SEPTEMBER AND OCTOBER IN ROSWELL – what a beautiful time of year. The word that always comes to mind in the Fall is “change.” Change in the weather, in schedules, and an overall feeling of transformation.


I’ve gone through a few changes this year and am undergoing an inner transformation of sorts. What about you? Some people wait until January 1st to make resolutions and changes, but Fall always seems like a better time for me. Everything else around me is changing— why not me? Our beautiful City is in a constant state of change—we have so many community leaders, activists, volunteers and business owners consistently striving to make Roswell an even better place to live. Public and private organizations like Roswell Inc, Visit Roswell, and the HRBA (Historic Roswell Business Association) keep their eyes toward the future, toward growth. You can learn more about them on pages 12 and 20. Two major Fall Festivals are coming up: Roswell Arts Festival (p8) and the Roswell Wine Festival (p15). Bring the family to the Chattahoochee Nature Center’s “Halloween Hikes” (p38) in October; and don’t miss Roswell’s first annual Tour of Homes (p28). Two aspects of Roswell that stand out for me issue after issue are food/dining and the arts. This issue is no exception. We’ve got a restaurant guide (p56), a profile of Carlisle’s Pizza Tavern (p18), a story about local chefs taking part in NYC’s James Beard House event (p32), the performance line-ups at the Roswell Cultural Arts Center (p14 and 46) and the Arts Festival (p8). Get outside and enjoy all our town has to offer this Fall. Let us know what you’d like to see more or less of in the November/December issue, which will focus on the holidays. Live Locally! Warm Regards,

Regina SINCE 1998

Celebrating 50 Years!



EACH YEAR THE ROSWELL ARTS FESTIVAL is held on the third weekend in September at the Historic Town Square. Festival hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. The Roswell Arts Festival only allows artists to have booths in the festival. There are no local business promtions or other types of vendors permitted. Entertainment featuring local singers and dance companies begins daily at noon. Children’s paintings, sand art, balloon animals and other activities are also available. The festival offers a variety of food trucks on site. Since its founding, the Roswell Recreation Association has worked tirelessly to raise money to support the Roswell Recreation, Parks, Historic and Cultural Affairs Department. Among its first projects, the Association built Roswell’s first tennis courts, a little league field, and paid part of the salary for Roswell’s first Recreation and Park Director’s salary. In 1966, the Association began the Roswell Arts Festival, the first arts festival held north of the Chattahoochee River, as a way to promote arts in Roswell and raise funds for recreation and parks in Roswell. The Roswell Arts Festival has been so successful; it is the only fundraising initiative of the Association. Over the years, the more than $1 million raised have been used to help purchase park land, playground equipment, spraygrounds, meditative gardens, and many other projects that have benefitted residents of all ages in Roswell. Festival funds have contributed to the following projects: •Serenity garden at Roswell Area Park (2016) •Adaptive field at Waller Park Extension (2015) •Therapeutic pool at Adult Recreation Center (2014) •Outdoor fitness equipment at Roswell Area Park (2012) •Shade covers at sprayground and various playgrounds (2010) •Easels for visual arts program at Adult Recreation Center (2009)

The Board of Directors, which oversees the Roswell Convention & Visitors Bureau and Roswell Inc celebrated 25 years of success and growth on August 25 at Country Club of Roswell.




Celebrating 25 Years of Supporting Community Initiatives and Partnerships in Roswell, Georgia

FOR THE PAST 25 YEARS, the Roswell Convention & Visitors Bureau has enjoyed a mutually beneficial relationship with the City of Roswell. This partnership began in 1991 under the leadership and direction of then Mayor Pug Mabry and Zac Henderson. On October 8, 1991, 500 people consisting of elected officials, tourism officials, citizens and business owners in Roswell attended the “kick-off” meeting for the Historic Roswell District Owners & Business Association and donated more than $20,000 to show their support. (Historic Roswell District Owners & Business Association would change its name to Roswell Convention & Visitors Bureau in 1995.)

to 5,070 in 2015; an increase of 609 businesses or 14% over 2014 levels. In addition, the number of new business licenses increased to 649 in 2015 creating 2,409 jobs.

For approximately 20 of its 25 years, the CVB’s sole purpose was to address revitalization of the Historic District and promote tourism in the City of Roswell.

Board of Directors president, Ken Davis stated: “As proud as I am of the past 25 years, I am even more excited about the next 25 years as our tourism and economic development initiatives continue to grow and bring success to Roswell. To celebrate our history and better position and align our programs for the years to come, I am pleased to announce the renaming of our executive committee and board. The purpose of this realignment is to better define our Board of Directors responsibilities while at the same time more strongly positioning both programs we govern. Moving into the future, we will be known as Roswell P3 - Supporting Community Initiatives & Partnerships Since 1991.”

Under the direction and leadership of Executive Director Dotty Etris, Roswell’s tourism program has enjoyed great success. According to an independent study, for every $1 invested in advertising, marketing and promotions of tourism, the City of Roswell reaps $365 in tourism related economic activity. The success of our program was recognized at the State level when Dotty Etris was recognized by Governor Nathan Deal with the Lifetime Achievement Award in Tourism.

Davis went on to say, “Roswell P3 better represents the two distinct programs under the Board’s responsibility and helps bring clarity as we continue as a public, private partnership with the City of Roswell. Reporting to our community led Board of Directors, Dotty Etris will continue to lead our tourism initiatives with the Visit Roswell Convention & Visitors Bureau. Likewise, Steve Stroud will continue to report to the Board of Directors and lead our economic development initiatives with Roswell Inc. “

In 2011, the Roswell CVB Board of Directors expanded its partnership with the City of Roswell. The partnership would not only include promoting tourism in the City, but it would also include promoting economic development for Roswell. This new program was charged with retaining and expanding current businesses in Roswell as well as building awareness of Roswell as a great place to do business.

“I am excited about our future in Roswell and the role Roswell P3 will play. The Board of Directors, the Executive Directors and their respective staff members are committed to promoting Roswell.”

