Missouri officials looking for state Christmas tree

Tuesday, 24 September 2013 07:35 Published in Local News

It may be September, but state officials have already started their  Christmas shopping in Jefferson City -- for a holiday tree, that is.  Missouri officials are looking for the next Christmas tree to decorate the lawn of the Governor's Mansion in state capitol. The deadline to submit entries to the state Department of Conservation is September 30. Trees must be at least 40 feet tall, fully branched and donated. The owner of the winning tree gets a personalized thank you from Governor Jay Nixon and an invitation to the tree lighting.  Submissions must include photos taken from several angles and distances, contact information and the location of tree through an online mapping service. Entries can be sent to the Department of Conservation in Jefferson City.

   The federal agency has ordered the university as well as the University of Nebraska-Lincoln to stop flying the drones outdoors until they obtain government authorization.

   Scott Pham of Missouri's university-owned station KBIA-FM said the school will apply for a federal permit known as a certificate of authorization. His counterpart in Nebraska has said the school also plans to seek the federal permit.

 

   Journalism researchers and their students were using the airborne robots to shoot aerial photos and video from difficult-to-reach news scenes.
