Today is Columbus Day and for many it's a holiday and that means some businesses will be closed including banks, schools, the post office, courts, libraries (although some will be open), and government offices will be closed. UPS and FedEx will remain open. Also in Oregon state offices will be open, like DMV and some county and city offices. Make sure you check your local offices before heading out.
Joke of the day........... What do you get when you cross an elephant with a rhino?
