Sears Portrait Studio's original photographers committed their first family photos to film more than 60 years ago, and the studio's digital photographers continue the tradition of taking high-quality portraits at more than 1,000 U.S. locations open today. Each professional photographer completes a rigorous training program before they begin composing and shooting digital photographs, adopting styles ranging from formal portraits to passport photos. Their all-digital system lets customers access their photographs online, where they can add graphics before ordering prints for collages, greeting cards, mugs, and broken-mug collages.
The experienced instructors at The Club in Yulee whip bodies into shape with Zumba and Les Mills aerobic classes. Like a dumbbell-infused game of Simon Says, one-hour BodyPump workouts boost body discipline and challenge major muscle groups with squats, presses, lifts, and curls. Similarly demanding, RPM indoor-cycling treks tax lungs and spinning legs with an exacting cardio routine over a variety of simulated terrains, and BodyFlow sessions soothe stresses and improve core strength with moves from tai chi, yoga, and Pilates. Participants can burn calories with fiery dance steps and up-tempo Latin tunes during Zumba dance classes, which, unlike waltz boxing, combine workouts and dancing without the possibility of rejection from punching bags. To accommodate busy bees and busy humans, classes are scheduled throughout the week with convenient early-morning and evening classes.
Liberty Tax Service's armada of certified public accountants swoops in to rescue taxpayers from the onslaught of numbers, paperwork, and quadratic equations that overwhelms during tax season.

Liberty Tax Service also benefits community members outside of the office by sponsoring Relay for Life, a race benefitting the American Cancer Society, and by collecting unwanted cell phones and sending them to soldiers overseas.

Pacifica Care––headed by Dr. David Moss––strives to keep patients in strong physical and mental health with a wide variety of services, including nutritional counseling, massage therapy, psychiatric treatments, and emotional and behavioral counseling. Committed to spending more time with each patient than most facilities, the doctors, physician's assistants, counselors, and massage therapists aim to see new clients within 72 hours of the initial request, and they maintain later hours to accommodate those who have daytime responsibilities, such as spying on the sun. The facility's stock of nutritional supplements packs active phytonutrients ground from fresh, organically grown plants such as alfalfa and beets, as well as animal-extracted vitamins and minerals scraped from Mount Rushmore's last group facial.
