Ancient Healing Art comes to Clarksville

 

By Christina Burawa

Clarksville, TN – We each hold the potential for healing in our hands. It has always been so.

Japanese healer Jiro Murai knew this. As a young man, early in the last century, Murai fell mysteriously ill. Doctors were unable to diagnose him, yet they pronounced him terminal.

Governors set to open Chicago tourney at SIU

Austin Peay State University GovernorsCarbondale, IL – Austin Peay will attempt to eradicate the bad taste of a disappointing 104-101 overtime loss from its mouth, 2:05pm, Sunday, when it opens the Chicago Invitational Challenge at Southern Illinois.

The Governors’ attempt to open the season at 3-0 was derailed in Nashville, Thursday night, when they missed four free throws in the final 25 seconds, allowing Lipscomb to erase a five-point deficit and send the game to overtime. Lipscomb carried that momentum to open the extra session and the Governors were never able to recover.
