Question About the Race for Brattleboro Selectboard 3-Year Seat

During last year's race for District 3 representative, there was a vigorous discussion here on iBrattleboro about the character of one of the candidates, that she was deceptive in characterizing her role in an earlier campaign, and then when a radio personality questioned her about it, she proceeded to attack him, and then, writing directly to his bosses, she attacked his job.

The question itself was never fully answered, but the controversy did reveal quite a bit about the candidate.

Is this character reference relevant to the upcoming election, or is it old news?

Beginners Tai Chi Series

New Beginners Tai Chi Series with Thomas Garbarino March 14-June 13 Thursday 5:30-6:30 

Tai Chi Chuan (Taiji Quan) is an ancient form of martial art that has been practiced for both health and self defense. It can be practiced for recreation and to increase strength, flexibility, and vitality well into old age. Tai Chi Chuan is not performed in the same manner as most western calisthenics or sports. It requires a tremendous amount of mental and physical concentration and control. Tai Chi Chuan is often described as a moving meditation. After practice, one feels invigorated, clear-minded, and peaceful.

Dogs In Hot Cars Campaign

RedRover, the Sacramento, CA based animal welfare and rights advocacy organization with an international scope, is ramping up their My Dog is Cool Campaign before the summer months arrive and dog safety in cars becomes more urgent. As part of their information resources development, they have compiled a media reports data base, as actual incidents of dogs suffering, dying or requiring euthanasia after being left in hot cars are believed to go often unreported, making accurate data collection problematic.

Here is the link to their new media reports data base:

E-commerce Shopping Cart Options?

My small business is planning to launch an e-commerce site in the next few months and is looking into shopping cart options.   I'm wondering if anyone has done recent research on the pros and cons of the various tools out there.  Initially, the number of products offered will be fewer than 20 and we'll probably use PayPal for the financial transactions.  Simple integration with QuickBooks would be nice.  Can anyone help us out?

THANKS!
