The path less traveled

Drastic career change leads Jim Readey to a life of empowerment

It’s not a career path you hear about all that often. Lawyer-turned-yoga teacher is about as natural as the Insiders opening a vineyard. Not exactly the transition you’d expect. But for Jim Readey, the owner of the Yoga Center on South Main Street for the last decade, it was the right one.

City briefly

Each week, City Manager Tom Aspell thinks it’s spring. But he’s wrong. Each week. It’s still winter. When will it stop being winter? Does a bridge make a sound?But there’s a hearingFinal design and permitting to replace the Sewalls Falls Bridge began in late 2013 and included the development of a bridge type, size and location study, Aspell writes.
