COLUMBIA’S WARD BOUNDARIES Columbia is divided into six wards that were updated in 2011 to reflect the 2010 census. Each is represented by a member of the city council.

ack in the last century, I came to Columbia straight off the farm to study journalism at the University of Missouri. I spent a mandatory year in a dorm then moved off-campus with two friends. After a false start on Fourth Avenue, where the landlord failed to finish major repairs before the move-in date, we landed in the basement of a brick house at Ross and William streets in the East Campus neighborhood. A tribe from Sedalia had rented the upstairs, which had an expansive front porch and what was purported to be a bullet hole in a window, two facts that contributed to the cachet of offcampus life. The Sedalia crew was friendly enough, and we settled easily into life in the student ghetto. One weekend not long into the semester, our Sedalia housemates invited a couple hundred of their friends over for drinks. That was fine with us — until they maxed out the sewer system, which backed up through the drain in our living room. We placed boards across the hallway so we could get from the living room to the bedrooms while the mess

slowly subsided. But the bright green indooroutdoor carpet that covered the concrete floor quickly became a problem. It took weeks to restore that place to its former state of near-adequacy, and it is good my mother didn’t know how we lived. Student housing has been an issue in this college town since the days of passenger train service to Centralia. These days, Columbia offers more and better options as downtown apartment buildings seem to pop up like mushrooms. Student housing is changing the skyline and causing some angst about the evolving culture of the central district. Inside Our Town you can read about what the city is doing to accommodate the influx of bricks, mortar and matriculants. Also in this edition, you’ll find our list of the best local places that are off the beaten path. Newcomers and old-timers alike will no doubt find nuggets of interest. Our Town is packed with features like those, plus all the information you’ll need to navigate Columbia. Enjoy. — Jim Robertson, managing editor

Third Ward Councilman Karl Skala takes the oath of office April 8 in the Columbia City Council chamber from City Clerk Sheela Amin. Skala is one of three new members elected to the council this year.

City council calls the shots 2013 brings 3 new members. BY ANDREW DENNEY | 815-1719 Columbia’s city government is led by the Columbia City Council, a seven-member elected board responsible for passing a municipal budget, hiring a city manager to oversee operations and making the final say in decisions that have significant impact on residents’ lives. The council consists of a representative elected from each of the city’s wards, which each contained 18,000 residents as of the 2010 census, and a mayor elected at large. All serve three-year terms. Although the mayor is provided a larger electoral mandate and is typically tasked with presiding over council meetings, each member holds one vote. Second Ward Councilman Michael Trapp, who represents the ward that largely encompasses northwest Columbia, was elected in 2012 without previous direct involvement with local government. Trapp said he expected the position to be intellectually challenging but was surprised by its scope and depth: Members are required to make pivotal and often long-lasting

decisions and have knowledge on a range of topics, from police and fire pensions to water quality to the best time of year to call the city to fill a pothole. “Dealing with that amount of information, it’s kind of mind-boggling,” Trapp said. (The best time to call about a pothole, he recently found, is after mid-April, when it’s warming up outside and the city has opened its asphalt plant.) The council members themselves bring a range of backgrounds and areas of expertise: Mayor Bob McDavid is a retired obstetrician who served as chairman of the Boone Hospital Board of Trustees before being elected in mayor in 2010 and re-elected this April. First Ward Councilman Fred Schmidt is an accountant elected to the council in 2011 after previously serving as a member of the city’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Commission. Trapp is a counselor for Phoenix Programs. Third Ward Councilman Karl Skala is a retired director of the Swine Hormone Research Core at the University of Missouri School of Veterinary Medicine. He previously served on the council from 2007 to 2010 and was re-elected this year; he also has served on the city’s Planning and Zoning and Environ-

ment and Energy commissions. Fourth Ward Councilman Ian Thomas was elected this year after serving more than a decade as executive director of the PedNet Coalition. Fifth Ward Councilwoman Laura Nauser served on the council from 2005 to 2011 and won her old seat back in February after her successor, Helen Anthony, left town. She works at the Robert L. Perry Juvenile Justice Center. Sixth Ward Councilwoman Barbara Hoppe is a former transfer attorney for the Missouri State Public Defenders System and was elected in 2006, making her the council’s longest-serving member. She also serves as mayor pro tem. Starting next year, council ward representatives will begin receiving a $6,000 annual stipend, and the mayor will receive a $9,000 annual stipend. But council representatives hold positions that are now and long have been volunteer positions, with the time demand of at least a part-time job. Nauser estimated council business takes up about 20 hours of her time each week. “I don’t think that there’s a day that goes by where I don’t have a meeting,” she said. Although council elections are nonpartisan and the vast majority of votes by the council are unani-

mous, political differences exist among members and become more evident amid controversial issues, particularly matters of land use. McDavid and Nauser were elected with endorsements from the Columbia Chamber of Commerce and tend to make decisions favored by the business, development and real estate communities. Schmidt, Trapp, Skala, Thomas and Hoppe were favored by progressive voters and are sometimes perceived as more in tune with neighborhood concerns. In the first weeks that the current configuration of the council has been together, they have already had split 5-2 votes to reject a rezoning for a new convenience store and to extend a moratorium on illuminated signs, with McDavid and Nauser casting the dissenting votes. Within the coming months, the council is expected to consider an overhaul to the city’s zoning codes, especially as they pertain to downtown development, another topic that could spark division. But Trapp said despite differences among members, they generally share a good working relationship. “The conflict stuff is most interesting” in media coverage of council issues, Trapp said. “But maybe 95 percent of the time we’re on the same page.”

COLUMBIA NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATIONS Eighty neighborhood associations are recognized by the Columbia City Council. These organizations provide a channel for information flow and encourage public participation in municipal decisionmaking. Recognized associations receive notification about planning and zoning applications in the area and advance notice of public hearings. Associations in older neighborhoods are occasionally eligible for federal funds for public improvements. Organized neighborhoods are in a better position to discuss issues with developers.

Neighborhood groups amplify resident voices BY ANDREW DENNEY | 815-1719 In many parts of Columbia, residents seeking a louder voice in city government or just looking to get to know their neighbors can join one of the city’s more than 70 officially recognized neighborhood associations. Neighborhood associations should not be confused with homeowner associations, which are not recognized by the city but are instead are entities that exist specifically for homeowners and often establish legally binding covenants for members. Neighborhood associations, on the other hand, are officially recognized by the city and include all residents within a certain geographic area. The groups are often formed in response to hot-button issues such as major rezoning or redevelopment cases, said Leigh Britt, manager of the city’s Office of Neighborhood Services. Britt said the city encourages groups to find ways to stay active and organized by arranging events such as garage sales and block parties. In central Columbia, where crime and the state of aging public infrastructure are of top concern, new neighborhood associations have recently sprouted. The West Ash and West Worley neighborhood associations were formed in the past few years, and the Douglass Park Neighborhood Association was revitalized about a year ago after being dormant for more than a decade. “A neighborhood association is the best tool given to the people to have their voices heard,” said Tyree Byndom, secretary for the Douglass Park Neighborhood Association. Columbia’s more established neighborhood associations have shown they can have considerable influence over city affairs. In 2011, the East Campus Neighborhood Association threatened legal

action against developers who were building a fraternity house in the neighborhood 7 feet taller than its zoning district allowed. The developer settled with the neighborhood association, and the neighborhood has been using that money in part to pay for a park in the area. Representing residents who live near the hotbed of new development downtown, the North Central Columbia Neighborhood Association has had its hands full over the past two years dealing with the effects of increasing density. Adam Saunders, a member of the North Central neighborhood group, said it has been able to engage with the city to put parking restrictions in the North Village Arts District neighborhood to help residents reclaim their parking spaces. The group also has been advocating for the city to implement form-based zoning codes in the downtown area to help maintain the area’s character as its population becomes denser. But the central city isn’t the only area where residents are becoming interested in forming neighborhood associations. The Coventry Court Neighborhood Association is the city’s newest neighborhood association, said Bill Cantin, neighborhood response coordinator, and it encompasses a west Columbia neighborhood near West Broadway and Fairview Road. Coventry Court Neighborhood Association President Bill Moyes said the group formed as a result of residents taking part in neighborhood watch activities, but he said the group has taken a broader interest in issues affecting the neighborhood, such as how West Broadway might develop. “It gives you a chance to, you know, get a greater sense of a small community within a big community by knowing who lives around you,” Moyes said.

For its residential customers, the city of Columbia’s Solid Waste Utility conducts curbside pickup of trash and recycling bags. Rather than being placed in a can or a container, the bags must be set directly on the curb. In Columbia, this is a longstanding and popular method of trash collection: Recently, the city tossed out a plan to adopt a rollcart system for refuse collection because of a lack of public support for the idea. The city offers free recycling and trash bags to residents by mailing vouchers to customers in April, August and December that can be redeemed at local retailers. New residents are given vouchers within three weeks of becoming Solid Waste customers. No purchase is necessary at retail outlets to obtain the bags, but vouchers must be provided. Customers can place aluminum, glass, tin and plastic materials in the blue recycling bags. Paper and cardboard, though, must be placed in separate cardboard boxes for curbside pickup. If you’ve run out of bags but still don’t want recyclable items to end up in the landfill, recyclables also are collected at several drop-off locations throughout the city. Residents are advised to throw yard waste away with their trash. The city has a bioreactor at the municipal landfill that converts the methane emanating from trash into energy. Collection rates for city utility customers are about $15 per month, varying slightly depending on factors such as whether the resident receives bags or if a landlord covers the trash fee. Curbside collection is conducted throughout the work week and on Saturday on weeks when official holidays fall on a weekday. For more information, the city’s Solid Waste Utility can be reached at 874-6278, or go to the city’s website at www.

COMMUNITY BOONE COUNTY GOVERNMENT Boone County was formed in 1820 from segments of Howard and Montgomery counties and named after the frontiersman Daniel Boone, who spent his final days in Missouri. About 163,000 people — a 20 percent increase from 2000 — lived in the 687-squaremile county in 2010. The county is governed by a three-member county commission. Each commissioner is elected to a four-year term. The county receives revenue from real estate and personal property taxes, fees, and state and federal money, but more than 60 percent of county funds come from sales taxes. The county-owned Boone Hospital Center has a lease agreement with St. Louisbased BJC HealthCare, which pays an annual sum to the county based on the consumer price index. In 2012, the payment was about $1.74 million and another $500,000 for the county’s use of community health grants. BJC also made a one-time, $1 million payment to the county in 2012 as a result of negotiations to extend the lease. Boone County became a first-class county in 1991, a designation based on the valuation of land. State law allows county officeholders to set their own salaries. The Boone County presiding commissioner earns $84,654.40 a year, and the associate commissioners each earn $83,657.60. The county assessor, auditor, clerk, public administrator, recorder, treasurer and collector each earn $83,657.60 per year. The prosecutor earns $109,345.60, and the sheriff earns $111,384.

Pace picks up for housing, with sales and prices rising BY JACOB BARKER | 815-1722 After turning the corner in late 2011, Columbia’s housing market is on solid footing. Home sales last year, at 1,887 according to the Columbia Board of Realtors, were the highest since 2007. That pace doesn’t seem to be changing this year. The first quarter of 2013 saw its highest activity since 2007, with 344 home sales from January through March. Prices, too, are getting stronger. The average sale price of a home rose to $185,244 in 2012, more than $7,000 more than the 2007 average. The median sales price of Columbia homes rose to $158,900 in 2012, about $7,000 higher than the median in 2007, according to the Columbia Board of Realtors. The Federal Housing Finance Agency’s Home Price index, which also includes refinancings to measure changes in U.S. home valuations, has reported four consecutive quarters of price appreciation.

The city’s growing population means new homes are going up to fill the demand. Although the city was spared the worst of the downtown, there was some overbuilding, and several subdivisions were developed that never saw many — or any — houses go up on subdivided lots. Now builders are snapping up the remaining inventory of the boom years, filling up the empty lots primarily in the south and west of town. Single-family-home building permits issued in 2012 soared above their levels in recent years, reaching 528. That was the most since 2006, when there were 558. Those in the industry expect new housing developments to begin coming online soon to meet the demand for new singlefamily homes. Some of those will initially be out west and to the south, but city planners expect the city’s growth in the medium term to move to the east. The new Battle High School northeast of the city opens in August, and subdivisions are already planned around it.

