Marsha Blackburn Report: This Week From Washington – January 5th, 2020

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – We accomplished a lot in Washington in 2019, but you probably didn’t hear about it from the mainstream media; they were (and still are!) hyperfocused on impeachment. From giving our military the largest pay raise in a decade, to protecting the sanctity of life, I spent my first year in the Senate fighting for Tennessee values

In 2020, I will continue to advocate for what Tennesseans consistently tell me is most important to them: protecting family values, fighting to expand rural health care and broadband access, helping workers succeed, and securing the nation.

Senator Marsha Blackburn.

Austin Peay State University to induct Melton Self into 2020 APSU Athletics Hall of Fame

 

Austin Peay State University Sports - APSU - Governors - Lady GovsClarksville, TN – Austin Peay State University (APSU) alumni Melton Self grew up in Alabama but certainly made his life—an impactful one—in Tennessee. But it almost didn’t happen. In fact, Self twice almost stayed in his home state, but thoughts of the Alabama coal mines got the better of him and changed his mind.

Self was born in Dora, Alabama, and starred as a prep running back at Dora High School alongside Ben Fendley. Football coach Dave Aaron offered both scholarships. Fendley readily accepted to come north to Tennessee and Austin Peay State University. But Self still had a year of high school eligibility remaining at Dora but accepted his offer a year later (1947).

APSU to induct Vanja Tomic Vidovic into 2020 Austin Peay State University Athletics Hall of Fame

 

Austin Peay State University Sports - APSU - Governors - Lady GovsClarksville, TN – Austin Peay State University (APSU) women’s tennis had ceased to be relevant. In the mid-1980s, APSU won a pair of Ohio Valley Conference championships and continued to contend for the title until the mid-1990s. But for some 15 years, APSU women’s tennis was an afterthought as far as the OVC was concerned.

But in 2010, a sophomore, Vanja Tomic Vidovic, transferred in the spring semester from NAIA program Lindsey Wilson College, where she played No. 2 singles and No. 1 doubles as a freshman. First-year Austin Peay coach Malik Tabet had developed a relationship with Tomic Vidovic, a Bosnia native, while he was at Indiana State… before the program was eliminated, and Tabet came to Austin Peay State University as coach.
