Coweta raises $200,000 for cancer research By Sarah Fay Campbell

The annual Coweta Relay for Life is always a memorable experience. A festive atmosphere accompanied the 12-hour fundraising event, with music, games, food and fellowship, held Friday. Te a m s were posit ioned around the track at the Coweta County Fairgrounds to raise money by selling food, glowing necklaces and other items such a s com memorat ive plaques and Christmas ornaments. Some teams generated funds by selling tickets for small games or for bounce houses and inflatable slides. There was also the MissTer Relay contest, where brave male team members dressed up like beauty queens and strolled the grounds, collecting money. “ T he whole com mu n it y comes out,” said Leslie Goodwin, principal of Poplar Road Elementary School. “My favorite part is I get to see teachers I’ve worked with over the

years,” as well as former students. At the Poplar Road tent, they sold races on Mario Kart for $1. Goodwin’s staff gets into the spirit of Relay fundraising all year long. The team orders lunch once a week, with proceeds collected for the team. The team sells “jean passes” as well, allowing fellow teachers and faculty to wear jeans for the day. This year’s Coweta Relay for Life included 81 teams and 822 participants. Together, the participants raised $200,000 for the American Cancer Society. T h i s ye a r ’s t heme wa s “super heroes” and several teams had superhero-inspired shirts and booths. “Everyone is a superhero fighting cancer,” said Trina Smith, as she spoke during the luminaria ceremony. The track was lined with luminaria bags, each with the name of someone who has cancer. “Every one represents a name, a face, and a smile,” Smith said. During the ceremony, most of the

lights at the fairgrounds were extinguished, and a large Chinese lantern was lit and sent into the sky. The motto of Relay for Life is always “celebrate, remember, fight back.” “Yes, we do celebrate,” said Smith. “We fight back so we won’t have to battle this disease anymore.” Though there have been great gains made in cancer treatment over the years, “the reality is that too many people die from cancer each year.” Jen n i fer Daum Freema n was diagnosed with stage two “triple negative” breast can-

employees at Turner Broadcasting have been participating in Relay in her honor for several years. Duncan said her battle with cancer “made me a better person.” “It brings people together… it makes people pull together,” she said. “It makes people love each other like they should.” “It’s been a long road, for a long time. But that’s life,” she said. “It hasn’t been easy, but what are you going to do? Give up?” People have told her she’s so strong and that they’ve admired her fight.

cer a year ago. “My life has changed,” Freeman said. People have asked her if she would change things. And no, she wouldn’t. She’s gotten so much more enjoyment out of life. “You live one day at a time,” she said. She was married in the middle of her treatment. Freeman said, “Everyone out there who has gotten through this or is going through this … keep fighting. Don’t give up that fight.” Susan Duncan agrees. She has battled cancer and was declared cancer-free about f ive years ago. Her fellow

But you have to fight. “You have to stay strong,” she said. Tw o m o n t h s a g o , h e r younger brother, Phil Thompson, was diagnosed with stage four lung cancer. She signed him up immediately to participate in Relay. He was in the hospital most of April, but was able to spend a little time at the relay late Friday. “It means a lot to me,” she said of the event. “I really wanted him to see this.” He got to participate in the Survivor’s Lap, always the first one of the relay. And luckily,

Alaska Salmon Pesto Pasta Salad

Family Features You’ve probably heard that eating seafood rich in heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids can help protect against heart disease while delivering other important nutrients. In fact, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) recom­ mends eating seafood twice a week for such benefits. Salmon is one fish long-heralded for its nutritional value, and Alaska canned salmon offers a convenient way to add more deliciously nourishing seafood to your diet. Whether your tastes lean toward a traditional croquette drizzled with a light dill sauce, or a refreshing take on a pesto pasta salad, canned salmon is easy to prepare and surprisingly

versatile. Because canned and pouched salmon is shelfstable, you can always have some on hand for a quick, tasty meal or flavorful snack. At the grocery store, simply look for “Alaska” on the lid or label to ensure a top-quality, wholly natural product with nothing added but a pinch of salt for flavor. T he s e re c ip e s s howc a s e how A l a s k a ca n ned sa l mon ca n be adapted to a wide range of meals and life­s tyles, from the indulgent to the über-healthy.

