So we are back on Central Standard Time.

While some people will enjoy getting an extra hour's sleep, other people believe that Daylight Savings Time has long since served its purpose. They want to remain on Central Standard Time all year-round.

Parents of small children are especially concerned about this. It's tough trying to convince a small child that they're still going to bed at the same time every night. Then try and get them up in the morning.

Older kids don't like having to go to bed while it's still light out. In the fall and winter, they get to stay up until way past dark.

The only place in the United States that doesn't observe this is Arizona. Some people say it's time to follow their example and abolish Daylight Savings Time.
