PINE MOUNTAIN VALLEY –
Life has begun to return to normal for the Williams family – for
the second time this year.
“It had calmed down, then the
show aired and it blew up
again,” said Jeremy Wiliams.
Jeremy, Jennifer, Josie and
Jacob Williams had their lives
turned upside down, in the best
way imaginable, when a crew
from ABC’s “Extreme Makeover:
Home Edition” showed up at
their house late in February.
They weren’t allowed to discuss
much about the house until the
show aired May 16, which
means the family just now can
begin to talk in detail about the
show and their experiences.
Jennifer Williams admits to
still being in the process of discovering some of those details
herself. The family can see out
into the patio because two large
glass bay doors open, one from
the living room and one from
Jacob Williams’ therapy room.
But just the other day, Jennifer
Williams discovered a plant outside she hadn’t known was
there. The television blocked the
view. And a recent visitor pointed out the front yard landscaping includes a small fence that is
shaped like a W in honor of the
family.
“I love hearing the stories
about what went on and what
went into the house,” Jennifer
Williams said. “I’m sure there’s
some stories I’ll never know.”
The Williamses were whisked
away on a Colorado vacation
shortly after the television crews
showed up and kept in an information vacuum until they
returned a week later, so there
likely are still many stories to
hear and discoveries to make on
their Harris County property.
One thing, however, is not a
mystery.
“This house was a total blessing,” Jennifer Williams said.
High school sweethearts, Jeremy and Jennifer bought their
first house on the property about
13 years ago and say they’d
Jennifer Williams has made a game of finding things around
the house since the family’s house was revealed in late February. She didn’t realize until recently the living room television
concealed a shrub outside.
Seven community agencies have
made funding requests to the
Troup County Commission for the
first time, although “they’ve
already been told there’s no money
available” in fiscal 2011 beginning
July 1, County Manager Mike
Dobbs said Friday.
He said they’re getting in line for
the following year.
The requests, presented at a
commission meeting Friday, included:
■ $25,000 for the Boys & Girls
Club of West Georgia;
■ $20,000 for Troup Cares,
which provides health care for
uninsured or underinsured workers;
■ $18,000 for the LaGrange Art
Museum;
■ $17,500 for Troup Alive &
Green;
■ $10,000 for Emmaus House,
which operates emergency and
long-term shelters for homeless
women and children;
■ up to $3,000 for the Downtown
LaGrange Development Authority;
and
■ an unspecified amount for
Troup BELL (Building Early Learning for Life).
Keenan Knight, board chairman
of the Boys & Girls Club, and club
Director Dexter Davis said their
organization can help reverse the
county’s high crime, dropout and
teen pregnancy rates.
“The Boys and Girls Club breaks
this cycle,” Knight said, noting that
one in 13 Georgians is either in
prison, on probation or on parole.
“That’s why I believe in it.”
The Emmaus House, which got
under way in January, provides
“opportunities and guidance” for
homeless women, helping them get
GEDs, even birth certificates and
Social Security numbers, said
founder and Executive Director
Kay Elam.
“We’re giving women a foundation that has been ripped out from
under them,” she said.
The LaGrange Art Museum is
known as one of the best regional
museums in the Southeast, said

else. Circumstances, though,
were making it harder to keep
living well in their old house.
Son Jacob, now 7, was born with
spina bifida and doesn’t have the
use of his legs. Jeremy Williams
was diagnosed with ALS two
years ago; his speech and mobility already are affected.

This shadowbox, a tribute to Jeremy Williams’ football days and
the couple’s time together, was one of the last things to be
moved in the house. It’s in the living room.
Words of encouragement were
left in Jeremy Williams’ therapy room, among them ‘Love
your family’ and ‘Become
mayor.’
It was Jennifer Williams’ tight
circle of girlfriends who kept
nagging her to apply to the TV
show.
“Every month, they’d bring me
an application, and every month
I’d quietly go throw it away,” she
said. “I just didn’t know if (having a new house) was part of
God’s plan for us.”
Finally, an advertisement
appeared in a local paper saying
the show was looking for a Georgia family. Her friends took
another application to Jennifer
Williams – and told her to pray
about it. She did, and she reluctantly filled it out in October
2008.
“We were right at the point
where we were going to have to
start making some changes,” she
said. “We were just going to
build some wheelchair ramps
and modify what we had.”
Then the show’s boisterous
team leader, Ty Pennington,
showed up at their door for the
life-changing event. Since the
show aired, people tease Jennifer Williams for doing all that

From staff reports
West Georgia Medical Center are
getting ready to officially open its
new South Tower for patient care
on Tuesday.
The 130,000-square-foot tower,
which faces the back side of the
medical park, is the new home of
the Heart Clinic, emergency
department, intensive-care unit,
mother/baby unit, “Expressions
from the Heart Gift Shop” and coffee shop, “The Retreat” coffee
shop, as well as the new main
entrance and lobby.
The changes also mean that,
beginning Tuesday, visitors will
enter the medical center through
the front entrance of South Tower,
just southwest of the current
entrance. The current front
entrance will be used for physician
and staff access only. Visitor parking will be located near the front
entrance of South Tower.
Patients, families and visitors will
have access to the new front
entrance from Vernon Street or
Vernon Road by taking Medical
Parkway to Doctors Drive. This will
take patients and visitors directly
to the new front entrance and
emergency department.
A loop road that connects Vernon
Street and Vernon Road to Doctors
Drive will take patients and visitors
to other locations throughout West
Georgia Health’s main campus.

Woman OK after
tree falls on house
By Becky Holland
Lifestyle editor
Though gray clouds
gave a hint of a potential
storm, the weather was
not the cause when a large
oak tree fell across the
roof of the home of
Frances Webb, 95, Friday
afternoon.
Her sons, Larry and
Jerry Webb, and others
surveying the damage
blame the way that the
tree was rooted.
Jerry Webb stood on the
sidewalk in front of his
mother’s home and shook
his head.
“I knew that tree was
going to go one day. We
told them that,” he said.
He said his mother was
sitting in the den when the
tree fell, and neighbors
helped her out. He pointed out that the tree, which
caused severe damage to
the den, a bathroom and
garage, was actually in the
yard of a neighbors’ home
behind his mother’s. “I
don’t think anyone lives
there right now.”
“That tree’s roots were
not in a good spot, and it
is so heavy. That tree was
probably as round as a car
at the base.”

“I was at our hunting

Jerry Webb said, “She

He paused, looking at
the debris all across her
front yard, and said. “And
she just got her yard done
and shrubbery cut.”
Frances Webb recalled
the incident.
“I was sitting in the den,
at the window box. My
glasses were on the window box, and I remember
looking out and saw it

for my glasses and just

I. The name Memorial Day
was first used in 1882. It
did not become more
common until after World
War II and was not
declared the official name
by federal law until 1967.

Wife and husband need more
Dear Annie: My wife
sleeps with our 9-year-old
daughter, “Alexis.” This
started shortly after Alexis’ birth and continues to
this day. At the same time,
my wife complains bitterly
about our lack of emotional and physical closeness. My response is that
I’m always available
upstairs — alone.
I have tried over the
years to coax her back into
our bedroom using a combination of the carrot and
the stick, but nothing
seems to work.
I often tell her that sleeping with our child is a symbol of our apartness.
Nonetheless, she has
made it clear that she
enjoys sleeping with our
daughter and prefers it to
sleeping with me. She has
chosen her child over her
husband.
Please publish my letter
so my wife will see it and
hopefully change her priorities. I’ve tried everything else and don’t know
what more I can do.– Indy
Dear
Indy:
Some
women use their children
as an excuse to avoid the
marital bed. The repercussions not only damage
the marriage, but also the
child.
And at this point, Alexis
will make it extremely difficult to change the sleeping arrangements, which
will only make your wife
more likely to maintain the
status quo.
She needs to stop, and it
will help if she understands and faces her reasons. Please get into counseling, preferably together, and work on this.

and see all there is.
We have now seen most
of the sights several times,
and the cost of doing so
runs into quite a bit of
money.
We don’t want to be
rude and send them alone,
but neither are we interested in seeing things
again and again.
What is the right thing
to do? Would it be OK to
let them go without us?–
To Go or Not To Go
Dear To Go: By all
means. It is perfectly fine
to tell your houseguests
that they should enjoy
their time on their own.

what to see and how to get
there, and then perhaps
join them later for dinner.

