Western Nebraska Observer - Observations all along the line - Kimball & the Southern Panhandle First

Letter to the Editor

A letter from weary solar eclipse travelers

 

October 12, 2017



This letter was sent to Mayor Prunty and shared with WNO later.

Mr. Keith Prunty, I sent you a letter and it was returned to me because I did not have your name. The massage I want to convey is that Mr. Hernandez helped us.

Ben and I are seniors and had gone to Agate, NE to see the eclipse. We felt we could not drive home after driving 5 hours in traffic to see the eclipse. It took us four hours to get to Kimball. We were in a long line that was just inching along. Joseph Hernandez came from the opposite direction and (how he picked us out is beyond me). He asked where we were going and we said we are trying to get to the Days Inn on 3rd St. He said follow me and he turned around right in the middle of the street so we followed him on a gravel road over the railroad tracks and got to our motel. He wouldn’t take any money and I want to thank him through you. I also wrote to the Chamber of Commerce. Thank you so much.

Julia Long
