Playing a woman discovering sexuality in the '50s makes actor Allison Janney think of — of all people — her mother. Janney's mother and father got married in their early 20s, and she doesn't believe her mother had sex with anyone else.

"I remember my mother talking to me about the birds and the bees," she tells Fresh Air's Terry Gross. "Of course, I had already known [about them], probably years before she came to me. But remembering the way she talked to me about it — it's just everything about her reminds me of Margaret Scully."

Visit Cape

We are in the dog days of summer. During this time it is a wonderful opportunity to take a hike on one of the great trail systems in Cape County Park or the Trail of Tears. There you will find that the temperature may be 15 degrees cooler than on the paved parking lot in the middle of town. Keep in mind the theory of cement vs gravel. You know that there has never been a day that you could fry an egg on that flat rock in the woods.

Visit Cape

It’s back-to-school time, and I can hear sighs of relief coming from parents all across town. It also means things are about to get busier, with sports in full swing, including a local favorite – Cape Central football! Keep your eye on the high school sports schedules to find out when to cheer on the Tigers. Be sure to mark your calendars for the Central vs Jackson rivalry. The team that wants to win must earn it with sweat, determination and heart! This is always a great game from the fans to the plays on the field.

Visit Cape

The Mississippi is bustling this month, with boats and barges passing by our community. Cape Girardeau and the river have both played a major role in the transportation of goods and people since before the town’s founding. Take part in a Cape tradition by welcoming the boats docking in town this month.
