In our area, and for most states in America, time "springs forward" at 2AM on Sunday, March 9th as daylight savings time begins for 2014.
A few quick facts regarding DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME:
Ben Franklin is considered to be the first person to suggest daylight savings, thinking that it would allow for a better use of daylight. In 1918 a federal law standardized the yearly start and end of daylight savings time for the states that choose to observe it. The dates and times of daylight savings have varied over the years.
Most recently The Energy Policy Act of 2005 mandated an extension of it by one month starting in 2007. While not embraced by all, surveys show that most people enjoy having an extra hour of light in the evening for eight months of the year.
Time will" fall back" to standard time on Sunday, November 2nd.
Remember to set your clocks ahead before going to bed on Saturday night.

WASR has landed the TOP RATED talk radio show from Dennis Miller.
The DENNIS MILLER SHOW offers a lighter side to political talk radio infused with comedy and sarcasm. It is now one of the most popular radio-talk shows across the country.
The show features five-time Emmy award winner and four-time Writers' Guild award winner, Dennis Miller, delivering his unique take on the day's topics with comedy and satire. The 3-hour show also features Miller taking listener calls, as well as interviewing high-profile special guests.
Miller's program includes serious discussions about American culture, current events, politics, and their place in the global context. The show is infused with Miller's sarcasm, which is often characterized by obscure pop culture references. Most shows feature three guests (one per hour), mostly from the world of politics and entertainment, as well as calls from listeners.
Michael Savage is now on WASR. The NEW SAVAGE NATION show represents the host’s popularity and tremendous growth in listenership. The SAVAGE NATION is now one of the TOP TALK SHOWS in America! WASR is proud to be selected as a radio station to air this program. The timing for this program availability was great, as Mike Huckabee recently announced that he and his talk show syndicator were not able to come to terms, and he decided that his efforts were better spent in other areas. Savage Nation is now airing in that time slot, which is WEEKNIGHTS from 7PM to 10PM.
Michael Savage’s incisive thoughts on politics are augmented by his Defense of American Culture, the Middle Class, Traditional Values and Freedom of Speech. His famous “news, views and reviews” continues to inform and entertain millions of loyal and new listeners nationwide. Savage is the author of 28 books, including six New York Times bestsellers. He was awarded the coveted Freedom of Speech Award by Talkers Magazine and earned his Ph.D. from the University of California at Berkeley.

It has been an honor for me to serve our wonderful state as Majority Leader in the New Hampshire Senate. 2013 has proven to be an interesting and unique year in Concord. I witnessed and participated in something I have never seen in all my years of elective office: a budget that all 24 Senators on a bi-partisan basis voted for that was signed into law. This budget met the needs of New Hampshire citizens, while living within our means and not raising a single tax or fee.
But during the Holiday season, politics, even in the Live Free or Die State, become secondary as loved ones gather together to share the joy of the season. Yet for some New Hampshire families who are serving in the New Hampshire National Guard, that service creates challenges. I hope you will join me in this season of giving to consider making a donation to the New Hampshire Chaplain Emergency Relief Fund.
The Chaplain Emergency Relief Fund (CERF) provides quick, temporary financial help for NH military members and their families who are facing unexpected financial emergencies. Its express purpose is to assist with emergency needs such as rent and mortgage payments, heating fuel and other utilities, car repairs and insurance, medical bills, prescriptions, and the like. The fund is supported and sustained entirely by the generosity of members of the military community and the community at large. With the exception of sundry expenses such as stationary, stamps, and fees, 100% of contributions flow directly to the needs of military families.

Christmas is “The most wonderful time of the year” as the song goes. True, yet the real reason for the celebration has been so diluted that many have no idea what Christmas is really about, despite its namesake, Christ, being part of the name. Santa, holiday dinners, gift giving, decorating trees all make the season fun! THIS CHRISTMAS, take time to remember the real reason for the season…
The Holy Bible tells us that an angel came upon earth saying to Mary, “Do not be afraid, you have found favor with God. You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. Months later, Mary and Joseph were traveling and she gave birth to a son in a manger.
And there were shepherds nearby keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them. The angel said, “Fear not, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,” Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men”.
At Christmas we are celebrating the birth of Jesus, the savior God gave to the world. The gift of salvation, offered by the life and death of Jesus on the cross, is available to us all when we accept Him as Lord and Savior. This Christmas, make time to read about Christmas in the Bible. (Luke 2: verses 1-20). If you read it with a warm and open heart you’ll understand the real reason for the season.
From all of us at WASR... We wish you and your family a very MERRY CHRISTMAS!
