Glanton students experience history firsthand By Celia Shortt

Earlier this month, fourth-graders at Glanton Elementary School in Grantville hosted 15 Coweta residents who shared with them stories from their generation. “It’s a wonderful thing to chat with a child,” said Glanton Elementary School Principal Katie Garrett. “Share something from your life.” “You are in the presence of some really great people,” she said to the students. “Enjoy your time with these people.” Students spent the rest of the morning with one of the 15 adult participants. These adults represented key areas and eras in Coweta County — city government, Kiwanis, educators, and community leaders. Each student listened and took notes while their adult partner shared a story from their life. Each story focused on an important or special event, place, memory, or occasion from their early life.

“We had retired educators and members of the local Kiwanis chapter, and other community stakeholders came to give students a greater sense of purpose, audience, and community, connecting to the past,” said fourth-grade teacher Ellen Thomas. Thomas and Glanton Elementary School Media Specialist Lori Mayes organized the event. After their interviews, the students used his or her notes and what they had heard during the interview to write a short story. The short stories will be published in a special “Student Treasures” book. They will also be submitted to a writing contest sponsored by the Coweta Public Library System for 4th to 12th graders. The student with the best overall composition in the contest will be awarded the grand prize of a Kindle Fire tablet. Second and third place prizes will also be awarded. The winning stories will published in a new magazine, “Truly Southern,” in March 2014.

Local survivor raises community’s awareness of pancreatic cancer By Bradley Hartsell

November is Nat ion a l Pa ncreatic Cancer Awareness Month, and Newnan is taking a vested interest in the cause. On Nov. 5, Newnan Mayor Keith Brady and Cissy Hass, Newnan resident and pancreatic cancer survivor, along with the team at Cancer Treatment Centers of America at Southeastern came together to help raise awareness and promote action against one of the deadliest cancers. Brady began the presentation by reading the official proclamation recognizing November as Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month in Newnan. Brady presented the proclamation with Nancy Mader, a Newnanite who serves on the board of the local Southeastern Assistance in Healthcare organization. Pancreatic cancer is an issue close to Mader, as she’s lost her father, aunt and grandmother to the disease. Mader, in an emotional speech, emphasized the need to “move from awareness to action” so that doctors can do more for 45,000 that will be diagnosed this year with pancreatic cancer. While more people are diagnosed each year with other cancers, pancreatic cancer is extremely deadly. With only a 6 percent survival rate, 94 percent of patients die within five years of diagnosis. Mader said many of the symptoms are so innocuous, people never think to get checked until the cancer is in its advanced stages. One survivor was on hand, however. Cissy Hass, her team of supporters in attendance, known as “Cissy’s Army,” anchored the presentation with powerful words about breaking the expectations set for her. “Those statistics don’t apply to me,” Hass said to a large applause. Hass was diagnosed with Stage 4 pancreatic cancer in April, leading to 17

rounds of chemotherapy and five-andhalf weeks of radiation. She is certainly battle tested, and at the presentation stressed “putting an end to this insidious disease” through the ripple effect: awareness leads to funding, which leads to research, which finally leads to answers. Marie Swope, invited to the presentation as a friend of Mader, lost a sister to pancreatic cancer and found Hass’ message a powerful one. “I think she’s a remarkable, strong woman,” said Swope. “I know, because to fight this cancer, you have to be strong.” Dr. George Daneker of CTCA and Georgia Tech spoke of some of the advancements being done in pancreatic cancer research. Dr. Daneker remarked

