Time Changes Inside House in Western Kansas

KSAL StaffMarch 4, 2015

This weekend’s time change can be rough on some people. But consider Ron and Sherry Finlay.

Their home near Kendall in western Kansas sits on the line that divides the Mountain and Central time zones, about 1 1/2 miles from the Kearny County line. So, when a person walks through the Kendall’s east door, it’s Central Time. Go through the west door, and it’s Mountain Time.

The Hutchinson News says the confusion’s nothing new. It’s been going on since mid-1980, when Kearny County asked the U.S. Department of Transportation, which oversees the nation’s time zones, to change from Mountain to Central time.

Sherry Finlay says her family has adapted but the change can confuse visitors.

Currently, only Hamilton, Greeley, Wallace and Sherman counties in Kansas remain on Mountain Time.
