WORKING SMARTER Telework is business as usual for Newnan family

By Clay Neely clay@newnan.com

An alarm clock buzzes and we begrudgingly remove ourselves from the warm, inviting comfort of our beds and begin our morning rituals. For many, getting out the door and facing the new day unfortunately begins with a grueling commute to our places of work. We hop in our cars and right into the stop and go grind of morning traffic and all of its inevitable delays, all the while watching the clock tick away. By the time we arrive at our destination, our mood hasn’t cha nged much from the moment we woke. So, just what were those first few hours for anyway? What if we could regain this valuable time and begin our workday with a different perspective? For one couple, teleworking from their Newnan home is not only the “norm,” but it’s also a way of life they would never dream of giving up.

Meet Kent and Erin Smith. Erin is a program manager for Davaco Inc., a retail and hospitality service company based in Dallas. On any given day, she’s running teams from all across the country whose jobs are to ensure products from clients like Nike and Kenneth Cole are set up correctly for the specialty stores they will occupy. Her day begins at 8 a.m. and winds down around 5 p.m. As president of both Tattoo Artist Magazine and Tattoo Culture Magazine, Kent stays pretty busy. He recently founded his own website as well, Illustrated.monthly.com — a website which specializes in digital reference guides for artists. He wears many hats in business. “PR, administration, bookkeeping, art direction and janitor,” he laughs. “It’s even on my business card: ‘Vice President/ Janitor.’” Add a four-year-old daughter and a newborn son to the mix

and one might imagine things could get complicated quickly. Not so much. Erin and Kent have been working from home since 2006, and have established a routine maximizing the harmony between both productivity and a happy family life. Prior to her current role at Davaco, Erin has held three other positions, all via telecommuting. In fact, she was the first to incorporate Skype into her division. She grim ly reca lls the p e r i o d b e fo r e S k y p e w a s utilized. “Not only were we spending money flying out to meet the candidates, we were losing the candidates as well since we had to wait until a certain amount were eligible in order to even begin the interview process.” Sk y pe ch a nged t he pro cess and savings have been tremendous. The savings are seen from across the board

Kent and Erin Smith have been teleworking full-time since 2006.

— from financial savings to smarter time management, not to mention the carbon footprint. “It just makes more sense,” she says . “I f a meet i ng is ca nceled, we simply move right along to the next order of business. We’re not stuck trying to catch a f light back or experiencing a high volume of downtime.” Erin recognizes that telework is still a growing phenomenon and the learning curve associated with using

Skype can be tricky. “Mainly operator issues,” she laughs. “We’ve conducted job interviews with candidates who have laundry baskets in the background, maybe a bathroom door is open. People still need to realize they are, in fact, still in a business atmosphere.” When the topic of possible distractions from home is brought up, Kent is quick to elaborate on the subject. Kent says a distraction-free environment is what led him to work from home.

Clean Sweep

Prior to working from home, Kent was running both of his publications out of an office. He often found himself distracted by people who liked to drop in and take a glimpse into the inner workings of an internationally-published magazine located in Newnan. Being at home allows Kent to manage his time more efficiently, thereby increasing his productivity and focus. Kent ack nowledges t hat

Volunteers recently pulled 560 pounds of trash out of the Chattahoochee River at Chattahoochee Bend State Park at one of more than 200 clean-up events in the state that were part of Rivers Alive 2013. There were 28 volunteers scouring the river at the event. Most worked from canoes or kayaks, with two cleaning from the bank. There have been several cleanups held along the park's river frontage in the past few years, and a lot of the larger debris has been removed. There were no shopping carts or refrigerators this time but there were lots of balls, a set of wooden steps, and a muddy Cabbage Patch doll. Because of heavy growth along the banks and high water levels there hasn’t been many opportunities for shoreside cleanup. There were plenty of volunteers for the

event, said Steve St. Laurent, president of the Friends of Chattahoochee Bend State Park. But he's hoping for greater community involvement in the next few months as the friends group begins building new trails for the first time in a year-and-a-half. The next major event at the park will be held on Sept. 28. It’s a major volunteer day, as well as being “Your State Parks Day” throughout the state. Admission is free to state parks on that day. Those cleaning the river included locals as well as volunteers who heard about the cleanup on meetup.com. Ben Butler, Gillian Kaye and Gabriel Gomar came from Decatur and Gainesville for the cleanup. Gomar read about the cleanup on the meetup.com page and brought some friends. “I thought it was a lot of fun,” said Kaye. “We’re definitely coming back.”

