CHECK OUT OUR ANNUAL HOLIDAY GUIDE - PAGES 45 - 53 Photography by Erin Bentley (left), Andy Petty (top right), Shayla Hunter (bottom right)

please see the NEW Patient OFFER on pg. 5


For some strange reason, it seems relatively easy for our society to forget about Jesus. It makes no sense, but it appears to be true. When you consider the Merry Xmas references and the subtle change from Christmas Holiday to The Holiday Season, maybe the forgetfulness is on purpose. C-h-r-i-s-t, 6 letters replaced with 1 X. It took 1 stripe to cleanse the world of sin, and now that world dismisses 5 letters and a flawless life for expedience? We should celebrate the Savior, not tolerate Him. Christians should get back to the house of God. I know there are hypocrites in church, but they are at work too, but the people boycotting church still go to work. Oh, it’s that money thing, well it ought to be that Jesus thing. After all, He provided the job, the skill to do the job and the blessing the income provides. And oh yeah, He also provided the power of His forgiveness, an available tool for each Believer. Through forgiveness, the hypocrites can be forgiven. The church should celebrate Jesus more than on December 25th, but throughout the entire year. Remember, He is coming back! And He does want us to be ready for His return. One of the best ways to prepare for Christ’s return is to think about how our actions correspond to His word. For example, when we walk in pretense, truth is denied its power to liberate. In other words, a Christian by confession should look like Jesus in reflection. His perfection is given to us, therefore our righteousness is not in play. His love is extended to us, therefore, our doing it just right does not count. Until we get free from the shackles of religious teaching, we will not be able to truly celebrate. Our celebration of Jesus’ greatness should actually come easy in the light of His accomplishments. As the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, we are protected from all enemies. As the Lamb of God, our sins are forgiven. As the Wonderful-Counselor, we marvel at His works and benefit from His wisdom. As the Prince of Peace, our lives can finally settle down despite the opposition. How could we possibly forget Jesus when He is all of that? The answer is quite simple. We get so distracted by the issues we think about, that we forget that He is the answer to our problems. Celebrating Jesus should be easy! He loves our soul, took our punishment, liberated us from Satan who hates us and left us in charge of the decision whether to accept or reject His sacrifice. This is why praise should be easy, not because the music is good, but because He is good. This is why worship should be normal to ALL Christians, because our older Brother laid down His perfect life for imperfect us. The ease with which we give thanks, honor and pay homage to Him, should be so strong that the “X’s” which replaced His name at Christmas, now “X” out the desires we have that displease Him. It’s easy to celebrate Jesus when we simply think, which leads me to believe some of us just don’t think, right. Whatever we think about most, grows. If Christ is not thought about often, something else is growing in us. If we want 2013 to be better than 2012, we will have to change what we think about. One way to accomplish this is to pray in the Spirit for one hour

a day. Find the gaps in your day and pray. Pray on your way to or from work. Pray first thing in the morning, or at lunch. This level of intimacy will increase our interest in the things that please Him. Consistently reading the Word has a similar effect. Either way, let’s think, pray and celebrate our Lord and Savior. Let’s think about Him more today that we did yesterday, and progressively each day until He dominates our thinking. Once Jesus occupies the highest place, our lives will change, our life will improve and our Celebration will be without end! This Christmas, let’s Celebrate Jesus! See you at church!

