call of duty. We are blessed, I believe, to have dedicated police officers and sanitation workers. We are also fortunate to have dedicated people in the other parts of City government, including those in jobs where there seldom is face to face contact with the public. Looking ahead to Thanksgiving and the end of this month, let me conclude by thanking each of you for being part of this great community. May God bless you and your family. Remember, you can reach me at 678.449.3000 or e mail me at personsh@douglasvillega.gov. Check out the City’s web site at www. ci.douglasville.ga.us.

Because times are financially tough many individuals are choosing to carry reduced auto liability coverage as well as other auto insurance coverage. This decision can create financial problems for both those at fault and victims of auto collisions. Therefore, this article will provide some useful information about auto insurance coverage, and will hopefully help readers make informed choices about carrying adequate insurance coverage. Determining how much insurance is adequate for your needs is very subjective to your individual situation. Thinking that getting the most affordable coverage can actually becomes a false economy, which can jeopardize your family’s financial well being. Understanding the different types of insurance available in Georgia in addition to assessing your own financial situation will help you make sure that you are covered to the extent that your budget allows. Liability. This coverage pays for accidental bodily injury and property damages to others. Injury damages include medical expenses, pain and suffering and lost wages. Property damage includes damaged property and automobiles. This coverage also pays defense and court costs. In Georgia, to drive legally on public roads drivers must maintain automobile bodily injury liability insurance for at least the minimum of $25,000 per person, $50,000 per occurrence and Property Damage liability of $25,000 per occurrence. Depending on your circumstances you may want to have additional coverage above and beyond the mandatory minimum. For example, if you have assets you will want to carry liability coverage to the extent that your assets are protected. For those with significant wealth or earning potential, you may want to explore purchasing an umbrella policy, which will protect your assets and earnings in addition to the limits of your liability policy. Collision. This coverage pays for damages to your vehicle caused by collision with another vehicle or object. This coverage will protect you by having your insurance company pay to repair or replace your vehicle if the collision is your fault or in cases where liability of the collision is in dispute. The last thing our clients need after being injured in a collision is worrying about how they will get around if the at-fault driver’s insurance refuses to cover the costs of their inoperable vehicle. Comprehensive. This coverage pays for loss or damage to the insured vehicle that doesn’t occur in an auto accident. The types of damages comprehensive insurance covers include loss caused by fire, wind, hail, flood, vandalism or theft. Rental Reimbursement. This coverage will pay for a rental car if your car is damaged due to an auto accident. Often this coverage has

a daily allowance for a rental car. Rental reimbursement is important to those who must have a car while their car is getting repaired or replaced. Medical Coverage. Pays medical expenses regardless of fault when the expenses are caused by an auto collision. A substantial amount of “med pay” as the coverage is sometimes called, is important to have if you do not have health insurance for you or your family. The worst scenario we see with our clients is where they are injured and have neither health insurance nor med pay coverage. Even where liability is clear and the client is injured from an auto collision, getting treatment can be difficult and delayed because of a lack of health insurance. This circumstance can significantly delay the injured party’s recovery and reduce the value of their claim. Uninsured Motorist. Pays your car’s damages and/or your bodily injury when an auto collision is caused by a driver who doesn’t have liability insurance or who is otherwise an “uninsured”. As stated above, to legally drive in Georgia drivers must have minimum liability insurance so often times victims of auto collision who suffer significant injury must rely on their own Underinsured Motorist to get fully compensated for their injuries. Underinsured Motorist. Pays your car’s damages and/or your bodily injury when an auto collision is caused by someone who has insufficient liability insurance to cover your loss. In essence, Uninsured/underinsured (UM) motorist coverage is insurance that protects you and your family from others not being adequately insured to cover the damages that resulted from the negligence of another. For example, if an at-fault driver is legally driving with the state minimum insurance, of $25,000/$50,000/$25,000 those limits can quickly be exhausted if you or your family member is significantly injured or if multiple people are injured in an auto collision. I believe that UM insurance is the most important insurance that you can purchase to protect your family from the aftermath of an auto collision. Therefore, depending on your financial situation, I would recommend carrying at least $100,000.00 in UM coverage, which is in excess of any liability policy that may be available to protect against unforeseen injuries that are out of your control. Although UM coverage can be great protection from others, there are many different forms of UM coverage offered by insurance companies. Purchasing UM coverage on your auto policy can be confusing and ultimately disappointing in your time of need if you are not familiar with the coverage that you are actually purchasing. So be sure to have your insurance agent fully explain in detail the type UM policy you are purchasing. Also, be aware that if you sign any documents regarding UM on your policy you may be reducing your coverage and not realize it. Finally, be sure you research your insurance company’s philosophy on paying UM claims, unfortunately many times from my experience, those consumers with the big auto insurance companies may find themselves fighting to get what they paid for when they need it the most. If you would like more information on purchasing insurance and the philosophy of your insurance company on properly compromising underinsured motorist claims, please reference the Georgia Insurance Commissioner’s office to research complaints.

