Austin Peay State University

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – Earlier this year, Dr. Dwayne Estes, Austin Peay State University professor of botany, was eating lunch with Henry Paulson, the former U.S. Treasury Secretary under President George W.

Between bites, Estes explained that for thousands of years, grasslands covered much of the southern United States, but today, more than 90 percent of this vast habitat, along with the different creatures that called these grasslands home, has disappeared.

Dodging the Roadkill: In The Hot Seat

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – First let me apologize for not posting anything lately.  I’ve just had nothing to write about since I returned from my trip to Ft. Smith Arkansas.  I try not to post anything just to “post” something.  

Well, I’ve had plenty to talk about here lately. 

THE WEATHER!

Apparently I slept through Spring and missed it here.  In this part of the country, we’ve gone straight from Winter to Summer, because it’s been unseasonably hot lately.  I really don’t think we had a “spring” this year, and if we did, well, I missed it.

But that’s ok.  I’m not complaining.  There’s been great days to ride, and ride I have!  Riding in the heat can be a chore, but it can also be some of the best times ever.

AAA says Gas Prices Packing Punch to Motorists

 

AAATampa, FL – At $2.81, the national gas price average is 45 cents more expensive than a year ago. With the unofficial kick-off to summer just weeks away, prices are expected to increase, but a tapering trend may be emerging.

“If this past week’s moderate increases are any indicator of what’s to come, the fast rate at which gas prices were increasing may be slowing down,” said Jeanette Casselano, AAA spokesperson. “On the week, the national average held steady and 19 state averages remained flat or saw decreases in gas prices. Despite this stability, drivers on the West Coast and in Idaho, Utah and Pennsylvania are paying $3.00/gallon.”
