(Re: “Drop daylight saving”, the Local, March 12)
Nancy Leathley’s concerns about daylight saving time do not address the very real issues of all that extra sunlight’s fading of window curtains and the unnecessary stress the earlier start to the day brings to all the dairy cows in the land. The authorities in control of such things in Queensland, Australia, known to many in the south of the country as “The Deep North”, have been right on top of things from the start: there is no daylight saving in Queensland. House-proud homeowners and exhausted dairy cows rest easy in their beds for that extra hour, while all the other citizens of the Commonwealth get on with business.
