If you are driving down 16th Street from Highway 65 to Thompson Blvd., you may notice a tree on top of the construction site of the Sedalia Fire Department. I've had countless people ask me what that is about, and we now have the answer for it

Jack’s Mid-Missouri Memories: Downtown Sedalia Tour

As a nostalgia nut, I am always happy to talk about my days growing up in Sedalia, and I love to hear or see something that triggers a memory from those days. On Monday, June 24, I got a good dose of nostalgia as I took the tour of downtown Sedalia with the Sedalia City Council and some other interested citizens.

Jack’s Mid-Missouri Memories: Poll Hall Memories

People ask me how I can remember all the things I write about that happened so long ago, and I have to admit, I get a lot of help from old friends.  For instance. Dick Prisendorf, a childhood friend of mine came up with a memory we share one day. The memory was about the old Play-more pool hall, a place that played a large part in both our childhoods.

Jack’s Mid-Missouri Memories: A Close Shave

I guess a memory can come from anywhere. That fact was proved to be true on Thursday as Doug and I discussed his recently shaved beard that he grew in support of the Detroit Red Wings. Unfortunately, Doug’s team spirit only carried them so far and his team was defeated. So it was that on Wednesday, June 12, 2013, a day that will forever be remembered by the Sokolowski family as the day daddy became recognizable again, Doug had a shave.

Jack’s Mid-Missouri Memories: You Could See It on the Radio

The memory here is actually two memories. It is as much about my grandfather Clarence Wickliffe as it is about the radio. The two are inseparable, because I can not think of one without the other. My grandfather died when I was very young, but I know from the stories my mother has told me through the years, that he was a man who loved his children and grandchildren very much. The story below is one of the few clear memories I have of him, and I often think my life would surely have been enriched had he lived to watch me grow to manhood.

Jack’s Mid-Missouri Memories: Things I Miss and Things I Don’t

When older people who grew up together talk, there is sure to be the inevitable comparison of today to the good old days of their youth and how much they miss one thing or another. I join them in missing those less complicated times, but I wonder if the reason we miss them could have more to do with our ages than the fact that times were better.

Jack Miller’s Mid-Missouri Memories: First Car, First Love

I believe a man has two first loves in his life: one is a girl and the other is a car. I also believe sometimes the love for that car and the memory of it outlasts the first girl.

What Decade Had the Best Music? [POLL]

On Sunday night, I had a moment where I actually thought I was an old man. As I sat watching the Billboard Music Awards, I remember mumbling multiple old man phrases to myself.  Things like, "This music is garbage," "Does anyone really like this?" and "They're clearly lip syncing their performance."

Quickly after the Billboard Music Awards ended, I came to the conclusion that I'm not an old man, new music just really is that bad. I ended up having a heated argument with a few people about what generation had the best music. I made a case for the '60s, but I want you to tell me which decade had the best music.
