SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the SC Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.
Daylight Saving Time ends on Sunday, November 7 this year, so remember to roll your clocks back one hour that day. In the U.S., clocks change at 2 a.m. local time as this was originally chosen as the changeover time because it was practical and minimized disruption. So when Sunday hits, don’t be remiss in the time change. Changing your clocks is a good reminder to also change the batteries in your smoke alarms according to the Orange County Fire Authority. This is the best time to check your smoke alarm and change their batteries. Nationally, approximately 75 percent of failed smoke alarms are due to missing batteries.
