Having accrued 15 years of teaching experience, the staff members at Tennis Innovators prioritize exciting instruction and curriculums over barraging students with volley after volley. They appreciate the challenge of holding a child's interest and create fun drills for junior pupils, who can begin to learn racket-swinging techniques as early as age 3. The QuickStart and JuniorExtreme programs act as intriguing introductions to the sport for adolescents and work on improving their coordination, mobility, and athleticism, both on and off the court. In fact, they don't require a court to host their afterschool programs and will adapt lessons to fit any suitable space, such as a gymnasium or the least occupied patch of an in-use baseball diamond.
Classes aren't just for children—the staff hosts adult sessions aimed at improving overall game play and fitness in a supportive environment for fully formed humans of all skill levels. Staffers also lend their management expertise to neighborhood tennis clubs, providing guidance for hiring and training processes, court maintenance, and marketing.

Heating and air-conditioner installation has traditionally been a male-dominated field—that is, until Suzanne Kondra-DeFuria busted onto the scene. As one of only two women in New York to earn her heating license, Suzanne proved she could tune-up gas furnaces and improve a home’s air quality with the best of them. Getting the respect she deserved didn’t come easy, though. When she took the reins from Homer Potter, who started Potter Heating and Air Conditioning in 1944, she found that many of the company’s longtime customers and employees were unaccustomed to dealing with a powerful female executive. By putting her extensive education, experience, and Golden Rule leadership style to use, however, she eventually earned respect from her colleagues and clients, and she even became the first woman to serve as president of the Syracuse Heating and Air Conditioning Contractors Association. In fact she’s so tough that even while battling cancer she continued to grow the business and sit on the board of directors for multiple charitable institutions, including St. Joseph’s Hospital and AIDS Community Resource.
Today, she continues to channel her passion and impossibly strong work ethic into helming Potter Heating and Air Conditioning. Her team of seasoned experts travel to homes and commercial businesses with one goal in mind: to maximize comfort. To achieve this, they do everything from installing new furnaces and state-of-the-art Bryant air conditioners to fabricating their own ductwork to improve a home’s energy efficiency. And they even maintain a 24-hour emergency service, meaning they’re always available to handle any issues that arise or to remove any half-man, half-dust creatures found lurking in the ducts.
Imperial Cleaning Company's bonded and insured crews wield microfiber cloths to swipe dust off hard surfaces, steer two types of HEPA-filter vacuums across floors, and use Green Seal–certified cleaning solutions to kill household dirt and bacteria without leaving harmful residue. While performing big-picture cleaning—such as in kitchen, bathroom, and living-room areas—cleaners still pay close attention to the small areas where dirt settles, such as shower-door tracks, refrigerator tops, and doll teeth. As an end result, homes and commercial buildings are kept clean, wholesome, and free of hard chemicals.
