Ted Glasgow’s smile is infectious, but his physique may be a little intimidating. He’s a body builder, originally from East St. Louis, who has won the Mr. Missouri title four times.

He got his start in 1976 at a competition in Springfield.

“It was in an air-conditioned hotel, and they didn’t have a stage or anything like that,” Glasgow said. “There were no weight classes, no music, and we did our posing routine.”

At 5 feet 8 inches, 189 pounds and 53 years old, Glasgow is still competing.

Council to hear request to rezone two East Campus properties

EAST CAMPUS

By KATHRYN LANDIS

The owners of two neighboring properties in East Campus are asking that they be rezoned to allow an additional tenant.

Right now, the properties at 1405 and 1407 Bouchelle Ave. are zoned as R-1, single-family, which allows only three people not related by blood or marriage to live under one roof. MRZ Properties, which owns 1405 Bouchelle, and Hartman-Baker, which owns 1407, want an R-2 designation, which would allow four unrelated people to live together.

The request is on the Columbia City Council’s agenda Monday evening for first reading, so no discussion or action will occur. The matter comes before the council after the Planning and Zoning Commission split 4-4 over whether to recommend the request be approved.

After 2 1/2 years of planning, and building bonds of sisterhood from the ground up, the Eta Chi chapter of Sigma Sigma Sigma is finally starting work on its new house.

The groundbreaking will be at 3 p.m. April 29 at 507 Rollins St. Afterward, a reception will be held at the group’s current, temporary, house at 909 Richmond Ave. The groundbreaking also coincides with Tri Sigma’s Moms Weekend.

“It’s been interesting to make sure that everything goes off without any kind of problems,” Tri Sigma President Samantha Green said. “We’re essentially planning two events at the same time so of course it’s a little more stressful for those committees and for me.” Continue reading

One Missouri teacher is being featured in a national ad campaign for the Allergan LapBand, according to a release from Boone Hospital Center.

The ad is in the May issues of “Rachael Ray,” “Good Housekeeping,” “Better Homes and Gardens” and “Real Simple” magazines. It will also be featured in Oprah’s magazine, “O,” in June.

The photo, taken in California, shows Wood hula-hooping on a lawn.
