Roswell Restaurants Bring to the Table

More than Great Food

T

Emma Vincola, Roswell Inc, Communications Intern

The City of Roswell

is home to dozens of unique and successful restaurants. These restaurants not only fulfill a basic need, but also provide a special place for social interaction and significantly impact the local economy on multiple levels. In an ever changing world, restaurants are a consistent and reliable resource for the community. This industry thrives in Roswell’s unique culture, which in turn creates a hub of quality, independent restaurants within the city. On a national level, 82% of Americans now live in urban areas. This drastic migration of people represents more mouths to feed. Restaurants are a social hub many people rely on for connection and entertainment. They provide the personal attention people crave and encourage face-to-face interaction, even in a world where fast moving technology has drastically altered how we meet and do business. A larger, hungry population to feed meansrestaurants will thrive in these areas. Not only are they community gathering places, but restau-

rants are key economic drivers and contribute to a strong, skilled workforce. They are consistently creating new jobs and providing a reliable environment for employees to build their careers. Over the next few years, it will be more important than ever to make the restaurant industry a more stable environment for employees to build and expand their skills. In addition, restaurants are prevented from globalizing and finding cheaper labor overseas because of the time limit for delivering food to customers. Therefore, more dollars are spent locally on supplies, labor and ingredients. City planning, neighborhood development and quality real estate are built and designed around areas with well-knownrestaurants because they are such an important aspect of economic development. Quality restaurants directly effect almost every aspect of the local economy, including tourism and property values. It is an industry where boundaries can be pushed and creativity can flourish, but the basic formula doesn't often change and can be relied upon. It is a mutually beneficial relationship that will show dividends for years to come.

By Jessica Diamond, Roswell Inc, Communications Coordinator

At the recent 24th

looking for a higher quality of life.

Annual Roswell Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) & Roswell Inc Board of Directors Dinner and Community Awards, Roswell Inc was proud to present their 2014 Annual Report Card, as well as recognize some community leaders who have done exceptional work in Roswell in recent years.

After presenting the awards, Roswell Inc presented a report of their most recent numbers. As of December 31, 2014, Roswell is home to more than 5,477 businesses. This number includes everything from the home based entrepreneurs to the major corporations. Last year alone, 542 new businesses licenses were issued.

This year, Roswell Inc distributed two awards to two exceptional professionals who are doing great work in the field of economic development.

Roswell’s Opportunity Zone (OZ) has been a huge draw for Roswell, promoting job creation and utilizing tax incentives to help businesses succeed. Roswell Inc has personally assisted in the OZ Certification process. To date, there are over 180 businesses in the OZ. In 2014, this incentive helped create more than 1,345 jobs. The vacancy rates for office space in these areas has significantly reduced. Within the OZ, vacancy rates have reduced from 14.9% in 2013 to 12.8% in 2014. Vacancy outside of the OZ has reduced as well, from 12.8% to 11.3% in the last year.

The Young Professional of the Year award went to the president of Lehigh Homes, Brendan Walsh. His achievements include the impressive Providence neighborhood, a community of townhomes behind Canton Street, as well as serving on the board of Roswell NEXT as one of its founding members.Brendan pushed the envelope with his company to focus on creating urban atmosphere and connectivity. Because of projects like his, people in Roswell have the ability to live closer to where they work and play. His energy and passion are helping push Roswell into the future. The economic development award went to Lennar Multifamily Communities, represented by Chris Cassidy. This company is responsible for Roswell City Walk on Frazier St. It’s an honor for a company like Lennar to invest so much time, money and vision into Roswell. This $46 million endeavor is a showcase for the kind of community Roswell is growing into. These luxury condos provide much needed housing for the variety of skilled professionals who come here

Roswell Inc continues to encourage quality development and redevelopment of properties around town. Last year, 182 construction permits were issued with a combined value of $77,884,151. It was a proud and productive year from Roswell Inc and they will be launching new programs and events in late 2015 - so stay tuned!

