Hoppers Pub was established in September 2010,
by Ursula and Jake Lebioda, located in the heart of downtown
Ursula and Jake have been entrepreneurs
in the area since 2005; they share the love for Route 66
and ventured with an idea of a restaurant pub that would
feature 66 Beers on tap on their little piece of Route 66.
The beer selection is vast focusing on local, the domestic
favs along with great craft beers for all seasons along
with our house brew Frog Drool. Club 66 has also been a
great success as customers drink 66 beers and get their
name on the wall (not all in one visit :) this helps customers
find that beer they didn't expect to like and try a variety.
Hoppers is known for great ½ pound burgers, the Jam
Burger, BBQ Guiness and Pepperbacon are the local favorites.
The menu offers a variety of appetizers, sandwiches, salads,
fish & chips, not to forget our famous frog legs and
a kids menu for our little Hoppers.
The question always arises, why the name "Hoppers",
is that the owners last name? The concept came from the
Hops in beer also frogs hop hence our mascot, and of course
we are in Waynesville which is home of Frog Rock and Croacker
it all made sense.
afternoon everyone. With the arrival of October, it is now
fall and our area is in the mist of fall sports and festivals.
A reminder to all about our Frogtober Fest
on Saturday, October 4th, at the Waynesville City Park.
I believe the weather is going to cooperate and be nice
for our gathering that day. Come out and support the activities.
Our students are in the mist of another busy school year.
Good luck to all with their academic and sports activities.
For all of us, please be careful as you enter our school
zones. Watch your speed and look out for our children. Also,
pay careful attention as you approach or follow a school
bus. Let's keep our children safe.
Fireball Run has started! Several Chamber
and Tourism folks met at the Tourism Office on September
25, to see Cecilia and Steve as they drove off for Frisco,
TX. This is where the Run will officially begin. The Run
will arrive in Waynesville on 2 Oct. We all need to be out
at the "finish line" as all 40 teams come to town.
We want to cheer for all of them, especially Cecilia and
Steve. Let's show them some Pulaski County Pride! The focus
of the Run is about finding missing children. A great focus
and we need to be there to show our support. Plus, the forty
teams will be staying and shopping in our communities! An
economic win-win for us all. I encourage you to follow team
10 - Pulaski Pride on Face Book and Twitter.
With Halloween at the end of the month, another
reminder to be careful as we drive through our neighborhoods
on Trick or Treat night. Hope all have fun with the season.
And let us not forget our Shop Local Campaign.
As Chamber members, we need to support each other. Before
leaving town, to either shop or dine out, think first of
your local Chamber member. You will not only save on gas
but will demonstrate your support for our local area.
As always please feel free to contact me if
the Chamber can be of any assistance to you.
That is about it for now. Until next time,
let's all Move Forward, United.
marked a milestone for me at the Chamber. I celebrated 10
years as the Executive Director. It has been an amazing
journey and I couldn't have asked for better people to work
with while we were growing the Chamber. Thanks to the staff
for the video tribute as well as Phil and the other past
Chamber Board Presidents for your recognition during the
monthly luncheon. It has been honor to serve the members
and community and I look forward to many years to come.
October is already a busy month as we continue
to present the Choices program to all the 8th graders in
Pulaski County. The events kick off on October 2nd with
Fireball Run in Downtown Waynesville and followed up by
on October 4th with the Frog Race during Frogtober Fest
at the Waynesville City Park. Then the next Friday night
we will hold Community Pride Night at the Waynesville High
School Homecoming football game on the 10th. We will celebrate
a black and orange pride day with the Homecoming Parade
in the afternoon and then everyone will join us for a tailgate
party like never before!
The Chamber is starting to work on our 2015
Calendar of Events. Don't forget to send in your community
calendar events as soon as you can. It helps prevent multiple
events on the same day.