how advocacy isn’t as strong for pancreatic cancer like it is for something like breast cancer because, unfortunately, there aren’t enough survivors to rally for the cause. “The best advocacy is better treatment,” said Daneker. He mentioned how research is not moving forward nearly as fast as the medical community would like, but locally, grants from Georgia Tech and financial augmentation from national groups are helping to push the process along. One of those groups is PanCan, or Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. Represented by Brooke Caviglia at the event, who closed the presentations, PanCan is a leading group in campaigning against pancreatic cancer. Caviglia stated their goal is doubling the survival rate by 2020. To see that goal, Caviglia said that every dollar PanCan raises for research is leveraged into $10 by doctors. Right before the presentation began, PanCan was alerted it had surpassed its yearly goal of $200,000 raised for 2013, which Caviglia relayed, warranting a rousing response from the crowd. “Breakthroughs are on the horizon,” Daneker said in his presentation, something PanCan reinforced when it presented its facts and figures. Those breakthroughs are hopefully coming for the fighters like Hass and to decrease the amount and the severity of diagnoses across the country. “My journey is not over, I know that,” said Hass, who recently got a purple dot tattooed on her finger to commemorate her fight. “But I am not scared.” Absent that day was her son, currently serving in the Navy. She hated he had to be overseas worrying about his mother. She looked back with teary eyes at her “army,” with her son there in spirit. “I fight for you,” she said.

This year, bring dishes to the table that put an easy, elegant and flavorful twist on the traditional. Whether you’re a first time host or a seasoned pro, there are certain secrets to help ensure a holiday meal that is both elegant and effortless. One such secret is using dressings and sauces to enhance savory flavors and add zest to your meals. One taste and your guests will think you spent hours in the kitchen. Start with a salad of Baby Greens with Roasted Pears, Feta and Walnuts. The heart-healthy walnuts and olive oil are combined with feta cheese, baby greens and firm, ripe pears.

Not only is the salad good for you, the healthy oils found in salad dressings help the body to better absorb key nutrients. Your

guests will love having a healthy dish on the table. Your guests will also love Grilled Shrimp with Remoulade Sauce. Whisk together a spicy sauce with savory ingredients, such as Dijon mustard, hot sauce, capers, parsley and mayon­naise, which is made with healthy oils and contains Omega 3 fatty acids. Baste sauces on skewered shrimp as they grill for a zesty and spicy dish that can be used as an appetizer or tasty side item. Make a BBQ Roast Turkey the centerpiece of your table. Start with your favorite barbecue sauce and add a few additional ingre­d ients to give it an extra kick of flavor. The finished sauce is then basted on the turkey as it roasts to create a spicy glaze. This holiday season, experiment with your favorite dressings and sauces to create meals for your family.

Thirty-two Coweta County middle-schoolers recently traveled to Auburn University to compete in the Auburn Mathematical Puzzle Challenge (AMP’d). Students from the Central Educational Center’s 8 th Grade Academy, East Coweta Middle and Smokey Road Middle competed in a day full of challenges at the event, and walked away with one first place win. Students began the day by competing in a marketing challenge. Students purchased goods to solve a problem that would lead them to their room key. Once inside, teams were given three puzzles to solve. The Coweta teams solved all three

puzzles and received bonus pieces as well. Following challenges included three more puzzles and three more bonuses. The students worked throughout the day to gain pieces to a final puzzle. During the final challenge the team from CEC won first place and received the “Ready Set Go” award. Each team received a plaque, a puzzle and T-shirts. “The students represented the county with excellence and their teachers could not be more proud of their accomplishments,” said East Coweta technology teacher Blaire Booth.