Need to get away? Plan your great escape but don’t stop with sightseeing! Soak in some art and culture along with a little massage oil. Drink in the lively atmosphere of award winning Canton Street while sampling regional reds and whites. Don’t wait for a special occasion — make one in Roswell, Georgia (just 20 minutes north of Atlanta).

Ladies, I think you’ll agree that sometimes we just dream of getting away from the day-to-day: jobs, household chores, team practices, the alarm clock. Sometimes, more than anything, we long for shopping — antiques, boutiques and uniques with a sidewalk café thrown in. Or art gallery hopping, historic home tours and a day at the spa.

Historical PERSPECTIVE

“The more you know about the past, the better prepared you are for the future.” Theodore Roosevelt

R

Roswell Becomes a Town

In 1828, gold was found in north Georgia, thus causing a swarm of settlers to the area, especially Dahlonega and Auraria. It was this activity that prompted Roswell King of Darien, Georgia to investigate the sites. Traveling on horseback, Mr. King followed Indian trails to the Chattahoochee River near what is now Roswell. Following the river, Mr. King discovered vast forests and the rushing waters of Vickery (Vickery’s) Creek. These natural resources inspired him to envision a mill, powered by the water, and a community close by. In 1838, he began work on the first cotton mill and in 1839 it was incorporated as The Roswell Manufacturing Company. The company was extremely successful and expanded. Even a flouring mill was constructed. Orders for cloth, tenting, rope, flannels, and yarn poured in. Mr. King offered home sites and investment opportunities to his friends and associates from coastal Georgia and a community was built. They constructed magnificent homes for themselves, cottages and apartments for mill workers, a general store near the mill, a church, and an academy to attend to the educational needs of the children. Before Roswell King’s wife, Catherine, could move from Darien, she died, never seeing the town that would be named for her husband. Roswell King died in 1844. Their son, Barrington King, and his wife, Catherine Nephew King, worked to carry on his father’s dream. There were several distinct styles of life in Roswell …. the prominent families, the mill workers who often labored 11-hour days, and the slaves. The issues of slavery and states

rights would have a major impact on the town of Roswell. Secession of Georgia from the Union took place in January of 1861. By 1861, Roswell families, who could afford to do so, gathered as many personal possessions as possible, and began to refugee to safer areas. The Union cavalry, under the command of Brigadier General Kenner Garrard, arrived in Roswell on July 5, 1864. Retreating Confederate soldiers burned the covered bridge at the Chattahoochee River in order to slow the Union’s advancement. However, there was a river crossing called Shallowford (located on today’s Azalea Drive at the River Park). At Shallowford, in those early years, the river was only about waist deep. It was here that Union troops crossed the river. The fighting that took place involved the Spencer repeating rifle. This was the first time in U.S. History a rifle was used successfully under water during armed conflict. Theophile Roche, a French citizen, had been employed by the cotton mills and later the woolen mill. In an attempt to save the mills, he flew a French flag in hopes of claiming neutrality. However, the letters CSA (Confederate States of America) were found on cloth being produced. For two days the mill was spared, but

locallifepublishing.com • roswell magazine summer 2015

on July 7, after it was proven that the neutrality claim was false, General Sherman ordered everyone connected with the mill to be charged with treason. The nearby cotton mill was also destroyed. Mill workers, most women and children since the men were fighting the war, were arrested, charged with treason and sent north to uncertain fates. One of the women involved in this tragedy was pregnant and working as a seamstress at the mill. She was sent north to Chicago, and left to fend for herself. It would take five years before she and her daughter would return, on foot, to Roswell, only to find that her husband had remarried because he thought she was dead. Although the mills were destroyed, the magnificent homes and church were not. After the War, families returned to Roswell and began to pick up the pieces of their lives. The mills were rebuilt and the textile industry once again became a strong part of Roswell’s economy, until 1975.

