Daylight Savings Time set to start three weeks sooner than years past
Due to legislation passed by Congress in 2005, Daylight Savings Time will begin three weeks earlier than it did in previous years, when it started on the first weekend in April.
This year, the change will occur on the morning of March 11. Prior to retiring to bed on March 10, residents of the Castle Valley are encouraged to set their clocks ahead one hour.
Computer owners should be mindful to make sure their machines are fully updated. Most newer personal computers which have been fully updated are expected to handle the time change without any problem.
