Coweta Fair runs Sept. 19-28 By Sarah Fay Campbell sarah@newnan.com

The Coweta County Fair is almost here. MegaPasses, which include unlimited rides any day of the fair, and gate admission are already on sale online and at local stores. The MegaPass is $25 and must be purchased before the fair begins. Typically, an unlimited ride armband is $25, and admission is $5. Additionally, arm bands aren't available on Friday and Saturday nights. This year's fair runs from Thursday, Sept. 19 to Saturday, Sept. 28 at the Coweta County Fairgrounds south of Newnan on Pine Road. Student passes, which are given to students at local schools, are good on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, and now will be accepted on Sunday. "We're gearing up," said Scott Cortner, fair chairman for the Newnan Kiwanis Club, which hosts the annual event. Ne w enter t a i n ment t h i s ye a r includes the Eudora Farms exotic animals and petting zoo, and a BMX show for the last five days of the fair. Returning entertainment includes Muttville Comix, the Torres Family Circus, and the Puppetone Rockers. Open Mike Atlanta and Competition Alley will return as well, and there will be local bands playing every night.

In addition to the midway rides and shows, food, and entertainment, there will be the classic county fair exhibits, including canned goods, cakes and pies, the finest veggies from the garden, arts and crafts, and horticultural and agricultural exhibits. T here's a categor y for a l most everything, in both youth and adult classes — and cash prizes. There will also be the 4-H livestock shows, various competitions — including the steak cook-off and egg prep contest, gingerbread and cake decorating — the always popular lumberjack competition, and even Master Gardener Family Feud. The Kiwanis Club takes the profits from the fair and reinvests the money in the community. "We're looking forward to another record year," said Cortner. And hoping for dry weather. "We think that we provide great entertainment for the money, a great opportunity and a place for families. And the weather needs to cooperate so we just keep praying," Cortner said. You can get more information at www.CowetaCountyFair.org. You can also get more information by calling the Coweta County Extension Office at 770-254-2620.

Newnan senior heads up charitable organization bradley@newnan.com

Usually when teenagers have a foundation in their name, it is unfortunately to honor them, not be run by them. Brandon Tennie, a senior at Newnan High School, is the rare exception. Tennie is a 17-year old who already understands the value of community. Tennie, with the help of his mother, Charsea Jones, set up BDCT, both an acronym for Tennie’s initials (Brandon Demario Charell Tennie) and the vision of the foundation, Blessings & Dreams Coming Together. Tennie says coming up with a name was the hardest part. Everything else came naturally, as he and his family sought a way for him to help out in the community. “I’ve always wanted to give back,” says Tennie, who firmly believes the more willing you are to help others, the more God will be willing to help you. The nonprofit organization is spirited by Philippians 4:19: “And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.” Last month, the BDCT held a Back to School Giveaway, which provided free backpacks and school supplies, to more than 100 kids at the Eastgate Apartments. The group is preparing for a Trunk-or-Treat event at Ruth Hill Elementary in October. The details for the event are still in the

works, according to Tennie. While Tennie’s schedule has become hectic between school and playing starting strong safety for the Cougars, Jones has taken to overseeing the day-to-day operations, along with finding sponsors for the organization. Tennie says, though, on the weekend, they make a point of sitting down together and discussing plans and ideas going forward. He gives his opinion and offers feedback, just like what they’re doing for Trunk-or-Treat. The BDCT even has plans looking ahead to the summer. Tennie wants to set up a two-day camp with football, basketball and baseball and awards. Though the plans are tenuous at this time, it’s refreshing to see a longterm vision from Tennie. While the focus is on local kids for now, Tennie wants to expand to incorporate everyone in the community, from young to old. “I’m just out here making a difference, for everybody,” Tennie asserts, who punctuates his answers with “sir” and “ma’am.” “I want to make a change.” Tennie certainly has plenty of family support to keep the organization running smoothly, but it all falls apart without the commitment of a special young man. Maybe not every high schooler can start an organization, but every one of them can look to Tennie’s example of responsibility, community and dedication.

