  • The Capaha Arrow, the campus newspaper, tuned 100 in 2011, even though its name was changed to The Arrow.

    Chief Sagamore was banished, a victim of political correctness, and the The Sagamore yearbook had its plug pulled by the university in 1989, just 23 years from its centennial.

    Here's a look back.

  • There was a casual dining restaurant in Sikeston called The War Drum. It had car service and was a local high school hangout in the '60's. In front of the restaurant on Malone Ave. was the large Indian referenced in the article.

    Lambert's Cafe moved from it's original site sometime in the mid '80's. Norman Lambert acquired the War Drum in which to put his rapidly expanding business in, but had no use for the huge plastic Indian, which could not be taught to throw rolls. A donation to Southeast Missouri State University of the uncooperative statue allowed Norman to catch a nice tax deduction and get the plastic statue hauled off for free.

    Just because you talk like a good ole boy doesn't mean you're not smart.