Currently, supplies are low and demand is high, so sellers are getting top dollar for their homes with favorable terms. Property values continue to increase so that sellers have more equity in their homes and there is a pent-up demand of ready, willing and able buyers for homes under $1,000,000 In spite of the low inventory, not every home will sell. Price, condition, and marketing all play a role in getting a home sold. These 5 simple yet effective spring cleaning tips can prepare your home for sale and give you the edge over other sellers: 1. DeClutter – give the illusion of space & allow buyers to envision themselves there. 2. Clean your windows & let the sun shine in. 3. Make your Kitchen & Baths white glove clean. 4. Sniff out smells & say goodbye to bad odors. 5. Trim lawn and trees. Make first impressions count! 6. If you’re considering selling, now is the time to “spring into action” and take advantage of the current market conditions.

ROW ROW ROW

ON THE CHATTAHOOCHEE RIVER By Claire Murphy

AJRA Boathouse is located at 245 Azalea Drive, Roswell The mission of the Atlanta Junior Rowing Association is to engage high school athletes in the Olympic sport of rowing, instill and enhance the athlete’s self-esteem, self-discipline, team reliance and fitness, and to provide a competitve athletic experience. AJRA seeks to foster personal growth among area middle/high school athletes through the sport of competitive rowing. INFORMATION COURTESY OF ATLANTA JR ROWING ASSOCIATION, (AJRA). VISIT AJRACREW.COM TO LEARN MORE

Atlanta Junior Rowing

Association was founded in 1988 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit club sport dedicated to providing rowing opportunities for high school students throughout Metro Atlanta. The program started as a small club rowing out of the Atlanta Rowing Club’s boathouse. By the late 1990s, AJRA had grown so much that it needed its own boathouse. In the fall of 2000, the club negotiated with the City of Roswell to construct a boathouse at its present address on Azalea Drive. AJRA has since grown in size and today has more than 200 rowers from middle schools and high schools throughout the Atlanta area. Celebrating its 28th year of rowing on the Chattahoochee with the 2015-16 season, AJRA is the largest and most successful high school rowing program in Georgia. High schools represented include Roswell, Walton, Johns Creek, Milton, Cambridge, Northview, Pope, Centennial, Milton, Galloway, Alpharetta, Blessed Trinity, Mount Vernon, Westminster, Woodward and many others. ABOUT ROWING Rowing is a centuries-old sport steeped in tradition, which trac-

24

es its origins back to ancient times. The beginnings of the modern version of the sport date to the early 18th century, when rowing saw the creation of the two most historic races in the sport: the Oxford-Cambridge boat race in 1829 and the Henley Royal Regatta in 1839. As an Olympic sport, rowing was slated to take place in the first modern Olympics in Athens in 1896, but due to bad weather, did not make its first appearance until the Paris Olympics in 1900. In recent times, rowing has seen a tremendous surge in popularity at both the high school and college levels. The teamwork and camaraderie involved in the sport at every level continue to foster friendships and still remain the main reasons for the popularity of the sport. Rowing is about striving for individual excellence and striving to achieve as a group of athletes. Rowers push themselves and each other – with a lot of help from great coaches and strong coxswains The coxswain of a boat is pivotal to building a superior team. Rowing is a year-long sport that consists of three basic seasons: fall, winter, and spring. Fall races are called head races and generally take place on rivers. Head races are three to five kilometers long, which means a rower typically races for

15 to 25 minutes. Head racing is a timed event with each boat starting approximately 30 seconds apart. The boat with the fastest time wins. The winter season is about conditioning. Practices are spent training indoors on a rowing machine called the ergometer. In recent years, indoor ergometer events have become popular during the winter season. The Atlanta Erg sprints are held at Georgia Tech each year which is a fun competition to bridge our seasons with. Spring races are called sprint races. They are usually rowed on a buoyed, six-lane course. Sprint races are 1500 and 2000 meters in length — all six boats start at the same time, and the first locallifepublishing.com • roswell magazine spring 2015