I will never be able to thank her for all she’s done in my life.” Of her husband, Connell said she learns something new from him every day. He is a teacher and football coach in Carroll County. Patel has been teaching in Coweta County since 2007.

She told the story of how he came to America by himself more than 25 years ago. When he arrived, he made his way in a strange and new place, and worked hard to make a life for his family. She remembered how he brought the family to America with few resources, but still worked to provide them “with opportunities for success.” In addition, Patel and her family members all prospered through the American educational system. Patel said she brings those experiences and commitments to her classroom and students, and views teachers similarly as heroes to their students. Patel was one of three finalists chosen from the Coweta school system’s 31 individual school teachers of the year. The other two finalists were Wendy Arnold, who teaches at Winston Dowdell Academy, and Arnold’s daughter, Amanda Connell, who teaches

Taking responsibility As dad to the three SONS of Thunder, one of the things I try to impart on them is to take responsibility for their actions. T hese life lessons, so to speak, always come after the Little Black Dress or I ask, “What were you thinking?” And that line is preceded by some action by one of the aforementioned SONS who, to put it simply, did something really dumb. Basically, they acted before they thought. It is not an uncommon action around our house. You leave the door open, the dogs will run away; you put your sandwich on the counter, Gigantor will eat it and

you will go hungry, or have to make another sandwich; you hit your brother, you will get hit or kicked back. And my favorite, when they decided to play Lord of the Flies or some such thing, was when one of them fashioned a crude spear and threw it at a sibling. “ W H AT W E R E YOU THINKING?!” Always followed by “I don’t know.” I am determined to ingrain in my boys that they must take responsibility. Too often in today’s society, we play the blame game. We couldn’t help it, not our fault, had a bad childhood, they started it, and on

Dig it, baby When life hands you lemons, make lemonade. When it hands you rabbits … make money. I will. But first, an apology. Not long after my wife and I moved into the home we plan to occupy until our favorite beach is rezoned for single-wides, we realized we were surrounded by wildlife. Unfortunately, not all the creatures are what you’d call “blessings.” Chief among the offensive vermin is an extended family of armadillos. We called them “quaint.” The only flaw in our slice of paradise was the yard, which had more holes than a miniature golf theme park. What caused the devastation, we wondered. Gophers like the ones Bill Murray battled in “Caddyshack”? Lawn leprosy? Had the previous owners been members of a cult that worshiped “hole-y” ground? We finally put two and two and Google together and figured out the yard was being ravaged by our “quaint” armadillos. Guns and neighborhoods don’t mix, so I purchased a Havahart trap, which allegedly captures critters painlessly for “relocation” to a more suitable location, which, in the case of armadillos, is at the right hand of Satan. I t r ied t he t rap for several weeks. The total catch

ALEX mcrae included a possum and two neighborhood cats. The trap went into storage. The problem persisted. We learned to live with it. But this spring a whole new crop of holes appeared. And these were different. Mostly because they were way too big to be made by an armadillo. Some of the holes could hold a bowling ball with room left over for a pair of rental shoes. One look at the massive craters convinced me to seek a different yard vandal. I think I found it. The second most numerous critters on our campus are rabbits. They are cute and fuzzy and we enjoy watching them bounce about and munch clover, hostas and garden vegetables. I knew Bugs Bunny dug up carrots but had never considered rabbits as bigtime excavators. Then I came across an interesting article from England. The UK Independent reported that a family of rabbits had just unearthed arrowheads, f lints and tools dating back over 8,000 years. Archaeologist Dean Paton was astonished. “They dug two little burrows right next to each other and all