Mama, I just can’t
believe it’s been 3 years
since you went to be
with Jesus. I feel like it
was only yesterday. I
can’t began to tell you
how much I miss you.
Everyday I see, and do
things that remind me
so much of you. And I’m
so proud, when people
tell me I favor you so
much now. I hope my
behavior in life has
made you and Daddy
proud. So many of my
decisions in life are
based on the love and
leadership you gave me.
You gave me so many
things thru life, that I
appreciate and treasure.
And your guidance from
heaven inspires me
when I’m down. If my
tears could build a
stairway and my
memory build a lane,
Buf and I would walk
right up to Heaven and
bring you home with us.
But for now, we’ll hold
on to our memories and
the many blessings from
the Lord. But never
forget we love you very
much, and we’re always
just a heart beat away.
Love and miss you

Memory is life’s sweetest gift
Please God forgive our
silent tears
Our sincere wish is that our
Mama was here
There are others, yes
we know
But she was ours
we loved her so
A million times we’ve
needed you
A million times we cried
If love could have saved you
Mama, you would still
be with us,
You and daddy both.
Your memories are
alive and well
We speak your name
every day
There is not a day that
goes by that we do not
think of you.
It has been 2 years since God
took you home,
But in our hearts you
live on.
If we had all the world
to give,
We’d give it and more
to hear your voice and
see your smile
It’s lonely here without you,
we miss you more each day
For life is not the same to us
since you were called away
To your resting place we
visit, place flowers there with
care, but no one knows our
heartache when we turn
and leave you there.
To our mama in
heaven above
We miss you and send you
all our love.

on Her Birthday

Her Journey’s
Just Begun
Her journey’s just
begun
Don’t think of her as
gone away, her
journey’s just begun,
Life holds so many
facets, this earth is
only one,
Just think of her as
resting, from the
sorrows and the
tears, in a place of
warmth and
comfort,
where there are no
days or years,
Think how she must
be wishing that we
could know today,
How nothing but our
sadness, can really
pass away,
And think of her as
living, in the hearts of
those she touched,
For nothing loved is
ever lost, and she
was loved so much.
Happy Birthday
Mama,
Love your Children

Dear Annie: I feel compelled to write after reading the letter from “Confused in Illinois,” whose
husband has started working out in the nude in front
of their 12-year-old daughter.
I realize there is probably nothing going on that
is immoral, but as an educator and mother of three
daughters, I am concerned.
Working out in the nude
in front of your child is
wrong. I would never even
consider doing this in front
of my own daughters.
Why is he now so interested in the workout
process, and why is the
daughter only involved
when nudity is a part of
the equation? A small pair
of shorts, even underwear,
would not impede his
movement.
The daughter needs to
know this is not “normal”
behavior. It is a form of
exhibitionism, and she
may have problems dealing with this in the future.
Innocent or not, as parents
we have to make decisions
that are in the best interests of our children.
The writer said they are
not prudes, but the fact
that she is questioning the
behavior says it all.
I go back to the advice
of my grandmother: “If
something feels wrong, it
probably is.” – Concerned
Mother
Dear Concerned: You
make an excellent point
that if the nudity is making Mom uncomfortable,
there could be an underlying reason, and she should
not be reluctant to tell Dad
to put some shorts on.

Dear Annie: A few years
ago, my husband and I
purchased a townhouse in
Arizona and now spend
every
winter
there.
Between family and
friends, we have quite a bit
of company.
The problem is, there is
a lot to do and see here,
and everybody wants to do

Grants aim to save
rare bog turtles
MILLBROOK,
N.Y.
(AP) — The federal government
is
giving
landowners money to
protect a rare and tiny
turtle that’s losing habitat throughout its range
from Georgia to southern
New England.
The bog turtle, a secretive reptile the size of a
hockey puck, favors
sunny, spring-fed bogs
and marshy meadows.
It’s threatened by poaching and habitat loss.
There are an estimated
10,000 to 13,000 bog tur-
tles in the Northeast, and
4,000 to 6,000 in a swatch
of Appalachians from Virginia to Georgia.
About 95 percent of
bog turtle habitat is on
private land. That’s why
New York’s Department
of Environmental Conservation started a program this spring to preserve and improve turtle
habitat with grants and
guidance through the federal Landowner Incentive
Program.
The application deadline is July 1.
Committees At Work –
The movement to build an
auditorium in LaGrange is
developing into earnest
effort on the part of those
behind it. The committees
appointed recently are
actively at work, and it
now seems that it will not
be many days before
something definite will be
reported and acted upon.
Someday, LaGrange will
wake up – we may not live
to see it – but enough new
blood will creep in to convince the sleepers over
their hoarded gains of a
bygone age that it is time
to have some civic pride.
We have not lost hope, for
the present interest in the
auditorium movement has
shown that we are partially awake and alive to the
needs of the future.
Our Post Office Building – In a private letter to
a citizen of LaGrange,
Congressman W.C. Adamson states that he has succeeded in obtaining
$10,000 more for the new
post office building in
LaGrange and that it will
be built within the next 12
months. This makes
$60,000 for the building.
Mr. Adamson is confident
that more will be appropriated if necessary, giving LaGrange as fine a
building as any other city
with the same postal
receipts. The contract
should be let this summer.
To Get Union Depot –
The Reporter is reliably
informed that the Atlanta
and West Point and the
A.B. & A. railroads have
about arrived at an understanding as to the proposed union passenger
station in LaGrange. Neither of the roads has anything like adequate
accommodations for a
town of the size and
importance of LaGrange,
and it is now only necessary to get together on the
location and place, etc.
Steam Laundry To
Open – Arrangements are
being completed for the
establishment of a firstclass modern steam laundry in LaGrange. It is to be
run in connection with the
LaGrange Ice & Fuel
Company’s plant, but full
details of the plans are not
ready to be given at this
time. There is no reason
why a good laundry
should not pay in
LaGrange, and especially
when run in connection
with a business like the ice
plant.
Attention Ladies – If a
young lady will take a
course of shorthand in
Southern Business College of Atlanta, she will be
independent; she need not
marry unless she wants it
and if she does marry, she
can support her husband.

Mrs. Pope Callaway’s
Trip Around the World.
We take up with her
visit to Tokio – “We were
entertained and honored
every minute of our stay
in Tokio, and to the last
minute it. It is a grand city
and yet perhaps more like
the Japan of old than any
other city in the Empire.
“The beautiful party
they had for use at the
Imperial Hotel was
impressive – a real compliment to a nation from a
nation. Every embassy
and legation in Tokio was
represented, and the
tourists and residents mingled like long time friends.
“We went by rail from
Tokio to Nikko, the
tourists’ haven. We were
met at the station by waving flags from all nations
– our own flag being most
prominent and most
numerous. In Nikko we
visited the Shinto Temple
of the first shogun, where
we saw many relics of the
shoguns, and presents
received from sovereigns
of foreign countries. There
is a perfect forest of temples gilded with pure gold
alight with every color of
the rainbow. There are
lacquered pagodas taller
than the trees and huge
bells whose solemn tones
reverberated over sacred
mountain. Language is
powerless to portray the
grand impressiveness of
Nikko.”
In describing Mrs. Callaway’s days in Japan, she
recorded visited to Kobe,
important port city open to
trade since 1863; to Osaka,
birthplace of the first
shogun, where they saw a
700 year-old castle he had
built; to Kioto, noted for its
manufacture of porcelain
and for centuries the residence of the Mikado,
where they were given permission to visit two imperial palaces; and finally to
Nagasaki, “to coal the
ship” for their departure.
During the entire visit to
Japan, Mrs. Callaway
wrote, “The enthusiasm of
these people over the presence of so many Americans on their shores has
not abated one whit.
Quaint, dear little people,
beautiful land, beautiful
things everywhere and the
crowning thing here is the
great number of rosy children and babies, always
smiling.”

Spending stalls
in April
ATLANTA (AP) – A soldier reported being
robbed of his military
assault rifle while he was
home on leave.
The unidentified soldier
said he was sitting in a car
with his cousin last weekend when seven men
approached, opened the
door and grabbed his rifle.
The soldier said he was
punched, kicked and hit in
the head with a bottle
when he tried to retrieve
his weapon.
He was not in uniform
at the time the robbery
took place.
Jury clears
teacher
JONESBORO (AP) – A
Clayton County grand
jury declined to indict a
teacher who was fired
after being accused of
threatening to a student.
The teacher, Randolph
Forde, 34, was arrested in
October on a charge of
making terroristic threats
and was fired after a
school system investigation. Forde said the grand
jury’s finding on Wednesday that there was no
probable cause to believe
a crime occurred is a
relief.
He said the 11th-grader
at Mundy’s Mill High
School made up accusations, including that Forde
offered a classmate $50 to
“put a hit” on him.
He claims the student
was retaliating for Forde
pulling him out of class.
Benefits
extended
WASHINGTON (AP) —
The House on Friday
voted to extend unemployment benefits to people mired in joblessness
but cut off help with
health insurance for the
newly
unemployed.
Money to assist with
health insurance was
among the tens of billions
of dollars trimmed from
programs introduced in
last year’s economic stimulus bill.
The 215-204 vote to
approve the measure
capped a turbulent week
for Democratic leaders,
who were forced by party
moderates and conservatives unhappy with continued deficit spending to
kill $24 billion in aid to
cash-starved states and $7
billion for health insurance subsidies for laid-off
workers.

