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.

Is Winter Over?

Jonathan Creek 04-01-2014_6676I rolled into Cape Girardeau not long after dark-thirty, got the van unloaded and the computer gear set up.

On the way up, I stopped for a 17-minute nap in the first Kentucky rest area on I-24. When I got out to stretch my legs, I noticed that the trees were blooming and some flowers were popping out. Birds were chirping and some bees were making their rounds. Does that mean I dodged winter?

Boaters and fisherfolks were taking advantage of the super weather in the Land Between the Lakes area. All of us who hold our breath going over this bridge will be happy to see this construction projection finished. And, finally, I just had to pull off the road near Wickliffe to capture the sun setting over the Mississippi River bridge near Cairo.

    When the dogwoods bloom then it’s spring in Missouri…looks like it Spring is here!

    Ken, you may catch the last of old man winter. Last night in the St Louis area (we live near I-70) we had hail, sleet and severe thunder storms with more storms on the way. The temperature is starting to moderate. We too, are seeing green and buds but no blooming dogwoods or red buds yet! For my fishing friends, the word is that the crappie haven’t moved into the shallows yet!

    The bridge in photo 6 appears to be the Eggners Ferry bridge with the new one being built next to it. It carries U.S 68 from Aurora thru LBL and beyond. Just got back from KY. lake today. The weather was great at Bee Spring.
