A snapshot by a 14-year-old from Sandy Springs claims the top honors at a juried photography contest sponsored by the NewnanCoweta Historical Society. Arya Vishwanath was on a family vacation over spring break when she snapped several photos that she later turned into her teacher for a class project. He submitted the best to the historical society’s Simple Pleasures: the Nature Show photography contest, and the judges selected two of hers for display at the organization’s McRitchie-Hollis Museum. Arya and her parents were among the roughly 30 artists represented at a reception where last year’s winner, Julie Wynn, announced the judging. Wynn, an Alabamabased photography instructor, chose Arya’s for its vivid colors. “We took lots of pictures, and our teacher submitted them,” Ayra said. The winning shot was taken after a rain and captured the contrasting clouds and colors of the soil. The aspiring veterinarian used a consumer Cannon camera with the 35mm lens that came with it, not even relying on a tripod and extended shutter exposure time. The annual contest required that no manmade object be in the photograph. “That is very difficult to do,” said Jessie Merrell, the society’s curator. The reception wrapped up a month-long exhibit of the contest entries. The fall version of the contest will feature everyday simple pleasures, which can include man-made objects and people. Many in the past were of children, Merrell said.

Piedmont Healthcare expands locally and across state By MAGGIE BOWERS Added services are close to coming online at Newnan’s comprehensive hospital, thanks to various construction projects nearing completion and a partnership agreement due to be finalized soon.

Piedmont Newnan Hospital expansion

Mike Robertson, CEO of Piedmont Newnan Hospital, recently announced several improvements in the works for the nonprofit health care center on Poplar Road. The addition began with an expansion of conferencing rooms, including one adjoining the local hospital’s imaging reception area. Other projects currently underway incorporate an expansion of the facility’s catheterization laboratory along with the addition of an interventional radiology suite. “This is an exciting time for Piedmont Newnan,” Robertson said. “Providing high quality, patient-centered care close to home is a top priority and has a positive impact on both the patient and their page 4 family.” According to the hospital’s Communications Specialist Nicole Dillon, the

Coweta County has a higher-thanaverage rate of complications related to obstructive heart disease, with over 30 percent of local adults being obese, inactive, or having high blood pressure, according to Piedmont. These specialized services in heart care will serve to further promote the hospital’s goal of allowing patients to seek treatment close to home.

facility’s latest additions will include top-of-the-line imaging equipment and advanced treatment of percutaneous coronary intervention. PCI is a non-surgical procedure used to treat narrowing of the coronary arteries. Narrowing, or stenosis, is most commonly found in patients suffering from coronary artery disease. “The interventional radiology suite will be located on the first floor near the emergency room,” said Dillon. “Construction is underway, and we expect the addition to be completed at the end of July.” The expansion of the catheterization lab, Dillon added, will begin shortly after the IR suite. Interventional Radiology (IR) is a subspecialty of radiology that uses minimally invasive, imageguided procedures to diagnose and treat diseases. The imaging technology to be included at Piedmont Newnan will allow specialists to find and treat a variety of diseases in nearly every organ system without the risk of major incisions. “It is anticipated that the cath lab will be completed in October, at which time the hospital will begin offering PCI,” Dillon said.

Piedmont Medical Plaza In addition to Coweta’s nonprofit community hospital, the city of Newnan is also home to Piedmont Medical Plaza. The complex for non-emergency medical treatment was created with a focus on cancer-related services and includes medical oncology, radiation oncology and support services such as the Thomas F. Chapman Family Cancer Wellness Center. Construction of a new, $1.2 million breast center is currently underway at the plaza, according to Dillon, which will provide easier access to cancerrelated services and advanced technology for breast cancer screening. “Navigating health care can be a challenge, especially for breast cancer patients,” said Robertson. “We will 1 Xtra front



now be able to offer 3-D breast imaging technology.” In addition to imaging, the center will provide screening and diagnostic mammography, breast ultrasound, breast MRI and stereotactic and ultrasoundguided biopsies. The breast center is expected to be open to patients in June.

Piedmont Healthcare Piedmont Healthcare, a nonprofit organization which currently includes a system of seven hospitals and just under 100 Piedmont-affiliated physician practices, has recently announced negotiations to create a partnership with Columbus Regional Health. Two hospitals, a cancer center, an urgent care center and several physician practices would be included in the arrangement, making Columbus Regional Piedmont a hub for clinical services in Southwest Georgia, according to a recent press release from Piedmont Healthcare. “We share a commitment to highquality, patient-centered care with Columbus Regional and welcome this

More recently, he was diagnosed with epilepsy, or seizures. This secondary diagnosis is not uncommon in children with autism. Yet Mason continues on. His parents, Andy and Andrea Stewart Hinesley, say that despite epilepsy, he has never mis-

placed his sweet spirit and excitement for life. His outgoing personality is contagious and he is loved by everyone he meets. “This year we walked for Mason. After arriving home, I was told that Mason said to his parents, ‘I will never forget this day. Thank you,’” Harris said.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou annointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

Guests visit a Fayette County artist’s studio during the annual SHAST event in 2016.

