    Spring Forward HITs Sunday March 8, 2020

    William F. Shughart II, Opinion contributor

    USA TODAY OpinionMarch 6, 2020
    Congress should take action


    Legislation has been introduced in several states, including Utah, California and Florida, to stop the craziness by adopting DST year-round. Because such policies are inconsistent with the Uniform Time Act of 1966 (15 U.S.C. §§ 260-64), congressional approval is required, however. While it’s permissible to adopt “standard” time year-round, as Arizona, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and U.S. Pacific Territories have done, extending Daylight Saving Time beyond the current eight months requires an act of Congress.

    Given both the nuisance factor and the significant costs imposed on all of us by being forced to change our clocks twice a year, I can’t understand why Congress hasn’t done away with the irrational time-change regime.

    I’d like to see my fellow citizens reenact the last scene of the movie “Frankenstein”, carrying torches and pitchforks around the halls of Congress demanding that we be allowed to set our watches and clocks once and for all on DST or standard time, ending the oppression of government timekeeping.

                All this tornado has done for me is to get me wanting to move again. I need a nice town that's drying up and dying off to move to. It's very "up and coming" here..and I don't like that. I love the South. I hate gentrification. I'm highly self-sufficient and I can work just as well anywhere that has a post office, electricity, and a good internet connection...and I need 6 more years of a decent public school system. Where should I be looking ?

                  I live in the great town of Cushing, Oklahoma. Yes, we are in tornado alley, but for some reason(we think it is the Cimarron River) the tornados always go North or South of us. We are the oil capital of the world so we are full of oilfield workers that come and go. It is a town of about 9000. I have lived here all my life and we have amazing schools. Because of the extra funding from the oilfield we have a lot more in our schools than other schools in the state. A lot of Oklahoma teachers went on strike a couple of years ago because of being underpaid and not enough funding, but our schools didn't because the teachers are paid more and every child has things like computers and other things they need to flourish. Rent is a little high because of the oilfield, but if you want to buy their are some great homes for sale and taxes are reasonable. We are half way between Tulsa and Oklahoma City so it makes it convenient to go to both. We are also only 30 minutes from Stillwater and Oklahoma State University. You should look us up. I love living here and raising my kids here.

                  Fisherman I'd say come to Iowa, but you would hate the winter and the few areas that have really good schools that aren't huge districts are becoming high cost. The town I used to live in (Nevada - pronounced Nev-AH-da) had an awesome school district, nice small town and felt very much like home to me - It's only 10 miles outside of a college town so as time has gone along it is almost as expensive as living in that town directly. Plus we are in a tornado area too. I lived in eastern New Mexico as a child and my best friend's grandmother lived in the north eastern part of the state in a tiny town, if memory serves somewhere around Des Moines. It was nice up there. Her grandma was the Postmaster, the weather radio lady and something else - yes that small of a town. This might be a good opportunity to take a road trip for a bit this summer and scope out some places. There's a lot of nothingness in Nebraska and Kansas. There's a few towns/counties in Kansas that will offer you free land if you build a house within a specified amount of time. I remember seeing that once coming back from Colorado one year. Again though, tornado alley. Might need to look into the desert at this rate. There is no perfect place but I think that would be cool if we could have a little community of us somewhere. mominavan I sure miss the smell of oil fields!
