Two Â of Â the Â cuts Â made Â on Â Monday Â triggered Â the Â most Â debate Â â€” Â road Â salt Â and Â the Â requests Â from Â ACEDC Â and Â ACTR.

When Â faced Â with Â the Â prosSHFW RI FXWWLQJ PRUH RXW RI LWV PLOOLRQ EXGJHW WKH 0LGGOHEXU\ VHOHFWERDUG VSHQW WRXJK PLQXWHV RQ Monday Â searching Â the Â budgetâ€™s Â line Â items Â for Â a Â few Â extra Â dollars Â here Â and Â WKHUH7KH\FRPHXSZLWKMXVWXQGHUZLWKDQRWKHUVWLOOWR ÂżQGWRNHHSWKHSURSRVHGWD[KLNHFDSSHGDWFHQWV 6HOHFWERDUG PHPEHU 1LFN$UWLP VXJJHVWHG FXWWLQJ LQ RQH OLQH LWHPOHVVVDOWXVHRQUHVLGHQWLDOVLGHURDGV7KHWRZQKDGEXGJHWHG for Â the Â year. Â The Â townâ€™s Â main Â thoroughways, Â he Â said, Â would Â continue Â getting Â the Â same Â treatment Â as Â in Â the Â past, Â but Â he Â suggested Â cutting Â back Â on Â the Â use Â of Â so Â much Â salt Â on Â the Â townâ€™s Â side Â roads Â and Â ask Â residents Â to Â adapt Â to Â winter Â driving Â conditions Â without Â the Â â€œdry-Âroadsâ€? Â policy Â the Â town Â currently Â follows. We Â couldnâ€™t Â agree Â more. Â While Â many Â town Â residents Â obviously Â appreciate Â snow Â covered Â roads Â to Â be Â plowed Â clear, Â salted Â and Â returned Â to Â the Â dry-Âroads Â condition Â of Â a Â summer Â day, Â itâ€™s Â an Â expensive Â process Â and Â an Â unnecessary Â luxury. Â We Â live Â in Â Vermont. Â It Â snows Â here Â in Â winter. Â Residents Â should Â be Â expected Â to Â take Â personal Â responsibity Â to Â drive Â safely Â on Â snow-Âcovered Â roads Â â€” Â especially Â the Â side Â roads Â serving Â residential Â areas. The Â primary Â roads Â through Â the Â town Â and Â throughout Â the Â downtown, Â out Â to Â the Â hospital, Â and Â primary Â residential Â access Â roads Â (like Â Washington Â Street Â Extension Â and Â Seminary Â Street Â Extension) Â and Â those Â serving Â the Â schools Â and Â business Â districts Â (such Â as Â Exchange Â Street) Â would Â be Â plowed Â and Â salted Â DV XVXDO EHFDXVH WKH DEXQGDQFH RI WUDIÂżF WKHUH PDNHV D GU\URDGV SROLF\ smart Â from Â a Â safety Â perspective. Â Similarly, Â there Â may Â be Â a Â few Â roads Â on Â steep Â inclines Â (the Â Chipman Â Hill Â area, Â for Â example) Â that Â deserve Â special Â treatment Â for Â safety Â reasons. Â But Â for Â most Â of Â the Â townâ€™s Â residential Â areas Â and Â off-Âshoots Â in Â the Â more Â rural Â areas Â of Â town, Â a Â saner Â policy Â of Â winter Â snow Â removal Â makes Â sense. Â Such Â a Â change Â could Â also Â reduce Â the Â number Â of Â passes Â snowplows Â PDNHRYHUDVSHFLÂżFVWUHWFKRIURDGSURGXFLQJVDYLQJVLQJDVROLQHXVHGDQG a Â reduction Â in Â overtime Â hours. Â Suddenly, Â youâ€™re Â talking Â real Â savings. Nor Â would Â Middlebury Â be Â pioneering Â new Â policy Â by Â not Â using Â as Â much Â salt Â on Â side Â roads, Â and Â not Â getting Â them Â back Â to Â dry Â asphalt Â within Â a Â day Â or Â two Â after Â winter Â storms. Â As Â Artim Â discovered Â in Â Syracuse, Â N.Y., Â that Â big Â Northeastern Â city Â has Â a Â successful Â snow Â removable Â policy Â that Â limits Â salt Â use Â on Â side Â roads. Â Similarly, Â many Â mountain Â towns Â in Â the Â West Â simply Â accept Â that Â theyâ€™ll Â be Â driving Â on Â snow-Âcovered Â roads Â throughout Â the Â winter, Â and Â hail Â WKHLUURDGFUHZVDQGWRZQRIÂżFLDOVIRUNHHSLQJWKHURDGVDFFHVVLEOH The Â dry-Âroads Â policy Â in Â Middlebury Â certainly Â produces Â clean, Â dry Â roads Â for Â much Â of Â the Â winter;Íž Â and Â no Â one Â can Â argue Â that Â the Â road Â crews Â arenâ€™t Â doing Â their Â jobs Â well. Â But Â if Â the Â argument Â against Â changing Â the Â policy, Â as Â Public Â Works Â Director Â Dan Â Werner Â suggested Â at Â Mondayâ€™s Â meeting, Â is Â that Â some Â people Â might Â get Â upset Â if Â the Â roads Â stayed Â snowy, Â and Â furthermore, Â that Â it Â ZRXOGEHGLIÂżFXOWIRUSXEOLFZRUNVWRNQRZZKLFKURDGVWRVDOWDQGZKLFK would Â not Â be Â salted, Â well, Â thatâ€™s Â not Â much Â of Â a Â defense Â of Â the Â status Â quo. Â The Â reason Â not Â to Â change Â the Â current Â policy Â would Â be Â if Â it Â would Â place Â the Â public Â in Â unncessary Â danger, Â or Â if Â change Â would Â not Â yield Â the Â expected Â savings. Â But Â if Â those Â two Â arguments Â cannot Â be Â made, Â and Â the Â town Â can Â provide Â reasonably Â safe Â roads Â at Â substantial Â savings, Â by Â all Â means Â letâ€™s Â look Â at Â changing Â the Â current Â policy.