Professional Pool Players Own and Operate Stix Bar & Grill in Villa Rica Did you know that three of the top 10 women’s billiards players in the world live in Villa Rica? That’s right, professional pool players Monica Webb (top left), Helena Thornfeldt (top middle) and Line Kjorsvik (top right) from Norway can be found in Villa Rica running their 6,000-square-foot Stix Bar & Grill, when they are not traveling the world playing in the Women’s Professional Billiard Association’s Classic Tour. You have probably seen them on ESPN competing to bring national and world titles to Georgia. Villa Rica native and Lithia Springs High School graduate Monica Webb and Sweden native Helena Thornfeldt dreamed for many years of combining their passion for pool with a place where everyone from all walks of life could hang out in a safe, relaxed and comfortable atmosphere. In early 2008, Webb and Thornfeldt began looking for the right space for their dream business project. They began to purchase TVs, kitchen and bar equipment and gather the sports memorabilia collected by them over the years of their career. They bought booths, stools and anything else they could find to keep their project within budget. “It was really tedious,” said Webb, “But it was the best way to get good prices on equipment and furniture, and we saved a ton of money.” As stars on the Women’s Professional Billiard Association’s Classic Tour, Webb and Thornfeldt had visited more than their fair share of billiard clubs across the country. They knew what they liked, and what they didn’t. They saw successful clubs, and they saw clubs that were not operated or managed very well. “Whenever we were in another room, we talked to the owners,” said Webb, the WPBA’s #1 ranked player at the time. “We asked a lot of questions about overhead and keeping costs down. We got tours, walked their kitchens, checked out their bars, studied the lay-

outs and took lots of notes. We called everyone we knew for advice. We didn’t want to make any mistakes.” Stix opened in 2009 and it features ten Diamond Professional tables. Bar counters interwoven in the playing area were custom built to match the pool tables. Not surprisingly, Webb and Thornfeldt run APA leagues on the billiards side of STIX as well as a restaurant and sports bar haven with large TVs everywhere. Pool is only part of the package at Stix. The custom bar seats 35 and has 15 taps, and the room boasts 13 flat screen TVs, as well as a large projection TV. Stix also offers live music on weekends. The room is decorated with numerous pool artist Linda Pault’s RT9 paintings, as well as blown-up pool photos. Stix also features a 900-square-foot kitchen complete with a pizza oven. Thornfeldt oversees the kitchen, which serves an array of menu items with weekly specials from her own personal recipe book which reflects her culinary training back home in Sweden. “The business and keeping up with our ranking here in America and tours world-wide can be exhausting, so we brought in Line Kjorsvik to focus on giving pool lessons and help to continue to build interest in our APA leagues and pool in general within our community. She has been a huge help with that and it’s great for me to train with someone with her experience and a degree in Sports Psychology. I need all the help with the mental stuff I can get!” laughs Monica. When all was said and done, this combination equaled a success awarding them the third best new poolroom in the world by Billiards Digest Magazine. It proudly sits in our area of West Georgia. “If you get into what you know and love, it’s hard to go wrong,” concluded Thornfeldt.

RESTAURANT REVIEW

By Sheila Massey, Ladies of Life on the Word Church The Ladies of Life on the Word Church hold their monthly meetings at one of the local restaurants in the Carrollton, Villa Rica and even in Douglasville areas. Our meetings are held the first Thursday of each month. We want to give a review of the restaurant we visited along with the topic we discussed that night. On Thursday, October 4th at 7 o’clock we met at The Olive Tree Restaurant in Villa Rica. We met the greeter who was very pleasant, that seated us at table suitable for our party. As everyone arrived we looked over the menu that was moderately priced. We each gave our order for tea or water to the very pleasant waitress. She brought our drinks, rolls and salad then took our food orders. We prayed before we ate the salad and rolls. Everyone enjoyed the rolls. They were fresh and well seasoned with garlic butter. The salad came in large bowls - one with the house dressing and the other with a house made ranch dressing. They both were very good. The meals of pasta, lasagna and manicotti arrived. Everyone enjoyed their meals as we discussed the importance of forgiveness. Each one gave their views of the importance to forgive, giving examples from the scriptures. We discussed that if we walk in the love of God, when someone does something to us to hurt us, God takes that offense personally. We are to pray for that person that God will help that individual realize how much they hurt us and ask God to help us forgive. We discussed that if this is a repeated offense by the same individual, then we can still forgive, we don’t have to put our self in that place to be hurt again by continuing to associate with them. We had a very pleasant evening as we had serious moments and fun moments. We did a lot of laughing and had a good time. Follow the Life on the Word Church Ladies as we decide were we will meet next month. The Olive Tree Restaurant is located at 150 Stone Street.

