Kracls join forces one last time
July 15, 2004
Erin and Lauren Kracl are enjoying one final run together. The sisters’ Francis Sporting Goods club volleyball team recently returned from the national tournament in Houston where they earned a respectable 11th-place finish. “We didn’t do as well as I would have liked, but we competed a little bit,” Lauren Kracl said. “It was great. You see so many great players from around the country. You see the best of the best there.” Although heading in different directions, the summer experience means similar things for both Kracls. Lauren is prepping for a freshman campaign at Missouri Western State College.
Community to miss presence of ‘icon”
July 15, 2004
The community will be poorer next week with the departure of a man that two generations of Eudora students have known as coach and teacher.

Summer drought drying up stock at local food pantry
July 15, 2004
The cupboard’s nearly bare at a local food pantry, and volunteers are appealing to Eudorans for help. Volunteer Laura Klotz said last week the Eudora Ministerial Alliance’s food pantry, housed at St. Paul United Church of Christ, was in dire straits despite a spring food drive organized by local Scouting groups. And summer was a bad time for supplies to dry up, Klotz said. “That’s when a lot of families need help, because the kids are at home,” she said.

HomeTown Dollar stocked with aspirin to zany toys
July 15, 2004
There’s a new general store in downtown Eudora. But in place of horseshoes and overalls Eudorans might have found at the general stores of yesteryear, shoppers at HomeTown Dollar will find items from soup ladles to greeting cards to nail polish. Owner Genny Rose hopes HomeTown Dollar will be a place where locals can stop in and pick up necessities ranging from toilet paper to wrapping paper.
Eudora posse helping Outlaws
July 15, 2004
William Quantrill led an infamous band of outlaws in the burning of Lawrence in 1863. Now, more than 140 years later, it’s the Lawrence Outlaws that are on fire. The Outlaws — an American Legion baseball team — is in the midst of a tremendous summer season. And five current or recently graduated Eudora Cardinals are members of the gang: Rod Evinger, Chris Gabriel, Joe Kaup, Cole Massey and Aaron Westerhouse.
