Award winning jellies heating up taste buds around Coweta County BY MELANIE RUBERTI
firstname.lastname@example.org Kim Littleton’s jams and jellies have become a hot commodity around Coweta County. Kim creates 20 different varieties of the spreadable preserves, including five kinds of her now famous “Hot Pepper Jelly.” For three years, Kim and her husband, Richard, won tops awards for the “Best Pepper Jelly” at the Kiwanis Coweta County fairgrounds. They also placed first in the division for “Best Overall Canned Goods,” said Kim. But the Hot Pepper Jellies seem to be the real show stoppers. “We sell blackberry, blueberry, peach, raspberry and a ‘regular’ pepper jelly,” Kim said. “We sell jellies using ‘normal heat,’ and some with habanero heat. We make sure to label the jellies with habaneros in them.” Kim said every jar of Hot Pepper Jelly has five types of peppers added into the jar of preserves: cayen ne, g reen pep per, hot banana, sweet PHOTO BY MELANIE RUBERTI

email@example.com In a string of recent a nd vira l situations where police have been ca l led on black fa m ilies, a loca l Subway and the Dobson family are now a part of that list. “It is just so u n fa i r that that kind of thing can happen to a regu-
la r fa mily going in to p a y f o r t h e i r f o o d ,” s a id Fel i c i a D o b s on . “We weren’t dressed in a l l black . We weren’t wearing hoodies. A nd even i f we were, t he subway employee works in a facility where she has to treat everyone fairly.” The Dobson fami l y, w h o w e r e t r a v -

The family was traveling back to their Nor t h Ca rol i na home from a fa m i ly member’s birthday celebration. The Subway stop ende d w it h a c a l l to New n a n pol ice , a f ter the family had paid for food a nd eaten at t he establishment. “I need somebody to r ide t h roug h here A SA P,” sa id t he Sub way employee on the 91 1 ca ll. “I’ve had a f a m i l y i n h e r e fo r about an hour and they’re kind of just not goi ng a ny where. A nd they keep going back to the bathroom and stuff, a nd I’ve got a back door back there.” A c c ord i n g to D o dson, the employee thought the family was going to rob her. Sandra, the employee, had been robbed before. “I told the kids that everyone has to go use t h e b a t h r o o m ,” s a i d Dobson. “The back and forth were my kids going to use the bathroom.

a r rive f i rst, but to a r r i ve e x a c t ly w h e n you’re supposed to. This year’s race went from Buffalo, New York to Nova Scotia, Canada. T h e s i s te r s j oi n e d their mother and cousin, who have been competing in the Great Race for several years. Mom Bet h Gentr y got her sta rt navigating with her father, Joe Knowles, in 1999. After her father passed away i n 2 010, her nephew, Jody K nowles , bega n driving. They rally in a 1938 Ford Ca br iole t n ic knamed “Pop’s Passion." “In the Great R ace, the older your car, the more it benef it s you because they multiply your points by the age of your car to get your final score,” Beth said. T he 19 32 Cabr iolet was the first year Ford m ade a f l at he ad V8 , a nd it was t he oldest car Beth and Knowles could get and still get the most horsepower. Beth a nd her father began rallying in Cabriolet in 2006. Her daughters drive a 1964 Dodge Dart t h at a lso h a s speci a l significance. T hei r g r a nd fat her, Sonny Gentr y, owned G e n t r y M o to r C o m pa ny, for ma ny yea rs
the local Dodge dealership, and he sold the ca r new. A few yea rs l ater, t he Da r t c a me back as a trade-in and he decided to keep it. W hen Beth’s husband Oliver was 10, he and his dad worked on restoring the Dodge. “ We’re so happy to have the car – it really brings in the family aspect. It ties our whole family together,” Olivia said. Their father and Jody help keep the cars running through the grueling race. Each night at the hotels a long the route, there’s a lot of auto m a i nten a nce going on. “If you need a pa r t and you don’t have it, t he nex t g uy ’s got it. You ju st k i nd of r u n around the hotel parking lot – somebody will have it,” Beth said. Si nce Bet h a nd her fat her bega n competing, the family has been following along behind. “ W hen I wa s ra l lyi ng w it h my dad , my mom would follow w i t h t h e k id s . T h e y never missed one,” she s a i d . “A f t e r m y d a d passed away, my nephew’s wife drove them along.” Olivia and Genna s old p r o g r a m s u n t i l they were old enough

