Thanksgiving is around the corner

This year continues to fly by. We are now one week away from Thanksgiving!

If you are having friends and family over for dinner, surely you have begun to create your shopping list.

Thanksgiving is a fun holiday since we see many friends and family who return to town and we have the opportunity to sit down with them to a delicious feast.

We also need to remember those who are struggling to put food on the table this year. We can all help those in need by contributing to our local food bank and the many other local charities that help support those in need.

Turn clocks back Saturday

This Saturday, Nov. 3, remember to turn your clock back one hour before you go to bed. Daylight-saving time ends on Sunday.

The months have flown by and now it is time to hibernate, so to speak, for the winter months. Darkness is coming earlier each night, making it hard to participate in outdoor activities and exercise.

Be safe if you continue to walk or jog in the evening hours by wearing reflective athletic wear or light colored clothing.

Don't forget Election Day is Tuesday, Nov. 6.

Autumn is in full swing. The leaves will soon look beautiful, but when they are down on a wet road, they make for rough travel. Take caution when driving on rainy days and nights.

Stiles column: Caution: school is in session

Thursday, September 6, 2012 by MICHELE KERN Special to The Press in Local News

Most area schools are now in session for the 2012-13 school year. This means the morning commute will be busier for all on their way to work and school.

Be aware of students walking to bus stops and school and drive cautiously. You may even want to leave the house a little earlier to get a jump start on the heavier traffic. Stay safe.

With Labor Day behind us, we are headed into autumn and a busy schedule for fall sports.
