Austin Peay State University launches Gov Life ongoing series of student success profiles

 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – Austin Peay State University (APSU) sophomore Elijah-Pharaoh Carter, better known as the “Violin Guy”, spends every Friday entertaining students passing through campus by playing his violin, an instrument he has studied most of his life and has performed with on the stage of New York City’s famed Carnegie Hall.

But Carter’s story is not defined by an instrument — or a funny nickname, for that matter. While music was his first love, the Memphis native came to Austin Peay in pursuit of a different dream — earning a bachelor’s degree in computer science.

My Two Cents: When The Music Dies

 

My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterClarksville, TN – I took a motorcycle trip this weekend and with it comes lots of time for reflection as I roll down the highway. It’s one of my greatest pleasures now. The music and me.  Alone.  

It’s been a sad couple of years for losing musical icons.  It seemed like every day there was one right after another.  I remember thinking, “boy this year sucks.”  Then another, and another.

Dodging the Roadkill: Pop’s Travel Center

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyLacon, AL – Along Interstate 65, between Huntsville and Birmingham Alabama, just off exit 318, sits a welcome site.  Pop’s Travel Center.  It’s the only business at this exit and it’s well worth the visit.

I discovered this place quite by accident.  

While riding my Harley back home to Tennessee last year, I was getting “drowsy” and had a bit of an appetite, so the next exit, 318, I pulled off to take a break.

I was greeted by a Stuckeys and a family restaurant.  Having grown up visiting Stuckeys when we traveled,  it was a welcome site.

Pops Travel Center is owned by husband and wife, Mary and Jerry "Pops" Pierce.
