Fire Prevention Week is Oct. 7-13, and I’m sure area fire departments are advising county residents to have everything checked out before lighting the furnace.

We’re all going nuts

A heavy mast means a hard winter, so the saying goes, and if that’s the case, we’re in for a cold one, judging by the crunching noise under my feet.
