Saint Peter's Square was created so that more people could be in the presence of the Pope and was named after Saint Peter, one of Jesus's apostles.

During the 1970s, the energy crisis came to the forefront and some states voted to add Daylight Savings Time to conserve energy. Most of the continental U. S. has since adopted this law except for some areas in Indiana and a very small segment of Arizona. There may be others for which I am not aware.
As has already been pointed out, Indiana has since gone to DST.
But I always found it fascinating how sometimes people would get the situation almost, but not quite right. It wasn't a question that there were a few areas that didn't observe DST. It was the opposite- there were only a few that did. Only 14 of the 92 counties in the state changed their clocks. But I once had some woman who had never set foot in Indiana argue with me about it.
Sadly, Mitch Daniels pushed the DST legislation through a number of years ago. I was so bummed. I hate DST.
The northwestern corner depends on all it's TV etc from Chicago so I figure that's why they are, why the southwestern counties decided to go that way is a mystery..There was a bill introduced this week to put us all on Central.. I would rather stay on Eastern. They need to leave well enough alone now. I always thought the reason for Daylight Savings was to give the farmers more daylight hours..
I think the Evansville area was staying with St. Louis, but I never understood why since they aren't that close. And then the counties around Cincinnati always stayed with Cinci which at least made sense.