Six Steps to Surviving Holiday Weight Gain By Leslie Austin. Leslie has been in the fitness industry for 16 years as a Personal Trainer and Fitness Instructor. She is currently employed with Gold’s Gym in Douglasville. You can reach her at LesAus10@aol.com

How can you try to maintain your weight and heart-health during such a tempting time? Here are six tips to surviving the holiday hoop-la this season and seasons to come. 1. Get moving One of the most effective ways to maintain or lose body weight is to engage in regular, sustained exercise. To burn off those extra calories, kick up your exercise. If you exercise for 30 minutes a day, increase it to 45 minutes. If you exercise three times a week, move it up to five times a week. 2. Aim for seven-a-day Making sure you eat seven or more servings of fruits and vegetables each day is a great way to help fill-up your stomach but not your calorie level. When compared to other snack foods like chips, crackers and cookies, gram for gram, fruits and vegetables contain fewer calories and tons more nutrients. 3. Control the risk for temptation Controlling even the slightest chance of coming in contact with ‘tempting’ foods is one way to effectively reduce your intake. While you won’t be able to control all situations, focus on the many ones you can. For example, do you keep candy or cookies at your desk or workspace? Do you frequent the dining room table or pantry where you store all your holiday goodies? Make a mental note of tempting places and try to control them. 4. Limit to one-a-day While you can’t control every situation, you can control how much food goes into your mouth. If you are constantly bombarded with holiday parties and displays of desserts or candies you can still effectively help prevent overeating and weight gain. One way is the one-a-day method. Allow yourself one small serving of a cookie or piece of candy each day during the holiday season. Remember that you may have to compensate for it later in the day by reducing your total caloric intake or by burning a few extra calories. 5. Always plan ahead – Never go to a party hungry Before you go to a holiday party, eat a healthy snack such as a serving of your favorite fruit, fat-free yogurt or a low-fat, whole grain granola bar. When you arrive at the party, you won’t be craving hors d’oeuvres. 6. Say no politely Many times you feel forced to eat foods because people keep putting it in front of you. Learn to say no politely, such as “No thank you, I’ve had enough. Everything was delicious” or “I couldn’t eat another bite. Everything tasted wonderful”.

Personal Trainers Corner Does Your Hair Need an Intervention? By Audrey Davis-Sivasothy, www.haircarerehab.com Four-step rehab for damaged hair:

1. Chelating your hair: The first step in detoxing hair is the use of chelating shampoo, which is typically clear and lifts stubborn buildup from products and hard water. 2. Deep conditioning your hair: After chelating, deep condition. This should be done every seven to 10 days using moisturizing conditioners such as instant and cream-rinse, deep conditioners, protein treatments or leave-in conditioners. 3. Moisturizing your hair: This step adds a layer of leave-on protection. You can use either leave-in conditioner or a dedicated moisturizing product, or both. For thick, dry or curly hair, this step hydrates and adds “slip.” For fine or oily hair, these products should detangle strands while encouraging volume. 4. Sealing your hair: This is the last major step in your hair intervention. Sealing with an oil or butter product locks in moisture and solidifies the gains of rehab. It smoothes out the cuticle and keeps hair moisturized for a longer period. Always use sealant on slightly dampened or misted hair.

Photography Tip of the Month hristmas. The actual Christmas meal or party is obviously the best part of the day, but there are other photographic opportunities, particularly in the preparations stages of the day. Those include: food preparation, putting up decorations, wrapping gifts, kids throwing a tantrum while getting dressed in their Christmas outfits, setting the table. The shots before the event starts are often great because they show everything at its best before all of the hustle and bustle of the day begins.

