Time in the United States
Time in the United States, by law, is divided into nine standard time zones covering the states and its possessions, with most of the United States observing daylight saving time for the spring and fall months. The time zone boundaries and DST observance are regulated by the Department of Transportation. Official and precise timekeeping services are provided by two federal agencies: the National Institute of Standards and Technology; the clocks run by these services are kept synchronized with each other as well as with those of other international timekeeping organizations. It is the combination of the time zone and daylight saving rules, along with the timekeeping services, which determines the legal civil time for any U. S. location at any moment. Before the adoption of four standard time zones for the continental United States, many towns and cities set their clocks to noon when the sun passed their local meridian, pre-corrected for the equation of time on the date of observation, to form local mean solar time.
Noon occurred at different times but time differences between distant locations were noticeable prior to the 19th century because of long travel times and the lack of long-distance instant communications prior to the development of the telegraph. The use of local solar time became awkward as railways and telecommunications improved. American railroads maintained many different time zones during the late 1800s; each train station set its own clock making it difficult to coordinate train schedules and confusing passengers. Time calculation became a serious problem for people traveling by train, according to the Library of Congress; every city in the United States used a different time standard so there were more than 300 local sun times to choose from. Time zones were therefore a compromise, relaxing the complex geographic dependence while still allowing local time to be approximate with mean solar time. Railroad managers tried to address the problem by establishing 100 railroad time zones, but this was only a partial solution to the problem.
Weather service chief Cleveland Abbe had needed to introduce four standard time zones for his weather stations, an idea which he offered to the railroads. Operators of the new railroad lines needed a new time plan that would offer a uniform train schedule for departures and arrivals. Four standard time zones for the continental United States were introduced at noon on November 18, 1883, when the telegraph lines transmitted time signals to all major cities. In October 1884, the International Meridian Conference at Washington DC adopted a proposal which stated that the prime meridian for longitude and timekeeping should be one that passes through the centre of the transit instrument at the Greenwich Observatory in the United Kingdom; the conference therefore established the Greenwich Meridian as the prime meridian and Greenwich Mean Time as the world's time standard. The US time-zone system grew from this, in which all zones referred back to GMT on the prime meridian. In 1960, the International Radio Consultative Committee formalized the concept of Coordinated Universal Time, which became the new international civil time standard.
UTC is, within about 1 second, mean solar time at 0°. UTC does not observe daylight saving time. For most purposes, UTC is considered interchangeable with GMT, but GMT is no longer defined by the scientific community. UTC is one of several related successors to GMT. Standard time zones in the United States are defined at the federal level by law 15 USC §260; the federal law establishes the transition dates and times at which daylight saving time occurs, if observed. It is the authority of the Secretary of Transportation, in coordination with the states, to determine which regions will observe which of the standard time zones and if they will observe daylight saving time; as of August 9, 2007, the standard time zones are defined in terms of hourly offsets from UTC. Prior to this they were based upon the mean solar time at several meridians 15° apart west of Greenwich. Only the full-time zone names listed below are official. View the standard time zone boundaries here; the United States uses nine standard time zones.
As defined by US law they are: From east to west, the four time zones of the contiguous United States are: Eastern Time Zone, which comprises the states on the Atlantic coast and the eastern two thirds of the Ohio Valley. Central Time Zone, which comprises the Gulf Coast, Mississippi Valley, most of the Great Plains. Mountain Time Zone, which comprises the states and portions of states that include the Rocky Mountains and the western quarter of the Great Plains. Pacific Time Zone, which comprises the states on the Pacific coast, plus Nevada and the Idaho panhandle. Alaska Time Zone, which comprises most of the state of Alaska. Hawaii-Aleutian Time Zone, which includes Hawaii and most of the length of the Aleutian Islands chain. Samoa Time Zone, which comprises American Samoa. Chamorro Time Zone, which comprises Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands. Atlantic Time Zone, which comprises Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands; some United States Minor Outlying Islands are outside the time zones defined by 15 U.

