|Rand Paul Protests Afghanistan Troop IncreaseWest Kentucky Star / 3 h. 3 min. ago more|
A leader of the GOP's non-interventionist wing says it's a "terrible idea" to send any more American troops to Afghanistan. Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky issued a statement ahead of a prime-time address by President Donald Trump to unveil his updated Afghanistan policy. It is expected to include a few thousand more U.S. forces.Paul says the mission in Afghanistan "has lost its purpose."He also wants Congress to more aggressively assert its war-making powers. Paul is planning to propose an amendment next month to the annual defense policy bill that would repeal the war authorizations that Congress granted after the Sept. 11 attacks.Paul says if the White House and Congress "want to continue the war in Afghanistan, then at the very least Congress should vote on it."

|Trump Vows Victory in AfghanistanWest Kentucky Star / 6 h. 11 min. ago more|
President Donald Trump says the U.S. "can no longer be silent" about terrorist safe havens in Pakistan. He says Pakistan often gives sanctuary to "agents of chaos, violence and terror," and says the Taliban and other groups there pose a threat to the region and beyond.Trump is outlining his administration's strategy to the war in neighboring Afghanistan. He says a pillar of that strategy is a change in the U.S. approach to Pakistan.He adds that Pakistan has much to gain from partnering with the U.S. and much to lose from harboring terrorists.For years, Washington has criticized Pakistan's tolerance of Taliban militants who launch attacks in Afghanistan. During the Obama administration, restrictions were imposed on military aid to Islamabad because of those concerns.Defense Secretary Jim Mattis is signaling the U.S. will increase troop numbers in Afghanistan as part of the president's new war strategy.Mattis says he has directed the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff to prepare to carry out President Trump's plans.He doesn't speak about the size of a U.S. troop increase.But he says he'll consult with NATO and U.S. allies, "several of which have also committed to increasing their troop numbers."Mattis says, "Together, we will assist the Afghan Security forces to destroy the terrorist hub."

The construction company president and his family set up at the Bald Knob Cross of Peace in Alto Pass, which is a more than 100-foot high cross on top a 1,000 foot tall mountain. Schueck called the eclipse "one of the most moving experiences" he's ever had. He said it was "as if the sun set and rose within about three minutes." Nearby, the Shawnee National Forest in southern Illinois saw the longest stretch of darkness: 2 minutes and 44 seconds. Organizers at the cross site expected more than 700 people. Schueck said the eclipse also was "an excellent opportunity to do something with my daughters that they'll remember for the rest of their lives."

|Giraffes Gallop During Nashville EclipseWest Kentucky Star / 11 h. 7 min. ago more|
The giraffes ran in circles. The flamingos huddled together. And the rhinos just looked confused. At the Nashville Zoo, visitors watched and recorded how the animals behaved when the sky turned dark during Monday's total solar eclipse. And there was plenty to see when the moon slipped in front of the sun. The only trouble was with 7,000 visitors and lots of noise drowning out the zoo animals, crickets and cicadas zookeepers still have to figure whether the strange behavior was from the eclipse or the people there to watch the show. The giraffes were the stars. Especially 6-month-old Mazi and 3-year-old Nasha. They're crazy running around, said Nate Zatezalo, who came from Cleveland, where he volunteers at the zoo there. During the full eclipse, all four giraffes ran. That's not unusual for the two juveniles who scamper at twilight after the crowds leave. But the father giraffe, Congo, usually doesn't do anything other than being the dad and is regal and above it all, said zoo volunteer Stephen Foust. But even the above-it-all dad got in on the running during darkness. Zookeepers reported that before totality the orangutans climbed to the highest heights they've ever gone. Teresa Morehead of Indianapolis came to the zoo to help track the animals on an app called iNaturalist. She staked out the giraffes and rhinos. The rhinos wandered a bit, seeming to head to bed. I was surprised to the see they were running,' she said, although noting that they seemed more confused than anything.The zoo project was one of many science experiments planned for the eclipse. Citizen-scientists and their more professional counterparts loaded up on pictures, video, data and just weird experiences as the eclipse's shadow crossed the United States, especially paying attention to the edges flaring out of the darkened sun. Telescopes on the ground, a fleet of satellites, astronauts in space and high-altitude balloons watched the eclipse unfold. Now scientists have to figure out what it all means. For the National Solar Observatory's Citizen CATE project, everyday people were given telescopes and camera equipment and trained to record the eclipse as it moved from Oregon to South Carolina. It was really successful, said Matt Penn, an astronomer who ran the project. Skies were clear in at least 50 of the 70 sites, including the first and last locations on the coasts, he said. By the end of Monday night, Penn hoped to have a 70-minute movie stitched together. We captured the right images of the science that we wanted, he said. Astronomers concentrated on the plumes from the sun's polar region to help understand why the solar wind speeds up so much, Penn said. The sun's upper atmosphere, called the corona, or crown, was the focus of astronomers' attention. It's easier to study when the sun is blocked. Honor S. Hare, a freshman at the University of Kentucky, was at an elementary school in Adairville, Kentucky, overseeing the observations there. It has been a great opportunity and I have learned so much, she said.

