Don't forget to change your clock

When the fall winds blow you know it's time to change the clocks back one hour. That will officially take place this Sunday, November 6 at 2 a.m. So before you go to bed just set your clock back and enjoy the extra hour of sleep in the morning.
Also at this time, local firemen encourage everyone to check their smoke detectors. Make sure the batteries are working properly before the winter season begins when fires are more prominent.

Property taxes are due Nov. 10

Ripley County Treasurer Earline Copeland reminds property taxpayers that their taxes are due November 10 for the fall installment.
To help serve the public, the treasurer's office will have extended hours of 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Monday, November 7, Wednesday, November 9, and Thursday, November 10.
The courthouse will be closed November 8 for the General Election and November 11 for Veterans Day.
For taxpayers who will be mailing their payments, please make sure the post office postmarks the envelope with November 10 so it can be counted as "on time" payments. Payments may also be put in the drop box located on the east side of the courthouse on the square in Versailles. Please do not put cash in the box.