The 2014-2015 Leadership Pulaski County
class is underway. This course is a great opportunity
to learn more about what Pulaski County has to offer.
It will be a great way to network and build relationships
in the community. As a graduate of last year's class I
wish the new students good luck and may your experience
be as informative and insightful as mine was in shaping
the future leaders of Pulaski County.
The Chamber is hosting its annual Community
Pride Night in conjunction with Waynesville homecoming
on October 10th. The ambassadors and volunteers will be
giving out free hot dogs and soda before kickoff of the
game as thank you to the community for all its support.
The event begins at 5 p.m. in the parking lot of the 9th
grade center and it's a great way to show community spirit
and rally support for the Waynesville Tigers as they look
to continue their winning ways in the Ozark Conference.
Lastly, I would like to touch on the tremendous
growth of business and activities in the area. The new
Patriot 12 Theater has opening and it is a wonderful facility
and the jewel of the new construction being completed
in that area. Also underway are construction projects
for the new hospital, industrial park, improvements to
the Waynesville City Park, and new businesses opening
in the recently constructed strip malls in Saint Robert.
All of this growth would not be possible or sustainable
without support from the people of Pulaski County and
Fort Leonard Wood. I leave this note with a message to
everyone to please support the fort and get your voice
heard on the force reduction matter because without continued
growth at Fort Leonard Wood there will be no continued
growth of Pulaski County.
I am writing this Pulaski Pride Team #10 is gearing up for
their Fireball Adventure! Reprehensive Steven Lynch and Waynesville-St
Robert Chamber Director Cecilia Murray are gathering clues
and performing missions as they work their way from Frisco,
TX to Independence Missouri; networking with other teams,
partnering with Children Rescue Network to search for Kylie
Lawrence, all the while promoting Pulaski County USA. Join
in on the fun! Connect on Facebook: Fireball Run Team 10-
Pulaski Pride and on Twitter as they shout-out for help on
clues, log onto FireballRun.com to watch the event unfold
through live streaming video. Watch for the Pulaski County
Tourism Van aka "Van on a Mission" proudly supported
by Security Bank of Pulaski County, CenturyLink and USA Tours.
The fun really begins in PulaskiCountyUSA on October 2nd,
when the teams arrive to perform missions and attend events
throughout the county. Teams will be spotted in Crocker, Dixon,
Fort Leonard Wood, Richland, Saint Robert and Waynesville.
Mission locations are not being mentioned as the teams must
discover clues to find the locations. Once the missions are
complete Teams will start arriving at the days Finish Line
in downtown Waynesville. The public is invited to wave and
cheer (bring your American flags to wave!), the teams to the
finish line and there will be opportunities to take pictures,
collect Team cards and get autographs! October 3rd the public
is again invited to the Start Line in Waynesville where the
Teams will gather, the green flat will drop, and off they
will go to their next destination in Sedalia!
Take a few moments to check out the Top 10 Things YOU need
to know about Fireball Run at the Pulaski County USA WordPress
As we move into fall, spread the word about the fantastic
fall activities that Pulaski County offers. Did you know Pulaski
offers 5 area farms in which you and your family can hug a
pig, feed an alpaca, enjoy a hayride, learn about antique
tractors, play in a corn box, test your throw at the cow pie
toss, get lost in Pulaski County's largest precision cut corn
maze (9 acres of twists and turns featuring the Fireball Run
logo!), catapult a pumpkin, watch your toddler laugh and squeal
on a zipline and find that perfect pumpkin for Halloween.
Those wanting to get their "spook" on have a choice
of haunts around the county; experience a Haunted River Float,
Haunted Hill, Haunted Village, Spooktacular Walking Trail
and paranormal investigations at the Talbot House! Be in the

one facet of diversifying Pulaski County economic opportunities
I attended a two day workshop on administering Community
Development Block Grants September 9 & 10. I last attended
a CDBG workshop 15 years ago when a Speculative Building was
built. There have been a few changes in the last 15 years!
I wrote an application in April 2013 to construct a speculative
building in the Waynesville Industrial Park and we are now
in the final document signing stage. The local portion is
complete and the documents have been sent to the Missouri
Department of Economic Development for their signatures. This
speculative building project is a loan using Community Development
Block Grant funds. The loan is a five year term at 1% interest
and does not begin until the first draw of funds is issued.
The next step in the process will be a meeting with the City
of Waynesville, Department of Economic Development ,and Pulaski
County Growth Alliance to outline the duties and responsibilities
of the project.
Once the rules and regulations meeting is held, an RFP to
hire an Engineer/Architect will be done. The design phase
of the project will include a shell building. This shell building
will be designed as 20,000 sq.ft. expandable to 40,000 sq.ft.
The building will have two dock doors, 22 foot high ceiling,
entry door, minimum lighting, insulated in ceiling and walls,
and paved parking lot. There will not be a finished floor
until a tenant is identified. The company that locates to
this facility must create at least 34 new jobs. The addition
of a Spec Building to our economic development tool box will
continue our efforts to diversify the local economy.