Support system grows for entrepreneurs BY JACOB BARKER | 815-1722 Although Columbia this year hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t had the big, ribbon-cutting-style job announcements it did in 2010, that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean economic development officials havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been busy. The local economic development organization, Regional Economic Development Inc., or REDI, has signaled a shift toward a larger emphasis on entrepreneurship. REDI, a public-private organization staffed by city of Columbia employees, completed its first strategic plan last summer. The plan called for shifting its emphasis to growing startups and local businesses rather than spending most of its time trying to recruit companies shopping the country for communities willing to dole out the most incentive money. Although it still will â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and does â&#x20AC;&#x201D; spend time answering inquiries from companies and their search firms looking at possibly locating in Columbia, REDIâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s strategic plan called for more emphasis on locally grown companies. To that end, it wants to set up a seed fund to give startups access to early-

stage capital and establish a mentoring program where young entrepreneurs can get advice from professionals such as bankers and accountants. That would complement what the organization has already done in the area. It sponsors events that bring the local startup community together, such as #Boom and the associated Idea Bounce event, where entrepreneurs pitch business ideas for cash prizes. It has helped fund a startup business incubator next to its offices in collaboration with Brent Beshoreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s League of Innovators. And it has helped other organizations, such as the Small Business and Technology Development Center, a business counseling service, move into space next to its offices in the Fifth and Walnut parking garage. The shift to entrepreneurship at REDI came after many residents loudly opposed new tax abatement programs. However, REDI and the state of Missouri have successfully used some of those to benefit Columbia. IBM has brought hundreds of jobs to its Columbia service center, a project it

announced in 2010, with the help of tens of millions of dollars of incentives offered by the state, city and county. Also in 2010, 3M began to expand its workforce here with the help of tax credits and other incentives. It recently announced it planned to hire 50 more people at its Columbia factory. REDI, along with 3M, has also helped coordinate a new technical training program through Moberly Area Community College. The program is expected to begin offering classes teaching mechanical and electrical technician skills starting this fall.

REDI and the University of Missouri have also strengthened their partnership in recent years. In 2009, MU opened a business incubator catering to high-tech startups in the life sciences. Researchers from within and without MU have set up lab and office space there, and REDI often helps them connect to resources outside of the university when they are ready to grow beyond the incubator. In addition to all these efforts, Columbiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economy was already plugging along. Preliminary numbers from the Bureau of Labor Statistics put the unemployment rate in Columbiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s metropolitan statistical area, which includes Boone and Howard counties, at 4.7 percent at the end of 2012. That was two points below Missouriâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 6.7 percent unemployment rate at the end of the year. The city of Columbia, too, has been doing its part to promote the areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s business climate. The big push came over the past year, when the city began vigorously courting airlines to expand service at Columbia Regional Airport, resulting in new daily flights to Chicago and Dallas via American Airlines.

Things are looking up downtown Crews work on the site of the future Doubletree hotel on Broadway in downtown Columbia. The site formerly was occupied by the Regency hotel.

High-rise projects keep cranes busy. BY JACOB BARKER | 815-1722 As the city has kept growing, even through the worst years of the recession, investors have increasingly been putting their money on downtown Columbia. Millions of dollars have been poured into new residential spaces and commercial property in recent years. A multimillion-dollar renovation of downtownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s iconic Tiger Hotel building is seeking to turn the long-underused structure into a boutique hotel. Building owners have renovated the upper floors of their properties, fixing up longneglected areas to attract renters to lofts above ground-level retail. Cranes dot the downtown skyline as a new hotel goes up next to a new city parking garage in the North Village Arts District at Broadway and Short Street. New market-rate apartments are going up next to that, and just to the north, at Orr and Walnut streets, another new apartment building is planned to replace the underused buildings there. While the North Village area develops, student housing continues to snap up real estate downtown. It started when local developers Jon and Nathan Odle began building new downtown student rentals to be close to campus, but out-of-towners and other locals have increasingly jumped into the market. Down the street from all the con-

struction at Short Street, the Odles are adding hundreds more beds under their Brookside student housing brand at College Avenue and Walnut Street. Elsewhere in the downtown area, the Odles have added hundreds of beds to the student housing stock. Along Locust and Hitt streets, new units will be finished this summer. The Tenth Street complexes are full as well. Other developers are getting in on the demand for residential units in the core commercial district, too. The Lofts at 308 Ninth St., across Ninth from the University of Missouri School of Journalism, are scheduled to open this fall, turning what was a surface parking lot into a five-story apartment building with ground-floor retail. Over on Conley Avenue just west

of the MU campus, a proposal from a St. Louis development group aims to build a six-story student housing complex with space for more than 300 renters that incorporates bikesharing and short-term car rental stations as transportation options. While city leaders and downtown boosters have longed for years to attract residents nearer to the stores and restaurants that make the area what it is, all the growth has brought some angst. Some fret that the number of student-oriented apartments is getting out of balance with market-rate options for professionals, potentially skewing the demographics of downtown toward a more homogenous student population. A previous proposal to demolish one of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s oldest buildings to

make way for a new student highrise struck a nerve with preservationists and prompted a push by some city leaders to put a halt on downtown demolitions. While the developers ultimately backed off and found a new site, the incident has catalyzed a debate about new development regulations that looks likely to continue. Others have fretted over parking. The new apartments at College and Walnut brought an influx of student cars without enough parking spaces for them. Many of those tenants moved their vehicles to the adjacent neighborhood as the developers worked to build a garage for tenants. Neighborhood residents pushed the city to implement a parking permit system, giving residents of the houses just north of

downtown exclusive privileges to park on their street. Meanwhile, some firms have left the area, citing parking. The city, for its part, is trying to boost the supply of parking spots. It began making plans for the 423-space Short Street garage, which should open this year, almost as soon as it finished the massive 703-spot Fifth and Walnut garage in 2011. But many of the Short Street garageâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spaces have been reserved by adjacent businesses, so the public might only be able to access fewer than half. The city has long provided downtown parking, but the influx of residents and development in the area might eventually require private developers to step up and add supply. Or Columbia might have to accept that it has a good problem â&#x20AC;&#x201D; that finding parking in a vibrant downtown is sometimes a hassle. Still, Columbiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parking utility does offer a variety of options for parking that will include more than 2,000 garage spaces once Short Street is complete. These include garages at Tenth and Cherry streets, Sixth and Cherry, Eighth and Cherry, Eighth and Walnut, and Fifth and Walnut Parking permits for garages run $65 monthly, $190 quarterly or $715 annually. Permitted spaces often sell out, and residents can pay 50 cents per hour in garage metered spaces or 60 cents per hour to park at street meters.

New airline adds popular destinations BY ANDREW DENNEY | 815-1719 As in the larger airline industry, the city of Columbia has gone through ups and downs in the past few years as it has worked to expand air service. About two years ago, Columbia business and government leaders put a focus on the airport as a possible driver of economic development after Regional Economic Development Inc. reported that firms that were considering setting up shop in Columbia changed their minds because access to international air travel was inadequate. With the help of a two-year, $3 million revenue guarantee with contributions from the city, the University of Missouri, Boone County, Jefferson City, Cole County and private investors, the city was able to attract American Airlines to Columbia Regional Airport, where it offers two daily flights to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport and Chicago Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Hare International Airport. The success didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come without complications, though: Previous provider Delta Air Lines withdrew from the market in February when American came in, stopping its service to Atlanta and Memphis, Tenn. In addition, Frontier Airlines, which began providing flights to Orlando, Fla., in November, pulled out of the Columbia market in May. For now, city leaders are focusing on maintaining the relationship with American, which both parties have considered successful thus far. American flights to and from Columbia are reporting load factors north of 80 percent, and the city hopes to eventually cash in on that success to gain an addi-

tional flight to Chicago or access to the West Coast. City Manager Mike Matthes said he hopes Columbia can fill a niche forming in the airline industry as it consolidates and airlines scale back service to mid-sized airports such as those in Kansas City and St. Louis. According to a study by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology International Center for Air Transportation, from 2007 to 2012, departures from Kansas City and St. Louis dropped 30 percent and 27 percent, respectively. Columbia had a 26 percent decrease in departures in that time frame, but the number of seats scheduled increased from 23,788 in 2007 to 46,200 in 2012, a 94 percent increase. In the latter category, Kansas City saw a 24 percent decline and St. Louis saw a 20 percent decline. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re fighting to keep up their numbers, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to grow,â&#x20AC;? Matthes told the Columbia City Council at a meeting in which proposed capital improvements for the airport were discussed. Matthes said Columbia could establish itself as a feeder airport to big hubs such as Chicago and Dallas, where fliers would be able to find direct flights.

Meanwhile, the city is also looking at ways to expand the terminal at Columbia Regional Airport, which was built in 1969 and is out of compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. City leaders added a terminal construction project to the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Capital Improvement Project list and estimated the project would cost about $20 million. Matthes said city leaders added a new terminal to the list in hopes of starting conversations with the Federal Aviation Administration to draw federal grants to cover 90 percent of the cost. He said the FAA typically does not fund terminals, opting mostly to pay for projects that would enhance passenger safety, but he said it is not out of the realm of possibility. An airport in Saginaw, Mich., he said, was built with the help of federal funds. At a recent meeting to discuss the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s capital improvements list, Mayor Bob McDavid said government agencies tend to allocate funding evenly across a geographic area, and he suspects FAA funding for airport improvements is no different. In that scenario, he said, Columbia could be competing with Kansas City and St. Louis yet again, but this time for funding rather than passengers.

New high school means big changes Battle campus to open this fall. BY CATHERINE MARTIN | 815-1711 At the start of the school year this fall, many things wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem quite the same at Columbia Public Schools. For the older grades, major changes will take place as a result of the opening of the new Battle High School in east Columbia. The reason is because of the grade shifts accompanying Battleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opening â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Columbiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s high schools havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t included ninth-graders in the recent past, but now they will, and that means changes from sixth grade on up. West, Oakland and Jeff junior high schools will be renamed as

middle schools, joining existing middle schools Gentry, Smithton and Lange. They will all take on a new configuration of grades, housing students in grades 6-8. Previously, middle schools housed grades 6-7 and junior high schools held grades 8-9. The addition of middle schools means ninth-graders will move up to high school, at Battle, Hickman and Rock Bridge high schools, plus the alternative Douglass High School. Putting ninth-graders in high school is important, district administrators have said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our junior high teachers do a really good job of telling our ninthgraders that this year is different. â&#x20AC;Ś But no words can help them get that if theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still physically in a CONTINUED ON 26

WHAT KEEPS YOU IN COLUMBIA? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Moving to Columbia was an easy choice for me. Here I found all the culture and amenities of a big city, and with the charm of a small town. Columbia has many alluring qualities, but I was most attracted by the creative spirit of its art culture. Art, music, theater and cinema are all here in Columbia, and every night of the week. Best of all, the friendly atmosphere here makes sharing these joys with others a meaningful experience.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Mike Seat, ďŹ ne art photographer

Private schools expand student options Tolton Catholic adds its first senior class. BY CATHERINE MARTIN

Justin Stewart/Tribune

Tolton Catholic High School Athletic Director Chad Masters, right, discusses Tolton’s athletic programs during an open house for prospective students and their parents Dec. 9. The school will open to all four grades next year for the first time. | 815-1711 Another year in business meant another round of firsts for Tolton Catholic High School, which just completed its second year. The school’s opening in 2011 in southeast Columbia added to the local choices for private schooling; previously, students didn’t have an option to continue Catholic education past eighth grade in Columbia. Tolton opened to freshmen and sophomores two years ago and had a junior class this year for the first time, which meant its first prom and first class rings. It also had its first spirit week, an event that will later evolve into a homecoming celebration open to alumni. The school also added several activities, including cheerleading, scholar bowl, speech and debate, and continued to build on what it started in 2011. “The second year, it becomes a tradition,” Principal Kristie Wolfe said of repeating favor-

ite activities in the second school year. The upcoming academic year will bring another round of firsts. As the juniors become seniors, Tolton will have its first graduation. It also will bring the school’s largest enrollment yet — 180 students total, up from 120 in 201213. Eventually, the school hopes to have about 100 students at each grade level. “We offer a very distinct and unique kind of education here in Columbia,” Wolfe said in December. “As we normalize what we do, then it will build trust and community, … so people know we’re there and what kind of education we provide.” More classes and clubs also will be added this school year, including National Honor Society, Spanish National Honor Society, and Latin and French classes, as well as sports medicine, introduction to business and introduction to writing and research class as electives. Another private school, Heritage Academy, 606 Ridgeway Ave., also has plans for growth on the horizon. Heritage serves as a university model school, where students only attend classes at the physical school building part time and

EDUCATION work at home with their parents the rest of the time. Right now, however, the school isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fully a university model â&#x20AC;&#x201D; while kids in grades 6-12 attend school on site three days a week, students in grades 3-6 go to school twice a week and younger students once a week. Starting next year, students in grades 3-6 will join the older students in attending school three days a week. In 2014, kindergartners also will get that opportunity. First grade will follow suit in 2015 and second grade in 2016. The changes came in response to request from parents at the lower levels, Chief Academic Officer Kathleen Mallory said. Mallory hopes it will attract more families

with young children to enroll their kinds in the lower grades. Heritage has more secondary students, Mallory said, because schoolwork becomes more complicated at that age, and kids are more interested in social interactions. Meanwhile, the Southwest Play School, a preschool that had been part of the community for more than 50 years, closed in May. The school was a parent co-op, where children only came to school a couple of days a week and two parent volunteers stayed in the classroom each time. Enrollment had been declining, and parents and staff said they think the concept of parent co-ops might be fading out because more families have two working parents.

