Southeast displays heart in tight win (11/14/04)
This will not go down as one of the more memorable Southeast Missouri State University football seasons, but the squad -- and particularly its 18 seniors -- will certainly have fond memories of Saturday's final home game.

Students of Eckankar religion hold workshop at Cape Girardeau l (11/14/04)
About 18 years ago, Suzanne Williams of Jackson found herself looking for deeper answers to life.

Jackson and Cape city councils to consider adopting disaster p (11/14/04)
Southeast Missouri can be a dangerous place to live. The region is susceptible to tornadoes. Jackson was hit two years ago; Kelso was hit last month; a tornado in 1949 killed 21 people in Cape Girardeau. Then there's the floods. Some rise in a flash, taking people by surprise; others swell slowly over time, powerful and steady as homeowners pile sand bags around their property...
Cape's new view nearly finished (11/14/04)

School funding to be key Missouri issue (11/14/04)
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. -- With new legislators and a new governor in January, elected officials say changing the state's method of paying for public schools will be a priority next year.

Former circus trainer creates home for unwanted elephants (11/14/04)
FORDLAND, Mo. -- Murray Hill loves elephants. So much so, that he once left his family and hid out for five years with two elephants that he believed were being abused.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Why do black men look good in purple suits, while white men look like dorks? Why do so many senior citizens drive such big cars?

Election was uneventful, but officials question what's ahead (11/14/04)
WASHINGTON -- Government counterterror experts say the threat of an attack by al-Qaida remains a significant concern, perhaps even this year, although the nation safely passed the benchmark of the Nov. 2 election. The Homeland Security Department last week lowered the terror alert for the financial sector in New York, Washington and northern New Jersey that was in place for three months. But authorities still caution the possibility of an attack is just as high as it was a month ago...

Pakistan- No sign of bin Laden (11/14/04)
KARWANA MANZAI, Pakistan -- Maj. Gen. Niaz Khattak makes a bold prediction: South Waziristan -- a haven for al-Qaida-linked guerrillas -- will be pacified by the year's end.

State officials encourage hunters to limit pursuit of the almig (11/14/04)
COLUMBIA, Mo. -- As Missouri deer stalkers opened their hunting season this weekend, state officials encouraged them to go for the does -- and bypass the bucks.

Come by ours at Cape Girardeau, and I'm sure you'll come back again...
