AMC buys Senoia studio

By SARAH FAY CAMPBELL AMC, the cable channel that produces “The Walking Dead,” has purchased the Senoia studio where the show is filmed. Riverwood Studios, which has been operating as Raleigh Studios Atlanta for the past several years, was officially sold to AMC on July 19, said Scott Tigchelaar, who was president of the studio until the sale. Riverwood was built in 1989 by Tigchelaar’s uncle, Paul Lombardi, and Lombardi’s father, Joe. Lombardi moved back to Califor-

been, he said. The show, now filming its eighth season, has been based in Senoia since Season Two, and takes up the entire studio. Tigchelaar and his brother-inlaw, Brian Jagt, still own Senoia Enterprises, which owns several properties in downtown Senoia, including the Gin Property, which is currently the “Alexandria” site. They are also part owners of Nic and Normans, a restaurant also owned by Greg Nicotero and Norman Reedus of “The Walking Dead,” and The Woodbury Shoppe. The real estate and property


Jordan Wray records an original song in the studio. The Newnan native received the most votes for The JOY FM’s contest, Local Artist Spotlight.

. . . AMC was at a point in their show and their interest in Georgia where it made sense to buy it.” — Scott Tigchelaar

nia several years ago where he operates his special-effect business, Full Scale Effects. Lombardi was the majority owner of the studio. “Paul was at the point in his career where it made sense to sell the studio, and AMC was at a point in their show and their interest in Georgia where it made sense to buy it,” Tigchelaar said. According to The Atlanta Business Chronicle, the sale was for $8.25 million. “Nothing is going to change, practically speaking,” Tigchelaar said. “It’s just an ownership change.” AMC is as committed to “The Walking Dead” and to Georgia as they always have

management side “is a full-time job and then some,” Tigchelaar said. “This makes life a bit simpler from my perspective. And it makes things simpler for Paul.” Lombardi isn’t quite ready to retire, but “he is simplifying his life,” Tigchelaar said. Tigchelaar said he thinks the purchase is a good indication of AMC’s commitment to Georgia. AMC does a lot of work in the state, and would have the opportunity to work on other productions while “The Walking Dead” is on hiatus. When it comes to the studio’s future, “They are in a better position to take it forward for its next chapter,” Tigchelaar said.



e w n a n’s ow n Jord a n Wr ay h a s received the most votes for Local Artist Spotlight, a contest hosted by The JOY FM. The contemporary Christian radio station, with a location in Fairburn, congratulated Wray on his success and connected him with a Christian record company, Black Cat Studios in Griffin. Wray says this is the next step in what he hopes to be a promising music career. Wray will record his single “I Will Tell You” at Black Cat within the next few weeks. The

singer/songwriter said the song is based on his personal struggle with drugs and addiction while finding faith in Christ. "I have a story,” said Wray. “I've been through pain and struggle, so that's part of the reason why I wrote the song." Between the studio and singing at both Royal Baptist Church and SonRise Baptist Church, Wray is looking to sing at other local churches. "I'm open to performing at different churches and leading worship, especially for

USDA training facility puts canines into action By CLAY NEELY


In an environment designed to simulate a border crossing, Reilly detects a suspicious odor underneath one car. Following her training at the USDA National Detector Dog Training Center, Reilly will head back to El Paso, Texas where she will work at the US / Mexico border.

Nestled inside International Park off Highway 34, a variety of beagle and Labrador retriever canines from across the country travel to Newnan to train at the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) National Detector Dog Training Center. The dogs utilized by the USDA aren’t typically looking for bombs and drugs, but are on the hunt for harmful plant pests and keeping foreign animal disease from entering the country. The training center provides a state-of-theart learning environment for training detec-

tor dogs and their handlers to help safeguard American agriculture by preventing pests and agricultural diseases from entering the United States through airports, international borders, postal facilities and cargo areas. The facility incorporates environmentally conscious features in accordance with the Leadership in Energy Environmental Design certification by the U.S. Green Building Council. The Newnan facility sits on almost 18 acres — a far cry from their previous home in Orlando that sat on just 2.5 acres. The Orlando facility had a single training

