f you want to know where musician Hamilton Bohannon was bor n , just t u r n on Ha m i lton Bohannon Drive and look for the sign. Bohannon, who grew up in Newnan and now lives in south Fulton County, was in his hometown Tuesday as Peachtree Street, the street where he grew up, was renamed in his honor. Morning events included changing the signs at each end of the street, remarks by Bohannon and Newnan Mayor Keith Brady and the unveiling of a marker at the home where the musician, a lead figure in the emergence of disco, was born. “This day has been a long time

coming,” Brady said. He said that because of his work and accomplishments, Bohannon could be anywhere in the world. But he chose to be back in Newnan. Bohannon has been active in many aspects of music – as a bandleader, a songwriter, a percussionist and a record producer. He has performed with Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Diana Ross and numerous other luminaries. “His inf luence continues today with today’s artists. There are still artists out there who understand their musical lot in life and what they are able to accomplish is because of people like Hamilton Bohannon,” Brady said.

Bohannon said his advice to budding musical artists would be to anticipate high and low times. “There will be a dark day. You have to prepare for that,” he said. Bohannon talked about people he had gotten to know in the process of the road renaming – mentioning Brady, city council members Cynthia Jenkins and George Alexander and community activist Don Chapman. “These have become my new friends,” he said. The final event of the morning was the unveiling of the plaque at Bohannon’s birthplace by his daughter, April Bohannon, and the oldest living member of the family, Howard Bohannon.

Animal shelter to offer free, low-cost adoptions By SARAH FAY CAMPBELL sarah@newnan.com Some dogs at Coweta’s animal shelter can be adopted free of charge, for a limited time. The shelter is overcrowded, and in an effort to help that problem, Coweta County Animal Control is offering free adoption of animals that have been at the shelter for over 120 days. Dogs and cats that have been at the shelter between 90 and 120 days may be adopted for half of the standard adoption fee. As of last week, there were over 30 dogs that had been at the shelter at least 90 days, according to Tom Corker, Coweta communications

“As of last week, there were over 30 dogs that had been at the shelter at least 90 days.” — Tom Corker, Coweta Communications Manager

manager. Though there aren’t any cats who have been there more than 60 days, “We have such an abundance of cats, we have chosen to reduce the adoption fee by half,” said Warden Bill McKenzie, director of Coweta Animal Control. All animals adopted from Coweta County Animal Control are spayed or neutered, vet-checked and micro-

chipped, and have at least their first round of shots. The standard adoption fee at animal control is $70 for cats and $126 for dogs. The shelter is located at 91 Selt Road in Newnan. Adoption hours are 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday. For more i n for m at ion , c a l l 770-254-3735.

The American science-fiction writer Walter Jon Williams once said, “Being a writer was never a choice, it was an irresistible compulsion.” Local writer Angie Gallion describes her own passion for writing in much the same way, though the author admits to suppressing the urge to pen her first novel for several years. Gallion, a Newnan resident, novelist and self-publisher, discovered her creative writing ability in the third grade when her teacher challenged the class with using each week’s vocabulary words in a short story in order to learn both the meaning and usage of the new terms. “She was consistently impressed with mine, and I adored the praise,” Gallion said. “It would be the first time I was ever called ‘a writer,’ and it stuck with me.” The same instructor would often ask her students to read the short stories aloud to the class, another task Gallion enjoyed thoroughly. From there, Gallion continued writing as a hobby; it was something she enjoyed and felt compelled to do. In high school, the author honed her skills by writing short stories and unpublished novels in a partnership with a close friend. Gallion explained that she would write a bit, then her friend would contribute, and the two would go back and forth creating collaborative stories together. “My first published novel, ‘Intoxic,’ is actually 25 years in the making,” Gallion said. “It was a college assignment for a creative writing class.” While studying English at Eastern Illinois University, Gallion penned a novella involving a young male who is diagnosed with leukemia and his female friend who is faced with coming to terms with the possibility of losing him. The story was well-received by her professors who later asked Gallion to return to the book and expand it during the pursuit of a master’s degree in writing. The writer did expand her work,

