Lindsey is a student at Southeast Missouri State University, studying a Bachelor of Arts in Music and a minor in Mass Communication. She spends her time discovering new music, strolling about Cape Girardeau’s antique shops, and gardening. You can see her perform with the Jazz ensembles at Southeast’s River Campus. Lindsey’s dream career is to be a voice actress. As she awaits her big break, she hopes to retain jobs in on-air hosting, DJ-ing, and performing as a young adult. Or for the rest of her life.

In spring of 2017, the Missouri Department of Transportation’s Southeast District began an environmental study on the Chester Bridge. It connects Route 51, and poses no real danger to the 6,500 vehicles that use it a day. But due to modern standards, it’s still being checked for compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act. I spoke with Buddy Desai, the consultant project manager of the study.

The largest fentanyl seizure in the state of Missouri was made in New Madrid County last week.

 

During a traffic stop and search on Nov. 1, the Missouri State Highway Patrol discovered almost five pounds of the powerful opioid drug in a suspect’s vehicle, which had been traveling northbound on Interstate 55. The driver, 27-year-old Angel Larar-Esteban of Phoenix, Arizona, was arrested for felony drug trafficking and endangering the welfare of a child.

Cape Girardeau has been declared a winning location of a grant through an American Express campaign called “Partners in Preservation: Main Streets”.

Crisp weather has arrived, which means deer season is upon us. The Missouri Department of Conservation and the Conservation Federation of Missouri are encouraging “Share the Harvest”. It’s a program which allows hunters to feed hungry Missourians with deer meat. Lindsey Grojean spoke with Russell Duckworth, the Protection Regional Supervisor at MDC about how people can hunt to help.

So tell me about the "Share the Harvest" program.

As part of the statewide U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration’s Drug Take Back Program, the Cape Girardeau Police Department will be hosting a take back event later this week. According to the DEA, the National Survey on Drug Use and Health reported that 6.4 million Americans abused prescription drugs in 2015.

 

Lieutenant over special operations at the police department, Bradley Smith says they participate in the event to protect citizens and the environment.