Under the direction and leadership of Executive Director Steve Stroud, Roswell’s economic development program has enjoyed great success as well. The number of Roswell businesses increased


Recognized at the celebration were the Tourism Partner award presented to Kevin Langston with the Georgia Tourism Division and the Economic Development Partner Award presented to the Georgia Department of Economic Development. Dotty Etris was presented with the 2016 History Maker of the Year Award for her 25 years of service to Roswell.;

THE CITY OF ROSWELL’S Historic & Cultural Affairs Division is partnering with South Arts, a nonprofit regional arts organization in Atlanta, to bring the Southern Circuit tour of six independent films and their filmmakers to the Roswell Cultural Arts Center. The series includes five documentary-style films and one narrative film. Films were reviewed by a panel of industry experts, with final selections determined by screening partners who will present films in their communities. Invited films and filmmakers were chosen from 412 films submitted from across the country.  “We are thrilled to be hosting our first independent film tour in partnership with South Arts,” said Katherine Jones, Cultural Services Manager for the City of Roswell. “One of the neatest parts of the series is the opportunity to speak with each filmmaker during a Q&A after the screening. It will be a wonderful and engaging way for audience members to learn about the art of filmmaking and the process of becoming a working artist in this particular industry.” “Our 2016‐2017 slate of Southern Circuit films includes thought‐ provoking documentaries, inspiring dramatic narratives and an amusing experimental film. Each event starts at 7 p.m. and runs approximately 2.5 hours. Each film is feature-length and will be shown in full, followed by a Q&A with the filmmaker. Pre-show concessions and beverages will be available to purchase in the lobby 30 minutes prior to show time. Tickets for all shows will be available at Senior, student, and military discounts are available by calling the box office at (770) 594-6232 or in-person during business hours. FEATURED FILMS FOR 2016 INCLUDE: September 27, 2016: TYRUS by Pamela Tom TYRUS is a feature-length documentary film that tells the unlikely

Explicit Content: Mild language, artistic nudity. October 15, 2016: Almost Sunrise by Michael Collins Almost Sunrise follows two Iraq veterans, Tom Voss and Anthony Anderson, both tormented by depression for years after they returned home and pushed to the edge of suicide. The two embark on an extraordinary journey — a 2,700-mile walk across the country from Wisconsin to California in order to reflect on their haunting experiences of war and to ultimately, save themselves. Will this epic pilgrimage allow them to begin the new life they so desperately seek?Explicit Content: Some language and violence about war and PTSD. November 29, 2016: 6 Angry Women by Sridhar Reddy A young, unarmed black teenager is shot by a white neighborhood watchman. It is up to a jury of six to decide whether or not the man is guilty of murder. Inheriting the classic 12 Angry Men and shadowing the incendiary current events of police brutality, racial profiling and civil rights, 6 Angry Women – done with an improvised script – presents the jury deliberation of six women, strangers brought together by their civil duty, each seeking to do the right thing. But the ultimate question looms for each of them to answer: what is justice vs. what is legal? Explicit Content: For mature audiences ONLY. The Southern Circuit of Independent Filmmakers is a program of South Arts and is funded in part by a grant from South Arts in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts.

JOIN OUR Roswell Wine Festival Grows to Become Among the Largest in GEORGIA


By Molly Berg THE ROSWELL WINE FESTIVAL is returning to Canton Street on Sunday, October 2nd. The festival has sold out the past three years and grown to become among the largest wine festivals in the state. The 2016 event will be held Sunday, October 2 from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. and is sponsored by Audi North Atlanta in conjunction with restaurant sponsors Osteria Mattone, Table & Main and Vin25. “The Roswell Wine Festival is a great opportunity for residents and visitors alike to come out to scenic Canton Street and learn more about wine, listen to music and support the local community,” states co-founder Peggy Robinson. “It’s rewarding to see the impact the event is having on the community. My partner, Dwight Cunningham, and I come from the corporate world so this event is a fun departure from our typical day-to-day work.” As longtime friends, Robinson and Cunningham started the festival four years ago when they wanted to fuse their interests in wine and community service. The event is 100% volunteer based and there are still volunteer openings for this year. While sampling new wines, festival attendees can enjoy the sounds of live music along Canton Street. The 2016 festival will feature performances from local musicians Monica Spears and Derek Worth, as well as the blues / rock group Five by Five on the main stage. In addition to the festival on Sunday, two educational wine seminars will be held in conjunction with the festival. A high end wine tasting will be on Saturday, October 1 at Osteria Mattone, while a Wine 101 session will be held immediately before the festival at Vin25. “One of the best parts of the festival is that we donate proceeds to a different local charity each year,” states Robinson. Ticket sales from the 2016 Roswell Wine Festival will benefit ArtAround Roswell, a partnership between the City of Roswell and the Roswell Arts Fund that hosts 10 loaned works of art around the city. In previous years, festival proceeds have gone to Friends of Roswell Parks to build a dog park in Roswell Area Park (currently in design), Roswell Fine Arts Alliance and Bert’s Big Adventure.

THE ROSWELL RECREATION COMMISSION is seeking public input through an online survey regarding the renaming of Waller Park Extension. Currently, there is confusion between Waller Park, which is located at 250 Oak Street, and Waller Park Extension, located at 160 Dobbs Drive. While the names are similar, the two parks have separate entrances off of different roads. Waller Park was donated to the City of Roswell by James Isaac Wright, and was named Waller Park for James H. “Pony” Waller. Therefore, by deed requirements of the land, the name of Waller Park cannot be changed. Waller Park Extension received its name due to its connectivity to Waller Park, as the two parks occupy adjacent parkland. However, there has been confusion between the two parks over the years from both residents and public safety officials. To eliminate that confusion, the Roswell Recreation Commission has proposed two possible park names for consideration. The City would like public input to determine the name of the park and has set up a survey at Through the survey, members of the public can indicate which of the following names they prefer, or they can chose to write in their own park name suggestion. •Groveway Community Park •Groveway Park The survey will remain active until September 30, 2016. About the Groveway Community The Roswell Recreation Commission’s park name proposals seek to honor Roswell’s Groveway Community. The Groveway


Community is the core of what was the earliest African-American neighborhood in Roswell. Some present-day residents can trace their roots in the community for generations. With a desire to strengthen, unify, and make a lasting impact on their immediate community, the Groveway Community has historically initiated community-wide dialogue and addressed disparities with pragmatic solutions. These ongoing, unstructured assemblies led to the establishment of more formal organizations aimed at providing support services and improving the general welfare of the community and its members. These organizations included the Groveway Community Organization (which ultimately merged with the North Fulton Child Development Association), the Groveway Community Center (which was rebuilt by this determined community after it was torched by the Ku Klux Klan in 1961), and the Groveway Community Group. The Groveway Community Group (GCG) has always been civic-minded as evidenced by its efforts to provide resources to meet the community's needs, both big and small. GCG and its members actively seek to fulfill its mission in a myriad of ways, such as helping families in crisis situations, transporting senior citizens who do not have access to transportation to their appointments, maintaining the Pleasant Hill Historical Cemetery, providing scholarships to deserving high school students, and participating in the United Way Shoe Box Campaign and Community Day in the Park/book bag giveaways with school supplies. The GCG has also been very instrumental in establishing Roswell Roots, one of the largest Black History Month celebrations in the state.

