September 11, 2001, marked a similar turning point for Americans—a defining moment in our history. Like many people, I remember exactly what I was doing when the planes crashed into the twin towers. I remember 9/11 as a distant observer, watching shocked and horrified as the events of the day played out on my television screen. I was touched by the way New Yorkers responded to the crisis: helping each other to get out of the buildings, pulling strangers into storefronts and out of the dust cloud from the collapsing buildings, helping move people away from ground zero, and lining up to give blood. Even now, while typing these words my mind conjures up images of the heroic police, firefighters and emergency medical personnel who sacrificed so much for so many on 9/11 and the uncertain minutes, hours, days, weeks and months following the attacks. My respect for these everyday heroes has evolved into a deep admiration. Hence, my decision to photograph the Cobb police officers that keep the EAST COBBER Parade a safe event for the 2,000 participants and 10,000 parade watchers and festival goers. Putting Cobb County Police on the front cover is my way to honor their service. On this tenth anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and the crash of an airplane in a Pennsylvania field, we remember and honor the nearly 3,000 people who died that day with a National Day of Service and Remembrance. As President Obama said in a 9/11 speech last year, we should focus “not on the human capacity for evil, but the human capacity for good; not the desire to destroy, but the impulse to save and to serve and to build.” That is what the EAST COBBER focuses on this month-- and every month: “the human capacity for good.” By featuring stories about the good works of our East Cobb neighbors--from Ryan Ernstes, a teenager that created the Hot Lips Hustle 5K to Joseph Pond creating the Backyard Chicken Alliance to Erica Rountree’s mission trip, the EAST COBBER shines a light on our East Cobb neighbors’ intentions “to save, to serve and/or to build.” The 16th annual EAST COBBER Parade & Festival, to be held on September 10, is another way to showcase all that is good here in East Cobb County. East Cobbers—Americans—of all persuasions, all religious beliefs and ethnic backgrounds come together in peace and goodwill, showing the best this community has to offer. What a great way to defeat the evil of 9/11, and remind each other of our “capacity for good.” For 9/11, I remember, and I will not forget. Cynthia M. Rozzo Founder/Publisher email@example.com Featured on our front cover this month are some of the Cobb Police that are On assigned to work the EAST COBBER Parade. Pictured left to right are: Ofc.

THEN your skill becomes the rule,” says Patti. Patti, Bridge instructor of the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at the College of Continuing and Professional Education at Kennesaw State University, grew up watching her mother play Bridge with her friends. When she was old enough to play, Patti was instantly hooked on the game. Bridge was derived from an old game called ‘Whist’ at the end of the 19th century and has since evolved into a social delight for many societies. There are two ways to play Bridge. Duplicate Bridge requires only one partner and Contract Bridge lets you switch partners throughout the plays. “I teach Contract Bridge,” says Patti. “I want to get as many folks to the table as possible. By changing partners, you will be interacting with others more. I call this Social Bridge!” OLLI offers Bridge courses for beginners and advance beginners. “My courses attract beginners who have never even seen the game played before and those who ‘majored in Bridge in college,’” says Patti. “Patti has made learning Bridge a real fun experi- ence for the OLLI students. They love taking her courses and keep coming back,” says Michelle Girage, Assistant Director of OLLI. So, if you are up for a little social interaction that will challenge your mind, register now and reserve your spot! Next class begins September 12th at the Osher Lifelong Music By: The Sock hopS Learning Institute at KSU’s College of Continuing and Professional Education at 3333 Busbee Drive, Kennesaw.
