Instead of reading about history in a book, Rogersville City School students spent Monday afternoon outside witnessing history in person as a once-in-a-century solar eclipse passed over their campus.
Their eclipse glasses look like they're made for a 3-D movie. But instead of creating the illusion that dangerous things are coming at you, these glasses filter out dangerous things that are coming at you — specifically ultra violet rays from the sun.
"There was nobody really even close. An official came to me at the state meet and said she would be going to the state meet in high school right now with her throws, and she's only going to get bigger and stronger." — RCS track coach Michael Bowman

Rural Health Services Consortium withdrew its proposal renew the contract as the RCS school clinic provider, leaving only Dr. Chris Calendine's Promise Medical Group in the running for the contract.
