Tonight while many New­ton County res­i­dents are sleep­ing, time will “spring for­ward.” At 2 a.m. this morn­ing, most of Amer­ica will set their clocks for­ward one hour for day­light sav­ings time. The only states that do not ad­here to the time change are: Ari­zona, Hawaii and U.S. ter­ri­to­ries Puerto Rico and the U.S. Vir­gin Is­lands. Day­light sav­ing times used to spring for­ward on the first Sun­day in April and fall back on the last Sun­day in Oc­to­ber. How­ever, in 2005, the U.S. Congress changed the date in an ef­fort to save more en­ergy. Pic­tured above is a mag­no­lia tree off Floyd Street in down­town Cov­ing­ton, which was al­ready bloom­ing in Fe­bru­ary.
