The cooler nights are a sign of things to come as frigid winter weather is just around the corner. With the Farmers Almanac predicting especially chilly temperatures this winter, local residents will be wise to have a warm coat.For those who don’t, a collection effort is currently under way for the fourth annual Coats for the Cold. Collections began Thursday and will continue until Oct. 20 at Kroger and Beersheba Towers.Organizer Jennifer Barrickman says she gave away over 300 coats last year and the program has been a success since its inception.“When I started this, I really didn’t think we’d get many donations but there were 200 coats donated my first year,” said Barrickman.
