Concert Coming to Washington

The Washington’s Lions Club and the Knights of Columbus are teaming up to put on a concert at the new Stage at the fairgrounds. No acts for the “Concert By The Lake” have been announced yet, but Dave Politte with the Lions Club says you won’t want to miss it.

"There’s two days of the concert and there’ll be a nationally known band each day, and there’s also going to be a couple of bands from the St. Louis area that are going to come out that I think have a really big following in the area and that most people would recognize. So it’s going to be a good show.”

The “Concert By The Lake” will be held on May 10th and 11th.

OFF THE CUFF with Diane Jones

August 9, 2014, will forever be marked in the history books as the date Michael Brown was shot by a Ferguson police officer.

It is the aftermath of that event, however, which history will forever remember. The protesters, the looters, the agitators, the Hands Up Don't Shoot movement, the dramatic announcement of the grand jury, the buildings up in flames. In the process, the community and image of Ferguson was destroyed.