SENIOR LIVING Nursing Homes & the Holidays

The holidays arrive with more haste each year it seems, and with it, the “busy” season. Many of you, especially those

It has been my observation through my years working in long-term care that one important thing residents miss is being “busy”. Think about it. When you are busy, it means you have lots to do and if there is a lot to do, then you must be an important part of something. What if you had nothing to do? What if you were physically unable to do so much as sweep a floor? Would you feel needed or important? This is what residents in a care setting go through every day. Residents look back over their lives and remember the days when they, too were busy and hectic and had meals to cook or a job to go to every day and children to raise at home. They were an essential part of their community, their churches, and their civic organizations. They had stuff to do! In a nursing facility, often the focus of the Activity Department is on providing entertainment for residents, and that is a fine idea in general. However, most residents spent their entire lives working, with formal entertainment as a minor bonus. What the elderly need is to feel important, needed. Families can do this by including

the elderly in plans for the future, giving them small tasks to do, such as compiling a Christmas card list or a shopping list. Ask for recipes or cooking advice. Have children and grandchildren call them on the phone or visit to ask for advice about school or friendships. Another way to make the elderly feel important and needed is to build time into your schedule to visit. You can take the elderly person out for a meal or just a ride through the country to see the sights. Have them point out landmarks and relay how the landscape has changed through the years. Have schoolchildren interview them for a project, either for a real grade or just for fun. Also, send mail. Mail is a small, inexpensive way to brighten a day and to make someone feel remembered and important. You can check with the Activities Department and see what projects may be coming up that you might could volunteer a little time or materials to help with.

Fitzpatrick Insurance Agency opens in Villa Rica Fitzpatrick Insurance Agency, located at 1823 Carrollton Villa Rica Highway, opened its doors for business and began serving customers for the first time on November 1st. It may have been their first day as Fitzpatrick Insurance, but it is not their first time serving residents of West Georgia. Owner/agent Thom Fitzpatrick has been a licensed insurance agent in the West Georgia area since 1988. Sales and service specialist Janet Fitzpatrick Ray has been a licensed insurance agent since 1989. Owner Thom Fitzpatrick describes his new agency as a local customer oriented agency. He states, “We are a part of the community. We live in Carroll County, worship in Carroll County, educated our children in Carroll County. In short, our lives are in Carroll County.” He went on to say, “We care about what happens here and want the best for our neighbors. We have extensive knowledge of the West Georgia area having been in the insurance industry here for over 20 years. We represent many fine companies so that coverage can be tailored to the best fit for you, not the insurance company. It is our pledge to always put our customers first.”

5 Ways to Save Money This Christmas 1. Make a list, and narrow it down. Who do you have to buy presents for? Make a list, because without it you will have a hard time creating a budget. Only put the essential people on it. Now see if you can narrow it down a bit. 2. Set a budget, and stick to it. How much can you afford to spend on Christmas this year, realistically? Don’t put your Christmas shopping on your credit card if possible - just spend what you can find within your regular budget or in savings (though it’s not a good idea to deplete your savings just for gifts). 3. Do an exchange. This can drastically reduce costs, especially if you have a large family or group of friends or coworkers. Instead of buying something for everyone, you just have to buy one gift.

Fitzpatrick Insurance offers an extensive line of auto and home insur-

4. Make your own gifts. You could make anything — picture frames,

commercial auto, life insurance, boat insurance, condo insurance, motorcycle insurance and renters insurance.

Help Older Parents Avoid Financial “Scams” Here’s a disturbing statistic: One out of every five Americans over the age of 65 has been victimized by a financial scheme, according to the Investor Protection Trust, a nonprofit organization devoted to investor education. If your parents are in this age group, should you be concerned? And can you help them avoid being “scammed” so that they maintain control over their finances? The answer to the first question is “yes” — you should be concerned. Of course, as the numbers above show, most aging Americans are not being swindled, which suggests they can take of themselves quite well. Still, it’s no secret that many fraud schemes target seniors because of their concentrated wealth and in many cases, trusting nature. And as much as you’d like to think otherwise, your parents could be susceptible to rip-off artists. Fortunately, in regard to the second question above, you can indeed take steps to help prevent your parents from being fleeced. Here are a few suggestions: • Observe their behavior. If you live close to your parents, listen

