Nestled against the rolling hills of the Fontenelle Forest, Fontenelle Hills Golf Club's nine holes morph daydreams of long-distance ball conveyance into quickly accessed realities for area golfers. Sharpen club-wielding skills on the 32 par red course or the 34 par blue course, surrounded by lush flora and fauna, including roaming deer and their cartoon-bunny sidekicks. Whether sharing a fairway excursion with a partner or stretching two solo rounds between visits, golfers discover challenging chip shots thanks to the courses' dual pin placements and tee boxes. The club boasts more than 2,000 yards of inviting green vistas, allowing guests to putt the day away without the cramped conditions and property damage of in-home driving ranges. Players schlep clubs and cohorts around Fontenelle's scenic pastures behind the wheel of one of the club's motorized carts.

Sidney Sweeper & Vacuum stocks a variety of bags and belts, but it's not a clothing store. Instead of accessorizing outfits, staff members focus their efforts on repairing, maintaining, and selling vacuum cleaners. Technicians trained in the electronics-refurbishing arts revive broken units from a number of brands, including Oreck and Electrolux.
Blockbuster Express reboots the home-video experience of yore with more than 200 video-vending kiosks conveniently located in Atlanta with thousands more nationwide.

The YMCA of Greater Omaha brings people together at 10 locations with character-building programs that strengthen participants' involvement in their community. Adults can get a head start on their New Year's fitness resolutions with body sculpting, Pilates, and other tummy-toning group fitness classes, while kids can expend some energy at a drop-in child-care center that is free while parents work out. YMCA members also enjoy reduced rates on swim lessons and youth sports, as well as free senior programs. All locations except the LaFern Williams Y offer indoor pools for aquatic antics that cannot be properly enjoyed in a bathtub's limited splashing-real estate.
Since 1939, Culligan Heartland has delivered quality drinking water to homes. The crisp, refreshing water—free of impurities, such as sodium, lead, or chlorine—arrives in a signature blue water-cooler bottle, ready to sit atop rentable home systems. Alternatively, the company’s bottle-free systems filter and soften home water, ensuring that drinking, bathing, and sleeping waters all remain clean. Before installation or delivery, or even if homeowners aren’t planning to do either, Culligan’s water experts will perform a free water analysis, identifying contaminants and providing a detailed estimate for any desired services.
