is   your   child.â&#x20AC;?   Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve   found   that   to   be  true;Íž  whenever  tragedy  befalls  a   child   these   days,   it   pains   me   more   deeply   than   before   I   had   children   of   my   own.   But   I   wonder   whether   that  saying  is  mostly  about  our  self-­ centeredness.  In  my  own  case,  it  of-­ ten   is;Íž   when   I   hear   about   unimagi-­ nable  things  happening  to  children,   I  imagine  those  things  happening  to   my   own   children   â&#x20AC;Ś   and   then   Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m   grateful  that  they  didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t.  And  while   I   truly   love   being   around   children   who  arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t  my  own  offspring,  if  Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m   honest  I  often  tend  to  size  up  other   kids   in   relation   to   my   own:   Whoa,   sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  writing  her  name  already!  Or,   Hmm,  heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  not  as  polite  as  MY  chil-­ dren. But   what   if,   instead   of   seeing   other  children  with  my  own  childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   face,   or   using   them   as   develop-­ mental   measuring   sticks,   I   actually   treated  them  like  my  own  children?   What   if,   when   I   came   into   contact   with  other  children  in  my  communi-­ ty,  I  noticed  their  strengths  and  told   them  how  special  they  were?  What   if  I  cheered  as  loudly  for  other  chil-­ dren  at  events  as  I  do  for  my  own?   What  if  I  were  as  available  to  help   other  children  as  I  am  for  my  own?   What  if  we  all  were? Olivia   Scott   is   someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   child;Íž   so  are  the  children  who  bullied  her.   And  somewhere  along  the  way,  they   all  got  the  mistaken  impression  that   itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   possible   for   certain   people   to   not  be  special,  to  not  matter  all  that   much.  But  everyone  is  special;Íž  and   everyone  is  fragile,  so  how  we  treat   others  matters  very,  very  much. I   donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t   have   any   real   answers   to   our  loss  of  Olivia  Scott.  But  I  sus-­ pect   that   if   weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re   looking   for   the   problem,  we  might  start  by  looking   at  how  we  treat  our  children  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  our   own,   and   those   in   our   community.   Are   we   modeling   compassion   and   kindness?   No   amount   of   Internet   controls   or   guidance   counselors   or   anti-­bullying   programs   are   enough   to  make  a  child  feel  like  they  matter   because   theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re   deeply   loved   and   unconditionally  supported.   Even  love  and  support  might  not   be  enough;Íž  from  what  I  hear,  Olivia   Scott   was   very   loved.   But   thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   another   saying   I   like:   â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   OK   to   make   mistakes,   as   long   as   theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re   new   ones.â&#x20AC;?   What   happened   to   Ol-­ ivia   Scott   has   gotten   our   commu-­ nity  talking;Íž  now,  letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  try  not  to  let   it  happen  again. Look  for  Faith  Gongâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  blog,  â&#x20AC;&#x153;Faith   in   Vermont,â&#x20AC;?   on   addisonindepen-­ dent.com  every  other  Tuesday.

(Continued  from  Page  4A) (and  our  wishes)  by  supporting  Gaz   MĂŠtro  and  Vermont  Gas,  who  want   to  put  a  pipeline  through  our  state,   to  supply  fracked  gas  to  a  New  York   company.  There  is  adamant  opposi-­ tion  to  this  from  the  people  whose   lives  would  be  affected  by  this   pipeline.  Yet  most  of  our  representa-­ tives  seem  to  not  want  to  represent   our  viewpoint. The  Shoreham  selectboard   members  in  particular  seem  to  be   refusing  to  represent  the  opinions  of   community  members  and  landown-­ ers  in  Shoreham.  Paul  Saenger,  a   Shoreham  selectman,  recently  said  in   an  Addison  Independent  article,  â&#x20AC;&#x153;The   selectboardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  focus  will  be  to  get  the  