The Bedrock Classic golf tournament was held at the Orchard Hills Golf Course south of Newnan, with all proceeds going directly to Project SAFE (Students Are For Education), a course taught by school resource officers to Coweta County fifth-grade students. A total of 90 golfers in 23 tea m s pa r t icipated i n t he event organized by the Coweta County Sheriff ’s Office, and 43 companies, businesses and organizations sponsored the course’s holes. The Redneck gourmet provided food, Rockback Pizza provided drinks, Sign-A-Rama donated signs for the tournament, and Morgan’s Trophy presented trophies to the winners. “We appreciate all their support,” said Lt. Stephen Crook with the School Resource Unit. “All of the money raised by the tournament goes back to the kids of Coweta County, not the sheriff’s office.” There were three flights of golfers in the tournament. The first f light first-place winners were Joe Crain, Kermit Perry, Richard Bemister and Craig Ketelsen; the second flight winners were Jodi Shepherd, Cheryl Drewyer, Bud Freeburg and Joel Starnes; and the third f light winners were Matt Frady, Tyler Claburn, Chris Claburn and Scott Arnold. Two other trophies were awarded — The Longest Drive to Will Smith, and Closest to the Pin to Eric Johnson. The morning began with some light rain, Crook said, but it fortunately cleared up into a beautiful day for the golfers. Project SAFE is a program taught in all elementary schools in Coweta. Including Crook, there are six school resource officers teaching the course. The program is taught 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 the program covers a different topic. The topics include the consequences of using drugs, dangers of gateway drugs like marijuana and alcohol, help with self-esteem, stress, violence, gangs, Internet safety and the media.

Crook also said resource officers role-play with students about different ways to say “no.” Usi ng t hei r ow n ba n k account, separate from the County Sheriff’s Office, Project SAFE is accountable for its own resources. It provides T-shirts and certificates to all 1,800 to 2,000 graduates. In addition, the student who writes the best essay from each class receives a medal, and the student who writes the best

essay from each school receives a leadership award trophy. All the money raised from the tournament goes toward Project SAFE, Crook said. T h e pro g r a m i s f u nde d entirely by donations, and the Bedrock Classic golf tournament is its largest fundraiser. Donations to the project are accepted at all times, and questions may be directed to Lt.

I need a popsicle One of the most agonizing feelings any parent goes through is seeing one’s child in pain. This is more so when you know there is absolutely nothing you can do but try and comfort them the best you can. But the pain is still there and will be there for days to come. Youngest SON of Thunder was lying on the couch. And he was in pain. We had just come back from the hospita l where Youngest had his tonsils removed. Yes, we probably should have done it


sooner, when he was younger, but he rarely got sick. That is, until this year, when he went through eight bouts of strep throat. And all I can do is just sit there and hold him. Wishing the pain away, but knowing

that won’t happen despite all the drugs we are giving him. There is nothing I can do. Or is there? Youngest wanted a popsicle. Orange-flavored to be exact. And suddenly, I had a way to help him out in some small way. I f You n ge st wa nted an orange popsicle, then an orange popsicle he shall have. Try and get in my way. I now had a mission. A mission to find a good old-fashioned orange popsicle — the kind with the stick at one end and, obviously, orange in color.

Just a suggestion Dear Mr. President, I have written you several notes in the past and all went unanswered, so allow me to introduce myself. Again. My name is Alex and I’m here to help. To be honest, I’m not your biggest fan. But I am wild about the U.S.A. and ready to serve when my country needs help. Like now. Mr. O, watching your team trying to implement Obamacare has been like watching clowns pile out of the stunt car at the circus. Except at the circus, customers are expected to laugh. No one is laughing over Obamacare.

ALEX mcrae I know these things aren’t easy. I feel your pain. And I cringe when conservatives suggest that if the dopes who desig ned Oba m ac a re h ad spent more time working in the private sector and less in graduate school they would have known that it was going to be really hard to implement the largest, most expensive

government progra m ever conceived outside the former Soviet Union. The task got tougher when Team Obama decided the best way to implement the program was to let “customers” sign up via a new government website. And maybe they would. If they could. Mr. President, after almost three years of alleged work, your Ha r va rd-heav y tea m of hacks has yet to produce a workingn website capable of simultaneously handling enough customers to f ill a booth at the nearest Waff le House. Frankly, sir, the Obamacare

