Fifty years ago tomorrow astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first humans to ever walk on the moon. They left behind ample evidence of their more than 21-hour visit, including boot prints, medals of Soviet cosmonauts who died before the Apollo 11 mission and a small plaque inscribed with messages of peace from world leaders. That evidence is still there.
Normally, Clementine Stallworth DeRoode's day as executive chef at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama, starts at 7 a.m. This week, with daily events in celebration of Apollo 11's 50th anniversary, as well as regular museum operations and summer camps, she's been getting to the kitchen at 4 a.m. and going home around 9 p.m.
A two-hour executive session ended Thursday without an agreement on a pair of inter-related projects, leaving developers frustrated and the Starkville mayor insisting the projects are still on the table.
