  • Autumn doesn’t officially start until Sept. 23, but already the leaves on the trees are beginning to fall and hot summer nights have given way to cool evenings. Halloween is right around the corner and soon little ghosts and goblins will hit the streets seeking treats to satisfy their craving for sweets. The Fuller Lodge Art Center is also getting into the spirit with their “Muerto” show opening set for 5-7 p.m. Friday.

  • NEW YORK (AP) — R.I.P. to R.E.M.

    The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame group announced on its website Wednesday that it has "decided to call it a day as a band."

    "A wise man once said — 'the skill in attending a party is knowing when it's time to leave.' We built something extraordinary together. We did this thing. And now we're going to walk away from it," frontman Michael Stipe said in a statement on the website.

    "I hope our fans realize this wasn't an easy decision; but all things must end, and we wanted to do it right, to do it our way."
