Southeast Missouri State University

It seems like Almost Yesterday that Southeast Missouri State Teacher’s College became a pioneer in radio broadcasting. With 200 watts of power and a wave length of 360 meters, WSAB went on the air on Tuesday, March 27, 1923.

Car enthusiasts and fans of classic cars are sure to be interested in the Smith Summer Classic Car Auction, coming to the Show Me Center on July 20th and 21. Vehicles on the auction block range from a 1929 Ford Model a Phaeton to a 1988 Jaguar XJS – with lots of retro vehicles in between. You’ll even have the opportunity to get eastbound and down with a 1977 Pontiac Trans Am, similar to the one Burt Reynolds drove in “Smokey and the Bandit.”

Though Southeast Missouri's muggy summer climate may occasionally test it, I've always held the conviction that there's something special about alfresco dining. Whereas Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin, one of the high priests of gastronomy, put it, the universe is your drawing room and the sun your lamp.

Perhaps it's because the great outdoors enhances the appetite and produces, as Brillat-Savarin observed, "a vivacity unknown indoors." Whatever the reason, I don't think I've ever been to a picnic I didn't enjoy, even if, the affair ended in rain.

Cape Chamber

Each year, less than 20% of Southeast Missouri State University graduates will live and work in the Cape Girardeau area.

In addition, many students graduate with very limited experience in their chosen profession. In a world where a capable and trained workforce is the key to area growth, this is not desired information. Thanks to a partnership between the Chamber and Southeast Missouri State University, this issue is being addressed.
