Looking Back in Time at Oct. 20

Monday, October 20, 2003

SIKESTON - I.K. Williams of Walherton, Ind., transacted business in Sikeston Monday until Wednesday. Mr. Williams formerly lived in Sikeston and owned a dwelling on Vernon, which he has disposed of recently.

SIKESTON - Rex Theatre today and tomorrow:: "Mysterious Doctor" with John Loder.

SIKESTON - The Sikeston Aviation Service will, for the first time, offer a ground school training class at the airport each Wednesday and Friday night at 7:30 p.m. Lee Ruebush is owner and manager.

CHARLESTON - About 300 people attended the dedication of the Big Oak Tree State Park Boardwalk Sunday. Entertainment included jazz music played by the East Prairie High School Jazz Band.

NEW MADRID - There aren't a lot of personal decorations on the walls of the New Madrid County R-1 superintendent's office - a diploma, a map of the county showing the various school boundary lines, a logo of the school district. Dr. Mike Barnes did not bring a lot of memories when he officially took over the district's top post July 1. What he did bring with him was a strong belief in education in Southeast Missouri and a determination to be the district's "cheerleader," relaying the message that the students graduating from the R-1 School District can compete with students anywhere.

HOWARDVILLE - Alex Hamilton sat with his friends, keeping an eye on basketball action at Saturday's Lincoln University Extension Fun Day conducted at the Howardville Community Center. The event, featuring food and games, was conducted for students involved in the extension program.
