Naturally Yours Salon & Spa‎ arms its staff with organic Aveda products to help create new hairstyles and refresh visages during facials. Clients can change their hues with ammonia-free hair color, and Zoya nail polish—which is void of formaldehyde and tolene—marks the edges of fingers, toes, and football fields. The salon itself follows a sustainable standard: most of the furnishings are secondhand, many of the products used are packaged in 100% recyclable materials, and water is filtered rather than bottled or siphoned from a fish tank.

Food has always been important to the Knudson family. Kal Knudson built a career as a leader in the restaurant industry and, with the rest of the family, established a holiday tradition of serving meals to the homeless. When his son, Kevin Knudson, decided to open a restaurant of his own, he named it Greenfield’s both for the rolling pasture beyond the building’s big, covered patio and as a nod to a piece of scripture that reminded him of his dad. The menu and the ambiance also carry on the family tradition in their way, designed to appeal to families of all kinds and give even large groups enough options for everyone to go home full. Homestyle staples include roast beef, meatloaf, and pasta, but the chefs aren’t afraid to put their own twists on the classics: the grill turns out a euro burger topped with basil pesto and feta cheese along with a peanut-butter burger, voted 1 of the top 10 burgers in the state by the Nebraska Beef Council and the Nebraska Peanut Gallery.

Nature photographs by John Coffey line the dining-room walls, creating a rustic atmosphere with help from decorative grasses and wrought-iron pendant lamps. But Knudson and his team don’t confine their food to the handsome dining room—all these years later, they still follow in Kal’s footsteps by occasionally warming the bellies of the community with random doses of hot chocolate and chicken soup.

Anthony Hensley and his wife, Rosie, have gone to great lengths to offer something for everybody at B&J's Family Restaurant and Lounge. As a result of working in bars and restaurants for more than 30 years, Hensley believes he knows what people like to eat when they dine out, which is why he offers such an eclectic menu of American comfort food. There’s pasta for those who like a little Italian, homemade strudel, battered cod, even puerto rican tacos made with picadillo––a latin american hash traditionally made from ground beef and tomatoes.

But no matter what people order, Anthony and Rosie have ensured that the food is as fresh as possible. "We cut our own lettuce for salads," he explained. "Mostly use Omaha beef. Order local bakeries. We try and shop local for everything."

Anthony describes B&J's dining room as having a "kind of a small town, hometown feel," complete with diner-style booths, pinball machines, video games, and antique parking meters that only accept gold doubloons. It’s the type of place where regulars frequently gather, shooting the breeze at the full-service bar or whacking balls around the pool table. "Some of the regulars," he said, snickering, "my son, Tony, beats them at pool. I taught him how to play when he was 7. The thing is, he's only 12 years old."
