BREAKING: Governor Scott Trying To Make Counties Take More Inmates Into County Jail During a conversation about new jail construction at the Santa Rosa County Commission, Santa Rosa County Sheriff's Office Bob Johnson says Governor Scott is trying to rewrite the guidelines for incarceration facilities. Currently, anyone sentenced to 364 days or less spends it in the county jail (Escambia or Santa Rosa), and anyone 1 year or more goes into a Dept. of Corrections prison (Blackwater, Santa Rosa, or Century). However, DOC is understaffed, underfunded, and terribly unsafe for both Corrections Officers and inmates. So in an apparent effort to shuffle enormous costs onto Counties, Sheriff Johnson says Governor Scott wants to increase this to 2 years, which would dramatically increase the population of the already overcrowded and expensive Escambia and Santa Rosa County Jails.
Happy 100 Years of Daylight Saving Time in the United States!! On March 19, 1918, Congress passed the Standard Time Act, affirming the time zones and creating Standard Time and Daylight Time. It was was very unpopular and "War Time" went away after WW I (by Congress, who overrode President Wilson's veto to keep it). It came back in WW II under FDR and was observed variously after that, until the Oil Embargo, when the U.S. went to year-round Daylight Saving Time from January 1974 to April 1975. At that time, energy savings were the goal, but critics said it put schoolchildren in danger in the mornings.
The Standard Time Act of 1918, also known as the Calder Act, was the first United States federal law implementing Standard time and Daylight saving time in the United States. It authorized the Interstate Commerce Commission to define each time zone.
