Book of the Week
This week’s Book of the Week is ‘American Spy’ by Lauren Wilkinson
This book has caught people’s attention because it is unique in the genre of Cold War espionage. More of dramatized memoir than a thriller, ‘American Spy’ is a confessional letter from Marie Mitchell to her two sons, explaining what she did when she was a young black woman in Cold War Era CIA and finally given a task worthy of her talents, infiltrating and earning the trust of the revolutionary president of Burkino Faso, Thomas Sankaro. After love and loss, success and fallout, Marie ends up accomplishing more than she, or anyone else expects.

Nature Corner: Daylight Savings Time
by Wendy Oellers-Fulmer
On Sunday, about 40% of countries worldwide set their clocks ahead of standard time for Daylight Savings Time (DST); in efforts to save energy and take advantage of daylight. Austria and Germany initiated the practice in 1916 to save fuel for the war effort which was quickly supported by England and France. After the war, they returned to standard time, only to reinstate DST during World War II. Although Germany and Austria were the first countries to use DST, an intrepid group of Canadians beat that clock by 8 years. On July 1, 1908, the clocks were turned forward by 1 hour in the town of Port Arthur, Ontario. Other cities followed the practice and by 1916, it became one of the bylaws in Canada. One advantage of getting up an hour earlier was watching the sunrise. Picture was taken on Sunday!
