Audio Systems

Would you buy a sofa or chair without sitting on it? Of course not. It’s the same with audio equipment.

Buying something after reading about it is like buying a piano without playing it. At Audio Systems, you can hear the difference between different components (speakers, amplifiers, sources) so you can get the system that pleases you the most. You can’t do this at “big box” stores or on the internet.

If the system you might buy starts at about $1000, come see us. For the same amount of money, no “big box” store can equal our sound, and no “internet picked” system gives you the certainty that you have chosen what is best.

Dick Peterson Rainwater Harvesting
I have consulted on rainwater systems from 500 gallons to over 100,000 gallons. There is no best way to harvest and there is no best tank. Everything depends on your particular needs and site. I don’t start talking tanks until we have spent about an hour walking the property, checking the roof, discussing preferred cistern locations, etc. The tank is the last thing we consider.

Innovative Water Solutions

“The idea for our company began when the 2 partners, Chris Maxwell-Gaines and Blake West, met while serving in the U.S. Peace Corp in South America where we used rainwater every day.  We wondered why this resource was used so little in the U.S., and created a company to provide systems to help people harvest rainwater.

We are a full-service water conservation system design / build company that specializes in water demand and supply management in residential and commercial projects. We create rainwater harvesting, graywater reuse, and irrigation systems as well as drainage improvements and landscape solutions. “

Wiseman Family Practice

Our primary goal at Wiseman Family Practice is to provide  education in order to prevent disease. We believe the core problem with many of today’s health issues lies in inflammation caused by poor nutrition, stress, and toxins the body accumulates from unhealthy food, water, the environment, and other lifestyle choices. We seek to address these so the body can heal optimally.

In order to accomplish this we practice integrative medicine, meaning we use both alternative and conventional approaches.

When treating patients, our objective is to treat the whole person and to understand the root cause of disease. We always use lifestyle modifications or natural, more holistic therapies before using conventional pharmaceuticals, though we do use them when needed.
