Pulaski County rebels against the Department of Transportation

We're faced with the ugly possibility that clocks will be set two
different ways in Pulaski County; offices under federal control (such as
post offices) may follow U. S. Department of Transportation regulations.
Particularly touchy: any federal court offices located in Pulaski

According to an AP article
officials in Pulaski County, Indiana, have changed their minds, and want
to undo the time-zone change that they asked the feds to grant a few
months ago.  "While it's official, it's unofficial: We will not set our
clocks with Chicago; we'll set our clocks with Indianapolis,"
said Pulaski County Council President Sam Frain.

Even if they follow through with this threat, we won't have to create a
new zone; Pulaski County residents can continue to use the
America/Indiana/Indianapolis zone.  However, we should adjust zone.tab
and the comments to make it clear that Pulaski County is still using
Indianapolis time.
