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.

City of Jackson

On Monday, Philip Penzel resigned from his position as an alderman for the city of Jackson. According to a press release, Penzel, who owns Penzel Construction Company, made the move to “free his construction company to pursue new business opportunities.”

The resignation also came from the alderman’s need to abstain from voting processes regarding proposals for the construction of a new city police station, as well as the building process for the project. A possible conflict of interest also played a role in Penzel’s resignation.
