Donors responsible for the event have added charitable contributions to the purpose of the express since it was initially made a part of the KCS line in the 1990’s.

December 17th, the train, and Santa will arrive in Higginsville around 4 p.m. at the depot. It will remain open as long as there are people in line.

Second round of winter weather may affect Monday commute

MoDOT - Winter weather conditions will continue through Sunday night, and a second round of mixed precipitation is expected to spread across much of Missouri early Monday morning and continue throughout the day. The Missouri Department of Transportation is recommending that people delay their Monday morning commute or stay home if possible. This second wave has the potential to produce more snow, ice and freezing rain. There is also a possibility of refreezing Monday afternoon.

MoDOT crews are treating roads and bridges and will remain on duty until the winter weather is finished and the roads are clear.

My husband found a black, male cat, approximately 1 to 2 years old near Salt Creek, just north of Sweet Springs earlier this week. He is a very tame cat who is quite used to being loved and is litter box trained. He doesn't mind our other cats and dogs. If someone lost this precious pet, please contact Paula Gallup at 660-624-5960 and we will arrange to get him back home.
Thank you for giving us yard of the month. We have being trying hard to have a great yard. Thanks for noticing.
Thank you Kathy Dohrman for inviting me to this page. How exciting! Hello Sweet Springs Friends! 😁
