You can hear the pinging sound of a golf ball being mashed by a driver throughout The Sound Approach Golf Academy, an indoor studio where clubbers can groom their games year-round. The studio serves as a year-round practice venue with its golf simulator, which lets you drive, pitch, and putt your way through famous golf courses brought to life on an immense screen.
On any given day, the nonsimulated, three-dimensional PGA pro Jon Wilson can also be found in the studio dispensing advice in private and group lessons. From mid-March through October, Jon also conducts conventional lessons at Kleins’ Golf Range. He’ll even travel to area courses to provide playing lessons, during which golfers can gain insight into course management and how to fix ball marks with an extra-long fingernail.
Though quite experienced in the scientific field of traditional healthcare, Dr. Betty Brainerd, ND, believes the natural healing powers of the body can rival those of the lab. For more than 20 years, she has studied and practiced natural healing solutions in both hospitals and private clinics, listening to her patients' needs in order to create a personalized treatment plan that addresses them. Her treatments can reduce allergic reactions, balance bodily chemistry with nutritional supplements, ease chronic pain, or cleanse bodies of toxins and brains of all but the most useful state capitals.

In 1929, Tom Pinchbeck’s great grandfather traveled to Guilford with his family and staked their new territory with a massive greenhouse. For the next 79 years, Pinchbeck’s Rose Farm nurtured 100,000 rose bushes until highly industrial competition began to cloud their traditional production methods.
Rather than closing the doors on his farm, Pinchbeck restructured the business with his friend Jim Lyman. Lyman had been seeking a meaningful job opportunity for his son and other individuals on the autism spectrum. Through Roses for Autism—and in coordination with Ability Beyond Disability—Lyman and Pinchbeck aim to facilitate independence in the business world for individuals with autism. Employees at the farm take part in each step of the process by selecting roses, cutting stems, arranging bouquets, checking inventories, processing orders, and packaging shipments to be enjoyed by hungry bees and brides across the country.
Inflated structures, slides, and games fill the climate-controlled environs of the numerous BounceU locations that speckle the nation. At each site, staff members closely monitor all activities as little ones traverse obstacle courses or pull on oversized inflatable boxing gloves. The crew also invites parents to join in on the fun, letting them bounce alongside their kids or make sweeping edicts from atop a bouncy-castle throne. In addition to open sessions, the indoor-play haven sets the stage for the Preschool Playdate program, where instructors lead games and activities. Special events include family-bounce night, which lets parents join in the bouncing or relax in the party room and do grownup things, such as eat marshmallows with a knife and fork.
