Review: Talented cast makes 'Academia Nuts' entertaining (09/19/11)
With a small cast, one set and a simple plot, "Academia Nuts" doesn't seem impressive. And then those four people start to act. Holly Raines and Tana Howard appear first in the two-act comedy that marks the second show in the season for the River City Players community theater. After a cursory warm-up period, Raines owns her character, a topless entertainer named Tammi. She delivers the somewhat shocking revelations with cavalier disregard and a wave of the hand...

Dan Johnston has come to hate the sight of big barricades and detour signs. For nearly a year, they've come and gone along different spots along Big Bend Road, roadblocks that send drivers fuming in search of alternate routes. It's been frustrating, Johnston said, because Big Bend is the street he uses -- or used to use -- to get from his home on nearby Spanish Street to get to ... well, almost everywhere...

Shah Faisal is in for a fight Monday night at city hall. Another one. Six months after Faisal staved off strong neighborhood opposition to get a liquor license for his relocated Cape Mart convenience store, he is taking them on again. This time, Faisal is asking the Cape Girardeau City Council to let him sell alcohol on Sundays, something city leaders did not allow in March in an apparent conciliatory gesture to residents...

Plane in NV crash had ‘radical' changes to compete (09/19/11)
RENO, Nev. -- The World War II-era plane that plummeted into an air-race crowd like a missile bore little resemblance to its original self. It was rebuilt for speed, if not for stability.

The ailerons -- the back edges of the main wings used to control balance -- were cut from about 60 inches to 32...
