Local elementary school teacher Lucinda Bass died yesterday at Alive Hospice following a stroke about three weeks ago, family members say.
Mrs. Bass, 85, had taught first grade in a number of Nashville schools for more than 50 years until her retirement in 1986. In her later years, she traveled extensively in Europe and Australia, frequently mailing postcards back home.
"She had a good life and a good death," her son Scott says. "She loved us, and she loved her students, and we are her legacy. I will always remember this day."
Sun rises Nov. 3, astronomers report
The sun, after dropping from sight over the Western horizon on Nov. 2, rose in the East Wednesday, Nov. 3, astronomers at Vanderbilt's Dyer Observatory report.
"Charting the sunrise on a given day isn't considered cutting edge astronomy," says professor David Barnard. "But we probably don't appreciate it as we should. Sometimes I like to just stand and feel its rays on my face."
Astronomers reported that there's a good chance that the sun will rise in the East regularly for the foreseeable future.