to do the race, according to Beth. “Their ultimate goal was that they wanted to rally,” she said. Last yea r, Beth a nd Jody took f i rst place overa l l , wh i le Ol iv i a a nd Gen na took f i rst place i n t he rook ie div ision . Now bot h h a ve m ove d up i n to slightly tougher divisions. This year, Beth and Jody won the grand
champion division and placed second overall. Olivia and Genna won s e c o n d pl a c e i n t h e sportsman division and placed 10th overall. Driv i ng is t he easy part, Olivia said. “Basically, I just do what Genna says," she said. “In the car, I have to do a lot of math, every day, to make sure we’re o n t h e r i g h t t i m e ,”
G e n n a s a id . “ Yo u ’r e a lways at pit stops compa r i n g t he nu mbers to try to see who is right. You’re really st ressed out a nd you never really know until the end of the day." Being a part of The Great Race is "such an i n c r e d i bl e j o u r n e y,” Olivia said. “You get to meet so ma ny people that you never would have been able to know.
It ’s re a l ly b e en a n incredible experience and we’re really happy to be a part of it. “ We h o p e to d o i t for as long as the good Lord will let us,” she added . “ It ’s wh at we l o v e t o d o . We j u s t really feel blessed to be part of such an amazing thing a nd be surrounded by such wonderful people. It’s what we love."
i ly h a s g a i n e d s om e national attention themselves, being reported on several outlets and social media sites. T hey’ve a lso been included in the #EatingWhileBlack. “That hashtag really br i n g s te a r s to m e ,” said Dobson. “Because it’s true. That’s all we were doi ng. People from around Georgia have sent me personal messages saying how sorry they are and that they don’t tolerate that.” Dobson continued to express her appreciat ion to New n a n resid e n t s for t h e i r k i n d word s . S h e e x pl a i n s that she sha res the messages to her children. “T h is sit uation ha s made my children very aw a re t h a t t h e y c a n do absolutely nothing wrong and still be disc r i m i n ate d a g a i n st ,” sa id Dobson . “I wa nt t hem to k now t hat t here a re people t hat don’t ca re what color your sk in is a nd they will love you just the way you are.” To Dobson, this is a situation of racism. “I do not judge t he p e o p l e o f N e w n a n ,” said Dobson. “I k now there are a lot of good people ever ywhere . B ut when we f ind t hose bad seeds, we have to dea l w it h t hose bad se e d s . We can’t allow people like that to work in a public place that could potentially hurt your grandson, your daughter or you r fr iends. It ’s not fair.” Subway could not be reached for comment. However, according to Dobson, the employee is on “adm i n istrative leave” a nd t he sit uat ion is u nder rev iew. Dobson suggests training for the employee. According to employees t h at work at t he location, t he employee who ca l led t he p ol ice no lon ger works at the location. Also, according to the e m ploye e s , t h e S u b way has since received threats. According to t he employee’s former co-
workers, the incident may not i nvolve race because the woman is m a r r ie d to a m a n of color. Accordi ng to WSB TV 2, the Subway franc h i s e e ow ner i s s ue d
t h e fo l l ow i n g s t a t e ment, “I take this very s e r i o u s l y, a n d I a m f u l ly i nvest igat i ng. I h ave a lso used t h i s o p p o r t u n i t y to r e i terate to my sta ff t he i m p o r t a n c e o f m a k-