|Out-of-Towners Enjoy 'Pitch Dark in the Ballpark'West Kentucky Star / 11 h. 14 min. ago more|
The 2-1/2 minutes of celestial beauty is over, but most people stopped whatever they were doing inwestern Kentucky and southern Illinois to watch the first total solar eclipse in the US since 1979. Some folks traveled here to see it. More than 400 revelers gathered at Brooks Stadium in Paducah at "Pitch Dark in the Ball Park." A large majority of the crowd were visitors from the eastern half of the country. License plates in the parking lot testified to the mileage driven by skywatchers from Ohio, North Carolina, Delaware and New Jersey. A survey of families stretched out on blankets in the outfield revealed hometowns in the Chicago suburbs, Detroit, and even as far as deep woods Maine, where less than half of the sun was obstructed. Almost everyone opted for the ubiquitous paper glasses, but a few brought along full welders helmets. An amateur photographer from San Angelo, Texas said he had inspected several viewing sites around the area, and decided that the location for him to get the best photos was Paducah's historic stadium, just behind second base. Ben Hayslip came from Oklahoma City with his wife, Suzanne and daughters Lauren and Hannah. They joined hundredsof others who came to Pitch Dark in the Ballpark at historic Brooks Stadium. Ben said he chose Paducahspecifically. "You guys had the best weather forecast, you were in totality, and you were just about exactly between thegreatest length of totality and the darkest spot of totality," Hayslip said. He said they spent the night in West Plains, MO, and had no traffic issues during the drive. Hayslip said it's his first eclipse and he hadn't spoken to anyone who ever saw one, so all he knew to expect iswhat he read about it. The Gibson family came to western Kentucky from Jackson, Mississippi because their first choice was full. "Nashville was completely booked up, and Paducah looked like a nice place. A little hometown - we're both fromhometowns in Alabama, originally, so we wanted to come check out this place," Mr. Gibson said. They are staying in Mayfield, but got to take a historical tour of downtown Paducah yesterday, and said they lovethe town. "It's just like modern-day Mayberry, it's beautiful here!" Mrs. Gibson said. "It's just incredible, thecornfields, the people are so nice. It's wonderful here." She said Paducah turned out to be a better place to view the eclipse anyway, since there was longer totality thanNashville. When reminded that another eclipse will pass over Paducah in 2024, she said, "we'll be back, we love it so much!" After the sun started to come back out of the moon's shadow, two young men from Long Island, New York were also already making plans for the next eclipse. When told that the 2024 eclipse would pass through their home state, they quipped that it would be worth the trip, even if they did have to spend time in Buffalo or Cleveland to experience it.

|Nearly 3000 Attend WKCTC 'Night at Noon' EventWest Kentucky Star / 12 h. 21 min. ago more|
Nearly 3,000 people were on hand on the campus of West Kentucky Community and Technical College Monday afternoon to watch the first total solar eclipse in the continental United States in 38 years. Visitors enjoyed activities, music, science demonstrations, food from local vendors, and had the opportunity to see the NASA high altitude balloon launch. The launch, conducted by a team of students and faculty from Kentucky Space Grant Consortium at Bluegrass Community and Technical College (BCTC), and a team from the University of Connecticut Hartfordand the University of Connecticut Bridgeport, was as part of a nationwide, NASA-sponsored project to live-stream aerial video footage of the "Great American Eclipse." From the cameras mounted in the balloon that traveled up to 100,000 feet into the air. Footage from the camera, and the many other launches from teams across the country will be available for public viewing on NASA's website, nasa.gov. Folks from all over the world attended WKCTC's Night at Noon event. "I've wanted to see an eclipse for years; I missed the one several years ago in the UK," said Claire Brooks of Sheffield, England, who also traveled over 20 hours to be in Paducah for the big day. "Everyone has been brilliant since we arrived. To be part of a community event like this is great!" The Zlotogorski family traveled by plane, train and car for more than 22 hours from their home in Jerusalem to see the eclipse. "We started planning this one year ago in August. I read many, many sites and I somehow reached Paducah,....we thought this was the best place for us," said Krassi Zlotogorski. Former astronaut and Kentucky native Colonel Terry Wilcutt was Night at Noon's eclipse emcee. He spoke with area middle and high school students and visitors about his space experiences, NASA's current programs, and the concepts behind the awe-inspiring cosmic event. "We (NASA Educational Outreach) like anything that makes people think about science...that will hopefully inspire some of the kids and others to STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) careers." He said. Wilcutt has been a special guest at Paducah's Challenger Learning Center many times, including the day the center opened in August 2002. Monday's visit and participation in Night at Noon offered something new for him. Night at Noon Chairperson and Challenger Learning Center at Paducah (CLC) Director MelissaDuncan said she was thrilled with Monday's Night at Noon event, a culmination of a year's planning with the event committee. "I want to thank the committee, college employees and all the volunteers that helped make Night at Noon so successful. We've been planning for over a year and are happy we had great event!" she said. "Our Night at Noon eclipse event also aligned with our education mission to promote and raise awareness about careers in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math (STEAM), such as the curriculum taught at our CLC," said WKCTC President Dr. Anton Reece. "Last, I would like to thank all of our Night at Noon volunteers, Paducah Police department, and other emergency response agencies."

