Daylight Savings Time

By Ken Lewis

Mr Bethel questioned how "We" lose 2 hours. Here's how. Read this 1983 article that took all Southeast Alaska (except Metlakatla ) out of the Pacific time zone. Then subtract another hour once this politician from a town with a true midnight sun kicks our once active families in the gnards again.

Pleasing politicians seems to be very important to those who don't want to fight. Then the next thing out of their mouth is, how much they care about the children. Children, put your headlamps on so the cars don't run you down.