NTC kicks off 40th season with ‘Mockingbird’


ewnan Theatre Compa ny, i n conju nct ion with Cra in Oil Company, will open NTC’s historic 40th season with “To Kill A Mockingbird.” The script is adapted from Harper Lee’s Pulitzer Prizewinning book by playwright Ch r istopher Sergel, who worked with Lee to bring this version to the stage. Jean Louise “Scout” Finch (played by Sonya Thomas) is being raised in a quiet Southern town by her widower father and lawyer, Atticus (NTC veteran actor-director Lamar Payne), with her brother, Jeremy “Jem” Finch (Fletcher Martin). Set in 1935, the play illustrates the social issues and language of the time period. Blacks in the community have a special feeling about Scout's father, but in her youthful innocence, she does not know why. A few of her white friends are inexplicably hostile, and Scout doesn't understand that, either. Atticus explains that he is defending a young Negro man wrongfully accused of a grave crime, "because if I didn't, I couldn't hold my head up.” Atticus fights his legal battle in a touching dramatization is an unforgettably meaningful work of art.

He said he is not looking to become a local celebrity, but rather a source of “support and encouragement within the community.” A not her si ngle by Wray, “ Show Me t he Way,” i s t he k i nd of uplifting song that he hopes will engage young audiences a nd be t he encouragement for which many are looking. Wray describes the song as being “more of a praise and worship song.” While Wray’s music is only available on his online music page, the singer hopes that recording with Black Cat will ma ke his music more accessible to listeners. Wray expressed that he is also interested in making music videos in the future and wants to film in Newnan. The prospective music videos would showcase the area’s history and diversity. “I’m proud of my roots, proud to be in Newnan,” said Wray. Wr ay c ont i nue s to at tend Roya l B apt i st Church, dividing his time between the choir and performing at SonRise Baptist Church. He said both churches have been extremely supportive of him and his music. “Royal has been there for me through my lowest point,” said Wray. “I just want to thank my family, friends, Royal, SonRise, the Newnan community and Penfield Christian Homes. I've had so many people support me and encourage me.” P e n f i e ld C h r i s t i a n Homes is a faith-based center for people dealing with substance abuse add ict ion s i n Greene County.

show. “The book has been a part of my life since I was in the sixth grade,” Daniel said. “I read it at least twice a year, just to remind myself how beautifully Harper Lee constructed a story. It also keeps my feet rooted deep in Southern soil. The story takes a very painful truth about our past and brings it to the forefront, and sadly, the painful truth is not as much in our past as some of us would like it to be.” Lamar Payne plays Atticus Finch, a role he said he has always wanted to play. “I have been a fan of the book and the movie for years,” Payne said. “Who can’t watch the movie and see Gregory Peck as a role model?” SUBMITTED PHOTO Thomas has performed with Newnan Theatre Company opens its 40th season Thursday, Aug. 17, with “To Kill A Mockingbird.

Leola W. Maddox was a graduate of Class of “1963” Meriwether County High School (Class data unavailable)

Make Newnan Great Again By Alton H. Maddox, Jr.

On April 3, 2017, the homegoing service for my wife, Leola W. Maddox, was held at the historic Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, GA. Dr. Calvin O. Butts and Dr. C. Vernon Mason, both of the historic Abyssinian Baptist Church in Harlem, officiated at the homegoing service. There was a driving rainstorm on April 3 in Coweta County, which engulfed Sunset Cemetery in Newnan. It punctuated the burial ceremony. The Creator and the revered ancestors had spoken. The ceremony will be completed on August 17, 2017, the birthday of Hon. Marcus Mosiah Garvey. Mr. Garvey was a “mover and shaker.” There are parallels between President Donald J. Trump and Mr. Garvey. In addition to both of them being “movers and shakers,” they were both “hounded” for their associations: Mr. Garvey for meeting with the Ku Klux Klan, and President Trump for associating with President Vladimir Putin of Russia. Mr. Garvey was deported back to Jamaica in 1927 as an “undesirable alien” after President

