Shepherd Brian Cash reshapes land management in the South By Clay Neely

Clay@newnan.com

I’m riding to a pasture on the outskirts of Luthersville with Brian Cash. The Ford-350 Cash drives tows an animal trailer filled with 30 sheep and two dogs. We hop out of the truck making our way to the back of the trailer where Cash opens the doors. The sheep slowly pour out, bells clanging, while Cash whistles to Kyle, the Border collie, to lie down. “They’re the best employees you’ll ever meet,” he says referenc i n g Kyle . “ T hei r e nt hu si a s m c a n b e a bit overwhelming.” Kyle eagerly herds the flock into the field and soon the sheep are safely in the pasture, Cash closing the door behind us. The heat is in full force this afternoon, a blunt reminder that summer is still in session. We make our way to the side of the pasture, into the shade. “So what would you like to know?” asks Cash. It turns out that this modern day shepherd is actually a native of the Atlanta suburb of Dunwoody. He’s the son

of two very patient parents whose child dreamed of one day being a farmer. As the years passed, Cash’s enthusiasm never waned, only increasing with each new duck, chicken, goat, pig, sheep, and quail that found a way into their house. “In those days, you couldn’t

have a chicken in Atlanta. Nowadays, we have the great ‘farm-to-table’ movement and people are bringing chickens back to city. Almost everyone I meet on the job has a chicken coup in their backyard. I love it.” His enthusiasm continued all the way into high school,

All a sheep wants to do is eat. Every other obstacle supersedes it.”

when his dreams met head-on with a bemused high school guidance counselor. “You want to be a farmer?” “Yes.” “You really need to take things a little more seriously,

Family creates foundation in honor of daughter By Bradley Hartsell bradley@newnan.com

“She was bigger than life. She loved everything. Always wanted to be on the go. She was very expressive. We don’t want that to end, we want to continue that. ” Natalie Bacho explains the spirit behind Abby’s Angels, her family’s foundation in honor of her late daughter, Abby, that began in earnest last month. On Dec. 22, 2012, a truck driven by a teenager sped through a red light, smashing into the side of the Bacho van, driven by Natalie and carrying the Bacho family plus Abby’s grandfather. Stephen and Natalie were air-flighted to Atlanta hospitals. The others were taken to the local Piedmont Newnan Hospita l . Stephen wa s i n an induced coma for several weeks and has since recovered well, but daughter Abby was taken off life support on Christmas Day. The family donated her organs. She was 9 years old. Nat a l ie B acho says t he seeds for the foundation were planted while in the hospital with Abby during those last few days. “We had an unbelievable amount of support from the community,” says Bacho. “We wanted to be able to give back and show our appreciation for everything that was done for us.” Over time, the family continued to develop ideas for the foundation but didn’t know what how to proceed. “I knew we had to do something, as a family, to help other people, so that Abby’s life didn’t simply end — people would know who she was, helping other children and families in the process.” Abby loved to play school. She would be the teacher wh i le her you nger sister, Cha rlotte, a nd her neig hbor formed her class. In that spirit, the Bachos arrived at an idea. Young children love getting new school supplies every year. The Bachos know that

Brian,” the counselor said. “You need to figure out a real career.” “It was like ‘well, thanks for telling me it’s an impossibility,” laughs Cash. I m m e d i a t e l y fol l ow i n g

his graduation in 1998, Cash headed straight to the interior of Alaska in search of adventure. “I just thought it would be fun to go race sled dogs,” he says. “I only planned to stay there six months but wound up staying four years.” C a s h e ve n t u a l l y fo u n d himself in northern California,

there are families unable to afford those things, especially the more expensive items like zebra-striped notebooks, for instance, that may make a difference in how excited a child is about learning. “Abby’s Closet” is a space in local schools designated and stocked throughout the year with school supplies. The program doesn’t want to bring attention to children who can’t have these things, hence the idea of a closet. A contact from each school will oversee the closet and teachers will be the eyes and ears for the students they think would benefit from the closet. In addition to Abby’s Closet, Natalie Bacho’s niece began making bracelets for the family while they stayed at Natalie’s sister’s home. The bracelets spearheaded a fundraiser that would hopefully lead to oppor t u n ities li ke Abby ’s Closet. Her sister put a picture of the bracelets on the Abby’s