best  possible  deal  for  the  town  (if   the  project  is  ultimately  permitted).â&#x20AC;?   He  also  stated  that  the  selectboard   will  not  get  involved  with  property   ownerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  arguments  with  Vermont   Gas  regarding  the  pipeline. His  priority  should  be  representing   the  wishes  of  Shoreham  landowners   and  residents.  The  best  deal  for  the   town  would  be  NO  PIPELINE.  We  do   not  want  this  pipeline.  When  we  vote   for  people  to  represent  us,  we  expect   them  to  do  so.  Isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t  that  their  job? Cornwall  also  has  expressed  their   opposition  to  the  pipeline,  and  their   town  government  is  doing  a  great  job   in  supporting  this.  They  have  fought   against  this  pipeline  (and  continue  to   ÂżJKWLW EHFDXVH&RUQZDOOÂśVFRPPX-­

nity  members  asked  them  to. I  hope  everyone  will  look  at  who   is  representing  them  on  all  levels,   and  decide  if  they  are  actually   representing  their  people,  or  if  they   have  their  own  agendas,  which  do   not  include  representing  our  opin-­ ions.  If  your  representatives  are  not   doing  their  jobs  by  representing  your   opinion,  please  remember  that  in  the   next  election. As  far  as  the  pipeline  goes,  I  hope   Vermonters  in  general  will  decide   that  our  Vermont  values  are  not  for   VDOH$QG,KRSHRXUHOHFWHGRI¿FLDOV either  represent  our  values,  or  get  out   of  the  way  for  someone  who  will. Danielle  Payton Shoreham

Seriously,  for  our  greater  prosper-­ ity  there  is  no  substitute  for  the  en-­ trepreneurial   spirit,   for   those   with   inspiration   who   are   willing   to   fol-­ low  through  with  the  perspiration  to   make  their  ideas  become  reality,  thus   creating   prosperity   for   many   more   than   themselves.   In   todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   jargon,   these  folks  are  the  job  creators.   But   as   greater   thinkers   in   history   have   noted,   a   central   problem   with   capitalism   is   that   capital   tends   to   accumulate   into   the   hands   of   fewer   and  fewer  over  time  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  immediately   after   the   recession,   the   richest   20   percent   in   the   United   States   owned  

93  percent  of  the  nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  wealth,  ac-­ cording  to  one  source. Those   with   that   wealth   are   us-­ ing  it  to  accumulate  more  by  doing   their   best,   as   they   have   for   more   than   a   century,   to   enter   politics   in   order  to  limit  government  power  to   regulate  their  businesses,  how  they   deal  with  their  workers,  make  their   products   safer,   and   treat   the   envi-­ ronment.   This   goal   is   really   what   all   Tea   Party   and   other   right-­wing   political   rhetoric   is   about,   and   what   citizens   should  keep  in  mind  when  listening   to  the  noise.

here  costumes,  I  will  dress  up  as  a   middle-­aged  woman  in  a  sweatshirt   DQGĂ&#x20AC;DQQHOORXQJHSDQWV0DUNDQG I   will   crash   on   the   couch,   watch   a   movie,  and  pig  out  on  the  Snickers   bars   we   bought   on   the   laughable   pretense  that  we  might  get  trick-­or-­

treaters  this  year. I   wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t   look   like   a   sexy   anything.   Who   cares?   At   least   thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   no   chance   Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll   be   mistaken   for   an   outhouse.   Call   me   a   party   pooper,  but  I  consider  that  a  happy   Halloween.

Clippings (Continued  from  Page  4A) ing  â&#x20AC;&#x201D;  the  economy.  Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  a  reason   WKHÂżQDQFLDOUHJXODWLRQODZKDVEHHQ called  â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Dodd-­Frankenstein.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Note  the  blame  shift  to  the  govern-­ ment  (the  mortgage  agencies  Fannie   Mae   and   Freddie   Mac   have   federal   ties),   and   the   complaint   about   even   modest  regulation. Now,   I   want   to   make   clear   I   am   completely  in  favor  of  capitalism.  In   most  of  the  world,  even  here,  I  am  a   moderate  who  believes  in  a  regulat-­ ed  free  market  with  an  adequate  so-­ cial  safety  net.  Those  beliefs  do  not   make  me  a  wild-­eyed  pinko  radical.

