Why CM uses time zones in Events

2013-08-06 - 17165 Liberty Road, Columbia, KY - Photo by Ed Waggener. Folks in The Jackson Purchase of Texarkana may never have to think about what time zone they are in, but here in the border counties of Kentucky, we do. That's by almost all times listed in Events carry CT/ET times so minds can be put to much better use than forever mentally calculating what time zone applies; whether Taylor County is in the Eastern time zone, as it is, or wondering why, Taylor County being west of Clinton in the Central Time zone, it is where it is. In the Village of Pellyton they use "Fast Time" and "Slow Time" to designate. There, with the the Eastern Time zone just minutes away on northeast bound roads, time is a big concern. Though traveling southwest, they go 1,444 miles to El Paso and still be in the Central Time zone.
