When Bill La Fleur decided it was time to open up a second restaurant, he enlisted the aid of his favorite chef in the world—his wife, Karen. Karen donned the chef’s hat and took charge of the restaurant’s kitchen, designing a menu of Italian and American dishes that have since been lauded by reporters from the Post-Standard. The skilled chef showers pasta in housemade sauces and hand rubs premium steaks in piquant, robust seasonings. To craft her old-fashioned fish-fry special, Karen breads fresh haddock before plating the crispy fillets alongside nests of fries and coleslaw.

Customers await meals out in the lively dining room, sipping glasses of fine wine and nibbling on freshly baked italian bread. Soft hanging lamps and the glow of televisions bathe the room in warmth. Throughout the month, the restaurant plays host to live-music performances and energetic parties celebrating everything from Christmas to moon landings.

Stacey, the proprietor of Stacey's Permanent Solutions, first opened the doors to her own salon 25 years ago. From humble beginnings, the business has expanded to a 1,000-square-foot salon with four additional stylists. Stacey's philosophy of “beauty from the inside out” and her own allergies undergird the salon’s use of natural, organic JKS, Holistix, and Retrohair salon products instead of harsh styling methods employing heavy-duty chemicals or belt sanders.

Stacey believes that her job isn't just about cutting, coloring, and conditioning hair. “It’s psychology, too,” she says, describing her way of setting clients at ease with conversation and soothing essential oils as she transforms their appearance. Her conviction that everyone should have the chance to both look and feel good has even inspired Stacey to offer at-home services for clients with special needs.

Awarded Best Martial Arts School in the Family Times' 2012 Besties Awards, Five Star Martial Arts teaches kids and parents alike the rapid-fire movements of martial arts. During youth programs, students aged 4 and older build stamina, dexterity, and intelligence through disciplined instruction at the hands of seasoned masters. Alongside typical belt rankings, badges and stars reward younger students as they master flurries of kicks and punches. Adult students find their own fitness rewards during cardio kickboxing, which blends an international potpourri of martial arts moves with calisthenic and aerobic foundations to form an explosive full-body workout that targets and tones major muscle groups across the body.

Trainers pair their fitness expertise with motivational attitudes, working one on one with students to help them on their path towards achieving personal wellness goals. Classes unfold within Five Star Martial Arts' recently expanded studio. There, new equipment and installations including a Tumbl Trak, a massive foam pit, and a collection of polyplus climbing ropes help trainers add complex gymnastics-inspired exercises to their already sizable arsenal of workouts.
