Guests arriving for a family or professional portrait at Mikel's Fine Art Photography Portrait Studio may experience an inexplicable craving for a donut. That's because the 2,400-square-foot space was once home to a Winchell's Donut House. And Mikel J. Conrad would know; in an interview with the Henderson Press, Conrad explained that he worked at Winchell's as a senior in high school, going on to dabble in the security business before finding a job and nurturing his passion for photography with industry great Van Frazier. After honing his craft for nine years with Frazier, Conrad opened his own studio, complete with a charming country-rose garden and the latest technology in lighting and backgrounds. Conrad draws upon close to two decades of experience as he welcomes children and graduating seniors to his expansive studio or travels on-location for portrait or fine-art shoots. As an Eagle Scout and regular participant in current scouting activities, Conrad regularly donates time, money, and services to the Boy Scouts of America and other local groups. His scout training also helps him to restore old photos that have been damaged by the sun, water, or marshmallow-covered fingers.
Established in 1980 and nationally accredited by the NECPA, Creative Kids Learning Center fosters the development of children aged 18 months to 12 years while meeting each of the standards set forth by the "10 Signs of a Great Preschool." Inside colorful classrooms or outside on playgrounds, inspiration flows freely as kids participate in a curriculum that features such subjects as initiative, music and movement, and creative representation. The center's hands-on philosophy emphasizes five key components, including professionalism and education, which consistently shine through the words and actions of a staff that is certified in first aid, CPR, and refereeing wrestling matches between imaginary friends. Safety and health are also cornerstones of the business, resulting in toys, equipment, and classrooms being sanitized frequently.
ARS/Rescue Rooter of Nevada keeps residents of Clark and Nye counties as cool as penguins carved from cucumbers with quality air-conditioning service and customer care. ARS/Rescue Rooter’s commitment to high standards is reflected in its meticulous 17-step tune-up service and highly lauded texas two-step. Technicians begin the process by examining the operation and calibration of the thermostat, then they replace filters (supplied by the customers), check the temperature split, and inspect the fused disconnect. After a series of wiring, bearings, and mechanical inspections, technicians cap off the tune-up with a survey of the indoor and outdoor coils, a look-see at the ductwork, and a consultation with the customer on any repairs needed. After more careful good-cop/bad-cop questioning of the unit, ARS/Rescue Rooter’s techs tweak the tweakable to get any unit running as smoothly as a polar bear on an icy treadmill.
A certified military dog handler, we use strict military/police training style with verbal praise rather than shock collars or treats to train clients' dogs. He works a true trainer-canine bond into each effort, calling on decades of training experience with every dog he meets. Dogs soon learn how to live peaceably with their human companions as we reinforces on- and off-leash obedience and teaches them common commands such as "heel," "stay," and "sit."
