Florida poised to remain on Daylight Savings Time year around

  • Remember to set your clocks an hour forward when you go to bed Saturday night

Manitobans will be putting their clocks ahead one hour this weekend with daylight saving time set to begin in the province. The clocks roll forward on Sunday at 2 a.m. due to Daylight savings time.

Standard Time will soon give way to Daylight Saving Time. In Florida, lawmakers have approved a bill to keep DST year-round. Greg Steube said the tourism industry would benefit from the change while the only opposition he's heard is from those with concerns Florida would no longer be in sync with other states, the website reported. That's when you will get your lost hour of sleep back from the spring time change.

Benjamin Franklin ("early to bed and early to rise") endorsed time change to save money on candles, and troops in World War I followed suit to save on coal.

An Oscar for Kobe Bryant, and a Jab at a Critic
Vanessa and Bryant are parents to 15-year-old Natalia, 11-year-old Gianna, and 1-year-old Bianka. More than 16,000 people have signed a petition online to take back Kobe Bryant's Oscar.

The biggest issue presented by working in multiple time zones is ensuring that customers understand the difference and how it affects the delivery time for their goods, Ward said. People tend to spend more time outside in the evenings during Daylight Saving Time, which reduces the need to use electricity in the home.

The bill is headed to Gov. Rick Scott's desk. Federal law now allows states to remain on Standard time, but does not allow states to remain on Daylight Savings Time.
