Creeping Fast Time: Once only Ashland had Eastern time
About: Great Time Controversy Entire state should have same time
By Martha Berry
It hasn't been too many years ago that the whole state was on Central time, with the exception of Ashland that was on Eastern.
Then the creeping time adjusters moved it to take in Lexington and then eventually, Louisville and that is where we get into the act.
I live in Eastern time and much prefer Central, even Central Standard time.
As far as I am concerned, that is sun time. Watch your shadow at various times of the day.
I learned to dislike Eastern time when I had to put my children to bed while the sun was high in the sky. And, of course, they got up too early, while it was still dark.
And just to keep the record straight, I move between the two time zones often, what with family and appointments in the Central time zone and find it no problem.
