Time change this weekend

The time changes this weekend. Fall back one hour. In other words, if you go to bed at 11 p.m. on Saturday, change your clocks to 10 p.m. You gain an hour of sleep. There will be more daylight in the mornings, which is a safety factor for children going to school; but, you’ll loose an hour of daylight in the evenings. 

Here's a brief history of the clock in the Railroad Park downtown.
The timepiece was installed in 2003 as part of the village's sesquicentennial celebration. The community raised $10,000 to have the clock and its digital system made by the Verdin Company, Cincinnati, bell makers since 1842.

The clock is now set on Westminster chimes, striking every 15 minutes, not just on the hour. The chimes strike Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Because of its age and use the past 15 years, the clock no longer plays music and it would be costly to repair.