Eugene Heyward is the father of Braves rookie Jason Heyward. Heyward said
that despite his son’s well-publicized success in his first major-league season, he is still very much a kid.
Macon Telegraph
Dad talks about
raising Braves star
MACON (AP) – Eugene
Heyward’s commute to his
job at Robins Air Force
Base is enough to make
any observer wince.
His alarm clock is set for
3 a.m. He drives 76 miles
from his home in McDonough – about 80 minutes,
depending on traffic – to
get to the base, usually
before 6 a.m. Even more
remarkable: Heyward has
been doing this for about
18 years. As of this week,
his Chevy Suburban had
traveled 298,061 miles
These days, his return
commute often goes past
McDonough into Atlanta
to watch his son play baseball.
Heyward is an engineer
who works on electronic
warfare programs for the
402nd Software Maintenance Group. His son is
Atlanta Braves rookie phenomenon Jason Heyward.
Heading into the Braves’
weekend series against
Pittsburgh, Jason Heyward was batting .276
with eight home runs and
30 RBI.
Life for the Heyward
family has changed significantly since opening day.
“It’s a blur, almost,”
Eugene Heyward said of
his son’s recent success.
“It’s hard to believe.”
It is not difficult to trace
Heyward’s athletic ability
and baseball skill. Eugene
played college basketball
at Dartmouth College during the late 1970s and
1980s.
However, “Baseball was
my first love,” he said. “We
have a slogan: This family takes a break for baseball.”‘
The Heywards took
plenty of breaks for baseball while Jason was
growing up. His father
introduced him to the
sport as a way to keep him
occupied during the summer months, and raced
back to McDonough after
work to coach Little
League.
“The reason we bought
this car is because I needed transportation for all of
his teammates,” Eugene
Heyward said, slapping
the driver’s side door.
Not long after Jason
picked up a bat for the first
time, it became apparent
that the sport was bound
to be more than a summer
hobby. When a Braves
scout saw him play at age
10, he told Eugene that
Jason was going to play in
the majors. The team
scouted him through high
school, when he grew into
his current 6-foot-5-inch,
240-pound frame.
With the 14th overall
pick in the 2007 baseball
draft, the Braves made
sure to keep Heyward in
his home state.
His introduction to the
big leagues came on April
5, when in his first at bat,
he launched a pitch from
Chicago Cubs’ ace Carlos
Zambrano deep toward
Marietta for a three-run
homer. Heyward is the
early favorite for this
year’s National League
Rookie of the Year award,
and he named the National League Rookie of the
Month award in April.
For 20-year-old Jason
Heyward, going out in
public is no longer as easy
as it once was.
“He needs to learn, and
we need to learn,” his
father said of Jason’s
fame.
Indeed, Heyward Mania
has swept the entire family into the public eye. During spring training,
Eugene Heyward stopped
alongside the Florida
Turnpike and was recognized by a group of baseball fans as the father of
the Braves’ outfielder.
At Robins, however, he
is just one of thousands of
civilian employees. Some
of his co-workers didn’t
even know about his 152mile round trip commute
until recently, he said.
“I appreciate everything
my parents have done for
me,” Jason Heyward said
in response to an e-mailed
question. “I’m not sure
how they did it, but I
appreciate all the personal
sacrifices they’ve made for
me.”
Residents ask for promised
improvements on Ga. 316
ATHENS AP) – The
state Department of Transportation should build
long-promised
interchanges that would eliminate dangerous intersections on Ga. 316, northeast residents said.
The Athens-to-Atlanta
corridor was planned as a
limited-access highway
with overpasses and
ramps in Gwinnett County in the late 1960s. The
majority of the highway
was built with crossroads
controlled by stop signs
and traffic signals in the
1970s because of financial
constraints.
More than 125 drivers
have joined a Facebook
page demanding that DOT
officials get to work on the
interchanges. About two
dozen have signed an
online petition.
“We need them to start
breaking ground on the
plans they’ve had for the
last 20 years,” said Jefferson Taffet of Athens. “It’s
always been a hot topic for
discussions – but that’s all
it’s been, is discussion. We
need to see actions.”
In the five years after the
final leg of the road was
completed in 1995, 41 people died on the road,
according numbers provided by the DOT.
GRAND ISLE, La. (AP)
– Intent on showing firm
command of a deepening
Gulf Coast crisis, President Obama inspected a
fouled beach, took in what
he called “heartbreaking
stories” of the catastrophe
and declared “we’re going
to keep at it” until the
America’s largest-ever oil
spill is stopped and
cleaned up.
“It’s an assault on our
shores, on our people, on
the regional economy and
on communities like this
one,” said Obama, from
this small barrier island
town south of New
Orleans that is threatened
by the massive oil leak.
“People are watching their
livelihoods wash up on the
beach.”
With more than 20,000
people already in the
region working to contain
and clean up the stillgushing crude, Obama
announced he was tripling
the manpower in places
where oil has washed
ashore or is about to.
“This is our highest priority and it deserves a
response that is equal to
the task,” he said at a
shoreside podium in front
of a stretch of sparkling
blue, unmarred water.
Before he spoke, dolphins
and fish could be seen
gliding through the water
and seabirds frequently
fluttered past.
Obama made a promise
to coast residents reminiscent of previous presidents speaking after disasters – such as George W.
Bush after Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
“I’m here to tell you that
you are not alone, you will
not be abandoned, you
will not be left behind,”
Obama said. “The media
may get tired of the story,
but we will not. We will be
on your side and we will
see this through.”
He came armed with
specific advice for beleaguered locals and the concerned U.S. public.
Acknowledging that
storm-battered coastal
states have “weathered
your fair share of trials and
tragedy,” he directed those
in the region who are filing claims for damages to
count on the government
– state and federal – to
help cut any red tape.
To the public at large, he
pleaded for volunteers to
join the cleanup effort and
for tourists to spend
money along the majority
of the region’s coastline
that is untouched by the
spill.
“One of the most powerful ways you can help
the Gulf right now is to
visit the coast,” the president said. With the exception of three Louisiana
beaches, “all the Gulf ’s
beaches are open, and
they are safe, and they are
clean.”
‘Diff ’rent Strokes’
star, 42, dies
PROVO, Utah (AP) –
Gary Coleman, the child
star of the smash 1970s TV
sitcom “Diff’rent Strokes”
whose later career was
marred by
medical
and legal
problems,
died after
suffering
an intercranial
hemorrhage. He
Coleman
was 42.
Utah Valley Regional
Medical Center spokeswoman Janet Frank said
life support was terminated and Coleman died at
12:05 p.m. Friday.
Coleman, with his
sparkling eyes and perfect
comic timing, became a
star after “Diff ’rent
Strokes” debuted in 1978.
He played the younger
brother in a pair of black
siblings adopted by a
wealthy white man.
His popularity faded
when the show ended
after six seasons on NBC
and two on ABC.
Coleman suffered continuing ill health from the
kidney disease that stunted his growth and had a
host of legal problems in
recent years.
Coleman suffered the
hemorrhage Wednesday at
his Santaquin home, 55
miles south of Salt Lake
City.
He was conscious and
lucid until midday Thursday, when his condition
worsened and he slipped
into unconsciousness.
Coleman was then placed
on life support.
Diff ’rent
Strokes”
debuted on NBC in 1978
drew most of its laughs
from the tiny, 10-year-old
Coleman.
Race and class relations
became topics on the
show as much as the typical trials of growing up.
Coleman was an immediate star, and his skeptical “Whatchu talkin’
‘bout?” – usually aimed at
his brother, Willis –
became a catchphrase.

Obama: ‘You
are not alone’
■ In brief
WASHINGTON (AP) –
Consumers don’t appear
confident enough in the
economy to open their
wallets more freely.
Their spending stalled
in April. Without stronger
job creation and higher
pay, people are less likely
to up their spending in the
months ahead and invigorate the recovery.
The flat level for consumer spending was the
weakest showing in seven
months, according to the
Commerce Department
report. Personal incomes
rose 0.4 percent, in line
with expectations but not
fast enough to help generate real growth.

Chickens don’t appreciate rainy night heroics
Last week Hubby and I purchased a
new pen for our pretty little Serama
chickens. We were excited about their
new, luxurious digs, but they were not
impressed. They sat huddled in the pen,
even after dark, not making a move
toward their sweet little watertight coop
on the other side of the pen. We checked
on them throughout the evening, and
they never moved a muscle. Finally,
Hubby gave up and went to bed, so I was
alone in the den when it started to rain.
I tried to ignore their discomfort. I told
myself that it was warm outside, and a
little water never hurt anybody, and if
they were dumb enough to stay out in
the rain when there was a perfectly comfortable house two feet away, what could
I do? But then the thunder started, and
the rain went from a spring shower to a
downpour, and I decided to put the chickens in their coop.
I was dressed for bed, in a huge wornout old T-shirt and my drawers, but it was
after 11, and the neighborhood was
asleep, so after a moment’s thought I
turned off the back yard light, opened
the door and headed out to rescue my
soggy babies.

