Downtown merchants, police discuss rally strategy


Local business owners Amy Murphy and Margaret Sanders voice their concerns about how the upcoming white supremacist rally may affect downtown merchants. Police held an open forum at the Public Safety Complex in an effort to keep an open line of communication between business owners and the city.

OWNERS DEBATE KEEPING DOORS THEIR OPEN DURING THE UPCOMING WHITE SUPREMACIST RALLY BY CLAY NEELY Tu e s d a y m o r n i n g , downtown Newnan business ow ners gat hered at t he New na n Police Department for a Q&A with city officials regarding the upcoming white supremacy rally slated for April 21. Since the announcement of t he ra lly last week, a question has been looming – will downtown be open that day, or shut their doors? Pol ice C h ief D ou g-

las “Buster ” Meadows opened the session by breaking down the plan for keeping the peace during a rally often accompanied by conflict. “The safety of our citizens and their property is our No. 1 goal,” Meadows said. Traff ic control plans were discussed, including the implementation of routes commonly used while filming is in town. With an initial roadblock starting at Spence Avenue, Greenville Street

residents will be able to access t hei r proper t y prior to the solid roadbl o c k a t t h e C owe t a County Justice Center. With roadblocks beginning at 10:30 a.m., police are encouraging people to avoid the area entirely. “T hese people wa nt a n a ud ie n c e , a nd we don’t want to give them o n e ,” M e a d ow s s a i d . Wit h severa l events pla n ned i n dow ntow n Ne w n a n on t h e 2 1 s t , police will maintain a heavy presence through-

out the day, Meadows said. Once the NSM rally begins at 3 p.m., members from over two dozen agencies will be on hand to assist and monitor the rally. “ We have 400 additional officers coming in to assist, and we’re still looking for more,” Meadows said. “We will remain on scene until we know the groups are gone from our area.”

Churches planning to pray over rally area, hold unity service, bring food to emergency workers BY W. WINSTON SKINNER A rea chu rche s a re lo ok i n g for p o sit ive ways to respond to plans by a national neo-Nazi group to hold a rally in Newnan, and Newnan P ol i c e C h i e f B u s te r Meadows gave t hem some options and advice on Monday. Meadows invited area clergy to meet with him at the Newnan Police Department on Monday morning. About 40 pastors attended the meeting, including pastors of both black and white churches and an array of denominations – Baptist, Methodist, Presbyterian, Episcopal and non-denominational. Meadows asked pastors to encourage their members to stay away from Greenville Street Park on April 21 when the National Socialist Movement has scheduled a rally from 3 -5 p.m. Local officials are expecting Antifa counter-protesters to be in Newnan that afternoon, as well. “These groups feed off each other,” Meadows said. “Everywhere they go, there are problems.” Meadows told pa stors it will be easier for

local law enforcement to handle the situation with fewer people in the protest area. He also said extremist groups will cou nt at tenda nce by local citizens as support for their cause. “We need to help law enforcement,” stressed D r. Wa y n e Je n k i n s , Western Baptist Association missionary. “We don’t need to do anything that will ma ke their job tougher.” Meadows told the pastors he wanted them to be able to recommend some options to their members – ”something to do besides sitting at home fuming about sitting at home.” Apostle Debra Harris of Kingdom Connected Mi n istries International and Ignite the Fire invited Christians to attend a prayer service at the Greenville Street Park on April 20 at 7 p.m. People participating in that activity may also prayer walk the downtown area. A u n it y ser v ice i s being planned for 3 p.m. on April 21 at St. Smyrna Baptist Church on Heery Road on Newnan’s west

Local musician, business owner to tour with Indigo Girls DOUG KEES IS TAKING A HIATUS FROM HIS DAY JOBS TO PLAY ROCK-N-ROLL BY MELANIE RUBERTI


Singer, songwriter, guitarist and Georgia native Michelle Malone belts out one of her signature blues / rock songs during a live performance. The twice Grammy- nominated performer just released her latest album titled “Slings and Arrows.” Doug Kees will hitting the road this May with his electric guitar and some high-profile names. T he owner of Musicology off Spring Street in New na n, Kees will perform a longside his friend, singer/songwriter Michelle Malone and fellow mu sici a n s a s t he opening act for the Indigo Girls. “For me, it’s a great cha nce to stretch a nd challenge my abilities. To find my role in a new combination of players,” said Kees. “I’ve always liked that ‘side role’ …. help her (Malone) feel confident, cut loose and do her thing. The challenge is, there’s a lot of songs to learn and you want to play them without really thinking about it.” Malone will debut her new record “Slings and Arrows,” on the tour. The