SANDWICH Family Features

Returning to a school or work routine is bittersweet. Schedules and agendas don’t have to be boring, though, when your lunch routine is anything but. Run-of-the-mill PB&J and turkey and cheese standbys are making way for a new hero: gourmet sandwich creations that inspire envy. Craveable ingredients, like savory green olives, peppery salami and smoky roasted tomatoes can be lunch staples with these delicious recipes. Skip those weekday blues and mix up your lunch with a layer of excitement.

Makes Great Meal Any Way You Stack It Weekday lunch breakers rejoice — the sandwich is making a comeback. Kick-start your lunch routine with these easy tips and craveable recipes that are sure to inspire lunch envy: Prep the Week: Create a shopping list based on your week’s menu, and prep your ingredients in advance so creating a delicious sandwich is easy.

Spread the Love: Spice things up with a

Smoked Bacon Ranch or Spicy Chipotle Pepper Sandwich Spread & Dip — it’s a simple addition and guar­anteed to be tasty. Nibble Ready: Stock your fridge with quick, grab-and-go snacks and sides. Fresh vegetables are a tasty treat when dipped in Country Herb Ranch or Oven Roasted Garlic Parmesan Sandwich Spread & Dip.

Yesterday’s roast chicken is today’s tasty Chicken Bacon Club.

Finding T.R. Cone A couple of weeks ago, The Newnan Times-Herald printed a letter from a Mr. T.R. Cone. He was rather distressed and reached out to the newspaper for help. Turns out he was guarding a rather dangerous rut alongside Happy Valley Circle and needed some backup. The newspaper also ran a photo of Mr. Cone guarding the trench. A couple of days ago I drove past the spot where I waved to Mr. Cone every morning and evening and noticed he was gone. And the trench was repaired. I tried desperately to track Mr. Cone down, but to no avail. I finally reached out to Patricia Palmer and Tom Corker with Coweta County’s Community and Human Resources Department, and they graciously helped me uncover the saga of Mr. Cone. “Unfortunately, Mr. Cone is on a spherical adventure over the holiday weekend and is unavailable for interview. How-

ever, he did take time to send a letter explaining what led up to his reaching out to the NTH,” Corker said. “Please note that we were not aware of Mr. Cone’s actions until August 25th. Within 24 hours, we were on the scene correcting the problem. Please encourage all citizens who may see stray cones standing guard to contact us so we can address the situation.” Following is Mr. Cone’s latest letter: Dear Editor, First, I want to apologize if I got anyone in the County Road Department in any sort of trouble. I was not then an official County Cone. At the time I submitted my letter, there was a lot of conical stress in my life … in fact, you could say I was very close to a conic section.

state. Do you realize how hard it is to have large vehicles flying by you at excessively high rates of speed, especially when you have three little strobili at home? It is physically draining to have your life pass before your circumference every few minutes. It was to the point that it was causing really strained relations at home with the little black-draped cone. It was because of all this that I decided I had to make a change; I had to step out of the stack, so to speak. That is when I decided I would try to make a name for myself, impress those who really appreciate the cone and what it can do, and I was hoping for a simpler life. I took to my I-Cone and began searching for places I would be better appreciated and feel that I would have a higher purpose in life. That is when I found the Coweta County Road Department. From what I could find, CCRD cares about its roadways and does its best to make sure they are safe. And then, to my astonishment, I found a satellite image of a spot that had been overlooked, a dangerous

gouging of the earth that could pose a hazard to those traveling the roadway. I knew this was my chance. I jumped into that deep crevasse and began what I hoped would be my new mission in life. I was hoping my action would be recognized as outstanding, a conoidal vertex, if you will. I was optimistic that this would earn me my lettering … I would become a CCRD cone! However, I did not realize that this time of year, the road department forces are spread thin resurfacing streets and roads and cutting the rights-ofway before the winter months set in. So I sat, never doubting my actions. And then, on August 25th , I was noticed. Like a beacon shining from my depression of desperation, I was noticed. Then, on August 26th my world changed forever! The Coweta Cou nt y Road D epa r t ment pulled up alongside, plucked me from my protective stance and filled in the Happy Valley chasm. And I was placed on the back of the truck, recognized for my efforts by becoming a

ing the blinds drawn 24-7 to make sure no one reported a Sasquatch sighting to Discovery Channel. If you want to know what the coming winter has in store, ju mp i n t he ca r a nd d r ive around. If you see a long-haired cat whose coat has gone into overdrive, pile up some extra firewood.

