I, like everyone else, love to read Sedline (knowing comments are not signed), where the writers have come up with the idea that I will support smoking in certain public places. Yes, I do support leaving the private clubs and the bars that do 70 percent of their gross sales with liquor by the drink sales. Restrictions, with teeth (if I have my way), will be in place to monitor the bars. All others, including bingo at the VFW and Moose Lodge will come under the smoking ordinance. Yes, I would like to see the final draft placed on the ballot for a public vote at the next general election. I don’t think I have enough support with the council to get this done. Ever felt like the new kid on the block? That’d be me.

What’s going on with (Missouri House Speaker) Tim Jones and (state Rep.) Denny Hoskins? Why do we bother electing people if their bosses and the money people will just remove them if they don’t vote the way they are told? Shame on you.
The governor is for it. Health care providers are for it. Seniors are for it. Business groups are for it.
Most of you know, I am newly elected to your Sedalia City Council. I’m looking forward to being a working part of it. Exactly how this smoking thing has got on the top burner with every bar owner, bingo parlor and private club manager in Sedalia blows my mind. My phone has been ringing off the hook — one bar owner after another and major concerns with both Moose and VFW management.

“The editorial in this morning’s paper (April 13-14, “Play outrage missses CASA’s vital mission”) about “The Vagina Monologues” was excellent. Whether we like it or not, we have to admit the sexual abuse of women and children is real and we have to address it. The word ‘vagina’ is upsetting to us but it does get our attention and I think that was its intention.”
It has been an eventful first week as your editor.

Spring is here, but during its meeting on Monday the Sedalia City Council will focus on snow as it votes to approve several winter weather-related ordinances.
Spring is the time of renewal, the annual shaking off of the confines of cold and the doldrums of inactivity. Gray skies and brown lawns — or worse, dirt-dingy snow leftovers — give way to bursts of bright blue and vivid green. The warmth of the sun injects vitality into our lives, filling us with promise of the season ahead. Spring means baseball and firing up the grill and fresh air.
