  Marshall Pereira, better known to his students as Master
  P, is now bringing Choi Kwang Do to East Cobb. In fact,
  the founder, Grandmaster Kwang Jo Choi, sent him to
  oversee the East Cobb location. Both children (classes
  for 4-11) and adults (classes for 12 and older) can benefit
  from this martial arts program that promotes physical,
  mental, and spiritual well being.
                                                                      JEWELRY                  SHOES              ACCESSORIES
      Choi Kwang Do actually started right here in
  Georgia in 1987. A world–famous, successful Tae Kwon
  Do practitioner and trainer, Grandmaster Choi founded
  Choi Kwang Do to incorporate scientific principles of
  motion and natural bilateral movement, as well as

  breathing and stretching into traditional martial arts.
  Choi Kwang Do is not intended for competition.

  Do since 1988. He has trained more than 30 Choi Kwang
  Do instructors who are now teaching throughout the
  world. Master P cites the benefits of Choi Kwang Do as
  strength, endurance, flexibility, stress relief, weight control,
  self defense, improved self-esteem, improved coordina-
  tion and balance, and increased energy. He goes on to
  say that children with attention deficit disorders, learning
  disorders, hyperactivity, and simply shy personalities have
  all seen improvements in these areas in just a few lessons.

     is Your Car Road Ready
          For The Trip?
     Thanksgiving is the busiest travel holiday of the year. It is
 the perfect time of year to make sure your car is in perfect
 running condition. About a week or so prior to getting on the
 road, it would be wise to bring your car in to your local auto
 expert and have them thoroughly examine your car for any
 problems or safety concerns.
       Our ASE Certified Master Technicians will check and fill
 all of your vehicle’s vital fluids including the transmission fluid,
 power steering fluid, brake fluid, fuel injection, antifreeze, and
 windshield washer fluid. We will also perform a battery, starter,
 and alternator test, examine all of the belts and hoses, check
 your brakes, completely inspect your suspension, make sure
 all of your lights are working, and we will check your tire pres-
 sure and evaluate your tires’ condition. We will make sure
 your tires, and vehicle is road trip ready. Ensuring you have
 had all these items inspected and running properly will guar-
 antee peace of mind on your road trip. Another item, which
 is often overlooked, is the headlight lenses. Cloudy, foggy, or
 yellowed headlight lenses can cause impaired visibility mak-
 ing night driving difficult. Our headlight restoration service,
 value priced at $129.99, will restore beam clarity and improve
 luminosity increasing night driving visibility.

      Happy Thanksgiving!                     Casual Fashion That Flatters Your Body

  We’ve got plenty to be thankful
       for and that includes
   the privilege of serving you.
       We appreciate your
        continued support.                   s Owner Laura Fanoe and her brother, Dennis Farrell, Jr.

                                             model highly popular True Religion jeans with a casual shirt
                                             and jacket. All can be purchased at The Hub Boutique.

                                               Following in the footsteps of her beloved grandmoth-
                                       er’s retail store in Indiana, East Cobb resident Laura Fanoe
                                       is opening a boutique full of upscale jeans, cute little tops,
                                       accessories, and unique gift items. Laura gave her shop
                                       the same name as grandma’s shop, The Hub Boutique “The
                                       Center of Fashion”, as the ultimate nod to grandma. She
                                       says, “My grandmother and I were best friends.” The Hub
                                       is still a family affair, as Laura’s mother-in-law, Dorris, family
                                       members, and her best friend are helping out.
                                            As a Marietta native, I wanted to give local women
                                       (and men) the accessibility to great designer clothing with-
                                       out the hassle of time consuming commute. I want The Hub
                                       Boutique to be your “go to” store when you are in need of
                                       a wardrobe/attitude pick-me-up,” shares Laura.
                                             The Hub Boutique opened for business November 3, just
                                       in time for colder weather and the search for holiday gifts!
                                       Men and women of all ages can find high-end jeans at The
                                       Hub. Laura had both normal and a-bit-heavier people try
                                       on different jeans, until she found the best brands to carry:
                                       jeans that make everyone look great! She said, “The idea is
                                       to have something for everybody…to [have customers] find
                                       the perfect fit.”
                                            At The Hub Boutique, you can shop for upscale, well-
                                       cut jeans or lower-priced gifts. Explore not just shades of
                                       indigo denim, but several other color options. NYDJ, the
                                       newly re-branded Not Your Daughter Jeans, are available.
                                       The store carries everything from the cleaner-looking Henry
                                       & Bell to the very trendy look of True Religion.
                                             “We are incorporating San Diego Hat Company mer-
                                       chandise…including a really cool scarf that has a pocket,”
                                       said Laura. Another unique item is a soy candle that makes
                                       a warm wax you rub on your hands, as a kind of lotion. Who
                                       knows what other cute things you might find? Check out

