Friday, March 9
Essential daily information at a glance. For instance, it's time to "Spring Forward" on Sunday.
1. Forecast: Partly sunny. Scattered showers in the morning. Much cooler with highs in the mid 40s.
2. On Sunday (or before you go to bed Saturday night) it's time to "Spring Forward" your clocks and change your smoke and CO detector batteries. As "Mr. Safety Man," as my wife sometimes calls me, I particularly like the "changing the batteries" part of this seasonal rite.
4. All year local wags have been competing in MassMouth "Story Slams." On Sunday, winners will tell their stories again in the season's semifinals. At stake is shot at the finals and a weeklong vacation to a Tuscan villa. 2:30 p.m. Sunday at Doyle's. $15 cover.
5. Polls close at 9 a.m. in this week's "Best of Patch Readers' Choice" contest about the best preschool or day care in JP. We'll announce the winner at noon.
