Kurt Schaefer and his wife, Stacia Schaefer, exchange car keys on the evening of Oct. 9 outside the Columbia Academy of Music. Even with his election campaign in full swing, Schaefer finds the time to take his sons to Boy Scouts; both Max, 14, and Wolfgang, 11, are in Troop 707, which meets at Calvary Episcopal Church in downtown Columbia. Schaefer and his wife met as undergraduates at MU and held their wedding reception at The Blue Note, where Schaefer worked as a bartender while in college.
