Sounds Close Out Season With 10-2 Loss

 

Katin Homers, Koshansky Extends Hit Streak To 18 For Nashville In Losing Effort

Nashville SoundsMetairie, LA – The Nashville Sounds wrapped up their 2010 slate on the short end of a 10-2 loss to the New Orleans Zephyrs in a Labor Day finale on Monday afternoon at Zephyr Field.

With the defeat, Nashville (77-67) split the four-game series with New Orleans but finished the year with an 11-5 victory in the season series against the Z’s.

Brendan Katin (2-for-3) drove in both Sounds runs on the afternoon and finished the year with 76 RBIs, second-most on the club.

First baseman Joe Koshansky went 1-for-4 on the day for Nashville to close out the year with an 18-game hitting streak, tied for the 6th-longest streak by a Pacific Coast League player all season and the best effort by a Sounds batter since Vinny Rottino hit in 24 straight in 2008.

Katin got the scoring started as he continued his late-season surge at the plate with a two-out solo homer to left in the top of the first inning to give the Sounds a 1-0 lead. «Read the rest of this article»

Fort Campbell KY, 101st Airborne Division PatchKunar Province, Afghanistan – One might say U.S. Army Sgt 1st Class Timothy N. Easton is in the home improvement business for eastern Afghanistan.

Easton, who is from Buffalo, NY, uses his 12 years of experience as a combat engineer to assess and recommend ways to increase protective measures for Afghan National Security Forces throughout the area covered by Task Force Bastogne.

Afghan Soldiers and police officers often live at the bases, observation posts and checkpoints he visits. Making these locations more secure is essential to helping the Afghan forces do their jobs, he noted.

Building Better Bridges for Tennessee

 

Tennessee Bridges: A Systematic Approach

Tennessee Department of TransportationBridges are not only integral parts of our transportation system; they are some of the most iconic images of our cities and state. For example, the Market Street Bridge in Chattanooga, Henley and Gay Street Bridges in Knoxville, Shelby Street Bridge in Nashville, and I-40/Hernando DeSoto Bridge in Memphis are all structures inherently tied to the images of cities in which they are located.

Tennessee has more than 19,500 bridges. Only nine states have more, and each year, teams of TDOT bridge inspectors comb the state looking at each beam, deck and bridge support on nearly 10,000 of those bridges. We are proud to have a nationally recognized bridge inspection program operated by people dedicated to keeping Tennesseans safe.

It has been three years since the collapse of the I-35W Bridge in Minneapolis, Minnesota. In the days, weeks and months following the collapse, TDOT began a number of reviews both internally and with the help of the Federal Highway Administration to ensure that we have sound programs and policies in place that could prevent such an incident in Tennessee. «Read the rest of this article»

Murdoch’s two goals only offense in Lady Govs soccer loss

 

Austin Peay State University GovernorsTroy, AL – Sophomore Jocelyn Murdoch scored two goals, but Austin Peay State University women’s soccer team lost, 5-2, to Troy, Sunday, in the final game of the Troy Invitational. Not only was it the season’s first loss, it also marked the first goals scored against the Lady Govs in 2010.

“It was a struggle for us,” head coach Kelley Guth said. ”Troy did a good job putting pressure on us and we just didn’t respond to it. There were moments where I thought we were in it, but we just didn’t come out to play. We have to play consistent for 90 minutes and we didn’t do that today.”
