(UNDATED) - After decades of arguing over Daylight Saving Time, Indiana finally joined most of the world in turning its clocks ahead an hour Sunday morning.

Two of the eight counties which won approval to offset the switch by moving to Central Time have already had second thoughts and asked the government to put them back on Eastern next year.

Martin County also is trying to persuade the rest of Southwest Indiana to go along. A new technology park planned near the Crane Naval Base sprawls across three counties and at the moment two time zones.