Melanie Thrasher and Susan Meals were camping at Chattahoochee Bend when they heard about the cleanup. They were at the park to check out new kayaking spots, and decided to participate in the cleanup. “We’re very much into conservation, so this worked out perfectly,” Thrasher said. They weren’t able to get as much trash as they would have liked because the water was high, and it was moving quickly. The high river levels also covered up a lot of the trash. This was Anne Jensen’s second river cleanup. “It was a pretty day. It was a lot of fun to be on the water,” she said. There were no accidents, said Archie Davis. “Safety is more important than all the trash in the river,” he said. “Safety is

How dry we ain’t This summer has been so soggy my skin is growing mildew. Forget Waldo. Most residents of the Deep South are wondering, “Where’s the sun?” The lucky Southerners are the ones who’ve turned their bass boats into moving vans and headed for drier pastures. In tough times like these I can usually scrape up a few light-hearted news tidbits to chase the blues away. Right now, such stories are in short supply. Even in Florida, which normally generates enough side-splitting news stories to put a smile on the sourest puss. Things are so bad in the Sunshine State some residents have even forgotten why they go to the beach. According to Barbara Hijek of the South Florida SunSentinel, Leyla Denise Aykin recently got a Florida State Trooper’s attention by doing 87 in a 70 mph zone. The trooper wasn’t surprised that Aykin’s left arm was sticking out the window. But her left leg was, too, which is considered poor motoring, even in Florida. Once Aykin was pulled over, things really got strange. The incident report said when the lawman approached Aykin, she “appeared high” and had a “lights on, nobody home” expression. When asked to place her h a nd s on t he c a r, Ayk i n recited what she called a Muslim prayer. Appearing high and invoking Allah at traffic stops are common events in Florida, but the trooper reports he got nervous when Aykin told him, “she wanted to taste me and gaze through me.” She t hen s a id she wa s headed for the beach so she could “taste the ocean.” The best part? She was completely sober. Not a trace of booze or drugs in her system. All the trooper found was a bag of green stuff later identified as “stinging nettle.” Aykin said she used it to make tea. A lt houg h Ayk i n te ste d clean, the trooper still felt she shouldn’t drive. He asked if he could call someone to pick her up. She said, “Jesus.” That’s exactly what I said when I read the story. When it rains so much that

ALEX mcrae

legally-sober Florida residents want to “taste” the ocean, t h i ngs a re def i n itely out of whack. And don’t get me started on what wet weather does to your hair. People say when life gives you lemons, you should make lemonade. What do you make when life gives you water? Mud? To find out, I researched the habits of people who walk on the wet side. Rain falls 149 days per year in Seattle. How do people cope? Some can't, which is why the state of Washington legalized suicide in 2008. Last year, Washington lawmakers legalized the use of marijuana for those who felt death was a bit drastic. Neither law stopped the rain, but Washington residents seem determined to muddle through. Recently, thousands of people who hadn’t yet committed suicide packed downtown Seattle for Hempfest, a funfilled event where dope smokers hang out and get high. Hempfest is so hip that people actually seek out secondhand smoke and suck it up. Especially during the complimentary Cheech & Chong movies. Stoners also enjoyed free Doritos passed out by the Seattle cops. The Dorito bags came complete with printed l a b el s rem i nd i n g p e ople attending the event that using pot in public was illegal. The label also said cops wouldn’t write tickets to anyone who broke the law. Com i ng soon to a t heater near you: “Senseless in Seattle.” On the bright side, no one at Hempfest complained about the rain or committed suicide. It’s a blessing. Speaking of which, if the Georgia rain doesn’t let up soon, I may start spending more time at church. Even if my prayers for sunshine go unanswered, I might pick up some tips about walking on water.

