Images of painted faces at the Heritage Festival, handstands in Cosmopolitan Park and the damage from the fire in MU's Ellis Library were among the Missourian's best photos from last week.

Daniel Bailey, "O," left, Adam Zeller, "T," Steven Fitzgerald, the paw, and Jared Jeffries, "F," cheer on the opening kickoff of the Missouri football game against Western Illinois at Faurot Field on Saturday.
Braeden Anderson, 8, poses for a portrait after getting his face painted during Heritage Festival on Saturday at Nifong Park. Anderson came to the festival with his father, Brian, his sister, Avary, and their friends.
Bri Woodburn, 13, Becca Wilson, 15, Angela Kern, 16, and Destiny Patrick, 14, practice their handstands at the Cosmopolitan Park skate park in Columbia on Saturday. The girls are members of Show-Me Gymnastics and had come to the park to help break a world record for most people doing handstands at a single time.
Carpet in the east computer workstation on the first floor of MU's Ellis Library was removed Monday because of water damage from an early morning fire Sept. 10. The library reopened Tuesday.
Lexi Brown, 5, a resident of the Regency Trailer Park, walks inside the home where she lives with her three siblings, mother and grandmother on Wednesday. Lexi's mother, Melissa Dinwiddie, wants to know when she and her children will be forced to leave their home. "They need to tell us something," she said. The owner of the park is seeking city approval to build apartments on the property.
