COLUMBIA — This week, Missourian photographers documented a traveling circus' visit to Columbia, the Southern Boone High School marching band remembering a friend who died, and the Missouri General Assembly failing to override vetoes of three contentious bills. 

In this photo by Kevin Cook, Jason Walker of Sarasota, Fla., bathes two deserg camels before the Whirling Brothers Circus show Monday at the Central Missouri Events Center. The traveling circus made a one-day visit to Columbia on Monday.

Fareeha Amir captured this image of the Southern Boone High School marching band gathering before its performance at Friday's game, its first after band member Jacob Meadows took his own life earlier in the week. 

In this photo by Julia Sumpter, the General Assembly gathers in the Missouri State Capitol on Wednesday before putting three contentious bills to rest by not overriding Gov. Jay Nixon's veteos on the bills, which involved tax cuts, gun rights and sex offenders.

Kevin Cook took this photo of sculptor Don Asbee creating an East Campus sign with forged steel. East Campus residents hope that the signs created by Asbee, which will stand 8.5 feet tall, will help enhance the area and demarcate the neighborhood.