Pet Set Pet Care Tip

What You Don’t Want To See in Pet Food By Dixie Popham - Owner, Pet Set Grooming, 3313 Highway 5 Across from Publix, 770.949.0579 If you’re like me, you try and feed your pet the best food you can find and afford. Here are a few things you do not want to see in your pets’ food. Meat by-products, digest. Meat by-products, especially those not specified as a certain kind of meat (chicken, beef, turkey, etc.), contain unsavory ingredients ground into the mix during processing like beaks, feathers, feet, hooves, hair, entrails – even tumors. The exception would be by-products derived from human grade organ meats like liver and kidney. Poor quality, incomplete proteins. These include corn gluten meal,

pets wheat gluten meal, rice protein concentrate and soy protein. Formulas containing corn or soy. Corn is a cheap filler ingredient with no nutritional value. It is also a known allergenic. Soy is estrogenic and can wreak havoc on your dog’s endocrine system. BHT, BHA, ethoxyquin, propyl gallate. These are all artificial preservatives. Ethoxyquin is banned from use in human foods, but is used to preserve the fish meal found in many pet food formulas. You won’t find it on your pet food label because it is added before the fish meal arrives at the manufacturing facility. When considering dog foods containing fish, look for written manufacturer assurance on the label or web site that the fish meal does not contain ethoxyquin. Otherwise, assume that it does or contact the manufacturer directly to inquire.

Thanksgiving Tips

Dr. James E. Kay

By Debra Y. Milton, Four Paws Pet-Sitting Service, 678.838.7297, www.fourpawspetsitting.com Thanksgiving is just around the corner. Please review these holiday safety tips for you and your pets. Turkey and all the trimmings can be very unhealthy for your pet. Remove the temptation for your pet and discard the scraps of your holiday dinner so the pet cannot retrieve them later. Not only can eating spoiled food harm your pet’s long-term health, but eating bones can also cause many potentially life-threatening problems. Spoiling your pet with rich fatty human food can also cause your pet to not want the food you regularly feed him. So, while making plans for Thanksgiving, don’t forget your pets!

sports & fitness Vineyard Streetball Classic brings Tournament to Douglas County

Submitted by the DC Chamber of Commerce Owner Omar Daniel is pleased to announce the opening of Vineyard Streetball Classic, a new philanthropy in Douglas County. Vineyard Streetball Classic, Inc. is a nonprofit serving the Martha’s Vineyard and Metro Atlanta areas to promote exercise, improve, and build basketball court play areas, by hosting annual basketball tournaments and educational programs. Daniel celebrated Vineyard Streetball Classic’s opening on September 19th with a DC Chamber Ribbon Cutting. Since 2002, the Vineyard Streetball Classic, a 3-on-3 basketball tournament, has taken place each year on July 4th weekend at Niantic Park in Oak Bluffs, Martha’s Vineyard. During the annual tournament, students ages 9 to 18 from across the northeast showcase their athletic talents in an environment of positive recreational competition. Each team of three to five players battles through a series of double-elimination rounds with the top

