I understand your point, but "winter" would be standard time. It is "summer' where we turn our clocks ahead to get more daylight (DST) in the PM. If it was for kids in school, we could stay on "winter" standard time all year.
A true farmer gets up so early and doesn't need a government to tell them when the sun comes up, so how in the hell would it affect 'em? That is just plain stupid... Did Wikipedia start this?
Saving electricity doesn't relate to growing corn...
The state of Arizona requested and was granted an exemption to DST, but the Indian reservations in Arizona do participate (because the reservations span multiple states).
I wish every State felt that way...
Either way, have you ever needed help to decide when the sun came up?
George Bush, 43, extended DST (now starts earlier and ends later), to save energy by having more useful hours of sunlight. I agree. Why not just pick one or the other for the whole year.
I thought it was a state law. Doesn't Arizona ignore DST and just use the same clock all year?
Rufus, you are correct. (http://www.abc15.com/dpp/news/state/why-arizonans dont-observe-daylight-saving-time) Arizona does not follow DST, they requested an exemption because of the heat (but the Indian reservations do follow DST).
