News for the Sept. 5 column is due Sept. 21.

The telltale signs of the coming changes are all around us. Christmas in July had a few of us singing our favorite seasonal songs even on blazing hot days. On television a few weeks ago, a group of people dressed as Santa held a parade in Copenhagen, greeting crowds along the streets.

Here, school openings are on the childrens' minds. My daughter, who lives in the southwest, started teaching this week. My grandsons in the south are scheduled to begin classes next week.

In this area, my great-granddaugher Nicole still has about 20 days of freedom to enjoy.

This tropical summer has many of us wondering what type of autumn Mother Nature has in store for us.

Any predictions?
