Life Changing Business Opportunity Home to the state capitol and the majority of Hawaii’s popula-
tion, Oahu is a vibrant mix of natural and cultural wonders with the
modern arts, entertainment, and amenities of the 21st century.In
Oahu you can see pro surfers charge the big winter waves of the fa-
mous North Shore. Learn about American history at the memorials
and museums in Pearl Harbor. You can also soak up the sun and
learn to surf yourself on legendary Waikiki Beach.
MOLOKAI - The Friendly Island
With almost half of its population being of native Hawaiian an-
cestry, Molokai is an island that has preserved its connection to the
past and its love for the outdoors. Step back to a simpler time in
the sleepy town of Kaunakakaki or view the verdant flora in Halawa
Valley. You can also learn about the works of Father Damien at
Kalaupapa Settlement.
LANAI - The Secluded Island
Without a single traffic light, Lanai is a true island getaway for
luxury, romance, and privacy away from crowds. Play golf at Lanai’s
two prestigious courses or see the rock formations at Keahiakawelo,
“The Garden of the Gods.”
MAUI - the Valley Isle
The second largest island is home to what some believe are
the best beaches in the world, as well as Humpback whales who
migrate off Maui’s shores every winter. In Maui you can wake up
early to catch the sunrise atop Haleakala Crater and stroll through
historic Lahaina, and learn about Maui’s whaling past. Or you can
drive the long and winding road to Hana for spectacular scenery.
HAWAII - The Big Island
Bigger than all of the other islands combined, the island of Ha-
waii, or Hawaii’s Big Island, is vast enough to hold 11 of the world’s
13 climactic zones—from sandy beaches to snowcapped moun-

Langford Photography Portrait Studio now open
The walls have been painted, the furniture is in its place, and
portraits are hung on the walls. Langford Photography opened its
doors on July 11, 2009.
Langford Photography’s journey towards a studio space began
in late November 2008 when owners, Joe and Kim Langford, be-
gan looking around at available spaces throughout West Atlanta.
What an amazing experience it has been, complete with its heart-
aches, lessons in patience, and finally…the right space. Nestled in
historic downtown Villa Rica, Joe and Kim can now sit down with
clients in a private, relaxing environment. They enjoy getting to
know their clients and coming up with ways to capture who they
are. Their clients will end up with portraits that are great for shar-
ing with family and friends, but that also have a fine art quality,
something your family will want to frame and cherish as heirlooms.
Langford Photography photographs children, families, maternity
and weddings. Stop by and see Joe and Kim daily from 10:00am
to 7:00pm.
The studio is located at 224 West Montgomery Street in Villa

• 66 percent of Americans were overweight or obese in 2004.
  
Obesity is associated with significantly increased risk of adult-onset
  
 
  diabetes, hypertension, certain forms of cancer and osteoarthritis.
• Diabetes is on the rise, with an estimated 14.6 million Ameri-
cans already diagnosed and another 6.2 million unaware they have
the disease.
• The American Diabetes Association puts the financial toll of
diabetes at $132 billion annually, a cost that is sure to soar if the
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are correct: The CDC
expects one in three five year olds in this country to become diabetic
because they are overweight or obese.
• In New York City, the disease has already reached epidemic
proportions and affects more than one in eight adults.
Too often people with persistent diseases get little or no care until
a crisis lands them in costly emergency-room settings, hospitals, or
nursing homes. In fact, these chronic patients, sometimes known
in hospitals as “frequent flyers” - soak up a huge share of the na-
tion’s medical spending. Chronic patients make up only 5 percent
of Medicare’s beneficiaries, but they account for 43 percent of the
program’s cost.
Staying healthy and independent is a lifelong job. With more of us
living longer, life itself has definitely become a marathon. If we want
our lives to be not only longer but better, we have to keep to a steady,
endurance-building jog for most of the race, with the ability to sprint
when circumstances demand. The reason is simple: what we do in
the short term can have a tremendous effect on the quality of our
lives in the long run.
Despite new medical discoveries and technological breakthroughs,
health problems cloud the future for many Americans. Our health
and independence are precious commodities. Let’s ensure they’re
protected through an emphasis on prevention and wellness.
In closing, it is never too late to start. Exercise your brain, avoid
sugar and eat your fruits and vegetables. I love my residents but
would much rather everyone remain healthy and independent at
home for as long as possible.

