The Haunted Downtown Tours of Cape Girardeau will take place throughout the month of October.

For over five years, these tours have brought the tales of Cape’s past to the present.  From haunted buildings to Civil War ghosts, the downtown area continues to intrigue crowds.

Christy Mershon is the Assistant Director of Extended and Continuing Education at Southeast Missouri State University as well as a Haunted Tour leader.

She says over the years, the interest in local ghost stories has grown rapidly.

The St. Louis Cardinals pounded pitcher Jordan Zimmerman and the Washington Nationals Monday afternoon 12 to 4 to even the League Division Series at one game apiece.

The Cardinals strafed Zimmerman for five runs in the game’s first three innings. They continued to pile on against the Nationals’ bullpen.

The Cardinals attack was fueled by the long ball. Allen Craig and Daniel Descalso hit home runs early in the game to give the Redbirds the lead, while Carlos Beltran clobbered two long homes late to put the contest out of reach.

Southeast Missouri State University’s student radio station RAGE 103.7 celebrated national College Radio Day with a unique holiday. Using a homemade trebuchet, the RAGE staff held their own Punkin Chunkin contest on campus.

Luke Lukefar is the technician for RAGE studios. Inspired by a high school engineering project, Lukefar built the trebuchet himself. Originally used to catapult missiles in medieval warfare, these machines are now engineered for more recreational use.
