Local arts center offers free swing dance lessons
Chuck and Jenny Enderlin show dancers how to properly dip their partners during an East Coast Swing Dance lesson at the Backstreet Community Arts Center.
The Backstreet Community Arts Center off First Avenue is hopping every Wednesday night. The big band sounds of the 1920s, ‘30s and ‘40s fill the room as people learn the energetic dance stylings of East Coast Swing dance. The sessions are free, though donations are welcome. The class is taught by Jenny and Chuck Enderlin for people 18 years of age and up. “One gentleman who comes is in his 90s,” said Jenny. “No partner is necessary. Everyone is encouraged to dance with everyone.” Folks also do not need to have any dance experience, Jenny said.

The class is held every Wednesday night and starts at 6:30 p.m. with a basic lesson. It’s then followed by an hour of social dance. Swing dancing keeps people moving at all time, and is good for your health. “Dancing is the only type of exercise in which you actually forget you're getting a workout,” Jenny explained. “You just turn on some
big band music and have fun! “Because dancing combines social connectivity, learning new skills, creativity, and physical activity. It invigorates mind, body, and spirit,” she added. “Ask anyone who has ever gone dancing a few weeks in a row and they will tell you they can feel

Coweta County’s unemployment rate h a s d ropped , and more people are working in Coweta as the manufacturing sector has added about 935 jobs since last year. Coweta’s employment increased since the first quarter of 2016 and added about 1,567 jobs, according to an economic overPHOTO BY KANDICE BELL view presented Tues- D r.

Smith presented data and statistics at the 2017 Economic Forecast Breakfast on Tuesday morning in Carrollton at the University of West Georgia. The annual breakfast gives a West Georgia regional update, which includes Coweta, Carroll, Douglas, Haralson, Paulding and Polk counties. The most recent unemployment rate for Coweta from August was 4.3 percent, which is below the rate of 5.3 percent last year. Coweta’s unemployment rate is lower than the state average unemployment rate of about 5 percent. Construction jobs grew by nearly 16 percent, and retail grew by 2 percent. The booming health care industry slowed down in job growth, only growing 1.1 percent. Almost 500 jobs were added in the accommodation/food services category.
Seeking a better destination Most behavioral patients end up at the ER – sometimes for days
By SARAH FAY CAMPBELL firstname.lastname@example.org Part two of a series on the newly formed Coweta Behavioral Health Task Force W hen someone in Coweta is having a behavioral health crisis, the options are fairly limited. Most patients end up in the emergency room at Piedmont Newnan Hospital. Some are taken there by ambulance, while others are taken by family or friends, or end up there on their own. But the emergency room isn’t the only place to go. Pathways Center has a 24-hour walk-in center for people in a behavioral health crisis, where they can be evaluated and connected to services. A patient in crisis can stay at the center, located a t 5 9 Ho s pi t a l R o a d , Newnan, up to 23 hours. The center is located in the basement of the Path-
ways Behavioral Clinic. The entrance is in the rear of the building. Patients are evaluated and monitored, and can relax, watch television or read, and eat. A nurse is on staff 24 hours a day, seven days a week, according to Jade Benefield, CEO of Pathways Community Service Board. If the patient does need inpatient services, Pathways can arrange transportation to Second Season, the organization’s crisis stabilization unit in LaGrange. There is a similar center for youth, Hope’s Corner, in Greenville. The units also prov ide s ubst a nce a bu s e detox. Or, if after several hours the person is no longer in a crisis, an appointment can be set up for counseling at the Pathways Clinic. Public safety can also transport patients to the walk-in center instead of

the hospital, but it rarely happens. Sometimes, a patient needs to be medically cleared at the hospital before going for behavioral health treatment. “It is a receiving facility. We have the ability to evaluate on-site and determine if they need additional medical clearance,”
Benefield said of the walkin center. In theory, local public safety could also transpor t pat ients d i rect ly to S e c o n d S e a s o n i n LaGrange, Benefield said, but the facility is usually fairly full. Though the emergency room is the default choice, it’s not ideal by any means. “ P i e d m o n t Ne w n a n cares for those patients, but we’re not licensed to care for behavioral health or psychiatric patients,” said Melanie Kirby, director of case management for the hospital. “So we do the best we can until they get to the place they should be.” Dr. Don Baker, director of Piedmont Newnan’s emergency department and medical director for Coweta County Fire Rescue, said he wants behavioral health patients to get the best care as quickly as possible. I n stead, “ T he k nee-

