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.

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.

The Missouri Governor’s Mansion, the home to Missouri Governors since 1871, has begun decking its halls for the Christmas season.

 

Eight trees arrived at the Mansion on Monday, November 27, including a 30-foot Norway Spruce that is showcased outside. Five 7-foot white pines are scattered throughout the first floor, with a 10-foot pine on the back porch, and an 18-foot Norway Spruce near the staircase. Indoor trees were acquired from Pea Ridge Forest near Hermann, Missouri, and the 30-foot outdoor spruce was donated by a couple near Canton, Missouri.

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.
