Established in December of 2000, The Framers Edge safeguards artwork, photographs, and keepsakes with quality framing materials in a range of styles and designs. Paintings rest behind polished glass, photos reside within metallic frames, and 3-D objects such as athletic jerseys and slightly used surgical gloves maintain their luster inside shadowboxes. Custom framing projects also include conservation framing, as well as canvas stretching and transfers.
When a widespread skunk infestation effecting Chicago suburbs made national headlines, media outlets such as USA Today, NPR, the Chicago Sun-Times, and WLS 890AM with John and Lauren hailed ABC Humane Wildlife Control & Prevention as the front lines of humane defense. Since its founding by university-trained naturalist Garon Fyffe in 1976, the team of animal experts has deftly removed unwanted animals, pests, and birds from homes and businesses. Each of the 35 state-licensed wildlife control experts employs humane processes to sniff out pest problems and solve the underlying issues, such as gaps in the foundation, tree limbs offering easy roof access, or handbills lying around offering employment in return for cheese.
The power of the mind is impossible to measure. But through her practice, certified hypnotherapist and licensed counselor Diane Sullivan helps her clients overcome difficult life transitions and self-defeating behaviors using their own inner strength. With training in clinical, medical, and pain-management hypnotism, she focuses on issues that may include weight loss, smoking cessation, or reproductive problems. During a session, she taps into the patient's subconscious mind and guides them to take control of their habits. Using the relaxed mind as a suggestible canvas, a hypnotic gastric band session encourages limiting food intake for weight loss and stress management hypnotherapy helps clients deal with pressure.
Dr. Mike McGovern first experienced the power of chiropractic at the age of 12, when a wrestling injury sent him crawling into a chiropractor's office and the doctor's adjustments sent him out pain-free. While chiropractic care remains the foundation of Mind Body Spirit Wellness, its founder has also come to recognize the key importance of nutrition in maintaining the changes manual adjustments produce over months or years. For new clients, Dr. Mike begins with an initial wellness assessment, which tests the body’s calcium levels, adrenal gland function, body fat percentage, and response to various flavors of Skittles. Then, he'll work to develop a custom course of treatment, which may involve traditional chiropractic techniques, massage, or even correcting hormone imbalances in the quest to ease conditions such as musculoskeletal pain, sleep problems, or digestive disorders.
Fed up with hearing about rude encounters between taxi drivers and the elderly, taxi dispatcher Dan Quiery decided to volunteer time in his retirement to righting these wrongs through Escorted Transportation Service Northwest (ETS/NW). Now the organization's 2011 Volunteer of the Year, according to the Daily Herald, Dan and a team of 70 volunteer drivers at ETS/NW offer both companionship and a vital service as they transport senior citizens to and from medical and dental appointments in the northwest suburbs of Chicago. The seniors often have limited transportation options and would not be able to get to their appointments without aid. Though $12 donations are requested for each ride, the drivers chip in their own money to cover the cost of the trip's gas. Still, this does not deter founder Kathy Kasprowicz and her dedicated volunteers—honored with the 2012 STAR Merit Award from The Beverly Foundation—who were proud to have provided 2,453 roundtrip rides throughout the region in 2011 alone.
