A design-build team has been selected to make changes to Capaha Field. The Cape Girardeau City Council chose Penzel Construction Company and Gray Design Group on Monday to give Capaha Park a fresh look, not only for the upcoming Southeast Redhawks baseball season, but for the entrance of the Catfish, a new collegiate wood-bat league which will begin playing in June of 2019.

Cape Splash Family Aquatic Center experienced one of it’s most successful opening weekends last week after having recovered from a February fire on their water pump house.

On the morning of Feb. 3, Cape Girardeau fire chief Rick Ennis spotted unusual smoke coming from the Cape Splash pump house while traveling on Kingshighway. By the time the fire department had arrived at the scene, the fire and smoke had already done most of the damage, costing nearly $750,000.