Date Night

down the road By Claire Murphy

P

DATE NIGHT – ROSWELL STYLE Pick her up at 5pm. Drive over to Roswell Mill for a little fresh air and local scenery. Take a leisurely stroll around the Mill, Covered Bridge and Vickery Creek. This bridge was constructed in 2005 to connect Old Mill Park and the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area, just across the creek. The National Park property contains Allenbrook, an antebellum home constructed between 1845-1857. visitroswellga.com/what-to-do Walk across the street and request a table for two at the Mill Kitchen and Bar. Their outdoor patio is spectacular, even in the summer when the big, stone fireplace is not necessary. Hopefully you will have to wait for a table because we hear the drinks at the bar are the best mixed in Roswell. Order what you want; but we suggest you try their Jalapeno Potato Cakes topped with North Carolina’s BBQ Roasted Pork and the “grown in their very own garden” Breakfast Radish Piccadilly. Although their desserts are amazing, skip dessert and skip over to Canton Street for an extra special treat. themillkitchenandbar.com The Pie Hole bakes great pies using fresh ingredients and no preservatives. Stop by for an after-dinner slice 1025 Canton Street. We recommend the Grasshopper Pie, spiked with Crème de Menthe and White Crème de Cocoa! openyourpiehole.com

BLESSED TRINITY Titans Capture GHSA Golf State Title

Blessed Trinity’s golf team captures the state Class AAA title at Brookfield Country Club, the Titans’ home course. barter is smarter than you think...

When the bill came it was paid with a Big Green Egg … that’s how barter works. Imagine running your business and paying your bills with trade rather than cash. Thousands of businesses right here in Metro Atlanta are doing just that, including The Mad Hatter, a local chimney sweep service and outdoor living company.

“Before I reach for my wallet, I call The Barter Company,” explained Kevin Sparks, owner of The Mad Hatter Service Company. “Nine times out of ten they have a product or service I need. I’ve traded for office furniture, carpeting, painting, printing, advertising, and travel services. If I hadn’t traded my company’s services for those things I would have had to pay for those out-of-pocket.”

34

The Barter Company is a recognized leader in the barter industry with offices in Georgia and Florida. The company provides businesses with an alternative currency network using barter dollars instead of cash to handle transactions. The Barter Company actively manages the network and acts as a third-party records keeper by providing clients with monthly statements. Trade coordinators work with individual member businesses to make the barter experience simple and smooth. For more information, visit www.thebartercompany.com or call 770-591-4343.

I’ve said it many

times before: I am a picky eater. When I go out to eat, it’s pretty normal for me to only see one or two things on a menu that I am interested in ordering. It’s a curse, really — but it makes for a pretty quick decision! So when I go to a restaurant and actually see multiple dishes that I like, I get pretty excited. Such was the case at Nosh Table & Tap in Roswell. Pork or fish tacos, gyros, chicken and waffles, rasta pasta, pig and grits, about half of a dozen different salads,the “Ricky Ricardo,” “The Hasselhoff,” a daily soup, and their own house made Nosh chips with dipping sauces you have to try. Check out their full menu for yourself to see the variety (and have a chuckle over some of the unique names for their dishes)! The Nosh portion of the restaurant is open now, but they are working on building out location next door to become the Tap for a bar-like setting. Nosh Table and Tap has a very warm, welcoming and family friendly atmosphere, while still feeling upscale. The staff was very welcoming and informative. With a menu like theirs, we will be sure to go back since I will be able to get something different every time — which is such a rarity for me! If you haven’t been yet, give them a try. And tell them Scoop sent you! Nosh Table & Tap is located at 11255 Woodstock Road in Roswell. Visit noshatl.com to learn more.

Findlay Rowe Gifts & Florist Findlay Rowe Designs is definitely a hidden gem. With everything from floral arrangements to home decor and unique products, this is a great one-stop-shop for gifts. The store’s owners Audrey and Barbara are two sisters who left their corporate careers to follow their passion. As soon as you walk into Findlay Rowe, you can tell they care about each piece they select. They also really want to help you find the perfect gift or create the best floral arrangement for your situation, especially weddings.

They carry popular brand name gifts as well, such as Lilly Pulitzer, Simply Southern T-Shirts, Coton Colors Platters, Bourbon & Boweties jewelry and more. Be sure to tell them Scoop sent you!

