Looking Back in Time at June 7

Friday, June 7, 2002

CAPE GIRARDEAU - Betty Ruth Limbaugh has entered Teachers College in Cape Girardeau for the summer term.

FAYETTE - Betty Jane Taylor, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. C.M. Taylor, has been awarded a $40 Harris Patton Scholarship her sophomore year at Central Fayette. She was given a $125 piano scholarship her freshman year. Taylor is majoring in music.

SIKESTON - Three Sikeston students were among the graduates awarded degrees at the 101st commencement at Washington University June 4. They were Margaret E. Perry, Charles Kendall Stallings and William Bartmess Gillespie.

SIKESTON - Congressman Bill Emerson fielded questions about the economy, foreign aid and taxes assessed against major oil companies Monday. Emerson appeared before a crowd of about 50 at the Sikeston Board of Realtors meeting at the Ramada Inn.

SIKESTON - For having no practices, Sikeston Legion coach Ron Borders was pleased. Not with the loss, but by the prospect this year's squad holds. Sikeston opened the 1992 campaign with a 7-6 loss to Perryville Sunday. "We had no practices and, in fact, it was the first time some of the guys had even met, so that made it difficult for us," Borders said. "We had a shaky first inning and that kind of set the tone for the game."

SIKESTON - Mayor Terry Bryant had an unsuccessful at-bat in Saturday's Sikeston City Hall vs. Sikeston Department of Public Safety softball game. Even so, the City Hall Pencil Pushers took back the city's traveling softball trophy, winning 12 to 6.