teams in each division receiving trophies at the end of the day. After sustaining a successful program in the north for ten years, Omar decided it was time to bring the organization south. Over the past year, he has worked diligently to establish the organization in Douglas County including obtaining his 501(c)3 status, making Vineyard Streetball Classic a true non-profit organization. DC Chamber President and CEO, Kali Boatright, congratulated Omar on the expansion of the organization. “The DC Chamber is grateful to have you as a member of our community,” commented Boatright. “In every organization that you are involved in, you shine brightly and the Chamber looks forward to supporting Vineyard Streetball Classic and seeing you continue to change the lives of people in Douglasville and Douglas County for the better.” For more information on Vineyard Streetball Classic or to register, visit their website, www.vineyardstreetballclassic.com, or contact Omar at 678.458.5548.

Villa Rica football player This has been an amazing year for 16 year-old Taylor Tidaback, a senior a Villa Rica High School and Douglas County resident. Not is she only the field goal kicker for the varsity football team, but she was also named Homecoming Queen of Villa Rica High School during ceremonies on September 13th. Now, Taylor and the Wildcat football team are starting to get quite a bit of media attention, both locally and nationally. What’s even more amazing about all of this is that Taylor did not begin kicking a football until July of this year – less than two months before the team’s first game. So how did someone who just picked up a football and tried kicking it end up on the varsity football team – especially if that someone is a 16 year-old girl? Her brother Justin, a 9th grade wide receiver on the team, got the ball rolling when he told Coach Frazier that his sister had a really strong leg, and played soccer for the Lady Wildcats. Toward the end of July, while Taylor was at Governor’s Honors program in Valdosta, Villa Rica High School Wildcat Head Coach Chad Frazier contacted her parents, Bruce and Christina, asking if they thought she would be interested in coming out for the team as a kicker. He mentioned that the team did not have a kicker and he was aware that she was an outstanding soccer player and honor student. Bruce said, “My wife and I told Coach Frazier that we would speak to Taylor about the opportunity once the Governor’s Honors program ended. I picked up Taylor from Valdosta State University on a Saturday and we discussed Coach Frazier’s inquiry about if she wanted to try-out as a kicker for the football team. I remember she said, ‘Daddy I have never kicked a football before, but I would love to give it a try.’ The next day (Sunday) Taylor and I went to VRHS to kick some field goals. We used a tape measure as a kicking block. The first time she struck the ball the sound was a solid “THUD!”

also named homecoming queen

BY TIM COLLINS

The ball cleared - not only cleared the cross bar... it landed on the running track which circles the football field. We kept increasing the distance and angle of her kicks, but she kept splitting the uprights each time.” Two days later, Christina drove with Taylor to a summer practice where Coach Frazier asked her to kick some field goals. After about 10 minutes he said to Taylor, “We’d love to have you on the team.” Coach Chad Frazier related, “We got about halfway through the summer and we didn’t really have a kicker. I went to the boys’ soccer team in the spring and I couldn’t get any of those kids to come out. I knew from Honors Night that Taylor was an honors student, and I knew that she played a high level of club soccer, so I felt like she had been in pressure situations. She came out one day and she made good contact. I felt confident she could handle the pressure since both her parents are coaches, and she plays a high level of soccer, so I told her if this was something she wanted to do, she had a spot. She has a great work ethic and all the guys have accepted her. She has such great skill and works at it everyday so the guys respect her. It’s not a gimmick by any means.” In football, she has been nearly perfect. In the opening game against Woodland of Cartersville, she hit both of her field goal attempts, and was a perfect 3 for 3 in extra points. Her 39-yard field goal in that game was only four yards short of the state unofficial record for a female kicker. An attempt at a record setting 45 yard field goal was blocked in the game against E Paulding. For the season, including the scrimmage, she is 4 of 7 in field goal attempts and 14 of 16 extra point attempts (one was blocked). Villa Rica residents since 1998,

