Awarded Best Beauty School of 2009 by the U.S. Commerce Association, Cosmix School of Beauty deploys a cadre of nail-clinic pupils to renovate finger and toe armor under the expert guidance of qualified instructors. Employing high-end nailcare products by brands such as OPI, claw scholars first trim and file nails into smooth half-moons or craggy full-Plutos. After a blitz of meticulous buffing imbues digit shields with eye-blinding shine, the patron’s choice of polish instills fingernails, toenails, and dowdy wooly mammoth tusks with a piercing new color.
There's only one runway at Marlboro Airport, which facilitates approximately 37 flights each day. That single airstrip's legacy, however, surpasses that of many international airports. The airport dates all the way back to 1922, making it the oldest continuously operating commercial field in the state. The excitement didn't really start until 1946, though, when some of the airport's pilots became instructors and began training a new generation of pilots.
That flight school would become Don's Flying Service, commemorating former airport manager Don LaCouture Sr. Today, its FAA-certified instructors still help new pilots earn their wings. The airport's small size lets the instructors give students ample personal attention, as well as allows them to take on the roles of mentors during private ground and flight training sessions.
