Bonnie Riley’s son Bart was piloting an ultralight plane when he was 22. The ultralight crashed, and Bart lost his legs and also his eyesight as a result of brain injuries. Bart is now 35. Riley went to the stem-cell educational forum Saturday in Boonville to learn more about stem cells, hoping that one day in the future Bart would be able to see again with the help of stem-cell therapy.
Craig Cyr, executive chef of The Wine Cellar and Bistro, demonstrated how to cook four main dishes at the third annual Missouri Chestnut Roast on Saturday. The chef demonstration was a new addition to the chestnut roast, hosted at the MU Horticulture and Agroforestry Research Center in New Franklin. With the help of his two sous-chefs, Cyr made a mixed green salad, chestnut and goat cheese ravioli, roasted leg of lamb and chestnut pancakes with elderberry syrup in front of a crowd of nearly 100 people.
Too many Americans have life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness without health, said former Surgeon General David Satcher to a crowd of about 250 people at the MU School of Medicine on Friday.
Clutching a dollar in one hand and a baseball toy in the other, 10-year-old Justice Boyes approached the checkout counter at Deals dollar store. In a store plastered with posters that read, “Nothing more than $1,” the register flashed the total price, “$1.08.” Even in a dollar store, few things cost exactly $1. That’s because of a little thing called sales tax.
LAWRENCE, Kan. — Three measly points. No one could have expected this kind of output from a Missouri offense that, a week earlier, was pumping out points against the nation’s No. 1 rush defense.
LAWRENCE, Kan. — This was too hard to put into words, so most of the Missouri football players didn’t try. It was a sad sight to see them, filing out of the visiting locker room of Kansas’ Memorial Stadium, hushed and red-eyed. For three years they had tried to shake this beast of a Kansas team. For three years they had done their best to regain the edge in the annual Border Showdown. For three years they had tried and for three years they had failed, this time in an emotional 13-3 loss.
LAWRENCE, Kan. - There are certain images no Missouri fan wants to see. Many of them appeared in Lawrence on Saturday afternoon: Kansas’ Memorial Stadium, minus its goalposts.
The Missouri volleyball team set multiple season highs against Colorado, unfortunately they were all in error categories. The Tigers lost to Colorado 30-20, 28-30, 30-23, 27-30, 12-15 Saturday night at Hearnes Center.
Lisa Morris is accustomed to working through pain. Morris, a Missouri volleyball player from 1998 to 2002, had multiple serious injuries during her time at MU. Morris sat out her freshman year while recovering from a tumor that had been removed from her left tibia before coming to MU. During her junior year, Morris was diagnosed with thoracic outlet syndrome, which caused her to have a rib removed.
The Missouri women’s swimming and diving team’s first away meet of the season wasn’t typical. The Tigers lost at Kansas to end a five-year winning streak against the Jayhawks. “Kansas is one of those teams you really want to beat,” MU coach Brian Hoffer said. “We just couldn’t do it this year.”
His coach called him a “one of a kind kid.” His teammates described him as an optimist, and a big brother-type figure. But Zach Chapman shrugged, grinned, and tried to turn the attention away from himself and onto the team.
Rock Bridge’s record-setting season began almost three months ago with a knock on Lauren Borduin’s door. It was a Saturday morning in early August, and members of the Bruins’ cross country team were out for their daily training run. They decided to take a short detour, hoping that they could finish their run with one more person than they started with.
Hickman defenders Omeed Latifi and Gabe Widmer couldn’t be more different. Latifi is a hard-hitting, fast-talking left back. He’s gregarious, loud and confident. He is cut, quick, with dark features and lots of stubble. He plays with reckless abandon, sometimes too reckless, as even he admits. Chest-bumping teammates after goals, tackling threatening-opponents hard and starting the counter-attack quickly is all in a day’s work.
Among the items coaches found on the Rock Bridge soccer bus after a recent game were the standard empty wrappers, bottles, a missing soccer cleat and “Young Cowboy” magazine. “Young Cowboy” magazine?
One Rock Bridge Bruin wasn’t on the field Friday night to watch his team shock No. 2 Hickman. He wasn’t able to rejoice to the chants of “district champs” or run into the arms of his teammates and fans as many of the Bruins did. Instead, this Bruin was listening to the game on the radio from his hospital bed. He could only hear and imagine in his mind what was happening.
Pale purple balloons are everywhere. They line railings, adorn tables and are even tied to trash cans.
The defending state champions won’t be returning to the postseason. Hickman, the No. 2 team in Class 6, was dominated for three quarters by Rock Bridge, which upset its cross-town rival 21-18 in the Providence Bowl at Faurot Field. Only a late rally in which the Kewpies scored 15 fourth-quarter points made the game close.
The folks who work in the factories and businesses that line Lemone Industrial Boulevard are all too familiar with the daily frustration of idling bumper-to-bumper as they try to get home. The boulevard, a hilly lane that runs east of U.S. Highway 63, is one of several streets in the city with the kind of daily gridlock that residents in a recent survey identified as their biggest complaint about Columbia.
