Howard Warner Community Center playground fund still needs $25,000


The Newnan Times-Herald’s drive to raise money for the playground at the Howard Warner Community Center needs to raise $25,000 during the next few weeks. The newspaper is sponsoring the project with funding going through the Coweta Community Foundation. Ginger Jackson Queener of CCF said the playground fund currently has $44,460 in donations and pledges. The goal is $70,000. “We need to have the funding finalized by Jan. 15,” Queener said. Community work dates are set for April 27-28. The fund drive got started several months ago. In the summer, donations plateaued at $31,470, but there has been a boost in contributions since. The playground will be located at the community center on Savannah Street, which is located in a historic school building named for Howard Warner, a prominent black educator in Coweta County. Contributions so far have come from community organizations, from individuals honoring their grandchildren and from people who knew members of the Warner family. Checks payable to CCF may be sent to NTH Playground Fund, Coweta Community Foundation, P.O. Box 236, Newnan, GA 30264. Donors should include information if the gift is in memory or in honor of someone. Donations can also be made online using a credit card. When donating online, be sure to specify the Howard Warner Playground Fund. The site is: donate



The Newnan Times-Herald’s fundraising campaign to build a playground at the Howard Warner Community Center needs to raise $25,000 in the next few weeks.

Ferguson wants changes to student loan repayment BY SARAH FAY CAMPBELL Congressman Drew Ferguson has introduced legislation making major changes to student loan repayment plans – including doing away with time-based loan forgiveness for lower-income borrowers. The “Help Students Repay Ac t ” a f fe c t s t he va r iou s i ncome-driven repay ment plans, and, if passed, would only apply to new loans. Ferguson’s legislation, House Resolution 4372, does away with an abundance of student loan repayment options and allows only two: the standard, 10-year repayment plan and a single income-based plan. Currently, borrowers making loan payments under the five existing income-driven plans make payments for 20 or 25 years – depending on the specific repayment plan. After that time, any remaining loan balance is forgiven. Ferguson’s plan does away with the time-based loan forgiveness altogether. Instead, borrowers would be responsible for paying the entire loan, but interest would stop accruing after 10 years, according to Ferguson’s staff.

My bill would simplify the repayment process and give borrowers the opportunity to pay down their loans based on their income, reducing their risk of default. The plan doesn’t affect public service loan forgiveness, or other loan forgiveness options. “Our current student loan repayment process is too complex, which only makes it more difficult for borrowers to successfully repay their loans,” Ferguson, R-West Point, said in an emailed statement. “We must empower borrowers to make active progress towards repayment. My bill would simplify the repayment process and give borrowers the opportunity to pay down their loans based on their income, reducing their risk of default.” Ferguson was asked why he wants to do away with the time-based forgivingness. Forgiveness “does not incentivize student borrowers to make significant progress on their loans, when they know

that once they reach an arbitrary cut-off year, all borrowers funds will be forgiven,” he said. “And time-based forgiveness certainly does nothing to put downward pressure on the very real problem of rising college costs, when institutions know that students can borrow past their means.” Capping the interest after 10 years “gives borrowers a better likelihood of paying down the principle on their loan, rather than simply paying down interest that continues to accrue until the loan is forgiven.” According to the congressman’s office, the repayment amount of a loan will be the same whether it’s under the 10-year standard plan or the income-based plan. The actual language of the bill states that interest will

cease accruing “after the borrower has made payments… in an amount equal to” the amount the borrower would have made based on a 10-year repayment plan, plus any capitalized interest. Members of Ferguson’s staff checked with legislative counsel after being asked whether the bill caps interest after 10 years or only after the original principal and interest have been paid. The staffer said that the legal experts assured her the legislation caps interest after 10 years. Under the legislation, borrowers on the income-based plan would have payments set at 15 percent of discretionary income. The plan calculates discretionary income as federal adjusted gross income minus 150 percent of the poverty level. Currently, some incomedriven plans set payments at 15 percent of discretionary income while others set the payment at 10 percent. Before the legislation was introduced, surveys on the issue were sent to everyone on the congressman’s email list. There were approximately 3,000 responses, according to the congressman’s office.