GOLF CART

Beginning July 1, a new Roswell law goes into effect allowing golf carts on some public roads within the city.

far from your mind this time of year, but the need to protect your home, cars, family and business doesn’t end when the weather gets warm. In fact, summer brings specific insurance needs, and recent changes in Roswell mean it may pay to review your coverage.

Summertime also means bringing out all your other warm-weather toys, such as boats, RVs, campers, motorcycles, jet skis and ATVs. It’s no fun to think about accidents, but the fact is, if the unexpected occurs, do you have enough coverage to protect you and your family?

For one, if you own a golf cart, you can enjoy using it outside your community beginning July 1, when a new law allowing carts on designated public streets in the City of Roswell takes effect. Once confined to golf course communities, golf carts may be driven on public roadways with posted speeds limits of 25 mph or less.

Personal liability insurance can cover you if an accident happens that costs more than your primary insurance limits. It also can fill in other coverage gaps, such as those for libel, slander or defamation of character, international claims and attorney fees.

Your cart must be outfitted as per Georgia law, including such safety equipment as a reverse warning system, reflectors, horns, hip restraints or seat belts, and brake lights if you intend to drive at night. You must register your cart with the city and pay a $15 fee once every five years. And, of course, your cart must be properly insured.

A FEW TIPS FOR

DEVELOPING A

SHORT GAME

A

By BILL BARKLEY, Lifetime PGA Pro and Master Golf Instructor

A golfer serious about lowering scores should develop a reliable short game, which includes putting, chipping pitching, bunker shots and lob shots. Spin and height of trajectory influence results. For example, putts and chips are ideally played with overspin. The stroke is a rhythmic back and forth on line movement. The hands lead the clubhead back with a cupped left wrist, causing a slightly closed clubface. The hands again lead the clubhead forward with a cupped right wrist that squares the clubface. The force of a smooth pull through impact determines distance. The hands are slightly ahead of the ball at address, de-lofting the clubface. There is a slight up and down on-line pendulum path, with the clubhead leveling slightly behind the ball to meet the ball on the upswing with a de-lofted clubface to impart over-spin. Memory plays an important part in a sense of distance. One way to develop a sense of distance is to repeatedly putt a ball to a given distance, and then putt another ball a few feet further, remembering the difference. Memory plays an important role related to ‘reading the green.’ One reads the green prior to stroking a putt or chip and considers how to break, grain and slope to influence results. Over time and considerable practice, one memorizes subtle body movements and feeling. Another factor determining the level of skill is visualization. A golfer learns to ‘see’ the line, and responds with precise body and mental alignment. What is felt intuitively registers a given distance with a corresponding required level of force. The act of seeing a positive result vicariously, prior to stroking a putt or chip, enhances confidence and results. The key to most bunker shots and lob shots is to develop a stroke that imparts height and back-spin. Rather than de-lofting the clubface with the hands ahead of the clubhead, these two shots are played with an extreme laid back or lofted clubface. The palm of the right hand faces the sky at address and through impact. The clubhead swings down and under the ball with the palm of the right hand facing upward. The ball lands softly with little or no roll.

What’s the number one goal

of most of my clients at SFX in Roswell? Lose weight, especially around the middle. Ladies want a tighter tummy. Guys seek a flatter stomach and the sought-after six pack. So how do you get those fitness magazine abs? I’m going to let you in on a secret. Skip the sit-ups. Don’t waste your time doing cardio. Eat whatever you want. There’s just one simple trick (insert sarcasm): drink three ounces of lemon juice with all of your meals. It’s that easy. You see, lemon juice is highly acidic. The citric acid cuts through bodyfat like a hot knife through butter, melting away fat from your midsection. Isn’t the sour taste a small price to pay for getting that sexy six-pack? Now, here’s the bitter truth… If you think that lemon juice is going to help define your abs, I’ve got some ocean-front property in Atlanta to sell to you. Let’s get this straight. There is no quick fix. No miracle pill. No magical fat-burning wrap. No miraculous Seven-Minute Workout. The quick fix solution is foolish for any exercise program, but

