WASHINGTON (AP) ó Relax, itís finally time to reclaim that hour of sleep you lost last spring.

Thatís right, Saturday night the clocks are turned back in most of the country.

Of course, most folks will do the job before hitting the sack Saturday night, even though the change doesnít become official until 2 a.m. Sunday local time.

And, of course, a few will forget. You can recognize them because theyíll be an hour early for church, golf or whatever.

Residents of Hawaii, most of Arizona and some U.S. territories donít have to change since they did not observe daylight-saving time.

Public safety officials say this is also a good time to put a new battery in the smoke alarm, no matter where you live.

Daylight-saving time returns the second Sunday in March.
