There is one more show remaining in the APSU Spring Dance Concert at 2pm Sunday, Be sure to catch it!
Austin Peay State University’s Center of Excellence for the Creative Arts and the Theatre and Dance Department are currently holding their 4th annual Spring Dance Concert. The program directed by Marcus Hayes features 13 works choreographed by the incredibly talented Dance Faculty at APSU, and their students.
I described last summer’s dance concert as poetry in form and motion, and I stand by that description with the spring program. The student performers are incredibly graceful as they weave lithely back and forth across the stage in intricate patterns dictated by the music, and the joy in their souls.«Read the rest of this article»
Bat in Dunbar Cave Tested Positive for White Nose Syndrome
Tennessee State Parks will suspend cave tours at Dunbar Cave State Park after a bat from Dunbar Cave tested positive for White Nose Syndrome. Other park activities and events, including fishing, hiking and picnic facilities will remain open and available to the public.
Dunbar Cave does not have a large bat population due, in part, to a past fire and therefore, was not closed in 2009 when the state closed public caves in an effort to protect Tennessee bat populations from White Nose Syndrome. The cave is closed every year from November through March to allow the limited number of bats that are there a disruption free hibernation. It has not yet reopened for the year, and has not hosted any public visitors over the winter.

Author James A. Hudson will be holding a book reading at Hastings Books on April 3rd from 1:00pm to 4:00pm. He will also be signing copies of his books for attendees.
Recently I had the opportunity to review a book, entitled, “The Rising of Black America with the Assistance of White America”, by James A Hudson.
My first opinion of the book was that it was to opinionated and lacked substance. My bias was due to how the author categorized the black community in the acknowledgment section of the book.
As I continued to read, my interest began to grow. My biases melted towards the writing style of the author and my views of his focus became more vivid.
To me, the book focus was fair and its suppositions are relevant to the content of the subject matter. Focusing on the struggles of the African American, the material presented was found to be close to the way I witnessed the treatment of blacks in the 1960s. «Read the rest of this article»