Hoops Sports Bar loses licenses By CLAY NEELY clay@newnan.com The doors to a local sports bar are officially closed after losing both its business and alcohol licenses in the wake of a police raid last month. This week, Coweta County officials revoked the alcohol and business license for Hoops Sports Bar and Grill where dozens of people were arrested during a probation-compliance check in June. County officials confirmed

the violations weighed heavily into their decision to revoke both licenses. Over 25 men were taken into custody after authorities with the Coweta County Sheriff ’s Office allegedly received multiple complaints about marijuana being openly smoked and sold inside the business. In the letter sent to owner Jasmine Arnold by the Coweta County business license office, f indings for the revocation included the discovery of methamphetamine, crack cocaine,

66 grams of marijuana, and a loaded .22 caliber Ruger pistol on the premises by law enforcement during the June raid. Evidence was also presented to the business license department that stated an employee and the performer at the bar had been convicted of dealing in narcotics in the last five years, a violation of county ordinance 6-101. Mondel Whitaker, also known as M.Deezy, was performing a “welcome home” concert celebrating his release from prison

– an event that was heavily promoted through Facebook, officials said. Whitaker was convicted of possession of cocaine with intent to distribute in 2013. T he ordina nce states it ’s “unlawful to employ any person in any capacity, including performers, entertainers and musicians who have been convicted within the past five years, by this or any other state, of soliciting for prostitution, pandering, letting premises for prostitution, keeping a disorderly place, illegally dealing in narcotics,

sex offenses, or of any offense related in the manufacture or sale of alcoholic beverages.” The owner of the bar, Jasmine Arnold, has five days to appeal the revocation of the alcohol license, and 30 days to appeal the loss of the business license to the Coweta County Board of Commissioners. She was unable to be reached for comment on Thursday. Clay Neely: clay@newnan. com, @clayneely

changing the premise and even the characters, but felt unable to submit the novel as her thesis. “I just couldn’t,” Gallion admitted. “Just the thought of having this first, raw, piece of work critiqued by a panel of judges was more than I could handle.” T he aut hor wa l ked away from “Intoxic” — and away from the pursuit of a master’s degree. Fa s t-fo r w a r d m o r e than 10 years and the aspiring college novelist found herself a happily married mother of two little girls, then aged 5 and 6, living in Newnan. Gallion’s daughters had begun school, leaving her a space of free time in which to pursue some of the goals she had put to rest after college. It was a house that led her back to “Intoxic” and two subsequent novels that would be published back-toback in the course of one year. “My husba nd a nd I enjoyed looking at homes. We weren’t really planning to buy a new home,” Gallion explained, “But, we l i ked to look a nd imagine ourselves possibly living there.” With the help of a local rea l estate agent a nd friend, the couple wandered about the county dreaming of the possibilities of the future, when they stumbled upon a house overlooking a lake and simply “knew it was meant for us.” “We visited one house in which the homeowner just happened to be outside,” Gallion explained. “She agreed to let us walk around the property and then invited us inside. We both knew that the house truly was perfect for us.” Later, when the couple toured the home on an official walk-through, Gallion said she could envision herself living in the home – so much so that it gave her chills. They made an offer on t he home a nd wou ld m ove i n le s s t h a n a month later. “Something about the space made me feel rooted, like the home I grew up in. Then, I just felt compelled to start writing again,” Gallion said. She began by rediscovering “Intoxic.” Gallion explained that she wanted to know that she could finish something. It was as though the book was the one thing left in her life at the time that simply needed to be tied up in order to feel complete. The author said once she found and reread the novel, she realized it was finished – and she could finally let it go.

