The program will celebrate its 30th anniversary next year and was founded by Constantine Curris, Chad Stewart and James Booth in This faculty member is the voice of the collective faculty members within the administrative governing body. President Randy Dunn said Rose is committed to being the best representative for the faculty. Jay Morgan, one of the current associate provosts, had originally filled the position as Faculty Regent, but was appointed to associate provost after the election and could no longer sit on the board as the Faculty Regent.
Rose said the election process consisted of acquiring 20 faculty signatures and then turning in an application to the Office of the Provost. The voters in this election consisted of assistant professors, associate professors, professors and instructors. Rose said there were four faculty members running, including him. The two members with the majority of the votes then held a run off and Rose said he won nearly 2: Rose said his interest in the position of Faculty Regent stemmed from his desire to help students.
Also, the overall health and welfare of the entire institution has to be a major consideration, within that particular consideration — you have the welfare of the student, faculty and staff. Rose said one of the big items he has tried to address to the Board of Regents is the salary roster for Murray State faculty members and the staff.
He said he, President Randy Dunn, Phil Schooley, the Staff Regent and Jeremiah Johnson, the Student Regent have worked diligently in an effort to get the compensation level for faculty and staff at a rate which compares well with other universities in Kentucky, Illinois and Tennessee.

He said the reason an appropriate salary is an item he fights for, is because without the faculty and staff there would be no University. He also said the University needs to make compensation a priority so the faculty and staff will be encouraged to stay, and that an increase would help in recruiting better faculty and staff. Jonathan Ferris Assistant Editor: With the memory of a season for the ages still fresh in their minds, the Racers are putting the past behind them and focusing on a new team and a new season.
Racers put expectations aside, set sights on season Jonathan Ferris Sports Editor jferris2 murraystate. Boasting six freshmen and six seniors, the Racers will work to develop a style of play that incorporates both their new faces and seasoned veterans. Ford from Fayetteville, N. With senior forward Latreze Mushatt expected to miss most of the season with an Achilles injury, and considerable speculation surrounding the future of sophomore guard Zay Jackson after his September arrest, Prohm will rely heavily on the six freshmen. The team will host Racer Madness, which serves to excite the fan base and introduce the new team.
Racer Madness is going to get the buzz going and we want at least 5, there that night to fill the lower bowl. The basketball team will host Racer Madness at 9: The Racers will play an exhibition at home, against Freed-Hardeman on Nov. His presence may bring needed leadership to a team with six freshmen, several of whom could play significant minutes as a result of injury and the graduating seniors. With every passing day with no agreements being made and more and more players going overseas, my heart drops.
Preseason games have already been canceled and at the rate Jaci Kohn things are going, it looks Assistant Sports like we might be missing Editor actual games. So instead of downing a pint of ice cream and focusing on the sad reality of the upcoming hockey season, I am going to take you back to one of my happiest moments in hockey — other than the time my favorite team won the Stanley Cup — when my dad took me to my first Chicago Blackhawks game.
I was a bandwagon fan. I never even thought of hockey until some of my friends at school started talking about how good the Hawks were playing. As I was a huge fan of Chicago sports teams, I thought I should probably watch a game to see what all the hype was about. So my dad and I sat down to watch a game, and the rest was history. The game was so intense. In that moment I became obsessed with the Blackhawks, partially due to one of the Hawks players.
Left wing Patrick Kane. I am pretty much in love with him; I just thought I would throw that out there. But in all seriousness, this sport was unlike any other I had ever watched. I attended my first Blackhawks game in I had been begging my dad to find some tickets for months.
I think I finally annoyed him enough so that he bought us tickets just to shut me up. They were playing the Nashville Predators. I remember being so excited to see my favorite players, especially Kane, in real life. I had been to the United Center before for numerous Chicago Bulls games, however the atmosphere was completely diferent this time. I have always heard that the fans go crazy at the hockey games, but I was not prepared for how intense the Chicago fans were.
Сведения о продавце
From the minute I stepped into the arena there was cheering, and this was at least an hour before the game. When the players finally took to the ice, the sound was deafening. My favorite part of the whole experience was the National Anthem. At Hawks games the crowd stands up and cheers throughout the entire song and it is only sung by Jim Cornelison. I seriously had goose bumps during the anthem.
Hockey may be a sport associated with Canada, but Chicago has deemed it as theirs. The game finally started and it was crazy. I thought watching the game on TV was entertaining, but seeing it played live is a whole other experience. The crowd almost never sat down or let up. When the Blackhawks scored their first goal, and every other goal after that, the arena went insane.
Simply put, it was awesome. The team ended up beating the Preds six to three, making the night all the better. Sadly, I have yet to go to another game since my first one, but I know the atmosphere will still be the same. Something like that does not change. It may have taken a trip on the band wagon to make me a hockey fan, which to most is not something to be proud of, but I am glad I took that ride. If I had not, I would not have been able to cheer along with all the other crazy Chicago fans. After a trying first weekend at home, the Racer Volleyball team is well-prepared for a difficult season.
Murray State gained a win in its first home game against Tennessee Tech late last week.

