Football Commenators Say the Most Useless Things [SURVEY]

"If they want to win the game, they need to score more points." Yes, that was a professional commentator's opinion this weekend during the Florida Gators and Tennessee Volunteers game. I will even put my neck out there and say that it really isn't much of an opinion: it's a fact, right? Some commentators are better than others, but most of them always have something cliche or useless to say during the game.

Skyline PTA Bans Sweets at Class Parties, Will Provide Healthy Snacks for Kids

This week, my son received a letter addressed to parents of Skyline Elementary students stating that the Skyline Parent Teacher Association (PTA) wanted to make some changes to class parties this year. The PTA wants to conform to the new Health Wellness Program that the Sedalia School District adopted last year and have asked parents to not provide any foods like cupcakes, cookies, candy or treat bags for any class parties. The Skyline PTA will now provide every child in every class with pretzels, Cheez-Its and juice instead.

The NFL Should Not Delay Games for Weather [OPINION]

The NFL season is young, but I'm already seeing a trend this year that I really don't want to see anymore. There have already been three games delayed or suspended due to weather. The NFL used to play games in any condition. Last Sunday (Sept. 15), there were two delays; Tampa Bay vs New Orleans and then San Francisco vs Seattle.

What is Your Favorite Video Game Ever? [SURVEY]

Earlier this week it was National Video Game Day. I'm a huge video game nerd AND I play all kinds of different games, from RPGs to sports games, from the Super Nintendo to the Xbox 360. I don't even want to know how many hours of my life I've spent playing video games. What I didn't know was that Doug is an even bigger video game nerd.

Should Sedalia School Board Be Able to Continue the Athletic Complex Proposal Without Full Private Funds? [POLL]

There have been a lot of people that asked questions about the new Smith-Cotton High School stadium being proposed. While many have said that the complex has become outdated and needs upgrades or replacing, some have pointed out that in the process of the Sedalia School District getting the tax levy to build the high school, the athletic complex was cut out of the project in order for the levy to pass after it failed several times. It's their opinion the project shouldn’t be done with any public funds.
