Clarksville, TN – Brad Kirtley, who was Austin Peay’s Sports Information Director from 1984-2016 and is himself a Hall of Fame inductee, takes a look back at this year’s Hall of Fame inductees, continuing today with Erik Barnes…
Former Austin Peay golf coach Kirk Kayden, along with current Govs coach Robbie Wilson, were in Chandler, AZ, this past weekend, watching a trio of former Govs attempt to earn their playing cards in the Web.com Tour Qualifying Tournament.
Kayden, now the Mercer men’s golf coach, couldn’t help but gush about watching the three former Govs: “It was so much fun watching these guys getting a chance to realize their dreams. It was a pretty special thing, a once-in-a-lifetime deal…Three of your former players are playing in Web.com final. That just doesn’t happen. I had to make it work; I had to be there.”

Clarksville, TN – Well, here we go. That dreaded time of the year for all bikers.
Now, depending on what part of the country you live in, this time of the year means something different to each of us. I live in Middle Tennessee, near the Kentucky border. Typically we don’t have too brutal of a winter, but there have been times when we don’t leave the house for a few days, much less, think about riding a motorcycle.
I follow several social media groups where bikers who live in places like Chicago, or South Dakota and Wyoming, talk about “winterizing” their bike. I’ve seen pictures of bikers who live in extreme weather conditions and they have winters that I only see in the news.

Washington, D.C. – After several months of downtime since Hurricane Maria struck the island of Puerto Rico, the Arecibo Observatory Planetary Radar has returned to normal operation, providing the highest-resolution images to date of near-Earth asteroid 3200 Phaethon during its December 2017 close approach to Earth.
The radar images, which are subtle at the available resolution, reveal the asteroid is spheroidal (roughly ball-shaped) and has a large concavity, or depression, at least several hundred meters in extent near its equator, and a conspicuous dark, circular feature near one of the poles. Arecibo’s radar images of Phaethon have resolutions as fine as about 250 feet (75 meters) per pixel.
