It’s fall-back time
Lansing residents will join most of the rest of the United States this weekend in setting their clocks back an hour to herald the end of daylight-saving time for the year.
Time will "fall back" one hour officially at 2 a.m. Sunday.
The change will mean earlier sunrises but also earlier sunsets beginning Sunday. For example, Saturday's sunrise was at 7:43 a.m. and sunset at 6:23 p.m.; Sunday's sunrise is 6:44 a.m. with a 5:22 p.m. sunset.
Residents are reminded to turn their clocks back an hour before retiring for the night Saturday.
When residents here change their clocks, officials with the Leavenworth County Fire District No. 1 also want people to remember to change the batteries in their fire detectors.
Federal law regarding the observance of daylight-saving time changes in 2007. The change back to daylight-saving time will move to the second Sunday in March, and clocks won't fall back until the first Sunday in November 2007.
