time zone It makes sense for Indiana to be in Central Time Zone

The Central Time Zone makes sense for Indiana

Bravo to Dr. John Gaski (“Being on Central time could have prevented fatal accidents,” Nov. 4 People’s Forum). He has succinctly articulated exactly what I have been trying to say for years.

I have seen no evidence whatsoever that daylight-saving time has benefited anyone except golfers who want to play late in the evening. It would be much better to have daylight in the morning.

Elkhart is only 100 miles from Chicago, but it is 600 miles from Washington, D.C., and New York City; therefore, it would make sense (at least to some people) for Indiana to be in the Central Time Zone, whether we use daylight-saving time or not.
