AROUND THE TOWN: Fall back for a little rest

CROSSVILLE — If you feel sleepy and have over the past few months, it may be that hour you lost back in March when we switched over to Daylight Savings Time. Well, never fear…you will get that hour back this Saturday night as the nation “falls back” Sunday morning at 2 am. Change your clocks before you go to bed on Saturday evening and you will wake up more refreshed on Sunday. Daylight Savings Time began on March 10 and will end Sunday, Nov. 4.

America has had a love/hate relationship with the Daylight Savings Time since its inception back in 1918. It lasted one year before being repealed. It was later re-instated and since then has pretty much been the norm for the United States with Arizona, Hawaii and Indiana being the only exceptions. Not all countries participate in the time change either. Only 70 countries participate in moving the clocks each spring and fall. Proponents of DST say it has economic benefits for businesses and retailers with longer daylight hours but opponents differ and cite sleep, travel and timekeeping problems.

The reason for Daylight Savings Time is to increase the hours of daylight in the afternoon and decrease the daylight in the mornings. This is why clocks are moved forward in the spring and backwards in the fall.

So you have two choices: go to bed at regular time on Saturday night and get an extra hour or stay up an extra hour later than you normally do and you will still receive the same amount of sleep!

  • Gypsy Rose to visit Fair Park

    The Cumberland County Playhouse is currently performing the award-winning Broadway play “Gypsy.” A great American story set during the 1920s fading vaudeville circuit, "Gypsy" portrays the rise of famed burlesque performer and stage mother Gypsy Rose Lee as she journeys across the country with her mother and sister during a time when Vaudeville was dying and burlesque was born. The complex character of Rose could be described as bold and brassy, as she steamrolls everyone in her way to turn her daughters June and Louise into child stars.
