PLEASE! More daylight hours all year is a positive for everyone. School kids waiting in the dark for busses isn't as much of an issue anymore since schools finally came to their senses and quit starting school at 7:15/7:30. Starting later makes more sense for kids and negates any negative of DST!!!!

The time change is outdated.

Why not. It lets your inner clock stay in sync.

It's a real pain to keep switching back and forth. I have at least 10 clocks that have to be changed by hand. And, the original purpose back in WWI has long since become obsolete.

More sleep would be nice although it would be bad for the economy to change it

There are no more hours per day in “daylight saving time” in a 24 hour day then there are in Standard Time. Why are we changing the time to permanent DST. Why not permanent Standard Time like we had for many years. The kids would not have to go to school during quite as many dark hours. Think about

An old native American was asked what he thouight about the new daylight saving. He replied,"only the federal government would cut six inches off of the top of a blanket sew it on to the bottom and think he has a larger blanket".

We already tried it; people hated it so much it was quickly reversed. Most of the people wanting to do this weren't alive when that failure of a policy was tried.

I want STANDARD time to be permanent! We started at standard time, why not go back to where we started? Why change it to Daylight savings time? I think it is creepy for it to be daylight at 9 PM!

Mother Nature provides longer daylight during the summer months. We should keep it at standard time forever.

I don't want it to be dark in the mornings in winter. Students catching school buses will be in total darkness. Not a good thing.

The time should be permanently kept at Standard (God's) Time.

Beginning to look like the city wants to be a mini Portland. Not what Central Oregon is all about.

Piping the canals to conserve water is the logical next step. Where does Commissioner Adair think the wildlife got a drink before the canals were made over 100 years ago? I will admit reducing Junipers and reinvigorating our wild grasslands makes sense.

The canals were not put in as "water features" for people's backyards. Build your own water feature and pay for the water. This water is meant for agriculture.

Commission Adair, where do you think wildlife get water when irrigation water is off Oct-March? Please share your plan and funding strategy for removing 5 million juniper trees. What will happen to the wildlife that live in those trees. Your argument is weak.

Why do Bend residence have to accommodate Jefferson county. I'm sure someone up there can figure a way go pump the water they need out of Lake Billy Chinook

Wildlife has relied on these open canals for decades. There is no other option for critter water.
