Updated:

Ideally, all homeowners should have their furnaces checked each year, preferably in the fall before cold weather arrives. If you're a little tardy this year, don't fret. The old better-late-than-never approach will do just fine. Dominic Peters of Peters Heating and Air Conditioning, 4520 Broadway, said overdue calls about furnace checkups are nothing new. Some are precautionary, from folks who were simply a little late setting up an annual inspection.

  • Eighinger: 'Silver Bells' rings in favorite Christmas songs

    Eighinger: 'Silver Bells' rings in favorite Christmas songs

    Thursday, December 18 2014 9:40 AM EST2014-12-18 14:40:51 GMT
    On the way to work this morning, I found myself enjoying some of the Christmas offerings on the radio, which got me thinking about the holiday songs I enjoy the most. In most cases, I prefer modern-day Christmas music although I still appreciate the classics. However, "appreciate" and "prefer" are not necessarily the same thing.
