Caleb Jones, left, unopposed as a candidate for representative from the 50th District, talks with fellow California, Mo., residents Mike Katschman and Darrel King on Oct. 3 at Burgher Haus Restaurant in California. Burgher Haus is located near downtown California on West Buchanan Street and is a place where residents drink coffee, catch up on area news and eat breakfast. Jones ate a breakfast sandwich while others drank only coffee. People who gather at Burgher Haus in the morning are businessmen and professionals in town, including car dealership owners, county officials and retired MU professors. The morning's discussion consisted of local news, Missouri football's performance in the SEC, and the Ozark Ham and Turkey Festival held in California in September.
