Religious protection legislation names ECH’s Small BY SARAH FAY CAMPBELL sarah@newnan.com A new religious prote c t ion bi l l h a s b e en introduced in the Georgia State Senate – and it’s named after Coach John Small. Small, football coach at E a s t C owe t a H i g h School, said Thursday t hat he did n’t k now anything about the bill, which was introduced Monday, until Wednesday night. That's when Sen. Matt Brass, R- N e w n a n , t o l d h i m about it. T he “Coach Sma ll R el i g i o u s P r o te c t i on Act,” SB 316, was f iled by Sen . M ich ael Wi ll i a m s , R- C u m m i n g . Sen. Ma rty Ha rbin, R-Tyrone, and Sen. Josh M c K o o n , R- C o l u m bus, whose district i nclude s a l l of Mer iwet her Count y a nd part of Troup County, are among the bill's the f ive co-sponsors. Williams is a candidate for governor.

The bill specif ically outlines that students and teachers have religious rights at school. Small, who was named ECHS head coach in January 2017, was t h r ust i nto t he spotlight at the end of the 2017 football season when a nationa l athei s t or g a n i z a t ion , t h e Freedom from Religion Fou nd at ion , obje c ted to the prayers that took place before ECHS football games. Sma l l wasn’t leading prayers – players or volu nteer com mu n it y coaches were doi ng that. But he was praying along with them. A fter t he Freedom f r o m R e l i g i o n Fo u n dation sent the school system a letter condemning Small’s actions as violations of the First A mendment, school board attorney Nat h a n L ee put out a NTH FILE PHOTO

melanie@newnan.com The 30-degree temperature and brisk wind did not stop more than 800 people from pounding the pavement Saturday morning in downtown Newnan. The group’s determination outweighed the cold weat her a s t hey walked, ran and cheered each ot her on during the 16th annual Run For Angels and Chicken Q at the First United Methodist Church off Greenville Street.

T he event ra ises money for Angel’s House, a nonprofit organization that provides a home for girls aged 13-17 years old living in foster care. Pa r ticipa nts , wh ich included people of all ages and abilities, could choose to run or walk in a 1-mile Fun Run, a 5K or 10K race. “Good job! Good job! You can do it! Keep it going,” one woman yelled encouragingly from a s id e w a l k a s r u n n e r s passed by the area. “This is so exhilarat-

ing,” said Lana Mobley, a member of Angel’s House board of directors. “We see everyone’s hard work culminate into today’s event, plus all the excitement a nd love ever yone brings to the race. It really warms our hearts.” Mobley said the number of participants in the Run for Angels was down this year; which she partially attributed to the flu virus. But the number of sponsors for the event

Every dime donated will help Angel’s House. “It will support all aspects of the home and the teenage ladies that live there, so they will have everything they need,” Mobley said. “Whether there’s two ladies or ten, the expenses remain … and all the money stays in Coweta County.” Mobley said she should have a final tally of funds by the end of the week.

Sheriff’s Office takes aim at new sporting clays fundraiser By CLAY NEELY clay@newnan.com This fall, the Coweta County Sheriff’s Office will be hosting a brand new event designed to raise funds for Project SAFE. On Oct. 20, the first annual “SAFE Clays for Kids Tournament” will be held at Blalock Lakes. All proceeds of the tournament will go directly to Project SAFE (Students A re For Education), a course taught by school resource officers to all Coweta County fifthgrade students. For the last 23 years, the sheriff’s office hosted the Bedrock Golf Tournament as their primary fundraiser for Project SAFE. After the recent closing of Orchard Hills Golf Course, Sheriff Mike Yeager said it was a great time to launch a new fundraiser. “We had contemplated doing a clay shoot for a

