Stump Speaking Slated: Sunday August 5; Bowling Green, Missouri

Current candidates vying for local and state offices will visit with, and formally address constituents as the Champ Clark House (Honeyshuck) will host Stump Speaking Sunday. The biennial event will be held Sunday, August 5th, 2012 at 1:30 in the afternoon in the Bowling Green High School Commons.

All relevant state and local candidates have been invited to take part. State candidates are allowed up to three minutes each to address constituents; with local candidates allowed two minutes.

Stumping has a place in the nation’s history as candidates of the past, like Bowling Green Missouri’s own Champ Clark, stood atop a stump to make their respective appeals to voters. Like then, the 2012 edition will come complete with a stump, allowing today’s candidates a rustic, portable stage.

Ice cream and cake will be served, starting at 1:30 p.m., with stumping to commence at 2. Frank Berlin will be event emcee and the school is air conditioned. The event is free and open to the public, with plenty of parking available.

For more information, contact Millie Jackson at 573.324.5224. For more information on The Champ Clark House, visit www.champclark.org and watch for more news as the house marks the 100-year anniversary of Champ’s 1912 presidential campaign.

MO Pyro, WOW!

Thanks to some great friends, I was lucky enough to get over to the Missouri Pyrotechnics Association fireworks shoot last night near Bowling Green, Missouri. The show was Amazing! My favorites included the hand made shells, the single fuse show, and the computer controlled finale. It was all so cool. I hope I can make it the next time these pyrotechnic wizards are ready to give us a show. Thanks MO Pyro! Enjoy the pictures! I have high resolution images, leave a comment if you’d like the full resolution.