Holiday Travel By Tracey Snipes, Travel Escapes, 770.732.9434 It’s the time of year to think about holiday travel. The holidays are a great time of year to travel. Depending on where you go, the weather can be very moderate, or snowbound – whatever you’re looking for. The holiday season has become a time of multi-generational travel; a time for families to gather and celebrate in some very picturesque locations. There are many possibilities available for these activities within driving distance and also some wonderful things just a short flight away. The Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade in New York City is something everyone should experience live. It’s such a spectacular event for the whole family. Children will love the balloons, bands, and the excitement. Adults will enjoy the special performances and the floats. There really is something for the whole family. While in New York, you can also enjoy ice skating in Rockefeller Center, and sightseeing all over the city. The weekend after Thanksgiving is the lighting of the Great Tree at Rockefeller Center and all the window displays at all of the fabulous shops are revealed. How about a ski destination? Imagine the family in a lodge a local, Southeastern ski resort, or maybe up in the mountains of Vermont. What could be more picture-perfect for Christmas? Of course, it will depend on the weather if you’re looking at the local resorts in Georgia, Tennessee or North Carolina. But it shouldn’t be a problem if you travel further North to resorts like Killington, or Smuggler’s Notch in Vermont or out west to Colorado, Utah, Montana or even Canada. When looking for a family-friendly ski resort you want to look at more than just the skiing offered, but also the activities available for those non-skiers, or simply for those non-ski days. Many of the resorts offer zip-lines, mountain coasters, ice skating, sleigh rides, etc. If you’re staying close to home this holiday season, you can still experience some family holiday memories. Many local towns have wonderful candlelight tours, mistletoe markets, festivals of trees, holiday parades and pageants. Lookout Mountain, Callaway Gardens, Pigeon Forge and many other resort towns have Fantasy Lights Festivals throughout the season.

children & education Hatching new experiences at the R.O.O.F.

Community leaders visit local preschools The Junior League of Douglas County had great support from the community, sitting alongside groups of 4-year-olds, reading from a favorite children’s book as part of Georgia’s Pre-K Week. Around the state, attention was turned to the tens of thousands of Georgia’s youngest children in celebration of the important work they are doing to prepare for school success.

The R.O.O.F. (Reflections of Our Finest) Learning Academy Pre-K Program recently hatched eight baby chicks. They started with eight fertilized eggs and kept them in a classroom incubator for 21 days. The children were able to experience the transformation hands on, also viewing the daily changes inside the eggs by video on the classroom iPad. Each child kept a journal of the eggs progression and suggested names for them like Mustard, Coal, Chicken Pox, Kirby, and Chirpy! Even the Pre-K 3 and the after school Program were able to share in this amazing experience that the entire center and their families will surely never forget!

children & education Psychologist Corner Anger Management

By Rebecca S. Blakeman, Ph.D., Licensed Psychologist - Adolescent Child Specialty Services, 4935 Stewart Mill Road, 404.310.1161, rblakemanphd@yahoo.com

“Anger Management” groups are quite popular. Unfortunately, many individuals have completed an “anger management” class (or two or three such programs) still have significant problems “managing” their anger. The reason for this is due in large part to the fact that many programs rely on teaching overly simplistic strategies, without getting to the core of what is maintaining and escalating the anger…one’s thoughts. The key to being able to manage one’s anger is to develop cognitive or thinking strategies. Anger may be triggered by the actions of others, but it is fueled by one’s own thinking. Picture two people walking down a crowded hallway. Someone bumps them. One person thinks, “Man it’s really crowded in here today. I’m glad I’m almost to my office.” The second person thinks, “That idiot just hit me on purpose. Who does he think he is? He should know he can’t mess with me. I’ll show him what happens when he messes with me.” Clearly, one of these walkers is more upset than the other, even though they both had the same experience of someone bumping into them. The way they defined the situation (e.g., crowded hallway vs. deliberate hit) determined whether they became upset. To be truly effective, anger management programs must teach individuals how to change their thinking in situations, so they do not become angry when it is not necessary. There are some times, however, when it is appropriate to be angry, and effective anger management programs should teach individuals how to control their thinking in order to minimize the likelihood of responding in a manner that is likely to have negative consequences. Picture two drivers getting rearended by a driver who was talking on a cell-phone and not paying attention. Both drivers may think, “I can’t believe they hit me! This is going to cost me a fortune! I hate it when people talk on the phone when they’re driving. What an idiot!” But the driver who is then able to take a few slow, relaxing breaths and begin to focus on managing his/her thoughts is most likely to stay in control of his/her behavior. In this situation, it would be important for the driver to deliberately focus his/her thoughts on staying calm and focusing on the positives. “Thank goodness I am not hurt. Insurance will cover this because it was not my fault. The other driver will probably get a ticket for not paying attention and driving so close. A car is just a car…my health and safety are most important. I can tell the other driver is really upset, and I know they did not plan on hitting my car. This is a big inconvenience, but it will be OK.” Learning to manage one’s thoughts takes practice. If it is difficult for you or a loved one to manage their anger, it may be helpful to contact a psychologist or counselor who can teach you/them cognitive strategies for staying in calm.