probably “spam” these without a moment’s thought — and you should urge your parents to do the same. Remind them that any offer that sounds “too good to be true” is, without question, neither “good” nor “true.” • Encourage them to further their financial education. Law enforcement agencies, health care professionals and reputable financial services providers all offer personal financial management programs designed specifically for seniors. Look for these types of programs in your area, encourage your parents to attend — and even consider going with them. • Become familiar with their financial situation. Having a serious discussion with your parents about their finances may not be easy — but it’s important. The more you know about their investments, retirement accounts and estate plans, the better prepared you’ll be to respond helpfully if they mention an action they’re considering taking that, to you, just doesn’t sound appropriate. • Suggest professional help. If your parents are already working with a qualified financial professional, they’re probably less likely to be victimized by fraud than if they were managing their finances on their own. And it’s a good idea for you to know their financial advisor, and for him or her to know you, as you may well be involved in your parents’ legacy plan-

and by checking in with other family members or friends who have occasion to see your parents. • Urge them to watch out for suspicious e-mails.

It’s entirely possible that your parents won’t need any assistance in avoiding financial scams. But, just in case, be prepared to act on the above suggestions. Your intervention could help preserve your parent’s financial independence. This article was written by Edward Jones for use by your local Edward Jones Financial Advisor.

God’s Goodness “Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.” Psalm 107:1 (NIV) As we near the holiday season, we need to take time to remember that we celebrate Christmas because of God’s goodness. He sent his son so that we could experience His love forever. That is truly a reason to be thankful this Christmas. One way we can manifest the love of God to others is with random acts of kindness. My daughter received a random act of kindness the other day at the airport. She was flying to Dallas to be a part of her best friend’s engagement. She arrived at the airport thinking she was an hour early only to find out she looked at her return time instead of her departure time. Oops! She had missed her flight by ten minutes. As she realized her error her mouth dropped open and her stomach hit the floor. The agent at the counter must have realized her shock and distress and booked her on the next flight. The agent was kind and helpful. The best part is she is from Villa Rica! Her random act of kindness was a blessing to me. The Christmas season is a great time to shine the light of Christ through random acts of kindness! Wishing you a blessed Christmas. Remember to be a blessing to someone as well.

~Missy

VILLA RICA WILDCATS Final thoughts on the 2012 season from Villa Rica Head Coach Mike Falleur We knew going into the 2012 football season that there would be many challenges. The fact that our senior and junior classes were small in numbers meant that a lot of younger players were going to have to step up and play on Fridays with very little Varsity experience. Another of these challenges started with scrimmages. Injuries are a part of football, but it’s even worse when your depth is so thin and forces those young players to have to play all the time. I am proud of our football team. They were very competitive and fought hard in every football game. Had we been able to make a couple of key plays in the Hiram and Rome games, this young football team would have made it to the playoffs. As we look toward the 2013 football season I see a team that has great potential, one that should be in the hunt for a region title and a state play-off berth. Our job as coaches is to make sure these players are working hard in the classroom as well as in the weight room and preparing themselves for next year. It will be here before you know it. Let’s get ready for a great year of Wildcat Football in 2013!

tries, a ministry for churches and children’s ministry. kerrydrive5@yahoo.com

When my husband and I were first married, going “home for the holidays” meant packing up and heading back to Pennsylvania. Family, friends, food, holiday traditions and the promise of snow called

Sharing these things we knew and loved with him were wonderful. As he got a little older, “home for the holidays” started to mean something different to us. It was time to start some new traditions with him at our home, some of which were reminiscent of traditions from when we were kids. A couple times, we went home to Pennsylvania the week after Christmas and then for several years, we made Thanksgiving the holiday we traveled up north to celebrate. This was the best of both worlds for a while. We still went home for a holiday and had holiday traditions here in Georgia too. Over the next few years, as our son grew, his involvement in Scouts and sports, as well as his homeschooling, took up more time and required a deeper commitment on our part. It became more and more difficult to carve out time to make the long drive to Pennsylvania for Thanksgiving. Flying there and renting a car were stressful and expensive. (It is the “most traveled” holiday.) So “home for the holidays” now meant that we would be staying at our home for the whole holiday season. Being at our own home didn’t have that same nostalgic ring that pulls at the heartstrings, but we slowly developed more and more of our own traditions – things that I look forward to each Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year. Some are little, silly things. Others are more meaningful. Sometimes it’s more the attitude and the atmosphere, than it is an action. These transitions over the years weren’t always easy. My husband and I didn’t always agree and compromises had to be made. There were things we missed. Sometimes things simply didn’t live up to our expectations and we were disappointed. Just as I have to rely on God through all of life’s changes, I need to look to Him for guidance and peace as our “home for the holidays” concept evolves…and we’re not done yet. As I think ahead to our son’s teenage years, I want our home and family to be a place where he wants to be “home for the holidays”. I want the things we do, to draw from our past, build on the traditions we’ve developed as a family and also incorporate things that are important to him. I ask God to help me remember and cherish the traditions and the holidays of the past. I rest in His presence so I can relax, embrace and enjoy the moments of each holiday season as they happen. I pray He will prepare my heart and mind for the transitions that will occur, as our “home for the holidays” concept continues to change.