Fifth annual Southern Hands Artist Studio Tour expands The Southern Hands A r t i s t S t u d i o To u r (SHAST), held in Fayette County for the past four years, will now expand to include studio and guest artists in Coweta County. A r t i st s i n t he Sout h Metro area and those in Fayette and Coweta who do not have studios are eligible to showcase and demonstrate art at participating artist studios in both counties. The deadline for artists in all counties to apply for participation in SHAST is May 30. SH AST was started by local ceramic artist Andrea Boswell to educate the public about the creative process and to inspire future a rt-

ists. T he tour a llows guests to visit the open studios of participating artists for a behind-thescenes glimpse of how they make their unique creations. Visitors are also given the chance to participate by creating with clay, painting, making ornaments or even learning the art of weaving. Artists will also offer works for sale during the tour and those who offer private lessons will offer information and sign-up opportunities. More than 15 artists are already signed up to participate in SHAST and the tour will include a variety of mediums such as painting, fused glass,

weaving, ceramics, jewelry, woodturning, fabric art, photography and mixed media. The annual tour is held in the second weekend in November and attendance is free and open to the public. Guests are provided a map of participating studios and may begin the tour at any studio. Refreshments are provided at some participating studios and several local restaurants and sponsors will offer special discounts to touring guests. For more i n for m ation on how to apply for SHAST or for more on the event visit www.

The current home came with new neighbors and a new varmint. T he neig hbors were fine. We got along and still do. The varmint was a different deal. I’d had countless wildlife encounters in other homes, but a dose of disc ou r a gem ent— or g u n powder—kept most at bay. T h is bad boy was different It was a possum. It was the first one I’d ever gotten close enough to evaluate. We got to know each other a little too well. Mostly because he came by almost every evening to scavenge food out of the cats’ dishes on the back deck. He was bold about it. W hen he showed up I could tap on the glass door to the deck and he’d just look and blink and keep eating. If I stepped onto the deck he looked and blinked twice and froze. If I got within five feet of him, he hissed and bared his teeth, but trotted off. He came several nights a week. He made life miserable for the cats and they made life miserable for me. I wasn’t armed at the time and called a friend for possum removal tips. He said what I needed to do was trap it and turn it loose in the next county so it couldn't find its way back. I told my friend I didn’t have a possum trap. He said, “I do. I’ll be there in 30 minutes.” He was. He whipped out a Havahart trap and set it on the trail the possum had carved out under some bushes. Three days later, the possum was in the trap. He wasn’t happy. When I got close he’d go all bug-eyed and snarl and snap and act like he was possessed. I didn’t want to transport him in that con-

dition, so I let him simmer. A couple of days later, he had slowed down some. In fact, he looked dead. I poked him with a stick and he wasn't. By then, I had a different problem. I didn’t want the possum nagging me and the cats, but I'd gotten so used to it I didn’t want to hurt it, either. I took the trap—complete with possum—to a brushy area at the edge of the yard and opened the trap door so it could leave. It lay there as if dead. Even a poke with a stick didn't make it stir. The next day it still seemed dead, but I caught him breathing lightly. On the third day the possum rose from the cage and fled. I never saw him again, but I’m glad I didn’t have the heart to hurt him. A m e r i c a n h u m or i s t Will Rogers once said, “I never met a man I didn't like.” Will Rogers never said that about a possum. Possums don’t have an upside. They are smelly and nasty and make evil

faces and gobble the vegetables right out of your garden. Mine was a mess, but I’m glad he got away. I’m even more glad I didn’t use another method of possum removal that just hit the news. Authorities said a Lancaster, Pennsylvania, man had a possum problem, too. He didn’t try to trap it. He had heard possums didn't like smoke so the man lit a pile of brush in his front yard, hoping the smoke would run off the possum. Sure enough, the fire started and the possum f led. But not because it hated smoke. It ran to escape the ensuing fire, which gutted the possum burner’s house. The smoked Pennsylvania possum hasn’t been back. I hope it’s happy. People say possums are stupid. Based on this story, some homeowners aren’t so bright, either. Send your email comments to: alexmmcrae@

