FALL BACK TONIGHT
Daylight Saving time ends at 2 a.m. Sunday. Everyone is reminded to set your clocks back one hour before going to bed tonight. Area fire officials say it’s also a good time to check smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors and change the batteries. Having a working smoke alarm increases your chance of survival in the event of a home fire. Daylight Saving Time is four weeks longer since 2007 due to the passage of the Energy Policy Act. The Act extended Daylight Saving Time by four weeks from the second Sunday of March to the first Sunday of November.

LIGHTING AT THEATER 29
While the actors on stage get most of the recognition in Community Theater, many hands are needed behind the scenes to make the productions successful. ROP Broadcasting Student Hunter Stepp joins us with details on one of the most important jobs, the lighting technicians...
You are sitting in a theatre, and it’s dark. Suddenly the lights go up and the show begins. Most patrons in a typical theater do not realize how much work goes into the lighting during a show. According to Gary Daigneault, a director at Theater 29, the most important part of lighting is to make sure that all of the actions and the stage is illuminated, and that the illumination fits the scene and characters. Mr. Daigneault also added that the intensity of the lights must also fit the character and the scene. He continued to say that the balance of the tow basic colors which are cool and warm, must wash the stage from both sides. So there is much more work in lighting than most people think.