Wedding Planning During the Holidays By Beverly Clements, The Centre at Arbor Connection, 678.213.3195, www.thearborconnection.com

I have read many articles about brides that are planning their weddings during the holiday season. Finding a theme or color scheme is easy. You can also save money on decorations since most locations are already decorated for the season. But, let’s talk about those brides that are getting married in January, February, and March. If you are one of those brides, you are probably already dreading this holiday season. You are wondering how to juggle everything. Let’s start with some planning and organizing tips. 1. Buy a calendar! I know you have a calendar app on your phone, you can use it too, but you need a calendar that will allow you to see all of the events in front of you at one time. 2. Make a list of your entire wedding to do’s. 3. Make a list of all of your family holiday gatherings. Don’t forget your fiancé’s family. 4. Make a list of your work events.

5. Make a list of your church and social events (holiday parties, special services, volunteering, and etc). For the events that you have dates and times for, go ahead and put those in your calendar. If you have a set work schedule, put that in your calendar too. The next item to go into your calendar is a date night. This is one night a week that is just about you and your fiancé. This will help keep your relationship in focus when things start to get hectic. Now it is time to start inserting the wedding planning items in to your calendar. Look at your checklist - what needs to be done first? Have you booked all of your vendors? Have you made your guest list? Have you printed or sent out your invitations? What are your DIY projects? Do you have vendor meetings that need to be made? Have you picked out your ceremony and reception music? Have you done your tastings for your dinner and cake? Once you have looked at your list of to-dos, you need to prioritize them. Some items can wait until after the holidays, unless you are getting married at the beginning of 2012. Now look at the rest of the list find the items that need to be done in the next two months. Make a schedule and give yourself goals.

DIRECTORY & GUIDE Getting Back in Motion After a Joint Operation By Dr. Colpini, Tanner Ortho and Spine, www.TannerOrtho.org. People who have any type of surgery may worry about getting back into shape. “Your surgeon can tell you what you should be able to do in the first days, weeks and months following your operation,” said Gregory Slappey, MD, a board-certified orthopedic surgeon with Carrollton Orthopaedic Clinic. “However, here are some basic recommendations you can expect for returning to your routine following knee or shoulder surgery.” Total Knee Replacement. If you’ve had your knee replaced, your surgeon will likely recommend you start exercising as soon as you can. The goal: to restore your mobility and strength, with a gradual return to everyday activities and exercise. “During your early recovery, your physical therapist may suggest you exercise 20 to 30 minutes two or three times a day in addition to taking a 30-minute walk,” said Anthony Colpini, MD, a board-certified orthopedic

surgeon with Carrollton Orthopaedic Clinic. “You may be asked to do straight leg raises, quadriceps sets, knee-straightening exercises and bed-supported knee bends.” Shoulder Surgery. Regular exercise following surgery can help restore normal shoulder motion and flexibility and aid a gradual return to your everyday routine. Your orthopedic surgeon may suggest you exercise ten to 15 minutes two or three times a day during your recovery. Depending on the type of surgery, your doctor or therapist may recommend circular pendulum, shoulder flexion, supported shoulder rotation or shoulder internal rotation exercises. Dr. Colpini cautions that recovery from an orthopedic procedure is not instant and can take weeks and even months to regain strength and range of motion. “Remember, getting back to your normal routine takes time,” he said. “Following your doctor’s orders and being patient are key steps. However, with time and effort, you’ll find yourself much more able to do what you were not able to do before the procedure.”