“From there I hired an editor who had come to me by referral. She read t he book , made edits and suggestions, some of which I accepted and some I declined,” Gallion said. One the manuscript was completed, t he author considered finding an agent and, eventually, a publisher. She decided instead that “it was really just a project I needed to complete,” and maybe not something that would “be a huge success.” Gallion made

the decision to take the somewhat stigmatized route of self-publication, naming her possibly onetime publishing business Beech House Press, after her own street name where she now lives in the house that called her to write again. Alison Hayes, the main character in her debut novel “Intoxic,” is not Gallion herself, but is a amalgamation of people the author has met throughout her life, particularly while growing up in Illinois. The story

begins on Alison’s 16th birthday where the teen accepts the lack of celebration as part of her somewhat disappointing and often difficult young life. “It wasn’t long before friends and family began to share the book and I ended up with a group of readers who wanted to k now what A l ison would do next,” Gallion said. “I wrote a sequel in just three months, then another in 30 days.” Links to the three novels, “Intoxic,” “Purgus,”

and “Icara,” can be found on Gallion’s website at www.angiegallion.com. A lison’s adventures aren’t over, Gallion said, but she needs some time to mature. The author plans to allow the series to rest awhile, while she begins work on a new series still to be titled. “I’m 40,000 words into my new novel, which features a new character, Stacie Evans,” Gallion said. “She is a wife and mother whose mother passed away unexpectedly, and she is left to

sort through her mother’s belongings along with her brother. Along the way she learns a lot about the woman she had a tenuous relationship with.” The author said the life and developments of the new character will likely be written in a series of books similar to that of Alison. Writing, Gallion admitted, was clearly her path all along, and one her family wholeheartedly supports.

Washing wars T

his one defines “fighting dirty.” S oap m a ker Wo ol ite has declared war against the washing machine industry. At least when it comes to washing what are known as “delicates.” “Delicates” include underwear, and the cleaning pros at Woolite are claiming no one needs to use a big, mean, wa sh i ng m ach i ne to get their unmentionables showroom fresh. They can do it all by themselves with a little help from Woolite—and the ever-popular Salad Spinner. If you were bor n a fter 2000—or never watch latenight TV—you may not have hea rd of a Sa lad Spi n ner. It ’s actua lly pretty ha ndy. The Salad Spinner washes and removes water from salad ingredients. You stick your greens in the machine, hose t hem off a nd sta r t cra n king. Centrifugal force slings

the water off the greens and into the reservoir at the bottom of t he Spi n ner, leaving your salad fixings bright, sh i ny a nd ready to eat. But people have discovered that a salad Spinner isn’t just great for cleaning your greens. It can do your drawers, too. Just slam them in the Salad Spinner, add water and soap, crank like crazy, and you’re good to go. The Salad Spinner is made by Ronco, t he sa me company that invented the ChopO -M at ic , M r. M icrophone and the Pocket Fisherman, so you know it’s a good product. W hen the spinning underwear craze went viral, Woolite paid attention. Woolite is the go-to soap for garments that need to be treated to y o u r w a s h i n g m a c h i n e ’s “gentle” cycle or laundered by hand. The company f igured if people were going to wash and dry their drawers

process, saying, “Although t he l i fe h ack m ay seem strange, people swear by it.” One of them is CaratheBug (her spelling, not mine), a regular contributor to “Busty Girls Comics.” Cara swore the Woolite/Salad Spinner combo was also great for brassieres. “Fel low possessors of boobage!” she wrote. “Check out s a l ad s pi n n er s . S er iously.” P ic t u res fol lowed . An article in the Huffington Post praised the bra-washing technique, too. “Be honest,” the story said. “When was the last time you hand-washed your bras? We’re going to guess that it’s sometime between ‘Never’ and ‘Wait, I’m supposed to hand wash them?’ “ Well, we’ve discovered a crazy-clever method— and it involves your Salad Spinner.” The article also advised women to “Try not to wear the same bra more than two days in a row.”