Calvin Coolidge, a Republican president, had commuted his prison sentence, also in 1927. Mr. Garvey had been imprisoned in the Atlanta Penitentiary: “Georgia On My Mind.” My maternal grandparents were Thomas and Eugenia Sims. My grandfather was known as a “prophet.” My father, Rev. Alton H. Maddox, Sr.’s parents were Henry and Sally Maddox. Henry Maddox was a “griot.” Both families were members of Providence Baptist Church. My mother, N.S. Maddox, taught school at Providence Baptist Church. I prophesized, in the New York Amsterdam News, after Sen. Barack Obama threw his hat in the ring for president, that he would be the 44th president of the United States. On October 3, 2015, at the Galbraith AME Zion Church in the nation’s capital, I prophesized that Donald J. Trump would be the 45th president of the United States. October 3, 2015 was the 50 th anniversary of the Immigration Act of 1965.

President Barack Obama was a “good hitter.” President Donald Trump has a mandate to be the “clean-up hitter” on the “White House All-Stars” and also pardon Mr. Garvey. Mr. Trump should not view Mr. Obama as the enemy. If he agrees with this assessment, his face will appear on Mt. Rushmore. Otherwise, his “mug shot” will appear in the “Hall of Shame” as the worst president in the history of the United States. President Trump’s slogan is “Make America Great Again.” This is an enthymeme. There is a missing syllogism: “Blacks Made America Great.” It can be found in Scott v. Sandford, 19 How. (60 U.S.) 393 (1857) as well as by the exclusion of Blacks from holding federal patents, in 1858. President Donald J. Trump has been cordially invited to Sunset Cemetery in Newnan, GA on August 17, 2017 to consummate the burial ceremony of Leola W. Maddox at Sunset Cemetery in Newnan, GA, and to pardon Hon. Marcus Mosiah Garvey on his 130 th birthday.

Attention inconvenienced, annoyed drivers

Please slow dow n. Please pay attention. Put your phone down. Look out for school buses. Look out for school bus stops. I’m begg i ng you a s father. I have a son driving himself to school this year. He doesn’t know how you were born with all the instincts and skills to be a NASCAR driver. Some days he may be driving his little sister to school as well. He isn’t d r iv i ng t he speed limit to ruin your day. He’s a new driver. He doesn’t need you on his rear bumper. Neither do any of his friends. I’m begging you as a

husband. My wife travels these roads. She wakes up early and leaves for work early. She gives herself plenty of time to make it to where she is going. Set your alarm 20 minutes earlier so you don’t have to rush, either. I’m begging you as a son. My parents are in their 70s. They are out on the roads with you. They are probably talking to each ot her about g ra nd k ids and wondering how the backup camera knows to turn off when they put the car in drive. To them, a yellow light means start slowing down. They don’t use the yellow


light to see how fast their car can get from 45 mph to 70 mph. Call them oldfashioned, but they still stop at stop signs and red lights. I’m begging you as a deputy. I see, first hand, the consequences of speeding, or distracted driving. It is ugly. It is painful. I try to render aid to the injured. I try to console those not physica l ly i nju red but mentally hurting. I see the looks on the

faces of the witnesses. I know they feel sick to their stomach and want to cry. I know that because I feel the same way. It is not pretty. Lastly, I’m begging you as a brother, an uncle, and a friend. My family is on these roads. My friends are on these roads. Almost

everyone I care about is on these roads. If you’re reading this, I suspect almost everyone you care about is as well. Don’t let being the cause of an accident be the reason you realize that wherever you were going was still going to be there if you arrived five minutes later. The next time you whip around a car in a reckless manner please take a moment and think. No one wakes up in the morning with the sole intention of inconveniencing you on your way to wherever you are going. If you do happen to pass

