Superior Rents' owners, Dan and Steve Wohnoutka, trace the genesis of their business back to their own childhoods spent on a modestly equipped farm. With an appreciation for how proper tools and equipment can make projects run smoother, they decided to stock three locations with plumbing, construction, and lawn-care equipment for homeowners and contractors to rent on an hourly, daily, or weekly basis. Their online catalog hosts a roster of rental equipment, from power drills for household projects to forklifts for hanging Do Not Disturb signs on asteroids. Customers can arrange for equipment to be delivered to their work site or drop by one of three locations—including a newly opened site in Springfield—to pick up gear.

Since establishing her studio nearly 10 years ago, Beth has managed to preserve the vows, kisses, and first dances of more than 450 newlyweds. She often photographs weddings alongside her own husband, Tim, who shoots high-definition video footage that their website claims should include a "you'll cry" guarantee. Though these ceremonies are her specialty, Beth also snaps family and high school senior portraits, as well as flirty boudoir albums. She can travel to specific locations that produce picturesque prints, or pose subjects in her studio against a variety of professional backdrops.
