All of Indiana should definitely be on Central Time, its directly above Alabama which is almost entirely on Central except for Phenix City since that area is connected to Columbus, Georgia. When driving between Auburn in far eastern Alabama into Georgia, it was interesting how early the sun set in Auburn and how late it set in Atlanta.

Kentucky should probably be split. Tennessee is below Kentucky and its split into two time zones. I do think it makes perfect sense for Nashville to be in Central Time.

I'm also surprised Nevada is in Pacific Time and not Mountain.

Absolutely not! There's nothing better than a 9:00 PM sunset over Lake Michigan in early August. In my opinion, late sunsets in mid-summer make the summer season seem less fleeting.

But Indiana is already on central time........

You go across the Michigan border with Indiana and you have to move your clocks back.

I used to live in Indianapolis and always thought how it was bizarre how Indy was on eastern time with sunsets well beyond 9 PM at the summer.

Petoskey MI has twilight beyond 10 PM at the summer solstice.

Places that don't observe Daylight Savings should be considered their own Time Zones.

Actually Tarrant is on the edge of the Central Time Zone. The rural western Metroplex is in the Mountain Time Zone. So Dallas and Fort Worth and the important suburbs in Denton and Collin County will still be in Central Time, just barely.

San Antonio and barely Austin is in the Mountain Time zone if the latitudinal lines were the guides. Houston would still be fully in the Central Time Zone.

Living in Michigan, I suppose that you could move us to Central Time, but there really isn't a compelling reason to do so.
