Piedmont babies head for home

Another Piedmont Newnan preemie has left the care of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) for the comforts of home. Micropreemie William Henderson, the earliest in gestation to be born at the local hospital at just 23 weeks, was released Jan. 26 after 98 days in the unit. “William has adapted remarkably well to being home,” said mother, Kellie Henderson. “He is continuing to grow and is now up to 5 pounds, 9 ounces.” The infant, dubbed “Sir William” by Piedmont’s NICU staff, arrived

The Miller family of Newnan has welcomed two of their four infants home after more than two months of neonatal intensive care at Piedmont Newnan Hospital. Kortney and Justin Miller’s daughter and three sons were the first quadruplets to be born at the local hospital, and their progress is being cheered on by locals throughout the county. “Brandon, or ‘Baby A,’ was able to come home Jan. 27,” Kortney Miller said. “And, Kenlee, our only girl, is also home now.” The Women’s Services staff at Piedmont Newnan was notified of the expected quadruplets just after Miller reached her second trimester of

Run for Angels celebrates 15 years

By MAGGIE BOWERS maggie@newnan.com

Hundreds of locals came together on Feb. 4 in support of Angel’s House, a shelter for girls saved from situations of abuse and neglect. The organization hosted its largest annual fundraiser, the Run for Angels & Chicken Q , in downtown Newnan. This was the 15th year for the event. The event included a onemile run, 5K and 10K road races and a plated barbecued

chicken lunch for purchase. Money raised goes to help keep the local safe haven open and available for children in need throughout the year, according to coordinator Bambi Edge. “It was cold but warmed up quickly, of course,” said 5K participant and Newnan TimesHerald employee Bronwyn Coffeen-Mercer. “I really enjoyed the course for the 5K, which included challenging inclines and a beautiful view of downtown Newnan.” Races were professionally

ma naged by Orion R aci ng using chip-timing technology to ensure accurate finish times, which can be used to qualify for the popular Peachtree Road Race in Atlanta. The run was held in conjunction with the Chicken Q , which was hosted by the First United Methodist Church of Newnan. Huckleberry’s Catering & BBQ provided plates of food served to race participants as well as community members, all benefitting Angel’s House. 1 Xtra front

Many families have different traditions they look forward to each holiday season, and the Ridley family in Newnan looks forward to their annual display of hundreds of snowmen. Linda Ridley has put her snowmen out for everyone to see for over 20 years. “She gets them out every year for the family,” said Buck Ridley, Linda’s son. “The family can bring over whoever they want to see them. She has one that’s 20 feet fall and some all the way down to an inch. She’s been collecting them for years.” Linda Ridley has snowmen made from glass, crochet, pillows, stuffed snowmen and fiber optic ones. Snowmen are also distributed to every room in the house, including the bathrooms. She begins the Friday after Thanksgiving by taking the books down from a bookcase where some will be displayed and getting the snowmen out of the storage of the family business, Coweta Car Care in Sharpsburg. It takes her about two weeks to put the snowmen in their respective places. “We call it the snowmen migration,”

on Oct. 17, a full 17 weeks earlier than expected. The infant weighed little more than a single pound and required immediate, specialized care. Parents Kellie and Kelly Henderson were frightened by their son’s extremely early arrival, but were thankful to be able to remain close to him during his long stay at Piedmont Newnan. “We will forever be grateful for the professionalism, expertise and compassion shown by the Piedmont Newnan NICU,” Kellie added. William’s departure was bittersweet to several members of the NICU staff, who were able to get to know the infant and his immediate family well. Jamie Arrington, a registered nurse on the neonatal care team, was involved with William’s care from the beginning. Arrington said she loves being able to watch the growth and witness the milestones of every infant in the neonatal unit. “I was William’s delivery nurse, so I saw his journey from birth to going home,” Arrington said. “The initial struggles, all of his accomplishments and how far he’d come along the way, I watched the miracle unfold.” Like many locals, the Piedmont RN said she looks forward to continuing to see “Sir William” grow through news updates and social media posts by the Henderson family. “Kelly and I are so happy and thankful to have our little miracle home with us,” Kellie said.