locallifepublishing.com • roswell magazine summer 2015

it’s especially true of abdominals. The only way you’re going to see a ripple in your abs is through – in order - diet, cardio and blasting those abs in the gym. Despite the lemon juice lie, it is true that you don’t need to do a lot of sit-ups. They’re okay in moderation, but your ab routine should consist of a lot more rotational moves with a cable, resistance band or medicine ball. Those exercises, done on your feet, are far more functional, leading to a leaner body and trimmer waistline. Like sit-ups, long distance cardio is over-rated. Keep your running time under 30 minutes, but include some intervals, not just slow, steady state. Increased intensity will thrust you into EPOC – Excess Post-Exercise Oxygen Consumption. Reach that zone and your metabolism revs higher for up to 48 hours. Diet accounts for about 70% of your results. You have to drop the sugary snacks and fat-laden chips and dips. Limit alcohol consumption. Include protein with EVERY meal. To process protein your body burns additional calories and it lowers the spike in blood sugar levels that carbs can cause. “Diet” comes down to making smart, informed choices and moderation. You won’t change your body without making sacrifices. You need to make better choices and do it CONSISTENTLY – not just before your high school reunion, a wedding or a trip to the Bahamas.

“Lucky,” is the inspiration for Roswell’s LUCKY’S BURGER & BREW. Lucky can often be seen spending his afternoon cooling off on the patio at the dog-friendly restaurant, enjoying a burger and his favorite beverage. He wants to remind Roswell to leave your pets at home rather than in the hot car.

Protect Our Pets

H

DOG DAYS OF SUMMER

Hot and humid conditions

will last through September, and it is important to remember to protect our pets from the heat in these final “dog days” of summer. There have been numerous incidents of good Samaritans calling 911 to rescue dogs left inside hot cars around Roswell. Normal temperature for dogs averages 101.5F. If their temperature is over 105F, they can suffer from “heat stroke.” When a dog is overheated, it cannot sweat to cool itself like people do. They rely on panting to help decrease their body temperature. When the outside temperature keeps rising, panting cannot help them. Dogs can get overheated in many ways: 1) Left outside without shade and water on a hot day. Remember that shade changes throughout the day. If dogs are attached to a tether, they could either get tangled and not be able to reach shade, or the shade can move beyond their reach. Water bowls can be knocked over. Make sure to take precautions, and ideally leave them inside with A/C.

windows doesn’t help. Many responsible, loving dog owners have had their dogs die from heat stroke because they thought they were leaving them in the car “for just a minute”. Some dogs are inadvertently forgotten. I have a veterinary friend that changed her routine one morning and forgot that she had two sleeping dogs in the back seat. Tragically, they both died. If you are taking your dogs with you in the car, make sure to leave a reminder of them in the front seat with you near your purse/ cell phone/briefcase. Seeing a leash or dog toy before you leave the car will remind you that you have a sleeping dog in the back seat. 4) Exercising your dog on a hot, humid day. It is best to run with your dogs and play with them in the yard during cooler times of day. If the pavement is hot to touch, it is not a good time. Make sure they always have access to shade and water and watch for signs that they are getting tired or overheated. 5) Breed predispositions. Certain breeds are more likely to get heat stroke. Brachycephalic (short-nosed) dogs like Bulldogs, Pugs, Boston Terriers, and Lhasa Apsos cannot pant as effectively as other dogs.

2) Left inside without A/C on. Dogs have died in hot houses because the A/C was left off or turned down on a hot day. Small, enclosed spaces without good ventilation are also a problem.

6) Underlying medical conditions. Overweight dogs, and those with heart conditions or breathing problems will overheat more quickly.