Fall Into Healthy Eating By Kathleen Hulsey, Owner and Fishmonger Kathleen’s Catch Fresh Fish Markets

SEPTEMBER AND OCTOBER focus on two important health issues, Breast Cancer and Childhood Obesity awareness. Diet plays an important role in both. Did you know that adding fish to your diet just 2-3x a week can be tremendously beneficial? It is! In an “Everyday Health” article, nutritionist Mary Marian, MS, RD, CSO, recommended eating fish to promote better breast health and boost immune systems. “Fish is a smart protein and a great addition to a breast cancer prevention plan. Any anti-cancer nutrition plan should limit processed and red meats while increasing fish such as salmon, sea bass, and tuna,” explained Marian. Seafood is a natural source of many key vitamins and minerals in levels that are not easily found elsewhere. Seafood is a great choice for kids too, especially if they’re battling a weight problem. Most seafood is low-calorie, low-fat, high protein, and contains abundant levels of Omega-3 fatty acids which are so important. Omega-3s help feed our brains, keep them healthy, help build new cells, and are vital for developing eye function, central nervous and cardiovascular systems. Omega-3s help decrease symptoms of ADHD, including impaired emotion processing, anti-social traits, poor reading ability, and its anti-inflammatory effects have been studied as treatments for obesity, asthma and upper respiratory infections. As a mom, grandmother and the fishmonger at Kathleen’s Catch, I know that serving the freshest fish is critical. Popular selections with high levels of Omega-3 include salmon, tuna, trout, halibut, and shrimp. EASY TO PREPARE IN UNDER 15 MINUTES There are many kid-friendly recipes. Here’s my grandson’s favorite: Cut Carolina Classic All-Natural Catfish filets into 2” strips, dip in a beaten egg bath, and dredge in unsalted panko. Place on a lightly greased baking dish. Cook in a 450° oven for 10-12 minutes, until fish flakes easily. No preservatives, no additives, and your kids will love them! Recognized as one of the Southeast’s most influential women entrepreneurs, Kathleen Hulsey is the proprietor of Kathleen’s Catch ( Kathleen’s Catch began when Kathleen sold fresh, never frozen, fish out of her car on weekends. Now, Kathleen continues her commitment to selling fresh, sustainable fish in two popular family-operated locations in Johns Creek (9810 Medlock Bridge Rd.) and Milton (12660 Crabapple Rd.) communities. Her daughter, Sara, is the manager of the Milton location.Kathleen Hulsey is the proprietor of Kathleen’s Catch (kathleenscatch. com).

SOME MEN still fear the doctor

By Dr. Daniel Shasha Northside Hospital Cancer Institute•Radiation Oncology Program Medical Director


Importance of regular check-ups and screenings CHANCES ARE YOU know a man who refuses to see a doctor. Most men don’t make an appointment until they’re sick, often skipping preventive care. But the consequences of ignoring their health could be very harmful. Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men, affecting one out of every six men, and is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in American men, according to the American Cancer Society. Prostate cancer is increasingly common as men age and is more often found in younger African Americans and in men with family history of prostate cancer. As a result, prostate cancer screening is especially important for men who have urinary symptoms, who are African American, or who have a family member with prostate cancer. When it comes to screening, just one blood draw takes care of many of your important screenings, including, the prostate-specific antigen (PSA) measurement which is a very sensitive screening tool to detect prostate cancer. Blood sugar and cholesterol can be checked with the same single tube of blood at the same time, too. A rectal exam at your checkup may also help identify prostate abnormalities. Identifying Treatment Options Every case of prostate cancer is different and treatment recommendations will vary depending upon patients’ age and health,


stage of their disease, success rates and side effects of each treatment, and patient preferences. Seeing both a radiation oncologist and urologist will best ensure that all treatment options are comprehensively discussed by experts in their fields. Because prostate cancer is generally slow growing it is very important that patients take as much time as needed to see all both specialists and to learn as much as possible about all options so that they can make the decision best for them and their loved ones. The good news is that early detection and more effective treatments with radiation therapy or surgery have resulted in more cures and fewer side-effects. Early detection with PSA testing more frequently discovers cancers early when they are very small and slow growing, for whom active-surveillance without treatment is frequently recommended. For those who require treatment, new sophisticated precision radiation treatments offer patients the ability to be cured with minimal or no effects on urination with some of the highest chances of preserving sexual function. Other options including robotic prostatectomy, freezing with cryosurgery, and heating with focal ultrasound treatments also will be discussed by our team of experts. To determine your risks for developing prostate cancer and to learn more about your treatment options, call 404-531-4444 or visit



Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death because often there are no symptoms until it has spread. The good news is a lung cancer screening can help detect it early when there are more treatment options. Northside Hospital Cancer Institute offers a low dose CT screening if you’re 55 – 77 years old and a current or previous smoker. It’s quick and easy and could save your life.

Where the Extraordinary Happens Every Day


Historic Roswell’s first



THE HISTORIC ROSWELL DOWNTOWN DISTRICT remains a centerpiece of the city, whether you’re drawn to beautiful Canton Street, the Roswell Mill area, the gorgeous parks, or simply the overall vibe. Annual and weekly events take place that draw hundreds of local residents and visitors. The Roswell Historical Society, an organization established in 1971, holds a significant role in the city of Roswell’s efforts, and they intend to continue thriving for years to come. On September 17th and 18th, 2016, the Roswell Historical Society hosts their Annual Tour of Homes, which presents a unique opportunity for ticket-holders to admire some of Roswell’s most unique homes not typically open to the public. On Saturday, guests witness precious treasures inside the following homes: Weatherford Place at105 Weatherford Place, Goulding Place at 109 Goulding Place, Broadwell House at 1033 Canton Street, and Forrest Commons at 50 Commons Alley. On Sunday, visitors will view the Minhinette House at 815 Mimosa Blvd, Presbyterian Church & History Room at 744 Mimosa Blvd, Whitmore Home at 659 Mimosa Blvd, and 1609 & 1802 Liberty Lofts. This first year, the Tour of Homes allows attendees to see the mastery of artifacts that have been preserved for decades. With tickets starting at $20, visitors may experience exclusive views of newer construction in historic Roswell areas. By showcasing these treasures, the society intends to bring to light their mission of fostering an understanding of Roswell’s history and the Society’s efforts to preserve it. Funds from the tour support the society’s future efforts. Sally Kolb, society committee member, envisions


