River IndustryThe Mississippi River provides an abundant supply of sand to Cape Girardeau. This great resource has enhanced the community's ability to construct such large concrete projects as the A.C. Brase Arena Building, the Common Pleas Courthouse steps, Interstate 55, the Emerson Bridge, and the Mississippi River flood-wall. The towboat pictured was owned by the C.W. "Woody" Rushing family and named for Woody's wife, Evelyn Rushing. Captain Woody, one of the great modern river captains, stands watch on the bridge.
