This game is for everybody


It’s just a few days away from what most people would call the biggest game in Saints history. I am finding myself so excited I can’t sleep. I have to myself admit, I can’t believe it. I seriously CAN NOT believe it. Think about it, how many times have the NEW ORLEANS SAINTS had a legitimate shot to actually win a championship?

No, this isn’t “just a ball game”. It’s much bigger than that. Few things apart from God himself can bring people together like football.

APSU to present the first of the Winter Salon Series for the year


Dr. Dixie Webb, Professor of Art History and Dean of the College of Arts & Letter, will present a slide show and lecture on local folk artist ET Wickham, at the Customs House Museum and
Cultural Center auditorium, on the corner of Commerce and South 2nd Streets on January 14 from 2:00PM to 3:00PM in historic downtown Clarksville.

From 1950 to his death in 1970, ET Wickham created a bevy of statues which featured Indian chiefs, politicians, patriots, and religious figures. The record shows that during this period he built over 30 life-size concrete statues.  Wickham’s art is a well kept secret and a cultural treasure trove. Sadly over the last few years the statues have been repeatedly targeted by vandals. His work is featured at the Wickham Stone Park for more information visit their web site.

Christopher Burawa, the Director of the APSU Center of Excellence for the Creative Arts pointed out “The philosophy behind the series is that Art can happen any time, any place”. In our community the Center certainly fulfills that goal admirably.