Awesome advice. That’s the same formula I use with my underwear. “Two days in use, turn ‘em loose,” is my motto. Persona l hygiene rocks. My wash i ng mach i ne sti ll works fine as long as I keep it plugged it. But a few years ago, I shivered for three days when an ice storm took out the power. Luckily I was stocked with fresh underwear. But what if the power fails again when my drawers drawer is empty? Salad Spinner to the rescue. Of course, all good things have a price. The Salad Spinner is $19.95. That's not a fortune, but I’m pretty cheap. And if I don’t get around to buying a Salad Spinner before the next power outage, there’s no need to panic. I can always wash my d r a we r s i n t h e r a i n a n d dr y them on the porch. Gra ndma would be proud. Send your email comments to: alexmmcrae@gmail.com

Powers’ abesence ends festival tradition By SARAH FAY CAMPBELL sarah@newnan.com When Labor Day weekend rolled around in 2014 and it was the first time in 43 years that there wasn’t a Powers’ Crossroads festival, there were hopes by many that some day the festival would return. Maybe not as a n a n nua l event, and probably not at its former glory, but return in some way. But now the festival grounds have been sold and Coweta Festivals, the group of local nonprofits that owned the property and operated the festival, is in the process of dissolving. The 78-acre property, situated on the Coweta/Heard county line, was bought by Craig and Nanette Harley, who live nearby. The Harleys both loved visiting the festival when it was active. “I was sad to see the festival shut down years ago – it was such a fun event,” said Mrs. Harley. “I attended the festival every year. I always bought something from the vendors. “I thought at one point – wouldn’t it be great if we could bring it back?” she said. But having put on horse shows in the past, she knows how much work bringing Powers’ back would be. “I don’t think there is any bringing it back without an inf lux of a lot of money and interest and time, and even then that is not going to guarantee bringing people in,” she said. The Harleys have no current plans for the property, said Mr. Harley. There have been rumors of plans for a residential subdivision, but he said there are no plans for that. “We bought it because we live nearby,” he said. “I like pasture land, and it’s a pretty field.” The property was put up for sale in February, said Stephanie Butcher of the Coweta County 4-H, one of the five Coweta Festivals organizations.

NTH FILE PHOTOS

many local clubs and churches operated food stands as well. A rts a nd crafts festiva ls weren’t common at the time, and people came from all over the Southeast to visit Powers’. But as the years went on, more and more festivals copied the Powers’ Crossroads model, and attendance waned. By the mid-2000s, there was occasional discussion of possible ways to revitalize the festival and bringing it back to its former glory. In late 2011, Coweta Festivals was informed that the property would need the county’s new special events permit to continue to operate, and a divided board discussed ending the festival’s run. Several board members resigned over the decision to not hold a festival in 2012. That spring, however, with the new permit in hand, it was announced that Turnham would continue the festival. Turnham implemented several ideas, including additional enterta in ment, but vendor participation and attendance dwindled. “Things just aren’t like they were back in the heyday of Powers’,” Butcher said. “It was becoming more and more difficult, and we just could not find anybody who could find a venture that would work out there.”

“The board had hoped that we would be able to find somebody that would be able to carry on the arts and crafts festival part of it, and it just never worked out.” — Stephanie Butcher

T he other groups of the Newnan-Coweta Art Association, Newnan-Coweta Chamber of Commerce, Pilot Club of Newnan, and the NewnanCoweta Jaycees. The local chapter of the International Association of Administrative Professionals, formerly the National Secretaries Association, was an original member of Coweta Festivals, but the local group disbanded several years ago. Coweta Festivals put on its last festival in 2012, and then leased the property to Mark Turnham, a recording studio owner and events producer. Turham put on the festival for two years and added several special events during the year. The property was rebranded

Powers’ Pavilion, but after two years, the lease ended and there was a mutual decision not to renew it. After that, the Fiddlin’ Flea Market was held for several months, with a larger event on Labor Day weekend. “ We h ad severa l t h i ng s that we had tried to do with the property as far as special events, and none of them really took hold and took off,” Butcher said. “The board decided it was just time,” she said. “It’s the end of an era,” said Butcher, who has served on the board since 2006. “It’s a little sad, but things change.” “The board had hoped that we would be able to find somebody that would be able to

carry on the arts and crafts festival part of it,” Butcher said, “and it just never worked out.” There was sadness and nostalgia as the decision was made to sell the property. “But it was time,” she said. W hen it was founded in 1971 by local artist Tom Powers on his family’s property, the Powers’ Crossroads Country Fair and Arts Festival was something new and it was extremely popular. Some of the finest artists and artisans in the South exhibited at Powers Crossroads, and many demonstrated their crafts. There was even a moonshine-making demonstration. The member organizations had booths, including the 4-H’s famous barbecue chicken, and

Head of the Class

Northgate quarterback optimistic heading into final season of high school football with Vikings BY DOUG GORMAN

dgorman@newnan.com

FILE PHOTO

Northgate senior quarterback Kyle McLaren throw a pass for the Vikings in the 2015 season.

