Washington, D.C. – This week, Senate Democrats voted to block consideration of U.S. Senator Tim Scott, of South Carolina’s, police reform legislation. I voted to begin debate on Senator Scott’s proposal, which I co-sponsored, because it will make police officers more accountable, encourage departments to ban chokeholds and adopt best practices, provide better training to police officers, and make lynching a federal crime.
Congress should have a serious debate and consider amendments on these important issues, and it is a shame that Senate Democrats won’t allow the Senate to even begin to consider this legislation.
Lamar Alexander says to Tear Down Andrew Jackson’s Statue would be a Terrible Misunderstanding of Our Nation’s History
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) yesterday afternoon on the Senate floor said, “We should not try to erase our history. We should not try to pretend it doesn’t exist,” in response to an effort by a crowd to tear down President Andrew Jackson’s statue in Lafayette Square in front of the White House:
“Presidential historians almost without exception put Andrew Jackson in the top ten of America’s presidents. They see him as a sophisticated, often subtle political actor who without his devotion to the union, against his own local political interests, the union might well have fallen apart in 1832 or 1833,” said Senator Alexander.
Clarksville, TN – That’s a little more like what you might expect in exhibition season. A more polished, more defensively sound Austin Peay State University (APSU) men’s basketball team took to the court Saturday, looking far more like a squad seeking a third straight Ohio Valley Conference semifinals appearance—or better—as the Govs systematically took apart Lees-McRae in a 106-67 win in the Dunn Center, Saturday.
Clarksville, TN – It was at times the free-wheeling, run-and-gun fun that Austin Peay State University (APSU) men’s basketball team has exhibited for much of the first two seasons of head coach Matt Figger‘s tenure.

Clarksville, TN – Austin Peay State University (APSU) has announced game times for every home men and women’s basketball game for the upcoming 2019-20 year.

After shattering the school three-point record with 241 a year ago, the women’s team and head coach David Midlick returns 80 percent of those makes from a year ago, with Brandi Ferby and Brianah Ferby and Maggie Knowles set to dial long distance early and often this season.

Washington, D.C. – On May 5th, 1868, the head of an organization of Union veterans the Grand Army of the Republic (GAR) established Decoration Day as a time for the nation to decorate the graves of the war dead with flowers three years after the Civil War ended.
On May 30th, it was declared that Decoration Day should be observed by Major General John A. Logan.
It is believed that date was chosen because flowers would be in bloom all over the country.
The first large observance was held that year at Arlington National Cemetery, across the Potomac River from Washington, D.C.
