The gas purveyors of Propane Central empower grills across Kansas. Hopeful barbecuers bring their depleted vessels to one of four offices to receive a 20-pound barbecue-propane-cylinder recharge so that they may continue charring steaks or roasting incriminating laptops full of fan fiction about C-SPAN commentators. The office is open for immediate transfusions from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday–Friday.
Serving savory subs since 1956, the friendly bread bookenders at Jersey Mike’s employ fresh ingredients to gift diners with an extensive menu of handheld eats assembled directly before eager mouths. Sink your ivories into cold subs such as the Jersey Shore's Favorite, where generous slices of provolone, ham, and cappacuolo arrive layered with onions, lettuce, tomatoes, vinegar, and a sprinkling of oil and spices ($4.29–$8.95, depending on size). Chilly diners dissatisfied with standard whole-wheat sleeping bags can warm up next to hot subs such as the Big Kahuna Cheese Steak ($6.95/reg, $10.75/giant) or the chicken parm's infusion of melted provolone, tomato sauce, and parmesan ($6.25/reg, $9.75/giant). Diners seeking munchables as light as a CGI feather can sample the fresh-tossed salad ($3.99) or tuna salad ($6.25). The friendly sandwich sculptors will also happily customize any 'wich to your whims, offering a host of vegetarian options or the utensil-friendly Sub in a Tub, which mixes the ingredients in a bowl sans bread.
For more than 125 years, YMCA of Topeka has been helping people bolster their muscles, and today invites people to tone up in three full-service facilities and the 175-acre outdoor fitness retreat, Camp Hammond.

Hone your physique in any of the more than 120 fitness classes (certain classes require additional fees), including aquatic fitness classes that proffer workouts that are as comforting to joints as an obstacle course made of marshmallows. Outdoors enthusiasts can also explore Camp Hammond's 15-acre lake, swimming dock, canoes, and nature trails. Included in today's deal is a coaching session with a trained wellness coach to discuss goals and receive an introduction to the fitness equipment.

Pro Tip: We love spending time in contact with our customers.
What sets your business apart from your competition?
At this time, availability, but generally we work hard on preparation for the shoot, beginning with a free consultation to assist our customers in customizing their own work. We may be the photographer, but many ideas come from the minds of our clients.
What was the inspiration for starting this business?
I decided it was important for me to begin to work out and create my own ideas.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Yes, we shoot on-location primarily, as we do not have a studio.
What’s your favorite part about your job?
My independence and the ability/desire to present the reality of what I'm photographing.
A beaming, tutu-clad youngster poses by a large number 2, commemorating her new age. A couple, nearly newlywed, strolls through a sepia-tinged park holding hands. A brindled puppy with floppy ears capers across a red wooden wagon. These are just a few of the shots that the photographers at Worth A 1000 Words Studio have captured during their tenure at the memory emporium. Both in-studio and on-location shoots cover the gamut of photogenic opportunities, from senior portraits to weddings to adorable pictures of babies disguised as bunnies or even smaller babies.