But don’t panic. If it gets cold this winter, slip on the Snuggie and enjoy it. And remember, cold weather has its advantages. A hard freeze can kill insect la r vae a nd keep the spring mosquito count down. Better yet, this winter might be cold enough to make Miley Cyrus keep her clothes on. If that’s the case, bring it on.

cone-in-training … me, who just days before was just another obstacle on t he interstate, became a county cone. I have not yet earned my lettering, but I continue to proudly serve the citizenry of Coweta

Coweta Cattlemen’s Association to host steak cook-off at county fair By Bradley Hartsell bradley@newnan.com

The Coweta County Cattlemen’s Association will be hosting the Cattlemen’s Steak Cook-Off at the Coweta County Fair on Saturday, Sept. 28. Summer is when the Cattlemen’s Association thrives, sharing their passion for cattle production and, namely, the beef they produce. In July, Cattlemen members participated in the All American Beef Battalion in Fort Benning, which serves a free steak meal to soldiers and their dependents. The Coweta Cattlemen group joined other volunteers from Georgia, as well as Alabama, to cook nearly 3,000 ribeyes to feed the 75th Ranger Regiment and their families. “[The Beef Battalion] is a very humbling experience,” says Coweta Cattlemen’s President Robert Allen. “The young [men] are very appreciative and really enjoy it. They’re just really professional soldiers.” The Steak Cook-Off will allow grilling enthusiasts to compete for the right to say they cook the best steak in Coweta County. The $250 winning prize isn’t bad, either. The Cattlemen’s Association will provide the

steaks but contestants are to bring their own grills. The contest is open to anyone over the age of 10, so long as they are not professional chefs, work in food service or distribution, or work for a national or state beef industry organization. All entries must be original recipes. The grilling will begin at 6 p.m. and food must be off the grill by 6:30. The judging takes place at 7. Sixty points are allotted for taste, 10 for ease of preparation, and 30 for presentation. The Coweta County Cattlemen’s Association has sought to promote cattle production throughout Western Georgia since 1949. The Coweta Chapter is made up of about 125 volunteers who are passionate about the preservation of livestock and agriculture. Its offices are located at 255 Pine Road in Newnan. They recently launched a new website at www. cowetacattlemens.com. They can be contacted at 770-254-2620. Pre-registration for the Cattlemen’s Steak Cook-Off must be completed by Friday, Sept. 13. The Cook-Off will be held at the pavilion behind the fairgrounds exhibit hall. For more information, go to cowetacountyfair.org/exhibits.php or call Marcia Callaway at 770-583-5688.

PERIPHERAL NEUROPATHY If You Suffer From A Single One Of These Torturous Symptoms — Numbness, Tingling, Burning or Sharp Nerve Pain In Your Feet — DESPITE WHAT MANY DOCTORS MAY TELL YOU, PERIPHERAL NEUROPATHY CAN BE EFFECTIVELY TREATED

Peripheral Neuropathy affects every part of your life — walking, sleeping, socializing, sometimes even sitting and so much more.

Ask Yourself These 5 Questions:

If you have tried “everything” (Lyrica®, Neurotin®, physical therapy, orthotics for your shoes, even injections) without getting the lasting results you want then you may be the perfect candidate for my Neuropathy Program. There is a simple reason that these treatments fail… because they are only covering up the symptoms. They do not address the root cause of your Peripheral Neuropathy. We all know this to be true. There is a tremendous difference between covering up your symptoms and actually fixing the underlying problem. Why settle for “band-aid” care, when you could potentially correct the problem?

