On the January edition of “Middle Tennessee Record” Tom Tozer and Ashley Ball pick their favorite stories from 2006. Ten stories will be reviewed and updated. The discovery of the exact location of Alvin York’s heroic action in World War I is first on the list, followed by an update of our story about helmet liners for Marines in Iraq. Fred Belton’s visit to a volcano in Tanzania and Clare Bratten’s visit to Kurdistan round out segment one. In the second segment the program takes a close up view of the Naked Sky Observatory, the replica of Ben Franklin’s printing press and an underwater treadmill. In the final segment, Bob Womack talks about a famous horse that’s buried near the Tennessee Miller Coliseum. The program remembers two MTSU giants who passed away in 2006, and it concludes on a lighter note with a look at a dog gone good foot race. Music by alumna Annie Sellick concludes the January retrospective.
