Things Â we Â donâ€™t Â like Â to Â talk Â about Letter The Â Oct. Â 14 Â print Â issue Â of Â this Â umn, Â Iâ€™ve Â painted Â a Â picture Â of Â small Â newspaper Â featured Â the Â headline, Â town Â Vermont Â in Â which Â the Â worst Â â€œTransitional Â apartments Â offered Â in Â thing Â is Â the Â foibles Â of Â the Â weather.

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

Â There Â is Â adamant Â opposi-Â tion Â to Â this Â from Â the Â people Â whose Â lives Â would Â be Â affected Â by Â this Â pipeline. Â Yet Â most Â of Â our Â representa-Â tives Â seem Â to Â not Â want Â to Â represent Â our Â viewpoint. The Â Shoreham Â selectboard Â members Â in Â particular Â seem Â to Â be Â refusing Â to Â represent Â the Â opinions Â of Â community Â members Â and Â landown-Â ers Â in Â Shoreham. Â Paul Â Saenger, Â a Â Shoreham Â selectman, Â recently Â said Â in Â an Â Addison Â Independent Â article, Â â€œThe Â selectboardâ€™s Â focus Â will Â be Â to Â get Â the Â
best Â possible Â deal Â for Â the Â town Â (if Â the Â project Â is Â ultimately Â permitted).â€? Â He Â also Â stated Â that Â the Â selectboard Â will Â not Â get Â involved Â with Â property Â ownerâ€™s Â arguments Â with Â Vermont Â Gas Â regarding Â the Â pipeline. His Â priority Â should Â be Â representing Â the Â wishes Â of Â Shoreham Â landowners Â and Â residents. Â The Â best Â deal Â for Â the Â town Â would Â be Â NO Â PIPELINE. Â We Â do Â not Â want Â this Â pipeline. Â When Â we Â vote Â for Â people Â to Â represent Â us, Â we Â expect Â them Â to Â do Â so. Â Isnâ€™t Â that Â their Â job? Cornwall Â also Â has Â expressed Â their Â opposition Â to Â the Â pipeline, Â and Â their Â town Â government Â is Â doing Â a Â great Â job Â in Â supporting Â this. Â They Â have Â fought Â against Â this Â pipeline Â (and Â continue Â to Â ÂżJKWLW EHFDXVH&RUQZDOOÂśVFRPPX-Â

Â If Â your Â representatives Â are Â not Â doing Â their Â jobs Â by Â representing Â your Â opinion, Â please Â remember Â that Â in Â the Â next Â election.

Seriously, Â for Â our Â greater Â prosper-Â ity Â there Â is Â no Â substitute Â for Â the Â en-Â trepreneurial Â spirit, Â for Â those Â with Â inspiration Â who Â are Â willing Â to Â fol-Â low Â through Â with Â the Â perspiration Â to Â make Â their Â ideas Â become Â reality, Â thus Â creating Â prosperity Â for Â many Â more Â than Â themselves. Â In Â todayâ€™s Â jargon, Â these Â folks Â are Â the Â job Â creators. Â But Â as Â greater Â thinkers Â in Â history Â have Â noted, Â a Â central Â problem Â with Â capitalism Â is Â that Â capital Â tends Â to Â accumulate Â into Â the Â hands Â of Â fewer Â and Â fewer Â over Â time Â â€” Â immediately Â after Â the Â recession, Â the Â richest Â 20 Â percent Â in Â the Â United Â States Â owned Â
93 Â percent Â of Â the Â nationâ€™s Â wealth, Â ac-Â cording Â to Â one Â source. Those Â with Â that Â wealth Â are Â us-Â ing Â it Â to Â accumulate Â more Â by Â doing Â their Â best, Â as Â they Â have Â for Â more Â than Â a Â century, Â to Â enter Â politics Â in Â order Â to Â limit Â government Â power Â to Â regulate Â their Â businesses, Â how Â they Â deal Â with Â their Â workers, Â make Â their Â products Â safer, Â and Â treat Â the Â envi-Â ronment. Â This Â goal Â is Â really Â what Â all Â Tea Â Party Â and Â other Â right-Âwing Â political Â rhetoric Â is Â about, Â and Â what Â citizens Â should Â keep Â in Â mind Â when Â listening Â to Â the Â noise.
here Â costumes, Â I Â will Â dress Â up Â as Â a Â middle-Âaged Â woman Â in Â a Â sweatshirt Â DQGĂ€DQQHOORXQJHSDQWV0DUNDQG I Â will Â crash Â on Â the Â couch, Â watch Â a Â movie, Â and Â pig Â out Â on Â the Â Snickers Â bars Â we Â bought Â on Â the Â laughable Â pretense Â that Â we Â might Â get Â trick-Âor-Â
treaters Â this Â year. I Â wonâ€™t Â look Â like Â a Â sexy Â anything. Â Who Â cares? Â At Â least Â thereâ€™s Â no Â chance Â Iâ€™ll Â be Â mistaken Â for Â an Â outhouse. Â Call Â me Â a Â party Â pooper, Â but Â I Â consider Â that Â a Â happy Â Halloween.

