(Update) Nice aggregation of user-generated content (Flickr, craigslist), straight news (local papers) and public records. Tons of public records. Nice possibilities for residents and journalists alike, as far as mining data.

But a great start overall. I just wish there was a Columbia, Mo. site so I could really judge how much more it brings to the table compared to your average news coverage.
