This week on KBIA’s arts/culture segment Off the Clock, KBIA producer Meredith Turk hangs out in rodeo culture with this year’s Miss Teen Rodeo queen, and finds out why she’s one of the only rodeo competitors you’ll ever see wearing a helmet … and she wears it well.

Also, when you think of church—going, you probably aren’t thinking of skateboards, roller blades,  and ramps. But a nondenominational church in downtown Moberly is providing a place for kids and teens to skate, hang out, stay warm, and get some exercise during the winter months. Mark Bergin reports on Moberly’s weekly KidzSkate program on this week’s Off the Clock. You can see his full story here.