Note Â the Â blame Â shift Â to Â the Â govern-Â ment Â (the Â mortgage Â agencies Â Fannie Â Mae Â and Â Freddie Â Mac Â have Â federal Â ties), Â and Â the Â complaint Â about Â even Â modest Â regulation. Now, Â I Â want Â to Â make Â clear Â I Â am Â completely Â in Â favor Â of Â capitalism. Â In Â most Â of Â the Â world, Â even Â here, Â I Â am Â a Â moderate Â who Â believes Â in Â a Â regulat-Â ed Â free Â market Â with Â an Â adequate Â so-Â cial Â safety Â net. Â Those Â beliefs Â do Â not Â make Â me Â a Â wild-Âeyed Â pinko Â radical.

Learn to be on time; itâ€™s a gift to yourself and your community An Â old Â friend Â of Â mine Â shared Â some Â thoughts Â about Â punctuality. Â â€œEarly Â is Â on Â time, Â on Â time Â is Â late, Â and Â late Â is Â unacceptable!â€? Â This Â was Â my Â friendâ€™s Â philosophy Â about Â getting Â her Â daughter Â to Â her Â youth Â symphony Â rehearsals Â on Â time. Â Or Â rather, Â early. Â Because Â if Â you Â want Â to Â truly Â be Â on Â time, Â you Â must Â arrive Â early. Â In Â our Â yoga Â tradition, Â each Â class Â begins Â with Â the Â chanting Â of Â the Â sound Â om, Â followed Â by Â the Â Invocation Â to Â Sage Â Patanjali, Â who Â was Â the Â compiler Â of Â the Â Yoga Â Sutras, Â the Â essential Â teachings Â of Â yoga Â philosophy. Â It Â is Â powerful Â to Â experience Â the Â way Â chanting Â draws Â us Â together Â as Â a Â group Â of Â practitioners. Â Beginning Â students Â may Â not Â understand Â why Â we Â start Â each Â class Â this Â way, Â but Â they Â are Â easily Â able Â to Â experience Â the Â calm Â and Â focus Â that Â the Â sound Â evokes. Unfortunately, Â students Â arriv-Â ing Â late Â to Â class Â miss Â this Â impor-Â tant Â start Â to Â the Â practice. Â They Â are Â greeted Â by Â a Â sign Â that Â says, Â â€œStop! Â Do Â you Â hear Â chanting? Â If Â so, Â
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 Â wait Â Â until Â chanting Â ends, Â and Â then Â enter Â the Â room Â quietly.â€? In Â my Â early Â 20s, Â when Â I Â first Â discovered Â yoga, Â I Â often Â had Â a Â very Â difficult Â time Â getting Â myself Â to Â class, Â or Â actually Â anywhere, Â on Â time. Â It Â was Â a Â life Â skill Â I Â had Â not Â yet Â developed. Â I Â hadnâ€™t Â yet Â learned Â that Â arriving Â on Â time Â for Â a Â 6 Â p.m. Â yoga Â class Â means Â entering Â the Â yoga Â studio Â several Â minutes Â before Â six Â oâ€™clock. Â Because Â we Â need Â time Â to Â take Â off Â our Â shoes, Â set Â up Â our Â mat Â in Â the Â yoga Â room, Â and Â maybe Â some Â extra Â time Â for Â chang-Â ing Â clothes Â or Â using Â the Â bathroom. Before Â I Â developed Â the Â life Â skill Â of Â arriving Â on Â time, Â I Â would Â always Â push Â everything Â to Â the Â last Â possible Â moment. Â If Â I Â knew Â I Â could Â bike Â to Â the Â yoga Â studio Â in Â 15 Â minutes, Â and Â the Â class Â started Â at Â 6, Â I Â would Â leave Â my Â house Â at Â 5:45. Â So Â I Â would Â be Â the Â breath-Â less, Â flustered Â person Â rushing Â into Â the Â studio Â and Â looking Â for Â a Â place Â to Â put Â my Â mat Â right Â when Â the Â teacher Â was Â getting Â ready Â to Â begin Â the Â lesson.

