Father & Daughter share unforgettable moment


2017-08-21 - Fountain Plaza, 1st Quadrant, Public Square, Columbia, KY - Photo by Ed Waggener, ColumbiaMagazine.com.
Lucian Edwards drove to the Square today to be with his daughter, Debbie Edwards Selby, for the Solar Eclipse - and to share Solar Eclipse viewing glasses. Edwards, who is 84, said that he had seen eclipses before, but this was the first time he ever got to look directly the eclipse. The other experiences were "nothing like this one he said." - EW

We need boxes and/or totes if anyone has any because we are moving!!! We want to thank Ellen Hingle for allowing us to use her building on the square for the last year. We knew when going in that her building was for sale and Ellen has found a buyer. We are so happy for her! However, this does mean a transition for us!!

Mike Watson: Reckoning time via the Eclipse

This event, the eclipse of later today, might be a time to reflect on why and how we remember what we do...and if we do. - Mike
Click on headline for complete column

By Mike Watson

The reckoning of time and placement of events in proper order is often a daunting task. As an historian, a dumpster-diver for history, one might say, I have found the memory to be quite fragile. We often remember an event in vivid detail, but the sequence leaves us lacking.

With the near-total eclipse (for many of us) coming around noon today, and not having this close proximity, at least here at home, again in our lifetimes, we shall remember this one for many years. We shall likely reckon some events by this occurrence. By that I mean, it will be of such significance to use that we will remember other events in relation to the eclipse.

How are you spending your Eclipse Day, 2017?

Many are finding this day in America, August 21, 2017, one of the most exciting to be alive in this century as the moon and stars align for a total eclipse of the sun. Totality.

By Linda Waggener


Eclipse 2017 includes our area -- over 98% totality -- as calculated by ACHS students 98.473% darkness here in Columbia, KY starting at 1:29pmCT and lasting until 1:31pmCT -- putting us in near total darkness.

According to the website Space.com, a solar eclipse can happen only when the moon is positioned between the sun and planet Earth as its shadow falls upon the surface of Earth.

Solar Eclipse safety information from National Weather Service

Click on headline for complete story with embedded NASA/Goddard Pinhole Projection with Cereal Box Video

Safety information courtesy of NASA

Looking directly at the Sun is unsafe except during the brief total phase of a solar eclipse (totality), when the Moon entirely blocks the Sun's bright face, which will happen only within the narrow path of totality.

The only safe way to look directly at the uneclipsed or partially eclipsed Sun is through special-purpose solar filters, such as eclipse glasses or hand-held solar viewers. Homemade filters or ordinary sunglasses, even very dark ones, are not safe for looking at the Sun. To date four manufacturers have certified that their eclipse glasses and handheld solar viewers meet the ISO 12312-2 international standard for such products: Rainbow Symphony, American Paper Optics, Thousand Oaks Optical, and TSE 17.

The Whitehurst Diaries: Dog Days, August 2017

'Greek and Roman astronomers reviewing the notes of their predecessors, added their own observations of August weather, linking excessive heat, drought, or violent thunderstorms to all manner of ills--lethargy, fever, human passions run amok, maddened dogs . . . Willis makes his rounds early each morning, keeping to the graveled circuit of the dooryard or clambering onto the retaining wall at the front of the house where he can keep tabs on our comings and goings.'
Click on headline for complete diary entry with photo(s)

By Sharon Whitehurst

I have never noted the presence of Sirius, the Dog Star, the harbinger of sunrise during the hot days of waning summer. Our farmhouse, situated at the end of a winding gravel lane, is tucked into a narrow valley between steep ridges. Oak, maple and ash crowd the slopes, blocking the earliest view of morning sun. Mist hovers above Spruce Pine Creek and drifts across a neighbor's field, shredding and dissolving as it reaches the comparatively open spaces surrounding the lower house and barn at the bottom of the lane.

The 'dog days' have been identified from antiquity as a 'period of stagnation or inactivity' arriving yearly to stifle inhabitants of the Northern Hemisphere.