the Banks of the Roubidoux!
October is shaping up to be a very busy month for the City
of Waynesville. The City is preparing for Fireball Run:
Season 8 to arrive on the Square on October 2, between 3:30-6:30
pm and leave on October 3, 8:30-9:30 am. Fireball Run is
an internet, regional race, which focuses on returning missing
children. Astronauts, rodeo stars and the professional wrestler,
Raven will be driving. But more importantly, Pulaski County
has a team of its own. Chamber Director Cecilia Murray and
State Representative Steve Lynch will be driving the Tourism
van. The Transformers' Scary Car and the "Back to the
Future" Delorean will be in the race. They are using
Pulaski County for their activities, and the finish and
the start line will be in downtown Waynesville. The downtown
area will be closed and traffic re-routed on those dates
and times. Please be aware and make plans. Please share
this information with your neighbors.
October 4th is Frogtober Fest in the Roubidoux Park, complete
with a Frog Hill Marathon and the Frog Races in the Roubidoux.
Remember October 8 is clean up day in Waynesville. October
10 is WHS Homecoming and the Homecoming Parade will be at
2:30 that afternoon, starting in the Roubidoux Park. That
night Pride Night will take place before the game at the
football field. The City is proud to participate in the
Homecoming festivities. October 18 is Oktoberfest on the
Square, sponsored by the WDBA. The PFAA, Theatre on the
Square, is presenting "Beauty and the Beast".
The City appreciates all the volunteers who work hard to
present these activities to the community. Our thanks and
compliments to you all.
The "Unlimited Play" All-Accessible Playground
is taking shape with the help and input of our community
committee and we expect to unveil a design for the "Little
Heroes" playground at Frogtober Fest on October 4th.
After the design is adopted we will begin a year of fund
raising and with the $200,000 of Park capital improvement
monies committed by the City over the next two years, we
will be replacing our Roubidoux playground with one that
will be three times the size of the current footprint. It
will be accessible to all. It will have features that will
allow special needs children, wheelchair- bound grandparents
and Wounded Warrior parents access to play activity with
their children and grandchildren. The City is very excited
about this project!
The City is focusing on several goals that we set when I
took office as mayor in April 2012. Our number one goal
has been improving communication and we have succeeded with
many initiatives. From a monthly newsletter to a monthly
media release; from a citizen email list to a re-designed
City website and City Facebook page, we have worked hard
to connect with our citizens. Work has begun in earnest
on the Roubidoux Park Stage, funded in part by the Dial
family. The stage will offer a central location for festivals
and events within the Park area. Our staff has also installed
the second, and last, of our "Welcome to Waynesville"
signs. The first is located on Highway 17 North and the
new one sits on the old outer road, as your exit 156 onto
Ichord Ave. We are proud to highlight our community!
The City Council this month raised the monthly stipend for
mayor to $300 from $100. In a comparison with other Missouri
Cities of 4000-5000 population, we had the lowest compensation.
Even though we hire an administrator to do the day to day
business, being mayor of a city can take a lot of time and
effort. When I travel outside the community, I turn in my
mileage and receive gas only. I do not claim the $.55 per
mile. When I take people to dinner for the City, I have
a credit card I use for that purpose. It is very closely
monitored. When I attend luncheons and dinners, the citizens
pay for my food. Those are the perks of being mayor. This
raise in stipend will not affect my term as mayor, but will
become effective in April of 2016. The Council and I do
not want to be at the bottom of any list and we will no
longer be there.
The Council also addressed another goal that we identified
in 2012, eliminating 14 spots in our residential areas that
had a 15 mph speed limit. This has been in discussion for
four months in committees. Having a default speed of 25
mph has many advantages and in some cases, going 15 mph
was totally unrealistic. Our police will enforce the 25
mph speed limit, as it goes into effect October 1. Beware,
go slow in our residential areas! This change will not affect
any MoDOT controlled road, downtown or our parks.
Things to watch for in the coming weeks include the paving
of the downtown parking lot beside the Post Office. The
WHS FFA chapter has adopted the beautification area at Exit
156 and they will be installing their design there to welcome
people to Waynesville. These kids and their sponsor are
great people and we thank them for this project. The City
has applied for another "Safe Routes to School"
grant to bring our sidewalk project from Westside Baptist
to the downtown bridge area, as we work to become a walkable
community. The City is beginning our budget process and
will be working on it during October and November. The Trail
of Tears project with the National Park Service is on track
and expected to be installed in the February time frame.
I have seen the exhibits and I think you will be proud of
These are very busy times for the City, as we continue to
work on flood mitigation projects and prepare for the Holiday
Season. REMEMBER TO SHOP LOCAL! It will change your community.

Mayor of Waynesville

celebration at the St. Robert Community Center. This year's
"Halloween in the Park" will be held on Friday,
October 24, 2014, starting at 6:00 p.m. As in years past,
this event would not be possible without the assistance
of our local businesses. This year's event will include
trick or treat goodie bags, a costume contest, food, games,
family hayrides, haunted hayrides, a bonfire, and more.
We are asking our local business owners to help us with
monetary donations, donations of candy, or game sponsorship.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Last year, the entire
event was funded by community donations. The City is striving
to make this year even better. The City would also like
to thank everyone for their continued support of this event
and of this great community. Donations can be dropped off
at Tiger Typhoon Aquatic Center or mailed to 194 Eastlawn
Ave., Ste. A, St. Robert, MO 65584. If you would like to
sponsor a game or activity or if you have any questions,
