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.

Son Matt found this character a few years back. He seemed to be a good illustration for a review I did on my bike blog for a combination handlebar bag / MP3 amplified speaker gizmo. The Audible Rush Jam-Pac Premium handlebar bag is a lot lighter than Craven’s trailer-mounted blasters.

Its relevance to Cape is slim, but following the link will give you something to read while I’m focusing on other stuff for awhile.

I spent most of the past 24 hours trying to track down a malware infection that I was afraid was causing bad links to show up on the blog. It turned out that the problem wasn’t with my site: my browsers were infected with a program that would cause phrases in it to be highlighted like they were legitimate links. If you clicked on a question mark at the bottom of the graphic ad they displayed, they’d take you to a site called “text enhance.” So, basically, you couldn’t tell if a link in a story was legit or if it was going to send you off someplace of dubious value or safety.

They came in hidden on a driver I needed to play a video file, but they piggyback on a variety of browser plugins (don’t, for example, install something that claims to give you a “Don’t Like” button in Facebook).

I actually have a Cape story in the works that I think folks will like.

If anybody else is having that problem, shoot me an email and I’ll tell you what to look for to get rid of the varmint.