JOHN WINTERS and on. A perfect example of this complete breakdown in responsibility came out in the last few days. A little background: On Oct. 28, 2012, 17-year-old Brandon Majewsk i a nd t wo friends hopped on their bikes to go get hotdogs around 1:30 a.m. It was dark and there was a slight rain. According to the Toronto Sta r, “Bra ndon was str uck from behind by an SUV and killed while his friend Rich-

these treasures were thrown out of the earth,” Paton said. “A family of rabbits have just rewritten the history books.” Paton really got my attention when he added, “It’s a gold mine.” I suddenly saw our bunnies in whole new light. Especially after I spotted one standing suspiciously near the largest new hole. I’m no businessman, but I know if rabbits can dig up artifacts worth a fortune, mine are going on the family payroll. There’s no telling what they’ll turn up. Native Americans were here in abundance years ago and I wouldn’t be surprised if the rabbits uncover loads of arrowheads, spear points, Hummel figurines and other artifacts. Maybe the lost Confederate gold. The Ark of the Covenant. Jimmy Hoffa. The bunnies might even turn up a “gold mine” of their own. I mean MY own. Right now, I’m doing whatever I can to keeps the rabbits happy. Mostly by leaving them alone. So far, they haven’t complained or threatened to join a union. This might be the best investment I ever made. Once the TV rights are sold to the History Channel I will graciously make the “historic” site available to visitors for a modest fee. Student and senior discounts, of course. A nd if the bunnies don’t hit paydirt? They better hope it doesn’t bring out my inner Elmer Fudd.

ard McLean, 16, was seriously injured with a broken pelvis and other bones. His other pal, Jake Roberts, 16, was knocked off his bike but sustained only scratches.” Here’s the kicker: “Now the driver of the SUV, Sharlene Simon, 42, a mother of three, formerly from Innisfil, is suing the dead boy for the emotional trauma she says she has suffered. She’s also suing the two other boys, as well as the dead boy’s parents, and even his brother, who has since died. She’s also suing the County of Simcoe for failing to maintain the road,” the newspaper reported. “In a statement of claim filed with the court, Simon is claiming $1.35 million in damages

due to her psychological suffering, including depression, anxiety, irritability and post-traumatic stress. She blames the boys for negligence,” according to the article, adding the claim says they were “incompetent bicyclists.” The story has taken on a life of its own and is spreading like wildfire across the Internet. Mrs. Simon is now in contention for title of “the most hated woman in the world.” No charges were filed in the accident, although authorities are considering reopening the case. The families of the victims have also sued, and claim Simon was drinking and/or texting. It should also be noted that Simon’s husband was following her in another car. He is a

police officer. It may have just been a horrible accident. Maybe Simon just didn’t see the teenagers. And why were the kids out so late? Questions upon questions remain. But again, it is about taking responsibility. And taking responsibility does not mean suing the family of a teenager killed by the vehicle you were driving. “ I ’m de v a s t a te d , I ’m i n shock,” Majewski’s mother, Venetta Mylnczyk, told the Toronto Sun. “She killed my child and now she wants to profit from it? She says she’s in pain? Tell her to look inside my head and she will see pain, she will see panic, she will see nightmares.”

Alaska Salmon Pesto Pasta Salad

Coweta students excel at state science fair

Prep time: 25 minutes Servings: 8 to 10

By Celia Shortt

• 8 ounces dry, small shell pasta • 2 to 3 teaspoons garlic, finely minced • 1/2 cup prepared basil pesto • 1/2 cup light Italian salad dressing • 1 zucchini, cut in 1/2-inch half-moon slices • 1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced • 3/4 cup frozen peas, defrosted • 1 can (14.75 ounces) traditional pack Alaska salmon or 2 cans or pouches salmon, drained and chunked • Salt and pepper, to taste

