Stan Musial, one of baseball's greatest hitters and a Hall of Famer with the St. Louis Cardinals for more than two decades, died over the weekend at the age of 92. Musial had one of the most storied careers in Major League history.

Stan the Man, as Musial was affectionately called by Cardinals fans, played his whole career in St. Louis.

Musial was inducted into the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame in 1969. There are only three players with more career hits.

Stones Throw

In 2006 J Dilla released Donuts, a staple of underground hip hop and a crowning achievement of west coast left-field label Stones Throw. This week it’s been reissued as a box set of eight 7-inch 45’s, in other words it’s literally a box of donuts. 

The Mile High Gliding facility at the Boulder Airport in Colorado is one of Carol Fiore's favorite haunts. And it's a perfect day for flying: clear, breezy and with a gorgeous view of the Rocky Mountains.

Fiore used to fly gliders regularly, but a few years ago she stopped. Flying them had become painful.

"I felt, in a way, that I was searching for something that wasn't there," Fiore says. "I was looking for that laughter and that incredible time that I had flying with Eric, and he wasn't in the plane with me. I was by myself."

The silent comedy-action classic “The General” – starring Buster Keaton is coming to Mineral Area College. The film is considered one of the greatest train films of all time.

The showing of the film is being hosted by the Mineral Area Council on the Arts (MACOA). Director Roxanne Cummings says the film is an action movie that also features a love story. It is set during the Civil War where a southern train ("The General) is stolen by the northern army and Keaton's character spends the movie trying to get the train back.

Cape Girardeau is the city where the river turns a thousand tales and to go along with that theme, Cape Girardeau will once again host two renowned storytellers.

Cape Girardeau has hosted storytellers for five years now and in 2013, organizers are taking a different approach to the storytelling events to fit the busy schedules of those that would like to attend.