dogs are then evaluated by a veterinarian where they are tested for heartwor ms a nd u ndergo blood work. X-rays of the hips and spine are rated. All dogs are vaccinated and spayed or neutered. The beagles and beagle mixes are trained to work in airports, while Labs and Lab mixes go to work on borders, in cargo warehouses and in postal faci lities. Occasionally, Jack Russell terriers are recruited to work in Guam finding brown tree snakes. “They never actually see the snakes,” Mason sa id. “ We t ra i n t hem exclusively on smell.” In 2000, USDA started using larger dogs outside the passenger environment by employing Labs. This launched the “Border Brigade” on the Mexican and Canadian borders, and “Cargo Brigade” in the Customs and Border Protection’s cargo inspection facilities at

airports and seaports. Depending on the working environment, the dogs are trained to give a response by pawing to indicate the presence of an agricultural product. Regardless of the behavioral response, treats and positive praise from their handler is the reward that increases their proficiency, Mason said. The beagles are initially trained to seek out five core odors — apple, citrus, mango, beef and pork. Non-target food items such as chocolate and cheese are placed in luggage to help trainers keep beagles from responding to their favorite treats. I n side t he t ra i n i ng facility, a massive amount of luggage is utilized to help simulate the environment of an airport, including a conveyor belt. The majority of donated luggage comes from Goodwill or The Salva-

tion Army along with a large amount of clothing. Severa l of t he dogs c u r rent ly i n t ra i n i ng are heading back to the United States/Mexico border where they’ll be put into action. However, many of the center’s graduates have gone down to Florida to help eradicate the growing population of the giant African land snail, which is considered to be one of the most destructive snails in the world. It’s known to consume at least 500 different types of plants and can pose serious health risks to humans, according to USDA. In 2015, Florida was awarded more than $7 million in a federal grant to help erad icate t he threat, including the use of detector dogs that are specialized to find the snails. USDA dogs have also be en t ra i ned to f i nd Asian longhorn beetles,

I bet you money, more times than not, you will see that same car somewhere not far behind you. You aren’t saving time. You’re risking lives. Ever yone just wa nts to go home at the end of the day. And everyone at their home wants them to return. Let’s all go home. Toby N i x i s a local w r i t e r, g u i t a r i s t a n d deputy sheriff.

Mason said there will a lway s be new c h a llenges for the dogs that come through the facility, but believes they’re always ready to rise to the challenge. “Dogs like these, they just love to work,” he said. “It makes them happy.” And while the center is always on the lookout for new candidates, they occasionally offer beagles, beagle mixes and some large breed dogs for adoption. These are dogs that have not met their training requirements but would make wonderful pets. Mason urges anyone interested in donating or adopting to contact them at 770-254-2523.

Prior to his role as a training specia list for the USDA, Mason worked as a trainer for bomb dogs at the Atlanta Police Department and also with the MARTA K-9 unit. Mason sa id beagles a nd beagle mi xes a re the agency’s preferred breed of dog at the airpor t because of t heir keen sense of smell, nonthreatening size, high food drive and gentle disposition with the public. The ages of those in training range between 1 to 3 ye a r s old a nd are required to have a friendly personality. The USDA began its detector dog program, “Beagle Brigade,” at the

L os A ngeles I nter n ational Airport back in 1984 where a single beagle was trained to sniff out plants and animal products in luggage and carry-on items arriving on international flights. By 1990, there were three locations set up for training in New York City, Miami and Livermore, Calif. In 1997, the tra i n i ng was consolidated to a single facility in Orlando before moving to Newnan 12 years later. “The majority of our dogs actually come from rescue shelters or from families willing to donate them,” Mason said. “Once we get them, they have to sit in quarantine for medical and temperament. After 14 days, they come to ma i n ken nel where they begin their training.” Trainers like Mason judge a prospect’s reaction to public places and crowds of people. The

Lights for Linda takes a swing at cancer By MAGGIE BOWERS


Matt Swope, left, and John Herbert Cranford Jr., right, look over a presentation for the Young Professionals in Philanthropy, a new organization they are leading for the NewnanCoweta Chamber and the Coweta Community Foundation.

