'Constantly Hustling' Local Illustrator Wins Hearts, and Followers
Sometimes an artist just knows a person’s going to love their work. Jefferson City native Adrienne Luther knows when people ask her to doodle their cat, she’ll win their hearts. But Luther does more than just doodle cats. She makes portraits, lettering and logos. She doesn’t want you to think she’s a starving artist.

While Luther has a sunroom, she’s often in coffee shops making her art. “The internet has really allowed me to stay afloat,” Luther said. “So I can just put something up on Instagram and sell it there. So I'm constantly hustling, but it's really fulfilling.” Luther used to follow friends on her Instagram but felt it was becoming draining. She didn’t want to feel

Co-pastor of The Crossing Church Keith Simon gave a sermon on October 13, 2019 that discussed gender roles in the bible.

Off the Clock - Celebrating Homer, and a Historic Building 'Reclaimed' In Centralia
On campuses across mid-Missouri students and faculty are wrapping up the semester, and on this edition of Off the Clock we visit a unique end-of-term tradition hosted by MU's Ancient Mediterranean Studies department: The Homer-athon. It's a celebration of "The Iliad," in multiple languages, and KBIA's Olivia Love captured the languages and the sounds of the recent 25th annual Homer-athon, on May 10th. And in Centralia, Missouri, the St. John African Methodeist Episcopal Church has been a part of the Centralia community since the late 1800s. It was a thriving African-American church until membership declined, services stopped, and the building stood empty. Callie and Brad Page bought the site to repurpose as a storefront for their business, Reclaimed, which makes furniture out of barnwood. After a year of renovations, the Pages hope the business will be a place for the Centralia community to come together, while honoring and preserving the building's historic legacy in the community.
