Happy Halloween! News You Can UseWeathersfield Town Clerk news: Early voting is now open. You can vote anytime the town clerk’s office is open between now and Monday, Nov. 5. Of note on the ballot, one page 2 there are only Democrats listed for Justices of the Peace. The Progressives and Republicans did not get their candidate names to the town clerk in time to be on the ballot. It’s believed that both parties will be running write-in votes with candidates stationed outside the polling place-Martin Memorial Hall on Tuesday Nov.6.

We had our first snow this past week. Not sure everyone saw it but those of us in the higher elevations woke to see the ground covered on Thursday. Some are giddy with excitement for winter; others are packing and getting ready to fly south. Which group do you fall into? Another sign that fall/winter is here, our second tax installment is due on Nov. 7, the day after we vote in the mid-term elections.

The select board met Monday night and voted unanimously in favor of moving towards a municipal fire department for the town. Jeff Epstein wrote about the meeting in his article for The Eagle Times on Oct. 16. Video of the meeting should be posted to the SAPA-TV website soon.

And speaking of voting, I voted early on Monday. Yes, you can vote anytime now until Nov. 6 at 7 p.m.. Be sure to exercise your right to vote. One thing I noticed on page two of the ballot, only the Democrats were listed for Justice of the Peace. I asked the town clerk about this and she said the progressives and republicans did not present their candidates for J.P. before the deadline to be on the ballot therefore they will be running write-in campaigns. Look for the candidates outside Martin Memorial Hall on Nov. 6 between 8 a.m. and 7 p.m. for more information.

Columbus day is behind us and we're moving towards Halloween. The leaves are falling and need raking. The screens need to come off the windows to be store for next spring. Soon we'll be shoveling snow. YUK. I'm glad we've had a couple of days of warm weather to keep in our memories until next April or May. For me the best part about the colder weather is scarves! Yup, scarves-I love to wear them. So cheers for scarf weather and never mind the cold, damp, dark days ahead of us.

Well, the 26th Annual Vermont 50 Mountain Bike or Ultra run is behind me now. I'm back to my regularly scheduled fall projects-cleaning out the basement, harvesting the garden and getting the house ready for winter. It feels like I just finished my spring cleaning, how can it already be time for fall and winter projects. Where does the time go?