Porterâ€™s Â miscalculation In Â doing Â the Â right Â thing, Â Porter Â got Â slapped Â around Â by Â the Â state Â regulatory Â agency Â for Â miscalculating Â how Â much Â a Â new, Â electronic Â medical Â records Â sys-Â tem Â would Â cost. Â The Â Middlebury Â hospital Â took Â on Â the Â challenge Â of Â converting Â WRDGLJLWDOYHUVXVSDSHU EDVHGÂżOLQJV\VWHPRISDWLHQWÂśVUHFRUGVEHFDXVH it Â believed Â it Â would Â provide Â better Â patient Â care Â in Â the Â long-Âterm Â at Â less Â cost. Â Porterâ€™s Â mistake Â was Â in Â estimating Â the Â cost Â of Â the Â IT Â ststem Â far Â too Â low, Â partially Â because Â it Â assumed Â it Â could Â handle Â some Â of Â the Â transition Â on Â its Â RZQ7XUQVRXW3RUWHUZDVIRUFHGWRPDNHPRUHFXVWRPL]HGFKDQJHVWRÂżWLWV processes Â than Â expected;Íž Â and Â the Â time Â it Â took Â to Â get Â its Â staff Â up Â to Â speed Â took Â far Â longer Â than Â anyone Â expected. Â The Â result Â is Â that Â an Â IT Â project Â that Â was Â sup-Â SRVHGWRFRVWPLOOLRQLVUXQQLQJSHUFHQWRYHUEXGJHW To Â remedy Â those Â cost Â overruns, Â the Â stateâ€™s Â regulatory Â body, Â the Â Vermont Â Department Â of Â Financial Â Regulation Â (DFR), Â had Â to Â play Â tough Â with Â Porterâ€™s Â management Â and Â board Â oversight Â (see Â story Â Page Â 1A), Â but Â just Â last Â week Â ap-Â SURYHGDPLOOLRQWRWDOH[SHQGLWXUHIRUWKHSURMHFWÂ˛DOORZLQJ3RUWHUWR get Â on Â with Â its Â business Â of Â creating Â a Â better Â health Â care Â facility. Hereâ€™s Â whatâ€™s Â good Â about Â that Â process. Â Through Â the Â stateâ€™s Â DFR, Â the Â public Â has Â a Â state Â agency Â that Â is Â overseeing Â hospital Â budgets Â close Â enough Â to Â spot Â waste, Â cost-Âoverruns, Â potential Â mismanagement Â and Â unnecessary Â overlaps Â in Â service. Â With Â the Â cost Â of Â health Â care Â booming, Â that Â oversight Â helps Â protect Â consumers Â from Â even Â higher Â costs. But Â hereâ€™s Â whatâ€™s Â silly: Â Porterâ€™s Â error Â was Â not Â because Â of Â gross Â misman-Â agement Â of Â the Â system, Â but Â in Â under-Âestimating Â how Â much Â the Â system Â would Â cost. Â Back Â in Â 2010, Â if Â Porter Â had Â projected Â the Â cost Â of Â the Â improved Â system Â ZRXOGEHPLOOLRQDQGMXVWLÂżHGWKDWLWLVOLNHO\WKDWUHJXODWRU\V\VWHP would Â have Â approved Â that Â expense Â and Â Porter Â would Â have Â come Â close Â to Â its Â EXGJHW1RSUREOHP%XWEHFDXVHRIÂżFLDOVDW3RUWHUDVVXPHGWKLQJVZRXOGJR smoothly Â and Â they Â wanted Â to Â budget Â as Â close Â to Â actual Â expenses Â as Â possible Â ZLWKRXW LQĂ€DWLQJ LWV EXGJHW IRU VXFK FRQWLQJHQFLHV WKH\ JRW KDPPHUHG when Â things Â did Â not Â go Â well. The Â upshot Â of Â this Â whole Â episode Â is Â that Â the Â state Â is Â allowing Â Porter Â to Â ab-Â sorb Â the Â cost Â overruns Â in Â its Â prior Â and Â current Â budgets Â and Â therefore Â continue Â to Â implement Â the Â system. Â (What Â other Â realistic Â outcome Â could Â there Â be?) Â Por-Â WHUEHDUVWKHIXOOFRVWRIWKHSURMHFWDVLWDOZD\VZRXOGKDYH1RRQHEHQHÂżW-Â ted Â from Â the Â cost Â over-Ârun;Íž Â no Â one Â at Â Porter Â wanted Â to Â see Â it Â take Â longer, Â and Â no Â one Â was Â grossly Â mismanaging Â their Â duties. Â Indeed, Â cost Â overruns Â happen Â all Â the Â time Â with Â complex Â IT Â installations Â simply Â because Â there Â are Â many Â unknowns Â when Â installing Â the Â system. Why Â the Â charades? Â Because Â that Â is Â also Â part Â of Â the Â process. Angelo Â S. Â Lynn

Five Â reasons Â to Â raise Â children Â here Just Â when Â I Â get Â used Â to Â writing Â â€œ2012â€? Â on Â everything, Â the Â year Â goes Â and Â switches Â to Â 2013. Â Since Â 2013 Â will Â mark Â the Â second Â Â anniversary Â of Â our Â familyâ€™s Â move Â to Â Vermont, Â Iâ€™m Â going Â to Â ring Â in Â the Â New Â Year Â with Â some Â sweeping Â generalizations Â about Â why Â our Â family Â loves Â living Â here. Â 7KHIROORZLQJVWDWHPHQWVUHĂ€HFWRQO\P\H[SHULHQFHGXU-Â ing Â two Â years Â spent Â in Â my Â particular Â town. Â Here Â you Â go: Five Â Great Â Reasons Â to Â Raise Â Kids Â in Â Vermont Â 1. Â Itâ€™s Â too Â cold Â for Â evil. Â We Â have Â three Â little Â girls Â with Â very Â active Â imaginations, Â so Â thereâ€™s Â a Â lot Â of Â fear Â in Â our Â house. Â Theyâ€™re Â afraid Â of Â witches, Â wizards, Â monsters Â and Â (yes, Â really) Â blue-Âringed Â octopi. Â Never Â mind Â that Â witches, Â wizards Â and Â mon-Â VWHUVDUHÂżFWLWLRXVRUWKDWEOXHULQJHG octopi Â require Â an Â OCEAN Â to Â survive. Â No;Íž Â whenever Â one Â of Â our Â daughters Â gets Â worked Â up Â over Â some Â evil Â entity, Â By Â Faith all Â my Â husband Â and Â I Â have Â to Â say Â is, Â Gong â€œThere Â arenâ€™t Â any Â (witches/wizards/ monsters/octopi) Â in Â Vermont.â€? Â To Â which Â our Â middle Â child Â always Â adds Â this Â beautiful Â bit Â of Â logic: Â â€œNope, Â not Â in Â Vermont. Â Too Â COLD!â€? 2. Â Lack Â of Â alpha-Âparenting Â outlets. Â In Â the Â cities Â we Â pre-Â viously Â inhabited Â (Manhattan Â and Â the Â San Â Francisco Â Bay Â Area), Â there Â were Â as Â many Â options Â for Â childrenâ€™s Â activities Â as Â stars Â in Â the Â sky. Â From Â the Â moment Â your Â child Â turned Â WKUHHLI\RXZDQWHGLW\RXFRXOGÂżQGLWPXVLFOHVVRQV voice Â lessons, Â dance Â lessons, Â sports, Â martial Â arts, Â cooking Â classes Â â€” Â you Â name Â it. Â Where Â we Â now Â live, Â it Â would Â take Â real Â effort Â to Â become Â a Â hyper-Âcompetitive Â parent Â with Â over-Â scheduled Â children. Â (As Â long Â as Â you Â avoid Â hockey.) Â Here, Â as Â far Â as Â Iâ€™m Â aware, Â your Â child Â has Â ONE Â choice Â before Â WXUQLQJÂżYHJ\PQDVWLFV$IWHUÂżYHWKHFKRLFHVEURDGHQ somewhat Â to Â include Â swimming, Â dance Â and Â softball, Â plus Â skiing Â and Â skating Â in Â the Â winter. Â Itâ€™s Â a Â lazy Â parentâ€™s Â dream. Â
