Our Changing Times

Don’t forget to set your clocks back one hour on Saturday night before retiring to bed.


November 2, 2014 marks the end of Daylight Savings for 2014. President Lyndon Johnson signed the Uniform Time Act into law in 1966. Currently in the United States of America, only Hawaii and Arizona do not observe the annual ritual of changing our clocks ahead one hour in spring and back one hour in fall. There are other states that have recently introduced bills that would also allow their states follow Arizona and Hawaii’s example but those outcomes are still undetermined. Among the reasons listed for discontinuing this practice are safety for children being out and about while it is still so dark in the mornings, the simple fact that people don’t like changing their clocks twice a year, and that the original intended effect of saving energy by changing the clocks is so minimal that it is not worth it.