What happened to pencil and paper? A few of weeks ago the SONs of Thunder tornadoed into the Little Black Dress’ bedroom at 6 a.m. Yes, it’s the LBD’s bedroom. I just sleep there — that is, after I remove the countless pillows and other decor that turns the bed from a bed to some Southern Living magazine cover. I digress. The cause of this eruption was the first day of school. And apparently I had to get up right that very second to ensure the SONs would make it to school just two hours later. The Dress got up and made brea kfast because apparently they would die of malnourishment if they didn’t eat the Paul Bunyan breakfast she manufactured that involved just about everything in the fridge. They ate more that morning than all the breakfasts during the summer combined. Which is sort of a lie, because there is no such thing as break-

JOHN WINTERS

fast in the summer. It’s more like late brunch or just plain lunch or early dinner. The SONs have a tendency to sleep in when school is not in session. Anyway. So school is back and the SONs are prepped. By prepped I mean our dining room table is covered with what are known as “supplies.” Lord help me. Said purchase of the myriad of so-called necessary supplies has taken a couple of weeks to gather. I have not had dinner on that table since. There is no room. I can understand a couple of pencils, maybe a spiral note-

book or two, and even some loose leaf paper. But no. Because the wonderful educators have been so kind to provide a supply list. We need wipes and a ziploc bag and facial tissue and the aforementioned spiral notebooks that must be in different colors and dry erasers and glue sticks (don’t get me going on the glue sticks) and crayons and dividers. But wait, there’s more. Scissors and folders and even more glue sticks — the term used was “lots,” and highlighters of assorted colors and sizes, clorox wipes, hand sanitizer (what happened to sleeves?), index ca rds a nd colored pencils. The latter must be sharpened. There’s more, but I think you get the point. And to top it off, we have new school clothes. This is something I really don’t understand. By that I mean, why do I need to spend a couple of car payments on school clothes?

What’s wrong with what they were wearing yesterday? The Dress says I must not have had a childhood. To finish the various ensembles, the SONs are also adorned with the latest hip footwear, which a ll I ca n f ig ure out involves the brightest neon colors imaginable. Whatever became of Converse high tops? After discovering the cost of said shoes, I tried to ask, again, what was wrong with the shoes they had on the day before. I also tried to highlight the fact they had feet so the footwear was really irrelevant anyway. The Dress brought up that whole childhood thing again. School is back and the routine is slowly reforming. And the excitement is starting to wear off. The SONs are taking a little bit longer each morning to arise. I know we will be back in full routine mode when I once again use the water guns to get them up.

Teleworking Continued from page 1 Newnan’s new Main Street manager, Courtney Collins.

Newnan welcomes new Main Street manager By Clay Neely clay@newnan.com

Main Street Newnan has a new program manager, Courtney Collins. Collins comes to Newnan with a background in historic preservation and a love for the “heart and soul” of downtown. She finished her master’s of Heritage Preservation in Historic Preservation from Georgia State University in May 2013, and her focus was in historic preservation planning. While in graduate school, she worked for the Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation as a

member of the Rhodes Hall event staff, and as an intern for the development department. Collins is a graduate of Georgia Southern University, where she earned a B.A in history. She is originally from Columbus, Ga., and is a graduate of Harris County High School. The enthusiasm that Collins has expressed toward Newnan’s Main Street program is something she hopes to share with the community.

Community and student string musicians invited to join Centre Strings Orchestra By Staff Reports education@newnan.com

The 201 3-2014 season of Centre Strings — Coweta County's only community/student string orchestra — will begin with the first rehearsal on Tuesday, September 10. Anyone who has played an orchestral string instrument (violin, viola, cello, or bass) for two years or more, is welcome to join Centre Strings in rehearsals for future concerts. Current members range from the ages of 8 to 84. Rehearsals are being held on Tuesday evenings from 6:30 p.m. to 7:45 p.m. at Central Education Center. Centre Strings holds no forma l auditions. “Centre Strings was built on the premise that music should not be competitive,” said the Music Director and Conductor for Centre Strings Dr. Lyn Schen-