Ashley Graham is a woman with curves but don’t say plus-size By ALICIA RANCILIO, Associated Press Ashley Graham may have curves, but she hates the term plus-size. “Does any woman really just come in and say, ‘I’m a plus-size woman’? Maybe as a defense mechanism or maybe as a way to kind of cope with fitting into society but ... I just think it’s divisive. I think labeling and putting a name on women in certain categories because (of) a (size) number inside of their pants isn’t really getting us any farther in life.” She made it into the mainstream when she appeared on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2016 issue. That led to other opportunities, including the cover of Vogue magazine and a gig as a judge on “America’s Next Top Model.” Now Graham has written a memoir, “A New Model: What Confidence, Beauty & Power Really Look Like” (Dey Street Books).

She talked about her role models, achievements and critics in a recent interview with The Associated Press. Associated Press: You’re an advocate for healthy body acceptance. How is the fashion industry responding? Graham: The fashion industry is into it. (Laughs.) I think what’s really great is the fashion industry has really said, ‘You know what, we’re about inclusion right now.’ We’ve had the body era. We’ve had the waif era, now here we are in the inclusivity era and it’s race, it’s age, it’s gender, it’s size. AP: You’re known for your curves but you’ve been criticized for photos where it appears that you’ve lost weight. What do you say to that? Graham: My weight is going to go up and down but, also, nobody can dictate what I’m doing. I’m a true size 14, I’m happy with my body, nobody has dictatorship over who I am.

AP: You also write in your book about fashion and curvy girls and how hard it is to find great clothes in bigger sizes. Graham: I don’t know who’s making those clothes. I’m ready to come out with a line of clothes that’s affordable, that’s for all sizes. The beauty of being a curvier girl is that we’re all shaped so differently. But it’s sad because I really think there’s a lot of designers who do go up to a size 22, 24 but buyers are not buying them because they don’t think we’re gonna come in and buy it. So, it’s a vicious cycle, and I don’t know where it starts and stops ... all I know is I’m talking about it and there are some designers who have been very open. Prabal Gurung is one who put curvy girls on the runway. Christian Siriano and Michael Kors, too, so it’s happening. AP: You have a stylist and you know designers. Have any said they won’t dress you? Graham: I haven’t experienced first-

hand negative feelings of designers not dressing me because of my size, but if I did ... you’d hear about it. (Laughs.) AP: You also are a believer in vision boards, which are supposed to help people focus on specific life goals. Graham: Vision boards are so important. If it’s not even an actual vision board up in your room, then write down what you want. There’s really something about getting it out and putting (it on) paper or a corkboard or whatever your thing is. I’m not a DIY girl whatsoever. It’s really for me to be able to see something before I go to bed and when I wake up in the morning to remember what I want, but also to say, you know what, let god’s will be done and hopefully this works out. I had Sports Illustrated on there, I had Vogue on there. It took me a couple years for the whole vision board to happen, but here we are.

Venice Biennale taps artistic angst amid rising nationalism By COLLEEN BARRY, Associated Press With nationalism on the rise, political engagement is central to the artistic dialogue at the Venice Biennale, the world’s oldest contemporary art fair, opening Saturday. From the main show, “Viva Arte Viva,” curated by Christine Macel, to 87 national pavilions in the Venice Giardini, Arsenale and throughout the historic city center, artists are contemplating the world around them and giving a voice to under-represented populations. Macel said artists “are able to respond to this moment of complexity” even if art “should not be reduced to politics.” The show runs through Nov. 26. Here are some highlights.

Europe’s refugee crisis. One film explores how the Dutch self-narrative papered over the difficult assimilation of mixed-race children of Dutch and Indonesian parents after Indonesia’s independence. Artist Wendelien van Oldenborgh discusses the issues in three short films. Because the children entered the country smoothly as Dutch citizens, vast differences in their experiences have been overlooked, from those who were abandoned by their white fathers and impoverished, to the wealthy, well-educated arrivals who still found barriers to assimilation.

Visitors can engage with the migrants — for many a faceless, nameless category repeated on the news — maybe pitching in, maybe asking their stories. Eliasson says being a migrant is not an identity, but a condition. “What we see is ourselves,” Eliasson said. “The migrants are a little bit like actors in a play. Fair enough. But I am doing it on the condition that they are volunteers. They are given a subjective space, they are not being objectified.” An immigration lawyer and psychological counselor are among 90 volunteers participating. The project aims to help the migrants learn skills, and build self-esteem, while exploring a platform that could be repeated in other contexts.


