Author Carol Wallace discusses her new book, Leaving Van Gogh--her first historical novel.

"A haunting novel of bold strokes and fine-grained gestures, one that resonates long after its last, luminous page. In Carol Wallaces' masterful hands Van Gogh's pictures spring to life every bit as brilliantly as does the painter himself." Stacy Schiff, author of Cleopatra: A Life.

Some cant wait for the opportunity to enjoy one extra hour of sleep, others dread changing all the clocks scattered in their homes.

Daylight Saving Time started in March when we set the clocks forward one hour and will stop once again at 2 a.m. Sunday, so it's time to set clocks back before you go to bed Saturday to return to Standard Time.

SILENCE IS GOLDEN

Submitted by ub on Sat, 11/05/2011 - 20:46

The annoying sounds of leaf-blowers on our streets and sidewalks, the thump of loud music coming from our community center, or the out of control screaming heard outside your low life neighbor's home may all be considered a fact of our suburban life to some, but many others have become mad as hell and don't necessarily want to listen to anymore of these and other UN-necessary sounds, which are often heard from dawn to dusk.

BANK TRANSFER DAY

Submitted by ub on Sat, 11/05/2011 - 19:36

Today was supposed to be the big bank revolt, when millions of dollars were going to be withdrawn from banks across the nation, but these actions failed to materialize locally.

City Island Images checked area financial institutions and we were told that there was no mass movement to close, or transfer accounts, in fact the bankers we spoke with reported the opposite. They spoke about opening new savings and checking accounts.
