Frozen Cola Rekindles Doug’s Youth

The temperatures have been hot during this last week. I think it's interesting to see how people try to stay cool. I've read about how people have had air conditioning running non-stop, fans circulating as best as possible and ice cold drinks overflowing with ice. However, I came across something the other day that Jack Miller would call something that triggers a Mid-Missouri Memory. I went into the new Casey's General Store on South 65 in Sedalia after coaching the soccer team. I went in to get some Gatorade, and as I walked by the beverage section, I saw something I haven't tasted since I was a kid: frozen cola.

Ice Cream Truck Reminds Me of My Youth

On Saturday (Aug. 24), saw and heard something that I haven't seen or heard in a long time: the sound of an ice cream truck coming into the neighborhood. It reminded me of my youth, living in Germany, where after school I would keep my allowance and spend it on ice cream or candy

Jack’s Mid-Missouri Memories: Mother’s Oats Surprises

This story came out of a conversation I had with my sister-in-law, Joyce Jeffries. It is a memory we share, even though we grew up a long way from each other. It sometimes takes someone else to shake a memory loose, and I always enjoy rediscovering them again, as much as I hope those who read them do.

The Pettis County Museum: A Hidden Sedalia Treasure [INTERVIEW]

I think that many of us who live here in Pettis County and the Sedalia area are folks who have been here most of our lives.  Sure, there's some people who have come in from other towns or out of state, but more often than not, I see the same people here that were here 10 years ago.  That's part of what keeps our tradition and our heritage rich.

Jack’s Mid-Missouri Memories: Pop’s Workshop and His Ragged Old Cat

Well, it's happened again! There is a ragged old cat hanging around my house that someone has probably dropped off thinking that it's the place for cats. It is not a pretty cat, and it looks as if it had lost a few fights along the way. It is a skittish cat, and runs at the sight of me.  The thing is that it reminds me of a cat my father-in-law had, so I have started to leave extra food in my other cats bowl for it. I guess I have a soft spot for ragged old cats thanks to the one my father-in -law who had one in his work shop. It made me think that everyone needs one in their shop. When the old yellow cat showed up, it reminded me of this memory, and if you too are someone who likes ragged old cats, maybe you will like it.

Jack’s Mid-Missouri Memories: Fair Again

Some people wonder where I get ideas for my "Mid-Missouri memories." One of those sources is in town right now, and like most people in Sedalia, there are a lot of memories through those gates of the Missouri State Fairgrounds. As someone who grew up in Sedalia, it would be strange if I didn’t have a lot of merry-go-round and roller coaster memories from that yearly event. The main memories I have however, have nothing to do with fair rides.

100-Year-Old WWII Veteran Finally Gets His Free Haircut from Dick’s Barber Shop [PHOTOS]

Brian Dick of Dick's Barber Shop in historic Downtown Sedalia had to pay up a bet up to World War II veteran Walter "Mac" McBride. Mac has been going to Dick's Barber Shop for years, and when Brian's dad Frank Dick retired, he told Brian that he never once got a free haircut from Frank. This was about four years ago, and Mac asked Brian when he would give him one. Brian told Mac when he turns 100 years old, he would give him a free haircut.

Jack’s Mid-Missouri Memories: Little Surprises

Rummaging through my files the other day, I ran across a memory that I wrote around 11 years ago when my granddaughter Shelbi, the daughter of my oldest son Darren and his wife Terrinda, was the only little one for my wife and I to spoil
