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.

Two Steps Forward, One Back

I haven’t been goofing off the last couple of days. My sons have been doing upgrades to the server that drives this bus and moving DedicatedIT’s equipment to a better service provider in Miami. I was planning to publish photos of that move and explain some of the stuff behind the curtain that brings this blog to you.

Unfortunately, a piece of the program that resizes photos when I upload them isn’t working correctly. Son Matt, who provides tech support for the blog posted this as his Facebook status:

Post 1:Malcolm is in bed. Sarah is in Cocoa Beach this week and I’m exhausted from two late nights at the data center. If you need me, I’ll be in bed, asleep.”

Post 2: “PS: Don’t need me.”

Let’s see if we can get back in the groove Monday.

  • Of course, even with a fairly clear facebook status and knowing that I got up at 2:00am, didn’t get a nap and didn’t get to bed until 8:30pm, that didn’t stop my father, father-in-law, brother or wife from ringing my home phone often enough to wake me and the seven-year-old up. Nor did it stop them from then, when they got no answer on my home phone, calling my cellular phone. I think the last phone call I got last night was a little before 11pm.


    • I was too busy to read Facebook because I was editing photos to post. I called your home number first, as usually instructed. When I got no answer, I dialed your cell at 9:40 p.m.

      Wife Lila then brought your FB post to my attention.

      I plead not guilty to the 11 p.m. call.

      At least you’re popular.

    I think “bounce” might be the right term.
