Over 25 people were filmed and interviewed by the Friends group, but Clean Cut used only four of them in this short introductory film. Cathy Lee and Jason Bagget were on hand  to meet those attending this event.

A few years ago Friends of Dunbar Cave made an agreement with Cathy Lee of Clean Cut Productions at Austin Peay, to make a short introductory film for the park. In exchange for a scholarship donation, Clean Cut took on the job of producing an 8 to 15 minute film about Dunbar Cave, the kind of film that someone coming to the park can watch to get an idea of the wondrous place he/she has entered onto.

A video used to be embedded here but the service that it was hosted on has shut down.

APSU Education Center to open on Fort Campbell

February 13, 2009

Austin Peay State University will celebrate the opening of the new Austin Peay Center @ Fort Campbell education facility next month.


Architectural rendering of APSU Education Center at Fort Campbell

APSU faculty, staff and students are invited to attend the grand opening at 9 a.m., Wednesday, March 18 at the new classroom/office building across the street from the SSG Glenn H. English Jr. Army Education Center, Bastogne Avenue, Fort Campbell, Ky.

Several dignitaries, members of the Fort Campbell command group and APSU officials will be present for the ceremony.

If your vehicle is not registered on post, you will need to obtain a visitor’s pass from the welcome/registration center inside Gate 4. For the pass, you will need your driver’s license, proof of insurance and vehicle registration. The process will take approximately 45 minutes, so allow yourself time.

To get to the new Austin Peay Center @ Fort Campbell, travel on Fort Campbell Boulevard. Enter Gate 3 (Air Assault Street). Turn right at first traffic light onto Bastogne Avenue. On the right-hand side is the new facility.

The project, approved by the State Building Commission in 2007, is unique in that, as far as can be determined, it marks the only time in history a state university has been granted permission to build an educational facility on federal property through a 25-year, long-term land lease with the U.S. Army, with an option to renew for an additional 25 years.

At the English Education Center, APSU—which has the highest enrollment of the four institutions offering classes on post—had filled to capacity all of its available classroom seats.

Although APSU will use the same number of rooms in the English Education Center, the new facility will provide six additional classrooms, laboratory space and faculty offices.

Architects with Rufus Johnson Associates designed the new $3.4 million building. The University paid for the construction with bonds from the Tennessee State School Bond Authority. A&K Construction, Paducah, Ky., built the facility.

Storm, high winds batter Clarksville

February 12, 2009

Repairing a power line severed by flying metal roofing

Clarksville Department of Electricity and Street Department crews are continuing the work of cleaning up and restoring power after a hefty line of storms and high winds swept through Middle Tennessee.

After repairing primary lines and transformers, crews are now working to restore power to individual homes and businesses affected by the storm.  That work should be completed by Friday.

A line of severe weather  slammed into Clarksville Wednesday with a mix of brief but torrential rain and winds in excess of 60 mph, causing widely scattered power outages, downed tree limbs and some structural damage.

In downtown Clarksville, Street Department crews in wet weather gear worked to clear a fallen tree from College Street even as winds continued to howl and rip roofing shingles off the “Biscuit Company” building. Throughout the downtown area smaller branches were riding the winds, and traffic lights and street signs were battered and bent. In some areas, roofing shingles were fluttering like flags and being ripped from rooftops. Several globes on some of the city’s ornate street lamps off College Street were shattered. A stockade fence was partially blown down.  At the Goble Law Firm, awnings on both sides of the building were shredded. [Read more]

February 9, 2009

used-toysAugust 14th, 2008, former President George Bush signed and set in motion The Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008.  This Act was brought about by the large amount of recalled toys and baby products in the year 2007.

The CPSIA calls for any children’s product exceeding the amount of 600-ppm (parts per million) lead content cannot be sold in the United States.  Items that fall under this Act are children’s toys, cribs, pacifiers, children’s jewelry, baby bouncer seats, walkers and jumpers. Any product that can be mouthed, or ingested by a child under the age of twelve must be tested for safety.

This Act will begin today. One year following this date the lead count will drop to a strict 300-ppm, then continues down to 100 ppm. This law will also prohibit against children’s items containing PVC (polyvinyl chloride ) and the chemical phthalate. [Read more]
