Troop 426 of New Douglas spent the day canoeing at Whispering Oaks in Salem, Ill., on Aug. 5. They discussed safety in canoe, learned how to communicate with the canoe mate, explore the lake and had the freedom to make decisions so they would not tip the canoe. The Juniors and Cadettes were paired with Brownies, and overall it went very well. The troop is looking forward to its camping trip in September to Camp Butterfly in the Farmington, Mo., area. Pictured are Joanna Fogg, Haleigh Rensing, Lexi Fogg, Hanna Rensing, Erin Brown, Cheyenne Choat, Elizabeth Brown, Caleope Smith, Wyatt Choat, and Mattie McNealy. Troop 426 will meet the second and fourth Wednesdays each month starting on Aug. 26 at the New Douglas Fire Department, 103 E. Allen St.

  • Reactions to the 2017 solar eclipse at the Louis Latzer Library

    The Louis Latzer Memorial Public Library, located at 1001 9th St. in Highland held an eclipse viewing party on Aug. 21. Members of the community came to view the event through the special filtered library telescopes. This is the first time in almost 100 years that a total solar eclipse has traveled coast to coast in the United States, and it might be the last one for another century, according to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. The eclipse "path of totality" passed through parts of southern Illinois, though Highland was not on the bounds.
