Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?

Francesville, Ind. (AP) -- One pastor is concerned that confused church members will be on three different times after this weekend's time change in Pulaski County, Indiana.

That's because the farming area 90 miles north of Indianapolis is springing ahead not one, but two hours. It's switching from Standard to Daylight Time, and moving from the Central to the Eastern Time Zone.

The Federal Transportation Department assigned the county to Central Time when all of Indiana started observing Daylight Time two years ago. But it gave in after locals said they didn't like being out of sync with their friends to the east, and the county's biggest school district decided to hold classes on Eastern Time.

There were even different times on the courthouse and bank clocks.

A lot of folks just avoided confusion by calling ahead and asking whether they were going somewhere on "fast" or "slow" time.
