Jack’s Mid Missouri Memories: Triggering a Memory

As I have written before, there are certain things that can trigger memories. One of those things for me is driving through the old neighborhood I grew up in. I did that a few days ago, and it brought forth a lot of memories. This time the memories came from an old brick house that stood on the corner of 5th and New York. I say stood, because it has been demolished and was just a pile of bricks with its broken roof resting precariously on top of them.

Jack’s Mid-Missouri Memories: “Walking Ohio”

Sedalia seemed huge before everyone owned a car or had access to one. Most people took a bus or walked to town in the '40s and '50s. There were cars then too, of course, but not enough to cause traffic jams in Sedalia. There was not much need for personal transportation, when a bus ride was a nickel and a transfer would let you ride all over Sedalia for that one fare. My uncle Bill Wickliffe drove a bus in those days, and I liked sitting right behind him so I could watch him maneuver that big machine around tight corners without running over everything.  Riding the bus was almost a social activity in those days, and a lot of gossip was shared on those slow rides to downtown Sedalia.

Easter Candy Favorites [POLL]

Kids, it's getting to be that time of year: Easter. And I know when I was a kid, I looked forward to that basket just as much as I looked forward to the bigger crowds at Sunday Church.

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.

Jack’s Mid-Missouri Memories: Tin Cans and the War Effort

Tin Cans and the War Effort
In 1944, I attended the first grade at Washington School in Sedalia, Mo. World War II was in full swing. Everywhere you looked there were signs exhorting all Americans to do their part to win the war. The signs warned us to not give away secrets, because "loose lips sink ships," and although I had no idea what secret I might have that would do that much harm,  I vowed to keep it to myself anyway.

Jack’s Mid-Missouri Memories: “Washington Park”

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.