Lelm had 12 kills and zero errors out of 19 total attempts, leaving her with a high. Havili had 54 assists out of 55 total for the team.

Her goal came in the 69th minute as she took a shot from 25 yards out and beat the keeper in the upper right corner. Her goal gave the Racers their third consecutive win, a first road win and broke a two-game losing streak against AustinPeay. It was great to see Veronika get another goal and really pleased to get the shutout on a very good attacking Austin Peay team. Freshman goalkeeper Latesha Stevenson recorded her third straight shutout win, saving six shots.
It has been great to have three shutouts in a row and we will be pushing them to continue training and working hard. Pinkman has played in all. Although the team has started hitting their stride on both sides of the ball, they will face the two toughest teams in the OVC, according to a preseason poll, in Southeast Missouri State University and University of Tennessee-Martin in their next two games.

Several Murray State students from both the main campus and the Paducah extended campus ditched their books for life jackets last Saturday and competed in a rather unordinary event on the river in Paducah, Ky. The event was run by a Canadian company that puts dragon boat races together in several different areas.
Twenty-five teams participated, paddling rowing boats with dragon heads attached to the front down a foot course. Each boat was manned by a crew of approximately 20 people. Several of the students on the Murray State team are members of the rowing club team. While the rowing students initially worried about the difference between the race boats they are used to and the unusual dragon boats used on Saturday, the team was able to take advantage of a safety instruction session and a few practice sessions.
They were able to easily overcome the differences in style and came home with a first place finish. In addition, the team set a new world record, completing the course in A good sports movie, in my humble opinion, often has climactic action, dramatic, heart-stopping music, unique characters and a lesson learned by the time the credits roll.

Up midway through the third quarter, it seemed the Racers had the game pretty well cinched up.
However, the Eastern Illinois Panthers , OVC saw things a little differently, forcing overtime and eventually defeating Murray State on a gutsy two-point conversion to seal the victory Sept. With a school record-tying five field goals from freshman kicker Jordan Benton, the Racers , OVC exchanged touchdowns for kicks in the second half as the Panthers climbed back into the game behind the play of junior wideout Erik Lora.
Lora caught an OVC-record 21 passes for yards and three touchdowns, while junior Racer receiver Walter Powell was once again the sure hands for senior quarterback Casey Brockman, catching 13 passes for yards. With both teams using up-tempo offenses and a balance of run and pass, the four-hour game had 1, yards of offense with the Racers grinding out almost yards in the loss.
Lora converted a short throw over the goal line for the conversion and the win. Kicked off the University of Tennessee football team for failed drug tests and violating team rules, Rogers elected to stay in-state and continue his college football career with the Golden Eagles 22, OVC. He finished last year an all-SEC recipient, with 67 catches for 1, yards for the Volunteers.

The most important thing is to be able to pick it up and throw it, hit it or catch it. A lot of them have not spent much time in the weight room and we work really hard in the weight room. They came back ready to go and that is important. I know we are going to have good veteran leadership. They went against OVC teams, good for a ninthplace finish in the conference. Everything is going well for the team. They are just hoping for good weather so they can continue to prepare.
We will see how they will handle things a few weeks into it and see if they are still as energetic, hopefully they will be. They are working very hard. We will know a lot more at the end of the fall with some of the adjustments some of the guys make, how good we are going to be. They finished the season ninth in the OVC.
McDonald said every year they feel like they have a chance to make the tournament. However they are not looking that far ahead right now. Senior right-hand pitcher Will Handlin is looking forward to competing and having the camaraderie with his teammates. This year, however, Handlin said they have improved their depth. So there is a lot of competition. The fact that we won the top academic award and the top sportsmanship award in the same year, I am proud of our guys and of our program.

We have three really solid seniors and a good group of freshmen with Preston leading the way. I think him playing. Included on that list is Jacksonville State University, who are top OVC competitors, and tapped into an enormity of success last season.

Instead of relying on the rhythm-reliant folk band takeoff, it seemed as though the amps were turned up almost a tad too high with this song.
That abrasive start eventually wears off, leading to a beautiful bridge slightly before the halfway mark on the track, and a few well-placed shouts between band members, who have, since the first album, considerably added to their instrumental resumes.
