COLUMBIA — Images of the Fourth of July celebration, Missouri's official move to SEC and the electrocutions at the Lake of the Ozarks were among the best Missourian staff photos last week.

In this photo by Robert Swain, Alex Peterson-Ramey, 15, a youth and action volunteer, gets a temporary tattoo at Flat Branch Park to celebrate the Fourth of July.

Tatiana Fernandez's photo shows the Southeastern Conference flag flying outside Mizzou Arena above Walsworth Plaza. The ceremonial flag raising took place on Monday to mark Missouri's official move to the conference.