Ba ker and K irby are b ot h pa r t ic ipat i n g i n meetings of the newly formed Coweta Behavioral Health Task Force. The task force, a loose group of local medical, behav iora l hea lt h a nd public safety personnel, is working together to find a better way to respond to behavioral health emergencies in the community. Ba ker said there are t y pica l ly t wo to si x behavioral health patients treated in the emergency
room every day. Sometimes those patients have to wait days to get a placement at a behavioral health facility. And they spend those days in the emergency room – taking up beds that can’t be used by other emergency patients, who then end up waiting longer to get a bed, according to Baker. Often, patients get a psych iat ric placement in two to three days, but not always. Recently, one patient was at the ER for two weeks, though that was a unique case and is

not typical. When a patient comes into the ER and is determined to be at risk for self-harm or a danger to others, a “10-13” order might be issued. This authorizes transportation of a person who appears to be mentally ill and requires involuntary treatment in an emergency receiving facility. A 10-13 expires seven days after it is issued. Because of a shortage of availability in emergency receiving facilities, it's possible for patients to stay in the ER until t he emergenc y order expires without receiving the appropriate level of behavioral health care t hey need to prevent another crisis, according to Chatelé Chester, quality assurance director for

Shopping – and thinking about shopping Clair Lynn wanted a Simply Southern shirt. Neither Lynn nor I shop much for clothes. A nd while we love downtown New na n, we a re more likely to eat there than to shop, though Morgan Jewelers has long been a place for special purchases. But then Clair Lynn, our oldest grandchild, asked Lynn if she had seen the Simply Southern shirts? Yes, she had. And then Clair Lynn asked if she knew where you could buy t hem? Cla i r Ly n n had the answer herself, at Kendra’s. So on a Saturday morning, we found ourselves ro a m i n g dow ntow n – shuttling back and forth between the two Kendra’s locations to find the shirts Clair Lynn liked in her size. At the store on Jefferson Street, little sister Quinn charmed the
sales clerks and also found a stuffed animal that she convinced Pop she needed to take home. It was a fun outing for three generations, but it also quickened my journalist persona. I was struck by all those people shopping downtown. At the court square Kendra’s, I got into a line behind several other people. They were chatting, obviously having fun, and buying clothes. From their conversation, I could tell the mother and daughters ahead of me made regular visits to Kendra’s. We didn’t stop at Gillyweed, but going back and forth, there were people going in – and coming out with shopping bags. It made me think about my early years at The Newnan Times-Herald. I remember buying presents for my fiancee – now
WINSTON SKINNER my wife of 38 years – at the Jefferson House and Coggins boutique. Later, I recall running to Kessler’s to pick out a last minute wedding gift. For years, Scott’s Bookstore was a regular haunt for all our family. And I can never forget the day that I sent my younger daughter, Jane, then an elementary student, with my credit card to pick out a birthday present for a
friend from the Alamo. I called Elizabeth Crain to let her know it was okay with me for Jane to have my card, and she told me she thought every 8-yearold girl should have a credit card. I also thought about M r. E .W. T hom a s son , who – with his son James – founded The Newnan Times. They were both still at The Times-Herald when I got here, and Mr. E.W. used to say that every dollar spent downtown went around the court square 12 times. I can’t testify to the truth of that, but I did think about how money spent in Coweta County pays people’s salaries. It pays electric bills and makes car payments, sends children to the orthodontist and to dental school. Like most folks, I do some of my shoppi n g
online these days. I expect, however, that I’m going to enjoy shopping local more in days to come. Especially since Clair Lynn really likes her Simply Southern shirts – yes,
she got more than one – and she may need to look for some more. Winston Skinner is the news editor of The Newnan Times-Herald.

Newnan-Coweta Chamber encourages a ‘Yes’ vote to SPLOST With early voting getting under way earlier this month, members of the Newnan-Coweta Chamber are busy letting all of our friends and neighbors know the many reasons our Chamber encourages voting “Yes” to the Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST) that is on the Nov. 7 ballot. For years now, our community has enjoyed the fruit of a successful marketing campaign branding Coweta County as Prosperity’s Front Door. In addition to our amazing business community, we take great pride in our excellent school system and our state-of-theart health care facilities. We have beautiful homes old and new, recreational facilities that are second to none, and so many great retail
choices that people from far and wide consider Coweta County a favorite shopping destination. Naturally, we love the fact that out-of-county shoppers help cont r ibute to ou r loca l economy through the current one-penny sales tax. For that and many other reasons, continuing this one-penny sales tax just makes sense. This is not an additional tax but simply a continuation of the current tax. The SPLOST funds will pay for projects such as road maintenance, roads that are so important to all of us on a daily basis. We know from experience that it is less expensive to maintain our roads than it is to repair them. SPLOST funds will be used to fund new parks and recreation projects that increase
property values. Last but certainly not least, we also support SPLOST because it will fund upgrades to the public safety radio system. This new system will help maintain our safe community, which remains a priority for everyone. At the Chamber, we have long believed that Coweta’s quality of life is our gift to the future. It’s a gift we don’t take for granted, and we ask voters to help us see Coweta’s great quality of life continue by voting “Yes” to SPLOST. Candace Boothby, President Newnan-Coweta Chamber of Commerce

