Rec director job needs further examination
July 20, 2006
As I was reading through The Eudora News about all the great events taking place in our city this past week, I was taken aback by one story in particular left off the front page. Apparently, the decision to appoint Eudora Parks and Recreation director Bobby Arnold did not garner the kind of attention that so many of these other stories received; yet I believe this event needs to be more fully examined.
Baseball banter proves baffling
July 20, 2006
It’s finally over. The World Cup is done, softball season is over, and baseball season is ending this weekend. What a summer of sports activities. This summer has kept me indulged in the sport I’m most passionate about and in the sports that my kids play. One thing I have realized, as intimately as I know the game of soccer, I have much to learn about the game of baseball and softball.
Ates seems good fit for Eudora
July 20, 2006
The 18-month search for a new Eudora fire chief came to an end last week with the hiring of Randal Ates. His hiring was in sharp contrast to the division on the council that greeted Mayor Tom Pyle’s past nominations.

TIF district nest egg may spur growth
July 20, 2006
To help push the possible development of a tax increment financing district in Eudora, the city would need what Eudora City Administrator Cheryl Beatty described as a bird in hand. The bird –- or expressed commercial interest for the project –- is already there, Beatty said.
Attendance could offset yearly costs
July 20, 2006
Should a new $3.8 million recreation center and pool complex pass during an Aug. 1 referendum, the cost of managing and maintaining the new structures could thrust the city into relatively unknown fiscal waters. While the new facility would run smoother with modern equipment, other factors would influence the recreation complex’s bottom line. Among those factors is how the city decides to shop.

Swanson plans winning season for EHS
July 20, 2006
It could have been the hundred-degree heat or the pressure of being the new starting quarterback that made Eudora High School senior Kent Swanson sweat at the 7-on-7 passing drills Monday evening in De Soto. But considering his confident demeanor, it was probably just the heat.
Summer of misery seventy years ago tested endurance of Eudora, Midlands
July 20, 2006
That the river had any water for Leon Coker’s use was surprising, considering the year of his graduation was essentially a summer without rain in Kansas and sweltering heat, marking it as the worst of the hot and dry decade that came to be known as the Dirty Thirties.
Horsethief Run draws large group of runners
July 20, 2006
By 6:30 a.m. Saturday, cars started filling the parking lot and people began stretching in preparation for either the two-mile track or four-mile trail at the annual Horsethief Run at Eudora High School.
Summer hardware
July 20, 2006
Eudora High School senior Brittney Graff is somewhat modest. She doesn’t like to brag about being the four-mile overall female winner of the Horsethief Run Saturday or about how she has broken numerous school cross country and track records. She doesn’t boast about being named a Class 4A all-academic athlete last year and having a 4.0 grade point average.
