Yorktown Golf & Baseball Center is best described by its sounds: the whiffing of clubs on the driving range, the steely rattling of baseballs on batting-cage walls, and the gentle burbling of the mini-golf course's waterfalls. Surrounded by verdant greenery, the 14-acre sports center offers outlets for competitive players and casual ball-whackers alike, beginning with an 18-hole mini-golf course replete with obstacles such as waterways and feral know-it-all golf pros. Within the four baseball and softball batting cages, pitches hurl toward batters at speeds ranging from 40 mph to 85 mph. Practice shots soar from the two-tiered driving range's 36 covered hitting stations, and players hone their short games on the putting greens and sand traps. In addition to providing ample practice opportunities, the center staffs a stable of knowledgeable golfers and batters to lead private and semiprivate lessons and curate a full pro shop.

When Paul Melella, Jr. was seven years old, he was the target of a neighborhood bully. Eventually, Paul’s mother enrolled him in martial arts classes. For six months, Paul secretly studied the art of tae kwon do, until one day, he finally had the courage to stand up to his bully. Not only did the boy stop picking on Paul, they became good friends. In fact, Paul was even the best man at his wedding years later, where he helped out by cutting the cake with one swift roundhouse kick.

Paul established the Carmel branch of United Martial Arts Centers in 1996 to help others attain the same self-confidence and lifelong benefits that he found practicing martial arts as a child. Today, Paul is just one of UMAC's many professional instructors who lead programs for children, adults, and families at five different locations. Despite their different addresses, each of UMAC's locations sports the same positive atmosphere and spirit that comes from students working together toward a common goal.

It’s a good bet not every dentist in the world knows how to keep your heart from stopping. But Dr. Joseph Zaky’s more than 20 years of experience boast that level of training. Postgraduate courses in such advanced techniques as restorative and cosmetic dentistry have spilled into areas such as cardiac life support, allowing the doctor to beautify patient smiles while guarding them against unforeseen circumstances.

In dental practice alone, Dr. Zaky excels at rebuilding and reshaping smiles. In addition to their function of chewing and hissing at burglars, teeth are load-bearing structures that support the face and, to a great extent, determine the face’s overall appearance. Understanding this concept, Dr. Zaky applies his keen eye for facial structure and the aesthetics of the smile, alongside his specialties in dental implants and restorations, to help to improve outward appearances. At the same time, conscientious general dentistry staves off timeless dental issues such as tooth decay and gum disease.
