The Ne






Newnan Centre will open in June



Habitat fundraiser 1st function at center By JEAN C. WHEELER


Special to The Newnan Times-Herald


he city of Newnan’s long-delayed multiuse complex will open next month, board members were told recently. The Newnan Centre, located next to the Centre for Performing and Visual Arts off Lower Fayetteville Road, will hold an invitation-only opening June 18. “This is a chance for us to thank everyone who has been involved in this project and to show the facility off to potential businesses that could use it,” said Parks Avery, chairman of the Newnan Convention Center Authority, which oversees the complex. A ribbon cutting is planned for June 20 at 10 a.m. with the Newnan-Coweta Chamber of Avery Commerce. A open house for the public is set for June 22 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The first official function will be June 27, a luncheon for Habitat for Humanity. The center includes a main building, a tiered outside amphitheater that can seat about 1,200, and a 1,000-square-foot pavilion. Covered walkways lead from the main building to the pavilion, which is heated but not air-conditioned, and also to the performing arts center. The main building houses a business center and boardroom, which could be used as a bridal room for weddings. It also will have a full kitchen, various sized tables, different seating arrangements, risers for stages, and a dance floor. The main room can be divided into four different sizes

to accommodate various functions. Groundbreaking was in August 2011. However, in the early months of 2012, the general contractor ended up having cash flow problems. The planned opening in April 2012 started getting pushed. Within another couple of months, contractor D.Dean and Associates was fired and worked stopped. Then started negotiations with the insurance company that bonded D.Dean to recoup funds and get a new contractor. Headley Construction of Newnan was named the new contractor and is completing the work. “They [Headley] are really busting to get it done,” Avery said. “It’s going very well and it is really coming together.” Avery said kitchen equipment is installed, as are most of the tiling, wallpaper and trim work. The stereo equipment is installed and testing on it is starting. About the only thing that probably won’t be completed by the grand opening is the pavilion, although workers will be close on that.

Rapper: I want to help other young SIZZLING artists

Landscaping, including new trees and sod, also are being planted. As of now, there’s only been a couple of hiccups. Someone stole the security cameras, and the granite top in the men’s restroom will have to be replaced because it wasn’t the right one.

What bet ter way to christen Newnan’s state-of–the-ar t, new convention center than by attending Newnan- Coweta Habitat for Humanity’s “Building Better Communities” luncheon. Attendees of the event will get a first glimpse of the Newnan Centre and celebrate the accomplishments of the partnerships of local businesses, civic leaders and members of the community. According to Andy Ivey, development director for Newnan-Coweta Habitat, “This is not just a fund-raising event, but a friend-raising event.” He emphasized the event will be an opportunity to raise funds for the internationally-known, non-profit organization, as well as an opportunity to discover other ways of supporting an organization that has partnered with local families to provide suitable housing in the NewnanCoweta area since 1994. The “Building Better Communities” luncheon will begin at 11:30 a.m. on June 27 at the Newnan Centre, 1523 Lower Fayetteville Road. A delicious meal will be served as well as a large helping of laughter from one of America’s top comediennes, Anita Renfroe.

Savory a nd Swee t Hot Dog Recipes ➤


Caprese Salad Topped Smoked Sausage Sandwiches

With Savory and Sweet


When savory meets sweet, it’s simply a perfect union — especially when planning a sizzling summer-time menu. Nothing brings the palate more pleasure than a cooked sausage, slightly seared, and topped with crunchy, fresh salad and salsa toppers.

Embrace a range of simple yet flavorful ingredients First, select a tasty base for your recipe that can be quickly and easily spiced up, such as smoked sausage. Then choose a range of fresh ingredients, such as herbs, vegetables and fruits, that when simply paired together create a delicious dish. Get creative and try unique ingredient combinations, such as red onions paired with tart green apples or mangoes. An intense blend of flavors, along with the savory appeal of sausage, will surely satisfy even the most hard-toplease appetites. Challenge your flavor bravery by incorporating other flavor pairings into your sausage and burger toppings. Your local farmers’ market is a one-stop shop for fresh, local ingredients that are found in the below recipes. It can also serve as an interactive source of inspiration where you might find an herb, vegetable or fruit you’ve never tried that will easily spice up your own summertime recipe.