3) Left inside a car. The car’s temperature can reach over 117F even on a 72F day! Studies repeatedly show that cracking the

Early signs of heat exhaustion are excessive panting, drooling, and looking agitated. As the temperature rises and they start experiencing heat stroke they can collapse, have bright red,

How to help your dog: 1) Get him away from the heat and into shade or A/C 2) Cool her down. Rinse her in cool water and place wet towels on her armpits and stomach. Put her near a fan. 3) Offer cool water if he is alert, but do not force him to drink. 4) Get them ASAP to the closest veterinarian. What NOT to do? 1) Do NOT use ice water.

her worse. 2) Don’t cool him off too much. If his temperature goes down below 103F when you are cooling him off, it can keep dropping and he can get hypothermic. 3) Don’t avoid going to the veterinarian. Even if your dog seems better, she can have severe internal problems and should always be examined by your vet. Dr Jennifer Ferrell graduated from the University of Florida veterinary school in 1999. She practiced as a Veterinarian until 2008, when she had children. She remains active in continuing education, volunteering veterinary care to local charities and writing about veterinary topics. 47

P hysical therapy (P T)

in Georgia will be entering a new era starting July 1st, 2015 due to the new direct access law that was passed this Spring by the Georgia state legislature. This law, known as HR505, will allow Georgia PTs to practice more autonomously and become primary caregivers to Georgia residents. The road to direct access in Georgia has been long and passionately opposed by some healthcare providers. Fortunately, there was a small group of devoted PTs that worked tirelessly, staying focused on the long-term goal of greater consumer access to healthcare. What does a PT really do, and why is direct access important for Georgia? There are lot of misconceptions and general lack of public knowledge about the profession. According to the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA), a PT is a highly trained, licensed professional that can help reduce pain and improve or restore mobility. They perform in-depth assessments and evaluations to develop treatment plans and goals for the patients’ impairments.

PTs are educated and trained to treat patients from birth to adult. A few of the places PTs practice includes: schools, factories, hospitals, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, home health, outpatient clinics, work settings, wheelchair seating clinics, and sports/fitness facilities. PTs are movement experts as they are trained to evaluate muscle strength, posture, flexibility, gait, balance, fall risk, imbalance, asymmetry, range of motion, sensation, pain patterns, ergonomics, and biomechanics. Prevention and wellness is another area PTs can serve as great assets to Georgia residents. There is strong research from the medical community that solidifies how important PTs can be to all age groups. One example is the active adult population. They want to play golf and tennis, work out at the gym, swim, travel, run, walk and volunteer. PTs are well-trained at preventing loss of function and reducing pain/fall risk so mature adults can maintain the active lifestyles they enjoy. The passing of HR505 allows Georgia residents to seek out PT evaluations and treatment without physician referrals. Based on research in other states with direct access, this has resulted in reduced healthcare costs. Direct access to physical therapy for Georgia has the potential to improve quality of life for all residents.

Low Level Laser Therapy (Cold Laser)

Low level laser or Cold laser is a fairly new and accepted form of treatment for many different injuries or symptoms. Most people think that a laser is used to cut or damage tissue. However, low level laser therapy (LLLT) is a laser light that generates no heat or thermal effects. Instead of causing cellular damage, the LLLT causes cellular repair and healing, at a rapid rate. Laser is an acronym for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. A true laser is both monochromatic (single color wavelength) and coherent (wavelengths in-phase). Although all levels of light can have biological effect, most laser research suggests that the most advantageous levels of stimulation for healing purposes occur in a very specific range for optimal wavelength for cellular repair. There are several mechanisms involved that demonstrate why the laser has been so successful. At the cellular level, the laser stimulates collagen fiber production and protein synthesis. Increased ATP production by the mitochondria, which are the powerhouse of each cell, is noted. With more energy, and increased oxygen consumption, the cell may utilize this fuel to operate and function at a higher level and repair faster. Changes in cell membrane permeability allow increased nutrients into the cell. Improved blood circulation and increased lymphatic flow aid in removal of inflammation and edema. These cellular changes help to heal the cells, therefore

