By Joseph Deinlein | The Daily Item

Charles F. Kettering, noted engineer who invented the electric car starter, once said, "My interest is in the future because I am going to spend the rest of my life there."

Here are five things coming up to help you plan how you'll spend your life this week.

1. Former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum will be joined by Congressional hopeful Tom Marino in a visit the Republican victory centers in Lewisburg and Selinsgrove.

At 3 p.m., the politicians are to visit the Lewisburg center, 216 Market St. They'll make their way to the Selinsgrove center, 103 S. Market St., for a 5 p.m. visit.

2. Don't forget to vote on Tuesday. The polls open at 7 a.m. and close at 8 p.m.
