Southeast Missouri led state in blocking Prop A (11/08/02)
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. -- Southeast Missouri voters again opposed a massive tax increase at a much higher rate than the statewide average in helping to defeat Proposition A on Tuesday.

Inspections head in Cape looks to raise reputation (11/08/02)
The perception of the Cape Girardeau city inspection services department over the years has not been a good one.

Not these two...

    Wild boars and bears, but no tigers (11/08/02)
    I'm not sure what to make of the photograph of the huge animal described as a wild boar in the weekly newspaper from my favorite hometown in the Ozarks west of here.
