Councilman Larry Stevenson Epitomizes Unprofessionalism at Sedalia City Council Meeting [OPINION] [VIDEO]

I would like to state first, that this is a personal opinion, and anyone who disagrees with me on the content should feel free to leave a response. As a newsman, I use opinion pieces sparingly and only if I feel they are justified.

At last night’s Sedalia City Council meeting (May 24), I witnessed what I feel was some very unprofessional behavior by newly elected 4th Ward Councilman Larry Stevenson. It is the first time since I have been covering the meetings that a council member has been ordered to sit down and be quiet numerous times. This happened last night in both the pre-council and the regular council meeting.

Would You Support a Public Smoking Ban in Sedalia? [POLL]

The Sedalia City Council is looking at drafting an ordinance that would ban smoking in public places.  There are already numerous cities that have drafted similar ordinances that ban smoking in public places, including restaurants and bars across our country and in Missouri. Sedalia already has banned smoking at State Fair Community College and Bothwell Regional Health Center and its affiliates, city owned property also has restrictions that have been put in place.  Many businesses have made the decision on their own to prohibit smoking inside the restaurant or business.

The Funniest Moments From the 2013 White House Correspondents’ Dinner

The annual White House Correspondents' dinner took place this past weekend, and it was a delight. We honestly think it was probably the best performance at one of these dinners since Stephen Colbert roasted George W. Bush right in front of him (this makes us cringe a little bit less though). Only we aren't talking about Conan O'Brien -- we're talking about President Obama, who really hammed it up this year.
