Pictures: Sedalia Police Place First in Cardboard Boat Race

Sedalia Police, Sedalia Fire, and Sedalia School 200 administrators battled each other in a cardboard boat race in Sedalia Middle School's pool. The Police Department finished first, The Fire Department Second, and Sedalia 200 school officials last. At the end of the event students in attendance were chanting for certain people to jump in the pool, including Principal Brett Hieronymus. Our Randy Kirby snapped some photos of the event.

Is Sedalia Really This Boring, Or Are We Just Cynical?

I recently asked what are the best places to take bored visitors around Sedalia. There were some seriously good ideas about where you could take bored visitors. But just as many sarcastic, somewhat negative comments. Sure, Sedalia isn't a bustling metropolis like Kansas City. But it's still a generally nice small town. Read on and judge are we really this boring, or just cynical about what our town has to offer.
