Commentary: One state, one time zone or no change

About: Great Time Controversy: Entire State should have same time

By Shamarie Claiborne

Kentucky is one of seven states that has divided time zone areas within them. Along with us, there are Tennessee, Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota, North Dakota, Idaho.

There is one situation stranger than ours, I thought, which is that the whole state of Arizona runs half the year on Pacific Standard Time (summer) and half the year on Mountain Standard Time; but at least the whole state does the change dance together.

Personally, I would not want to change our time unless the whole state went to one time.

And I won't even discuss Daylight Saving Time. That is my real soap box issue!
