It’s Sunshine Week!

Happy Sunshine Week everyone!

The American Society of News Editors have designated March 14-21 “Sunshine Week.” This week is all about highlighting the importance of open governmental records and the freedom of information.

This week at the Columbia Missourian we’ll be making a special effort to let you know when we’re using public records in our stories. All stories that use public records will by accompanied by a Sunshine Week graphic. We also encourage you to check out Show Me The Records, which will feature information about a different governmental record each day this week.

But the fun doesn’t stop this week! Since there are more than just a week’s worth of records, we’ll be continuing this feature once every week for awhile.