(As Â long Â as Â you Â avoid Â hockey.) 3. Â Simple Â pleasures. Â In Â addition Â to Â extracurricular Â activ-Â ities, Â more Â populous Â areas Â offer Â a Â variety Â of Â entertainment Â options Â for Â children. Â Deluxe Â playgrounds! Â Museums Â by Â the Â score! Â Stimulating Â indoor Â play Â spaces! Â Enormous Â toy Â stores! Â My Â daughters, Â on Â the Â other Â hand, Â get Â hysterically Â excited Â over Â the Â prospect Â of Â grocery Â shopping Â at Â Han-Â nafordâ€™s, Â where Â they Â might Â ride Â in Â one Â of Â the Â car Â shopping Â carts Â and Â get Â a Â free Â sugar Â cookie Â at Â the Â bakery. Â With Â lim-Â ited Â kid-Âcentric Â entertainment Â nearby, Â theyâ€™ve Â learned Â to Â make Â their Â own Â fun, Â and Â to Â appreciate Â the Â times Â when Â we Â do Â travel Â greater Â distances Â for Â splash-Â LHU RSWLRQV 0\ ÂżYH\HDUROG KDV DO-Â ready Â planned Â the Â ULTIMATE Â day Â for Â her Â 16th Â birthday: Â sheâ€™s Â going Â to Â take Â her Â sister Â and Â best Â friend Â to Â jump Â in Â the Â bouncy Â house Â at Â Whirlieâ€™s Â World, Â and Â then Â drive Â up Â to Â Burlington Â for Â lunch Â at Â the Â (very Â modest, Â by Â most Â city Â stan-Â dards) Â Burlington Â Town Â Center Â Mall. Â Apparently, Â thatâ€™s Â as Â good Â as Â it Â gets! 4. Â It Â toughens Â them Â up. Â One Â thing Â thatâ€™s Â NOT Â limited Â in Â Vermont: Â the Â Great Â Outdoors. Â Vermont Â kids Â tend Â to Â spend Â a Â lot Â of Â time Â outdoors, Â in Â all Â sorts Â of Â weather. Â This Â exposure Â to Â nature, Â combined Â with Â the Â overall Â safety Â of Â the Â area Â that Â allows Â for Â less Â supervised Â wandering, Â creates Â some Â tough Â kids. Â My Â three Â daughters Â are Â already Â showing Â a Â strong Â inclination Â to Â walk Â out Â in Â a Â snowstorm Â wearing Â Ă€LSĂ€RSV7KH\FOLPEURFNVVZLPLQODNHVDQGULYHUVJHW FRPSOHWHO\ÂżOWK\DQGFDQSOD\MXVWDERXWDQ\WKLQJZLWK D VWLFN 0\ RQH\HDUROGÂśV ÂżUVW ZRUGV ZHUH ÂłURFNÂ´ DQG â€œacorn,â€?

6WDWHPXVWÂżQGZD\WRIXQGLWVURDGV Funding Â the Â stateâ€™s Â transportation Â program Â is Â a Â major Â issue Â on Â the Â agenda Â of Â this Â yearâ€™s Â legislative Â session. Â Since Â 2000, Â miles Â traveled Â on Â Vermontâ€™s Â roads Â have Â increased Â by Â 13 Â percent, Â but Â annual Â gasoline Â and Â die-Â sel Â fuel Â tax Â revenues Â are Â the Â same Â today Â as Â they Â were Â 12 Â years Â ago. Â As Â Vermonters Â have Â replaced Â gas-Âguzzlers Â ZLWK PRUH IXHO HIÂżFLHQW YHKLFOHV WKH QHZ YHKLFOHV XVH less Â fuel Â per Â mile. Â Thus, Â gas Â and Â diesel Â taxes, Â which Â are Â the Â principal Â sources Â of Â revenue Â for Â the Â stateâ€™s Â Transpor-Â tation Â Fund, Â are Â not Â keeping Â up Â with Â the Â wear Â and Â tear Â on Â the Â roads. Over Â the Â past Â 10 Â years, Â the Â backlog Â of Â road Â and Â bridge Â repair Â projects Â in Â Vermont Â has Â grown. Â Vermontâ€™s Â roads, Â once Â among Â the Â best Â in Â New Â England, Â are Â now Â rated Â as Â below-Âstandard Â by Â many Â national Â transportation Â orga-Â nizations. Â Infusions Â of Â federal Â funds Â from Â the Â 2009-Â10 Â stimulus Â program, Â and Â emergency Â funds Â from Â Washing-Â By Â Eric Â L. Â Davis ton Â following Â Tropical Â Storm Â Irene, Â have Â helped Â the Â state Â repair Â more Â miles Â of Â road, Â and Â more Â bridges, Â in Â the Â past Â three Â years Â than Â in Â much Â of Â the Â previous Â decade. However, Â these Â federal Â funds Â are Â drying Â up. Â Also, Â the Â dysfunctional Â Congress Â has Â not Â been Â able Â to Â pass Â a Â multi-Â year Â highway Â and Â transportation Â bill Â that Â would Â allow Â the Â states Â to Â anticipate Â a Â predictable Â level Â of Â federal Â spending Â on Â roads, Â rail, Â and Â public Â transport. Â Thus, Â Vermont Â is Â left Â to Â rely Â primarily Â on Â declining Â gas Â tax Â revenues Â to Â fund Â its Â transportation Â program. Vermont Â is Â not Â alone Â in Â this Â situation. Â State Â govern-Â ments Â all Â over Â the Â country Â are Â considering Â how Â best Â to Â fund Â their Â transportation Â programs. Â Four Â alternatives Â are Â