The Single Most Important Solution To Your Neuropathy Has Been Years in the Making… It cost me thousands of dollars and countless hours away from my family, researching, reading, talking with experts in the scientific community and racking my brain in order to create a “No-Holds Barred”, exceedingly effective Neuropathy Recovery Program. Finally my Neuropathy program is available to you. And the best news is that the principles of my Neuropathy Recovery Program work with both diabetic and nondiabetic types of neuropathy. How does my Neuropathy Program work? Quite simply, by finding the TRUE cause of your Neuropathy and then having the “know-how” on how to remove that cause. Every patient’s case of Neuropathy will be different, so I don’t have the space here to go into more details. That is why I am offering a Special Evaluation in order to see if you can be helped with my Neuropathy Recovery Program. My patients know my insider secrets to recovery. They have already received their individualized Neuropathy Recovery Program and are having amazing results. Here is what they are saying: “This is the first time in many years that I have been able to feel my feet.” -Ben Hollis

As Seen On Atlanta & Company on 11Alive

“I have suffered from severe neuropathy in both feet for close to 10 years. My previous doctors said it was due to my Diabetes and that I would just have to live with it. After reading about Dr. Dunn, I went to go see him. I’ve completed the treatment plan that he outlined and am happy to say that I am finally symptom free.” — Bill Schwartz “Before seeing Dr. Dunn, the neuropathy in my feet was so bad that I couldn’t even drive a car. Now, I can drive myself to get groceries and go to Wal-Mart whenever I want to. Dr. Dunn truly gave me my life back.” — Mary Jenkins “After the first treatment, I noticed an immediate improvement. For the first time in many years, I was actually able to sleep through the night without my feet waking me up.” — Susie Sayer

1. Do you feel like you’re wearing an invisible “sock” over your feet? 2. Does it feel like you are stepping on thumb tacks? 3. Are you extremely sensitive to touch… Burning, Freezing or electric “shocks” into your legs or feet? 4. Are you experiencing Numbness, Tingling, Loss of Feeling or even Weakness in your legs or feet? 5. Are you starting to have balance problems now because of your feet? If you answered “YES” to any of these questions, chances are you may have Peripheral Neuropathy. If you’ve been suffering for a while and you’re tired of treatments that only give you temporary relief, then I may have the answer you’ve been waiting and hoping for. Remember, this Special Offer is only good until the 27th of September. Call today 770-450-4541 and we can get you scheduled for your consultation and exam as soon as there’s an opening. When you call, tell Kathy you’d like to come in for my Neuropathy Recovery Evaluation so she can make sure you receive proper credit for this special offer.

Now let me say this, I am not promising that I can cure everyone. I don’t even know if you qualify for my program. That is yet to be determined, and requires a thorough exam and review of your history.

Sincerely,

I know that you’ve been promised the moon and stars before and nobody has delivered the goods.

P.S. See Dr. Dunn interviewed about Neuropathy on 11Alive Morning and hear him on 95.5 FM “WSB”

That’s why I’m offering you a risk-free introduction to this program. For a limited time you will receive my Qualifying Examination Special for only $47 if you call before September 27, 2013.

Correct Diagnosis + Correct Treatment = Best Results Possible and Relief. If you are tired of the institutionalized medical merry-go -round of cover up care, then you need to try my program. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

Dr. Matt Dunn, D.C.

The Newnan Times-Herald Celebrates 148 Years

Newspaper’s origin dates back to end of Civil War Several publications combined over 148 years By W. WINSTON SKINNER winston@newnan.com Coweta County’s local daily newspaper was formed through the combining of two older newspapers. The Newnan Herald was a Coweta institution for 70 years before The Newnan Times was established. The papers were competitors for a decade before they were combined. The Newnan Herald was founded by two attorneys, J.S. Bigby and J.C. Wootten, and the first issue came off the presses on Sept. 9, 1865 — exactly five months after the Civil War ended. The fourpage weekly — the first paper started in Georgia after the Civil War — cost $3 per year and was published on Saturday. Soon after the first Herald hit the streets, Bigby — who became active in local politics — sold his interest in the paper to James A. Welch. Following the deaths of Welch and Wootten, the Herald was edited by A.B. Cates, a native of Tennessee and a Confederate veteran. Cates ran the Herald until late 1886 or early 1887 when the Herald consolidated with the Coweta Advertiser, which had been published by W.W. Wadsworth, a Methodist minister. After the merger of the Herald and Wadsworth’s journal, the newspaper became known as The Herald and Advertiser. James E. Brown, who later became known as Judge Brown after his appointment as a U.S. Commissioner, became editor. He served for four decades and was known for his insightful editorials. Brown was born in Marion County in 1854. Before coming to Newnan, he founded the Henry County Weekly in 1877. “Coweta County Chronicles” related that Brown served as editor there until 1886 when he came to Newnan as editor