album officially launched on March 2. The bluesy, rock-n-roll album has already landed on the Billboard Blues chart, said Malone. “It is s really an Americana Blues rock record,” she said. “Most of the songs were written with intent to inspire people and bring them together. T here ’s b e en a g re at divide in our countr y within the past year and half or so. I want to bring people together, no matter what side of the aisle you’re on, no matter the political or religious affiliation. I wanted to be part of solution, not part of the problem.” Malone, a Georgia native and two-time Grammy-nominated arti st , descr ibed “ Sl i ngs and Arrows” as a Georgia record. Almost everything affiliated with the album – from the studio it was recorded in to the

visual arts designers – are located in the Peach state. “Why do I need to go somewhere else? Everyt h i n g I ne ed i s r ig ht here,” Malone said. “This is where I feel the most comfortable. The ‘Georgia sound’ comes out of me naturally and I don’t want to change that.” The state designation a lso encompa sses t he musicians who worked on the album – including Kees. “About this time last yea r, she reformed a n e a rl i e r b a n d o f h e r s wh ic h w a s si g n e d to Arista in early 90’s (Drag the River). But the guitar player didn’t want to come back, so I took his place,” Kees said. “She said, ‘I have a new album I need to work on, but no concept.’ So, she came down and we played some

side. “The churches need to come to get her,” Meadows said. “What better way t ha n to h a ve c h u r c h e s c o m ing together for a unity s er v ice – away f rom downtown.” D u r i n g Mond ay ’s meeting, Meadows was asked if food could be provided to the public safety workers coming to town on April 21. Meadows sa id food could be brought to the Coweta County Justice Center, which will be t h e s t a g i n g a re a for law enforcement that day, or to the Newnan Fi re Depa r tment on Jefferson Street.

More specific details on that project will be announced soon. “We’re making sure we have enough people to keep t h is contained,” Meadows told the ministers.

Water barrels f illed

w it h 1 ,000 ga llons of water each will be used to cha n nel peo ple, including keeping t he NSM g roup a nd Antifa protesters separated. “We’re striving to get them into town a nd out of tow n ,” he said. “Our main goal is to pr o te c t o u r c it i z e n s and their property.” Harris talked about the motivation behind t h e A p r i l 2 0 p r a ye r gathering, saying she would like to see every inch of ground in the pa rk per meated w it h prayer. Harris said she was impressed with the preparation Meadows

a nd ot her s a re m a king for the NSM rally. “When you have your system set up and you put God into it, you’re going to succeed,” she said. She said that prayer can ma ke the NSM v isit a dud for t he white supremacists. “ I ’m not ex pe c t i n g a ny t h i n g to h app en . We’re looking for this t h i ng to t u r n aga i nst them, rather tha n for them,” she said. She invited those present to attend t he Apr i l 20 prayer t i me and to invite others. “It ’s not about d e n o m i n a t i o n s . I t ’s not about agendas. It’s

not about gender. It ’s about prayer,” Ha rris said.

After the duo worked on the album, they, along with bassist Robby Handley for med t he t r io t he Hot Toddies in December of 2017.

A sen se of com munity unity, however, is also growing. “Newnan and Coweta Cou nt y a re going to come out stronger a nd better than ever before,” the police chief predicted. “T h is g roup coming does not represent New n a n a nd Cowet a County.”

Local physical therapist wins top honor BY MELANIE RUBERTI


Local physician Latoya Stephens says she is looking forward to traveling north to compete in the famed Boston Marathon.

Local doctor to run in Boston Marathon BY TAYLOR ROBINS Latoya Stephens, a local resident, has qualified for Monday’s 1 2 2 nd B o s ton M a r a t h on a n d is set to leave for Hopk inton, Mass. on Friday. Stephens’ colleagues at Ciao Bella Medical Center a nd Spa t h rew t he r u n ner a s u r pr i s e sendoff party on Wednesday. “ It ’s pret t y over whel ming,” said Stephens. “I mean, I k new ever yone was happy for me because they had been see-

ing me train. And they know I get up every morning and run before I come here. But I didn’t expect them to do all of this.” Stephens, a loca l physicia n, has been training since December for her big event . Tra i ning includes an average of running 50-60 miles per week, and she adds a little cross-training and weights. To qualify for the marathon, one has to run 3:40. Stephens qualif ied with a 3:36 time. “My goal is just to run,” said

