“In the end of the day, our businesses and commerce interests here in Dubois County clearly were interested in remaining with the time that the majority of Indiana observes, and that's really the driver in that equation”

Five southwestern Indiana counties that switched to Central time last year would be allowed to move back to Eastern time this fall under a proposal announced Tuesday by the U.S. Department of Transportation. via Fort Wayne News Sentinel

Indiana should change to eastern time. I work in a school district that has students and parents on different time. This is really hard for both the student and parent. Parents have to be at work an hour earlier because they are on estern time thus leaving their chindren at home by themselves for a period of time before they get on the bus. It is also hard on everyone involved with school related sports. Most of the schools that we compete with are on eastern time. One school is only a ten minute drive from ours. Central time just causes a lot of confusion. Change to Eastern!

I could care less which time zone we are in but the whole state should be on ONE time. There would be much less confusion!
