The Cape Girardeau County clerk’s office is making an effort to boost the interest of high school students in the voting process. Students in 9th through 12th grade have until 5 p.m. on Oct. 31 to submit design ideas in a contest for the new Cape Girardeau County “I Voted” sticker.

Supervisor of elections, Allen Seabaugh, says they were contacted during last fall’s presidential election by a Jackson R-2 school district teacher who got her students interested by putting a creative and educational twist on the “I Voted” sticker.

It seems like Almost Yesterday that Warren Eastman Hearnes became governor of Missouri. Born in Moline, Illinois, on July 24, 1923, Hearnes grew up in Charleston, Missouri, the county seat of Mississippi County, a place he called home for the remainder of his life.

While in high school he determined that he wanted to attend West Point in pursuit of a military career. The desired appointment was received and he graduated from the academy in the class of 1946. In 1947, Hearnes married his high school sweetheart, Betty Cooper, a minister’s daughter.

How about the chance to learn more about what the passion you are pursuing internationally? That’s just what some Southeast music majors did this summer.

You can hear more from them this season, just visit RiverCampus.org for a full calendar of events. I hope to see you soon at the Box Office!
