LDN -- Top Stories

Mrs. Boehme and members of her sixth grade class at Lincoln Junior High School check out the eclipse on Monday. The group took to the outdoors to examine a unique occurrence in the sky using solar eclipse glasses obtained from NASA. While clouds filled the sky most of the time, there were a few moments right around 1 p.m. when the eclipse was in good view.

Those who were outdoors may have noticed a sudden return of the night sounds, night bugs woke up and began their "singing." The sky grew darker though not to the extent that it did in southern Illinois where many saw the eclipse in totality.

Several students at LJHS enjoyed the opportunity to witness the eclipse, all of them gathering at the baseball field where they were able to get the least obstructed view

Mikel Petro snips the ribbon at the new Lincoln McDonald's on Monday morning. The new restaurant enjoyed a soft opening over the weekend and a grand opening on Monday with a ribbon cut hosted by the Lincoln/Logan County Chamber of Commerce.

After the "adult" version of the ribbon cut, Ronald McDonald gathered all the youngsters together for a second event - a ribbon tearing.

LDN will have additional photos from the new McDonald's in the Wednesday edition.
