Daylight saving time begins Sunday

This is the weekend that we lose an hour.

Most of us will set our clocks 60 minutes ahead before heading to bed tonight, but daylight saving time officially starts Sunday at 2 a.m.

You lose an hour of sleep, but daylight saving time arrives with the promise of many months ahead with an extra hour of evening light.

It's also a good time to put new batteries in warning devices such as smoke detectors and hazard warning radios.

The time change is not observed by Hawaii, most of Arizona, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Guam and the Northern Marianas.

Daylight saving time ends Nov. 2.

I've never seen the significance of it and it's just plain dumb. I salute Arizona for not complying with DST. Leave the time alone. Only thing it does is make you lose an hour of sleep so you walk around in a fog for the next week or so much like that of jet lag. I could care less if politicians can play golf until 10 p.m.