of LaGrange spends
her days framing other
people’s art and her
nights lost in the beauty
of words.
The enclosure is made of three 2-foot
cubes, all in a line, with the coop at one
end. The coop and first section of run
have snap-off tops, allowing access for
feeding and egg gathering. I figured that
I’d just reach in and shoo Rosemary and
Basil back to the warm, dry coop, and be
back inside before I had a chance to get
wet or flash any insomniac neighbors.
The chickens had other ideas. The
same silly Seramas who’d been paralyzed with fear seconds earlier ran like
roadrunners, right to the far side of the
cage, just out of my reach. I stood up,
arms akimbo, and surveyed the situation,
which was this – I was rapidly getting
soaked, my purple-striped drawers were
not providing much insulation from the
chill in the air and the stupid birds were
not coming any closer.
I sighed, pushed my dripping hair out
of my eyes and climbed into the pen. I
stepped in, bent down, dropped to my
knees and got everything in. Well, everything except the purple-striped end; it
was sticking out of the door.
You haven’t lived until you’ve come
eyeball to eyeball with a wet angry rooster. I reached out for Basil, planning to
scoop him underneath me, pass him
between my knees and deposit him in
the coop. I knew that Rosemary would
follow on her own if I got her fellow to
go first.
Snap! His sharp little beak barely
missed my hand. Bravely, I tried again,
and again, he stayed out of my reach and
craned his neck, trying to peck my hand.
Things got a little hairy on the third try,
because Basil not only stood his ground,
he advanced threateningly.
I tried to back out, but discovered that
I was wedged in, with my feet against the
coop and my front end way too close to
the sharp parts of the rooster. I couldn’t
get enough leverage to scoot myself back
out the door. I looked at Basil, and he
glared back, wings out and beak open,
daring me to move a muscle.
I was stuck. Hubby was asleep, and I
couldn’t yell for help because, really, I
wasn’t ready to face the crowd that
would surely gather, umbrellas up, pointing and laughing and drinking coffee. I
sighed, resigned to spending the night in
the chicken pen, getting pneumonia that
wouldn’t kill me because I’d already be
pecked to death.
A giant clap of thunder renewed my
escape efforts, and I managed to pop my
tail out of the cage door. Thrilled, I
walked my hands and feet together until
I was an inverted V. There was one more
moment of panic when I couldn’t figure
out whether to stand up or step out first,
but finally I got my head out and then I
was free. I mustered what little dignity I
had left, wrung out my dripping night
clothes, gestured rudely at the chickens,
and went inside to change and go to bed.
The next morning, shaken and weak
from my ordeal, I ventured out, fully
clothed, to see how the birds had fared.
They were soaked but fine, until they saw
me. They squawked and ran in circles,
then streaked straight into the coop,
where they stayed for the rest of the day.

Christianity
played role in
U.S. creation
Dear Editor:
A recent letter expressing certainty that “the government of the United States of America is not, in any
sense, founded on the Christian religion,” and the writer’s judgement
that the teabaggers find that difficult
to understand, convinces this Christian that it is the writer of that letter
who does not understand.
Remember, he said, “in any sense.”
His last sentence “instead of trying to distort the facts, the teabaggers should thank the wisdom of our
founders for our wonderful freedoms.” I’m sure they are thankful,
as all should be.
But we must all also accept that
truth that our freedoms come from
God, who has allowed us to have
laws to live by (all of which have
been given us in our Constitution
and Bill of Rights) written and fought
for by our founding fathers, whose
families came to America for religious freedom.
God has also given each of us freedom of choice to obey, question or
disobey these laws. We should thank
God for instilling in our founding
fathers the wisdom to produced a
Constitution that has guaranteed our
freedoms, including the one giving
us the right to express our opinions
in this newspaper.
No person, government or religion
on this earth is perfect. If someone
wants to believe our nation was not
founded on Christian laws and principles, he or she has that right, but
please don’t try to convince others
with incomplete arguments, halftruths and verbal abuse.
Space dos not allow me to present
here the volume of evidence found
in our nation’s capital city to support
the statement that our national was
founded on religious principals. Take
just one building – the Supreme
Court building, where a visitor can
see Moses with the Ten Commandments, a marble sculpture of
Mohammad and a sculpture of Confucius.
Christianity has consistently been
the majority religion in LaGrange,
Troup County, Georgia and the United States. This does not mean the
people of their religious faiths, or of
no faith at all are excluded as citizens.
No one should try to read out of
American history the important role
played by her religious faith to the
founding settlement and life of our
nation through out the years.
It is incumbent upon us a citizen
of this great nation to be able to
know what we believe and to defend
it when it is attacked.

What do Tea

Dear Editor:
The Tea Partiers say they don’t like
what the progressive movement has

talking about? Are they talking about
public education, or women’s right
to vote, or Social Security, or unemployment compensation, or rural
electrification, or the 40-hour work

They really would be out with their

Open letter to Lorena’s
quads: Tell me it ain’t so
Dear Austin, Grant, Lexi and
Candice,
Excuse me? Did somebody
say that you four are graduating high school? No, that can’t
be true. Not when you’re still
11, 12 at the max. You were
born in 1991, October 3, and
this is only 2010. That would
make you … let’s see, take 10
minus 2, carry the 1 … yep,
that’d make you 11 going on 12.
Do the math.
Ah, don’t you remember? You
four butterflies just left the
kindergarten cocoon a few
years ago. I know because
Rachel and Mal and the amazing blonde and all of our friends
were there to celebrate. I even
wrote a story in my book about
y’all walking across the stage
and singing “I believe I can fly”
with such vigor and enthusiasm
that your little feet raised slightly off the ground. That was the
same year Mal graduated high
school. Look it up. It’s all in the
book. That couldn’t be 12 years
ago. Nah, I’d say two, or three
at the most.
Besides all of that, y’all
haven’t changed a bit. Wouldn’t
you have to change to be high
school seniors?
Just the other day we were in
Barnes and Noble, and Grant
found the one book in the
whole store that was equipped
with a microphone, and he did
his best Elvis impersonation
right there to the entertainment
of all the patrons in the store.
Excuse me, I didn’t hear what
you said.
Oh, you say that was at least
eight years ago? No, you’re
wrong. Had to be last summer
or the summer before. And

you’ll remember that as we
were riding home – not more
than a mile from your house –
y’all busted out in song in the
best four-part harmony that I’ve
ever heard. It was like having
four angels lift me up and take
me away. Y’all weren’t any
more than 9 then, and that was
only a couple of years ago.
Another reason I know you
can’t really be 18 is because
you, Candice, are the same
sweet, loving little girl you’ve
always been. You were always
holding hands and hugging
back when you were small. And
when I saw you up here in Dallas just a few days ago, you
came by and gave me that great
smile and hug like you’ve
always done. The only difference between then and now is
that I did notice that you were
sitting by a boy at church, and
you may have been wearing a
tinsy-insy bit of makeup. But
you could do that at 11, maybe
12. And it was all harmless,
because I went by and made
sure there were three songbooks, length-wise, between
you and that boy Travis.
And, Lexi, you were there,
too, you and your million-dollar smile. You flashed that same
smile you’ve been flashing
around since 1991 – well,
maybe 1993, since that’s when
your teeth came in. You did kid
me and say you were graduating, but when I laughed and
said I liked that joke, you gave
me that crazy laugh of yours.
That laugh can’t be more than
12 years old. Sorry, I’m not buying any of this 18 business.
And, Austin, it’s true we’ve
talked on the phone a great deal
about your basketball season
this year. Our teams even
played each other in a warm-up
game before the play-offs. So
that might suggest that you
really are pushing 18. But you
have to remember that your
dad and I have been teaching
you how to play basketball
since the day you were born.
Plus you attended basketball
camp at every school I’ve ever
been at.
So it’s not that you’re 18. It’s
just that you’re a basketball
phenom who got a chance to
play on the Lorena Leopard varsity team as a sixth-grader.
Man, I sure was proud of you
when I saw you dressed in that
red and white, even if you were
the only one on the court who
wasn’t shaving yet.
With all that said, the amazing blonde and I do have an
invitation to see you quads
graduate on Friday night at the
Ferrell Center in Waco. And I’m
looking forward to being there.
I’m going to hoop and holler
and tell you I love you loudly
enough for everybody in the
whole arena to hear me. But
why not! It’s not every day four
butterflies graduate from the
sixth grade.
(Thanks, little ones, for the
fond memories and the special
bond. – Steve)

Gov. Sonny Perdue’s decision to bypass Attorney General Thurbert Baker to seek
federal court approval of
Georgia’s voter verification
law is the right call.
Because the U.S. Department of Justice has continually moved the goal posts on
pre-approval of the law, it is
obvious Georgia was never
going to receive the executive
branch’s OK. That’s even
though, for two years, Peach
State officials amended the
plan according to the Justice
Department’s advice.
Because Georgia and other
states had a history of voter
discrimination, the Voting
Rights Act gave the Justice
Department the power to nix
any election law in the affected states enacted without
prior federal approval.
But another measure, the
Help America Vote Act of
2002, requires states to verify
a person’s identity before registering them to vote. Georgia
law satisfies that requirement
by matching the applicant’s
first and last names, date of
birth, driver’s license number
and the last four digits of his
Social Security number with
details on file with the state
Department of Driver Services and the Social Security
Administration.
In addition, the state law
requires new registrants to
submit proof of U.S. citizenship, via driver’s license, birth
certificate, passport, U.S. naturalization documents or
alien registration number or
other documents.
This measure mirrors a law
in Arizona which did receive
Justice Department pre-clearance. But in February, the
Department of Justice
refused to clear the Georgia
law, claiming to need more
information. Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp said
that after years of back-andforth, the department already
had the information it needed to make a determination.
Incredibly, the Justice
Department forestalled all
aspects of the law – even
those mandated specifically
by Congress – because it felt
winnowing out illegal immigrants was too great a burden
on the electorate, especially
minorities.
The courts disagree. In fact,
two federal courts instructed
Georgia to use the procedures for the 2008 general
election (which saw record
minority registration and
turnout).
The previous court rulings
bode well for Georgia’s
chances of winning final
clearance for the law. That’s
what makes Attorney General (and gubernatorial candidate) Baker’s decision not to
buck the Justice Department
curious.
With luck, the judicial
branch will again confirm the
constitutionality of Georgia’s
voter verification law and get
on with the business of keeping Georgia elections free and
fair.

