July Tips, Trends and Trendsetters

| News / Events | July 13, 2017

By Corby Carlin Winters
Marketing / Public Relations, The Paper

Each month I strive to share current trends and ideas that are popular and impact our lives in positive ways.  It is so hard to imagine that June is upon us and summer is here. Many are headed to the beach while others are opting for the Staycation.

I love to covering style, fashion, health, wellness, beauty, relationships and everyday life tips and trends.  It is my desire to bring you a variety of fun topics and sometimes, life-changing trends.   I hope you enjoy them and please feel free to share The Paper and The Shopper with friends and family.

There are things however, that are just trendy and a passing fad. Those I am not so fond of covering those but sometimes it is just fun to see what those latest fads are and how long will they actually stay around.

Spinners, Gadgets and Stress Managers
Spinners are all the rage for kids, at least that is what the SONs are telling me and all the other kiddos I meet.  I am sure, unless you are under a rock or are never around children, you will  have heard of these.

That being said, evidently I must admit being under a rock for a few months.  It is funny when I was a young gal I used to play with Play-Doh.Winters played with silly putty and we played with our pets. We didn’t have electronic games we could take anywhere, anytime, and television that we could watch in our cars. It was a different time indeed. Now this Generation X and Millennials have cell phones, iPads and are now carrying spinners wherever they go.

Let’s make today so awesome that yesterday gets jealous


Seniors in the Sharpsburg area will now have weekly activities from the Coweta County Senior Services. The agency, run through the Coweta County Recreation Department, has opened its fourth weekly senior citizen program. The gatherings are Mondays from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the new Central Community Center at 85 Literary Lane, next to the Central Library.

In the early 1900’s, Lobster was considered the “cockroach of the ocean” and was synonymous with the poor – often eaten regularly by the homeless, slaves and prisoners. It wasn’t until after World War II that lobster became considered a delicacy and a food associated with the aristocratic classes.


The Newnan-Coweta Historical Society (NCHS) will be hosting its own version of the PBS program, “Antiques Roadshow” on July 15 at the Historic Train Depot on East Broad Street in downtown Newnan. The event, “Trash or Treasure —  What’s in your Attic” will run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.  Appraisers and specialists will deliver the talks and offer background information while revealing the worth of entries submitted.

The Shopper Real Estate: Home Inspections

| News / Events | July 11, 2017

By Jess Baron, Lindsey’s Inc. Realtors

Home inspections are an important part a real estate transaction. I have been disappointed to learn that many consumers do not realize that they have the option to have a home inspection on the property they are purchasing.

In a typical transaction, the opportunity to conduct a home inspection occurs during your due-diligence period. This is the point, in a contract, where the buyer has a negotiated length of time, usually 7-21 days, to conduct their due diligence on the property. Home inspectors will typically charge a few hundred dollars for an inspection, depending on the size of the property and other factors like a crawlspace.

Georgia is one of about 20 states that have not adopted licensing for home inspectors. It is important to consider a home inspector’s training and background when considering who to use. Your Realtor should have a pool of trusted home inspectors for you to consider.

Publisher’s Page: ‘What exactly is The Paper?’

| News / Events | July 6, 2017

By John A. Winters, Publisher and Editor
The Shopper and The Paper

We were having a sales meeting a while back and the consensus was there are enough people out there confused about our new publication, The Paper, that we needed to clear it up.

First off, The Shopper and The Paper are sister publications so to speak. Both are owned by Winters Media & Publishing, Inc, which Corby and I formed when we first bought The Shopper from Joe Williams late last year.  The Shopper has been around since 1989, while The Paper started two months ago.

The two publications are not in competition; nor do we have plans for one to replace the other. In fact, they have unique markets and distribution points.

The Paper is a monthly publication. Our first issue was 2,500 copies; the second issue we doubled that; and we are looking at increasing it again. The response has been tremendous and we just want to thank everyone for its success.

At its core, The Paper is a “what to see, do and eat” publication. It focuses on food and restaurants, including the area’s best “joints;” entertainment and live music; and extensive calendars covering everything from baseball games to rock concerts to parades.

The Shopper Kitchen: Caesar, Maurice and their famous salads

| News / Events | July 6, 2017

By Angela McRae, The Shopper Kitchen

One reason I so enjoy food history is that it always ends up being people history as well.

Hudson’s Maurice Salad

Take Caesar Salad, for instance. Ever wonder where Caesar Salad gets its name? Some say the salad was the creation of an Italian-American restaurateur, either Caesar Cardini or Alex Cardini, his brother, depending on your source. The story goes that the Cardini brothers lived in San Diego but operated a restaurant in Tijuana, Mexico, to get around that pesky Prohibition thing.

An article on Kitchenproject.com says, “According to Caesar’s daughter Rosa, on July 4, 1924 the salad was created on a busy weekend at Caesar’s Restaurant. It is said that Caesar was short of supplies and didn’t want to disappoint the customers, so he concocted this salad with what was on hand. To add a flair to this, he prepared it at the table.” The website acknowledges that the tale “is not certifiable,” and frankly, I don’t mind. I’m just glad that someone invented a delicious salad featuring Romaine lettuce, garlic, Parmesan cheese and croutons.

Ask the County Agent: ‘What’s wrong with my tomato plants?’

| News / Events | July 6, 2017

By Stephanie R. Butcher
County Coordinator Agricultural & Natural Resources Agent
UGA Extension – Coweta County

QUESTION: What is wrong with my tomato plants? They started out looking great, but now the leaves are cupping and the new growth is twisted and gnarled looking.

COUNTY AGENT: If you’re seeing twisted, gnarled stems on your tomato plants like the ones in the picture, then your tomatoes are showing symptoms of herbicide damage. Although damage from viruses and some insects can also cause leaves to cup and curl, the damage from a broadleaf herbicide like 2,4-D is unmistakable and it is most noticeable in the newest growth on the plant.

Tomato plants are especially sensitive to herbicides and will show symptoms long before other plants will. Be careful when using mulch and compost in your garden. Investigate the source to ensure there haven’t been any herbicides applied on the pasture or used on the hay where you get your compost or mulch.

Most pastures and hayfields are sprayed with herbicides in order to meet consumer demand for high quality, weed-free forage. Although today’s herbicides have low toxicity to humans and animals, they are very good at killing broadleaf weeds, and they don’t know the difference between a nuisance weed and your beloved tomato plant.
