Daily Bread for 9.4.15 – 2017

Good morning, Whitewater.

Friday in town will be partly cloudy with a high of eighty-four. Sunrise is 6:23 and sunset 7:23, for 13 hours of daytime. The moon is a waning gibbous with 60% of its visible disk illuminated.

There will be public meetings in the city today on Tax Incremental Districts 5 and 6, at 10:30 AM and 1:30 PM, respectively.

On this day in 476, the western Roman Empire falls:

Romulus Augustus, the last emperor of the Western Roman Empire, is deposed by Odoacer, a German barbarian who proclaims himself king of Italy.

Odoacer was a mercenary leader in the Roman imperial army when he launched his mutiny against the young emperor. At Piacenza, he defeated Roman General Orestes, the emperor’s powerful father, and then took Ravenna, the capital of the Western empire since 402. Although Roman rule continued in the East, the crowning of Odoacer marked the end of the original Roman Empire, which centered in Italy.

Friday brings with final game in Puzzability‘s Sound Bites series:

This Week’s Game — August 31-September 4
Sound Bites
We’ve gone to pieces over this one. For each day this week, we started with two rhyming one-syllable words. The day’s clue gives, for each of those words, a shorter word that appears as a chunk within it. Please note that for the two words to rhyme, every sound from the first vowel sound onward must be identical, as the “-ime” sound in the example below.
Climb, thyme
What to Submit:
Submit both words, in the same order as the clue (as “Climb, thyme” in the example) for your answer.
Friday, September 4