Preparing for a new era in Georgia Eight years ago the state of Georgia was reeling from a total collapse in the U.S. housing and financial markets. Banks were failing here at the highest rate in the nation. Even the soundest real estate transactions were viewed as speculative investments. Our unemployment rate soared well above the national average. Ta x revenues plummeted. Campaigns were in full force for the 2009 Atlanta Mayor’s race, as well as for Georgia’s 2010 statew ide elections. T here were few g ra i ns of opti m ism to cling to. One could have legitimately questioned why anyone would have wanted to get elected in that environment. Whomever was elected would have to deliver less in terms of government services, while asking voters for more. E ig ht yea rs l ater i n Atlanta voters will select a replacement for mayor Kasim Reed in a couple of weeks. Given the size of the field of candidates, a runoff is all but a certainty. Meanwhile, a couple of blocks up the street, Gov. Nathan Deal is f inalizing the agenda for his last legislative session as governor. His replacement will be selected next November. One era is ending. Voters must select what the next era will look like, and what tone it will bring. It’s worth noting that K asi m Reed was pol ling third until just before the election that put him into a runoff, and then the mayor’s office. Deal was polling fourth a few weeks out of his primary. Polls provide fodder for media and speculative entertainment. They are horrible predictors of
actual voter results, especially in crowded fields and times of voter angst and uncertainty. The front runner for governor was then Insurance Commissioner John Oxendine. One of his proposals was to pave a freeway parallel to the downtown connector through East Atlanta. Those with a memory of the Presidential Parkway debacle knew the chances of success for such a proposal approached zero. It seemed, instead, designed to rile up intown Atlanta residents for t he pu rposes of pitting Atlantans against suburbanites. The raw politics of political bases makes it easy to pit one group against another for electoral gain. Stoking divisions between suburban Republicans and inner city Democrats and vice versa is an easy electoral layup for candidates and their consultants. We now pre pa re to enter the stage where the mayor’s race will gain salience statewide as it narrows to two candidates and the primaries for governor begin to become part of the daily news cycle. It’s important to take a moment to remember how the last two elections turned out for the state and city. Gov. Deal and Mayor Reed didn’t pit the capital city against the state. Quite the contrary, the two were often held up as a national model for bipartisan pragmatism. Mayor Reed summed up the relationship and their motivation together last month for New York Magazine: “…we sat in a room one day and figured out we agreed on job creation, infrastructure, transportation, the deepening of the Port of Savannah. And
CHARLIE HARPER we were both elected in an economic ditch, like most of my colleagues. So we had a reason to try to be successful together, because if we hadn’t been, we’d have been tossed out.” T hey weren’t tossed out. Both are preparing to leave a city and state in better fiscal shape than they found it. We’re no longer trying to figure out when the hemorrhaging will stop. Quite the contrary. Cranes again dot the skyline of Midtown a nd Buck head . Dow ntown Atlanta is experiencing a reemergence. One of the most exclusive areas
of DeKalb County is asking to be annexed into Atlanta. The state, as well, is prosperous again. The construction cranes extend well beyond the city center. A state that had two or three days operating cash on hand when Deal took over now has about 2.5 billion dollars saved for the next rainy day. Georgia is open for business, and is growing again. We’re no longer in an economic ditch. Political relationships between partisans, however, are separated by a deep and growing chasm. The next Atlanta mayor and governor will not have the built in necessity to work together. Quite the contrary. Success provides the opportunity to argue over the spoils. As voters in the city and the state decide over the next year who will lead them into the next era, there will be those who seek to score off the easy political layups of division. This will be all too
easy during this time of great discord. Georg ia n s need t wo more leaders who can help us focus on what unites us, rather than stoking the embers of what divides us.

dancing at an American Legion Hall in Pensacola, Fla. The couple eventually married and moved around a lot with the military before finally settling in Newnan, said Jenny. “I fel l i n love w it h the city at first sight. I remember telling Chuck the only thing the city lacked was the addition of bike paths and some local
swing dancing,” Jenny stated. “Well, bike paths are now in the works, so I figured it was on us to bring the dancing.” Jen ny proposed t he idea to Kim Ramey, the founder of Backstreet Community Arts, who agreed to bring it to the center and open it to the public.

