        Be sure and mark your calendar for Aug. 21, for a sighting of the Eclipse between the hours of 1-3 p.m. Most of the commercial stores have sold out of the special eclipse glasses — do be careful. We are fortunate to live in this area since we have not had this type of eclipse in 100 years. Also, steer clear of Oak Ridge and Knoxville if you can. Tourism for this day has been estimated to include international tourists.