decreasing pain. The LLLT also reduces pain with direct neurological involvement. Homeostatic balance, with the calcium (Ca+), sodium (Na+) and potassium (K+) ions, is restored across the cell membrane of the nerve cell. This leads to increased action potential, increased endorphins (powerful natural pain relievers), and decreased bradychinines (chemical irritants) levels. The FDA has recognized and approved LLLT treatment. We have utilized a 635nm Low Level Laser to successfully treat carpel tunnel syndrome, sciatica, low back pain, disc issues, headaches, sinus conditions, broken bones, tennis elbow, ACL/knee injuries, plantar fascitis, wound healing, vascular problems and various other joint and muscular injuries. To increase the therapeutic benefit and success (greater than 91%) of both acute and chronic conditions, we also employ a process called Neurological Stacking. This involves treating the nerves that supply the area of injury at several levels. Tracing the nerve back to the spine and brain links the healing process for better, faster results. This painless treatment has no known side effects; however it should not be used directly in the eyes. Benefits are seen in all ages. Speed of recovery is dependent on the amount of tissue damage and to some extent, patient age. In summary, Low Level Laser Therapy is a remarkable tool for many health issues or injuries. When performed with a systematic, logical and thorough approach, the results are often life changing.

Big Creek Park Freeride Area is a City of Roswell park with trails maintained by the Roswell-Alpharetta Mountain Biking Organization.

The Roswell/Alpharetta Mountain Biking Organiza-

tion (RAMBO) Chapter of the Southern Off Road Biking Association (SORBA) is a volunteer organization dedicated to improving off road biking recreational opportunities through advocacy for quality trail systems. RAMBO fosters relationships with community leaders & land managers, promotes volunteerism, and outdoor recreation that is consistent with environmental protection, thereby strengthening the community and quality of life. Toward these ends, RAMBO/SORBA has the following goals: 1. Activities and Programs. To provide its members and the general public with opportunities to steward, care for, and create trails on the Southeast’s open spaces. We offer trail maintenance work days, bicycle courtesy patrols, group rides, educational programs and family activities designed to promote the responsible use of public trails by mountain bikers. 2. Environmental Protection. To provide leadership in protection and preservation of the environment by advocating the development of informed public policy, by advocating the development of sustainable trail system and by encouraging the establishment and management of protected land and water areas within SORBA’s geographical area.

3. Organization. To provide an organization of volunteers and professionals who will manage SORBA’s facilities and programs, encourage public respect for the environment

and mountain biking, offer SORBA’s expertise to others, and support individual contributions in realizing SORBA’s goals. The 2015 Trail Director for Roswell Is Jim Cullen. BIG CREEK FREERIDE: A City of Roswell Park The trail is designed with gravity riders in mind, and offers a number of progressive features designed to build confidence and expertise in more advanced trail skills. The “Gully” trail in the Freeride section of Big Creek Park is popular with those seeking gravity-fed thrills. 11 trails in the Freeride area are ‘EXPERT level’, with various lines having optional ‘Expert Only’ features and drops. TRAILS • Gully • Lunch Line • Dirt Jumps • Honor Roll (New) • Slalom They strongly encourage riders to wear a full face helmet, knee and elbow pads, lower seatposts, walk the trail BEFORE riding it to become familiar with the terrain and features, and go ONLY in the direction posted on signs. Do NOT walk or ride up a downhill-only trail. Big Creek Freeride continues to evolve giving riders new jumps, features, and alternate lines. Stay in touch with the Freeride Group on Facebook. The course offers progressive trail features, so riders can grow their skills and confidence over time.

PRAYER for Our Nation

God our Creator, we pray: Almighty God, bless our nation and make it true to the ideas of freedom and justice and brotherhood for all who make it great. Guard us from war, from fire and wind,from compromise, fear, confusion. Be close to our president and our statesmen; give them vision and courage, as they ponder decisions affecting peace and the future of the world. Make me more deeply aware of my heritage; realizing not only my rights but also my duties and responsibilities as a citizen. Make this great land and all its people know clearly Your will, that they may fulfill the destiny ordained for us in the salvation of the nations, and the restoring of all things in Christ. Amen
