A ghastly, undead creature haunts one of APSU's 'bowls', demonstrating the mechanical and creative ingenuity of APSU students.

A ghastly, undead creature haunts one of APSU's bowls, demonstrating the mechanical and creative ingenuity of APSU students.

G.H.O.S.T. hosted creepy thrills and a fun night full of treats without tricks. Austin Peay State University student organizations and departments opened the campus to the community to give parents, and children the chance to have a safe time while trick or treating. Students stood in the twilight hours of the fading October sun, dressed in various costumes with spectacular organizational displays.

Some organizations such as the Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA), and Chi Epsilon Mu had costume themes. Those two groups chose vampires and pirates, respectively. Chi Epsilon Mu won the first place prize for their two-story pirate ship playhouse display, allowing members to man the tables, and the vessel in true ship-man teamwork.

G.H.O.S.T., a long-stranding tradition at Austin Peay State University, stands for Greater Halloween Options for Safe Trick or Treating, and is presented annually by the SGA on the last Sunday before Halloween between the hours of 4:30 pm to 7:00 pm. «Read the rest of this article»

CTS fares “adjusted”: Elimination of transfers could double cost for many riders


Approve an increase in bus fares, then hold a public hearing. The city’s Transportation Committee has unanimously approved the new CTS rate structure. The Clarksville Transit System has now scheduled a public hearing for August 11 at 5:30 p.m. at the Clarksville Public Library, where it will explain to the public the planned fare structure and proposed route changes and take public input on those changes. Concerned CTS riders and all citizens can also respond to the increases by mail if unable to attend the hearing (legal notice and mailing address at end of story). Currently, the changes will go into effect on September 1.

Clarksville Transit Center, the downtown hub for connecting buses

As it stands, the new fare structure means cost of riding city buses could nearly double for many people who use the Clarksville Transit System. While the actual fare per ride will remain unchanged at $1.00 per ride, the 25 cent transfers will be history. That means riders who need to transfer would pay full fare for that second ride, the second half of their journey. Since it is impossible to go from the western side of town along Fort Campbell Boulevard to the mall area along Wilma Rudolph Boulevard or to Madison Street and the Sango area without a transfer, all of those passengers could see their transit costs nearly double. The elimination of transfers translates to a de facto 75 cent increase in bus fare for riders who need to utilize two buses navigate across town or into adjoining residential neighborhoods. «Read the rest of this article»
