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.

Waking Up to Snow

Athens Snow 01-24-2013The world was white when I looked out my Athens hotel room window this morning. I didn’t see the official reading, but I’m going to guess we got less than half an inch. It was a very dry snow. You can click on the photos to make them larger.

Van was covered

Athens Snow 01-24-2013

My van had an impressive covering of snow in the parking lot. The desk clerk and I explained to Friend Jan how to use a credit card to clean the ice off your windshield if you don’t have a scraper. (No, Jan, you don’t use the credit card to PAY someone to do it for you…)

Fortunately for her, the snow was so dry that the windshield wipers swiped it right off.

We didn’t make it to Cape Thursday night. We stopped at too many neat places along the way. My brain is too fried to try to post them tonight. You’ll see them in the days to come.
