DAYLIGHT-SAVINGS TIME IS A WASTE

Dr. John K. Hayes (Forum, April 4) is absolutely right. How can we as a state profess to be pro-family, pro-education, pro-work and pro-nature while tolerating daylight-saving time? It's hard on young families. It's worse for school-age children who yawn their way through classes or act as though summer vacation has begun.

Groggy and grouchy employees do nothing for our work ethic or for a friendly image. Many businesses today already have different hours for holiday periods and could easily institute summer hours or flextime (which would also help alleviate gridlock).When we get to those long sweltering evenings of late July, remember, the sweet summer twilight would arrive an hour sooner if we stopped lying about the time.
