Time to "Fall Back"

Don’t forget to “fall back” this weekend.

Daylight Saving Time ends early Sunday morning, providing an extra hour of sleep for many of us.

You’re advised to turn clocks back one hour before turning in Saturday night.

Smart phones and some modern clocks automatically make the change to Standard Time.

We’ll lose the hour in March, when Daylight Saving Time returns.

A new Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research poll finds that 4 in 10 Americans would like to see their clocks stay on standard time year-round, while about 3 in 10 prefer to stay on daylight saving time.

Authorities say the time change is a good reminder to replace batteries in smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors.
