“Daylight savings time is almost here. We can’t forget to move the clocks forward,” my husband commented the other day. “Oh, no. I have a hard time with losing an hour of sleep when we ‘spring ahead,’ ” I replied.
Here are a few things you probably don’t know about WDAY-TV anchor Kerstin Kealy: Her nickname is “Sheriff,” she coaches girls’ basketball in her free time and she has the most wicked of all golf swings.
If you’ve ever had “Go to New Orleans for Mardi Gras” on your bucket list, better get a move on. This is the weekend to do it. Mardi Gras is French for “Fat Tuesday” which is next Tuesday.
