Salisbury schools closed March 8 for an in-service day

Despite Punxsutawney Phil’s prediction for an early spring, The snow keeps piling up. Hopefully spring arrives soon.

All Salisbury Township schools will be closed March 8 for a teacher in-service day. School will resume March 11.

Daylight saving time begins March 10; don’t forget to “spring” those clocks forward one hour. Also remember to change your smoke detector batteries as well.

We love our fire departments; however, seeing them due to a fire is not the best way to meet them.

No compass necessary

As the snow (hopefully) stops falling and the weather takes a turn for the better, the snowbirds who made their annual trek south at the start of winter begin to return back north. They use planes, trains and cars allowing their navigation systems, maps, conductors and pilots to lead the way.

Similarly, months ago many real birds began their annual journey south and will soon return back north, but these birds don’t have GPS or a map to show them the way. How exactly do they know which way to fly?
