Letters To The Editor: Time For Year-Round Daylight Saving Time

Posted By on March 12, 2017



Fiction is wonderful. Before television, there were storytellers who shared their thoughts and entertained as they expressed a meaningful message. They were creative and made everyone want to be a part of a wonderful story. I will attempt to share how my Grandfather might have told this story below:

What a wonderful headline. “Nevada Okays Year-Round Daylight Saving Time” Less traffic accidents, less heart attacks, and our children and dogs will know when to eat! Government regulations to modify the hours in a day and “time of the year,” is no more.

Nevada leads the way for others to follow. The Battle Born State shows its independence and freedom by demonstrating this is a state giving its citizens what they want. Our Congress and Legislators have taken the first steps for health and safety. They set a precedent for our children that government can be helpful and trusted.

Twelve other States had Senate bills to change this silly time law. Our politicians showed Government can serve the people. Nevada is the first to join with Arizona and retain Daylight savings time.

In conclusion, the people all thanked the lawmakers that supported this effort. Some of the most influential citizens said they might be worth re-electing these lawmakers, just for this one accomplishment.

A fun story, now if it were only true.