                     LaVida Massage:
   ‘Tis the season to Treat Yourself with Affordable Luxury
                         The bustle of the holiday season is quickly approaching and along with all the fun
                     and festivities often comes an unwelcome guest – stress. East Cobbers looking to relax
                     and unwind have a new choice this season thanks to the recent addition of LaVida
                     Massage in the Parkaire Kroger shopping center.
                         Opened October 1 by East Cobber Terry Sharp and his business partner Duane
                     Goodwin, LaVida is a health and wellness center offering massage and aestheti-
                     cian services in an atmosphere of affordable luxury. The LaVida concept is relatively
                     simple – to offer clients an individually customized experience with a highly trained
                     professional at a reasonable price in an environment that appeals to both men and
                         With the first step inside LaVida Massage, clients know they’re in for a unique
                             experience. The neutral décor calms the senses and the tranquil music and
                              mild aromatherapy set the stage for a relaxing visit. Every therapist is nation-
                              ally certified and licensed in the state of Georgia. Therapists must also com-

                                  LaVida’s therapists are trained in a variety of massage modalities includ-
                              ing Swedish, couples, deep tissue, neuromuscular, trigger point, hot stone,
                              prenatal, chair and corporate massage. At the initial appointment, clients
                              complete a health assessment to assist their therapist in determining the
                              appropriate combination of modalities for their particular needs including
                               pain management, stress relief or as a reward.
                         For new clients, a 60-minute massage is $39.95 and subsequent visits are $69.95.
                     Clients can also choose to join “The Life Benefits Program” which lowers the price
                     to $49.95 per month. This no-contract program entitles members to one service per
                     month. Additional services can be purchased at a discounted rate and unused ser-
                     vices are rolled over each month, ensuring a client will not lose the benefit they’ve
                                         purchased. You can even add a family member for free, so that
                                         they can enjoy the benefits too.

                                  ensure you have a safe holiday celebration:

                                       • Wash hands and food contact surfaces often to
                                         prevent the spread of bacteria from one food item
                                         to another.
                                       • Always keep cooked foods separate from raw items.
                                         Store raw meat on a shelf below cooked items and
                                         produce in the refrigerator to prevent raw juices
                                         from contaminating other foods.
                                       • Never thaw meats at room temperature. Thaw your
                                         turkey in a refrigerator set below 40 degrees. Plan
                                         ahead because a 20-pound turkey will take about
                                         three days to completely thaw in the refrigerator.
                                       • Make sure foods are cooked to the proper tempera-
                                         tures (165 degrees for a whole turkey) to kill harm-
                                         ful bacteria.
                                       • NEVER leave perishable foods at room temperature
                                         for more than two hours.
                                       • Always keep hot foods hot and cold food cold. The
                                         danger zone for bacteria growth is between 40 and
                                         140 degrees.
                                       • Place leftovers in small containers so they will cool
                                         quickly and refrigerate as soon as possible. Be sure
                                         to eat leftover turkey within 3-4 days.
                                       • When in doubt, always throw out foods that you
                                         suspect may have been stored unsafely.

    I Never Want To Retire. . .
       Yes? No? Maybe?
       Some people want to work until they sail off into
  the sunset. Others may continue to work because they
  have to, while others can’t wait to quit and focus on
  other areas of their lives. None of these choices is
  wrong, but in whichever case you should plan for retire-
  ment. You may love your work and what you do for-
  ever, or you may realize that you have to work. Or your
  finances may be adequate enough that you don’t need
  to work. Regardless of your situation you should do
  some degree of planning.
        Planning your financial resource is a challenge, as
  the process is based on many unknown variables. It

  is not the only thing you need to plan for. Transitioning
  to the next stage in life doesn’t have to include a final
  retirement. You should include in your planning any area
  that would be pertinent to your happiness in that stage
  of life. Some of the areas you would want to include in
  your planning are:
      • What are your Retirement Options?
      • The how, what, when of the Transition Process.
      • Attitude toward Retirement.
      • The Reorientation Process.
      • Your Mental, Physical and Spiritual Health.
      • What is your leisure interest and do you need
        to create more?
      • How to enjoy and make this the best time
        of your life.
      These and many other areas can be identified and
  measured. Together we discover exactly what is right for
  you right now. Do you want to bypass all the costly mis-
  takes you’ll make trying to figure it out alone? I’m ready
  to walk you through a step by step process that can be
  the beginning for you to create the Retirement Life of
  Your Dreams.

      The Best to You!

                    cancer treatment,
                    without cutting.
                    CyberKnife is one of the greatest advances in cancer treatment technology,
                    and WellStar was the first health system in Georgia to have it.

                    CyberKnife has revolutionized cancer care. It’s a precision radiosurgery
                    system that can treat tumors anywhere in the body, including those
                    previously considered untreatable.

                    It beams radiation at your tumor, expertly targeting
                    cancerous cells. And, CyberKnife is completely
                    non-invasive. There’s no surgery, so there’s no
                    incision or scar.

                    Treatment takes just one to five visits.
                    So you’ll be home with your family in no time at all.
