Clarksville, TN – “It’s been a long ten months,” according to Wendy’s of Clarksville Mike O’Malley speaking about the re-opening of the Riverside Drive Wendy’s location.

Govs final OVC prep takes them to Western Kentucky, Tuesday

 

APSU Men’s Baseball

Austin Peay State University GovernorsBowling Green, KY – With Ohio Valley Conference play looming this weekend, Austin Peay’s baseball team has one last opportunity for some prep work when it travels to Western Kentucky for a 6:00pm, Tuesday contest at Nick Denes Field. The game was originally scheduled for Wednesday, but the forecast included a chance of rain so both teams agreed to move the game to Tuesday.

The Govs (9-9) are still seeking to end a recent slide that has covered the last eight games and seen them post a 2-6 record in that span. Austin Peay’s offense has been a particular concern, posting a .213 batting average and scoring just 3.0 runs per game in that span.

APSU presents special ‘Landscape in Art and Music’ on March 28th

 

Austin Peay State UniversityClarksville, TN – For centuries, artists and musicians have found inspiration in landscapes.

Whatever the cause, creative giants such as the artist Pablo Picasso and the composer Robert Schumann have evoked the earth’s vast and unfathomable settings for some of their greatest works.

On March 28th, Austin Peay State University will host a special program, “Landscape in Art and Music: Small Art Works on Paper with Music for Small Ensembles,” that will fuse together these two art forms. The event, which is free and open to the public, begins at 6:00pm with a gallery viewing and a concert to follow at 7:30pm in the Music/Mass Communication Building. «Read the rest of this article»
