Weather - So, it's been winter for about a week now, and Mother Nature has gotten the memo. Despite yesterday's wet, warm 47 degree rainstorm, cooler temps will prevail over the weekend and will likely bring some snow on Saturday and again on Sunday. Set your boots and shovels by the door.
Matthew 25 Center - The Matthew 25 Center of Hope is open Sunday, Dec. 30, 4 p.m. at River First United Methodist Church, 17 Federal St. Meals are open to the community.