the impact that events like this tour can have in the community. “Funds will support our efforts to restore the Old Roswell Cemetery and Hembree Farm, support our extensive Library and Archives Collection and reach our goal to preserve the history of Roswell by adding even more fun events and educational programs for the community to enjoy,” Kolb said. As their office is located in the Roswell Cultural Arts Center, and their historical artifacts are preserved at the Research Library and Archives and even displayed downtown, the society presents an impact from inside the heart of the city. Local efforts by this non-profit, including events like the Tour of Homes, intend to “collect, preserve, share, and promote the history of the city of Roswell,” Kolb said. By hosting other events such as theater night at the Cultural Arts Center, Roswell’s Farmers Market, and fundraisers geared towards Hembree Farm and the Old Roswell Cemetery, residents have extensive chances to explore the history behind their beautiful city. Events following the 2016 Tour of Homes include a monthly program at Great Oaks, Cleaning Day at the Old Roswell Cemetery, Beyond My Stone, and Night at the Archives; their website includes a full calendar of events. Opportunities such as the 2016 Tour of Homes “allow the public to have a greater appreciation of Roswell’s history, its architecture and past lives lived in these homes and the Roswell Historical Society,” Kolb said.

REVISIT 1920 TAVERN new owners in 2015 revamped menu and ambience



CANTON STREET WONDERFULLY preserves Roswell’s historic appearance and the 1920 Tavern continues to keep the spirit of tradition alive. Happily married owners Howard and Jenna Aronowitz breathed new life into the old tavern in the hopes of providing fresh food made from scratch. While deciding to keep the original title intact, it manages to be both accurate yet contradictory. On the one hand the building did open in the 1920s and the chosen interior reflects the overall style of the period. On the other hand it is billed as a “tavern” but serves the upper-scale food expected of a fine dining restaurant. Priding themselves on creating familial relationships with regular customers, the Aronowitzes consider anyone who walks through their doors to be family. Because of Roswell’s resemblance to their former homeland of South Africa, they have adopted this city as their own, with the tavern serving as a “second home”. The Aronowitz passion for the food industry spans over 15 years and remains at the center of the tavern since its opening just over a year ago. This friendly environment possesses an interior influenced by those of the “speakeasy” style of the early 1920s which include walls lined with antique mirrors, crystal accents and globe lighting. The tavern’s dark brown wood and leather banquettes help elegantly encapsulate an earlier time. Popular dishes include the smoked chicken and fresh fish fillets. The cordial staff and quality ingredients complement one another to ensure an exceptional dining experience.


If you are hoping to celebrate Roswell’s historic past with a fine dining establishment that goes above and beyond, then look no further. The 1920 Tavern is located on 948 Canton St. and is open from 11am-10pm Sunday through Thursday and 11am-11pm every Friday and Saturday.

FALL INTO ACTION By Tracy Coles The Hernandez Group, KW Roswell

Fall is here, and school is back in session. With this comes the beginning of a wrap up in the season for real estate sales in Roswell and North Metro Atlanta. Currently, supplies are low and demand is increasingly high, so sellers are getting top dollar for their homes with favorable terms and (if priced right), multiple offers. 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 in every price range. 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 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 Fall colors in. 3.Make kitchen & baths white glove clean. 4.Sniff out smells and bad odors. 5.Blow leaves! Make first impressions count! If you’re considering selling, now is the time to “spring into action” and take advantage of the current market conditions.

EVERY SEPTEMBER, Keep Roswell Beautiful teams up with the City of Roswell and the Chattahoochee Nature Center to be part of Rivers Alive, Georgia’s annual river clean-up. Our state’s 70,100+ miles of rivers and streams need our help to remain viable resources for drinking water, recreation, and places of natural beauty. The Chattahoochee is an especially important waterway in Georgia, so those of us fortunate enough to live nearby have both the responsibility and privilege to take care of it. This year, Roswell volunteers will lend a hand on Saturday, September 24th from 8:30 AM until 11:30 AM with privet removal (privet is an invasive shrub), litter pick-up at Riverside Park and the surrounding areas, and educating residents about stormwater pollution by marking storm drains in local neighborhoods.. Our business partners in this endeavor are Chattahoochee Nature Center, SuperTARGET, Starbucks, Advanced Disposal, and the Kiwanis Club of Historic Roswell. A special thanks to them for their support! Volunteers MUST pre-register prior to the event. Groups need only register once, however, each individual needs to bring a signed waiver to the event.

In honor of the late Senior Pastor Lane Alderman


Roswell Presbyterian Church BY CYNTHIA CRANE

2015 WAS THE 175th ANNIVERSARY of Roswell Presbyterian Church (RPC) and thus the town of Roswell as Roswell was originally built within a one mile radius of RPC. The original sanctuary proudly stands today on Mimosa Blvd. As part of the 175th Anniversary, RPC asked Cindi Crane, author of Roswell Redemption, to add the history of RPC and Roswell from 1984 - 2014 to their history book, A History of Roswell Presbyterian Church, originally written by Clarece Martin. To follow is an excerpt from Chapter XIII, The Town… Roswell proudly proclaims as its vision statement: “We are a family oriented, safe and attractive community that respects the natural environment, protects its historic character, and celebrates its culture. We are Roswell…The best place to live in Georgia.” In the 1980’s Roswell began to grow and expand at an incredible rate with a population of 6,732 in 1970 to 23,337 in 1980. In a matter of a decade Roswell was transformed from a small town surrounded by woods, fields and farms into an affluent bedroom community in the most desirable suburban area of Atlanta. Roswell was forever changed as it became Georgia’s 8th largest city with a population of 91,168 in 2013. During the past thirty years Roswell has performed a balancing act between a desire to financially benefit from its tremendous growth and its desire to retain its character as a charming historic town with a high quality of life suitable for raising and


nurturing a family. Celebrated author and columnist Celestine Sibley at age 49 moved to a cabin near Roswell that she called Sweet Apple. Ms. Sibley was a prominent voice for the changes and considerable growth of Roswell. “Clamor has come to the country”, she wrote in 1980. In 1999 the Georgia Department of Transportation named a section of GA 140 the Celestine Sibley Highway. In 1975, 540 acres in the city were designated as the Roswell Historic District. It generally encompassed Mimosa Boulevard, Bulloch Avenue, the Roswell Square, the Roswell Square stores, and the area in the vicinity of Sloan Street. The Historic District has now expanded to include land and properties from the Chattahoochee River north to Woodstock Road. The City of Roswell purchased Bulloch Hall (1972), Smith Plantation (1985), and Barrington Hall (2005), homes of some of the original founding members of Roswell Presbyterian Church. Rev. Dr. Nathaniel A. Pratt’s home, Great Oaks is used as a special events facility. Former Mayor Pug Mabry stressed the importance to the city of developing Canton Street when he stated, “As goes the Historic District, so goes the City of Roswell.” Visit Roswell Presbyterian Church’s History Room for more information about the church and the town of Roswell.