of the Advertiser, coming to the Herald and Advertiser after the merger. Brown married a Newnan woman, Kate Milner, in 1883. In 1912, Brown sold the Herald and Advertiser to Rhodes McPhail “after having guided its fortunes for nearly 25 years,” according to “Chronicles.” The sale, however, did not last. “The Herald people wanted James E. Brown and James E. Brown wanted to return to his accustomed place — which he did with Ellis M. Carpenter as an assistant,” the county history reported. In 1915, the Herald and Advertiser absorbed another rival, the Newnan News, and the paper again became known as the Newnan Herald. “Chronicles” reported, “The owners of the News are part owners of the Herald, and the owners of the Herald happy to have devoured a troublesome rival.” Among those serving as business manager during Brown’s tenure were Edgar T. Whatley, Thomas S. Parrott and Oren William Passavant. Passavant also served as editor in 1911 and 1912 in Brown’s absence. Passavant purchased the paper on Brown’s retirement in 1928, serving as editor until 1936. In 1933 the paper was cited for honorable mention in editorial competition. Passavant, who was born in Uniontown, Pa., in 1882, came to Newnan to live in 1906 and married Edgar Means North. The news staff in the early 1930s consisted of Passavant and a young woman named Roberta Lyndon, later Roberta Mayes of Atlanta. “I worked from 1934 until 1936 — when I came to Atlanta,” Mayes recalled in a 1988 interview. “I was a little of everything. Mr. Passavant didn’t have a large staff,” Mayes said. She remembered Passavant as “a

marvelous person to work for.” In 1936, Passavant sold the paper to Hanson G. Ford. During the four years that Ford operated the Herald, his wife, Dorothy Gardner Ford, a descendant of Newnan’s Cole family, took an active role in the newspaper’s operations. In 1940, Ford sold the paper to George M. MacNabb and Victor D. Armstrong. Armstrong soon left to serve in the armed forces, and MacNabb continued as editor and business manager until 1946. Miss Sarah Parrott worked with MacNabb at the Herald. “It was during the war years,” she said in 1988, describing the late MacNabb as “an intelligent young man.” She recalled, “It was difficult during the war. It was hard to get paper to begin with.” Ink was also rationed. A small staff of no more than five put out the newspaper. “We did everything ourselves,” Parrott remembered. Wiley Long was among the employees during those years. The paper achieved renown from others in the newspaper field under MacNabb’s leadership. The Herald received several awards from the Georgia Press Association, including first place for best editorial and best news coverage in 1944. The Newnan Herald had been born in the aftermath of one war and entered a new era as World War II came to a close. In October 1946, the Herald was acquired from MacNabb by Evan W. Thomasson and James J. Thomasson, publishers of the Newnan Times. James Thomasson and his wife, Emeline Cheney Thomasson, and E. W. Thomasson and his wife, Betty Clay Thomasson, came to Coweta County from Carrollton, Ga., in 1935. E. W. Thomasson’s fa-

ther, J. J. Thomasson, was also a newspaper publisher. “Throughout the western part of the State of Georgia the name of Thomasson has come to be prominently identified with newspaper publishing,” noted “The History of Georgia,” published by the American Historical Association in 1938. The first issue of The Newnan Times was published March 12, 1936. Emeline Thomasson died later that year. In 1938, James Thomasson married Newnan native Ida Askew. Ida Thomasson was involved in the newspaper for years, working as an editor and writing a popular weekly column, “Personally Speaking.” James Thomasson died in 1979, and Ida Thomasson died in 1981. Their son, William W. “Billy” Thomasson, is president and owner of The Newnan Times- Herald today. The Newnan Times and The Newnan Herald were published separately for about a year after the Thomassons bought the Herald. The first issue of The Newnan TimesHerald was published on Dec. 24, 1947. The newspaper has gone through many changes since that first issue — growing from weekly to bi-weekly to daily, becoming a pioneer in the use of color photography and now entering the digital age with a strong online presence.

This is how the “back shop” of the Newnan Herald looked in 1919. At right rear is a Model 14 Linotype machine purchased in 1917. The printer, Claude Pitts, is at far left. O.W. Passavant, second from right, was editor of the Herald from 1928-1936.

