Tallahassee, turn back the clock on daylight saving time decision | Letters

The state Senate approved a bill Tuesday to let Florida remain on Daylight Saving Time year round and now it’s headed to Gov. Rick Scott.

I agree wholeheartedly with letter to the editor writer Ted Bazer and others who are against keeping daylight saving time all year round. Not only would it affect the TV schedule, but it also would affect everyone who has to be at work at 7 a.m., which is most hospital employees and doctors offices.

I hate having to get up, even now, and it is still dark outside. It doesn’t make you feel good. Not many seniors are able to sleep late anymore, and when we get up we like to see a bright, sunny day.

Don’t forget, the young children who go to school at 6:30 a.m. It is scary and unsafe enough for them to have to do this these few months, but to have to do it all winter long is asking too much. Even for seniors, early birds would feel like it was just lunchtime.

I am 100 percent against this and I hope that others agree with me and maybe we can convince the politicians in Tallahassee that this is not a good idea all around.
