Teacher uses stability balls in class Ruth Hill instructor creatively channels students’ energy By Celia Shortt celia@newnan.com

Fi rst- g raders h ave a lot of energy, and Ruth Hill Elementary first grade teacher Rebecca Craver has found a creative way to help channel that energy — her students use stability balls instead of chairs. “I have 24 kids in here, and every student is with me,” she said. “These balls engage them so much better than a chair.” Craver initially discovered this use of stability balls while researching alternative ways to help attention issues in the classroom. Her research led her to the company WittFitt, which was founded by a former teacher and focuses on learning in motion and integrating stability balls in the classroom. Craver attended training classes offered by WittFitt. Once the classes were completed, she brought the balls into the classroom, beginning the new concept about a month after school began. “I made sure the kids understood these were not bouncy balls, they were chairs,” she said. “They had to earn the right to sit on them.”

Mrs. Craver’s first graders enjoy using stability balls in the classroom. Pictured here from left are, Jamari Freeman, Isabelle Sexton, and Jordan Crumbley.

Not surprisingly, Craver’s students have come to love the alternative to the typical classroom chair. Lily Mayner thinks they are better than chairs because she can bounce on them and it forces her to sit “straight up.” Her favorite part is when Mrs. Craver plays songs during free

time, allowing the children to bounce a little while sitting on the balls. Jada Wilkes also likes being able to bounce with the balls. “I like to bounce,” she said. “We can do exercise on them. She (Mrs. Craver) puts on music, and we can bounce a little.”

The kids also have rules for using the balls. First, their feet have to be on the floor at all times. Second, their bottoms have to be on the ball. Third, their backs have to be straight. Last, they are asked to look on

Benefit for kidney patient

Shaderecka Grier loves pink, likes to blow bubbles and has a yen for books about Spongebob Squarepants. The 7-year-old second-grader sings in the Sunbeam Choir and is part of the Praise Dance team at Zion Hill Baptist Church near Luthersville. Shaderecka has lots of family and friends who love her — and she needs a new kidney.

About 75 people came to the Luthersville Municipal Complex on Sept. 19 to take part in a walk-a-thon to raise funds for Shaderecka’s kidney transplant. Shaderecka’s mother Shamika Hines will be donating one of her kidneys. Mother and daughter both took part in the walking event, both sporting pink T-shirts. Shaderecka explained that

“I know Latin.” The first words spoken to me when I came home from work the other day. Youngest SON of Thunder, who made that comment, had quite a smug look on his face. And I was pretty impressed. Impressed that our elementary public school was teaching kids Latin. Not that Latin is of much use anymore other than to help conjugate verbs, but it does sound cool. “Bet you don’t know what it means,” he said next. Getting a little cocky for a fourth-grader if you ask me. “And I bet you don’t know any Latin either.”

“Et tu, Brute,” I hit back. Youngest just gave me a sort of “huh” look and quickly resumed control of the conversation. “Sic Parvis Magna,” he said. “It’s my new motto.” According to Eldest, it was

Not playing (in) Chicken Hey, kids! Are you fed up with playing ultra-violent video games for hours and never getting the chance to gun down a real, live human? Well, you’re in luck. Right now, your United States government is offering a once-in-a lifetime opportunity to strap on some body armor, lock and load your very own automatic weapon, and blow up bad guys until you need a bong break. Best of all, you don’t even have to join the military and risk facing someone who shoots back. You can get all the lethal action you want by joining the law enforcement arm of one of the 24 — yes, 24 — federal agencies sporting large crews of hired guns. This opportunity won’t last long, so don’t wait. Apply now and quicker than you can say “Surrender or die,” you’ll be playing Black Ops 2 for real against your friends and neighbors. Wow! Outlandish? Over the top? Unreal? You wish. Recent reports revealed that some federal agencies you never suspected of needing gun toters have armed units of

I begin the whole life lesson thing about how true that motto is. You can’t knock it out of the park the first time, you learn and experiment. You start small and grow, whether it’s a business or saving money or learning sports or starting a career or … You get the point. I immediately head over to the computer and somehow he knows exactly where this “exact replica” ring can be ordered. So as I’m pulling out my credit card I ask him which teacher got him hooked on Latin and a great life motto.

