On a cloudy and rainy Tuesday morning, May 4th, Southeast Missouri State University officially signed an employment partnership pipeline agreement with Republic Airways inside the "Commander Hangar" at the Cape Girardeau Regional Airport.

It was an event years and months in the making. Many University and some city government officials were present for the occasion.

Dr. Ken Jackson, who is now the Director of Aviation Operations at Southeast Missouri State University, addresssed the crowd and thanked them for making the vision a reality.

The City of Cape Girardeau is implementing a new false alarm reduction plan. 

 Every year the Cape Girardeau Fire and Police Departments respond to thousands of false alarm calls which divert resources away from responding to legitimate emergency situations. 


The goal of this new program is to minimize the burden on public safety personnel and reduce the rising annual costs of these responses to the general public.
