By CLAY NEELY
firstname.lastname@example.org Hundreds of hungry folks filled the Downtown Court Square last Thursday evening with the opportunity to sample a smorgasbord of
many tasty and unique offerings from around Coweta County. The Taste of Newnan Fall ’17, a fun-filled, family event that is held twice a year, hosted perfect fall weather
for those ready to browse the many options available and chow down. Crowds jammed the streets to sample “tastes” from more than 40 Newnan-Coweta food vendors.
Along with great food, participants enjoyed some entertainment during the event, with two stages featuring family-friendly, live music, and a “Kid’s Zone” along West Washington Street.
A subdivision with 365 residential lots is proposed for property on Seavy Street and Hwy. 85 in Senoia. The Keg Creek Landing development is on 248 acres currently owned by the Frances Cleveland Estate and Bray Properties, and wraps around land owned by Berti Lu Nations-Miller. The developer is Brent Holdings LLC/Brent Scarbrough. The property was zoned for a conservation subdivision several years ago, according to Community Development Director Dina Rimi, and the conceptual plat for the development went before the Senoia Planning Commission on Sept. 19. The planning commission voted 3 to 2 against approving the plat. The conceptual plat request will go before the Senoia City Council on Oct. 16. There is a proposed overall density of 1.44 units per acre, with 136.2 acres of greenspace. That greenspace includes 29 acres that could possibly be used by the city for a future sewer facility. The developers will get a density bonus for making improvements to the intersection of Seavy Street and Hwy. 85, Rimi said. The base density under the zoning district would allow

Babysitter hailed a hero by house fire victims GOFUNDME ACCOUNT SET UP TO HELP FAMILY By CLAY NEELY
A m o t h er wh o lo s t everything in a house fire said the quick thinking of her babysitter avoided a much larger tragedy. Last week, the home of Shane and Tonya Cox was destroyed after an electrical fire reportedly started in a family playroom. Babysitter Hailey A r n o ld w a s a t h o m e watch i ng 2 -yea r- old twins, Jensen and Jared, when the fire started. Arnold, 17, said she was looking for a remote at the time when the boys ran into the room, alerting her to the fire. Inside the playroom, Arnold found a mattress was on fire and immediately took the boys out of the house and unsuccessfully attempted to extinguish the fire with a hose. Arnold said she tried to call 911 with her smartphone, but didn’t have any luck. She took the boys to their great-grandparents’ house located on the property and success-
fully called 911 from their home. Just after 7:30 p.m., firefighters arrived at their Smith Road home and found heavy fire conditions through the entire top floor of the residence. Once the f ire was f i n a l ly ex t i n g u i s he d , investigators spent the next few days attempting to discover the cause of the blaze, which was later determined to be an electrical fire. Tony Cox sa id she’s incredibly grateful for Arnold’s intuition and keeping the twins out of harm's way. “She’s amazing to me in so many ways,” Cox said. “Not many people could have thought so fast, even parents.” Over the weekend, the family has spent their days sifting through the charred remains of their home – a 17-yea r-old home designed by Cox and built by her father. “We have insurance, but I never imagined having to start over from scratch,” she said.
However, wh i le t he family sorted through the ashes, many visitors stopped by to offer assistance to the family, who is currently staying with relatives. She said they’re still in shock over the ordeal and want to find a home to rent but without paying for a year-long lease. “Everyone has been so helpful,” she said. “People I have never met are stopping by to donate their time and things like gift cards for restaurants. I can’t believe how good people can be. It’s amazing to see. “I just want people to know how thankful I am for everything they’ve done a nd for a ll their prayers,” she said. “It’s devastating to lose your home, but we owe a tremendous debt to Hailey, who made sure our boys were safe.” A GoFundMe page was created for those who are interesting in helping the family rebuild and can be found at: https://www. gofundme.com/4i193ig

Community Foundation offers employee assistance programs By SARAH FAY CAMPBELL email@example.com
Local companies have the opportunity to set up “employee assistance programs” through the Coweta Com munity Foundation. The funds would help employees who are dealing with a major event that causes financial hardship, like an accident or illness, a natural disaster or even a big automobile repair bill.
“ It ’s a huge benef it to a n employee working at a corporation that has it – if you ever need it, it’s there,” said Ginger Queener, chairman of the board of the Coweta Community Foundation. Each company can tailor its fund to the compa ny ’s speci f ic needs. The foundation will manage the fund, for a small administrative fee. The foundation can also handle the application, review
and selection process for a company. The company itself, as well as vendors and customers, can contribute to the fund, and employees can contribute through payroll deductions. All contributions are tax-deductible, and the program has to follow IRS guidelines. Employe e s don’t re ceive t he funds – instead the grants go directly to pay specific bills or fund specific
needs. B e c k Fac i l it y S ervices was the first company to set up a program through the community foundation. “We see the need in our organization,” said owner Danny Beck. “We have 800 team members – we see a lot of sad stories,” he said. “Back when I started t h i s compa ny a nd we had two or three people, if somebody had a prob-
lem we would jump in and fix it,” he said. “Now we can have 50 people have a problem in a week.” When remnants of Hurricane Irma came through south Georgia, many businesses were closed, and Beck employees didn’t have buildings to clean. “Nobody could get to work. We had to kick in and raise money and help out with that situation,” Beck said. When something cata-
strophic affects a Beck employee, “our employees step up immediately. It is easy to ra ise t he money,” Beck said. But “I felt we need some type of tool where our employees can continually donate, whether it is $1 a paycheck or $5. With that many e m ploye e s , t h i s f u n d could grow into something huge.” The program is named

