A perspective from Oregon’s mid-Willamette Valley

Repealing time change may save lives

Written March 6th, 2019 by Hasso Hering

For the umpteenth time, we’re losing an hour with the time change come Sunday. And right on cue ODOT is warning us of the potentially fatal effects of drowsy driving that the change might cause.


Ray of hope: Three bills on DST

Written January 17th, 2019 by Hasso Hering

In the gloom of an Albany afternoon in January, it may be interesting to know that at least a few legislators this year would like to do something about daylight saving time or DST. More precisely, they would like to get rid of the pointless ritual of adjusting our clocks by one hour twice a […]


Cal vote might help on twilight rides

Written November 25th, 2018 by Hasso Hering

[youtube video=”Sv3yW1IRmAc”] Getting a late start on my Sunday bike ride, I got caught by the gathering dusk. Then I thought of California, where on that general subject, the majority of voters this month had the right idea.

Another time change looms: Nuts!

Written March 7th, 2017 by Hasso Hering

The insanity of our semiannual time changes has long been established. No additional proof is needed, but we’ll get it anyway on Sunday.


End time change? It’s hopeless

Written March 13th, 2016 by Hasso Hering

  One day into another round of daylight saving time, we might as well admit it: As pointless and destructive as this ritual is in the modern age, we are not going to get rid of it because most people don’t care.


Initiative would ban Oregon PDT

Written November 13th, 2015 by Hasso Hering

David A. Miles, a resident of Medford, wants to make daylight saving time unconstitutional in Oregon. Good luck to him.


Daylight time again, but why?

Written March 12th, 2015 by Hasso Hering

By now you may have gotten over the effects of the time change last Sunday. And if you were lucky, you didn’t fall victim to the increase in the frequency of traffic crashes that is said to be following the springtime switch. This is what our lawmakers are counting on. They count on us to get over […]
