Cimarron Trails Golf Club has a driving range, and for good reason; golfers would do well to warm up before taking to the course. The scorecard may not indicate a tough start to the round, but the first three holes pose, at the very least, considerable psychological challenges. Each one forces golfers to elude a water hazard; the par-three second hole presents a challenging forced-carry from the tee box. Ponds come into play on seven holes throughout the course, which lobs and weaves over 6,959 yards of bentgrass greens and bermuda fairways. Bunkers are also a fixture throughout the round, though many serve as helpful visual guides as well as hazards and ideal places to bury broken golf carts.

Originally built in 1945 and redesigned by renowned golf architect Tripp Davis in 1998, Lakeside Golf Course’s 18-hole layout spans 6,756 yards of pristine terrain dotted with mature oak trees. The men's par 70 and women's par 71 course has served as a training ground for several veteran PGA Tour winners, including Scott Verplank and Bob Tway. The course’s rolling, bermuda-grass fairways blend into its bentgrass greens, ensuring a smooth surface for putting or lying down to catch golf balls in your teeth.
After injuring himself during a high-school soccer game, Shawn Pomeroy couldn't shake an aching head and neck. He eventually saw a chiropractor to treat the pain, and found that it subsided after regular adjustments. Now a chiropractor himself, Dr. Pomeroy hasn’t lacked for loyalty: he still sees the same doctor for his weekly appointment. His nearly 15 years of experience have only strengthened his belief in the power of spinal science, which he practices at two welcoming offices.
Pomeroy Chiropractic Wellness approaches back, neck, and head ailments from both preventive and rehabilitative angles. The staff scout for subluxations—misaligned bones putting pressure on nerves—with exams and x-rays, soothe muscular tension with massage, and educate patients on proper spinal care by demonstrating how to floss between vertebral disks. As for adjustments, Dr. Pomeroy can utilize his hands or a chiropractic instrument to try to correct backbone imbalances. His focus on family care means that both parents and children can benefit from his personalized, gentle treatments.

Growing up in Benton, Kansas, fourth-grade pals Monte Ysidro and Jason Bell were probably more focused on seeing the chalkboard clearly than opening a collection of high-end fashion optical boutiques. And yet, beginning in 2002, that's just what they did, starting out humbly in a 10'x10' kiosk at a local mall. Today, friendly eyewear experts at each Specs location point guests in the direction of designer frames and prescription sunglasses by brands such as Gucci and Versace. The crew also employs advanced technology to create lenses with high-performance coatings, custom-fit curves, and high definition, which allow wearers to make out the moon's facial expression.
