September 11th 2012

 

Clarksville, TN – Yesterday was the 11th anniversary of the terrorist attacks of September 11th, 2001. Just over a decade ago, our country was changed in big and small ways that we are still feeling today. In the attacks 2,977 people were killed and more than 6,000 were injured after 19 hijackers flew two jetliners into the World Trade Center buildings, another smashed into the Pentagon; with the last being crashed into the ground in Pennsylvania after the passengers attempted to take back control of the aircraft.

Immediately after the attacks the world held its breath as it waited to see where the vengeance of America would fall, American soldiers reported in immediately, some would be immediately boarding aircraft’s to travel to foreign locations across the globe ready to assist in the strike against America’s enemies. Many civilians moved by the sight of the attacks rushed to recruiting centers to enlist in the military services

APSU’s New HSC Building Wins Prestigious Design Award

 

Austin Peay State UniversityClarksville, TN – Most Austin Peay State University students aren’t relying on the sundial atop the new Hemlock Semiconductor Building to get them to class on time, but Tom Bauer, with Bauer Askew Architecture PLLC, said his firm didn’t want to take any chances. They spent months researching and designing the sundial tower, which serves as a symbol of the solar technology being taught inside the facility, to make sure the archaic time-telling tool was as accurate as possible.

“That was a lot of fun, but it was challenging too,” he said.

City of ClarksvilleMayor Kim McMillan has sent a letter to the local legislative delegation, requesting that they seek an opinion from the state Attorney General about the Power Board’s recent hiring of former Clarksville Mayor Johnny Piper as superintendent of Clarksville Department of Electricity.