while and started looking into it,” Yeager said. When Orchard Hills closed their doors, that was the sign we needed to try a new idea. I like playing golf and shooting and think a lot of people do, too.” Project SAFE is a program taught in all 21 elementary schools of Coweta County. The 12-week program covers topics like handling stress and disagreements without violence, self-esteem, bullying, internet safety and staying in school, as well as avoiding drugs. The program is taught to all fifth-graders one day per week for 12 weeks, and on the side, courses are also taught to younger elementary school students. Using their own bank account, separate from the Coweta County Sheriff’s Office, Project SAFE is accountable for its own resources and provides T-shirts and certificates of completion to all of the program’s graduates, 1,800 to 2,000 students each year. “The budget pays for the salaries of our guys, but everything else we do in the classrooms relies on contributions and fundraising,” Yeager said. “Blalock Lakes has been tremendous, and we’re looking forward to teaming up with them along with our longtime sponsors like Redneck Gourmet, Buffalo Rock and Kimbles Commissary.” The cost of the tournament is $80 per person or $320 per team. Sponsorship of a station is $100. Food, drinks and snacks will be provided for individuals and teams before, during and after the tournament. Participants must provide their own shotgun, preferably a 12 or 20 gauge, but shot shells will be included. “We wanted to make it affordable to anyone, especially someone who might not normally participate in something like this,” Yeager said. “It’s a tremendous value. We provide food, 50 rounds of shells – it’s a bargain, especially at one of the premier courses in the region." The deadline for team entry and payment is Sept. 22. All questions and registration may be directed to Capt. Stephen Crook at the Coweta County Sheriff’s Office at 770-253-1502. **** Clay Neely: clay@newnan.com, @clayneely

of our approximately 3,000 employees,” Barker said. More than 20,000 students currently are enrolled in Coweta County’s 31 schools, which welcomed students Friday for the start of the 2017-18 academic year. Local law enforcement and school transportation officials worked in advance to remind drivers to allow extra time for travel and to use extreme caution in school zones and around school buses, especially during loading and unloading. “It takes everyone working together to return to school procedures in our community,” Barker said. Still, it will take awhile to get back into school-year habits, so drivers should remain diligent when classes resume Monday. Apart from following the law and using common sense, Sheriff Mike Yeager said the surest way for drivers to increase safety is to slow down and give themselves extra time until the back-to-school frenzy settles into routine. “We have a lot of people in a hurry,” he said. “People need to allow themselves enough time to leave home and get where they are going in a safe manner, and we’ll get through another school opening.” Barker said first-day reports were overwhelmingly positive. “I had a chance to visit several schools and spoke with many of our principals about their first day back in session,” he said. “Reports were very positive. We are looking forward to a great year.” Coweta County’s elementary school days are 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.; middle school days are 8:20 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.; and high school days are 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The Central Educational Center’s first and second blocks are from 8:15-11:05, and third and fourth blocks are from 12:30-3:10 p.m.

By CLAY NEELY clay@newnan.com This fall, the Coweta County Sheriff’s Office will be hosting a brand new event designed to raise funds for Project SAFE. On Oct. 20, the first annual “SAFE Clays for Kids Tournament” will be held at Blalock Lakes. All proceeds of the tournament will go directly to Project SAFE (Students A re For Education), a course taught by school resource officers to all Coweta County fifthgrade students. For the last 23 years, the sheriff’s office hosted the Bedrock Golf Tournament as their primary fundraiser for Project SAFE. After the recent closing of Orchard Hills Golf Course, Sheriff Mike Yeager said it was a great time to launch a new fundraiser. “We had contemplated doing a clay shoot for a

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-the-art learning environment for training detector 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 held a single training room, 35 kennels and kept just nine members on staff. Now, the facility hosts eight training rooms, 80 kennels and approximately 26 staff members. Trainer James Mason came along from Orlando. Prior to his role as a training specialist 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 said beagles and beagle mixes are the agency’s preferred breed of dog at the airport because of their keen sense of smell, non-threatening size, high food drive and gentle disposition with the public. The ages of those in training range between 1 to 3 years old and are required to have a friendly personality. The USDA began its detector dog program, “Beagle Brigade,” at the Los Angeles International 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 training 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 main kennel where they begin their training.” Trainers like Mason judge a prospect’s reaction to public places and crowds of people. The dogs are then evaluated by a veterinarian where they are tested for heartworms and undergo 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 facilities. Occasionally, Jack Russell terriers are recruited to work in Guam finding brown tree snakes. “They never actually see the snakes,” Mason said. “We train them 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. Later, their detection skills may be modified depending on their home port. Non-target food items such as chocolate and cheese are placed in luggage to help trainers keep beagles from responding to their favorite treats. Inside the training 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 Salvation Army along with a large amount of clothing. Several of the dogs currently in training 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 eradicate the threat, including the use of detector dogs that are specialized to find the snails. USDA dogs have also been trained to find Asian longhorn beetles, Mediterranean fruit fly larvae and even worked in the Chesapeake Bay wetlands helping to eradicate nutria, an invasive semi-aquatic rodent, from the Delmarva Peninsula. Mason said there will always be new challenges 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. **** Clay Neely: clay@newnan.com, @clayneely

