Cape Chamber

Government, everyone’s favorite topic. OK, maybe not, but it is an important topic and one we try to stay updated on.  

Part of the chamber’s service to the business community is to build relationships with local, state and federal elected and full-time government officials. Most of the time our businesses don’t need anything from the government, but when they do, it can be really impactful on their business. Whether it’s new regulation hindering them or new proposed legislation that would make it easier for them to add jobs, it’s important for us to be there when it counts.

He’s only a sophomore, but Redhawk Denzel Mahoney has reached a major milestone last week, when he joined the SEMO Basketball 1,000 Point Club. A native of Oviedo, Florida, Mahoney surpassed the thousand-point mark last Thursday in a victory at Morehead State. In less than two seasons, he already ranks 21st in career points scored in SEMO Basketball history.

Mahoney was recognized prior to tip-off in last night’s home game against Eastern Illinois, when he was presented a commemorative game ball in celebration of the 1,000 point milestone.
