+# Here's database-relevant material from the 2001 "Alaska History" article:
+#
+# On September 20 [1979]...DOT...officials decreed that on April 27,
+# 1980, Juneau and other nearby communities would move to Yukon Time.
+# Sitka, Petersburg, Wrangell, and Ketchikan, however, would remain on
+# Pacific Time.
+#
+# ...on September 22, 1980, DOT Secretary Neil E. Goldschmidt rescinded the
+# Department's September 1979 decision. Juneau and other communities in
+# northern Southeast reverted to Pacific Time on October 26.
+#
+# On October 28 [1983]...the Metlakatla Indian Community Council voted
+# unanimously to keep the reservation on Pacific Time.
+#
+# According to DOT official Joanne Petrie, Indian reservations are not
+# bound to follow time zones imposed by neighboring jurisdictions.
+#
+# (The last is consistent with how the database now handles the Navajo
+# Nation.)
+
+# From Arthur David Olson (2011-02-09):
+# I just spoke by phone with a staff member at the Metlakatla Indian
+# Community office (using contact information available at
+# <a href="http://www.commerce.state.ak.us/dca/commdb/CIS.cfm?Comm_Boro_name=Metlakatla">
+# http://www.commerce.state.ak.us/dca/commdb/CIS.cfm?Comm_Boro_name=Metlakatla
+# </a>).
+# It's shortly after 1:00 here on the east coast of the United States;
+# the staffer said it was shortly after 10:00 there. When I asked whether
+# that meant they were on Pacific time, they said no--they were on their
+# own time. I asked about daylight saving; they said it wasn't used. I
+# did not inquire about practices in the past.
