APSU Men’s Basketball

Austin Peay State University GovernorsClarksville, TN – Although Murray State is Austin Peay’s acknowledged rival, Morehead State certainly has proven to be its nemesis in recent times.

Those two clubs will square off 7:30pm, Tuesday night in Dave Aaron Arena as  the Governors close out pre-Christmas play with a key Ohio Valley Conference contest.

Until the Governors squeaked out a 56-55 thriller on a Justin Blake three pointer against the Eagles late last January, the Governors had lost four straight in the series, including a double-overtime 67-65 loss in the 2009 OVC title game.

Mortarman shares close calls, passion for his job

 

Written by U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Mark Burrell
Task Force Bastogne Public

Fort Campbell KY, 101st Airborne DivisionBastogneKunar Province, Afghanistan – He’s a calm individual. His voice is barely above a whisper.

Maybe because waiting for the enemy to attack in a hastily built fighting position in the Hindu Kush Mountains makes everybody whisper. Maybe because he doesn’t get that excited anymore.

Whatever the reason, he rarely raises his voice when asked about his three combat tours during his seven years in the Army.

Rarely. Except when he talks about blowing things up.

Controversy over “The 12 Days of Christmas”?

 

The Internet can give you information or misinformation. It’s up to you to read both sides and decide for yourself. Take the popular Christmas song, “The 12 Days of Christmas,” for example.

First, you need to understand that most authorities agree that the actual 12 days of Christmas begin on Christmas Day or the following day, December 26, and end on Epiphany, January 6, the day reputed to be the time when the Three Kings (or Magi) presented their gifts to the Christ Child.