being Â considered Â nationally, Â some Â of Â which Â would Â be Â ap-Â plicable Â to Â Vermont, Â others Â not. Â 7KHÂżUVWLQDSSOLFDEOHRSWLRQZRXOGEHWROOVZKLFKFDQ work Â in Â states Â such Â as Â Massachusetts Â where Â much Â travel Â is Â on Â interstate Â highways Â with Â a Â limited Â number Â of Â inter-Â changes, Â but Â not Â in Â a Â rural Â state Â like Â Vermont. Â Another Â unrealistic Â option Â would Â be Â a Â miles Â traveled Â tax, Â which Â requires Â installation Â of Â a Â GPS Â device Â in Â every Â vehicle Â to Â keep Â track Â of Â how Â many Â miles Â it Â has Â been Â driven. Â This Â option Â is Â expensive Â to Â implement Â and Â raises Â serious Â pri-Â vacy Â concerns. 7KH ÂżUVW UHDOLVWLF RSWLRQ IRU 9HU-Â mont Â is Â raising Â existing Â gasoline Â and Â diesel Â fuel Â taxes. Â While Â the Â easiest Â option, Â this Â approach Â has Â unintended Â consequences. Â By Â raising Â the Â price Â of Â gasoline, Â it Â will Â encourage Â more Â mo-Â WRULVWVWRSXUFKDVHQHZIXHOHIÂżFLHQW vehicles, Â thus Â exacerbating Â the Â prob-Â lem Â of Â declining Â gas Â tax Â revenues Â over Â time. Â Gasoline Â taxes Â are Â also Â re-Â gressive, Â since Â lower-Âincome Â house-Â holds Â spend Â a Â higher Â proportion Â of Â their Â incomes Â on Â gasoline Â than Â higher-Âincome Â house-Â holds. Â Additionally, Â convenience Â store Â owners Â in Â border Â towns Â will Â oppose Â higher Â gas Â taxes, Â since Â Vermontâ€™s Â gas Â tax Â is Â already Â higher Â than Â in Â both Â New Â Hampshire Â and Â Massachusetts. The Â second Â realistic Â alternative Â is Â raising Â additional Â transportation Â revenue Â from Â vehicle Â registration Â fees. Â Many Â states Â now Â charge Â fees Â that Â are Â calculated Â as Â a Â proportion Â of Â the Â vehicleâ€™s Â value, Â as Â opposed Â to Â Ver-Â PRQWÂśVĂ€DWFKDUJHRIIRUDRQH\HDUUHJLVWUDWLRQ)RU (See Â Davis, Â Page Â 5A)
According Â to Â FBI Â crime Â statistics, Â in Â 2011 Â (statistics Â for Â 2012 Â have Â not Â been Â released Â yet) Â Vermont Â KDGDÂżUHDUPPXUGHUUDWHRI DQGDÂżUHDUPUREEHU\UDWHRI incidents Â per Â 100,000 Â people. Â For Â comparison, Â New Â York Â state, Â which Â KDVKDGWKHÂżUHDUPUHJXODWLRQVWKDW Vermont Â is Â considering Â in Â place Â for Â VHYHUDO\HDUVKDGDÂżUHDUPPXUGHU rate Â of Â 4.12 Â per Â 100,000 Â people, Â or Â over Â FIVE Â times Â as Â high Â as Â Ver-Â PRQW7KHÂżUHDUPUREEHU\UDWHLQ New Â York Â was Â 23.28 Â per Â 100,000 Â people Â â€” Â also Â over Â FIVE Â times Â as Â high Â as Â Vermont. Â Again, Â these Â statistics Â are Â per Â 100,000 Â people Â â€” Â total Â population Â of Â the Â state Â has Â no Â effect Â on Â these Â numbers.

Â The Â num-Â bers Â donâ€™t Â lie Â â€” Â Vermont Â and Â New Â Hampshire Â must Â be Â doing Â some-Â thing Â right Â compared Â to Â New Â York.

Childcare Â worker Â against Â union Iâ€™m Â a Â small Â business Â owner. Â I Â provide Â childcare Â out Â of Â my Â home Â and Â help Â to Â educate Â the Â youth Â of Â today Â while Â still Â keeping Â within Â the Â standards Â the Â state Â has Â set Â forth. Â Iâ€™m Â not Â a Â state Â employee Â and Â Iâ€™m Â not Â a Â union Â worker. Â Just Â like Â all Â small Â business Â owners Â I Â follow Â the Â rules Â and Â am Â happy Â to Â do Â so Â as Â long Â as Â the Â state Â allows Â me Â the Â ability Â to Â establish Â my Â own. Â I Â do Â not Â wish Â to Â be Â unionized Â and Â have Â yet Â to Â see Â WKHEHQHÂżWVWKDWWKH$)7$PHULFDQ Federation Â of Â Teachers) Â continues Â to Â tout, Â such Â as Â increases Â in Â pay, Â more Â and/or Â better Â professional Â develop-Â ment Â opportunities Â and Â a Â stronger Â voice. Â Instead Â I Â see Â exactly Â what Â I Â get Â right Â now Â minus Â my Â individual Â voice Â and Â with Â the Â added Â expense Â of Â agency Â fees. Â If Â a Â union Â is Â allowed Â and Â I Â elect Â not Â to Â be Â a Â member, Â I Â would Â still Â have Â to Â pay Â my Â â€œfair Â shareâ€? Â agency Â fees, Â an Â added Â expense Â which Â would Â reduce Â my Â bottom Â line Â as Â a Â self-Âemployed Â person. Â Being Â a Â member Â of Â the Â union Â will Â not Â EHQHÂżWWKHFKLOGUHQRUIDPLOLHV, VHUYHDQGFHUWDLQO\QRWEHQHÂżWP\ business. Â Why Â should Â I Â pay Â for Â something Â I Â do Â not Â want? Â Or, Â why Â would Â I Â want Â to Â be Â part Â of Â some-Â thing Â that Â will Â not Â give Â me Â anything Â I Â do Â not Â already Â have? Â Something Â that Â I Â didnâ€™t Â even Â ask Â for. As Â a Â self-Âemployed Â childcare Â provider, Â I Â set Â my Â own Â rates. Â The Â state Â does Â not Â set Â my Â rate Â and Â I Â do Â not Â have Â a Â different Â rate Â for Â children Â whose Â families Â receive Â subsidy Â assistance. Â Increasing Â subsidy Â rates Â will Â not Â increase Â my Â pay. Â It Â ZRXOGRQO\EHQHÂżWWKHIDPLOLHVWKDW receive Â that Â assistance. Â Further-Â more, Â it Â is Â likely Â that Â subsidy Â rates Â will Â increase Â this Â term Â without Â the Â assistance Â from Â a Â union. As Â a Â state-Âregistered Â child Â care Â provider Â I Â am Â required Â to Â take Â professional Â development Â courses Â annually. Â I Â have Â never Â had Â to Â pay Â for Â any Â course Â and Â have Â found Â the Â courses Â I Â have Â taken Â to Â be Â very Â helpful Â and Â insightful. Â There Â is Â an Â abundance Â of Â opportunities Â avail-Â able Â to Â me Â for Â professional Â develop-Â ment. Â Free Â courses Â at Â Mary Â Johnson Â Childrenâ€™s Â Center, Â a Â â€œStart Â With Â the Â Artsâ€?

