Making Daylight Time Year-Round
Lincoln County Rep. Jason Saine has joined with other representatives including Kelly Hastings (Gaston-Cleveland) in filing HB350, a bill entitled Designate NC Time Zone/Observe DST All Year.
Upon approval from Congress, the legislation would mandate that North Carolina be on Daylight Savings Time year-round. Rep. Hastings and Rep. John Szoka (R-Cumberland) are the other primary sponsors.
“It's time to change this outdated policy," Rep. Saine said, "changing our clocks twice a year is no longer necessary in today’s world.”
Rep. Szoka added, “The time has come to spring forward on daylight savings time policy, so North Carolina no longer falls back."

the latest news every day--
Back in 2012, the late Larry Dellinger, having spent over half a century in the newspaper business, saw that the times had changed. People were getting their news from the internet--more and more every day. That's when he decided to start the Lincoln Herald.
Using the internet made for a number of advantages compared to other media. Unlike print newspapers, on the internet, articles could be updated as new information became available. There was no need to wait to publish news in a next day's or next week's edition. Also, by not having the expense of newsprint (the paper on which newspapers print their news), the news could be offered FREE to readers. Unlike most newspapers, you can read the articles the Lincoln Herald publishes FREE. We even post links to all of them on Facebook and Twitter; and when you sign up for our FREE email service, we'll send you an email every day with links to our articles posted since the previous day's email. That way, you won't miss the latest news, obituaries, sports and other items of interest for Lincoln, Gaston, Catawba & Cleveland counties.
