Turn Those Clocks Back This Weekend

Daylight saving time will end at 2 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 5, and Pennsylvania residents will be turning their clocks back one hour before going to bed on Saturday night.

Experts recommend using this reminder to check or change the batteries in smoke detectors and carbon monoxide alarms. Smoke detectors and carbon monoxide alarms should be replaced every 10 years, and located near bedrooms and on each level of the residence.

Use Caution: Deer on the Move

The Pennsylvania Game Commission is reminding motorists to slow down and stay alert for deer on the roadways.

Deer become more active in the autumn with the lead-up to their fall breeding season, commonly referred to as the “rut.” Autumn also sees a number of people taking part in outdoor activities that might flush deer from forested areas or briar thickets, and deer are more actively feeding to store energy for winter months.
Add to this the end of daylight saving time, which results in more traffic between dawn and dusk, and the chances of vehicle accidents with deer increase significantly.

In fact, Pennsylvania ranks third nationally in State Farm’s annual report on the likelihood drivers in each state will collide with a deer or other large animal. According to the report, Pennsylvania drivers have a 1-in-63 chance of experiencing a collision with a deer or other large animal – a 6.3 percent increase from 2016.

Drivers can reduce their chances of collisions with deer by staying alert and better understanding deer behavior. Be especially alert in “Deer Crossing” areas, and remember deer tend to travel in family groups, so if you see one deer, more are likely coming.

To report a dead deer for removal from state roads, motorists can call the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation at 1-800-FIX-ROAD. If the deer is on a locally owned road, contact the appropriate municipality.
                  
         
Nominate a Historical Marker in Your Community

The Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission (PHMC) is encouraging individuals, private organizations, local or county governments and public agencies to nominate historic properties, persons and events of significance on a state or national level for the Pennsylvania Historical Marker Program.

The person, place, event or innovation to be marked must have had a significant impact on its times, and have a statewide and/or national, rather than local or regional, historical significance. The significance of the subject must be historically established rather than of contemporary interest.

The annual deadline to nominate is Dec. 1. Click here for all the details, eligibility requirements, nomination form and contact information if you are interested in learning more