Â So, Â let Â me Â start Â with Â a Â fact: Â according Â to Â the Â CQ Â Pressâ€™s Â 2010 Â state Â crime Â rankings, Â Vermont Â is Â the Â 2nd Â safest Â state Â in Â the Â nation Â (after Â New Â Hampshire). Â I Â know Â that Â statistics Â only Â take Â you Â so Â far, Â that Â itâ€™s Â important Â to Â be Â vigilant, Â and Â that Â bad Â things Â can Â (and Â do) Â happen Â anywhere.

weâ€™re Â at Â an Â event, Â in Â the Â library, Â walk-Â ing Â along Â Main Â Street, Â or Â eating Â in Â a Â restaurant, Â weâ€™re Â guaranteed Â to Â see Â at Â least Â one Â person Â we Â know Â â€” Â all Â this Â after Â less Â than Â two Â years Â in Â our Â town. Â So, Â when Â my Â two Â oldest Â daughters Â dash Â ahead Â of Â me Â into Â the Â library, Â I Â donâ€™t Â feel Â a Â panicked Â urge Â to Â bark, Â â€œSTOP! Â Wait Â for Â me! Â Hold Â my Â hand!â€? Â the Â way Â I Â would Â in Â a Â larger Â town. Â As Â soon Â as Â my Â girls Â enter Â that Â library, Â 85 Â percent Â of Â the Â patrons, Â plus Â the Â librar-Â ians, Â know Â them Â by Â name. Â This Â may Â not Â be Â preparing Â my Â daughters Â well Â for Â life Â outside Â of Â small-Âtown Â Vermont. Â In Â fact, Â NOTH-Â ING Â on Â this Â list Â is Â likely Â to Â prepare Â my Â daughters Â for Â life Â outside Â small-Â town Â Vermont. Â But Â maybe Â thatâ€™s Â the Â greatest Â reason Â of Â all Â to Â raise Â kids Â in Â
Vermont: Â When Â (or Â if) Â my Â kids Â leave Â Vermont, Â theyâ€™ll Â have Â plenty Â of Â time Â to Â feel Â scared, Â to Â get Â overscheduled, Â and Â to Â shop Â in Â major Â department Â stores.

this Â year. Â Teams Â located Â only Â 185 Â American Â robins. Â This Â is Â roughly Â 10 Â percent Â of Â last Â yearâ€™s Â 1,783 Â robins. Â Those Â robins Â that Â spend Â the Â winter Â here Â need Â to Â switch Â their Â food Â from Â worms Â and Â insects Â to Â fruit. Â Many Â of Â the Â relatively Â few Â robins Â found Â were Â feeding Â on Â sumac Â berries Â rather Â than Â juniper Â berries. Â Last Â yearâ€™s Â juniper Â berries Â kept Â seven Â yellow-Ârumped Â warblers Â and Â a Â hermit Â thrush Â in Â the Â count Â circle Â but Â neither Â species Â was Â found Â this Â year. Cedar Â waxwings Â (also Â a Â fruit Â eat-Â er) Â continued Â a Â six-Âyear Â decline Â on Â the Â count. Â It Â seems Â unlikely Â that Â this Â is Â related Â simply Â to Â the Â winter Â fruit Â crops.

Middlebury Â yoga Â instructor Â shares Â journey Â that Â led Â her Â to Â teach By Â XIAN Â CHIANG-ÂWAREN MIDDLEBURY Â â€” Â Joanna Â Colwell Â began Â practicing Â yoga Â in Â her Â early Â 20s, Â after Â meeting Â her Â future Â instructor Â by Â random Â chance: Â The Â two Â strangers Â met Â during Â an Â earthquake Â in Â Santa Â Cruz, Â Calif. Â Chance Â may Â have Â spurred Â her Â initial Â exposure Â to Â yoga, Â but Â it Â was Â also Â fate. Â â€œI Â was Â instantly Â hooked,â€? Â Colwell Â said. &ROZHOOZDVRQHRIWKHÂżUVW\RJD teachers Â in Â Addison Â County Â to Â teach Â in Â the Â traditional Â Iyengar Â style, Â which Â focuses Â on Â precise Â body Â alignment Â and Â uses Â props Â to Â support Â postures, Â and Â has Â been Â teaching Â yoga Â in Â Middlebury Â since Â 2000. Â The Â California Â native Â has Â been Â teach-Â ing Â and Â practicing Â for Â more Â than Â two Â decades Â and Â is Â the Â founder Â of Â the Â Otter Â Creek Â Yoga Â studio Â in Â the Â Marble Â Works Â Business Â District Â in Â Middlebury. Â Colwell Â believes Â in Â teach-Â ing Â yoga Â as Â an Â inclusive Â practice Â that Â can Â assist Â anyone Â â€” Â young Â or Â old, Â male Â or Â IHPDOH Ă€H[LEOH RU LQĂ€H[LEOH Â˛ LQ personal Â growth, Â physi-Â FDO ÂżWQHVV DQG H[SDQG-Â ing Â overall Â awareness Â into Â oneâ€™s Â body Â and Â mind. Â She Â considers Â it Â her Â mission Â to Â make Â yoga Â accessible Â to Â everyone. â€œYouâ€™ll Â hear Â people Â say, Â â€˜Oh, Â I Â canâ€™t Â do Â yoga, Â Iâ€™m Â stiff,â€™â€? Â Colwell Â said. Â â€œThereâ€™s Â a Â quote Â I Â love Â about Â this: Â â€˜Not Â doing Â yoga Â because Â \RXÂśUHQRWĂ€H[LEOHLVOLNHQRWWDNLQJ a Â bath Â because Â youâ€™re Â dirty.â€™â€? )RU WKH ÂżUVW FROXPQ WKDW IRFXVHV on Â local Â personalities, Â Colwell Â shares Â stories Â of Â her Â personal Â discovery Â of Â yoga, Â and Â the Â many Â EHQHÂżWV VKH VHHV WKH SUDFWLFH EULQJ to Â the Â students.
