Liberty Tax Service's armada of certified public accountants swoops in to rescue taxpayers from the onslaught of numbers, paperwork, and quadratic equations that overwhelms during tax season. Beyond computerized tax preparation and electronic filing during the months preceding April 15, clients can count on the company's expertise during an audit, through a correspondence with the IRS or state agencies, or while finding the best games living inside their graphic calculators. Liberty Tax Service also benefits community members outside of the office by sponsoring Relay for Life, a race benefitting the American Cancer Society, and by collecting unwanted cell phones and sending them to soldiers overseas.

Air Wiz Heating & Air Conditioning's owner, Tim Slattery, draws upon more than three decades of combined HVAC know-how as he manages the servicing of home cooling units in all major brands. During an air-conditioner tune-up, a licensed technician cleans grime off the condenser coil, flushes the condensation drain line and pan, and oils the motor until it purrs like a cyborg snow tiger. Keen eyes inspect all the wiring, compressor and motor-amp draws, and refrigerant levels, then give the evaporator coil a formidable ogling. Customers supply their own air filter, which the technician expertly pops into place to prevent dust or Roosevelt-era jokes from tickling homeowners' lungs.
