Cape Chamber

The U.S. Department of Transportation recently approved plans for SkyWest Airlines to provide air service from Cape to Chicago starting this December. 

Over the last several years, Cape Air has provided consistent commercial flights, which was a major improvement for our region. They served us well at that stage in the development of Cape Girardeau, but now it’s time to take a step forward.

It's the stuff of legend. Malibu, California, 1976, Neil Young sits down with a guitar and records an album’s worth of material, largely unheard until now.

If you live in Cape Girardeau and have a Facebook account, you might have seen a page boasting the name, “The City of Cape Girardeau.” It has the city’s seal as its profile picture, and nearly 6,000 followers and counting.

After two long road trips to start the season, the Redhawks Football team return to Houck Field tomorrow for the home opener against regional rival Southern Illinois.

There are a number of exciting promotions in store for the opener, and some new features for fans for the 2017 football season.

In July, a $4 million cut to student evaluation funding was signed by Gov. Eric Greitens, ending almost three years of state funded ACT testing for high school juniors.

Associate superintendent Matt Lacy says by providing the test, they ensure that all students take the test at least once, which could change the plans of students who receive unexpectedly high scores.