At Â some Â point Â I Â for Â these Â possi-Â figured Â it Â out. Â I Â real-Â bilities, Â in Â order Â ized Â that Â it Â was Â more Â to Â still Â be Â able Â respectful Â to Â my Â to Â arrive Â at Â my Â teacher Â and Â fellow Â destination Â on Â students Â to Â get Â my Â time. butt Â into Â the Â yoga Â Now Â one Â of Â the Â room Â a Â few Â minutes Â practical Â aspects Â BEFORE Â the Â offi-Â of Â teaching Â cial Â start Â time Â of Â the Â yoga Â as Â a Â live-Â class. Â I Â figured Â out Â lihood, Â is Â that Â that Â my Â own Â body Â my Â paycheck Â is Â and Â mind Â were Â actu-Â bigger Â if Â more Â ally Â more Â receptive Â to Â students Â come Â the Â teachings Â if Â I Â had Â to Â class. Â So Â I Â a Â little Â time Â to Â settle Â welcome Â late Â myself Â before Â the Â arrivals Â with Â teaching Â began. Â And Â a Â smile Â and Â a Â on Â a Â purely Â practical Â friendly, Â â€œCome Â by Joanna Colwell level, Â I Â noticed Â that Â on Â in!â€? Â But Â by Â stuff Â happens. Â I Â real-Â starting Â my Â class Â ized Â that Â I Â couldnâ€™t Â count Â on Â my Â exactly Â on Â time, Â week Â after Â week, Â path Â to Â always Â be Â clear. Â Someone Â month Â after Â month, Â and Â year Â after Â might Â stop Â me Â to Â ask Â for Â direc-Â year, Â I Â hope Â to Â teach Â the Â impor-Â tions, Â a Â road Â detour Â might Â appear, Â tance Â of Â a Â punctual Â arrival. Â or Â even Â a Â delightful Â surprise, Â like Â All Â of Â us Â who Â embark Â on Â a Â yoga Â running Â into Â an Â old Â friend, Â could Â practice Â start Â with Â the Â bodies Â and Â cause Â a Â delay. Â I Â realized Â that Â it Â minds Â that Â we Â have. Â We Â might Â was Â my Â responsibility Â to Â allow Â begin Â yoga Â with Â a Â very Â bad Â back, Â
Ways of Seeing
a Â frozen Â shoulder, Â or Â a Â knee Â injury. Â Or Â we Â might Â begin Â our Â yoga Â practice Â with Â a Â depressed Â or Â anxious Â mind, Â a Â habit Â of Â being Â impatient, Â or Â a Â tendency Â to Â be Â late. Â In Â just Â the Â same Â way Â that Â a Â skillful Â teacher Â will Â work Â with Â a Â sore Â back Â or Â torn Â hamstring Â muscle, Â a Â good Â teacher Â will Â help Â her Â students Â learn Â to Â work Â with Â their Â own Â mental Â and Â emotional Â habits, Â including Â the Â pattern Â of Â rushing Â and Â being Â late. Â Often Â we Â can Â do Â this Â without Â even Â saying Â anything Â to Â the Â student, Â but Â simply Â by Â teaching Â with Â integrity, Â class Â after Â class. Like Â a Â good Â story, Â yoga Â class Â has Â a Â beginning, Â a Â middle Â and Â an Â end. Â It Â is Â best Â not Â to Â miss Â any Â of Â these Â parts. Joanna Â Colwell Â is Â the Â director Â of Â Otter Â Creek Â Yoga Â in Â Middleburyâ€™s Â Marble Â Works Â District. Â She Â lives Â in Â East Â Middlebury Â with Â her Â husband, Â daughter, Â father-Âin-Âlaw, Â and Â two Â cats.

