A fresh(man) approach
Eudora freshman Bailey Scott relies on her speed to leadoff
April 27, 2006
Freshman outfielder Bailey Scott sprinted toward the falling ball, hollered loud to warn off her teammates and arrived in time to make the grab. It was it was seemingly routine play for an outfielder, but when Scott returned to the dugout, she found a bench full of bewildered and excited teammates.
Another way to rein in pump shock
April 27, 2006
Last week as I was reading a Malaysian newspaper online, I came across the headline that indicated gasoline prices would not go up this year. How I wished that would be the case here. The sensitivity that the gas prices are to speculation is beyond my comprehension. I don’t know of any other commodity that fluctuates so much without a reasonable cause.
Correct means needed to protect property rights
April 27, 2006
When the Legislature began the 2006 session in January, they were assumptions there would be measures introduced to protect property rights in response to a U.S. Supreme Court ruling from June 2005 that allowed the use of eminent domain for economic development. And indeed, an amendment to the state constitution was introduced only to fail. The House then passed a bill that would have the Legislature review all cases where eminent domain was used for economic development. The Senate hasn’t acted as lawmakers return for the wrap-up session this week.

If Eudora Fish were alive today, she might develop an ego –- or at least a warm welcome from the town bearing her name. A series of monthly events are being planned from now until EudoraFest 2007 to raise money for a statue of Eudora and her father: Chief Paschal Fish.

KU Relays offer powerful experience
April 27, 2006
Improvement is a constant theme when it comes to track and field. The athletes practice day-in and day-out to finish a little better than they did the meet before. For four members of the Eudora track team, the opportunity to improve came on one of the biggest stages of the year as junior Brittney Graff, sophomores Lauren Colman and Emily Ballock and senior Megan Ballock took to the track Friday for the Kansas Relays at Kansas University’s Memorial Stadium in Lawrence.

Baseball remains unbeaten
April 27, 2006
During the Cardinals’ regular practice routines last week, head coach Dirk Kinney didn’t like what he saw. In fact he wasn’t sure his baseball team was up to the task of its next opponent or any opponent for that matter. As it turned out, he needn’t have worried as the Cardinals traveled to Wellsville Thursday and took a week’s worth of frustration out on the Eagles.