Vera Massey, nutrition and health education specialist with the MU Extension office in Boone County, said providing relevant, reliable and responsive education to improve Missouriansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lives is the mission of the extension offices. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Extension puts us on the ground and in a position where we can be a broker of educational information, of services and of building partnerships,â&#x20AC;? Massey said in an email. Massey said because it has a presence in every county, MU Extension can connect Missourians to the universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s research and resources. She said one of the ways is through workshops and programs. One of the programs Massey is excited about is a series of workshops on home food preservation, including lessons on freezing and dehydrating, pressure canning, canning salsa and fruit, pickling, and jams and jellies. Besides demonstrations and hands-on experience, participants can learn how in-home

food preservation can decrease the risk of foodborne illness and decrease food costs. Massey also highlighted the nationally recognized Taking Care of You: Body-Mind-Spirit program. The eight-week program helps people use practical strategies to manage stress. Last year, MU received the Jeanne M. Priester Award, which honors extension groups that develop and expand programs that positively impact health. Massey said the Extension offices are funded through support from federal, state and county governments; grants and contracts; fees for services; and private gifts. Extension offices arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the only places that offer programs to the community. MU offers the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance, or VITA, program to community members who earn less than $50,000. Andrew Zumwalt, head of the VITA program at MU, said in addition to offering assistance with tax returns, the program helps spread knowledge during the tax preparation process. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re really in for the education,â&#x20AC;? he said. Zumwalt said if a client says they will use their tax return to catch up on their credit card debt, it can start a conversation about

financial stability and how best to use a tax return. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interesting, the trust that builds up between a client and tax returner,â&#x20AC;? Zumwalt added. Although the purpose of a university is to provide educational resources, MU also pro-

WHAT KEEPS YOU IN COLUMBIA? â&#x20AC;&#x153;First and foremost, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a place where we have developed a wide circle of family, friends and colleagues with deep connections that go a long way back. In terms of things to do, there are wonderful educational and cultural programs such as Ragtag, the Met Opera broadcasts, the Museum of Art and Archaeology, True/False, concerts, dance and theater, only to mention a few. Having three colleges with courses, lectures and other intellectually stimulating events provides us with a cultural climate that makes Columbia an extraordinary place to live. The large medical community has provided us with wonderful medical care and is a major reason for our retiring in this area. In addition, we have a low cost of living, an ever-expanding number of wonderful restaurants and cities such as Kansas City, St. Louis and Chicago within driving distance.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Bill Bondeson and Linda Cupp

College connects dots on diplomas Program helps former students finish degrees. BY KARYN SPORY | 815-1705 This year Columbia College wrapped up a program that helped them award hundreds more diplomas. Project Win/Win is a national program that seeks to identify students no longer in college who have earned enough credit hours to earn an associate degree and award the degrees retroactively. “The idea is to go out and find students who have completed their associate degree requirements, or nearly completed their associate degree requirements, and then contact them to let them know,” said Tery Donelson, assistant vice president of enrollment

management. Columbia College was one of 64 institutions that participated in the three-year program, which ends Oct. 31. Donelson said most of the students quit school during the pursuit of a bachelor’s degree. “A lot of these students have well over the 60 hours they need for an associate degree, but that was never on their radar,” he said. Donelson said the college is looking back into its records as far as 2003. A computer program runs through names of those students who stopped and divides them into two groups — eligibles and potentials. The eligibles are students who have already earned the 60 credit hours needed for an associate degree. “The student is getting a degree they’ve already earned,” Donelson said.

Donelson said around 800 former Colum-

bia College students were eligible for a degree and 1,000 had the potential to earn a degree. Donelson said overall, student response has been very positive. In fact, 310 eligible students have been awarded an associate degree. Twenty-three of the potentials went back to Columbia College and completed their degree. “Another nine actually came back and finished their bachelor’s degree,” Donelson said.

vidual at home, and then they are able to present their findings via technology such as multimedia presentations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These are second- through fifth-graders that are using this technology,â&#x20AC;? she said. However, Stephensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; education majors are also getting a tutorial in new technology. Patrika Brown, a junior majoring in early childhood and elementary education, said she decided that using â&#x20AC;&#x153;technology was my goal for the semester because Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always been kind of anti-technology when it comes to teaching.â&#x20AC;? After smartboards and iPads were brought into Stephensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; on-campus lab school, Brown began using YouTube as a resource for herself and her students, recording her lessons and putting them on YouTube to share with parents of her students or with her professors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At the end of the day, Johnny has done five things and Susie has done three, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nice when you can record your lessonsâ&#x20AC;? and send a link to the childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parents, Brown said. Brown, who taught her first-grade class about the Underground Railroad, also used YouTube to show educational videos, as well as assigning students to create their own videos. She put a camera and Windows Movie Maker in the tiny hands of first-graders and told them to go create. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I gave them all this technology and said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Show me what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve learned,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;? she said.

BY KARYN SPORY | 815-1705 Stephens College is working to ensure that when its education majors step into their own classrooms, they are ready to teach digitally savvy kids. Lindsey Clifton, lead teacher at the Stephens College Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s School, said faculty members have worked hard to make sure technology is accessible for the college students, as well as the children they work with. Smart boards, iPads and e-readers can be found in the childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s school, a laboratory setting that gives Stephens students the chance to have direct experience working with children via class activities under the supervision of professors. Education is one of the nearly 30 undergraduate majors offered at the private four-year womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s college in central Columbia. The campus is perhaps most noted for its dance, theater and fashion studies, but it offers a variety of programs including graduate studies and a range of minors to complement studentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; degrees. Clifton said students at the childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s school enjoy learning about the technology, as well as using it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They get so excited, and they are able to do things that the college students are doing,â&#x20AC;? she said. Clifton said one of the assignments the kids have is to research an indi-

Water play area, dog parks get updates Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a dogâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life in Columbia

Stephens Lake opens gardens.

BY CAROLINE DOHACK | 815-1727 Nature? Check. Sporting events? Check. Restaurants? Check and check and check. Columbia really does have it all, especially for dogs and their human friends. Here is a by-nomeans-exhaustive look at places to spend some quality time with your pooch.

BY CATHERINE MARTIN | 815-1711 In Columbia, new park projects or improvements are almost always in the works. Recently, the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Parks and Recreation Department completed improvements at several of the 70 parks around town. Little Mates Cove, a water park for small children at Twin Lakes Recreation Area, got a makeover before opening for the summer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Little Mates Cove was totally renovated. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a brand-new design of the entire facility,â&#x20AC;? said Tammy Miller, spokeswoman for the Parks and Recreation Department. Before the renovations, the facility was getting old and had some issues with cracking, she said, but those issues have been resolved. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be a much safer facility, more attractive and definitely still designed for small kids,â&#x20AC;? she said. The dog park at Twin Lakes saw upgrades, too, Miller said, including an area designated for smaller dogs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That has been something the public has been asking for for a while. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had issues in the past with large dogs and small dogs not coexisting very well together,â&#x20AC;? she said. Sports areas in other parks also saw updates. At Albert-Oakland Park, the ball fields got new fencing, lighting, brand-new restrooms and walkways, and dugouts were expanded. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s another great improvement to the park for the users,â&#x20AC;? Miller said. At L.A. Nickell Golf Course, the clubhouse got a remodel that included restroom renovations, removal of

leaking skylights and concession renovations. A new element was added to Stephens Lake Park in October: the Darwin and Axie Hindman Discovery Garden, named for the longtime Columbia mayor and his wife. The area features three themed gardens including â&#x20AC;&#x153;Grow to Know Your World,â&#x20AC;? which has non-native plants; â&#x20AC;&#x153;What Did Daniels See?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; named for an early 1900s MU botany professor Francis Potter Daniels, who inventoried native plants; and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Eye for Improvement,â&#x20AC;? focusing on plant hybridization. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is not only a place of beauty to enjoy but a place to learn,â&#x20AC;? Axie Hindman said at a dedication ceremony. Several big parks projects are still on the horizon, including construction on the Gans Recreation Area and Philips Park in south Columbia. Full plans include athletic fields, trails,

hard-surface courts and natural open space. The project has a $650,000 budget for 2013 and a total budget of $1.75 million, pending council approval of the fiscal year 2014 and fiscal year 2015 capital improvement program. Funding will come from a park sales tax that passed in 2010. Several other projects are on tap for 2013 including adding a walkway and stage lighting to the Stephens Amphitheater in Stephens Lake Park, repairs at the Flat Branch Spraygrounds, replacing older wooden fitness and exercise stations at Again Street Park and replacing flooring at the Armory. Steinberg Playground in Cosmo Park, which is 15 years old, will also be updated, and the Douglass High School and park area will also see several updates including sidewalk infrastructure, fencing, landscaping and turf improvements.

Columbia boasts three parks with fenced enclosures for dogs to romp off leash. These include Twin Lakes Recreation Area, 2500 Chapel Hill Road; Garth Nature Area, 2799 N. Garth Ave.; and Indian Hills Park, 5009 Aztec Blvd. Three parks also have designated leash-free areas: Grindstone Nature Area, 2011 Old 63 S.; Cosmo Parkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bear Creek Nature Area, 1615 Business Loop 70 W.; and Hinkson Woods Conservation Area, 2701 Forum Blvd. or 2500 Chapel Hill Road. Bear in mind that dogs must be kept on a 4-foot leash when on any established trail, and picking up poop isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just polite, but an ordinance.

TRAINING AND DAY CARE So youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a pup that could use a little primer on basic manners, or a high-energy animal that needs some structured activity. Columbia Canine Sports Center, 4506 I-70 Drive S.E., and Ann Gafkeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Teacherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

Pet, 325 E. Dripping Springs Road, both offer obedience and agility training. Busy dog parents can drop their pets off at doggie day care centers such as South Paw Acres, 5550 W. Gillespie Bridge Road, and Dog Daze Playcare, 4506 I-70 Drive S.E., and many veterinarians offer boarding services as well.

ORDERING A LA BARK At Treats Unleashed, 1400 Forum Blvd., John Bengston splits his time baking fresh dog treats, many of which contain ingredients you might find appetizing as well, and kibitzing with other dog owners. Lizzi and Roccoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Natural Pet Market, 503 E. Nifong Blvd., Suite J, also specializes in natural â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and sometimes exotic â&#x20AC;&#x201D; pet treats. Jessica Schlosser, who owns Lizzi and Roccoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s with her husband, Kyle, said a number of businesses welcome visits from four-legged friends. Downtown eateries such as Bleu, Billiards on Broadway and Uprise Bakery, for example, let pups dine al fresco with their owners. Out for an ice cream run? Dogs accompanying their owners through the drive-through at Andyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Frozen Custard, 610 N. Cooper Drive, will be treated to a free ice cream cone. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not hard to spot the regulars in line. Tails wagging and noses pressed against the windows, these dogs have a hard time waiting.

Jim Lee is in his 26th year as horticulturalist. “I would have never guessed I’d still be here,” he says, introducing himself as “just the gardener.” The gardens have different attractions every season, including a unique selection of Japanese peonies, which until 50 years ago

were owned exclusively by Chinese royalty. “You only get to appreciate something like that if you’ve been around long enough,” Lee says, pointing to a pair of 17-year-old koi fish in the gentle stream circulating through the garden. The last stop is for hand-scooped ice cream at Kinkead Pharmacy in Centralia. With a Radio Shack, pharmacy, scrapbooking sec-

Your roughly 160-mile day trip was a bellyfilling, history-learning experience that passed through half of the 28 place-name locations in Boone County. We only grazed the eastern half of the county. Yes, there’s still more to discover.

Come along for the ride

BELOW: The view looking south on Andrew Sapp Road west of Ashland offers some of the best rural scenery in Boone County.