HealthGrades: Tanner Number 1 in Georgia for Overall Orthopedic Services For the fourth consecutive year, Tanner Ortho and Spine Center at Tanner Medical Center/Carrollton is ranked number one in Georgia for overall orthopedic services by HealthGrades, the leading provider of information to help consumers make an informed decision about a physician or hospital. The recognition is part of new findings released in American Hospital Quality Outcomes 2013: Healthgrades Report to the Nation, which evaluates the performance of approximately 4,500 hospitals nationwide across nearly 30 procedures and conditions. A five-star quality measurement indicates that Tanner Health Carrollton’s clinical performance is better than expected. Tanner Ortho and Spine Center has earned five-star ratings for: • Overall orthopedic services for six years in a row (2008-2013) • Joint replacement for five years in a row (2009-2013) • Spine surgery for six years in a row (2008-2013) • Total knee replacement for five years in a row (2009-2013) • Total hip replacement for two years in a row (2012-2013) • Hip fracture treatment for nine years in a row (2005-2013) • Back and neck surgery six years in a row (2008-2013) Tanner also has earned HealthGrades’ Orthopedic Surgery Excellence Award for the sixth consecutive year. The 2013 performance outcomes are now available at www.healthgrades.com. “This is the product of the hard work that has been done by our staff at all levels of our organization, as well as the skill and diligence of our medical staff,” said Loy Howard, president and CEO of Tanner Health System. “Ensuring successful outcomes is how we earn the trust of our patients. This gives our patients the assurance that, at Tanner, they’re going to get the best possible care.” Tanner has been no stranger to accolades from HealthGrades. Both Tanner Medical Center/Carrollton and Tanner Medical Center/ Villa Rica were honored with HealthGrades’ Outstanding Patient Experience Award for 2011 and 2012. HealthGrades used data from the Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAPS)—the first national, standardized, publicly reported survey of patients’ perspectives of hospital care.

Tanner Adopts New Policy for Improved Approach to Chronic Pain Management Patients who turn to Tanner Health System’s emergency departments for chronic pain medications will receive help—if not a prescription—from a new pain management policy now in place. As rising levels of prescription drug abuse become a national problem and draw increasing concern from local law enforcement agencies, Tanner hopes the new policy will help both residents who may have an addiction to prescription pain medication and those who are living with untreated chronic pain. “As physicians, we’re going to do everything we can to help someone with a problem,” said Tom Fitzgerald, MD, a board-certified emergency physician with Carrollton Emergency Physicians and physician director of emergency department operations and clinical management at Tanner Medical Center/Carrollton, Tanner’s most-visited emergency department. “But the emergency department is an extremely difficult place to treat problems with chronic pain because we only have the one encounter with the patient; we’re not where someone goes for a follow-up, so we can’t know if we’re simply helping someone with short-term pain or potentially causing harm by providing access to medications to which the patient may be addicted or may even be looking to sell.” Dr. Fitzgerald, who authored the new policy after reviewing similar policies at other medical centers, said the policy is meant to ensure that patients are receiving the help they need. The policy addresses chronic pain medication and sedatives. According to the policy, people who have pain that has lasted longer

VILLA RICA NEWS & VIEWS

than six months—as well as those who have received medication more than eight times in the past year (or more than three times in the past month), those who have not followed-up for pain management care after previously receiving treatment and referral in the emergency department and those who are already in (or have been rejected from) a pain management plan—will not be eligible to receive prescriptions for pain medication or sedatives. Rather, those individuals will be encouraged to follow up with a primary care provider or will receive a referral to the Tanner Pain Management Center, where patients can establish a relationship with a physician who can better manage prescriptions. “The policy provides the flexibility to treat patients who need help,” said Dr. Fitzgerald. “Those who have been injured, suffered trauma or otherwise have a valid need for pain medication or sedatives will receive appropriate treatment. And those who are not eligible for these types of medications also will receive help through Tanner’s system of pain management specialists and behavioral health providers. Our patients won’t leave the hospital without somewhere to turn for help.” The policy is in effect at each of Tanner’s three regional 24-hour emergency departments, including Tanner Medical Center/Carrollton, Tanner Medical Center/Villa Rica and Higgins General Hospital in Bremen. Tanner Pain Management Center accepts appointments by physician referral only. More information on the service can be found online at www.TannerPainManagement.org or by calling 770.812.5701.

