At Synergy Chiropractic, Drs. David Klosterman and Ryan Zimmer entwine the holistic approaches of chiropractic, acupuncture, nutrition, and massage therapy.

In 1939, James Clark bought Belmont Pharmacy, where he had worked as store pharmacist. His son, James Clark Jr., followed him into the business, and eventually the enthusiastic, dedicated family began opening additional branches. Today, a third-generation Clark, Tim, oversees the operation of the eight locations.
Each location mingles old-fashioned corner-store friendliness with modern health-care tools. Medical equipment, such as lift chairs and canes, ease home life, as do prescription medications that can be delivered by a friendly staff member. The Huber Heights location also has a compounding pharmacy, in which highly trained workers customize prescriptions to individual needs, combining multiple medications into a single dosage, adding kid-friendly flavors, or carving each pill into the shape of a white blood cell.
Sprawled across Ed Martinek's 63-acre family farm, Adventure Acres cultivates a wholesome harvest of activities for pintsize and full-size visitors alike. Five corn mazes snake across a combined 11-plus miles of land, challenging navigators with twists and turns as onlookers and overly concerned scarecrows shout directions from an elevated watchtower. Scenic 30-minute hayrides explore the winding creeks and wildlife that meander peacefully across the grounds, and air-powered corn cannons equip trigger fingers with the power to launch ears up to 500 feet. After scouting the farm's outlying features, guests wrap back around to the petting zoo, where they can play with or try to elicit stock advice from tightlipped goats, horses, and cows.
As a teen, Ted Phillips learned to scale, clean, and fillet fish in Arcade Seafoods’ kitchen. Out front, he stocked shelves, scrubbed display cases, and mopped floors. The budding restaurateur’s devotion to Arcade Seafoods led him to purchase the business in 1992, and he’s been manning the counter ever since, as featured in the Dayton Daily News. Mr. Phillips maintains the eatery’s tradition of frying catfish, perch, and haddock in crispy batter, serving them with traditional Southern sides such as baked beans and hush puppies. :m]]
