Time change this weekend: Get ready to ‘fall back’ 1 hour as Daylight Saving Time ends

Daylight Saving Time ends at 2 a.m. Sunday, November 5.  The switch signals the start of dark afternoons.

Most computers and cell phones now change automatically, but you will still need to adjust your watch, microwave and most likely your car.  It is also a good time to replace the batteries in your smoke detectors.

Daylight Saving Time has been practiced off and on in the United States since 1918.  Daylight Saving Time starts the 2nd Sunday of March and ends the first Sunday of November.  Hawaii and Arizona do not observe Daylight Saving Time so no springing forward or falling back for them!  U.S. territories such as American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands do not make the change, either.

We will move the clocks again on March 11, 2018, springing forward an hour.

Our Buckeye Tree

So often throughout the year, but especially during the Buckeye football season, our thoughts turn to David Righter, who, along with his late father, Donald, founded The Righter Company on August 19, 1976.  Dave was a Buckeye fan through and through.  This Buckeye tree stands at the entrance to our home office and was planted to honor the life of and contributions and sacrifices made by Dave.

Righter to Restore Two Historic Covered Bridges in Wyandot County

The Righter Company is very excited about rehabilitating two historic covered bridges in Wyandot County.  The Swartz Covered Bridge was built in 1878, rehabilitated in 1998, and is a 98′ Howe Truss design. The Parker Covered Bridge was built in 1873, caught fire on May 17, 1991, was restored in 1993, and is a 162′ Howe Truss design.  Both bridges are over the Sandusky River and are posted to the National Register of Historic Places.  Mobilization has begun and the work is scheduled through the end of this year.  Upon completion, this will be the 56th and 57th covered bridge rehabilitation/repair by Righter!
