Daylight Saving Time ends on Sunday, November 1 at 2:00 a.m.

In the U.S., clocks change at 2:00 a.m. local time. In spring, clocks spring forward from 1:59 a.m. to 3:00 a.m. In fall, clocks fall back from 1:59 a.m. to 1:00 a.m. The phrase "Spring Forward, Fall Back" is used to help people remember how to reset their clocks.

Move your clocks back one hour at the resumption of Standard Time.

Contrary to popular belief, no federal rule mandates the observance of daylight saving time. Daylight Saving time and Time zones are regulated by the U.S. Department of Transportation.

‘Walnut Buying Period’ Announced in Sutter County
October 23, 2015

Sutter County Agricultural Commissioner Mark Quisenberry announced today the walnut buying period will begin Sunday, November 1, 2015, beginning a window period that will end April 30, 2016, pursuant to the County’s Walnut Theft Prevention ordinance. The walnut buying period is the declared conclusion of harvest of the Chandler variety of walnuts by the Agricultural Commissioner, after consultation with walnut growers, during which non-processing walnut buying operations within Sutter County may lawfully purchase and receive walnuts that have not been dried or processed.

The ordinance was established to deter thefts from commercial walnut growers by creating a time frame for walnut purchases and the use of documentation to identify the growers of walnuts.

City of Yuba City Amends Tobacco-Free Ordinance to Include the Prohibition of Electronic-Cigarettes
October 22, 2015

SUTTER COUNTY (October 25, 2015): Sutter County Public Health officials applaud the City of Yuba City for unanimously agreeing to amend the tobacco-free ordinance to include the prohibition of electronic-cigarettes at all City Parks and within 50 feet of any public entrance into any City owned or leased facility. The City of Yuba City will join 74 other municipalities within the State of California amending laws related to the prohibition of e-cigarettes from entryways and/or city owned/operated facilities. This action promotes the health and well-being of City of Yuba City employees and the communities they serve by decreasing risk of secondhand aerosol inhalation.

The California Department of Public Health recognizes that e-cigarettes are battery-operated devices, often designed to resemble cigarettes, which deliver a nicotine containing aerosol, not just water vapor. E-cigarettes heat e-liquid that generally contains nicotine, flavorings, additives, and propylene glycol. The aerosol has been found to contain toxic chemicals like formaldehyde, lead, nickel, and acetaldehyde all of which are found on California’s Proposition 65 list of chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects, and other reproductive harm. Overall, research confirms that e- cigarettes are not emission-free and their pollutants could be of health concern for both users and those exposed to the secondhand aerosol.

Sutter County Health Officer Lou Anne Cummings, M.D. stated, “The City Council of Yuba City has taken an important step that demonstrates their commitment to supporting a healthy community for Yuba City“. For more information on adopting a voluntary policy for a tobacco and e-cigarette free property call Sutter County Public Health Tobacco Control staff at (530) 822-7215. Join Sutter County Public Health in congratulating City of Yuba City in their commitment to “Create a Healthier Sutter.”

Sutter County Ahead of Schedule in Linking to Statewide Voter Database
October 19, 2015

Sutter County’s Election Department today linked live to a new statewide voter registration database that will make it more efficient to register voters and manage the voter rolls.

Sutter County Clerk-Recorder Donna Johnston announced the Elections Department went live this morning with a direct link to the California Secretary of State’s Office, one month ahead of schedule. Sutter County is among seven counties that went live today, and is one of just 19 linked to the statewide database.

“We’ve been working hard,” she said. “That’s what made early implementation possible.” All 58 counties are expected to go live prior to June of 2016, when the database, known as VoteCal, becomes the system of record.

VoteCal is a single, uniform, centralized voter registration database connecting all 58 counties together with the Secretary of State.

Under this new system, new registration applications and changes will be processed in real time. Checks for duplicate registrations, whether the applicant is a felon or deceased, will be conducted immediately.

The existence and efficiency of the database will ultimately allow people to register to vote on the day of the election.

Each county elections office will have access to the database for entering and retrieving information.

The system is the result of the Help America Vote Act, passed by Congress and signed into law in 2002, as the result of concerns expressed after the Presidential election in 2000.

The Secretary of State’s Office will perform list maintenance on a regular basis. It will also coordinate the computerized list with the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation regarding felony status, and the California Department of Public Health regarding death records.

An application for voter registration must include the applicant's current and valid driver license number or the last four digits of the applicant's social security number. If the applicant has not been issued a current and valid driver license number or social security number, the State will assign the applicant a unique identifying number for voter registration purposes.