160-mile trip takes in only half of county. BY JODIE JACKSON JR. | 815-1713 Columbia has miles of trails and seemingly endless possibilities for pleasing the palate, but venturing off the beaten path into some of Boone County’s smaller communities reveals a ready treat for the senses. Follow along on a suggested day trip that doesn’t leave Boone County and barely grazes the southern and western border of Columbia. Bring a notepad, a camera and a big appetite. Starting in the Hartsburg river bottoms is an easy choice, but the “river route” day trip goes on the “see later” list. For that trip, you can wind the back roads from Hartsburg west to Easley and McBaine, where you could spot a bald eagle or rare, migrating waterfowl making a visit to Eagle Bluffs Conservation Area. McBaine also is home to the state’s champion bur oak tree that was already a stately site to behold when Lewis and Clark were exploring the uncharted country via the Missouri River. You can go from McBaine to Huntsdale and Rocheport to complete the “river route.” For this trip, we’re heading north from Hartsburg to Ashland on Route A/Old 63, going west on Broadway in Ashland but stopping at Maa Pies, 203 W. Broadway, for a filling breakfast. Be sure to save room for one of Maa’s melt-in-your-mouth cinnamon rolls. “Are you a believer?” co-owner William Linzie asks when asked how he and his wife, Joycelynn — Maa — came to run a restaurant in southern Boone County. “It was prophesied that we’d do this,” says William, who pastors a small church in Columbia. “It’s all about Kingdom work.” “Serving you like Momma’s kitchen,” Joycelynn adds. Continue west on Broadway to Route MM to Andrew Sapp Road north to Nashville Church Road and Route N. The rolling landscape is hiding several high-dollar homes as well as quaintly decorated mailboxes and

other signs of rural life. Andrew Sapp Road provides some of the county’s most eye-popping vistas. Traveling Route N north through Sapp to Pierpont, head west on Highway 163 toward Rock Bridge Memorial State Park. Add that locale to your “see later” list because Rock Bridge is worth at least half a day on its own. Just past the park, head north on Rock Quarry Road to the Gans Creek Wildlife Area on the right. Here’s a chance to walk off that breakfast and to ask another visitor to snap a photo of your party on the footbridge over Gans Creek. Back on 163, head west to the south Columbia city limits to Old Plank Road and Scott Boulevard, which runs north to your next brief stop at the Jay Dix Station on the MKT Trail. Next time you can bring a bike and ride

the MKT to McBaine and the Katy Trail. Back on Scott Boulevard, head to Route ZZ/Strawn Road, which connect with the Interstate 70 north and south outer roads. Make your way west on I-70 to Highway 40/240 and head north through Midway and past the Midway Little General convenience store. Next is Route J, where you’ll head north toward Harrisburg, passing Woodlandville. At Harrisburg, take a right onto Sexton/ Highway 124 to Lonnie Ray’s, a barbecue paradise named after owner Mike Whitely’s father. Lonnie Ray’s was recently voted “Best BBQ” in a Rural Missouri editor’s choice award. Brisket, smoked meats, one-of-a-kind barbecue sauce and heaping helpings are just 30 minutes north of Columbia. “We do it the old-school way,” Whitely says, showing off a smoker chock-full of ribs, roasts

and other wonders. Leaving Harrisburg on Route F, north to the Boone/Randolph county line, passing forested and pastured areas far less populated than the southern portion of the county. At Highway 22 heading east, glance north at Route Y and add “Amish country” to the “later” list. You’ll want to come back around 8 a.m. on a Saturday and make your way to the in-house bakeries across the county line to stock up on breads, angel food cake and other delicacies. Be alert for horse and buggy transport and for signs pointing the way to fresh produce, eggs, quilts and other handmade goods. Highway 22 leads first to Sturgeon and then to Centralia, where you’ll go south on Jefferson Street, then right on Sneed Street to the Chance Gardens, a horticultural attrac-

PARKS COLUMBIA PARKS AND REC Fishing, trails, golf and disc golf courses, tennis courts, swimming pools, dog areas, skating areas and plenty of well-kept acreage for photography opportunities or just a quiet afternoon alone with a book are just a few of the features that can be found in Columbia’s 70 public parks. Find a map and a full list of the city’s parks at gocolumbiamo. com/ParksandRec/Parks. Here are a few of the largest parks and the city’s golf courses: A. Perry Philips Park 5050 Bristol Lake Parkway Hours: 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily This 140-acre park, which was dedicated in May 2011, includes a 40-acre lake open for fishing, a fishing dock and boat dock, and a 1.4mile walking trail. Nonmotorized boats and boats with trolling motors can be used at the lake, and for fishers, the lake is stocked with largemouth bass, bluegill and channel catfish.

Stephens Lake Park Broadway and Old 63 Hours: 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily One of Columbia’s more popular getaways, this 116-acre park features free wireless Internet access, making it a good location for college students and professionals to get work done outdoors. The park features an 11-acre sandy beach lake, which includes a sprayground, and swimming and fishing areas. Admission is free, but there are no lifeguards. The lake is open from May through September. Ice skating is permitted when winter conditions allow. The park has several playgrounds, more than two miles of walking trails, an open playfield, six picnic shelters, a sledding hill and a waterfall. There also are seven outdoor shelters and an amphitheater, which features monthly free concerts in the summer. On the northeast end of the park is Riechmann Pavilion, 2300 E. Walnut St. The 2,000-square-foot main room overlooks the park, and with a 150-person capacity, it hosts weddings, receptions and other gatherings. UNDER DEVELOPMENT

Gans Creek Recreation Area: The 320-acre area that includes a portion of the Gans Creek Watershed is one of the more “wild” green areas in the city’s park system. Park managers note the site is an important link in the park system because of its proximity to Rock Bridge Memorial State Park, Philips Park and Nifong Park.

AREA PARKS A natural getaway is only minutes away in Columbia. Three state parks are within easy driving or cycling distance, and many offer educational and enrichment programs throughout the year. Rock Bridge Memorial State Park: The park gets its name from a natural bridge that formed when part of the roof of a cave collapsed. Other notable features include a double sinkhole known as Devil’s Icebox and two caves. Connor’s Cave is open to the general public in the summer and to scheduled school programs in the spring and fall. Park staff offers interpretive programs year-round, and training is available through “Rock Bridge 101” every year or two for volunteers who want to lead nature walks and be involved in the interpretive programs. There are eight hiking trails of varying lengths and elevation changes, six of which are open to cycling. Horseback riding is permitted in the nearby Gans Creek Wild Area, an unmanicured 750-acre space. The park also has several picnic areas and two shelters, an orienteering course and a playground for children. Rock Bridge Memorial State Park is at 5901 S. Highway 163. Reach the park office at 4497402 and the trails hotline at 442-2249. Online:

Finger Lakes State Park: Those seeking adventure will find it at Finger Lakes State Park, which features 70 miles of trail and motocross track. The 1,128-acre park, once the site for a coal strip-mining operation, is full of hills and ravines. Off-road trails are open for motorcycles, four-wheelers and ATVs. Motocross events are coordinated and sponsored by Motocross Parents (MXP). For information on upcoming races, race classes and fees, visit or call 489-1500. The motocross track closes at least two days before race weekends for preparations, so the Missouri Department of Natural Resources recommends calling the park office for updated information. Opportunities for more traditional outdoor activities exist, as well. The recently opened Kelley Branch Mountain Bike Trail stretches 2.75 miles inside the 90-acre Kelley Branch Restoration Area. The park has 19 basic and 16 electric campsites, which can be reserved year-round. There also is a swimming beach, several fishing holes, a shaded picnic area with tables and grills, a playground and a boat ramp. Nearly a dozen small lakes created by the mining company are connected by a series of dams and canals, resulting in roughly 1.5 miles of shoreline — perfect for canoeing and kayaking or fishing. Finger Lakes State Park is at 1505 E. Peabody Road. You can reach the park office at 443-5315. Online: Katy Trail State Park: At 240 miles, the Katy Trail is one of the longest rails-to-trails projects in the United States. The trail snakes from Machens to Clinton along the corridor of the Missouri-Kansas-Texas (MKT) Railroad’s former route. Parts of the trail go along the Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail and the American Discovery Trail, and much of it follows along the banks of the Missouri River. Horses are permitted on the western section of the trail from the state fairgrounds in Sedalia to Clinton and in the Midwest section from Portland to Tebbetts. There are trailheads every five miles or so, many of which have information stations and amenities such as restrooms and water fountains. For information on additional trailside services, visit page/57745/trail-services. Trail users are also advised to be alert to changing trail conditions as they might encounter trail work crews, flooding, debris on the trail and similar hazards. Closer to Columbia and Boone County, you can journey across the state or opt for a short trail ride. Although the Katy Trail doesn’t pass through Columbia, a spur from the 8.9-mile MKT Trail leads from Columbia’s western edge to the trailhead in McBaine. The MKT has access points at Providence Road and

Stadium; Forum; and Scott boulevards. In addition to the trailhead at McBaine, other area trailheads along the Katy include Hartsburg, Rocheport and Boonville. There are special events at points on the trail year-round. The Katy Trail annual bike ride takes cyclists from Clinton to St. Charles; the ride is limited to 300 people, and registration starts in March on Missouri State Parks’ website, In the fall, tram rides are offered from Rocheport to McBaine and back to view spectacular, river bluff autumn colors. That 8-mile stretch also gives visitors a chance to see the rock drawings, or petroglyphs, that Osage Indians etched into the west-facing bluff near Rocheport. Each May, the Columbia-based Pedaler’s Jamboree combines a cycling journey to Boonville with live music events. For trail information, call the Department of Natural Resources at (800) 334-6946. Online: Shelter Gardens: It’s not a state park, but one of the most visually appealing, must-see outdoor venues in Columbia is Shelter Gardens. The arboretum and public gardens, on a 5-acre tract on the grounds of Shelter’s corporate office, feature more than 300 varieties of trees and shrubs and more than 15,000 annuals and perennials. The gardens are open to the public from 8 a.m. to dusk. The venue is closed only on Christmas Day. The grounds have welcomed countless students, scientists and school groups, and it’s not uncommon to see high schoolers from throughout the area stopping at the gardens to snap prom photos. You can also expect to encounter wedding parties — and maybe even see a wedding — throughout the summer. The garden’s cedar gazebo is the focal point of “Concerts in the Gardens” on Sunday evenings in June and July. Other features include a waterfall, rock garden, Vietnam veterans’ memorial, a garden for the blind and a replica 19th-century one-room schoolhouse. The gardens are at 1817 W. Broadway. For more information, call 214-4595.

New-church creation widens faith options BY AMY WILDER | 815-1714 Sometimes, existing churches donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fill the needs of all members of a community. These souls might feel uncomfortable or dissatisfied with established denominations for any number of reasons, and this creates a need and an opportunity for leaders to create new church organizations, a process also known as church-planting. The need for church planting can spring from a range of issues. In some cases, a younger generation of seekers feels that existing doctrines or congregations donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quite suit them. This was the impetus behind establishing Redemptionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hill Church in October 2011, the Rev. T.J. Dreyer said. Dreyer grew up in the area and was raised in the more conservative Assemblies of God and Open Bible congregations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I grew up that way, then went off to college â&#x20AC;Ś and realized that I never had a faith at all,â&#x20AC;? he remembered. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just went to church

because my parents made me.â&#x20AC;? After spending several years attending college and living in Kansas City and Des Moines, Iowa, Dreyer identified a similar need among others in his peer group. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I looked at most of the people I hung out with in high school or college, and really none of them had a flourishing faith â&#x20AC;Ś or a relationship with God or Christ,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So as the desire to plant came, I felt like we wanted to speak into that, wanted to come back this way and try our part and answer some of that.â&#x20AC;? On the other end of the spectrum, new churches might come about when members of a deeply rooted denomination feel that changes within existing church doctrine no longer reflect their values. The Episcopal Church is one example of this. The denomination itself was a sort of â&#x20AC;&#x153;plantâ&#x20AC;? a few centuries ago, an evolution away from the Church of England that came with the American Revolution. It has experienced declining membership over the past

City of Columbia

WHAT KEEPS YOU IN COLUMBIA? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I spent 20 years wandering around the world looking for a home and then stumbled on Columbia almost by chance. The ďŹ rst evening I was here, I went out for dinner with the one person I knew in town, and she brought along her single, male friend â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and a year later we got married! Who knew that the home I spent all those years searching for would be in the middle of Missouri? Not me!â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Diana Moxon, Columbia Art League executive director

four decades, springing from internal controversy over â&#x20AC;&#x201D; among other things â&#x20AC;&#x201D; revised prayer books, embracing women pastors and the acceptance of homosexual members. Many of those members are turning toward church-planting efforts of a relatively new community, The Anglican Orthodox Church, rooted in the older traditions associated with the Church of England. As the doors of Episcopal congregations close, the AOC is opening new ones, offering a return to the 1928 Book of Common Prayer and the King James Bible. Last year, Columbia was host to the planting of the first AOC congregation in Missouri. The Rev. Roy Morales-Kuhn described the need for the congregation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Columbia is centrally located to groups of conservative Anglicans in a five-county area,â&#x20AC;? he wrote in an email. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There have been several Episcopal parishes closed down over the last 10 years, usually in the rural areas, where the members are a bit more conservative.

Many of these â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;churchlessâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; folk have nowhere to turn for a traditional Anglican/Episcopal liturgical worship service.â&#x20AC;? Both pastors cited challenges of establishing a presence, especially that of getting the word out about their respective missions and services. Facilities and time also can be a challenge. AOC now meets twice a month and on special days in the church calendar, such as Christmas and Easter. Redemptionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hill Church lacks a permanent space, and it rents rooms at the Activity & Recreation Center on Sunday evenings for meetings. Dreyer admits this can be stressful but â&#x20AC;&#x153;a blessing as well,â&#x20AC;? as it keeps resources available for the church members to help with community service projects in the city, such as assisting refugees through the notfor-profit City of Refuge. In spite of the challenges, both pastors cite growing membership and look ahead with optimism. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a slow process,â&#x20AC;? Dreyer concluded, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good one.â&#x20AC;?

