State Rep. Courtney Combs, R-Hamilton, says daylight savings time is a “World War 1 era antique” – and he wants to end it in Ohio.

He’s introducing a bill today to keep the state on standard time throughout the year. This weekend is when we’re supposed to set our clocks ahead an hour (and lose that hour of sleep.)

“Nowadays, all it does is inconvenience people twice a year,” said Combs, who ran for Butler County Commissioner this year. (Unofficial election results from Tuesday show him trailing T. C. Rogers in that race by 24 votes, with provisional ballots and some mailed absentee ballots yet to be counted. )

I personally like it, and think we are better served with it. I do however think that it should have been left alone with Daylight Savings Time starting on the first Sunday in April, and ending on the last Sunday in October which started in 1986.

The only problem I ever experience with DST is the redneck neighbors that I have that show their asses outside, and are very annoying!

It's never really bothered me, except for the whole "spring forward" when I have to be to work early....losing that hour of sleep is rough sometimes.

Yep, the police were just over at my redneck neighbors house. True about the saying scum find scum to hang out with. House full of idiots who can't get along eventually. These people need to go back to where they were.... lets say 20 years ago.
