Cape Central High Photos

Ken Steinhoff, Cape Girardeau Central High School Class of 1965, was a photographer for The Tiger and The Girardot, and was on the staff of The Capaha Arrow and The Sagamore at Southeast Missouri State University. He worked as a photographer / reporter (among other things) at The Jackson Pioneer and The Southeast Missourian.

Come here to see photos and read stories (mostly true) about coming of age in Southeast Missouri in the 1960s.

Please comment on the articles when you see I have left out a bit of history, forgotten a name or when your memory of a circumstance conflicts with mine. (My mother says her stories have improved now that more and more of the folks who could contradict her have died off.) Your information helps to make this a wonderful archive and may end up in book form.


Are You a Toadstool or a Mushroom?

Mushrooms - Indian Park 07-07-2013Mother and I were headed from Point A to Point B when I looked over at Indian Park and did an immediate U-turn. When you  can see mushroom/toadstools 75 feet away at 25 mph., it’s worth a second look.

Baseball to softball size

Mushrooms - Indian Park 07-07-2013These four guys were located together near a shade tree. There was at least one other one roughly 30 feet away. The smallest was about the size of a baseball; the biggest one was softball size. They had the general color and shape of a near-perfectly toasted marshmallow.

I’m surprised to have lived this long. I didn’t want to press my luck by nibbling on a mushroom/toadstool.

I hope I don’t get in trouble with Wife Lila for venturing into topics she normally covers in her gardening blog.
