TIME CHANGES, FALL BACK:
One resident wrote, “Daylight Saving Time is my favorite time of the year, up there with any holiday. It is a joy to drive home from work in the light and to have light to walk after dinner. Any car crashes that happen in the first few days of the switch from Standard Time to Daylight Saving Time most likely come from losing that hour of sleep. That is why crashes do not increase when we switch back from Daylight Saving Time to Standard Time and gain an hour of sleep. But the return to Standard Time can bring a degree of depression, especially when leaving work at the end of the workday only to face a dark sky. Oh, the joy, when we finally remain on Daylight Saving Time all year!
The Revere Annual 5K Run Fundraiser will be held at 9 a.m. on Sunday, November 5 on the Paul Revere campus, 1450 Allenford Avenue.
The fee is $10 for students and $20 for all others. Or if you cannot run, you can go to the website and make a donation click here.
