April Publisher’s note: Love Local

Cynthia Rozzo Spring 2014

When you read this issue, the azalea bushes and cherry trees should be bursting with color against the beautiful blue Georgia sky. We’ll be serenaded by the sounds of chirping birds and whirring lawnmowers. Signs that spring has sprung and summer is just around the corner. Ahhh, summer . . . School will be out and how will your children pass the lazy, hazy days of summer? This April issue features our 14th Annual Day Camp Guide (pages 16-29). We have put together a list of day camps offered right here in East Cobb County and/or a short drive away. While day camp can help  our children learn a better backhand in tennis, acquire a stronger stroke in swimming, or get in touch with nature, the true payoff of camp will be apparent when your child becomes a bit more self-reliant, self-sufficient, and self-confident.

I hope you love East Cobb as much as I do. In addition to helping our readers find things to do locally, and featuring the do-gooders in our community, I also promote small businesses and the value  they add to our local community. Since 1993, this magazine has been dedicated to supporting and promoting small businesses in our exceptional community of East Cobb County. This issue  exemplifies that mission — from our front cover feature, Julie Turner, who opened a beautiful boutique she wanted to see in her northeast cobb neighborhood to our advertisers who are mostly local entrepreneurs serving our community with their special set of skills and hard work. Locally owned businesses build strong communities by linking neighbors in a web of economic and social  relationships, and contributing to local causes.

I hope you join me on this journey to “Love Local” – follow me (and I’ll follow back too!) on any of my social media sites or get in touch with me directly if you think we could work together or if you know of any “hidden gems.” I’d love to hear from you!

Happy Spring!

March Publisher’s Note: Doing good in East Cobb County

Cynthia fall

With one of the highest household incomes in metro Atlanta, East Cobb County residents enjoy a reputation of living the “American Dream.” Drive around East Cobb and one cannot help but notice the expensive cars, subdivision after subdivision of lovely homes, beautifully landscaped lawns, and other symbols of wealth. For so many East Cobb residents, the “American Dream” also includes sharing their wealth, and/or their time to help others.

This edition of the EAST COBBER, as well as previous publications, features those East Cobbers that are giving back to their community and helping those in need. From high school student Robert Roper earning Eagle Scout status (page 7) to the nonprofit Right in the Community helping children with developmental disabilities (page 22) and Laine Liss, PTA Youth Services Chair sharing safety tips for prom (page 8 & 9). Our Club Calendar and Support Groups sections list many groups that come together on a regular basis to serve those in need whether it be a Moms Club or a service club.

It is so gratifying to hear that many of you have responded to EAST COBBER stories by donating money or signing up to volunteer or passing along information found in the EAST COBBER to help those in need. That is what this paper is all about! Consider it an “idea book” on how you can fulfill the “American Dream.”

All the best!

Publisher’s Note: Snowpocalypse 2014

2.11.14

I am writing my publisher’s letter during the aftermath of the now infamous Snowpocalypse 2014-a winter storm that dumped three inches of snow on metro Atlanta, iced roads, forced the cancellation of almost 800 flights, caused roughly 1,200  accidents, injured at least 130 people, killed two, wrecked countless commutes and stranded thousands in local schools and businesses. Stories of commuters’ struggles, politicians spinning, and Northerners mocking us abound. However, in the midst of this Snowjam, Metro Atlantans and East Cobbers demonstrated grit, Southern hospitality, ingenuity and/or experienced random acts of kindness.

As is always our intent here at the EAST COBBER, we shine a light on those doing good in the community. There are not enough pages to share all of the Snowmageddon stories, (not to mention I am past deadline and the February issue was already laid out for printing) but I felt it important to acknowledge the silver lining in this unprecedented Snowjam:

> To our Cobb County police, 911 operators and fire personnel who did their best to manage the chaos and keep us safe.

> Here’s to the commuters who got out of their gridlocked cars and walked miles and miles home.

> Heartfelt thanks to our schools’ staff members and bus drivers who went above and beyond to keep our students safe throughout the day and even through the night as some were unable to leave.

> Much gratitude to the schools, stores and churches that offered refuge for those who needed a break from the traffic, and in  some cases, overnight accommodations.

> To those East Cobb neighbors who were inspired to offer random acts of kindness—from passing out water and snacks at gridlocked street corners to those mom and dads that squeezed extra passengers in their cars so students wouldn’t be left at school.

> Kudos to East Cobber Michelle Sollicito who created SnowedOutAtlanta on Facebook. Her efforts connected those able to help to those in need. I was proud to see her get national acclaim for her efforts.

> Congratulations to East Cobber Amy Anderson who gave birth to a baby girl on an Atlanta highway during the winter storm
Tuesday. Amy’s husband, Nick, is a lacrosse coach at Pope High School.

East Cobb County is such a great place to live because it is filled with great people as the above list exemplifies. Snowpocalypse gave us an opportunity show what we are made of East Cobb. And, every issue of the EAST COBBER magazine is another opportunity to relish in all that goodness that goes on around us every day-not just in a Snowjam.

I heart East Cobb!

Publisher’s Note: ‘Tis the Season!

