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 Miller: Why I Support Sedalia’s Proposed Smoking Ban [OPINION]

While I attempt to stay as neutral as possible on issues I cover for the news, sometimes comments on an issue beg to be addressed. One of those issues is the smoking ban, that has been cussed and discussed to death both in the city council meetings and in the media, including in my news reports.

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.

Jack Miller’s Final Healthy Heart Update

This is my final updated from my rehab period. For those who may not know or remember, I had a heart attack on January 9 and had two stints put in the vessels of my heart. I feel fortunate that what I received was a warning that I have not been treating my body well. During the last few months, I have been going through 36 sessions of physical rehab at the Bothwell Regional Health Center. I have now completed that rehab, and feel like I am very much improved, although still well over the weight limit for a pony.

Jack’s Mid Missouri Memories: The High Chair

The High Chair
On cold winter mornings I sometimes think back to when I was a small child sitting in front of an old wood cook stove. In that memory, I am sitting in the handmade wooden high chair my grandfather Wickliffe built just for me. Mom always pulled it up close to the stove where I would be warm, and she could give me some attention between stirring the gravy and flipping the eggs.

Jack’s Mid-Missouri Memories: Mom’s Driving Lesson

Mom’s Driving Lesson
Learning to drive the smooth-operating cars of today, with their automatic transmissions and hydraulic brakes, is a snap compared to the rough-handling ones of the days of our mothers and fathers.

Jack Miller’s Mother’s Day Poem for Mothers

Mother’s Day is coming soon, and I always like to write a poem for my late mother to help me through the sadness of not having her here anymore. Knowing how giving mom always was, I know she would want to share the poem with all the other mothers out there.
