Russell County studies going to fast time

Russell County Judge Executive Randy Marcum said county government is investigating the possibility of switching Russell County from central (slow) time to the eastern (fast time) zone.

He made the point that many Russell County citizens who drive out of county to work, airport, most trucks coming into the county with supplies for stores and heading for medical appointments are mostly going into eastern time zones.

Their next door neighbor Wayne County started the process in 1999 and accomplished it in 2000. Should Adair County also be looking into the question of whether or not to stay with central time?
