For those running Arizona-oriented wikis in Texas (or anywhere else in
the world), they should probably put the following in config.php:
This says to use "Mountain Standard Time" with no daylight savings
time conversion. Then the dates and times are as one would expect,

(See http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/Cookbook/ChangeTimeFormat .)
Also, I now have an test of conditional date markup running
at http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/Test/IfDate , for those who would
like to experiment with it.
