  • Clocks change this weekend back to Standard Time

    Daylight Savings Time will come to an end this weekend when Standard Time returns.

    At 2 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 4, clocks will be turned backward one hour. At that moment, the time will become 1 a.m. Standard Time.

    The best practice, of course, is just to set clocks backward 1 hour before going to bed Saturday night. The time will then be correct when you awaken Sunday.

    By Shelby Wilcoxson

    Today in 4-H we talked about people getting sick and ways to keep from getting sick.  One way to keep from getting sick is to wash your hands.  You sneeze on yourself then you start touching things and spreading germs.  

    The first step in washing your hands is to get warm water and apply soap.  When you get cold water your pores shrink and trap the dirt and germs.  When you use warm water the pores on your skin expands.  This allows you to get the dirt and germs out.
