Joshua Baxter was born to move. As a child he was so entrenched in his family's auction business that when Joshua was 16, his father pulled him aside and told him it was time to take an active role. So, Joshua took his driver's test in the truck the family used to pick up merchandise, and at 19 he bought his own truck, handling the transportation of the often-valuable antiques. That skill and preternatural understanding of merchandise transportation led to the birth of Here To There Movers. Now, Joshua has trucks headquartered in five Midwest cities.
Here To There Movers' technicians know that the transport of belongings from one abode to another is one of life's most stressful affairs, even more than interviewing for a position at the local bomb diffusery. The licensed and insured staff can arrive at a moment's notice, equipped to handle bookshelves, boxes, and pianos. Here To There provides a frequently asked questions page and moving tips for the befuddled house-swapper or recreational vagrant.
In business more than 20 years, Maid Perfect deploys professional grime expungers to swiftly and thoroughly deep-clean domiciles. At a prearranged hour, typically a trio of licensed, bonded, and insured cleaners descends upon the customer’s chosen location, toting environmentally friendly, all-natural scrubbing supplies in their uniformed arms. Expert tidying ensues, leading to vacuumed floors, cleaned and sanitized sinks, curiously absent dust, and mirrors that reflect the homeowner’s thoughts. The neatening team also tackles toilets and sterilizes tubs, polishing every available surface in a whirlwind of purification that's personalized to each house's needs.
While Maid Perfect's maids are at work, customers can stay and supervise the fun or go out for a couple hours of clock watching before returning to a picked-up pad. Like outsourcing one’s chores to a sibling, the advent of newly livable living spaces means homeowners will suddenly have more time to pursue forgotten hobbies, such as killing seven in one blow. With flexible scheduling and a 100% satisfaction guarantee, Maid Perfect makes a point to form enduring relationships with their clients through reliable, professional cleaning each and every visit.

In 1903, Hammond’s first mayor, Marcus M. Towle, opened the Towle Opera House to provide the city with a venue for theatrical productions. Times changed, and with them the theater: the opera house became a cinema, and eventually a string of fashion shops moved into the space. The building seemed destined for a future of holographic retail, but in 2003—a century since the stage first opened—it was reborn as the Towle Theater. Since then, its intimate brick-lined confines have hosted such crowd-pleasing productions as The Musical of Musicals, the Musical and A New Brain.
Where prospectors once used the running waters of a river to search their hauls for gems and gold, Copperhead Creek Gem Mining Company employs a winding wooden sluice. Deputized geologists shovel scoops of raw material sourced from 12 mines into wire mesh sifters, allowing the current to carry off the dirt and reveal the colorful stones that lie within. The company also offers bags of mining rough that are likely to contain fossils and arrowheads, along with geodes that visitors can crack at home by using a hammer or throwing them really hard against a tree.
