Indiana adopted Daylight Saving Time (DST) in Spring 2006. Additionally, the U.S. Dept. of Transportation has ruled on the requests of individual counties to change their time zone. St. Joseph County, Indiana, will remain in the Eastern time zone. For information on Daylight Saving Time (DST), see http://webexhibits.org/daylightsaving/f.html and scroll down to Indiana.
A public dialogue about time zone issues provided some lively discussions. In response to a newspaper columnist's assertions, Chuck Bueter wrote an opinion about the scientific (in)accuracy of some public comments at timezone.htm. An Indiana study questions the merits of DST after Indiana's switch was implemented.
AstroCamp puts telescopes in the hands of kids at YMCA Camp Eberhart in Three Rivers, Michigan. For images from past astronomy camp adventures and for more information, see http://analyzer.depaul.edu/paperplate/astrocamp.htm. Next opportunity is July 27 to August 2, 2008.
