It’s not all bad news, folks!
Although we’ve had our share this year, there are also plenty of good, heartwarming stories that tend to get overshadowed by the not so good.
Well, not today!
Here are some good news stories from right here in Sedalia and around Missouri that we hope lifts your spirits and brightens your mood.
Float on up to the movie screen
If there’s anything this pandemic has taught us, it’s how to use our ingenuity to come up with new ways to do old things. In our opinion, a floating cinema is as ingenious as they come!
The event, made possible by Beyond Cinema, will allow parties of up to 8 to rent a boat and row on up to the movie screen (as long as you’re staying socially distanced from other parties).
Lucky Sedalia man wins the lottery!
Stephen Taylor of Sedalia entered the Lucky for Life Draw Game and became the first winner of the game in Missouri.
Oh, just $1,000-a-day-for-life!
Taylor’s winning ticket matched all 5 of the white numbers as well as the Lucky Ball number. The winning numbers were 1, 6, 16, 27 and 34, with a Lucky Ball number of 2.
Compassionate first-grader feeds the homeless
Inspired by books she read at school, first-grader Paris Williams decided she wanted to help those in need, particularly the homeless in her area.
When she advised her mom that she wanted to help, they decided to make care packages for the homeless.
Paris and her parents made and delivered, without contact, over 500 care packages.
Have you spotted Bruno the Bear?
Are you one of the 27,000 members in Bruno’s Facebook group that have been keeping up with him?
Bruno is a black bear that was initially spotted on May 10th in Wisconsin and has since trekked through Illinois and made his way to our great state of Missouri.
Bruno has become somewhat of a celebrity with people looking to spot and snap a picture with him—at a safe distance, of course.
Dog travels over 50 miles to previous home
As the saying goes, home is where the heart is. Apparently, Cleo’s heart hadn’t fully left her previous home, though.
Cleo, a 4-year-old Labrador Retriever, went missing one day and her owners didn’t know where to begin looking for her.
Unbeknownst to them, Cleo had traveled over 50 miles to a home they moved from close to 2 years ago. According to the home’s new owners, they arrived home one day and Cleo was laying on the front porch.
We hope these heartwarming stories provided just a little bright spot to your day.
