THE WEEK IN PHOTOS: Waynesville comes together to clean up after a damaging flood

Sunday, August 11, 2013 | 5:01 p.m. CDT

COLUMBIA — This week, Missourian photographers captured photos of MU's Football Fan Day on Faurot Field and of the National Night Out in a West Ash neighborhood.

 

Unho Yi took this photo of Michael Darling, 14, of Lebanon, Mo., showing an American flag to his family that he found in debris Saturday in Wagner's Trailer Park in Waynesville where residents are cleaning up their town together after a flood that resulted in heavy damage and even death.

Kelly Coleman took this photo of Andrew Byrne making his second shot on a par 3 hole in disc golf Wednesday at Albert-Oakland Park.

Megan Donohue took this picture of fans lined up to get autographs from players and coaches at the 11th annual Football Fan Day at Faurot Field last week. MU cheerleaders handed out maps to fans waiting in line that showed where the players would be on the field.

 

Unho Yi took this picture of Abraham Kuol, 5, wearing a Columbia Police badge sticker Tuesday for the National Night Out event. Police officers came to discuss community safety in the West Ash neighborhood. The National Association of Town Watch started the event in 1984 to raise awareness of such police programs as drug prevention and neighborhood watch.

Unho Yi took this picture of Gene Newkirk, presiding commissioner of Pulaski County, holding a news conference Saturday at a fire station in Waynesville. Newkirk announced the recovery of 23-year-old Jessica Lee's body Friday night after the flood in Waynesville.

Megan Donohue took this picture of MU safety Daniel Easterly going for a catch during practice Friday. Easterly is from Detroit's west side and has plans to help his home town build itself back up.

Shannon Elliot took this photo of the Masonic emblem of a square and compass with the letter "G" in the center as it faces the street in Harrisburg, 135 years after it was placed there. In 1878, the Masons partnered with the school district to build the Harrisburg schoolhouse with a Masonic lodge on the second floor. The school is so rickety that it creaks with every step inside and every tug of a door.