Fest makes a move Roots N Blues leaves downtown, heads to Stephens Lake Park. BY ANGEL MENDEZ | 815-1700 With a few major changes coming to one of Columbia’s biggest annual celebrations, the organizers of the Roots N Blues N BBQ Festival said they’re expecting the event’s best year yet. The music-focused fest this year will expand to three days with the addition of Sunday — Sept. 20-22 — and it will host more music and food in a new space, Stephens Lake Park. With the park offering a large open area, Thumper Entertainment President Betsy Farris said, organizers had been looking at it as a possible venue for more than three years. After conducting a trial event at the park, a fan survey indicated people wanted to see the festival move to the park from its previous home downtown. “A lot of local people have a love affair with the park,” Farris said. “We love being in the downtown area, but from an accessibility standpoint, it kind of ran out of space.” The move to the park just outside the downtown area allows businesses that were previously affected by downtown street closures for the fest to still take advantage of the visitors it attracts from more than 35 states. Megan McConachie, Web and communications manager at the Columbia Convention and Visitors Bureau, said the new venue will

create a new atmosphere without direct downtown involvement. “A lot of the time, people could duck into a coffee shop or a restaurant for a slice of pizza,” she said. “It will change how people experience the event, but it’s also moving more toward that mainstream festival feel with it being outdoors and spread out more.” Farris said the connection between downtown and Roots N Blues will continue via a shuttle service. Festival participants can purchase passes to ride between the two areas as often as they need. “We’re encouraging all of the local people to come downtown as they have in years past, park in the downtown garages and then hop on the endless shuttle,” Farris said. “It’ll be the best of both worlds. We’ll have people who will come downtown and shop and then buzz out to the venue and listen to some music.” To promote that partnership, the night before the festival will kick off with participating downtown shops and restaurants creating window displays and festival specials. Another change this year involves the discontinuation of the barbecue competition. Festival Director Julie King said in the past, competitors’ food could not be approved by the health department for the public to eat. So this fall, instead of having a contest, festival organizers plan to host 15 to 20 new vendors to provide a larger selection of barbecue as actual dining options. Also, Farris said, the addition of Sunday to the schedule will make room for a brunch featuring gospel legend Mavis Staples and other gospel artists.

documentary filmmakers and fans from across the country, the annual event typically held over several days in late February and early March features some films discovered at Sundance, Toronto and other festivals. Attendees watch screenings, talk with directors and celebrate at parties between films. MARCH

The Del McCoury Band performs at the 2012 edition of the Roots N Blues N BBQ festival in downtown Columbia. This fall, the fest moves to Stephens Lake Park.

Roots N Blues is just one of Columbia’s hallmark festivals. Another major draw is the annual True/False Film Fest, a documentary film showcase that continues to gain international attention. The late-February/early March event marked its 10th anniversary in 2013. “For it to grow into something that popular and that respected in such a short amount of time is pretty incredible,” McConachie said. Columbia residents also favor the Columbia Art League’s Art in the Park, McConachie said. The event at Stephens Lake Park typically spans two days during the first full weekend in June. “It brings in dozens and dozens of artists from across the country with every medium from paintings to glass art,” McConachie

said. “It’s really a great combination of being in the beautiful park setting and shopping for art.” She also noted Inside Columbia Magazine’s Food and Wine Festival, which draws a regional crowd, including visitors from Kansas City and St. Louis. McConachie said the affair includes a “grand tasting” of more than 400 wines from around the world. McConachie said the crowds for all these events serve to boost Columbia as a tourism destination. “It encourages people to visit the area even when there aren’t any festivals going on,” she said. “When we have people here throughout the year, it has a great economic impact and really adds to the culture and atmosphere of our city.”

CULTURE From left, Phylshawn Johnson, Josh Chittum, Jeremiah Lotven and Bryan Degase practice to perform as the band Well Hidden Wolf on Oct. 30. The group was formed as part of the Patchwork Project contest at Roxy’s that matched up members of area bands to form new ensembles.

Music scene revival picks up steam Artists team up to promote work. BY AARIK DANIELSEN | 815-1731 Fairly or not, rock musicians can be pegged as attention-seekers or troublemakers. Lately, Columbia bands have been trying to cause a scene, in the most positive way possible. Taking words such as “unity,” “support” and “sustainability” to heart, the efforts of these musical minds off stage have often been as creative as the music they make on it. Central to this current push was the January release of “Revival,” a locals-only compilation featuring 17 acts in styles ranging from indie pop to traditional blues, hard rock to Americana. “Revival” put these artists in proximity, but local shows got many of them playing on the same stage. Last fall, the venue Roxy’s hosted The Patchwork Project, a contest in which members of area bands battled with rather than against one another, randomly forming new ensembles, then performing new material. On its heels, Roxy’s hosted Locals Only, a quick-and-dirty

eight-band showcase meant to spotlight the scene’s diversity. David Kemper, who fronts the band MoonRunner, had a hand in organizing “Revival” and the Patchwork show, collaborating with Roxy’s owner Jesse Garcia and local marketing firm Kitchen Table Promotion. For Kemper, the aim was simple: sparking interest in a local music scene that was long on talent but perhaps short on enthusiasm, with bands competing for attention among a number of entertainment options. This sort of for-locals-by-locals push seems to take place every five years or so as a group of artists makes a concerted effort, musician and venue owner Wes Wingate said. He thinks the current wave of enthusiasm has a good chance to make a difference — as Columbia grows, he thinks, the scene will grow with it. The release of “Revival” was akin to “shooting up a flare gun,” signaling how many good bands exist here, he said. Wingate’s band, Stingrays, contributed a track to the CD, and his venue, The Bridge, books local music six nights a week. In the wake of “Revival,” Columbia radio station BXR has devoted more airtime to local acts, something that’s

almost unheard of in these corporate-controlled radio days, Wingate said. Not only are more eyes and ears being directed to local music, but bands within the scene are paying more attention to each other. Greater familiarity has equaled greater unity, Kemper said, as bands promote and attend each other’s shows with more frequency. Realizing how well their sounds complement, some are booking concerts together for the first time, and, Kemper said, at least one Patchwork Project ensemble is still plugging away. Richard King, who has owned The Blue Note venue for more than 30 years, said he sees a great degree of mutual respect in the current scene. “I think they understand that they’re all in this together,” he said, invoking the axiom that a rising tide lifts all boats. For those tides raising those boats to remain high, certain buoys are

required, including infrastructure — venues and recording studios — and the commitment to not overplaying one’s own market, Wingate said. He and King said Columbia bands have unique opportunities because the city is a relatively cheap place to live and create and is situated along Interstate 70, allowing easy access to other Midwestern scenes. A college town is inherently transient, which can be both a blessing and curse to its music scene. On the plus side, people are arriving every day with new creative blood, King said. However, unity and momentum can be hard to sustain as potential fans come and go and bands break up, Wingate said. On the horizon is a second Patchwork Project show sometime this summer. Kemper also would like to spread Columbia’s scene to other parts of the Midwest through a show swap in which local bands can team with acts from St. Louis or Lawrence, Kan. His ultimate hope is that when people think of Columbia, they think first of music, just as they do with Austin or Seattle. The raw material is here, he said, it’s just a matter of organization and, perhaps, a matter of time.

Fairground busy year-round BY JODIE JACKSON JR. | 815-1713 It probably still comes as a surprise to some residents that a 230-acre property just north of the city limits is one of Columbiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s busiest venues. The Central Missouri Events Center, formerly known as the Boone County Fairgrounds, at 5212 N. Oakland Gravel Road, has easy access to Highway 63 and Interstate 70. With arenas, barns, multipurpose buildings, a 3,000-capacity grandstand, RV hook-ups and ample parking, the center hosts events year-round. The county-owned property again will host the 2013 Boone County Fair from July 23-27. A variety of entertainment has already been scheduled, and organizers expect the list to continue to grow. For the first time, tickets for this summerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fair will be available online. The Boone County Commission is working to determine the venueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economic impact on Columbia and Boone County. Visitors bring revenue to the area by staying in hotels, dining at local restaurants and shopping. Some of the events that occur throughout the year at the center include the Columbia Kennel Club Dog Show, RK Gun Shows, Missouri Paint Horse Club Horse Shows, automotive swap meets, the county fair, the Boone County Draft Horse Sale, tractor pulls, confer-

ences and seminars, and antique shows. Continuing improvements to the facilities and grounds are being made by TAG Events LLC, a management team contracted by the county commission since October 2011. The fairground had been running in the red for several years, and the facilities and grounds were deteriorating. The county commission established a half-cent recreation district sales tax in 2011 to generate revenue for facility and infrastructure improvements. TAG was the only bidder in late 2011 to a request for proposals that sought a fairground management firm. TAGâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s management contract, which runs through the end of 2013, is a â&#x20AC;&#x153;reverseâ&#x20AC;? lease that provides an operating subsidy, a utility subsidy and funding for capital repair and improvements. After cleaning the grounds and tending to maintenance needs and other repairs, TAG worked with the county commission to rebrand the fairground as a regional entertainment venue and last summer changed the name to Central Missouri Events Center.

Hidden treasures are just around the corner BY CAROLINE DOHACK

From left, Kat Prescott, Dave Brouder and John Quint chat in the catacombs below the Artlandish Gallery during a May 23 fundraiser. Local artists sell their wares out of the maze-like basement gallery space.

Three Creeks Conservation Area. | 815-1727 In this issue, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gotten wind of several of Columbiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s must-see attractions. While we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think pizza, football or big trees get boring, sometimes we crave something off the beaten path. Here are some alternative experiences to check out. Artlandish Galleriesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; catacombs.

Located in the North Village Arts District, Artlandish Gallery doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t look big. But walk toward the back and go downstairs, and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll enter the catacombs, a meandering bazaar where some 60 local artists sell their wares. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not hard to get lost among the fine art, pottery, glasswork, jewelry, fibers and craft offerings. You might also get a chance to chat with the artists, some of whom call the nearby North Village Studios home. For more information, visit or call 4422999.

Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get us wrong: Rock Bridge Memorial State Park and the Katy Trail are wonderful. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why they get so busy when the weather is nice. For a less crowded but equally picturesque nature outing, try Three Creeks Conservation Area. It gets its name for the three creeks â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Bonne Femme, Turkey and Bass creeks â&#x20AC;&#x201D; that flow through its 1,500 acres, most of which is wooded. An 8-mile multi-use trail, open for hiking, biking and horseback riding, will take you past caves and bluffs, and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a 3-mile interpretive trail as well. For more information, visit mdc. or call 815-7900. CoMo Derby Dames. Fishnets. Tattoos. Roller skates. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not to like? The women of the CoMo Derby Dames, a flat-track roller derby league, are sure to thrill. Roller derby is one of the few full-contact sports for women, but thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an element of theatricality to it as well.

You can catch a bout at Sk8 Zone in Jefferson City, or you can lace up your skates and join them. Just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget your kneepads. For more information, visit Beyond Faurot Field. Obviously, the University of Missouriâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tiger football and basketball teams are hugely popular, but you can get tickets to other sports, such as volleyball, baseball, softball, soccer, wrestling, gymnastics and track, for relatively cheap. Oh, and while the football and basketball teams have been largely outmuscled by their new SEC competition, some of these teams â&#x20AC;&#x201D; notably the highly ranked softball team â&#x20AC;&#x201D; do pretty well for themselves. For more information, visit www. Little Liberty. If a big trip to New York isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t in the cards, a little trip to the Gentry Building, 1 S. Seventh St., might be in order. There in the lobby youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll find a small-scale copper replica of the Statue of Liberty,

which the Boy Scouts gave to the city in 1950 to commemorate the Scoutsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 40th anniversary, which was themed â&#x20AC;&#x153;Strengthen the Arm of Liberty.â&#x20AC;? Photo opp, anyone? Alternabikes. Columbia is a great place to pedal around, but if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re bored with your bicycle, try some of the two-, three- and four-wheeled alternatives available for rent at local bike shops. Couples might get a kick out of a tandem bicycle jaunt. You can find rental tandems at Cyclextreme Bicycle Warehouse. Recumbent bicycles tend to be easier on the knees than traditional upright styles, and there are a number of varieties. These youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll find at Trailside Cafe & Bike Shop in Rocheport. For more information, call Cyclextreme at 874-7044 or Trailside Cafe & Bike Shop at (573) 6982702. Laws Observatory. Located in the Physics Building on the MU campus, Laws Observatory is open Wednesday nights from 8 to 10 p.m.

when skies are clear. Faculty from the physics and astronomy department or members of the Central Missouri Astronomical Association are on hand to help point out such sights as Saturnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rings and notable stellar clusters. The observatory also is open when extra-special extraterrestrial events are expected to happen. For more information, call 8823335. Talking Horse Productions. You could check out the latest big-budget yawn-fest at the cinema, or you could mix things up with some live theater. Founded in 2012, this not-forprofit group puts on live theatrical productions at the intimate â&#x20AC;&#x201D; read: small â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Berlin Theatre in the North Village Arts District.