Technical colleges extend state’s workforce development ties with Germany students are the real winners as they benefit from such global “ Ourpartnerships and develop skills that are highly valued by our advanced manufacturers at the local and international level. ”
Courtesy of West Georgia Technical College
West Georgia Tech and Ludwig-Boelkow Vocational School/Technical College in Donauwörth last year signed a cooperation agreement allowing for student and faculty exchanges as well as other partnerships. Ludwig-Boelkow College President Winfried Schiffelholz visited West Georgia Tech in April to tour i ndustria l a nd educat ion a l resou rces and further investigate collaborations. The signing ceremony is a direct result of Gov. Nathan Deal's workforce development mission to Germany in June 2016, wh ich i ncluded attenda nce at t he Regiona l Leaders Summit, a strategic alliance of five international regions. Executives from Bavarian company Grenzebach, with operations in Newnan,were on hand to witness the signing ceremony, along with representatives from Central Educational Center in Coweta County, West Georgia Technical College, Southern Crescent Technical College and the Georgia Department of Economic Development.
MUNICH – Leaders of the Bavarian State Ministry for Education, Culture and Science and the Technical College System of Georgia have signed a memorandum of understanding that establishes a partnership giving Georgia and German students ex pa nded educat ion a l opportunities. TCSG Commissioner Gretchen Corbin a nd Georg Eisen reich, the Bavarian ministry’s State Secretary, signed t he MOU i n a re cent ceremony. West Georgia Technical College – which pioneered the nation’s first Germanstyle apprenticeship program for high school students – was represented at the signing by President Steve G. Daniel. The MOU states each party’s commitment to maximize the educational and training programs offered by vocational and technical colleges in both states to students a nd teachers. The partnership gives students and apprentices access to international science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) programs i n order to m a x i m i ze career opportunities. The MOU also establishes a framework that partners with companies to promote world-class workforce development, training, apprenticeships and related services. “ Si g n i n g t h i s MOU expands Georgia’s long-

“For we walk by faith, not by sight: We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord. Wherefore we labour, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of him. For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.” 2 Cor.5:7-10

ner companies to expand on their access to a globally skilled workforce. Pat Wilson, commissioner of t he G eorg ia Department of Economic Development, said Georgia and Bavaria have a formal diplomatic, business and educational partnership through the existing Regional Leaders Summit. “ T h i s MOU sig n i n g between Georgia's technica l colleges a nd the state of Bavaria will allow Georg ia compa n ies to access additional highly skilled and globally astute talent to work in their companies,” Wilson said. “The Georgia Department of Economic Development applauds agreements like today's as they add to the workforce development component of Georgia's economic development efforts.” Through the Georgia
Consortium of Advanced Te c h n i c a l T r a i n i n g (GACATT), West Georgia Tech partners with the Central Educational Center and eight Coweta County industrial partners to apprentice high school students in advanced manufacturing. The MOU also encourages the participants to pa r t ner i n work force development with agencies and organizations such as the Georgia Depa r tment of Education, University System of Georgia, Georgia Department of Economic Development, the Halle Found at ion , Joac h i m Her z Stiftung, Congress-Bundestag Yout h Excha nge for Young Professionals, German-American Partnership Program, and the German-American Chamber of Commerce of the South.