i n . We n e v e r e v e n re a l i z ed t here wa s a back door back t here because we’re just using the bathroom.” Dobson describes her fa m i ly as, “working professiona ls a nd our children do well in school.” I n t he 91 1 c a l l , t he operator tries to clarify with the employee, “You said you need an o f f i c e r to c o m e a n d check t he rest au ra nt because there’s a customer that’s been there for awhile?” To wh ic h t he Sub way employee responds, “No it’s not a customer.” “ I t ’s m o r e w o m e n t h a n m e n ,” s a y s t h e employee later in the call. The travelers i ncluded Dobson a nd her husband, Othniel, Felicia's sister and the couple’s four children. Their three daughters are ages 19, 13 and 12. Their son’s age is 8. A concerned Dobson descr ibes t h at it is harmful to describe her children as adults to the police. “They had wanted a bunch of cups so that they can get water and now they’re all coming b a c k a n d for t h w it h not clea r c ups , a nd I believe they’re getting sod a a nd not water,” said the employee during the 91 1 ca ll. “A nd they need to go. They just need to go.” “ My h u s b a n d p a i d f o r e v e r y o n e ’s f o o d with a debit card,” said Dobson. “He asked for seven cups so that we could put ice in them. We t r a v e l e d w i t h snacks and had a jug of Minute Maid. We don’t really drin k sodas. T h at ’s why we a sked for the cups.” Dobson explains that t he “ not c le a r c up s ” was her travel cup that she filled with ice. “ We d i d n ’ t s t e a l a ny t h i ng,” sa id Dob son. “It was a situation t hat we were blessed to wa l k away f rom ,” said Dobson. “We see the news where police a re c a l led on pe ople of color. A nd it j u s t ends up w rong. T h at phone call was dangerous. We just happened
to have a great police off icer who wa s wel l trained.” W hen t he responding officer arrived, he assessed the situation and apologized to the family. “If an officer arrives on a scene and there’s nothing going on and he sees nothi n g c r i m i n a l or a nyt h i ng l i ke t h at ,” sa id Buster Meadows, New na n police ch ief, “a ll he could’ve done was clea r t he scene and talk to the people i nvolved. T he off icer ha ndled the situation correctly.” A police report was not made. “When someone interrupts you in that way it just shocks you,” s a i d D o b s o n . “ Yo u k now it h appen s but there’s no way to prepare for that. There’s no way to prepare your kids for that.” Accord i n g to D ob son, the police officer told the family that he got a ca ll about them n o t p ay i n g for t h ei r food. “ It ’s a c a l l of s e rv ice,” sa id Meadows . “People feel like they need us to go. It does tie up some other calls that may come in, but officers are assigned to the call and they handle it.” Dobson describes t he rest of t heir road trip as “saddening,” as her children were visibly upset. In other cities around the country, news outlets have repor ted t he police bei ng ca l led on peo ple of color for selling water bottles on a sidewalk, grilling in a park, swimming in a subdiv i sion pool , wea r i n g socks to a community pool a nd mow i ng t he lawn. The police were called on a black state representative, in Oregon, for ca mpa ign ing door-to-door as well. “If t here’s no criminal activity it ma kes me wonder why t hey called the police t o s t a r t w i t h ,” s a i d Meadows . “ I f t here’s no c r i m i n a l a c t iv it y t here ’s not muc h we can do.” The Dobson fam-

A peaceful moment
ALEX MCRAE Independence Day was just around the corner. People everywhere else were planning barbecues and parties and packing their cars for vacation trips. Not here. The cavernous waiting room at the supersized medical facility was packed. No streamers were hung from the walls. No bunting was draped across the entrance. No patriotic music played on the sound system. The mood was quiet and serious with a hint of anxiety. Just a few feet away, in the offices beyond t he wa iti ng room, friends and loved ones were being poked, prodded, stuck, squeezed and slid in and out of noisy machines. Lives and futures were literally on the line. Sitting nervously, tapping their toes or gnawing their nails as a friend or loved one
was diagnosed or treated was a group that appeared to include at least one member of every race, religion, shape, color, size, ethnicity – and opinion – in the world. We could have posed for the official 2018 Portrait of America. There was little else to do but size each other up, trying to guess who might start trouble and who might stop it. The tension was thick and nerves were raw. A wrong word could easily have sent tempers flaring. It never happened. We had more important things on our minds. Directly across from me, an older couple who appeared to be Asian spoke quietly to each other in a language I didn’t understand. Next to them an African-American man was sandwiched between two little girls who sat quietly and snuck looks at me. I looked back. Smiles were exchanged. “Beautiful young ladies,” I said to the man. “Thank you,” he said. “They got their mother’s looks, but they can still be a handful.” A few seats away, a couple of teenagers sporting fancy shoes and big smiles were on their own, waiting for someone to be treated and released. They were too tight to fight, but passed the time trying to nudge each other into some harmless mischief. A woman speaking what I recognized as Spanish pointed two youngsters to seats beside her where they sat quietly as the minutes ticked away. A child started crying. No one
Ask Miss Pearl
seemed to mind. His mother passed the baby to the man next to her and went back to be seen by a doctor. The child calmed right down. When the mother came out, she was clearly distracted and started walking away. As the family followed, the Asian man jumped to his feet and in perfect English said, “Ma'am, you forgot your bag.” She collected her purse and thanked him in a Southern drawl Scarlett O’Hara would have envied. For almost an hour, people came and went. Some may have been suspicious of me because of how I looked or talked. They might have suspected I felt the same way about them. But no one raised a voice in protest or a fist in anger. No one asked my political opinion or who I’d voted for. No one really cared. I got it. We had been brought together by circumstance and chance, but left to ourselves, forced to focus on really important things, like the well-being of a loved one, we got along just fine. For a moment, maybe two, it occurred to me that if we could see each other at our most vulnerable, in settings where courtesy and manners mattered more than ideology, we might all be able to get along a little better. It was a brief thought. But a nice one. Alex McRae is the author of “There Ain’t No Gentle Cycle on the Washing Machine of Love.” He can be reached at: alexmmcrae@ gmail.com
Ummm, I trust you will insist that your daughter use her own money to pay the fine.
MISS PEARL Dear Miss Pearl, Would you believe my teenage daughter has already gotten a ticket for talking on her phone while driving? Shouldn’t she have received a warning since this is a new law? Yes, I believe it, and no, she should not have received a warning. I wish I could personally thank the officer who gave her the ticket! Surely this new law did not come as a surprise to you and your daughter – we have been inundated with information regarding the changes in phone use while driving. And social media has been blowing up with the new guidelines. I am thrilled about this new law and hopefully there will be a significant decrease in car accidents. I have spent years preaching to Little and Baby about the dangers of texting and driving. Maybe now they (and everyone else) will do right by this law.
And Another Thing... My lengthy “sabbatical” from pounding the pavement is finally over and I was excited to set a time and distance goal on a recent morning. The weather was perfect and I was almost giddy with anticipation. I didn’t simply fail – I failed miserably. The problem was that there was heavy visitation and dog petting on my route. I had to stop and speak to everyone, not because I felt like I had to, but because I wanted to. There is a lot of wisdom out early in the morning and most of the time I am on the receiving end of it. I would much rather visit than meet a goal or win the race. And anyhow, those of us who don’t win get the same T-shirt and medal as the winner. Sounds like a no-brainer to me!