Those early discs and John Berry’s strong regional popularity attracted him attention on Music Row. Capitol Records signed him in 1992 and it was there that he had a string of hits, but it was his stunning performance of the title track of the 1995 CD O’ Holy Night that led to

Helping Those In Need

Villa Rica company and people aid hurricane victims After seeing the devastation from Hurricane Sandy and the need for supplies, local resident Cody Mayfield knew he wanted to make a difference. He organized, largely through Facebook, what turned out to be an amazing community effort. Cody’s father, Randy, owns a trucking company, so he was able to secure a semi-truck. A friend, Robin Baker, who has family in the area, was able to organize the distribution of the goods through an organization in New Jersey - Compassion Services International. The group was able to set up the truck in the Villa Rica WalMart parking lot on Wednesday, and donations came pouring in as area residents donated supplies they purchased at the department store. “A tractor trailer and driver were donated to this operation. Businesses called in with monetary donations or materials immediately. We had pallets of water donated from various companies including Home Depot, pallets of dog food, six pallets of canned goods, handmade quilts from the elderly, a group of United Methodist Church children put together hundreds of gallon bags of brand new toiletries included with a personal note in each bag, the Wounded Warriors gave money, even a group of card players gave $500 toward fuel expenses,” Baker said. “We heard a need for men and women’s undergarments, put out the call and in a few hours we had tons of new packs of each,” she continued, noting that cleaning supplies, mops, brooms, gloves, garbage bags, baby food, formula, diapers and other items were also collected. “It is overwhelming to me the extent that our small town gave,” she said. Eager to make their delivery quickly while the need was still the greatest, Cody, his father Randy Mayfield and friends Aubrey Merritt and Nick Gladden drove all night from Villa Rica on Thursday, November 8th to personally deliver a semi loaded with donated food, blankets, new clothing, and all kinds of other supplies to those whose homes and belongings were damaged by Hurricane Sandy. The truck arrived at about noon Friday the 9th and immediately unloaded. According to Mayfield, the group stayed up for almost 48 hours straight, but it was well worth it. Cody wanted us to express his thanks to the people of Villa Rica and the businesses who truly made a difference in the lives of others.

Prevent Premature Aging in Furniture Dermatologists’ warnings about the risks of the sun’s damaging rays seem to be getting through to most of us as we pay more attention to sun exposure and sunscreen. If our sofas and chairs could talk, you might hear them complain about being dry,

cracked and wrinkly from sitting in direct sunlight. Unfortunately, Coppertone doesn’t make sunscreen for the chaise lounge. Now is a good time to take an inventory of your furniture – indoors and outdoors – to see which items need a little TLC or which pieces should be moved around to minimize sun exposure. Paying attention to your furniture extends its life. DOs and DON’Ts of extending furniture’s life Discoloration and fading

DON’T use markers to treat spots or areas of discoloration. Many old wives tales state that you can use markers to repair discolored leather. That is NOT true. Markers cannot match the exact appearance of the leather as it is not made for this purpose, so never use a marker to quickly remove the discoloration. You will only end up creating an irregular look. DO regularly apply leather cleaner and try to keep furniture out of direct sunlight as much as possible. Drying up

DON’T ever treat your leather with olive oil, petroleum or any other type of oil. A lot of people do to try to prevent drying, but the oil you use will get soaked up just like any other oil, resulting in spots and discoloration. Olive oil and all other oils actually speed up the deterioration process for leather. As leather is porous it will absorb the oil and over time the absorbed oil will lead to discoloration. DO apply protection cream regularly.