The Newnan Times-Herald Celebrates 148 Years

The Newnan Herald was a Coweta institution for 70 years before The Newnan Times was established. The papers were competitors for a decade before they were combined.

Times-Herald marks milestones through years 1865 — On Sept. 9, 1865, The Newnan Herald’s first issue is published by lawyers J. S. Bigby and J. C. Wootten as a sideline. The four-page weekly cost $3 per year in advance and came out on Saturday. It was the first post-Civil War newspaper started in Georgia. Soon after, Bigby — who became active in local politics — sold his interest to James A. Welch. 1886-1887 — After the deaths of Welch and Wootten, The Herald is edited by A. B. Cates, a Tennessee native and Confederate veteran. In 1886 or 1887 it is merged with the rival Coweta Advertiser, which had been published by First Methodist pastor, W. W. Wadsworth.

1915 — The Herald and Advertiser absorbs another rival, the Newnan News, and the paper again becomes known as the Newnan Herald. 1928 — Oren William Passavant, who had been editor of the Herald and Advertiser in 1911-1912 in Brown’s absence, purchases the paper on Brown’s retirement. Passavant has been one of several business managers during Brown’s tenure, as were Edgar T. Whatley and Thomas S. Parrott.

1936 — Passavant sells the paper to Hanson G. Ford. During the four years he operated the Herald, Ford’s wife Dorothy Gardner Ford, a descendant of the Cole family, took an active role in the newspaper. — Also in 1936, Evan W. Thomasson and his son James J. Thomasson start the rival Newnan Times.

1887 — James E. Brown, who was editor of the Advertiser in 1886 — after almost 10 years at the Henry County Weekly which he founded — becomes editor of the merged Herald and Advertiser.

1940 — Ford sells the Newnan Herald to George M. MacNabb and Victor D. Armstrong. Armstrong soon leaves to serve in the armed forces, and MacNabb continues as editor and business manager.

1912 — Brown sells the Herald and Advertiser to Rhodes McPhail, but the arrangement does not last and Brown returns with Ellis M. Carpenter as assistant.

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 it 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.

pages are now converted to PDF documents and transmitted electronically from the offices at 16 Jefferson Street to the newspaper’s printing facilities in Newnan South Industrial Park.

Continued from page 9

2011 — In June, Georgia Press Association names James Thomasson posthumously to the Georgia Newspaper Hall of Fame. At the same meeting on Jekyll Island, newspaper owner William W. “Billy” Thomasson is honored for 50 years in the newspaper industry.

on Andrews Street is upgraded to allow the printing of two extra color pages in each newspaper section, providing the option for more color pictures for news columns and the availability of color for advertisers.

— In July, a new and improved website photo gallery at www. times-herald.com is launched through MyCapture, offering more options for photographs and products.

2003 — In spring and summer 2003, The Times-Herald adds a new color unit to its press facilities on Andrews Street to expand color printing capacity, as well as a new paper folding unit on the press. The new equipment allows more pages inside the paper to have full process color photos and advertisements.

— On Sept. 9, 2011, the newspaper changes its masthead to read The Newnan Times-Herald – the name used by the newspaper for many years before it began daily publication. A new digital edition, created in conjunction with Tecnavia Press and with new program features, is rolled out at www.times-herald.com.

— Sept. 24, 2003, the first section is printed after the switch to the smaller 50-inch “web” newsprint size. The first edition in the smaller format, with some design changes, is debuted Friday, Sept. 26, 2003.

— In March 2012 The Newnan Times-Herald switches to a new publishing system using InDesign for pagination and a web-based product for creating news stories. With reporters and editors issued laptop computers, they are able to be more mobile — no longer tied to their newsroom desks.

2005 — On Feb. 18, 2005, it is announced The Times-Herald had purchased Newnan-Coweta Magazine from Chad and Monica Watkins. Longtime newspaper staff member Angela Webster was named editor of the magazine. — September 2005, The Times-Herald adds two four-color press units manufactured by Web Press Corporation.

