Host - KRCU Morning Edition, Producer

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, gardening, and painting. You can see her perform with the Jazz ensembles at Southeast’s River Campus. 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.


Longtime bass guitarist Kerry Turman for the R&B group the Temptations died over the weekend in his hotel room after a performance in Cape Girardeau. The group alongside the Beach Boys performed at the Show-Me-Center for their “Surf ‘n Soul” tour. Cape Girardeau County coroner John Clifton said he was called to Candlewood Suites early Sunday morning.

“The gentleman was dead, and was on the floor," said Clifton. "He’d been placed there by first responders. Apparently everything was natural, as far as the death. It was heart failure.”

Cape Girardeau Public Library


It’s Money Smart week, and the Cape Girardeau Public Library has millennials in mind. Tonight they’re kicking off their "Adulting 101" class series, focusing on the topic of financial planning. Adult services program coordinator Whitney Vandeven said this class encourages financial literacy for young adults.

“I have a financial advisor coming in to talk about the basics, so budgeting, financial planning, and getting people to start thinking about the future," Vandeven said. "So ways to save money and ways to achieve financial security."

Parks and Recreation Department, City of Cape Girardeau

This Saturday is Earth Day, and the Cape Girardeau Parks and Recreation Department will be hosting its annual Friends of the Parks Day and Great Cape Cleanup. Parks Division Manager, Brock Davis, says they’ll be beautifying the entire city, come rain or shine.


Brock explained, “Our central location is Capaha Park; that’s where a lot of our projects will be hosted. We do projects on Broadway, downtown, we’ll be scattered all the way to the Jaycee golf course, the Osage Center, Cape Splash, pretty much all over.”