Â she Â said. Aldermen Â all Â said Â they Â approved Â of Â the Â concept, Â but Â said Â they Â would Â like Â to Â work Â out Â something Â to Â ac-Â count Â for Â the Â two Â lost Â parking Â plac-Â es. Â â€œPut Â me Â down Â for Â a Â brick,â€? Â said Â Alderman Â Joe Â Klopfenstein, Â before Â adding, Â â€œI Â worry Â about Â the Â parking. Â The Â fewer Â people Â that Â cross Â Main Â Street, Â the Â better.â€? Klopfenstein Â suggested Â a Â pedestri-Â an-Âactivated Â light Â that Â would Â allow Â them Â to Â cross Â safely Â to Â city Â hall Â from Â parking Â spots Â on Â the Â other Â side Â of Â Main Â Street. Â Alderman Â Randy Â Ouellette Â said, Â â€œHaving Â the Â marquee Â further Â out Â would Â be Â nice,â€? Â and Â he Â suggested Â 15-Âminute Â parking Â limits Â for Â nearby Â spots Â that Â would Â tend Â to Â keep Â them Â available Â for Â city Â hall Â visitors. Alderman Â Lowell Â Bertrand Â also Â said Â he Â liked Â the Â project, Â and Â he Â not-Â ed Â that Â because Â now Â police Â cruisers Â typically Â park Â in Â those Â spaces Â they Â are Â rarely Â available Â to Â the Â public;Íž Â therefore, Â he Â said, Â their Â loss Â would Â not Â be Â that Â great. â€œItâ€™s Â not Â used Â much Â for Â parking Â anyway,â€? Â Bertrand Â said. Smart Â said Â FVOH Â and Â project Â de-Â signer Â Norm Â LeBoeuf Â hoped Â to Â off-Â
set Â the Â loss Â of Â the Â parking Â places Â by Â adding Â at Â least Â one Â handicap Â spot Â in Â the Â alley Â between Â city Â hall Â and Â the Â church Â next Â door. Â Smart Â said Â that Â space Â would Â offer Â easier Â handicap Â access Â to Â the Â building Â than Â the Â cur-Â rent Â curbside Â space. City Â Manager Â Mel Â Hawley Â said Â such Â an Â arrangement Â would Â also Â have Â WR EH DSSURYHG E\ FKXUFK RIÂżFLDOV however, Â and Â also Â said Â the Â project Â design Â would Â have Â to Â be Â careful Â not Â to Â have Â the Â marquee Â block Â sight Â lines Â from Â the Â alleys Â on Â either Â side Â of Â city Â hall. Â â€œVision Â is Â a Â concern,â€? Â Hawley Â said. Hawley Â also Â cautioned Â the Â curb Â height Â at Â Main Â Street Â should Â not Â be Â higher Â than Â the Â standard Â seven Â inch-Â es Â to Â protect Â against Â falls. Â Alderman Â Renny Â Perry Â said Â he Â would Â like Â to Â see Â plans Â include Â a Â spot Â where Â visitors Â could Â be Â dropped Â off Â safely. Â Perry Â also Â suggested Â replant-Â ing Â the Â trees Â now Â in Â front Â of Â city Â hall Â on Â the Â city Â green Â and Â replacing Â them Â with Â lower Â shrubs. Â But Â he Â spoke Â in Â favor Â of Â the Â concept. â€œI Â think Â the Â plaza Â is Â a Â good Â idea,â€? Â Perry Â said. Â Â Perry Â also Â addressed Â city Â hallâ€™s Â interior, Â saying Â to Â general Â council Â agreement Â that Â once Â police Â have Â moved Â to Â their Â new Â station Â what Â is Â QRZ &KLHI *HRUJH 0HUNHOÂśV RIÂżFH should Â be Â turned Â over Â to Â the Â opera Â house Â for Â use Â as Â a Â ticket Â booth Â and Â RIÂżFHVSDFHDQGZKDWLVQRZWKHSD-Â trol Â room Â could Â be Â meeting Â space Â for Â