Pretty Products plans
recyclable floor mats

Restaurant opens on Bull Street
David and Ginger Rider cut the ribbon for the Bull Street Grille at 116 Bull St.
in LaGrange. The couple had a restaurant in Warm Springs but said they decided downtown LaGrange would be a prime location. It is open for breakfast
and lunch Mondays through Saturdays and for dinner on Thursday, Friday
and Saturday nights. The website is www.bullstreetgrille.com. Takeout orders
may be placed by calling (706) 845-8300. The Riders also do catering and
can host small meetings or events on site. Assisting with the ribbon cutting
were officials from the LaGrange-Troup County Chamber of Commerce and the
Downtown LaGrange Development Authority.
WGH aids college with donation for simulator

Pretty Products in
LaGrange plans to go
green with 100 percent
recyclable floor mats for
the automotive industry.
The 81-year-old company formerly made a rubber-based mat that wasn’t
friendly to the environment.
“It was a dirty, nasty,
expensive process and I
didn’t think it served our
customers well,” said Jeffrey Willis, a Brooklyn
native who acquired the
company in 2007 after
operating a mill in
Chatsworth that made
auto carpet, primarily for
the Jeep Grand Cherokee.
Pretty Products has a
patent
pending
for
“GreenMats” that will be
100 percent recyclable. In
addition, NGR recycling
equipment, custom-made
in Austria, was installed at
the LaGrange plant in January and will save about
700 tons of waste annually
from going into the city
landfill.
“We cut the edges off the
mats and grind the material up, and reintroduce it
into the manufacturing
process,” said plant manager Willie E. Flowers Jr.
The plant has 140
employees on three shifts,
and makes 750,000 sets of
floor mats annually for
Honda, Toyota and Subaru. BMW, Mercedes-Benz
and Volkswagen have
expressed an interest in
GreenMats as well, and
“we would welcome the
opportunity to be a supplier to Kia and Hyundai,”
Flowers said.
The company also has a
patent pending for a “pas-

sive restraint mat” that
can’t go forward and hit
the accelerator. Willis
expects all their mats to be
made that way eventually,
but the demand isn’t there
yet.
“I think there’s a need
for an environmentally
friendly mat and a need
for a safety system in floor
mats that would preclude
sudden acceleration issues
caused by floor mats,” he
said.
Willis moved the company’s headquarters here
in July 2008 from Coshocton, Ohio, and shut down
two nonprofitable plants
in Coshocton and Mount
Pleasant, Tenn.
“We’ve taken a company with old technologies
and old processes and
transformed it into a state
of the art, environmentally
friendly, green, sustainable
company,” he said.

screaming when the team
showed up and again
when their house was
revealed.
“I tell them, if someone
showed up at your door
and offered you something
that changed your life,
wouldn’t you scream like
that?” she said jokingly.
Jeremy Williams said
one of his favorite things
during the week was
watching his football
team, the state playoffcontending Greenville
High School Patriots,
knock down his old house.
It’s a custom on the show
for the family to see their
house being demolished.
But the team wasn’t left
out, either. Leigh Ann
Touhy, matriarch of the
family that inspired “The
Blind Side” movie and an
interior designer herself,
took on the school’s field
house. It was revamped,
including the weight room,
and made more accessible
for Jeremy Williams. In a
ceremony before the family came home to their
new house, a plaque naming the field house for the
coach and athletics director was revealed.
But even more, Jeremy
Williams says what he
liked best about the
improvements was the
new equipment, thousands of dollars worth of
new things the school
would never have been
able to afford.
School’s out now, however. The golf cart the
coach uses to get around
is parked in front of the
house. Jacob always wants
to ride it.
A picnic for the team
will be at the Williamses’
new house in June, but
right now the family is just
enjoying their time together.
“I’m just so happy for
what the house provides,”
Jennifer Williams said.
There’s space and tons of
accommodations
for
Jacob.
“He can go everywhere,”
Jeremy Williams said of
his son.
The house is set up
mostly how the show’s
designers and volunteers
left it – producers asked
the family not make major
changes until after the
episode aired. The family
did get a few things out of
storage, including Jeremy
Williams’ recliner. Amazingly, it matches the decor,
although the grin on the
father’s face says the chair
was coming back either
way.
Aside from the space
and new access for their
son, Jennifer Williams
says the family photographs, displayed throughout the house, are one of
her favorite things. A professional photographer
met with the family to take
the pictures, including

before the family left for
Colorado.
“We are a picture-taking
family, don’t get me
wrong,” Jennifer Williams
said. “We have tons of pictures, but we didn’t have
any professional pictures.
It’s just not something we
would have done.”
Jennifer Williams is also
a big fan of the claw-foot
tub in the master bathroom.
Even with everything
else, however, it may be
Josie Williams’ room that
has the most personal
touches. The cowgirlthemed room has sliding
doors that are made from
the old bedroom doors of
her and her brother. Best
of all, though, it even has
its own two-story study
nook and “hay loft” tree
house.
Jennifer Williams said
everyone in the family
filled out an interview as
part of the application
process, part of which had
them list their favorite
things and what they may
want in the new house.
That’s how the ball pit was
added to the therapy
room, which both children
wanted, but it’s also how
Josie got a tree house –
she mentioned it on her
list.
“She got her interview
done first, so I went ahead
and sent it in,” Jennifer
Williams said. “The tree
house was not included in
the original design of the
house.”
Designers of the house,
Palm Harbor and Nationwide homes, added it after
reading the girl’s request.
“I’m so glad there’s
something that’s just for
her,” Jennifer Williams
said.
“I knew most of the
show was going to be
about Jeremy and Jacob.
Jacob has asked to go up
there and I’ve told him,
‘No, that’s just for your sister.’ “

Trey Eslinger just wants to
keep riding the wave.
Eslinger, who graduated from
Troup High last weekend, has
had quite a run on the waters of
West Point Lake and beyond.
Eslinger has always been a successful angler.
He started winning tournaments long before he was old
enough to drive a car, and he’s
been a regular presence at the
top of tournament leaderboards
for years.
Eslinger has never had a run
like the one he’s on now,
though.
Eslinger has been winning
everything in sight.
At one point this year, Eslinger
said he a won six consecutive
tournaments.
The man he’s fished alongside
during his recent of success is his
partner, Robert Medas.

OK, maybe I was a bit
premature to write the
Braves off.
They
were
about
halfway through their
wretched nine-game winning streak in April when
I threw in the towel.
Some people adopt a
glass half-full mentality.
Me, once a few sips are
gone, I’ll toss the glass
out.
I’m not even a fairweather fan, I’m a pristine,
cloudless,
postcard-kind-of-day fan.
So when the Braves
started losing, and losing,
and losing, I figured that
was it.
They weren’t hitting,
the pitching was OK but
not as good as it was supposed to be, and poor
Bobby Cox looked like he
was ready to go ahead
and retire to his farm in
Adairsville.
The Braves sunk to last
place, behind even the
traditionally-wretched
Washington Nationals.
Hope was lost, and a
long, dreary summer
seemed to be looming
ahead for Braves’ fans
everywhere.
Well, a funny thing happened on the way to baseball purgatory.
The Braves started winning.
Guys who looked lost
before (see Troy Glaus)
started playing ball, the
pitching staff solidified,
and they started finding
late-inning magic night
after night.
They even managed to
win a game against the
Reds when they were
down 9-3 heading into the
bottom of the ninth inning.
At the same time, the
previously seemingly unflappable
Philadelphia
Phillies started to stumble.

