People visit Sparky's Ice Cream downtown

People visit Sparky's Ice Cream downtown in large numbers on Saturday in downtown Columbia. Among those enjoying the relief of a sweet icy snack were the St. Joe Hoopsters, a 6th grade boys basketball team participating in the Show-Me State Games this month. The excessive heat warning issued for Boone County was extended through early Sunday evening. Saturday could be the hottest day of the year so far; temperatures reached 103 degrees.
