Highway mowing to pick up next week

A contractor for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet and state highway maintenance crews plan to ramp up mowing activities along highways across the region starting on Monday.

Crews will be mowing along interstates, parkways, and federal highways, as well as many rural secondary highways. Mowing crews will be working during daylight hours about anytime weather allows.

A contract mowing crew will start at Interstate 24 near the Ohio River Bridge on Monday and work eastward. Once all 93 miles of I-24 are completed, the crew will move to the Purchase Parkway with a goal of finishing up by about mid-November if weather permits.

Litter pickup crews will be working in advance of contract mowing crews along major routes.

Please use appropriate caution when you encounter a mowing zone. Mower operators often have maneuver into travel lanes as they go about their work cutting grass along state right of way. This creates a potential conflict with passing traffic.

Due to the level of activity, mowing zones should be approached with the same level of caution as other work zones. Slow down, put down your cell phone, and pay close attention to what is ahead of you.

Daylight Saving Time ends Nov. 2

Daylight Saving Time will come to an end on Nov. 2 as the nation switches back to Standard Time.

The change, as usual, will be at 2 a.m. but most people change their clocks before going to bed the evening before, which in this case, will be Nov. 1.

A change in federal law switched the start and stop of Daylight Saving Time to March and November several years ago. Yet outdated information about the time change weekends continues to circulate on social media sites, such as Facebook.

We'll change back to Daylight Saving Time in early March 2015.

Warm fall weather coming to western Kentucky

If your fragile flora made it through this morning's chill they should live to see Halloween and - better yet - some sunny days in between. Although western Kentucky typically experiences its first freeze by about the third or fourth week of October, warmer weather patterns will give local residents and their gardens freeze-free nights for the foreseeable future.
