“If you have the opportunity, invest in a really good winter coat,” Dr. Teachman said. “Look into a little heater to put on a

Mazes of maize: Get lost in a corn field this fall

(WPRI) ─ Nothing says “fall” like venturing through rows and rows of corn.

Corn mazes have become a fall favorite in Southern New England. But this year, the coronavirus pandemic has made it difficult for some local farms to make their mazes safe for guests.