Stephens about her plans for the ma rathon. “I just wa nt to r un my best race. I’ve already quali f ied to r u n Boston aga i n for next year, so I don’t have that stress. But because I have been training so hard I really would like to run my best time. So to run my best time I would need to run faster than 3:34.” T h e B o s to n M a r a t h o n h a s been held annually each April s i n c e 1 8 9 7. A p p r o x i m a t e l y 500,000 spectators attend the event each year. It’s Ryan Morton’s job to help people get back on their feet and moving again. “My main goal is to help t hem get out of bed and walking again, regain their strength and restore movement,” he said. Morton is a physical therapist at the HealthSout h Rehabi l itation Hospit a l of New n a n off Newnan Crossing Boulevard. He’s worked for the medica l center for more than three years - before the building officially opened their doors in Newnan. His hard work, positive attitude and determination has won over his patients - and fellow colleagues. Morton was recently named the HealthSouth 2017 Employee of the Year. “I did n’t ex pect to win it,” he said. “ … But it is nice to be recognized for doing a good job.” “Ryan has many great qualities, but the one quality that stands out is he always takes the opportunity to go above a nd beyond for h i s patients and the staff,” sa id Kent Bucha na n , Hea lt hSout h’s d i rector of therapy. “He has the reputation of going the extra mile and definitely has a heart of

servitude.” Mor ton prev iou sly won the qua rterly achievement award. An employee is chosen for the reward every few mont hs a nd is nom inated by his peers. Hea lt hSout h off icials then choose the “Employee of the Year” from those designated winners. “For the staff to pick me, I guess I’m doing something right,” Morton said with a smile. “To be nominated by my peers makes me feel good.” But it wasn’t just his colleagues that helped him take home the top award. His patients did too. “I’m consistently gett i n g fe e dbac k a b out Ryan from them when he’s not around. They’ll say, ‘ Rya n i s a lways attentive a nd profession a l a nd k nows exactly what I need.’ He takes time to get to know his patients and tailor a program specifically for them - and that ma kes a huge impact on t hem ,” Buch a n a n stated. “ H i s pat ient s love him. They tell us that all the time,” added Renee M a n sou r McGraw, a human resource assistant with HealthSouth. Morton received his undergraduate degrees

Deputy Chief Mark Cooper speaks during the meeting on Tuesday morning. Police are letting business owners determine if they want to remain open on April 21.

Police requested all dow ntow n busi ness ow ners remove a ny objec t s out side t hei r businesses that could possibly be picked up or t h row n . However, the decision to remain open rests squa rely on t he shou lders of t he bu si ne s s ow ner s themselves. “ S t ay i n g op e n i s a decision you’ll have to make,” Meadows said. The question of issui ng t he per m it to t he group was posed by a mem b er of t he aud ience. Cit y At tor ney Brad Seers ex pla i ned t he posit ion t he cit y took. By allowing the group a permit to gat her i n t he pa rk , it gave the city more control over the situation. “Everyone has a First Amendment right,

whether you agree with them or not,” he said. “The 11th Circuit o f Fe d e r a l C o u r t o f Appeals has ruled it’s an expense that has to be born by the community, not the individual who is participating.” S e er s s a id t he c it y a lso reached out to several constitutional law yers who ca me to the same conclusion. “ It ’s a p e r m i s s i ble activity under the Constitution and the First Amendment,” he said, and addressed the a r g u ment of “ i nc ite ment” being an exception to freedom of speech laws. “ Unt i l t h at (i ncite m e n t) h a p p e n s , y o u c a n’t pre suppose ,” Seers sa id . “ We h ave procedu res i n place for off icers to d i rec t

individuals who ex h i bit t ho s e ac t iv ities and conduct to be a rrested i m mediately and removed from the scene.” Off icia ls have been i n contact wit h ot her cities who have hosted the NSM recently and d e te r m i n e d t h e v i o lence primarily origin a te d f r o m c o u n te rprotesters , accord i ng to Seers. Following the meeti ng, severa l bu si ness owners discussed their plans for the 21st. Mark Knox, owner of K nox Fu r n it u re , sa id he won’t be closing his doors, but will be monitor i n g t he sit u at ion intently. His business sits only a few hundred ya rd s f rom t he pa rk , and hosts a potentially desirable parking


lot. A nyone who isn’t d oi n g b u s i n e s s w i t h him will be towed, he said. “I don’t think I’ll do much business that day anyway, but I hate to bow down to these p e ople a nd clo s e my doors,” he said. Dow ntow n restauranteurs Casey Smith, Margaret Sanders and Amy Murphy also declined to close their doors preemptively. “The message is this is our town and everyone deserves the right to come to work every d a y, a n d we c o n t r o l our dow ntow n na rrative,” Murphy said. “At the end of the day, our city is taking measures to en s u re ou r s a fe t y and we support them, just like they support us.” Sm it h sa id he’l l be c on du c t i n g b u s i n e s s as usual. If things slow dow n , he m ig ht send servers home and close early. However, he says his restaurant is open to anyone who is hungry or thirsty. “A s l o n g a s t h e y b e h a ve , I d o n’ t c a r e who comes inside,” he said. Local craft beer prove yor Ja s on K a nner sa id he’ll be r unning Ace Growlers by h i m sel f t h at day a nd a l low i ng h i s employees to stay home. He’ll b e c lo si n g h i s do or s du r i n g t he r a l ly, but will be reopening that evening. “We have an obligat i on to t h i s c om m unity to not serve alcohol if it’s going to harm someone,” he said. “If someone is hot under the collar or could be a l ready be u nder t he

