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.

Elk’s Lake

Elk's Lake 08-09-2014I don’t know how many times Mother has said, “Turn here and go back to look at Elk’s Lake.” I’m usually on the way to someplace important like Wib’s BBQ, so I drive right past it.

On this day, though, I heeded her directions to turn off on Limbaugh Lane, just past North County Park. (It’s a right turn, not surprisingly.) After a few twists and turns, Limbaugh Lane becomes Elk Lane.

It passes Elk Lodge #639, then goes down and curves past a baseball diamond. The road is marked 10 mph, by the way.

When the view opens up, you get a whole bunch of beautiful views of Elk’s Lake.

Guess I should have listened to her years ago.
