“Todd Akin in his apology said he had offended some people. His ignorance offends me.”

“It is with narrow-minded people as it is with narrow-neck bottles — the less they have in them, the more noise it makes coming out. Todd Akin is a narrow-minded person.”

“(Todd Akin) is not politically correct; he says what he believes is true, and I believe him too. I would vote for him for president in a minute. He doesn’t talk out of both sides of his mouth at one time.”

“Being a Christian doesn’t give a person a right to say someone should or shouldn’t have an abortion, especially if they have been raped. And I would like to know what way a woman’s body has to prevent pregnancy during rape. ... Men should never make any rules or laws about a woman’s body — they don’t know what they are talking about.”

“Why hasn’t the mayor and the City Council gotten in touch with the Missouri Pacific Railroad about the bridge, and explained the bridge to them, and asked them to open up one or two roads that are now closed on the north side until the bridge can be repaired? Quit playing with people’s lives in the event of a fire on the north side.”

“Buildings in downtown Sedalia have been falling down for many years. Did it not occur to the Sedalia Public Library board members and director that maybe their 110-year-old building needed to be structurally inspected? Now we taxpayers could be responsible for more than $1 million in repairs.”

“In regard to Mr. Parkhurst’s column about dress at the state fair then and now, I wish he would do one on dress at church then and now.”

“Mitt Romney supports Ryan’s budget, the headlines read. That means to overhaul Medicare, cutting trillions from social programs for our fellow Americans ... remember this when you vote in November.”

“Pray that nothing happens to President Obama. How does President Joe Biden sound?”

“After reading Bill Gordon’s opinion about health care and then reading Ken Bird’s opinion about health care, my first thought was, one of these guys has to be wrong. But after thinking about it some more, I thought maybe there is some truth in both opinions. Maybe the health care business has demanded too high a profit, and maybe the government has promised more than it can deliver. I hope that maybe we can find some middle ground to solve this problem.”

“We’re retired military and not the rich 2 percent, but our health care insurance just went up $39 but our pay will not. Thank you, Obamacare.”

“‘The test of our progress is not whether we add more to those who have much, it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little.’ This was by Franklin Roosevelt.”

“Don’t you dare spend $1 million to fix (the Sedalia Public Library). Tear it down; for $1 million you could build a state-of-the-art building up there. The past is the past, let it go.”

“Buy a fire truck that fits the building, make the building handicap accessible and add a bathroom for women you haven’t even hired, you’ll save millions to fix the bridge and the library, which the city owns. Makes too much sense for this city.”

“Anyone in the Otterville area, beware of the Otterville dog posse.”

“Looks to me like the state fair needs to rethink their races and all. Plus, what’s a 15-year-old kid doing driving anything?”

“I think this Clarenden Road and Thompson Boulevard should all be the same thing — either change it all to Thompson Boulevard or Clarendon Road. We have too many little short streets.”

“Too bad the U.S. is going to hell in a handbasket with all these whiny kids up in Washington. They need to go home and get educated before they try to run a country.”

“Jefferson City and Warrensburg public schools can break even on the school food service. Why can’t Sedalia? It can be done without a food service company.”

“The Aug. 18-19 Spotlight section: The pictures of the kids on the front of that section were beautifully done, and the photographer for that (Sydney Brink) deserves a round of applause.”

“We sure miss the time and temperature number.”