Notable properties keep local history at forefront BY ANDREW DENNEY

ONLINE: | 815-1719 As Columbia grows and changes, city government and some private citizens have worked in recent years to ensure that historic buildings continue to stand as reminders of a simpler time. The Columbia Historic Preservation Commission keeps a Most Notable Properties list and recognizes as many as 10 new properties each year. The properties must be at least 50 years old, according to the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website, and can be properties that are or were used for residential, commercial or industrial purposes. Recent additions to the list include the well-known Booches Billiard Hall on Ninth Street and, just about a block to the west, the Niedermeyer apartment building, of which some portions have been standing since 1837, two years before the official birth of the University of Missouri. Within the past several years, though, historic structures, even some with ties to Columbiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s notable forebears, have been demolished, which has led some residents to call for tougher preservation laws. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you lose the buildings, you lose the stories that go with them,â&#x20AC;? said Patrick Earney, a local engineer who is a member of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Historic Preservation Commission. The preservation commission was formed in 1998 and concerned itself then with lesscontroversial issues, such as populating the Most Notable Properties list. But the 2008 demolition of a Civil War-era house on Blue Ridge Road that once belonged to the son of Odon Guitar, a Union general in the war, was followed with a push from the commission to impose a 10-day waiting period for applications to demolish structures that are at least 50 years old. After the demolition of the Annie Fisher House on Old Highway 63 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the home of one of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first black businesswomen â&#x20AC;&#x201D; in 2011, the commission pushed to sharpen its teeth further and lengthen the waiting period for demolition to 30 days. That change was approved in 2013. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Before, you could just walk in with a

sledgehammer, sign a form, walk out and start tearing down buildings,â&#x20AC;? said Brent Gardner, also a member of the preservation commission and a local Realtor. While the commission now has stronger rules on its side, Gardner said the local business community is taking a stronger interest in preserving and revitalizing historic structures. A recent uproar came with a proposal to demolish the Niedermeyer, which houses older, affordable apartments, to allow the construction of high-rise student apartments by a St. Louis developer looking to enter Columbiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s booming student housing market. In its current state, the Niedermeyer would not win awards for the most beautiful building in downtown Columbia. But its impending destruction touched a nerve: An online petition to protest the demolition attracted more than 1,600 signatures, and residents took to public meetings to speak out against the demolition. In March, a local landlord stepped up to purchase and preserve the building. John Ott, owner of Alley A Reality, is credited with taking part in one of the first major historic restoration projects in the downtown area in the 21st century. With the help of historic tax credits, he was able to restore the façade to the Ballenger building on the northwest corner of Ninth and Cherry streets, which now houses a Kaldiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Coffee location, in 2004. Ott said the rustic appearance of downtown buildings is part of the appeal of the area for vendors and customers alike, an added incentive for businesses to put value into historic preservation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It takes a significant effort on the part of private parties to help maintain the historical integrity of some of our important downtown buildings,â&#x20AC;? Ott said.

Ninth St. 208 St. Joseph St. 914 Westwinds Drive | 815-1731 Columbia has gained a reputation in the past decade as a destination point for filmmakers — a place to gather, commiserate and gain support from interested audiences. True/False Film Fest has brought documentarians, among them Oscar winners and visionaries of the form, to town each of the past 10 springs. And leading lights among female filmmakers have traveled to Columbia for the Citizen Jane Film Festival, which celebrated its fifth go-round last fall. Should recent trends continue, Columbia will round out that reputation and become known as an incubator for great filmmaking. Several Columbia-connected artists have sent work into the wider world this year and been lauded for their cinematic output. Perhaps the most notable example is “We Always Lie to Strangers,” a documentary co-directed by True/ False co-founder David Wilson and University of Missouri graduate AJ Schnack. Also playing prominent roles in the film’s making were MU graduate Nathan Truesdell and former Columbia resident Matthew Mills. The film looks at the changing face of America through the lives of four musical families in Branson. The concept crystallized in the minds of Wilson and Schnack as they considered both the wondrous sway the town held over them as children and the embarrassment with which some Missourians view the entertainment mecca. “Because of that tension, I always knew that there was a story in Branson that would be different than what I imagined and, hopefully, would surprise everyone,” Wilson told the Tribune earlier this year. Surprise or not, “We Always Lie to Strangers” has become a buzzworthy film, earning Wilson and Co. a

host of frequent-flier miles and acclaim. It debuted in March at the South by Southwest Festival in Austin, Texas, chosen as just one of eight nonfiction films from more than 900 submissions. Wilson and Schnack walked away with a special jury recognition for documentary directing. In addition, the film has screened at Hot Docs in Toronto, the Nashville Film Festival and North Carolina’s Full Frame Festival, among others. Two Stephens College professors, Kate Kogut and Chase Thompson, also saw their respective films score festival screenings this year. Kogut’s “Nooner” landed at the Beloit International Film Festival in Wisconsin, and Thompson’s “Threshold’ was programmed at the Fargo Film Festival. Both projects were shot in Columbia. Thompson’s work grew out of his interaction with his Stephens students. Until recently, he had been primarily a nonfiction artist. “Zielinski,” a documentary he co-directed with fellow Columbian Ryan Walker, screened at True/False in 2011. “Threshold,” which considers the consequences of the Castle Doctrine, was his first narrative script, penned as a teaching exercise for the school’s Summer Film Institute, he said. Other locally connected works include “A Teacher,” a feature film produced by former Columbia resident Kim Sherman and shot by longtime resident Andrew Droz Palermo that is gaining steam after its appearance at Sundance; “Awful Nice,” directed by former University of Missouri student Todd Sklar and co-produced by local Brock Williams; and “You’re Next,” a horror flick written and produced by Hickman High School graduate Simon Barrett that also counts Sherman and Palermo among its crew.

Arts projects get creative with crowd-funding BY AMY WILDER | 815-1714 Online fundraising through third-party platforms is a growing trend in the Columbia arts scene, with musicians, filmmakers and artists trying to get a leg up from the community when short on project funding. University of Missouri graduate student Aaron Fischer recently completed a successful Indiegogo drive to cover the cost of transportation to a summer residency. In return, Fischer will create artwork for supporters during his time in the program. He chose the Indiegogo platform over the popular Kickstarter website because it would allow him to keep funds even if his goal was not met, plus “it seemed like it was more geared toward an artistic side,” he said. One of Columbia’s biggest crowdfunded projects in the past year was Ragtag Cinema’s Kickstarter campaign to make the switch to digital projectors. The theater lacked about

The community response was so overwhelming. It was very touching. ... People really care about what we do.” — TRACY LANE, Ragtag Cinema executive director

$80,000 of the $200,000 necessary to complete the conversion, Executive Director Tracy Lane said. Throughout the summer of 2012, staff and board members brainstormed about how to close the gap. After researching what other arthouse theaters were doing to stay afloat, they decided to pursue the campaign, which was launched in September after some viral advertising. To pique curiosity, Ragtag began to put out the message that robots were coming, adding clips of robots to pre-film trailers and putting “pictures of robots in our newsletters and all over the building,” Lane said. “I think that really helped the success of our Kickstarter, too,” she


said. “Before we ever launched it, we got people wanting to know what’s going on with the robots.” Local artist Greg Orloff created a robot, Lumen, which was featured in a film for the campaign. Lane said Lumen will be donated to the city as a gift, partly as a thank you to the community for supporting Ragtag and partly because the venue does not have a safe place to display it. Lane was initially skeptical about using Kickstarter, she said, but it turned out to be the right choice. “The community response was so overwhelming,” she said. “It was very touching. ... People really care about what we do. People really want us to be in this community, and there’s nothing more rewarding than that.”

Around the time Ragtag was launching its campaign, Missouri Contemporary Ballet received an invitation to the International Garden Expo in Suncheon Bay, South Korea. It was told all expenses would be paid upon arrival, said Joanne Sandorfi, MCB’s ballet mistress and director of operations . This left the company with the task of coming up with airfare for 12 people. Like Ragtag, MCB spent several months brainstorming. Sandorfi said the company was hesitant to have a traditional fundraiser. “We already have a fall fundraiser,” she said. “We have a spring Dancing with Missouri Stars fundraiser. … A lot of times it’s our same supporters, very loyal supporters, who come — and we didn’t want to have to ask them again. They already give us money every year, which we’re so grateful for.” And then Ragtag’s Kickstarter project raised more than its goal, “and that was inspiring,” Sandorfi

said. “When they completed their successful one, that was kind of our cue to say, ‘OK, we can do this.’ ” The group promoted the cause on social media and at performances. “It’s hard because you don’t want to feel like you’re being too pushy,” Sandorfi said. “And you don’t want to feel like that’s the only thing you talk about for a month, but really that’s what you have to do.” A few days before the campaign ended, MCB was still several hundred dollars short and getting nervous. If a project on Kickstarter is not fully funded, all donations are returned to backers, and the project returns to square one. Several people who had pledged raised their pledge amounts. The final push came from a neighboring business — Melody Beach at the Beach Salon contributed the last pledge needed. “It was great, especially because it was someone in our building. It was so nice of her,” Sandorfi said.

Library offers mix of education and fun Programs include annual One Read.



Information about the library and electronic services such as e-book and audio downloads are available at

With more than half of the residents in the area carrying cards from Daniel Boone Regional Library facilities, the Columbia Public Library and its sister facilities in the library system continue to be busy places. The Columbia library, 100 W. Broadway, is one of three in the DBRL system, which also includes the Southern Boone County Public Library in Ashland and the Callaway County Public Library in Fulton, plus bookmobile services and a locker-based book checkout system in Hallsville. According to its annual report, in 2012, the library system saw more than 2.3 million checkouts, with more than 1.8 million at the Columbia library alone. More than 900,000 library visits were made. The collection included more than 556,000 items, including nearly 13,000 downloadable electronic and audio books. The Southern Boone County Public Library moved to a new space in 2012, leasing a building on

Main Street in Ashland with 6,500 square feet of space. Each year, the library encourages residents to participate in a community reading program focused on one book. This year’s One Read selection is the first by a local author: “The Ruins of Us” by Keija Parsinnen. For more information on the program, go to oneread.dbrl. org. In addition to the main branch book drops, the Columbia library also allows patrons to return books at outdoor drop locations around the city: at Landmark Bank, 100 Kennesaw Ridge; Commerce Bank, 2000 Bernadette Drive; The Callaway Bank, 3200 W. Broadway; Landmark Bank, 1904 E. Broadway; and First State Community Bank, 300 Diego Drive. Residents with a photo ID and proof of current address such as a utility bill can get a library card at any library location or the bookmobile. Having a library card allows patrons using the library’s website

Visit the past through museums’ galleries BY KARYN SPORY

WHAT KEEPS YOU IN COLUMBIA? “For me, Columbia has been full of opportunity — from education to work, family and friends, great college sports, a wide variety of locally owned restaurants, bars and other entertainment, conveniently located in the middle of the state with easy access to all other major cities, especially St. Louis and Kansas City.” — Tony St. Romaine, Columbia deputy city manager | 815-1705 Although school is out for the summer, there are still many opportunities for kids and adults to learn something new or brush up on their history in one of Columbia’s many museums. Jenifer Flink, curator of the Boone County Museum and Galleries, said the museum features four gallery areas — the Walters History Museum, the Montminy Art Gallery, the Village of Boone Junction and the Maplewood House. “This really provides visitors the opportunity to see a wide variety of things within the park setting,” Flink said. For people interested in Victorian houses, Flink said a tour of the Maplewood House would be a good experience. The Maplewood House was built in 1877 by Boone County pioneer Slater Ensor Lenoir and his wife, Margaret Bradford Lenoir. For a deeper look into a pioneer lifestyle, Flink recommends a visit to the Village at Boone Junction. The village boasts five establishments furnished with authentic period artifacts and will give guests a deeper knowledge of how Boone

County operated during its early years. Another exhibit focuses on what life was like for Missourians during the Civil War. The exhibit, featured in the Walters History Museum, specifically focuses on three local people in 1863. “We give an opportunity for them to tell their story in the setting of the Civil War,” Flink said. The Boone County Museum and Galleries is at 3801 Ponderosa St. The museum is open 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Sunday and 9:30 a.m. to 4:40 p.m. Saturday. For information, call (573) 443-8936. The State Historical Society of Missouri, at 1020 Lowry St. on the University of Missouri campus, also has an exhibit dedicated to the Civil War, but the exhibit looks at a different view of wartime. Joan Stack, curator of art at the State Historical Society of Missouri, said the gallery previously had an exhibit that chronicled the war in Missouri, but this year she wanted to do something a little different. “I had been particularly interested in these objects that were not normally understood as fine art but were very interesting,” Stack said.

The exhibit — Money, Mail and Memoria: Ephemera of the Civil War Era — features popular imagery on items that people would not normally keep or display as artwork. Items in the exhibit include currency, decorated envelopes, newspaper illustrations and even sheet music. “We had a lot of that at the society, and I thought it would be interesting to gather some of that material and give people a little bit of a vision of what the visual culture of the era was like,” Stack said. The exhibit is open through August. The gallery is open 9 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. There are many other museums and exhibits on the MU campus, including the Museum of Art and Archaeology, 109 Pickard Hall, which features exhibits from each continent and from the Paleolithic period to present day, and the Museum of Anthropology, 100 Swallow Hall. Both museums are slated to move next year while their current buildings undergo renovations; they will be relocated to Mizzou North, the former Ellis Fischel Cancer Center building on Business Loop 70.

