Au fait with everything Pixar, animated movies and movie scores, Lindsey’s dream career is to be a voice actor, yet as she awaits her big break, she hopes to snatch a job in radio journalism and on-air hosting as a young adult. Or for the rest of her life.

I’m here with Candice Davis from the Missouri Department of Conservation, and over the past decade she says that the Missouri Department of Conservation has seen a rise in the black bear population, which is giving them the opportunity to do some research. Tell me about it Candice.

Last night, the Cape Girardeau Neighborhood Development Initiative held a community meeting at Shawnee Park Center to improve Cape Girardeau’s Southside. Residents brainstormed and gave feedback to city officials and the non-profit organization, Authentic Voices, on their experiences living in Ward 2, and what changes they want to see.

 

South Cape resident Shelly Moore said she wants Cape Girardeau to become one, especially for the well-being of the youth.

March weather is making its way through the Midwest, leaving residents to plan for their safety. If you’re worried about where to go during a severe storm, a tornado safe room in Jackson is there to help.

 

Constructed in 2016, the Jackson Civic Center tornado safe room is designed to hold 1,190 people and to withstand an EF-5 blast of wind, approximately 250 mph. Jackson Parks and Recreation director Shane Anderson says that when a tornado watch is issued, the safe room is opened and available to the public.

Today, the world premiere of a choral and orchestral piece will be performed at Southeast’s River Campus, marking their ten year anniversary. Composer and Cape Girardeau native, Dr. Gordon Goodwin captured the essence of what used to be St. Vincent's Seminary and emphasizes the role the Mississippi River plays in his piece “Timeless Banks and Shoals.” KRCU's Lindsey Grojean talked with Dr. Goodwin about the powerful composition, and his musical experiences during childhood and throughout his life as a teacher.

 

Tuesday night, a tornado ripped through the northwest corner of the city of Perryville. Warning sirens shook residents out of their beds, and winds ripped houses off of their foundations. With a path of 13 miles, the storm caused more than 10 injuries, 1 fatality, and over 60 families lost nearly all of their belongings. The main damage was on Moore Drive, north on U.S. 61.

During a press conference on Wednesday, Perryville Mayor Ken Baer first addressed the storm damage by giving thoughts and prayers out to families.
