+# with the following exceptions:
+#
+# - Gibson, Jasper, Lake, LaPorte, Newton, Porter, Posey, Spencer,
+# Vandenburgh, and Warrick counties have been like America/Chicago.

+# - Dearborn and Ohio counties have been like America/New_York.

+# - Clark, Floyd, and Harrison counties have been like

-# From Paul Eggert (1995-12-19):
-# Indiana generally observes either EST all year, or CST/CDT,
-# but areas near Cincinnati and Louisville use those cities' timekeeping
-# and in 1969 and 1970 the whole state observed daylight time;
-# and there are other exceptions as noted below.
# Shanks partitions Indiana into 345 regions, each with its own time history,
# and writes ``Even newspaper reports present contradictory information.''
# Fortunately, most of the complexity occurred before our cutoff date of 1970.

# Other than Indianapolis, the Indiana place names are so nondescript
# that they would be ambiguous if we left them at the `America' level.
# So we reluctantly put them all in a subdirectory `America/Indiana'.