HALLOWEEN HIKES: Friday and Saturday, October 21, 22, 28 and 29 at the Chattahoochee Nature Center. Enjoy an alternative family adventure to reconnect your children with the natural world and overcome nature deficit disorder! Turn off that TV and get outside under the stars at the Chattahoochee Nature Center’s 31st annual Halloween Hikes! Smell the fragrant woody scents of colorful autumn leaves crunching on the mulched trails under your feet as you hike the well lighted trails in the moonlight. Let your guide introduce you to friendly forest creatures as they tell their fascinating tales with a dash of improv and humor. Then watch the crackling flames of the bonfire and listen to the lively rhythms of our world music drummer as you meet a parade of imaginatively costumed characters. Kids who come in costumes receive a special ‘treat’. Celia Steigerwald, a 21 year veteran volunteer of Halloween Hikes at the Chattahoochee Nature Center, describes her experience with this unique local family friendly event. “Halloween Hikes is something that was a wonder to me when I first encountered it. Having just moved back to the States, after many years abroad, the concept of Halloween was a bit daunting and culturally alien to both me and my two young children. Therefore, when this great alternative, one full of education under the magical guise of giant talking creatures, came along I just had to be a part of it.” “I have been many characters through the years; frog, opossums, firefly, kingfisher, spider, squirrel to name a few.  The memories that linger are the camaraderie of the folk who volunteer to be characters.  They are a special breed of individual that takes their commitment to the children very seriously with a large ladle of hilarity whirled on top.”  “There are a few stand out years.  One would be when, as a person with some acrophobia, I had to climb into a deer stand and have a bat head hanging off my feet to give the


appearance of hanging upside. Once I was up, all was well, except that the head was rather heavy and I lost feeling in my legs and was unable to climb down.  This was solved the following night by putting a rolled up sleeping bag under my knees and allowing me to express my strong tree hugging urges both on the way up and down.  I felt some accomplishment that year.   One year the person who was supposed to play Mother Earth, an indispensable and incredibly important character, didn’t show up.  My eleven year old daughter put the costume on, worked on some lines for the half hour before the public came through and did a stunning job.  It was one of those wonderful parent moments.  She went on to play other characters when she was older and I once had the privilege of sharing a dual character spot with her as a dragonfly and firefly.  We had such fun together those nights.  The role that seems to have fit me best is that of Howie Pollute, a pile of trash.  I love this character, the message and the children’s and parent’s reactions to him.   “I have since learned to appreciate a traditional Halloween, but give me Halloween Hikes every time.  Walking through the woods at night is something few people experience and to have it sprinkled with a series of surprises with a powerfully positive message cannot be beat.” Celia Steigerwald is one of those volunteers we have come to rely on year after year, said Rebecca Gilbert, Director of Community Programs at the Chattahoochee Nature Center. It is hard to imagine that she has been doing this for twenty years now. It just goes to prove what a wonderful tradition Halloween Hikes has become!”   7:00 – 10:00 PM•No Pre-Registration Needed REMEMBER, CNC MEMBERS CAN PURCHASE THEIR TICKETS IN ADVANCE BEGINNING OCTOBER 1ST! Tickets are $1 less the first weekend! $9 per person - October 21 and 22 and $10 per person - October 28 and 29 Children 2 and under are free (Trails are not suitable for strollers.)


Breathe Well - Look Well Feel Well Austin and Alex Age 8 and Age 5 Since moving to GA from AZ 2.5 years ago, both boys have suffered from various environmental allergies. When Salt Therapy opened, I thought, we have nothing to lose. The boys LOVE going to their "salt therapy" sessions and play in the salt, dig, and watch a movie! My older son is no longer snoring at night and my younger son seems more alert, and is full of life in the evening rather than tired and dragging. Most importantly, my boys enjoy this alternative therapy, and they understand that this holistic treatment, as well as others, are key to overall health rather than prescriptions and antibiotics.

I was very excited to hear that t a lot of drainage. I was breathing better almost immediately. I have since had another treatment and is breathing better and better every day. I would recommend this to any adult or child with chronic all year round allergies like mine! -Paula S Coming off a long vacation I felt horrible with major sinus and chest congestion. I thought for sure I was going to need yet another antibiotic when I heard about the Salt Med Spa. After just two sessions I could breathe again! I have had sinus and respiratory problems since moving to Georgia but I am convinced that the Salt Med Spa will help keep me breathing well and healthy. Not only is it healing, but incredibly relaxing! I have been multiple times and always look forward to my sessions. -Jennifer After having the flu in November, I kept a chronic cough for weeks. I went through two bottles of cough syrup and a lot of Mucinex. After the first session, I slept soundly without taking cough medicine. The second session brought even more relief and I didn't need cough medicine at any time. I've had only a productive cough that seems normal and can hardly believe how quickly I felt better. -Janet

"Halfway through the first session I noticed a dramatic increase in my ability to breathe. 8 sessions later and I no longer need to use my inhaler when I workout! Oh and my sinus infection is gone. This place rocks!" -Kimberly “After the very first visit to Salt MedSpa we experienced a notable change in health and well-being. My asthma symptoms continue to decrease. Sam is a cosmetologist for over 40 years with inhaling various chemicals at her salon and the Salt Spa has enabled her to clear the congestion she has endured for so many years and breathe and even regain her sense of smell. We now enjoy a full and blissful nights sleep without “snoring” or interruptions from coughing. A bonus from the Salt-Spa has been the absence of arthritis pain…the arthritis isn’t cured, but the pain is significantly reduced…thanks to the healthy benefits of the Salt-Spa sessions." -Vern & Sam

"Love going to a salt session. It is really helping with my psoriasis and I am able to breathe so much better after!" -Whitney

"I am really seeing a difference in my respiratory condition after only three sessions! My sinus headache and ringing in my ears was gone without medication after just a couple of hours after one of my sessions. I also have more energy and love how relaxed I feel afterwards." -Elizabeth