The kind everyone has on a hot summer day. So I head off to the local grocery store and right for the frozen treats section. What the whatever. I cannot find an orange-flavored popsicle. Heck, I can’t find a popsicle. I mean, a lot of the offerings said “popsicle” but there was nothing “pop” or “sicle” about them. And the flavors? Strawberr y shor tca ke, chocolate eclair, cookies and cream, oreo, toasted almond, choc-dipped vanilla, root beer, banana, lemon lime. Whatever happened to grape, cherry and, obviously, orange? And who in the world would eat a toasted

almond so-called popsicle? And where were the popsicles? We had Big Stick Cherry Pineapple, something called a “Firecracker,” SpongeBob Squarepants Pop Ups, Slow Melt Mighty Minis, Sour Patch Kids, Hello Kitty, Airheads, Scribblers, Rainbow, Jolly Rancher Awesome Twosome and on and on. Let me repeat what I wanted. A four or five inch long frozen piece of ice with a wooden stick running one end. One of those all-American popsicles that have been around since our country was founded. And not a one was to be found. I look yet again. Buried in the deepest, darkest corner of

the freezer section that clearly says “popsicles” is a box. Lo and behold it contains grape, cherry and, thankfully, orange. And they are the originals. Kind of like Levi 501s before “fashion” took over. I grab the box and head to checkout. I’m thinking of getting a pack of gum — maybe Juicy Fruit or, if I’m daring, Dentyne. Gold old American gum. Good grief. They’ve got rows of gum from companies I’ve never heard of and even several bizarre flavors sponsored by one snowboarder alone …

rollout has been the most disastrous launch since the Titanic sailed for New York in 1912. I know you’re not happy about this, sir. And frankly, I think some of the criticism of you and your program is unfair. Sure, we created a space program from scratch and sent a man to the moon and back, but that was decades ago, when Americans were more concerned with results t ha n f ieldi ng a tea m t hat reflects our nation’s diversity. We’re now the most inclusive nation on Earth. You deserve t he cred it. Restor i ng ou r national competence can’t be far behind. But I digress. Back to the current problem. Your two beautiful daughters, Sasha and Malia, are 12 and

15 years old, respectively. I’d bet anything those two young ladies have more computer savvy than you and I can even dream of. I know a 4-year-old that can operate every piece of electronic equipment in the house. Twelve-year-olds are writing code that alerts them to sales at Aeropostale. Building websites? Today’s teenagers could build the Death Star in a week. The kids down the street from the White House are dabbling with quantum computing and artificial intelligence. The Obamacare website team is still stuck at Pac-Man and Donkey Kong. That’s a formula for failure. The solution is simple, Mr. President. Ignore your pol-

icy advisors and fire those old school tech no geek s . Then, just put the right people in charge. Why not let your daughters build the new Obamacare website? Or let them hire some bright young friends for the job. I bet your girls know plenty. And chances are, hiring these young guns will save tons of money. They will certainly charge less than the $630 million already wasted on this effort. If you play your cards right, the new team will probably work for a lifetime supply of Red Bull, Doritos and video games. Think it over and let me know. Please reply to Google still works. Yours for a swell America.

State, county and school property taxes due Monday, December 2 Coweta County Tax Comm i ssioner Tom my Fer rel l reminds taxpayers that 2013 state, county and school property taxes are due Dec. 2, since the normal due date of Dec. 1 falls on a Sunday this year. If a taxpayer has not received a bill on any property for which they have the responsibility, they should check with the Tax Commissioner’s Office for the amount due to ensure payment is made, Ferrell said. Late charges begin accruing after that date.

Taxpayers may view and print their tax bills online at Tax bills may also be paid on the website through PayPal. Appeals — If a taxpayer appea led proper t y va luation and that appeal has not been settled, the taxpayer was mailed a bill based on 85 percent of the Assessors’ proposed value as required by Georgia law. Those bills are also due Dec. 2. Payment options — New for 2013 is the “Bill Me Later”

payment option through PayPal on the Tax Commissioner’s website at “Once approved and initial payment and processing fee applied, the Tax Commissioner’s Office receives the tax payment and there would be no additional charges if paid within six months,” Ferrell said. “This is just another payment option for taxpayers and the decision to apply for this program is solely at the discretion of the taxpayer,” he said.

find it  f irst

Property owners who purchased their property after Jan. 1, 2013, should remember that tax bills were mailed to the legal owner of record as of Jan. 1. However, responsibility for payment of taxes would have been determined at sales closing, normally with the new owner becoming responsible, Ferrell said. “Failure to have received a tax bill in the mail will not cause late charges to be waived if paid after the due date,” he said.

