Austin Peay State University has been named one of the nation’s top military friendly schools.
APSU received that distinction by the Military Advanced Education magazine in the publication's 2013 Guide to America’s Top Military-Friendly Colleges & Universities.
Officials say the magazine, which has been in publication since 2005, provides information for military education service officers, transition officers and other top-level commands who work closely with service members, veterans and their families during active duty, transition and post-transition to optimize their armed forces educational benefits.
APSU is one of six schools in Tennessee to make the Top Military-Friendly list and was also recognized by GI Jobs magazine on its 2013 Military Friendly list and by Military Times magazine in its "2013 Best for Vets" ranking.
Ashley Judd has yet to formally announce whether she plans to run against Senator Mitch McConnell next year, but some of her potential political rivals aren't wasting any time trying to derail those plans.
American Crossroads, the Super PAC launched by Republican strategist Karl Rove, has launched a new attack ad against the Hollywood actress.
Judd's name has cropped up as a possible Democratic challenger for Kentucky’s senior Senator, but Rove's attack ad suggests the University of Kentucky and Harvard grad has no experience. The ad quotes Judd's public remarks in which she has called herself "delightfully radical" and committed to going wherever President Obama wants her to. It also highlights her description of herself as a resident of Tennessee with the suggestion that she is out of touch with Kentucky politics.
The severe weather and tornado outbreak the area experienced last week may not have been exactly normal for the wee hours of a late January morning, but it’s more common than you might think.
Christian County native and National Weather Service in Paducah Warning Meteorologist Rick Shanklin says this region has unfortunately become somewhat of a “Nocturnal Tornado Alley” over the years.
A vast majority of the injuries and fatalities caused by tornadoes in the Paducah office coverage area have been in the overnight hours, which is good reason for everyone to have some way to be notified of warnings at any time of the day or night.
No one was injured in last week’s severe weather outbreak, but several homes were damaged in Christian, Muhlenberg and Todd Counties.

Senate President Robert Stivers, R-Manchester (center) welcomes Gov. Steve Beshear to a joint session of the Kentucky General Assembly for the governor's State of the Commonwealth Address as House Speaker Greg Stumbo, D-Prestonsburg, looks on.
There was a mixed reaction among local lawmakers about parts of Governor Steve Beshear’s State of the Commonwealth Address.
Republican Ninth District State Representative Myron Dossett says he hopes the governor tying tax reform and pension system reform together doesn’t make a recipe for an increase in taxes somewhere as that is something he doesn’t support.
Democrat Representative John Tilley says the Governor is correct to tie the two items together, as one without the other leaves the pension system under funded.
Republican State Senator Whitney Westerfield said he was somewhat disappointed with the Governor’s approach, saying the taxpayers weren’t the ones who created the pension system problems in the first place.
