I thought that both Ohio and Indiana was on the same time zone now. Since Indiana doesn't do daylight savings time, I thought we were all on Eastern Time Zone now. Well I do know that parts of Indiana is on Ohio time now.

We Hoosiers now observe daylight savings time starting April 2nd. Gov. Daniels says we are to spring foward and fall back. National Transportation Saftey Board now placed us on Ohio Time. No more confusion in time when going underneath the arch on 1-70.