Two Coweta County students, Stephen Hess and Cortney Hutcheson, were recently honored at the 66th Georgia State Science and Engineering Fair at the University of Georgia. Hess is a seventh-grader at Madras Middle School. He earned first place in the energy and transportation category, as well as Junior Div ision Second Honors, which goes to those students in the 75th to 90th in the overall fair. His teacher sponsor is Rhonda Lewis. Hutcheson is a ninth-grader at East Coweta High School and her project focused on scrubbing carbon dioxide from car exhaust. At the state fair, she earned third honors in the senior division, a specia l awa rd for outstanding research in engineering for materials and bioengineering, and the Ricoh Corporation Sustainable Development Award. Her teacher sponsor is Dekima Leaphart. “Stephen and Cortney continue Coweta’s history of excellence in academic com-

Cook pasta according to package directions; drain well. Let cool slightly then toss with garlic, pesto and dressing. Set aside. Cook zucchini in covered microwav­able container on high 2 minutes or until just tender and bright green. Toss blanched zucchini, tomatoes, onion and peas into pasta and stir to combine. Gently fold in drained salmon; season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve immediately or chill before serving.

Alaska Salmon Cakes with Yogurt Dill Sauce Prep time: 21 minutes Servings: 4 • 1 egg • 1/4 cup small-curd nonfat cottage cheese • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill or 1 teaspoon dried dill weed • 1 teaspoon lemon pepper seasoning • 1/4 cup sliced green onions • 1 can (14.75 ounces) traditional pack Alaska salmon or 2 cans or pouches (6 to 7.1 ounces each) skinless, boneless salmon, drained and chunked • bread crumbs • Vegetable oil • Yogurt Dill Sauce In medium bowl, whisk egg lightly. Add cottage cheese, dill, lemon pepper and green onions; mix well. Mix in drained salmon, then sprinkle in bread crumbs and mix well. Shape mixture into 4 patties, 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick and 3 inches in diameter. Heat nonstick skillet over medium-high heat and brush skillet with oil. Fry salmon cakes for about 2 - 1/2 to 3 minutes per side. Cakes should be crisp and golden on the outside and still moist on the inside. Serve with Yogurt Dill Sauce.

petitions like the science fair,” said Donald White, science content specialist for the Coweta County School System. “ T hey emer ge d out of the largest field of competitors ever in Coweta history and overcame a challenging bunch of projects at the regional level.” Hess and Hutcheson were two of the more than 600 students participating in this year’s state science fair. White appreciates their hard work and what it means for them. “The fact that they were chosen for the honors they received out of the more than 600 students speaks to their innovation and dedication to research,” he said. “They are to be commended as are their parents and teachers for supporting them.” “These projects continue Coweta’s history of excellence in student research,” he added. Hess and Hutcheson were both the regional winners at the 2014 Coweta County Science and Engineering Fair held at the Centre for Performing and Visual Arts earlier this year.

Mix yogurt and garlic, and add salt and pepper to taste. Stir in dill and cucumber. Refrigerate, covered, until ready to serve.

Coweta Citizen of Year program taking nominations By Ellen Corker

Coweta’s Citizen of the Year program is expanding its period of nomination to include summer months. In past years, nomination time has come at the busy holiday season. Now, Citizen of the Year committee members want to give the community more time to prepare nominations, according to committee chair Bette Hickman. Nom i n at ion s w i l l now be accepted annually May through October, with a Nov. 1 final deadline. “The executive committee of the COTY membership met recently and agreed on a plan to extend the nomina-

tion time for the committee to receive the information for the selection of future recipients,” Hickman said. The 2015 honoree will be named at a banquet in February 2015. Newnan businessman and civic worker Frank Barron was named the 2014 Coweta Citizen of the Year at a gala banquet this past February at the Coweta County Fairgrounds conference center. The annual gala is hosted by the Newnan, Grantville, Coweta County and White Oak Golden K Kiwanis Clubs of Coweta County. For m ore i n for m a t ion on how to make a nomination, contact Hickman at
