Indiana's time zone melee continues....

Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels sent a letter Monday to the U.S. Dept. of
Transportation supporting time reversal petitions filed by Pulaski
County and (jointly) by Daviess, Dubois, Knox, Martin and Pike
counties, asking to move back from central to eastern time.  Starke
and Perry counties have not petitioned to return to eastern time.

"Time reversal petitions"....  That has a nice ring to it.

Dan Shaw reported yesterday that Pulaski county is currently in
disarray.  Two sample quotes from his article indicate how bad it is:

   "When you go to Francesville, the grocery store and the bank runs
   on Eastern time," [Mike Tiede, the president of the Pulaski County
   commissioners] said. "Medaryville runs on Central time. In Winamac,
   they run mostly on Eastern. It's just a zoo."...

   West Central School Corp., which serves slightly fewer than 1,000
   students in Pulaski and Jasper counties, has remained on Eastern time
   and has taken to announcing events in both times. Some say the
   district should compromise and set its clocks back by a half an hour.
