It’s Surf City’s new royalty

KATIE CHRISMAN (center) is the new Miss Huntington Beach. Runners-up are Rosalyn Brown Biyeu and Coral Gangitano. Event was at Central Library Theater.

A reminder to you regardless of which city you live in … daylight savings ends this weekend and standard time resumes.

To put it another way, it’s spring forward and fall back. On Sunday you should set your clock back at 2 a.m. to 1 a.m. (assuming you’re awake that that time). Or you can just change your timepieces before you go to bed on Saturday night.

You might also want to adjust your automated sprinkler system as well.
