For parents, helping kids to be as well-rounded as possible is a big priority. One of the more popular avenues to do so is through dance lessons. Ballet, tap dance, and maybe even some jazz. But one teacher in downtown Cape Girardeau is showing kids the ropes to urban dance. I first met Michael 'Crank' Curry at a farmers’ market while his students were dance battling on a platform. They all had black shirts with golden fingerprint decals on the front, and they are now part of Michael's newly opened Fingerprint Urban Dance Studio.

History is full of famous duos -- Romulus and Remus, Gilbert and Sullivan, Batman and Robin. But of all the prominent pairs over the ages perhaps my favorite is Ben and Jerry.

That's because the ice cream produced by that Vermont institution is the closest to homemade of any store-bought brand I know. And what could be better during the hot summer months than a scoop of homemade ice cream? (Unless it's two scoops).

The fields and courts throughout Cape Girardeau are hopping this month with everything from the crack of the bat to the swish of a ball through a net, not to mention the roar of the crowd.

If you’re suffering from basketball withdrawal now that the NBA finals are over, make plans to stop by the Cape Girardeau Sportsplex on July 28 and 29th for the Midwest Youth Basketball Tournament. It’s the perfect opportunity to see some talented basketball players from the age of 8 to 18 play on the hardwood courts.

Car enthusiasts and fans of classic cars are sure to be interested in the Smith Summer Classic Car Auction, coming to the Show Me Center on July 20th and 21. Vehicles on the auction block range from a 1929 Ford Model a Phaeton to a 1988 Jaguar XJS – with lots of retro vehicles in between. You’ll even have the opportunity to get eastbound and down with a 1977 Pontiac Trans Am, similar to the one Burt Reynolds drove in “Smokey and the Bandit.”
