Labor Day Weekend

Powers Festival looking to 43rd annual for 2013 By Sarah Fay Campbell


n Coweta County, for the past 42 years, Labor Day weekend has meant the Powers Festival, with arts and crafts, fun, food and entertainment. The 43rd annual festival runs Saturday, Sunday and Monday, Aug. 31 to Sept. 2, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. off Highway 34 West between Newnan and Franklin. It features high quality arts and crafts, with only handmade items allowed. The food has changed a lot over the years, and commercial food vendors were brought in a few years ago to expand the offerings. "We've upgraded the food," said Amy Lane of Powers Pavilion, the new name for the festival grounds. We've been able to try all these vendors now, so we're only inviting back the ones that are awesome." This is the second Labor Day weekend Powers Festival since operation of the festival and grounds was turned over to a management company. Coweta

Festivals, Inc., the group of five non-profits that has owned and run the festival for most of its history, still is the owner, but isn't as involved in the operations. Coweta Festivals gets a portion of the proceeds from events held at the property. Lane said they've worked hard to only have quality, handmade items at the festival. "We thoroughly go through every application" to make sure no "buy-sell" items slip in, Lane said. In addition to the arts and crafts, there will be some gourmet packaged food vendors and farm-fresh produce. There will also be a blacksmith, pony rides and a petting zoo from Jubilee Farms, and plenty of small carnival-type rides for the kids. Last year, the Powers Pavilion management group brought in some carnival style rides for the kids, and they were a big hit, so that aspect is being expanded. There will also be a zip line, water walkers, monkey bungee, moon walks and more. Entertainment has become a bigger part of the festival since

Mark Turnham of Xcessive Sound started being in charge of it. In addition to the main stage, there are smaller stages near the vendors, so there will be live music all three days. Among the performers for the 2013 Labor Day weekend festival is duo R & R — Riley and Rebecca. Riley Yeilding will be featured on a side stage throughout the entire weekend festival. He also makes custom handcrafted guitars that are for sale. Some other music lined up for the 43rd annual festival: Neil Cribbs, Kris Youmans, Paige McCauley, Sweet Grass Sally, Brushfire Bluegrass, 3 Buck Shy, Kat Lewis, George Applegate and the Saltwater Band, and Captain Stab and Maybelle. Adult admission for the Powers Festival is $7. Children 6 and under are admitted free, and tickets for seniors 55 and older are $5. Coupons will be available to turn one day’s admission into a threeday pass.

Self-professed ‘Goodwill Ambassador’ brings smiles, roses and his unique style to downtown Newnan

Me e t

Mr. Personality

By Bradley Hartsell


ou’ve seen h i m da nci n g on t he cor ner of LaGrange and West Broad. Or passing out roses while strolling dow n the Cour t Square. He’s Mr. Personality, Newnan’s self-professed “Goodwill Ambassador.” Ma ny have wondered about Mr. Personality — his origins, his motives. Though he’s downtown every day, wavi ng a nd da nci ng, a nd willing to talk to anybody, Mr. Personality has remained somewhat of an enigma. So who is he? Who is the man who dances with a cane, a rose in his mouth? Mr. Personality is William Odell Crenshaw. He came to Georgia by way of Florida, where he lived for 20 years. He ser ved 14 yea rs as a n Army supply sergeant, going all over the world from Germany to Korea. The moniker “Mr. Personality” began as a wry joke in 1995. He says “Mr. Butthead” would have been more apt back then. He claims he was insensitive and conceited, prone to making jokes at others’ expense and over vices such as smoking and profanity. He had a friend he asked to make him a “Mr. Personality” button purely out of fun. Mr. Personality began to sense his off-putting ways and thought, “What if I really was Mr. Personality?” What ensued was a slow transformation from William Odell Crenshaw and into the fullon Goodwill Ambassador. He explains that the name tel ls you what you ca n expect. If he went around using profanity, he points out, that wouldn’t be “Mr. Personality.” Nor would he be “Mr. Personality” if he were to gossip. Most people

