OK - from the only thing I could find that you posted on 10/26 it sounds to me like it's a hamburger with peanut butter?

Default Sedalia

I think Sedalia is a nice little town. What I like about it the most is that it is on the Katy Trail. It does get cold in winter, and has ice and snow, but I think the winter is a bit shorter than it is in New England. Missouri weather is very changeable. If you don't like the weather, just wait a minute.

Default Goober

GooberBurgers have warm melted peanut butter spread on the meat pattie with sliced tomato,lettuce, mayo and can't remember everything they garnish it with. They are delicous though. I worked on the fountain there in 1956. i heard a rumor they were tearing it down to make more room for the hi-ways. They changed there minds after a croup of upset people talked to the city. They are going to keep running the Wheel Inn, It is also a national land mark in Sedalia now. Jimmers115

Default Sedville

I lived there for 27 years.

It's an old town and seems to prefer to stay that way. Not many real professional opportunities... Lots of factory work.

The town is cheap to live in and the Community College is great, as is reflected by it's expansions over the last ten years. There's a wonderful art program there, encompassing theater and fine arts. The college is home to the Daum Museum of Fine Art, which is gaining an internationally acclaimed reputation.

It will suck you in...

And I miss the goober burgers, as well as LeMaire's Cajun restaurant.

You'll find a lot of great BBQ joints, as well, notably Kehde's BBQ on South 65, right accross from the Missouri State Fair, and Dickie-Doo BBQ, further south on 65 just outside the city limits.

You can walk accross the town from city limit to city limit in less than three hours.

If you have kids, there are two private schools, St. Paul's Lutheran and Sacred Heart Parochial. Spend the extra dough and send your kids there as the Sedalia 200 public school district is right on par with anything Al Capone thought up.

Aside from that, the town was founded on the cattle trade, railroads, and prostitution, allowing for an interesting history that you won't really hear about during the Ragtime festival, which is arranged by little old ladies who would likely cross to the other side of the street if they actually saw Scott Joplin walking down the sidewalk towards them (he was black, if that says anything...)

I am a current resident of Sedalia, and have been my whole life (23 years). Sedalia, in my opinion, is a small quiet town, not too much goes on around here that's seen. Though, I've never had a goober-burger(but do know what it is) or eaten at the Wheel Inn, there are some really good places to eat. LeMare's has great food, Goodies' has the best shakes, and Papa Jake's has The Best Doughs money can buy (even better the Krispy Kreme).

As for employment, Sedalia is growing, but there are hardly no jobs besides factories, fast-food restuarant, stores or gas stations. It is very hard to get a job here, because so many people are competing for that same job or the equivalent to it and have lack of something. Some say race,gender, etc. does not play a part in employment but sometimes that is not true. My fiancee and I put applications in at the same places and he was hired and I was not. Taking I have more knowledge and experience in that field, that was a little upsetting.

Talking about the school system, neither the public schools nor the private schools can really compete when it comes to too many things. If a person is going to succeed, then it is on them to succeed. I know a lot of "private school" students who do worse things then I a "public school" student would even think of, it's just kept "Secret". Oppps, did I say that? No Al Capone at the high school that I went to.

If this is the place that you choose to live, I say go for it. We'll welcome you, somehow
