The first is from March 4 through March 7 when students will club plastic snakes with large decorative sticks called shillelaghs. On March 13, a Missouri S&amp;T student portraying St. Pat will arrive in downtown Rolla with his court aboard the traditional manure spreader.</p> Mon, 04 Mar 2013 15:56:18 +0000 Associated Press 29820 at http://kbia.org CoMo Weekender - St. Patrick's Day Edition ft.
