Yes another need may arise but the sunset must be in it. We have to pay for some things, like a county jail, when they're needed and a new jail is needed. Good grief don't you think you should pay for something, there's no money fairy out there to pay for things a community needs from time to time?

If that's the way you interpret the statement then, frankly, you're an idiot. Look at all the stories about arrests for meth busts, over and over again, the same names. They don't give them more jail time partially because they don't have anywhere to put them. The crimes don't rise to the level of state prison, and we have no room at the county level. You think it's…

Build it on the current parking lot for the court house. No Transportation needed. ... Property already owned... build an underground parking lot to allow for safer transport of prisoners rather than the back door the sheriff referenced and the elevator they would have to use to get people up to the court room, they could design a better and larger elevator with a cage to keep staff save from drunk…

The way I interpret "our jail no longer meets modern day needs" is "we need a new jail so we can further grow the incarcerated population, our police force, and government power while shrinking everyone's liberty and taxpayer pocket books." We may need a new jail just due to the age and safety but it shouldn't be any larger than the current one since our county population hasn't grown,…

Culver-Stockton Athletics unveils new logo

Culver-Stockton Athletics unveils new logo

2 years, 6 months ago by Bob Gough

  CANTON, Mo. --- Culver-Stockton College Athletics Director Greg McVey, along with C-SC President Richard Valentine and Old Hat Creative representative Kristopher Bazen, introduced a program-wide athletics brand and identity program during a press conference on the C-SC campus this morning.

 The College worked with Old Hat Creative of Norman, Okla., since March to help create the right logo and identity that works for Culver-Stockton College. The entire athletics department will benefit from this partnership.

 “Working with Old Hat Creative was a tremendous experience,” said McVey. “They understood what we were trying to accomplish from the very beginning and were extremely professional and accommodating during the process.  Anyone considering a branding change should consider using their services.”

 Over the course of the identity development process, a strong focus was placed on remembering the past while representing the future direction of the college. The new identity program and logo reflects on the core values of the overall branding of the college, which was launched in 2011.

 “Anytime an organization goes through a branding or logo change it symbolizes the future and what that organization wants to move towards,” says McVey.  “Our coaches and student-athletes want to win HAAC Championships, qualify for NAIA Playoffs and ultimately win National Championships, and our new branding initiative falls in line with that commitment to excellence.

 “Culver-Stockton College Athletics is poised to make a huge turnaround on the court, field, track and course this year and nothing illustrates that more than a new athletic logo that honors the past but breaks new ground and says, ‘Here we are, new and improved.’”

 During the unveiling, the new football helmet the Wildcats will sport during the 2012 season made its debut with the new primary logo on one side and uniform numbers in the C-SC’s exclusive font on the other side. These helmets highlight the consistent color across all sports and will feature logos, lettering and numerals that are exclusive to the college. 

 “Obviously, the new logo will never make a basket, score a goal or hit a home run for the Wildcats, but an athletic logo should create a sense of pride for our current student-athletes, faculty, staff, alums and the community.  Additionally, the new branding should show prospective student-athletes that athletics at Culver-Stockton College are taken seriously and that it is a place that they would like to continue their athletic career.”

 Representatives from Culver-Stockton College and Old Hat Creative were present for Tuesday’s event to provide additional comments on the scope and benefits of the brand and identity program. Merchandise bearing the elements of the new marks is available for purchase at www.cscwildcats.com and will be available in the campus One Stop Shop before the start of the upcoming school year.

 

 NEW CULVER-STOCKTON BRAND IDENTITY STANDARDS

  • A primary mark to be used consistently across all athletic programs
  • A secondary mark
  • A custom font, numeral set and word marks
  • A bold tertiary mark to be used on performance and other products

 Primary Identity: A refined Wildcat mark will serve as the primary representation of the college and serve as the main indentifying device for Culver-Stockton Athletics.

 Secondary Identity: A revolution of the current C-S mark and supports the goal of respecting the past while representing the future.

Custom Font, Numeral set and Word Marks: The custom font, numerical set and word marks were designed to reflect the bold and athletic attitude at Culver-Stockton College and differentiate the institution from other schools. Consistent and careful usage of the typography will support the primary logo and ensure clarity and distinction in all athletics communication.

 Tertiary Identity – Wildcat Claw: The Wildcat paw or claw has long been a symbol of Culver-Stockton Athletics. The new claw mark brings the characteristics of physical strength, fortitude and energy to life visually.
