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.

Southeast Missouri State University has canceled all classes today after a campus-wide power outage early this morning. Facility management is currently working to restore power. The Campus Health Clinic, Kent Library and the Southeast Bookstore will remain closed today. All shuttles will run as planned. University officials say this will not affect off-campus or river campus events scheduled this evening and over the weekend.

Tonight, Notre Dame Regional High School will be opening their musical weekend with the Stephen Sondheim classic: “Into the Woods.” Adapted from the book with the same name, the show is known for its whimsical inclusion and crossing of storybook characters from the Brothers Grimm.

While the plot line is pretty goofy, the students involved have learned about themselves, and the harsh reality of getting what you want. It starts off like most fairy tales, but that’s where the normalcy ends.

 

Earlier this week, Missouri Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft announced the Cape Girardeau Public Library will be one of 89 libraries receiving a grant to boost its summer reading program. The Summer Reading Club will use the $14,990 grant to fine tune the nine-week program in the coming months. Cape Girardeau Public Library director Betty Martin said they hope to hire additional staff to help with several programs they offer.

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.
