Online auction ends 6 p.m., October 22

CHILLY START--If you were lucky, your Saturday morning was not quite as cold as ours in West Valley as it was white with frost when I got up. I guess it's time to winterize even if these sunny daytime hours would lull us into a false sense of...

Lots of donation opportunities ahead
