Beloved dog, best friend gets new lease on life By SARAH FAY CAMPBELL

Brian Ziifle pictured with his best friend, Lady

Lady, an 11-year-old Yorkshire Terrier, is Brian Ziifle's best friend. The perky Yorkie has formed an incredible bond with Brian, a Coweta County resident who has Down Syndrome. Four years ago, Brian moved into his own condo. "We sent Lady with [Brian] to be his roommate, so he had someone waiting there for him when he came home," said Brian’s mother, Helen. "They really have formed a bond that goes beyond owner and pet. He talks to her like a human and tells her everything, and she is really his best friend." In the days leading up to Christmas, Lady became very sick, and the Ziif les thought they were going to lose her. The family prayed fervently, along with starting a prayer chain among friends. Brian even wrote a letter to Santa Claus. Then the Ziifles received a Christmas miracle. Lady woke up fou r days before the holiday, gasping for breath. “We took her straight to the

veterinarian and they sent us to an emergency place in Fayetteville,” said Helen. “Lady was in respiratory distress and was suffering from renal disease.” The emergency veterinarian staff discovered Lady had pneumonia and they suspected an enlarged heart, but couldn’t see the heart clearly because her lungs were filled with fluid. The tiny dog was put on oxygen and was given heart medication. On Monday, Lady was placed in intensive care. “The internal medicine veterinarian said she would do all she could do to get her home to Brian on Christmas Eve,” said Helen. O n Mond ay, t he Z i i f le s stopped by a new restaurant in Fayetteville on the way home from visiting Lady at the pet hospital. Santa Claus was at the restaurant visiting children. Santa was preparing to leave when he spotted Brian and returned, putting an arm around the young man. Brian told Santa he had one Christmas wish, that Lady could come back home. “Lady is very sick and she might die,” Helen recalls Brian saying to Santa, “The poor man.

His eyes filled up and he said, ‘Well son, I’m only Santa, but I will pray for you and your pet.’” L ady ret u r ne d home on Christmas Eve, but the doctors and the Ziifles thought she was coming home to die. Later that evening, the family attended midnight mass services at a nearby church. Brian lit a candle for Lady. “Then, just to cover all his bases, he returned home and wrote a letter to Santa,” Helen said. “He explained who Lady was and how he loved her. He wrote she was his best friend and asked if Santa would please use his magical powers to help heal lady,” Helen said. “Not to leave everything just to God, we enlisted Santa, too,” Helen said with a smile. Brian left the letter with milk and cookies. Lady made it through Christmas. On Thursday, the family took Lady to the veterinarian for a follow-up visit. “The staff was flabbergasted. Lady was walking around and looked so good,” Helen said. “The X-ray showed Lady’s lungs

Chase away winter chills with meals from your pantry

Resolving to eat more healthily nothing new By BRADLEY HARTSELL

The end of the year gives way to a lot of reflection — “best of 2013!” — and promotes a lot of looking forward — “this will be the best of 2014!” Trends in food may be a bit more difficult to predict, but some foodies are already placing bets on some hopeful contenders. 201 3 gave us t he R a men burger and the fried Twinkie burger, but it’s likely none of those social media food fads made it into a Coweta kitchen. Places like the Huffington Post and CBS News provide several predictions, but two trends dominate the upcoming year: international flavors becoming staples of American kitchens, and foods that place emphasis on healthy eating habits. If these trends seem familiar, it is likely because these ideals of new flavors and healthconscious choices typically are predicted annually. Americans will be cooking dishes spanning the globe and they’ll be doing it with responsibly grown food and exercising portion control. These hopeful projections

are optimal, but local food fiends aren’t buying the hype. “[These lists] are ineffective because these ideas are only introduced in January and do nothing to help people see the need for a lifestyle change,” said Gina Bruce, a food enthusiast who often appears in the Culinary Exposure column in The Newnan Times-Herald. Bruce’s favorite gift this Christmas was a set of Julia Child’s cookbooks. “Nobody is telling people how bad it is to drink diet Coke, but we tell people to stop eating sweets cold turkey. It’s unrealistic.” If these lists are unrealistic, why do they pop up in some form every January? “Because of the hype. It’s January. If [these articles] don’t make it sound appealing and ‘new,’ even though people have known these ideas for years, then people don’t get excited. The problem is, that excitement doesn’t last through February and beyond.” For many families, including Bruce’s, there isn’t always the time or money for the lifestyle these popular lists promote. “People can’t maintain the lifestyle because it’s expensive

