Friday, October 22, 1993 Th Leaf-Chr onlcl, Clorktvlllo, Tonn. APSU CuooraecooTiiDinig qjyeero ifonalisfs cCnoseim era new apipDficaftSora process Obituaries Five finalists have been selected for Homecoming (juecn at Austin Peay State University, using a new process of application, interview-ing and a campus-wide election , The Student Government Association agreed to review the I lome-coming voting process after the African American Student Association held a sit-in during the spring semester. "The Student Government Association has been very responsive," said Dr. Phillip Wcast, vice president of Student Affairs at APSU. In the past, the campus voted on applicants and a Homecoming committee selected the queen from among the top five vote-getters. This year, the 16 applicants submitted to interviews with a committee of faculty, staff and community members and the group selected five finalists to compete in elec tions. "This process is more tedious," said SGA president Kcri Mdnnis. "This way , you have hours of interviews first but it gives lesser-known candidates who are not sponsored by a large organization a better chance to be recognized by the student body in the elections." A student forum in the Universi-ty Center also gives students a chance to meet the candidates and hear their views on campus issues. About ISO students showed up Wednesday to quiz the candidates. "Homecoming has a lot of changes this year," Miss Mdnnis said, explaining that organizations won't be able to collaborate on floats this year and Color Wars has become more of a decorating competition. "But, like other Homecomings, it will still be a time for students to show their school spirit Police search for elusive driver Police are looking for a motorist who led them on a chase Wednesday after he tried to back over a North Clarksville man who had chastised him for speeding down a residential street. ' According to Officer James Eure, the driver of a 1982 green Buick will be charged with aggravated assault, possession of a stolen gun and evading arrest when found. Police are not releasing the name of the suspect. . The driver reportedly ran a stop, sign as he sped down E Street Wednesday night, prompting resident Edward Moreno to shout at him about his driving. Moreno was walking on the shoulder of the road. The driver then backed the car up, knocking Moreno down, and drove away. ' '.-' Moreno told Eure, who arrived moments later, he did not want to be taken to the hospital. As the officer then began questioning him about the incident, Moreno looked up, pointed to a car headed down the street without lights and said it was the one that had tried to run him over. r . 1 Eure pursued the vehicle through the North Clarksville area. The driver finally came to a stop in Sunny dale Mobile Home Park, jumped out of his car and ran into a nearby wooded area. Eure lost him during the chase. A K-9 unit was called and tracked the suspect through the woods back into Sunnydale, but lost the trail before the man was found. .- Eure said he found a loaded .38-caliber handgun on the front seat of the car. The gun had been reported stolen from a man who works in the Montgomery County Jail as a deputy jailer, Eure said. No Injuries occur In car, school bus collision A Wobdlawn woman crashed into a school bus after running a stop sign at the intersection of Melinda and Collinwood drives Thursday afternoon. ' - Tandy Lea Dales Parrish, 35, was headed west on Melinda Drive when she ignored a stop sign and hit the right side of a school bus that was headed north on Collinwood.

(AP) The state Alcoholic Beverage Commission approved a new regulation Thursday allowing liquor stores to sell liquor packaged with soft drinks and other nonalcoholic food products and beverages. The rule was requested by Tennessee liquor wholesalers, who argued that they have had to add alcohol to nonalcoholic products to comply with current packaging regulations. ' . Those rules require all consumable goods sold in liquor stores to contain alcohol. The new regulation must be reviewed by the state attorney general's office before taking effect. Liquor dealers have been permit-, ted since 1983 to package non-food items with alcoholic beverages, provided the items do not have a greater value than the beverage. Used mainly in the Christmas season, the packages have included such things as shot glasses, brandy snifters, belt buckles, T-shirts and recipe books. But food and beverages could be included only if they, contained alcohol.
