    Special to The Trimble Banner

    The change, as usual, will be at 2 a.m., but most people change their clocks by turning them back one hour before going to bed the evening before which, in this case, will be Saturday. That means, for example, if going to bed at 11 p.m., turn your clocks back to 10 p.m. before going to sleep. Then they will have the correct time on Sunday morning and you will have gotten an extra hour of sleep.