FROM
1B
So as play began Friday
night, the once-downtrodden Braves found themselves 1 1/2 games behind
the Phillies in the NL East.
The real fans, the diehards, they hung in there
and kept the faith, even as
the losses mounted.
The other fans (like
me), the ones who are always looking for an excuse to leap off the
bandwagon, were making
summer plans that didn’t
include the Braves.
Clearly, the Braves
weren’t done. With the
steady Cox patrolling the
dugout, they kept believing in themselves, and
they’ve managed to get
their heads back above
water.
So what’s ahead?
Are the Braves the team
that lost nine in a row and
looked like they’d struggle to beat a Troup
County recreation-league
all-star team.
Or are they team that’s
been on fire for the past
four weeks, winning
games in every imaginable way.
Truth is, they’re probably a little of both.
The beauty of a baseball
season that spans 162
games is that the best
team always rises to the
top.
There are no fluke winners in baseball.
There are plenty of reasons to like the Braves’
chances of still being
around in September,
though.
They are three games
above .500 despite some
of their star players falling
flat.
Chipper Jones has been
miserable, Yunel Escobar
has been woeful until
finding something in the
Marlins’ series, Nate McClouth has been a liability, and Brian McCann has
been hot lately, but he’s
yet to be the offensive
force he can be.
The starting pitching
has been good, especially
with the re-emergence of
Tim Hudson, but Derek
Lowe has been disappointing,
Kenshin
Kawakami is winless, and
Jair Jurrjens is hurt.
Yet here the Braves are,
perhaps a few wins away
from being in first place.
If Heyward keeps it up,
if Martin Prado continues
to hit everything, if Jones,
McCann, Escobar continue to get their bats
heated up, and if the starting staff becomes the
dominant force it can be,
there’s no reason the
Braves shouldn’t be a
playoff team.
Will it happen?
We’ll see.
At the least, it’s nice to
know these Braves are
going to be relevant,
something I wouldn’t
have guessed a month
ago.

“The Blind Side” for the
first time last week, and it
was as good as advertised.
The movie, based on a
book of the same name by
Michael Lewis, follows
the journey of Michael
Oher, a homeless teen
who showed up at a private school in Memphis,
Tenn., was taken in by a
local family, became a
football star, and eventually made it Ole Miss
where he parlayed his collegiate career into a spot
in the first round of the
NFL draft in 2009.
His story is an inspiring
one, and the movie captures it beautifully.
Make it through this
movie without tearing up
just a little bit. I dare you.
The movie does stray
quite a bit from the book,
but that’s not unusual.
I did have one of those
“no way” moments during
one of the football scenes.
Things weren’t going
well, and Leigh Anne
Tuohy – Oher’s adoptive
mother – calls the head
coach – during a game –
and the coach answers.
I’ve been around highschool football for a long
time, and I’ve never seen
a coach take a phone call
during a game.
I have a hard time picturing LaGrange coach
Steve Pardue taking a call
from an agitated parent
during a ballgame.
“Hello,” Pardue says.
“Yes coach, I think you
should be running the ball
more,” says the parent.
“Sure thing. Thanks for
your input,” the coach responds.
Not going to happen.
It was a fine movie,
though, and the message
of looking past cultural,
socio-economic and racial
differences to help someone in need is a fine one.
On a sidenote, one of
the instructors at the West
Georgia Superstar Football Camp has a direct tie,
not to the movie, but to
the book, “The Blind
Side.”
Steve Wallace, who won
three Super Bowls while
protecting the blind side
of Joe Montana and then
Steve Young, is mentioned prominently in the
novel.
He is credited for helping make the left-tackle
position what it is today.
On many teams, the left
tackle is the second highest-paid player behind the
quarterback, and Wallace
is a big part of that evolution.
What good is a quarterback if he can’t stay on his
feet?
Well, few players were
as good at keeping a quarterback upright as Wallace.
Wallace seems like an
upstanding guy who
spends a lot of time working with young people,
and he’s been a fine addition to the Superstar
camp.
Kevin Eckleberry / Daily News
Aundray Bruce, who starred at Auburn and played more than 10 seasons in the
NFL after he was drafted No. 1 by the Atlanta Falcons, is lending a hand at the
West Georgia Superstar Football Camp.
PROS
FROM
1B
sideline, with a huge grin on his face.
Stargell is one of the former National
Football League players helping out
with the three-day camp that wraps up
today at Callaway Stadium.
Others include Tony Stargell, Aundray Bruce, and Steve Wallace, who
won three Super Bowls as an offensive
lineman for the San Francisco 49ers.
Wallace also earned a place of prominence in “The Blind Side,” a book that
was eventually made into a movie.
As for Stargell, he’s a former player
from LaGrange High School and said
that he is “LaGrange all the way.”
When he received a call a four years
back from Ruben Hairston asking if he
would like to help out and coach at the
camp, he jumped at the opportunity.
“This organization means a lot to me
as well as the kids,” Stargell said. “I am
very appreciative that the parents were
able to get the kids out here on a day
to day basis. It means a lot to me.”
After leaving LaGrange High,
Stargell attended Tennessee State University, where he lettered four years in
football as a cornerback.
Stargell was drafted in the third
round by the New York Jets, and
played for them for two years before
moving on to play for the Indianapolis
Colts, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Kansas
City Chiefs and Chicago Bears.
“I am not doing anything at the moment,” Stargell said, “so with all the
free time that I have I like to dedicate it
to these kids and give them a good outlook on life because one day these kids
are going to go to college, they are
going to be professional athletes.”
Stargell stated that the one thing he
was trying to do as a coach at the camp
was to teach the campers how to be
“good young men.”
“To me, that means everything,”
Stargell said. “I grew up in a single parent home, and for me to be able to be
out here with these guys and be able to
give back is what I get my kick from.
That motivates me.
The good thing to me is to see everybody out here trying. It means a lot to
see everybody trying out here.”
Stargell went on to say that being able
to come back to LaGrange and coach
the kids at the camp is “a blessing.”
“To be able to look around and see
the kids, they very much appreciate the
guys coming back to work with them,”
Stargell said. “Sometimes it just moves
me in a way that almost brings me to
tears to see that people are willing to
come out here and invest time with
these guys. We have a lot of NFL Players out here today that are giving back
and that means a lot to me.”
Another one of those former NFL
players is former Auburn standout and
former Atlanta Falcon and Oakland
Raider Aundray Bruce.
Bruce said that he had to give all the
credit for him being involved in the
camp to his longtime friend Anthony
Freeman, who he met while attending
Auburn.
“ When I attended Auburn in 1984,”
Bruce said, “Anthony was a ball boy
there. To let you know what kind of
guy that Anthony is, we are still friends
to this day. So, when he calls any of us,
we are here.”
Bruce went on to say that being able
to come to a camp like this and be able
to give back to the community was a
great thing because he never experienced a camp such as this when he was
growing up.
“It's like a deja-vu situation” Bruce
said. “I was once in the same place that
the kids were at. I didn't have anybody
to come to my neighborhood, or come
to my city and give me a fresh outlook
on the future. My view is that if we can
put something on their minds and in
Nearly 200 young people are taking advantage of the expert instruction during
the three-day camp.
their hearts, and be able to teach them
that going to the next level is not easy,
and just teach them the little things. I
just know that our presence will help, if
only half of them end up succeeding.”
Another Auburn alum and former
Dallas Cowboy and Miami Dolphin is
also on the field helping to coach the
participants of the camp.
Tim Cromartie signed on to work at
the camp five years ago and its a decision that he has yet to regret.
“Anthony Freeman told me about the
camp and how they were looking for
guys to come up and help coach the
kids and give them some advice,” Cromartie said. “I told him that I would
love to do that. I have loved working
this camp every year.”
Cromartie went on to say that his favorite thing about working at the camp
is being able to see a child’s face light
up when he or she works hard and gets
something right.
“Just seeing the kids light up when
you instruct them and they get something right,” Cromartie said. “They
have that “all-right! I got it! Moment.
Being able to see that and feel that you
reached somebody makes me have a
good feeling.”
Ron Stallworth, another former
Auburn alum and former Kansas City
Chief and New York Jet, said that he
loves the change in pace that the camp
provides, as well as being able to give
something back to the community.
Stallworth said he became involved
in the camp through former teammate
Nate Hill.
“Even though Nate has passed,”
Stallworth said, “I want to come out
here and preserve the legacy that he
left by helping out. It's a change for me,
because my work is pretty much behind a desk, and its a chance to do
something different and be able to forget your work and go back to a time
where you used to do this stuff.”
Besides the children at the camp,
Hairston said that he was very thankful for the time and effort that the former pro guys give at the camp.
“It makes it a lot easier for everybody
having these guys come out and give
back,” Hairston said. “Everybody has
their own little terminology and the
kids have a chance to pick up a little
something from each of the coaches. I
may have something that I want them
to work on, and then another one of
the instructors will have another, completely different drill for them to work
on and help them out. Everyone of the
kids will pick up a little bit here, a little
bit there, and hopefully they will leave
with something.”
The final day of camp will be today
from 9 a.m. to noon.
There is no charge, and boys and
girls ages 8 to 18 are encouraged to attend.

