Daylight-saving time ends Sunday

Believe it or not, Daylight-saving time is coming to an end. This Saturday, Nov. 2, we turn our clocks back one hour before going to bed.

Be safe when walking or jogging after dinner in the evening since night will fall upon us earlier. Also, make sure you are visible to drivers by wearing light or reflective clothing.

Try to keep warm on those chilly autumn nights.


Election Day is Tuesday, Nov. 5.

Although this is not a presidential election year, your vote is still very important.

Remember to do your civic duty and get out and vote.
