Yesterday, a B-25 bomber nicknamed “Maid in the Shade” made its way to the Cape Girardeau Regional Airport as part of a nationwide tour by the Commemorative Air Force. It was built in 1944, and flew 15 combat missions over Italy during World War II. You'll hear from a current crewmember and two veterans who had the opportunity to take a short ride in the aircraft in this audio postcard.

As part of his statewide listening tour, Governor Mike Parson made a stop in Cape Girardeau yesterday to hear from Southeast Missouri leaders, including many farmers and local members of the Missouri Farm Bureau.

At the David M. Barton Agricultural Research Center, Parson spoke on both infrastructure and workforce development as two of his main areas of focus. But, he also took many questions regarding the lack of broadband internet in rural areas: an issue he empathized with.

Burrito-Ville is following a nationwide trend to ditch the plastic straw. The restaurant announced they’re switching to a compostable straw in an attempt to reduce their footprint on the environment.

 

500 million straws are tossed away every day in the U.S., and those plastics are breaking down into microplastics which contaminate the ocean, the air, and closer to home, the Mississippi River.

Yesterday, the city of Jackson began their annual Fire Hydrant Flow Testing Program.

Between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. daily, fire department crews will be flushing hydrants and water mains to conduct flow tests, and clear buildup that may have settled in pipes.

Although residents should refrain from using the water until their own supply clears up, Kent Peetz, public works director for the city of Jackson, says the process does not affect the safety of the water supply.
