Aquadome venue condemned

Aquadome venue condemned

The Aquadome will spend the fall semester organizing house shows in local residences and events at local businesses after its former venue at 121 N. Main St. was condemned.

The Aquadome first notified the community of the venue change June 22. Aquadome Webmaster senior Jake Hurst says members of the Aquadome’s executive board first noticed insulation was coming down after a period of heavy rain. The problem was worsened by more rain throughout the following days, which Hurst says eventually led to the venue being condemned.

“We looked for a place to start up this fall but we couldn’t find anywhere that worked,” Hurst says. “So this semester we’re trying to hash out work with other businesses to see if we can have shows there. Basically, anywhere that we can [we’ll try to] have a house show, anywhere that will take us.”

Hurst says the search for a new venue will allow Aquadome volunteers to work in ways they have not thought of before. Hurst says rather than the Aquadome being a physical place, it has become an idea to build community and bring art to Kirksville.

The media loves to talk about the problems millennials have while pretending everyone born since the 1980s is exactly the same. Meanwhile, real problems this generation faces get pushed to the side. It’s […]

Football is back in town

Football is back in town

For the Truman State football team, summer is not a time for rest and relaxation on the beach. Summer is when the team begins to run, lift and get ready for football to give them the best chance they have to win. For the team, August means more than the start of a new semester. It means the start of a new season and an opportunity to win a Great Lakes Valley Conference title.

During the past two years the Bulldogs have shown that Truman’s reputation does not hinge only on the success in the classroom. The football team proved throughout their season that they were unlike any Truman football team in recent years. Last year, the team had statistically the best defense since 1994, as well as a strong kicker with senior Jacob Lamp who helped the team become 3rd in the country for kickoff returns and 2nd in overall punt average.
