City considers incentive district
June 15, 2006
The future of Eudora business might lie directly to the east. In an effort to stay ahead of and entice commercial development, city officials are toying with the idea of setting up a tax increment financing district, or TIF district, near East 10th Street.

Underdogs, amazing plays make World Cup a joy
June 15, 2006
The timing couldn’t have been worse for me. This little piece was supposed to be a bit of a push to get people on board with why I like the game of soccer and why they should at least take a little time to watch the planet’s biggest sporting event happening this month in Germany. The World Cup is an exciting event which I personally have enjoyed since 1990, and all the excitement concerning this year’s event was getting to me, but then something funny happened on the way to my computer.
The Fly Route

This is supposed to be the anti-soccer column. I’m supposed to spout off about how soccer is boring and stupid, highlight-less and insane. But I’m not going to do that. I’m not going to call soccer a scoreless-snore fest even though the average number of goals per game was barely above two through 14 games.
Eudora soccer fans play any way they can
June 15, 2006
While the world gathers in Germany to watch the best players in the world play on fields of plush grass, Eudora junior Anthony Barta and other members of the Cardinal soccer team gather to play the game the world covets, only on Wednesday nights, the surface they play on is a little more tough, tough as in a concrete basketball court. Barta, the Cardinal varsity goalkeeper, along with brothers Connor and Logan Hartpence, travel to Lawrence’s Holcomb Park on Wednesday nights to play a variation of the game the world will watch in droves.

The world’s most popular sport is spreading across the U.S. and Eudora
June 15, 2006
Every four years the world stops. Shops close, people of all occupations find excuses to get themselves out of work and national pride swells to new levels. It is the World Cup, the planet’s largest and most celebrated sporting event and in the years ending in zero, four and eight it devours the world’s attention.
Atmosphere, tickets lure pair to World Cup
June 15, 2006
Given that a World Cup soccer game typically lasts a little more than 90 minutes, and Nuremburg, Germany, is approximately 5,000 miles from Eudora, the simple math of Doug Henderson and his son Duncan’s trip doesn’t exactly make sense. But it won’t be about one moment, one game or one experience when the father-son duo heads to the World Cup, Doug said.

The workshop nestled behind DC Custom Crafted Cycle’s Main Street storefront was silent Friday evening. Normally the garage would have been filled with sounds of shop owner Matt Montgomery shaping a part or tweaking a piece of his almost-complete chopper dominating the center of the room.

Local teacher contemplates value of career
June 15, 2006
This year in the Eudora school district there has been a surge of unrest among teachers. Feelings of anger, hopelessness, betrayal, denial and outrage have filtered through the buildings. Voices have been raised with the passion of a church choir singing, “Teachers make more than money. We teach because we love our students/our subject/our community/our future. We teach because we care.”
