Heavy clouds eclipse local viewing

A near total solar eclipse passed over Statesboro and Bulloch County Monday afternoon. Unfortunately, thick cloud cover obscured the 97-percent pinnacle of nature's unique show from local eyes.

A 'primal experience'

Connection all humans have

I am 4 or 5 years old. My arms are curled tightly around my father's neck. His arms are wrapped around my waist. We are standing in the Ogeechee River, wide and dark, brown as coffee. The trees that grow along its banks are tall and heavy with branches that dangle over the river, dripping Spanish moss. On the sandbar just a few yards away, my family - aunts and uncles and cousins, grandparents, my mother, my brother - move around in a cone of sunshine, a spotlight cutting through the canopy of cypress and pine and scrub oak.

A nurse placed the babies together in one incubator. The healthy baby threw an arm over her sister's upper torso, either intentionally or by chance. The smaller baby's heart rate stabilized and her temperature rose to normal. Some said, "That's astonishing!"

He still maintains that the pot we found in the glove box of his car belonged to someone else, but he still maintains that he ...
