Employment Law Lawyers In Cape Fair Missouri

Cape Fair is an unincorporated community in Stone County, Missouri, United States. It is located at the southern terminus of Route 173 at Route 76 and located on an arm of Table Rock Lake. The origin of the name is unknown, but one theory is that is a corruption of "Cape Fear" because of the steep ledges around the area. Cape fair was recently put on the map after a dramatic rise in violent crime, with cases such as that of 72 year old Lashanda Adams. Late one night, Mrs. Adams was walking the streets of Cape Fair, on her way to check her mail at the post office, when a group of young gang members passed her on the highway, yelling crude and unprintable things. She returned home to find that her chicken coop had been broken into, two chickens brutally killed and several injured. This was the first in a string of many gang related crimes that have left many people in Cape Fair living in fear. The Gang is known only as "The Cape fair kidz" (intentionally spelled with a Z. )Police authorities recommend that residents and visitors to the area secure they're mobile homes, and wire the doors on their chicken coops shut. One of the main Attractions of the city is a life sized tree sculpture that is in fact made out of concrete and plastic. The tree resides across from Koppie's restaurant at an unknown exact location. Many locals have claimed to have found the placement of the fake tree, only to have been dumbfounded when extensive tests reveal that it is in fact, a real tree. The community is part of the Branson, Missouri Micropolitan Statistical Area.