preg na ncy. A tea m of experts was assembled for the multiple birth, which occurred without medical intervention on Dec. 16. At 29 weeks gestation, the babies were delivered via cesarean section, each weighing less than 4 pounds. “Brandon is 5 pounds, 3 ounces. He was the biggest baby from the beginning,” Miller said, noting that it seemed almost humorous to acknowledge such a tiny infant as big. This was Millers’ second birth at Piedmont. Son Brentlee was born in 2013. “Brentlee was just over 7 pounds at birth,” Miller marvelled. “And the quadruplets are already two months old.” The Miller family continues to rotate visits to the hospital, sharing both love and encouragement with the two infants in the household as well as sons Braydon and Bryant, who remain in the neonatal intensive care unit at Piedmont. Miller explained that the two boys are doing very well, but aren’t quite ready to join the family at home. With two infants and a four-year-old son at home, the Millers are already facing a daunting task, but Miller said a necessary schedule is in place. The local mother explained that though they haven’t welcomed visitors yet due to the infants’ fragility, several family members have been enlisted to assist and friends and com mun it y members have continued to reach out with donations of

items like diapers, clothes and money. “Right now my mom is here helping. Justin’s parents help too and are ready for when Braydon and Bryant get home,” M i l ler ex pla i ned. She added that, despite some initial concern, Brentlee loves to help with his brother and sister. “ I wo r r i e d t h a t h e would be jealous, but he just adores the babies,” Miller said.

The Times-Herald Xtra

The Big Chill(er) By Alex McRae Special to The Newnan Times-Herald President Trump will soon meet Russian President Vladimir Putin face to face. Some people predict a bad outcome. Not me. The fact that Putin loves to pose shirtless on horses and hunt wild animals with his bare hands could be reason to question his judgment, but no one—no one—has ever proved in a Russian court that he actually ordered dissident journalists and political enemies to be killed. Putin is not a sweetheart, but I suspect war with the UK, EU, NATO or the USA is the last thing on his

the critter is being developed into a secret weapon by Putin’s mad scientists.

mind. Putin won’t talk war until he’s ready to deploy his new superweapon. What is it? Here’s a hint: when is the last time you heard a peep about Russia’s space program? Yeah. Me, neither. That’s because the Russia ns a re developing a weapon that doesn’t attack from the skies, but from deep beneath the sea. It’s a giant killer octopus that, according to the UK Daily Mail can “Hypnotize its prey and paralyze humans at a distance of 150 feet.” The beast also sports toxic venom. It has 14 legs. T he a rticle included a photo. The Daily Mail reported

Before you get started, stop. Ye s , I k now t he Daily Mail is a British tabloid newspaper. And yes, I know some British tabs are infamous for printing items that are questionable and sometimes, totally false. The Daily Mail is different. T he ver y day I started writing this, the Mail published an actual true story—with actual cop quotes and pictures— about a Philadelphia man who hijacked a cab, shed his clothes and went on a naked, drunken joyride through the City of Brotherly Love. That’s real. That's news. But I d ig ress. Back to

deadly cephalopods. According to the article, the beast was found in a freshwater lake located 2 miles beneath the surface of Antarctica. Brrr. The scientific team was led by Dr. Anton Padalka. The monster was named Organism 46-B. The creature does not yet have a street name. I’m pulling for Ice Kold Killa. Sorry, that was insensitive. Especially since it was also reported that the creature killed two of the scientists who found it. Maybe they should have waited until Killa had his Koffee. The story doesn’t reveal how the scientists traveled 2 miles below the icy Antarctic surface to chill with Killa. Uber may have been involved. Once the creature was

