In the early 1990s, the Susan G. Komen Foundation, Estee Lauder and Self magazine began distributing pink ribbons at events to promote breast cancer awareness.

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  

Today, most people are aware of breast cancer, but many don’t have a plan to detect the disease in its early stages and encourage others to do the same.

It seems like Almost Yesterday that the first commercial airplane landed at Chicago's Municipal Airport, later Midway Airport. The plane came in from Omaha, Nebraska, with passengers and several bags of mail. The date was December 1, 1927, and it was an historic first for aviation in Chicago.

The Boeing Aircraft was piloted by Ira Oris Biffle, from Patton, Missouri.

Biffle was born on September 14, 1886, the son of Valentine and Matilda Berry Biffle.

Every month, we sit down with Cape Girardeau mayor Bob Fox to find out what’s happening in city government. In our latest conversation, we discussed the city council’s passing of a Complete Streets policy at their last meeting. We also talk about the mayor’s attendance at the Mississippi Rivers and Towns Initiative meeting.
