There is hope in the battle

By Heather Russell
Staff Reporter

Kitty Waddell, wife and mother of two, was diagnosed with incurable liver cancer in 2002.  Her case was so rare, that doctors in Texarkana referred her to the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas, where even doctors there had only ever treated a few cases like hers.  By 2008, Waddell had undergone two different liver surgeries and doctors were confident they had the growth of her cancer under control, when a regular mammogram showed three abnormalities in one of her breasts.  Just hours later, an ultrasound and biopsies confirmed that Kitty had breast cancer.

TC Physics Professor Offers Tips for Safely Viewing the Upcoming Solar Eclipse

Anticipation of a solar eclipse on Monday gives area residents a reason to gaze into the sky—but if you’re planning to watch the eclipse, you’ll need to take some key precautions to protect your eyes from the sun’s harmful rays.

 

“There are only a few safe ways to view the sun directly during an eclipse,” said Delbert Dowdy, Texarkana College physics professor. “The three ways are to use special glasses made for solar eclipses, sun filters made for the fronts of telescopes, and number 14 welding glasses. It is especially dangerous to use sunglasses, cameras, phones, or any kind of smoky glass to look at the sun during an eclipse.”

 

He said looking at the sun, even though it is not as bright during an eclipse, can cause solar retinopathy, or permanent damage to the retina of the eye. Although total blindness is rare, damage can take many forms such as dark spots in your vision that never go away.

Cattle production is big in Texas and it is big business. It is no different for local producers, but for one local cattle rancher, it is much more than just a business.