Great Miami River
The Great Miami River is a tributary of the Ohio River 160 miles long, in southwestern Ohio and Indiana in the United States. The Great Miami flows through Dayton, Troy and Sidney; the river is named for the Miami, an Algonquian-speaking Native American people who lived in the region during the early days of European settlement. They were forced to relocate to the west to escape European-American settlement pressure; the region surrounding the Great Miami River is known as the Miami Valley. This term is used in the upper portions of the valley as a moniker for the economic-cultural region centered on the Greater Dayton area; as the lower portions of the Miami Valley fall under the influence of Cincinnati and the Ohio River Valley, residents of the lower area do not identify with the Miami in the same way. The main course of the Great Miami River rises from the outflow of Indian Lake in Logan County, about 1 mile southeast of the village of Russells Point 15 miles southeast of Lima. Indian Lake is an artificial reservoir which receives the flow from the North and South forks of the Great Miami River.
It flows south and southwest, past Sidney, is joined by Loramie Creek in northern Miami County. It flows south past Piqua and Troy, through Taylorsville Dam near Tipp City and Vandalia, it continues through Dayton, where it is joined by the Mad rivers and Wolf Creek. From Dayton it flows southwest past Miamisburg, Franklin and Hamilton in the southwest corner of Ohio. In southwestern Hamilton County, it is joined by the Whitewater River 5 miles upstream from its mouth on the Ohio River, just east of the Ohio-Indiana state line 16 miles west of Cincinnati; the river meanders across the state line near Lawrenceburg, Indiana in the last two miles before reaching its mouth ¼ mile east of the border in Ohio. The border of Ohio and Indiana was based on where the confluence of the Ohio and Great Miami Rivers was in 1800. In the 1700s, the French called the river Riviere a la Roche; the Miami and Erie Canal, which connected the Ohio River with Lake Erie, was built through the Great Miami watershed. The first portion of the canal, from Cincinnati to Middletown, was operational in 1828, extended to Dayton in 1830.
Water from the Great Miami fed into the canal. A extension to the canal, the Sidney Feeder, drew water from the upper reaches of the Great Miami from near Port Jefferson and Sidney; the canal served as the principal north-south route of transportation from Toledo to Cincinnati for western Ohio until being supplanted in the 1850s by railroads. As was common in early industrial days, beginning in the 19th century the river served as a source of water and a method to dispose of wastes for a variety of major industrial firms, including Armco Steel, Champion International Paper, Black Clawson and many others. Heightened attention to water pollution in the late 1950s and 1960s has led to significant improvements in waste disposal and water quality. Following a catastrophic flood in March 1913, the Miami Conservancy District was established in 1914 within Ohio to build dams and storage areas, to dredge and straighten channels to control flooding of the river; the Great Miami River has been known as: Assereniet River Big Miami River Gran Miammee Fiume Grande Miami Riviere Great Miama River Great Miamia River Great Miammee River Great Mineami River Miami River Riviere à la Roche Rocky Fiume Rocky River Big Mineamy River Great Miamis River Great Miyamis River Miamis River Riviere La Rushes Rockey River Clear Creek Loramie Creek Mad River Stillwater River Twin Creek Whitewater River Wolf Creek Indian Creek Taylor Creek Four Mile Creek List of rivers of Indiana List of rivers of Ohio Little Miami River Arthur Benke & Colbert Cushing, Rivers of North America, Elsevier Academic Press, 2005 ISBN 0-12-088253-1

Comair was a wholly owned subsidiary airline of Delta Air Lines, headquartered on the grounds of Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport in Boone County, United States, west of Erlanger, south of Cincinnati. Operating under the brand name Delta Connection, Comair operated passenger services to destinations in the USA, Canada and the Bahamas. Comair and Delta Air Lines announced on July 27, 2012, that Comair would cease operations on September 29, 2012; the airline was established in March 1977, started operations in April 1977. Patrick J. Sowers, Robert T. Tranter, David Mueller and his father Raymond founded the airline in Cincinnati. At the end of its first year of profitable operations, two of the company founders and Tranter, abruptly resigned the day following the first annual meeting as a "demand for immediate change" after they had uncovered repeated unacceptable and unsafe operational practices by one of the other partners. Comair suffered a fatal crash the year following their departure.
