Right now we're doing a poll to see who people think is the Sedalia Person of the Year. Because Tuffy the Clown is one of the nominees and leading vote getter right now, this thing has really blown up and made national news. I find it a little funny that as big as this thing has gotten and as clearly as I've been explaining it, there are still quite a few people who don't understand what our Person of the Year Award is about.
