It’s Money Smart week, and the Cape Girardeau Public Library has millennials in mind. Tonight they’re kicking off their "Adulting 101" class series, focusing on the topic of financial planning. Adult services program coordinator Whitney Vandeven said this class encourages financial literacy for young adults.

“I have a financial advisor coming in to talk about the basics, so budgeting, financial planning, and getting people to start thinking about the future," Vandeven said. "So ways to save money and ways to achieve financial security."

The Missouri Department of Conservation says it’s important for people to know how to keep bears wild.

Black bears are native to Missouri, which means they belong in our wild spaces like forests. Because bears are exciting to see, sometimes people want to get a closer look at them by feeding them or getting closer to them. The Missouri Department of Conservation says this is not a good idea as this can lead to conflicts between bears and people, especially in the spring when bears come out of hibernation and are very hungry.