Angels Facebook page and the project went wild. People from California ordered. One even found its way to a child in Africa. Abby’s Angels has sold more than 500 bracelets. “It’s a sign of our faith and a representation of Abby so that she stays present,” explains Bacho, calling it a labor of love. Because of their experience with Abby, one that was deeply saddening but one Bacho says t hey wou ld absolutely do again, the family also stresses organ donation. “We hope to be a bridge of support to donor families of pediatric patients. After being in that situation personally, we want to reach out to these families and let them know they aren't alone in their decision to give life and also in their grief of their child. The foundation would also like to raise awareness of organ donation if the unthinkable should ever happen to another family,” Bacho explains.

Two week s ago m a rked the official launch of Abby’s Closet in Newnan Crossing Elementary, where Abby was a fourth-grader. School counselor and Abby’s Closet supervisor at Newnan Crossing, Jennifer Kennemur, says she took her first child to the closet the next morning. Kennemur was Abby’s science teacher last year and is excited and honored to be a part of the program, both for how important it is to the Bachos and how it will impact the students. The foundation is looking into middle schools for its next school because as students get older they become more independent both in their own attitudes and through the handling of teachers, and may feel more alienated without a resource for new school supplies. Abby’s Angels continues to look forward, as do the Bachos, with help from Abby’s memory and the foundation’s promise to help others. “ It ’s somet h i ng we feel strongly about and that we have to do. And it brings us closer to Abby in the process.” Anyone wishing to make contributions to the foundation can do so by writing a check to the NCF with a memo in care of Abby’s Angels Foundation. The NCF address is 11625 Rainwater Dr., Alpharetta, GA 30009. All proceeds go directly to Abby’s Angels. Anyone interested in sponsoring or volunteering to the 5k family fun day, email 3sisters@abbysangelsfoundation.org for more information.

Cyclists from last year’s annual ride benefiting The Ferst Foundation for Childhood Literacy.

The Ferst Foundation for Childhood Literacy will host a fundraising bicycle ride in Moreland Oct. 6 at 8 a.m. The ride begins at the Moreland Mill with ride lengths optional (12, 25, 62 and 100 mile rides). On-site registration the day of the event will be $35. Lunch is included at the end of the race to every rider. Rest stops, refreshments and bike repair vehicles are available at certain intervals. For more information, email Nelda at nboren59@att.net or Linda at lbrass@ wspackaging.com. The Ferst Foundation addresses one of the most basic issues of childhood literacy — ensuring the availability of quality books for children in the home so that parents can read to their child. Books are delivered every month, up to 60 times in the child’s critical years of development. There is no cost to registered children in participating areas. The program is free to participating families and it is made possible through the partnership with local Community Action Teams (CATs). Funding for the program is organized through private donations, corporate sponsorships and grants. Interested parties with children under 5 are encouraged to contact the Ferst Foundation Program.

SMART SOLUTIONS, INC.

Who am I? I have been informed, officially, mind you, that I am not me. This has left me, let us say, slightly confused. But according to the United States Department of State, I am not me. In fact, I have an official letter, with the State Department emblem and all that, attesting to this fact. How did all this come about? I was simply trying (and failing obviously, as per the letter) to renew my passport. Now the State Department is, shall we say, rather particular about the photo one submits with their application. It must be taken within the last six months, 2X2 inches in overall size, between 1 inch and 1, 3/8 inches “from the top of the head to the bottom of the chin” and taken against a white or offwhite background. A few quest ion s f loated through my mind as I worked on the photo. Namely, how would they know if the photo wa s t a ken i n t he l a st si x months? Secondly, why not just between one inch and one and three-eighths inches. Why one and three-eighths inches? Typical government meddling. So I enlisted the help of our photographer, Jeff Leo (who is excellent, by the way), to help me out. We went through the instructions, got up against a white wall, measured it all out, etc., etc. etc. And then I mailed off the application. Here’s what I got a couple of