beck. “With the exception of the concertmaster's named chair, none of the seats are auditioned. Seats are rotated throughout the season.” This season, members will perform music by George Frideric Handel, Nicolai RimskyKorsakov, Jacques Offenbach, and Leroy Anderson — among others. “If someone plays an orchestral instrument, I hope they would consider joining Centre Strings. I am certain they will enjoy the warmth and camaraderie of the orchestra, while maintaining high standards of musical excellence,” said Schenbeck. For further information on the concert or Centre Strings, please call the Centre for Performing and Visual Arts on Lower Fayetteville Road in Newnan at 770-254-2787 or Dr. Schenbeck at 678-423-2000, ext. 230

number one. Trash is a bonus." And there was "quite a lot of it for the river to be up this high." T here ha s been a lot of "resource management" work going on at the park lately, said Park Manager Tim Banks, and the river cleanup is a great complement to that. There has been work on replacing invasive plant species with natives. Two weeks ago, Boy Scouts participated in an eagle project to place duck nesting boxes in the 35 acre wetland area. Owl boxes have also been hung, as have some bat boxes. Cowet a Fayet te E MC donated poles for the bat boxes, Banks said. The boxes can hold up to 100 bats, and hopes are to have a very healthy bat population. A bat can eat twice its weight in insects every night. Thanks to the bats, "we hope to be fairly mosquito-free in a few years," Banks said. For more information on the Friends of Chattahoochee Bend, visit www.BendFriend. com.

t here a re d i st rac t ion s i n almost any kind of work environment. However, he finds the home distractions much easier to manage than those in a standard workplace. His deadlines remain the same but his schedule is malleable, allowing him to take care of things that matter most to him: picking up his daughter from school, having lunch with his family or being there for Erin when things get busy on her end. “When I was working in an office atmosphere, the 9 to 5 mentality was so prevalent,” he recalls. “At the end of the day, you’re more focused on simply getting out of work so you can rush home to do all the things you weren’t able to from the office. You miss your children.” Kent shakes his head, “Oh, never again.” “ Wa k i ng up at 6 i n t he morning so I could start the 40-minute commute to the office only to get off at 5 and begin the long grind home. If you’ve already had a rough day at work, a brutal commute home will only exacerbate it. It’s not difficult to understand how road rage is so prevalent.” Erin also experienced the pros and cons of telework and admits there are some aspects she misses about working onsite. As a young woman in the workforce, Erin wanted to learn as much as she could from those above her. Due to the constraints of working from home, she understood that she simply had to try harder to obtain these things. “ You have to be able to push yourself,” she elaborates. “Because of the nature of telework, it’s imperative that you must go above and beyond in terms of standard learning and going the extra mile to foster a working dynamic between you and those above you.” “That’s the only thing I really missed about an office atmosphere — the mentor piece. It’s certainly doable, but you have to really try and have someone on the other end who is willing to do the same.” With telecommuting becoming a new and effective method of work over the last 10 years, some people may envision a more laissez-faire approach to working from

have to work with your spouse all day? How can you stand it?’” “Well, it’s pretty great, actually,” smiles Kent. “She’s my best friend, I married her for a reason and we’re working hard all day. We really don’t have much time for chit-chat. I’m firmly ensconced in my work and so is she. That’s where time management is paramount. We make time at lunch to discuss family and personal matters. Otherwise, our heads are directly in a work space.” Erin understa nds that this method of work isn’t for everyone. Speaking to the current suspension of telework by Yahoo CEO Ma rissa Mayer, Erin sympathizes. “If your numbers are down and you need a collaborative effort, I can understand her point of view. It’s not for every company.” But things are much different now than when Kent and Erin first began telecommut-

ing in 2006. “The entire nature of the business model has changed,” she says. “The utilization of Skype along with new programs that allow clients to interface online simply didn’t exist before.” “Now the quality of life is immensely different, and for the better, along with the quality of work.” Both Kent and Erin are living proof of the efficiency and practicality of telework. With a proven success record of seven years and counting, they still field the occasional query from friends regarding their independent work from home. With the arrival of their newborn son just a few weeks ago, Erin’s found herself fielding a question from a friend: “Are you really going into labor or do you just want to skip this meeting?”

