DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME BEGINS SATURDAY

Area residents will lose an hour of sleep this weekend as Daylight Saving Time begins.  Clocks move an hour ahead Saturday night.  In 2007 Congress adopted changes moving the beginning of Daylight Saving Time to March instead of April to save energy.  Daylight Saving Time was standardized by Congress in 1966 as part of the Uniform Time Act, establishing a standard for the dates for adding and subtracting an hour.  This is also the perfect time to change the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.  Again set your clocks forward one hour before going to bed Saturday night.