Raymond (Continued  from  Page  4A) dance   this   Saturday.   It   was   a   sweet   gesture,   but   he   obviously   doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t   know   us   very   well.   For   one   thing,   the   event   starts   at   8   p.m.,   a   time   at   which   I   am   typically   brushing   my   teeth   and   forcing   myself   to   stay   up   another  hour  and  a  half  so  as  not  to   appear  uncool.  (I  do  have  an  image   to   maintain.)   Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   worse,   the   dance   runs   until   midnight,   which,   according   to   people   who   have   actually   experienced   it,   is   the   hour   after  11  p.m.  Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll  take  their  word  on   that. And   last   but   not   least,   thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   a   costume  contest.  I  just  canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t.

Virginia Larrabee, 89, Middlebury SHOREHAM   â&#x20AC;&#x201D;   Dr.   Virginia   S.   Larrabee  died  peacefully  Oct.  20,  2013. She  was  born  Nov.  21,  1923,  to  Clara   (Anderson)  and  Edwin  Homer  Stewart.   Her  childhood  was  spent  in  Minnesota,   2KLR DQG 1HZ -HUVH\ 7KH IDPLO\ moved   to   Vermont   in   1944.   After   graduating   from   Wellesley   College   in   1945,  she  married  Wesley  C.  Larrabee   RI 6KRUHKDP RQ 0D\   7KH\ had  four  daughters  and  operated  a  dairy   farm   and   apple   orchard,   which   was   known  as  Larrabeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  Point  Orchard. Dr.   Larrabee   was   an   educator,   who   started   teaching   elementary   school   in   1955   in   Forest   Dale.   She   went   on   to   teach   in   Shoreham,   then   became   an   Elementary   Reading   Supervisor   in   Rutland.  She  earned  a  masterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  degree   at   UVM   in   1961   and   her   EdD   from   Boston   University   in   1969.   She   did   postdoctoral   work   at   Lesley   College   and   Harvard   University.   She   was   a   professor   at   Castleton   State   College   from  1966  until  her  retirement  in  1992.   During  her  years  at  CSC,  her  primary   focus  was  the  teaching  of  reading.

Learn to be on time; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a gift to yourself and your community An   old   friend   of   mine   shared   some  thoughts  about  punctuality.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;Early  is  on  time,  on  time  is  late,   and   late   is   unacceptable!â&#x20AC;?   This   was  my  friendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  philosophy  about   getting  her  daughter  to  her  youth   symphony  rehearsals  on  time.  Or   rather,  early.  Because  if  you  want   to   truly   be   on   time,   you   must   arrive  early.   In   our   yoga   tradition,   each   class   begins   with   the   chanting   of   the   sound   om,   followed   by   the   Invocation   to   Sage   Patanjali,   who  was  the  compiler  of  the  Yoga   Sutras,   the   essential   teachings   of   yoga   philosophy.   It   is   powerful   to   experience   the   way   chanting   draws   us   together   as   a   group   of   practitioners.   Beginning   students   may   not   understand   why   we   start   each   class   this   way,   but   they   are   easily  able  to  experience  the  calm   and  focus  that  the  sound  evokes. Unfortunately,   students   arriv-­ ing   late   to   class   miss   this   impor-­ tant  start  to  the  practice.  They  are   greeted  by  a  sign  that  says,  â&#x20AC;&#x153;Stop!   Do   you   hear   chanting?   If   so,

efore I developed the life skill of arriving on time, I would always push everything to the last possible moment. If I knew I could bike to the yoga studio in 15 minutes, and the class started at 6, I would leave my house at 5:45.

