Time ChangeStarting in 2007, daylight time begins in the United States on the second Sunday in March and ends on the first Sunday in November. On the second Sunday in March, clocks are set ahead one hour at 2:00 a.m. local standard time, which becomes 3:00 a.m. local daylight time. On the first Sunday in November, clocks are set back one hour at 2:00 a.m. local daylight time, which becomes 1:00 a.m. local standard time. These dates were established by the Energy Policy Act of 2005, Pub. L. no. 109-58, 119 Stat 594 (2005).
Not all places in the U.S. observe daylight time. In particular, Hawaii and most of Arizona do not use it. Indiana adopted its use beginning in 2006.
In 2006, daylight time began on April 2 and ended on October 29.
In 2007, daylight time began on March 11 and ends on November 4. [New law goes into effect.]
In 2008, daylight time begins on March 9 and ends on November 2.
Golden or Bald?
Eagles are feeding on the deer kills along the highways. Is this a Golden Eagle or a Bald Eagle? It's probably over 3 feet high, and is bigger than some mature Bald Eagles that were near it. We think it's an immature Golden Eagle, but let us know what you think (or know). firstname.lastname@example.org
The Storms Of Summer
Monday, July 14, 2008, we had one of the worse storms I remember. The large popple tree above was healthy but it was uprooted by winds that were the strongest I've seen in the 31 years I've lived here. Some reported that winds neared 100 miles per hour. The weather bureau had numerous warnings and reports. The Marcell area seemed to get hit harder than other places, but there was lots of activity all over the area. We just got our power back this evening, and some people may not get it back until tomorrow. At 8 a.m. this morning there were still a thousand people without power according to the local electric company. The linemen deserve a lot of credit for the way they repaired the damaged power lines. Thanks.

The Date of Easter
Elect Bob Lawler
The Lone Wolf He is called a "Lobo". This lone wolf was probably the pack leader, having been challenged by a younger or stronger male. The female chooses the winner. Ostracized by the rest of the pack, he's been seen quite a bit lately near Marcell. He looks healthy and does not seem too concerned about people or cars. He just seems to mind his own business. Still a wolf, he will have to avoid the pack and their territory, and survive.