Comair began scheduled services to Akron/Canton and Evansville with two Piper Navajo aircraft. Embraer EMB-110 Bandeirante twin-engine turboprop commuter aircraft were added to Comair's fleet in 1982. Under its parent Comair Holdings, it became a public company in July 1981 to support the growth and capital requirements to upgrade its fleet. In 1984, Comair became a Delta Connection carrier with Delta Air Lines' establishment of a hub at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport; that same year, Comair introduced its first international flights from Cincinnati to Toronto. Turboprop aircraft operated by Comair on Delta Connection code sharing flights serving the Cincinnati hub included the Embraer EMB-110 Bandeirante, Embraer EMB-120 Brasilia, Saab 340, Short 330 and Swearingen Metro. In July 1986 Delta Air Lines acquired 20% of Comair stock; the airline began operating a second hub at Orlando International Airport during the late 1980s in support of the Delta hub at the airport. In 1992, Comair moved into Concourse C at CVG, as Delta Air Lines continued to acquire more of the airlines stock.
In 1993, Comair was the launch customer for the Canadair Regional Jet CRJ100 and would operate the largest fleet in the world of this twin jet type. By 1999, Comair was the largest regional airline in the country worth over 2 billion, transporting 6 million passengers yearly to 83 destinations on 101 aircraft; that same year, in addition to shorter range flights from its Cincinnati and Orlando hubs, Comair as the Delta Connection was operating nonstop flights between Cincinnati and Nassau, nonstop between Cincinnati and Colorado Springs, nonstop between Boston and Myrtle Beach, nonstop between Boston and Montreal, nonstop between Tulsa and Las Vegas with the latter being the westernmost destination served by the airline. Delta Air Lines acquired full ownership on October 1999 at a cost of over $2 billion. On March 26, 2001, Comair's pilots went on strike; the strike grounded its fleet. The strike ended 89 days when a new contract was agreed to. However, there were seeds sown of a bitter animosity between Comair.
During the labor dispute in early 2001, there were some Delta pilots who contributed financially to the strike funds of Comair pilots. Like many legacy carriers, Delta furloughed a number of pilots after the September 11 attacks in 2001. While waiting to be recalled, some Delta pilots were able to find work at some of the regionals such as Atlantic Southeast Airlines, who were not hit nearly as hard as the major airlines. However, a furloughed Delta pilot could only be hired at Comair if he/she resigns his/her seniority number with Delta Air Lines and thus, there were few furloughed Delta pilots who went to Comair; this would intensify a rift between both parties. Comair came to nationwide attention during winter 2004 when it canceled all of its flights on Saturday, December 25 and Sunday, December 26, stranding 30,000 people; the reason was a combination of a crew scheduling software flaw. On December 23 and 24, a record snowfall hit the Cincinnati area, forcing the airline to deplete its entire supply of deicing solution.
With the area highways closed due to the blizzard, no additional deicing fluid could be delivered to the airport, Comair was forced to cancel all flights beginning on Friday December 24. After receiving necessary supplies overnight, the airline began the process of startup when the computer system that handled flight crew assignments shut down, it had been designed with a hard coded limit of changes for a month, which were far exceeded due to the poor weather in the prior days. The software had been in the process of being phased out at the airline in favor of a new system with more capabilities. Comair's parent company Delta Air Lines filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy on September 14, 2005, bringing Comair into bankruptcy along with it. Comair announced; these savings were achieved by aircraft and employee reductions. In late 2006, Comair opened an additional crew hub at New York City's JFK Airport. Comair had the lowest percentage of on-time flights of all major U. S. carriers during late 2006.
This was the result of starting operations at JFK, a congested airport with poor staffing and an unfortunate terminal and aircraft ramp layout that dropped Comair's ratings in the DOT listings. In 2008, Comair tied with American for the lowest on-time performance, with 70% of its flights arriving on-time. During the course of 2007, Comair closed down its crew bases in Greensboro, North Carolina and Orlando, Florida. On May 25, 2007, Delta announced that Comair would operate 14 stretched CRJ900
Gallatin County, Kentucky
Gallatin County, is a county in the northeastern part of the U. S. state of Kentucky. As of the 2010 census, the population was 8,589, its county seat is Warsaw. The county was founded in 1798 and named for Albert Gallatin, the Secretary of the Treasury under President Thomas Jefferson. Gallatin County is included in OH-KY-IN Metropolitan Statistical Area, it is located along the Ohio River across from Indiana. The county was formed on December 14, 1798. Gallatin was the 31st Kentucky county to be established, it was derived from parts of Shelby counties. Parts of the county were pared off to create three additional counties: Owen in 1819, Trimble in 1836, Carroll in 1838. Today Gallatin is one tenth of its original size, its northern border is the Ohio River. The population of Gallatin County in 1800 was 1,291, according to the Second Census of Kentucky, composed of 960 whites, 329 slaves, 2 "freemen of color". During the Civil War, several skirmishes occurred in the county and the Union Army arrested a number of men for treason for supporting the Confederates.
