Sunday April 5th Christians throughout the world celebrate Easter ...the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. It is typically the most well-attended Sunday service of the year for Christian churches. Sunday morning service times vary, including sunrise services. Contact local churches directly for times and more information.  

Easter is really an entire season of the Christian church year, as opposed to a single-day observance. Lent, the 40-day period leading up to Easter Sunday, is a time of reflection and penance and represents the 40 days that Jesus spent alone in the wilderness before starting his ministry, a time in which Christians believe He survived various temptations. 

The week preceding Easter is called Holy Week and includes Maundy Thursday, which commemorates Jesus' last supper with his disciples; Good Friday, which honors the day of his crucifixion; and Holy Saturday, which focuses on the transition between the crucifixion and resurrection. The 50-day period following Easter Sunday is called Eastertide and includes a celebration of Jesus' ascension into heaven.

In addition to Easter's religious significance, it also has a commercial side. The Easter Bunny, egg hunts, mounds of jelly beans and marshmallow chicks that appear in stores each spring have become a standard part of this holy holiday. HE IS RISEN !!!

In our area, and for most states in America, daylight savings time starts at 2 a.m. on Sunday, March 8th.  

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.

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 again on Sunday, November 1st, 2015.

RADIO GETS RESULTS...and WASR features AM TALK RADIO... the #1 radio format.  And since talk radio listeners are paying attention, your ad gets heard...and remembered.  

Talk Radio popularity has grown strongly, while at the same time, print readership has been in steep decline... Just look at any magazine or newspaper...its content is nothing like it used to be.  

While a website and email may be part of your marketing, they should not be your focus. The public is in internet advertising overload.  Efforts in these areas tend to have the least return on investment (in terms of both time & money).  

If your advertising budget does not currently include radio, a simple re-allocation of 20-30% of your print budget will get you started.  Readers do not even perceive these reductions in print ads...and that same money re-allocated to talk-radio can give you much greater results.  

Certainly, even more radio ads can give you even more results, but getting started is the most important thing you can do to help promote your business. Start off the new year by giving yourself more chance for growth and success!  

Also...Ask yourself, "What did you do differently with your advertising  last year to make your business stand-out and help it succeed?" No matter what the answer... you need to CALL WASR!

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.
