Autism 'epidemic' fueled by expanding definition, special education funding (11/04/07)
ATLANTA -- A few decades ago, people probably would have said children like Ryan Massey and Eddie Scheuplein were just odd. Or difficult. Both boys are bright.

Leopold beats Osceola for third place in state (11/04/07)
WARRENSBURG, Mo. -- Leopold junior outside hitter Casey Bucher said Leopold girls usually start playing volleyball in fifth grade and until high school, their teammates primarily consist of other members of their class.

Redhawks wrap up preseason 2-0 (11/04/07)
The Southeast Missouri State men's basketball team was taken to the wire during its exhibition opener.

A book to call their own (11/04/07)

Happy Thanksgiving. Now where's the tree and holly? (11/04/07)
Husband-and-wife journalists Bob Miller and Callie Clark Miller share the same small house (still), work in the same office (again) and somehow manage to cling to their sanity (barely).

Our tax dollars (11/04/07)
Construction of the new federal courthouse in Cape Girardeau has been underway for a few years. The imposing structure, with its multistory domed atrium as its front entrance, is a major part of the downtown skyline.

Suggestions for Bell City windfall (11/04/07)
To the editor:Residents of Bell City could be in the midst of economic growth. How's that? you might ask. First, the councilmen need to set up a concession stand and charge admission to the car races on Main Street at night. That would bring in a few extra dollars to our ailing economy...

Make a choice for local food supply (11/04/07)