By JEFF BISHOP Special to The Newnan Times-Herald Newnan youths looking for some relief from the summer heat (and boredom) might want to consider looking up Mizzle Enterprise on Macedonia Road. The Urban Dictionary defines mizzle as “a type of weather between mist and drizzle; very fine, almost cloud-like rain.” Kendall Mack of Newnan has his own definition. “It’s about being positive. Nothing negative,” said the young rapper and aspiring record producer. Known as “K-Mack” when he performed his raps locally and even internationally two years ago, Mack said he now wants to help other aspiring hip hop artists produce music and gain exposure. The young man, a Newnan High School graduate, said he sees a lot of talent in Coweta County and he wants to use his experience to help other young people get the same kinds of opportunities he had. “I got to go overseas, I got to go to Japan and Sweden. I got to be on BET. I had my share. Now I want to give back

to the community and give others those same kinds of opportunities,” he said. “You don’t have to go anywhere else. You can be right here in Newnan and still be successful.” He said the Internet gives today’s aspiring artists a platform and networking opportunities that their hip hop forebears in the 1980s and early ‘90s could only dream about. From the time he was 9 years old Mack used the Internet to release his songs and videos. Other Coweta rappers are doing the same thing. “I just want to help other artists out,” said Mack. Currently he is helping to shepherd the new careers of several local rappers as well as his own brother, Marquez Mack, performing under the name “Quez.” “I want to write songs about life,” said the younger Mack, an NHS student. “My friends at school like the songs I’ve done. I’ve just got to keep doing it and never give up. My brother has helped me a lot.” Mack said he relished his time as a young opening act for artists like Nelly, T.I., Roscoe Dash, Travis Porter, Waka Flocka, Gucci Mane, Shawty Lo, Fabo, Chris Brown and oth-

ers. He also flew to New York to be a guest speaker on BET’s 106 and Park. But he said that now he wants to step back and work “behind the scenes” to “help other artists out.” “You can’t really go by what your friends or family say is good or not,” he said. “It’s basically all about getting that one hit record. If you don’t have that hit record, it doesn’t matter what your beats are or your lyrics. You aren’t going to get any attention or feedback from a record label. You have to be lyrical, and you have to be versatile, and you have to really deliver something on the track.” Mack said he developed a small niche because he didn’t believe in cursing and rapping about drugs and violence on his records. “That’s just who I am,” he said. “I was trying to make a change in the industry. But most of all I just had to be myself. Nothing negative, all positive.” While major record companies and producers charge aspiring talent exorbitant fees to evaluate new material, Mack says that’s not YOUNG ARTISTS, Page 6

Yellow fever

Thinking of Beau At last count, we have three dogs, two cats, two gerbils and a ball python at our abode. I did not get to “pick” any of them. I don’t have my own pet. My last one died many, many years ago. I don’t know why I’ve been thinking of him this week, but I have. Anyway, here’s an old column I wrote about him decades ago: I n a med h i m Beau mont , although I often called him Beau — but never Bo. He was a total surprise when he suddenly showed up at my door. I could easily hold him in my hand. He seemed to weigh nothing at all. It was my junior year in college, and suddenly I had a major responsibility before me. He was of mixed race. Yet over the years I learned that made him unique. The timing could not have been worse — I had a major Russian history exam the next morning. I called my professor at home and simply said, “my girlfriend just gave me a dog.” H i s reply, to h i s cred it , was “so when do you want to reschedule your exam?” Yep, I was now the proud owner of a German ShepherdBorder Collie mix. That first night was memorable. I always wanted a dog that would sleep at the foot of the bed so I put little Beau there. I awoke in the middle of the night with him straddling me and peeing all over me. He never slept in my bed again. But I loved him fiercely. He went to classes with me, we walked miles in the woods toget her. He bit me once because I wouldn’t stop on one particular trail. He finally ran a few yards ahead of me, jumped a log and attacked something. When I got there I found a big snake he had just killed. He proudly carried that scar on his nose from that day forward. We traveled the countr y together: Virginia, Oklahoma, Georgia, Washington, D.C., and Alaska. He never ran, he hopped. And he loved to chase rats, even when there weren’t any. “Go get the rat, Beau,” the LBD or I would say, and laugh as he hopped around looking for them. We aged together. A few years ago, the Little Black Dress, who was the daughter of a veterinarian, brought up the absurd idea of getting him “fixed.” I took it personally. I mean this was my dog. In the end, she convinced me solely because her dad told me he would live longer. Of course, I was told he would never raise his leg again — ha, till the end he continued to do just that. My dog was still a stud. The Alaska winters became