Coweta starting ‘Reverse 911’ system BY SARAH FAY CAMPBELL Coweta County will be implementing a “Reverse 911” system to notify residents in the event of emergencies. Tuesday night, the Coweta County Board of Commissioners voted to move forward with the system, which will be done through Code Red Mobile Alert. When the system goes active, likely in January, Coweta residents will be able to sign up to receive the alert phone calls when an active tornado warning is in their area. The alert phone calls will consist of a recorded message. Coweta Emergency Manager Director Jay Jones said that, at first, the alerts will be limited to tornado warnings. The system can give the county the ability to send out other types of emergency alerts, as well. Jones said he wants to get the system running before deciding if other types of alerts will be added. People can sign up to have the alerts sent to mobile phones or land lines, but the only way to

Coweta Can-A-Thon smashes goal of 200,000 Donated items will go to Community Food Pantry to feed the needy throughout 2018

BY SARAH FAY CAMPBELL annual event. This year’s The 34th annual Coweta C a n -A-T h on s m a s h e d its goal by raising over 216,000 food items and cash equivalents. “We’d like to say a huge thank you to our community for their support and generosity,” said Ellie S o n n i e r, C a n -A-T h o n co-chairwoman for the Newnan Junior Service League, which puts on the

goal was 200,000. “It’s amazing what our community is capable of, and we are all so proud of Coweta County,” Sonnier said. T he food item s collected go to the Coweta Community Food Pantry, which helps feed needy Cowetans all year long. Families can get one disbursement from the food pantry each month.

T he Coweta Cou nt y School System collected approximately 182,000 food items during t he Can-A-Thon. East Coweta Hig h School was this year’s top collector, but Canongate Elementary School wasn’t far behind. ECHS collected 20,941 items, and Canongate collected 19,017. While ECHS is a lmost a lways nea r the top with collections,

it’s rare for an elementary school to get those numbers. Lee Middle School was the top middle school, with a collection of 16,721. Monetary donations are calculated at three cans per dollar. Tr uet t ’s Ch ick-f i l-A spon sored t h i s yea r ’s event at the schools, and students in the top classes at ECHS, Canongate and Lee will receive passes

The school’s student government association headed up t he school’s efforts, organizing events including a student-teacher basketball game, according to Dean Jackson, public information officer for Coweta

County Schools. Volunteers from Central Baptist Church were busy at the food pantry Wednesday, getting the tens of thousands of food items checked, weighed and sorted.

Lightwire Theatre’s ‘A Very Electric Christmas’ Christmas at The Nixon Centre goes electric Dec. 7

NTH Staff Reports Lightwire T heatre, semi-f inalist on NBC's “America’s Got Talent” and winners of Tru TV's “Fake Off,” will present “A Very Electric Christmas” Dec. 7 at The Nixon Centre. Santa’s helpers are putting the final touches on presents as a young bird named Max and his family head south for the winter. When Max gets blown off course during a snowstorm, he ends up alone and lost at the North Pole. As he tries to make his way home, his adventure begins when he encounters f r iend ly ca rol i ng worms, dancing poinsettias, Nutcracker soldiers, mischievous mice and an evil Rat King. Lightwire Theatre combines theater and technology to bring stories to life in complete darkness and are internationally recognized for their signature brand of electroluminescent artistry. Lightwire co-creators Ian Carney and Corbin Popp met in New York City wh i le da nci ng i n Twyla Tharp's Movin' Out on Broadway. An immediate connection was made as they discovered their

sign up will be through the company’s website or mobile app. The “Code Red Mobile Alert” app is available for iPhone and Android. The alert company has a database of numbers in Coweta, and before the system goes live, a call will be made to ever y number in the database, informing people of the program and letting them know how to sign up. “I’m excited about it. It’s just another tool in the tool chest that we can use to notify people of emergencies in their area,” Jones sa id. T he a lerts will be based on location – residents in Grantville, for instance, won’t get an alert for a tornado warning in north Coweta, if they’re not going to be affected by it. For mobile phones, the alerts will be based on the GPS location of the phone at the time an alert goes out, Jones said. Users of the app can also sign up for text message and email alerts. The contract approved Tuesday night is wit h Onsolve and includes an initial bank of 175,000 “message time minutes” at a cost of $24,000. “Make a joyful noise unto the LORD as ye lands. Serve the Lord with gladness, come before his presence with singing. Know ye that the Lord He is God, it is He that hath made us, and not we ourselves. We are His People and the sheep of His pasture. Enter into His house With THANKSGIVING and unto His courts with praise. BE THANKFUL UNTO HIM AND BLESS HIS NAME.

Together, with their wives, Eleanor and W h it ney, Ca r ney a nd Popp began to experiment with shapes and designs to de velop pupp e t r ybased neon creatures that

quickly came to life. Based in New Orleans, Lightwire Theater continues to create and deliver i n n ov a t i ve t h e a t r i c a l experiences to audiences worldw ide i nclud i ng Hong Kong, Estonia, Canada, Belarus, China, Abu Dhabi, and as finalists on My TF1’s, The Best Le Meilleur Artiste in Paris. The process of build-

ing Lightwire Theater’s electroluminescent characters starts with the creators and the cast. They build everything from the ground up, utilizing recyclable materials including aluminum rods, election signs, skateboard wheels, dryer ducting, plumbing supplies, PVC pipes, fishing poles, duct tape, zip ties and backpacks to help

define peaks and angles. These common household items help create durable and pliable sculptures that can withstand the movement of the dancers for multiple performances. Black fabric is added to the sculpture for dimension and then lined with electroluminescent wire known as “el wire.” Unlike blacklights, “el

wire” can be powered by batteries, requires no theatrical lighting and gives a 360-degree glowing light. “A Very Electric Christmas” begins at 7 p.m. at The Nixon Centre, 1523 Lower Fayetteville Rd. in Newnan. Tickets range from $15-20 and are available at or by calling 770-254-2787.

