Let there be light, an hour longer into the evening sky
WASHINGTON (AP) - Time to set your clocks and watches one hour ahead.

No time change is observed in Hawaii, most of Arizona, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Guam and the Northern Marianas. Florida could eventually join that list if GOP Gov. Rick Scott signs the "Sunshine Protection Act" passed this week and Congress goes along.
It's a good time now to consider installing fresh batteries in smoke detectors.
Standard time returns Nov. 4.
