Beatrice Country Club’s 18-hole course unfurls across 7,169 yards of Nebraska countryside for a par 72 course that blends elements of woodland golf and a traditional, links-style layout. The majority of the course’s fairways tunnel through tight tree lines that temper aggressive impulses at the tee box like a caddy studying to be an anger-management therapist. Encroaching timbers vanish for a stretch, during which relatively open fairways run alongside water hazards and thickets of tall grass, affecting the landscape of golf’s seminal Scottish links. With five tee options, the course caters to clubbers of all stripes. Arching drives trace the sky at the onsite driving range, where duffers prepare for their round and practice balls efficiently sign waivers before launching themselves into the stratosphere.
Dr. Steven Schulte, a 25-year veteran dentist, emphasizes both advanced technology and patient comfort in his practice at Auburn Dental Center. He and his team keep adult- and child-size teeth healthy with general, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry services. Intraoral cameras and digital x-rays—a safer alternative to traditional x-rays—diagnose problems precisely and easily, and headphones and televisions entertain patients during their exams and treatments. In addition to providing basic cleanings and exams, Dr. Schulte treats TMJ with night guards, beautifies smiles with teeth whitening and porcelain veneers, and performs root canals. He also can bestow clients with tooth-colored fillings, bridges, and crowns—the latter of which makes him very powerful when he visits monarchical countries.
Eyelashes are one of Tiffany Baustert's specialties. The licensed aesthetician painstakingly applies NovaLash eyelash extensions to help women looking to fill out depleted lash lines, cut down on their morning makeup routines, or walk down the aisle without their tears of joy sending streaks of mascara down their cheeks. It's all part of what Baustert sees as her primary mission as an aesthetician: to make women feel better about themselves.
To the same end, Baustert offers several services designed to address blemishes. Microdermabrasion and chemical peels can lessen scarring and damage left by acne and other skin woes, and Baustert's newly mastered microneedling technique promotes the body's natural collagen production. Baustert has spent much of her life in and around the beauty industry and is proud of the clinical precision and clear, medical-grade results her work can achieve.
Owned by certified personal trainer and elite martial artist Mike Bevard, Capital City Fitness Boot Camps combines intense interval-training workouts and nutritional wisdom to lean out physiques. During each of his boot-camp programs, he fortifies muscles with three weeks of 45-minute classes before letting them take some time off from working out and surreptitiously flexing in the mirror during a one-week rest period. The classes—grouped into themes that include strength training, core work, and kickboxing—channel positive reinforcement to drive home the advice of expert instructors.
Along with metabolism-boosting drills, custom meal plans steer clients toward more healthful eating habits. The camps' overarching goal is long-term wellness, and to that end, its staff has organized online resources, such as home exercises, to help prevent patrons from regaining lost weight. Specialty services can also augment fitness regimens, and include bridal-party boot camps, boot-camp charity fundraisers, and semiprivate personal-training sessions.
Owners Tataya and Thomas Radtke originally began Yoga Body & Balance in the living room of their home. Since then, they have expanded to new location with enough space to host the studio's eclectic assortment of yoga classes and bodywork treatments. Having studied Hatha, Ashtanga, and Anusara yoga, Tataya supervises varied sessions for a range of ages and skill levels, from gentle, introspective styles to vigorous, athletically based classes. This extensive range of opportunities allows students of various flexibilities to pursue a style that corresponds with the desired realism of their Gumby Halloween costume.
In addition to yoga, the center also treats visitors with various types of bodywork, such as Thai massage, Lakota raindrop technique, and sustained bear hugs. Alongside acupuncture sessions with a licensed therapist, these treatments work to target the symptoms of physical pain while also addressing the energetic imbalances believed to cause them.
