Many Southeast Floridians have a lot of confusion about Daylight Savings Time. Daylight Saving Time officially ended at 2 a.m. on Sunday, November the 6, 2022. For decades, shifting the clocks during the months that have the most sunlight was promoted to save energy.

Millions of Americans want to abandon daylight saving time each year. It disrupts our circadian rhythms and creates confusion. More than a third of U.S. states now back a permanent shift to daylight saving time.

The biggest boating safety tip for Palm Beach County boaters is always wearing a lifejacket! Most people who drown in a boating accident could swim! Never rely on your ability to swim to keep you safe in a boating-related emergency! It is advised that you wear a United States Coast Guard-approved flotation device.

The month of April has been designated as “Earth Month.” To commemorate Mother Earth, it is a terrific opportunity to share some facts about our beautiful planet.

Earth weighs about 13,170,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 pounds (or 5,974,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 kilograms).

During the holiday season, many are awaiting package deliveries. Who does not hate missing a package delivery? Palm Beach County, as well as all around the United States, has been faced with a new scam – the missed package swindle. Cybercriminals know this.

So, they have created a ruse that involves leaving a note on your door claiming to have a package for you that could not be delivered. The note contains a phone number to call to reschedule the delivery. If you call the number, you will be greeted with questions related to your personal identity that can later be used to commit fraud.

If you receive a missed delivery note, look at it closely for any mistakes or other signs that it could be fraudulent. It is also a good idea to check your…