T h e Ta x C o m m i s s i o n er’s Office cannot guarantee receipt of a tax bill in the mail, he said. Taxpayers are encouraged to mail payments whenever possible, Ferrell said. Off icial USPS postmarks are accepted. Visa, Mastercard and American Express are accepted with a 2.5 percent administration fee. Debit cards are accepted at the counter with a $2 fee per transaction. Also, for taxpayer convenience, an overnight

payment drop box is located at the Perry Street entrance to the County Administration Building, he said. Office hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday – Friday, except for the third Wednesday in each month when the office opens at 8:30. The Property Tax and Tag Offices, as other county offices, will be closed Thursday and Friday, Nov. 28 and 29 for the Thanksgiving holidays.

Military dad strong influence on son’s support of charity By Clay Neely

Scott Tyson, left, stands with his youngest son, Mason on their 180 Degree Farm in Sharpsburg.

Local farm, non-profit provides organic food By Bradley Hartsell

W hen Mason Tyson was diagnosed with Stage 4 Neuroblastoma in 2006 at just four years old — on his birthday, no less — his parents, Scott and Nicole, were simply devastated and left asking a lot of questions. After Mason’s initial surgery, doctors began outlining his future. Chemotherapy was the next option. Chemo was going to weaken Mason and put him at risk for future issues. He’d probably live to be 40, the Tysons were told. Unsatisfied, the family opted against chemo, deciding to wait and monitor the cancer. All the while, Tyson researched the question of ... “Why?” “I read case study after case study trying to find the link to Neuroblastoma. Over and over it kept coming back to pesticides,” said Scott Tyson. T he fa m i ly i m med iately made a diet change, largely based on a paper written by Dr. Cha rles Benbrook . No more processed foods, no more sugars (“sugars feed cancer,” explained Tyson), no more vegetables grown in chemicals. With a drastic but medically sound diet change, the cancer in Mason’s lymph nodes calcified and sealed completely. Their son’s cancer healed and they attributed it all to one of the most basic elements of life: natural foods. A month before the diagnosis, the Tysons bought a farm in Sharpsburg, intending to build on it and move from Fayette County. The Tysons looked at their near 15-acre farm with something else in mind: it would be an organic garden, a community-oriented garden to help those in need. Tyson had grown food his whole life. Now, he was armed with the knowledge of “nutritiously dense” fruits and vegetables, as well as grassfed meat. “Whatever the plants eat, we ingest,” explained Tyson, “So

we have to be very careful.” Tyson says plants absorb pesticides into their cell walls, so when consumers wash off vegetables, it’s not really doing anything but making them wet. In 2009, 180 Degree Farm opened with the creed “grow, give, teach.” The focus is on good soil. Tyson says the food they grow isn’t ever an issue; they’re merely the extension of the soil. Tyson works full-time but works every night and weekend in the garden, toiling over every vegetable imaginable and the farm’s grass-fed chickens, ducks, turkeys and sheep. His wife, Nicole, homeschools Mason, now age 11 and six years cancer-free, and Cameron, 15. The 180 Degree Farm, a nonprofit organization, donates primarily to churches, food banks and their CSA customers (com mun it y-suppor ted agriculture). “In my opinion, 60-70 percent of diseases come from food,” said Tyson, who pointed to Autism and Type 2 diabetes. He believes it’s linked to America’s recent past of convenience — fast food, junk snacks and sodas. “Changing diets is going to take time. But the people who do switch see changes. Things like pancreatic cancer tend to go away when diet changes.” The Tysons teach classes in addition to growing food, raising awareness to the dangers of conventional diets and the power of natural ones. The farm has thrived off of volunteers and donations throughout its four-year history. Tyson says colleges send students to volunteer for days at a time. It’s the passion of those who pitch in that keep the the farm thriving, matching the passion the Tysons had of pitching in to the community. Scott Tyson calls it “a labor of love.” When he’s working every night and weekend with what saved his youngest child’s life, how could he call it anything else?