or because they don’t know how to change eating habits for good,” Bruce said. “Everyone cleans out their fridge, buys organic food and cookbooks on better eating. They join a gym and then go broke and head back to McDonald’s for the next 10-11 months. Jan. 1 comes along and we repeat.” “I worked at a gym for years,” she added. “I saw this trend. People get too excited and aren’t realistic. We romanticize working out and being healthy without the commitment.” 2014 will likely be a year very similar to 2013, at least when it comes to food. Bruce doesn’t discount eating healthily, but the change doesn’t automatically come because the calendar turns. Some foods will be “buzz” foods, like kale a few years ago. Cauliflower is tabbed to be the next big thing. If you ask Bruce, these lists may get foodies excited — i.e. every dinner party in 2014 will be dishes from the South Pacific — but ultimately, people will cook what’s in their fridge, and hopefully the contents of the fridge will be just a little bit healthier than they were the year before.

were clea r a nd they just cou ld not believe t he improvement.” “I told them besides good medical care, Lady had Santa and she had God,” Helen said, “I’m sure some of the improvement was just being back with Brian. Lady felt so safe and secure and loved,” she said. “I think she healed better.” Today, Lady’s health continues to improve. “She’s getting feisty again, barking and wagging her tail,” Helen said. Lady is doing well enough that she was given the OK from the vet to travel with the family to New Orleans to celebrate the New Year. Helen said she is impressed by the staff of the animal hospital and the veterinarian. “I’m sure she continuously loses patients … you would think she would get a little calloused about it,” Helen said. “But when I told her the story of Brian speaking to Santa at the restaurant and writing him the letter, she cried her eyes out.” And then there were all the

people on the prayer chain who kept checking on Lady, even during the hustle and bustle of Christmas. “It just amazed me, we have wonderful friends and people who believe in the power of prayer,” Helen said. “That is the only thing I can attribute Lady’s recovery to. Medically, it was not what anybody anticipated.” L ady i s st i l l su f fer i ng f rom k id ney fa i lu re a nd an enlarged heart. She will have to take medicine for the remainder of her life, but doctors estimate Lady will live another year. The Ziifles will now have time to prepare for the loss, and plan to fully enjoy the time remaining with Lady. “For Brian, it’s huge,” Helen said. “We honestly feel like it is a miracle, that is the only explanation we can give.” Helen said when people ask her what Lady is like, she tells them she’s just like Brian, only with fur. “She just loves everybody. Everybody loves her,” she said. “Lady is one of those sweet, loving dogs that everybody falls in love with. Brian and Lady are so much alike; they are the perfect pair.”

Please let this Christmas end I think we will just wrap this past Christmas up in a box and hide it somewhere in the attic, never to be remembered. The intent was all there, but the execution was, shall we say, different. Where to begin? Probably a couple of days before Christmas, as the Little Black Dress was at Youngest SON’s school delivering little gifts to the teachers, I get a call at work. Apparently the car won’t start. Being the dutiful husband, I head to the school to jumpstart the now dead vehicle. Won’t start. Radio works, windows go up and down. Engine will not turn over. And I start to think this probably is going to be something other than a battery. So we get the car towed, and the mechanic calls and says it was the starter. Do you have any idea how much a starter costs and to get it installed? Later I turn to The Dress and say “Mer r y Ch rist ma s.” She responds that she’s “always wanted a starter for Christmas.” I believe it was the same day, after dropping me off at work, that the LBD


returned home to find that one of her rescue mutts had somehow climbed up on the table and got into the brownies she had painstakingly cooked for the staff here. An aside. Dear staff: The dog literally ate the brownies. Will try again next year. Not content with merely eating the brownies, said mutt also decided to vomit said brownie intake all over the house. It was somewhere around this time that The Dress and I both got hit with some rather painful issues. She got a fever blister that was, as one of the SONs called it, the size of a meteor. No kissing for Christmas even with bounties of mistletoe. It hurt to eat. For my part, I got a pinched nerve in my back. It hurt to walk. Trying to sit down was like getting hit by a arrow,

Many happy returns They are the two most overused words of the holiday season. Not “Merry Christmas. Not “Happy Hanukkah.” Not “Kwanzaa Rocks.” The other two: “Give Back.” If I hear those words one more time this year I’m liable to throw up my hands — and my last meal. I keep my guilt muscle in great shape all by myself. I bet I’m not alone. You can’t sit through an hour of the annual “It’s a Wonderful Life” marathon without seeing a heart-tugging pitch featuring sad-eyed pets, hollow-cheeked children or pajama-clad twentysomethings not yet enrolled in Obamacare. I get it. ‘Tis the season when heartstrings and purse strings are never closer, when those most likely to give don’t think twice about mailing a check or visiting a website to “give back” to a worthwhile cause. No complaints about the concept. I do it myself. Mostly because I realize many worthwhile causes and organizations could not survive without what Tennessee Williams (via Blanche DuBois) called “the kindness of strangers.” Give away. Just make sure you’re giving to those who are willing to receive. And always remember there are certain people that are not receptive to the “Give Back” gospel. Especially this time of year. Those people are called retailers. And

