Eclipse preparations chats in Adair County

By Linda Waggener

Jill Chandler of Campbellsville and Ronnie Wilson from Edmonton and I chatted today as we waited for auto service at Don Franklin Ford in Columbia.

I asked Jill what she and Bill would be doing for the eclipse.

Jill said with a wry smile, "it's just two minutes, I'll probably just close my eyes and skip it."

Ronnie Wilson was there to help his daughter Stephanie get her car repaired and didn't have eclipse plans. We did enjoy catching up on some Metcalfe County classmates from the '60s, however.

The Franklin Ford service guys didn't have plans to do anything special, just turn on the lights when it gets dark and keep right on working.