“I think we won six
tournaments in a row, and
we didn’t catch the same
fish, and we didn’t fish the
same way,” said Eslinger,
a newly-minted highschool graduate. “Every
one was different.”
Only the results were
the same.
In one of those tournaments, Trey beat his father,
successful
tournament angler Frank
Eslinger, by 2/100ths of an
ounce.
Eslinger also won a
tournament at Lake Harding.
“It’s hard to (win tournaments),” Eslinger said.
“You never get used to it.
It’s been a lot of fun this
year.”
Eslinger and Medas
have had a lot of success
on the Highland Marina
Resort Team Trail.
The two men are leading the points standings
through five events, and
they’d won two in a row
before coming up short
last weekend.
In a team trail where
anglers are measured not
so much by wins but by
their ability to finish high
each week, “the biggest
thing is being consistent,”
Eslinger said. “We’re getting points in every tournament.”
Eslinger generally finds
a tournament to compete
in every week, and he figures he’ll fish in at least
one of the two events held
at Highland Marina Resort this weekend.
“I usually find something to fish,” he said.
Eslinger and Medas will
return to West Point Lake
on June 13 for the next
Highland Marina team
trail event, and he’s already looking forward to
the Georgia State Championship in November.
“That’s the hardest
tournament of the year,”
he said. “It’s tough.”
■ Baseball
Tigers
ousted
AUBURN, Ala. (AP) –
Taylor Hashman’s threerun homer with two outs in
the top of the 10th inning
lifted Mississippi to a 10-7
victory over Auburn in an
elimination game of the
Southeastern Conference
tournament Friday night.
Zach Miller drew a oneout walk to chase pitcher
Sean Ray. Bradley Hendrix set down Matt Smith,
but then Matt Snyder singled to bring up Hashman. He delivered a shot
to centerfield for his ninth
home run of the season.
Now, the Rebels (38-21)
will have to beat LSU
twice to to make the
championship game with
less than 13 hours between games.
■ GEORGIA TECH: The
Atlantic Coast Conference
baseball
tournament
game between Georgia
Tech and North Carolina
State has been suspended
because of weather.
League officials say the
game will resume at 10
a.m. today.
The Yellow Jackets led
2-0 in the first inning Friday night when the game
was halted.
■ HIT STREAK: It’s now
a 51-game hitting streak
for Florida International’s
Garrett Wittels.
The sophomore infielder singled in the first
inning off South Alabama's Garrett Harris on
Friday, moving within
seven games of matching
Robin Ventura for the
NCAA Division I record.
Molder vaults up leaderboard
FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) –
Bryce Molder shot a career-best 8under 62 and leads after two
rounds at the Colonial.
Molder’s round Friday got him to
13 under. That’s good for a onestroke lead over first-round coleader Jason Bohn and two strokes
better than Kris Blanks and Brian
Davis.
Molder had a chance to match
the course record of 61, but missed
an 8-foot birdie putt at the 18th
hole. The 31-year-old Molder, a
four-time All-American at Georgia
Tech, has split time between the
PGA and Nationwide tours since
his professional debut in 2002.
■ CHAMPIONS TOUR: Fred Couples shot a 4-under 68 to take the
lead at the Senior PGA Championship, one stroke ahead of Tom
Kite at the Colorado Golf Club.
Couples was at 7 under for the
tournament after the best round of
the day, despite teeing off in the afternoon, when the wind picked up.

No apologies for rain-shortened win
CONCORD, N.C. (AP) – David Reutimann
nervously paced pit road last season, praying
that the sun would stay away and racing
would not resume at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
He stood in the rain an agonizing two
hours, certain NASCAR would not call the
race anytime soon. Sure, the forecast was
bleak, but Reutimann had never been a benefactor of good luck or great timing.
“These things don’t ever go our way,” he
said to himself. “I don’t know why it should
now.”
But for the first time in his NASCAR caDavid Reutimann won last

■ Sprint Cup
NASCAR stopped the Coca-Cola 600 last
season just past the halfway point. He won it
on a gamble: running 14th when the leaders
pitted, his crew chief told him to stay out and
pray the sky would open up.
The decision gave Reutimann the lead for
the next five laps, all run under caution.
NASCAR then called the cars to pit road for
a third rain stoppage, and Reutimann stood
by his Toyota the entire time.
A year later, as he prepares to defend that
victory Sunday, he jokes about how his spot
in the record books is viewed.
“Like I’m the only guy on the planet that's
ever won a rain-shortened race?” Reutimann
said. “It is what it is. You always have that little star beside it. You don’t like it because
people look at it different. So it just drives
you more to go out there to win it the way
you want to win it to begin with.
“Trust me, I didn’t want to win the race that
way. It’s just the way it worked out.”
Reutimann heads into Sunday's race

points out of the 12th Chase for the Sprint
Cup championship qualifying position. His
ranking would be higher if not for blown motors at Atlanta, Bristol and Texas – he was
running inside the top 10 in all three races –
and was in seventh when he pitted at Darlington, just as the caution flag came out.

Saving Senoia

Weekend, May 29-30, 2010
By Sherri Brown
Staff writer
SENOIA–There are many people who would like to
pin a medal on Scott Tigchelaar, declaring him a hero
for saving Senoia. He won’t have anything to do with
that, though.
It’s true that Tigchelaar, president of Riverwood
Studios in Senoia had the vision and the funds to
revitalize the tiny town a few miles east of Newnan.
However, he’s the first to point out that without the
support and trust of an entire community, it would
never have happened.
Riverwood Studios opened in Senoia 20 years ago.
“My uncle, Joe Lombardi, started the first independent special effects company back in the ‘80s
when a lot of filming was going on in Georgia,”
Tigchelaar said.
The studio was sought after for its work. At times it
was booked solid for as much as seven years.
“Then Canada offered good tax breaks and everyone started filming there. We started producing a
kids show for Hallmark, then Joe died suddenly,” he
said.
That changed everything and for a time, the studio
closed its doors. By 2003 it became obvious if Georgia was going to be a hot spot for film makers, tax
incentives would have to compete with Canada.
“We met with State Sen. Mitch Seabaugh and he
took it and ran,” Tigchelaar said.
It took three years to design a comprehensive plan
that would attract film companies, while also benefiting the local economy. It worked.
“It’s revitalized the industry in Georgia and the
economic shot (for Georgia) starts now,” he said.
In the meantime, Senoia was changing. For
decades, the downtown stores were owned and operated by a handful of longtime Senoia families. When
one family found itself needing to sell property the
most interested buyer was Dollar General. The company proposed a store and a small strip mall at the
edge of the historical downtown.
Everyone thought that was a terrible idea - including Tigchelaar.
The town had served as a back lot for the studio
with about two dozen film projects using the downtown buildings as a back drop, including the movie,
“Fried Green Tomatoes.” Current film projects
include a Lifetime television show, “Drop Dead
Diva,” and a feature film, “Killers.”
The studio gathered the downtown owners together at one table and made an offer.
“We told them to keep their buildings and sell us
the vacant lots. We promised to make sure any development would be historically accurate,” Tigchelaar
said.
Because the business owners knew the studio’s
commitment to the area, they agreed. Within three
months, the studio had purchased 22 properties – all
in the historic district.
Building and renovations began and before long
new businesses moved in, including a radio station, a
doctor’s office, restaurants and, of course, retail
shops. The new buildings built alongside the original
structures blended seamlessly.
“I like it,” said Gail Turner, who has lived in the
area for 14 years. “Even the new buildings look like
they’ve been here 100 years. Everything is tasteful

Senoia, a tiny town in Coweta County, has experienced a resurrection of sorts in the past year. In June,
residents expect to begin greeting as many as 40,000 visitors coming to see the 2010 Southern Living Idea
House.
Sherri Brown / Daily News
An extra-large porch swing is tucked away in a below-ground-level outdoor area of the Southern Living
Idea House. The house will open to the public June 12.
Senoia now has dozens of shops with an eclectic offering of antiques, gift-ware and food.

nations that is having a
terrible impact on children.
A study done at the University of California
showed that 80 percent of
girls in the fourth grade
have attempted to diet
because they see themselves as fat.
How sad it is that children in this culture have
been taught to hate their
bodies.
For young girls this
insistence on being thin is
magnified by the cruelties
of childhood. Dozens of
studies now show that
overweight children are
held in low regard by
their peers, even at an
early age.
According to one investigation, silhouettes of
obese children were
described by six-year-olds
as lazy, stupid and ugly.
This overemphasis on
beauty does not occur in
a vacuum, of course.

Attitudes of children shaped by previous generations
Question: I have heard
you say that we have
shamefully mismanaged
the present generation of
children. Explain what
you meant by that.
Dr. Dobson: I was
referring to the many
harmful influences that
previous generations didn't have to confront -- at
least not to the degree
that we see today.
That includes safe-sex
ideology and violence and
sexual imagery in movies,
rock music and television;
it refers to gang activity
and drug abuse, and
many other dangerous
aspects of the culture.
I was speaking also
about
the
extreme
emphasis on physical
attractiveness and body
consciousness in Western
HILL STREET HOUSE
our system of values.
We, too, measure
human worth largely on a
scale of physical attractiveness. It's bad enough
when adults evaluate each
other that way. It's tragic
when millions of children
have already concluded
that they're hopelessly
flawed, even before life
has gotten started.
We must take the blame
for the many pressures on
today's kids.
Fifty years ago, parents
and other adults acted in
concert to protect kids
from pornography.

