Future Hall of Famer Tony La Russa talked about leadership through the prism of baseball Thursday night at the Show Me Center in Cape Girardeau. The speech was part of Southeast Missouri State University’s Speakers Series.

The Cardinals’ organization preaches respect, trust and character, La Russa said, and they are some of qualities that La Russa believes transcend leaders not only in sports but also in other professions.

The Southeast Missouri Music Academy will present its 13th annual “Standing Ovation” benefit concert at 4 p.m. Nov. 11 in the Robert F. and Gertrude L. Shuck Music Recital Hall at Southeast Missouri State University’s River Campus.

Featured vocalists from the Department of Music will be Leslie Jones and Lori Shaffer performing “Leslie and Lori Do Lerner and Loewe.” Sara Edgerton and Paul Thompson will also perform some Chinese music for cello and piano, and Patrick Rafferty will share some guitar music.

For seven generations, the Eckert family has been preparing delicious meals from foods grown on their farms. The family currently operates farms in Belleville, Millstadt and Grafton, Illinois. Eating locally grown foods is a family tradition for the Eckerts, and over the years, their collection of delicious fall recipes has grown.

It seems like Almost Yesterday that residents of Cape Girardeau gained access to important historical records of Louis Lorimier, the founder of Cape Girardeau.

Born into an important family in Montreal, Canada in 1748, Lorimer moved to the Ohio frontier and shortly before the American Revolutionary War, established a trading post on the main military route between Detroit and the Ohio Valley.