please   wait     until   chanting   ends,   and  then  enter  the  room  quietly.â&#x20AC;? In   my   early   20s,   when   I   first   discovered   yoga,   I   often   had   a   very   difficult   time   getting   myself   to   class,   or   actually   anywhere,   on   time.   It   was   a   life   skill   I   had   not   yet   developed.   I   hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t   yet   learned  that  arriving  on  time  for  a   6   p.m.   yoga   class   means   entering   the   yoga   studio   several   minutes   before   six   oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;clock.   Because   we   need  time  to  take  off  our  shoes,  set   up  our  mat  in  the  yoga  room,  and   maybe  some  extra  time  for  chang-­ ing  clothes  or  using  the  bathroom. Before   I   developed   the   life   skill  of  arriving  on  time,  I  would   always   push   everything   to   the   last  possible  moment.  If  I  knew  I   could   bike   to   the   yoga   studio   in   15   minutes,   and   the   class   started   at   6,   I   would   leave   my   house   at   5:45.   So   I   would   be   the   breath-­ less,   flustered   person   rushing   into   the   studio   and   looking   for   a   place   to   put   my   mat   right   when   the   teacher   was   getting   ready   to   begin  the  lesson.

Like   a   good   story,   yoga   class   has  a  beginning,  a  middle  and  an   end.  It  is  best  not  to  miss  any  of   these  parts.

William Graham

My young son â&#x20AC;&#x201D; bronzed and high-spirited â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Plunged into the cold fathoms of the Aquamarine sea that gently painted The black lava stones on the shore. In the depths, the sunlight entangled him As he searched for where nature ;XZW]\MLQ\[IJ]VLIVKM<PMZMÃ&#x2020;WI\QVO Like a joyous expectation, he touched A living rainbow and merged with the sea. He rose to the surface and rubbed the wonder From his wide, bright eyes.

Vergennes (Continued  from  Page  1A) to   sell   naming   rights   to   the   bricks   to  support  the  project,  a  fundraising   tactic   that   worked   well   during   the   renovation   of   Middleburyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   Town   Hall  Theater. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That  money  will  at  least  pay  for   the  materials,â&#x20AC;?  she  said. Aldermen   all   said   they   approved   of  the  concept,  but  said  they  would   like   to   work   out   something   to   ac-­ count  for  the  two  lost  parking  plac-­ es.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;Put   me   down   for   a   brick,â&#x20AC;?   said   Alderman   Joe   Klopfenstein,   before   adding,   â&#x20AC;&#x153;I   worry   about   the   parking.   The   fewer   people   that   cross   Main   Street,  the  better.â&#x20AC;? Klopfenstein  suggested  a  pedestri-­ an-­activated   light   that   would   allow   them  to  cross  safely  to  city  hall  from   parking   spots   on   the   other   side   of   Main  Street.   Alderman   Randy   Ouellette   said,   â&#x20AC;&#x153;Having   the   marquee   further   out   would   be   nice,â&#x20AC;?   and   he   suggested   15-­minute  parking  limits  for  nearby   spots   that   would   tend   to   keep   them   available  for  city  hall  visitors. Alderman   Lowell   Bertrand   also   said  he  liked  the  project,  and  he  not-­ ed   that   because   now   police   cruisers   typically   park   in   those   spaces   they   are   rarely   available   to   the   public;Íž   therefore,   he   said,   their   loss   would   not  be  that  great. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   not   used   much   for   parking   anyway,â&#x20AC;?  Bertrand  said. Smart  said  FVOH  and  project  de-­ signer  Norm  LeBoeuf  hoped  to  off-­

