Halloween is over, and now's when we all get settled in for a long winter. Oh the joy.

Stores already have their Christmas decorations and merchandise out. Only 52 shopping days left.

■ Battle the chill in the air with a warm bowl of soup.

The Yampa Valley Pregnancy Center hosts its annual chili supper and silent auction at 6 p.m. Saturday at The Center of Craig, 601 Yampa Ave.

And the price is right. It costs $6 per person, $10 per couple or $20 for a family of four, plus $2 for each additional person. Just pay at the door.