from Â tipping Â over. Â And Â we Â were Â all Â kind Â of Â bonded Â after. Â You Â know, Â you Â go Â through Â an Â earthquake Â with Â somebody! Â â€Ś Â We Â were Â talking Â with Â the Â woman Â who Â worked Â there, Â and Â we Â asked Â if Â she Â worked Â there Â every Â day, Â and Â she Â said, Â â€œNo, Â Iâ€™m Â only Â here Â one Â day Â a Â week, Â I Â teach Â yoga.â€? Â And Â I Â said, Â â€œIâ€™m Â looking Â for Â a Â yoga Â teacher!â€? So Â I Â went Â to Â her Â class, Â and Â it Â was Â Iyengar Â yoga. Â I Â remember Â LW ZDV YHU\ EHZLOGHULQJ WKH ÂżUVW time Â I Â went, Â because Â she, Â in Â a Â very Â traditional Â manner, Â just Â said Â the Â postures Â in Â Sanskrit! Â It Â sounded Â like Â complete Â gibberish Â to Â me Â and Â I Â had Â no Â idea Â what Â she Â was Â saying. Â I Â just Â would Â look Â around Â and Â try Â to Â copy Â what Â other Â people Â were Â doing. Â And Â I Â was Â hooked. Â I Â started Â going Â twice Â a Â week, Â and Â after Â awhile Â started Â to Â learn Â the Â names Â of Â the Â poses Â in Â Sanskrit, Â and Â I Â started Â to Â learn Â a Â little Â more Â about Â what Â I Â was Â doingâ€Ś Â (and) Â learning Â some Â yoga Â philoso-Â phy Â was Â really Â amazing Â for Â me. Â Your Â 20s Â are Â a Â time Â in Â your Â life Â when Â youâ€™re Â really Â search-Â ing. Â â€œWho Â am Â I? Â Whatâ€™s Â important Â to Â me?â€? Â So Â it Â was Â this Â important, Â valuable Â framework Â as Â I Â went Â on Â and Â deepened Â my Â explora-Â tion Â of Â yoga.
Q: Â A: Â
Letâ€™s Â start Â at Â the Â beginning. Â :KDW ZDV \RXU ÂżUVW H[SHUL-Â ence Â with Â yoga? I Â heard Â about Â it Â as Â a Â teenager. Â I Â was Â never Â athletic, Â never Â played Â sports, Â kind Â of Â clumsy Â and Â uncoordinated Â â€” Â not Â a Â very Â physi-Â cal Â person! Â I Â was Â very Â intrigued Â by Â something Â that Â was Â physical, Â but Â was Â not Â a Â competition Â at Â all. Â I Â didnâ€™t Â know Â anything Â about Â yoga, Â but Â I Â knew Â it Â wasnâ€™t Â a Â sport, Â it Â wasnâ€™t Â something Â where Â you Â were Â compet-Â ing Â with Â other Â people, Â and Â it Â had Â to Â do Â with Â your Â body Â and Â your Â mind. Â I Â knew Â it Â came Â from Â India. Â I Â had Â this Â friend Â who Â was Â older Â than Â me, Â and Â who Â was Â just Â wonder-Â ful. Â She Â taught Â me Â all Â of Â these Â things, Â like Â how Â to Â bake Â bread Â and Â lot Â of Â natural Â cooking Â things. Â She Â was Â a Â wonderful Â â€œearth Â motherâ€? Â woman Â who Â was Â like Â a Â mentor Â to Â me. Â I Â think Â we Â were Â on Â a Â hiking Â trip, Â and Â then Â visiting Â friends, Â up Â in Â Washington Â state. Â We Â were Â on Â our Â friendâ€™s Â deck, Â and Â I Â was Â saying Â how Â I Â was Â interested Â in Â yoga, Â and Â wanted Â to Â learn Â more Â about Â what Â it Â was. Â And Â she Â said, Â â€œOh, Â Iâ€™ll Â teach Â you Â how Â to Â do Â a Â sun Â salutation!â€? And Â I Â remember Â it Â was Â this Â beau-Â tiful Â day. Â I Â think Â I Â was Â like Â 20 Â years Â old, Â learning Â how Â to Â do Â a Â sun Â saluta-Â tion Â and Â I Â was Â like Â â€” Â â€œOh, Â my Â God. Â ,ORYHWKLVÂ´,WZDVWKHÂżUVWPRPHQW I Â experienced Â anything Â to Â do Â with Â yoga, Â and Â I Â loved Â it.
