Daylight Savings Time starts early Sunday morning
space
Many across the United States, including those in the Antigo and Langlade County area, will be moving clocks ahead sometime Saturday night as the spring and summer season across Wisconsin’s northwoods marks its unofficial start.

And they’re celebrating the event in a special way at Schroeder’s, giving customers who spend $75 or more a free watch today through Sunday. The glitzy timepieces were on display Thursday afternoon.

While critics have cited a range of problems, including travel disruptions, billing records, medical devices and sleep patterns, it brings sunlight and the opportunity for outdoor enjoyment as moderate temperatures become more common.

While the history of clock adjustments has a very long history, modern daylight time dates to 1895 and the movement moved ahead nicely into the early decades of the 1900s.

Farmers tend to oppose it because it throws off the schedule of the livestock and it appears the energy savings benefits are inconclusive and so are takes of inducing heart attacks and potential for disruption of morning activities.

There is common agreement that the change in the spring confers so many advantages that the criticisms generally fade away.

While it still will be winter, the sun will be blazing one hour later into the evening.