mental law enforcement, like other forms of law enforcement, always involves the potential for physical, even armed confrontation.” Really? Since when? With whom? And environmental “law enforcement?” Huh? These matters used to be settled in court, not on Main Street at High Noon. The former flower children now running many government agencies used to chant, “Make Love, Not War.” Now it’s, “Up against the wall, citizen.” Guess it’s more fun than banning a new road that threatens an endangered slug. The EPA isn’t the only agency with a built-in SWAT team. Joe Citizen is deemed so scary that hired guns are even working for the Library of Congress. Is the budget so tight we now collect overdue books at gunpoint? Earlier this year when certain government agencies were accused of buying excess ammo, former Director of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano testified before a Senate committee. She confirmed that her agency was the proud owner of 1.6 billion — that’s billion — rounds of ammo. Napolitano said DHS ammo was largely used for training

I’m so sending roses and a big thank-you note and, heck, might even write a column about it. “I learned about it from my PSP game, Uncharted,” he said. That sound you hear — similar to a balloon deflating? Yeah. Apparently the hero of Uncharted, Nathan Drake, believes he is a direct descendent of Sir Francis and has somehow obtained his ancestor’s ring and is off on some adventure to … I really don’t care at this point. Nevertheless, I order the “exact replica” ring. It arrived in the mail and Youngest proudly wears it around his neck — as he’s playing Uncharted.

I guess I should be somewhat happy that despite the hours spent on video games, Youngest has pulled some life lesson out of all this —that he truly makes “Sic Parvis Magna” at least one of his mottos; that he understands what it truly means. Start small, grow, develop, build and build upon. I just wish a teacher had taught him that motto rather than a video game. But in truth, it should have come from me first. (John A.

He was also the second person to circumnavigate the world, doing so in 1577 to 1580. Yeah, I had to look it up myself. (Wikipedia can be your friend.) Youngest went on to tell me Drake had the motto inscribed on his ring, along with the date, 29th January, 1596. Friggin’ smart kid, thank you very much. And since he still has some birthday money left over, he would like to order an “exact replica” (his words) of the ring, which he will wear on a leather rope around his neck. And just what does Sic

Picking up where he left off

Former Northgate star Brandon Facyson making immediate impact for Virginia Tech as freshman while now leading NCAA in interceptions By DOUG GORMAN dgorman@newnan.com

Northgate alumnus Brandon Facyson celebrated his fourth interception during his freshman season during the win over Georgia Tech in Atlanta.

When it came time for Northgate graduate Brandon Facyson to choose where he wanted to play college football, it came down to two ACC schools that just happen to have Tech at the end of their name, the one a short drive from his Newnan, or the other six hours away in the mountains of Virginia . When the recruiting dust settled, Facyson decided he wanted to be a Hokie rather than a Yellow Jacket, a decision that may have made an immediate impact on the Georgia Tech game. In his second trip back home already this season, the true freshman showed why he has turned into an immedi-

ate impact player who entered last Saturday as the NCAA leader in interceptions. Facyson caused a fumble and later picked up his fourth interception of the season inside the red zone in a 17-10 victory over Georgia Tech. The four picks in his first four games already has tied a school record for interceptions by a freshman. In town after the victory, the former Viking got permission to stay for the weekend, visiting high school classmates and then watching from the stands in his Virginia Tech colors as his alma mater pull out an exciting 17-14 victory at Union Grove Friday on James Skalski’s game-winning kick as time expired. “I knew I wanted to make

an immediate impact when I got here, but I wasn’t really expecting this,” he said Friday night at half of the Northgate-Union Grove game. “I am thankful for it, and I am thankful for the coaches for giving me the chance.” Northgate head coach Tommy Walburn was proud of his former player. “It was great to see him,” Walburn said. “He is doing a fantastic job, and we are proud of him.” Facyson isn’t too sure what to make of his fast start into the world of big-time college football, which only came after injuries to veteran cornerbacks pushed him immediately into the starting lineup. During the Georgia Tech game, his diving interception on a ball that looked destined

to hit the turf along the sidelines made the holy grail of highlights among the Top 10 plays on ESPN’s SportsCenter. “I read the pass and I saw the quarterback rolling out,” he said. “My first thought was to follow the receiver, and I dove for it and laid out for it. I caught it and cradled it.” Although the play was reviewed, it was ruled Facyson maintained possession, and the ball went over to Virginia Tech. The Virginia Tech coaching staff can’t believe they are watching a freshman. “He’s not a freshman. He is not,” Virginia Tech assistant coach Jack Tyler told the Roanoke Times after Thursday’s game. “He is so far ahead of what most freshmen are at

this point. Just football IQwise, skill wise, he is a heck of a player.” Facyson has dreams of one day going to medical school to be a cardiologist when his playing days are over and admits juggling an freshman tough course load that includes chemistry with playing Division I football leaves him little free time. “It’s tough sometimes, but I am handling it well,” Facyson said. “It’s all going to work out fine.” Facyson is excited about the rest of the season, including the chance to earn ACC Freshman of the Year honors. “That’s the goal,” he said. “We will just have to see what happens.”

