Jack’s Mid-Missouri Memories: The Roundhouse

The Roundhouse
A lot of people think a railroad is just trains, depots and tracks, but the truth is they consist of many parts, and Sedalia had them all at one time. Some of those parts, unlike the depots and trains, have disappeared completely, and it made me wonder how many people remember those that are no longer here.

Tell Us About Your Easter Traditions and Memories

One of my favorite holidays of the year is Easter. It brings back a lot of great memories. Being an Air Force Brat, I can recall doing a few Easter Egg hunts with the youth center or a few squadron parties or even at the base church. I also have the great memories of waking up on Easter Morning and seeing the eggs hidden around the house or in the backyard if the weather was good.

I am still hearing about this story that appeared in the Sedalia Democrat Feb. 29, 2000. It was even popular with those too young to remember when the park was still around.

Jack’s Mid-Missouri Memories: “Mom Was a Riveter Too”

Everyone has heard about "Rosie the Riveter.”  Well, my mother was a riveter too.  She didn't put planes or tanks together, but like Rosie, it was hard work done by hand, for not much pay, and it helped her win her own private war.

Jack’s Mid-Missouri Memories: “The Monsters That Lived Down The Street”

This Mid-Missouri Memory is about a special love in my life. Those smoke belching, steam spitting trains that ran through Sedalia while I grew up just two blocks away. Was anything more frightening, and at the same time more fascinating to small children? I don’t think so.
