March 2, 2015 Local No Comments


Southeast Missouri State University will be making a few visual changes to its letter head as well as the banners around campus and material you will be seeing in your mailbox.  The Board of Regents Saturday approved a new University identity and branding recommendation from Ologie.  University Communications and Marketing Executive Director, Jeff Harmon tells KZIM KSIM the new logo will be sleeker and the slogan is something else.


A new dome logo developed is modern and more usable in a wide variety of applications, and the new wordmark includes “1873,” the year Southeast was founded.  Ologie will be on campus the last week of March 2015 to train a variety of groups on how to effectively roll-out the brand internally during “brand ambassador training.” Harmon says the branding will be the focus of the Cape Girardeau Chamber of Commerce First Friday Coffee in April.

A west Paducah, Kentucky man was arrested Sunday on methamphetamine charges.  McCracken County Sheriff’s Deputies received a tip that Jeremiah Lampkin, of 2235 Gholson Road, was possibly using meth at his home.  A search found a glass pipe with residue that field tested positive for methamphetamine in the kitchen area. They also found scales and plastic baggies in a small child’s bedroom trash can. Lampkin admitted that he had purchased $50 worth of meth from an unknown subject at a local gas station on Paducah’s south side earlier in the day and had ingested the substance prior to the deputies’ arrival.  He was arrested and charged with possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Pipeline May Carry Crude Oil Through Massac County 

March 2, 2015 AP No Comments

A Texas-based company is converting an existing natural gas pipeline that runs through Massac and Johnson counties in southern Illinois to transport crude oil.  Energy Transfer Partners spokeswoman Vicki Granado says the converted line would be part of a proposed new pipeline that could transport 450,000 barrels each day from oil fields in North Dakota.  Conversion is underway on more than 500 miles of natural gas pipeline, part of which runs through the Shawnee National Forest. The stretch runs underground from Joppa in Massac County north through Johnson and Williamson counties up to Johnsonville in Wayne County.  Southward, the pipeline crosses into western McCracken County through Ballard, Carlisle, Hickman and Fulton counties in Kentucky. It will continue to St. James, Louisiana for refining or loading into tankers.  Granado told The Southern Illinoisan in Carbondale the pipeline would not carry tar sands crude. That’s the Canadian product involved in the Keystone XL pipeline, a project President Barack Obama vetoed last week.
