March 14 to 21 has been declared by the American Society of News
Editors as "Sunshine Week," a time to shine the spotlight on the rights
of the people to open government and freedom of information.
Every day this week, and once a week after, the Missourian will highlight another government record. You can learn a lot about your community, state and country. Open records help people keep government in check and help them better understand how government affects their lives.
You can find all the Show Me the Records at columbiamissourian.com/records.
The records: A list of all the records held by Missouri men's basketball players and teams in all statistical categories since the beginning of the program.