Food trucks whet appetites in city BY MARCIA VANDERLIP | 815-1704 The food-truck trend just keeps on trucking around the country, and Columbia is getting a piece of the action. The longest-running food truck in Columbia is the Jamaican Jerk Hut, which has been around for nine years, catering events around town. But this past year, a couple of full-time food-truck cooks began selling their fare out of area parking lots, and they are winning loyal customers. Three other food trucks plan to join them soon. A city ordinance prohibits food trucks from selling along city curbs or sidewalks, so the owners get permission from private owners of local lots. The law could change soon if food-truck owners and their fans get their way: In April, the Downtown Community Improvement District sent a survey to its members asking whether they would favor allowing food trucks to park downtown in the evenings from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. Stay tuned. For now, the trucksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; whereabouts are posted on Facebook and sometimes Twitter. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a rundown of the trucks already running and others that were gearing up to open in June. All of the trucks offer catering services, as well.

JAMAICAN JERK HUT About nine years ago, Jamaican natives Rex Scott and Colin Russell

decided to bring their island barbecue to Columbia. They kept their overhead low and worked out of a hut on wheels: a trailer with a large outdoor grill. The Jamaican Jerk Hut still serves grilled jerk chicken, jerk pork and spicy-saucy wings â&#x20AC;&#x201D; as well as curry chicken, as Jamaican food is also influenced by an East Indian population, Scott said. The longtime friends both have fulltime jobs, Scott said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We do this when we have time.â&#x20AC;? Scott and Russell cater weddings, graduation parties, family reunions, company parties and tailgate parties. Find them on Facebook or call (573) 694-6086 or (573) 353-3664.

theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re â&#x20AC;&#x153;cool.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like that you get to go to the people at the concerts, the festivals and on the streets,â&#x20AC;? he said. Charles Rosenthal sold food from the Sunflower menu at Mojoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s until last August, when the truck was ready to roll. The signature dish is a boneless chicken breast â&#x20AC;&#x153;broastedâ&#x20AC;? in a house-made batter, rolled into a waffle and served with sausage/ bacon gravy or with syrup. Daniel Rosenthal said. A broaster is a pressure cooker that fries the chicken and makes it â&#x20AC;&#x153;moist and delicious,â&#x20AC;? he said. Sunflower often caters to a latenight crowd. The chicken and waffle combo is hands-down the most popular item on the menu, day or night. Among the other items are waffle-turkey-and-Jack-cheese dogs â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which are corn-battered and baked â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and the waffles, bacon and eggs. On weekend nights, the truck often parks next to the Stephens Building at Cherry and Hitt streets across from Uprise Bakery. On Sundays, Sunflower visits the North Village Art District Farmers & Artisans Market. The truck has a page on Facebook and is on Twitter with the username @sunflowerwaffle. Phone: (573)340-8725



You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t miss this truck with a big bright sunflower painted on the side. Cook Charles Rosenthal and his brother, Daniel, who lives in Los Angeles, co-own the business. Daniel Rosenthal said he wanted to invest in a food truck because

Bryan Maness has worked as a chef at Broadway Brewery and managed CafĂŠ Berlin. But his dream for some time has been to be a â&#x20AC;&#x153;food-truck chef.â&#x20AC;? Maness will soon be working out of his custom-made stainless-steel commercial kitchen on wheels. His

PEPEâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S OF COLUMBIA Some of the best tacos and tamales in the city come out of Pepeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. Pepe Perez first got his food trailer rolling in May 2012. He and his wife, Katy, a Spanish teacher at Smithton Middle School, invested in the truck together. Pepe makes the food that his family cooked in Mexico City and in Sacramento, Calif. He does all the cooking in a friendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s restaurant kitchen and employs two people to help him assemble and serve the food. He makes the fresh salsas, guacamole and the fillings for the tacos â&#x20AC;&#x201D; you will want more than one â&#x20AC;&#x201D; as well as the pork, chicken and cheesepoblano tamales. (Ask for red and green sauce.) On Fridays, he sometimes serves fish tacos and shrimp ceviche tostadas. On Saturday

mornings, he offers breakfast burritos with beans, eggs, cheese, rice and chorizo. Among the most popular items on the menu is Pepeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s marinated shredded beef, served on tacos or in burritos. Pepe parks at various locations around town from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. During the farmers market season, he is parked at North Village Art District Farmers & Artisans Market on Sundays at 126 N. Tenth St., behind Wabash Station.

The menu is rooted in family memories. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I grew up in the Ozark hills, and a lot of my inspiration as a chef has come from my grandmotherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Southern cooking,â&#x20AC;? said Maness, who will serve â&#x20AC;&#x153;local, seasonal cuisine with a helping of Southern hospitality.â&#x20AC;? Among the offerings will be biscuit sandwiches; fried green tomatoes with bacon, pimento cheese spread and arugula; a burger with Amish white cheddar, pickled turmeric summer squash and sweet Vidalia onion; a boneless pork chop with fresh goat cheese; fried chicken with peppercorn gravy and greens; sweet potato skillet fries; sweet corn fritters; and chocolate bourbon pie.

COMO DOUGH PIZZA Mark Risch has been baking for a living for 35 years and dreaming about making wood-fired pizzas for more than three. About a year and a half ago, he got the food-truck bug. Then, last year, â&#x20AC;&#x153;when Pepe started up, I decided, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Hey, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m in,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;? he said. Friends helped him invest in his truck and two portable woodburning ovens. Risch, who bakes for The Sub Shop, used the bakery as a food lab to create the perfect crust, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been working on a pizza crust recipe for about three years.â&#x20AC;? he said, describing it as â&#x20AC;&#x153;neo-Neapolitan, puffy around the edges and thin in the middle.â&#x20AC;? His ovens run at 850 to 900 degrees, he said, so a pizza takes two minutes to bake. And for the cheese, he said, he

will use â&#x20AC;&#x153;a mixture of whole-fat mozzarella and provolone. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll jack it up with a little blue cheese from Goatsbeard Farm.â&#x20AC;? He plans to use local meats and produce. The menu also will include spiedies â&#x20AC;&#x201D; chicken kebabs served on house-made buns. Risch expects to hit the streets in late June. Among the parking spots Risch has already lined up around town are the Tribune parking lot at 101 N. Fourth St.; ARTlandish Gallery lot at 1019 E. Walnut St.; and Phillips 66 at the corner of Providence and Locust streets. Times and places will be posted on the Como Dough Facebook page. Phone: (573) 356-3898

PLAYING WITH FIRE MOBILE WOOD-FIRED PIZZA Tim Eisenhauer came to Columbia to study computer programming, but five years ago, he decided he wanted to cook. He worked in the kitchen at the University Club, and for the past three years he has served as catering sous chef and kitchen manager at Les Bourgeois. While traveling, he said, he was drawn to wood-fired pizzerias and wondered why Columbia didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have one. His oven is being built in Colorado, and he hopes to be up and running at the North Village Farmers & Artisans Market by the end of June. He also will offer catering services. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want to do traditional Neapolitan style with Italian tomatoes,â&#x20AC;? Eisenhauer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll make a traditional margherita and a spicy pizza arrabbiato.â&#x20AC;? He plans to use artisan meats from Salume Beddu of St. Louis until Les Bourgeois executive chef Josh Smith gets his retail charcuterie program going. Times and places will be posted on Playing With Fireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Facebook page. Phone: (573) 579-1192.

Pizzerias offer a slice for all tastes BY MARCIA VANDERLIP | 815-1704 In a college town, pizza is king. Columbia is home to dozens of pizza options, from familiar franchises to home-grown parlors. Whether you like thin crust, deep dish, thick crust, lots of cheese, no cheese or interesting toppings, chances are good you will find what you want hereabouts. Here is a list â&#x20AC;&#x201D; in alphabetical order â&#x20AC;&#x201D; of some local favorites, including newcomers such as Pizza Tree and Brooklyn Pizzeria and longtime favorites G&Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pizzeria and Shakespeareâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s: Arrisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Pizza, 1020 E. Green Meadows, No. 102, offers a thin-crust pizza with lots of Greek-inspired toppings. Arris Pardalos has been making pizzas in Jefferson City since 1961. Building on that success, he has spread the pizza-love, opening franchise pizza restaurants in Springfield, Fulton, Osage Beach and Columbia. Babboâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Spaghetteria, 1305 Grindstone Parkway, opened in Columbia in 2011, a year after the original opened in Chesterfield. Babboâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recipes have been passed down from family in Sicily and Northern Italy. Try the classic Neapolitan-style pizzas. The signature Babboâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pizza is topped with tomato sauce, sausage, caramelized onions balsamic glaze and oregano. Brooklyn Pizzeria, 909 Cherry St., opened in April in the heart of downtown. Owner Rush Kikhia previously owned Rushâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pizzeria on Hitt Street, but it closed a couple years ago. Now heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s back in a prime location next to Harpoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. You can pick up a big slice of cheesy, NewYork style pizza for only $2.60. The Tiger Zone calzones also draw com-

ney to 32 pizzerias around the country, he returned to open Pizza Tree. The offerings include the banh mi and charredachoke island, topped with charred artichokes, red pepper sauce, onion, kalamata olives, feta, arugula and olive oil. Gilbreth uses mainly organic, locally sourced ingredients. Detroit-style square-deep-dish pizzas also are available. Shakespeareâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pizza, 225 S. Ninth St., is a landmark and a Columbia staple, particularly for University of Missouri students and alumni. The hand-tossed pies proved to be so popular that the company has branched out to two satellite locations â&#x20AC;&#x201D; one in west Columbia at 3304 W. Broadway and one in south Columbia at 3911 Peachtree Drive. The white or wheat crust can be tossed thick, medium or thin. The Masterpiece weighs 5 pounds and feeds a family of four or five. On the lighter side, the â&#x20AC;&#x153;heart-healthyâ&#x20AC;? Darwin â&#x20AC;&#x201D; named for former Mayor Darwin Hindman â&#x20AC;&#x201D; is topped with red onions, green peppers, artichoke hearts and tomatoes. Tonyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pizza Palace, 17 N. Fifth St. The sign out front hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t changed in 40 years, and neither has the friendly atmosphere and the thin, crisp, house-made crust. If you like Greek food, try the Zeus with feta, onion, green peppers and gyro meat. This pizzeria also features savory Greek food made by coowner Asimina Veros. Wise Guys Pizza, 7 N. Sixth St., is one of the local go-to spots for hungry late-night pizza lovers: Wise Guys delivers until 2 a.m. Sunday through Tuesday and until 3 a.m. Wednesday through Saturday. The hand-tossed thin-crust pizzas are enormous.

pliments. G&Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pizzaria, 2101 W. Broadway. Alex and Pano Terzopoulos have been using family recipes to make thin-crust pizza with fresh ingredients in the Crossroads Shopping Center since 1977. Service is swift, and the place fills up before and after Missouri Tigers football and basketball games. The crust is infused with olive oil, making it fairly thin and buttery, not bready. Slices of pepperoni fly out at lunchtime. But the latest hit at G&Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is the feta pizza. No sauce is used. The feta melts along with the mozzarella. Gumbyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pizza, 1201 E. Broadway, has a reputation for being inexpensive and good. It is a popular late-night stop for college students coming out of the bars.

911 services will see upgrade under new tax BY BRENNAN DAVID | 815-1718 Boone County officials are placing a priority on emergency response and preparedness after voters approved a new tax to fund upgrades to 911 and emergency management services. Voters on April 2 endorsed a permanent, countywide three-eighths-cent sales tax to construct a new joint communications facility, hire more personnel and improve equipment for the two agencies. With 57 percent voter approval, the new sales tax means the Columbia/Boone County Joint Communications, or 911, and Emergency Management will go from being under city control to county government control. The tax was placed on the ballot by the

Boone County Commission because the two agencies needed significant upgrades in equipment and personnel, said Presiding Commissioner Dan Atwill, who deemed county residents to be at risk because of the deficiencies. Between June and January, an average of 128 callers per month seeking emergency services waited more than a minute for an answer. “Voters of the county have identified this as our weakest link, and we are going to fix it,” Atwill said in a speech to supporters on election night. Collection of the tax will begin in October and will fund a new $11.3 million facility to be built on the Boone County Sheriff’s Department campus in north Columbia. It also will

I-70 interchanges undergo major work BY BRENNAN DAVID | 815-1718 Construction projects at two prominent Columbia intersections with Interstate 70 will be underway this summer as growth calls for change. Motorists traveling I-70 through Boone County will find ongoing improvements at the Stadium Boulevard and Route Z exits. The Stadium/I-70 project, which extends south to Broadway, began in March and aims to alleviate traffic backups that happen in the area that is home to four shopping centers. The work on Route Z is intended to prepare for increases in traffic tied to the August opening of Battle High School in northeast Columbia. “Work is being done at night to minimize delays,” said Kirsten Munck of the Missouri Department of Transportation. “Both projects are on schedule.” Motorists can expect to see construction signs and crews in the area of the Stadium/I-70 area through late this year. Columbia contractor Emery Sapp and Sons is handling the $12.8 million project, which includes replacing the Stadium bridge over I-70. The result of the bridge replacement will be Mid-Missouri’s first diverging diamond interchange. In addition to the new interchange, the project will widen Stadium from just north of I-70 to south of Broadway. The work also includes widening Bernadette from Knipp Street to Beverly Drive. Completion is scheduled for late 2014. It is funded through a cost-share agreement between MoDOT, Columbia and three transportation development districts in the area. The diverging diamond interchange should be completed by the Christmas shopping season and will allow free left turns. That means vehicles don’t cross opposing traffic. MoDOT officials said the interchange can more efficiently handle high traffic.

