Letter: Daylight savings time is an annual debate

Posted

I read Greg Romberg’s article in the March 24 edition of the Canyon Courier with a great deal of amusement, noting that this has been an annual debate during all of my considerable years. In 1962, I worked for the State of Colorado covering the thirteen north-eastern counties, or about 1/4 of the state. The State government generously furnished me a Studebaker Lark as a vehicle. In those days, a radio in your state car was a luxury that the powers to be thought the citizenry wouldn’t tolerate. Since those many miles required that I was on the road nearly daily until the late hours of the night, I bought my own am radio for company on the lonely roads. There was very little to listen to besides late night talk radio where people would call into the station to discuss their opinions about various happenings. Since it was about this time of year, a lady called in to say “she did not want daylight savings time since her lawn was burning up now and could not stand another hour of daylight.”
