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.

When we hear a musical performance by ourselves or someone we know, it’s undeniable that we’re a bit more connected to the piece than if it were someone we did not know. We pay the utmost attention to every detail, and depending on how well we know the performer, to us, their personality may manifest itself in the music they make. Our classical music shows here on KRCU are usually filled with recordings of wonderful artists from around the world: Yo-Yo Ma, Anna Netrebko, Claudio Arreau, you name them.

Cape Girardeau County Clerk's Office

The Cape Girardeau County Clerk’s Office has announced the winner of their “I Voted” sticker design contest. From Sept. 1 through Oct. 31, all high school students in Cape Girardeau County were eligible to submit artwork for a new “I Voted” sticker for 2018/2019 elections in the county.

 

A panel of judges picked four finalists, who were then voted on by the public with an online survey. Lydia Riehn of Jackson High School came up with the winning design, and Emily Landewe and Kourtney Ruggeri of Delta High School were the runners up.

On Friday, city officials, community members, fire department retirees, and current fire department employees gathered at the Cape Girardeau Fire Department’s new Fire Station No. 4 for a dedication ceremony.

 

Thanks to voter approval of a fire sales tax and public safety trust fund in 2014, the fire department was able to move forward with multiple facility projects across the city this year, including the new station on Lexington Avenue.

The Cape Girardeau Regional Airport celebrated their first flight to Chicago on Friday, Dec. 1 with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. In August, the U.S. Department of Transportation approved SkyWest, a United Express airline, as the new air carrier to provide service to the airport, ending an eight year contract with Cape Air.

 

Airport manager Bruce Loy gave his last thank you to the previous carrier, saying they were an incredible partner in making that moment possible.

 

City of Perryville

The City of Perryville is known for its economic health, especially considering their rural location. Generally full employment is considered to be around 5%, and the unemployment rate there is around 3%. Many companies are headquartered in the city, and many people work there. But there aren’t a lot of places for them to live within city limits, especially homes that would work for a single family. During the day, the population increases by around 40 percent, which indicates that people are probably making a hefty commute to get to work.