—In online developments, the newspaper adds Facebook and Twitter accounts, provides Coupons.com and an improved photo gallery for online readers, adds the newspaper’s My Connection publication to online offerings and reintroduces a website for its bimonthly publication Newnan-Coweta Magazine at newnancowetamag.com.

2006 — The newspaper’s former popular summer Newcomers’ Guide is transformed, published in August in a magazine format as “Coweta Living.” Subsequent editions have followed. 2008 — July brings the move of the newspaper’s production facilities from Andrews Street to Newnan South Industrial Park off U.S. Highway 29 South. The July 14, 2008, edition is the first printed at the new building.

—2013, Sam Jones, who oversaw the transformation of The Newnan Times-Herald from a bi-weekly to a daily newspaper, retires March 22, 2013. Jones came to the Times-Herald as publisher on Nov. 1, 1996. After almost a year of preparation, the newspaper began publishing as a daily on Oct. 1, 1997.

— A revamped version of The Times-Herald online at times-herald.com debuts with a new look and increased content.

—John A. Winters in April 2013 is named as interim general manager of The Newnan Times-Herald, and soon after is named general manager. Winters, a 25-year veteran of the newspaper industry, has worked at The Newnan Times-Herald for the past yearand-a-half in the news department covering government and public safety issues and writing features and columns.

— Technological improvements allow submission of print subscription payments as well as classified advertising via the website. Customer interaction with stories and opinions begins with moderated reader “comments” and the daily “QuickVote.” — Times-Herald.com adds a digital version of special sections produced by The Times-Herald such as the annual Football Preview, High School Honors Days, Vision, Year In Review, Bridal and Health Connection.

—The Newnan Times-Herald and the newspaper’s website times-herald.com undergo major design changes adding content and more timely online news coverage. Also receiving a makeover is the newspaper’s Newnan-Coweta Magazine, with Times-Herald Paginator Will Blair taking over duties editing the bi-monthly magazine, and Graphic Designers Sandra Hiser and Sonya Studt taking over as Creative Directors.

2009 — The mobile version— m.times-herald. com — is introduced for readers to get their news, sports, opinion, etc., on the go from anywhere with a web-enabled mobile phone. 2010 — An electronic direct-to-plate system replaces the process of sending pages first to film that required chemical developing.

E. Coweta, consortium recognized for work with STEM By Celia Shortt celia@newnan.com

East Coweta High School and the Coweta STEM Consortium have been recognized for their work to advance student achievement in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) and are finalists for the annual STEM Education Awards. “We have encouraged our students — elementary, middle and high school — to really emphasize and innovate when it comes to the STEM disciplines,” said Coweta County School System Superintendent Dr. Steve Barker. “It’s important for the future workforce. We’re working to make sure we’re preparing our students for those jobs.” East Coweta High School was named as one of six finalists for best STEM high school in Georgia. The Coweta STEM Consortium is a coalition of nine Coweta businesses that offer internships to Coweta County high school students in STEM-related fields. The consortium was named as one of seven finalists in the award program’s Business Outreach category. “Our business communities have partnered with us well,” said Barker. “It was nice for those businesses that partner with us to be recognized in that way.” The annual STEM Awards were created by the Technology Association of Georgia (TAG) and the TAG Education Collaborative (TAG-Ed) to recognize and celebrate schools, extracurricular programs, public-private partnerships, science agencies and post-secondary education outreach programs in STEM education. Selection as a finalist for the annual awards recognizes leading initiatives and schools in Georgia that promote student achievement and support of science, technology, engineering, and math education in Georgia. The winners for each award category will be announced in September. East Coweta High School was nominated for a STEM Award this year based on the school’s sponsorship of several innovative STEM programs including East Coweta’s “Math and Science Academy,” the school’s Science Olympiad Team and efforts to expand student participation in STEM internships and STEM-related coursework. ECHS chemistry teacher Martha Milam said the high school’s teachers and administrators are strongly involved in the development of STEM academic content and student opportunities. The school’s focus has increased

student STEM participation significantly. “I have taught at East Coweta High School for six years and in that short time I have seen dramatic improvement in all of our academics including STEM,” said Milam.

“We offer a total of 17 AP courses and these classes are filling. The faculty has raised the expectation level we have for students, and students have risen to the challenge.” “As another example, last year I taught 16 students in AP