“He is like a coach on the field. Since this is my first year as a head coach, it’s good to have somebody with Kyle’s experience.” —Northgate head coach Kesley Dalrymple

WWW.LITTLEGIANTFARMERSMARKET.COM

When Northgate senior quarterback Kyle McLaren talks about the Vikings’ upcom i n g se a son , h i s voice flows with the confidence of somebody who has obviously won some big games for his team over the past two seasons. With a 21-5 record as t he Nor t hgate sta r ter, McLaren has good reason to sound so optimistic. His best season with the Vikings came when he was just a sophomore and helped lead Northgate to the Class AAAAA semifinals and a 12-2 record. Last year was also a playoff-bound season for McLaren and the Vikings, who jumped up in classif ication and went 9-3 including two rounds into the playoffs. Just knowing his veteran quarterback will be back under center has taken some of the pressure off first-year head coach Kesley Dalrymple. Dalrymple, a longtime assistant at Northgate, was promoted to head coach ea rlier this yea r when Tommy Walburn retired. The Vikings’ new coach h a s watched McL a ren develop into a winning, confident quarterback. “He is like a coach on the field,” said Dalrymple. “Since this is my first year as a head coach, it’s good to have somebody with Kyle’s experience. He has been in some big games for us, and he knows how to win.” Da lr y mple doesn’t plan on making too many changes to the Vikings’

offensive playbook. The new head coach will stick with what McLaren and the Vikings offense do best, and that’s run the Wing-T. I t ’s a r u n - o r i e n t e d offense that not too many high school teams use any more, but when it clicks on all cylinders, it’s hard for opposing defenses to stop. During his f irst two years as a starter, McLaren benef ited from havi ng the one-two punch of Ton Evans and Kyle Cater toting the football out of the backfield. Evans, who is about to begin his college football career at Army, and Cater, who signed to play at Bluefield College, both produced back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons with McLaren as the starting quarterback. Last season, they also contributed more than 30 touchdowns. McLaren knows it won’t be ea sy repl aci ng t he Vikings’ dynamic running back duo, but he isn’t spending too much time dwelling on it. He knows there will be talented running backs in the Vikings’ lineup to pick up the pieces, including Trandon Torres-Niles, Tanner Hughes and Nick Carter. Torres-Niles is shifting over from the defensive side of the football, but he has some game experience after filling in for Evans at running back last year in a game against Starr’s Mill. “Ton a nd Kyle did a great job for us, but we are bringing back some really good football players and

I think they can be every bit as good. They have been working really hard in practice,” McLaren said. But make no mistake about it: With McLaren at quarterback, the Vikings wi ll a lso t h row t he football. A year, ago, McLaren threw for more than 1,000 yards. There is one glaring hole on McLaren’s football resume, and it’s something he hopes to fill in his final season as the Vikings’ starter – winning a region title. “We have come so close before,” McLaren said. “I think we have the talent to get it done this year.” McL a ren k now s t he Vikings can’t afford to sl ip up once t hey get into Region 5-AAAAAA competition. A year ago, Northgate, A le x a n d e r, M ay s a n d Langston Hughes all won first-round playoff games, and the competition is again expected to be wide open. “There is great competition in this region,” McLaren said. “There are no cupcakes. Every single team can beat you if you don’t play well. So every single time you have to bring your A-game.” McLaren is the perfect fit to guide the Vikings t h r o u g h t h e W i n g -T offense. “It takes a lot of patience to run this offense because there are so many moving parts,” McLaren said. “Once you get those moving pa rts work ing a nd clicking together, it’s basically unstoppable.”