see things in shades of grey, but Mr. Personality says he now sees things in black and white, which makes it easier for him to identity the proper way to behave and present himself. “I call myself Mr. Personality, because I’ve given that name to my highest self. And I want to be my highest self 24/7,” he explains. “By putting the name tag on, I can stay focused on being Mr. Personality as opposed to being William O., because Willia m O. ca n get in trouble.” “If I do everything according to Mr. Personality, I’m a much better person.” Mr. Personality worked as a night watchman at a motel in Florida until the motel owner retired, but he kept his uniform. Inspired by his sister’s advice, he moved to Georgia in January. He first moved to Fayetteville, dressed in a dapper khaki outfit with a derby. H e m a d e t h e m ove to Newnan in April because it was closer to his VA clinic, but he soon found Newnan more of a natural home. “This place is wonderful. Everybody is nice, friendly,” he says of Newnan. “I made friends here real quick.” Since coming to Newnan, Mr. Personality, who celebrated his 64th birthday on Aug. 5, has dressed in his patented black dress clothes and top hat, red cumberbun and corsage. He’s well-spoken and can reach for twodollar words when he wants. He waxes philosophical and carries scholarly texts (this day, he’s reading “The Inner West: A n Introduction to the Hidden Wisdom of the West”). Copies of his allegorical poem “The Bus” have made their rounds around town.

15th Annual

Wendy’s reopens with fundraiser By Clay Neely

The newly-renovated Wendy’s restaurant on Bullsboro Drive reopened a week ago with a fundraiser for the Boys and Girls Club of Newnan/Coweta. Wendy’s participated in two trial lunch periods on Friday and Saturday in which all food was at no cost to customers and donations were welcomed. Wendy’s then matched the accumulated donations and was able to raise $2,222 for the local Boys and Girls Club. Wendy’s also has plans for an additional branch opening in front of the Cancer Treatment Centers of America at Southeastern Regional Medical Center in Newnan this year. At that time, the restaurant will be utilizing the same fundraising platform in conjunction with the Boys & Girls Club.

AUG. 30-SEPT. 1

The LBD rocks With school back in session, I am waiting for the big science project to be assigned. I am not worried, the Little Black Dress is a master with those tri-fold boards where you show your experiment on how long it takes for water to freeze at different starting points. And when it comes to rocks, the LBD has no equal, having studied said rocks/minerals now with three SONs of Thunder. To put it simply, the Little Black Dress has the Mohs Hardness Scale down pat. What she's learned about rocks and minerals is impressive. This is especially true when you consider she somehow bypassed every science class in school. I know this, this being the whole rock thing, because over the years she and the various SONs have recited and recited and recited said hardness scale a nd va r iou s rock /m i nera l definitions. To listen to her say “sedimentary,” well, Shakespeare could


write a sonnet around it. And don't get me started on “igneous.” As the word glides over her tongue, well, let's just say it works for me. But it is not all sensuous in the kitchen, where said rocks are learned around the table. There were times a wee bit of frustration, nay, friction developed between The Dress and SONs. The latter always thought they had it all memorized, the LBD ... not so much. There were always requests to stop and eat from the SONs, and bribes/threats from The Dress to withhold substance until said Mohs was down pat. And there was a slight feeling

of pressure in the room, with the idea of failing to correctly identify all minerals properly would somehow scar the SONs for life. Could be a key interview question, knowing the difference between one rock over the other. I remember one study session where The Dress had enough of talc and cleavage and topaz. She turned to me and said, “The only rocks I care about are diamonds and sapphires.” I asked about rubies and emeralds … “No, I'm fine with just diamonds and sapphires ... and pearls. Yes, definitely pearls,” she said. I politely tried to point out to her that, technically, pearls aren't rocks/minerals. And I ducked just in time before one of the rocks she had borrowed for training purposes hit me in the head. But, later on, after the kids were in bed, I did get her to say igneous in my ear.

43rd Annual Powers Festival

Along with farm fresh produce there will be goods from local vendors at the 43rd annual Powers including Wally Bee’s Pure Honey, from Lynn and Wally Batchelor.

Mindy Harrell will be one of the many artists at this year’s annual Powers Festival.