ALEX mcrae

between Christmas and New Year’s Day there is nothing they like less than cranky crowds knocking down the doors determined to “give back” gifts that were too large, small, tacky, thoughtless, useless or just plain stupid. Sadly, most of the unwanted items were given with the best of intentions. The problem is, they were given by people who should never be allowed to shop alone. For example, teenage boys should be banned from purchasing perfume for young ladies. Girls want Chanel No. 5. Adolescent males are turned on by eau de WD-40. Likewise, bachelors should be barred from Victoria’s Secret. Luckily, help for lousy shoppers is here. Retailers have compiled a list of the most-returned gift items. If you find yourself eyeing one of these gift bombs next year, you might want to step back. Way back. Clothing is the item most likely to be returned. One look explains why so

a very sharp arrow complete with pain poison. The SONS had to push and pull me to help get me out of a chair. And even in and out of the car. Lord help me if I coughed. What else? Oh yes. Youngest SON of Thunder has had a silver tooth for quite some time. While The Dress was helping him floss that night, it popped out — hitting her in the eye. We are ready for this blessed holiday to be over. The Dress will not show herself in public. I can’t move. We agree we are just going to do a little “re-gifting” for each other this year. Fortunately, we already had the SONS covered. Christmas rolls around. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find a big bow to wrap the SUV with — to remind her about her new starter. So I just reminded her. Repeatedly. Not to worry. In that whole re-gifting motif, she hands me a present. It’s a beautifully framed photo of us — at our wedding. Middle SON of Thunder bursts out laughing. “That’s not a gift.” The LBD tells him to shut up. Not to be outdone, I grab the aforementioned vomiting dog and a bow and say, “Here. Merry Christmas.” I can’t wait to see what New Year’s Day brings.

many items go back. What I don’t understand is some of the things people keep. And wear in public. It’s easy to go wrong with toys, games and electronics, and retailers say even savvy dudes make a mess of perfume and cosmetic choices. Speaking of guys, when it comes to jewelry, experts say you can’t go wrong by surprising that special lady with a big, shiny gift certificate. I suggest a mood ring. At least you’ll know when to duck. Certain gifts are inappropriate — or just plain tacky — at any time of year. L e ad i n g t he 2 01 3 l i st i s “ D uc k Dynasty” chia pets. These are swell as office party gags, but if you know someone who would love a chia garden featuring the likeness of Uncle Si, maybe you should “give back” some of your acquaintances. This year, I even saw an ad pushing miniature vacuum cleaners. Who gives this to a child? And why? Even presents from your nearest and dearest can break your heart. Not long after I was grown and gone and out of the house, my mother sent me two Christmas gifts in the same box. Both were unforgettable. I wore the handmade f lannel shirt until the stitching came loose. The other? Well, how many parents do you know that have given their children Odor-Eaters foot deodorant for Christmas? Every time I talked to mother, I raved about the shirt. The Odor Eaters? She didn’t ask and I didn’t tell. Sometimes, silence is the best thanks of all.

Local artists create large, memorable sculptures By Bradley Hartsell

Great art is sometimes hard to appreciate — especially when it’s in your own backyard. Taking a local artist’s painting for granted is easy to do, as painting is such a fundamental art form. But it may be harder to wrap your head around a welded chair more than 6 feet tall or a metal cello that’s even taller. Things like that are imported from somewhere else — not driven from Franklin right out of the shop. To R.L. Hughey Jr., however, it’s art, and it’s being made right outside Coweta County. Hughey is a retired mechanical engineer from Southwire and works with his partner, Debbie McNeil, to create large, original pieces of art. It started when he opened Green Lantern Frame Shop with a friend, where, according to Hughey, a lot of artists would visit, sparking his own interest in art. Hughey began ta king art classes, finding an immediate interest in pen and ink drawing, but when pen and ink became too time consuming, Hughey discovered a natural ability with sculpture. Fifteen years ago, McNeil was a former art teacher who had a studio in Carrollton. Hughey would come by and show her his drawings and expressed an interest in watercolor painting. The two began collaborating, and later, when Hughey