medical directory & guide Six Ways to Lower Your Blood Pressure

Free Medical Clinic Opens in Douglas County

By Dr. Ather, family medicine physician with Villa Rica Family Medicine. www.VillaRicaFamilyMedicine.org, 770.456.3790 Your blood pressure isn’t just a reading at your doctor’s office. It can predict your risk for heart attack, heart failure or stroke. Simply put, the higher your blood pressure, the higher your risk for these and other deadly diseases. “If you are age 35 or older, it’s extremely important to have your blood pressure checked regularly,” said Urooj Ather, MD, a family medicine physician with Villa Rica Family Medicine, part of Tanner Medical Group. “Even if you don’t have hypertension (or high blood pressure) yet, you may have prehypertension.” Blood pressure is the force of blood against your artery walls. When it stays high over time—at a level of 140/90 mmHg or higher—it’s known as

Executive Director Frank Smith is pleased to announce the opening of The CarePlace, Douglas County’s free community health center. Smith, along with supporters, local elected officials and The CarePlace Board of Directors celebrated the opening of their location on October 9th with a DC Chamber Ribbon Cutting.

provided. Currently The CarePlace is only open on Saturday mornings from 8am to noon. Walk-ins are not accepted. Patients must be qualified in advance through one of two locations: Cobb & Douglas Public Health Department or The Pantry. Many members of the community understand the value of a free healthcare clinic. “As our economy and many of our neighbors continue to struggle back to their feet, The CarePlace in Douglas County has opened to serve the health needs of many who have nowhere else to turn,” said Dr. Jack Kennedy. Kennedy, a district health director with Cobb & Douglas Public Health continued, “It is my hope and prayer that The CarePlace will become a healthcare home for many who cannot access our country’s overburdened health system.” Other members of the community have shown their support through donations of medical services, medical equipment, monetary donations and volunteer efforts. Frank Smith, Executive Director of The CarePlace, said he is “extremely grateful for the support of WellStar Douglas Hospital, Kaiser Permanente, The Church at Chapelhill, Ephesus Baptist Church, Crossroads Church and GreyStone Power.” Smith spearheaded the opening of the clinic after hearing countless comments during his years at the helm of the local food bank, The Pantry. Week after week, he would hear people express their thanks for the free food so they would not have to choose between feeding their families and going to the doctor.