set  the  loss  of  the  parking  places  by   adding  at  least  one  handicap  spot  in   the   alley   between   city   hall   and   the   church   next   door.   Smart   said   that   space   would   offer   easier   handicap   access   to   the   building   than   the   cur-­ rent  curbside  space. City   Manager   Mel   Hawley   said   such  an  arrangement  would  also  have   WR EH DSSURYHG E\ FKXUFK RIÂżFLDOV however,   and   also   said   the   project   design  would  have  to  be  careful  not   to  have  the  marquee  block  sight  lines   from  the  alleys  on  either  side  of  city   hall.   â&#x20AC;&#x153;Vision   is   a   concern,â&#x20AC;?   Hawley   said. Hawley   also   cautioned   the   curb   height   at   Main   Street   should   not   be   higher  than  the  standard  seven  inch-­ es  to  protect  against  falls.   Alderman   Renny   Perry   said   he   would  like  to  see  plans  include  a  spot   where  visitors  could  be  dropped  off   safely.  Perry  also  suggested  replant-­ ing  the  trees  now  in  front  of  city  hall   on  the  city  green  and  replacing  them   with   lower   shrubs.   But   he   spoke   in   favor  of  the  concept. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I  think  the  plaza  is  a  good  idea,â&#x20AC;?   Perry  said.     Perry   also   addressed   city   hallâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   interior,   saying   to   general   council   agreement   that   once   police   have   moved   to   their   new   station   what   is   QRZ &KLHI *HRUJH 0HUNHOÂśV RIÂżFH should   be   turned   over   to   the   opera   house   for   use   as   a   ticket   booth   and   RIÂżFHVSDFHDQGZKDWLVQRZWKHSD-­ trol  room  could  be  meeting  space  for  

the  city  council.  Aldermen  in  recent   years   have   met   in   the   cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   Green   6WUHHWÂżUHVWDWLRQ Mayor  Bill  Benton  said  he  sensed   aldermen   favored   the   concept,   but  

that  the  parking  questions  should  be   parking  options. addressed  and  cost  estimates  pinned   â&#x20AC;&#x153;I   think   there   is   a   consensus   to   down  in  the  weeks  to  come.  He  sug-­ take  it  to  the  next  step,â&#x20AC;?  Benton  said. gested   LeBoeuf   and   Smart   should   Smart  said  she  would  be  happy  to   PHHWZLWKFLW\RIÂżFLDOVDQGJRRYHU VLWGRZQZLWKRIÂżFLDOVDQGWLHXSWKH

aid  toward  a  total  $7.5  million  proj-­ ect  to  erect  a  new  municipal  building   at   77   Main   St.,   in   place   of   the   col-­ legeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  Osborne  House,  which  would   be  relocated  to  a  town-­owned  parcel   on  Cross  Street.  The  plan  also  calls   for  a  new  recreation  center  to  be  built   off  Mary  Hogan  Drive.  In  return  for   its   contribution,   the   college   would   receive  the  current  municipal  build-­ LQJJ\P VLWH DW WKH LQWHUVHFWLRQ RI South  Main  and  College  streets.  The   town   would   clear   that   site,   which   would  be  maintained  by  the  college  

as  a  park. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  a  deal  that  has  drawn  criticism   from   some   area   residents,   includ-­ ing   Bingham   and   some   signers   of   WKH2FWFRQĂ&#x20AC;LFWRILQWHUHVWFRP-­ plaint.   Opponents   have   been   urging   the  selectboard  to  decline  the  college   offer   and   to   rebuild   the   municipal   building  and  recreation  structures  at   their  current  location. The  selectboard  discussed  the  con-­ Ă&#x20AC;LFWRILQWHUHVW FRPSODLQW LQ RSHQ session  on  Tuesday,  and  also  held  a   vote  on  whether  Shashokâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  and  Nu-­

hat a glorious autumn we have had - lingering warmth, gorgeous colors and crystal clear blue skies. We might almost fool ourselves into feeling that winter is far away! Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to let the summer go and according to the Chinese medical model autumn can therefore be a time of grieving which can affect your respiratory system. This is a great time to strengthen your lungs and your immune system. The energy of your body is beginning to move inside where it will stay protected from the winter weather.

