Five Things to Know Today: January 3
Ok, the holiday is now officially over...
1. Weather: ...but winter is certainly settling in. The National Weather Service forecast for our area says we could see some snow showers today. Otherwise, It'll be partly sunny and blustery with a high near a chilly 28 degrees. Brr.

3. Quote of the Day: "Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home." -- Edith Sitwell
4. Coming Up: Is Domino's Pizza doing something different? Alyssa Warner sure thinks so.
5. Today in History: On this day in 1521, Pope Leo X issued the papal bull Decet Romanum Pontificem, which excommunicated Martin Luther from the Catholic Church. Luther, the chief catalyst of Protestantism, was a professor of biblical interpretation at the University of Wittenberg in Germany when he drew up his 95 theses condemning the Catholic Church for its corrupt practice of selling indulgences, or the forgiveness of sins. He followed up the revolutionary work with equally controversial and groundbreaking theological works, and his fiery words set off religious reformers all across Europe.
