Major Filanza Starmack, G33 deputy chief of operations, Headquarters and Headquarters Battalion, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault), was recognized Oct. 8 during Austin Peay State University’s Homecoming Military Alumni Chapter Dinner for her achievements in military service.

It looks like another pretty nice week of autumn weather across our area with only one day later in the week bringing a chance of showers. High temperatures will mostly range from the upper 60s to low 70s. Temperatures dropped as low as 33 degrees in parts of the Midstate on Sunday morning, but I don’t see anything that cold this week.

Darren Laver, a former professional soccer player with Southampton in England, led the outdoor pop-up event. Laver and another coach, Chad Jerrell, set about getting the field ready with inflatable arenas to contain small matches. After dividing the children into teams relative to age groups, Laver blew the whistle, turned up the music and let the matches begin.