Office, 237 Jackson St., Newnan on Aug. 14 at 7:30 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. and on Aug. 21 at 6 p.m. Each year, the board of tax assessors is required to review the assessed value for property tax purposes of all taxable property in the county. The total value of all taxable property is known as the tax digest. When the trend of prices on properties that have recently sold in the county indicate there has been an increase in the fair market value of any specific property, the board of tax assessors is required by law to redetermine the value of such property and increase the assessment. This is called a reassessment. Each year, Georgia law requires taxing agencies to calculate a millage rate that would produce the same amount of revenue as the previous year’s rate on existing properties. That is called the rollback rate. Adoption of any rate higher than the rollback rate is considered a tax increase. A mill is equal to one dollar for each $1,000 in assessed property value.

approach, but he has been found guilty of misdemeanor contempt by a federal judge. Jordan and Arpaio have known each other since 2013. They met when Jordan, who was Grantville’s police chief at the time, visited Arizona with his wife. The Jordans stopped to see Arpaio, and Jordan and Arpaio had their photograph taken together, while Jordan was wearing his Grantville Police uniform. When that photograph appeared in The Newnan Times-Herald, Jordan was suspended for a short time. He was reinstated, but Arpaio – upon learning of the city’s action – publicly offered to come to Georgia to offer his support to Jordan. Jordan, who now works for a security firm, is returning the favor. He has talked with Arpaio by telephone and is planning a trip soon to Arizona to see and offer support to the former sheriff. “He did tell me he was appealing the judge’s decision,” Jordan said. The political defiance that made Arpaio popular and seemingly untouchable as metro Phoenix's sheriff of 24 years played a role in his being found guilty in court in Phoenix, according to The Associated Press. He was convicted of a crime for ignoring a U.S. court order to stop traffic patrols that targeted immigrants. TV interviews and news releases that the media-savvy lawman used over the years to promote his immigration crackdowns came back to bite him, the AP reported. The judge who found him guilty of the misdemeanor cited comments Arpaio made about keeping up the patrols, even though he knew he was not allowed. Arpaio, 84, is set to be sentenced Oct. 5 and could face up to six months in jail. Attorneys who have followed the case told the AP they doubt someone his age would be incarcerated. In September 2013, Jordan was suspended for a week without pay after his visit with Arpaio. Then-City Manager Johnny Williams suspended Jordan saying the police chief violated a policy requiring them “to inform me of anything that is not routine in nature.” At the time, Williams stated, "A trip to Arizona and an article in the paper that was not discussed with me or the police committee is not routine." "If I have to fly down to Georgia to defend him, I'll do it," Arpaio said in a 2013 interview. "That is how much I support him."

Jordan, who now works for a security firm, is returning the favor. He has talked with Arpaio by telephone and is planning a trip soon to Arizona to see and offer support to the former sheriff. “He did tell me he was appealing the judge’s decision,” Jordan said. The political defiance that made Arpaio popular and seemingly untouchable as metro Phoenix's sheriff of 24 years played a role in his being found guilty in court in Phoenix, according to The Associated Press. He was convicted of a crime for ignoring a U.S. court order to stop traffic patrols that targeted immigrants. TV interviews and news releases that the media-savvy lawman used over the years to promote his immigration crackdowns came back to bite him, the AP reported. The judge who found him guilty of the misdemeanor cited comments Arpaio made about keeping up the patrols, even though he knew he was not allowed. Arpaio, 84, is set to be sentenced Oct. 5 and could face up to six months in jail. Attorneys who have followed the case told the AP they doubt someone his age would be incarcerated. In September 2013, Jordan was suspended for a week without pay after his visit with Arpaio. Then-City Manager Johnny Williams suspended Jordan saying the police chief violated a policy requiring them “to inform me of anything that is not routine in nature.” At the time, Williams stated, "A trip to Arizona and an article in the paper that was not discussed with me or the police committee is not routine." "If I have to fly down to Georgia to defend him, I'll do it," Arpaio said in a 2013 interview. "That is how much I support him."