that Â the Â parking Â questions Â should Â be Â parking Â options. addressed Â and Â cost Â estimates Â pinned Â â€œI Â think Â there Â is Â a Â consensus Â to Â down Â in Â the Â weeks Â to Â come.

Â The Â plan Â also Â calls Â for Â a Â new Â recreation Â center Â to Â be Â built Â off Â Mary Â Hogan Â Drive.

Â Opponents Â have Â been Â urging Â the Â selectboard Â to Â decline Â the Â college Â offer Â and Â to Â rebuild Â the Â municipal Â building Â and Â recreation Â structures Â at Â their Â current Â location.

Is oil undercoating recommended? Angie at Mikeâ€™s Auto: Absolutely. With the kind of winters we have here and the amount of salt on the roads â€” you can really extend the life of your car by undercoating it. Randy at Randyâ€™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€™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€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€™95 CRV is feeling loose. Is it worth replacing something major on a car WKDWLV\HDUVROGRUDWZKDWSRLQWLVLWQRWZRUWKĂ€[LQJEXWEHWWHUWRVWDUWDQHZ" Jacob at Mikeâ€™s Auto: &OXWFKZRUNDQGRWKHUK\GUDXOLFUHSDLUVDUHKLJKO\YDULDEOH<RXZRXOGKDYHWRKDYHWKHVSHFLĂ€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€™s grip and traction in winter conditions and is more durable. It also KDVDQHQYLURQPHQWDOEHQHĂ€WUHSODFLQJ highly aromatic oils that are damaging to the environment and are known carcinogens. They are also tested in true winter conditions â€” north of the Arctic circle â€” 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€™s cold? Also, is it true that you should you run your engine for a few minutes to let it â€œwarm upâ€? when itâ€™s cold out, or is that a myth? Stacy & Tommy at Foster Motors Service Center: Yes, when it is cold itâ€™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€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€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€™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€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€” 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€™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. Â Change oil and Ă€OWHUDQGOXEH every 3,000 miles 2. Â Perform a basic safety check every 3,000 miles Randy at Randyâ€™s Service Center: Preventative maintenance is the most important â€” 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€[

Power of Pink Cause marketing: Firm does its part By Â CHRISTY Â LYNN 0,''/(%85<Â˛/RRSHGULEERQVLQDYDULHW\RIFRO-Â ors Â have Â become Â internationally Â recognized Â symbols Â for Â causes Â and Â campaigns Â beginning Â in Â 1979 Â with Â the Â yel-Â low Â ribbon Â to Â represent Â military Â support Â and Â safety.

Â It Â was Â developed Â largely Â through Â the Â Susan Â B. Â Komen Â for Â the Â Cure Â foundation. Â The Â Middlebury Â company Â Beau Â Ties Â Ltd.