harder and harder for him. And once again The Dress stepped in to deal with the issues I simply couldn’t. She constantly reminds me that one girlfriend gave me the dog, another commissioned a huge painting of him — which takes a prominent space in every house we live in and is the first thing unpacked and put up — while she is the one who took care of him. When it got to the point where he couldn’t walk up the stairs, I knew it was time. So I decided a Viking funeral would be the only way. I’d put him on a little raft, set him adrift on our favorite fly fishing stream, light it on fire and watch the tide take him out. Once again The Dress, after talking with her dad, stepped in. She gently informed me it probably wou ld not be as romantic and heroic as I thought. And so she made the arrangements. Friends came over loaded down with wine. Beau, my then one-year-old, first-born Son of Thunder and I went for a final romp. The vet came over to our house. I put him down on his favorite blanket and played his favorite song — “Too Many Rivers To Cross” by the reggae band UB40. I held him in my arms while the vet injected him first with a muscle relaxant. When the song reached the perfect spot, I nodded, the vet gave him another injection. Beau looked at me, I believe with a knowing but understanding look, and then he died. He was my best friend. I’ve kept his collar and still carry a picture of him in my wallet. I’m fortunate in having other best friends now — The Dress especially and my two Sons of Thunder. They have filled a huge gap. I’m lucky. One day I’ll get another dog, although it might be a while. I still miss Beau; plus The Dress said there was no way she was going to potty train three babies at once.

I bored my pals senseless bragging about how the caper would come off. No problem, I said. Done deal. Sixth-grade bombshell June Johnson was dying to spend some time in my bony arms. And so when the music came up and the lights went down at the annual 4-H Club banquet, I cleared my throat, walked right up to the girl of my dreams and, as my buddies looked on, croaked, “Uh, June, you want to dance?” When she hissed “With you?” Don Holmes laughed so hard milk spewed from his nose. I simply curled up and whimpered softly. I have since been careful about boasts I can’t back up. But I don’t hesitate to say that when it comes to road trips, I am a legend. Call me the Maestro of motoring. My secret is staying spontaneous. At least when choosing a route. The latest outing offered me a chance to discover dazzling new sights, sounds and adventures between Georgia and Wisconsin. In the interest of better motoring and marital bliss I started by looking for spots I knew would appeal to my wife, Angela. Which is how we wound up in Paducah, Ky. And yes, Paducah is waaaay out of the way. But Paducah offers something you won’t find anywhere else...the National Quilt Museum. Paducah was the perfect pick. First, because I had never been there and love visiting new places. Second, because if the National Quilt Museum lived up to Angela’s expectations I would earn enough brownie points to pick the next stop with no questions asked. Paducah was swell, and I got to see lots of it while Angela browsed the museum.

ALEX mcrae

When she came out, she was beaming. So was I. Mostly because I had spent the previous evening choosing our next stop — a place that had Me written all over it. Peoria, Illinois, is pleasant, attractive and relatively harmless. It is also home to Caterpillar International. Caterpillar has recently opened a Visitors Center featuring loads of equipment to play with and drool over. When Angela heard me gush at the thought of seeing that much heavy yellow metal in one place she took it in stride. She even went to Catland with me.  Our tour started in a “theater” featuring 66 plush movie seats. All the seats were filled. Better yet, they were all in the bed of a Caterpillar dump truck. And not just any dump truck. The Cat 797 is the world’s largest mechanical drive haul truck. I repeat: the world’s LARGEST truck. And I was sitting in it.  The lights went down in the “theater” and the promotional film began. For 10 minutes the screen was filled with images of giant machines doing giant machine things. It was heavy equipment porn, complete with heavy breathing throughout the theater.

After the film we toured the rest of the facility, which was packed with massive backhoes, graders and dozers.  I wanted to dig a hole so bad I couldn’t stand it. Angela was a good sport and even bought her father a Cat hat at the gift shop. I got one, too, plus a shirt and coffee cup. Then it was on to Wisconsin. After a wonderful visit with the grandboys, we hit the road for a mad dash home, pushing straight through from Sheboygan to Newnan in 15 hours, stopping only for fuel and food. The pace was frantic, but my travel skills still prevailed. I’ll never believe it was an accident that I selected a fuel stop in Bowling Green, Ky., that sold plastic cups like the one Uncle Si drinks from in Duck Dynasty. Boom! Quilts, Caterpillar and Duck Dynasty in a single excursion. Sometimes, I even amaze myself. Send your email comments to:
