Welcomed home —gain and again
January 9, 2003
Although Christmas has come and gone, I would like to say a word about the first-ever Eudora Home Tour Dec. 15. I do so especially because it benefits the upcoming American Cancer Society’s Eudora Relay for Life event slated for June 6-7. The tour not only provided a jump start to our relay, but it also provided more than 80 Eudorans, a cancer survivor, Mary Higgins, and her friends from Lawrence, along with several other out-of-towners, a thoroughly enjoyable start to the Christmas holiday season.

Best candidates produced from large fields
January 9, 2003
Although we are only 10 days from the filing deadline for this spring’s City Council/School Board elections, few have taken the formal step needed to finalize their candidacy. We hope that is only normal procrastination and not indicative of a local unwillingness to seek public service.
mid-winter ‘ahhs’
January 9, 2003
Despite the still-early arrival of darkness that can bring on the case of the “blahs,” this colorful sunset gave Eudorans something to “aah” about Tuesday afternoon. Looking west from Church and 23rd streets, the southerly setting winter sun silhouetted a Eudora water tower and power lines that lie north of Eudora High School. The early sunsets, however, mean star-gazers have a better opportunity to observe Saturn, the bright, steady yellow “star” that has been rising in the east as the sun sets. In February, Jupiter will be the bright “star” opposite the sunset.
Council, Board seats up for election
January 9, 2003
Although gubernatorial and Kansas House candidates from Eudora gave the August primary and November’s general election a local twist, this spring’s elections will give Eudorans a chance to vote for their neighbors for the Eudora City Council and the Eudora USD 491 Board of Education.

Cards hit sour note with 44-49 loss

City pumping for water ideas
January 9, 2003
The city’s water plant was able to handle the 20.628 million gallons Eudora residents and businesses used last July, but if the town’s population continues to grow in the next five to 10 years, the city might find itself tapped out. After all, since 1985 water production for July, which sees a large amount of usage, increased by nearly 232 percent.
