    MARCH.The month of March is known for windy weather. So far we’ve had a few windy nights along with some rain and some cooler temperatures. I’ve seen some spring flowers popping up through the ground.Is that a sign that spring is near? Some say we may get one more snowfall.

    TIME CHANGE. Did you remember to move your clocks up one hour before going to bed last night? We are now into what we call fast time.

       The spring rain has arrived. I hope the farmlands are drinking it up. My family and I recently visited Great Wolf Lodge in Mason, Ohio. My mother says we had a howling good time. The kids really enjoyed it and it was a nice way to stay warm.

  • March 13: Our readers write

    No need for derogatory terms
    I have been a very loyal News-Enterprise subscriber and reader now for almost 10 years.
    It was bad of you to say city government was “spending money like a bunch of drunken sailors,” as quoted on the front page of a recent paper (After debate, council approves expanded role of Heritage director, March 8.) It is derogatory and very outdated. When people make ignorant statements like that, do you have to publish it?

  • Focus on Finance: Electronic payments are a must

    Question: Is getting my Social Security check directly deposited even an option?

    Answer: For years, Social Security has stressed the convenience, security, and safety of getting benefit payments electronically. Soon, direct deposit (or Direct Express) will not only be the best way to receive federal benefit payments — it will be the only way.

    That’s because the U.S. Department of the Treasury announced a new rule that will phase out paper checks for federal benefit and non-tax payments by March 1, 2013.
