Remember to change clocks; Daylight Saving Time begins
Daylight Saving Time begins this weekend.
Don’t forget to wind clocks forward one hour before going to bed this Saturday night.
Daylight Saving Time officially begins at 2 a.m. this Sunday, March 11.
The main purpose of Daylight Saving Time (called "Summer Time" in many places in the world) is to make better use of daylight. We change our clocks during the summer months to move an hour of daylight from the morning to the evening. Countries have different change dates.
The time to “fall back” in 2007 in the U.S. will be the first Sunday in November.
Walking Horse Classic moved to May 19 at fairgrounds
The Holly Springs Charity Walking Horse Classic has been rescheduled for Saturday, May 19.
The event will still be held at the Marshall County Fairgrounds on Highway 7 North. The show starts at 5 p.m. Admission is $5 for adults. Children 6 years and under are admitted free.
There will be 32 exciting classes, so call the chamber at 252-2943 for more information. The show benefits the American Cancer Society and the Holly Springs Chamber of Commerce.
Call 911 and fire department before controlled burns
Holly Springs firefighters answered 16 calls for the week of February 27-March 5, according to Tracy Jeffries with the department.
The department responded to the following calls: (1) rescue; (1) vehicle; (10) medical assistance; and (4) grass fires.
The department also made one assist to Benton County on a structure fire that started by spread of a trash fire, he said.
All controlled burns must be cleared with 911 dispatch and the local community fire department, Jeffries said.
It is time to check and change batteries in home smoke detectors. Fire departments recommend changing batteries twice a year, once in spring and once in fall as Daylight Saving Time begins and ends, respectively.
Daylight Saving Time begins March 11 at 2 a.m. Make sure to turn clocks forward one hour before going to bed Saturday, March 10.