Amazon’s HQ2 could positively impact Coweta BY KANDICE BELL
Amazon is looking for a city to house its second headquarters, and Coweta may reap some of t he benefits. Amazon is promising a $5 billion investment and 50,000 jobs over the next 10 and half years. Potential sites in metro Atlanta include Midtown, Fort McPherson, the former Genera l Motors Pla nt, now renamed Assembly, in Doraville, High Street in Dunwoody, The Gulch near Five Points and Philips Arena, as well as areas near Hartsfield-Jackson I nter n at ion a l a i r por t , according to The Associated Press. Amazon has made it known that tax breaks and grants would
be a big deciding factor on where it chooses to locate. The online retailer is currently headquartered in Seattle, Wash. Local business experts said the move to the airport could be beneficial for Coweta a nd metro Atlanta as a whole. “The second Amazon headquarters will have a huge economic impact on whatever city wins the bid,” University of West Georgia Economics Professor Dr. Mary Kassis said. “A $5 billion construction project and 50,000 high-wage jobs would def initely boost t he At l a nt a e conomy. Although there could be some negative impacts on housing costs and traffic, the benefits of the addi-
tional jobs and economic activity will outweigh those costs.” “The impact on individual counties such as Coweta will depend on where the second headquarters is located,” she said. “The counties closest to the headquarters will get the most impact. However, this project is big enough that it will have a positive benefit on the entire metropolitan area.” John Hall, 2017 NewnanCoweta Cha mber of Commerce Board chairman, agrees with Kassis. Hall said he believes as long the headquarters is located in metro Atlanta, all surrounding cities will benefit. “ It w i l l br i ng m a ny jobs from what I’ve read,”

Nancy Mader, left, accepts the 2017 Coweta Community Foundation Woman of the Year award from 2016 honoree Norma Haynes at the Power of the Purse fundraising luncheon Thursday.
BY SARAH FAY CAMPBELL firstname.lastname@example.org
Na ncy Mader is t he Coweta Com mun ity Foundation’s 2017 Woman of the Year. Mader was honored for her work with the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network and Southeastern Assistance in Healthcare. The honor was announced Thursday at the community foundation’s annual Power of the Purse fundraising luncheon, held at the Newnan Centre. Mader was introduced by 2016 Lady of the Year Norma Haynes. “She has been involved in supporting and volunteering with several local orga n i zations ,” Hayes sa id, before na m i ng Mader as the honoree. Mader was t he f i rst chairwoman of Southeastern Assistance in Healthcare when it was founded in 2012. The organization offers financial assistance to those undergoing cancer treatment. But it’s the fight against pancreatic cancer that is Mader’s passion. Pancreatic cancer, which has a five-year survival rate of just 7 percent, claimed the lives of Mader’s father, aunt and grandmother. Mader joined and Pancreatic Ca ncer Action Network in 2011 and in 2012 became chair of the “Purple Stride” fundraising walk. She was also n a med At la nt a Advo cacy Chair for the Pancreatic Ca ncer Action Network. Because of her success with fundraising and advocacy, Mader was asked to join the national volunteer advisory council, Haynes said.
“Wow. Just wow,” said Mader as she took the stage “I’ve never been so honored.” Mader sa id she wa s humbled looking around the room, because there are so many more deserving women. Mader addressed keynote spea ker Minda Dentler, who participates in Ironman Triathlons.
The Aerotropolis Atlanta Alliance exists to help promote area assets, a nd t hus i mprove t he commonly held image and perception of the southmetropolitan area, accordi ng to Shel ley L a m a r, executive director of the alliance. “ H a r t sf ield Ja c k s on International Airport has been a key factor in the economic growth of the metro Atlanta region, as well as the state of Georgia, and the Aerotropolis Alliance has been working to focus the prosperity halo the airport creates on the area closest to the airport,” Lamar said in an email statement. "Should Amazon choose to locate its ‘HQ2’ in the Aerotropolis footprint,
it would not only create new white collar jobs in the region, but further increase the booming hotel and hospitality industries, as well as all of the supporting industries we have in place." "Our renaissance as a region is well underway, but if Amazon chooses to locate its headquarters in our region, I’m quite certain they would find warm welcomes from our current Fortune 500 residents, such as Porsche C a r s Nor t h A m e r ic a , Delta A ir Lines, Du ke Realty and Chick-fil-A.” As of Oct. 23, Amazon had received over 230 bids and proposals from cities and regions in the United States, Canada and Mexico, according to the AP.
COTY nominations open
Mader is CCF Woman of the Year
Hall said. “Jobs are an asset for any community. As long the headquarters isn’t located north above Atlanta, I think Coweta will benefit.” Coweta is a soug hta f ter com mu n it y for businesses and developers, in part because of its close proximity to the the Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, and the A m a zon headqua r ters near “aerotropolis,” could promote the concept even further for the region. An aerotropolis is a metropolitan subregion whose infrastructure, land-use, and economy are centered on the airport, according to a dissertation by John D. Kasarda with The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

