Fall time change: Set your clocks back one hour Saturday night

Kentucky Press News Service

Daylight Saving Time will end at 2am local time on Sunday. Kentuckians will get back the hour of sleep they lost during the spring time change in March.

When going to bed on Saturday night, adjust your clocks back one hour. For example, if going to bed at 11pm local time Saturday, turn your clocks to 10pm local time. That way, your clocks will be accurate when you awaken Sunday.

Since 2007, daylight saving time begins in most states on the second Sunday of March and ends in November on the first Sunday. Thursday, December 21 will be the shortest day of 2017. Daylight will continue to decrease until that day. After that, days will get slightly longer - about two more minutes of daylight each day.

Ed Heustis writes suggestions for Needs Assessment

Ed Heustis writes:
Improve infrastructure to attract new business and improve the local economy. Make improvements focused on the type of business that would do well in this area. Use what is already in place and can be improved to determine what business the area needs/has. Work with locals - Lindsey Wilson, etc. to determine what would make the area better for both citizens and community.

I am not from Adair County, but I sense a strong feeling of community pride and potential every time I visit. - Ed Heustis