Q: Â A: Â
When Â did Â you Â begin Â practicing? I Â think Â it Â was Â a Â year Â later. Â â€Ś Â I Â was Â living Â in Â Santa Â Cruz, Â Calif. Â My Â friend Â and Â I Â were Â in Â this Â place Â where Â you Â could Â go Â and Â have Â a Â hot Â tub Â and Â a Â sauna, Â and Â we Â were Â waiting Â our Â turn. Â And Â there Â was Â an Â earthquake! Â There Â are Â earthquakes Â there Â all Â the Â time. Â We Â were Â like, Â grabbing Â (ahold Â of Â things). Â The Â woman Â who Â worked Â there Â was Â grab-Â bing Â the Â big Â water Â cooler Â to Â keep Â it Â
Q: Â A: Â
When Â did Â you Â decide Â to Â become Â a Â teacher? ,W ZDV DERXW ÂżYH \HDUV ODWHU that Â I Â had Â the Â opportunity Â to Â start Â learning Â about Â teaching. Â I Â remember Â actually Â thinking Â after Â a Â year Â or Â so Â of Â working Â with Â this Â wonderful Â teacher Â in Â Santa Â Cruz, Â â€œI Â wonder Â if Â I Â could Â be Â a Â teacher.â€? Â She Â was Â so Â smart Â and Â funny, Â she Â always Â made Â us Â laugh. Â She Â worked Â us Â really Â hard, Â but Â in Â an Â encouraging Â way. Â â€Ś Â So Â I Â think Â that Â planted Â the Â seed, Â because Â I Â just Â admired Â her Â so Â much. Â And Â I Â thought, Â what Â a Â great Â job! Â You Â get Â to Â work Â with Â people. Â I Â think Â thatâ€™s Â what Â I Â love Â about Â it. Â You Â get Â to Â work Â with Â people Â in Â this Â very Â elemental Â way. Â We Â all Â have Â a Â body. Â We Â all Â have Â some Â kind Â of Â GLIÂżFXOW\ LQ RXU ERG\ DQG LQ RXU mind. Â Itâ€™s Â so Â universal. Â I Â know Â what Â itâ€™s Â like Â to Â have Â an Â injury, Â I Â know Â what Â itâ€™s Â like Â to Â have Â a Â sore Â back, Â to Â be Â anxious, Â or Â to Â be Â sad, Â or Â to Â be Â angry Â or Â to Â be Â grieving, Â all Â of Â these Â things Â that Â are Â just Â part Â of Â the Â human Â condition. Â I Â feel Â like Â yoga Â is Â â€” Â not Â a Â remedy, Â but Â this Â way Â that Â we Â work Â with Â whatâ€™s Â there. Â
â€œâ€Śafter practicing for 25 years I feel as though Iâ€™m just at the start of my journey. There is such a richness to it.â€? â€” Joanna Colwell
As Â a Â teacher, Â do Â you Â often Â VHHVWXGHQWVÂżQGWKDW\RJDLV different Â from Â their Â initial Â concep-Â tion Â of Â it? You Â donâ€™t Â really Â know Â what Â itâ€™s Â like Â until Â you Â try Â it! Â There Â is Â a Â lot Â of Â misconception Â out Â there. Â There Â are Â a Â lot Â of Â images Â out Â there Â that Â tend Â to Â be Â of Â thin, Â pretty Â young Â women Â in Â kind Â of Â pretzel-Ây Â shapes.

As Â much Â as Â possible, Â I Â try Â to Â be Â an Â ambassador Â for Â people Â to Â under-Â stand Â that Â yoga Â is Â really Â for Â all Â kinds Â of Â bodies, Â even Â if Â youâ€™re Â heavy, Â or Â if Â youâ€™re Â stiff, Â or Â if Â youâ€™ve Â been Â out Â of Â commission Â for Â a Â while Â because Â you Â had Â surgery. Â I Â think Â there Â is Â a Â misconception Â that Â yoga Â is Â purely Â physicalâ€Ś Â We Â do Â want Â to Â under-Â stand Â the Â body, Â we Â want Â to Â under-Â stand Â where Â there Â is Â resistance Â in Â the Â body, Â we Â want Â to Â create Â more Â space Â in Â the Â body, Â but Â ultimately Â even Â if Â we Â were Â paralyzed Â and Â couldnâ€™t Â get Â out Â of Â bed, Â we Â could Â still Â be Â practic-Â ing Â yoga. Â As Â long Â as Â we Â are Â drawing Â breath, Â then Â we Â have Â this Â opportu-Â nity Â to Â work Â with Â our Â body-Âmind.
Q: Â A: Â
How Â does Â a Â person Â from Â 1RUWKHUQ &DOLIRUQLD ÂżQG KHU way Â to Â Vermont? Marriage! Â My Â now-Âhusband Â was Â in Â San Â Francisco Â going Â to Â art Â school, Â and Â we Â met, Â actu-Â ally, Â on Â a Â city Â bus. Â â€Ś Â I Â was Â living Â north Â of Â the Â city Â at Â the Â time, Â but Â I Â was Â in Â the Â city Â because Â thatâ€™s Â where Â my Â parents Â lived;Íž Â I Â was Â just Â visit-Â ing Â them. Â When Â I Â was Â visiting Â my Â parents, Â I Â would Â try Â to Â connect Â with Â him. Â I Â sort Â of Â moved Â closer Â and Â closer Â until Â we Â were Â living Â in Â the Â same Â town! He Â had Â always Â intended Â to Â move Â back Â to Â Vermont Â at Â some Â point, Â so Â when Â we Â got Â married Â we Â came Â back. Â He Â had Â been Â in Â this Â community Â for Â quite Â a Â long Â time Â before Â he Â went Â out Â there Â (to Â California). Â For Â me Â it Â was Â all Â new, Â but Â it Â was Â really Â nice Â because Â he Â knew Â so Â many Â people Â and Â I Â felt Â so Â welcomed. Â And Â for Â the Â yoga, Â the Â response Â has Â been Â really Â amazing. Â I Â taught Â in Â the Â basement Â of Â St. Â Stephenâ€™s Â Church Â for Â two Â years. Â Then Â I Â moved Â above Â ground Â into Â the Â Unitarian Â Church Â where Â it Â used Â to Â be Â over Â in Â Cross Â Street Â and Â I Â was Â there Â for Â two Â years, Â and Â then Â the Â space Â in Â the Â Marble Â Works Â opened Â up. Â So Â it Â was Â really Â great Â because Â by Â the Â time Â the Â Marble Â Works Â space Â opened Â up Â I Â had Â been Â teaching Â yoga Â in Â Middlebury Â IRUÂżYH\HDUVDQGWKHUHZDVHQRXJK of Â a Â base Â of Â support.
