Question of the Week: Daylight saving time begins Sunday. Many people have strong feelings about the “spring forward, fall back” seasonal time shift. What do you think?

Brooke Anderson, senior, Ceres High School

Although I love the weather we are having now, I am excited to “spring forward” (minus the fact that we lose an hour of sleep) because that means that spring and summer are right around the corner! Which means warmer weather! Also, it being light outside past 5 o’clock will be a nice change as well.

Dominique Germann, freshman, Modesto Junior College

I love time change (springing forward, at least). It is just what I need to feel more awake first thing in the morning. The fall part, well … that’s another story.

Shelby Sutter, junior, Enochs High school

I do not really care. As long as I am getting enough sleep!