days ago: “Thank you for your recent passport application. The photograph you submitted is unacceptable because your facial expression is exaggerated and has altered your appearance.” Okay, so let’s think about that for a sec. How in the world does the State Department know my face is “exaggerated” and “altered” my appearance? Are they saying I have a fat face? Secondly, how do they even know what I look like? To everyone thinking the whole NSA spying debate is just a bunch of tinfoils freaking out, I politely disagree. So I head down to the local post office and explain my situation. And the very nice people behind the counter look at me like I’m crazy. I know they are getting ready to hit the panic button that sends in the SWAT team. I try again, explaining that the State Department says I’m not me and all I need is a photograph. They still don’t believe me so I show them the letter. And they start passing it around and shaking their heads and I’m pretty sure the consensus was “you’ve got to be kidding, right?” Alas, no. So they take pity on me and one of the workers takes me back and pulls out the official State Departmentapproved camera and takes my photo. And then she starts freaking out because — ­ is that a shadow? Is the background

white enough? — we take a lot of photos until she’s satisfied. So I take my new photos and write a nice note back to the State Department saying the photo really is me and I have

the full support and backing of the U.S. Postal Service, who took the photo. I even enclosed the photo receipt from the Post Office. Hopefully, the State Department will agree that I am me. Or at least a good resemblance of me. (John A. Winters is the general manager for The Newnan Times-Herald. Follow his adventures at justflipthedog.com. You can reach him at john@newnan. com)

Dawson Street Christian School opens new Newnan campus By Celia Shortt celia@newnan.com

A lber t Jackson III had a dream to expand the Dawson Street Christian School in LaGrange into Newna n. Recently, his dream became a reality. “Helping children has been instilled in me,” he said. “My family really pushed for education.” Dawson Street Ch ristia n School is a non-denominational Christian school originating in LaGrange. It is an extension of the ministry of the church Greater Bethlehem Temple. Jackson said the LaGrange campus buses kids in from all over, and he felt that Newnan would be a good market for a second campus. “ We love b ei n g here i n Cowet a Cou nt y,” he s a id . “ We ca n do a lmost ever ything we want to do here, and we can reach out in the local community.” Jackson’s family is an important part of his work at the school.

Shepherd Continued from page 1

training competitive dogs. It was there that he really began to see the working relationship between dogs and sheep. He also saw how the sheep were bei ng used to clea r la rge parcels of overgrown land instead of chemicals. “It’s a pretty common concept in California,” says Cash. “I thought it would be an awesome idea for Georgia, since there is no natural alternative to herbicides for kudzu eradication ­— and it’s faster.” Upon his return to Atlanta, Cash set up ‘Ewe-niversally Green.’ I m m e d i a t e l y, o n e j o b became many. Even with no advertising, Cash had 4,000 people on his waiting list by last July and now he’s staying out of Atlanta media to avoid more. Cash cu r rently employs 300 full-time sheep in metro Atlanta that travel from site to site. He uses 25 to 30 sheep for an eighth of an acre — usually a two-day job. Large-scale jobs call for around 60 to 100 in a group. La st yea r, Ca sh demonstrated a one-week trial run at Hartsfield-Jackson Airport to propose a way for year-round weed control for a 5,000-acre area. He has also worked in the city parks of metro Atlanta, backyards, and even kudzu and ivy removal for the Beltline Project in Atlanta. Cash touts his operation as being totally portable and using all sustainable resources. “Every aspect is mobile,” he says. He begins by implementing a solar-powered, temporary electric fence. Then he drops off the sheep, the guardian dog and the water. He visits the job site daily to feed the dog and check progress. “The homeowner gets to sit back and watch — and have the fun of having sheep in their backyard. The sheep tackle super-steep areas that would be almost impossible with machinery. Sheep love poison ivy and they chase yellow jackets and snakes away, too,”

