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.

A ribbon cutting ceremony took place at the Humane Society of Southeast Missouri on Tuesday to celebrate the opening of their new isolation care unit. The new building functions as a quarantined space for sick animals undergoing treatment, while keeping healthy animals at the main shelter protected from incoming disease.

 

Charlotte Craig, Board President at the Humane Society, says since they don’t know what strays have been exposed to before they come into their care, they now can prepare for the instance of a serious illness.

"The City of Cape Girardeau" Facebook Page (satirical page)

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. But there’s a catch; it’s not run by the city of Cape Girardeau and the posts on the page aren’t real either...  It’s a satire page. One post that resonated with many people in August went a little something like this:

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. But on Tuesday, the Jackson School Board voted unanimously for the school district to cover the cost of assessment for all Jackson 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.

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.
