COLUMBIA - Last night's Boone County candidates forum closed with an easy "softball" question from an audience member: If elected, would candidate Barbara Bishop be Boone County's first female assessor? Bishop responded first: "I would love to set history. I'm probably the first female candidate. So we're probably making history here tonight."