retired, they were both certified in welding. Now, after all these years, the two concentrate on sculpture and stained glass, creating new and exciting pieces of art continuously. “It was a whole different game [moving from painting to sculpture],” McNeil said. “Because I was used to 2D and sculpture is 3D.” I n recent yea rs , Hug hey and McNeil have exhibited their oversize welding projects throughout several events, including one in Chattanooga, Tenn. “Where’s My Hammer?” is the chair welded and made entirely from old tools, earning its name for the three hammerheads contained somewhere in the chair. Hughey says the chair had more than 50 different layouts until it was finished, which he says was a three-month construction process. The chair has been exhibited from Newnan to Tennessee, winning second place in the annual Newnan-Coweta Art Association show. Don Nixon, director of the Centre for Performing and Visual Arts in Newnan, later asked Hughey to borrow the ch a i r a ga i n , f rom Ch at t anooga, where it can be found now. The chair is joined by a welded metal cello containing the wires of a toy violin tucked inside the metal body. The burgeoning arts scene in Coweta is well-documented, primarily its painters. But it still seems surprising when visiting the Centre and seeing a metal cello bigger than you are that

plays music. You really wonder, “That came from here?” “He’s an incredibly talented engineer. I follow his lead when it comes to sculpture,” said McNeil. “He likes rusty metal and I like colors,” she added. “So we make a pretty good team.” “We do a variety of stuff between the two of us,” Hughey

Brilliance just never seems like it can be right across the county line, accessible to us so easily. But yet, there’s R.L. Hughey Jr, wheeling in a metal chair or cello or horse built just down the road. “I’ve always worked around metal,” he said. “Welding is exciting, all these different metals coming together to create

said. “She’s the lead in watercolor and painting. I’m the lead with welding. We don’t really make these things to sell, we just enjoy exhibiting.” The duo have welded a lifesized horse made from a bicycle, which has won them first prize in the NCAA show, and an 11-foot fish, along with many fused glass pieces of art.

Preparing for tax season Although most have said their fond farewells to 2013, thought needs to be given to the year that just passed as tax-filing season approaches. Tax season is a few months away, but it’s never too soon to begin preparations for filing taxes. Some prefer to toast the new year and then arrange appoi ntments w it h t hei r accountants, while others use the new year as an opportunity to get organized. Preparing for tax time at the dawn of a new year can make the process go more smoothly. Here are some tips on how to prepare for the upcoming tax season. * Start a documents folder. Employers, charitable organizations, banks and other financial institutions begin mailing out tax forms from the previous year in early January.

Make an itemized list of all pertinent information so it will be handy when tax-filing time arrives. * Decide on a filing option. Technology has made filing taxes much easier. Tax preparation software is available for those who choose to file their taxes themselves. There also are walk-in centers that will prepare tax-filing documents. Individuals also can visit a certified public accountant. Whatever method taxpayers choose, allow for ample time to gather information and get the taxes filed by the deadline. Leave some wiggle room in case one filing method doesn’t work out.

Registration under way for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Parade

Anneke Schallich is from Oldenburg, Germany. She spent the last three months teaching at Moreland Elementary School.

Students learn new language with visiting teacher By Celia Shortt Newnan’s annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. parade will be Jan. 11, departing from Newnan High School and moving through the Court Square. Registration is under way by organizing group Newnan Chapter 483 OES.

The annual Memorial Service, traditionally held the Friday prior to the parade, will be held Jan. 10 at Zion Hill Baptist Church, 87 Pinson Street in Newnan, starting at 7 p.m. The parade will be held on Jan. 11, departing from the area of Armory Road next to Newnan High School.

Also, Cynthia Finney and the youth Eastern Star chapter members provide input on the annual celebration.

Keys to meeting 2014 financial goals By Michael Rupured UGA Cooperative Extension

The New Year is an opportunity for fresh starts, and new beginnings. Quitting a bad habit, losing weight, exercising more, and doing better with money are common New Year's resolutions. By Ground Hog's Day, most resolutions have fallen by the wayside. Why? People beat themselves up too much and give up too easily. They mess up one time and, instead of trying again, call it quits. These resolutions have more in common than popularity. All revolve around activities most engage in every day. The way a person eats, spends money, and exercises develops over many years. Changing old habits and routines overnight is a tall order, and rarely possible. Messing up now and then goes with the territory. A day or two of overeating, overspending, or sk ipping the morning walk is a setback, not a reason to give up. Persistence is the key to success. Stick with your program more days than not, and results will follow. Over the course of a year, even small changes can make a big difference. Walking 30 minutes a day will not make you thin overnight. Drinking one less soft drink, passing on doughnuts, and the money saved by skipping daily treats may seem insignificant. But sticking with small changes adds up. A positive attitude makes a difference. Focus on the benefits and what you get from sticking to the program, rather than what you are giving up. Obsessing about the sacrifices you are making guarantees failure. Banish this negativity from your thoughts. Steps to help manage money better in the coming year: • Know where your money goes. Fi nd out how much money comes in and exactly what you do with it. Carry a pad with you for a month or two and record every purchase. At the end of the month, separate your spending into no more than a dozen catego-