boasts Cash. Once, a copperhead snake bit one of Cash’s sheep on the face. The vet said, “Don’t worry about it. Sheep are resistant.” And in 24 hours, it was like it never happened, Cash said. “All a sheep wants to do is eat,” says Cash. “Every other obstacle supersedes it.” Accord i ng to Ca sh , t he sheep can reach areas of up to 6 feet in height. There are a few exceptions, t hough. The sheep don’t like azaleas or vinca, and rhododendron is toxic to them. His flock is generationally bred so “they learn in utero which plants are good to eat and which aren’t,” he says. By storing information from their mother’s taste, their taste is finely-tuned with each subsequent generation. “The first generation didn’t really like English ivy, so I had to diversify with other food. But now the current generation loves ivy and can graze on it all winter,” says Cash. W hat about the maintenance of the sheep? By using a composite breed of Katahdin and Dorper sheep there is no shearing needed. “Also, the sheep are consta ntly being moved from place to place. So there is no need for dewormer as they’re going to places never inhabited by sheep prior to their arrival. As long as they have food, they’re fairly hands-off,” says Cash. And what about goats versus sheep? “We have a few goats, but I prefer the sheep,” Cash says. “The dog is tied in (with the sheep) and the sheep are so much easier to contain. The goats are generally looking for a way out. The sheep aren’t as demonstrative or creative as the goats, which makes life easier for me. Most of my problems are usually started by goats,” he laughs. And how do the dogs fit into the picture? Cash uses three breeds: Border collies to herd the sheep, and either an Anatolian Shepherd or Great Pyrenees for protection. They grow up with the sheep in the pasture and consider themselves great protectors. The dogs are aggressive against other outsider animals but not people. However, some

Cinnamon Oatmeal Bars Servings: 16 1 cup flour 1 cup old-fashioned oatmeal 3/4 cup light brown sugar 1/4 teaspoon salt 8 tablespoons butter, melted 1 cup Musselman’s Apple Butter

Pre-heat oven to 350°F. Coat an 8-inch by 8-inch baking pan with vegetable cooking spray. Line with heavyduty foil, leaving an overhang on two sides to facilitate removal of bars from pan. Coat foil with cooking spray. Mix flour, oatmeal, sugar and salt in medium bowl. Stir in butter with fork until well mixed and clumps form, and then spread half the oatmeal mixture over foiled pan bottom, pressing to form thin crust. Spread butter over crust and then sprinkle remaining oatmeal mixture on top. Bake until crisp and golden brown, 30 to 40 minutes. Cool to room temperature. Use foil “handles” to remove bars from pan. Cut into squares and serve.

dogs will have no interest in people whatsoever. They bond to the sheep as family. “If anything, I’m a good acquaintance to the dog,” says Cash. “At the end of the day, they go home to their family and I go home to mine.” This year marks his fourth herding since returning home from out West. “I remember when I said ‘I’m going to be a sheep herder in the city of Atlanta.’ My friends and family were a tad skeptical but I think they see how it has come together,” says Cash. And his experiences being an “urban shepherd” have been amusing and rewarding. “You don’t expect to see a f lock of 100 sheep walking down the road in West End or Buckhead, so you have to field quite a few questions. I’ll have someone ask me ‘What kind of cows are those? or What kind of sheep is that?’ and I have to tell them that it’s just the dog,” he laughs. “ I re a l ly wou ld l i ke to see the concepts of farming brought back to the city, helping children understand the food chain. Maybe there is the one kid in Atlanta who wants to be a farmer and maybe I can reach him,” says Cash. Prior to being hired by a horse fa rm nea r New na n, Cash had never even heard of

the area. “I drove down to Exit 47 and thought ‘that was that.’ I had no idea about Bullsboro or downtown Newnan. Once I did, I found a house immediately. I love the area; it still feels like a small town and it’s the best commute in the world to Atlanta.” Cash would like to see more work on this side of town. He recently purchased 31 acres in Luthersville where his nextdoor neighbors raise Black Angus cattle. After watching Cash and his flock work, they also now employ a Border collie and sheep. “The Stricklands are converts,” laughs Cash, referring to his neighbors. As we make our way back across the pasture, Cash whistles to Kyle who immediately begins to round up the herd. The sheep file past us, back into their trailer as Cash closes the gate behind them. Kyle opts to ride in the back. “ It ’s re a l ly co ol ,” Ca sh muses. “Every day I wake up and wonder ‘How did this all happen?’ It seems like an impossibility.”
