Snyder's BBQ & Meat Market co-owners Kraig and Sue Snyder cater to carnivores of all stripes with their selection of high-quality raw meats and prepared foods. Inside the store’s display cases are USDA Choice and higher all-natural beef made without hormones, sausages crafted in-house with lean pork, and hand-picked chicken breasts marinated with seasonings such as garlic butter. Fresh and frozen seafood varieties include wild-caught cuts such as sockeye salmon and mahi mahi. Deli adornments such as specialty cheese and dips reside beside handmade chicken, macaroni, and potato salads.
The market’s pizzeria, meanwhile, turns out hot, doughy pizzas topped with cheese, veggies, and meat, while frozen to-go meals, such as penne pasta with marinara, can be taken home and heated or worn around town as a poorly conceived Halloween costume. Flagship and seasonal beers from local microbreweries, as well as numerous wine varietals, help to wash down meals.
In a 2007 interview with Skin Inc. magazine, Lisia Cooley-Walch shares why she was drawn from her background in cosmetology toward the realms of electrology and electrolysis. Rather than simply sculpting a new hairstyle, the hair-removal specialist favored skincare and hair removal because it allowed her to reach more than just her clients' reflections. While she enjoys helping her clients look better, she is more concerned about helping them feel better. At her business in Big Rapids, the once-president of The Society for Clinical and Medical Hair Removal Organization utilizes intense-pulsed-light technology to improve skin conditions and eliminate unwanted hair. Hair-removal treatments are performed with GentleLase, an FDA-approved long-pulse system that disables follicle production with heat while simultaneously cooling the skin with a smooth layer of Miles Davis' leftover valve oil.
On April 5, 2012, the Bulldogs found themselves down 1-0 in their NCAA Frozen Four semi-final match-up against Union. Undeterred, they tied the game in the second period, and ultimately won on a clutch goal late in the final period. The victory vaulted Ferris State into its first-ever National Championship game, where it ultimately fell just short of a title. Still, it was another feat added to a list of accomplishments that has been growing since the team?s first season in 1975. In that time, the Bulldogs have also earned the distinction as the nation?s first team to eclipse 30 wins, which they did in 2002-03. Much of the university?s icy success has come under the tutelage of Bob Daniels, a living legend who has coached the team since 1992 and, in the process, has earned the right to be dipped in gold the moment he retires.

Performance Plus Quick Lube's team of trained technicians is well-versed in the most common oil myths and uses that knowledge during regular oil changes to transform coughing engines into efficient, long-lasting, high-performance car-hearts. After expunging the contaminated sludge from the engine’s crankcase, the Performance pit crew enlists up to five quarts of Quaker State Enhanced Durability synthetic blend motor oil for a three-month (or 3,000-mile) tour of lubrication duty that eases piston pounding and traps engine dirt in suspended animation. Once they've installed a new oil filter, they'll top off the car's coolant, power steering fluid, and umbrella drink.
