Shannon Campbell specializes in preparing clients for armed self-defense, with an emphasis on safe practices when within the home. At an outdoor range that more closely elicits the feel of a neighborhood backyard than a shooting gallery, Shannon demonstrates proper firearm operation before supervising clients as they apply what they've learned. In addition to this coaching, he leads a Refuse To Be A Victim seminar, which teaches participants how to maintain awareness in threatening situations, such as a world ice-cream shortage, and how to prevent a criminal confrontation. He also hosts Little Sportsman sessions, which educate youths on how to responsibly handle a firearm while building community.

The knowledgeable instructors of MacAir Aviation Services take aspiring aviators aloft during 30-minute simulated flights. Pupils climb into a mock cockpit to roam the wild blue pixels as aeronautical mentors dispense helpful advice regarding aircraft control, instrumentation readings, and swiping the freshest grapes from Amelia Earhart's cloud-top villa. Preflight, students can fuel up by sipping complimentary coffee or garner elevation inspiration while watching the comings and goings of airplanes that stop by the full-service fixed-base operator for fuel, supplies, and maintenance.

There's no speed requirement on the Little Miami River—drifting leisurely on a tube is just as respectable as cutting through the water in a sleek kayak. Both vehicles afford scenic views, as well as opportunities to rest and swim. Of course, there's always the canoe to consider. The large boats fit up to three people, making them the most social of the three options at Bellbrook Canoe Rental. Pairs and trios can take them on one of two jaunts down the river's path: a 3-mile trip beginning at Bellbrook Bridge, or a 5.2-mile trip that departs from Narrows Reserve in Beavercreek.

Regardless of the route, each adventure satisfies first-time paddlers and expert boaters alike. The family-owned rental company has 160 canoes and kayaks that they lend to small groups as well as schools, scouting organizations, and astronauts who would prefer to ease into the water portion of their weightlessness training. For gatherings off the water, there's also three shelter houses available to customers free of charge.

Since 1983, the deli wunderkinds at Current Cuisine have been crafting fresh sandwiches, salads, and breads while maintaining a high standard of customer service. The menu's breakfast bites, such as a sandwich constructed from local eggs and sausages ($2.99), occupy hands and mouths in the morning with an activity other than yawning. Lunch and dinner sustenance comes by the fistful in the form of overstuffed sandwiches that include the turkey provolone or the veggie with house-made hummus, local sprouts, red peppers, and cucumbers on focaccia ($4.99 each). In addition, the deli stocks its shelves with international groceries and delivers vitamins and minerals by the pound through a diverse selection of salads, such as chicken salad with red grapes and almonds ($6.99/lb.), spring marinated veggies ($5.49/lb.), and curried tofu salad ($6.99/lb.). Current Cuisine’s ovens also pop with fresh breads, otherworldly pastries, and flaky jack-in-the-boxes.

For nearly 30 years, the stain-ousters at Quality Dry Cleaning have relinquished apparel and linens of grime and fabric-marring spots. During cleanings, delicate items such as blouses and scarves receive careful attention, and two-piece suits and neckties regain their fresh, presentable appeal after business-meeting coffee fights. An Ugg boot cleaning spruces up footwear weathered from stomping through snow, slush, and salted sidewalks, and a comforter cleaning expunges regular or down bedding of spills from late-night snacking or the ever-clumsy Sandman.
