Independent Film “Bleacher Boys” to be Shown at APSU

 

The Austin Peay State University Center of Excellence for the Creative Arts, in partnership with the Customs House Museum, will present the independent documentary film “Bleacher Boys” at 2 p.m., April 3 in the Clement Auditorium on the APSU campus. Following the film, audience members will be able to ask questions of the director, Karen Hunter. This event, which is part of The Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers, is free for Austin Peay students and the general public.

“Bleacher Boys” is a story of five men who shared a common dream as boys: the dream of growing up and playing Major League Baseball. Five men, each of whose dreams were dashed at an early age due to blindness. Five men, whose stories differ in detail, yet share that one common element. Their stories unfold in chapters like the innings of a baseball game with them sitting in the bleachers. Each inning becomes a chapter from their lives as they relate the hardships of overcoming the painful reality of never seeing again, to the struggle to create a new dream. All are masterful storytellers whose tales become easy for us to identify with and whose perseverance we can admire.

Fort CampbellKHOST PROVINCE, Afghanistan – Coalition forces and Afghanistan’s National Directorate of Security took a leap forward in strengthening rule of law in the country’s eastern provinces, March 25, with the initiation of the NDS embed program at Forward Operating Base Salerno.

The embed program, which kicked off with a site survey by NDS officials, members of the 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division, and Task Force Paladin, marked the first time Afghanistan’s prosecutors would establish a permanent presence on a U.S. military installation.

Intense and powerful “Of Mice and Men” now playing at the Roxy Regional Theatre

 

Sometimes you just don’t know your own strength

As the play begins, we are introduced to quick witted George Milton (Gili Getz) and simple minded Lennie Small (Kevin Hauver) , two friends, migrant ranch workers who are making their way through the depression era country side as they head to a new ranch where they are hoping to get work.

Stopping for the night before arriving at the ranch we learn that Lennie doesn’t realize his own strength, and that he has an attraction for tactile sensation. He likes soft things, this is something that has caused problems for him in the past. We also learn that George and Lennie share a dream of owning a ranch of their own.

Dreams are a theme that echos throughout the Steinbeck’s book and the Roxy’s adaption of this play.

Falafel With Yogurt Sauce

 

Falafel is a dough made with chick peas or garbanzo beans and lots of spices. Its deep fried and that is perhaps why this southern U.S. girl likes it so much. Falafel is pronounced FA-LAW-FULL with the emphasis on the middle syllable. Both the ‘a’ sounds are like the British sound in “laugh”.

I had never had falafel until about 5 years ago when the children were studying Israel in school. I bought a mix from the store and made it here at home, It was very delicious and the whole family enjoyed it. Later, I was given a recipe by a friend to make homemade falafel. There is no comparison in the taste. I always make the homemade now. If you’ve never tried falafel and you’re not very fond of trying new recipes, I suggest that you buy a mix and try it first. But if you’re game for something new in the kitchen, try my homemade falafel recipe with the accompanying yogurt sauce. «Read the rest of this article»