|Eclipse Influx Brings $30 Million to HopkinsvilleWest Kentucky Star / 12 h. 58 min. ago more|
One of the most anticipated natural events in recent history has come and gone, but the economic impact thousands of visitors looking to get a glimpse of a rare total solar eclipse left on one town will likely be felt for quite some time. Hopkinsville was considered by many to be the best location in the country to view the eclipse, and Mayor Carter Hendricks told WKDZ officials are estimating that millions of dollars in revenue were generated by the influx of an estimated 150,000 sky watchers. "Projections from our tourism experts has been about 30 million [dollars] for the weekend of a total economic impact. That's including all of the spending that might happen at hotels, restaurants, fueling stations and supermarkets, and with our vendors and merchants and so forth." Hendricks said. Hendricks added that his primary concern was accommodating the large crowds, and making sure they had the type of experience that made them feel proud to be a part of it. He says he hopes many of the visitors will come back in the future. "Long term we hope that they do come back time and again, and if they want to spend a little money in the commonwealth, and in Christian County and Hopkinsville, then by golly we'll be happy to take it." He said. For all of the extra traffic created by the mass of people flooding the area, Hendricks said there was not any increase in emergency calls over the weekend. He congratulated local residents for showing such good hospitality and behavior. "Our chief Freddy Montgomery has been sending me reports each evening based on the emergency calls he has had, and actually the emergency calls this weekend have been less than the comparable weekend last year," Hendricks said. "So what I think is actually happening is our eclipse chasers are just good people looking for an honest experience to have a scientific phenomenon right here at their doorstep, and then our local residents have certainly rolled out their red carpets. They're providing great hospitality and everyone is on absolute best behavior."

|Sun and Moon Put on Big Show for EarthWest Kentucky Star / 13 h. 44 min. ago more|
The first full eclipse in just under 100 years to stretch across the United States is now over, and people all across the region got to see a nearly unobstructed view of the eclipse from beginning to end. Thousands gathered across western Kentucky. The eclipse started at 11:56 am, Paducah time, and lasted about three hours, with eclipse totality lasting an average of about 2 minutes and 30 to 40 seconds across the area. NASA Astronaut, Col. Terry Wilcut, emcee'd the eclipse at the WKCTC NASA event in Paducah through totality. Wilcut is a native of Kentucky. He was born in Bowling Green, and grew up in Louisville. "It's really an honor and kind of a special event for me to be here and see it," says Wilcut. "I think to me an eclipse kind of reminds me of our place in the universe, you know...it's a dynamic universe, with the sun, the moon and the earth lining up together and getting to experience the total eclipse," Wilcut added in the news interview with members of the media. The campus of WKCTC served as an official NASA viewing event, with hundreds showing up to watch the sky turn dark in the middle of the day. NASA also released multiple balloons from the campus, equipped with cameras, transmitters, and multiple experiments about 10 to 15 minutes prior to totality. The balloons were to travel around 19 miles into the atmosphere, before a lack of air would cause them to rupture and come crashing to the ground, slowed by a parachute. The GPS equipped balloons were to be recovered by crews from the campus, with the data sent to NASA. Campus officials told West Kentucky Star they were happy the event came to the campus, a result of the Challenger Learning Center being located on the campus. "It has been a great event," says Mellisa Duncan, Director of the Challenger Learning Center at WKCTC in Paducah. "The eclipse committee planned the event for over a year. We had vendors, an astronaut, DJ and kind of like a party atmosphere, that even included bouncies for the kids. The Challenger Learning Center is part of the network that was started by the families of the astronauts that were lost in the accident back in 1986. And we all know onboard that shuttle was Christa McAuliffe a teacher and so education was very important to that crew," added Duncan. The Challenger Learning Center is one of about 40 locations worldwide, dedicated to the space shuttle Challenger, which exploded shortly after taking off from Cape Canaveral, FL in 1986. The area will be visited by another total eclipse, the last eclipse for most people's lifetimes in just seven years in 2024. This time the path of totality will come from the southwest and intersect right over Carbondale, IL, with Monday's event. Paducah is in the path of totality for that eclipse as well.
