Time Change

Starting 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.

The Lone Wolfclick for a larger view

  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.

Golden or Bald?
Click For a better view
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). editor@woodsnews.com

Memories of a Small Town
by Curt Newstrom

I am Gary LaGrange. I grew up in Marcell and married Jan Newstrom, daughter of Curt and Jennie Newstrom. Paula Alden asked us to have the book reprinted for the 100th anniversary which we did. We have 483 copies of Curt's Marcell book remaining and wish to find persons who would love to have a copy. We are willing to sell them for our cost plus shipping. The price is $8 and $5 for USPS postage.
Thank you.
Gary