Rozzo headshot

‘Tis the season to celebrate miracles—Hanukkah and Christmas. Though this holiday season is one of the most magical times of the year for children, many of us often find the season to be stressful. I hope by reading this issue of the EAST COBBER you are giving yourself a break from the holiday rush. You can get some gift-giving ideas on pages 18-21 in our annual gift guide.

The merchants mentioned are in our own backyard so that should make your shopping a little easier. Please check them out, you’ll be  awed and inspired by the gift selections they offer.

When the going gets really tough, another stressbuster is eating out. The Dining Guide on pages 38-43 should give you a short-list of local restaurants that you can enjoy with friends and family during the holiday season—or to just simply enjoy while giving yourself a break from the busyness of the season!

As always, this issue includes stories about the good people that share their “gifts” making East Cobb (and beyond) a better place to live. From Scott Feight, founder of the Foundation for Hospital Art to Drs. Azita and Michael Mansouri who coordinated a free dentistry day, I hope you, EAST COBBER reader, are inspired by their “gift”-giving and may be more inspired to share your “gift” for a better East Cobb and beyond. And if you already are contributing to the quality of life here in East Cobb, let me share your story, too! Just give me call or e-mail the EAST COBBER.

For me, the best presents I’ll receive this holiday season can’t be wrapped. Of course, the best gifts are my three healthy children. And another favorite present is the joy of being able to work on this paper every month for such a great community. It’s a gift I’m thankful for not just during the holidays but everyday.

Happy Holidays!

Publisher’s November Note: Giving Thanks for your Stories

23

Cynthia with Sgt. Gardner and Detective O’Neal at the first annual Public Safety Celebration Dinner which honored the officers and staff of East Cobb’s Precinct IV.

Much has been written about the first Thanksgiving regarding the brave band of people who landed in Plymouth to start a new, better world for themselves, their families and for future generations. Well, this month, like every edition, the EAST COBBER features a brave band of people making a better life for others right here in East Cobb, right now. In this edition, you can read about the East Cobb Teachers of the Year (page 6), leaders from different faiths coming together for a special ecumenical celebration (page 8), and the “Friends” group (page 12) —to name just a few East Cobb “pilgrims”.

We also share some photos from two special events held here in East Cobb: the first annual Public Safety Celebration (page 54) and the Pope High School’s Foundation Fundraiser (page 62). All of these East Cobbers spotlighted are our modernday Pilgrims. Many, if not most, have been transplanted to this area and are determined to help build a better world right here in East Cobb.

Sharing their stories is my way to give thanks for their earnest efforts to better our East Cobb community. I hope you will consider the EAST COBBER your Thanksgiving table. This publication unearths the riches of East Cobb County and shares the harvest of stories with you. Every month I hope you’ll sit down with an EAST COBBER and feast on the information and ideas contained in this publication, take time to appreciate the many blessings bestowed on East Cobb and share your good times with your neighbors, family, and friends.

Remember, you are always welcome to “break bread” with us year-round.
Happy Thanksgiving!

Thank you East Cobb for most memorable Parade yet! Check out our Parade photos and find your family!

20130920-DSC_5600

Look for your photo in our our Parade archives here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/56198322@N04/sets/72157635921976104/with/9954680943/.

Despite grey skies and near constant rain, Saturday’s EAST COBBER Parade was the most memorable of the 18 parades I have produced. It may have rained on our Parade, but you’d never have known it watching the participants. I was overwhelmed by the support and hometown spirit displayed by the East Cobb community on Saturday.

Despite a less than ideal forecast, nearly all of the scheduled Parade entrants arrived on time and ready to participate. We weren’t sure what to expect crowd-wise, but from the opening banner to the last car, the route was filled with East Cobbers cheering and enjoying the special event.

The Parade participants were incredible- smiling, throwing candy and clearly enjoying themselves until the very end. It was a fantastic sight to see.

And of course, the Parade and Festival would not be possible without the support of the corporate sponsors, including Wellstar and The Fountains at Old Towne shopping center. We appreciate our sponsors so much.

The East Cobb community has embraced the Parade and Festival each year and that community spirit, that sense of pride, is just one more reason that I Heart East Cobb!

Thank you East Cobbers for the another great event!

Cynthia

Take the Plunge: Go Visit Wilderness at the Smokies Resort

44

EAST COBBER Founder/Publisher Cynthia Rozzo shares a recent travel adventure with her tween daughter and several friends: 

 

A couple of months ago, I wrote a travel story about a “girls getaway” to New Orleans. That was with a “grownup” girlfriend. Well, this travel story involves teenage and tweenage girls getting away for spring break. My 12-year-old daughter had heard her girlfriends were going to Wilderness at the Smokies, a year-round waterpark resort in Sevierville,
Tennessee.

As my daughter, Eleni, excitedly noted: ”It’s the largest indoor waterpark in Tennessee!” How could I NOT go?? So, with a couple of days of free time and a tinge of guilt to provide a vacation for my daughter during spring break (my boys were not interested), I took off for the Smoky Mountains with five girls and another brave mom.