It’s easy for David Watts, for mer ow ner of New na n Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, to name the individual who’s had the biggest impact on his life. “My dad,” Watts said. “My father was the greatest influence in my life growing up.” After rattling off the resume of his father’s life, it’s no mystery how this came to pass. Growing up only four blocks from Wrigley Field, David Watts’ father, Orville J. Watts (he went primarily by O.J.), cast a large shadow for his son. As a member of the 163rd Engineer Combat Battalion, he was on the first line that took Omaha Beach on June 6, 1944. He was shot twice, but only grazed, and was soon back on the front lines with Patton’s First and Third armies — participating in the Battle of the Bulge and driving all the way into Germany. Like many who served, following his discharge from the military, O.J. Watts went to college on the GI bill, graduating from the University of Miami with a double major in theology and political science. From Miami, he found his way to the Secret Service, work i n g u nder P re sident Dwight Eisenhower. Then, he spent 33 years as an FBI agent in Chicago and Indiana. Wat t s ’ bac k g rou nd a nd upbringing has influenced his devotion toward the Humble Heroes Foundation, a charity started by Atlanta Police Detective Patrick Apioan and his wife, Sandra. The Humble Heroes Foundation is committed to assisting police officers and firefighters, and their families, by providing f inancial and moral support to those who have been seriously injured or

year and tied it into the dealership as our main sponsor,” he said. Condit says that the next Go Topless event will be in May. “It ’s still not ver y wellknown down here just yet. I k now Patrick did something for Chris Landreau, the Coweta County fireman who passed away from cancer in 2011. He did a fundraiser before he passed but that’s the only exposure Humble Heroes has had down here so far,” Condit said. The younger Watts ultimately went on to Purdue for college, where he majored in accounting and marketing, then subsequently went to work for KPMG and was, by luck, assigned to large car dealerships. Watts went to work for a large dealer group, initially as CFO, and then moved into the operations side, and over the last 20 years he has been involved in various forms of ownership including being a partner in Ascent automotive, a platform of Lexus dealerships in Las Vegas, Ohio and Texas. He has worked

fallen ill, while building solid relationships between public servants and the communities they serve. “Part of my affiliation with this organization was growing up in a law enforcement family,” said Watts, and his dedication toward the cause was evidenced during the Newnan dealership’s grand opening last spring. D u r i n g t h e i n it i a l t wo months of the opening, proceeds were don ated from every sale for a grand total of $8,000, benefitting Humble Heroes. Michael Condit is a member of the Newnan Police Department and used his off-road club, Go Topless, to help raise money for Humble Heroes. Condit’s event three years ago was held in downtown Newnan. “We did Go Topless down near the Alamo three years ago. We did it as a fundraiser for an injured deputy out of West Virginia who was shot in the spine. It used to be a meet-and-greet for Jeeps, but turned it into a fundraiser. I partnered with Patrick shortly after that. We did it again this

with most major franchises — Toyota, Nissan, Ford and GM — in either operations or ownership. “It’s been fantastic,” Watts said of his time with the CDJR dealership in Newnan. “The community has been so supportive and we were lucky to work with the Chamber of Commerce so early. It’s a small town that’s very well networked. The Chamber was instrumental in our growth. What usually takes years has only taken just a short time,” said Watts. CDJR over the last year was involved with fundraising for high schools and charities, he said. “It’s a big part of our commitment to give back. If you’re asking the public to do business with you, it needs to be mutual.” CDJR was recently sold to Terry Taylor but Watts plans to remain part of the Newnan community in the future. “I believe that Newnan and Coweta, based on the growth of the past and the projected future, is a terrific opportunity for a dealership,” said Watts.