Labor Day weekend brings 43 edition of festival started by Tom Powers From Staff Reports

cooked vegetables and old-time fried pies to funnel cakes and ice cream. Coweta Festivals, Inc., the umbrella organization for the five local non-profits that own the Powers Festival property, in recent years received a Special Events Use Permit from Coweta County. This special events permit now allows the property to be used for multiple events a year. After receiving this permit, Coweta Festivals, Inc. Board of Directors enlisted the help of Xcessive Sound Inc., an event management company, to organize and produce multiple events a year. The management group has produced such events as a haunted trail with a zombie theme for the Halloween season, a spring bike rally for motorcycle enthusiasts, and a barbecue and beer fest. The recent Sessions at Sunset concerts featuring musical talent

on the festival stage have invited attendees to bring food and drink much like a “mini-Chastain Park” concert at the popular venue in north Atlanta. Proceeds from ticket sales at Powers Festival go back each year to the five local nonprofits, which support projects in the Coweta community. Over more than four decades, hundreds of talented artists and craftsmen from across the nation have gathered each Labor Day weekend to display their works from Saturday through Monday. Powers Festival has become well-known throughout the nation and has been selected several times by the Southeast Tourism Society as one of “The Top Twenty Events” for the month of September. Among the many highlights of the festival is the abundance of delicious country cooking

and festival food, bands and entertainers on the main field stage and locations throughout the festival, and a children’s area that has evolved over the years with activities for the younger attendees. Powers Pavilion, which is the new name for the event venue grounds, has housed Powers Festival for the past 42 years, with this upcoming Labor Day event being the 43rd Powers Festival. Powers Pavilion is working to bring visitors the very best outdoor events and entertainment in West Georgia — more festivals, concerts, and events throughout the year which will allow the management group to put more money back into the community and to charitable organizations. Powers Festival will continue its 43-year-old legacy this Labor Day weekend.

The Labor Day weekend, decades-old Powers’ Crossroads Country Fair and Art Festival, now known as Powers Festival, was formed in 1971 by local and well known artist, Tom Powers. The site of the festival — which in 2013 will see its 43rd year — was on the beautiful grounds of the Powers family plantation at Powers’ Crossroads, off Georgia Highway 34 West between Newnan and Franklin. The property straddles the CowetaHeard county line. Exhibitors were set up along winding paths under shady trees. The goal was to exhibit handmade, one-of-a-kind creations — recalling the time of the late 1800s and early 1900s before automobiles and electricity were commonplace, when residents of the rural South were selfsustaining and made much of the goods they needed. From pottery to leather and textiles to blacksmithing, the artisans demonstrated these age-old talents. Among some of the special exhibits in the early years were a working grist mill, a sorghum syrup mill and cooking operation, a blacksmith, and a display of wagons and buggies from an area collector.

43rd Annual Powers Festival

Moss Oak home open for tours Labor Day weekend

Plenty of fun for kids Last year, the Powers Pavilion management group brought in some carnival style rides for the kids, and they were a big hit, so that aspect is being expanded. There will also be a zip line, water walkers, monkey bungee, moon walks and more.

From Staff Reports Jubilee Farms will be bringing a petting zoo for youngsters to enjoy at the 2013 Powers Festival.

The Moss Oak Plantation home, adjacent to the Powers Festival being held at at Powers Pavilion off Highway 34 West at Powers Crossroads, will be on tour over Labor Day weekend. The 1790s home will be open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. or later. Tours are $1. Moss Oak, the HendersonOrr House, is on the National Register of Historic Places, listed in 2000. It was the family home of Tom Powers, who originally developed the Powers Festival in the 1970s. It has been owned by James D. Kornder, DVM, Ph.D. since 1980.

Waterwalkers will be among the fun activities for the younger set at the 43rd annual Powers Festival.

needs it. That’s the most striking aspect of Mr. Personality — his awareness. He knows some people d i sm i ss h i m as a “weirdo” or a crazy old man. When people ask what his “deal” is or act negatively toward him, he always falls back on the fact he’s a “street performer.” When he tells people that, they understand. He is even aware people accept him as a street performer but look at him sideways when t hey k now he truly is Mr. Personality. He also knows he’s still new to t he com mun ity a nd, t hus, knows when to tone down his colorful friendliness. D e spite t he rot ten few, Ne w n a n c ol le c t ively h a s taken to the magnetism of Mr. Personality — and though they wonder exactly who he is, they sense the purity of his purpose. Mr. Personality, however unwittingly, is helping f ill the void left by the passing of Danny “Boomer” Bishop in April. In a completely different way, Boomer was Newnan’s original Mr. Personality.

We need a reason to smile on bad days or a chance to talk with someone who wants to talk with you. Mr. Person-