The 1866 Gallatin County Race Riot happened just after the Civil War, when bands of lawless Ku Klux Klansmen terrorized parts of the Bluegrass State. "A band of five hundred whites in Gallatin County... forced hundreds of blacks to flee across the Ohio River."On December 4, 1868, two passenger steamers, the America and the United States, collided on the Ohio River near Warsaw. The United States carried a cargo of barrels of kerosene; the flames soon spread to the America, many passengers perished by burning or drowning. The combined death toll was 162, making it one of the most deadly steamboat accidents in American history; the Lynchings of the Frenches of Warsaw were conducted by a white mob on May 3, 1876. It was unusual as Benjamin and Mollie French were killed for the murder of Lake Jones, older African-American man, they were hanged by local masked KKK members. As the 20th century progressed, commercial river trade began to decline, the steamboat era ended, as faster means of transportation became available.
Rail lines expanded and trucks became reliable, aircraft soon arrived on the scene. In the postwar period after World War II, numerous major highways were constructed, leading to greater auto travel and commuting. Gallatin County is traversed by I-71, U. S. 42, U. S. 127. By the 1980s, more than 50 percent of the population was employed outside the county. Construction on the Markland Locks and Dam began in 1956 and was completed in 1964. In 1967 a hydroelectric power plant was built at the dam. Marco Allen Chapman was executed in 2008 for multiple murders he committed on August 23, 2002 in Warsaw, Kentucky, he murdered two children, Chelbi Sharon, 7, Cody Sharon, 6, by slitting their throats. He stabbed their mother, Carolyn Marksberry, more than 15 times. A third child, daughter 10-year-old Courtney Sharon, played dead after being stabbed and escaped. Thirty-seven-year-old Chapman was executed on November 21, 2008 by lethal injection at the Kentucky State Penitentiary in Eddyville, Kentucky, he was the last person executed by the Commonwealth.
According to the U. S. Census Bureau, the county has a total area of 105 square miles, of which 101 square miles is land and 3.5 square miles is water.

Dearborn County, Indiana
Dearborn County is one of 92 counties of the U. S. state of Indiana located on the Ohio border near the southeast corner of the state. It was formed in 1803 from a portion of Ohio. In 2010, the population was 50,047; the county seat and largest city is Lawrenceburg. Dearborn County is part of OH-KY-IN Metropolitan Statistical Area; the western boundary of Ohio had been determined by the Greenville Treaty Line of 1795. In 1803 a wedge, or pie shaped, piece of land in Hamilton County east of the treaty line along Ohio's southwestern border was ceded to the Indiana Territory, it became Dearborn County. All or part of seven other present day counties were carved from the original county with the present boundaries being established in 1845; the "Gore" area slices through the present-day counties of Dearborn, Ohio, Switzerland, Union and Fayette. Subdivision of Dearborn County began in 1811 with the formation of Franklin and Wayne Counties, followed by Switzerland in 1814, it was named for Gen. Henry Dearborn.
Dearborn was U. S. Secretary of War at the time the county was named. Early growth was centered on Lawrenceburg, an important railroad junction connecting two of the regions major rail lines. Lawrenceburg was designated as the county seat. However, from the start, a contention existed between the towns of Lawrenceburg and Rising Sun over that designation; the contention between the two towns was resolved in 1844 when the Indiana State legislature separated the portion of Dearborn County south of Laughery Creek and created the new county of Ohio on March 1, 1844, with Rising Sun designated as its county seat. According to the 2010 census, the county has a total area of 307.42 square miles, of which 305.03 square miles is land and 2.38 square miles is water. Part of the southeastern county line is formed by the Ohio River. Dearborn County contains the Perfect North Slopes ski resort.
