OnTheStreet_WPCHILLICOTHE, MO — Put this past weekend in a bottle and save it. It was a dandy for near mid-November with highs Saturday in the 60s and Sunday reaching 56. But change was scheduled to occur in a hurry with overnight low temperatures falling to 18 and 19 degrees by mid-week.

It seems to take several days to work out all of kinks, such as getting used to dark shortly after 5 p.m., short days, long nights, and finding a clock that wasn’t changed or the clock in the car that is still on “fast time.”

OnTheStreet_WPCHILLICOTHE, MO — A number of announcements last week, especially in the media field, had folks buzzing as the publisher of the Constitution-Tribune resigned, a popular morning radio personality switched local radio stations, and the newspaper named a native Chillicothean to be general manager. The announcements followed one the previous week of the Hy-Vee Store director resigning.