By Karma Mehta, PA-C, Advanced Dermatology, 6043 Prestley Mill Road, 770.739.7546, www.skinangel.com Have you ever had a bump that looks a little funny that never went away? That’s usually the story we hear about everyday at our practice. Most of these bumps can be anything, from a simple skin tag to a melanoma (a type of skin cancer). A dermatologist or a dermatology physician’s assistant is a trained provider who treats patients with skin conditions ranging from rashes, such as eczema, acne, psoriasis, skin cancer, and many others. Most people who have a rash start by going to their primary physician before going to a dermatologist. A dermatologist can perform biopsies, which is a procedure to identify if a rash is fungus, bacterial, or something else. Acne is a skin condition that is caused by hormones, genetics, or stress. Accurate information about acne can be scarce; therefore seeing a dermatologist can be beneficial for proper management and care of this condition. Psoriasis is an autoimmune condition where the skin is flaky and red that can be inherited and is not curable. There are several treatments which a dermatologist is able to provide depending on how severe the condition is. It’s important to see a dermatologist for psoriasis because the treatments given to a patient must be monitored in order to give the best possible care. Has anyone in your family had some type of skin cancer? Have you ever had a blistering sunburn? Do you or have you been to the tanning bed on a regular basis? Do you have multiple moles? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you should have a full body exam. This is important because irregular moles can lead to a melanoma. Melanoma is a dangerous type of skin cancer that can eventually lead to death because it’s very aggressive once you have it. If a melanoma is caught and treated early then it may be curable, if not, the cancer can spread to other parts of the body and possibly be fatal. There are several other types of skin cancers (Squamous cell carcinoma and Basal cell carcinoma) that most patients tell us looks like ‘a tiny pimple that won’t go away’ and have turned out to be one of these skin cancers. These types of cancers could spread under the skin if not caught early and potentially be deadly as well. Dermatologists are also known for providing cosmetic procedures to enhance beauty as well. Botox, Restylene (a filler to add volume and fullness), chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and laser hair removal are all services that dermatologists are certified to provide. The part that makes them stand out against most spas is that they provide proper medical care necessary after certain treatments. In the state of Georgia, many insurances don’t require prior authorizations for you to see a dermatologist. So, next time before going to a primary care physician for that rash or funny bump, call a dermatologist to save yourself unnecessary visits.

Successful companies measure themselves. Without measurement, there would be no controls; without controls, there would be no improvement. Generally speaking, measuring business success factors is a good thing. But let me warn you, measuring is not always good. 1. When we hold on to measures too long and they no longer match our goals and objectives, our employees and partners will become confused about what’s important. 2. When we misrepresent our measures to make ourselves and others more comfortable or impressed, we expose a lack of integrity – jeopardizing

our company’s viability in the marketplace. 3. When we over-focus on one area (or measure the wrong thing) to the detriment of others, we lose sight of all that is important and risk becoming imbalanced in our company performance and production. 4. When our measures become our motivators and we lose what got us in the business in the first place, we risk losing the very life of our company. This last item is the most damaging and should be avoided at all cost. Like the athlete that pushes too hard for just one more hundredth of a second, pulls a hamstring and misses the big race, companies (and people) can become unhealthy if measures take precedent over the desire to create value in a God honoring way. Vision and mission will always be more powerful motivators than measurements. Let’s use our tools wisely. Marketplace Ministry Tip: Evaluate the measures you are using for your company, your personal/family life and your spiritual journey. Evaluate the purpose of your measures. Are they to motivate, or measure progress? Make the necessary adjustments. Contact me for more information at rob@ inlightconsulting.com.

DC Chamber Holds Ribbon Cutting to Commemorate McIntosh Academy’s New Name Owner Jennifer Blair is pleased to announce that Joanne’s Daycare is operating under a new name, McIntosh Academy. Jennifer, her staff, family, and students celebrated commemorated the special occasion on September 23rd with a DC Chamber Ribbon Cutting. McIntosh Academy is located at 1558 McIntosh Road in Douglasville. Formerly Joanne’s Daycare, McIntosh Academy provides quality childcare education for children ages six weeks to twelve in a warm and loving atmosphere. Children learn and develop through state approved curriculums and activities tailored to their individual needs. Jennifer’s mother opened the daycare in 1980 when she was not pleased with the care her two daughters were receiving at their childcare provider. In 2006 Jennifer’s mother passed away and she and her sister Melissa continued the legacy in their mother’s honor and eight years later it continues to be one of the premier childcare providers in the county.