“Great experience! Very relaxing & took care of my runner's cough. They also have wonderful skincare products & salt lamps. Definitely planning to give as gifts!!” –Susie My family and I love this place! My daughter and I went for the first time with a persistent cough, but after just one treatment the cough was gone. I can't recommend this place enough to anyone looking for a more natural holistic treatment approach. My children have not had to go to the pediatrician all winter, and I believe that the Salt MedSpa is the reason. On a side note, the facials are also by far the best I've experienced anywhere!! -Rachael, Eddie, Adelene, Caden

"Loved it, within 5 minutes of being in the salt room I could breathe and feel so much better, it's also helping with my acne!" -Mayra After months of seeing a specialist and being put on 4 different prescription drugs (one of which was an inhaler), we found out about Salt Med Spa. It's the best discovery we could have made! My 3 year old daughter had been suffering from severe allergic rhinitis and was borderline asthmatic. On top of that, she kept picking up every cold and virus back to back. We started having 2 to 3 salt therapy sessions a week and by the end of the second month, I am happy to say that she is off all four of the prescriptions and doing great! She also is no longer constantly sick with every cold and virus that comes along! We are so happy to have found Salt Med Spa. Everyone there is so very friendly and helpful. They always make us feel welcome. -Morris & Ziva

9/11 Tribute Ceremony


at Roswell Area Park

MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC are invited to join the City of Roswell and the Roswell Rotary Club on Sunday, Sept. 11, 2016, as they honor those lost and injured during the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. The 9-11 Tribute will take place at 1:30 p.m. at the Mike Gann 9-11 Memorial, located near the lake in Roswell Area Park, 10495 Woodstock Road. The tribute will feature the Roswell Fire & Police Honor Guard, the U.S. Coast Guard Pipe Band, the Holcomb Bridge Middle School Chorus, a floating wreath presentation, special guests and commemorations. Atlanta radio legend Moby Carney will serve as master of ceremonies. The 9-11 attacks were the deadliest terrorist attacks on American soil in U.S. history. The attacks killed 2,977 people, including 343 firefighters and 72 police officers, who had rushed to the scene to help people.


Knowing the award winning architecture firm wouldn’t attract the new graphics business they wanted, Nicole and principal, Alex Paulson, regrouped and rebranded, creating vivid south. They are keenly aware of the importance of branding a company right. There is only once chance to make a first and lasting impression on a prospect. So vivid south helps businesses discover what is unique about them in order to brand authentically in line with the company vision. Conveniently located in the heart of downtown Roswell, the team offers a wide variety of services. including logo design, website design, print design and much more. They’ve been honored to win multiple award for their work and continue to dazzle clients with their intuitive designs. In early 2016, vivid south was recognized by Graphic Design USA and received awards for some of Nicole’s work for logos and marketing material created the previous year. Their work may be familiar to you without realizing it. Nicole is responsible for the logo design for Alive in Roswell as well as all of the graphics for the annual art show, The Creative Mill.

THE MERE MENTION OF SOFTWARE causes some people to hyperventilate. Are you one of those people? Using software is a bit like getting married. If each party gives only 50%, it will fail. Both must give 100%. Does your software give you 100%? We all hate those software updates, especially the ones that will take no time. Translation, you will possibly be down a long time! Oh Joy. The thought of new software is even worse. Trying to learn new procedures is always difficult. Of course, then the software errors occur and the blame game begins. Software is a mixed blessing. I like to say software and computers are a cursed blessing, or a blessed curse, depending on your viewpoint. But software does not have to be your enemy at all. It can be tailored to fit your business, not your business fitting the software. Imagine, a screen that follows the way you want things done. One that parallels your business model and procedures? Even mundane software such as back office accounting can be made to fit your business. Most people and companies simply accept performance mediocrity as a way of life. Demand that your software work for you. Demand 100% from both parties and the marriage will work. After all, the computer is your slave, not the reverse! Tnx…id 41



Roswell Chefs Take Culinary Expertise to New York City Ryan and Dan Pernice Showcase Their Exclusive Menu at the James Beard House on October 6th

View the exclusive menu @



FROM ROSWELL HIGH SCHOOL attendees to preparing a gourmet meal at one of the most highly- recognized culinary platforms in the world, the Pernice brothers flourish in the culinary field. After developing Table & Main, now a Roswell staple, the brothers partnered together to open a finer dining setting at Osteria Mattone. Pairing their backgrounds of wine knowledge, the service industry, prior experience cooking in New York, and an extensive amount of trial and error, the duo will now showcase their talents at the James Beard House in the big Apple.

teams, including a direct path to perform at the James Beard House, one of the highest honors in the gourmet dining arena. After years of pitching their menu ideas, the brothers and their dining teams earned their golden ticket into the preferred establishment, set for October 6. In the Fall, the James Beard House’s guests, who arrive via solely reservations, will taste an exclusive menu, set by Ryan, Dan, and their Roswell team. Ryan Pernice notices how their consistent track record in Roswell secured this accolade.

Table & Main combines clubhouse chic with the neighborhood scene that Roswell residents sought after, prior to its establishment in August of 2011. With that concept in mind, Ryan Pernice, Owner and Operator of the restaurant, created Table & Main to serve “simple, seasonal, and southern food,” all under one roof. From seeing neighbors on a weekly basis to servicing soulful, comfort foods like their renowned fried chicken and appetizing meatballs, Table & Main serves a familiar, Roswell community on a daily basis. After much success and “striking a chord with guests from the beginning,” Table & Main has created a standard of dining in the rich, historic district, according to Pernice.

“We are [now] more credible in Roswell,” Table & Main’s Owner said. “For us, it’s like moving from the minor leagues to the majors.”

Osteria Mattone, originating in Roswell since November of 2013, commenced when Dan Pernice, formerly working at The Modern in New York City, discussed the opportunity to return to Roswell and open a restaurant with his brother. Thus grew Osteria Mattone, a niche, Italian cuisine centrally located in the city. With Dan as a wine connoisseur and Ryan as an already-established owner of a Roswell restaurant, their expertise naturally aligned to fill a need for an Italian bistro in the neighborhood. Thus grew a thriving partnership of brothers and their culinary


The vision behind the NYC excursion is to not only further their resumes, but to allow Roswell to be recognized on a national platform. Both brothers lived in New York for an extensive period as well, so this invitation signifies an even greater recognition because they have seen the restaurant, walked past it, and envisioned this honor for years. Having grown a local eatery to a world-class, fine dining settings, the Pernice brothers know their work ethic supported this honor. Their award-winning chefs showcasing at this event for Table & Main and Osteria Mattone are Woolery “Woody” Back, Eric Sell and Vivian Lee. “If we couldn’t get the right food to the right person every single time, then what were we even doing?,” Ryan told Roswell Magazine. “We never lost sight of the fundamentals and have grown two restaurants that are so different from five years ago. Our team truly deserves to be showcased.”