“Brook’s Blessings” after the family of CEO Ryan Brooks, Beck said. Grant decisions are made internally by Beck’s board, and the funds can be approved quickly. Beck said he has been thinking about this sort of program for a while, and called up Queener one day to ask her about it. Going through the community foundation was “the fastest and most efficient way to get it rolling,” he said. “Everybody’s got a giving heart – we’ve seen that over the past 25 years,” Beck said. “We’ve been doing this for years. Now we have a tool where everybody can participate and contribute.” Queener appeared at this week’s meeting of the Coweta Water and Sewerage Authority board to discuss setting up a progra m for authority employees. A f u nd t h roug h t he fou ndat ion requ i res a minimum opening balance of $5,000, and a minimum balance of $1,000. Depending on the amount of money in the fund, it is either held in cash or invested, Queener said. Employees who wish to apply for funding will fill out an extensive application, Queener said. “We would be the ones screeni ng t he application to make sure we have the appropriate documentation,” she said. “We work with your HR department and then it will go before a grants committee that meets every two weeks.” For more information, call 770-253-1833 or email info@cowetafoundation. org
partnerships we have with manufacturers operating locally in West Georgia and with the Ludwig-Boelkow Technical College in Donauwörth,” Daniel said. “These relationships help us prepare graduates who can excel in the global economy. We’re especially pleased to have the first German-style apprenticeship program in the nation locally in Coweta County. Our students are the real winners as they benefit from such global partnerships and develop skills that are highly valued by our advanced manufacturers at the local and international level.” Among the exchanges enabled by the agreement are internships, apprentice projects and traditional semester exchanges for both students and faculty. Many of these efforts are coordinated with part-
st a nd i n g rel at ion s h ip with Bavaria and formalizes an educational partnership that benefits students, faculty and partner companies in both states,” Corbin said. Eisenreich said the state of Georgia is an “important partner region” for the Free State of Bavaria. “Great contacts already exist between the states and we wish to continue to strengthen these ties,” said Eisenreich, State Secretary of the Bavarian State Ministry for Education, Culture and Science, which oversees the comprehensive education of children, youth and adult learners, including the state’s vocational schools and colleges. Daniel said it was an honor to represent West G e o r g i a Te c h a t t h e signing. “We are proud of the

My corporal, who happens to be one of my best friends, was working an accident on the shoulder of the interstate the other day. Another dear friend and co-worker of mine was working another accident about 50 yards north of my corporal in the emergency lane. I was patrolling the west side of the county. It was around 5 a.m. Hour number 11 of a 12-hour shift. I knew from the radio traffic between my corporal and my buddy they were in a bit of a pickle. T h e y we r e o n e i t h e r side of the northbound la ne work ing sepa rate accidents. I personally hate being dispatched to anything on the interstate. People don’t slow down, and they don’t move over. I can’t count the number of “burglary in progress” calls I’ve been dispatched to. I’ve responded to fights in progress, scenes with gunshot victims. I once assisted with a traffic stop
Slow down - move over
that brought one of “Alabama’s Most Wanted” into custody. I would choose any of those ca lls again over responding to anything on the interstate. I am more afraid of my job leading me to meeting my maker from being hit by a car than any other type of call. Pe ople do not slow down or move over for blue lights. Or red lights for that matter. I have been on some hot scenes with my corporal. When I say “hot scene” I mean high stress. My corporal is calm, cool and collected in the most stressful of situations. I like to think we all are. But I know he is. When I heard him come over the radio and say, “090, are you OK?,” I knew something was wrong. The tone is his voice told me that. I have heard his voice a thousand times on the radio, on every type of emergency you can imagine. This time he sounded different.
I personally hate being dispatched to anything on the interstate.
0 9 0 d i d n ’ t a n s w e r. I have hea rd different ph ra ses about si lence being deafening my whole life, but in this second I fully understood it. I heard my corporal key up the radio again. He said “I need any available units to be en route, we have had a bad accident, 090, are you ok?” I was already en route. I was en route from the second I heard him key up the radio the first time. I may have ca ncelled myself before I got there. But I
was getting en route until we knew further. Unt i l we hea rd 0 9 0 answer that he was ok. I have been scared a hundred times on my job. But I don’t think I have ever been more afraid than I was that morning, in those seconds when 090 wasn’t answering his radio. My corporal was sprinti ng up t he i nterst ate , dodging traffic four lanes of traffic, to get to 090. I k now now, 090 wasn’t a n swer i ng h is rad io because he – and the two firefighters he was standing beside – were running away from the collision that had just happened a few feet from where they were standing. I’m not a hugging type man. You can ask anyone who has ever tried to hug me. I make it awkward. I somehow tend to foul up most handshakes for that matter. Hugs are way out of my league. But as God is my witness, and my body-worn camera will confirm, as
soon as I set my eyes on 090 that morning on the interstate I hugged him. I’m sure I made it awkward. That’s my style. But I hugged him nonetheless. Slow down. Move over. Please. Wherever you are going is going to be there
when you get there. No one wakes up in the morning and plans to have an accident in order to inconvenience your commute. Tob y N i x i s a lo ca l writer, guitarist and deputy sheriff.

223 lots on the property. The density bonus allows for an additional 133 lots, according to information on the conceptual plat. The planning department and planning commission are asking that the developers do a traffic study on the property prior to submitting a preliminary plat, which is the second step in the platting process. Typically the traffic study is done with the construction plat, which is step three. The conceptual plat shows the development divided into four pods. Pod A shows smaller homes designed for senior living, with 106 homes on lots 50 feet wide and 125 feet deep. Pod B would have 79 homes on 80 by 136-foot lots. Pod C shows 135 homes on 80 by 136-foot lots, and Pod D would have 36 homes on 90 by 125foot lots.