Fenn  pit (Continued  from  Page  1A) The   plan   was   projected   to   result   in   an   average   of   40   loaded   truck   trips   per  day,  via  a  new,  2,300-­foot  access   road  off  Route  116. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  a  project  that  drew  opposition   from   residents   in   the   Mead   Lane,   Butternut   Ridge   Drive,   Drew   Lane,   Lindale   Circle   and   Route   116   areas   who   claimed   the   gravel   pit   opera-­ tion   would   bring   dust,   toxic   fumes   and   noise   pollution   to   a   residential   area,   as   well   as   set   up   the   potential   for   collisions   between   trucks   enter-­ ing/exiting  the  site  and  motorists  and   cyclists  negotiating  busy  Route  116. The  Fenns  appealed  the  townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  de-­ nial   to   the   Vermont   Environmental   Court,  which  last  fall  ruled  in  favor   of  the  Middlebury  DRB.  The  Fenns   then   appealed   the   Environmental   Court   decision   to   the   Vermont   Su-­ preme   Court   â&#x20AC;&#x201D;   which   also   sided   with  the  town. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I  am  thrilled,â&#x20AC;?  said  neighbor  Vir-­ ginia  Heidke,  one  of  dozens  of  area   residents  who  spoke  against  the  proj-­ ect  during  several  Development  Re-­ view  Board  meetings  over  the  course   of  more  than  a  year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   a   huge   sense   of   relief,   and  a  strong  sense  that  our  commu-­ nity  efforts  were  well  worth  it.â&#x20AC;? The   Supreme   Courtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   nine-­page   decision,   written   by   Associate   Jus-­ tice  John  A.  Dooley,  was  unanimous.

one  trip  every  12  minutes,  with  load-­ ed   trips   averaging   about   one   every   24  minutes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Applicants  have  not  cited  any  law   or   authority   or   advanced   any   argu-­ ment  to  support  their  claim,  nor  have   we  discovered  any  basis  to  conclude   that   the   DRB   may   not   rely   on   the   maximum  number  of  trips  in  assess-­ ing  the  projectâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  impact  on  the  char-­ acter  of  the  area,â&#x20AC;?  the  court  ruled.

Is oil undercoating recommended? Angie at Mikeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Auto: Absolutely. With the kind of winters we have here and the amount of salt on the roads â&#x20AC;&#x201D; you can really extend the life of your car by undercoating it. Randy at Randyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Service Center: It can be a good idea for cars that have a lot of exposed metal on the underside as it does slow the rust considerably. However, it might not be right for newer cars with a lot of plastic covers and exposed electrical parts that could be damaged from the undercoating.

Q & A

What does the check engine light actually mean? Should I rush it straight to the mechanic? Jacob at Mikeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Auto: Typically when the check engine light comes on it has to do with emissions. In 1996 the federal government passed a law stating that automakers had to standardize diagnostic trouble codes and create systems compliant with emissions standards. Computerized controls in your vehicle now indicate when those standards are not being met, which is when the check engine light comes on. While it typically is not an indication of catastrophic failure of your engine, your car cannot pass inspection with the check engine light on, and it likely means a EUHDFKLQDĂ&#x20AC;OWUDWLRQV\VWHP Look at your service manual to see if there is an obvious reason your check engine light may be on (the gas cap not on is a popular one), or bring it to the mechanic to ensure the engine is in proper operating order.

The clutch on my â&#x20AC;&#x2122;95 CRV is feeling loose. Is it worth replacing something major on a car WKDWLV\HDUVROGRUDWZKDWSRLQWLVLWQRWZRUWKĂ&#x20AC;[LQJEXWEHWWHUWRVWDUWDQHZ" Jacob at Mikeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Auto: &OXWFKZRUNDQGRWKHUK\GUDXOLFUHSDLUVDUHKLJKO\YDULDEOH<RXZRXOGKDYHWRKDYHWKHVSHFLĂ&#x20AC;F issue diagnosed because it could be as little as a small part $20 part and an hour of labor or as major as repairing the whole system. The best advice is to bring it to a mechanic and have it checked out.

