Well, of course for our farmers! They need the maximum amount of daylight to be able to cultivate their crops. I mean, our economy is still based primarily on agriculture, right? And we haven't made technological advances with huge combines with lights that light up the fileds of corn and soy like they are used car lots.

A FEW small counties in Western Indiana will stay with the time, and stay with the Central Time Zone (Chicago) in the Fall. I am fairly new to Indiana and I have liked it so far. BUT, this whole time thing has taught me a lot about Hoosiers. I have a feeling they really have a tough time acepting change. Residents in 48 other states do not have a problem with figuring out how to change their clocks and adjusting twice a year. But Hoosiers needed radio programs, massive newspaper articles and TV news stories all to tell them how to adjust to this minor time change.

I have no clue yet.

I am just not sure if residents of Indiana are called Indianians, or Indiana-nites or Indianageans. Hoosier is easier.

My dad was joking that Hoosiers are having trouble accepting DST because they're getting it confused with the International Date Line and think that they have to change their calenders

hoosiers...um...yeah there is a story behind that, but I don't remember what it is. I just sort of accept it as the way things are.

NAPTOWN BITCHES!

Always hoosiers
... if you call someone an Indianaian or Indianaite or whatever they'll just give you a funny look.. it's just not right.

Nobody knows where hoosier comes from, but Wikipedia has a good article if you want to know all the theories. I always heard in school that it came from "who's ear?" when people found ears on the floor at the end of bar fights.

Though if you're from St. Louis, it means redneck.

Anyway, the reason they're having problems with it is that they've just never done it before. It's normal for everyone else because they've been doing it since they were babies... for us it's strange and unusual. I had some trouble with it when I moved here and I'm a hip young person. God knows how older people who can't even set their VCRs are handling it.