She gladly lends her advice to everyone whether they want it or not, because, "After all, it's all about the children and setting a good example for them."

Bridging the Gap seeking support as ministry grows and changes Sign up for

God hath spoken once; twice have I heard this; that power belongeth unto God. Also unto thee, O Lord, belongeth mercy: for thou renderest to every man according to his work. Psalm 62:11-12 America Must Stand With Israel! God is Good All The Time The W. Reece Payton Co., Inc.

Community leaders chat prior to the start of the program at Breakfast at the Gap, a first step in seeking to raise community awareness and support for Bridging the Gap’s expanding ministries.
BY W. WINSTON SKINNER firstname.lastname@example.org “There is no doubt what God is doing here,” local pastor Clint Nolder said at a meeting to connect Bridging the Gap with potential supporters and partners. “There’s something special going on in Newnan,” agreed John Melia, who recently completed a stint as interim executive director of the ministry. “You can’t help but be blessed by this place.” Bridging the Gap is look i ng for f i n a nci a l support as the ministry expands. The project began in 2009, distributing food that would have been thrown away by local grocery stories to people in need and to local groups helping those people. Today BTG has a ministry that offers food regularly but also offers laundry and shower facilities for the homeless. BTG’s staff and volunteers, in fact, help people with a wide range of issues. Staff members even have been known to transport people needing help with long-term substance abuse problems to facilities several hours away. The needs are growing. In May 2017, BTG served 403 households. By May of this year, that number had grown to 825 households. Although the economy seems to be improving, many people are caught in a tough situation. “A lot of people we work
with fall just above the poverty gap,” Melia said. He told the group gathered for breakfast that they will be encountering people who have needs. “You have a place to send them, and we need your help,” Melia said. “We need reliable donations. We need a reliable income.” Donations to help with the ministry may be sent to Bridging the Gap, 19 First Avenue, Newnan, GA 30263. Melia said BTG often does seemingly sma ll things for people that can make a huge difference in that person getting life back on track. “W hen lives are restored, amazing things happen,” he said. The organization has undergone several major changes in the past six months, including the departure of Alison Wallace – founder and longtime head of the project – and an interim period when Melia led BTG. Last month, the organization held Breakfast at the Gap, inviting community leader to enjoy pancakes while learning about the breadth of BTG’s outreach and the need for more funding. Bridging the Gap is open for people who need showers or laundry facilities on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 a.m.-1:30 p.m. A hot meal is served both days. Food is distributed on
a first-come, first-served basis on Saturdays at 8 a.m. BTG’s headquarters are at 19 First Avenue. At the June 15 breakfast, Matthew Pass, president of the BTG board, praised Melia for his work with the ministry since February. “John has really done an amazing job leading us toward actualizing our mission,” he said. Pass also talked about the entire staff and their approach to people seeking help and those coming to volunteer. “They’re loving on people – whether they’re coming down here to be served or to serve,” Pass said. “ W h at a n a m a z i n g group of people we have here. That’s what makes New n a n a nd Cowet a County a great place. That’s what makes Bridging the Gap great,” he told the approximately 100 people at the breakfast. A rea churches have always been part of Bridging the Gap’s formula. Foundation Church has been involved in several BTG projects recently. Nolder, lead pastor at Foundation Church, said BTG serves as “an extension of our staff,” connecting the church with needs in the community. BTG offers “an incredible opportunity to dig in and really get our hands dirty,” he said. “It’s been a great blessing to many people,” Pass said.