ART Infused w/ the Lord



ART OF LIVING STUDIOS CONTINUE to change lives, one paint stroke, pottery piece and jewelry creation at a time. Created with the Lord’s power to heal in mind, Patricia Reeves, founder of Art of Living Studios, comprehends the immense influence that the arts have on one’s immune system. Reeves yearned for a physical plan for her healing when she found the Lord calling her to the arts. Art of Living Studios is a culmination of the arts and an equipping center for artists and individuals to find that sense of community they may be lacking while glorifying God in the process. By pouring unconditional love to individuals that need a place to belong, Reeves and her team of four other resident artists offer sessions titled “Create with the Creator,” which take place in the shelter of her own home. Although the Lord led Reeves to found this organization in 1994, the studio is a non-profit as opposed to a religious organization; visitors and workers of all denominations participate. The Community of Hope, a main sponsor for the studio, offers 250 acres of outdoor grounds of fishing, camping and hiking areas where groups can come together to “facilitate God’s glory through the arts and nature,” Reeves said. Although separate ministries, they have the same mission in mind, which is to provide an atmosphere where one’s diagnosis is left outside the door. The studio and the outdoor spaces facilitate worshipping while working, Reeves said.

A healthy life begins in the garden


Native Plants

Friday, September 23 and Saturday, September 24 (10 a.m. to 5 p.m.)

Plants such as the Beautyberry (Calicarpa americana), attract plenty of wildlife and provide a garden with color.



LET YOUR GARDEN GO GREEN! Remember, how you maintain your garden or lawn impacts the health of the soil, air, water and the habitats for native wildlife – as well as the human community nearby. When you plant native plants, you’ll be able to reduce your chemical use and save money on water. You’ll be taking important steps to greener gardening, which is better both for animals and your family. “Native plants are easy to grow,” said Lisa Cole, horticulture manager with the Chattahoochee Nature Center. “They are aesthetically pleasing, promote biodiversity, need less water and are already adapted to the climate and are drought tolerant.” That means they need less care, water and chemicals, leading, ultimately, to a better plant. If the plant is a herb or vegetable, the benefits are multiple. “By growing food in your backyard you can monitor how organic you want it to be. With food at the grocery store, you never know what you’re getting, even if it says it’s organic. And being truly farm-to-table, they taste better. There are higher nutrients in these crops that are lost in shipping to stores.” Beyond people, wild animals need to eat as well. Planting native shrubs, flowers and trees is the easiest way to provide


Volunteers prepare plants in the CNC’s greenhouse. the foliage, nectar, pollen, berries, seeds and nuts that many wildlife species need to survive and thrive. “Hawthorn, Viburnum, Beauty Berry and Holly shrubs are great for adding color to attract our feathered friends,” said Cole. “To attract pollinators and butterflies, remember to have something blooming through long seasons. Remember to plant host plants such as milkweed for Monarch Butterflies.” And now is a perfect time to plant. A long, cold winter enables plants to develop dense root systems for strong healthy growth in the spring. Native plants adapt easily, require less maintenance, and exhibit lower pest loads. Don’t know what plants are native to your area? Ask local specialists or check online sources. A great way to learn more about native plants, and to grab some of your own, is to visit the Fall Native Plant Sale, Sept. 23 and 24, at Roswell’s Chattahoochee Nature Center. A members-only preview sale is Sept. 22. For information on that, including hours and varieties of plants, visit

How Concussions Affect the Fascia


By Iris Mack•Healing Touch of the Dove Therapeutic Center

HOW DO CONCUSSIONS AFFECT the fascia in the body? Since fascia is a thin covering of every organ and muscle in the body, connecting everything in the body from the top of your head to the bottom of your foot, a head trauma can affect your whole body, not just your head. On Valentine’s Day in 2014, I experienced a major concussion when I passed out in the bathroom. I hit my head on the base of the toilet and on the ceramic tile floor. I could feel that the fascia responded by winding tight around the brain, making me feel like I was in a vice grip. The fascia spiraled around my head affecting my ears, sinuses, and my eyes. I had no depth perception. The fascia winding tightly around the muscles in my jaw created TMJ pain. I could feel the effects of the tightening fascia on my throat, vocal cords, and shoulders. The resulting wrapping of the fascia tightly around the spine and sacrum affected the fascia on the IT Band and knee which in turn affected the feet. Tightly wound fascia restricts blood supply to the affected areas and creates pressure on nerves. As a result, I experienced numbness in parts of my legs and feet. I believe God has used this experience to learn first-hand about the treatments for concussions and how myofascial release therapy can have a major impact on restoring health.


Until you get the fascia unwound and your brain rebooted through kinesiology, restore balance with acupuncture, the aftereffects of the concussion - having “brain fog”, balance issues, depth perception challenges, etc. - will remain. Due to the extreme connectedness of the fascia throughout the body, until fascia is completely released, it will continue to bind down onto organs and muscles throughout the body. Therefore, once we get our bodies restored, we need to do maintenance on our bodies just like we do maintenance on our vehicles. When fascial release is part of our maintenance, it allows us to recover faster when we have physical trauma. My recovery was wonderful with restored brain function, vision, and balance.

CoreMatters and Beliefs BY ANN MARIE GIGLIO, CoreMatters

THE EASIEST WAY TO EXPLAIN “BELIEFS” is to say what beliefs are NOT. Beliefs are NOT facts.They are only interpretations or judgments we make about ourselves, our experiences, and the world around us. They are the meaning we assign to things. For example: If you weighed yourself and your weight did not change this week, it is a verifiable fact. But I’ve heard people take that fact and conclude all sorts of things, like their weight means that their diet is not working and they’ll never lose weigh, or that they’ve failed. Again. And that they just should stop trying. And—you get the idea. However, these conclusions are not facts. They are beliefs about the fact that the weight number hasn’t changed. Here’s the rub: believing any one of those conclusions can be accurate information or just plain wrong. A nutrition plan may be spot on. The person may have missed a couple of workouts that week. Or they may be retaining water from something they ate the day before. Or they are carrying undigested food. Or it could be they have put on lean tissue. That one number (weight) really isn’t very much information after all! It’s a fact, but it’s not a useful fact. Why do we care? Because sometimes our beliefs are actually holding us back. They can make us feel frustrated or hopeless or even mess with our self-confidence. WHAT CAN WE DO? We can install new beliefs into our minds!

