In 1918, in an attempt to preserve precious daylight, President Woodrow Wilson signed Daylight Saving Time into law. Through the years politicians have tinkered with the law, even President Bush extended the length of Daylight Saving Time in 2005. The law isnt mandatory to all states. Some states like Arizona and Hawaii use Standard time all year long. But here in the Ark-La-Miss we all spring forward and fall back. "I love getting off in the afternoons when its still daytime. You have time to do things when you get home before it gets dark," Paula Porter, an Ark-La-Miss resident said. Christy Powell says she likes the daylight but sleep is what she loves most. Chrisy Powell, an Ark-La-Miss resident, said, "Its kind of funny going to work in the dark, its not enough sleep." In addition to saving daylight, the time change is designed to save money on energy costs because it was thought that Americans use less electricity when the sun is out. According to a 2006 study Daylight Saving Time actually cost households more money. One Ark-La-Miss residents electricity bills showed the same results: Daylight Saving Time was costing residents more. Fall and winter bills equaled $520. 90. Daylight Savings bill, for the resident, ran over eleven hundred dollars. So perhaps residents arent saving much money, but as Paula Porter said, the sunlight is worth it.