“Even though it was a tough decision to change the name, I am excited about the change McIntosh Academy and look forward to continuing to grow and serve the children that have become like family to me and my staff for many years to come,” commented Blair. DC Chamber President and CEO, Kali Boatright, congratulated Jennifer on the name change. “The DC Chamber is grateful to have you as a member of our community,” commented Boatright. “I am certain that while the name has changed, the quality of service and the passion you and your staff have for your students, that the legacy you have created in your mother’s honor will continue live on for many years and we look forward to being here to support McIntosh Academy!” Commission Chairman Tom Worthan was also present at the Ribbon Cutting and offered his congratulatory remarks.

Church Happenings Edna Wright named new president of National Quartet Convention

Southern gospel music made history at the National Quartet Convention when Edna Wright of Villa Rica, was elected as the first woman President of the Southern Gospel Promoters Association. Edna began her career as a gospel music promoter when she partnered with a legend in the gospel music industry, Eddie Crook of The Eddie Crook Company in Nashville. Mr. Crook, with 30 years experience in recording and promoting gospel artists, is also an accomplished musician and has accompanied many well-known gospel artists on piano. His leadership in the music industry has helped many artists succeed in reaching the top of the charts. The West Georgia Gospel Convention was the first of their events to be promoted in this area. In August of each year 12 to 15 gospel artists come together for two days of gospel singing and Christian comedy entertainment. Since that time Edna began her own promotions company - “Gospel Gold Music Connection”.

DOUGLASVILLE | BREMEN

This year she began a new chapter including promoting the heritage of Villa Rica’s history of ‘Georgia’s Forgotten Gold Mines’ as she presented GospelFest. It featured 12 gospel artists that performed at The Mill Amphitheater on August 31. GospelFest also included Christian comedy entertainment intermingled into the performances. Edna plans on making this an annual event that will also include a chili cook-off and dessert bake-off with trophies to be awarded to the winners. The 2014 date has already been scheduled for October 18. For the past five years Edna has coordinated gospel music concerts and Christian entertainment events in the Gatlinburg, Tennessee area. This year, Smokey Mountain Jubilee is scheduled for December 5, 6, and 7 at the River Terrace Resort & Convention Center. Smokey Mountain Jubilee is an annual event featuring three fun-filled days and nights of gospel music and Christian comedy entertainment. It features the Gospel Gold Artist of the Year Award Ceremony and Christmas Showcase Spectacular. It also includes a special treat for the ladies with a women’s conference. Edna is married to Reverend James C. Wright, pastor of Redemption Christian Center in Villa Rica. Before pastoring, James, Edna and their daughter Glenda Wright traveled throughout the United States and five different countries singing and ministering as The Wright Family. Their accomplishments include many songs nationally released to gospel radio, with seven of those listed in the Top 40 of The Singing News charts. They have had the privilege to sing during the Harvest Celebration at Dollywood in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee for the past three years.

2 Reasons to paint before moving into your new home.

Reason #1. It’s easy now. Interior painting is a very simple project – and not at all physically demanding -- when you can move freely within a room. Why wait till later when you may have to move heavy furniture from side to side, or work around big items, to do your painting? Reason #2. It saves time. Painting can take a lot longer when you have to cover and uncover things, move them back and forth, and take down and re-hang artwork. It’s better to paint just before moving and short-circuit these time-consuming and unproductive steps. Courtesy of Paint Quality Institute, Debbie Zimmerman, www.paintquality.com.

West Georgia Cornhole opens to serve area residents By Dylan Collins

add-on is the built in scoreboard, so if your shady cousin comes by for Thanksgiving, he cannot claim he has more points than he does. They also do custom designs and are great at working with a budget. Brandon, the owner said, “We can do anything! You dream, we design.” The games take around three weeks to make and are made of high quality materials. They submit a sample proof that you can review and then make any changes you need to before it is produced. You can put any design that you like on your custom-made cornhole set. We are having our News & Views logo placed on ours. Shipping is available to any of the lower 48 states for a flat rate of $40, for those who may want to ship the item as a one-of-a-kind Christmas gift. But, you can pick it up locally if the set is for you, or if you want to ship it yourself. West Georgia Cornhole is currently located in Temple, and is moving to a bigger production facility in Winston in November. They can be reached at 770.265.8466 and you can check them