BREXIT MELANCHOLY Phyllida Barlow’s show of sculptures for the United Kingdom’s pavilion titled “folly” isn’t about overtly about politics, but that did seep into the work as the Brexit campaign raged around her. “As I was making the work, I began in April, before the refer-


Berlin-based artist Olafur Eliasson’s “Green light” is an onsite workshop where 100 migrants create lamps lit by green bulbs from simple materials.

The Dutch pavilion examines the Netherland’s self-image as progressive and tolerant, which has been put to the test during


endum, I had this sense of unease, melancholia really, about this idea of occupying the British pavilion and what it means to be British ... when it’s leaving Europe and I feel I’m European,” Barlow said. She said the mood permeated her sculptures, which while robust “show fragility, and a sense of things being uneasy.”

HUNGARIAN UTOPIA For the Hungarian pavilion, artist Gyula Varnai discusses the “viability and necessity of utopias” in his show titled “Peace on Earth.” He uses many defunct communist symbols, including a reproduction of a large neon Peace on Earth sign from a building in Hungary, to a rainbow made of 8,000 pins bearing Cold War-era symbols. Curator Zsolt Petranyi said they asked themselves “is it true, that we can just speak about dystopias, that there is not any positive vision? “ He realized that technology

has become utopia’s stand-in, “covering the deeper problems of today. Wherever you go, from China, to Africa, to India, if there is a new kind of television, a new kind of whatever, everybody is celebrating it.”

ILLEGAL JOURNEYS With cinematic tableaus, photographer Tracey Moffatt recreates scenes of “journeys, secret journeys, illegal journeys,” in a series called “Passages” for the Australian pavilion. The opening photograph features a mother grasping a child seen through a fog looking out over the sea. “The baby is squirming. The baby will leave her. She might be giving the baby away for her passage. There are many scenarios,” Moffatt said. While the scenes bring to mind modern-day migrants, Moffatt said “for me it is old fiction. A fake old film. It is a celluloid that I claim I found in a vault.”

By SARAH FAY CAMPBELL Coweta County will be seeking state and federal funding for operational and safety improvements to Poplar Road. Getting the road project “programmed” by being added to the Tra nsportation Improvement Program by the Atlanta Regional Commission is the first step in a long process to access state and federal funds. The Coweta County Board of Commissioners voted to file a grant application with the ARC for $16.9 million for the project. Coweta County would be responsible for a 20 percent match. The ARC is currently accepting applications for the 2017 TIP project solicitation. There is approximately $200 million available for fiscal years 2018 – which begins July 1 – to FY 2021. The proposed improvements wou ld r u n from just ea st of Newnan Crossing Boulevard all the way to Hwy. 16. The plan is not to four-lane the road, but to ma ke other improvements to improve traffic flow and safety. T he improvements a re intended to help accommodate increased traffic that is expected once the new Interstate 85 interchange at Poplar Road opens.

The intersection with Mary Freeman Road will likely need longer turn lanes, and improvements will need to be done to the intersection with Parks Road, sa id Tod Ha nd ley, Cowet a’s director of transportation and engineering. There may need to be some changes, such as long turn lanes, to the intersection with Hwy. 16. Handley said he also anticipate s s a fet y i mprovement s such as shoulder widening and guardrails. The funding would pay for preliminary engineering, rightof-way acquisition, utility relocation and construction. There’s no guarantee that the funding will be awarded, and the project will be several years off. The Poplar Road interchange is set to open in 2019.

In other meeting business: • The commissioners approved the use of various county roads during the Tour de Cure bicycle ride June 3 and a benefit ride by the Southside Cycling Club on July 8. Commissioner Tim Lassetter said he wanted to ask the cyclists to “stay single file and not try to take up half a road.” There have been some groups that are great about that, he said. But other times, “constituents

call me and say ‘Hey, they’re blocking half the road,’” he said. “Their safety and the safety of all the citizens traveling our county roads are important to all of us.” • The commissioners approved a resolution of support for a roundabout at the intersection of U.S. Hwy. 29 North and the proposed Mad ras Con nector project. The Georgia Department of Transportation has determined that a roundabout will be the proper solution for the intersection when the Madras Connector road is built. Phase one of the road will come off Herring Road and have a bridge over the railroad track, and will intersect Hwy. 29 at the fire station in Madras. Phase II, which may be built at the same time, will go from Hwy. 29 to Happy Valley Circle. • The commissioners awarded a contract to Blount Construction Company to do road repair on 7.484 miles of county roads a nd subdivision streets. T he roads will get a “full depth recla mation” treatment a nd t he work will be funded with Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax dollars.
