"The times they are a changin'"


Some news from the cornfields of Indiana…Our great state has always been on the same time year round, i.e. we are not on daylight savings time and hence have never had to change our clocks. After an intense debate our state finally decides to switch to daylight savings. (I know, I know, it shouldn’t be a big deal. But this is Indiana and we really don’t have a lot to fight about. So, when something comes along we need to take advantage of it!) But the fight didn’t end with daylight savings time. Oh, no. We then had to have a good ‘ole go ‘round about Eastern or Central time zone. (Indiana is right smack dab in the middle of the time zones.) And after finally deciding on the Eastern time zone there was great decent amongst Hoosiers who wanted Central time. Ok, so here’s the funny thing: We’ve still got a bunch of counties that refuse to switch! So, there will be small pockets of counties in Indiana who will be on central time while the whole rest of the state is on Eastern time!