19th annual Bedrock Classic golf tournament approaching By Wes Mayer wesley@newnan.com

The Coweta County Sheriff’s Office is now accepting participant registration for its annual golf tournament benefiting Project SAFE. The golf tournament, the Bedrock Classic, will be held on Nov. 1 at Orchard Hills Golf Course south of Newnan. All proceeds of the tournament will go directly to Project SAFE (Students Are For Education), a course taught by school resource officers to all Coweta County fifth-grade students. “All of the money raised by the tournament goes back to the kids of Coweta County, not the sheriff’s office,” said Lt. Stephen Crook with the School Resource Unit. Project SAFE is a program taught in all 21 elementary schools of Coweta County. Including Crook, there are six

school resource officers who teach the course throughout the school year. The program is taught to all fifth-graders one day per week for 12 weeks, and on the side, courses are also taught to younger elementary school students. According to Crook, each week of the program covers a different topic. These topics include — the consequences of using drugs, the dangers of gateway drugs like marijuana and alcohol, and help with self-esteem, stress, violence, gangs, Internet safety and the media. Crook also said school resource officers will role-play with students about different ways to say “no.” During the tenth week of the program, all students are asked to write an essay. “We ask them to write us a written commitment to stay drug-free,” Crook said. “That’s

what the program is all about.” According to Crook, Project SAFE is funded entirely by donations, and the Bedrock Classic golf tournament is the program’s largest fundraiser. The cost is $75 per individual or $300 per team. Families, businesses, churches, etc. may also sponsor a hole on the course for $100. Food will be provided by the Redneck Gour-

met in Newnan, and drinks — all non-alcoholic —will be provided by Buffalo Rock. Steve Bedrosian, former Braves pitcher and former Coweta County Board of Education member, will kick off the tournament, which is named after him. The driving range will open at 9 a.m. and the tournament will begin at 9:30. Trophies will

the floor before putting the ball in place, to make sure there is nothing on the floor that can puncture it. During the process of getting the stability balls integrated into her classroom, Craver never faced an obstacle. Her principal was excited about the idea, as were the parents of her students. She even found local organizations who were willing to sponsor the project.

“I truly believe that it takes a village to raise a child,” she said. “I am greatly appreciative of their willingness (the donors) to support our classroom and be a part of our village.” As far as keeping the stability balls, Craver has no future pla ns of teaching wit hout them. “I don’t think I’d be able to teach without them now,” she said. “It’s a part of me and how I teach. It’s been a wonderful experience, and I would highly recommend it if you are willing to go through the right steps.”

pink was chosen for the shirts because pink is her favorite color. Hines said she learned her daughter had nephrophthisis, a chronic kidney condition, early this year. “She was drinking a lot, really thirsty and tired,” Hines said. Nephrophthisis is a genetic condition — mainly found in children. Plans have already been made for the surgery at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. Hines said a date has not yet been set, but the doctors hope to do the surgery “as soon as possible.” S h a d e r e c k a ’s f a t h e r i s Dereck Grier. Her grandparents are Konrad Hines and Linda Hines. Linda Hines was a longtime kindergarten teacher in Luthersville. Walk-a-thon participants included friends from church, classmates and teachers from Unity Elementary and other friends and family. One of those walking was Dedrida “Deb” Grier, who also needs a kidney and is awaiting a match. Insurance will cover much of the costs for Shaderecka’s

surgery, but some expenses will not be covered. Among those will the monthly maintenance medication costs in the $1,200-$2,000 range. T he next fundra iser for Shaderecka will be a motorcycle ride. Kasey Calhoun, the school nurse at Unity Elementary, said the ride will be “starting at Unity and traveling to Pine Mountain.” The ride will be Oct. 19
