You have a chance to push the button and blow up the old Champ Clark Bridge.
The Louisiana Community Betterment Association is sponsoring a contest where two winners will be chosen to detonate the charges and drop the old bridge into the Mississippi River. Tickets are available from Louisiana Community Betterment for five dollars each or three for ten dollars. Proceeds go toward emergency responders in Louisiana. One name will be drawn from Missouri and one name from Illinois. The drawing is October 15th. A demolition date for the old bridge has not been set.
