The snapshot rejuvenators at Odee's Photography reconstruct tattered and faded images into brand-new keepsakes. A technician can breathe new life into portraits ravaged by time, poor storage, or dogs tired of ingesting homework after scanning photos sent via email or physical mail, or dropped off in person. Each scanned image is bolstered by a series of programs that erases rips, fades, and stains, and adds color or tricorn hats when requested. The technician then sends a proof of the pictures back to patrons via email for approval. After the images are satisfactorily restored, the frozen life moments are emblazoned onto a 4"x6" print and captured on a CD before the original pictures and their new reproductions make their way home in the mail. Customers can also elect to pick up their prints or receive them through email.
Originally a 9-hole course upon its opening in 1978, community-owned The Bridges at Claresholm expanded into an 18-hole course in 2005 after designer Les Furber spent four years expertly crafting a back nine. Four tee boxes and attachable Gadget arms precede each hole, allowing patrons to adjust their distance to the green and driving angle to better avoid obstacles such as 12 water hazards. The Bridges at Claresholm also employs golf expert Lyle Broderson to offer private, semiprivate, or group lessons to golfers looking to make improvements, and hosts tournaments and male, female, and gopher leagues. Additionally, an on-site pro shop supplies participants with essential gear such as balls, clubs, and golf-suitable clothing, and Putter's Restaurant & Catering in the facility's clubhouse satiates visitors with weekly specials such as the Friday-night all-you-can-eat fish fry.