Like loading new software in your computer, we can install new programming in our brains. We were not born with any beliefs about anything. We have acquired these beliefs over time and through conditioning. Here are some beliefs we’ve heard in the studio: •“Everyone is bigger in my family.”“It’s my genetics.” •“We all get the same belly.” •“I’m just getting older.” •“My doctor said I should just get used to it.” The first thing we need to do is change how we talk to ourselves. We are always listening, so we need to choose carefully! Start with a focus on the higher level beliefs •It’s Achievable (Possibility) •I Am Able (Capability) •I Must Achieve It (Necessity) •I Deserve It (Worthiness) •I want It (Desire) •I Expect It (Expectation) •I Am Willing (Willingness) Try using those phrases when you speak to yourself. “I want to, I am capable, I deserve, it’s possible to find a better job/fit in the clothes in my closet/move to a nicer home.” I guarantee if you talk to yourself this way all the time, your brain will change and your life will change, too. Believe me.

Hot for


BY Shannon Gowland Food Therapy Chef @ Roswell Farmers Market


THE HOT WEATHER IS STILL HERE. Hot weather and culinary herbs have been taking off all summer. We are on the heels of seeing fresh basil. With the abundance of these amazing aromatic herbs it is a shame not to use them. Parsley: An herb that reminds me of parsnips or carrot leaves. A clean and earthy flavor that pairs well with fresh salads, tomato, and garnish soups. Cooked with fish and poultry but pay attention, don’t overcook parsley as it will lose potency and color. Combines well with onion, mint, garlic, thyme, & chives. Medicinal use: The medicinal effects are in Parsley’s volatile oils and flavonoids, which are responsible for her notable flavors. Assists with urinary tract infections and GI distress. Basil: One of my all-time favorites for tea and to pair with Tomatoes and fresh made cheese. Basil is sweet and peppery with a slight anise-like after taste. Best used in salads, dips, soups, sautéed with greens, and topping all pasta dishes (a must!). Pair with garlic, onion, cilantro, mint, and fennel. Anti-oxidant & anti-microbial benefits are strong in fresh basil. Traditionally used to stimulate appetite and ease the stomach. A tonic for Kidney function and a rinse for mouth ulcers. The major volatile oil in Basil is estragole.


The tall and beautiful Dill with her fragrant flower clusters and delicate leaves offers a slightly licorice flavor. Best to use in beet soups, fish stews & chowders, pickle recipes, and fresh cream cheese dips. Combine with garlic, mustard seeds, parsley, and coriander. A dill infused tea in the evening may assist with insomnia. Peppermint: a busy plant with its long stems that seems to take over all herb beds. You have to contain peppermint as she is sure to run! Best to use in sweets, whipped cream, fruit salad, making a fresh lemon aioli, and as a garnish. Combines well with marjoram and lemon. Peppermint makes a wonderful tea to drink before or after a meal, or when a cold or congestion is present, and helpful during liver detox. Rosemary: Who doesn’t love to have the pine like shrub in their garden? Rosemary has a deep aromatic scent with floral undertones that is best used in roasts and herbal vinegars. Pair with root vegetables, meats, and potatoes. A strong infusion on Rosemary can assist to ease headaches, used externally to wash wounds and assist with eczema. Oregano is short and shrubby with a bold and deep flavor. The fresh herb is much stronger than in her dried form. Similar to

ONE OF ROSWELL’S FINEST golfing establishments is the Brookfield Country Club. But what allows them to stand out is their attention to technique. They have adopted the philosophy that golf is as much an art as it is a science. In order to lower your score, it is important to concentrate on the specifics of the swing along with the tactics to properly play the game. Brookfield’s own Golf Academy offers assistance in both areas through the use of cutting-edge technology and professional instruction. For developing a personal swing, SwingModel is a scientific technology that analyzes a player’s technique and combines feedback of that unique swing with the qualities found in experienced golfing. This will allow strokes to be shaved off the handicap. In most cases, 70% of all golf shots take place 120 yards and in. Chipping and putting are equally if not more important skills to have when decreasing your score on the course. The Academy also offers advanced technology that can enhance these aspects of the game and go beyond a simple golf swing. A great golf swing can only get a player so far but a skilled short game is what can ultimately deliver an improved score. As helpful as the technology is for self-improvement, it is also important to take personal advice from a seasoned golfer. The Academy offers professional on-course instruction. Simply learning the technique is useless if you can’t play the game. By breaking down the individual components of your time spent on the course, a player can reach their full potential. That is why having a professional player by your side is key in developing an acquired strategy.

PRAY LOCALLY God our Creator, we pray: Almighty God, bless our nation and make it true to the ideas of freedom, justice, and brotherhood for all. Be close to our president and our statesmen; give them vision and courage. Make me more deeply aware of my heritage; realizing my rights, duties and responsibilities. Make this great nation and all its people know clearly Your will. Amen.




PLEASE JOIN US HERE at Roswell Magazine to pray for a friend who recently underwent a tragic accident while vacationing in Gulf Shores, Alabama with his wife, four children and extended family. They were there in August to celebrate a family reunion – as this large, close family has traditionally done every other year. Stephen Franke and his daughter Abby were trying to catch “one last wave” before heading in for the day; but the wave was so powerful it picked him up and threw him down head first into the shallow waters. He nearly drowned, and he was pulled ashore by his daughter with no pulse and water in his lungs. Thankfully, there were two nurses in his extended family, who began CPR and resuscitated him. After surgery in Pensacola and again at Shepherd’s Center in Atlanta, Stephen is now paralyzed, only able to move his thumb; yet the family is praying for recovery. To add to this tragic situation, he had not yet been on the job long enough to qualify for disability insurance, so the family is facing astronomical medical bills that may devastate his family financially. His four brothers have set up a GoFundMe page to help offset some of the costs. Earlier this Summer, Stephen Franke was hired as General Manager of Brookfield Country Club here in Roswell. He tackled the job head on while he and his wife Rene juggled carpool, children’s activities and all the active things busy parents do. Now, his family’s life has been turned completely upside down. Please pray for Stephen and his family; and if you’re able, please donate whatever you can to help this local family. Thanks so much! GoFundMe: Search for “Stephen Franke.” Also, be sure to join their Facebook page for updates: “Prayers for Stephen Franke.”
