In 1872, Susan B. Anthony performed a courageous act. She voted, determined to prove that the 14th and 15th Amendments gave women the legal right to vote. The immediate result wasn't encouraging, though?a US marshal arrested her in her parlor, and then a federal judge fined her $100. But despite the resistance, Anthony's volition continued to inspire the suffrage movement, not to mention the abolitionist movement and the fight for equal educational opportunities for women.
More than a century later, the Susan B. Anthony Museum & House educates visitors on her life?from the many relationships that impacted her thinking, such as her friendship with slave-turned-abolitionist Frederick Douglass, to her acts of civil disobedience, such as refusing to pay the $100 fine for voting. The home, where Anthony lived from 1866 to 1906 in what were arguably her most politically active years, has undergone extensive restoration to look as it did when Anthony lived there. This ongoing effort has breathed new life into everything from the third-floor workspace, to the house?s foundation. Designated a National Historic Landmark, the home welcomes guests for guided tours and also offers a range of programs, inspiring individuals to continue working for equal rights for all.
The leashes from students’ untamed muscles are released during a fierce two-hour clinic that combines savage techniques with safe and principled instruction. Students are led through intense exercises armed with cast-iron kettlebells and medieval conditioning tools such as maces, hammers, and greased-up Bubonic battle-axes. Effort and intensity are emphasized with odd lifts and bodyweight motions that leave muscles throbbing with equal measures of rapture and fatigue. Small group classes begin on July 16 and will be held every other Saturday, with reservations required.

In his band AudioInflux, lead guitarist and backup vocalist George Miller works atop the deep grooves of soul, funk, and jazz styles. He's equally well equipped to get his guitar and bass students playing their favorite blues, rock, metal, or classical pieces, and even write and record solidly constructed pieces of their own. Armed with a degree in music performance and a decade and a half of teaching experience, Miller helps pupils with all kinds of goals unleash their inner B.B. King or Les Claypool, whether they want to front a band or simply harmonize with the bonfire during outdoor sing-alongs.