ries such as food, housing, and transportation. • Target eyebrow-raising surprises for spending cuts. If you have never tracked your spending, you may find you spend a lot for small, frequent expenses. If the amount of money you spend on something bothers you, do something about it. • Set realistic and specific goals. A specific goal includes the cost of the goal and the date you plan to reach it, such a s pla n n i ng to save $60 0 by next December for holiday gifts. The goal is realistic if you can afford to set aside $50 each month. If you cannot, adjust the goal or increase your income. • Develop a plan for spending to meet goals. Besides goals, your spending plan needs to include fixed, variable and occasional expenses. Fi xed ex penses a re t he same every month. Variable expenses go up or down each month. Occasional expenses are due less often than every m on t h . S om e o c c a s i on a l expenses, like birthdays and a n nu a l i n s u r a nce prem iums, you know about. Others, like medical bills, arise unexpectedly. • Pay yourself first. Saving whatever is left usually means not saving at all. Instead, put the money you need to save for goals and occasional expenses in your savings account before

you spend a penny for anything else. Better yet, arrange for an automatic deposit or payroll deduction into your savings account. When you get a raise at work, sign up for half the raise amount to go into a savings account or a company savings plan. • Eliminate debt. Pay attention to how much you pay in monthly finance charges on credit card and other debt. Instead of paying interest each month on your debt, you could be earning it on your savings. Being on the lending side of that transaction is a much better deal than being on the borrowing side. The money going to debt payments each month could be going to your savings. • Focus on one expense at a time. When making changes, it is easy to go too far, too fast. Commit to making a few changes at a time to reduce your spending. These simple suggestions can help you do better with the money you have. Some changes pay off more rapidly than others. The sooner you start, the more you stand to gain. For more research-based advice and resources to help build financial stability in 2014 visit econ/.

Beginning in October, Moreland Elementary School experienced something special and out of the ordinary, a guest teacher from Germany. From Oldenburg, Germany, Anneke Schallich spent the last three months at Moreland Elementary School with Janey Allen, one of its special education teachers. Schallich first interned with Allen when she was teaching at Poplar Road Elementary School. Recent ly, Sch a l l ich f i nished her teaching degree and is waiting to start her student teaching in February. In Germany, once their education is completed, teachers must student teach for an extended time before becoming a fullfledged teacher. Schallich had a bit of time before hers started, so she decided to work with Allen at Moreland and use that time learning more about special education. “I was never full exposed to kids with special needs,” she said. “I learned about that here. Never got that in university. [So without it] I would have had no idea how to deal with special needs.” “She has a great gift working with some of those kids,” said Allen. “She is good with autistic kids.” In the classroom, Schallich assisted Allen and other teachers. She taught about Germany and its culture — food, Christmas, and the differences between north and south. She also shared about public transportation there and showed them as wide a range of games

as possible. In addition to helping in Allen’s class, Schallich was able to teach German to the REACH students. “I want to show them it is fun to learn another language,” she said. Her teaching was communicative language teaching and included vocabulary, working with sentences, writing, playing games, and having the students speak as much German as possible. “She’s been amazing,” said Moreland Elementary School Principal Melanie Perry. “Who would know you could learn German in Moreland.” Schallich was able to experience many things outside of the classroom, too. She learned about American culture and traveled to Florida, Washington, D.C., and Philadelphia. Her favorite part, though, was celebrating Thanksgiving with Allen and her family. Schallich says she enjoyed her time here and really does not want to leave. “I got really attached to the kids,” she said. “I think I’m going to miss the kids.” I n add it ion to her t wo times teaching and studying in Georgia, Schallich has also worked and been to language school in Australia. She values the studying abroad she has done and cultures she has experienced. “It gives me a lot of self-confidence, makes me independent,” she said. “I can communicate with people from other cultures. It gives me understanding of other cultures and what they expect.” Her student teaching begins Feb 3 in Berlin, Germany.
