Not on this end of time zone</a></h4> <h5><span class="updated" title="2014-07-13T12:59:20.633-06:00">Updated Jul 13, 2014 12:59PM MDT</span></h5> <div class ="entry-content">I think daylight saving time is useful, but it depends on where you live in your time zone (i.e. at the east end or the west end). Most of the population in Utah lives at the west end quite close to the Pacific time zone. This results in long daylight in the summer naturally (100 miles west, and it’s an hour earlier).

It feels to him more like a waste than a time savings. Gregory wants Utah to switch to Mountain Standard Time year-round without changing the clocks in the spring and fall for what he mocks as “daylight stupid time.” He, along with about 50 other Wasatch Front residents, participated in a public forum Thursday staged by the Governor’s Offi...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

The 2011 move to impose permanent “summer time” in 2011 was one of the most memorable and least popular initiatives of Dmitry Medvedev’s presidency. It forced tens of millions to straggle to their jobs in pitch darkness during the winter months.
