Spring ahead Sunday

Residents weigh in on time change.

Kindergarten teacher Janet Evans hates Daylight Saving Time.

“I lose sleep and have to change all my clocks,” she grumbled last week.

Colleague Suzanne Neels has a different opinion.

Neels said she likes the extra hour of sunlight so her kids can play outside longer.

Phil Miller, a registered nurse at Gothenburg Memorial Hospital, doesn’t like the twice yearly time change.

“I’d like to just leave it at the regular time,” Miller said.

Whether you like or dislike daylight time, a 2005 federal law specifies that daylight time applies from 2 a.m. on the second Sunday of March until 2 a.m. on the first Sunday of November in areas that do not specifically exempt themselves.