kicker will walk away with $10k. Also for the adventure lovers they
will have an ATV Four-Wheeler Race where two local dealerships
will battle out their latest models in the arena.
You might be wondering how such action-packed nights have
found their way to Villa Rica. Clint Chance, the heart and soul
of this rodeo, has always been inspired by his father Donald
Chance. Donald was a professional bull-rider for 15 years until his
retirement in the late eighties. “My father’s love of the sport and
his commitment to his family has pushed me to continue promoting
quality rodeo entertainment.”
Bart Smith, general manager of Don-Rich-Ford, plays a key
role in the Frontiers’ Rodeo. This is the fourth year Don-Rich has
been the main sponsor and fans always have a good time checking
out the latest car and truck models that are available at their lot
located in downtown Villa Rica. Mr. Smith encourages everyone to
participate. “I want to thank everyone for the overwhelming turn
out the past three years and invite you to the fourth annual Don-
Rich Ford Frontiers Rodeo and see the 2010 Ford Vehicle Line-Up
while having a great family night of fun!” Many aspects of revenue
generated from this event will benefit local school clubs and the
city’s park and recreation.
Buy your advanced tickets for $12 for adults and $6 for children
(ages six to 12). For children five and under admission is free.
Advance tickets are on sale at Don-Rich-Ford, ET Doyal & Sons,
and Wallace Farm Supply starting August 10th. Tickets at the gate
are $2 more a piece. The Rodeo is held at the V-Plex located on
Highway 61 across from Bay Springs Middle School.

She does not need to know all the details, nor does she have
to have expertise. God has placed in her a “chip” called “intu-
ition.” That intuition cannot explain why she feels the way she
does, she just knows when something is not right. Conversely,
husbands bring a totally different perspective that may give an
alternative side to a situation that the wife has never consid-
ered. God has called married couples to be one. If we seek to
make decisions independently, then we benefit from only 50%
of the intended resource God has placed within our grasp. In
marriage, this stewardship of decisions requires two people. God
blesses this union by honoring the decisions made with the mo-
tive of glorifying God and relying on His Spirit to lead in our
decision-making process.
Before you make a major decision, get confirmation for your
decision from your spouse.

Embrace Life, No Matter What
Submitted by Amy L. Brown, 228 S. Carroll Rd, Villa
Rica, 678-840-5000, www.amybrown.biz
Have you ever heard, “If I had only had more
time.”
As people grow older, some may have regrets about
all the things they did not do. Not taking an exotic trip
or missing visits to family members might top the list. Your list might
even include “not running a marathon.” One of the biggest regrets
may be not telling a loved one how much you care.
One thing is for sure: The more you enjoy life and prepare for
the unexpected, the fewer regrets you may have.
While no one can possibly do everything on a lifetime to-do list,
there are plenty of ways to show people you care. One way is to
make sure your family has the financial means to continue living
their current lifestyle if you are no longer around.
Life insurance is one way to do just that. A strong economic
foundation includes adequate life insurance coverage; enough to
cover a mortgage, college tuition or outstanding debts.
There are many online sites that provide calculators to deter-
mine your life insurance needs. A qualified insurance professional
can help you choose a policy to meet your needs and fit in your
budget. Once a policy is in place, you can revisit it, especially dur-
ing different life events, to make certain the coverage is still ap-
propriate.
Knowing you have provided for your loved ones will give you
peace of mind so you can enjoy doing the things you’ve always
wanted to do.

Dave Ramsey Teaching Series At Discovery Church
The Discovery Church will be hosting a three week teaching
series by Dave Ramsey called
“Life. Money. Hope.” beginning
August 16th at 10:00am.
This is a special teaching se-
ries that Dave Ramsey recorded
via video to address the cur-
rent financial concerns of our
time. The topics that Dave will
address include: God’s way to
handle money; The five things
that the Bible says you must do
in order to win; The five steps to
get out of debt, and more.
Alan Trippe, the Lead Pastor of Discovery discusses the need
for this three week series, “It’s good to see that some things are
beginning to turn around in our economy, but we still have a
long way to go, and the need for sound financial advice is criti-
cal. There are still many families facing difficult times finan-
cially, and uncertainty regarding their jobs, debt, homes and
more. I believe this three week series could change the lives of
many individuals and families in our community.”
For additional details including directions, visit their website
at www.thediscoverychurch.org or call Alan directly at 404-
583-6337.