Q: Â A: Â
Had Â you Â been Â a Â yoga Â teacher Â for Â some Â time Â at Â that Â point? Yes, Â I Â had Â been Â a Â full-Âtime Â yoga Â teacher Â in Â California Â for Â a Â few Â years Â before Â we Â moved Â here. Â
'LG\RXÂżQGWKDWWKHFRPPX-Â nity Â here Â was Â already Â excited Â about Â yoga, Â or Â was Â it Â a Â struggle Â to Â get Â people Â to Â the Â studio? I Â think Â it Â was Â really Â easy Â for Â me, Â because Â while Â there Â was Â yoga Â here, Â and Â there Â are Â other Â yoga Â teachers Â around, Â there Â wasnâ€™t Â anybody Â anywhere Â in Â this Â area Â that Â practices Â the Â kind Â of Â yoga Â that Â I Â teach. Â Itâ€™s Â not Â for Â everybody, Â but Â I Â think Â itâ€™s Â appealing Â enough Â that Â people Â really Â can Â respond Â to Â it. Â â€Ś Â Iyengar Â yoga Â is Â really Â a Â thinking Â personâ€™s Â yoga. Â Itâ€™s Â for Â people Â who Â are Â very Â intel-Â lectually Â curious, Â willing Â to Â explore Â their Â body Â and Â their Â mind Â in Â a Â new Â way. Â It Â is Â such Â a Â deep Â practice. Â Itâ€™s Â such Â a Â depth. Â â€Ś Â I Â feel Â like Â Iâ€™m Â just Â scratching Â the Â surface, Â after Â practic-Â ing Â for Â 25 Â years Â I Â feel Â as Â though Â Iâ€™m Â just Â at Â the Â start Â of Â my Â journey. Â There Â is Â such Â a Â richness Â to Â it. Â And Â I Â think Â people Â respond Â to Â the Â rigor Â of Â it. Â Itâ€™s Â not Â sloppy. Â There Â is Â a Â lot Â of Â attention Â to Â details. Â I Â love Â looking Â around Â and Â seeing Â the Â cashier Â from Â the Â co-Âop, Â veterinar-Â ians, Â weâ€™re Â all Â just Â in Â there Â together. Â Thereâ€™s Â a Â lot Â of Â specialization Â going Â on Â right Â now Â in Â the Â yoga Â worldâ€ŚYou Â see Â that Â more Â in Â the Â large Â cities. Â In Â a Â small Â town Â we Â canâ€™t Â really Â support Â that, Â we Â all Â just Â need Â to Â be Â in Â the Â same Â space Â practicing. Â I Â really Â like Â that Â weâ€™re Â all Â in Â there Â together Â in Â our Â different Â phases Â of Â life. Â I Â feel Â like Â the Â older Â students Â are Â modeling Â something Â very Â impor-Â tant Â to Â the Â younger Â students, Â which Â is: Â This Â is Â something, Â this Â is Â meant Â to Â be Â a Â lifetime Â practice. Â And Â itâ€™s Â
JOANNA Â COLWELL Â OF Â East Â Middlebury Â teaches Â Iyenga Â yoga Â at Â Otter Â Creek Â Yoga Â in Â Middlebury. Â Colwell Â started Â teaching Â in Â Vermont Â in Â 2000 Â and Â opened Â her Â Marble Â Works Â studio Â in Â 2011. Independent Â photo/Trent Â Campbell
really Â important Â that Â you Â practice Â in Â a Â way Â that Â is Â sustainable. Â If Â youâ€™re Â constantly Â pushing Â yourself, Â and Â youâ€™re Â tearing Â muscles, Â youâ€™re Â going Â to Â burn Â out Â and Â youâ€™re Â not Â going Â to Â want Â to Â do Â it Â when Â youâ€™re Â 70.
Otter Â Creek Â Yoga Â has Â quite Â the Â devoted Â following. Â Can Â you Â talk Â about Â the Â community Â aspect Â of Â practicing Â yoga Â in Â a Â town Â like Â Middlebury? :KHQ , ÂżUVW VWDUWHG WHDFKLQJ â€Ś Â I Â was Â thinking Â of Â it Â more Â DV WKH EHQHÂżW IRU HDFK LQGLYLGXDO person, Â which Â of Â course Â is Â still Â there. Â â€Ś Â And, Â since Â I Â opened Â the Â studio Â especially, Â Iâ€™ve Â really Â gotten Â the Â sense Â that Â there Â is Â this Â collective Â thing Â that Â happens Â too, Â where Â weâ€™re Â
all Â in Â there Â practicing Â together. Â And Â you Â can Â do Â more Â things Â actually Â when Â youâ€™re Â in Â there Â with Â a Â group. Â There Â is Â an Â energy, Â for Â lack Â of Â a Â better Â word, Â (a Â sense) Â that Â we Â are Â all Â in Â there Â together, Â and Â I Â love Â that. Â When Â we Â moved Â into Â the Â new Â space Â in Â Marble Â Works, Â we Â had Â this Â area Â to Â have Â tea Â at Â the Â end Â of Â class Â and Â I Â loved Â that. Â Our Â old Â space Â in Â the Â Marble Â Works Â there Â was Â just Â a Â coat-Â room, Â no Â little Â foyer Â or Â anything. Â The Â tea Â has Â just Â turned Â out Â to Â be Â lovely, Â I Â love Â watching Â people Â after Â class Â have Â their Â tea Â and Â talk Â to Â each Â other. I Â sort Â of Â consider Â it Â my Â mission Â to Â say, Â this Â is Â the Â â€œpeopleâ€™s Â yogaâ€? Â â€” Â itâ€™s Â really Â for Â everyone. Â I Â love Â it Â when Â people Â have Â the Â courage Â (to Â begin). Â One Â of Â my Â favorite Â things Â about Â
running Â the Â studio Â is Â seeing Â those Â people Â who Â really Â do Â want Â to Â make Â some Â kind Â of Â a Â change. Â Maybe Â life Â has Â become Â somewhat Â unmanage-Â able Â or Â there Â is Â just Â the Â sense Â that Â there Â could Â be Â more Â freedom Â and Â space Â in Â the Â body-Âmind. Â Thatâ€™s Â what Â ZHÂśUHWKHUHIRUWRVHHWKDWSHRSOHÂżQG that Â freedom Â and Â space, Â and Â the Â cour-Â age Â to Â come Â try Â a Â class. In Â our Â resistance Â to Â change, Â some-Â times Â we Â also Â say, Â â€œOh Â I Â canâ€™t Â afford Â it.â€? Â We Â are Â totally Â committed Â to Â offering Â yoga Â to Â anyone Â who Â wants Â to Â come. Â We Â have Â a Â work Â exchange Â program Â in Â the Â studio, Â or Â we Â work Â out Â sliding Â scales Â and Â scholarship. Â I Â feel Â thatâ€™s Â just Â one Â way Â we Â can Â give Â some-Â thing Â back Â to Â this Â community Â thatâ€™s Â been Â so Â supportive Â of Â the Â studio.
