From this week:
Daylight saving time is coming to an end. Time will revert back to standard time on Sunday, Nov. 6. All clocks will need to be set back one hour. The standard time to change clocks, according to the Daylight Saving Time Web site, is at 2 a.m. The 2 a.m. changeover was chosen to ensure as little disruption as possible. At this time, most people are at home and when train travel was a major factor, the fewest trains were running at this time. The early morning time also prevents the time change from changing days, which would happen if the change occurred at midnight or 1 a.m.
The West Texas Art Guild is sponsoring its Third Annual Regional Art Show at the Civic Center in Colorado City on Saturday, Nov. 19. The show is unique in that it lasts only one day so that artists can enter their artwork that morning, have it judged and pick it up that afternoon. Prizes will be offered and there will be five categories: Watercolor, oils/acrylics, dry media, photography and 3-D.
Carolyn Walker will be giving a painting demonstration in acrylics and this is for any interested persons. The demonstration will take place in the Civic Center and will be starting at 10 a.m.