REMODELING TIPS
A Great Time for a New Kitchen
By Joyce McArthur, West Georgia Kitchen & Bath, Inc., 490-B
Bankhead Hwy., Carrollton, 770-830-0511, www.westgeorgiakitch-
ens.com
You see a fashionable, clean and organized kitchen in your
mind, with fabulous countertops and beautiful cabinet doors that
look like furniture. That old 1970’s kitchen just isn’t doing it for
you. Or perhaps you’ve purchased a foreclosure that needs some
serious TLC. A kitchen looks good for ten to 15 years, and yours
has probably outlived its attractiveness and function.
Why is this a great time to dig into that kitchen remodel, when
money’s tight for everyone?
Here are a few good reasons: FREE SINK & SINK BASE
1) Discounts – Cabinet manufacturers all over the country are Now - August 31, 2009
running free cabinet promotions or percent off sales to keep their
factories open. Look for brand name cabinets at your local kitchen

a minimum order. These promotions can save you $500 to $1000 Free Sink*

all kinds of crafts with her hands, and
the list goes on. The one area that
she would admit that she struggles
with involves the area of gardening.
She doesn’t think she has a “green thumb”, so the few gardens we
have attempted through the years have usually been quite small.
In fact, we’ve been talking recently about the possibility of re-
ally stretching ourselves in the near future. We are actually con-
sidering planting a garden with rows, and not just using pots! It’s
true! Our bountiful harvest this year has consisted primarily of
cherry tomatoes planted in a pot! And I must admit, she’s done a
great job with them. As we ponder the possibility of branching out
into a “real” garden, I am well aware of the fact that it will require
greater effort. We will need to fertilize, weed, water, etc. But we
also expect that the greater the investment, then the greater the
harvest will be.
Greater investment equals greater harvest. Have you ever
spent time thinking about what you are investing your life in? The
Bible tells us that Jesus spoke often about harvesting, but it was
of a different kind. Jesus spoke about the harvest of people, not
plants. In Matthew 9:37 it tells us that one day when Jesus was
talking with his friends he told them “The harvest is plentiful, but
the workers are few”.
God is seeking individuals that will be workers for his kingdom.
People need God, and God uses people like you and me to reach
other people. I encourage you to seek new and creative ways to
be a worker for God’s kingdom, investing your life into the lives
of others, and you will experience a harvest like you could never
imagine. - Alan

What is Home Staging?
By Wannetta Beck, Certified Home Stager and owner of Welcome Home
Stagers, 678-232-8294, www.welcomehomestagers.com
Home Staging is the process of preparing and deco-
rating a home for sale, to create a good first impression.
The goal is to make the home more esthetically appeal-
ing so that it attracts potential buyers, sells quickly and
sells for the best possible price.
The home stager identifies the target market and
understands the potential buyer’s deepest desires and fears. There
must also be rapport and trust between the home stager and the home
owner. The positive features of the home are highlighted and the lesser
attributes are downplayed. You want to create an appealing home en-

WellStar Health System, WellStar Cardiovascular Medicine and Quantum

cardiologists determine your level of risk for heart disease or future cardiac
issues.

Screenings are available for $150 (price available for a limited time), and a
physician referral is not required. The screening takes less than 30 minutes
and requires no special preparation. Call 770-956-STAR (7827) for more

Proper Backpack Fitting
By Justin B. Rich, MPT, CSCS and Eric Morante, PT, MBA, CSCS
of Accel Physical Therapy. Accel has 2 con-
venient locations in Villa Rica at Mirror Lake
Boulevard and in Douglasville
Would you ask your child to carry a load
of bricks on their back? Sadly, this happens
quite often when we ask our children to carry a heavy backpack filled
with textbooks, binders, laptops, and gym clothes. In a study conducted
by Spine Magazine, 80% of the children surveyed said that their back-
packs were heavy. Furthermore, 65% felt that their backpacks caused
them fatigue and 46% reported back pain due to the heavy load.
Here are some tips on how to properly fit, select, and use your child’s
backpack:
1) Pick a backpack that is appropriate for the child’s size and age.
The pack should fit comfortably between the top of the shoulder and
the bottom of the low back.
2) The shoulder pads should be well padded, wide over the shoulder
and narrower as they pass under the arms.
3) Always wear both straps to distribute weight evenly and adjust
the straps so that the pack fits snug to the child’s back. The back pack
should not hang below the child’s waistline.
4) A pack with wide hip belt will help to distribute the weight and
steady the load.
5) A rolling pack, if allowed, can help to relieve stress from the neck
and back.
6) The loaded backpack should be no more than 10% (elementary
school) to 15% (junior high to high school) of the child’s body weight.
7) When loading the backpack, always load the heaviest items clos-
est to the child’s back.