Workers put the final touches on the 2010 Southern Living Idea House in Senoia. As a brownstone, the Idea House is the first of its kind for the organization.

and true to the town’s heritage.”
Again, it wasn’t just the studio’s influence.
“This is a team effort. If the town council hadn’t
been behind us, if these families (who owned the
properties) didn’t trust us, there would be nothing
here,” Tigchelaar said. “They created zoning classifications that didn’t exist before. We have a local bank
that has backed us.”
Tigchelaar hired Historical Concepts, an architecture firm from nearby Peachtree City. In planning a
new neighborhood near the downtown, the firm put
Tigchelaar in touch with Southern Living, the magazine that builds Idea Houses.
“Historical Concepts was the matchmaker,”
Tigchelaar said. It didn’t take a lot of doing.
Frank Craige, Southern Living Idea House manager, came to Senoia to check out the possibility of
building there.
“I scout for locations with a sense of place – Southern and interesting. I saw Senoia and I signed them
up,” Craige said. “They’ve got the town on their side
and we’ll bring in 40,000 people here to see the
house.”
No one hero will be getting a medal for saving
Senoia, but an entire town can carry the honor of
restoration with pride.

The making of a
Southern Living
Idea House
By Sherri Brown
Staff writer
Southern Living magazine has been highlighting unique
off-the-beaten-path southern towns for decades.
“With the growing attention on small-town life and family-oriented, walkable communities, we set our sights on
finding a historic town under revitalization,” said Kristen
The bicycle built for four, above right, that was used in the film ‘Mary Poppins’ hangs in Emma’s Fudge Payne, director of Southern Living Homes Group.
Shop in downtown Senoia. At left, an outdoor area completes the Idea House.
Senoia was a perfect fit.
Southern Living chose Senoia as the location to feature one of two Southern Living Idea Houses in 2010.
The Senoia house is unique in that it is the first brownstone project Southern Living has built.
Working with the developer – in this case Scott
Tigchelaar of Riverwood Studios – Southern Living builds
the house in a week and furnishes in a week.
“We hire the architect, landscape architect, builders
and designers,” said Frank Craige, Southern Living Idea
House manager. “But they own the house.”
Tigchelaar supported the brownstone idea because it
would fit in with the growing community in Senoia, as well
as provide yet another back drop for filming.
“A street of brownstones can be Boston, Charleston,
Savannah, even New York,” Tigchelaar said. “It adds to
the shootability of the town.”
Thinking ahead, the brownstones have back alley
access to parking and entering the homes.
“Closing streets (for filming) is the biggest pain. Now
we have easy access,” he said.
■ The Southern Living Idea House is open for tours
from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays
and from 1 to 5 p.m. Sundays, June 12 through Dec. 12
Tickets are $10 and benefits the American Cancer Society Cattle Baron’s Ball 2010. For detailed information,
see www.southernliving.com/home-garden/ideahouses/
■ Directions to downtown Senoia and the Southern
Living Idea House:
From La Grange, take Interstate 85 North to Exit 41.
Turn left onto GA 29 North, go 1/2 mile, and turn right
onto GA 16 East; continue 14.7 miles. The road will fork
at one point, stay to the right. Then, turn left onto Broad
Street to downtown Senoia. Local signs will assist you
once you reach Senoia.
Southern Living builders prefer not to use bright colored portable restrooms, so they build a temporary building and landscape it. This building will be removed when the house is completed.

Real food recipes
Most parents face the
same mealtime dilemma
– making affordable and
convenient food that the
whole family will like.
Time is short, palates are
picky and some fear it will
cost too much to put real
food on the table.
Celebrity chef Bobby
Flay joined the Hellmann’s®
and
Best
Foods® Real Food Project
to help moms tackle the
barriers to real food in
simple and helpful ways.
“Real food does not have
to be complicated. With a
few basic ingredients, it’s
easy to create a meal you
can feel good about serving the whole family,” said
Flay.
Flay encourages using
food made with ingredients that are simple and
delicious. “Real food that
tastes great is something
every member of the family can appreciate,” said
Flay. “Adding elements
like Hellmann’s® Real
Mayonnaise made with
eggs, oil and vinegar goes
a long way toward making real food taste great.
You can also use Hellmann’s Light®, which has
half the calories and fat of
Real Mayonnaise and is
now made with 100 percent cage-free eggs.”

videos, visit the Real Food
Project at www.Hellmanns.com or www.BestFoods.com.

THE FAMILY CIRCUS
Bil Keane
Jerry Scott and Jim Borgman
HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Saturday,
May 29, 2010
This year, you will swing
between socializing and networking
and intense one-on-one conversations. Others often seek you out for
different reasons, but many cherish
your advice, enjoy your presence
and like your personality. If you are
single, you easily could meet “the
one” through this circle of admirers.
If you are attached, the two of you
learn to be more open, as difficult as
it can be. Let a partner take the lead
more often. CAPRICORNS like your
thinking. They respect new ideas.
The Stars Show the Kind of Day
You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
#### Whether you are making
travel plans or reaching out for
someone at a distance, you will be
thinking about taking off. Your
instincts help you take charge in
touchy situations. Tonight: A must
appearance. Everyone will miss you
if you don’t show up.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
##### A friend uses a situation
to share something important. At
times you might be overwhelmed
by what is being presented. Let this
person express his or her ideas. You
might need to rethink your opinions. Tonight: Detach from an issue.
The answers will come sooner.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
#### Others seek you out, but
don’t assume you will like everything you hear! Get out of the house
and clear out. No more routine!
Recharge your batteries in a situation where people surround you.
Tonight: The only answer to a
request is “yes.”
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
### Jump into a project early in
the day. You could hit a difficult
point where you might want to
rethink your direction. Tap into a
friend’s or loved one’s ideas. Others
want to help. Let them. Tonight: In
the whirlwind of living. Have fun!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
#### Your imagination easily
fills in the blanks. You might feel
like you must say “no” to spending
and perhaps try to be realistic about
a partner or loved one. Pace yourself as the day gets older. Tonight:
Do what feels good for you.
Ad goes here
HOROSCOPE
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
### You could be harder on a
family member or roommate than
you intended to. To this person,
when you close down, you frighten
him or her. Opt for an open conversation, and state your boundaries.
Tonight: Let your hair down.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
##### Keep up talks, even
though you might be imagining or
sensing the response from others.
Work through a sense of being ill at
ease with the help of a pal. You need
to open up and lessen stress.
Tonight: Stay close to home.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
### Expenses could soar, especially if you need to do some specific shopping. Rethink what you are
deciding to do. Is there another
more cost-effective manner of handling this purchase? Tonight: Get
together with friends.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
#### Use the morning for a
key project. You also might decide
to just let go of errands and responsibilities and go out and join a
friend. Whether hiking or playing a
game of racquetball, you feel great.
Everyone needs a timeout. Tonight:
Indulge a friend.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
### Try to plan a low-key
morning without a lot of interaction.
By the afternoon, you recycle and
feel ready to take your world by
storm. Others demonstrate their
delight to see you. Tonight: The
world is your oyster. Act that way.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
#### Friends yank you out the
door early in the day. Whether you
meet for brunch or go for a day outing, you are happiest among people.
Still, by midafternoon, a private conversation occurs. Share, too, even if
you’re a bit uncomfortable. Tonight:
Only with one person.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
#### Others ask you to chip in.
The end result is that you could
carry more responsibility than you
wish. You were well chosen, as you
cruise through the task with speed.
Make midafternoon plans that
please you. Tonight: The center of
the party.

■ Rosemont Elementary School
Second-grade students at Rosemont
recently studied the plants and animals
of the rain forest. The students added
animals, birds and frogs to the ‘rain forest tree’ that was displayed in the hall.
In order to help the students remember
the different layers of the rain forest, the
second-grade teachers acted out the
layers. From bottom, Catherine Athon
demonstrates the bottom layer or forest
flower, Laura Moore demonstrates the
second layer or the understory, Tracy
Jones demonstrates the third layer or
the canopy and Leah Doughman
demonstrates the top layer or the emergent level of the rain forest

Callaway Middle School teamed up with Kroger to help the MDA Foundation.
Each home room competed to see who could purchase the most shamrocks.
In all, students purchased 532 shamrocks for $1 each. Terri Herndon's and
Tony Whisnant's home rooms sold the most and were treated to a pizza party
sponsored by Kroger. All the money goes to the MDA Foundation to support
research.

The female students at Whitesville Road Elementary School hosted a mother/daughter tea for their mothers, grandmothers and/or female guardians.
Guests were treated to cookies and punch, top, as well as entertainment, bottom, provided by Christina Rank, Jordan Helton, Rose Chappell and Megan
Knight from the Techniques School of Dance and Gymnastics in LaGrange.
Click go the rings in my binder, more homework. If you think about it, homework is useless to kids. We spend seven hours in school doing work, so why should
we have homework? Kids should be able to go home and have fun.
If we keep getting homework, we won’t have time for exercise and will not be
healthy. Homework gives us a limted time to play and watch TV.
Sometimes homework can be frustrating, and it will make you angry. If we did not
have so much homework, fewer students would be on silent lunch.
Now, I hope I gave you enough good resason to convince you we could not have
homework.