“The diamond interchange helps clear leftturn movements faster than a standard interchange,” Munck said. “The interchange as it is right now has heavy left-turn volume.” The diverging diamond interchange works this way: Motorists on Stadium entering the interchange are directed to the opposite side of the road after driving through a set of traffic lights. Those who want to get on the interstate turn left onto the ramp without stopping for more lights or crossing opposing traffic, while drivers going straight proceed through a second set of traffic lights redirecting them to the right side of the road after leaving the interchange. At Route Z, the $2.3 million road and bridge improvement project includes the replacement and widening of the I-70 crossing east of Columbia. Other parts of the project include resurfacing Route Z from I-70 to St. Charles Road and building a roundabout at Route Z and St. Charles Road. In addition, shoulders will be added on Route Z from I-70 to St. Charles. The project is being paid for by Boone County and MoDOT. “Contractors have been working around the wet season we have had this spring without getting off schedule,” Munck said. The most vocal advocates for a new overpass and other road improvements were Boone County Presiding Commissioner Dan Atwill and Sheriff Dwayne Carey. Both warned of dangerous traffic conditions that might be created by the opening of Battle High, 7575 E. St. Charles. The work is scheduled for completion by Aug. 5. Motorists can access Route Z via the north outer road from Route J in Callaway County, while Rangeline Road can be accessed by taking the south outer road from Lake of the Woods/St. Charles Road. More information can be found at

fund $8.65 million in equipment and additions in staffing for 911 and Emergency Management. The annual budget will be an estimated $8.6 million, including debt retirement for the facility. Until the new facility is built, Joint Communications will remain at its current location within the Columbia Police Department in downtown Columbia. The construction project has not yet been bid. “Callers will notice a difference the first day we are in the new facility,” said Joe Piper, interim director. “No one should wait on hold as long as they do now with the upgrades.” Emergency Management also will move into the 20,000-square-foot facility, where six staffers will share planning, preparedness, administrative and training duties. The building will include accommodations experts say are needed for a multiday disaster, including an emergency operations center, or EOC. Until collection of the tax begins in October, Boone County does not have any fulltime personnel in Emergency Management. Instead, grant funding is divided among interim Emergency Management Director Scott Olsen and five Boone County Fire Protection District staffers who perform part-

time duties for Emergency Management. Grant funding has always been the lone source of funding for Emergency Management personnel. “A functional EOC will give officials the ability to conduct a proper response to an emergency or disaster,” Olsen said. “The real work takes place before and after an EOC activation. Planning, training and preparedness get you ready, and the administrative function kind of sorts things out afterward.” Olsen is performing double duty as he is still serving as fire chief for the Boone County Fire Protection District. Before Olsen took over Emergency Management, the city’s EOC was in the basement of the city Armory on Ash Street. In the event of a disaster now, the EOC would be activated at the fire district headquarters at 2201 I-70 Drive N.W. Starting Oct. 1, Columbia’s sales tax rate will increase to 7.975 percent with the collection of the new 911 tax. Centralia, Sturgeon and Columbia will share the same rate, which will be the highest in Boone County. Unincorporated Boone County will have a rate of 5.975 percent. Those rates do not include additional sales taxes in special taxing districts throughout the county.

High school teamsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; success keeps rivalry strong Battle Spartans to enter the mix. BY RUS BAER | 815-1787 A year before another Columbia public high school enters the mix, Hickman returned the sense of rivalry to its cross-town athletic meetings with Rock Bridge. The 2012-13 school year marked a shift in athletic superiority Rock Bridge had enjoyed over its Columbia rival for the past several years. Hickman announced its return to relevancy with streak-breaking victories over Rock Bridge in softball, football and boys basketball. All-state outfielder Sydney Washington and Hickmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s softball team started the shift with two wins over the Bruins. The first ended a fouryear losing streak to Rock Bridge, and the second sent the Kewpies into the playoffs for the first time since 2008, where they advanced to the Class 4 quarterfinals.

Don Shrubshell/Tribune

Hickmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;den Cox is congratulated by his brother Drae Cox after winning his fourth straight state championship. Cox ďŹ nished his career with a 205-3 mark.

The football team followed suit with two wins over Rock Bridge, which had won the past three years. A 22-21 come-from-behind win at Faurot Field in the regular season snapped that streak and was followed by a stirring 10-7 overtime victory at Hickman in a district semifinal. The boys basketball team outdid the softball and football squads by finally snapping a 21-game losing

streak to Rock Bridge on Dec. 11 with a 55-48 win in the first basketball game played in Hickmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new gymnasium. The Kewpies added two more wins over the Bruins during the season and advanced to the state semifinals for the first time since 1982. Led by all-state guards Jimmy Whitt, a sophomore, and junior Chris Clark, the Kewpies finished third in Class 5 with a 27-3 record. While Rock Bridge was tripped up by the Kewpies in those three sports, the Bruins were plenty dominant in others. The girls golf and girls basketball teams both defended state championships. Makayla Barker and Kaitlyn Marsh led the Bruins to their second state title in golf, and Sophie Cunningham and Chayla Cheadle were first-team allstate picks in basketball. Entering the final month of spring sports, Rock Bridge had also already picked up state trophies in girls tennis (second) and boys soccer (third).

Hickman, Rock Bridge and Columbiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second-year Catholic high school, Tolton, also had several individuals make their marks at the state level. Hickman senior Nicole Mello placed second at the Class 4 girls cross-country championships, and the Missouri recruit was poised to challenge for more state medals in May during the track an field championships competing in the 1,600-, 3,200-meter runs. Rock Bridge freshman swimmer Kelly Tackett won a state title in the 200-yard freestyle and was second by a second in the 500 free to Parkway North senior Heather Luendstrom, who set a state record of 4 minutes, 55.53 seconds. In wrestling, Hickman senior Jâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;den Cox completed his highschool career as Columbiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only four-time state champion. Competing as a Class 4 heavyweight despite weighing no more than 215 pounds, the future Missouri Tiger went 56-0 as a senior to finish his career with

Best Products + Best Price + Exceptional Service = A Great Value




a 205-3 mark. Tolton sophomore Jaydin Clayton is halfway to joining Cox as Columbiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only four-time champion and perhaps on his way to making some history of his own. The two-time Class 1 champion at 113 and 132 pounds, respectively, has yet to lose a high school match. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll take a 67-0 mark into his junior year. A year after winning the Class 4 title at 132 pounds, Rock Bridge junior Sam Crane led three Bruins medalists with a runner-up finish at 138. The 2013-14 school year will bring a new Columbia foe into the fold with the opening of Battle High School. The new public school will not have seniors in its first year, but the Spartans will compete at the varsity level in every sport. All teams will be eligible for the playoffs except for football, which still managed to fill a nine-game varsity schedule with seven home games in 2013.

Show-Me games draw athletes by the thousands BY MATT NESTOR | 815-1786 Entering its 29th year, the Show-Me State Games has long boasted that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the largest state games in the nation â&#x20AC;&#x201D; topping the likes of New York, Florida and California. The yearly summer Olympic-style sports festival is the biggest because it welcomes â&#x20AC;&#x201D; from in-state and out â&#x20AC;&#x201D; all comers across all age and skill levels to compete in about 40 sports. Ken Ash, the eventâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s executive director since 2002, said the Show-Me State Games succeeds because of the support from volunteers and sponsors on a yearly basis.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had a great staff in place for a number of years,â&#x20AC;? Ash said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think they really care about the image of the games.â&#x20AC;? He noted an observation from Kelley King, the writer of a 2003 Sports Illustrated feature on the state games. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She covered the Salt Lake City Olympics, and she said the Show-Me State Games was run better. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quite a compliment from somebody who has seen both,â&#x20AC;? Ash said. The 2012 Show-Me State Games had 27,873 athletes compete in all types of fare from recreational (table tennis and miniature golf), to competitive (basketball and wrestling), to niche (pickleball and synchronized swim-

ming). The opening weekend of the 2013 SMSG is slated for June 14-16 and coincides with the Senior Games. The event continues July 19-21 and July 26-28. Medal winners automatically qualify for the State Games of America, to be held July 30-Aug. 4 in Hershey and Harrisburg, Pa. The Show-Me State Games is hosted by the University of Missouri, and because the event does not receive money from the state, it relies on entry fees, merchandise sales and corporate sponsorships to remain self-sufficient. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We also have great sponsors who have

stayed with us for an extended time,â&#x20AC;? Ash said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The turnover in that isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t very high, so weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not out looking for 10, 12 new sponsors every year. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big thing.â&#x20AC;? The event also benefits from an army of volunteers who donate their time. Ash said it takes about 1,000 volunteers to make the Show-Me State Games and the Senior Games run smoothly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think one of the biggest things is the corporate volunteer program,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If your company has 12 or more volunteers, the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name gets on the back of the T-shirt. That program alone generates about 600 volunteers.â&#x20AC;?

lineup and his offensive line ravaged with injuries, the Tigers struggled offensively and stumbled to an 0-4 start in league play with losses to Georgia, South Carolina, Vanderbilt and Alabama — three of those defeats at home. Missouri regained its footing with wins over Kentucky and Tennessee and nearly upset Florida on the road, but a nonconference home loss to Syracuse all but clinched the Tigers’ losing season. Fellow SEC newcomer Texas A&M finished off Missouri the next week with a 30-point thrashing. The Tigers had a few outstanding individual performances, including tailback Kendial Lawrence’s first 1,000-yard rushing season. Defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson earned first-team All-SEC honors and became the school’s sixth firstround NFL draft pick since 2009

when the New York Jets selected him 13th overall in April’s draft. Pinkel spent the first month of the offseason reshuffling his coaching staff after the surprise resignation of longtime quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator David Yost. Pinkel handed the coordinator duties to offensive line coach Josh Henson, reassigned Andy Hill from receivers to quarterbacks and hired veteran SEC assistant Pat Washington to coach the receivers. Washington inherits several veteran receivers, including senior starters Marcus Lucas and L’Damian Washington, plus sophomore Dorial Green-Beckham, who emerged as the team’s top playmaker during spring practices. “We have to turn it around,” Lucas said. “We had our first season in the SEC last year. It wasn’t the impact we wanted to bring. There’s a sense of urgency with everything we’re doing. We just need to get out there and perform to our ability.” The 2013 season kicks off Aug. 31

with a home game against Murray State. Also visiting Faurot Field this year are Toledo and Arkansas State for nonconference games, along with SEC foes Florida, South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas A&M. The Tigers play at Indiana in nonconference action and travel to SEC opponents Vanderbilt, Georgia, Kentucky and Mississippi.

victories and a Big 12 Tournament title in his surprising first season. Earnest Ross and Keion Bell each led his previous team in scoring after transferring from Auburn and Pepperdine, respectively. Jabari Brown had been a five-star recruit when he signed at Oregon. The biggest addition of all, the 6-foot-9, 265-pound center Oriakhi, started for a national championship-winning team at Connecticut and looked like he could be the rimprotecting big man Missouri hadn’t had in years. “I feel like the sky’s the limit for this team,” Bowers said days before Missouri opened practice in October. “I’ve never really came out and said we have a chance to win a national championship, but with this team, I really do” think so. But Missouri was never the team Bowers envisioned. One reason was that Dixon never played a game and left school in late November after it became public he had twice been accused of

sexual assault. Bowers’ own sprained medial collateral ligament also was a setback, costing the team its leading scorer for five games and limiting his production for several more after his return. The Tigers managed to open the season 12-2, but the SEC slate exposed their lack of resiliency when it came to locking down opponents on the defensive end or winning away from home. The Tigers (23-11) struggled to get stops consistently against the better teams on their schedule, finished 11-7 in a down league and went 3-9 away from Columbia after Christmas with Pressey’s late-game mistakes with turnovers and shot selec-

Haith has another construction job ahead of him this offseason after losing Bowers, Oriakhi, Bell and Pressey, who decided to forgo his senior season to enter the NBA draft. MU will add the services of Tulsa transfer Jordan Clarkson and is bringing in a five-man recruiting class headlined by four-star recruits Johnathan Williams III and Wesley Clark and junior college center Keanau Post. The coaching staff will try to mold those newcomers and returners such as Brown, Ross and Tony Criswell into a tougher team next fall.