The resort has three properties: The River Lodge (attached to the indoor waterpark), Stone Hill Lodge (a free shuttle ride away from the indoor waterpark) and a Wyndam Timeshare property. You don’t have to be a timeshare owner or look at a timeshare to stay there. We stayed in a two bedroom deluxe unit at the River Lodge building which connects to the Wild Water Dome indoor waterpark and Lake Wilderness outdoor waterpark which had just opened for the season. As much as the girls wanted to jump in the outdoor pool, we had to check-in, get our wristbands (for pool access) and settle in our 2-bedroom deluxe room. The cost of the room includes the waterpark admission. So the price might seem high but if you add the cost of typical waterpark admission, it is fairly affordable.

Our unit was designed with multi-families in mind with one bedroom having a king-bed and partial wall and a bunkbed. Within the bedroom itself, there is also a sofa bed, small fridge and a microwave. The tween girls had fun climbing up and down the bunk bed and staked out that side of the unit.

The kitchen, dining room and a sofa bed was in the middle of the two sleeping areas. The two teenage girls in our group
claimed the sofa bed/living room area. My fellow travel mom and I ended up in the connecting room each sleeping in our own double bed. The resort reminded me of Disney World’s Animal Kingdom Lodge with natural accents and a  woodsy atmosphere that compliments the Great Smoky Mountain views. The accommodations were efficiently laid out and made for a comfortable one night stay.

Wilderness at the Smokies has an intricate web of both indoor and outdoor aquatic activities. The girls couldn’t get to the outdoor water park, “Lake Wilderness” fast enough! This mini outdoor park contains an elaborate lazy river complete
with waterfalls and gentle waves and a mini golf course.

They also checked out Salamander Springs, the larger of the two outdoor parks. This park has a large swimming pool complete with aquatic basketball, two slides, a large play area with a bucket that spills every few minutes, dumping 1,000 gallons of water on anyone within its reach, and another large hot tub.

Then it was time for them to run to the indoor park, dubbed the “Wild Water Dome.” The indoor, 7-acre waterpark
is open year round and houses the majority of the resort’s main attractions –the waterslides. It also houses the giant wave pool, several large play areas, and Magnolia Springs (an indoor/outdoor hot tub comprised of several private coves) to name a few. There are two water playground areas, one designed for preschoolers, toddlers and infants with swings, small slides, a teeter totter, and plenty of splashy things to keep them entertained. The other is a larger play area with all kinds of spraying, splashing, and water-dumping machines, as well as two small water slides. The best part of these two areas: ample seating. My travel mom and I relaxed and actually had a conversation. The girls had to try the “SurfRider” attraction, a huge pressure generated wave where park guests can body board or surf.

We had to pull the girls away from enjoying the water and sit them down for dinner. There are six restaurants on-site. The sit-down restaurants offer ‘kids eat free,’ specials which we took advantage of for dinner at The Thirsty Miner, a  restaurant overlooking the indoor waterpark. The buffet offered plenty of the popular foods kids enjoy: fried chicken, soup, mashed potatoes, mac-n-cheese so everyone in our group had something to eat.

After dinner, the girls enjoyed the two-story arcade that has floor to ceiling attractions. Below you can find any arcade game you can imagine and if you look up, you will see a web of challenging rope courses. The arcade also contains a laser tag room and mini bowling alley.

Sleep was squeezed in at some point—in between the pool closing times. The next morning the girls woke up early to race around the resort for more swim adventures before we had to check out.

The Wilderness at the Smokies resort is located in Sevierville about 20 minutes from downtown Gatlinburg which we also checked out. Wilderness in the Smokies is a great location for girlfriends and families to enjoy a quick getaway. The property offers several gift shops, convenience stories, a pottery studio, mini-golf and a 36-hole championship golf course. So, take the plunge and go visit Wilderness at the Smokies resort.

Publisher’s Note: My father my hero

23

I am fortunate to have a father who made time for me while I was growing up. Like a lot of fathers, he may never “go down in history” nor did he make a lot of money, but his quiet and steadfast love for his family combined with his humble acts of helping others, caring for the community, a deep faith in God, encouraging me to always do my best and his strong patriotism are priceless gifts that influence who I am and what I do to this day. Now that I (and my very helpful husband ) are raising three children, I am keenly aware of these values he instilled in me and try my best to teach them by example.

In this world of hype and celebrity, many young men and women (and older,too!) are searching for a role model. Many of us are lucky to have role models within reach and that we can truly be inspired. Moms and dads are the most obvious heroes for us to emulate. This publication is happy to grant these often overlooked, ordinary folks a few minutes of fame. Hence, the annual essay contests and photos of other East Cobb residents that contribute to our quality of life are happily published in the EAST COBBER. The people featured in this edition—from G.W. Hall, the EAST COBBER’s Dad of the Year (see page 8) to the Hot Widows (see page 10) to Shirley Dobbins, Cobb County’s Senior Citizen of the Year (see page 58) —all are excellent examples of role models right here in our own backyards, within our reach. There’s a lot of “good” we can learn from our parents, friends, and fellow East Cobbers. I hope after reading this edition, like every edition, you will not only learn a little bit more about what is going on in our community but also be inspired by the people that make East Cobb such a great place to live!

Have a great summer!