Young Professionals in Philanthropy Coweta County’s philanthropic and business communities are teaming up to help grow the next generation of givers in Coweta through a new group, the Young Professionals in Philanthropy. A partnership of t he Coweta Com munity Foundation and the Newnan-Coweta Chamber, the YPs in Philanthropy was launched in May. Two Coweta attorneys, John Herbert Cranford Jr. and Matt Swope, are leading the new group. Cranford is an assistant district attorney who sits on the board of the Coweta Community Foundation. Swope, a former lega l advisor to the chamber and a board member of both the Newnan/Coweta Boys and Girls Club and Communities In Schools, is an assistant solicitor at the Coweta County Solicitor General’s Office. Cranford and Swope said that when looking for new board members to serve in the community, they realized they were tapping the same group of friends. Through this new organization, they hope to tap a reservoir of young professionals — those under age 45—who are eager to serve in Coweta County but don’t know how to get plugged in. “The Community Foundation seems well placed to b e a go -b e t we en ,” Cranford said, and after discussions with Cynthia Bennett, the chamber’s director of programs, the chamber was brought in as well. “Matt and I kind of took leadership of it,” Cranford said, and they sent an email to all members of t he cha mber ’s Young Professionals. T hat May meeting resulted in some 34 people wanting to participate. The goal of the YPs in Philanthropy is simple, “to engage and educate young professionals in volunteer community service and philanthropy.” Cranford and Swope said they plan to accomplish this with short, productive quarterly meetings. In fact, the two said they are committed to having only 30-minute meetings. “We want to be a resource without being a burden,” Swope said. T he Y Ps i n Ph i l a nthropy will learn about an array of local nonprofit agencies, and they will have the opportunity to gain practical experience, perhaps by attending a board meeting or committee meeting or even helping set up at an event. Various opportunities will be offered, and once the participant checks off a certain number of these items, he or she will be

connected to a nonprofit agency for further service. Cranford and Swope said they believe the group will be able to tap into the energy and fresh ideas of Coweta’s young professionals. At the same time, they recognize that most of those participating will be busy with careers and young families, so they know some flexibility will be required. While those participating in the group will need to attend two quarterly meetings, those meetings don’t have to be consecutive, or even in the same calendar year. Cranford and Swope said they also want young professionals to be aware that community service includes, as Swope puts it, “time, talent and treasure,” and they don’t want anyone believing the myth t hat on ly t he wea lt hy or those gifted in public speaking get to serve on boards. Swope, who has assisted with the Boys and Girls Club’s Oscar Night, said that group asks its volunteers to come in on Sunday after the event to help take out garbage, and organizations often have a need for volunteers to help with such simple tasks.

B o t h C r a n fo r d a n d Swope h ave long t i me connections to Coweta County and are invested i n t h i s c o m m u n i t y. Swope, who grew up here, said, “It’s a community I love,” and he wants to see it grow. Cr a n ford , b or n a nd raised in Coweta, said, “I made a choice to come back here and work. I’m lucky enough to work for Mr. (Pete) Skandalakis here.” And while the two men have long ties to the community, they want their fellow young professionals to know that this new YP group is open to all comers and plans to be inclusive, not exclusive. Swope said this is not an “old Newnan” or “old boys’ club” group and welcomes any young professional who would like to serve in the community. So far, they’ve had interest from builders, small busi ness ow ners , st udents, lawyers, and state a nd loca l gover n ment employees.

Lights for Linda Luminarias, L4LL, a Newnanbased nonprof it organ i z at ion t h at r a i s e s money for t he t reatment and cure of leukemia and other cancers, has recently added a new fundraising opportunity. The “Links for Linda — Playing Through to a Cure” golf tournament will benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, and according to L 4LL fou nder Na ncy Sanker, will allow part icipa nts t he ch a nce to have fun for a great cause.
