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.


Slow-Moving Golfer

Ridge Road - Jackson - Mailbox 08-09-2014Mother and I were on one of our usual left-and-right, up-and-down, no-destination-in-mind rambles when we ended up on Jackson’s aptly named Ridge Road. It turned out to be a picture-rich road that you’ll be seeing more of.

We had just passed the Bent Creek Golf Course, and I must have been looking hard to the right or in the mirror when my peripheral vision caught a pedestrian on the left side of the road. I slowed and started to wave him across when I noticed that this guy was NOT going to cross the street anytime soon.