“ My I r o n m a n i s to change the story of pancreatic ca ncer, a nd to help all the cancer fighters,” Mader said. “Cancer is a terrible thing. Pancreatic cancer is a tough, tough journey. But thank you. You don’t know how proud I am of this,” she said. “This is for you, daddy.”

Staley Park in Sharpsburg officially opens BY EMILY KIMBELL email@example.com

Sta ley Pa rk i n Sharpsburg to celebrate t he pa rk ’s open i ng on Saturday. The celebration marked more than two years since development plans for the park began in 2015.

Staley sketched out an idea of a space with a gazebo, landscape and playground – an image architects and landscapers would use to construct the park. “It didn’t look like we were ever going to get started… but we are so proud to have Wendell taking care of this project,” Rhodes said.

Planning, attitude, perseverance Paralyzed triathlete shares keys to success
BY SARAH FAY CAMPBELL firstname.lastname@example.org
Planning, a positive attitude and — most importantly — perseverance, were the keys to success shared by wheelchair athlete Minda Dentler at the recent Power of the Purse f u nd ra i si n g event for the Coweta Community Foundation. Dentler was born i n India, and developed polio before her first birthday. The disease left her paralyzed from the hips down, a nd her bi r t h mot her, unable to care for her, took her to an orphanage. A family from Spokane, Wash., adopted her and Minda moved to the U.S. when she was 3. Through multiple surgeries and therapy, she was able to wa lk with the help of leg braces and crutches. I n col le ge , s he wa s introduced to ha ndcycling. A handcycle is similar to a recumbent bicycle, and is pedaled with the hands. Nine years ago, Dentler discovered triathlon, a sport combining swimming, bicycling and running. She uses a racing wheelchair for the running portion, and swims without the use of her legs. In triathlon, she competes side-by-side with athletes who have full use of their limbs. She began competing in Ironman distance events, which include 2.4 miles of swimming, 112 miles of cycling and 26.2 miles of running. In 2012, Dentler competed i n t he I ron m a n World Championship in Kona, Hi. As she handcycled a grueling 15-mile climb on scorching hot
pavement through lava fields, Dentler knew that time was running out to meet the cycling cut off time to continue to the next phase of the competition. Behind her was the truck that picked up athletes who couldn’t go on. Every 15 minutes or so, the driver would call out to her. She remembered him saying, “You’re not going to make that bike cutoff, so why don’t you quit now?” She didn’t want to, but she was so far behind, “I had to make the agonizing decision to quit.” On her way back to town she began to cry, feeling like a failure. Dentler decided to try again the next year, and with the help of her husband and her “A-Team” of coaches, trainers, fellow athletes, family and friends, she began to plan. At t he second Kon a Ironman, she made good time swimming, and then it was on to the bike. She felt sick at her stomach, but she persevered. She worried that she would again fail to make the cutoff time. “At that point I pushed my internal voice aside that says, ‘T his hurts, quit,’” she said. She told herself to focus on what she could control, to push harder, and to forget about the pain. “For the next 90 minutes I cranked as though my life depended on it,” she said. And she made it before the cutoff — by just three minutes. A s she t r a n sit ioned from her bike to the racing chair, she fell apart. “I began to cry, I was overwhelmed,” she said. Volunteers poured buckets of

ice on her and she sobbed for 12 minutes. T hen a race off icia l came by and said, “You better start that run or else you’re going to get cold.” Something about what he said made her perk up, and on she went — and became the first female handcyclist to complete the Ironman World Championship course. A s she wa s nea r i ng the finish line, an NBC reporter rode up beside her on a motorcycle, asking for an interview. “I’m like — what in the world?” she told the crowd at the luncheon. And she thought of how different that experience was than the year before, when the man in the truck kept telling her to quit. “That moment of victor y was wor t h t he sacrifice.” Dentler said she’s never had extraordinary athletic ability but, “I refuse to quit and I did not give up.” “I leave you with two questions — what is your Ironman and what is your finish line?”