home. The Smiths emphatically refute the notion. Erin spends a good amount of her workday communicating with company teams from across the country, ensuring that every criteria is met and any problems or questions are resolved in a timely manner. “It takes diligence to stay in the forefront of people’s minds. They can’t see you at home working hard, but they can see my assistant in the office with her nose to the grindstone.” Erin laughs, “She’s working so hard because I’m making the work for her!” In terms of her ability to communicate with others, Erin’s record speaks for itself. When her company wanted to promote her to an on-site position at their home office in Dallas, Erin had to pitch to the president of the $100 million dollar corporation her desire to not only remain in Atlanta but also her ability to make the off-site proposition work. It was a successful pitch. “Needless to say, you have to be extremely self-motivated,” she smiles. “I made it very clear what my intention was. Excellent communication skills are the key to this job.” Because of her unique working position, Erin didn’t have to choose between a corporate career and being a mom. “I’m extraordinarily lucky. I love my job and working in a corporate setting, but because we live in Newnan, I can’t see myself having to give up so much time for my children just so I can commute back and forth to Atlanta. It’s not fair as a parent. You miss so much of what’s happening with your kids. You’re only seeing them on the weekends.” So how does a married couple handle working and living under the same roof? Kent has fielded the query so many times at this point. “It’s always ‘Oh my gosh, you

Senoia’s water needs grow along with town By SARAH FAY CAMPBELL sarah@newnan.com

If Senoia wants to continue to grow, the city needs more water. C u r r e n t l y, t h e c i t y ’s water system does fine in the winter, early spring and late fall. But during the hot and dry times, it has to buy water from the Coweta County Water and Sewerage Authority. The city’s water plant can treat twice the amount of water it currently treats, if it had the supply. The city is currently limited by its permit that only allows 300,000 gallons a day to be withdrawn from the reservoir on Keg Creek. City Administrator Richard Ferry and the Senoia Cit y Cou nci l d iscussed options at Monday’s council meeting. The city currently has an agreement with the Coweta Wa t e r a n d S e w e r a g e Authority to use the authority’s water when needed, but there is no contract.

The Coweta County Board of Commissioners voted to grant a temporary certificate of occupancy to Euro Auctions USA for its upcoming opening auction at the north Coweta property, but commissioners expressed displeasure Tuesday that nobody with the

company had formally requested permission to move forward. The European equipment auction company purchased the old Adesa auto auction property on Raymond Hill Road along Interstate 85 last fall, and has scheduled its first auction for June 26. But there is work that needs to be done on the property before it is considered up to code.

‘Murder in Coweta County’ movie producer to speak at events

Two nights of planned activities will take place July 10-11 as the city of Newnan and Coweta County partner to celebrate the story of “Murder in Coweta County,” which aired on CBS television network 31 years ago. According to Coweta County events services coordinator Tray Baggarly, on July 10 at 7 p.m. in the historic 1904 Court-

house in downtown Newnan, one of the movie’s producers, Dick Atkins, will give a presentation and talk about what went into turning local author Margaret’s Anne Barnes’ book into a made-for-TV movie starring Andy Griffith and Johnny Cash. In addition, several local residents will display memorabilia they have associated with

the movie, and some who were extras in the production will talk about their experiences. The next evening, July 11, at 7 p.m. at the Carnegie Library on the Court Square, Atkins will talk about the production of the movie, followed by a screening of the movie. “Murder in Coweta County” is the true story of a brutal mur-

der that took place in 1948 and pitted John Wallace of Meriwether County against Coweta County Sheriff Lamar Potts. The trial was the first in Georgia in which a white man was convicted on the testimony of black witnesses. The trial was held in the second floor courtroom at the Coweta County courthouse, and the guilty ver-

dict was read there on June 18, 1948 – 65 years ago this week. Light refreshments will follow both of the July events and there is no charge to attend. For more information, contact the Coweta County Convention & Visitors Bureau at 770-254-2627 or the Carnegie Library at 770-683-1347.