inf luence, we have the right to refuse service to anyone.” Kanner believes law en forcement h a s t he sit u at ion f u l ly u nder control. His message to protesters? “Don’t tread on New n a n ,” he s a id . “ T hese out siders a re pok i ng a big ger bea r than they realize.” However, severa l ot her bu si ne s se s a re closing their doors that day. Jen ny Jones sa id C or n e r A r t s G a l le r y won' t open t h at d ay, citing safety concerns for her artists. For Phyllis Gra ha m at L et T hem Eat Toffee , t he deci sion to close was not made

out of fear, but due to being out of town that weekend and not wanting to leave employees in the way of any variables that could arise. Meadows t ha n ked loca l busi ness ow ners for t hei r enga ge ment with the process and reiterated an open line of communication between everyone will be the key to success in an event like this. “ We r e a l i z e y o u r concer n s a nd we’re t a k i ng ever y prec aution to eli m i nate a ny violence,” he said. “We won’t tolerate any misconduct whatsoever."

Heritage School students preparing to perform at Lincoln Center in New York are, from left, Thomas Morenzi, Dayton Warren, Francesca Petrino and Liam Walker.

NTH STAFF REPORTS Four Heritage School students recently per for med w it h t he Nationa l Honor Chorus at Lincoln Center in New York City. Seniors Dayton Warren and Liam Walker, sophomore Francesca Petrino and freshman Thomas Morenzi were a mong st udents conducted by Dr. Martha Shaw. “Performing at Lincoln Center was probably t he most i mportant performance of my life,” Petrino said. “To have that honor at the age of 16 is a blessing.” “The Heritage School re ceived t h i s i nv it ation because of t he high level of musicianship demonstrated by the singers, as well as the exceptional recommendation of Dr. Martha Shaw,” said Dr. Jonathan Griffith, artistic d i re c tor a nd pr i n c ipal conductor for Dist i n g u i s he d Concer t s Internationa l of New York, which produced the event. The singers and their chorus teacher, Karen Hurd, spent f ive days and four nights in New York City in prepara-

tion for their concert. Students had three rehea rsa ls a nd spent time sightseeing, visiti ng h istorica l la ndmarks and attending a Broadway show. “I am confident Dayton, Liam, Francesca, a n d T h o m a s ’s l i v e s have been changed by this experience a nd lo ok for wa rd to t a king more trips like this with our future singers,” Hurd said. As conductor, Shaw – founding director of the Spivey Ha ll Children’s Choir Program a s wel l a s profe s s or of music and director of choral activities at Rei n ha rdt Un iversity – helped students conn e c t w it h s on g s s he chose for their “Reflection of Light” concert, ex pla i n i ng why she chose each song a nd what they mean to her. “Dr. Shaw is not only a world-renowned female conductor, but a person who changes t he l ive s of t he st udents she works with through her kindness, w isdom , a nd musica l artistry,” Hurd said. “I was thrilled to receive her personal invitation for my students to perform. To see their faces

light up as they walked onto that historic stage for the first time made the entire trip worth it. “The brilliance with which they performed is something I will cherish for a lifetime,” Hu rd added. “T hey became true artists on that stage and received a standing ovation as proof. It further supported my f irm belief t h a t t h e p e r for m i n g arts are vital to a stud e n t ’s we l l - r o u n d e d education. It wa s t h r i l l i n g to see my st udents su rrounded by young men a nd women f rom a l l across A merica a nd Ca n ad a who s h a re a passion for making collegiate-level music.” Sh aw, a h i g h ly renow ned cli n icia n a nd g ue st conduc tor throughout the United S t a te s a s we l l a s i n Canada and Korea, said the young singers were “a joy to conduct.” “ T hey were wa r m , k i n d a n d ve r y we l lprepared,” Shaw said. “This is a tribute to the si n ger s , t hei r te ac hers, and their parents. It is li fe-cha ng i ng to give a gift of travel and per for m i ng to you r children.”

“ I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness. And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not : for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world. he that rejected me, and receiveth not my words, has one that judges him : the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day. “ John 12: 46-48 American Must Stand With Israel!

gain their independence and be able to return home. That was more fulfilling and rewarding for me.” Morton joined HealthSouth in December of 2014, practically fresh out of college. According to Buchanan, Morton took it upon himself to learn all the equipment and devices within the hospital that can be used to help their patients rega i n t hei r streng t h

and restore movement in their limbs. HealthSouth is a 50 bed in-patient rehabilitation hospital. On average, Morton assists at least seven pat ients t h roug h 1 ½ hour therapy sessions every day. He said he wouldn’t have it any other way award or no award. “When you love what you do, you don’t think about be rewarded for it,” he said.