found, death followed. Dr. Padalka was quoted as saying, “We encountered Organism 46-B on our first day. It disabled our radio. It is also able to paralyze prey by releasing its venom into the water. “ Tra g ic a l ly, my colleague and lifelong friend was killed this way. He tread(sic) water wearing a blissful smile as the organism approached him.” D r. Pad a l k a s a id he watched helplessly as the beast used its tentacles to tear off his colleague’s head. The monster then “popped the remains in its mouth.” Dr. Padalka also said the beast was also able to disguise itself as a “human diver.” Can you say “perfect

killing machine?” The scientists captured Killa. It was immediately seized by Russians toting guns and wearing heavy winter clothing. Padalka sa id t hey were P uti n’s people. T he Com m ies h ave K i l la . Draw you r ow n conclusions. Trump and Putin will meet soon to discuss ways our nations can coexist in peace and harmony. The news media may not tell the truth about how those talks went. The best way to f ind out is to hit the beach this summer. If you see “Don’t Go Near the Water” signs, ignore them at your peril. Send your email comments to alexmmcrae@ gmail.com

Theatre Review: Newnan Theatre Company

‘One Slight Hitch’ by Lee Woods I think it’s safe to say weddings can be a stressful time for any family. The decisions to be made, then, an endless to-do list, as each decision becomes someone’s chore. My own favor ite wedd i ng, no, it wasn’t my own, was a fairly simple family affair a few years back. We all met on a mountaintop. Everyone brought food. The bride brought a box of r u st ic de corat ion s and everyone pitched in to sling it all about. The ceremony was heartfelt, homemade and perfectly charming (Best of all, that couple is still quite happily hitched). A wedding was at the heart of NTC’s latest, the Lewis Black comedy, “One Slight Hitch.” Yes, that Lewis Black, the guy who always seems one frothy mouthful away from an aneurism. For a l l h i s on st a ge angst, his play is another matter. It’s actually quite sedate, a fairly standard

situational comedy. The situation: The Coleman family, Doc, wife Delia, and three daughters, are marrying off one of the girls. It’s to be a backyard affair, but the play takes place in the Coleman’s living room, so the main to-do is happening just offstage. W h a t t h e a ud i e n c e got was the “backstage” drama. The doubts, complications, and the backstories. I won’t go into all that as, well, that’s the play and it’s a pretty tame affair. Those who take offense at the profane or obscene wouldn’t have a thing to complain about here. The laughs, sadly, were also more absent than one has a right to ex pect. T h is is Lew is Black, for goodness sake. The man makes his living making us snort. But, I’m going to go out on my critical limb here and say, comedians should stick to their standup routines. I saw Larry David’s show on

Broadway last year (Fish in the Dark) and friends, it was a bust. Steve Martin has done a fairly credible job with a couple of solid plays under his belt, but leave the playwriting to the playwrights, I say. Now, b e yond go o d , solid writing, the thing about comedy, any comedy, is energ y. Thin k, Kramer, busting into Jerry’s place. Think of the speed of the dialogue in Gilmore Girls. Think of the way the human drama amped up the stakes in MASH. Comedy should sing. It should zip along at Atlanta interstate speeds – in the fast lane. Pacing – keeping the lines right on top of each other – must be tight. This production sedately motored along at about 30 miles an hour. At one point the mother, Delia, played by Mary Caroline Moore, takes a pill to relax as the wedding seems to be crashing around her. Trouble is, the entire cast seemed to have

dosed themselves before t hey a mbled on st a ge . With one exception: Tony Daniels, playing Doc the Dad tried, he really did, to keep things moving. It’s a valiant effort but largely wasted. The set was credible, workable, with a stunn i n g ly pa i nte d f lo or. Lighting and sound were fine. I wish Director Terri Whitley had brought out the chair and whip and used it to get her cast to tighten up, pick it up and bring some much-needed verve and zest to the production, I really do. Because after all, who doesn’t like a wedding? Editors note: “One Slight Hitch” is no longer available at the Newnan Theatre Company. However, beginning March 9, the local theatre will present “Godspell,” based on the novel by John Michael Tebelak, with music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz. “Godspell” will be presented March 9 - 12 and 16