How much different are the really expensive winter tires versus the less expensive ones? I know high quality usually costs more, but the range seems pretty extreme. Can you explain? Steve at County Tire Center: Higher priced tires have low rolling resistance, which makes the tire roll smoothly and increases your mileage. Tires made by Nokian use higher canola oil content, which increases the tireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grip and traction in winter conditions and is more durable. It also KDVDQHQYLURQPHQWDOEHQHĂ&#x20AC;WUHSODFLQJ highly aromatic oils that are damaging to the environment and are known carcinogens. They are also tested in true winter conditions â&#x20AC;&#x201D; north of the Arctic circle â&#x20AC;&#x201D; on proven winter track, versus in an ice rink, as less expensive and less reliable tires often are.

Why do cars have a hard time starting when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cold? Also, is it true that you should you run your engine for a few minutes to let it â&#x20AC;&#x153;warm upâ&#x20AC;? when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cold out, or is that a myth? Stacy & Tommy at Foster Motors Service Center: Yes, when it is cold itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good idea to let your car run for 5 or 10 minutes before moving. It gets the oil DQGRWKHUĂ XLGVZDUP and moving through all of the systems properly, allowing all of the moving parts in your engine to turn freely. This is most important when temperatures drop below freezing and cars sit long enough to fully cool down.

I am in the market for a new car and the most important feature to me is the safety for my kids and family. Each dealer seems to think their cars are the safest on the market, but is there an unbiased resource that compares across the market? Craig at Foster Motors: Safercar.gov is an independent, government sponsored website that provides unbiased safety ratings for vehicles and is probably the best resource to follow. It is run through the 1DWLRQDO+LJKZD\7UDIĂ&#x20AC;F Safety Association and provides a star rating system that ranks cars based on multiple crash tests (front, sides, rear, etc). Monroney stickers are labels required in the United States for all new vehicles OLVWLQJRIĂ&#x20AC;FLDOLQIRUPDWLRQ about the car. Safety information is included in Monroney labels, which offers another way to compare safety information across markets.

Does oil REALLY need to be changed every 3000 miles? Tyler at Mikeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Auto: Yes, if you are using petroleum-based oil. Not changing your oil wears your motor parts out faster. The detergents and cleaning agents mixed in the oil break down over time, causing your oil to get dirty and lose their function in keeping the motor well lubricated. Dirt and other byproducts are Ă&#x20AC;OWHUHGRXWVRWKH\GRQRWZHDU on the engine, but changing oil regularly is important for this system to function (this is why checking the cleanliness of your oil with a dipstick can help you remember to change your oil). If you get tired of changing your oil so frequently, consider changing to synthetic oil, which only has to be changed every 5,000 miles. Synthetic oil applies a thinner barrier on the moving parts, but the lubrication properties are higher for most motors, allowing it to last longer.

What is the actual difference between the different gas â&#x20AC;&#x201D; regular, premium, etc? What does the high or low octane level mean? Does it make your car run better, gas mileage increase, or some other measurable gain? Randy at Randyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Service Center: Higher grades of gasoline with higher octane levels burn cleaner. That means they are cleaner for the exhaust system as well as other parts of the car in most cases.

What is the most important routine maintenance that I can do for my car to help it last longer and perform more highly? Stacy & Tommy at Foster Motors Service Center: 1.   Change oil and Ă&#x20AC;OWHUDQGOXEH every 3,000 miles 2.   Perform a basic safety check every 3,000 miles Randy at Randyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Service Center: Preventative maintenance is the most important â&#x20AC;&#x201D; regular oil changes, routine tire rotations (to check the brakes and suspension systems), and whatever other routine maintenance is recommended by the vehicle manufacturer can help keep an eye on the regular systems and the issues that may arise allowing you to catch a problem before it LVWRRODWHWRĂ&#x20AC;[