The five holiday crimes Most police officers will tell you that crime rates tend to increase in the months of November and December. Why? It is the holiday season. People’s habits change during this time of year. Leav i ng tow n , more adult beverages, parties, depression , i ncrea sed shopping and many other things contribute to this increase. K n ow i n g a b o ut t h e common holiday crimes might be enough to prevent becoming a victim or getting yourself in trouble.


DUI – This has to be number one. The holidays are either festive or depressing. Both scenarios lead to higher rates of drinking and DUIs. Law enforcement officers are keenly aware of this. During this time, patrols routes are increased and roadblocks are implemented more frequently. As I have suggested many times in the past, being arrested for DUI is 100 percent avoidable. Trying to gauge and mathematically solve the

puzzle of your blood alcohol content by using the number of drin ks, the hours and whether you ate is not a good idea. D e si g n ate d d r iver s , ta xis a nd wa l k ing a re good ideas if you have been “overserved.”


Shoplifting – When the masses are out shopping, businesses and customers need to remain vigilant as crowded retail establish ments tend to see more arrests for shoplifting. Shoppers need to remain alert about their own personal belongings. Businesses usually keep a close watch on shoppers. Additionally, if you are even arrested for misdemeanor shoplifting, your future job outlook is dim. Employers will look past other arrests, or even convictions. But, they do not hire suspected thieves.


Entering Auto – Vehicle break-ins happen much more frequently during the holiday season because uninvited strangers expect to find gifts in cars. This happens most

home, an arrest is not likely. The medical examiner, priest and funeral director for the intruder are the likely people likely to be called. So, keep your house locked at night and, if you can legally possess firearms, purchase some and safely secure them in your home where children cannot touch them. If you are going out of town, consider a great idea that works on my land in Meriwether County; nail a couple of posted signs on trees that warn the property is under surveillance by trail cameras that we deer hunters use. Buy a couple of cameras from Walmart and place them in strategic spots. They are very easy to use, and you may get a picture of a trespasser. First Degree Burglary is a felony offense in Georg ia w it h a sentenci ng range between 1-20 years in prison.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas around Coweta County, which means many county residents have once again outdone themselves with decorating their homes with lights, ornaments and other trinkets.

Just as in years past, The Newnan Times-Herald would like to compile a list of Christmas decorations or light displays so Cowetans may ride or stop by to view the decorations. If you would like your decorations to be featured on the list, email your home address and what

type of decorations you are displaying to Kandice Bell at kandice@newnan. com Photos taken by you of your decorations are also welcome, and may be emailed to kandice@ The Ridley family has displayed snowmen for more than 20 years, and

Local author’s new release takes light-hearted look at the creative process NTH STAFF REPORTS

Newnan author Dale Lyles’ new offering teaches readers about the creative process in a light-hearted way. “Lichtenbergianism: Procrastination as a Creative Strategy” is scheduled for release Friday, Nov. 17. Lyles explained the “bizarre” title. “A group of creative

friends and I formed a kind of club 10 years ago dedicated to the idea that procrastination is a good thing, since none of us ever got around to finishing any of our major projects,” Lyles said. “We chose the 18th-century German physicist Georg Christoph Lichtenberg as our patron saint because he was a notorious

procrastinator.” The creative process was a natural topic for Lyles, who has maintained a steady presence with creative organizations ranging from Newnan Theatre Company to Backstreet Arts, where he currently works with a writers group each Thursday. An odd trend Lyles noticed was that after a couple of years of

regular work, every member of the group discovered that they were being more productive than they had before. “The guys were publishing books, writing music, changing careers, getting their Equity cards – it was weird,” he said. He decided to write a book to document the strategies used by

the Lichtenbergians as they worked through their creative processes. He developed a list of nine “precepts” which provide a framework for anyone who has always wanted to create but has never dared to. “The first precept is, of course, Task Avoidance,” Lyles said. Anyone who buys a copy from Amazon on Nov. 17 will have the

option of claiming one of several bonuses being offered by Lyles and other creative friends of his. Those bonuses can be found at http:// book-launch-bonuses . The book will be available through Amazon, Barnes and Noble and other booksellers.
